English and Test Prep Tutoring. Learn how to pick up a language

I specialize in tutoring Eglish for adults and students who are interested in or are professionals in areas such as literature, art, psychology, philosophy. I am also a poet so we read, analyze and learn by heart a lot of poems in my classes. I think it is the shortest way to pick up a language.
We memorize new words by the method of thesaurus when we compare synonims and explore links between words and specify connotations. My goal is to keep students challenged, but not overwhelmed.

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.

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).

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.

Learn Real English in Real Time. See and Feel Results Fast.
Why choose an English native speaker with over 20 years teaching experience? If you study with me, you'll see rapid development in your English. Lessons are personalised, fun and engaging (no books). Meetings take place online and are based on a highly-developed, verbal approach that stimulates the student's awareness and encourages the student to think, speak and learn in real time. I can give you the expressive power you need to communicate fluently and confidently in any situation in English, spoken or written. I teach a wide variety of people around the world, from students to top professionals in their fields, especially in the Arts. In the course of 22 years I have put close to 1000 students successfully though exams with high grades and helped individuals achieve the results they needed, from, among others, job interviews to speaking on television, radio or on the jury panel of film awards. All you need is a good internet connection. Why not give it a try and see how fast you learn?

English - conversational English and practicing everyday speech
A passionate lover of the English culture and lifestyle, I have acquired official certification equivalent to Cambridge English: Proficiency (CPE) level, corresponding to level C2 in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (the highest level possible). After living in the United States for two years, I am currently pursuing a double major Anglais/Etudes Internationales at the Sorbonne University in Paris. My experience in France has taught me that due to the specific nature of the English language and the limited time to practice it, there is an issue when it comes to conversational English. This is what my lessons will focus on - everyday conversational English, correction of accent, learning about stress and sentence dynamics which help you to sound more natural and understanding of phonology and the IPA transcription. If you are shy when it comes to expressing yourself in front of others; if you find yourself lacking the "proper" expressions or tools to engage in everyday conversations; or if you just want to learn what does "hitting the books", "to lose your touch", or to "pitch in" mean - this class is probably for you. And I promise you we'll have a lot of fun while learning! Note: This class focuses mainly on American English.
