Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
From 2016, I also share my passion for the French language and culture with Dutch speakers, English speakers and Spanish speakers
(Language lessons / Conversation groups from 2 to 5 people / Individual).
Due to my experience with the French and Dutch language, I can identify nice "linguistic bridges" between French and Dutch and focus on language structures that are difficult for Dutch people.

Very professional and amicable.
Prima lerares.
Mijn eerste conversatieles begon direct bij binnenkomst - we doen alles in het Frans. Susan is uitnodigend en aanmoedigend. Ze laat je geduldig zoeken naar de juiste woorden, helpt als je echt vastloopt, en daarna geeft ze goede opbouwende feedback en verbeteringen. Het is hard werken maar ik heb in die eerste les al veel geleerd en al wat meer zelfvertrouwen gekregen bij het Frans spreken. Meteen de volgende les gepland!
Het was een zeer leerzame les zoals door Susan gegeven, ze stelt je goed op je gemak en helpt je sprekenderwijs door allerlei zinswendigen en grammar-achtige zaken heen. Ik zie uit naar les 2!
Super docent!

French private lessons: Language and communication [ONLINE]
I am a French teacher, an academician. I have been teaching French, language and communication since 2012. I speak Arabic, French, Spanish, a little English and a little Turkish. I explain my classes in French, in Arabic or in Spanish, according to your choice. During the session I explain the course that suits your needs. There is also the option to create an open discussion so that you can speak fluently over time and avoid grammatical gaps. And at the end of each session, I give "lessons" with "exercises" to do as homework to continue our accompaniment and increase your level.

Italian and french lessons for Children and adults.
Hello everyone ! Researcher at the University of Nice and in the process of completing my doctorate in international relations, I offer French and Italian courses. The objective is naturally to reach the linguistic level sought by the pupil for professional reasons or simply for leisure. Through activities and work using audio, video or written supports, students will be able to develop both their written and oral comprehension skills. I can completely adapt my lessons according to the requests and preferences of the pupils, by orienting the lessons on subjects which interest them particularly without obviously ignoring the basics. Do not hesitate to contact me !

Alejandro & Eléa
Private maths, physics and French lessons and homework help, Tutors 5 years of experience
We are two math and physics tutors and help with homework for all levels up to university. We give our private lessons online via zoom. We have decided to create a common profile in order to best meet the demands of our students and thus ensure the most adequate support according to their profile and expectations. Alejandro: I am a master's student in sustainable development. Before that I obtained my Bachelor in Mechanical Engineering at EPFL. I offer math / physics courses for students who need help to follow their courses as well as those in search of improvement. Elea: I graduated from the school of speech therapy (speech therapy) at La Sorbonne University in Paris in July. Before my training, I obtained my scientific baccalaureate with honors, and completed a year of preparation for speech therapy competitions. I thus have a scientific and literary background allowing me to support your child in all the subjects of his school curriculum. I would like to point out that I am offering private lessons here in a school setting and not speech therapy sessions which are part of the care. Nevertheless, my training allows me to demonstrate a pedagogy taking into account the profile of your child. Comprehensive and methodical, we personalize our lessons to be able to provide solid support to our students. Our courses allow you to acquire methods of reflection and resolution of exercises to better tackle these subjects. Our goal is to help our students gain confidence and skills in the targeted subjects, so they can face the exams with confidence. Are you not convinced of the effectiveness of online courses? We invite you to ask us for more information on the course of the distance learning courses, guaranteeing you a safe learning.

Phillip
Private French lessons with native French speaker in Co. Mayo
I have been tutoring French and English for the past 20 years to students of various ages & origins and of numerous backgrounds: children, teenagers, adults, professionals, and also sometimes even older seniors (85+). Why am I teaching both languages? Well, I’m bilingual and of American & Swiss/French origins, and... I live in Ireland! This is what makes my teaching strong and relevant because I understand both cultures and therefore I can adapt my classes depending on the language of my students. While I was studying social work in French-speaking Switzerland, I was giving French/English private lessons in order to earn a side income. And I genuinely enjoyed it doing it! After I graduated and started working full-time, I didn’t give up this activity because I loved meeting new people and helping them achieve their goals. My teaching is always interactive in order to hold my students’ attention during the whole length of the classes, using numerous learning tools (photos, newspaper articles, music, videos, etc.) Naturally, I will focus on the priority of each student. Some students will want to improve their pronunciation, grammatical, and vocabulary skills, others will need to prepare a presentation or a speech at school/work, while others just want to learn a new language to enrich their general knowledge. And sometimes too, parents want their younger children to master a new language. Thanks to my education and experience with children, I’m also able to run a class dedicated to them! What you will gain from my course is not only good pronunciation and vocabulary/grammar improvement but also a deeper knowledge and understanding of the culture that surrounds one language! When you speak a language it’s important to appreciate the lifestyle, traditions, and heritage of the nation(s) speaking it. Both French and English are spoken in many countries around the world, as primary languages, and with so many different accents: the learning process is unlimited! Before the COVID restrictions, I was mainly teaching face-to-face and with a maximum of four students, but at the moment, I’m only teaching online (one-and-one) on Zoom. Besides that, I’m also a genealogist, I’m running Spiritual Seminars in the West of Ireland and I have a passion for vegetarian & vegan cuisine. I hold a Degree in Early Childhood Education for many years I owned a private “Before & Afterschool” facility for children aged 4 to 12. I’m looking forward to meeting you

