Qualified native English teacher in Cambridge. Personalised teaching method to ensure progress.
Tailored practice and further development * speak with confidence * improve your writing * read confidently * improve your listening skills Grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation training, and accent reduction. Make yourself understood with confidence: Pronunciation, elocution, accuracy, vocabulary development, grammar. Writing accurately: Planning, organisation, development. Listening: Grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation. Bespoke lesson-plans, whether for business purposes or for more fluent speaking practice. I have experience teaching every level and currently teach adults face to face in Cambridge. I quickly identify problem areas and work on them using a method that works well with each student-whether on the business premises or in the student's home. Together, we practise pronunciation techniques; fluency; increasing vocabulary; writing; and many more skills - using methods including speaking and listening.
Over the years, I have worked with international students, corporate clients, scientists, business entrepreneurs, and translators to enhance their communication skills regarding clarity, intelligibility, confidence, accuracy, and vocabulary range. I encourage the student to speak as much as possible by using a variety of techniques to provide material to talk about, using everyday vocabulary.

About Me

I'm a native English speaker from Cheshire in England.
I now live in Cambridge, which is a cosmopolitan city, bustling with life and fun. I find it extremely rewarding to be able to help students who are prepared to improve their communication skills in order to improve their lives.

In my free time, I love to be outdoors, whatever the weather: exploring, noticing the changes in nature, and walking with friends and family. I really enjoy cooking (I find it therapeutic), and it’s even more enjoyable with friends or family.
Reading is a great pleasure of mine, and, just as much, I like to hear about what other people are reading. Holidaying in different countries is fabulous, where I like to try the local and popular foods.

Conversational English: Conversation Practice and Improvement
I teach conversational English. The initial purpose of my lessons is to get my students to practice speaking English. "Practice makes perfect", it's true, but during our practice sessions, we will soon discover our weak spots and we will have to address them. The real purpose is not just practice but IMPROVEMENT. So we will dedicate a portion of our sessions together to fixing pronunciation and learning the proper way to use tenses and grammar in everyday speech. We discuss movies, literature, politics, sports, music and anything that two friends might talk about. Role playing, in which we act out situations from everyday life can be a lot of fun. The topics of our conversations largely depend on your interests. By the end of this course, you should be able to speak English fluently and confidently.

ORAL PREPARATION 🗣️ WRITTEN ✍ PATENT 🎓 BACCALAUREATE by PROFESSOR of Higher & Secondary and PROFESSIONAL COACH Orientation COMMUNICATION
ORAL PREPARATION 🗣️ WRITTEN ✍ PATENT 🎓 BACCALAUREATE By PROFESSOR of TRADE Graduated from Higher & Secondary and PROFESSIONAL COACH State diploma PRESENTIAL and DISTANCIAL Hello, Currently, different contexts lead me to practice my profession as a State-certified Teacher and Professional Coach, also with middle and high school students. Also, for about fifteen years, face-to-face and remote (videoconference), in front of entire classes as well as private lessons at home. Finally, for two years I have devoted myself exclusively to the individual follow-up of my students, at home and / or by video. In particular with the success of high school students in their orientation, in agreement with their life project as well as in agreement with their family. A mission that is particularly close to my heart. Both in scientific and literary profiles, because of having implemented methods aimed at greatly facilitating their learning in complete confidence, with the key to a good improvement in their results. In order to be able to carry out their wishes serenely, in connection with their life project. For the College students, it is a significant gain in autonomy accompanied by higher results with a good homogeneity of their academic profile in both scientific and literary subjects. With for the Third, a successful transition to Second taking into account the first choice of the pupils and their family... Thanks to regular work, both on the understanding of the key words in the texts to be learned and the statements to be understood, as well as than on the structuring of responses. All this, regularly accompanied by continuous control situations (including the College Diploma). Thus, during these two decades I have implemented proven methodological approaches. Some borrowed from the Theatre, others like the Davis method (mind mappings / colors), as well as Mental Preparation or Cognitive Remediation borrowed from Professional Coaching (my specialty). The main objective is to establish a specific framework that can accommodate a methodology adapted to each of my students. In order to motivate your child sustainably, by developing at home a certain agility, and in all subjects. For now, as for his future, when I will no longer be present by his side to accompany him. Finally, working on a subject in order to gain points, generally four from the first trimester of treatment, does not seem satisfactory enough to me ... All the more convinced that I work alongside my profession as a teacher, that of mental trainer with our young athletes in France and in Europe (by videoconference); as part of their tennis preparation for the French and European Championships. Teacher from General Education, mainly in scientific subjects, I suggest you support your child, to become an actor in the construction of his school career, especially in this period so unique but oh so rich in its opportunities and challenges. . Besides that, I practice an hourly rate within the framework of the CESU. In particular in order to benefit from a tax credit immediately within the framework of the CESU +. Or up to 50% less depending on your income. So I propose to facilitate the procedures that allow you to benefit from it from the first lesson. Please contact me for more information regarding your situation. See you soon Corinne-Mer.

Dutch conversation lesson for children, teenagers and adults
My way of teaching is mostly fun. Why?! It can be quite scary to learn another language, let alone to speak it... I can give you the feeling of security, so that you dare to speak, in this case the Dutch language. We will focus on listening, pronunciation and of course talk talk talk. During all this I also explain the necessary grammar, of course fully adapted to your level. Because however you look at it, grammar is also necessary, especially as a basis! But don't worry, it won't be a boring list of just grammar, that's why that bit of fun in a lesson is so important! If you're open to that, I'll also give you homework, which will challenge you more ;) Are you ready for this challenge?! I look forward to seeing you in my class :)

Coaching: speaking online or in public, speaking voice work, stress management.
Managing stress, controlling your voice when you have to speak in public (in a conference, webcast or webinar), offering clear and well-structured information, these can represent famous challenges, especially today when it is necessary do this online. To achieve your goals, I offer you a holistic approach to public speaking because, to convey a message, form and content are intimately linked. After a few sessions, you will feel more confident, more convincing. Your interlocutors will be more attentive to the information you want to transmit. Your voice will stay clear longer. Through stress management, you will feel a great boost of energy and concentration. Regarding the form, we will work in particular, the posture, the breathing, the modulation of the voice, the volume, the height, the intonation, and also the eye contact, the gestures, the pauses, in short, what one calls the "non-verbal". We will also see the elements that take precedence during a presentation or an exchange on the Internet. And, if it helps, we'll see the different ways to handle your stress. We will establish your profile to choose the tools that suit you best. Finally, if you have short deadlines (or not), you can put yourself in situation and, for example, prepare an interview, a presentation, a conference or a meeting. We will make simulations that will allow you to be in full possession of your means and the content of your intervention.

Training in public speaking, eloquence and public speaking
After 8 years of theater and many eloquence contests, I decided to share this passion for public speaking with you. Everyone can learn to speak in public, and to have the basics for arguing an idea. Tired of talking under the impression that no one is listening to you? I offer you a course to define clear, simple and powerful messages, to reach all those who listen to you. I will teach you how to build a speech and how to defend an idea! Then we will also work on how to stand, that's all that makes the speech! During a lesson, above all, I let the person express themselves by asking them to tell what they want to identify the gaps (if it is the intonation, the words used, the body, etc.). Following that we will do some exercises to improve. The course may feel a little awkward for the person speaking, since I will analyze the words and the way of speaking, please know that it is completely professional, in no case will there be any judgement. We all have our own and unique word, I'm not here to denigrate it ☺️
