About Me

Hi!
I'm a politics and history student at the University of Melbourne in Australia, currently spending time in Taiwan with my family. I have a strong background in international relations and humanities, and have experience teaching in classrooms and one-on-one.
I provide engaging, fun, and stimulating lessons with the aim of improving English conversational and writing skills and broadening your knowledge of topics ranging from the United Nations to ancient Egypt.

I specialise in offering conversational English classes delving into topics such as history and politics, and can help you with:
- Writing
- Speaking (Australian accent!)
- Proofreading
- And more!

Students are advised to have a reasonable understanding of the English
language however, I am fluent in Mandarin and can adapt to your needs if you aren't as confident.

Please message me if you have any questions, and I would be happy to chat!

Education

University of Melbourne, 2019-2022
Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Politics and International Studies
Second Class Honours A
Subjects include Public Policy Making, Environmental Law, and International Human Rights Law.

Experience / Qualifications

1 year private tutoring experience, involving virtual meetings and providing written feedback on essays.
1 year classroom teaching experience
Are you looking to develop your conversational English skills and while also learning about fascinating periods in history? This class is for you! I am a history minor at the University of Melbourne, with a specific focus on revolutions. This class will take you in depth into the causes and consequences of revolutions, while developing your speaking and writing skills.
Learning how to write and structure essays can be daunting, especially in another language, but it doesn't have to be! In this class, we will break down how to structure your papers and improve your writing skills, whether it be academic or persuasive writing. I have at least three years of experience providing feedback for written pieces and developing students' writing ability, and will hopefully provide a friendly, encouraging environment for learning.
Human rights are a difficult topic to discuss, and yet it is so often used in everyday discourse. In this class, we will try to understand what human rights mean, outline the international framework of human rights protection, and investigate whether or not the world has successfully protected human rights. We will focus on case studies to develop analytical and writing skills, and the language needed to discuss human rights. You will leave this class with an enhanced understanding of human rights, and international legal system, in depth knowledge of specific case studies, and improved ability to discuss human rights in English.
Climate change is quickly becoming the defining issue of the century. In this class, we will investigate the phenomenon of global warming, how it came to be, and what we are doing to fix it. We will discuss international politics, environmental law, and proposed solutions to climate change. We will analyse the behaviour of international actors and investigate why climate change is such a difficult issue to fix. Finally, we will delve into an Australian case study of environmental protection. This class will give you the language needed to discuss climate change and international environmental law, and enrich your knowledge of the topic.
As the world becomes increasingly interconnected, understanding of international relations and politics is also increasingly important. In this series of classes, we will discuss the international political landscape, power, and history. You will learn the language of international relations, develop an understanding of international actors, and analyse power relations worldwide.

I have a diploma in International Business Management from Northumbria University, and studied abroad in Sweden and Portugal and therefore know how important and daunting learning a language can be.

Mark
Professor of National Education, author of school textbook, 25 years of experience.
***** Availability update made on 09/01/2020. Valid until further notice ***** I offer you my services in order to make you truly effective orally / in writing in English. If you have to use English in the course of your professional activity and you don't get comfortable with it ... If you are tired of being spotted immediately as French ... If you don't know still not when to use the present perfect / preterite .... I'm here to help you and make you progress. * Linguist by training and author of school textbook in this capacity. Note that I am not this young student who had a good mark in the Baccalaureate or this other who is supposedly bilingual. I have been teaching as a teacher in the National Education since 1995 and I can tell you that teaching cannot be improvised. It is not an activity that we do "like that". I offer you my expertise and my experience. By the way, to have 10/20 in the Baccalaureate, it is enough to have the A2 level (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd year) so I let you imagine the desperation of future engineers who must obtain at least 750 in the TOEIC! (the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course is prepared according to your needs. Feedback is always given. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, connections ... Oral grammar. * Adaptation to all levels: from college to post-baccalaureate through high school. => Post-bac: preparation for TOEIC, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First-Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Orals and writings from grandes écoles such as ENA => Orals and writings from business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...)

Private lessons for German - English - French
The student informs me of the concepts he wishes to see or review in French, German and / or English; I adapt and agree to give him a course of the best possible quality, as well as to provide him with exercises and advice adapted to his needs. I have completed my Bachelor in Multilingual Communication (Faculty of Translation and Interpretation of the University of Geneva) and am available to help other students and to share my knowledge with them. I started learning German over 15 years ago and have also completed numerous language stays in Germany, including a semester as an au pair with daily language lessons and an Erasmus semester as part of of my Bachelor. Furthermore, I have been speaking German daily in my private life for over two years now. As for English, I started learning it over 10 years ago; I also did a semester in Liverpool with daily lessons in a language school and have continued to practice it ever since, both personally and at university. I have obtained an official certificate attesting to my level of German (telc Deutsch C1 Hochschule), as well as a certificate attesting to my level of English (Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English - C1). Regarding French, it is my mother tongue and I am improving it day by day, particularly as part of my training as a translator at the University of Geneva. Ps: During the lockdown linked to Covid-19, I continued to give online lessons (via Skype); these classes went very well and were just as effective as the in-person classes. Given the current circumstances and because I no longer live in Geneva, I offer online courses (via Skype and with the help of other IT tools). I look forward to helping you in your learning process and passing on my passion for languages to you through our meetings! We look forward to meeting you soon! Elodie
