Learning English is easy! Trust yourself -lessons of writing, reading and oral expression for all levels
Bonjour je m'appelle Audrey ! (English version bellow) Je suis étudiante en relations internationales et en langues étrangères chinois à l'INALCO. De par mes études et ayant beaucoup voyagé je sais à quel point apprendre une langue étrangère peut être difficile à maitriser et certains paliers à dépasser. Surtout, j'ai remarqué qu'il est difficile de se faire confiance dans une langue qui n'est pas la nôtre. C'est pourquoi je vous propose mon aide ! Native française, je suis originaire du Poitou Charente dans l'ouest de la France. J'ai eu l'opportunité de beaucoup voyager lors de mon adolescence et pendant mes études particulièrement en Asie. Je réalise actuellement ma dernière année de master à Paris. Depuis plusieurs années, j'ai pris l'habitude de donner des cours d'anglais à des enfants mais aussi à des adultes , de tout niveaux. J'ai ainsi accompagné des Coréens, des Iraniens, des français etc. J'ai comme objectif que vous preniez plaisir à apprendre l'anglais et à atteindre vos objectifs. Le cours sera donc totalement personnalisé et s'adaptera à vos besoins et à votre centre d'intérêt. Je vous ferais également découvrir la culture au cours de nos leçons (sujets d'actualité, moments forts de l'année ect) car pour apprendre une langue il faut comprendre la culture du pays. Mes cours auront comme objectif de vous faire travailler les cinq compétences : expression orale, écrite, compréhension orale et écrite, grammaire. Bien entendu si vous ne souhaitez travailler que sur un aspect en particulier cela sera possible. Nous pouvons utiliser le matériel que vous possédez ou nous pouvons également travailler avec les ressources dont je dispose. À votre demande et en fonction de vos besoins je pourrais vous donner des devoirs pour poursuivre vos efforts en dehors de nos cours. N'hésitez pas à me contacter si vous avez des questions. Je serai heureuse d'échanger avec vous sur vos attentes, vos objectifs et ma méthode de travail. Au plaisir de vous aider dans votre quête de la maitrise de l'anglais. À bientôt ! Hello my name is Audrey! I'm a student in international relations and Chinese foreign languages at INALCO.

That's why I offer you my help! I am a French native from Poitou Charente. I traveled all around the world when i was a teenager and a young adult especially in Asia. Now i'm finishing my studies in Paris. For several years, I have been teaching English to children and adults of all levels. I have accompanied Koreans, Iranians, French etc. My goal is that you enjoy learning English and reach your goals. The course will be totally personalized and adapted to your needs and interests. I will also introduce you to the culture during our lessons (current events, highlights of the year, etc.) because in order to learn a language you need to understand the culture of the country. My classes will focus on the five skills: speaking, writing, listening, reading and grammar. Of course, if you wish to work on only one aspect in particular, this will be possible. We can use the material you have or we can also work with the resources I have. At your request and according to your needs I can give you homework to continue your efforts outside of our classes.

English Tutoring for Children and Teenagers - Beg-Adv
Hello! I have been teaching English for five years, to adults and children alike. I offer classes that are uniquely adapted to the students needs and their interests. My aim is to build my student's confidence, by following their line of inquiry — engaging in a rich, and increasingly challenging dialogue with the individual. My classes are for children and teenagers, who want to: . Develop and widen their vocabulary; . Need help preparing for an exam, a paper or an important interview; . Gain confidence in spoken English; . Attain a fluent level of spoken and written English We will begin by identifying the student's greatest interests — those subjects they are most curious about and topics that stimulate them. These topics will be "stimulators", fueling conversations and language activities that the student themselves will eventually lead. Then, we will identify the student's biggest worries regarding the English language — where they are confused, or tend to make mistakes. This will form the workshop part of the lesson, focused on overcoming tricky grammatical mistakes and revising more complex linguistic and phonetic errors. I also offer the possibility of following a Cambridge exam oriented syllabus, such as Family and Friends, Cambridge Starters, Movers, Flyers, or B1, B2. After 8 years of teaching I have found this tailored approach to be, by far, the most effective. I look forward to collaborating with you soon!
