Private Japanese Lesson by Certified Native Japanese Tutor
Konnichiwa Hello! I am Japanese native from Osaka and currently living in Switzerland since 2005. I offer private Japanese lessons to people from complete beginner level including children to advanced level. In the first meeting, I will ask several questions to fully understand the needs of the student and will propose the lesson contents. Based on the objective of each student, I will be using a balanced approach that will improve listening, speaking, reading, and writing through textbooks, exercises, conversation, and games. I can teach in Japanese or English fluently and in French to a certain extent. I offer my lesson online or face to face near my place. You will find my lesson engaging and interactive. Please feel free to ask me any questions.

Coaching: speaking online or in public, speaking voice work, stress management.
Managing stress, controlling your voice when you have to speak in public (in a conference, webcast or webinar), offering clear and well-structured information, these can represent famous challenges, especially today when it is necessary do this online. To achieve your goals, I offer you a holistic approach to public speaking because, to convey a message, form and content are intimately linked. After a few sessions, you will feel more confident, more convincing. Your interlocutors will be more attentive to the information you want to transmit. Your voice will stay clear longer. Through stress management, you will feel a great boost of energy and concentration. Regarding the form, we will work in particular, the posture, the breathing, the modulation of the voice, the volume, the height, the intonation, and also the eye contact, the gestures, the pauses, in short, what one calls the "non-verbal". We will also see the elements that take precedence during a presentation or an exchange on the Internet. And, if it helps, we'll see the different ways to handle your stress. We will establish your profile to choose the tools that suit you best. Finally, if you have short deadlines (or not), you can put yourself in situation and, for example, prepare an interview, a presentation, a conference or a meeting. We will make simulations that will allow you to be in full possession of your means and the content of your intervention.

Do not be alone: Gain autonomy and ease in Japanese
My name is Amandine and I am a beginner Japanese teacher, specializing in the linguistic preparation of travel for 16-30 year olds. It has been 12 years since I returned from my stay in Japan. Over the years and feedback from my students, I have established a methodology and practical tools according to the objective of each: - To deepen the knowledge of the Japanese culture. - Acquire language bases in preparation for a trip (business / sabbatical year). - Prepare for exams (BAC, JLPT). - Analyze your mistakes to improve your results. - Improve your oral expression. - Advise on the steps to be taken / followed in relation to your project. Basically, I was not a student particularly gifted for foreign languages! I would have to wait until high school to trigger a keen need to get my dream: go to Japan! After high school, I did not study at all to be a teacher, translator or performer! * So why do I continue to devote my time to private lessons? * It all started with Marine looking for a host family to host Yuka for 3 months! A year later, I leave in exchange student in Japan living in immersion exclusively in host families, this is how: - I was admitted to the famous Kokugakuin High School. - I visited Tokyo, Kyoto and Niigata. - I became "ambassador" of France. - I won the 3rd place in the "speech contest" in Japanese, just behind the Thai and Taiwanese, facing 8 foreign students of all nationalities in long stay, just like me. On my return, I spent the JLPT N3 to certify my level by the Japanese institution! I really want to share this passion for those who have a crush on the land of the Rising Sun! * Who is my course for? * To those who have a concrete project related to the Japanese language. Whether you're starting from scratch or having notions, I'm here to guide you and support you so that you gain autonomy and ease in the Japanese. * How is the first class going? * I take 30 minutes to 1 hour to learn to discover, together we see your goals, the time to reach them, the pace of learning that suits you and I test your level. It's a good time to ask all your questions! For those who take several courses with me, know that I make a review every 10 courses to validate and remain consistent with your goals. * And what about my methodology? * I have created and tested my method for 6 years. It is simple, tailor-made, accessible and fun! It is important to me that this corresponds to your personality, your needs, and your abilities. I had more than ten students of any profile that I followed between 2 months to 2 years in individual classes or in groups (up to 4 people). I am thinking in particular of: - Jérôme, 17 years old, who obtained an excellent grade (17/20) in LV3 in oral Japanese to be able to enter the University of Lille 3. - Jean-Claude, 50, who wanted to start a business in Japan and who won his JLPT N4 after continuous efforts. - Pierre, 25, who came to find me to get an internship in architecture company in Osaka and managed to get it. - Romain (27 years old) and Maëva (26 years old) who go off as a couple in PVT in 2018! They came to find me, challenged me and gave me their trust and I am grateful! * What does my rate include? * I do not apply a fee based on the student's level or because I have a degree. Foreign languages cost with a native between 30-40 € per hour. My course is really complete and unique, sincerely you will not find courses like mine and I say it with a lot of humility! In a class you can see grammar, vocabulary, exercises, speaking, listening, etc. In addition I create the media, it takes me time because it's tailor-made! Finally my class does not stop at class! That is to say that I stay in touch with you, I have already helped one of my students at a distance when he was in Japan and I do it heartily without asking you to take out your CB ;) I do not charge travel expenses. Either I give lessons at home or I give classes at the student if it is served by means of transport and I do not put more than 30 minutes in! So far none of my students have failed me, an unforeseen happens, just prevent! Same for delays! In short, I base my relationships on communication, respect and trust and so far it has been successful;) And you ? Do you want to reach your dreams? In this case, book a class! In the meantime, I'm curious to know more about my future sparks: - Do you have a project that is important to you and that the Japanese need? - What is causing you the most difficulty? Memorization? Writing ? Speaking out ? I answer all the questions! I am convinced that one can learn and obtain results through constant effort, pedagogy, benevolence and pleasure! Amandine 愛 満 多 よ り

MAKING ONESELF HEARD! (For Public Speaking & Presentations)
Explore Public Speaking through... Intonation and Melody When training for a presentation, decide which words and passages deserve extra attention and increase the tone to emphasize these points. If something sounds exaggerated or false, your audience can turn against you. Volume A speech is not ordinary conversation, and a presenter can’t convey passion and enthusiasm if the words are delivered softly. Clarity Don’t forget to articulate every word, to ensure clarity on your part and understanding on the part of the audience. Emphasis Even in the same sentence, emphasizing different words can change the focus of a message. Changing emphasis can alter meaning and/or implication. Pauses when pauses are placed in strategic spots in a speech, they can make the difference between a good and an excellent presentation. There are several purposes for which pauses can be used: to give listeners a chance to absorb something that’s just been said; to generate expectations about something that’s going to be said... Pacing & Tone If you often get negative feedback about the faster or slower delivery of your speeches, practice delivering a speech sometimes faster and sometimes slower, so you can arrive at a natural pace.

Tailor-made Russian Language Classes for All Levels
The Russian language proves to be very challenging for all speakers - even for those born in Russia. However, I have a demonstrated excellent knowledge of the normative literary Russian language thanks to my philological and pedagogical academic training. The major linguistic pair I work with is Russian - English (besides, it becomes helpful for the students when I also incorporate references to French or Dutch when needed). As an experienced private tutor and university teacher who understands the struggles of her students, I'm able to find a personal approach to each of them. Our linguistic classes will be enriched with background information about Russia, its history and culture, so that you become even more motivated to master this rich but complicated language. And once the "tough nut" is cracked - an amazing new universe will reveal itself for you :)
