English conversation with a Cambridge University graduate

I take an immersive approach, with conversation the medium for teaching grammar. This keeps my lessons light-hearted and fun, without grammar and syntax becoming a chore. My language degree from Cambridge University has helped me understand and appreciate the English language all the more. We pick a theme at each class and the conversation itself is an organic process (as conversations are). Homework would consist of reading around a topic in English in preparation for the next class. This approach suits everyone, from a child to an adult.

About Me

I am a young recent Cambridge graduate and a passionate teacher who likes to build a conversational but thorough approach to learning English. I like to cater towards the student's interests to create and enjoyable atmosphere. Together we establish a theme for each class which initiates the conversation -- perhaps ranging from British/American current affairs to English-speaking films, for example. Through the conversation, grammar will be picked up on and discussed too. All I ask is that the student does a little English reading in preparation for each class and goes through the notes made from the previous class. Overall, my classes are relaxed but comprehensive and can be adjusted to students of many ages and levels of English.

Education

I have a recent Cambridge University degree in Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic studies with a particular emphasis on Celtic languages. As a result, I have a good understanding of the structure, syntax and grammar of language. I also completed an Art Foundation from Falmouth University.

Experience / Qualifications

I am a tutor as part of the English organisation 'Tutorful'. I am also a member of 'Babylangues'. I have had experience teaching the violin which means I am familiar with more practical, hands-on learning too.

Marie-Christine
CP Home Teacher at 3 rd tutoring and classes
I have BAC + 3 License of Sciences of Education. I taught long years in primary school (all classes) and then I was a secondary school student, I also did tutoring during tutorials for college students. Since 6 years, I am a teacher of school support and courses CP> 3 eme, at home. For school support I help the student to do his homework, explains what he or she did not understand, I always find the gaps to work with the student when he has little homework, in the form of cards made. Classes or tutoring at home have the advantage of adapting to a single student, hence an individualized pedagogy: "tailor-made" for the student. I invest 100% for each student and put everything at his disposal to optimize the academic success of my students. Serious, patient, psychologist, pedagogue I am very motivated for this job that I love for years.

Cyprien
Former student of ES (mention very good in the baccalaureate) gives course of SES, English or history in Marseille
Currently studying political science in Lille, I want to find a job using my achievements of high school according to the method taught in preparatory class for examinations of IEP. The pupil is initially aware of his difficulties and misunderstanding. Then, tasks and recitations are realized to improve the level of the student in the subject. The principle is to fill the gaps of the student according to a logic of interaction with the teacher. To avoid getting close to formal schooling, visual aids can be used. The student may also be encouraged to write lesson cards and to synthesize the course given by the high school teacher.

Language courses (Spanish, English, Portuguese)
Learning a foreign language is increasingly an important asset, not only to enrich one's CV but also one's cultural background. In an increasingly internationalized world, increasing your language skills seems to be a good option. As a lover of languages, I offer courses in Spanish, English and Portuguese. I am bilingual Portuguese-French. I have a very high level in Spanish (C1 level) and I speak very good English too (B2 level). I want to add, that I speak also, although less well of all the languages that I mentioned above, the Italian. But it's a good level, which I'm sure could help young middle and high school students to progress. The course will be adapted to the level of the student and, based on the demands and the difficulties of the pupil.
