Experience / Qualifications

Five years work as English teacher with the British Council
Three years experience of private tuition online and in person
Intended target age: 15-80 Prerequisites: zero Intensity: high for martial, lower for self defense Props required: none, just your sports attire I am an amateur MMA fighter who has trained in Muay Thai, Lethwei and Jiu-Jitsu for five years in Thailand, Myanmar, England and Bali. I have trained extensively in striking, grappling, self-defence, fitness and yoga, developing a holistic set of martial arts skills. I am also interested in mental and physical fitness, yoga, meditation and self improvement. This class is perfect for anyone who is either interested in learning more about these practical and accessible martial arts. Get incredibly fit, learn useful self-defence skills, and develop physical and mental discipline. Through a combination of aerobic exercises, technical instruction, practice and sparring (if you desire), we can create a program that is right for you. I am also a CELTA qualified teacher with six years of experience, meaning I am skilled at teaching, instruction, and being friendly and approachable - whether your attitude is "tough guy" or "total novice", we can make it work together. I offer group and individual classes at home or in the parks of Lausanne and nearby towns. Let's work together to make this work for you. These classes are less suitable for advanced or masters students - I am an amateur fighter and not at the elite level, not do I claim to be. My skills lie in clear instruction, solid fundamentals and a positive attitude.

French private lessons by university graduate in Letters
French private lessons are for students wishing: - consolidate their bases in grammar, spelling - improve their language skills (allophone students) - improve their speaking skills (conversation classes) -profect the written expression - ECR exams - prepare for the written examinations at the end of the studies (maturity, certificate of completion) - help with the writing of works of maturity (or other works of end of studies), of dissertation - work on argumentative texts - acquire a method to analyze literary texts - fill gaps - improve their spelling - prepare for oral exams (maturity, compulsory leaving certificates) - learn how to perform bibliographic research For help with writing: The objective is above all to acquire effective tools. The pupil will thus be able to learn to structure his ideas, to argue in a coherent (and convincing) way and to enrich his vocabulary. For the corrections of end of studies work: so that the meeting with the student is at the most profitable, I ask him to send me his writings before the meeting. Apart from my presence with the student, any course involves a preparation time before and after the lesson, including the work that I correct. My goal is to design an individualized course, so I take the time to write detailed comments on corrected work or tips to ensure maximum success for everyone. For example, an editorial correction can easily be the subject of a detailed commentary of 4 typewritten pages. For adults (FLE): In order to optimally prepare the first ones, I take the initiative to inform myself in advance of their objectives / expectations. Whether to practice speaking in everyday life, the professional world or to practice oral presentations, I prepare either PPT or technical sheets in advance that I send by mail ( after booking on the website). The other alternative is to make a PV of the course that I send (or that I print). Giving importance to keeping a written record on the one hand to better memorize the topics covered, on the other hand to better assimilate the spelling. Of a general nature, a concrete situation that responds to the learner's needs is the starting point. From this situation, I address the essential grammatical points.

English tutoring and tutoring given by a bilingual French speaker
Work on course materials already in your possession, books, textbooks, DVDs, or songs, or the Internet, and progress, in a relaxed and cool atmosphere, whether spoken, listening, or in writing, on topics that you are passionate about or for which you have exams or tests. I personally studied management in English, then worked in international environments for many years. This language is part of my everyday life.

Natacha
Private lessons in languages and methodology of work
Passionate about languages, I am convinced that learning a foreign language, or even working more thoroughly in one's mother tongue, is a great wealth in terms of openness and self-awareness. It is also a very valuable tool for learning how to organize your thoughts and structure your ideas; what we all need in our daily lives. Holder of a Master in Sociology of Communication and Media and Journalism (University of Friborg) and a Master of Arts (University of Lausanne), I offer private courses entirely based on the needs and expectations of the person. The goal is that the use and learning of the language brings something concrete, especially in terms of work methodology. I teach French (school or foreign language) and English at all levels and to people of all ages.

Sabrina

Hello :) Currently studying at the Beaulieu gymnasium and graduated with an ECG health option. I would like to give tutoring courses in French, English and math (also German and science if necessary) for students from 7 to 9th harmos.

Ksenia
English
My goal is to teach the whole person, which means, the cognitive, affective, and behavioral dimensions of the human being. The film “The Wizard of Oz” is a wonderful allegory for what I want my students to learn. An effective teacher is like the wizard who must help each individual appreciate the potential that resides within all of us – the potential to make the best use of our mids, hearts and those behaviors that can make the world a better place.

Discover languages (English / French / Italian courses)
Hello everyone ! I am 29 years old and I would be happy to offer my support to children / young adults in language learning, my passion since always. Italian-French, I spent several years abroad during my studies to strengthen the knowledge of foreign languages. Yes, for me, learning a language is also a way to travel, to study the life of a Country and to look at the world with different eyes. "The soul of a Country and its people lives in its language." (JW Goethe) I like to share my passion by giving children the opportunity to learn the foreign language from the discovery of the country's culture through games, videos, songs, interactive books, what else? We will start a journey together! And for those who have to study or revise literature, grammar, lexicon or improve oral communication I will also be happy to provide my support !! Contact me and we will discover together what is hidden behind a language. Diploma: Bachelor's Degree in Languages and Communication (specialization in English and German) City: Lausanne A presto Alexa

English course adapted to the student's desires
Student in English at the University of Geneva. I have many experiences in foreign and English speaking countries and a BA2 degree in English. I propose a teaching in 5 parts. Part learning grammar, part oral comprehension (using series or choice films), another written understanding (reading articles or books of choice), part written expression (on a subject that interests the student) and a final part oral expression (free discussion). I am also ready to do tutoring in this area (homework, review for test) cordially

Laura
Italian :-) language & culture LIVING. Polyglot.
Italy has a lot of charm because it has a varied culture: its language, the Renaissance, the music of Opera, but also Laura Pausini or Bolognese sauce :-) Italian, graduated in Languages and Literatures (in this case I speak fluently French, English, German), I have professional experience in teaching foreign languages. My strong points: - being multilingual, I know all the good tips to get to really master a language (if I could do it you can too!) - I'm serious but I also have humor. During my lessons we never get bored - I am open to various solutions: I can teach you another language also at the same time (verbs in Italian and English at the same time? Compare their uses? No problem!) or even cook with you: Bolognese sauce ? Why not? See you soon !
