    SAT/ACT Preparation - For Paris Lycéens/High School students trying to enter US universities

    I offer one-to-one SAT preparation sessions for students in Paris looking to enter American Universities.

    My lessons will focus on both the reading and writing sections and mathematics section. For the first I will work with students to improve their English reading and reasoning ability and practice writing the short essays on the topics from past-papers. The maths sessions will include close work on previous problems and general mathematics principles required for the exam.

    I will also review exam technique and approach with my students. The SATs/ACT are long exams with high-time pressure and good time management is crucial for achieving a high score.


    A little more about me: I am English/Irish and live in Paris. I entered the US university system as a foreign student after achieving a 1480 in my SATs in 2016. I attended New York University (2016-2020) achieving a GPA of 3.96 and finished in the top 1% of my graduation class. I also completed the post-graduate GRE aptitude tests and achieved scores in the 91st percentile. I then attended École Normale Supérieure and attained my masters' degree in 2022.

    About Me

    I am an English/Irishman living in Paris. I work as a research engineer at the Insitut Jean Nicod at École Normale Supérieure. I am a native English speaker and speak French at a functional level.

    I offer SAT/ACT preparation classes for students in Paris who would like to study in the US. I really loved studying in the US and would love to help young French people to be able to have the same academic and personal experience.

I give Spanish and Korean classes, both for reinforcement for EAO students and for those who want to start studying. Both in person and online. In the classes I work above all with a communicative and grammatical approach in a dynamic and fun way. I have lived for more than two years in Korea. My first contact with Korea was in 2017 after doing a summer course at Sungkyunkwan University and then I went as an exchange student at the University of Seoul and Kyungpook National University (2021-22), in the latter I did the language program Korean from TOPIK level 3 to 5 (B1-C1) I am also accredited by the Instituto Cervantes as a DELE examiner for levels A1-A2-B1-B2, School A1+A2/B1. I have taught Korean for several years and taught Spanish at the University of Seoul and at an academy in Osaka. I currently work as a tenured professor in a school accredited by the Instituto Cervantes. In the case of online classes, all the material will be provided to you by email or Google Classroom. Personalized tracking. Get feedback and solve all your doubts at any time (I guarantee a response in less than 24 hours). If you want to follow a specific book, don't hesitate to tell me.

    I am Mavi, a physics engineer working at an aerospace company. I have been teaching private lessons at the primary, secondary, high school, and university preparatory levels for 9 years. I teach mathematics, physics, chemistry, and science. I have a good command of the curricula of IB, IGCSE, American, Hong Kong, and international schools. Additionally, I hold the position of president at the Astronomy Society, where I foster my students' interest in astronomy and science beyond the lessons. I prepare the learning environment by incorporating experiments and exploration, moving away from rote education. I often bring experimental materials to class, aiming to make learning memorable through hands-on experiments. As an educational mentor, I approach my students as if they were my siblings, valuing creativity. I have a deep passion for mathematics, physics, and science. I am dedicated to helping students understand and learn because life encompasses both SCIENCE and ART. The more people I can inspire to know, understand, and love mathematics, physics, and chemistry, the more proud I am. Are you curious about how nature works? Let's explore together!

    Learning English is easy! Trust yourself -lessons of writing, reading and oral expression for all levels
    Hello my name is Audrey! I'm a student in international relations and Chinese foreign languages at INALCO. Because of my studies and having traveled a lot, I know how difficult it can be to learn a foreign language and how difficult it can be to overcome certain levels and to be confident in a language that is not our mother tongue. That's why I offer you my help! I am a French native from Poitou Charente. I traveled all around the world when i was a teenager and a young adult especially in Asia. Now i'm finishing my studies in Paris. For several years, I have been teaching English to children and adults of all levels. I have accompanied Koreans, Iranians, French etc. My goal is that you enjoy learning English and reach your goals. The course will be totally personalized and adapted to your needs and interests. I will also introduce you to the culture during our lessons (current events, highlights of the year, etc.) because in order to learn a language you need to understand the culture of the country. My classes will focus on the five skills: speaking, writing, listening, reading and grammar. Of course, if you wish to work on only one aspect in particular, this will be possible. We can use the material you have or we can also work with the resources I have. At your request and according to your needs I can give you homework to continue your efforts outside of our classes. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I will be happy to discuss with you your expectations, your goals and my work method. I look forward to helping you in your quest to master the English language.

