About Me

I am an outgoing, encouraging and understanding teacher. I really enjoy engaging with students on topics that are interesting and relevant to them. I am very patient and work at your pace but I also work hard to ensure that my students make good progress in a reasonable period of time. Often, students have good written English but struggle with conversational English when they travel abroad, study abroad or work in international companies.

In my personal life, I am a master's student at the London School of Economics in the UK. This has given me a good insight into the standard for international students. I also have experience working in management consultancy.

Education

MSc Development Management, London School of Economics, ongoing
Bachelor of Commerce Honours: Economics, University of Cape Town, 2016
Bachelor of Commerce: Politics, Philosophy and Economics, University of Cape Town, 2013-2015

Experience / Qualifications

I have taught English and worked in management consultancy for two economics firms.

In 2016-2017 I lived and worked in Mainland China (Chengdu) and then later in Hong Kong. I taught English to students between the ages of 4-13. In Chengdu I worked for Phinnie Education and in Hong Kong I worked for Monkey Tree English Learning Centre. I have also taught English online to students from Korea.

Tanya
Italian with a polyglot (8 languages) and Professional teacher(language coach)
Hay!! :-) Hi! I'm Tanya. I was born in Italy, but for the last two years of my life I have traveled the world, mainly in Central and South America and the Middle East, traveling and working remotely. I am a professional teacher with 6 years of experience. Italian is my native language. I worked on the translation of medical and legal articles, panels in the glass museum in Venice and worked as an interpreter at the court of Venice. I have a degree in languages, certified in international law and I am a language coach. Language coach means that I not only teach you a language, but also how to learn new languages! :-D I will closely monitor and monitor your entire learning journey, to get the most out of your skills! That's because I love learning new languages! That's why after years of studying I became a polyglot (8 languages - Italian, English, Spanish, French, Japanese, Arabic, Hebrew, Dutch) and I came up with a method to teach you the language you want to learn! Over the years I have learned to model my work according to the personal needs of each student and have developed a method that allows my students to learn the language in a fast and fun way. My hobby is my greatest passion is learning other languages, therefore from my experience I can understand many of the problems associated with learning a foreign language. I am also a language coach, which means that my lessons are based on a specific method that I have designed to facilitate and accelerate learning. My classes are available in Italian, English, Spanish, French, Hebrew, Dutch and Arabic. GROUP LESSONS possible! See you soon! :-)

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.

Private lessons many subjects (school period and holidays) college-high school level
I offer weekly lessons or internship revisions, remediation by skills, upgrading for high school students, in several subjects: mathematics, French, English, German, SVT (from the 1st, see my other announcement), scientific education and philosophy (mainly subject analysis). Associate professor currently available from the National Education for family reasons (I am therefore no longer in a post in an establishment since 01/09/2021 and am no longer an employee of the EN), I have a double course literary and scientific and gives private tutoring in many subjects in video under autoentrepreneur status. With 10 years of teaching experience in secondary school, with several bac juries to my credit, and many years of experience of private lessons (including 3 years in main activity during a previous availability), I offers you my help in these different disciplines, which I am used to teaching in private lessons and which I have sometimes been asked to teach in the context of short-term replacements in college (replacements for colleagues from English and French late in having replacements appointed to their posts). My classes combine rigor and benevolence, professionalism, dynamism and humor, according to my former students, when they mention the help that I was able to provide them. I am used to working with multi-dys, AD / HD, high potential and Asperger's students as well. I insist a lot on scientific methodology and the quality of writing, in science as in literary subjects. I can help you optimize your learning and memorization techniques, help you get to the point, make mental maps. We will also work on the general organization of your work if necessary. I also and above all want to pass on to you my pleasure of learning, which continues to inspire me even today. Having given private lessons for a long time in person at home, I now want to focus on Visio lessons on Zoom, Skype, or any other videoconferencing software. I have been practicing video-format lessons since March 2020 and since then have been more equipped to ensure greater comfort for my students: headphones with microphone (quality sound), graphics tablet connected to an interactive whiteboard, camera-viewer of documents, front lighting reducing unpleasant shadows, Véléda paintings behind me. Small group lessons are also possible. If your child has a classmate who is having difficulty in the same subject, or his or her older sibling needs the same kind of help, it is possible. In this case, the price is decreasing for each participant. Please respect the reserved hours. The courses are adjustable in advance. Any course canceled less than 24 hours in advance is due at 50%. Indeed, the time that I could waste managing multiple cancellations and rescheduling of courses is time that I cannot put to the service of the success of my students. In addition, the presence of a framework, of operating rules is necessary for the investment of the students who engage in a process of accompaniment. So, I also ask you to be punctual and to start your computer and your videoconferencing software a few minutes in advance in order to start the session on time, not to waste precious minutes of class (the session will end at the time initially scheduled ... 10 minutes late means 10 minutes of lost lessons) and to respect the students who have lessons after you. I look forward to meeting you and bringing you my help and expertise.
