French lessons: conversations, grammar, reading

Translated by Google. Click to view original.
I lived for almost 15 years in Paris (in a French family) and defended my doctoral thesis in philology and literature at the Sorbonne University.
French became my first professional language and second native language.

Passionate about the French language, I would like to share my experiences and teach you this beautiful language:
- communication for daily life,
- corrections of articles in French,
- immersion in literature,
- lots of other learning methods...

I always adapt to your interests and goals!

Maxim helped me a lot in the lecture to improve my french prononciation, which is my weak point. He was always quite patient and provided me important feedbacks so i can improve. For my specific question he even found better teaching material to explain. I really enjoyed all the lectures and am proud of the progress i could make with Maxim's help.

Doctor of Philology (Sorbonne), PhD in Classics (KU Leuven), I'm interested in Greek Byzantine philology and paleogaphy, New Testament manuscript tradition, history of Byzantium. I'm now based on the UK (Glasgow). Les cours sont dispensés en anglais, français et russe. Tous les niveaux. Ancien and Byzantine Greek: - grammar, - reading Classical textes, - Christian authors and Church Fathers, - paleography : study of Byzantine manuscripts Ma méthode consiste à combiner dès le début la théorie grammaticale et la pratique textuelle. Je propose d'étudier le grec ancien et byzantin sous différentes facettes : lecture des manuscrits médiévaux, grammaire, lecture et commentaires des textes antiques et religieux. Уроки по древнегреческому византийскому языку: изучение рукописей, чтение текстов из Библии, Святых Отцов и Литургии. Вход в Православное Христианство!
Russian (native speaker): I offer lessons for all levels: grammar, conversation, litterature... Language is my passion. I obtained the degree of Doctor in the Faculty of Philology at the Sorbonne University, then a PhD in Classics at KU Leuven. In Russia I also got the pedagogical diploma. Currently I am doing my research on philology and palaeography in Glasgow University. I really like teaching the Russian language; we can tackle different aspects: communicating to travel, expressing in everyday life, but also reading literature, understanding the etymology and rapprochements of Russian with other languages. My method is complete immersion, structure and progression according to the rhythm of each student. I have all the necessary materials for the courses, but you can always bring your own textbooks. Feel free to contact me for any details!

French lessons for beginners or experienced, for children as well as adults.
Hello, Student in an engineering school in France, I come to do my last year in exchange in Glasgow. Having already taught mathematics for private lessons, I will be able to adapt to your learning needs. Having learned English (level C1), Spanish (level B2 in writing, C1 in oral) and having notions of Portuguese, I am used to working languages and have a good knowledge of effective methods.

Learn French or English from beginner to advance, for children and adults
As a tutor, I adopt a personalised and empathetic teaching style. My goal is to build trust with students of all ages, from children to adults. For French tutoring, I focus on conversational practice, vocabulary, and cultural nuances. As an English TEFL tutor, I emphasise real-world scenarios, grammar, speaking fluency, and listening comprehension. I assign homework weekly to assess the students learning skills and periodic progress reports monthly to see the students learning growth. Throughout, I maintain a positive and supportive tone to motivate and engage my students with fun and active activities.

Private and personalized lessons at home to learn the French language
French is a difficult language, certainly, but it is a very beautiful language. I therefore propose to give you lessons to improve your level. The courses I propose combine written practice and oral practice which will allow you to progress as quickly as possible.

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.

French courses for students in school and students who would like to improve in the language.
French is one of the most influential languages in the world. Knowing how to speak, read and write it while understanding the significant accuracy of the words used is an asset that unfortunately very few master. My lessons are based on my student's expectations, the areas in which he wants to work will be implemented.

Mohamed

With 20 years of experience in education and a learner-centered approach, I aim to make learning French accessible and effective.

More concretely, I provide support in the form of note-taking templates before each lesson, which includes: • Progressive exercises corresponding to four levels of mastery from simple to complex, • Links to relevant activities/exercises/videos related to the content. After teaching a sequence of content, I propose a learning situation that simulates a real-life experience integrating all learned elements.
