Creative English: General, ESL and Test Preparation (TOEFL, IELTS, SAT/ACT)

I specialize in ESL and General English for all ages, ranging from beginner children's lessons to help with homework to reviewing and progressing in advanced grammar. I also have extensive experience teaching a a variety of English-focused test preparation: TOEFL, TOEIC, IELTS, SAT/ACT, essays, writing, public speaking, and Interview preparation.

Extra information

I completed my TEFL teacher training in Paris, France in October 2011 and have since taught at more than one English Language School as well as worked with many private students in New York and France. In addition to my teacher training, I am an actor, writer, and performer. Because of this, I have excellent skills with communication, working with others, and being in front of small or large groups of people. I am a native English speaker, capable of very concise, articulate speech, and have a great love of the English language. I achieve amazing satisfaction from inspiring others to communicate. I enjoy the creative elements of teaching and using the students' interests to drive a passion and desire to learn. Amidst my minimal travels across the globe thus far, I have learned that communication is the key to understanding and appreciating each other. In France, I have been able to have a much better understanding of the culture and people I interacted with by knowing their language. Therefore, I believe the more we can express ourselves to those of importance in our experiences, the more fulfilling our lives can be.

About Me

I moved to France in August 2013 after having lived in New York City for ten years. I received my TEFL certificate in Paris 2011 and since then have taught privately and in language schools in Manhattan, NY and in Paris. Most recently, I have been working with test preparation centers focusing on TOEFL, IELTS, and SAT/ACT.

In addition to being a teacher, I am an actor, singer, and writer, so I have wonderful enthusiasm, performance skills, and a love of the English language. Because of this, I have excellent skills with communication, working with others, and being in front of small or large groups of people. For the past year, I have been launching my writing career and have several travel articles published online.

Mother tongue private English lessons - Cours particuliers d'Anglais
ENGLISH - Born in London, I am a student at the University of Exeter in the UK. I currently live in Aix-en Provence, where I attend Sciences Po as part of the Erasmus exchange programme. Aside from English, I also speak Italian fluently, and I am learning French. I have previous experience teaching English as a foreign language, both in private schools and as a personal tutor. The lessons I propose are tailored to the student's needs, ranging from preparation for specific examinations (IELTS, Cambridge etc), to conversation or grammar classes. FRANCAIS - Né à Londres, je suis étudiant de l'Université d'Exeter en Angleterre. Actuellement, j'habite à Aix-en Provence, où j'étudie à Sciences Po dans le cadre d'un échange Erasmus. En plus de parler l'anglais couramment, je parle aussi l'Italien, et je suis en train d'apprendre le français. J'ai eu expérience précédente comme enseignant d'anglais à l'entranger, à la fois dans des établissements privés et comme tuteur. Les cours que je propose sont adaptés aux besoins d'étudiant. On peut travailler pour préparer des examens specifiques (comme l'IELTS), ou faire des cours de conversation ou grammaire.

Cours d'anglais - Professeure Franco-Australienne experimentée, Ingenieure diplômée
Nota Bene: Je vis en Australie (9h de décalage), je peux donner des cours de 7h à 11h (début du cours) heure francaise Samedi et dimanche. Pour tous niveaux, mes cours s'adressent à des professionnels, des universitaires ou de simples amoureux de l'anglais ou du français (langue étrangère). Au préalable les besoins spécifiques sont évalués et discutés minutieusement afin de mettre en place un programme adapté. L'objectif général est de permettre à mes étudiants de développer rapidement leurs capacités de compréhension et d'expression grâce à une approche communicative vivante, ancrée dans le quotidien, des activités ludiques et une ouverture sur l'aspect culturel. Toutes les compétences sont travaillées mais une attention particulière est donnée à l'oral à travers l'exploitation pédagogique de nombreux documents audio ou vidéo, des mises en situation, des exercices techniques visant à améliorer les réflexes linguistiques.
