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.

Russian Language A1 - C2 / Русский язык и литература
Hi All, thank you for checking out my course. This class is open to students of all levels. Whether you are only starting to learn the wild-looking letters of the Cyrillic alphabet, or whether you are looking to practise your written and spoken Russian, I would be delighted to accompany you at any stage of your Russian-learning journey. For more advanced students, I would be happy to help you get to know one of the most defining aspects of the Russian language, namely its novels and poetry, which would be a great way to learn about the 'mysterious' Russian soul. I believe that studying in three different countries have allowed me to try out and assess various approaches to education in general and teaching languages in particular - from the rigourous Russian system based on ensuring that the students will obtain exceptional spelling, grammar, syntax and punctuation skills, to the more relaxed yet more critical and analytical Western approach, focused on problem-solving and independent work. There is a vast bank of techniques and methods that will be used in class to peak and maintain your interest. And since I'm a student too, I would be able to share my personal tips and tricks with you to help you reach whatever goal you have set for yourself - be it being able to wow your friends and family by reciting a poem in the language of Dostoyevski, or impressing your future collegues with the thorough knowledge of Russian current affairs in their mother tongue!

Communication Training (Professional / Personal) & Public Speaking
Whether your goal is personal or professional, speaking is a predominantly physical activity, relying on a body, a voice, a breath, a rhythm (diction) and an emotion (the imagination and the sensations, reflecting the involvement of the speaker in his speech. How to send a clear message? How to make the difference, to make an impression? How to regain self-confidence and control the management of his emotions? Knowing how to speak in public is now a necessity for the company and in the company. From a personal point of view, this is a vector for better relationships and optimal messages. On the phone, in a meeting, in front of a client or a banker (…), your public speaking must be effective and efficient with clear, simple and powerful messages, creating a match between the message received and the message sent. Simple and pragmatic tools will be presented and then put into practice for: generating listening ● making an impression ● fostering trust ● generating need ● motivating teams by explaining a strategy ● getting messages across within groups. Controlled, the method allows: • improve self-confidence and stress management with the development of the speaker's fluency (verbal-bodily), his public speaking and his sense of repartee and improvisation • to work on his ease, leadership, his NLP, his charisma, his creativity and to go towards a certain personal development, through a set of scenarios * improve the characteristics of the spoken voice (timbre, pitch, intention, flow) Completed by basic exercises (diction, voice, presence, breathing, presentation, time management ...), role plays, improvisations and simulations will be set up. With the key words: pronunciation, rhetoric, verbal and non-verbal communication, diction / articulation, the sense of repartee, structured speech (…). The goal is not only to focus on verbal communication but also on nonverbal communication, so as to make the control of his body, his voice (...), a real and lasting strength. Depending on the interaction between the trainer - coach and the one who consults, there is no single way to operate: each type of session depends on the needs and difficulties of each. In all cases, it is very often a question, while adapting to your own needs and after having precisely diagnosed your desired objective and the blockages encountered, to combine the theory (the bases of the studied concept, for example NLP / information asymmetry / the "how to say no" / the tools of non-verbal communication or the application of kinaesthesia) and its application (through exercises and direct applications). For example, are discussed: - the fundamentals of public speaking: breathing, gaze and body language - diction and elocution: rhythm and range of your voice - management of your emotions and your emotional overflow (example: stress) - work on the body, to amplify your charisma and ensure consistency between your message and your body ... with the aim of: * Enhance your presentation and arouse interest by focusing on your strengths, your qualities ... your personality * Match the content and form of your message * Improve your charisma, your self-confidence and the benefits of your emotional intelligence Postgraduate School Training & Ivy league college in the United States, specialized and worked for over 13 years, in Europe and North America, in the field of communication and public speaking in renowned public and private international institutions, involved in forums and conferences, and focused on two areas: training and coaching, with the key words pedagogy and careful methodology.

In this context, the videoconference sessions for which you asked me to seem to suit everyone perfectly, take place very optimally and generate a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). That is why, at your request, I continue to offer this option. Take good care of yourself and yours! PROGRAM A la carte program: evaluated and adapted to each need.
Training in public speaking, eloquence and public speaking
After 8 years of theater and many eloquence contests, I decided to share this passion for public speaking with you. Everyone can learn to speak in public, and to have the basics for arguing an idea. Tired of talking under the impression that no one is listening to you? I offer you a course to define clear, simple and powerful messages, to reach all those who listen to you. I will teach you how to build a speech and how to defend an idea! Then we will also work on how to stand, that's all that makes the speech! During a lesson, above all, I let the person express themselves by asking them to tell what they want to identify the gaps (if it is the intonation, the words used, the body, etc.). Following that we will do some exercises to improve. The course may feel a little awkward for the person speaking, since I will analyze the words and the way of speaking, please know that it is completely professional, in no case will there be any judgement. We all have our own and unique word, I'm not here to denigrate it ☺️

Boost your Study Skills: General or Assignment-based Tutoring
Hi, my name is Dave and I am a University (BSc) graduate who attended one of the top University Honors Colleges in the Netherlands. During my many years in the education system I have developed strong skills in academics, studying and teaching. The specific goal of this course is to give a meaningful boost to the student's ability to study efficiently and independently. This course is highly adaptable to the student's needs and preferences. Perhaps you would like support for a specific assignment, help to prepare for a tough exam or for me to review an essay you have written; or maybe you just have trouble studying efficiently and you are in need of some tips and tricks. My goal is always to not only help the student during the class, but also to provide them with the tools they need to thrive by themselves afterward. My own specialty lies mainly in the fields of Social Sciences, Politics, (Political) Economics, Game Theory, History, Religion, Philosophy and Academic Writing. I also have a decent amount of experience with International Law, Statistics and Geography. However, the overwhelming majority of the principles and tactics I teach in this class can be applied to any field or discipline, as the emphasis is put on the method of studying more so than on the content.
