About Me

As a teacher, my approach is progressive, meaning I am more a guide through a learning journey than an authority. I am careful to help my students to build up skills that will make them autonomous learners and value long-term learning opposed to short-term (learning for tests) learning. When teaching languages, I do my best to develop topics the students are interested in, therefore I listen to them carefully, take notes of their interests and find ways to pair linguistic notions with wished topics.
Usually, my lessons are built in the way that every students will be able to produce some work and then the improvement will come from my feedback.

Education

Bachelor with honours in Literature

Serdane
Old language courses for high school students.
My name is Serdane and I offer language courses for students in grades 1 to 4 who would find it difficult to find a way of working that suits them. Extrovert and bubbly ... and above all, a lot of humor! Everyone learns in his own way. This is why I do not have a rigid method but adapt to the contrary to the specificities of each student. I evaluate its level, its strengths, its possible weaknesses or delays, and I develop my course accordingly. My priority is to give the student confidence: Latin and Greek are within everyone's reach when they are well explained! I believe in active teaching methods: I try to involve the student as much as possible, to make him discover what works for him, so that he can pursue his career independently. Finally, I bring specific help when preparing questions or exams in a more difficult subject. My price includes a complete tutoring (private lessons, the possibility to ask questions outside class hours, writing and correcting questions, etc.).

Justyna
Learn Latin for school / university / exam with FUN and passion
I studied Latin for 6 years (high school and university) and read the works of (among others) : -Ovidius -Virgil -Horace -Civero -Catullus I assign homework and after I receive it, correct it thoroughly additionally providing a lot of remarks/examples if they are necessary. During my lessons I use : - Skype/Whatsapp/Messenger to connect with you, - Google Docs to keep notes, which you can check at any time and they are yours to keep, - sketch board me to make mind maps to show connections between ideas, etc. - books, PPP, word docs, diagrams, pics, etc. I adore my profession and desire each and every one of my students be satisfied with the lesson. That's why I make sure the atmosphere is stress-free and nice. I also want my lessons to be as effective as possible. Therefore, I make sure they are well-prepared, although they can be altered at any point, should such an opportunity arise. I like explaining things in a variety of ways as well as make use of dictionaries, diagrams, etc. When it comes to students who want to sit an exam, I am very demanding. What can I teach? - I can prepare you for exams at school / university. - I can help you with assignments / HW. - I can help you with translations / commentaries / grammar / syntax.

Hector
Latin & Ancient Greek classes by Classical Philologue
Let's start by declensions and so on. We'll discover the verbal tenses and how is a phrase done. You don't know the slight aspects unless have studied how Ancient Greek's verbs work, or the Ancient Indian. So, if we can translate texts (at first easier ones, the the original), we could reach anywhere in the vast world around the Roman Empire. Latin is the basis for the Romance languages. And Greek is more usual between us than you could imagine (Medicine, over all). You could structure your mind as the ancient did! They are the "little box" where you can put in whatever you want. It also provides a manner to live and to work in order to know the essential tasks and the rest.
