Hello, Bonjour, Ciao!
My name is Lydia Hamd, and I know the struggle you are going through learning another language! It is exciting, but also frustrating at times. I know how you feel because I have taught myself 2 languages, and perfected a third language on my own. It's not easy, but so rewarding.
With me as your tutor, you can be confident that you will improve every lesson, because I will use the same methods I used for myself, with you!
Game plan/What to expect:
-Passionate teacher. I love languages. It's an exciting process, and you'll feel good coming to lessons!
-Flexibility. These lessons are for you, and I will tailor my style, and schedule, so that you can really learn best.
-Contextual learning. Every lesson we will speak, read, write, and listen to French. That way we are constantly engaging with the French language and culture in a real life way!
-Confidence boosting activities. The goal is to make you feel good and smart while you're learning a language! No need to ever feel dumb. You won't with me.
Additionally, I received my Bachelor's in Philosophy, as well as French, so I am also very qualified and passionate about tutoring English, offering editing services, as well as tutoring Philosophy.
As a writing tutor I make sure your structure in impeccable, and that your argument is solid. I emphasize elevating the student's language, so they are eloquent as well as concise.
Additionally, as an English/Philosophy tutor, I make sure my students grasp the foundational meaning of their text. The goal is to see deeper, as well as wider, gaining an understanding of the context the piece was written in. I make sure you don't just get through your reading, but push through with confidence.
Hope to schedule a lesson with you!
