Lorraine is clear concise and professional….a pleasure to learn from.
I specialise in English and French conversation lessons. I can also find or design quality exercise in order to improve your vocabulary, grammar and writing skills. If there is a certain writing or speak skill you would like to focus on, I can design lesson plans that will promote learning! I speak both native English and native French. During these Covid-19 times, I am available at a lot of times during the week and the weekend for videocall/skype! This will simplify our lessons and keep the safety regulations!
So far, I have been carrying out 3 different types of lessons: (a) just conversation: Here, the student prepares 5-6 different topics for the lesson, and prepares a document with the topics and short paragraph about each topic. This way, the student can start looking at the vocabulary for the topic before the lesson. Usually, the student sends this document by email 24 hours before the planned lesson. When we start the lesson, the first few minutes are just a few questions, small talk about the last few days and what is going on at the moment. Then, we move to the topics. Each topic takes approximately 10 minutes (more or less, depending on the content). For each topic, the student first introduces the topic and what they know about it so far, then we discuss the issue, I ask some content questions or questions about your views on this subject, etc. These discussions are very helpful for conversation, sentence fluency, and vocabulary development. When the student makes a mistake in grammar, sentence, or word choice, I correct them and help them understand their mistakes. Usually, each student has a little notebook where they note down their mistakes or new words and phrases that they have learnt. During the following lesson, I may ask a few questions about the topics from the previous lesson, in order to refresh the student's memory regarding their previous mistakes and new vocabulary. (b) conversation and description: This is the same as the conversation type (a) above, but there are only 3 topics and it lasts approximately 35-40 minutes. The second half of the lesson is prepared by me. I send a document with 3-5 pictures. The student describes what they see, using position vocabulary, descriptive words, and tried to interpret what is going on in the picture. This is also very good for language development and verbal fluency. After the student finished describing as well as they can, I will describe in a little bit more depth, to make sure that all new words and phrases are mentioned. During following lesson, the first 10 minutes of the second part of the lesson (for picture description) are for a short reviewing of last lesson's pictures, refreshing memory and making sure all words are understood and well-used. (c) conversation and writing: This is the same as the conversation type (a) above, but the last 15 minutes are focused on writing skills. Usually, we look at different writing styles such as formal versus casual, a typical formal email, a typical friendly email, how to ask for help, etc. Of course, lesson types can changes as often as you want! Some of my students had the first lessons in style (c), and then we switched to one in style (a) and one in style (b). I am also very flexible in terms of what you want to do and what you prefer as a student! I hope this information helps you for you decision and if you have more questions, please do not hesitate!

[ONLINE] Preparation for DELF B1 / B2 and DALF C1 / C2. French as a foreign language course
My course is intended for non-French speaking adults of all levels (beginner, intermediate, advanced). I use an effective learning method adapted to each student. I use various educational documents, such as press articles, courses specially prepared for the student with targeted exercises, oral comprehension, written expressions ... Each daily lesson includes the progressive learning of grammar, spelling, pronunciation, conjugation and vocabulary. I also focus on oral and written expression.

Lucie
French lesson (ONLINE) - French course (ONLINE)
EN - Hi, I'm Lucie and I would be glad to help you learn French, be it from scratch or to help you improve. I love to make my students speak since I strongly believe that practice is the key to learn a language and to improve your knowledge. I always structure my lessons according to subjects based on daily life situations (how to introduce yourself, how to make an appointment, shopping / grocery, going to the doctors, professional language, etc). We'll go through the grammar, vocab, and pronunciation. If you're intermediate, we'll also do some lessons about reading comprehensions. We'll put both the grammar and vocab in practice. And hey, I can teach in English if you want! FR - Hi, I'm Lucie and I would be delighted to help you learn French, whether it's from zero or to improve your knowledge. I love getting my students to speak since I think practice is the secret to learning a language and improving knowledge. I always structure my classes according to themes based on real life (how to introduce myself, how to make an appointment, do the shopping, go to the doctor, French at work, etc.). We will see together grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. If you are intermediate, we will also do text lessons. We will put both grammar and vocabulary into practice.

