English Lessons with an Australian, Native English

Hello! My name is Kate and I am an Australian who is has been living in France since 2019. I am fluent in French and English is obviously my native language.

My educational background: I hold a Masters of Art Therapy from The University of Paris with a major in music therapy, a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) with majors in Music and Psychology, and a Diploma of Languages with a major in French from The University of Queensland, Australia.

As a native English speaker my goal is to instill confidence in my students (of all ages) of their ability to speak, use, and understand English. I use a variety of interactive methods including songs, actions, rhymes, books, and music. I am firm believer in 'trying' and as such I will encourage my students to use their English, regardless of how many faults they may make. It is only from making errors, that we can improve! Additionally, I am happy to work on assignments, test preparation, or any other English homework which may need completing. I can provide homework, or extension tasks as required.

My lessons are largely immersion based, and as such I will avoid the use of French, unless an explanation is needed for clarity. I am happy to adapt to the needs of my students.

I have been teaching English in France since 2019. Prior to arriving in France, I tutored for over two years in Australia, aiding students from ages 8 to 17 with a variety of subjects including English, maths, science, music, and french. I have extensive experience with children: I have been a scout leader since 2020 in Marseille, and have been involved with Girl Guides Australia since I was 7 years old, eventually leading a group of 10-17 year olds for over 4 years before arriving to France.

I am located near Metro Prado, but can travel throughout Marseille. Depending on distance, travel costs may be in addition to class fees.

I have a valid working with children background check in Australia, and hold first aid qualifications in France (PSC1).

I am declared as an EI and have a SIRET Number, as well as insurance for my activity.

Hello! My name is Kate and I am an Australian who is has been living in France since 2019. I am fluent in French and English is obviously my native language. My educational background: I hold a Masters of Art Therapy from The University of Paris with a major in music therapy, a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) with majors in Music and Psychology, and a Diploma of Languages with a major in French from The University of Queensland, Australia. I am offering guided relaxation classes (in French or English). This is based on the Jacobson method. The aim of these classes is to release stress, reduce physical and mental tensions, and come away feeling relaxed, refreshed and more calm. I guide you through a series of light muscular contractions and breathwork. The session can be down lying down, or seated - whichever is most comfortable. Each session lasts from 30mins to an hour. It includes a time to verbalise at the end of the session. Sessions can be held individually, or in a group - please precise in booking if there are additional people (an extra fee may apply). I am a declared EI and a have a valid SIRET number as well as professional insurance for my activity.

Tarek
Language courses (German & English) or training in Political Science/IR with Master's graduate of Sciences Po Paris
A Marseille-based graduate of International Security from Sciences Po Paris (2022) with living experience across Europe (Germany, France, Spain), the Middle East (Egypt, Lebanon), and the United States, I offer private tutoring in German and English or training in Political Science/International Relations. From beginners (A1) to advanced users (C2), I boast experience in working with all age groups from primary school students to adults aiming to take the next step in their language proficiency. My teaching methods are exclusively contingent on the student's needs/requirements, accounting for previous knowledge, the student's preferences, and feasibility of the project. As such, the first lesson seeks to provide me with an idea of the student's level while also ensuring that the synergy between teacher and pupil makes for a fruitful partnership. With regards to training in Political Science/International Relations, I intend to draw on the knowledge and insights that I was able to acquire over 5 years of study in the respective fields at prestigious universities (Leiden University, Sciences Po Paris). Here, I am also able to tailor classes to the student's expectations.

Private lessons in English and Spanish for all levels.
You will learn Spanish and / or English in a dynamic way with exercises that promote the learning of the language to use it in everyday life as well as in a more formal or even specific setting. My goal is that you can use the language to communicate fluently and enjoy it. To do this, I use non-formal education methods, these are activities that make it possible to implement the knowledge already acquired of the language and to improve and deepen its level, but also to formal education by explaining grammar or dispelling doubts in order to teach them to express themselves well in writing and orally in formal or informal situations. In summary, the student will learn grammar and pronunciation through conversations and games. In addition, the courses will be adapted to the needs and requirements of the student. I offer online courses with multiple digital tools or face-to-face at the student's home if possible. Do not hesitate to contact me, I would be happy to answer you. Maria

Mathilde
English lessons with a trilingual English / Spanish / French teacher
The method that we will follow for the lessons will depend on the needs of the student that we will define during our first interview. We can proceed either by oral interviews with the deepening of grammar, vocabulary and conjugation or by written exercises of comprehension of texts and deepening of grammar, vocabulary and conjugation in writing by the dictation and reading of texts. For those who wish to learn with these two methods we can divide the course with half written and half oral. Spanish and French are my mother tongues and for English I have a very advanced C1 level. I taught diving courses in English, French and Spanish for 3 years abroad. In addition, I have just returned from a year of exchange through the ERASMUS program in Dublin, Ireland. We will also practice pronunciation.

Refresher course in English (primary, middle school, high school, adults)
Currently studying for a Master of Research at Aix-Marseille University, I offer refresher courses in English for all levels. I had the opportunity to pass the TOEIC last year as part of my training and I scored 800 out of 990 points which allowed me to evaluate my level. Attracted by foreign languages ​​since always, I had the opportunity to work abroad and in collaboration with English speakers. Through this course, I would like to help people develop their everyday vocabulary in English. I can also help anyone who wants to take the TOEIC. I also took English lessons throughout my schooling which allowed me to acquire a solid foundation in grammar and to develop a rich lexicon. I am therefore able to offer upgrades to students or students in the field by targeting courses according to the difficulties of the person.
