About Me

I am a young and energetic teacher who is academically-minded and enjoys discussing topics relating to literature, history, theology and politics. I like to keep my lessons discussion-based when grappling with ideas to ensure the students are able to think for themselves and articulate their understanding of a subject. In addition to this, I like to use writing, reading, performance and videos in my lessons to maximise the student's engagement with the topics, and keep it fun and interesting.

I have experience teaching English, IT and History at a prestigious boarding school in Lebanon, where I taught both classes of children aged 8-11 and one-on-one learning support classes for children aged 8-18. I also have experience teaching children with learning difficulties and naturally, I have received extensive Child Protection Training and DBS Certifications.

Experience / Qualifications

I have experience teaching English, IT and History at a prestigious private boarding school in Lebanon
Full DBS Certification
Child Protection trained
I specialise in tutoring Religious Studies (including Philosophy and Ethics) to GCSE and A-Level for secondary school students to help. I am able to cover topics from all major examination boards (AQA, OCR, Edexcel etc) and help students prepare for examinations, essay writing and just generally understanding.
I specialise in tutoring History to students at GCSE and A-Level. I am familiar with all major examination boards (AQA, OCR, Edexcel etc.) and I can adapt my tutoring to best serve examination practice, essay writing or general understanding of topics. I specialise particularly in Middle Eastern and Islamic History, though I have taught American History and World History in schools before.
This class aids undergraduate theology students in theory and material pertaining to their degree. I can help with the general and critical understanding of theory, as well as essay guidance and examination preparation. I received an M.A (Hons) in Theology from the University of Edinburgh and I chose to specialise particularly in Islamic Studies and politicised religion, though I am happy to assist in covering all aspects of theology.

French classes for GCSE, A Level and general classes for adults
I cater to the student's needs. Purely conversational classes are possible as well as more academic/grammar based and written classes. In my lessons, we will either focus on conversation, vocabulary, grammar, writing, speaking, reading and listening and - of course - I always ensure that my classes are interesting and fun and that you will be able to apply your French in the real world. A typical lesson lasts 1 hour (shorter or longer lessons possible on request)

Almasa
English language classes for students, kids and adults
Hi, my name is Almasa. I hold BA of English language and literature, besides that, I hold TEFL-TESOL certificate for 120 teaching hours from European Center for Education. I worked as an English teacher for three years, and during that period of time I worked with diverse students, starting from kids to adults. Therefore I can teach any age. Right now I work at Bahcesehir Koleji in Istanbul. I believe that the key to good teaching is to make any topic or material comprehensive, dividing it into smaller units.

Individual German seminar for learning in turbo mode. All levels
THE PUPIL This announcement is aimed at both pupils and adults wishing to acquire the German language. I offer tailor-made individual German seminars for levels A1 (beginner) to C2 (perfect mastery). My goal is to make my student independent as quickly as possible. THE METHOD Contrary to popular belief, German is a very tame language. You are certainly familiar with the language courses at school. You are given lists to learn by heart and you are asked to do exercises completely unrelated to the reality of a speaker. We explain grammar to you by confusing French grammar and German grammar. This is why no one manages to express themselves in German having undergone this kind of method which has proven for a century that it does not work. With me, my student has a second chance thanks to intelligent theory and pragmatic methodology. Indeed, I am currently writing a book on the acquisition of foreign languages. THE TEACHER I have 5 years of experience teaching German and an average rating of 5/5. German is my mother tongue, with no particular accent. I master French as if it were a mother tongue. I am fluent in English and Portuguese and have an intermediate level in Latin as well as some basics of Greek. My personal linguistic goal at the moment is to master Latin fluently orally. To maximize the quality of the courses, the sessions take place by video call in combination with Google Drive: - individual tailor-made course - interactive text document - interactive whiteboard - photos or scans can be imported - readable writing - instant written feedback during speaking - very flexible schedule - no time-consuming trips If you are interested, do not hesitate to contact me to arrange an appointment or to ask me your questions. I look forward to meeting you.

Corinne
English: pronunciation (British or American) or conversation
I have facilitated workshops and given classes throughout my career all over the world. English pronunciation is essential these days because English is spoken everywhere and all the time. I followed specialized training such as the verb tonal method, Feldenkrais or mental coaching. We are therefore going to work in a slightly different way by combining articulatory techniques, movement, rhythm, intonation, warming up of the jaw and tongue, stretching of the neck, neck and shoulders to arrive to very fast results.

Brigitte
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.

Learn English Grammar And Paragraph Writing for Beginners, Intermediates and advanced ( A1 / A2 / A3 / B1 / B2 / B3 / C1 / C2 )
These sessions are focused on English for people who encounter challenges in writing, speaking, reading and listening and lack correct grammar and skills. We would develop situational vocabulary, corresponding verbs and adverbs that help transmit more precision when using English. Our mission would be to see where you currently are in the language, strengthen any weak points and create awareness about points that need extra attention. Together we would go through all the English aspects that you should be aware of and implicate the knowlege aquired in real intresting topics and activities. These classes tend to take place in a more relaxed yet fun and stimulating environment. I constantly provide feedback to students about their progress and assign homework to ameliorate the practical and theoretical aspects of the English. This class is all about making English accessible and easy to learn to all through various social and interactive stimulation You may request a full refund and get your money back after your class if you believe that it doesn't suit you .
