Joshua is helping me read Great Expectations. He is very helpful. He is very punctual too.
Joshua is very knowledgeable and patient and has good control over how he allocates his time. Today I had my first lesson and he was very well prepared and organized. Joshua is competent, professional, and methodical. I am looking forward to learning more about English literature. Highly recommended!
This class is for anyone interested in the literature of Great Britain and the English speaking world, from beginners to advanced. The focus is to learn about, analyse and understand key works of English Literature. It is possible to focus on one period (such as Shakespearean, Modern, Medieval) or one area (such as Ireland, America, England). The class will use the works themselves, such as Dickens, Eliot, or Woolf, and will read and analyse in detail, with set essays and discussions. Even beginners are welcome.
This class is for anyone who wishes to practice or improve their English speaking, listening, reading and writing abilities. The class will focus on the practical, everyday use of English, with up-to-date, real-world material (such as recent news articles) and coursebooks. If preferred, the class can be strictly conversation. However, the usual process will involve one-to-one tasks, understanding vocabulary and grammar, and periodic progress reviews.
This class is for anyone writing creatively in the English language, whether in poems, fiction, or essays. The class will focus on drafting and redrafting, themes and devices, editing, composition, rhetoric and metre, among other topics. New and experienced writers are welcome, without regard to level of skill or experience.

Private lessons in philosophy: History of Western thought [ONLINE]
I have been a French teacher since 2012, specialist in the field of language sciences and French literature. I speak Arabic, French, Spanish, English and a little Turkish. I give courses in language, communication and philosophy (History of Western thought). I explain my classes in French, in Arabic or in Spanish, according to your choice. - During the session I explain the course that suits your needs. There is also the option to create an open discussion so that you can achieve what you need.

Justyna
University classes (psychology, philosophy, pedagogy, linguistics)
I graduated from the University of Athens where I attended courses in pedagogics, psychology, philosophy and linguistics. What can I teach? - I can prepare you for exams in pedagogics, psychology, philosophy, linguistics. - Psychology (developmental / school / clinical / social) - Philosophy (mainly ancient philosophy, e.g. Socrates, Plato, Aristotle) - Linguistics / phonology / grammar / syntax During my lessons I use : - Skype/Whatsapp/Messenger to connect with you, - Google Docs to keep notes, which you can check at any time and they are yours to keep, - sketch board me to make mind maps/diagrams to show connections between ideas, etc. I adore my profession and desire each and every one of my students be satisfied with the lesson. That's why I make sure the atmosphere is stress-free and nice. I also want my lessons to be as effective as possible. Therefore, I make sure they are well-prepared, although they can be altered at any point, should such an opportunity arise. I like explaining things in a variety of ways as well as make use of dictionaries, diagrams, etc. When it comes to students who want to obtain certificates, I am very demanding.

Xavier
REVIEW ESO AND BACHILLERATO (SOCIAL AND HUMANITIES). ENGLISH
BACHELOR REVIEW classes (Social, Humanities), English, Catalan, Philosophy, Literature, History ... AND THAT. More than 20 years giving individual and small group classes in English, Spanish and Catalan. Academies and online. My name is Xavier. I was born in Barcelona ... a long time ago. I grow up in this town, but now I live a bit far from here. I studied at the University of Barcelona and in Huddersfield (near Shefield, Halifax, Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool, ... not very far from York: quite nice places and better people), and I've been teaching Catalan, Spanish, Philosofy , History and English for a long time ... since I was 16. What happened? Very short, I promise: I was walking down the street two years ago, from just opposite this private school, and I thought myself: well, you might enter this place and see. I like English language very much ... and the UK, ... but I don't have a poster of the Queen on my bedroom's wall. It was a sort of a blind date. And there she was: her smile, her diligence, effectiveness. Eva listened to me. And after two weeks she was texting me for a class. "Please, Xavier, can you cover for some classes?" And here I am. (That was two years and a half ago, at the Academy English Studio where I have been an English teacher for more than two years, untill 13th March, when the lady in charge said literally that she would pass my 59 students to another teacher because I had no Internet at home, as I had recently moved to another town and had not had time to set the Internet, and nobody could have possibly known about that horrible and destructive confinement). More than 20 years teaching and learning with my students. Online classes. Spanish and Catalan teacher, too.

Nathan
Private lessons in history-geography, philosophy and methodology
The methodology of the Baccalaureate exercises are just as important as the course itself. Knowing his course is useless if the student does not know how to explain his thought and organize his thinking on a copy. It is necessary to learn to apply a strict and rigorous methodology in order to pose a mature, complete and precise reflection. This course will focus on the development of this ability for the student. To develop skills in methodology, it is necessary to take as an example the fundamental subjects of methodology: the dissertation in history-geography and the dissertation in philosophy. This is why this course combines the development of methodological and writing skills and the revision of the main concepts and main chapters of philosophy and history-geography for the baccalaureate.

Being a native French speaker with a Bachelor’s in Literature and Philosophy, I can help you learn French in all its forms: oral and written comprehension, speaking and writing. I have already given classes to many pupils (6 in total) so I have a good experience of giving classes. I am also flexible, so I can adapt to your needs and to your schedule. Having obtained a Bachelor’s in Literature and Philosophy, I can also teach students how to analyse literary and philosophical texts in both English and French. I already helped students obtain their French Baccalaureate with very satisfying grades (17/20 for example). If you have any questions or needs, I am open and ready to answer any questions very rapidly!

Annika

The course is intended for beginners as well as for experts who want to improve their creative writing. In addition, my specialty areas are philosophy and literary studies, together we will read stimulating literature and hold a philosophical discourse about it in our course. This not only broadens the horizon, but also trains and improves argumentative and rhetorical skills. Do you want to improve your language skills? Do you want to be able to have a stimulating conversation and convince with your rhetorical skills at school or at work? Then you are right with me! I look forward to training together!

el Yacoubi
Philosophy course for all levels and Dissertation / Explanation training
Philosophy seems a very hazy discipline and difficult to approach for a lot of people, and the demands of the professors as well as of the baccalaureate and other competitions are not always easy to decipher. This is why I am here to accompany you and clear the path for you, given that I have already traveled it for the past 8 years! I hold a Master 1 in teaching and preparation for competitions and a Master 2 option European Culture and I have been carrying out philosophical introductory workshops for 3 years (around themes such as justice, freedom, tastes, work ...) with young students in difficulty in two colleges.

George William
Philosophy tutor teaching a seminar style class to 16-18 philosophy students
Seminar style Philosophy tutoring for A-Level students (Students between the ages of 16-18). I believe that discussing essay topics and ideas with other enthusiastic philosophy students and in the presence of a teacher with a Master's degree in the subject will offer these tutees a significant edge over most students studying the subject at that age.

Romero
Deepening / course / training in Philosophy (high school)
We philosophize to different degrees every day without realizing it, Gramsci tells us. To the extent that all forms of moral reflection then lead to rational reflection, we philosophize every day. This course is there for those who want to learn more about philosophy or just high schools in the process of learning and who want to improve.
