    About Me

    So far I have lead an extremely varied life including work in Classical symphony orchestras, Jazz big bands, Universities and being a consultant for film composers and businesses.
    I have just moved to Nice after 30 years in France, mostly in Paris, St. Nazaire and Poitiers.
    I enjoy meeting people from different cultures and have travelled extensively on several continents. I have lived in The U.S., England, New Zealand and Turkey but am a citizen and resident of France.
    I enjoy teaching because each student learns in their own way and the challenge for the teacher is to discover the best pathway to help the student advance. Teaching is a collaboration and both sides benefit and learn from the educational experience.
    English opens doors in many places around the world and provides access to an unlimited amount of literature from all periods. I Look forward to joining you in your search and discovery of the English language.

    M.M. From Rice University, Houston, Texas
    B.M. From Manhattan School of Music with oboe lessons at Juilliard, New York City

    English Lessons for children/teenagers with a native English speaker
    I am an Irish student currently on my Erasmus year in France. I study English literature and French. I aim to become a teacher in the future. I have quite a bit of experience with children: I have completed work experience in a local primary school, I gave private english lessons to refugee children in my local area, I worked as a counsellor in a Summer camp in New Jersey, USA, Summer 2018. My aim is to teach children English in a relaxed and fun environment, keeping them focused with games and fun activities while improving their grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. I will assign some small homework assignments after each session in order to keep them practising their English when I am not with them. I will keep track of the children's progress for myself, themselves, and their parents.

    Anissa
    English tutoring / Learn the language or reinforce it
    English is a language studied at an early age in schools but not necessarily understood and integrated by students. The courses I intend to undertake will strengthen or even improve the level of students. I propose courses and support. Those involved in these courses can be between 3 and 20 years old, or even older. My level of English and my ability to explain and understand enable me to teach a large age group.
