Phillip
Private French lessons for adults and teenagers with native French speaker in Co. Mayo
For the past two decades, I've had the privilege of tutoring in both French and English. My students have ranged in age, background, and origin, spanning children, teenagers, adults, professionals, and even seniors aged 85 and above. You might wonder why I teach both languages. Well, I am bilingual, with American and Swiss/French roots, and I currently reside in Ireland. This unique blend of experiences equips me with a strong and relevant teaching approach. I possess an intimate understanding of both cultures, enabling me to tailor my classes to the specific needs of my students. My teaching journey began during my time studying social work in French-speaking Switzerland. I started offering private French and English lessons to supplement my income, and I quickly discovered my passion for it. Even after graduating and embarking on a full-time career, I couldn't bear to give up this rewarding activity. I cherished the opportunity to connect with diverse individuals and assist them in achieving their language goals. In my teaching methodology, interactivity takes center stage. I employ a variety of engaging learning tools, including photos, newspaper articles, music, videos, and more. My approach is highly adaptable, with a focus on addressing each student's unique priorities. Some seek to refine their pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary, while others require assistance with presentations or speeches for school or work. Some simply aspire to acquire a new language to enrich their general knowledge. I also specialize in teaching younger children, a testament to my educational background and experience. What you will gain from my courses extends beyond impeccable pronunciation and enhanced vocabulary and grammar. You'll also acquire a profound understanding of the culture associated with each language. When speaking a language, it's essential to appreciate the lifestyle, traditions, and heritage of the nations where it thrives. French and English are spoken as primary languages in numerous countries worldwide, each with its own unique accent and cultural nuances. The learning process is limitless! In addition to my language instruction, I'm a genealogist and host spiritual (non-religious) seminars in the beautiful West of Ireland. My passion for vegetarian and vegan cuisine adds a flavorful dimension to my life. Furthermore, I hold a degree in Early Childhood Education and have operated a private "Before & Afterschool" facility along with Summer Camps catering to children aged 4 to 12 for many years. I am genuinely excited about the prospect of meeting and working with you!

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.

Giorgia
Italian language lessons from a native speaker - any level
Hello everyone! I'm Giorgia and I come from Torino, Italy. I offer my native knowledge of Italian to any of you, who wants to discover this beautiful language. I teach for all levels, from very beginners to advanced speakers, passing through amateurs or simply curious of any age. I can also help with university exams and school works/assignments. Being a pianist and a piano teacher, I already have lots of experience with teaching and pedagogical approach with the whole range of ages. The lesson is intended to meet the student needs: the focus can be on the grammar, conversation or literature. In case of a middle-level speaker, the lesson will cover all four language's abilities: listening, speaking, writing and reading. My suggestion of a well planned lesson is, for any level, to divide it into two parts: grammar first and then conversation (covering all the abilities mentioned above). Thank you for your attention and looking forward to meeting you !!

Kevin
Polyglot specialist with 9 years of experience. German in speed mode. Level A1 to C2. No school teaching.
I offer you a German course that is not like the others. There are two types of courses. Here is an analogy to illustrate their respective approaches: If you travel back and forth by train every day and don't have time to wait long at the platform, imagine that you only have two options: 1) Memorise the timetable. 2) Realise that the train comes every ten minutes and that a train arrives for example at 7:00 a.m. In school pedagogy, in textbooks and in normal lessons, the first approach is used - in the course I am offering you, it is the second approach because it is more economical and faster. My offer is aimed at both pupils and adults who want to learn the German language without time-consuming detours through the madness of fruitless school methods. Learning is easy, but unlearning things that have become bad habits is extremely difficult. This makes it all the more important to learn the right reflexes as early as possible. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced learner, with my customised lessons you will greatly accelerate the learning process while having a positive attitude. I offer German lessons for individuals or groups (2 to 5 people). The methods are based on cognitive science and historical linguistics in particular. My modular programme can be adapted on a case-by-case basis. The converging point of these modules is your independence in spontaneous conversations in real life. What will not be covered in the course: learning lists of verbs; learning lists of nouns with articles; learning words with their translations; flashcards; doing school exercises; following the syllabus of a booklet; imposing the English grammar on the German language. What is particularly important to me: to motivate my student and to give him a learning rhythm; to encourage his creativity; to befriend him with the language; the letters and their sounds; to strengthen the memory by training the phonological loop; to teach blueprints instead of memorising sentences; to explain how the language works in order to make my student independent as quickly as possible; to eliminate common preconceptions, such as that 'der' would mean masculine and 'die' feminine, that the accusative would be a direct complement and the dative an indirect complement, that verbs would be irregular, that declension would be random and therefore would have to be learnt with each verb...; to put practice at the centre and only deal with grammar where necessary. A first lesson will give you a sound idea of my pedagogy.

Mathieu
Private (online) french lesson. experienced teacher in Paris.
Hi everyone, I'm Mathieu, 38 years old, from Paris, France. I'm a full-time professional french teacher.

I have all the materials necessary ready for you, self-made PDF, audio files and much more. I always adapt my classes to the student's needs. We can focus on what's most important to you.

