One-on-one Japanese lessons around Forest and St-Gilles

Konnichiwa! Do you want to learn Japanese? Or do you want someone to practice with? Join me, and we'll work together to improve your level.

I have over ten years of experience speaking Japanese, and lived in Japan for four of these, where I did my masters in engineering completely in Japanese (except for the thesis).

I will be teaching Japanese grammar at the beginner and intermediate levels. I tend to mainly teach with conversation, but we can also dive into the details if that's what you prefer. The lesson could be conducted entirely in Japanese, or I can explain certain concepts in French or (preferably) English.

About Me

Hello!

I'm a robotics engineer and a Python expert. I have lived and worked in many countries around the world, and speak nine languages. I lived in Japan for four years while I did my masters, and have been speaking it for more than ten. In fact, my Japanese is better than some of my native languages.

I will be teaching Python programming (especially focusing on the scientific stack), as well as Japanese, and maybe some English, Math or Physics too. I love helping people learn.

Here are a couple of examples of some of my students on how Python changed their lives.

In one case, I started by automating one report of a financial analyst working for a grocery store chain, allowing him to start learning Python on the job. I also automated one of his side jobs, giving him more disposable income. He has since automated many more of his tasks, and has been providing useful insights to his company, which earned him a promotion and a sponsored masters degree. I still provide support as necessary.

In another, I enabled a PhD student to analyze their electron-phase micrographs by writing software with them which did the job of commercial software with an expensive license. I was acknowledged by name in their paper. He has since graduated.

Note: All classes at the student's location must be somewhere where no smokers (including e.g., roommates or parents) live.

Education

Masters of Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronics Laboratory, Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan. 2017.
Bachelor of Applied Sciences, Honours Mechatronics Engineering, University of Waterloo, Waterloo, ON, Canada. 2013.

Experience / Qualifications

I've worked in 5 countries. Most recently, I was a data scientist in Antwerp, then an industry automation consultant here in Brussels.

Reviews (1)

Jean is a very patient and helpful pedagogue. I came to him with a very specific set of requests and he helped me tremendously. We have more lessons planned because of this, to which I am looking forward.
Do you want to improve your productivity in class or at work? Are you tired of using Excel for things it's not meant for? Do you want to analyze and visualize your data? Do you want to generate valuable insights? Do you want to talk to sensors and devices? Then you've come to the right place. You don't need to want to become a developer in order to learn Python. Most people who program in Python actually work in another field, but use Python as a superpower to help them do their job more efficiently and effectively, or even do do things that were previously impossible. I will be teaching you one-on-one. We'll see what you want to do, and I help you work towards that goal. I will be using best practices as appropriate to your level. We might work with Jupyter notebooks if you have nothing more specific that you prefer to do. But I can also work with you on analyzing your data, controlling your devices and robots, or even building tools that you feel that you need. Depending on your application, we might even do some machine learning. Some case studies involving students of mine: In one case, I started by automating one report of a financial analyst who had never programmed before, allowing him to start learning Python on during working hours. I also automated one of his side jobs, giving him more disposable income. He has since automated many more of his tasks, and has been providing completely new insights to his company, This has earned him a promotion and a sponsored masters degree. I still provide support as necessary. In another, I enabled a PhD student to analyze their electron-phase micrographs by writing software with them which did the job of commercial software with an expensive license. I was acknowledged by name in their paper. Note: Python 3 only, unless you are required to use Python 2.
Do you want to learn programming? Do you have lots of boring, repetitive tasks, either at work or at home? Are you having trouble with your homework or your courses? Do you want to automate your life? Then come learn Python with me. You don't need to want to become a developer in order to learn Python. Most people who program in Python actually work in another field, but use Python as a superpower to help them do their job more efficiently and effectively. I will be teaching you one-on-one. We'll see what you want to do, and I help you work towards that goal. I will be using best practices as appropriate to your level. Most of our work will be in Jupyter notebooks.

Are you having trouble with homework? Do you have a class that's so frustrating you don't see the point in learning it? I'm a robotics engineer, and I love helping people learn and appreciate the world around them. I'll help you with your homework, and I can show you where pretty much anything you might learn is used in real life. I might even be able to show you places you could implement it yourself!

Turkish Lessons (In-Person OR Online) for Adults and Kids from an Experienced and Patient Teacher For All Levels-Learn&Practice&Speak!
I have been teaching Turkish for 17 years. I started to teach when I was studying Turkish Language and Literature. I worked in a language school and at the universities, I suppose that I gained success. 😊 My achievements are directly proportional to my students’ success. My students are mostly the teachers, consulate officers, international business people, and also travellers. I feel rewarded when I witness their progress in applying their Turkish language skills to their daily lives. Over the years, I have met hundreds of people from all over the world, taught Turkish, and told them about Istanbul and Turkey. Those people told me about their countries and learned to express themselves in Turkish. For example, I ask them: “Do you like Istanbul?” in Turkish it is “İstanbul’u senior museum?” or “ Traffic is very bad in Istanbul!”, “İstanbul’ da çok Trafik var!” The basic but correct conversation is really important for self-confidence in any language. If a learner can master basic sentence forms, the rest will come much easier. On the other hand, making mistakes is also very important. Especially, a learner can not speak without making a mistake the first and second time. My students are always varied and have diverse learning skills. My professionalism also allows me to tailor language education according to individual interests, needs, and capacities. In the classroom, I hold firm three main principles: first, providing a comfortable environment, second, creating an encouraging atmosphere, and third, establishing a collaborative instruction model. I consider that I developed an aptitude for making learning Turkish to become much easier, enjoyable and practical for my students. I use a book prepared by a university in Turkey. I share the pdf version of the book for my lessons. I also adapt the materials according to the learner’s needs and support the book with my authentic materials. Even though I use a communicative approach, all my lessons are guided by a solid knowledge of grammar. On the online lessons, I send an e-mail after every lesson. That word file includes a vocabulary list, sentences (corrected and uncorrected versions, you can compare both of them easily), grammar point and homework for revision. In this way, you can find everything in a file well organized. When we have a face to face lesson, I give a hard copy of this list after every lesson. The lessons could be at my home office or in my student's house or office. I sometimes meet with my students in a coffee shop, I try to prefer silent places. :) How learning a new language opens a new window into a person, teaching Turkish is also the same for me! I was always interested in languages - I could speak a bit of Italian and learned Persian grammar except English. I always think about Istanbul -I was born and grew up here- it is a good place for self-improvement. First and foremost, Istanbul hosts international people coming from around the world. It is considering to me, I am lucky because I have one of the pleasant professions. When teaching Turkish, promoting cross-cultural awareness forms an important part of my lessons. Teaching the language involves both the students and myself in a dynamic conversation about our cultural backgrounds. Teaching Turkish is in fact not only teaching a language but also teaching a culture. I am interested in cinema, music and like visiting museums. I always share the activities with my students. I also teach Turkish to young learners. I started to study Child Development at Istanbul University as a second university in 2018. We say in Turkish, “Studies have no age!" If you want to speak Turkish well, please contact me. It is fun, and we will smile during the lesson!
