​Improve Your English Language Skills with a Tutor
Learn from an experienced native English teacher with international TEFL credentials. I specialise in Young Learner and Beginner English, but regardless of your age or fluency level, I can tailor make a package to suite your individual needs.

Private Tutoring in English, and Language Exam Preparation
Do you want to become confident and proficient in English? I am a patient and motivated teacher, who would love to help you transform into a fluent English speaker! I studied Linguistics, the science of languages at the University of Cambridge, which means I am going to be able to recognise which aspects of your English knowledge need the most help. This is going to be very advantageous for you when going through the perhaps more confusing aspects of English grammar and pronunciation. I am also familiar with a number of English language exams (e.g. IELTS), and would be happy to help you prepare for these. The content and the pacing of my classes depend on your needs - whether you are a beginner, a restarter, intermediate or someone who lacks confidence when speaking English. In any case, expect a lot of dialogues! These are elementary for building courage for using the language. I also give homeworks, because I feel they are important to consolidate your knowledge. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!

Cours d'anglais avec emphase sur les fondamentaux théoriques et grammaticaux ainsi que pratiques adaptés au niveau de l'apprenant
Je propose des cours du début de secondaire aux niveaux les plus avancés (du A1 jusqu'au C2). Je suis diplômé avec mention très bien (grade A) de l'ESOL de Cambridge depuis 9 ans et je possède déjà une expérience considérable dans le domaine de l'enseignement particulier. En attendant, je dispose de beaucoup de temps libre pour vous dispenser des cours sur mesure, répondant à vos attentes et effaçant vos appréhensions/angoisses, tout cela en visant exclusivement la réussite et l'accomplissement d'objectifs fixés au préalable ensemble de manière réaliste en termes d'investissement temps/efforts. Relecture de travaux, de mémoires, aide à la rédaction d'essais académiques, préparation aux tests du secondaire, remédiations, remises à niveau, emphase sur le lexique, prise de confiance à l'oral et traductions sont autant de services que je propose, de domaines où je veux vous amener à exceller ou quoi qu'il en soit, à vous surprendre vous-même. Le support théorique, indispensable, va de paire avec une confrontation de ladite théorie aux réalités linguistiques quotidiennes (usage réel, niveaux et registres de langage, variété d'accents, expressions idiomatiques, faux amis, phrasal verbs, TP, fautes courantes, 'slang'...).

French or English classes for children and adults, conversational or structured
I'm offering French or English classes for children, where they would learn through games and conversations, according to their age and language level. I have a lot of experience teaching foreign languages to children, as I have been a teacher assistant and an international au pair before. I can also help out with homework. For adults, I can do conversational French or English lessons where the subjects vary depending on the person's interests and language level as well. I can also help choose and work from a book, if the person wishes a more structured learning environment. About me, I'm a French native currently studying at the University of Maastricht, I speak English and French fluently and I'm always willing to practice my Spanish with people!

Listening, Understanding, and Writing Skills in French or English.
I tutor in French and English to a wide range of students, from beginners to more advanced students. The point for both classes is to give beginners a glimpse into the beauty of the language and to introduce them to the basics in an entertaining and enjoyable way. The ultimate objective of these classes would be to ensure that beginners, by the end of the lessons, have acquired fair understanding, listening, and writing skills. On the other hand, advanced students are expected to experience even further progress in such skills. It must be noted that I will try to give each lesson in the targeted language, privileging the latter as much as possible during the lesson so as to help the student dive into the language.

Native en anglais, ayant habité aux Etats-Unis, en Angleterre et au Canada, je donne cours aux personnes débutantes à avancées. Que ce soit pour des raisons scolaires ou simplement parce que vous avez un intérêt pour la langue, je donne des cours d'anglais pour tous les âges.
