Audrey
Help with homework, acquisition and mastery of knowledge
Hello, my name is Audrey! (English Bellow) I am a student in international relations and foreign languages (Chinese) at INALCO. My studies led me to work on many and very diverse subjects but above all to learn and quickly master many concepts and knowledge! To achieve my goals, I had to develop tips and use methods. So I know how daunting, frustrating and even impossible to achieve it can sometimes seem. Also, I propose to accompany you to help you, whatever your level (primary, college, high school, higher education), to achieve your goals without being discouraged. I had the opportunity in the past to help children and adolescents in their learning. It is true that not everyone has the same abilities or the same appetite for studies, but everyone is driven by a passion, a center of interest. Use them to learn! For instance : You or your child are passionate about music, let's create a melody to make you remember this grammar lesson on which you have been stuck for several days so that it definitely fits in your mind. Passionate about drawing? Let's create memory cards together so that you artistically memorize all the dates related to the First and Second World Wars, for example. Learning does not exclusively involve cramming, it is also and above all about understanding the content and confidence (in oneself and in one's skills)! My sessions aim to offer the student, young people a warm space in which they feel confident to learn, try and sometimes fail. Each course is unique and adapts to your needs. I am currently in Paris and I can move if necessary. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I will be happy to talk with you about your expectations, your objectives and my working method. Looking forward to help you! See you soon Hello my name is Audrey!

English Tutoring for Children and Teenagers - Beg-Adv
Hello! I have been teaching English for five years, to adults and children alike. I offer classes that are uniquely adapted to the students needs and their interests. My aim is to build my student's confidence, by following their line of inquiry — engaging in a rich, and increasingly challenging dialogue with the individual. My classes are for children and teenagers, who want to: . Develop and widen their vocabulary; . Need help preparing for an exam, a paper or an important interview; . Gain confidence in spoken English; . Attain a fluent level of spoken and written English We will begin by identifying the student's greatest interests — those subjects they are most curious about and topics that stimulate them. These topics will be "stimulators", fueling conversations and language activities that the student themselves will eventually lead. Then, we will identify the student's biggest worries regarding the English language — where they are confused, or tend to make mistakes. This will form the workshop part of the lesson, focused on overcoming tricky grammatical mistakes and revising more complex linguistic and phonetic errors. I also offer the possibility of following a Cambridge exam oriented syllabus, such as Family and Friends, Cambridge Starters, Movers, Flyers, or B1, B2. After 8 years of teaching I have found this tailored approach to be, by far, the most effective. I look forward to collaborating with you soon!
