Amélie
Private lessons in History-Geo, SES and English for the Baccalaureate ES
Student at the London School of Economics (LSE) in History, I earned my Baccalaureate ES honors in 2016. I have always loved exchanging and transmitting what I learned. My mother is a teacher of German, I am immersed in the world of education since always. I started giving private lessons when I was in high school, and I continue today. I help academically and psychologically ES students in History-Geography, SES and English. I explain the course in detail (if necessary), and we work on the methodology for each event, the organization and the planning of the work to be done. For example, I started working with two students in high difficulty in April (overall average around 7-8 out of 20), and they just got their baccalaureate, including one with honors. I also worked with another student the year before, who earned the distinction Very Good (with 19/20 in SES).

Jack
Philosophy, History, Literature, Theology/ Religious Studies, Ukulele,
MA student with too much information in his head who loves breaking it down into digestible chunks. My class is for the people who 'don't get it' and want it explained simply and accessibly. My classes give students their own understanding of the content with which to confidently approach their exams. I received a 1st in Philosophy and Theology at bachelors level from the University of Nottingham. I am currently studying philosophy at King's College London. Able to run classes on these topics in each field: Philosophy: Philosophy of Religion, Ethics, Political Philosophy, Metaphysics, Philosophy of Mind. History: Tudor England, Elizabethan England, Reformation Europe. Theology/Religious studies: Islam, Christianity, Buddhism. Literature: WW1 literature, Existentialist Literature, Othello. Great Gatsby, A View from the Bridge, Pride and Prejudice. Have been playing the Ukulele for 8 years and so can help students gain competency in the instrument - have access to a lot of material. Also have been learning Arabic for 4 years and can help beginners get set up.

Je suis une étudiante eI am a French student at HEC Paris (a French Business School) and I am currently doing an internship in London over the summer. I am willing to give private and tailored lessons in Maths, French and English, depending on your needs. I believe we can have a good time learning a great deal! Two years of intensive "preparatory school" (a French equivalent of a cram school) in maths, languages, philosophy, geopolitics have given me a solid background in those subjects as well as efficient work methods.
