"Hi, كيفك , ça va?" I am Lebanese, and I speak English, Arabic and French perfectly, with also a bit of Spanish. Committed to learning french? If you are serious and perseverant, I am here to help!

Methodology

Kindly note that I do not offer the 1st lesson for free.

Before starting my classes, I get to know my students and how they like to learn, their strengths and their weaknesses, and by which means they are more comfortable getting the information (visual, oral, etc).

I get to know the needs of my students, then base my classes to meet their goals. A typical class would be:
- breaking the ice for the 5 first minutes
- talking about the needs of the day/week/month and in which ways we are going to meet them today
- going through the lesson, giving examples and doing exercises
- evaluating the class at the end of the meeting and fixing new objectives for the next class

Background

I am passionate about sustainability and the environment. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering, and will be completing my Master of Industrial Engineering by December 2018.

I have started to give private lessons to students in primary school in Lebanon since I was 17 years old, and once I got into university, I started to give lessons to high school students: chemistry, mathematics, biology, physics, french.

I offered my help to students passing the French Baccalaureate, mostly supporting them in their French exam (épreuves anticipées de Français).

I am currently available to give chemistry lessons to high school students, and other basic courses for primary school students.
I also offer French courses for people willing to learn it from scratch or to practice it.

Finally, I offer Arabic lessons (oral only, and lebanese dialect), for people interested in the Lebanese culture and interested in learning the basics of a conversation.

Perfect! We are so happy to have found Elsa. Her temperament and way of tutoring with my son (12 years old) is fantastic! She explains things very clearly and takes her time going over tasks that are more difficult for him and gives recommendations for what he needs to work on, whilst praising and acknowledging his strengths.

Elsa's interview

QUESTION 01 | 05
When did you develop an interest in your chosen field?
Elsa — At 12 years old, I joined the scouts and I had the opportunity so many times to give out activities, workshops for my teammates . I found myself to be very comfortable with explaining things and delivering messages to different kind of audiences. Since then, I knew it could also be applied to private tutoring.
QUESTION 02 | 05
What makes you passionate about your subject?
Elsa — I think it is important to try to leave this world a little better than we found it (as has well said Robert Baden Powell). We can each have an impact, little or big. I felt like I contributed a bit to helping other's out and making a difference in their lives by improving their skills, and this is what made me passionate about teaching.
QUESTION 03 | 05
What do you like about tutoring? What makes you a "Superprof"?
Elsa — I like discovering people and contributing to making them better in places they need support with. I understand that we are all different, and working with different people makes tutoring very exciting: the tutor must adapt to his students, discover their strengths and deliver his message by advancing these strengths. I believe I have to interact in this way with my students.
QUESTION 04 | 05
Do you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
Elsa — My french professor has inspired me so much when I was in high school. She had traveled and seen the world, and has inspired me everyday by her way of thinking and passion for her job.
QUESTION 05 | 05
What are your keys to success?
Elsa — First of all, to believe in and love myself. Second, I think it is to do everything I do by staying true and genuine (authentic). Third, to persevere, ask for help when I need it. Finally, to auto-evaluate myself and always look to new ways to develop and improve myself.
