    Learn and get help with English language speaking and writing, Biology, Neuroscience and Psychology.

    As a scientist and researcher, I have experience teaching various subjects in science to high-school and university students. I have also worked as an English language tutor for over 5 years and love being able to help people to better use the language (whether for communication or for writing for school and work).

    Being able to be comfortable with the English language is a huge advantage not only for everyday communication but also to be able to communicate professionally. I especially specialize in the use of the English language for presentation and writing in the sciences and social sciences. I adapt my classes to each of my students - depending on their needs and goals. So whether you need help with conversational English or with your essays, scientific articles, theses, or dissertations - I can provide a specialized plan for you, and will do so taking into your field of study. Additionally, I can help you proofread and edit any writing you have.

    I am also a neuroscientist by training and can provide classes and help with your courses in Psychology, Biology, or Neuroscience. Additionally, I also tutor for Mathematics, Physics, and Engineering Sciences for high school and university students (in both English and French). My teaching philosophy for these is still the same- I adapt and prepare every class to each individual student's goals and needs.

    About Me

    I am a research scientist who loves teaching and have always made it a big part of my life- as a student and in my career.

    I completed a Ph.D. in Neuroscience in 2019, and am currently undertaking a second post-doctoral fellowship at INSERM in France. I have taught university-level courses on neuroscience, biology, psychology, and statistics. I also have an equivalent amount of experience teaching English to second language speakers (focusing especially on conversational aspects) and as a writing tutor where I helped university students and professionals with their writing on various subjects from the sciences, social sciences, humanities, fine arts, and engineering.

    I can help you write and improve any aspect of writing you may have- essays, lab reports, presentations, theses, dissertation and also help you prepare for tests. I understand how important it is to suit the style of writing to the topic at hand and understand the differences between writing for English, social sciences, and sciences.
    I also provide classes on English writing, neuroscience, and psychology.

    I can provide one-one or group tutoring and take the utmost care to provide classes and help that best suit each individual student, taking into account their specific needs and their specific areas of help.

I love to make my students speak since I strongly believe that practice is the key to learn a language and to improve your knowledge. I always structure my lessons according to subjects based on daily life situations (how to introduce yourself, how to make an appointment, shopping / grocery, going to the doctors, professional language, etc). We'll go through the grammar, vocab, and pronunciation. If you're intermediate, we'll also do some lessons about reading comprehensions. We'll put both the grammar and vocab in practice. And hey, I can teach in Portuguese if you want!

    Charlie
    English lessons / All levels: beginner and advanced
    At the age of 16 I did a school exchange with Lincoln Park High School of Chicago. I loved learning in English and getting to know a world so different from mine. While I was in an elite Parisian high school, I chose to specialize in English literature at the baccalaureate, for which I obtained a mark of 19/20. Recently, I passed my TOEFL and obtained the C1 level. Very rigorous in French grammar I am also rigorous when it comes to English. Don't worry, I will never be there to judge you but only to help you progress. It is a pleasure for me to speak English and I am sure you will feel it.

    English - conversational English and practicing everyday speech
    **COVID19 pandemic update: Given the circumstances and taking our safety into consideration, I am currently not giving lessons in person. I am, however, available for skype lessons. Thank you for your understanding and stay safe!** A passionate lover of the English culture and lifestyle, I have acquired official certification equivalent to Cambridge English: Proficiency (CPE) level, corresponding to level C2 in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (the highest level possible). After living in the United States for two years, I am currently pursuing a double major Anglais/Etudes Internationales at the Sorbonne University in Paris. My experience in France has taught me that due to the specific nature of the English language and the limited time to practice it, there is an issue when it comes to conversational English. This is what my lessons will focus on - everyday conversational English, correction of accent, learning about stress and sentence dynamics which help you to sound more natural and understanding of phonology and the IPA transcription. If you are shy when it comes to expressing yourself in front of others; if you find yourself lacking the "proper" expressions or tools to engage in everyday conversations; or if you just want to learn what does "hitting the books", "to lose your touch", or to "pitch in" mean - this class is probably for you. And I promise you we'll have a lot of fun while learning! Note: This class focuses mainly on American English.
