French: written/oral expression, grammar, conversation

Do you want to start learning French but have never learnt it before? Or maybe you want to perfect your understanding of French grammar, or your capacity to express yourself clearly, spontaneously and with confidence in French? Or work on pronunciation, perhaps improve your accent and learn more about French culture?
I can help you with all of these, and not only because I was born and raised in France: after getting my Master's Degree in Lingustics and Anthropology from the School for Advanced Research in Paris - at the time I was also teaching private classes of French and English to high school and university students - I moved to the UK and studied theatre at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. There I worked on the skills any speaker needs to communicate clearly and convincingly: diction, voice projection, etc.
These two approaches - linguistics, and theatre work - give me a strong foundation from which to help any student learn French. So jump on: we'll build a learning program tailored to your needs and make sure that the lessons are both dense and fun.

About Me

Hi,
I have traveled extensively through Western Europe and the United States - from Roumania to California, from the polar regions of Sweden to Italy - where I was able to experience first-hand the importance of language in our lives.
Back home in France, I got my Master's Degree in linguistic anthropology from the School for Advanced Research in Paris (2020) and then moved to the UK where I studied theatre and performance at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. To me, languages are a source of wonder and I hope to share my passion with my students. Whether they have to read or write essays, comment on poetry or learn to speak with confidence, I love watching them becoming more and more assured and independent.

Education

Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Introduction To Actor Training, Glasgow, 2021.
School for Advanced Research in Social Sciences, Master's Degree, Anthropology, Paris, 2020.

Kevin
Polyglot specialist with 9 years of experience. German in speed mode. Level A1 to C2. No school teaching.
I offer you a German course that is not like the others. There are two types of courses. Here is an analogy to illustrate their respective approaches: If you travel back and forth by train every day and don't have time to wait long at the platform, imagine that you only have two options: 1) Memorise the timetable. 2) Realise that the train comes every ten minutes and that a train arrives for example at 7:00 a.m. In school pedagogy, in textbooks and in normal lessons, the first approach is used - in the course I am offering you, it is the second approach because it is more economical and faster. My offer is aimed at both pupils and adults who want to learn the German language without time-consuming detours through the madness of fruitless school methods. Learning is easy, but unlearning things that have become bad habits is extremely difficult. This makes it all the more important to learn the right reflexes as early as possible. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced learner, with my customised lessons you will greatly accelerate the learning process while having a positive attitude. I offer German lessons for individuals or groups (2 to 5 people). The methods are based on cognitive science and historical linguistics in particular. My modular programme can be adapted on a case-by-case basis. The converging point of these modules is your independence in spontaneous conversations in real life. What will not be covered in the course: learning lists of verbs; learning lists of nouns with articles; learning words with their translations; flashcards; doing school exercises; following the syllabus of a booklet; imposing the English grammar on the German language. What is particularly important to me: to motivate my student and to give him a learning rhythm; to encourage his creativity; to befriend him with the language; the letters and their sounds; to strengthen the memory by training the phonological loop; to teach blueprints instead of memorising sentences; to explain how the language works in order to make my student independent as quickly as possible; to eliminate common preconceptions, such as that 'der' would mean masculine and 'die' feminine, that the accusative would be a direct complement and the dative an indirect complement, that verbs would be irregular, that declension would be random and therefore would have to be learnt with each verb...; to put practice at the centre and only deal with grammar where necessary. A first lesson will give you a sound idea of my pedagogy.

✅ Learn Sanskrit & powerful Mantras ૐ!- Basic to Advance ✅ Let's chant Mantras 🕉
ॐ नमः शिवाय! Hello, Namaste, नमस्ते , My name is Ritu, and I'm from New Delhi, the capital city of India. 🙏🏼 As you may or may not know! 🙏🏼 ⭐ Sanskrit is the oldest, purest and most systematic language in the world. ⭐NASA has described Sanskrit as the best language for computers. NASA has been researching on 60,000 Sanskrit manuscripts written on palm leaves, to decipher the ancient technologies from the manuscripts. ⭐A mantra is a word, or a phrase chanted repeatedly to invoke spiritual qualities. The Sanskrit root word ‘manas’ translates as mind, and ‘tra’ means instrument or tool. I would describe it as result-driven. My teaching style can best be described as interactive, supportive, and transparent. Me as a Teacher I believe in 100% results, and my method of teaching is easy enough to understand. I love to answer questions. It prioritises your requirements. If you wish to know more, meet me here. I hope to see you soon. 😎 My Teaching Material PDF File PPT Audio File Video File

French lessons with a native speaker For every level
As a native French speaker living in such a cosmopolitan and diverse city as London, I believe that a lot of people would like to learn French. The first meeting we would evaluate your level with a simple conversation to get to know each other and see if we’re compatible as a student/teacher, and start planning a timeline for your objectives. Then I will adapt the class depending on your level, your expectations. It could be either conversations to practice speaking, more school-oriented classes, more work-oriented ones...

