About Me

Liking to transmit my mother tongue and my knowledge, I pay a lot of attention to the needs of learners while guiding them with enthusiasm and curiosity to the infinite facets of this language and its culture. A language must be alive and shared !
My courses are therefore based on didactic methods, current authentic documents and the exchange of knowledge including inter-cultural.

We work on oral (oral production/conversation) as well as writing (systematic exercises/written production/written comprehension/dictation) as well as oral comprehension (news/reports/videos/radios/podcast/interview, etc.) all through immersive courses in French.

A share of regular work is therefore also required by the student (systematic exercises, learning by oneself, quest for vocabulary and definitions, productions, daily practice) in order to best promote their development in the acquisition of French.

Kindness is essential in my lessons, so don't be afraid to start learning French or improve it ! All in a good mood, I promise you will see your progress ! :)

I have been a Cécile's French course student for a few years already. She is an absolutely excellent teacher. She has a passion for the language, and her deep knowledge of French makes her classes engaging and effective. She uses a combination of tools. She creates a welcoming and supportive learning environment, and her teaching style is fun and informative. I had some level of French before I started with Cécile, but I had big difficulties speaking and understanding natives. Now, it is so much better. I have learned a lot, not only about the French language but also about France. I highly recommend her, she is truly great!
Cécile is very professional, I totally recommend her.
Good first impression! Cécile listens to personal wishes and gives useful exercises.

She is very didactic. Recommended.

Professional contemporary dancer and teacher in Pilates - Carpet from Stott School I give classes combining my practices and my pedagogy to give a time to yourself to listen to your body and better overcome its obstacles, its wounds and strengthen it! These sessions are for beginners who want to discover this practice as advanced to want to open to other approaches. I adapt to the needs of the learner. Structuring of the sessions: * Following a body analysis, a specific body attention will be brought to each one with Pilates exercises of muscular and skeletal reinforcements, tissue tone, flexibility taking into account the natural position of his body and injuries if there are in a. Emphasis on deep breathing to accompany each exercise! * Setting in motion by following lines of cardiovascular exercises, coordination, musicality. If there is interest on your part for this sequel and if the time of the session allows it. This allows an even more complete body work. It is with all the necessary attention, my kindness and a good mood that I will be your guide! Stop judging yourself and instead take care of yourself through movement, breathing because these are vital ;)

Private lessons in French and work methodology
My name is Jonathan. I am a young teacher with already 15 years of experience in the field of academic support for primary and secondary school children up to rhetoric. I also provide individual monitoring for your work method, more particularly in terms of understanding the instructions and the work schedule. If you need a helping hand, I'm here to listen.

Kevin
Non-academic Latin lessons. Multilingual teacher with 9 years of experience. Pronunciation, historical linguistics, conceptual semantics.
Contrary to popular belief, learning Latin is not like learning the phone book by heart. I offer you Latin lessons that are unlike any other. There are two types of courses. Here is an analogy to illustrate their respective approaches: If you take the train back and forth every day and don't have time to wait long at the platform, imagine that you only have two options: 1) Learn the schedules by heart. 2) Note that the train arrives every ten minutes and that a train arrives for example at 7:00 a.m. In school pedagogy, in study notebooks and in ordinary courses, it is the first approach which is adopted - in the courses that I offer you, it is the second because it is more economical and faster. My offer is aimed at both students and adults who want to learn the Latin language or deepen their knowledge without time-consuming detours through the insanities of school methods which do not produce results. Learning is easy but unlearning what has become a bad habit is extremely difficult. All the more important it is to learn the right reflexes as early as possible. With my tailor-made teaching you will accelerate your learning in a positive state of mind. I offer individual or group Latin lessons (2 to 5 people). The methods are based on cognitive sciences and in particular historical linguistics. What will not be the subject of the course: learn lists of verbs; learn lists of nouns with their gender; learn words with their translations; memory card game; doing school exercises; follow the program in a notebook; impose French grammar on the Latin language. What matters to me in particular: motivate my student and give him a learning rhythm; encourage creativity; make friends with language; letters and their sounds strengthen your memory by working on the phonological loop; teach construction plans instead of having people learn sentences by heart; explain how the language works to make my student independent as quickly as possible; breaking preconceived ideas such as the gammatical gender would have a link with the biological gender, the accusative would be a direct complement and the dative an indirect complement, the verbs would be irregular, the declension would be random and therefore to be learned with each verb... ; place practice at the center and articulate grammar around practice. In the context of a first course, you can get a well-founded idea of my pedagogy. I look forward to meeting you.