Marine
Private lessons of French, grammar and English for middle and high school students
Hello, I am a student who is heading for teaching competitions. I want to give Grammar, English and French lessons to middle school or high school students in difficulty, who need academic support. I am in Montreal, I can give face-to-face lessons in this city only. I can also give private lessons at a distance, if the student does not mind. Note that there is a six hour difference between Quebec and Europe. My lessons will be based on the student's expectations. I will follow his schedule closely so that he understands his course well and does not feel in difficulty when he is in class. These private lessons can be accompanied by homework help and a deepening of the subjects covered in class. I listen to the student and the family to understand the specific needs of each.

Vincent
French lessons given by a motivated and motivating teacher!
Teacher for more than seven years in Geneva, I am passionate about my work and, in general, by the French language. I can help you in language as in literature; together we will find the means for you to progress. My goal is to give meaning to knowledge and to show that we can study French while having fun! I also have a master's degree in modern French, general history and French didactics. I offer weekly monitoring through an online platform, so you can measure your progress and practice outside of lessons. I like to offer several means of learning, from the most basic (doing exercises, copying sentences) to the most modern (playing small games, watching videos ...). It all depends on the student and their expectations. No method is imposed; the important thing is that you feel good and that you can familiarize yourself with the tools adapted to your profile. It is quite possible for me to help with the writing / correction of work, to finish; I will not do them for you of course, but can provide you with the support and follow-up you need to make them happen. See you soon !

Olivia
IB program for international students in French or English
Bonjour, my name is Olivia and I have a Master in teaching French language as well as the certification for the IB program (bilingual exam) for foreign high-school students. For the past 9 years I have taught at International Schools and given private tuition to students of different ages. My main topic is the preparation of the IB program for high-school students including IGCSE, AB initio, Language B and language A, Standard level or high level. The principal parts of the IB program are developing the skills of understanding a context and a topic, as well as being able to give an opinion; speaking and writing are important but if you don't know what you are talking about, no language would be helpful to you. When I teach I always make sure that we reflect on the designated subject and we look for appropriate words to express it....Thinking before talking is one of the golden rule of the IB program For the past 20 years, I've lived in Asia and taught different nationalities therefore I have developed an inspiring and interactive method to teach French language taking into account the personality of each student, not everyone learn at the same pace I hope to meet you soon

Lucie
Classes de francés (ONLINE) - French lessons (ONLINE) - French lesson (ONLINE)
ESP - Hola, soy Lucie y me encantaría ayudarte a aprender francés, que sea principiante más avanzado. Me encanta hacer mis estudiantes hablar porque pienso que la práctica es el segredo para aprender un idioma o mejorar tu conocimiento. Siempre organizo mis clases por temas inspirados en la vida cotidiana (como presentarse, como hacer una cita, ir de compras, una cita con el medico, francés profesional, etc.). Haremos ejercicios de gramática, vocabulario y de pronunciación. Se tienes el nível intermedio, haremos clases con artigos para que puedas hablar. Así pondremos la gramática y el vocabulario en práctica. Y pueda dar clases in español (o portuñol). EN - Hi, I'm Lucie and I would be glad to help you learn French, be it from scratch or to help you improve. I love to make my students speak since I strongly believe that practice is the key to learn a language and to improve your knowledge. I always structure my lessons according to subjects based on daily life situations (how to introduce yourself, how to make an appointment, shopping / grocery, going to the doctors, professional language, etc). We'll go through the grammar, vocab, and pronunciation. If you're intermediate, we'll also do some lessons about reading comprehensions. We'll put both the grammar and vocab in practice. And hey, I can teach in English if you want! FR - Hi, I'm Lucie and I would be delighted to help you learn French, whether it's from zero or to improve your knowledge. I love getting my students to speak since I think practice is the secret to learning a language and improving knowledge. I always structure my classes according to themes based on real life (how to introduce myself, how to make an appointment, do the shopping, go to the doctor, French at work, etc.). We will see together grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. If you are intermediate, we will also do text lessons. We will put both grammar and vocabulary into practice.

Candice
Private lessons of French as a foreign language for all levels
I offer French as a foreign language courses for all levels. French is my mother tongue, and, as a translator, my daily working language. My methodology is based mainly, but not only, on the learning of dialogues in French, which will allow the student, gradually, to acquire vocabulary, to understand the grammar and to fix the linguistic structures in his head. I also offer oral conversation classes for anyone who wants to express themselves in French more fluently and improve their oral comprehension of the language. I also adapt to the specific requests of pupils or students. The course is given by videoconference (Skype, Teams, Zoom, WhatsApp, etc.)
