    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
    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.).

    French and English tuition - homework help, tutoring, patent preparation, bachelor's degree for students
    My methodology is based on identifying the student's deficiencies in the first place. It is essential to assess the level of the student beforehand. Depending on this, adaptations will be implemented. For students with significant deficiencies, this should be addressed first. But not only occasionally because it is usually a "cluster" of various gaps. The study will be done according to 3 axes: the writing, the reading and the oral expression. For more comfortable students, the teaching method will be freer but will also be developed according to the 3 axes mentioned above.
