Learn and get help with English language speaking and writing, Biology, Neuroscience and Psychology.

As a scientist and researcher, I have experience teaching various subjects in science to high-school and university students. I have also worked as an English language tutor for over 5 years and love being able to help people to better use the language (whether for communication or for writing for school and work).

Being able to be comfortable with the English language is a huge advantage not only for everyday communication but also to be able to communicate professionally. I especially specialize in the use of the English language for presentation and writing in the sciences and social sciences. I adapt my classes to each of my students - depending on their needs and goals. So whether you need help with conversational English or with your essays, scientific articles, theses, or dissertations - I can provide a specialized plan for you, and will do so taking into your field of study. Additionally, I can help you proofread and edit any writing you have.

I am also a neuroscientist by training and can provide classes and help with your courses in Psychology, Biology, or Neuroscience. Additionally, I also tutor for Mathematics, Physics, and Engineering Sciences for high school and university students (in both English and French). My teaching philosophy for these is still the same- I adapt and prepare every class to each individual student's goals and needs.

About Me

I am a research scientist who loves teaching and have always made it a big part of my life- as a student and in my career.

Jhen: a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, currently undertaking a second post-doctoral fellowship at INSERM in France. I have taught university-level courses on neuroscience, biology, psychology, and statistics. I also have an equivalent amount of experience teaching English to second language speakers (focusing especially on conversational aspects) and as a writing tutor where I helped university students and professionals with their writing on various subjects from the sciences, social sciences, humanities, fine arts, and engineering.

I can help you write and improve any aspect of writing you may have- essays, lab reports, presentations, theses, dissertation and also help you prepare for tests. I understand how important it is to suit the style of writing to the topic at hand and understand the differences between writing for English, social sciences, and sciences.
I also provide classes on English writing, neuroscience, and psychology.

I can provide one-one or group tutoring and take the utmost care to provide classes and help that best suit each individual student, taking into account their specific needs and their specific areas of help.

private tutoring english speaking conversation
Former English bilingual speaker at the City of Paris, I want to help students to be more comfortable speaking during conversations on current or cultural topics. I note in writing - correction sheet - vocabulary, grammar rules to study or review, at the end of the course the vocabulary and grammar rules are recalled. The correction sheet is given to the student and reviewed in the next class.

PT - Oi, sou Lucie e será um prazer te ajudar a aprender inglês, que seje do zêro or para melhorar o seu conhecimento. Eu amo botar os meus estudantes pra falar porque eu acho que a prática é o segredo para aprender um idioma e melhorar o seu conhecimento. Eu semper dou aulas inspiradas em temas do cotidiano (como se apresentar, como marcar uma consulta, fazer compras, ir no medico, inglês profissional, etc.). Veremos a grámatica, vocabulário, ea pronunciação juntos. Se você é intermediário, faremos aulas com leituras, artigos para você pratar e aprender mais. E posso dar aula em português, você quiser. EN - Hi, I'm Lucie and I would be glad to help you learn English, be it from scratch or to help you improve. I love to make my students speak since I strongly believe that practice is the key to learn a language and to improve your knowledge. I always structure my lessons according to subjects based on daily life situations (how to introduce yourself, how to make an appointment, shopping / grocery, going to the doctors, professional language, etc). We'll go through the grammar, vocab, and pronunciation. If you're intermediate, we'll also do some lessons about reading comprehensions. We'll put both the grammar and vocab in practice. And hey, I can teach in Portuguese if you want!

ENGLISH and GERMAN LESSONS FOR CHILDREN/ TEENS/ ADULTS BEGINNERS TO ADVANCED
Hello everyone and welcome to my English and or German lessons taught in group. I organise English and German lessons for children and teenagers and separately adult English group lessons (beginners to advanced). For children and teenagers, interactive activities are used as a way to motivate them, help them remember what they have learned in class and make sure they will be able to apply their language skills in real life context. For the adults lessons, depending on what the students are willing to learn, we can have discussions based on the news, some grammar, writing... I am open to any suggestions, just tell me your needs and I am going to adapt the next lessons for you. If you wish to invite your friends and make a group with them, just let me know and I will allocate you a time slot. For private English lessons, please have a look at my other advertisements. The German lessons are usually for beginners/ intermediate (exceptionally advanced levels in German can be organised only if there is a high-demand). Don't hesitate to contact me should you have further questions. It would be a huge pleasure to integrate you in one of my classes. :-)

