    I'm passionate about history, social science, and generally in understanding the human condition.

    Do you lack the confidence to speak English with native speakers? Are you looking to improve your dictions or accent? I'm here to help you. My class is informal and seeks to be a space where you're comfortable to make mistakes and ask questions. I want to help you speak English with confidence and give you tips and tricks on how to realistically learn the language without being bogged down in grammar and other rules.
    Before I moved to old Blighty, I lived in Norway for over twenty years. I speak and write fluent Norwegian (bokmål) as well as English. Over the years I've done translation work for family and friends, and I'm now ready to bring my skills to a wider audience.

    history, geography, archaeology, art history.
    History is the vector that allows us to better understand our society, the world in which we live. It is essential for general culture. The level of the course will adapt to the level of the student, from primary to university. It is also possible to adapt it in relation to an exam or competition to be taken, or to a person wishing to complete their general knowledge on a particular subject.

    Private History and other Humanities subjects Tuition.
    Within these tutoring sessions, I offer students a chance to go over any topics they are struggling with and help build a strong base within the subjects of Humanities. Using the material the students brings, tutoring will be tailored towards the key areas selected by the student and highlighted in sessions. Note-taking skills and exam preparation will also be covered if needed. *Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, all sessions will be online until further notice.

    Généalogie familiale et recherches ciblées - Construire son arbre généalogique
    Vous désirez en connaitre un peu plus sur votre histoire familiale, toutefois, vous ne savez pas par ou commencer? Votre grande-tante (ou votre grand-pere peut-etre) vous a fourni des informations sur ce fameux ancetre noble dont la famille descendrait et vous aimeriez en savoir un peu plus sur cet illustre personnage dont on vous a parlé pour confirmer ces dires? Ou alors, vous n’avez simplement aucune information fiable sur vos ancetres au-delà de vos grands parents et cela vous intéresserait de pouvoir nommer vos arrières-grands-parents, découvrir où ils habitaient, quels métiers ils exercaient, ou encore peut etre connaitre leurs hobbys favoris (on peut en effet découvrir énormement d’informations sur nos ancetres grace à des recherches un peu plus poussées). Il se peut également, que vous vous trouviez face à une impasse dans vos recherches et que vous apprécieriez l’aide d’une personne extérieure: quand on est très impliqué dans sa généalogie, il est parfois utile d’avoir un intervenant neutre qui nous aide avec le recul nécessaire pour y voir plus clair et débloquer une situation compliquée. Dans ce cours, je vous propose une immersion dans votre histoire familiale qui vous permettra de mieux connaitre vos ancetres, mais aussi mieux vous connaitre vous-meme.“ Lorsque tu ne sais pas où tu vas, regarde d'où tu viens” (Proverbe Africain). Lors de nos rencontres, nous travaillerons sur les étapes necessaires et essentielles pour découvrir vos racines familiales et créer, petit à petit, un arbre généalogique passionnant et fascinant que vous serez fier/fière de prséenter à votre famille et entourage! Voilà plus de 25 ans que je me suis intéressé pour la premiere fois à l’histoire de ma famille, car j’avais entendu (comme c’est souvent le cas) une anecdote un peu “fantastique” autour d’un fameux ancetre! Mandaté par un proche, j’ai eu pour projet de vérifier cette information. Et c’est ainsi qu’est née ma passion pour cette discipline que j’exerce au quotidien personnellement, ou alors pour aider des clients à mieux organiser leurs recherches et aller de surprises en surprises! C'est lors du confinement de 2020 que j’ai entrepris une formation diplomante en généalogie. D'origines Irlande-USA-Canada et Suisse, mes deux langues principales de travail sont l'anglais et le francais. Je vous propose également mes services si vous désirez me confier la création et la présentation de votre arbre familial. N’hésitez pas à m’en faire part lors de notre premier contact!

    Ask me about Jamaica! Are you curious to learn more about Jamaica- to go beyond Reggae and Jerk? Its history, people, politics and culture?
    Ever wondered about life in Jamaica beyond the lights of Kingston’s allure? This class offers an ethnographic journey of practises and cultures in rural Jamaica, illustrated through photos, songs and videos. Let's explore life in rural Jamaica! Born and raised in a remote rural district/village, I will take you on an authentic journey of first hand experiences- reliving fond childhood memories, the stories my grandmother told me and what a typical day is like. This will be grounded in the history and culture of Jamaica. Coming from a background in diplomacy, sharing about Jamaica's culture and historical experiences has always been essential for opening the door to a deeper unerstanding. I have an avid interest in other cultures and always take the time to explore wherever I go. Having been to South and Central America, Asia, North America and Europe, I know the unique value of such rich experiences. Whenever I was home-sick while posted abroad, talking about my homeland was the only cure. I will share with you all there is about living in rural Jamaica, from different perspectives of my childhood, teenage years and adult life. One unique bit is that the district's enduring small farms form the centrepiece around which everything revolves. Come prepared with a curious mind, and if you want to make notes take your pen and paper or do so on your devices. It is important for me that your are learning, so I encourage you to ask questions. Let's go beyond Kington's enigma!

