About Me

Learning languages can be a frustrating, and sometimes boring, endeavour. As a student of Arabic and French, I've taken my share of language classes that didn't work for me. As a teacher, my goal is to make sure that your English classes are engaging, catering to your interests as well as your skill level. I am an outgoing and experienced teacher- a former student once described my early morning politics lesson at LSE as "the only class worth getting out of bed for on a Friday!"

Education

Colby College, BA Government and Middle Eastern Studies, with Honours
London School of Economics, MSc Comparative Politics, with Merit

French to B1 level
Arabic to B2 level

Experience / Qualifications

I have five years of experience tutoring and teaching individuals and small groups at the secondary and university levels, helping non-native English speakers reach their potential in (American and British) English language courses and jobs. I have led one-to-one tutoring sessions, as well as taught on LSE courses with a high number of students for whom English is not their native language.

Feel stuck? Let's take your English to the next level
Since I believe that the learning environment is one of the keys to successful language learning, I endeavor to make students feel comfortable and content in my lessons: to ask questions if they are unsure and keep an easy but rewarding pace of learning. Depending on how my students feel they learn English most effectively, I adapt my lessons to use materials that give them the best results possible. For instance, some students find the continuity of a coursebook effective, while others prefer to be more flexible with articles and podcasts. I know from experience that every student is unique.

Lina

I am passionate about languages and when we love something we do it very well ! i am a very patient teacher , fun will be part of the course and you will be surprised by how fast you will learn I am fluent in Arabic French and English

Serdane
English courses for high school students or adults
My name is Serdane and I offer English classes to high school and adult students who would have trouble developing a work method that suits them. Extrovert and bubbly ... and above all, a lot of humor! I think language learning is primarily about developing a suitable learning method. Some learn the languages ​​intuitively by throwing themselves into the bath of conversation. Others, on the contrary, need to be exposed to the grammatical concepts in a rigorous way before starting the conversation. There are so many ways to learn that there are students ... That's why I adapt my courses to everyone's needs, and most importantly, I try to help students discover what works for them. him so that he can continue to progress independently. A few words about my background: After high school in Saint-Boniface, I did a bilingual double bachelor's degree (law) and economics at Saint-Louis University, then a master's degree in law at UCL (completed June 2018) including an Erasmus in German at the University of Vienna. This varied career allowed me to develop a solid working method. My areas of expertise: - Enhancement - catching up - Grammatical reviews - Conversation course - Method of work (organization, schedule of revisions, etc.) My price includes a complete tutoring (private lessons, the possibility to ask questions outside class hours, writing and correcting questions, etc.).
