English for High School; Tutoring exams' preparation

It is rather difficult to urge 14-16 y. o. children to be interested in studying a foreign language, moreover at school. It seems too dull. However, each good teacher has his/hers own secrets how to turn learning, say, grammar into fun.
I specialise in tutoring English for High School. So, we also have to be a bit serious. We can prepare for the exam by reading interesting stories, watching anime films and talking on everyday themes and topics. I assign homework after every lesson and provide periodic progress reports. Step by step English becomes a part of your life and you realise that in contemporary world you can't survive without the knowledge of English.

About Me

Looking at my age one may think that I am old. Do not look at the face -- look into the soul. I am a university lecturer and among various serious subjects (Like Academic Writing and Japanese History) I teach on Japanese manga and anime. Most of all I like philosophical films by Miyazaki Hayao, for example, Castle in the Sky (天鼓の城ラピュタ). Also I like movies about school life such as The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (時をかける少女) or Whisper of the Heart (耳をすませば). All anime we can watch in English and in this way you will grasp English communication.

Education

English Language Secondary School graduated with distinction; 英語の高等学校を栄誉で卒業した. University degree in Japanese and World History
大学でまず日本史 (Bachelor with Honours)を得て、
次にPhD (博士号)を習得しました。

Experience / Qualifications

Thirty years of teaching English as a Foreign Language; I taught English in Australia, England, Germany and now in Japan.
I am not a professional English teacher. However, I can teach you how to speak, read and communicate in English without mistakes and feel yourself COMFORTABLE in an English speaking world. Why do I know all these things? Because I myself covered the way from a girl brought up in a closed country called Russia, the country which reputation is not very good now. I graduated from an English language secondary school which was created with the purpose "to know the language of your enemy" and, of course, for official Russia that meant the US and England. So, teaching and learning English were taken very seriously there. I also studied English and Japanese at the university and obtained various academic degrees. I was often invited as an interpreter when delegations and single scholars visited the institute where I worked. In this way I became familiar with people around the world. When Russia became an open country, I applied for a job to teach Japanese History in Australia and was simultaniously offered a professor's position in Japan. Now I have been teaching at Japanese universities in English various subjects. I will be happy to share my experience with you.
Nowadays, everyone should know how to manage business and everyone needs to know English for this purpose. Do you know how to write business letters, to prepare for the interview or participate in negotiations? I can teach all these things and many other to you. I have TEFEL/TESOl Certificate, which
Nowadays many people want to do business by themselves. For this purpose the knowledge of English is a must. Do you know how to write an application letter, how to prepare for an interview and to paticipate in negotiations? To be successful it is not enough to know English, but you must know Business English which is something completely different. Just call me or write to me and I will teach you everything.

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!

Private online mathematics lessons - Qualified and experienced teacher
I am a qualified and experienced mathematics tutor. Graduated from the Free University of Brussels in 2011, I started my career by teaching remedial courses in different schools in Brussels. I then specialized in individual academic support by following educational training at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. I have been giving private mathematics lessons daily for over ten years. The students who follow my private lessons benefit from personalized support. The first session is devoted to an in-depth assessment of the student's mathematical knowledge. The objective is to detect its weak points and understand their origin in order to adapt my courses to its needs. I develop a tailor-made remediation program for each of my students aimed at filling each of their gaps. Over the course of the sessions, the student builds a solid foundation for learning and regains self-confidence. At the same time, I help him acquire a work methodology that allows him to gradually become autonomous in his studies. I have a perfect knowledge of the mathematics program of the College and the High School (from the Sixth to the Terminale). During my formative years, I studied and developed many techniques that make it easier to learn math. The strength of my pedagogical approach lies in my ability to explain in a simple way everything that the student finds complicated. I am passionate about this job because it gives me the opportunity to guide dropout students on the path to success. It is a real pleasure to see them evolve and come to terms with the fantastic world of mathematics. I provide my private lessons in Limoges (at the student's home) or remotely (online via the internet). My distance learning courses take place on an interactive online whiteboard. This board is specially designed to promote student/teacher interaction on the internet. Thanks to this educational tool, my online courses are as effective as home courses. The student only needs an internet connection and a computer, tablet, or smartphone to take advantage of it.

Korean classes for beginners and TOPIK I preparation
Hi, I have a master's degree in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language and a degree in East Asian Studies with a mention in Korea from the University of Malaga. I give Spanish and Korean classes, both for reinforcement for EAO students and for those who want to start studying. Both in person and online. In the classes I work above all with a communicative and grammatical approach in a dynamic and fun way. I have lived for more than two years in Korea. My first contact with Korea was in 2017 after doing a summer course at Sungkyunkwan University and then I went as an exchange student at the University of Seoul and Kyungpook National University (2021-22), in the latter I did the language program Korean from TOPIK level 3 to 5 (B1-C1) I am also accredited by the Instituto Cervantes as a DELE examiner for levels A1-A2-B1-B2, School A1+A2/B1. I have taught Korean for several years and taught Spanish at the University of Seoul and at an academy in Osaka. I currently work as a tenured professor in a school accredited by the Instituto Cervantes. In the case of online classes, all the material will be provided to you by email or Google Classroom. Personalized tracking. Get feedback and solve all your doubts at any time (I guarantee a response in less than 24 hours). If you want to follow a specific book, don't hesitate to tell me. Do not hesitate to contact me!

Non-academic Latin lessons. Multilingual teacher with 9 years of experience. Pronunciation, historical linguistics, conceptual semantics.
Contrary to popular belief, learning Latin is not like learning the phone book by heart. I offer you Latin lessons that are unlike any other. There are two types of courses. Here is an analogy to illustrate their respective approaches: If you take the train back and forth every day and don't have time to wait long at the platform, imagine that you only have two options: 1) Learn the schedules by heart. 2) Note that the train arrives every ten minutes and that a train arrives for example at 7:00 a.m. In school pedagogy, in study notebooks and in ordinary courses, it is the first approach which is adopted - in the courses that I offer you, it is the second because it is more economical and faster. My offer is aimed at both students and adults who want to learn the Latin language or deepen their knowledge without time-consuming detours through the insanities of school methods which do not produce results. Learning is easy but unlearning what has become a bad habit is extremely difficult. All the more important it is to learn the right reflexes as early as possible. With my tailor-made teaching you will accelerate your learning in a positive state of mind. I offer individual or group Latin lessons (2 to 5 people). The methods are based on cognitive sciences and in particular historical linguistics. What will not be the subject of the course: learn lists of verbs; learn lists of nouns with their gender; learn words with their translations; memory card game; doing school exercises; follow the program in a notebook; impose French grammar on the Latin language. What matters to me in particular: motivate my student and give him a learning rhythm; encourage creativity; make friends with language; letters and their sounds strengthen your memory by working on the phonological loop; teach construction plans instead of having people learn sentences by heart; explain how the language works to make my student independent as quickly as possible; breaking preconceived ideas such as the gammatical gender would have a link with the biological gender, the accusative would be a direct complement and the dative an indirect complement, the verbs would be irregular, the declension would be random and therefore to be learned with each verb... ; place practice at the center and articulate grammar around practice. In the context of a first course, you can get a well-founded idea of my pedagogy. I look forward to meeting you.
