Teaching French/Russian to kids, students and adults. Teaching French/Russian vocabulary, grammar, literature, history, culture...

I have studied at the French Lyceum Alexandre Dumas in Moscow and have been learning French since birth.

I teach French and Russian to kids, students and adults.

I have been teaching French/Russian since I was 14 years old. I helped my classmates pass their French and Russian exams by teaching them vocabulary and grammar. I have also helped them understand history, French and Russian literature, philosophy...

I have also helped kids learn French/Russian from the beginning while concentrating on broadening their general knowledge.


I have different approaches and techniques depending on my student.

-If I teach French/Russian to a kid, the lesson usually lasts for an hour. We play games, watch short movies, sing songs and discuss his topics of interest. The lesson is highly interactive, and the child is highly involved in the process.

-If I teach French/Russian to a student/adult, the lesson may last up to an hour and a half. Methods vary, depending on the level of proficiency in the language. We talk about different topics of interest and develop speaking and writing skills in a way that is interesting to the student.
If interested, French/Russian literature is studied by authors such as Baudelaire/Tolstoy and Maupassant/Turgenev. We could also converse about French/Russian history, culture and the country's traditions.

About Me

I graduated from a French school where my interest in psychology, especially helping people, has developed.
I have volunteered to teach kids different languages while I was at school (such as Russian and English) and allowed students to have better results at school and during their exams. I have also helped my little sister learn French and Russian, which has influenced me to give lessons to kids.
Now, I am a student at the University of Edinburgh, where I study Business and Psychology.
Interacting with people daily and seeing them perform and succeed makes me happy. Thus, as one of my goals at university, I want to help people become better at something they are unfamiliar with. I want them to gain confidence in themselves and show them they can achieve every goal they set.

Education

I have graduated from the French Lyceum of Moscow in 2022.
I am currently studying at the University of Edinburgh and will complete my Business and Psychology studies in 2026.

Experience / Qualifications

- Teaching French/Russian since I am 14.
- Helping students pass their French/Russian exams.
- Helping kids learn the language.
- Developing a deep interest in French/Russian history, culture and literature.

Practice your French! For beginners, intermediates and experts!
French can be a difficult language to learn, especially if you are not surrounded by it all the time. However, a new language can be a useful for a CV, for University application, or even for your own cultural knowledge and experience. I can provide help with existing homework if you are already at school, and, I can be a source of practice (as practice makes progress!). I am very flexible and we can discuss what you feel you need to study. I will be here to offer advice on different things you can do to improve.

Justine
French class/lessons in Edinburgh (online or at home)
French is a very beautiful language but this one is rather complex. I offer fun learning, adapted to the knowledge of the apprentice. The goal here is to progress by taking the time necessary to memorize each notion. The first course will focus on an assessment of the apprentice's level in order to subsequently offer a personalized program adapted to level.

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.

Fawzi
Succeed in the DELF or DALF (French diploma) - Private preparation sessions | [IN LINE]
My name is Fawzi, and I am a French language teacher. Since 2012, I have been giving private lessons online. My objective is to support learners towards success in the DELF (Diploma of Studies in French Language) or the DALF (Advanced Diploma in French Language), as well as the TCF (French Knowledge Test). I have had the pleasure of helping many students of different nationalities through my online courses. For me, helping enthusiasts practice the French language is an enriching experience, because I understand the importance of success in the lives of ambitious people. I speak Arabic, French, Spanish, a little English and a little Turkish. During my classes, I explain concepts in French, Arabic or Spanish, depending on your preference. At the end of each session, I offer exercises to do as homework, in order to identify your gaps and monitor your progress. Here are some essential points to know about the DELF and DALF: - The DELF (Diploma in French Language Studies) and the DALF (Advanced Diploma in French Language) are two high-quality official diplomas. They are aligned with the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages and cover the following six levels, from the most basic to the most advanced: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2. These diplomas are suitable for all ages and all audiences. - The DELF B2 and, increasingly, the DALF C1, provide access to French, European or French-speaking universities, as well as certain Grandes Ecoles. If you plan to take DELF or DALF exams, or if you want to improve your level, do not hesitate to book your sessions with me to start preparation. I am available !
