French. Learn how to communicate via engaging activities that promote maximum interaction.

I am a French native teacher and I hold a PGCE Secondary French. I have taught French in Adult Education and in secondary schools for 20 years.
My lessons are for absolute beginners to advanced students, for work, for leisure and for exam prep.
I accept small groups of learners working at the same level.
My favourite teaching method is structured questioning which, in my view, exploits students` natural language capability quite effectively. In short, my approach to effective MFL teaching and learning is essentially communicative with a strong focus on oracy before literacy.
I always make sure that students use their newly acquired vocabulary in every lesson and demonstrate their understanding through speaking, listening, reading and writing. I assign homework after every lesson to reinforce learning.

About Me

I believe that providing lots of Target Language input is key to language learning . I tailor my lessons to students’needs and set appropriate homework because maximizing the input is crucial and that practice makes perfect.

Thanks to years of experience, I have developed a very good sense of what makes learners tick and what they find difficult. I take on board students’ learning styles and adapt my teaching accordingly.

My lessons’ content is well organized. I explain the language clearly, in an engaging way, in a way students understand, but knowing that progress comes more from practice than explanation.

I am convinced that massive exposure to meaningful input, recycling, noticing and extensive practice across all four skills are key to acquisition. Therefore, I use effective questioning and other interactions, choose input at the right level, find interesting content, know when to use games, pair work, technology and avoid time-wasting tasks. I can identify which tasks will give the best return on investment and believe skills can develop with lots of practice and a good repertoire of activity types.

Education

Corinne
French pronunciation for non French speakers or to lose an accent. No grammar lessons.
French pronunciation is a real challenge. The verbo tonal method, often used by speech therapists, is particularly suitable for correcting French pronunciation for those of you who are not French speakers but also for French speakers who wish to get rid of an accent. We will work on the sounds of the language integrated into the sentence, the rhythm, the intonation and considered as a living and evolving system. This method is very effective. You will see your progress very quickly and your self-confidence will allow you to overcome any reluctance you may have had before to express yourself in public. For others, having a more neutral pronunciation in French can be a significant asset professionally.

Private lessons many subjects (school period and holidays) college-high school level
I offer weekly lessons or internship revisions, remediation by skills, upgrading for high school students, in several subjects: mathematics, French, English, German, SVT (from the 1st, see my other announcement), scientific education and philosophy (mainly subject analysis). Associate professor currently available from the National Education for family reasons (I am therefore no longer in a post in an establishment since 01/09/2021 and am no longer an employee of the EN), I have a double course literary and scientific and gives private tutoring in many subjects in video under autoentrepreneur status. With 10 years of teaching experience in secondary school, with several bac juries to my credit, and many years of experience of private lessons (including 3 years in main activity during a previous availability), I offers you my help in these different disciplines, which I am used to teaching in private lessons and which I have sometimes been asked to teach in the context of short-term replacements in college (replacements for colleagues from English and French late in having replacements appointed to their posts). My classes combine rigor and benevolence, professionalism, dynamism and humor, according to my former students, when they mention the help that I was able to provide them. I am used to working with multi-dys, AD / HD, high potential and Asperger's students as well. I insist a lot on scientific methodology and the quality of writing, in science as in literary subjects. I can help you optimize your learning and memorization techniques, help you get to the point, make mental maps. We will also work on the general organization of your work if necessary. I also and above all want to pass on to you my pleasure of learning, which continues to inspire me even today. Having given private lessons for a long time in person at home, I now want to focus on Visio lessons on Zoom, Skype, or any other videoconferencing software. I have been practicing video-format lessons since March 2020 and since then have been more equipped to ensure greater comfort for my students: headphones with microphone (quality sound), graphics tablet connected to an interactive whiteboard, camera-viewer of documents, front lighting reducing unpleasant shadows, Véléda paintings behind me. Small group lessons are also possible. If your child has a classmate who is having difficulty in the same subject, or his or her older sibling needs the same kind of help, it is possible. In this case, the price is decreasing for each participant. Please respect the reserved hours. The courses are adjustable in advance. Any course canceled less than 24 hours in advance is due at 50%. Indeed, the time that I could waste managing multiple cancellations and rescheduling of courses is time that I cannot put to the service of the success of my students. In addition, the presence of a framework, of operating rules is necessary for the investment of the students who engage in a process of accompaniment. So, I also ask you to be punctual and to start your computer and your videoconferencing software a few minutes in advance in order to start the session on time, not to waste precious minutes of class (the session will end at the time initially scheduled ... 10 minutes late means 10 minutes of lost lessons) and to respect the students who have lessons after you. I look forward to meeting you and bringing you my help and expertise.

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.

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.

French, sciences, correction of end of cycle work
HEP graduate, I offer French lessons via webcam. I take into account your weaknesses and your strengths so that these courses remain a joy and a sharing. Having a thorough knowledge of the French teaching plan, I propose the study of various kinds of text (adventure, story, news item, fantastic, marvelous ...). To achieve this, we will review the orthographic, grammatical and lexical bases. On the other hand, I also teach science (up to 8P) I really like to correct the end of cycle work (certificate, matu, Hautes écoles ...)

Dominique
French lessons by mother tongue French teacher for 30 years
Audio-Psycho-Linguist for more than 30 years, passionate about modern languages, I teach French to children, adolescents and adults, during classes where good humor and relaxation reign. Using easy and simple audio-linguistic exercises, I help each student at his level to progress quickly in conversation, pronunciation, vocabulary and grammar, in the form of a friendly and warm exchange. The important thing is that the student dares to speak and becomes confident in his way of expressing himself in French and of acquiring the new bases. My method is based on an experience and practice of more than 30 years, of students of all nationalities to help them according to their aptitudes to integrate the French language and to appreciate it. Conversation, reading, grammar and vocabulary exercises, from articles or texts, according to the needs and wishes of each. Being a voice pose teacher, I also offer to learn songs or nursery rhymes for children.