💬 Would you like to improve your conversational skills? 🗣 I am a Trinity and Cambridge exams specialist 🗣
Please bare in mind that my availability varies according to the slots reserved by the students. I started my career as an English language teacher in 2008 and quickly became very passionate about language learning. This culminated in a Masters degree in second language acquisition and a Certificate in teaching English to adults. ​ Before starting teaching online, I worked as a Spanish teacher as well as a Director of Studies for different summer schools in the UK. ​ During my teaching career, I have lived in Spain, United Kingdom and China. These have always been great experiences as they have helped me to explore my other passions of travelling and learning new languages. ​Are you looking for a qualified English teacher (British accent) with extensive teaching and business experience? If so, I would love to help you! While my classes are 100% in English, I can also speak Spanish and some Italian words. This gives me a real insight as to why students make certain mistakes, and how to best avoid them. I really enjoy teaching and helping people improve and grow in confidence. We all learn at different paces and in different ways. My job is to give you the tools to learn and enjoy the process. Are you ready?

Charlie
English lessons / All levels: beginner and advanced
At the age of 16 I did a school exchange with Lincoln Park High School of Chicago. I loved learning in English and getting to know a world so different from mine. While I was in an elite Parisian high school, I chose to specialize in English literature at the baccalaureate, for which I obtained a mark of 19/20. Recently, I passed my TOEFL and obtained the C1 level. Very rigorous in French grammar I am also rigorous when it comes to English. Don't worry, I will never be there to judge you but only to help you progress. It is a pleasure for me to speak English and I am sure you will feel it.

English Language , Mathematics and Physics for students and adults from age of 4 to 65+ years.
English Language is one of the leading international language in the world . It is needed when communicating with the rest of the world as it is an important tool in a team work outside of France. I will also be teaching mathematics and Physics but it will be taught in ENGLISH LANGUAGE. I have designed the courses in a step by step curriculum that will bring the best out of my students. You will learn how to be fluent in English language (spoken , listening and writing) and also be a champion in mathematics and physics.

Fiona
English French or Philosophy for middle and high school students
Languages are a means of communication, so it is essential to master them! Thus, relying on a starting lesson, accompanied by explanations and while remaining attentive to misunderstandings and questions, I continue the course on adapted exercises. The student is accompanied and will master all the skills implemented. As far as philosophy courses are concerned, it is mainly an explanation based on the main principles and relying on the authors who may be concerned. Texts will complete the session. Summary sheets for all the courses are then produced with the student with a view to encouraging their learning and developing their methods of revision and organization.

Adrien
Engineer in applied mathematics gives mathematics lessons
I offer private lessons in mathematics from college to higher education to students in difficulty, to those who need simple support, and to students wishing to prepare for an exam. I organize my course by adapting to the level and the desire of the student in order to best meet his needs. Passionate about mathematics, my goal is to manage to transmit this passion by using sometimes playful or schematic methods. Beyond the help given by the courses, the goal is that the student acquires a process of resolution and a method of work which will be useful to him throughout his course. I appreciate and I want to see the progress of the student through his notes, his reasoning and his organization. I also give Physics / Chemistry lessons from college to high school, and offer intensive internships in all scientific subjects in order to prepare for the Baccalaureate exam. Located in the town of Kremlin-Bicêtre, I can travel in and around Paris to give lessons at the student's home. I also offer video lessons for students from high school (preferring to focus on face-to-face lessons for middle school students).

Inass
French literature - physics chemistry - French language - Arabic language - English language
The Arabic language is an ocean whose waves are rich with an unparalleled vocabulary. Thanks to the course I am offering you, you will have the opportunity to learn this very rich language as well as to discover the history of the Arab world on a cultural, historical and artistic level. We will see together how to formulate words, sentences to finally get interested in how to communicate in Arabic. Having a TOEFL diploma, I also offer courses in English. Being passionate about the French language, I also offer courses in this language as well as a discovery of French literature.
