About Me

I have recently relocated from South Africa to the Netherlands.

Working to develop people in language skills and opening up new opportunities for them is a personal interest.

Having spent 15 years in an academic environment, I have developed teaching skills and expertise for various levels of learning. I have lectured different transport and logistics courses, written course material and supervised research projects up to Masters level to completion. Furthermore, I am a published author in accredited academic journals and have presented at international conferences. I am also a tutor for online courses.

In South Africa, English is often the second, third or even fourth language of many students and I had to adapt my teaching to cater for all levels of English competency. While this was especially difficult with scientific terminology, I evolved my teaching style from read and write to understand and apply.

I consider myself to be a friendly, approachable person and find it easy to engage with people. Teaching is one of my passions and beyond my full-time employment, I taught reading and writing skills at a home for orphan and destitute children. I also assisted with school projects and provided guidance, motivation and emotional support.

As a person who is also in the process of learning a new language in a new country, I can identify with the challenges and experience on a personal level.

English for professionals (refresher, fluency, conversation ...)
***** My availability varies according to the slots reserved by the pupils / students. To gain efficiency, I will send you a link to my "google agenda". You will be able to position our sessions more quickly ***** Hello, I offer you my expertise and experience to (re) upgrade you in English. I can intervene at the following levels: - School: * (primary school: initiation) => Cambridge tests 'Starters - Movers - Flyers' & others. * (college-high school) => remediation / upgrading in grammar + other language activities such as Oral / Writing Comprehension or Continuous Speaking / Interaction) - Superior (CPGE, IEP prep, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First Certificate, Advanced Certificate ...) (Preparation for tests such as "Tremplin-Passerelle-Passerelle2- Ecricome" ...) (English for Interns in medicine ...) (Linguistics / phonology / didactics for the English CAPES ... or other competition like the CRPE) - I accompany and have accompanied many adults who needed to be / become truly successful in speaking / writing in English as part of their professional activities (fluency, accent reduction, grammar. ...) or as part of resuming studies. Note that I am not this young student who had a good mark in the Baccalaureate or this other who is supposedly bilingual. I am a linguist by training and author of a textbook in this capacity. I have been teaching as a teacher in the National Education since 1995. Teaching cannot be improvised. It is not an activity that we do "like that". I offer you the fruit of my expertise and my experience as well as the perspective of an educational professional who knows the system perfectly from the "inside". By the way, did you know that to have 10/20 in the Baccalaureate, it is enough to have level A2 (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd year) so I let you imagine the despair of students who are starting higher studies and who learn that they will have to obtain at least 750 in the TOEIC! (the equivalent of level B2!) to see their diploma approved. 2 tips for students: "your TOEIC / IELTS score, it is from L1 that you must prepare it" "if you want to be able to write - English read, understood and spoken in your CV - well it is also from L1 that you must train yourself to speak English, to read in English and of course to write. * Daily monitoring possible via the internet: to learn modern foreign languages, it is always more profitable to work a little each day. It is possible to consider placing slots of 15 or 20 minutes of intensive work on one type of activity several times a week. (See the "memorization" video in the 'Surfonsdoc Orléans-Tours' channel on youtube) -> Look for "debbinghaus curve" on google. * Each course is prepared according to your personal needs. Feedback is always given at the end of the session. * One of the fields in which I specialize is "phonology": intonation, word stress, connections ... In short, everything that relates to oral grammar. If you are tired of being immediately spotted as the man in the video "the i rabbit (you will find it in a few clicks on youtube)) See you soon! Please do not hesitate to contact me for further details.

Private lessons for German - English - French
The student informs me of the concepts he wishes to see or review in French, German and / or English; I adapt and agree to give him a course of the best possible quality, as well as to provide him with exercises and advice adapted to his needs. I have completed my Bachelor in Multilingual Communication (Faculty of Translation and Interpretation of the University of Geneva) and am available to help other students and to share my knowledge with them. I started learning German over 15 years ago and have also completed numerous language stays in Germany, including a semester as an au pair with daily language lessons and an Erasmus semester as part of of my Bachelor. Furthermore, I have been speaking German daily in my private life for over two years now. As for English, I started learning it over 10 years ago; I also did a semester in Liverpool with daily lessons in a language school and have continued to practice it ever since, both personally and at university. I have obtained an official certificate attesting to my level of German (telc Deutsch C1 Hochschule), as well as a certificate attesting to my level of English (Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English - C1). Regarding French, it is my mother tongue and I am improving it day by day, particularly as part of my training as a translator at the University of Geneva. Ps: During the lockdown linked to Covid-19, I continued to give online lessons (via Skype); these classes went very well and were just as effective as the in-person classes. Given the current circumstances and because I no longer live in Geneva, I offer online courses (via Skype and with the help of other IT tools). I look forward to helping you in your learning process and passing on my passion for languages to you through our meetings! We look forward to meeting you soon! Elodie
