Exploring Literature and Culture: Personalised Discussion

- This class is suitable for people who have never studied literature before as well as those currently at school/university. It will focus on literature, but will be interdisciplinary where appropriate - discussion could bring in history, film, music or any other relevant field/area of interest to the student. The class will be based around discussion and your critical response to texts.
- I can discuss specific topics, periods or material with you. This class would be useful for anyone preparing for exams or university interviews. I can help you to read around the subject as well as become comfortable with certain texts. Alternatively, we can explore material that is completely new to you, depending on your needs/preferences.

About Me

Hello! I'm a naturally curious person who loves to talk about the English language, literature, and culture. Alongside a high level of education, I have mentoring and proofreading experience - I love to work with students to improve essay quality and confidence.
My teaching style is based on elicitation and collaboration. I want to help you express your thoughts, in speaking as well as writing.
I'm a gentle communicator and good listener, but I also bring humour and passion to the classroom.
I hope to speak with you soon!

Education

I graduated from the University of Oxford in BA English Language & Literature, and later gained an MA in Modern Literature, Culture and Thought from the University of Sussex.

Experience / Qualifications

- I have proofread A-Level, undergraduate and postgraduate essays for several years, and have experience mentoring students in an academic context.
- I'm TEFL-qualified and teach English as an Additional Language at a range of levels.
- I will help you to perfect your essay. We will read through your work together, talking about (among other things) grammar, word choice, word count, structure, and clarity. I can also work with you on a referencing system and/or bibliography. My aim is to work with you, so that you can apply any criticism to future pieces of writing. - If you've started the essay but haven't finished, that's fine - we'll discuss the work you do have and talk more generally about how to complete the essay.
- I teach English using the communicative method, which means that you will learn primarily through speaking. I will work with you on pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary through conversations about a range of subjects, based on your interests and needs. - I specialise in General English but can also teach Business topics or IELTS/Cambridge preparation.
This will be a personalised class, which might include: - personal statement editing/help - help with other documents you need to submit - general interview practice - Oxbridge interview practice (I'm an Oxbridge graduate myself) We can decide the exact content of your class depending on your needs.

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 turor 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.
