    About Me

    I am a native Italian speaker and a fluent English speaker. I have also studied languages for years, specialising in Mandarin and Chinese literature and history. Having a passion for languages, I decided to self learn Spanish and obtain a D.E.L.E. language certificate.

    I love to teach languages as they are something I am passionate about, and I look forward to helping new students get better at them. I believe learning languages and other cultures/traditions is an extremely helpful skill, as it challenges the understanding of what is different to you.

    My goal is to pass on my love for languages to my students and help them learn a new language effectively. I regularly assign homework to ensure the students' understanding of the subject and help them learn better.

    Private lessons of French as a foreign language for all levels
    Trained as a translator with five years of experience, particularly in international institutions in Europe and America, I offer French as a foreign language courses for all levels. French is my mother tongue, and, as a translator, my daily working language. My methodology will depend on the level of the pupil or the student. If the pupil or the student is a beginner, I will teach him the bases of the French language (vocabulary, pronunciation, basic grammar). If the pupil or student already has an intermediate or advanced level, I will make him progress through activities that will focus on several aspects (simple dialogues, writing, etc.). I also offer oral conversation classes for anyone who wants to express themselves in French more fluently and improve their oral comprehension of the language. I also adapt to the specific requests of pupils or students. The course can be done face-to-face at my home or by videoconference (Skype, Teams, Zoom, WhatsApp, etc.)

    Cours en ligne. Professeur de FLE diplômée, la technologie au service de l’apprentissage.
    LES TECHNOLOGIES AU SERVICE DE L'APPRENTISSAGE. Bonjour, Je m’appelle Laurie et je suis professeur de FLE indépendante, diplômée en Langues et Littératures françaises et romanes depuis 2012. J’ai cinq années d’expérience à mon actif (à l’étranger et en Belgique). J’ai créé LangMethod, méthode d’apprentissage pour les cours en ligne. Le cours inclut: -Le matériel (articles, vidéos, exercices à partir d’images et de textes, théorie grammaticale, liens vers les exercices…). J’utilise google doc, l’idéal est donc d’avoir une adresse gmail pour pouvoir y accéder. -La correction des exercices en dehors du cours (les expressions écrites sont corrigées en dehors du cours, ou avec l’élève, en fonction de ses besoins). -L’accès à une application (gratuitement) pour étudier le vocabulaire sur votre smartphone. -Une fiche de vocabulaire - prononciation - grammaire/conjugaison, envoyée après chaque cours. -Si nécessaire, un enregistrement du vocabulaire (pour les débutants). -La réalisation d’exercices en ligne et de tests à partir des fiches de vocabulaires envoyées. -De la motivation, des rires, de la bonne humeur :-) Ma méthode: -Elle est basée sur l’oral. -Pour la grammaire, j’utilise une méthode question/réponse (apprise lors d’une formation au centre CERAN). -Nous travaillons la prononciation avec la méthode verbotonal (exercices pour poser sa voix, pour la rythmique, etc.). Je te ferai même peut-être chanter! :-) -Tout passe par l’oral avant de passer par l’écrit mais je m’adapte évidemment aux besoins des élèves. -Le cours est un peu différent pour les enfants et adolescents: j’utilise des jeux interactifs et des cartes via la webcam. A bientôt! Laurie NB: Possibilité de faire une facture pour les particuliers ou les entreprises.

    Individualized German Online Tutoring for Business, School and Private
    I am currently teaching German on a one on one base through individualized online teaching via zoom or any other online platform. I teach German grammar as well as conversational German and German for business and/or research. Please don't hesitate contact me to find out more about my teachings by asking questions and letting me know about your goals and concerns. I not only speak German as my mother tongue, but I also have excellent English skills and have taught adults and children in Japan, the USA and France. While living in Japan, I taught English to biologists of a biotech-company. For this purpose, I prepared current newspaper articles corresponding to the interests of the students and the teaching objectives for the classes. In class, the students and I used these articles to study the language, discuss the vocabulary and grammar as well as the language style used. In New York, I did not teach a language, but fashion design at the University (FIT Fashion Institute of Technology, NYC) for several years. All classes were taught in English with the student body consisting of international students, which required detailed preparation of the class. At the High School of Fashion Industries (HSFI), also in NYC, I taught fashion design and creation to students grade 9 - 12. Here too, the lessons were exclusively taught in English. For my teachings, I developed daily detailed lesson plans to not only make sure that the predetermined class goals were easily reached, but also to ensure that the class content was tailored to the students' needs and that a positive learning climate was promoted.

    Turkish Lessons (In-Person OR Online) for Adults and Kids from an Experienced and Patient Teacher For All Levels-Learn&Practice&Speak!
    I have been teaching Turkish for 17 years. I started to teach when I was studying Turkish Language and Literature. I worked in a language school and at the universities, I suppose that I gained success. 😊 My achievements are directly proportional to my students’ success. My students are mostly teachers, consulate officers, international business people, and also travelers. I feel rewarded when I witness their progress in applying their Turkish language skills to their daily lives. Over the years, I have met hundreds of people from all over the world, taught Turkish, and told them about Istanbul and Turkey. Those people told me about their countries and learned to express themselves in Turkish. For example, I ask them: “Do you like Istanbul?” in Turkish it is “İstanbul’u surveyor museum?” or “ Traffic is very bad in Istanbul!”, “İstanbul’ da çok Trafik var!” The basic but correct conversation is really important for self-confidence in any language. If a learner can master basic sentence forms, the rest will come much easier. On the other hand, making mistakes is also very important. Especially, a learner can not speak without making a mistake the first and second time. My students are always varied and have diverse learning skills. My professionalism also allows me to tailor language education according to individual interests, needs, and capacities. In the classroom, I hold firm three main principles: first, providing a comfortable environment, second, creating an encouraging atmosphere, and third, establishing a collaborative instruction model. I consider that I developed an aptitude for making learning Turkish to become much easier, enjoyable, and practical for my students. I use a book prepared by a university in Turkey. I share the pdf version of the book for my lessons. I also adapt the materials according to the learner’s needs and support the book with my authentic materials. Even though I use a communicative approach, all my lessons are guided by a solid knowledge of grammar. On the online lessons, I send an e-mail after every lesson. That word file includes a vocabulary list, sentences (corrected and uncorrected versions, you can compare both of them easily), grammar point,s and homework for revision. In this way, you can find everything in a file well organized. When we have a face to face lesson, I give a hard copy of this list after every lesson. The lessons could be at my home office or in my student's house or office. I sometimes meet with my students in a coffee shop, I try to prefer silent places. :) How learning a new language opens a new window into a person, teaching Turkish is also the same for me! I was always interested in languages - I could speak a bit of Italian and learned Persian grammar except English. I always think about Istanbul -I was born and grew up here- it is a good place for self-improvement. First and foremost, Istanbul hosts international people coming from around the world. It is considering to me, I am lucky because I have one of the pleasant professions. When teaching Turkish, promoting cross-cultural awareness forms an important part of my lessons. Teaching the language involves both the students and myself in a dynamic conversation about our cultural backgrounds. Teaching Turkish is in fact not only teaching a language but also teaching a culture. I am interested in cinema, music and like visiting museums. I always share the activities with my students. I also teach Turkish to young learners. I started to study Child Development at Istanbul University as a second university in 2018. We say in Turkish, “Studies have no age!" If you want to speak Turkish well, please contact me. It is fun, and we will smile during the lesson!
