Ilia - London$18
Trusted teacher: Having difficulties analysing poems and prose in your (I) GCSE / IB English Literature course? Looking to amp your essays up a notch and finally get that A/A* or 6/7 that you have been dreaming of? I am here to help. The first thing to remember: though analysing works of literature isn't always fun, everybody can master the techniques of how to do it. But learning takes time, which the school teacher may often lack. Indeed, it has been my own experience that English teachers often choose width over depth, and so discussions are cut short for the sake of covering all elements of the teaching programme, leaving many interesting aspects of a particular work unexplored. Or sometimes it's just the attention that wanders off as the teacher is explaining these pesky concepts of "writer's voice", "writer's tone", "meter", "rhymescheme" and so on. Let me assure you: that, too, happens even to the best of us. What I can offer you is exactly what a teacher normally does not time for: exploring a work of literature in as much detail (both analytical and technical) as it takes to push the quality of your essays up to the desired level. My approach is informed by IB / (I)GSCE Eng Lit course guidelines to make sure that the quality of your answer would be developed in accordance with what examiners want to see. Armed with a deep passion for literature on the one hand (reading and writing poems and short stories are one of my favorite things to do) and knowledge of ways of critical analysis (obtained in IB English Lit and reinforced by philosophy courses on university level) which are of tremendous importance in literary analysis as well, I will show you how to deconstruct any piece, how to place it in its cultural context, and make educated guesses about the links between cultural context and the author's choice of stylistical devices. And best of all - unlike in the classroom, the learning experience is tailored to you (based on your way of learning / remembering) and delivered in a highly interactive way! The skills described above, coupled with general essay writing tips will lend authority and style to your summative essays and exam answers, boosting your academic confidence. Ready to leave unsatisfactory essays in the past? Then contact me today!

Elise - Écublens$71
Trusted teacher: French private lessons are for students wishing: - consolidate their bases in grammar, spelling - improve their language skills (allophone students) - improve their speaking skills (conversation classes) -profect the written expression - ECR exams - prepare for the written examinations at the end of the studies (maturity, certificate of completion) - help with the writing of works of maturity (or other works of end of studies), of dissertation - work on argumentative texts - acquire a method to analyze literary texts - fill gaps - improve their spelling - prepare for oral exams (maturity, compulsory leaving certificates) - learn how to perform bibliographic research For help with writing: The objective is above all to acquire effective tools. The student will thus be able to learn to structure his ideas, argue coherently (and convincingly) and enrich his vocabulary. It is essential for me to have written work from the student between each lesson. For the corrections of end of studies work: so that the meeting with the student is at the most profitable, I ask him to send me his writings before the meeting. Apart from my presence with the student, any course involves a preparation time before and after the lesson, including the work that I correct. My goal is to design an individualized course, so I take the time to write detailed comments on corrected work or tips to ensure maximum success for everyone. For example, an editorial correction can easily be the subject of a detailed commentary of 4 typewritten pages. For adults (FLE): In order to optimally prepare the first ones, I take the initiative to inform myself in advance of their objectives / expectations. Whether to practice speaking in everyday life, the professional world or to practice oral presentations, I prepare either PPT or technical sheets in advance that I send by mail ( after booking on the website). The other alternative is to make a PV of the course that I send (or that I print). Giving importance to keeping a written record on the one hand to better memorize the topics covered, on the other hand to better assimilate the spelling. Of a general nature, a concrete situation that responds to the learner's needs is the starting point. From this situation, I address the essential grammatical points.

Trusted teacher: Dear All, Whether you are new to learning the French language, whether you wish to enrich your knowledge or whether you are aiming for its oral, written and literary mastery, I will be happy to share my passion for the French language with you. I offer private lessons adapted to your current level and your ambitions, in a pleasant and friendly atmosphere. We will cover these four key chapters together through a continuous, methodical and participatory learning process: - Grammar; - Vocabulary; - Punctuation; and - Oral pronunciation. It should be noted that the course dedicated to beginners includes a detailed and complete introduction of one hour preparing for the development of the four chapters mentioned above. In a more personalized approach and at your request, we can also address and deepen more specific topics, such as: - the syntax ; - the analysis of text(s); - literary genres; - the history of the language and its roots (Greco-Latin); - the linguistic and communicational specificities within the Francophonie; - reading a book of your choice or my recommendation (from "The Little Prince" by Saint-Exupéry to "Un Amour de Swann" by Marcel Proust). The private lessons that I offer you can, of course, be part of the continuity or the reinforcement of academic courses that you would already follow at school, at the University or elsewhere. As such, your personal media will be welcome (books, notebooks, sheets, etc.). Hoping to be able to contribute to your learning, I remain at your disposal for any further information and wish you much success in your efforts. Yours sincerely, Stephane

Samuel - Paris$45
Trusted teacher: Presentation : Professor of National Education and examiner of the BAC, I know how to make French pleasant for students in difficulty who do not hang with the subject. Whether it is to explain how to make a dissertation pleasant to read, how to organize a composed commentary or read one's text clearly, distinctly and posed for an oral. French is not only a subject, French is difficult and requires effort, but these are rewarded! Method: My students have always made significant progress, going from an average of 5 to the year to 14 average French baccalaureate. My last to have sent me his results went from 6 to the written and 9 to oral to 15 in writing and 17 in oral (EAF 2019 session). I have been preparing classes for these tests for years, I am up to date on methodology and programs. My services combine the experience of teaching French and the vivacity of a young teacher who succeeds in motivating the most recalcitrant students. My students have always made significant progress and above all, go to tests with confidence in their abilities. I adapt to your level and I give exercises to do for the next course (finish a comment, make an introductory essay ...). I am nice and enthusiastic but nevertheless serious: you will make satisfactory progress because you will work for 😉 2015-current Professor of Modern Letters in College / High School 2015-University Paris IV, The Sorbonne License of French as a Foreign Language 2014-University Paris IV, Sorbonne Master of Medieval Studies 2012-University Paris IV, The Sorbonne License of Modern Applied Letters 2010-Brevet of Aptitude to the Functions of Animator 2008-Baccalaureate series L 2006-First Aid Training Certificate

Margarita is a dedicated teacher with a friendly but focused approach. Her ability to listen and explain in your own pace makes you feel comfortable during lesson as she is ready to accommodate your needs. Having tried a few online teachers I can say I am learning and understanding the language easily with her guidance, I recommend her to everyone passionate to learn Greek as she is a real gem for me.

Teacher of IGCSE, MYP and IB English Language and Literature specialised in text analysis, academic writing and exam preparations. (Founex)
Fay
Don't think twice, just book ! Fay is an unbelievable tutor who has been helping my son with Eng LAL Internal Oral journey. Whilst we initially expected a supplement to his current teacher, to our surprise Fay has added a totally new dimension and dynamic which is evident in my son's approach and confidence towards the task. We look forward to also leveraging her experience for the pending exams.

Ziying
One could sense the passion and the engagement of Ziying with his material and ideas. Shifting from depicting classical philosophy to highlighting and exemplifying contemporary figures. It was all over an enriching showcase and I would definitely recommend Ziying for you if you're new to Philosophy and have curiosity of the subject or come with background and looking for engaging conversation.
