Daniel Lopez
Phonetics, pronunciation and conversational English!
Hello, My name is Daniel López. I am a very passionate and creative teacher (English & Spanish) I have experience in different contexts and backgrounds (Teaching teenagers, and University students) I feel very lucky in the sense that I really love what I do. I love teaching!! I hold a Ba degree on TEFL (English Language Teaching), and and a Ma degree on TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) at University of Leicester, England. Additionally, I must mention that I am strongly influenced by the CLT approach and critical thinking models. In other words, I consider that teaching a language must focus not only in grammar and vocabulary but also in communication and interaction. Therefore, speaking, pronunciation, and everything related to the phonological aspect of languages is my interest. Additionally, I would like to outstand the fact that I always work with clear purposes and organized lesson plans, and usually I create my own material in order to achieve specific purposes during the lesson, and because this allows me to be creative and accommodate any topic to your needs and interests. If you need any tutoring in this field, do not hesitate in contacting me! Have a great day.

Soutien Scolaire Collège et Lycée (Toutes Matières)
Actuellement étudiante en Master in Management (Grande École) à l'ESCP Europe sur le campus de Londres, je propose des cours particuliers pour accompagner vos enfants en les aidant à faire leurs devoirs (primaire, collège, lycée; toutes matières confondues). L’année prochaine, j’étudierai à l’École Polytechnique: Master in economics, Data Analytics and Corporate Finance. Après avoir obtenu mon bac scientifique avec mention Très Bien (17.2/20) en 2015, j’ai fait des études d'Économie et de Finance à la Bocconi, à Milan (cursus international enseigné en anglais). Mon parcours académique m'a permis de développer exigence, rigueur et organisation. Ayant également participé à des colonies de vacances en tant qu'encadrante (diplômée du BAFA), je suis très pédagogue, patiente, et soucieuse de faire progresser mes élèves. J’ai plusieurs expériences dans l’enseignement: j'ai donné plusieurs cours particuliers à des collégiens et des étudiants en licence. Par ailleurs, j'ai aidé plusieurs élèves à préparer les admissions à la Bocconi et aux les Grandes Écoles parisiennes. Je partage avec mes élèves mes méthodes de travail et d'apprentissage qui se sont avérées payantes pour moi. Je suis disponible la semaine mais aussi les weekends. N'hésitez pas à me contacter, je serais heureuse de vous aider ! Victoire

Amélie
Cours particuliers en Histoire-Géo, SES et Anglais pour le baccalauréat ES
Etudiante à la London School of Economics (LSE) en Histoire, j'ai obtenu mon baccalauréat ES mention Très bien en 2016. J'ai toujours adoré échanger et transmettre ce que j'ai appris. Ma maman étant professeur d'allemand, je baigne dans le monde de l'enseignement depuis toujours. J'ai commencé à donner des cours particuliers lorsque j'étais au lycée, et je continue encore aujourd'hui. J'aide académiquement et psychologiquement les élèves de terminale ES en Histoire-Géographie, SES et Anglais. J'explique le cours en détails (si besoin), et nous travaillons la méthodologie pour chaque épreuve, l'organisation ainsi que la planification du travail à faire. J'ai par exemple commencé à travailler avec deux élèves en grande difficulté au mois d'avril (moyenne générale autour de 7-8 sur 20), et ces dernières viennent d'obtenir leur bac, dont une avec mention. J'ai également travaillé avec une autre élève l'année précédente, qui a obtenu la mention Très Bien (avec 19/20 en SES).

Philosophy, History, Literature, Theology/ Religious Studies, Ukulele,
MA student with too much information in his head who loves breaking it down into digestible chunks. My class is for the people who 'don't get it' and want it explained simply and accessibly. My classes give students their own understanding of the content with which to confidently approach their exams. I received a 1st in Philosophy and Theology at bachelors level from the University of Nottingham. I am currently studying philosophy at King's College London. Able to run classes on these topics in each field: Philosophy: Philosophy of Religion, Ethics, Political Philosophy, Metaphysics, Philosophy of Mind. History: Tudor England, Elizabethan England, Reformation Europe. Theology/Religious studies: Islam, Christianity, Buddhism. Literature: WW1 literature, Existentialist Literature, Othello. Great Gatsby, A View from the Bridge, Pride and Prejudice. Have been playing the Ukulele for 8 years and so can help students gain competency in the instrument - have access to a lot of material. Also have been learning Arabic for 4 years and can help beginners get set up.
