British and American Culture and Literature, Minority Literatures

Literature in English language is a very broad term. The biggest number of popular English language texts comes from the USA and the UK, however, there are many other places where English is spoken as a native language and interesting texts are produced.
You can learn with me the following subjects:
1. American literature (including native American literature).
2. British literature (including Welsh and Scottish literature).
3. Selected areas of literature in English from Canada, Australia, India and South Africa.

About Me

I am an adventurer and a bookworm so my interest in foreign languages came naturally. I lead an active life as a sailor and climber but I also enjoy spending time at home with books, films and music. My interest in psychology is satisfied in my job as all students are different and demand individual care. All in all, teaching is a perfect combination of working, learning and having fun because it opens up so many opportunities both for teacher and student.

Education

I am currently a PhD student and I specialize in linguistics. I hold B.A. in Business English and M.A. in British and American Culture and Literature as well as a certificate of completion of an intensive translation course.

Experience / Qualifications

I worked at University of Silesia for 4 years teaching students, attending conferences and organizing events. I also held a position of an English Language Coach and Translator for 8 years in several companies.

Paul is a professional with a high standaards and a deep understanding for the english language. He makes sure that the lessons are tailored to your needs and that you make progress. He has a comforting way of teaching, since practicing a foreign language can be a bit scary.
Linguistics is fun and useful for students as well as professionals, schoolchildren and anyone who is interested in languages. Linguistics can be a real eye-opener and a hobby for life. The branches of linguistics I teach include: 1. Translation theory. 2. Pragmatics. 3. Dialectology. 4. Morphology. 5. Phonetics. 6. Syntactics/grammar. 7. Psycholinguistics. 8. Historical linguistics. 9. Geographical linguistics. 10. Sociolinguistics.
I specialize in tutoring English for university students and staff working in various industries. I use numerous methods and didactic materials depending on particular students and their goals. You can choose if you would like to speak American or British English.
Writing is an expression of our thoughts and emotions as well as a representation of our self. The texts we create very often shape our future and can lead to good grades at school or university, profitable business relations or even awards and fame for a successful story or poem. I provide help at all stages of the writing process: 1. Preparation. 2. Drafting. 3. Writing. 4. Revising. 5. Proofreading.

Elise
French private lessons by university graduate in Letters
French private lessons are for students wishing: - consolidate their bases in grammar, othograph - 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 goal is above all to acquire effective tools. Students will learn how to structure their ideas, argue in a coherent (and convincing) way and enrich their 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.

Vincent
French lessons given by a motivated and motivating teacher!
Teacher for more than five years in Geneva, I am passionate about my work and, in general, by the French language. I can help you in language as in literature; we will find together the means for you to progress. My goal is to make sense of knowledge and show that you can study French while having fun! I offer a weekly follow-up via an online platform, so you can measure your progress and practice outside the lessons. I like to propose several ways of learning, from the most basic (to do exercises, to copy sentences) to the most modern ones (to play small games, to watch videos ...). It all depends on the student and his expectations. No method is imposed; the important thing is that you feel good and that you can become familiar with the tools adapted to your profile. It is entirely possible for me to assist in the drafting / correction of work, to finish; I will not do them for you of course, but can provide you with the support and follow-up necessary to achieve them. See you soon !

Claudia
Learn Italian with a real Italian (also for beginners)
I am an Italian native speaker with a background in design. Usually, I tend to use a non-academic approach, by focusing on the student's interests and make him/her applying the language to their everyday life, instead of simply learning the grammar rules by heart. In my opinion, learning a new language should be fun and easy, nothing too stressful. What you will get from is a new positive and funny way to learn a foreign language such as Italian or English.
