About Me

Bonjour !

I’m a native French student in English studies and I have been a tutor for four years now, to students from the age of 9 to 18 with various learning profiles (dyspraxia, autism, dyslexia).

As a future teacher, the most important thing for me is to learn how to adapt to the students needs and ways of learning. There is no one perfect way to learn a language, and my goal is to help you or your child to find out more about yourself/themself and how your/their brain works ! I also give organisation courses if required, alongside methodology. I take some time to analyse your manner or organizing your studies and give you advice and help to make the most of your time.

I had my French baccalaureat in Economics with honours. I am fluent in English and has the IELTS certificate at 8 level.

Education

In 2019 I passed my French baccalauréat in social studies and economics with a global grade of 18.1/20 (Honours). At the end of the year I will graduate in English Studies (Bachelor), more precisely in Literature and History. I am currently in international exchange at the University of Edinburgh.

Experience / Qualifications

Since I graduated high school I started tutoring students from the age of 9 to 18 alongside my studies. I helped students with special needs and will personalised my teaching if you or your child are concerned.

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.

Nicholas
Tutoring in English, French, or Latin for beginners and advanced learners alike
I am proficient in English, French, and Latin. If you would like one-on-one assistance with any of these languages, feel free to get in touch with me. As a linguist I am happy to provide 'deep' explanations of each language's grammar and phonetics should you ask for them.

Elbert
Utopia and Touch: An Introduction to Utopian and Dystopian Literature
Utopian Studies extends the notion from Thomas More's Utopia to the emergence of dystopian literature, highlighting the connection between fictionalized literary works and reality. The seminar is designed for students with advanced reading skills as the primary readings are mainly novels. Students are expected to carry out individual research. Further readings (journals, academic papers, etc) will be provided to support the discussion during the class. Provisional reading list: Utopia by Thomas More News from Nowhere by William Morris The Time Machine by H.G. Wells High-Rise by J.G. Ballard Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood

Gabrielle
French language as foreign language lessons at any level
In this class I can provide foundation french lessons in speaking, reading, writing and listening. Depending on what you wish to achieve the lessons will be altered to fit your needs. I try to create a relaxed environment while keeping the lessons as rich as possible so you get the best experience.

Marie-Lou
French course (French native speaker), flexible hours (German course also possible)
You'll learn and improve your French skills (oral, written and comprehension but also pronunciation). We can work with help of materials such as books, music or movies. The point is to have fun by learning this language and discovering another culture. German course also available: based on the same model as the French course.

Zenda
Trained & Certified Teacher - English Literature (Poetry, Prose, Drama)

Estel
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.

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.

Alexandra
Tutor of French and Primary School Homework Help :)
I have been an examiner for AQA and am familiar with both AQA and Edexcel GCSE and A-level specifications, having taught the Edexcel spec before. I have tutored French to children (beginner to bilingual) and adults. The planning and delivery of my classes will be dependent on the individual needs of my students. I have also worked as a primary school teacher and am an excellent teacher of primary school maths and English.

Hi! My name is Marie and I am a native French speaker, offering classes for all levels. Whether you are preparing for an exam, wanting to develop you language skills or trying to catch up on your school homework, we can make lessons work for you. I have a collection of personalisable course material at my disposal, extracted from recent example of French-speaking culture, to use as a starting point for each class. It could be either short videos, news articles, book extracts, depending on your level, your interests, and your goals. From this, we will be able to work on all four language competencies: written and oral comprehension, as well as written and oral expression. And who knows, we might even be able to find you a penpal to practice you newly acquired skills. Book now for session with me!

Hana
I teach Spanish and French lessons for children between the ages 7-12 and 13-17.
I love to each in a dinamic way using songs or making up games. I always ask my students how do they want to learn because I think it's really important that they feel comfortable and it's my objects motivate them to learn languages because they are really important in today's world.

Reuben
German language (or literature) lessons (beginner, intermediate and advanced) from native speaker
This class is for anyone who wishes to learn German from someone with native level skills. Whether it is to learn the basics as a beginner or to hone essay-writing skills. Can comfortably adapt to any curriculum (IB, A-Level, GCSE). Alternatively, if desired, I can help develop more analytical literary skills and give guidance on how to study German Literature. In both cases, I prioritise verbal dialogue as well as writing tasks, particularly for more advanced levels. I am very flexible when it comes to the structure of lessons/their intensity and feel it is usually best to discuss this on an individual basis.

Luciano
Qualified Italian student giving Latin and Ancient Greek lessons in Edinburgh.
I am studying Social Anthropology and Politics at the University of Edinburgh. Classics are one of the biggest interests of mine; I started studying Latin and Ancient Greek languages and literature 6 years ago and I have been teaching for three years. I think studying these languages led me to be more aware of who I am as well as understand what is really worth. Latin (Ancient greek too) lessons consist of two different parts: grammar and literature. By studying grammar you are not going to just receive boring notions about the structure of the language, but you are going to deepen processes and rules that form Latin; with this method we are going to discuss about Latin and Greek mindset and then discuss about important themes studied by ancient people in literature. Furthermore, according to your needs and goals, we can exercise on translation of texts.

Jonathan
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.
