Private Estonian tutoring for levels Beginner and Intermediate

MY LESSONS:

Learning Estonian can be quite hard on your own or in a group. As a native speaker I can help you become fluent in Estonian by practicing conversation, writing, grammar or any other subject you would like, by taking an individual approach. Usually I work with maximum 2 students at once, so couples, friends and family members are welcome to have the lesson together. Currently, I offer private lessons to levels Beginner and Intermediate using English as a base language.

BENEFITS IF YOU’LL BE LEARNING WITH ME:

- Anxiety and perfection free space - mistakes are welcome :)
- Learning is more fun since there is no grading
- The study materials are provided for you
- Rescheduling classes is free of charge
- Faster progress than in a classroom
- You choose the time and the place
- Choosing your own learning style
- Choosing your own pace
- One-on-one attention
- Flexibility in learning
- Pay as you learn

WHAT IS REQUIRED FOR THE LESSONS?

- Not living too far from my location for lessons at home
- Having a printer if you would like to learn on paper
- Having a good Wi-Fi connection for online classes
- Having a laptop with a camera for online classes
- Having at least an intermediate level in English

Kas alustame? Shall we start?

Extra information

The first class usually consists of mapping out your needs and goals and testing your language level. Usually I work on the laptop with the students, but if you wish to work with paper, then that’s fine as well. For more details feel free to contact me.

About Me

My name is Kristel, I am 27 years old, I live in Tallinn and I am a native Estonian speaker. I usually teach Estonian to foreigners, who want to stay in Estonia for a longer period of time. I enjoy language tutoring because I can contribute to a person's language growth and confidence in speaking. In general, I like to help people because I believe that I have some valuable Estonian insights to offer. I like to study languages myself and at the moment I am studying Spanish in my free time to master my existing skills. By studying Spanish I am in a position of a student as well, so I understand the difficulties of learning a foreign language. If you feel like you would like to start learning Estonian, then I'd love to be your tutor.

Private French lessons for adults and teenagers with native French speaker in Co. Mayo
For the past two decades, I've had the privilege of tutoring in both French and English. My students have ranged in age, background, and origin, spanning children, teenagers, adults, professionals, and even seniors aged 85 and above. You might wonder why I teach both languages. Well, I am bilingual, with American and Swiss/French roots, and I currently reside in Ireland. This unique blend of experiences equips me with a strong and relevant teaching approach. I possess an intimate understanding of both cultures, enabling me to tailor my classes to the specific needs of my students. My teaching journey began during my time studying social work in French-speaking Switzerland. I started offering private French and English lessons to supplement my income, and I quickly discovered my passion for it. Even after graduating and embarking on a full-time career, I couldn't bear to give up this rewarding activity. I cherished the opportunity to connect with diverse individuals and assist them in achieving their language goals. In my teaching methodology, interactivity takes center stage. I employ a variety of engaging learning tools, including photos, newspaper articles, music, videos, and more. My approach is highly adaptable, with a focus on addressing each student's unique priorities. Some seek to refine their pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary, while others require assistance with presentations or speeches for school or work. Some simply aspire to acquire a new language to enrich their general knowledge. I also specialize in teaching younger children, a testament to my educational background and experience. What you will gain from my courses extends beyond impeccable pronunciation and enhanced vocabulary and grammar. You'll also acquire a profound understanding of the culture associated with each language. When speaking a language, it's essential to appreciate the lifestyle, traditions, and heritage of the nations where it thrives. French and English are spoken as primary languages in numerous countries worldwide, each with its own unique accent and cultural nuances. The learning process is limitless! In addition to my language instruction, I'm a genealogist and host spiritual (non-religious) seminars in the beautiful West of Ireland. My passion for vegetarian and vegan cuisine adds a flavorful dimension to my life. Furthermore, I hold a degree in Early Childhood Education and have operated a private "Before & Afterschool" facility along with Summer Camps catering to children aged 4 to 12 for many years. I am genuinely excited about the prospect of meeting and working with you!

Italian language lessons from a native speaker - any level
Hello everyone! I'm Giorgia and I come from Torino, Italy. I offer my native knowledge of Italian to any of you, who wants to discover this beautiful language. I teach for all levels, from very beginners to advanced speakers, passing through amateurs or simply curious of any age. I can also help with university exams and school works/assignments. Being a pianist and a piano teacher, I already have lots of experience with teaching and pedagogical approach with the whole range of ages. The lesson is intended to meet the student needs: the focus can be on the grammar, conversation or literature. In case of a middle-level speaker, the lesson will cover all four language's abilities: listening, speaking, writing and reading. My suggestion of a well planned lesson is, for any level, to divide it into two parts: grammar first and then conversation (covering all the abilities mentioned above). Thank you for your attention and looking forward to meeting you !!

Effective Public Speaking - How to get up in front of any audience
This course is designed for students and participants of all backgrounds to vastly improve their public speaking abilities and confidence in communication. Rather than focusing on standardized methods, this course focuses on the individual speaker's needs and is tailored directly toward those areas that are assets as well as to improve on any weakness. The most important characteristic to improve is confidence, no matter how a particular speech goes. It's a process that turns fear into a challenge and then a challenge into fun. Public speaking is a very personal experience in a public setting. Each person is different and finding the approaches, methods, and styles that work for that particular person will help them to realize that not only can they do something most people hate, they may actually start enjoying it.

This training allows you to learn about the concepts of emotional intelligence & empathy with the aim of better recognizing and understanding your own emotions and those of others. Being aware of emotions allows better management of behavior in human relationships, both in the professional, private, entrepreneurial framework (...).

This training combines group activities, individual reflections, videos and scenarios. From theory to practice with simulations. It is a question of putting in place rational and professional tools to achieve the objectives set together and overcome the blockages initially defined. Controlled, the techniques allow: • to rely on emotional intelligence and capitalize on the empathy communicated to better ensure that his message is better received his message or being. • improve credibility, self-confidence and ease (verbal-bodily) with public speaking and a more fluid sense of repartee. • defuse conflicts and enter your comfort / safety zone. In particular simple and logical techniques, which make it possible to resolve and manage violent situations in a harmonious, effective and lasting way, for example through NVC (Non Violent Communication). • better manage negotiation situations (contrary to the stereotypes conveyed, negotiation is not only financial, but it can be small everyday events). • Match the content and form of your message while improving the use of your emotional intelligence. What you will get out of it: • Better control of emotions and therefore of your way of communicating • Better understanding of the feelings of others and the ability to lead them successfully • Better relationships in personal and professional life thanks to superior emotional intelligence • Less stress thanks to a better understanding of one's emotions and those of others • Greater determination and results-oriented mindset • Ways to develop and apply emotional intelligence in the workplace Statistically, the progression following these private sessions is quickly noticeable, from 2 or 3 sessions *.
