    Standard English Language Through Literature and Film

    English language is spoken widely. It is useful in education, research, job market, socialising to name a few.

    I offer engaging material - visual, written and spoken - to encourage effective and efficient practice of English to each indvidual’s needs and requirements. For example, after 5-lessons you should be able to write a professional email in English for a job enquiry, read and understand a tricky article, or essay for study reason; be more proficient and confident during an English conversation if you’re attending an interview or examination.

    My students have been predominantly adults who are aiming to improve English spoken abilities for work and professional reasons in a conversational setting - an interesting range of professionals from boating industries, computer geeks, adult industry actors, doctors and a 70-year-old priest(!) in adittion to the standard adolescents engaging with school work and exams.

    I welcome learners of all levels and look forward to building a learning plan that suits your spoken and written English language needs.


    I look forward to meeting you!

    About Me

    Previously, I was working for a recognised government establishment, in addition to engaging with freelance work in the independent film industry and music.

    During my undergraduate degree (2015) I taught English in Barcelona and Galicia, Spain, as part of an internship, targeting all levels of English. My students were predominantly adults who were aiming to improve English spoken abilities for work and professional reasons in a conversational setting - an interesting range of professionals from boating industries, computer geeks, adult industry actors, doctors and a 70-year-old priest(!) in adittion to the standard adolescents engaging with school work and exams.

    I offer engaging material - visual, written and spoken - to encourage effective and efficient practice of English to each indvidual’s needs and requirements. For example, after 5-lessons you should be able to write a professional email in English for a job enquiry, read and understand a tricky article, or essay for study reason; be more proficient and confident during an English conversation if you’re attending an interview or examination.

    Ideally, while learning English you will get an opportunity to visit an English speaking country where you can practice. However, conversational contact with a native who may be able to explain etymological oddities or contextual phrases will nonetheless give you further knowledge and confidence to improve.

    I welcome learners of all levels and look forward to building a learning plan that suits your spoken and written English language needs.

    I look forward to meeting you!

During this time, I have taught English to thousands of students both in the UK and from around the world (children, teens and adults from a wide range of backgrounds). Because I know that every learner is unique and has his or her own personal aims/ objectives, I always tailor the English language learning program specifically to the needs and requirements of the individual. I also know that learning should be an enjoyable experience, and that is exactly how I try to deliver the lessons - in an enjoyable and engaging way so that the learner will develop his or her language skills more quickly. I have an extremely good pass rate regarding students who have either progressed to their desired level in the expected time-frame and/or achieved high marks from exams taken (IELTS, FCE, CAE, Cambridge Young Learner Exams). From this lesson, you can decide if you would like to begin an English language learning program with me.

    Real Teacher Holder of Education, author of textbook (language & phonology) 23 years of experience offers neck
    * Training linguist and author of textbook as such. => I am not a student in L1 who had a good grade in the Baccalaureate. I am a practicing, qualified teacher and holder of National Education. Teaching can not be improvised. This is something I feel I do well with 23 years of experience. I remind parents that to have 10/20 to the Baccalaureate, just have the level A2 (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd) so I let you imagine the despair of engineering students who must get at least 750 to the TOEIC! It's the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course gives rise to a detailed report. * In-depth knowledge of the European Framework. (A1 => C2) * Work of language activities. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, links ... The grammar of the oral. * Adaptation to all levels: => College - High school: beginner, false beginner ... => Post-baccalaureate: TOEIC preparation, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Oral and writings of the grandes écoles such as ENA => Oral and written business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...) => Engineering school: preparation for TOIEC.

    English for beginners , learn to speak english with me via webcam
    English is a West Germanic language that was first spoken in early medieval England and is now a global lingua franca. Named after the Angles, one of the Germanic tribes that migrated to England, it ultimately derives its name from the Anglia (Angeln) peninsula in the Baltic Sea. It is closely related to the Frisian languages, but its vocabulary has been significantly influenced by other Germanic languages, particularly Norse (a North Germanic language), as well as by Latin and Romance languages, especially French. English is the third most widespread native language in the world, after Standard Chinese and Spanish. It is the most widely learned second language and is either the official language or one of the official languages in almost 60 sovereign states. There are more people who have learned it as a second language than there are native speakers. English is the most commonly spoken language in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, Ireland and New Zealand, and it is widely spoken in some areas of the Caribbean, Africa and South Asia. So as you can see we widely need to speak english in nowadays , it's necessary once you are abroad and don't speak the language of the country . Let's start together to learn english , step by step we'll achieve to highest result. I am experienced french teacher , but I also teach english for beginners , armenian , russian and dutch for beginners . I am waiting for you my lovely students

    Private lessons in English (up to intermediate level - B2)
    Student at Sciences Po Toulouse after a BAC ES, I wish to give courses in languages, English and Spanish. I have already been able to give a few lessons in English and Spanish to a student from Terminale to prepare oral exams for BAC. I also teach classes to groups of about ten adults. Indeed, I gave during 8 months French lessons to foreigners. I prepare my classes and materials in advance to be well prepared at the time of the course. I will adapt to any age and any subject taught.
