    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.

    I completed a Ph.D. in Neuroscience in 2019, and am 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.

    English lessons (online) - English lessons (online)
    Hello, my name is Lucie and I would be delighted to help you learn English, either from scratch or to improve your knowledge. I love getting my students to speak since I think practice is the secret to learning a language and improving your knowledge. I always structure my classes around real-life themes (how to introduce yourself, how to make an appointment, how to shop, how to go to the doctor, talk at work, etc). We will see grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation together. If you are intermediate, we will also do courses on texts. We will put both grammar and vocabulary into practice. Please note that all my classes are online (Skype or Google Meet).

    Reinforcement courses and tutoring for students of all levels from primary to high school
    I am a 19-year-old student who had my scientific baccalaureate with honors. I then joined an engineering school before enrolling in a double degree in mathematics and computer science. I already have more than a year of experience in providing home tuition in several areas. My last tutored student being in 2nd at the CNED in addition to taking face-to-face courses in another school trained him in management and computer science. I accompanied him in all of these subjects and gave him the best tools so as not to be overwhelmed by the workload. I would therefore be an asset for the help and accompaniment of your children. Contact me to set a schedule!

    English Tutoring for Children and Teenagers - Beg-Adv
    Hello! I have been teaching English for five years, to adults and children alike. I offer classes that are uniquely adapted to the students needs and their interests. My aim is to build my student's confidence, by following their line of inquiry — engaging in a rich, and increasingly challenging dialogue with the individual. My classes are for children and teenagers, who want to: . Develop and widen their vocabulary; . Need help preparing for an exam, a paper or an important interview; . Gain confidence in spoken English; . Attain a fluent level of spoken and written English We will begin by identifying the student's greatest interests — those subjects they are most curious about and topics that stimulate them. These topics will be "stimulators", fueling conversations and language activities that the student themselves will eventually lead. Then, we will identify the student's biggest worries regarding the English language — where they are confused, or tend to make mistakes. This will form the workshop part of the lesson, focused on overcoming tricky grammatical mistakes and revising more complex linguistic and phonetic errors. I also offer the possibility of following a Cambridge exam oriented syllabus, such as Family and Friends, Cambridge Starters, Movers, Flyers, or B1, B2. After 8 years of teaching I have found this tailored approach to be, by far, the most effective. I look forward to collaborating with you soon!

    Dear learners, I am French, I master the language as it is my native language and I studied French literature as well as English literature, a language I speak too. I studied in England for nine months and could teach you the language the way I’ve learned it: happily and without much difficulty. I would be pleased to teach young students but also adults, wether you are a beginner or intermediate. Contact me :) Chers apprentis, Je suis française et maîtrise la langue, comme il s’agit de ma langue maternelle, j’ai étudié la littérature française et anglaise, langue que je parle également. J’ai étudié en Angleterre pour une durée de neuf mois et pourrais ainsi vous apprendre la langue comme je l’ai apprise : gaiement et sans grande difficulté. Je serais ravie d’enseigner à des jeunes étudiants mais aussi à des adultes, que vous soyez débutant ou intermédiaire. Contactez-moi :)

    - English, Russian and Turkish language lessons for children, students and adults
    Learning a new language involves listening, speaking, reading, writing, sometimes even a new alphabet and writing format. Besides having more chances of landing a good job or advancing in your career, learning a second language can also give you an insight into other cultures. You will be more prepared and confident to travel the world and explore other people's ways of living. You will learn how to make sentences, make a dialog and speak with native speakers.

    As far as possible I always try to adapt my methodology to the specific needs of the students with whom I have the chance to work. In this sense, I will attach great importance to the first contact and to the various exchanges of information that precede the course session itself. We can thus clearly identify the level and the different objectives that you have set for yourself in the subject concerned. For your comfort, I can base myself on the notions presented in your course materials and make sure to integrate my professional experience in order to unblock the situation through an appropriate pedagogical approach. (Population of abstract concepts, illustration of the subject concerned with concrete examples, interpretation of results, etc...). I can also explain to you the synthesis of the theoretical notions underlying the initial problem, before accompanying you on a series of applications intended to facilitate understanding. (Exercises + Corrections). Throughout the session, I promote and maintain constant interaction with my students, so as to avoid switching to an ex-cathedra course that is ill-suited to students in difficulty. I also take advantage of the particular context to ensure that we can break free from the teacher/student barrier which sometimes pushes some students to show restraint with regard to the expression of the questions they may ask... Know that I am at your disposal to try to answer them by sharing with you my passion for the subjects concerned. Looking forward to accompanying you soon. Thibault Target audience : Scientific Secondary, Technical Secondary, Bachelor, Other... Field of activity: Maths, Physics, Engineering Sciences, Industrial Sciences. Subjects taught at undergraduate level: Thermodynamics, Mechanics of fluids, Heat transfers, Electrical engineering, Logic and automation, Renewable energies, Sizing of heating and domestic hot water installations, Air conditioning and Refrigeration techniques... -------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------
