About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Hello everyone :)

My name is Nicolas. I was born in Geneva and grew up there until I was 25. I went to college at Emilie-Gourd where I obtained my maturity (equivalent to Bach in France). After that I took a year off during which I went to Vancouver to improve my English.

I then did a Bachelor in Geography and Environment at the University of Geneva. For my 3rd year I did an exchange in São Paulo, where I learned Portuguese.

Once I finished my Bachelor, I decided to travel around the world, with no return date. I left in February 2018 for South East Asia and spent 7 months there. In Vietnam I volunteered as an English teacher. It was then that I discovered my passion for teaching! So I followed an online training to obtain the TEFL certificate (Teaching English as a Foreign Language).

In the meantime, I returned to Brazil where I spent 7 months working there as a French and English teacher.

Back in Geneva in April 2019 I gave French lessons to more than twenty students in private, and I also worked as a substitute geography teacher in colleges.

I am now in Lausanne to do a Masters in geography at the University of Lausanne.

I offer much more than just a language course but a real exchange of culture and life experiences.

I am a very social person, calm, patient and communicative. I like challenges and new experiences.

My hobbies are skiing, kitesurfing, music, meditation and of course travel :)

French private lessons by university graduate in Letters
French private lessons are for students wishing: - consolidate their bases in grammar, spelling - improve their language skills (allophone students) - improve their speaking skills (conversation classes) -profect the written expression - ECR exams - prepare for the written examinations at the end of the studies (maturity, certificate of completion) - help with the writing of works of maturity (or other works of end of studies), of dissertation - work on argumentative texts - acquire a method to analyze literary texts - fill gaps - improve their spelling - prepare for oral exams (maturity, compulsory leaving certificates) - learn how to perform bibliographic research For help with writing: The objective is above all to acquire effective tools. The pupil will thus be able to learn to structure his ideas, to argue in a coherent (and convincing) way and to enrich his vocabulary. For the corrections of end of studies work: so that the meeting with the student is at the most profitable, I ask him to send me his writings before the meeting. Apart from my presence with the student, any course involves a preparation time before and after the lesson, including the work that I correct. My goal is to design an individualized course, so I take the time to write detailed comments on corrected work or tips to ensure maximum success for everyone. For example, an editorial correction can easily be the subject of a detailed commentary of 4 typewritten pages. For adults (FLE): In order to optimally prepare the first ones, I take the initiative to inform myself in advance of their objectives / expectations. Whether to practice speaking in everyday life, the professional world or to practice oral presentations, I prepare either PPT or technical sheets in advance that I send by mail ( after booking on the website). The other alternative is to make a PV of the course that I send (or that I print). Giving importance to keeping a written record on the one hand to better memorize the topics covered, on the other hand to better assimilate the spelling. Of a general nature, a concrete situation that responds to the learner's needs is the starting point. From this situation, I address the essential grammatical points.

De technologie om je Frans te verbeteren. Lessen met een gecertificeerde native docent.
TECHNOLOGIEËN VOOR HET LEREN. Hallo, Mijn naam is Laurie en ik ben een onafhankelijke FLE-leraar, afgestudeerd in het Frans en Romaanse talen en literatuur sinds 2012. Ik heb vijf jaar ervaring onder mijn riem (in het buitenland en in België). Ik heb LangMethod gemaakt, een leermethode voor online cursussen. De cursus omvat: -Het materiaal (artikelen, video's, oefeningen van afbeeldingen en teksten, grammaticale theorie, links naar de oefeningen ...). Ik gebruik Google Doc, dus het beste is om een ​​Gmail-adres te hebben om er toegang toe te hebben. -De correctie van oefeningen buiten de les (de schriftelijke uitdrukkingen worden gecorrigeerd buiten de les, of met de student, volgens zijn behoeften). -Toegang tot een applicatie (gratis) om woordenschat op uw smartphone te bestuderen. -Een woordenschatblad - uitspraak - grammatica / vervoeging, verzonden na elke cursus. -Indien nodig, een vocabulaireopname (voor beginners). -De realisatie van online oefeningen en tests uit de verzonden vocabulairebladen. -Motivatie, gelach, goed humeur :-) Mijn methode: - Het is gebaseerd op spreken. -Voor grammatica gebruik ik een vraag / antwoord-methode (geleerd tijdens de training in het CERAN-centrum). -We werken aan de uitspraak met de verbotonale methode (oefeningen om je stem te zetten, voor ritme, enz.). Ik zou je misschien zelfs laten zingen! :-) -Alles gaat door het gesproken woord voordat het geschreven woord wordt doorlopen, maar ik pas me duidelijk aan aan de behoeften van de studenten. -De cursus is een beetje anders voor kinderen en adolescenten: ik gebruik interactieve games en kaarten via de webcam. Tot binnenkort! Laurie NB: Mogelijkheid om een ​​factuur te maken voor particulieren of bedrijven.

Private lessons in natural / human language and science
The learning of the English and German language is done in a proactive and stimulating way, learning via the active way with simulation and exercise in order to obtain optimal results after a more or less short period of learning, through the grammar and vocabulary in order to learn the real language used by the English and German populations. Regarding chemistry lessons, learning through visualization with contextual settings and explanations accompanied by examples is necessary to fully understand. Teach the student to get into the habit of doing his exercises and to understand the statements so that he is able to do them alone.

ENGLISH LESSONS, all levels (beginner to university), 5 years teaching experience
I am a qualified teacher from England, I have a BA and MA in Linguistics (English). I am currently making research on the best methods for teaching a second language (such as English) to adults and children. I have been teaching children and adults for 5 years, from beginner to university level. The best way to improve in a new language is to be taught by a qualified English speaker. :-) I adapt my lessons to the level and needs of the student. We can work on grammar, reading, speaking and listening. I usually use the news in English to encourage the student to express themselves, correct pronunciation while reading and it is an excellent way for the student to acquire new expressions/vocabulary. I also give exercises based on grammar and make sure to apply what we have learned in real life context. If you wish, we can also work on specific topics such as business. I am also qualified for the IELTS/TOEFL, A-LEVELS or the correction of written work. I can deliver the lessons online if required. Don't hesitate to contact me for further information. I'm looking forward to meeting you. :-)
