Kristel
Private Estonian teaching and tutoring for all levels
Learning Estonian can be quite hard on your own or in a group. As a native speaker I can help you become fluent in Estonian by practicing conversation, writing, grammar or any other subject you would like by taking an individual approach. At the moment I offer private lessons to levels Beginner and Intermediate using English as a base language.

Yen-Chun,
Chinese Mandarin, 8 years of experience, Daily Chinese, patient, 1 by 1
Chinese is both deep and interesting. Its grammar is simple, but the reading and writing are full of "surprises". I am Taiwanese and very happy to share and teach my native language. I live in Delémont, Switzerland. In Taiwan, I taught Chinese to foreigners; i have been in international business for almost 20 years and have been exposed to cultures from over 50 different countries. Everyone is always full of freshness and curiosity for Chinese ... Now I will share with you the pleasure and the harvest of learning Chinese. My course is mainly oral, and at the end I hope to be able to speak to you in Chinese. The goal is obviously to be able to express oneself. I personalize all my documents so that the level corresponds to everyone's interests. My students are regardless of their age. (They are teenagers, adults and even retirees) I also created a "WhatsApp" group to promote learning on a daily basis because it is important to continue having fun. I am really passionate about my job and would love to teach you my native language.

Jessica
Private English lessons (language, pronunciation, culture ...)
Everyone learns differently and at their own pace, so I adapt my teaching to the needs of my student. Remedial lessons, pronunciation, writing or general comprehension assistance. Learning the language alone or combined with culture, anything is possible! I have a bachelor's degree in translation (English / Chinese) as well as a master's degree in multilingual communication (English / French). At the same time, I also took intensive English courses at a university in Florida and courses in modern language teaching. Do not hesitate to contact me for more details.

Elaine
German, English exam preparation for school and A1 to DSH
I help schoolchildren and adults to learn both German and English. With fun and empathy. What distinguishes my lessons is that I have a lot of patience for my students and practice with them until they understand it. Everyone loves teaching with me. I respond to my students' requests and my goal is to help students make progress without burdening them. I give assignments after every lesson and create regular progress reports.

Yolanda
ESL/EFL Online English Language Tutor - Individuals
My lessons are student-centred, flexible, and fun! Lessons are continuously adapted to suit the individual; every lesson is structured based on the needs of the student. The focus of lessons will initially be based on a student needs assessment carried out at the start of your course, and subsequent lessons will be adapted based on your progress and changing needs throughout the duration of a specific course. Learning areas identified may include: * Refining your pronunciation * Practicing everyday language and conversational skills * Exam preparation, focusing on specific grammar and/or vocabulary * Reading comprehension and practice * Writing correction and practice * Job interview preparation Lessons are conducted in English, since this has shown to be the most effective way for students to learn a foreign or second language. It is recommended to book a course of at least 20 hours to start with.

Espace Cours
Communication Training (Professional / Personal) & Public Speaking
Whether your goal is personal or professional, speaking is a predominantly physical activity, relying on a body, a voice, a breath, a rhythm (diction) and an emotion (the imagination and the sensations, reflecting the involvement of the speaker in his speech. How to send a clear message? How to make the difference, to make an impression? How to regain self-confidence and control the management of his emotions? Knowing how to speak in public is now a necessity for the company and in the company. From a personal point of view, this is a vector for better relationships and optimal messages. On the phone, in a meeting, in front of a client or a banker (…), your public speaking must be effective and efficient with clear, simple and powerful messages, creating a match between the message received and the message sent. Simple and pragmatic tools will be presented and then put into practice for: generating listening ● making an impression ● fostering trust ● generating need ● motivating teams by explaining a strategy ● getting messages across within groups. Controlled, the method allows: • improve self-confidence and stress management with the development of the speaker's fluency (verbal-bodily), his public speaking and his sense of repartee and improvisation • to work on his ease, leadership, his NLP, his charisma, his creativity and to go towards a certain personal development, through a set of scenarios * improve the characteristics of the spoken voice (timbre, pitch, intention, flow) Completed by basic exercises (diction, voice, presence, breathing, presentation, time management ...), role plays, improvisations and simulations will be set up. With the key words: pronunciation, rhetoric, verbal and non-verbal communication, diction / articulation, the sense of repartee, structured speech (…). The goal is not only to focus on verbal communication but also on nonverbal communication, so as to make the control of his body, his voice (...), a real and lasting strength. Depending on the interaction between the trainer - coach and the one who consults, there is no single way to operate: each type of session depends on the needs and difficulties of each. In all cases, it is very often a question, while adapting to your own needs and after having precisely diagnosed your desired objective and the blockages encountered, to combine the theory (the bases of the studied concept, for example NLP / information asymmetry / the "how to say no" / the tools of non-verbal communication or the application of kinaesthesia) and its application (through exercises and direct applications). For example, are discussed: - the fundamentals of public speaking: breathing, gaze and body language - diction and elocution: rhythm and range of your voice - management of your emotions and your emotional overflow (example: stress) - work on the body, to amplify your charisma and ensure consistency between your message and your body ... with the aim of: * Enhance your presentation and arouse interest by focusing on your strengths, your qualities ... your personality * Match the content and form of your message * Improve your charisma, your self-confidence and the benefits of your emotional intelligence THE TRAINER: Postgraduate School Training & Ivy league college in the United States, our teacher has specialized and worked for over 13 years, in Europe and North America, in the field of communication and public speaking in renowned public and private international institutions, involved in forums and conferences, and focused on two areas: training and coaching, with the key words pedagogy and careful methodology. PLACES - Locations: Geneva - Lausanne - Friborg - Neuchâtel - Montreux - Basel - Sion - Sierre - Morges - Bienne. But currently and until further notice, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid. These sessions also seem to be perfectly unanimous since they have the advantages of live (example: quality of the interaction), without its disadvantages (example: loss of travel time) with additional advantages (example: notes that can be re-read on the chat). In this context, the videoconference sessions for which you asked me to seem to suit everyone perfectly, take place very optimally and generate a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). That is why, at your request, I continue to offer this option. Take good care of yourself and yours! PROGRAM A la carte program: evaluated and adapted to each need.
