Critical thinking training: verbal reasoning and analytical writing

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
The skills of verbal reasoning and analytical writing are essential skills to succeed in your studies, your career and in your social life.

These abilities are learned and can be improved.

PhD in philosophy from the University of Geneva, I have developed a unique theoretical, practical and interactive teaching aimed at improving these abilities among my students.
Studies show that philosophy students perform particularly well in verbal reasoning and analytical writing.

I propose today a training in verbal reasoning and adapted analytical writing open to a wide audience.

I guide and support learners to reach fluency, speaking clearly and naturally using real-life situations through individually designed courses to get them where they want to be. The program is focused upon : 1) Pronunciation Training -  Speak Clearly 2) General English Language Teaching - Speak Correctly 3) Conversation and Communication Skills - Speak Confidently My clients are individuals from all walks of life ranging from students to corporate executives and business owners. They all have different needs for learning the English Language. My aim is to get them communicating quickly and effectively, either in a social or business environment. At the beginning of each course, I will complete a needs analysis report with my student. I ask them why they want or need to learn the English Language. Is it for social or business reasons? If it is for business reasons, are there particular areas they need to focus on such as the language of meetings, negotiations, emails, telephone or networking? Once the needs are identified, I will customize the course and include plenty of variety in the lessons, eg, fluency, vocabulary, listening, reading and role-plays. I believe in engaging with my students and they are always encouraged to express their opinions as this is how one progresses with a language. Please let me know when is a good time to contact you for a chat to move this forward. Best regards, Dolly
