« If you are looking for a seasoned and very professional teacher, patient with good didactic look no further; you have just found not only a teacher that has all those qualities but also can bring you an enormous advantage if you speak French, German, Farsi, Arabic or Portuguese like me; she can speak all those languages (that I know of) being proficient in German.

FRENCH LESSONS in BRISBANE and ONLINE - Conversation // Grammar // Speaking // Homework Help // Pronunciation

Methodology

I offer two types of classes - INFORMAL and FORMAL:

Informal classes are for ESL or German students who want to practice their conversation skills, with some grammar/vocabulary revision sprinkled in. These are $30 AUD per hour.

Formal classes are for ESL, German or French students who need to focus on specific areas, like grammar, pronunciation, help with completing homework, and following class material (or for students who wish that I prepare the material for class). These cost $40 AUD per hour to account for preparation time and recordings made after classes (for students to remember vocabulary and pronunciation).

If you book a package of five classes to use within 30 days I will give you a 10% discount off the total price.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Background

****MAY 2020****ONLINE TUTORING ONLY CURRENTLY****

I have three years' experience teaching languages and many more years of experience as a language student. I have learnt German, French, Farsi (Persian), Portuguese and Arabic myself and have lived in several countries as a foreigner, so I know the struggles of learning a new language.

I think people learn best when they just keep on practising expressing themselves. With each of my students I have a Google Doc where the lesson notes are saved so we can keep coming back to them in following lessons to make sure that they don't forget. I have my own interesting material - or, we can use yours.

Because of my background in linguistics and languages, I am quite good at teaching topics that may be more challenging for some tutors, like grammar and pronunciation.

I completed my PGDip in Linguistics at Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris and my MSc in Neuroscience at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. I have lived in France for one year and Germany for five years.

If you are looking for a seasoned and very professional teacher, patient with good didactic look no further; you have just found not only a teacher that has all those qualities but also can bring you an enormous advantage if you speak French, German, Farsi, Arabic or Portuguese like me; she can speak all those languages (that I know of) being proficient in German. Even if you don't she has strong formation on the learning process, you will hardly find someone so competent.

For all those reasons having classes with Shiva helped me a lot in my college and in my life abroad in an English speaking country, I really recommend her classes for anyone.

Shiva is a talented and highly motivated language learner with an excellent command of pronunciation in her native English and in many other languages. As an instructor of others who are trying to learn languages on their own, she is empathetic and supportive. She can draw on her academic background in linguistics as well as on her personal learning experience to give you tips and strategies for meeting your personal learning goals. In my case, she helped me a great deal in improving my French accent. If language is your focus, then you are safe with Shiva.
