This class aids undergraduate theology students in theory and material pertaining to their degree. I can help with the general and critical understanding of theory, as well as essay guidance and examination preparation.
I received an M.A (Hons) in Theology from the University of Edinburgh and I chose to specialise particularly in Islamic Studies and politicised religion, though I am happy to assist in covering all aspects of theology.

About Me

I am a young and energetic teacher who is academically-minded and enjoys discussing topics relating to literature, history, theology and politics. I like to keep my lessons discussion-based when grappling with ideas to ensure the students are able to think for themselves and articulate their understanding of a subject. In addition to this, I like to use writing, reading, performance and videos in my lessons to maximise the student's engagement with the topics, and keep it fun and interesting.

I have experience teaching English, IT and History at a prestigious boarding school in Lebanon, where I taught both classes of children aged 8-11 and one-on-one learning support classes for children aged 8-18. I also have experience teaching children with learning difficulties and naturally, I have received extensive Child Protection Training and DBS Certifications.

Depending on the level, will taper the English tuition to best suit the need of the English student. I have taught English as a foreign language in schools to ages 8-18, but I am willing to teach anyone from pre-school level to adults. I am able to focus on any particular facet of the English Language from speaking and reading to the use of vocabulary and grammar in writing.
I specialise in tutoring Religious Studies (including Philosophy and Ethics) to GCSE and A-Level for secondary school students to help. I am able to cover topics from all major examination boards (AQA, OCR, Edexcel etc) and help students prepare for examinations, essay writing and just generally understanding.
I specialise in tutoring History to students at GCSE and A-Level. I am familiar with all major examination boards (AQA, OCR, Edexcel etc.) and I can adapt my tutoring to best serve examination practice, essay writing or general understanding of topics. I specialise particularly in Middle Eastern and Islamic History, though I have taught American History and World History in schools before.

Basic knowledge of Islam for both the born Muslim, the convert and the interested in Islam.
Basic knowledge about Islam: Doctrine ('Aqeedah): - The Muslim believes in Allah. Who is that? - The Muslim believes in the Angels. Who are they? and who created them? - The Muslim believes in all the heavenly books. Which are they? - The Muslim believes in all prophets. Also in Jesus and Moses. How is that possible? - The Muslim believes in the Last Day. What does that mean? What comes after this day? - The Muslim believes in fate. Is everything already described? Did everything have to happen to us the way it happened? Jurisprudence (Fiqh): - (in the making)

If you are interested in learning more about Quran and Hadith studies, you can check out online Quran and hadees and tafseer
Quran and Hadith are two of the most important sources of Islamic teachings and guidance. They are often studied together in various courses and programs. Here is a brief overview of what they are and how they differ: - Quran is the holy book of Islam, containing the words of Allah as revealed to Prophet Muhammad through the angel Gabriel. Quran is considered the direct, unaltered, and infallible word of God. Quran has 114 chapters (surahs) and over 6,000 verses (ayahs) that cover various topics such as faith, worship, law, morality, history, and science. Quran is written in classical Arabic and has a unique style and structure. Quran is recited and memorized by Muslims in its original language, and has been translated into many other languages. Quran is also the subject of various disciplines of scholarship, such as exegesis (tafsir), recitation (qira'at), and hermeneutics. - Hadith refers to the sayings, actions, and approvals of Prophet Muhammad, as reported by his companions and later scholars. Hadith serves as a secondary source of Islamic teachings after the Quran, and provides guidance on how to implement the Quranic principles in various situations. Hadith has various collections and classifications, depending on the authenticity and reliability of the narrators and the chains of transmission (isnad). Hadith is also the basis of various fields of Islamic sciences, such as jurisprudence (fiqh), theology (kalam), ethics (akhlaq), and history (sirah).

Living philosophy session for children and adults
Trained in literary preparatory classes, then in a master's degree in Philosophy of Art at La Sorbonne, I passed the oral and written tests of CAPES in 2016. Since then, I have continued to support students of all ages, online and in person, keen to let students' own thoughts express themselves by giving them the methodological keys and references that enrich their initial intuition. In line with the Greek philosophical schools, philosophy sessions are done in the form of a dialogue, maintaining the mind in a dynamic and interpersonal attitude. Philosophy is very much alive and it is my joy to share it with my students!

Julien
Teacher-researcher at the university (United States) gives courses in French as a foreign language (FLE) and philosophy.
My passion for teaching has led me to study different languages and teach my mother tongue, French, for many years. Originally from Paris, I currently teach, and have done for several years, French as a foreign language in an American University (R1 - Top 25 US News ranking). I also carry out research work there on the philosophy of language which, combined with the various training courses followed in this prestigious establishment, has allowed me to acquire solid experience in teaching French (from A1 to C2, Cadre common European reference for languages). Today, I support students in their mastery of the language in an efficient manner and by adapting to the deadlines imposed on them in achieving their objectives. Thus, many of them who started learning French with me were admitted to prestigious French-speaking university programs (La Sorbonne, Sciences Po, Fulbright...). My teaching is focused on a 360 approach, taking into consideration the most recent studies on the acquisition of foreign languages and innovative teaching techniques. It is based on an immersive and multimedia method (podcasts, series, films, newspapers, etc.). My classes are done entirely in French and in a progressive manner, adapting to each person's rhythms. The main thing for me is to take into consideration the requests of my students, to listen to their needs and their desires. I pay particular attention to the specificities of learning necessary for each person; the emphasis may be placed on orality, visual aspect and/or grammar. In short, I design tailor-made courses to ensure that you achieve your objectives and discover the richness of French-speaking cultures! Philosophy course My training as a philosopher (La Sorbonne; Sciences Po), and my passion for this discipline have also allowed me to give philosophy courses for 10 years already. My teaching focuses on one of the aspects sometimes neglected when preparing for the baccalaureate or university exams: methodology. Methodological questions allow students to obtain the grades they desire. The transmission of my passion for this discipline, through the exploration of the interests of my students, makes my teaching come alive. Philosophy is everywhere: we will therefore base ourselves on your passions to nourish your dissertations and make your learning more fulfilling. Together we will explore the beauty of philosophy so that you can fully enjoy it!