    Exciting History Lessons For All Ages and Abilities!
    Studying and understanding the past is incredibly important for making sense of the present and future. The course and lessons can be tailor made to the history you want to learn or I can put together a course touching on multiple topics chosen by me. This can include Ancient, Medieval or Modern History from around the world. My Bachelors degree is in History of Art, so I can provide lessons on this as well. My Masters degree was in History and Culture with a focus on Black British History in 60s-80s Britain. If you want to understand more about this rich history that is not included in the school curriculum, please book on today. This will focus on how minority groups resisted the racism and poor treatment they received. I am also a newly qualified History Teacher at secondary level, up to KS5, which means I understand the national curriculum and can contextualise the exam syllabus in order to maximise student outcomes and progress. I understand that different tasks and approaches work for different types of students, meaning I strive to adapt lessons and alter my teaching style accordingly. I am committed to creating a positive and relaxed environment where the tutee feels comfortable and engaged in the lesson. Hopefully my classes will help you ignite your love for history and uncover new found interests! Please do not hesitate to contact me for further information and queries.

    Understand THE ELECTRIC MOTOR - Probably THE ONLY TEACHER Who REALLY GIVES YOU THE REAL UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT REALLY IS HAPPENING !
    EXPERIENCED TEACHER - I BEGAN TEACHING OVER 35 YEARS AGO ! HOME - SCHOOL - UNIVERSITY - BUSINESS ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Most teachers find the Electric Motor difficult to teach - I used to be like this. Now, I never need to revise much of it again ! Using a different far MORE ACCURATE WAY TO TEACH it, I will show you how to never forget it and to understand the real processes happening in it ! To do this, 1 - I dismiss the Conventional Current ; I will show you by the REAL CURRENT so no more confusion for you ! 2 - I will show you what everyone is scared to explain - the SPLIT RING COMMUTATOR functions - including how MOMENTUM SWINGS the magnetic wire loop at 90* to the parallel magnetic bar poles ! Can you find any other teacher who will show this to you ? 3 - I will show you step by step WHY and HOW the loop moves ! 4 - THEN, later as a bonus, I WILL make ANOTHER COMPLEX CONCEPT very EASY by using the same model I gave you to show you what exactly is AC / DC , alternating current and how it is made the easy ways ! Nota Bene Before I had this method, I was like most teachers finding it difficult. The number 1 reason why my teaching makes things so very easy is because the Lord Jesus Christ gives me all this wonderful insight, so that I CONFIDENTLY AM ABLE TO MAKE MANY STUDENTS - OF EVEN LOW GRADES - AIM JUST FOR TOP GRADES - from the 1st day of tuition - if they wholly follow my methodology properly ! Testimony --------- 92% Mathematics - By A Girl NOT In Top Sets - ca 7 Lessons ONLY !

    English (all levels) History (GCSE), Guitar (Beginners)
    Since 2011, I have worked with all ages from primary children through to adults. The settings have included colleges, schools, community centres and clients' homes. My practice has also varied from one-to-one support to teaching small and large groups. I love having variation in my work, hence teaching several different subjects. Details of my experience include ENGLISH LANGUAGE / LITERATURE - I studied English as my major at university and then specialised in this for my PGCE. I since then taught from curricula including KS1-KS3, GCSE, A-Level, Undergraduate, Functional Skills and SEN. HISTORY - I studied History as my minor at university. I have since then taught privately at GCSE. EFL - I have tutored for ESOL and EFL in colleges, summer schools and privately. Levels have ranged from Beginner to Advanced levels. This has ranged between children and adults. GUITAR - I have given guitar lessons to beginners of various ages in both groups and one-to-one.

    Student gives private lessons (various courses offered)
    I offer three types of courses to choose from, so you can choose one course or choose two or all three. For English lessons: The objective is to improve your level of English on all points (grammar, conjugation, vocabulary...). The courses can focus on a specific area or on various and varied areas. The learning will be done by classic exercises (school types) but also by activities allowing a more interactive learning. For pupils or students, it will also be a question of reworking the exercises seen in class, revising for exams or controls but also working on the weak points. For science courses: The objective is to rework the different chapters seen in class, rework the science practicals as much as possible, prepare for exams or even prepare before the different start of the school year. By science we must here understand SVT, Chemistry mainly but also Physics and Mathematics. It is also a question of proposing different learning techniques in order to allow a better understanding of these subjects. For history lessons: The objective remains essentially the same as for science lessons. Indeed I propose to rework the different elements seen in class but also to prepare for the start of the school year and exams. I could work with the books provided by the school as support, but I would also work on books that I would bring back myself in order to avoid any additional costs. I am able to provide history lessons on all eras that can be addressed in class.
