    History, French lessons and Test Prep/Essay writing tutoring, by a postgraduate student at ENS in Paris and at Cambridge University

    As a skilled researcher with competence over all periods of History, as well as a native speaker of French with academic writing proficiency, I am very keen to being able to help, support and accompany students towards their academic success. I specialize in teaching History and French at any level, as well as tutoring to strengthen the student's working methods and accompany him/her in his/her orientation towards higher education.

    My teaching and tutoring classes not only reinforce the student's general and subject-related knowledge, but above all help him/her to develop and express his/her critical mind. To achieve this, my pedagogy is based on dialogue and listening, constantly targeting possible blockages and difficulties, and striving to strengthen the student’s self-confidence. In this respect, even though applied to the subject of History, the skills acquired in my class prove to be very beneficial, as they lead to progression in other subjects such as philosophy, geography, etc..., and in the framework of written and oral exams, especially for the entrance to higher education.

    For this summer, my classes in History focus on reinforcing what has been learned and what was missed out during the coronavirus crisis; on introducing and preparing to the following year's program and also on exploring other time periods; and finally on the preparation for exams or long term projects such as dissertation writing.

    Sessions of at least 2 hours are most beneficial, and I also offer sessions of 3 hours.

    Furthermore, my French classes are tailored around the needs of the student: they can focus on essay-writing training, on conversation in total immersion, and more. I find 1,5 hour-long classes to be most beneficial, as more would tire the student.

    About Me

    Student in History, I have graduated from my master's degree at the École normale supérieure (ENS) with First Class Honours, ending six years of higher education in Paris, and will be continuing with a second master's at the University of Cambridge in the fall. As a skilled researcher with competence over all periods of History, as well as a native speaker of French with academic writing proficiency, I am very keen to being able to help, support and accompany students towards their academic success. I specialize in teaching History for all audiences, French for the Anglophone public, as well as tutoring to strengthen the student's working methods (essay writing, exam preparation) and accompany him/her in his/her orientation towards French and/or Anglophone higher education.

    Education

    B.A. in History at La Sorbonne (2017), with Upper Second Class Honours ; M.A. in Transnational History at Ecole normale supérieure (ENS), one of the most prestigious and selective higher education institutions in France (2020), with First Class Honours ; Master of Philosophy (MPhil) in World History at the University of Cambridge (2021, upcoming)

    Experience / Qualifications

    My experience of tutoring : a total of six hours of intensive preparation for a high-school student’s mock exams in History. Himself a good student, but with weaknesses in his writing and a lack of confidence in his abilities - his earlier marks were around 55-60%.
    In two sessions, I was first able to clarify certain points of the program, and I helped him to focus on and identify the most relevant information, through discussion and exchange. We then worked on a method of learning and understanding the concepts, rather than simply memorizing them. And, finally, we worked together on practice tests, focusing point by point on the intricacies of essay writing – he then worked on his own, on different parts of the exam, under the same time conditions, writing as many notes as possible. We then reviewed both the content and the form, making my suggestions accordingly : his homework was to produce the whole in writing, which we reviewed together during the following session.
    In addition, I was available on the phone for last-minute queries. As a result, he obtained a First (70%), and was able to reuse the same methods he acquired in other subjects through my tutoring.

    Methodological support Help with homework Math and French level school and college
    TIPS FOR A MORE. Often children do not know how to do it. Methodology at school is not always explicitly detailed. It is necessary to have a punctual or regular support from a qualified person to overcome the difficulties encountered. Work at home is also very important because it prepares for autonomy but for that you have to learn to organize. It is therefore essential to be guided to successfully complete schooling. I am also able to make notional reminders if necessary. That's what I propose to myself. Cordially.
