Gave me a few tips and tricks that helpen me out
From my first class, I have a good feeling choosing Justin as my teacher, and I am confident he'll prepare me well to reach my goal and have the desired result on my TOEFL exam. The communication with him is at ease and he is very accommodating.
I had a really nice time with Justin, very nice guy, talkative, can have discussion about everything, has also different programs to make sure you can have a better vocabulary, grammar or that you can improve your speaking. I recommend him highly!
Justin is a very good teacher. Recommended.
It was a real pleasure working with Justin. Always on time, very articulated and broad knowledge/awareness of the differences between the US and Europe. If you need an insight on how things work in the US, Justin is the right person. You can basically debate with him about everything, which is good for your language skills. Highly recommended !

Nouha
Language tuition (French-Dutch-English)
Passionate about languages, I give for several years private lessons. In addition, I attend the study directed to the students of my school. Rather patient, I know how to adapt to others although I show rigor to be able to assist the student at best. I know that I have the ability to help a student to progress in their learning because my experience of private lessons showed me. Having taken evening classes in Dutch and learning the language at school, I have in my luggage several methodologies that allowed me to learn and today to teach Dutch. I am not convinced that classical school approaches the language in a boring way and without the student understanding the value of what he is learning. Method which moreover does not generally proceed to any pedagogical differentiation. I therefore find that all the interest of a particular course is to discuss with the student to know which method suits him best and thus to adapt my course. For the study of vocabulary for example, I noticed that some students prefer to hear words while others have a much more visual memory.

Grace
Private lessons - Learn English written and oral
Since French is not my mother tongue, I had to learn this language both orally and in writing, and this, in a very short time, to succeed my year in high school, in 5th grade. Following my experiences, I know what it takes to start someone to learn a language, independently. I work in a certain order. No matter what work I have to do with my student, no matter how long I have to reach my goals, I start my class always with a small grammatical exercise of minimum 10 mins. I know, from personal experiences, that a student or student who does his homework without mastering the basic grammar, has a knowledge, neither clear nor precise of the language, which results in slowing down his learning. I teach in English. This is usually the case, but if I come across a beginner, who does not understand what I say to him in English, then; either I translate the sentences that I pronounce in English, or either, I speak simply in French. Since I also learned a second language, I try to advise my students about my experiences so that they can take over and become independent.

Sely
REVIEW + SPECIAL COURSES IN MATHEMATICS ENGLISH PHYSICS ELECTRONIC CHEMISTRY (courses, exercises, exams corrected)
I strongly encourage the student because the state of mind and morale have a direct influence on school results. I am someone understandable and I always try to take each one in his own way. I always start by clarifying the course after giving an example then give an example to the student more to do a complete exercise and finally correct a review together generally it's that methodology but it can change from one case to another courses studied in class. give remarks that makes the job easier. give the tips and tricks you need to get a good rating. try to make the student fast in these calculations and these demonstrations and give the way with which he has to manage his duty.
