A glorious journey into poetry: creative writing and learning

My classes involve a mixture of discovering poetry in its diverse forms and responding to writing exercises. All activities have the aim of expanding the student's personal relationship with this incredible art form and developing their power to self-express creatively. We will look at how poetry continues to challenge the status quo and can act as a space for connection, emotional healing and rebirth in climates of limitation and struggle. I am passionate about teaching poetry writing because I have seen how beneficial the sharing and crafting of poetry is for mental health; I want to bring this passion into people's lives and am as excited to learn from each student's insights and creations as I am to impart knowledge and feedback.

I am an experienced tutor and published poet with a first-class honours degree in English and Spanish from Durham University. My anthology "Poems of Hope", on the subject of mental health, was published in 2019 to fundraise for Mind UK. I am currently studying part-time postgraduate course in teaching creative writing with Cambridge University to complement writing and teaching. I have 5+ years of experience tutoring English and have devised and delivered poetry workshops for vulnerable adults as well as tutored creative writing throughout the pandemic. I have also spent a year working with SEN students in secondary education as a teaching assistant. I welcome teenagers and adults who identify as neurodivergent, disabled or struggling with mental health.

I hope to hear from you and look forward to journeying into poetry together.

I believe that everyone has a personalized learning style, so I love to explore your interest, your goals first and then adjust it to my teaching approaches and learning activities. I really love to see learners’ confidence and progression. We will make the lessons fun and productive. Basically, the lesson will be started with basic Thai, daily life conversation and topics in society will be discussed and included in the lessons, Slang, or some Thai words will be discussed based on the learner asking for and we will expand it. The lesson will be focused on using the Thai language naturally as well. Moreover, I used to work for both public and private sectors so, for those who need to learn the Thai language and culture in the workplace/business, I can support you in these parts.

ORAL PREPARATION 🗣️ WRITTEN ✍ PATENT 🎓 BACCALAUREATE by PROFESSOR of Higher & Secondary and PROFESSIONAL COACH Orientation COMMUNICATION
ORAL PREPARATION 🗣️ WRITTEN ✍ PATENT 🎓 BACCALAUREATE By PROFESSOR of TRADE Graduated from Higher & Secondary and PROFESSIONAL COACH State diploma PRESENTIAL and DISTANCIAL Hello, Currently, different contexts lead me to practice my profession as a State-certified Teacher and Professional Coach, also with middle and high school students. Also, for about fifteen years, face-to-face and remote (videoconference), in front of entire classes as well as private lessons at home. Finally, for two years I have devoted myself exclusively to the individual follow-up of my students, at home and / or by video. In particular with the success of high school students in their orientation, in agreement with their life project as well as in agreement with their family. A mission that is particularly close to my heart. Both in scientific and literary profiles, because of having implemented methods aimed at greatly facilitating their learning in complete confidence, with the key to a good improvement in their results. In order to be able to carry out their wishes serenely, in connection with their life project. For the College students, it is a significant gain in autonomy accompanied by higher results with a good homogeneity of their academic profile in both scientific and literary subjects. With for the Third, a successful transition to Second taking into account the first choice of the pupils and their family... Thanks to regular work, both on the understanding of the key words in the texts to be learned and the statements to be understood, as well as than on the structuring of responses. All this, regularly accompanied by continuous control situations (including the College Diploma). Thus, during these two decades I have implemented proven methodological approaches. Some borrowed from the Theatre, others like the Davis method (mind mappings / colors), as well as Mental Preparation or Cognitive Remediation borrowed from Professional Coaching (my specialty). The main objective is to establish a specific framework that can accommodate a methodology adapted to each of my students. In order to motivate your child sustainably, by developing at home a certain agility, and in all subjects. For now, as for his future, when I will no longer be present by his side to accompany him. Finally, working on a subject in order to gain points, generally four from the first trimester of treatment, does not seem satisfactory enough to me ... All the more convinced that I work alongside my profession as a teacher, that of mental trainer with our young athletes in France and in Europe (by videoconference); as part of their tennis preparation for the French and European Championships. Teacher from General Education, mainly in scientific subjects, I suggest you support your child, to become an actor in the construction of his school career, especially in this period so unique but oh so rich in its opportunities and challenges. . Besides that, I practice an hourly rate within the framework of the CESU. In particular in order to benefit from a tax credit immediately within the framework of the CESU +. Or up to 50% less depending on your income. So I propose to facilitate the procedures that allow you to benefit from it from the first lesson. Please contact me for more information regarding your situation. See you soon Corinne-Mer.

Impeccable French: private classes tailored for you

My methods are based on listening, dialog and creativity: they adjust to match your needs, goals and interests may you be looking for help with academic French at school, conversational French, or writing tips (you name it!) You can count on lots of videos, podcasts, articles, songs, fiction and non fiction texts, photos, art pieces, social media posts, TV series, etc. as well as oral and written homemade exercises, tests, etc. to go on at your own pace with autonomy. I am there to make you feel comfortable and confident and help you reveal your linguistic and literary skills in a relaxed and playful atmosphere. Your questions, doubts and mistakes will be the engine of the classes. I studied Modern Literature and Creative Writing in Paris and I have tutored students of all ages and proficiency since 2017. I keep on learning as well with each and everyone of my students. Feel free to contact me! Thank you! Noémie

I can help you by having conversations on various topics to help you feel comfortable by correcting any errors. If you need help writing any documents, editing words or clarifying the meaning, that is something I would be happy to help you with. How can I help make your life easier with learning English?
