English Language and Literature Tuition for Upper Primary up to Sixth Form

For over 20 years I have specialised in teaching English in schools in England, Scotland, Germany, Malaysia and Turkey. My students are energised and never frightened to think and ask questions. I believe in lifelong learning and whether teaching Language Arts, EAL or English Literature for High School exam students, my students are encouraged to question, challenge themselves and become global thinkers in a warm environment with personalised support.

Combining Language and Literature increases students' ability to interpret information analytically and through exploring culture - a skill which I believe helps them to be culturally sensitive, empathetic and aware of the world's possibilities and limits.

About Me

* Young at heart (and still not TOO old), I create a fun and energetic learning environment which students always look forward to attending.
* I've taught students from 6-60 and most recently was a deputy head in an international school in Turkey.
* I have achieved the top IGCSE and IBDP results in every school I have worked in but also love working with upper primary/lower secondary too.
* I try to open up the world to my students and encourage them to think analytically and push themselves to achieve success for today but also tomorrow.

French private lessons by university graduate in Letters
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 pupil will thus be able to learn to structure his ideas, to argue in a coherent (and convincing) way and to enrich his 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.

Peishan
Chinese tutor for Chinese/ Mandarin (simplified and traditional )
Giving my background in Foreign Languages and Literature as my bachelor study, and Adult and Continuing Education as my master degree, I gain great professional abilities in languages and education. Since I was 18 years old, I've been offering language teaching to the students, who are from 5-70 years old. I possess a wide range of Mandarin teaching experiences that I've given one-to-one and group classes before, and even online classes to people all over the world, through which I gained all the experiences teaching people with all the different culture and also all levels from A1-C2, and even with the clients who need to prepare for Mandarin verification exams( HSK, Hànyǔ Shuǐpíng Kǎoshì). When it comes to the most forgettable teaching experience I've ever had, I think it was my former job that I gave language and culture class in a community university for 3.5 years. There, I merged language teaching, diversified culture, with European and South-East Asian cooking, and it was certainly a great fun. I am now also working in the international school in Geneva for the IB exam system, which is pretty challenging, but it broadens my abilities. With more than 10 years of working in the Mandarin as well as English tutor/ teaching field, I believe my qualifications will match your learning requirements.

Ali
Master of Arts teaches beginner and advanced level Persian (Farsi).
Master in Modern Letters, I offer private lessons in the Persian language (Farsi) which is my mother tongue for those who like to venture into learning this language, take the plunge into the other or simply for s '' offer a moment of travel outside of everyday life. All levels are accepted. Having followed the training of trainers at the cultural center of the Embassy of France in Iran and with an experience of 5 years of private lessons devoted to the teaching of my mother tongue to French learners, I know the teaching methods and their application in my courses in a personalized way. I apply the pragmatic and indirect method in my classes to bypass and better approach the teaching of grammar. Each learner is unique and has their own goals and preferred method. I adapt my courses according to each profile. Feel free to contact me for more information.

British and American Culture and Literature, Minority Literatures
Literature in English language is a very broad term. The biggest number of popular English language texts comes from the USA and the UK, however, there are many other places where English is spoken as a native language and interesting texts are produced. You can learn with me the following subjects: 1. American literature (including native American literature). 2. British literature (including Welsh and Scottish literature). 3. Selected areas of literature in English from Canada, Australia, India and South Africa.

What can I teach? - I can prepare you for exams in pedagogics, psychology, philosophy, linguistics. - Psychology (developmental / school / clinical / social) - Philosophy (mainly ancient philosophy, e.g. Socrates, Plato, Aristotle) - Linguistics / phonology / grammar / syntax During my lessons I use : - Skype/Whatsapp/Messenger to connect with you, - Google Docs to keep notes, which you can check at any time and they are yours to keep, - sketch board me to make mind maps/diagrams to show connections between ideas, etc. I adore my profession and desire each and every one of my students be satisfied with the lesson. That's why I make sure the atmosphere is stress-free and nice. I also want my lessons to be as effective as possible. Therefore, I make sure they are well-prepared, although they can be altered at any point, should such an opportunity arise. I like explaining things in a variety of ways as well as make use of dictionaries, diagrams, etc. When it comes to students who want to obtain certificates, I am very demanding.
