About Me

Hi, I'm bilingual French/English of Swiss/French and USA origins. I live in the West of Ireland near the Atlantic Ocean. I hold a Degree in Early Childhood Education and I have worked for several years as a child instructor/educator with children aged 4 to 12 years old. I have been a tutor for children, teenagers, adults, and even seniors (4 to 85 y/o).
My teaching is always interactive in order to hold my students’ attention during the whole length of the classes, using numerous learning tools (photos, newspaper articles, music, videos, etc.) Naturally, I will focus on the priority of each student. Some students will want to improve their pronunciation, grammatical, and vocabulary skills, others will need to prepare a presentation or a speech at school/work, while others just want to learn a new language to enrich their general knowledge.

Vous désirez en connaitre un peu plus sur votre histoire familiale, toutefois, vous ne savez pas par ou commencer? Votre grande-tante (ou votre grand-pere peut-etre) vous a fourni des informations sur ce fameux ancetre noble dont la famille descendrait et vous aimeriez en savoir un peu plus sur cet illustre personnage dont on vous a parlé pour confirmer ces dires? Ou alors, vous n’avez simplement aucune information fiable sur vos ancetres au-delà de vos grands parents et cela vous intéresserait de pouvoir nommer vos arrières-grands-parents, découvrir où ils habitaient, quels métiers ils exercaient, ou encore peut etre connaitre leurs hobbys favoris (on peut en effet découvrir énormement d’informations sur nos ancetres grace à des recherches un peu plus poussées). Il se peut également, que vous vous trouviez face à une impasse dans vos recherches et que vous apprécieriez l’aide d’une personne extérieure: quand on est très impliqué dans sa généalogie, il est parfois utile d’avoir un intervenant neutre qui nous aide avec le recul nécessaire pour y voir plus clair et débloquer une situation compliquée. Dans ce cours, je vous propose une immersion dans votre histoire familiale qui vous permettra de mieux connaitre vos ancetres, mais aussi mieux vous connaitre vous-meme.“ Lorsque tu ne sais pas où tu vas, regarde d'où tu viens” (Proverbe Africain). Lors de nos rencontres, nous travaillerons sur les étapes necessaires et essentielles pour découvrir vos racines familiales et créer, petit à petit, un arbre généalogique passionnant et fascinant que vous serez fier/fière de prséenter à votre famille et entourage! Voilà plus de 25 ans que je me suis intéressé pour la premiere fois à l’histoire de ma famille, car j’avais entendu (comme c’est souvent le cas) une anecdote un peu “fantastique” autour d’un fameux ancetre! Mandaté par un proche, j’ai eu pour projet de vérifier cette information. Et c’est ainsi qu’est née ma passion pour cette discipline que j’exerce au quotidien personnellement, ou alors pour aider des clients à mieux organiser leurs recherches et aller de surprises en surprises! C'est lors du confinement de 2020 que j’ai entrepris une formation diplomante en généalogie. D'origines Irlande-USA-Canada et Suisse, mes deux langues principales de travail sont l'anglais et le francais. Je vous propose également mes services si vous désirez me confier la création et la présentation de votre arbre familial. N’hésitez pas à m’en faire part lors de notre premier contact!
Vous recherchez une personne compétente pour relire et corriger vos documents, qu'ils soient destinés à un contexte professionnel, académique (y compris les hautes écoles spécialisées et les universités), ou associatif ? Je suis à votre service, offrant un travail rapide et de haute qualité à des tarifs extrêmement compétitifs. Fort d'une vaste expérience en tant que relecteur, je suis bilingue en français et en anglais, ce qui me permet de travailler dans les deux langues avec une grande précision. N'hésitez pas à me contacter pour discuter de votre projet. Je répondrai rapidement à votre demande et serai heureux de vous aider à améliorer la qualité de vos documents.
Il est évident que la vie scolaire peut être exigeante. Il est parfois difficile de jongler avec les responsabilités quotidiennes tout en veillant à ce que vos enfants réussissent en français, en anglais, en histoire et en géographie. Je m'appelle Phillip, et je suis là pour vous alléger la charge. Avec plus de 20 ans d'expérience en tant que répétiteur/tuteur, mon objectif est de vous aider à trouver un équilibre et de vous offrir un coup de main précieux. En tant qu'éducateur de l'enfance, je suis à même de comprendre les besoins uniques de chaque enfant. En plus de mon expertise, je suis bilingue en anglais et en français, avec des origines américaines et suisses francophones. Actuellement basé en Irlande, je combine une perspective internationale avec une passion pour l'éducation. Vous pouvez compter sur moi pour offrir à vos enfants des cours de haute qualité dans un environnement d'apprentissage bienveillant. Permettez-moi de prendre le relais, de répondre à leurs questions, et de créer un environnement propice à leur épanouissement. Vous n'avez plus à vous inquiéter des matières qui posent problème. Contactez-moi aujourd'hui, et ensemble, nous pouvons ouvrir le chemin vers un avenir éducatif positif pour vos enfants. Vous méritez de vous détendre et de laisser l'apprentissage de vos enfants entre de bonnes mains. Laissez-moi vous accompagner dans ce chemin vers le succès scolaire et le bien-être.