Sebastian
Fun and Effective German course with Money-Back-Guarantee!
I am a German native speaker and general language enthusiast. Besides German, I speak English, Swedish, Spanish, French, and Italian. Having learned 6 languages myself, I am 100% convinced that I will successfully teach you German (in a fun and relaxed manner)! I have been teaching since 2018 and am currently one of the most-reviewed teachers on this platform. I encourage you to pause here and have a look at my reviews. I am confident that you too will have a similar view after having had some classes with me. On top of teaching here on Apprentus, I have taught offline group classes for the Volksuniversiteit The Hague (A Volksuniversiteit (litt. folk university) is an institute for non-formal adult education in the Netherlands). I also taught for and underwent training with Berlitz, which is one of, if not THE largest language school in the world, operating in over 70 countries and 500+ locations. I am 33 years old, have an honours degree from Leiden University, The Hague, am calm, encouraging, and, most importantly, PATIENT. My main objective in classes is to make the student feel relaxed and at ease. I encourage you to speak without fear of making mistakes. In fact, I celebrate making mistakes. "Why?", you may ask. Well, making mistakes means that you are leaving your comfort zone. You are trying something that you are not already skilled at. You don't choose the easy path! People who never make mistakes are stagnant. Therefore, making mistakes should be CELEBRATED instead of shunned! So, good on you for mispronouncing "Nachmittag (Afternoon)", or using the wrong grammar when making a sentence! Here, let me help you get it right this time! :) Do you already have German knowledge? No problem! Instead of building the basics, we can design classes that meet your personal needs and preferences. We can write essays together, you can hold presentations about topics of your interests or topics that I provide, we can discuss current events, hold debates, you can write news-paper article summaries, or we deep dive into advanced grammar. Whatever it is that you enjoy and need: We can do it together. All my classes combine speaking, listening & grammar exercises in interaction with me. Unless you're a very advanced student, we will work with learning materials created by some of the best publishers for language learning in Germany. These materials serve as a red thread for our course that introduces new words, grammar, and exercises in a good pace and interesting manner which keeps you engaged and motivated. Furthermore, I show you German food, music, and places. On top of that, I introduce you to the best technological tools (homepages and applications) to boost your language learning and take it to the next level! Another important factor for me is having a personal connection. Unless you prefer to "stick to business", which is fine as well, we typically start our classes by talking about how the weekend or preceding weekdays have been. I don't see my students as a resource to be extracted, but as people for whom I develop a genuine interest. Over the course of time, we both know what is going on in our respective lives and update each other about small or big life events. Having taught many students for multiple years, I can gladly say that I have made real friends thanks to our classes, some of whom I even have met in real life. I am extremely confident that you very soon will have the same success that I have had in learning languages! So what are you waiting for? Get in touch now to book a first lesson in which we can get to know each other so that I can learn about you, your needs, and your wishes, which will allow us to design the optimal course for you. See you soon! Bis bald! Sebastian

Fatima
🇲🇫 Be Fluent in French and Speak it with Confidence!
My name is Fatima and I am delighted to introduce myself to you as your future French teacher. For four years, I have had the pleasure of teaching this magnificent language and its rich and diverse literature. Currently based in Vietnam, I have had the opportunity to teach students from diverse backgrounds, which has enriched my perspective and my teaching method. My passion for the French language and literature began at a very young age, and it led me to obtain a master's degree in French literature and education. Every day, I am inspired by the works of great authors and by the beauty of the French language. What pushes me to share my knowledge is the deep desire to transmit this passion and to see my students flourish thanks to their mastery of French. As a teacher, I adopt a different teaching method. I favor interactive and creative lessons, where each student can express themselves freely and develop their language skills in a dynamic and engaging way. My goal is to make you love the French language as much as I love it, and to give you the tools you need to express yourself with ease and confidence. I can't wait to start this adventure with you and share the richness of French literature together. Join me to discover a world of words, stories and culture.

Tiffany
English tutoring with native speaker for all levels
Hello, I'm Tiffany! I've been teaching English for about 8 years now. It all started after I left the US to live abroad and has evolved in all types of ways. My approach is nothing pushy, I work with my students to see how they want lessons to go. I encourage my students to work on all points of language not just speaking. So some lessons can be grammar heavy, others we may focus on a light conversation because sometimes we just want to enjoy ourselves! Feedback is given and if it fits for the student homework is always available. *General English Lessons* We'll focus on all skills in these lessons! We'll read short articles, reviews and social media posts... These could be scientific or magazine articles. We'll listen and watch videos on interesting topics, learn different dialects and new words. I also use podcasts to hear how native language sounds in conversation. Grammar will also be a key element of our lessons. We'll analyze the most difficult areas, expanding your grammatical range. Writing is also important. We can look at how to write an email for work, an essay or even a simple sms. And, of course, speaking. We'll focus on your fluency and coherence, as well as expanding your vocabulary. Our topics can range from the pros and cons of living in a city to the future of life on Mars. I work on an interactive platform. You'll also have access to everything we work on during and after lessons on the platform.
