    Mandarin conversation, voabulary and grammar practice

    I am a fluent mandarin speaker so this class has the aim to practice conversation and also help with grammar and vocabulary in the process. This class can also be tailored towards helping with homework and tutoring that the student might need help with. My goal is to help the student gain confidence and practice their language abilities so they can take their skills outside of the class.

    About Me

    Hello, my name is Ruby. I am from the United States, but I am currently teaching English at a k-8 school in Madrid, Spain. I began learning languages from a young age and went to a bilingual school where I learned Mandarin. Then in high school and college I continued my Chinese studies while also picking up Spanish. I graduated college from Lewis and Clark college with a major in World Languages and a minor in Political Economy. Learning languages has given me so many amazing opportunities to interact and learn about different people and cultures and I love sharing my passion for language with others. If I had to describe myself in three words I would describe myself as kind, open and funny which I think is reflected in my teaching style. I really want to give my students a safe place to learn, take chances, make mistakes and gain confidence in their language abilities.

    Education

    Graduated from Lewis and Clark College in May of 2019 with BA of Arts and Science. I majored in World Languages and minored in International Political Economy. Cummulative GPA of 3.47.

    Experience / Qualifications

    English Assistant at el Colegio Sagrado Corazon de Jesus (Sept 2019 to present)
    English Assistant for summer course at Lewis and Clark College (Summer 2018)
    Private language tutor (from 2013- present)
    Summer camp counselor/ teacher (2012-2017)
    I am an English tutor, especially geared towards students learning English as a second language. I have experience teaching at a school in Spain with a wide range of students from 1st grade to high school. And also have experience teaching in the United States teaching university students English during a summer course. This class will include vocabulary, grammar, and conversation practice for students. I will prepare subjects to go over, but also am more than happy to tailor classes to specific subjects or topics the student interested in. I want to make sure my students are equipt with the fundamental building blocks of the language to be able to both understand and communicate. Most importantly, I want to do it in a way such that they are engaged in learning and also given chances to practice and gain confidence to take their skills outside of the lesson and into real life situations; this is done through fun interactive activities and conversation, and not just grammar focus. My classes will try to achieve complete immersion in English, but for students who are absolute beginners I am also to explain in their native language if needed; I can also speak Chinese and Spanish.

    Learn Chinese language and culture (all levels)
    "It's Chinese"!? Maybe, but he is very mysterious and logical. With me, you will learn how this logic works, and you will also discover, the beauty of its originality. I give tutoring since 2010 and my students are all ages. (they are teenagers, adults, or retired) My classes are written and spoken, and I hope to be able to talk to you in Chinese. The goal is of course to be able to speak it. I base my texts on dialogues, stories, great moments of China, but also poems, songs, culture, etc. I personalize all my documents, so the level adapts to the interest of all. I have also created a "WhatsApp" group to make day-to-day learning easier, as it is important to keep it entertaining. I am really passionate about my work, and will be happy to teach you my native language.

    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.

    Private Maths Lessons - Limoges or Online - Qualified and Experienced Mathematics Teacher
    I am a young, qualified and experienced mathematics tutor. While each child encounters unique learning difficulties, the ever increasing number of students per class is forcing teachers to standardize their teaching method. Faced with this observation, I decided to specialize in individual tutoring in order to guide each student on the path to success. I give my private lessons in Limoges (at the student's home) or remotely (by internet). My distance learning courses take place on an interactive whiteboard. This educational tool considerably improves the student / teacher interaction. The student only needs a computer, a tablet, or a smartphone to use it. The first session is devoted to an in-depth assessment of his knowledge in mathematics. The goal is to identify its weak points and understand their origin. I then adapt the content of my courses to their specific needs. I make it a tailor-made remediation program aimed at gradually filling each of its shortcomings. At the same time, I support the student in learning new subjects by making sure that he masters the mathematical notions necessary for the validation of his school year. I also do substantive work teaching the most effective learning methods. Finally, thanks to modern means of communication, the pupil benefits from emergency assistance accessible remotely 7 days a week (help with homework, explanation the day before an assessment, etc.).
