    Published playwright, with lots of experience teaching and working with young people and adult learners. I have worked as a writing facilitator attached to high profile theatres in London working in primary schools, with young professionals and at colleges. Additionally I lead a creative writing course at Oxford and Reading College. I have tutored many students in building confidence in speaking and writing.

    Serdane
    Cours d'Anglais pour élèves du secondaire ou adultes
    Je m'appelle Serdane et je propose des cours d'Anglais aux élèves du secondaires et adultes qui auraient du mal à développer une méthode de travail qui leur convient. Extravertie et pétillante...et surtout, beaucoup d'humour! Je pense que l'apprentissage des langues repose avant tout sur le développement d'une méthode d'apprentissage adaptée. Certains apprennent les langues de manière intuitive en se jetant dans le bain de la conversation. D'autres ont au contraire besoin de se voir exposer les concepts grammaticaux de manière rigoureuse avant de se lancer dans la conversation. Il y autant de façons d'apprendre qu'il y a d'élèves... C'est pourquoi j'adapte mes cours aux besoins de chacun, et surtout, je tente d'aider d'élève à découvrir ce qui marche pour lui afin qu'il puisse continuer à progresser de façon indépendante. Quelques mots sur mon parcours: Après des études secondaires à Saint-Boniface, j'ai fait un double bac bilingue (Fr.-Angl.) droit et sciences économiques à l'université Saint-Louis, puis un master en droit à l'UCL (terminé juin 2018) comprenant un Erasmus en Allemand à l'Université de Vienne. Ce parcours varié m'a permis de développer une méthode de travail solide. Mes domaines de compétences: - Renforcement - Rattrapage - Révisions grammaticales - Cours de conversation - Méthode de travail (organisation, planning des révisions, etc.) Mon tarif inclut un soutien scolaire complet (cours privés, la possibilité de poser des questions en dehors des heures de cours, rédaction et correction d'interrogations, etc. ).

    Cours particulier de français et anglais - aide au devoirs, soutien scolaire, préparation brevet, baccalauréat pour élèves
    Ma méthodologie se base sur l'identification des lacunes de l'élève en premier lieu. Il est indispensable d'évaluer le niveau de l'élève au préalable. En fonction de cela, des adaptations seront mises en place. Pour les élèves ayant des lacunes importantes, il convient d'abord d'y remédier. Mais non de manière ponctuelle uniquement puisqu'il s'agit généralement d'un "amas" de diverses lacunes. L'étude se fera donc selon 3 axes : l'écriture, la lecture et l'expression orale. Pour les élèves plus à l'aise, la méthode d'enseignement sera plus libre mais sera également développée selon les 3 axes précédemment mentionnés.

    Valmir
    Cours particuliers de Portugais brésilien - Anglais
    Je suis déjà diplômé en portugais-anglais, et maintenant je fais un master en communication multilingue. Je crois que la prononciation est très importante pour une bonne communication, alors j'essaie d'aider mes élèves avec ça. J'adore la grammaire et les différences grammaticales entre les langues. Je pense qu’on apprend plus quand on apprend en s’amusant.

    English tutoring (native-English speaker with CELTA qualification)
    I am a native-English speaker with a degree and a CELTA certificate. I specialise in teaching English to older students and adults, from pre-intermediate to upper-intermediate levels. My teaching focuses on contextualising English in a useful way, so that the language can be most successfully used in real life. I keep my lessons entertaining and use lots of student-focused communicative practice. I am a friendly, supportive and dedicated teacher :)

    Karla
    English Tutoring by a certified TEFL teacher from London
    As a non-native English Proficiency Speaker (C2), I am fully familiar with the difficulties of learning English as a second language and as a student I am familiar with the hardships and learning progress. I have been certified as a TESOL CERTF teacher and have had experience in giving lessons in a class of 15 students at summer language schools or 1to1 lessons! My focus during the session is to establish the target language and focus on familiarising it to the students. The class duration is 60 minutes and involves targeting the students goals but including the student's needs. I give out homework because it is my believe that 'Repetitio est mater studiorum'- repetition is the main key to making a progress in learning! I understand that learning a non-native and unfamiliar language can be overwhelming thus I try to take the class sessions slowly, including the repetition of the main problem until it is understood, however, I do like to encourage my students to push themselves to a new challenge. The classes are taught solely in English, since that is the target language!

    Valérie
    Math, Anglais, Méthode de travail (jusque 4e secondaire)
    Beaucoup d'élèves rencontrent des problèmes majeurs dans diverses matières pour une raison qui n'est pas liée au domaine lui-même, mais bien à des questions de méthodes de travail. Ayant suivi une formation de math 6, un programme d'immersion en anglais (et depuis ayant suivi un master en anglais et entretenant cette langue quotidiennement), je suis capable de cerner les difficultés d'un élève et de lui donner les clés pour réussir dans la matière qui pose problème mais également pour rendre son travail dans d'autres domaines plus efficaces grâce à des techniques d'apprentissage et une méthode de travail qui ont fait leurs preuves.
