About Me

Education

MSc in Global Health
 — Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden (2013-2014)
BA (Hons) in Politics and International Studies: 2:1 — 
The University of Warwick, United Kingdom (2008-2011)

Experience / Qualifications

Since 2016, I have worked with a number of students to improve their professional English skills. This has included individuals who were applying to new jobs, looking to solve work-place problems or just wanting to feel more comfortable around English-speaking colleagues. I tailor my lessons to the needs of the particular student and keep things more focused on practical learning and skills, rather than theory or grammar. I do not posses formal teaching qualifications, and instead teach based on my own professional experience. I hope the testimonials from my previous students demonstrate the success of this method.

My main job is in consulting. I co-founded a company, Outsight International, in 2020 and have been working on various technology and innovation projects focused on humanitarian aid with EPFL, NGOs and UN organisations since.

Beyond this, I posses a wide range of experience covering development, health, innovation, technology and research. Having worked in DRC, Zambia and India with Medecins Sans Frontières as well as with other NGOs, I am well acquainted with the practical realities of delivering impact in 'the field', in the long and short term.

For a number of years, I have been consulting with a range of humanitarian organisations, universities and companies to improve innovation processes and outcomes. In particular, this has included managing projects focused on improving healthcare provision in hard to reach contexts through new technologies.

I am an experienced facilitator and has been closely involved in efforts to improve collaborations between the nonprofit, academic and commercial sectors in recent years. I also has significant experience in humanitarian monitoring and evaluation, as well as utilising human-centered design methodologies. Before this, previous roles included government, tech, business and research sectors.

I am based in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Louis is a very nice and friendly guy. He is well organized to teach and has good methods. Even though he might be able sometimes to explain some advanced grammar rules as he is not a professional teacher, he will always give explanations and even make researches afterwards to enlight you.
He has prepared the apprenticeship program that meets my needs. I improve my vocabulary every lesson because Louis remains attentive and makes the necessary corrections. Several supports are used: current books, movies, writing mails, image descriptions and discussions about actuality. Teacher dynamic, reliable, punctual and serious. To recommend. Thank you Louis
Mon ami et moi recommandons chaudement les cours de Louis. Nous avons débuté les leçons pour maintenir et améliorer notre niveau de conversation que ce soit dans le privé ou dans le cadre de nos emplois respectifs. Louis nous a proposé des cours très interactifs, axés sur la conversation, en lien avec des thèmes d'actualité. Bien que nos niveaux d'anglais ne soient pas parfaitement égaux, Louis a trouvé des exercices adaptés à chacun d'entre nous. Nous le recommandons sans hésiter à toute personne désireuse d'apprendre et de se perfectionner.
When I started lessons with Louis my goal was to deal with an English manager who was not nice with me... I explained my needs to Louis, then he prepared oral and writing exercises for me. He corrected many details for me so that I can be more confident by improving my technique in conversations. At meanwhile I got an interview to a new job, so I asked Louis to help me to prepare interviews as well. We worked on many possible questions in interviews and I was asked to replied and explained exactly those situations that we prepared together. I was able to replied in English fluently and confidently. Finally I got this job ! Thank you very much Louis.

Private lessons in languages and methodology of work
Passionate about languages, I am convinced that learning a foreign language, or even working more thoroughly in one's mother tongue, is a great wealth in terms of openness and self-awareness. It is also a very valuable tool for learning how to organize your thoughts and structure your ideas; what we all need in our daily lives. Holder of a Master in Sociology of Communication and Media and Journalism (University of Friborg) and a Master of Arts (University of Lausanne), I offer private courses entirely based on the needs and expectations of the person. The goal is that the use and learning of the language brings something concrete, especially in terms of work methodology. I teach French (school or foreign language) and English at all levels and to people of all ages.

ENGLISH LESSONS, all levels (beginner to university), 5 years teaching experience
I am a qualified teacher from England, I have a BA and MA in Linguistics (English). I am currently making research on the best methods for teaching a second language (such as English) to adults and children. I have been teaching children and adults for 5 years, from beginner to university level. The best way to improve in a new language is to be taught by a qualified English speaker. :-) I adapt my lessons to the level and needs of the student. We can work on grammar, reading, speaking and listening. I usually use the news in English to encourage the student to express themselves, correct pronunciation while reading and it is an excellent way for the student to acquire new expressions/vocabulary. I also give exercises based on grammar and make sure to apply what we have learned in real life context. If you wish, we can also work on specific topics such as business. I am also qualified for the IELTS/TOEFL, A-LEVELS or the correction of written work. I can deliver the lessons online if required. Don't hesitate to contact me for further information. I'm looking forward to meeting you. :-)

I am particularly willing to help with homework / tutoring in French, history of art and religious studies.
