    Passionate about history, I am at your disposal for any help you would need to organize and study your EDM / geography / human sciences courses. Focusing on efficiency, I make sure that the study relies as much as possible on current events in order to make it alive and relevant. All seriously, but always in a good mood.

    Private lessons / preparation for Grandes Ecoles competitions: economics, political science, general culture, English, French
    Doctor in political science and graduate in economics (Master), I have been teaching humanities in English and French in various grandes écoles (IEP) and business schools (EDHEC, SKEMA) for more than ten years. Always respectful of the pace and needs of my students, I help them achieve their goals (preparation of files or entrance exams to high school, validation of exams ...) serenely. For ten years, my goal has been the same: to help my students to surpass themselves by communicating to them a deep joy of learning. I suggest you help you refine your file, consolidate your knowledge (general culture, economics or political science) and sharpen your skills (reflection / writing / presentation) so that, rather than arid "tests", your exams become opportunities or occasions to demonstrate your progress.

This course can be delivered catering to the current knowledge level of the student. With a discussion based approach and full of real life examples, this course will aspire to be the most exciting course you have ever taken!

    Dr Vincent
    Politics Tutoring for Postgraduates, Undergraduates and Sixth Formers.
    I would want to cover the particular curriculum for the Politics subject which I am tutoring. As it happens, because of my advanced studies and teaching experience, I would feel able to cover most politics curricula in the fields of British, European and American Politics. It would be important to identify the specific aims of the subject curricula and apply them towards teaching the student (s) both for the purposes of meeting any course dissertations and also preparing for examinations. My priorities would embrace three areas. 1. Subject reading of textbooks, journals, tv/radio programmes and other leading sources. 2.Intensive essay and document writing, with close scrutiny of each assignment. 3. Constant attention to past exam papers and regular mock testing/monitoring under exam conditions.

    Marcos
    History and Politics Class - Gaining Perspective with Marcos
    Knowledge of history is a very valuable asset to people in a general sense. In order to understand the world in which we find ourselves, it is crucial to know how we reached our current position. Our current position is based on thousands of years worth of significant decisions; whether that would be in a courtroom, on a battlefield or in parliament. In this class, it is my simple aim to explore this variety of significant moments, in order for each student to gain a better perspective on the world as we see it today. Since yesterday's decisions are valuable to learn, it is therefore crucial to understand today's. The political science section of this class will further aim to explore different ideologies of different groups, and how they achieved them. This once more, will provide a vital understanding to all students regarding a better understanding of our current affairs in the world.

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 to show connections between ideas, etc. - books, PPP, word docs, diagrams, pics, 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.

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 sit an exam, I am very demanding. What can I teach? - I can prepare you for exams at school / university. - I can help you with assignments / HW. - I can help you with translations / commentaries / grammar / syntax.
