About Me

I am a journalist in the written press, I have been teaching French and English for over ten years and I am also a translator (English to French).
I have always been passionate about the French language and I have made it my job, but I also have real affinities with English. And since passions are meant to be shared, I love to teach. I gave my first class at the age of 19, in 2008. I was teaching French as a foreign language, and since then I have never really stopped. In the process, I have developed my knowledge, my experiences and my teaching methods. Today, the most important for me is to have fun because it is the most pleasant and the most effective way to learn.

Individual German seminar for learning in turbo mode. All levels
THE PUPIL This announcement is aimed at both pupils and adults wishing to acquire the German language. I offer tailor-made individual German seminars for levels A1 (beginner) to C2 (perfect mastery). My goal is to make my student independent as quickly as possible. THE METHOD Contrary to popular belief, German is a very tame language. You are certainly familiar with the language courses at school. You are given lists to learn by heart and you are asked to do exercises completely unrelated to the reality of a speaker. We explain grammar to you by confusing French grammar and German grammar. This is why no one manages to express themselves in German having undergone this kind of method which has proven for a century that it does not work. With me, my student has a second chance thanks to intelligent theory and pragmatic methodology. Indeed, I am currently writing a book on the acquisition of foreign languages. THE TEACHER I have 5 years of experience teaching German and an average rating of 5/5. German is my mother tongue, with no particular accent. I master French as if it were a mother tongue. I am fluent in English and Portuguese and have an intermediate level in Latin as well as some basics of Greek. My personal linguistic goal at the moment is to master Latin fluently orally. To maximize the quality of the courses, the sessions take place by video call in combination with Google Drive: - individual tailor-made course - interactive text document - interactive whiteboard - photos or scans can be imported - readable writing - instant written feedback during speaking - very flexible schedule - no time-consuming trips If you are interested, do not hesitate to contact me to arrange an appointment or to ask me your questions. I look forward to meeting you.

[ONLINE] Preparation for DELF B1 / B2 and DALF C1 / C2. French as a foreign language course
My course is intended for non-French speaking adults of all levels (beginner, intermediate, advanced). I use an effective learning method adapted to each student. I use various educational documents, such as press articles, courses specially prepared for the student with targeted exercises, oral comprehension, written expressions ... Each daily lesson includes the progressive learning of grammar, spelling, pronunciation, conjugation and vocabulary. I also focus on oral and written expression.

Grégoire
French courses at all levels / mother tongue or foreign language
For more than eight years, I have taught French and French history and civilization to students, students and adults to help them to pass the levels (from primary to mature) or exams (mature) to study it as a foreign language in order to easily communicate or obtain a certification (DELF). Depending on the situation we will study more specifically this or that component of the language: pronunciation, syntax, vocabulary, grammar, spelling, literature, dissertation, commercial writing, literary etc. For students, the goal is to help them succeed and to enjoy studying their mother tongue. And for adults, give them all the means to communicate easily in a new language and understand its context (civilization) if necessary. If you see in this announcement a possibility to help your child or to learn your own beautiful language, I am at your disposal for a first interview where we will set a detailed and adapted program. I can speak English or German if necessary (beginners) to facilitate learning

Preparation FIDE Naturalisation Suisse Test de français Vaud
I am a qualified teacher of French (FLE). I offer private French tuitions to individuals or small groups, from beginner level A1 to advanced C2. I can help you improve your listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. The lessons will ideally take place in a well-chosen café place or outdoors, while visiting places and interacting in order to really engage into real life situations. I can register my students to take a recognised test in Switzerland (a DELF beginner level A2 is usually required for people applying for a C permit). The intermediate level B2 is an asset when applying for jobs or to enter University. If you are not sure, I can assess your actual level and help you define your goal (personal/ business/ A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2). Then, I will set your objectives within a time frame, with a schedule and a total number of lessons. I will pick and provide you with the best teaching resources according to your needs and the objectives set, so you don’t have to buy any teaching materials. In between each lesson, I will give you a task to prepare which will be used as a starter for the next lesson. My experience and commitment will get you to outperform your goals. Imagine your life in Switzerland once you can communicate properly in French. It’s worth it and you can do it!

French private lessons by university graduate in Letters
French private lessons are for students wishing: - consolidate their bases in grammar, spelling - improve their language skills (allophone students) - improve their speaking skills (conversation classes) -profect the written expression - ECR exams - prepare for the written examinations at the end of the studies (maturity, certificate of completion) - help with the writing of works of maturity (or other works of end of studies), of dissertation - work on argumentative texts - acquire a method to analyze literary texts - fill gaps - improve their spelling - prepare for oral exams (maturity, compulsory leaving certificates) - learn how to perform bibliographic research For help with writing: The objective is above all to acquire effective tools. The student will thus be able to learn to structure his ideas, argue coherently (and convincingly) and enrich his vocabulary. It is essential for me to have written work from the student between each lesson. For the corrections of end of studies work: so that the meeting with the student is at the most profitable, I ask him to send me his writings before the meeting. Apart from my presence with the student, any course involves a preparation time before and after the lesson, including the work that I correct. My goal is to design an individualized course, so I take the time to write detailed comments on corrected work or tips to ensure maximum success for everyone. For example, an editorial correction can easily be the subject of a detailed commentary of 4 typewritten pages. For adults (FLE): In order to optimally prepare the first ones, I take the initiative to inform myself in advance of their objectives / expectations. Whether to practice speaking in everyday life, the professional world or to practice oral presentations, I prepare either PPT or technical sheets in advance that I send by mail ( after booking on the website). The other alternative is to make a PV of the course that I send (or that I print). Giving importance to keeping a written record on the one hand to better memorize the topics covered, on the other hand to better assimilate the spelling. Of a general nature, a concrete situation that responds to the learner's needs is the starting point. From this situation, I address the essential grammatical points.

