Professor of National Education, author of school textbook, 28 years of experience.

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I offer you my services in order to make you truly effective orally / in writing in English. If you have to use English for your professional activity and you don't feel comfortable. If you are tired of being spotted right away as the French. If you still don't know when to use the present perfect / preterite, I'm here to help and take you forward.
* Linguist by training and author of school textbook in this capacity.
I am not that young student who got a good mark in the Baccalaureate or that other who is supposedly bilingual. I have been teaching as a teacher in the National Education since 1995 and I can tell you that teaching cannot be improvised. It is not an activity that we do "like that". I offer you my expertise and my experience.
To have 10/20 in the Baccalaureate, it is enough to have the A2 level (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd year) so I let you imagine the desperation of future engineers who must obtain at least 750 in the TOEIC! (the equivalent of level B2)

About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Twenty years in contact with my students made me an experienced teacher.

I am specialized in phonology (pronunciation, intonation, accentuation ...) and linguistics and co-author of a series of textbooks as such.

I give private lessons because it is for me the opportunity of a real educational face-to-face. A private lesson is a unique moment of exchange where I know that I can really help my pupil / student because we are next to each other.

I love to teach but it is clear that it is difficult to progress a class of 29 college students more or less interested in English and what is more in just 3 times 55 minutes!

I give private lessons because it is also for me the opportunity to give back the desire to learn to those who have lost it.

The supreme reward of a teacher is the fact that his student comes out of the room having learned and / or understood something!

I already support students in the preparation of the TOEIC / IELTS as well as adults who need or want to "upgrade" and / or erase their French accent. I followed CAPES candidates (linguistics, translation, phonology, didactics). In recent years, I ended up agreeing to accompany children attending primary school because it is a completely different approach that is just as stimulating.

I would gladly help students with disabilities / school phobia or dyslexic / out of school.

I can also help punctually in German and / or Latin.

Education

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I got a BAC C (the equivalent of BAC S) a long time ago! I studied in Lille 3, prepared the CAPES in 1994 and I graduated this first time.

Experience / Qualifications

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Since I graduated I have taught at different levels: High School BTS. I accompany students as part of a TOEIC preparation.

Première session très sympa, claire et efficace, hâte de continuer avec Mark.
Mark est très expérimenté et alterne la théorie et la pratique pour un apprentissage complet. Il s'adapte parfaitement au niveau de l'élève et cible parfaitement les axes de progrès. De plus, il est ponctuel et organisé, tout en étant flexible si nécessaire
Je mettrai volontiers 10 étoiles sur 5 à Mark! Mark est passionné et très à l'écoute. J'ai eu à faire à différents professeurs particuliers, mais je n'avais jamais vu une personne aussi investie, humaine et disponible. De mon expérience, d'habitude soit le professeur est très humain, mais les cours sont fouillis et peu spécialisés, soit le professeur est érudit et vraiment maître de son sujet mais moins humain et moins pédagogue (avec un apprentissage moins ludique). C'est la première fois que je vois les qualités de ces deux profils réunies en une seule personne! Quelle chance de l'avoir trouvé! Il facilite réellement l'apprentissage en ce sens qu'il prend réellement en compte mon niveau et me fabrique des cours plus qu'adaptés. Mark ne se contente pas de s'asseoir sur son expertise (indéniable!) et de distiller des connaissances, non il prépare chacun de ses cours pour les adapter au mieux à ma demande (me créant même des fiches de cours personnelles sur Word!) Je suis plus que ravi de cette collaboration! J'ai déjà débloqué certaines choses en seulement 2 cours et je me réjouis d'avance de la suite de mon apprentissage. Je commençais à perdre espoir de pouvoir améliorer mon niveau d'anglais (qui stagne depuis des années), mais ça y est, avec Mark, j'ai maintenant la certitude que je vais pouvoir avancer to a much higher level! Merci pour tout! Looking forward for the next class! Joël
Le professeur accompagne bien ma fille. Il propose aussi des exercices pour s'entraîner. Je recommande
Mark est un professionnel, bon pédagogue que je suis ravie d'avoir choisi. Il répond à mes besoins et c'est un plaisir de travailler avec lui.
***** 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.

Interesting Conversations, improve your speaking skills!
Our lessons are simple. They include discussions about diverse topics extracted from either our daily life or other material (song, video, movie, articles, games, etc..) that can be presented by either of us. We will focus more on the fluency of your speaking and improving your vocabulary.

Private lessons in maths, physics-chemistry, English, Chinese and Arabic
Mathematics and physics-chemistry are the most important and most requested subjects, with me you will become familiar with these two subjects especially if it is in English, and yes, I can teach them in English since I master the English language and also I study Exact Sciences and Sciences for the Engineer in bilingual (but 80% in English). And as today's world is very connected, I could teach you the basics of Chinese and also you will have fun with the Arabic language with its all dialects and its beautiful calligraphy with Chinese. For science, courses are intended for students from primary to high school. For languages, the courses are intended for everyone.

Student in bilingual English / French Master gives English lessons for all
A language course must be above all fun for children, they must learn while having fun! My teaching method is primarily oral, but I can also help your children improve your writing. I start from the same principle for teenagers but by adapting to their tastes to offer them more attractive lessons. I can help them prepare for their end-of-year exams. I can also teach adults, I will put more emphasis on the English culture while having a casual approach. Whether to discover the language, learn for leisure or improve your English, I will meet your needs.

Initiation to English for children from 3 to 12 years old
From colors to grammar The courses offered are designed to build a solid foundation for your child as well as to introduce him to English in an educational and fun way which allows assimilation and restitution of basic knowledge. In order to make the course more attractive the use of images or books that I provide is effective when the concentration and involvement of the student.
