English and French Tutoring/ Preparation for ACT and SAT

Learning ESL or French as a non-native speaker can seem like a daunting task. Fortunately, my style of tutoring incorporates lessons plans with entertaining exercises and activities. Each lesson I establish a cultural objective to give some cultural significance to the information. I also include a grammar and lexical objective which will target key vocabulary and grammar structure common when speaking about specific cultural topics. Each session begins with a warm up to test your memory and present new information, a production to apply the grammar and lexical tools With exercises, and an independent short project to complete at the end.

I prefer for students to bring a notebook or a laptop

Chiara
Italian, French, Spanish, English classes for adults and children
My name is Chiara, I'm a native Italian speaker and I work as a freelance translator and interpreter. I have a Master's Degree in Specialised Translation. I have been teaching Italian, French, Spanish and English for over 5 years, to both adults and children. I used to work as an Italian and Spanish teacher at an Agency of the European Union while I was living in Strasbourg, France. I fluently speak all four languages and I use them in my everyday life since my clients come from all over Europe. Of all the work experiences I have had, teaching to children is definitely the one that satisfied me the most. I enjoy teaching to bilingual children and help them overcome the challenges of having a bilingual brain. Since I am a freelancer, I am very flexible in terms of working hours and I can adapt to the student's needs and requests. I look forward to hearing from you! Chiara

Voulez-vous parler la langue de Molière avec fluidité ? N'hésitez pas à me contacter !
Salut, avant tout je me présente. Je me nomme Majda, une jeune fille marocaine, assistante de conversation française à Barcelone, puis à Madrid. D'ailleurs, j'avais suivi mes études supérieures à l'Université Ibn Tofail (au Maroc), et après avoir eu en fin de cursus un diplôme de la licence fondamentale du département de langue et littérature françaises, option linguistique, j'ai pu commencer mon stage d'assistanat à l'étranger (en Espagne). En effet, j'enseigne mes cours de français aux étudiants qui ont une volonté de réussir et qui s'intéressent à apprendre petit à petit les bases de la langue, pour pouvoir par la suite les utiliser au cours d'une très vive conversation.

Everyone learns differently and at their own pace, so I adapt my teaching to the needs of my student. Remedial lessons, pronunciation, writing or general comprehension assistance. Learning the language alone or combined with culture, anything is possible!