    Homework help in French and Maths from CP to 3rd grade (-50% tax credit!)
    - If you are tired of paying tutoring organizations that send you students who have the knowledge but not the pedagogy... - If you are tired of only finding highly qualified teachers while your daughter is only in 5th grade... You have come across the right ad! ★ I am versatile: I can help your children with French and Maths. I can also help them in English and Spanish but I should point out that I am not trilingual, I provide academic support. ★ I'm listening: A prior discussion with parents is essential in order to know precisely the academic problems of their children and to best guide my lessons. I also like to ask the children afterwards what their difficulties are to see if parents and children have the same perception. When the assessment is established, I question the students on what they are studying in class with a view to following the program while trying to review specific points that have not been assimilated. I mainly use their courses and their textbooks so that my students keep their bearings, but if necessary I use the material I have. ★ I am a translator of incomprehensible courses: Indeed, the lessons are completely incomprehensible for most students. They are formalized in a way that no teenager can understand them. All students have the potential to become good as long as the concepts are well explained. My mission is therefore to simplify them and transcribe them into clear language. ★ I am methodical: I have improved my working methods through my 8 years of teaching. They are based on understanding and not on rote learning. The students must be able to re-explain their lesson to me and thus demonstrate that it has been completely understood. I give exercises of increasing difficulty and which allow optimal progression. I can also give exercises to do for the next session. When there is time left, I even take the opportunity to move forward with the program so that they get the best possible grades! ★ I am a coach with a psychological approach: During my adolescence, I was school phobic and that's why I do everything to help my students feel better at school. I'm not just here to help them with their homework. All my lessons are personalized because each student is different. I like to know how they perceive the subject, if they appreciate their teachers in class, the job they want to do later... I make a point of letting my students find the solutions to the exercises on their own so that they are proud of themselves. In addition, I will encourage them to develop a taste for effort (pay attention to their spelling and write neatly) in order to systematically produce quality work and gain self-esteem. I restore confidence in my students because it is important that they are happy and motivated to be effective in their work. ★ I do my job with pleasure: I like to pass on knowledge and see my students progress. Teaching is for me a real pleasure and not a nutritional need. I therefore offer real supervision throughout the school year. Observation, listening, work and encouragement are the 4 pillars of my teaching. The goal is for them to be autonomous and independent at the end of the school year! My lessons boil down to this: good humor and efficiency! ★ Hours: - Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. - Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. ★ Classes at your home in Paris: ★ Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions because I am very responsive on Apprentus (around 1 hour). We will therefore be able to organize a first course quickly. See you soon !

    Third-year law student at the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, I help to do the homework with confidence :)
    The course begins with a small presentation, in order to relax the atmosphere. I use a playful method to prevent the student from getting bored. The goal is to guide the student towards autonomy, but also to develop his self-confidence. I accompany the student in his difficulty in literary matters.

    SCHOOL SUPPORT - for the student (Primary & Middle School)
    I offer academic support from primary to secondary school (only in the general sector). I consider mutual trust to be an essential element during lessons. I am aware that struggling students are sometimes hesitant to ask questions for fear of feeling embarrassed. With me, it's different: no question or error is considered "stupid". Our goal is to learn, and it is by making mistakes that we progress! In addition, I am committed to following the student's pace and adapting to them and to your requests so that the lessons are the most effective for their learning.

    Private lessons, French and English specialty, suitable for young dyslexics
    Student in letters and humanities with a C1 level in English, I teach French and English language courses. In addition, holder of a baccalaureate with honors in the scientific section, I am also able to help young people in these areas (maximum college level). My courses can be given face-to-face in Paris or online. The courses must of course be adapted according to each one. The first session makes it possible to identify the needs of the child and clearly identify his shortcomings. In general, bad bases are the source of later difficulties. It is therefore a question of focusing on this at the beginning, then of applying them as soon as possible in parallel with the dynamics of the courses. If we have the time, we can go further than what the courses offer, the objective being to give the student confidence in his abilities and encourage him to move forward independently. In addition, I adapt in a pedagogical way to children affected by dyslexia. Having worked with a speech therapist when I was young, I can help these young people overcome their apprehensions.

    My class is suitable for everyone, whether you want to start from the basics, focus on writing a resume, etc. every day encounters. I have experience teaching children, as I am currently an Au Pair, teaching them English. A little bit about me, I have completed the official IELTS exam where I got grade C1 (advanced). I have also worked in a company whose main language is English. Born in Finland, where English is taught for 10 years, I would say that I'm almost like a native English speaker!
