German tutoring by graduate university

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
University graduate in German language and literature (Master of Arts in German with specialization in Medieval Languages and Literature) with a solid experience gives private German lessons for all levels.
Courses adapted according to the needs of the student. They aim to consolidate concepts, fill in gaps, prepare for exams (maturity, compulsory school leaving certificates, entrance exams to gyms, university, Goethe Zertifikat up to C1) and / or learn about language.

For school supports:
It is above all a work on the long term. Therefore, any exercise is explained in detail, which can make its execution slower: the quality is priority to the quantity in order to obtain an optimal result in the long term. Students bring their own course material (notebooks, books, audio CDs, dictionaries, assessments, etc.). It is important to note that only my presence and my explanations are not enough to obtain satisfactory results. That's why I take the time to "learn to learn" effectively.


For conversation classes:
Topics are based on interests and / or specific needs for exam preparation. I give special importance to pronunciation, fluency and vocabulary. Depending on the level of the students and / or their expectations (preparation exams / assessments / desire for improvement for example), I work on the choice of appropriate words, grammatical accuracy, the ability to formulate more or less complex sentences.

For exam preparations:
The courses offer to acquire solid tools to learn how to write, to comment on literary texts and a methodology to work on the oral comprehension. The student will have to bring his own booklet of exam preparations available in all bookstores. For the Gothe Institute examinations, the Cornlesen exam books are particularly suitable. The other alternative would be to download AND PRINT before the beginning of the course an examination copy of GOETHE INSTITUT available on the site of the institute itself.

For the oral comprehension:
work from visual audio views downloaded from the DEUTSCHE WELLE website, which offer various recordings adapted to all levels, with a very concrete approach. The student acquires long-term fluency not only in oral comprehension, but also enriches his basic vocabulary through exercises. I am also working on the oral tests of the Goethe Institute to familiarize with oral.

For the work of the written expression:
I begin by explaining in the first lesson some methodological tools to acquire writing skills. The student has the opportunity to start writing during the course or do a writing exercise on duty and give it to me to correct (send by email or at the beginning of the next lesson). The corrections are explained in detail. In addition, at the time of booking, the student can send me a draft copy before the lesson so that I can meet his needs even more quickly.

Apart from my presence with the student, any course involves a preparation time before and after the lesson, especially for 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. In addition, each student can contact me at any time outside the course by email if necessary.

About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
It's been 22 years since I gave private lessons, starting with German, a language that immediately fascinated me through the discovery of captivating literary texts. Over time, this language has become an art that I not only want to know in every detail, but also to share it through my teachings. Subsequently, I completed my offer with French classes shortly before obtaining my Bachelor of Arts (German and medieval French).
Each course and discipline is adapted to the particular needs and wishes of my students. The most important thing for me is to make every effort to create motivation for each learner. To do this, I always strive to show in what practical situation for everyday life a grammatical tool can serve. Therefore, creating my own teaching method from various books allows not only an individualized approach, but also to give meaning to each new notion to acquire.

In addition to my teaching, I strive to be available by answering questions by email and / or phone for each of them. This is important for me, as I strongly encourage self-employment outside of my presence, especially when it comes to tutoring. In this regard, when I make a commitment to one of them, I take time to clearly express my expectations and listen to theirs. Indeed, for a long-term result, providing regular individual work outside of support hours and / or courses to progress is essential. In the same way that learning an instrument involves working one's scales outside of a lesson, making progress in a subject implies a substantial investment.

At the level of tutoring, consolidating concepts, assimilating vocabulary, catching up on the backlog, preparing assessments require a lot of work. Reason why, I do everything to plan my courses in the long term. As for homework, giving it on my own initiative makes little sense to me, as it may overload. That said, I am happy to edit a variety of personal work and advise on exercises for optimal preparation for future exams upon request. Moreover, my goal is not that the student learns with me his vocabulary on the spot, nor to do homework directly with him. However, I take the necessary time to show how to solve an exercise, learn vocabulary, recite if necessary. Thus, students can acquire the necessary tools to work independently. The ideal is to take a minimum of 90 minutes to do a better job, especially if it is to prepare the exams. Concerned to provide quality and professional work, I am even available to collaborate with the teachers at your request, to help the person to the maximum. From experience, I have always found it beneficial to share a few words with teachers who tell me their expectations of support courses and inform me about the special needs of the student. This allows me to target my work more effectively and to move in the same direction as the student's teacher.

Elise is very well structured - thanks to the way how she explains rules in French, it's easier to understand and engage. For the first time I see the light in the tunel :)
Excellent prof Élise m’a aidé pour mes restes et j’ai eu un 5 sur 6 Merci encore pour tout
Elise is very good. She knows exactly what to do and how to explain to an 11yr old without making it complicated. My daughter is very happy with her and so are we.
Très bonne experience. Elise a préparé son cours avec soin à chaque fois pour avoir une vue d'ensemble et que je progresse rapidement. Sa méthodologie est clairement efficace, on ressent qu'elle a beaucoup d'experience dans ce domaine.
Bravo pour le renforcement positif. Elise fait ressortir les acquis et les forces que les élèves possèdent déjà.

French private lessons are for students wishing: - consolidate their bases in grammar, othograph - 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 goal is above all to acquire effective tools. Students will learn how to structure their ideas, argue in a coherent (and convincing) way and enrich their 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.

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 give French lessons (school or foreign language), German and English at all levels and to people of all ages.
