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 long-term job. That's why, I take the time to "learn how to learn" in an efficient way: every exercise is explained in detail, which can make its execution slower. Quality takes precedence over quantity in order to achieve optimal long-term results. Students bring their own course material (notebooks, books, audio CDs, dictionaries, assessments, etc.).
Another important point: in order for my help to be beneficial, it is necessary for the student to provide regular personal work between lessons. It is essentially a question of rereading notes, redoing exercises similar to those carried out together or even advancing in the learning of vocabulary.


For conversation classes:

Topics are based on interests and / or specific needs for exam preparation. I give special importance to pronunciation, fluency and vocabulary. I usually correct at the end of a conversation exercise with detailed feedback, this to avoid blocking and work on fluidity. 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.

Feel free to contact me for more information.

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 each discipline is tailored to the specific needs and wishes of my students. The most important thing for me is above all to do everything possible to motivate each learner. To do this, I always try to show in what practical everyday situation a grammar tool can be used. This is why, creating my own teaching method myself from various books allows not only to have an individualized approach, but also to give meaning to each new notion to be acquired.

In addition to my teaching, I try to be available by answering questions by message for each of them. This point is important for me, insofar as I strongly encourage independent personal work outside my presence, especially when it comes to school support. In this regard, when I engage with one of them, I take the time to clearly express my expectations and listen to theirs. Indeed, for a long-term result, providing regular individual work outside the hours of support and / or lessons to progress is essential. In the same way that learning an instrument involves working your scales outside of a lesson, making progress in a subject involves a significant 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.

Beaucoup de patience, Renseigne lentement, peu de matière
Elise est un excellent professeur, elle s'est mettre en confiance, elle s'adapte parfaitement aux besoins de l'élève et fait preuve d'une grande pédagogie. Je recommande vivement Elise
Élise est excellente dans l’apprentissage de l’allemand en fournissant méthode et rigueur. Nos discussions sont toujours très intéressantes. Je la recommande à 100%.
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.

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 student will thus be able to learn to structure his ideas, argue coherently (and convincingly) and enrich his vocabulary. It is essential for me to have written work from the student between each lesson. 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.

Kevin
Individual German seminar for learning in turbo mode. All levels
THE PUPIL This announcement is aimed at both pupils and adults wishing to acquire the German language. I offer tailor-made individual German seminars for levels A1 (beginner) to C2 (perfect mastery). My goal is to make my student independent as quickly as possible. THE METHOD Contrary to popular belief, German is a very tame language. You are certainly familiar with the language courses at school. You are given lists to learn by heart and you are asked to do exercises completely unrelated to the reality of a speaker. We explain grammar to you by confusing French grammar and German grammar. This is why no one manages to express themselves in German having undergone this kind of method which has proven for a century that it does not work. With me, my student has a second chance thanks to intelligent theory and pragmatic methodology. Indeed, I am currently writing a book on the acquisition of foreign languages. THE TEACHER I have 5 years of experience teaching German and an average rating of 5/5. German is my mother tongue, with no particular accent. I master French as if it were a mother tongue. I am fluent in English and Portuguese and have an intermediate level in Latin as well as some basics of Greek. My personal linguistic goal at the moment is to master Latin fluently orally. To maximize the quality of the courses, the sessions take place by video call in combination with Google Drive: - individual tailor-made course - interactive text document - interactive whiteboard - photos or scans can be imported - readable writing - instant written feedback during speaking - very flexible schedule - no time-consuming trips If you are interested, do not hesitate to contact me to arrange an appointment or to ask me your questions. I look forward to meeting you.

Mounia
Private lessons in natural / human language and science
The learning of the English and German language is done in a proactive and stimulating way, learning via the active way with simulation and exercise in order to obtain optimal results after a more or less short period of learning, through the grammar and vocabulary in order to learn the real language used by the English and German populations. Regarding chemistry lessons, learning through visualization with contextual settings and explanations accompanied by examples is necessary to fully understand. Teach the student to get into the habit of doing his exercises and to understand the statements so that he is able to do them alone.
