    Welcome to all ! My name is Geoffrey, I will soon be in the first year of a Master of International Law at the University of Cergy-Pontoise, after a degree in French Law obtained honors at the University of Mulhouse.

    I give individual and collective lessons, with a lot of pleasure, since some time already, in a rather wide range of subjects. My goal is to enable them to understand what they are doing, and thus prevent them from sinking into an automatic but unthinking application of what they are learning.

    I try, as much as possible, to find methods that can go to all students. To this end, in English for example, I am always accompanied by a pair, to allow the student to have two points of view, two different explanations to enable him to better understand what is in question.

    Do not hesitate, in any case, to contact me for more details!

    About Me

    Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
    My name is Geoffrey, I am 22 years old and I am currently in master 1 of international and European law at the University of Cergy-Pontoise, after obtaining a license "public law", with honors, at the university of Haute-Alsace.

    I have been teaching with great pleasure for over a year, 300 hours of lessons given in support. With great pleasure, because the contact of the students is something of gratifying: to see them, to follow them for the duration, to help them to progress and to see their efforts bear fruit, is something very, very, very stimulating. In addition, the courses I give are designed not to look like courses, the goal is that the student does not feel compelled, every week, to see me - the progression is largely related to the feeling in my opinion -.

    Suddenly, I try to make my classes pleasant moments, fun, and no longer "heavy" courses where we just rehash the course: the course becomes long for the student, who feels like a goose in full force, only for the teacher, who does not find his job very rewarding ...

    In English, for example, it is very recurrent that I use a game, the "BE / WAS / BEEN" to teach students irregular verbs. The principle of the game is simple: you draw a map, which tells you the meaning of the verb in question in French and the number of shapes to find (1 to 4). I add a rule to the very principle of the game to make it more interactive: if the player (teacher or student) does not find, you have to do a hangman. In general, this atmosphere is very pleasing to students, who are very quick to play and even ask for more.

    In addition, in this subject, I generally run with a partner, because it remains very largely a subject dedicated to being used orally. The subjects are exhausted when one is two, to three it is possible to rebound, to find subjects ... to revive in other words the conversation.

    For other subjects, I do not really have a miracle method. It all depends on the student's difficulties, his motivations. It is quite difficult to make a methodology course, moreover, something quite fun ... it will unfortunately remain in an academic setting, which I do not like (we do not like either, we "teachers", spend hours explaining methodologies whose interest seems to us quite limited sometimes ...).

    Regarding my other motivations, let's be honest five minutes: I'm a student, I have my own apartment, nobody works totally for fun. I am aware that my outspokenness on this point can put off, but to hide the face on this ground seems to me to be totally irrelevant ...

    For the rest, I want to practice in higher education, so private lessons are an excellent method to get the foot in the stirrup.

    Approximately 300 hours of lessons given by the end of February.
    Welcome to all ! My name is Geoffrey, I am 21 years old and I am in first year of Master of International Law at the University of Cergy-Pontoise, after a degree in French Law obtained passable mention at the University of Mulhouse, and a bachelor's degree economic and social obtained good mention (14,297) at Lycée Notre-Dame les Oiseaux de Verneuil sur Seine. I give individual and group lessons, with a lot of fun, for almost a year already, in a wide range of subjects. In this context, I accumulate nearly a hundred hours of lessons in subjects such as English, mathematics, French but also in general support. My goal is to enable them to understand what they are doing, and thus prevent them from sinking into an automatic but unthinking application of what they are learning. It is to this end that I was able to give, also, mini-courses of support to comrades in university, especially during the periods of revision of the partial ones. In parallel, I am relatively familiar with languages, which have always been my favorite subjects and my favorite playground. Indeed, I am also a translator (English / German / Italian / French), proofreader and editor. In this context, I helped people in job search to write their CV and cover letter in French or in English. I was also able to help someone correct their book before the project was submitted to a publisher. As a teacher, I seek, as much as possible, to find methods that can go to all students. To this end, in English for example, I am always accompanied by a pair, to allow the student to have two points of view, two different explanations to enable him to better understand what is in question. In this context, I also ban any form of "academic" pedagogy, and I try to make my class a moment of exchange, interactivity and fun, the latter being in my opinion the best method to progress and to attract the attention of the student, even in the most difficult passages of his learning. This method has also borne fruit. Since the implementation of this pedagogy last January, my two students have progressed significantly in English. The first, which was thus intended to leave the USA, was able to leave serenely in the United States and cope properly even if at the beginning of the course, three weeks earlier, she did not speak English! In the same way, I am also currently taking charge of a second year student who also has difficulties in English. At present, we have swept the entire program by 6 ° -5 °, as well as a part of the 4 ° program and thus fill some of its gaps. Finally, I also take care of a student of first in French, with also results in the key. On the other hand, the pedagogy used here is more academic, high school French lending itself in my opinion less to pedagogies less "classical" and orchestrated than foreign languages. In all cases I invest a lot for my students. In English, it is thus very common that I prepare exercises, complete subjects so that the student can pound serenely from one session to another. It is also very common that I ask, if necessary, to have returns from both the student and his / her parents (if they are present), who always request and obtain a report at the end of the session, so to know where we are going. Transparency is my rule. For more information, do not hesitate to contact me.

    Private lessons in Spanish and English for high school and high school students
    Preparing this year a baccalaureate S and having a very good level in languages ​​(I have in particular followed a European class of English in second and obtained the certificate Cambridge level B2), I propose courses of support in English and Spanish. It can be as much of course of initiation for primary school pupils wishing to acquire the linguistic bases of the language (conjugation, grammar, vocabulary ...), as of courses of support for the schoolboys and even high school students wishing to fill their grammatical gaps and improve their writing skills. Likewise, I can also work with the student on the level of listening comprehension by proposing training adapted to the level of the pupil, or for the oral expression in order to help him to gain in fluency and in a fluidity in a foreign language. To best support a student, I start by targeting his / her deficiencies and expectations with him in order to propose a follow-up adapted to his needs and objectives and which will allow him to progress. I give my courses in a third place in particular in municipal media libraries (in Cergy, Osny, or other municipalities in a radius of 10-15km). Thus, I can integrate in the course given the resources available for training exercises for example.
