About Me

I am moved to help anyone who through experiences has lost the self-esteem, motivation or drive. I believe everyone deserves to be happy. Everyone under the sun deserves more in life. I am the person who tries to inspire anyone I come across to achieve better in life. I am counting on meeting people who think all hope is lost and gone. People who think no one cares for them. People who think they cannot achieve anything in life.

All I will ask for is for you to give me a chance.

Education

I am a graduate of UIniversity of Ghana. I studied the undergraduate program, BA Adult Education and Sociology. I successfully completed the program in the year 2017 with a CGPA of 2.99

Experience / Qualifications

I have years of experience in helping friends who initially thought all was lost to achieve more beyond their wildest imagination. I am a qualified adult educator/counseller

Introduction to Japanese: The Kana booster (hiragana & katakana)
こ ん に ち は (Hello) That's it you decided to seriously learn Japanese to get closer to your goal? How to learn a new language when you have passed the stage of childhood? Do you fear oblivion or retrogression? When you learn the Japanese alphabet in high school or university, it takes between 3 to 6 months to anchor the learning of hiragana and katakana. I know this frustration of not going fast enough to then be able to read it, write it, understand it and speak it! Forget the romaji which are a real obstacle to learning Japanese even if I understand that it is a comfortable benchmark for learners. I created "the Kana booster" to support you in your first steps towards the Japanese language: - Discovery of Japanese characters - Pronunciation of the alphabet - Introduction to the writing system - Maintenance of the syllabary thanks to memorization - Kana challenge I had to learn hiragana like you in several months. On the other hand for the katakana, I only had 15 days to memorize them before my Japanese school year! This is why I have compiled my knowledge and know-how for you! I have my little tips and my personal methods so that you can acquire the basics to pursue your passion! *Who should attend ?* Pure beginners or those who need to refresh their memories or people who have lost their motivation as well as those who want to start / start again on good foundations! * How does the course actually work? * In 30 minutes we dynamically do the alphabet line by line. A real exchange between the learner and me. I reveal the errors and correct them. I give keys on the traps to avoid. We see the alphabet in all its forms in different approaches. Finally we take stock at the end of the lesson. * And what about my methodology? * With 6 years of language teaching with a different learner profile and around the world, then after working in South Korea and Japan with companies that prioritize education, I developed my vision and the tools necessary for the proper development of the learning of a foreign language for non-Aboriginal people. Being a teacher / student, I test myself what I offer. it allows me to identify the strengths and weaknesses of my media in order to improve the content and aim for excellence. For learning this course is suitable for young and old, I speak French, English and Japanese fluently so I can teach the course in these languages. * What does my rate include? * "Kana's booster" is at its launch price. This is a "boost" course to help you learn faster and save you time! Once mastered, you can easily assimilate other notions of the Japanese language and be one step ahead of others. By choosing me, you can always be in contact with me and ask me questions about your problems (even outside the course) Send a course request and let's practice together! Amandine 愛 満 多 よ り

