A-level teacher, also a PhD, teaching English and French for School, Work or Private!

Translated by Google. Click to view original.
I am a first degree French teacher and have lived and worked in England for 11 years. I have a lot of experience teaching young people in secondary education as well as adults.

My goal is to help you on your way and to support you with good explanation, patience and humor. When you are in school you have your own book. We treat that subject matter during the tutoring. I also have a lot of extra practice material to practice grammar or texts, for example.

About Me

Translated by Google. Click to view original.
I am a calm and friendly teacher who would like to get the best out of her students! Working well in a pleasant atmosphere is my motto. If you are in secondary education, we follow your textbook and discuss what you have to learn from it and what you find difficult. I have a lot of extra teaching material to explain certain topics, such as grammar or reading texts, even better.

For adult education, I look at what the question is and base the course to be followed on that. We choose a suitable textbook and supplement it with extra teaching material and audio / video fragments.

You can expect me to commit myself to you. I also expect commitment and being on time from you. This is how we achieve a great result together!

Good and patient teacher. Sometimes the sound during online lessons is less good. Sometimes she is difficult to understand.

Kevin
Non-academic Latin lessons. Multilingual teacher with 9 years of experience. Pronunciation, historical linguistics, conceptual semantics.
Contrary to popular belief, learning Latin is not like learning the phone book by heart. I offer you Latin lessons that are unlike any other. There are two types of courses. Here is an analogy to illustrate their respective approaches: If you take the train back and forth every day and don't have time to wait long at the platform, imagine that you only have two options: 1) Learn the schedules by heart. 2) Note that the train arrives every ten minutes and that a train arrives for example at 7:00 a.m. In school pedagogy, in study notebooks and in ordinary courses, it is the first approach which is adopted - in the courses that I offer you, it is the second because it is more economical and faster. My offer is aimed at both students and adults who want to learn the Latin language or deepen their knowledge without time-consuming detours through the insanities of school methods which do not produce results. Learning is easy but unlearning what has become a bad habit is extremely difficult. All the more important it is to learn the right reflexes as early as possible. With my tailor-made teaching you will accelerate your learning in a positive state of mind. I offer individual or group Latin lessons (2 to 5 people). The methods are based on cognitive sciences and in particular historical linguistics. What will not be the subject of the course: learn lists of verbs; learn lists of nouns with their gender; learn words with their translations; memory card game; doing school exercises; follow the program in a notebook; impose French grammar on the Latin language. What matters to me in particular: motivate my student and give him a learning rhythm; encourage creativity; make friends with language; letters and their sounds strengthen your memory by working on the phonological loop; teach construction plans instead of having people learn sentences by heart; explain how the language works to make my student independent as quickly as possible; breaking preconceived ideas such as the gammatical gender would have a link with the biological gender, the accusative would be a direct complement and the dative an indirect complement, the verbs would be irregular, the declension would be random and therefore to be learned with each verb... ; place practice at the center and articulate grammar around practice. In the context of a first course, you can get a well-founded idea of my pedagogy. I look forward to meeting you.

Online or at-home English teacher beginner to intermediate level
Hello! I am 23 years old, I have a law degree and I am entering the MEEF Master's degree in English in September in order to become an English teacher. After my baccalaureate, I went to be an au pair in England in order to become bilingual. I play the piano and I sing. I really like reading and going to the cinema. I am also very manual: I know how to sew, knit and I make my own jewelry. I strive to use fun and interactive learning methods to make the course more enjoyable. I hope to see you soon among my students to pass on my passion for English to you ;)