For the past two decades, I've had the privilege of tutoring in both French and English. My students have ranged in age, background, and origin, spanning children, teenagers, adults, professionals, and even seniors aged 85 and above. You might wonder why I teach both languages. Well, I am bilingual, with American and Swiss/French roots, and I currently reside in Ireland. This unique blend of experiences equips me with a strong and relevant teaching approach. I possess an intimate understanding of both cultures, enabling me to tailor my classes to the specific needs of my students. My teaching journey began during my time studying social work in French-speaking Switzerland. I started offering private French and English lessons to supplement my income, and I quickly discovered my passion for it. Even after graduating and embarking on a full-time career, I couldn't bear to give up this rewarding activity. I cherished the opportunity to connect with diverse individuals and assist them in achieving their language goals. In my teaching methodology, interactivity takes center stage. I employ a variety of engaging learning tools, including photos, newspaper articles, music, videos, and more. My approach is highly adaptable, with a focus on addressing each student's unique priorities. Some seek to refine their pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary, while others require assistance with presentations or speeches for school or work. Some simply aspire to acquire a new language to enrich their general knowledge. I also specialize in teaching younger children, a testament to my educational background and experience. What you will gain from my courses extends beyond impeccable pronunciation and enhanced vocabulary and grammar. You'll also acquire a profound understanding of the culture associated with each language. When speaking a language, it's essential to appreciate the lifestyle, traditions, and heritage of the nations where it thrives. French and English are spoken as primary languages in numerous countries worldwide, each with its own unique accent and cultural nuances. The learning process is limitless! In addition to my language instruction, I'm a genealogist and host spiritual (non-religious) seminars in the beautiful West of Ireland. My passion for vegetarian and vegan cuisine adds a flavorful dimension to my life. Furthermore, I hold a degree in Early Childhood Education and have operated a private "Before & Afterschool" facility along with Summer Camps catering to children aged 4 to 12 for many years. I am genuinely excited about the prospect of meeting and working with you!

Edouard
Mathematics, English and French courses for middle and high school students
I am a student at Bocconi University and I am here to make life easier in maths, English and French for all middle and high school students who have difficulties in these often distressing subjects. Mathematics or secondary language courses such as English or French are often hard to understand in classes of 20-30 students in middle and high school, despite the importance of these subjects. Concerning mathematics, I myself have already had difficulty understanding mathematics but I developed a taste for it thanks to passionate and very educational teachers. I therefore put myself in the place of students who encounter certain difficulties in these subjects and I help them to understand by resuming the course and doing exercises with them until they manage to do the hardest exercises without difficulty. . For English, I had an English and French education throughout my schooling because I obtained my French baccalaureate with international option (OIB), which since this year has been called the BFI (international French baccalaureate) with 17/20 . I can therefore teach English as a secondary language and also give OIB/BFI, IGCSE and Cambridge lessons. For French, my mother tongue, I can teach it academically as a secondary language or in a more literary way because I have in the past helped some students for their French baccalaureate, in which I obtained 18/20 and 20/20.