Ilia
Russian Language A1 - C2 / Русский язык и литература
Hi All, thank you for checking out my course. This class is open to students of all levels. Whether you are only starting to learn the wild-looking letters of the Cyrillic alphabet, or whether you are looking to practise your written and spoken Russian, I would be delighted to accompany you at any stage of your Russian-learning journey. For more advanced students, I would be happy to help you get to know one of the most defining aspects of the Russian language, namely its novels and poetry, which would be a great way to learn about the 'mysterious' Russian soul. I believe that studying in three different countries have allowed me to try out and assess various approaches to education in general and teaching languages in particular - from the rigourous Russian system based on ensuring that the students will obtain exceptional spelling, grammar, syntax and punctuation skills, to the more relaxed yet more critical and analytical Western approach, focused on problem-solving and independent work. You will get the benefit of a vast bank of techniques, methods and learning materials that I have developed and accumulated over the past year will be used in class to pique and maintain your interest. And since I was once a language student too, I would be able to share my personal tips and tricks with you to help you reach whatever goal you have set for yourself - be it being able to wow your friends and family by reciting a poem in the language of Dostoyevski, or impressing your future collegues with the thorough knowledge of Russian current affairs in their mother tongue!

Give you confidence to speak , read and write Farsi-Persian in easy way
My lessons are based on standard conversational (informal) Persian spoken by mainly the middle-class educated people in Iran. I teach in three beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels: The beginner level is mostly focused on basic grammar and vocabularies and you will learn to make simple sentences and handle basic conversations. In the intermediate and advanced levels you will gradually learn more vocabularies, will make more sophisticated sentences and will be more confident in communication in Farsi. In the advance level you will have lessons on particular subjects such as cooking, weather, houses, cities etc and thus you will learn related vocabularies and slang. All the lessons are designed and written by me and all are supported by plenty of examples from everyday life. In my class, not only yоu will leаrn Persiаn but yоu will also knоw аbоut аmаzing Irаniаn culture,music, pоetry. You will never get bored during the lessons as I cаn аlsо teаch yоu sоme eаsy sоngs in Persiаn, we will talk about delicious Iranian food ( I am going to give you some recipes in Farsi as a part of lessons) and will even listen to some Persian songs!! We are practicing four skills together, Listening, Writing , Reading and Speaking. Also, you have homework at the end of each class.

Sarah
French and English lessons for all levels + preparation for the GCSE
As a recent graduate from a Master degree in teaching English, with 5 years of experience tutoring French children and students privately. During my two years of master, I taught English to secondary school students. The theory and the practise, allowed me to develop my teaching skills and through tutoring I have learned to tailor my teaching methods to the student’s needs. Moreover, throughout my years of tutoring, I could gave back the confidence that students were lacking in their education, which led to one of my students to obtain her “brevet” equivalent of the English GSCE with a high grade. The success was hinged through the learning material that I created. Indeed, I produced my own lesson plans and I provided weekly progress homework.

Mariangela
Italian, French for Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced Students
I teach Italian and French to Primary and Secondary school aged students. I also teach foreign languages to adults and Preschool children. The beginners will start with easy exercises and short dialogues to learn the language. Intermediate and Advanced students will do grammar exercises to improve their language. I would like to speak Italian and French to the students right away. We will write dialogues and talk about interesting topics all together. I usually use the Internet as well. My goal is to keep students challenged yet interested in my lesson.

Nida
French born and raised Tutor able to assist students from the age of 4 to 18
I was born and raised in France and moved to England at the age of 16, which means I completed my Brevet des Colleges in France including 1 year of Lycée. I have previous experience teaching students as I volunteered in a primary school back in 2013. I am able to help students improve their French, enabling them to become more confident in their speech as well assist them in any homework or proofreading of work. I am very flexible in terms of how the lesson will go, as I believe there is no one specific way of learning as everyone has different abilities and learning capacities.

Isabelle

I would be happy to answer to any questions you may have, do not hesitate to contact me!

Learn French with fun ! (kids, teens & adults - all levels accepted)
Hello :) You have difficulties to understand and/or speak French? You need to prepare for a DELF/DALF exam? You need to progress quickly? Good news ! I can help you :) My name is Nina & I've been teaching French for 8 years. I have a master's degree in teaching & a certification to correct and examine DELF/DALF exams with Alliance française. Most of my classes focus on speaking because it is often the most difficult skill to master and requires the most practice. However, I adapt each class according to your level, goals and interests so we can also focus on specific needs (DELF/DALF preparation, business French...) I love to teach through culture & authentic documents (songs, newspaper articles, movie clips...) because it makes the lessons more lively, interesting & FUN! I take notes during the lesson in order to offer you a corrective assessment and exercises to remedy your mistakes. Learning a language requires regularity so I would also give you homework & recommend you websites, movies, series, shows so that you can continue to learn outside the classroom ;) See you soon :)
