English Conversation and English Test Prep Tutoring

Hi! I specialize in teaching English at the conversational level, as well as English for test preparations. Having worked in a primary school for years, I am comfortable with preparing students of all ages for Cambridge language exams like the Movers and Flyers tests. Having studied multiple foreign languages myself, as well as having studied methods of teaching English as a foreign language in the classroom, I believe that you'll find me a helpful and knowledgable teacher.

About Me

Hello! Thank you for your interest in learning English from me. As a student of languages myself (I studied French at University and Spanish while living in Madrid), I'm thrilled to share my experiences with likeminded individuals.

I believe that the best way to learn any foreign language is to have fun while doing it. Therefore, I'm always aiming to keep our lessons as fun and engaging as possible. Whether that's involving pop culture in the lesson plan or focusing on current events in the world, I'd like learning English to not feel like a chore. That's how my French and Spanish teachers taught me, and that's how I like to teach others.

It is of course imperative that students participate in order to learn- there's only so much that can be taken from working out of a book! You must apply the skills you've read about to the real world. For this reason, I put a strong emphasis on class participation. It's important to talk as much as possible, even if you don't know how to say exactly what you'd like to say. Making mistakes is part of learning anything, but especially a language.

Besides teaching, I enjoy practicing sports like basketball and football, cooking new and interesting foods, traveling, reading, and writing. My interests are broad, so I'm sure we will find things in common to chat about.

Education

I graduated from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana with a B.A. in French Studies and an English minor. While at university I maintained a 3.5 GPA (3.8 major GPA) and gained recognition on the Dean's List. After undergrad, I attended a two year postgraduate program in Madrid, Spain where I studied methods of teaching English as a foreign language in the classroom.

Experience / Qualifications

-Two years of experience teaching in a primary school in Madrid.
-One year of experience teaching in a secondary school in Paris.
-One year experience substitute teaching in the United States.
-Certificate in methods to teach English as a foreign language in the classroom from Comillas Pontifical University.

English Classes for Intermediate & Advanced Students
I have over 600+ hours of tutoring experience, am a novelist, published by Cassava and Scholastic and an Oxford graduate with an MA Oxon in English Language and Literature, I’ve also got a Master’s in Philosophy where I focused on philosophy of language. My classes are tailored to the needs of the student but are steeped in research based methods on how to attain a language swiftly, speak with confidence, master nuance, and be culturally adept as well. Too often language courses forget to tailor language to the context. Mine do not.

Acquire the American or British English accent!
As a student in preparatory classes, rigor is one of my traits that allows me to assimilate the lessons well with simple and effective approaches. The English language like any other language requires perpetual and gradual monitoring. My method is based on the use of any physical means to let the language insinuate, in other words, to listen and communicate then to master the language tools. The idea is to trace the foundations, the accent in the unconscious which will automatically translate the grammatical courses without complications.

MacKenzie
American language assistant who works as an English tutor
Good morning ! My name is Mackenzie, I'm American from Chicago and I'm 22 years old. I live in Avignon and I work as an English assistant. I would like to work as an English tutor. I went to one of the best liberal arts universities in the United States, Wellesley College, where I received my degree in French and political science. So, if you are looking for someone to help you write academic or professional texts in English, I can help you. I worked as a French tutor for high school students in the United States for 2 years. I was a babysitter for several years for children from 6 months to 12 years old. Also, I love cooking, painting, knitting and many types of art, if you or your child want an English course where you cook and create art too. At university, I did comparative cultural research of France and the United States, so I can talk about cultural differences. My work experience includes: library work, cultural research, and research using computers to combat misinformation, refugee resettlement, and most recently politics as part of an Illinois Governor's campaign. .

English Essentials for Travelling: Simple sentences, phrases and words to make yourself understood.
The theme of the lessons will be "Traveling in an English-speaking country". Lessons will be designed to teach the student sentences in English that they will find useful in real life. The student can choose sentences they want to learn in English and the lessons will be adjusted based on the age of the student. I can also assist with pronunciation. For children, as lessons continue the lessons can focus more on simple sentence construction in English. For adults who already speak English, we can work on high level words and phrases depending on the context, for example: business emails. These lessons will be focused on the words and phrases the pupil wants to learn/ would find helpful.

Learn English or Spanish in a simple and relaxed way with a student
English and Spanish are very important nowadays. I studied these two languages for many years, and I have many times been in contact with foreign people with whom the only language to communicate was English or Spanish. I suggest you school classes or more advanced for those who wish to improve or simply upgrade. Do not hesitate to write to me, I will answer you with pleasure.