Alexander
French language, literature, philosophy, history, society and culture
bonjour, My name is Alexander and I am 33 years old. I'm Dutch, but I grew up in France all my life. In addition to my Baccalaureate (Mention bien), I also studied political science in Paris (Panthéon-Assas) for a year. In short, I know where the trouble lies as a Dutch person in learning French. In addition to a grammatical preparation, I also provide a cultural background. I can help with test preparations from school to university level. French education demands more than just language, but also rhetorical technique. I'd be happy to help you with that too! Feel free to contact us, and together we will develop your ideal lesson.

Svetoslav
Help with Primary or Secondary (IB) level Science classes and Mathematics
Graduated from a European International School with scientific baccalaureate, and in my second year of medical studies, I would be happy to support, tutor and provide help to primary or secondary level students with their science, English and/or mathematics classes. My help could be especially beneficial for international students, but I can support any other students, with whom we could use English as vehicular language. I can be of even greater assistance to students trying to acquire their International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma as I have passed it as well. I have graduated with top results in my section. My scientific baccalaureate consisted of extensive studies in Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Math. Currently, as a student of medicine at Maastricht University, I continue deepening my knowledge in the area of the human biology and chemistry. Despite my limited experience with tutoring children and adolescents, I am very good at explaining complex topics and ideas and have good communication skills. I have had very positive first impressions and have been told that explaining topics to students is something that I can do with great ease. Please do not hesitate to contact me for further information.

English is the most dominant language on the planet. As an Irish native I can help You reach your full potential with the English Language. Whether it be reading or writing English to your spoken level of English, I can help you succeed. I will help you succeed with English.

Marco
Private tutoring for English, Italian and Latin. Interactive lessons and conversations, preparation for University.
Hey there! My name is Marco, I am a 21 years old university student from Venice, Italy. I love languages and culture, and I think really the best way to learn a language is to immerse yourself in it. This is why in my classes I take great care to ensure that my classes are interactive, so that the students feel engaged and do not get bored. I can help you with all your English needs, reading, speaking and listening. If you want to study at a University in English, I can help you to be prepared by teaching you how to write proper academic papers and avoid the common mistakes non-native speakers make. I also teach Italian and Latin, which I studied extensively in Italy. My teaching style is informal and interactive, as I think the best lesson should feel like a conversation rather than a lecture. I can help you with all your homework needs, and I will add a bit of cultural dimension so you can really feel invested in what you are learning. Do not hesitate to contact me for more information, I am always available and I will respond fast.

Mercure
High School tutoring and language classes and conversations with a native speaker in French, German and English
I offer language classes and conversation from a bilingual native speaker in French and German and also English (C1 certified). If you want to improve your level or need help for school work in these languages (any subject), contact me! I recently graduated from the Lycée Franco Allemand (French German high school) in Saarbrücken, Germany but grew up in a french-speaking household, which allowed me to have a natural, bilingual uprising and excellent knowledge in both these languages. Later on in high school I also improved my English level by studying for 6 months at the Parklands Languages High School in Chorley, Lancastershire. Since I am currently enrolled at the Maastricht Science Program at the University of Maastricht and had been following rigorous scientific education during my high school (Biology and Chemistry specialisation), I can offer tutoring in any classes and especially in the Sciences in English, French or German.

Samantha
English Tutor for Students, Adults and Professionals
English is one of the most popular languages in the world. In the modern age of globalism, it has been regarded as the most used language in terms of communication, let that be via emails, telephone calls, or letters. My goal with this class is to make you comfortable in all forms of communication with this language, so you can communicate with colleagues, friends, or potential new friends in a social setting. The main objective of this class is to completely remove the language barrier psychologically, so you can also think in English rather than just writing, listening, and expressing it. I look forward to helping new students and contribute to their aspiration to learn a Language.

Gonzalo
Spanish and English conversation for all skill groups
Many people, over time, lose the ability to converse in a second language after being unable to practice for a long time. This also makes them embarassed to take that first step to talk to people who know the language. By having a space where people can talk with no judgement and encouraging their participation, my lessons allow students to gain confidence and improve their skills in a comfortable environment, discussing topics that they find interesting.