Private lessons in mathematics - sciences - chemistry - French
Recently graduated from EPFL in Environmental Sciences and Engineering, with a specialization in water, soil and ecosystem engineering, I offer individualized support to fill gaps in mathematics (analysis, linear algebra, numerical analysis, probabilities) and / or in other basic sciences (chemistry, environmental sciences, etc.). As a part-time correspondent for a French-speaking daily, I can also provide support in French for all types of editorial work. Substitute for nearly two months in a college in the Lausanne region, I know how to demonstrate pedagogy and adapt myself as well as possible to the difficulties encountered by the students, in order to offer them the learning method best suited to their needs, the while combining rigor and good humor :)

Cours particuliers de français pour tous les niveaux : EN LIGNE
Les cours particuliers de français sont destinés aux élèves souhaitant: - consolider leurs bases en grammaire, orthographe - perfectionner leurs connaissances linguistiques (élèves allophones) - perfectionner leur expression orale (cours de conversation) -perfectionner l'expression écrite - examens ECR - se préparer aux examens écrits de fin d'études (maturité, certificat de fin d'étude obligatoire) - une aide à la rédaction de travaux de maturité (ou autres travaux de fin d'études), de dissertation - travailler sur des textes argumentatifs - acquérir une méthode pour analyser des textes littéraires - combler des lacunes - améliorer leur orthographe - se préparer aux examens oraux (maturité, certificats de fin d'études obligatoire) - apprendre à effectuer des recherches bibliographiques Pour l'aide à la rédaction: L'objectif est avant tout d' acquérir des outils efficaces. L'élève pourra ainsi apprendre à structurer ses idées, argumenter de manière cohérente (et convaincante)et enrichir son vocabulaire. Pour les corrections de travaux de fin d'études: afin que la rencontre avec l'élève soit au maximum profitable, je lui demande de m'envoyer ses écrits avant la rencontre. Hormis ma présence avec l'élève, tout cours implique un temps de préparation avant et après la leçon, notamment les travaux que je corrige. Mon objectif étant de concevoir un cours individualisé, je prends le temps nécessaire pour rédiger des commentaires détaillés sur un travail corrigé ou des conseils pour assurer un maximum la réussite de chacun. À titre d'exemple, une correction de rédaction peut aisément faire l'objet d'un commentaire détaillé de 4 pages dactylographiées. Pour les adultes (FLE): Afin de préparer de manière optimale les premiers , je prends l'initiative de m'informer au préalable leurs objectifs/attentes. Que ce soit pour s'exercer à l'expression orale dans la vie quotidienne, le monde professionnel ou s'entraîner à des présentations orales, je prépare soit des PPT, soit des fiches techniques à l'avance que j'envoie par mail (après la réservation sur le site). L'autre alternative est de faire un PV du cours que j'envoie (ou que j'imprime). Accorder de l'importance à garder une trace écrite permet d'une part de mieux mémoriser les sujets abordés, d'autre part de mieux assimiler l'orthographe. D'ordre général, une situation concrète qui répond au besoin de l'apprenant est le point de départ. À partir de cette situation, j'aborde les points grammaticaux essentiels.

De technologie om je Frans te verbeteren. Lessen met een gecertificeerde native docent.
TECHNOLOGIEËN VOOR HET LEREN. Hallo, Mijn naam is Laurie en ik ben een onafhankelijke FLE-leraar, afgestudeerd in het Frans en Romaanse talen en literatuur sinds 2012. Ik heb vijf jaar ervaring onder mijn riem (in het buitenland en in België). Ik heb LangMethod gemaakt, een leermethode voor online cursussen. De cursus omvat: -Het materiaal (artikelen, video's, oefeningen van afbeeldingen en teksten, grammaticale theorie, links naar de oefeningen ...). Ik gebruik Google Doc, dus het beste is om een ​​Gmail-adres te hebben om er toegang toe te hebben. -De correctie van oefeningen buiten de les (de schriftelijke uitdrukkingen worden gecorrigeerd buiten de les, of met de student, volgens zijn behoeften). -Toegang tot een applicatie (gratis) om woordenschat op uw smartphone te bestuderen. -Een woordenschatblad - uitspraak - grammatica / vervoeging, verzonden na elke cursus. -Indien nodig, een vocabulaireopname (voor beginners). -De realisatie van online oefeningen en tests uit de verzonden vocabulairebladen. -Motivatie, gelach, goed humeur :-) Mijn methode: - Het is gebaseerd op spreken. -Voor grammatica gebruik ik een vraag / antwoord-methode (geleerd tijdens de training in het CERAN-centrum). -We werken aan de uitspraak met de verbotonale methode (oefeningen om je stem te zetten, voor ritme, enz.). Ik zou je misschien zelfs laten zingen! :-) -Alles gaat door het gesproken woord voordat het geschreven woord wordt doorlopen, maar ik pas me duidelijk aan aan de behoeften van de studenten. -De cursus is een beetje anders voor kinderen en adolescenten: ik gebruik interactieve games en kaarten via de webcam. Tot binnenkort! Laurie NB: Mogelijkheid om een ​​factuur te maken voor particulieren of bedrijven.
