About Me

Enthusiastic Humanities, History and French tutor!
I really enjoy teaching which is for me one of the best ways to transmit knowledge and support students in their path to building knowledge. I started as a French teacher in a local primary school and when I studied for my Ph.D. in Environmental Humanities, Archaeology and Geo-archaeology, I had the opportunity to become a teaching assistant and then a lecturer. I love teaching history which is my main academic background with specific expertise in medieval and environmental history, archaeology and geoarchaeology. As a historian, I help students to develop critical thinking, analyzing and understanding primary and secondary sources and also develop and master their communication skills (oral and written) which are essential not only for the study of history but also the day-to-day life. As an archaeologist /geo-archaeologist I have gained considerable skills in both the private sector and academia as a lecturer, and published author. Teaching is extremely rewarding when I can see students developing their knowledge and succeeding in their studies no matter the subject.
Whether you are looking to improve your conversation or need a tutor for academic purposes, as a french Native speaker I will support your learning. We will use your own material which could be complemented by various media supports such as watching TV programmes, reading books and magazines and listening to french songs too. With me you will be immerge in French culture which is the best way to understand and practice a language.

Tobias
Spanish Tutoring and History Tutoring for ages 12-18
I am offering tutoring in History and looking for tutees from Primary school to upper Secondary school students and also looking for tutees for Spanish at any age range. As bilingual British National who grew up in Madrid in an International British School: King's College Madrid, I have been speaking, listening and writing in Spanish from an early age. I have experience in being able to switch between languages effectively and I find it easy to engage in conversation in both Spanish and English. I have also had previous experience in teaching English to Spanish students for which I believe the skills are transferrable to teaching Spanish to English students. During the sessions, I would help with completing grammar exercises as well as work on conversational topics in order to provide a wider range of vocabulary to help with oral as well as written exams. I believe it is important to set exercises and tests during the sessions so I can figure out the main difficulties that the student has in writing in Spanish in order to tackle these problems and help the student. I am outgoing, patient and eager to help students build up their confidence in being able to comfortably speak a foreign language (Spanish) as well as build on their grammar and knowledge of Spanish culture. As well as this, I have recently graduated from The University of Kent where I obtained a 1st Class Honours in my degree. The degree covered a wide range of IGCSE and A level History topics including International History between World Wars as well as American, Russian, African, Indian and Spanish history during the 20th Century. With this, the sessions will consist of providing greater knowledge to the study of History, not only focusing on learning facts, but mainly the significance behind them in leading to other events and the analytical process comparing and contrasting certain viewpoints in order to provide two sides of an argument. My teaching style, therefore, involves following exam structures and working out the key features of writing history essays, as well as setting writing exercises to prepare for exams with the short time available to write said essays. I understand the difficulties that exist for GCSE and A-Level History students and I believe my experience will help to push students to understand the main points to work on when preparing for an essay or exam.

Christos
European History from late Antiquity to modern era.
We are used to almost hate everything that has to do with "history". The way we have been taught has caused this constant impression. I used to hate history. But this feeling made me think and always try to find ways of making history an interesting object of studying. We do not need to learn exhausting lists of historical events, names and dates. Just need to see what happened, take a look of humanity and certain people in our attempt to explain the reasons. History is a science. A historian is a detective. Many or few clues are given, explanation and interpretation are laid on him. From the Fall of Roman Empire to the modern times.

History of contemporary Art - from late 800 to nowadays
The class will focus on contemporary art (from impressions to nowadays). The lecture will be interactive and will engage the younger students with some "games" to learn. Every 3 sessions I will organise a small workshop for the student, in order to understand if they are on track or not. Moreover, the workshops aim to keep them involved and to facilitate their compression on the subject. Finally, at the end of the program I will do a small test (if the client requires it) that will cover all the arguments. If the parents wants we can discuss the program and the specifics of their child.

Support course, homework help or methodology
Currently a first year student of the International Master in Architecture at KU Leuven as well as a correspondence student in the second year of the Research Master in Philosophy, I propose to help your child with his homework (simple follow-up, methodological and editorial help etc.) and this at primary as well as secondary. I have been giving private lessons in France for 4 years and my university career has allowed me to acquire methodological skills in a large number of subjects: - Scientific Baccalaureate 2015 - Preparatory class for the grandes écoles (Letters / social sciences / mathematics) 2015 - 2017 / Under-eligible for the Normal Superior School - Double license (3rd year) Philosophy - Social Sciences (Paris I Sorbonne - Paris X Dauphine), mention Bien 2017 - 2018 - Bachelor of Architecture (2nd and 3rd year) National School of Architecture of Nantes, mention Bien 2018 - 2020 - Research Master in Philosophy by distance learning Paris IX Nanterre, 2019-2021 - International Master of Architecture KU Leuven, 2020-2022 I speak French (native), English (C1), Spanish (B2). My methodology evolves according to the needs and difficulties of the students. For fairly regular support, such as homework help, I usually set up a file writing system which allows students to structure their work and to be able to revise even after I have left. For more methodological advice I also adapt to the student. Thus, there may be joint writing or corrections of work done in class. On the other hand I am very available for my students, I respond quickly by email if necessary, I can also make corrections or revision documents from my home in order to complete the sessions with your child.

European History- private lessons in analysis, essay writing and exam prep
I have deeply enjoyed European History high school, where I received top marks, through university to the present, where I still read and learn history on a regular basis. I am familiar not only with the impact of wider trends such as the printing press, reformation, industrialization and colonization across history but also with the specific histories (and personalities that make them) of the UK, France, Germany, Russia and Spain. Since learning the Annales approach to history I have been really keen about learning history from a wide variety of perspectives. In recent years, I have particularly tried to focus on history retold from the perspective of those left out of the traditional view, which is really just anyone who isn't a white, upper-class and male. This broader and more complex view of history leads to a more nuanced understanding of the past, particularly from a social perspective.
