I am currently teaching German on a one on one base through individualized online teaching via zoom or any other online platform. I teach German grammar as well as conversational German and German for business and/or research. Please don't hesitate contact me to find out more about my teachings by asking questions and letting me know about your goals and concerns. I not only speak German as my mother tongue, but I also have excellent English skills and have taught adults and children in Japan, the USA and France. While living in Japan, I taught English to biologists of a biotech-company. For this purpose, I prepared current newspaper articles corresponding to the interests of the students and the teaching objectives for the classes. In class, the students and I used these articles to study the language, discuss the vocabulary and grammar as well as the language style used. In New York, I did not teach a language, but fashion design at the University (FIT Fashion Institute of Technology, NYC) for several years. All classes were taught in English with the student body consisting of international students, which required detailed preparation of the class. At the High School of Fashion Industries (HSFI), also in NYC, I taught fashion design and creation to students grade 9 - 12. Here too, the lessons were exclusively taught in English. For my teachings, I developed daily detailed lesson plans to not only make sure that the predetermined class goals were easily reached, but also to ensure that the class content was tailored to the students' needs and that a positive learning climate was promoted.

Homework sessions and tutoring in Paris
Currently a student in art school and performing arts, I first evolved into a scientific university in Paris Descartes at the end of my bachelor's degree with honors. In addition, I am very comfortable in English and Italian. Depending on the subject, the needs and expectations of the student, my methodology may vary. I like to know the courses studied to prepare the session at best. Depending on the duties given by the professors, each session will be developed as follows; replay of the lesson, a little quiz of comprehension and exercises. All this is intended to give the student a solid foundation of work.

Hello ! I offer help with homework in all subjects from primary to second. Student in urban planning M2 at the Sorbonne, after a scientific baccalaureate (honors) and a prepa letters and social sciences (hypokhâgne and khâgne BL). I want to use my experience through the personalized follow-up of a student. I have had homework help myself in my schooling, my father is a university professor and I have already helped homework with students. It seems important to me to be able to put myself in the student's shoes in order to understand what he does not understand and tailor the help. Through travels and courses, I gained a good command of English. I propose also private lessons of English. I am also available punctually, or regularly in the evening, to babysit. I already have experience in babysitting.
