Real English through Film, TV, Music and Comic books

I'm a film and TV director (Arte, Canal +, etc) born in New York City, based in Paris, and over the past few years have been developing a system of teaching English primarily using film scripts, popular songs, comic books and video recordings. I've taught groups of children and one-on-one sessions with adults to very good results. Years ago I myself learned to speak fluent Czech in Prague while working on a feature-film set, using the script as a guide and then I repeated the experience when I started working here professionally in France. I believe using popular culture such as movies, TV, music and comic books can speed up the process of learning by making it fun and by providing examples of the way native speakers really speak, write and express themselves in a variety of situations. I'm interested in teaching students or adults with some previous foundation in English, but the system is adaptable to most people's needs, even business. Preferably at my office in the 11th. Thanks!

Education

I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts, N.Y.S.S.C, Alfred Universtiy, New York. I graduated with honors in 1998.
In 1998 I became a William J. Fulbright scholar, receiving a Fulbright grant to study and work in Prague, assisting the Czech director Jan Svankmajer. I learned fluent Czech while working on the film which went on to win the Czech Oscar (Česky lev) for the year 2000. I moved to Paris in 2007 and learned fluent French while working as a director for several major French television channels and on a slate of successful music videos.

Experience / Qualifications

I've been teaching groups of students and private one-on-one lessons with adults over the past five years to very positive results. During this time I've been developing my method of teaching English using film and television scripts, popular song lyrics and comic books as a vehicle for learning a foreign language in a more fun, and ultimately, memorable way.
