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.

Serdane
English courses for high school students or adults
NB: I am on vacation (without internet access) until September 9th included. 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 that language learning is primarily about developing an adapted learning method. Some learn 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 manner 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 above all, I try to help students discover what works for him so that he can continue to progress independently. A few words about my background: After high school in Saint-Boniface, I did a double bilingual 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 - Grammar reviews - Conversation course - Work method (organization, schedule of revisions, etc.) My rate includes full tuition (private lessons, the ability to ask questions outside of class time, writing and correcting questions, etc.).