BEHAVIORAL (LIFE) COACHING: OVERCOMING BLOCKS, CHANGE MANAGEMENT, PRAGMATIC PSYCHOLOGY & PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT
➤Objective of these sessions? Understand the thought mechanisms & induced emotion, linked to given everyday situations and which involve blockages then act concretely through pragmatic techniques adapted to your problem, and which will be quickly proposed to you to regain power over your life thanks to the methodologies & practices of behavioral coaching. ➤This is why, choosing the appropriate mediator to carry out a quality work and help oneself to advance / overcome certain mechanisms will induce the awareness necessary for this decided change. This will then allow to register in a new dynamic in the personal & professional fields. ➤To lead this change, achieve its aspirations, improve its quality of life and develop the functioning of its cognitive, emotional or behavioral sphere, a cohort of very concrete tools and concepts are at our disposal, and which involve deepening the self-exploration. This involves questioning yourself, analyzing, taking a distance, and understanding the issues / points causing suffering, before finally freeing yourself from it. ➤Examples of topics / issues regularly addressed and which are regularly supported by a dedicated specialist coach, adapted to your plan: • Self-confidence, self-esteem and assertiveness, shyness, decision-making, assertiveness, personal development • Reduce suffering (phobia, stress, anguish, anxiety, negative thoughts, panic, depression) and modify behaviors that are detrimental to well-being (post-traumatic stress, injuries, addictions), to better manage emotions & regain life. appeasement • Concentration, procrastination, organization, professional efficiency, time management • Professional / personal relationships (family, romantic, friendly, emotional…) & social: communication difficulties generating pain & frustration in the (..) PROGRAM (..) the fluidity of relations • Professional life: tensions, pressures & conflicts, (Re) professional orientation (CV, cover letter, job interview), competitions and exams, support in a business project, teamwork ➤Each point is the subject of techniques adapted to your situation, which you will probably never have put into practice… and which have been proven on the people supported. ➤Thus, although involving self-exploration, coaching remains concrete in its application and bears fruit from the first sessions, since it makes people autonomous, and not dependent. ➤You will understand, specializing in life support and personal & professional projects, it is our proven skills and the positive feedback from all the people previously supported that makes us able to support you, by catalyzing the keys to your success, through a methodology and pragmatic tools, adapted to your situation. ➤And if cookie-cutter advice is not offered, that you will never be led but guided without judgment, in a process of permanent / interactive co-construction ... it is because we believe that it It is first important to analyze together, to become aware, to study jointly, to deepen, to decode your blockages and your initial problem in order to clarify your aspirations. ➤Influenced by cognitive & behavioral therapies, by Anglo-Saxon coaching instruments and the European methodology of applied psychotherapy, the approach therefore aims to seek links between current difficulties and past experiences, including repressed and unresolved conflicts and to confront difficulties which may be partially linked to inappropriate thoughts or behaviors learned / adopted often in spite of oneself. ➤So, how does a session go? After having identified together a problem, blockages (..) Prerequisites (..) and objectives, it is a matter of analyzing them together and then proposing a series of suggestions / reflections / pragmatic actions. Concretely, a session = a reflection + solutions. From the second session, 98% of our coaches say they have felt a clear difference that has influenced their daily life * (2020 study). ➤ THE THERAPIST - COACH: Trained in a Grande Ecole post-preparatory European classes & Ivy League university in the United States, our teacher has specialized and has been working for more than 16 years, in Europe & North America, in the field, in reputable international public & private establishments, intervening in forums and conferences. ➤ PLACE, TIME, • Locations: Geneva-Lausanne-Friborg-Zurich-Neuchâtel-Lugano-Montreux-Bâle-Neuchâtel-Bern-Lucerne-Brussels-Luxembourg-Paris-Lyon.

Technical, artistic, and improvisation skills are the three main aspects that I put in my teaching priority, but the most important of all the lesson will be FUN! CHILDREN, TEENAGERS, ADULTS, ELDERLY, EVERYONE IS WELCOME! I help students to find their own true voice by: - Learning healthy vocal techniques: breathing, vowels, larynx, sound placement - Exploring music: aria/lieder, musical, pop, Disney music, hymns, etc - Learning the articulation and pronunciation of the lyrics - Expressing the emotions of the music WHERE? Live lesson or online lesson, anything is possible! Wherever you feel comfortable. I can teach at home, your place (The Hague area), or via online lessons.

Self-Esteem & Resilience Building Program - Leading to Better Grades, Better Mental Health & Better Future Prospects
A step-by-step tuition program that: Builds self-esteem Increases resilience Improves wellbeing Improves communication Improves study skills Resources provided include: -Mentoring -3D animation videos to explain concepts -Worksheets -Other supplementary materials This program has been turned into a workshop and will be delivered at both Oxford and Cambridge universities for first year students. Every student needs assistance to rebound after the pandemic and lockdowns. I have the expertise to get students back on track. I have tutored students from the most prestigious schools in the country as well as students internationally. Some of the students I have worked with have attended world renowned institutions like Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard & MIT. I have delivered talks at schools on student success and have authored four books on topics such as productivity, time-management, self-discipline & confidence. I have founded the first online personal development academy for teenagers (Nexgen Teens) based around a holistic approach to learning called The Nexgen Method which I created. I also create wellbeing & mental health resources for young people at schools and universities. My role is not only in preparing students for the future but it is giving them the confidence to shape it. My objective is to inspire, motivate and cultivate ambitious young students who have the ability to identify and fulfil their aspirations. I combine five interlinked components that, if worked on in tandem, can drastically change a students life for the better and aid them in becoming the pioneers of the future. These 5 strands are: 1) Mindset 2) Wellbeing Management 3) Study Skills 4) Life Skills 5) Leadership Development I place a special emphasis on personal development and this is what makes me different. I believe it is possible to equip students with the mindset and skillset to radically alter their lives for the better. My instruction goes beyond this by including study skills such as note-taking, memory improvement techniques, speed-reading, and effective revision into its program. These skills will stay with pupils and enlighten their entire academic tenure. Finally, my role is also about offering guidance to students in terms of their current issues, academic future and potential career paths. My educational system is a result of years of lessons I myself learned progressing through the academic arena all the way to university level. In addition, it encompasses all the research I have conducted in self-improvement, effective study skills and successful leadership. These methods have been tested and proven successful. I hope to impart this knowledge to the next generation and watch them do great things with it. Yours sincerely, Ash
