Spanish classes. Basic, intermediate and advanced levels. Conversation and grammar, all ages
Me especializo en que el estudiantes logre mantener una conversacion fluida en español utilizando la hora de clase para mejorar pronunciacion y fluidez. A la vez se le brinda al estudiante una guia practica donde se le explicara la gramatica y podra hacer infinitos ejercicios practicos que le ayuden a mejorar su comprension y analisis de texto. Tambien trabajamos con imagenes, sonidos y videos para que el estudiante logre reconocer, interpretar por el mismo y mejorar su capacidad auditiva. En los niveles basicos e intermedios utilizo un sistema donde el estudiante pueda escuchar, copiar y repetir informacion similando el inicio de aprendizaje de su idioma natal. Asigno tareas despues de cada leccion e informo el progreso del estudiante mes a mes.I specialize in students being able to maintain a fluent conversation in Spanish using class time to improve pronunciation and fluency. At the same time, the student is given a practical guide where the grammar will be explained and they will be able to do infinite practical exercises that will help them improve their comprehension and text analysis. We also work with images, sounds and videos so that the student can recognize, interpret for himself and improve his hearing. In the basic and intermediate levels I use a system where the student can listen, copy and repeat information similar to the beginning of learning their native language. I assign homework after each lesson and report student progress month by month

Private French lessons (open to schoolchildren and those wishing to learn French)
Hello, My name is Paul-Antoine and I live in Amsterdam where I am a student. I am currently studying at the University of Amsterdam in the PPLE bachelor (Politics, Psychology, Law and Economics). From French parents, I followed all my education in the French system abroad and I speak French fluently. In these support courses which can be academic or simply an aid to the deepening of the language, I will bring my personal culture and my recent readings which will also allow the student to discover another facet of French literature. In addition, these courses are also open to those who simply want to learn French. If you would like more information on the learning methods that I will be offering, I invite you to contact me. Regards, Paul Anthony

Learn English Grammar And Paragraph Writing for Beginners, Intermediates and advanced ( A1 / A2 / A3 / B1 / B2 / B3 / C1 / C2 )
These sessions are focused on English for people who encounter challenges in writing, speaking, reading and listening and lack correct grammar and skills. We would develop situational vocabulary, corresponding verbs and adverbs that help transmit more precision when using English.

These classes tend to take place in a more relaxed yet fun and stimulating environment. I constantly provide feedback to students about their progress and assign homework to ameliorate the practical and theoretical aspects of the English. This class is all about making English accessible and easy to learn to all through various social and interactive stimulation You may request a full refund and get your money back after your class if you believe that it doesn't suit you .

This training allows you to learn about the concepts of emotional intelligence & empathy with the aim of better recognizing and understanding your own emotions and those of others. Being aware of emotions allows better management of behavior in human relationships, both in the professional, private, entrepreneurial framework (...). For example, as a key to management, it makes it possible to: • Measure the impact of emotions in team management. • Analyze your own mode of operation to get the most out of it. • To be able to put in place strategies to regulate his own emotions and those of his collaborators. • Know how to approach delicate interviews taking into account the emotional factor. • To be able to understand, recognize and name his own emotions as well as those of his collaborators. • Discover the emotional process. • Manage the team (the impact of emotions on communication and decision making), the emotional quotient and leadership styles. • Motivate and mobilize its employees over the long term, and in particular in the context of interviews "to strong emotional potential "(reframing, motivation, problem solving, tense sessions, conflicts etc).

This training combines group activities, individual reflections, videos and scenarios. From theory to practice with simulations.

In particular simple and logical techniques, which make it possible to resolve and manage violent situations in a harmonious, effective and lasting way, for example through NVC (Non Violent Communication). • better manage negotiation situations (contrary to the stereotypes conveyed, negotiation is not only financial, but it can be small everyday events). • Match the content and form of your message while improving the use of your emotional intelligence.

Tanya
Italian, Spanish and English with a polyglot (8 languages) and Professional teacher, language coach
Hi! I'm Tanya. I was born in Italy, but for the last two years of my life I have traveled the world, mainly in Central and South America and the Middle East, traveling and working remotely. I am a professional teacher with 6 years of experience. I worked on the translation of medical and legal articles, panels in the glass museum in Venice and worked as an interpreter at the court of Venice. I have a degree in languages, certified in international law and a language coach. Language coach means that I not only teach you a language, but also how to learn new languages! I will closely monitor and monitor your entire learning journey, to get the most out of your skills! That's because I love learning new languages! That's why after years of studying I became a polyglot (8 languages - Italian, English, Spanish, French, Japanese, Arabic, Hebrew, Dutch) and I came up with a method to teach you the language you want to learn! Over the years I have learned to model my work according to the personal needs of each student and have developed a method that allows my students to learn the language in a fast and fun way. My hobby is my greatest passion is learning other languages, therefore from my experience I can understand many of the problems associated with learning a foreign language. I am also a language coach, which means that my lessons are based on a specific method that I have designed to facilitate and accelerate learning. My classes are available in Italian, English, Spanish, French, Hebrew, Dutch and Arabic. GROUP LESSONS possible! See you soon! :-)

Julia
Private lessons many subjects (school period and holidays) college-high school level
I offer weekly lessons or internship revisions, remediation by skills, upgrading for high school students, in several subjects: mathematics, French, English, German, SVT (from the 1st, see my other announcement), scientific education and philosophy (mainly subject analysis). Associate professor currently available from the National Education for family reasons (I am therefore no longer in a post in an establishment since 01/09/2021 and am no longer an employee of the EN), I have a double course literary and scientific and gives private tutoring in many subjects in video under autoentrepreneur status. With 10 years of teaching experience in secondary school, with several bac juries to my credit, and many years of experience of private lessons (including 3 years in main activity during a previous availability), I offers you my help in these different disciplines, which I am used to teaching in private lessons and which I have sometimes been asked to teach in the context of short-term replacements in college (replacements for colleagues from English and French late in having replacements appointed to their posts). My classes combine rigor and benevolence, professionalism, dynamism and humor, according to my former students, when they mention the help that I was able to provide them. I am used to working with multi-dys, AD / HD, high potential and Asperger's students as well. I insist a lot on scientific methodology and the quality of writing, in science as in literary subjects. I can help you optimize your learning and memorization techniques, help you get to the point, make mental maps. We will also work on the general organization of your work if necessary. I also and above all want to pass on to you my pleasure of learning, which continues to inspire me even today. Having given private lessons for a long time in person at home, I now want to focus on Visio lessons on Zoom, Skype, or any other videoconferencing software. I have been practicing video-format lessons since March 2020 and since then have been more equipped to ensure greater comfort for my students: headphones with microphone (quality sound), graphics tablet connected to an interactive whiteboard, camera-viewer of documents, front lighting reducing unpleasant shadows, Véléda paintings behind me. Small group lessons are also possible. If your child has a classmate who is having difficulty in the same subject, or his or her older sibling needs the same kind of help, it is possible. In this case, the price is decreasing for each participant. Please respect the reserved hours. The courses are adjustable in advance. Any course canceled less than 24 hours in advance is due at 50%. Indeed, the time that I could waste managing multiple cancellations and rescheduling of courses is time that I cannot put to the service of the success of my students. In addition, the presence of a framework, of operating rules is necessary for the investment of the students who engage in a process of accompaniment. So, I also ask you to be punctual and to start your computer and your videoconferencing software a few minutes in advance in order to start the session on time, not to waste precious minutes of class (the session will end at the time initially scheduled ... 10 minutes late means 10 minutes of lost lessons) and to respect the students who have lessons after you. I look forward to meeting you and bringing you my help and expertise.
