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.

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.

Peishan
Chinese turor for Chinese/ Mandarin (simplified and traditional )
Giving my background in Foreign Languages and Literature as my bachelor study, and Adult and Continuing Education as my master degree, I gain great professional abilities in languages and education. Since I was 18 years old, I've been offering language teaching to the students, who are from 5-70 years old. I possess a wide range of Mandarin teaching experiences that I've given one-to-one and group classes before, and even online classes to people all over the world, through which I gained all the experiences teaching people with all the different culture and also all levels from A1-C2, and even with the clients who need to prepare for Mandarin verification exams( HSK, Hànyǔ Shuǐpíng Kǎoshì). When it comes to the most forgettable teaching experience I've ever had, I think it was my former job that I gave language and culture class in a community university for 3.5 years. There, I merged language teaching, diversified culture, with European and South-East Asian cooking, and it was certainly a great fun. I am now also working in the international school in Geneva for the IB exam system, which is pretty challenging, but it broadens my abilities. With more than 10 years of working in the Mandarin as well as English tutor/ teaching field, I believe my qualifications will match your learning requirements.

Private French, Literature and FLE (French as a Foreign Language)
Teacher with a degree in French language option, I offer personalized courses according to the needs of the student. I can teach literature and French to prepare students for various exams: college certificates, baccalaureate and bts.

I also give courses on the technique of the summary requested during some exams. I teach complementary literary history courses that give students cultural references to their composition. Thanks to my FLE option, I am able to teach French as a foreign language to foreign students through various modules of conjugation, grammar, syntax and French civilization.

All levels from A1.1 to the end C2. Personally I prefer to apply the action method in my classes instead of learning grammar in an explicit way. Each learner normally has his own goals and tastes. It is up to the teacher to pursue an approach that best suits your needs. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

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.
