(I)GCSE English Literature / IB English Literature
Having difficulties analysing poems and prose in your (I) GCSE / IB English Literature course? Looking to amp your essays up a notch and finally get that A/A* or 6/7 that you have been dreaming of? I am here to help. The first thing to remember: though analysing works of literature isn't always fun, everybody can master the techniques of how to do it. But learning takes time, which the school teacher may often lack. Indeed, it has been my own experience that English teachers often choose width over depth, and so discussions are cut short for the sake of covering all elements of the teaching programme, leaving many interesting aspects of a particular work unexplored. Or sometimes it's just the attention that wanders off as the teacher is explaining these pesky concepts of "writer's voice", "writer's tone", "meter", "rhymescheme" and so on. Let me assure you: that, too, happens even to the best of us. What I can offer you is exactly what a teacher normally does not time for: exploring a work of literature in as much detail (both analytical and technical) as it takes to push the quality of your essays up to the desired level. My approach is informed by IB / (I)GSCE Eng Lit course guidelines to make sure that the quality of your answer would be developed in accordance with what examiners want to see. Armed with a deep passion for literature on the one hand (reading and writing poems and short stories are one of my favorite things to do) and knowledge of ways of critical analysis (obtained in IB English Lit and reinforced by philosophy courses on university level) which are of tremendous importance in literary analysis as well, I will show you how to deconstruct any piece, how to place it in its cultural context, and make educated guesses about the links between cultural context and the author's choice of stylistical devices. And best of all - unlike in the classroom, the learning experience is tailored to you (based on your way of learning / remembering) and delivered in a highly interactive way! The skills described above, coupled with general essay writing tips will lend authority and style to your summative essays and exam answers, boosting your academic confidence.

Impeccable French: private classes tailored for you
Whether you'd like to sharpen your style, perfect your oral skills, prepare an exam or just start from scratch, I'd be glad to walk you through the jungle of the French language. My methods are based on listening, dialog and creativity: they adjust to match your needs, goals and interests may you be looking for help with academic French at school, conversational French, or writing tips (you name it!) You can count on lots of videos, podcasts, articles, songs, fiction and non fiction texts, photos, art pieces, social media posts, TV series, etc. as well as oral and written homemade exercises, tests, etc. to go on at your own pace with autonomy. I am there to make you feel comfortable and confident and help you reveal your linguistic and literary skills in a relaxed and playful atmosphere. Your questions, doubts and mistakes will be the engine of the classes. I studied Modern Literature and Creative Writing in Paris and I have tutored students of all ages and proficiency since 2017. I keep on learning as well with each and everyone of my students. Feel free to contact me! Thank you! Noémie

French for all level, including IB French with a native French speaker
I am a native-speaking french teacher, who has achieved a high 6 in IB french A level, self-taught. I believe in teaching french (and languages in general) through practice: we will speak french in every class while learning about grammar, and practising writing skills. If you are an Ib student, I can help you prepare for your exams, IAs and IOs and achieve the best possible marks. Having lived in France for a major part of my life, I gladly discuss french culture, history and literature with you if you are interested. I am all for making classes as enjoyable as possible !!! A little more about me, I have tutored a few students in French in the last few years, and I graduated from the IB in 2021 with 39 points in ETIS (ESPOO). I am to enter the University of Warwick in a Politics, Economics and Philosophy degree in the end of September.
English Literature for All Levels, Beginner to Advanced
This class is for anyone interested in the literature of Great Britain and the English speaking world, from beginners to advanced. The focus is to learn about, analyse and understand key works of English Literature. It is possible to focus on one period (such as Shakespearean, Modern, Medieval) or one area (such as Ireland, America, England). The class will use the works themselves, such as Dickens, Eliot, or Woolf, and will read and analyse in detail, with set essays and discussions. Even beginners are welcome.

French courses, Literature, French as a foreign language (FLE) - ADULTS
Associate Professor, Doctor of Letters, translator, teaches French, Literature and French as a Foreign Language. This course can be addressed to: - higher education students needing support in French and comparative literature, in essay and commentary methodology, or in translation studies (from English, German, Italian or Greek modern); -to any French-speaking person needing a refresher in grammar and spelling; - to any non-French speaking person who needs and wants to learn to speak French (English can be used as an intermediate language if necessary).
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.
