    Discussion of a Book, a Short-Story, a Poem, or a Movie.
    In this class, we analyse and evaluate works of narrative art together. This is how it works: Before each meeting we agree on a short-story or a poem to read (or listen to), or a movie to watch in preparation for the session. If it's a book, it has to be one which we've both read in the past. We can easily determine our mutual reads through apps like Goodreads or Library Thing. The aim of this course is to exercise your capacity for critical and evaluative thinking. By the end of this course, you should be able to produce (in speech or in writing) a coherent and methodical review of a book of fiction, poetry, or a film.

    French, Modern Letters, writing help for all levels
    Writer-proofreader specializing in fiction literature, I exercise my independent activity for authors, publishers, professionals and individuals. In parallel with this activity, I also work as a professor of Modern Letters in secondary education, as well as in the private and associative sector. This allows me to enrich the mastery of my professional skills through a taste for exchange, a sense of transmission and listening to offer original and stimulating support. The service that I offer, in this context, mobilizes a range of diverse skills related to the field of Modern Letters and writing: I am thus able to provide fully personalized support, ranging from advice to layout in going through correction and writing for drafting work and I can also intervene as a private tutor, as I already do elsewhere.

    My students will learn how to write the proper way.
    I teach English writing the way the student can understand it. I give written examples, and show the student how I put together a sentence, and see if they understand it. I can also breakdown the many components of writing and show it in different steps to make it clear to them. For students needing help with essay or creative types of writing within their school classes, I usually have them show me what needs to be done, and move forward from there. It is easy to show the student something when it is related to their class assignments as this gives them a general idea as to how they should approach writing related to their project. First of all, I ask the student what they are having difficulty with when it comes to writing. I also have them present me with their assigned school work so I can see what they are requiring to do. It is always a good idea to keep the written examples short and basic for proper understanding. I ask questions based on what is making it hard for the student to write something, and try to get as much feedback from them regarding whatever written assignment they have been given to complete. My goal is to guide the students in the right correction for their understanding, growth as writers, and being successful during their final exams.

    Poetry: The Art of Attention! Generative prompts, craft discussions, and the chance to workshop your writing.
    We will look outside ourselves to practice noticing in the context of daily life—and noticing what we notice, which will tell us something about ourselves. “Absolutely unmixed attention is prayer,” Simone Weil famously wrote. Absolutely unmixed attention is also one way of thinking about poetry. Presence is a portal. It can feel nearly impossible to stay with what is, now, here. As the poet Marie Howe puts it: “[T]o resist metaphor is very difficult because you actually have to endure the thing itself, which hurts us for some reason.” In this course we will call on metaphor, but also read and write poems that are deeply invested in looking around to see what is here, now.
