    Academic English - Target the Linguistic Skills Needed in an International Academic or Intellectual Career

    Do you speak Academic English? Most tutors can help you with everyday conversation and writing. I specialize in the English you need for a successful international academic career in your field of advanced expertise. A native speaker with a BA in Linguistics from University of Chicago, two MAs, and a nearly completed PhD in Philosophy through Boston College, I have over 13 years of post-secondary education experience and have taught English as a Second Language since 2014. I've published academic papers, taught university courses, presented at international conferences, and have been awarded selective grants. So whether your aim is applying for graduate school, gaining confidence in your intellectual eloquence, or writing the perfect book proposal, I have the background to help you prepare for the very specific set of tasks demanded in higher education in the English-speaking world.

    Depending on your needs, I can help you master the skills you would need to...

    • Explain your research to foreign scholars:
    Learn to freely discuss your topic of research and engage in other high-level conversations with the vocabulary and expression appropriate to an intellectual context.

    • Improve your academic writing and publish in English journals
    Whether targeting the right English journals, honing your style and grammar, or working out the the subtlety of communicating complex ideas in English, I can help you with all stages of the writing process. I've published in English academic journals and specialize in crafting sharp book proposals and grant applications.

    • Present your work at international conferences
    Gain confidence teaching or delivering formal lectures to an international public. From your first abstract submission to your final draft, I can help you improve everything from your content, style, and delivery to effectively target English-speaking audiences.

    The English-speaking world is waiting to hear your great ideas - let's get started!

    About Me

    As a philosopher, it is my job to ask interesting questions, and think about interesting topics. I have 14 years of experience in postsecondary education, with degrees in Linguistics, Religious Studies, and Philosophy. I've learned 6 languages, studied abroad in 3 different countries, and have officially taught students from around the world, both native speakers and those learning English. I would be an excellent teacher for intermediate to advanced speakers who want to target the specific set of academic skills they need to break into the very world of English scholarship.

    Experience / Qualifications

    I have 14 years in higher education in English-speaking institutions which have familiarized me with three separate academic fields. I have also studied abroad in Japan, Germany, and (of course) France, and know how frustrating it can be to sit in language classes that focus on the mundane when your real passion is at a much more sophisticated level.

    Since 2012, I've personally tutored students from around the world of all ages, and in a variety of topics, from Latin to Research Writing to American Music. I began tutoring English as a Second Language in 2014. I've also taught group courses, including my university course in Philosophy.

    Camilla
    Italian, English, French and Tutoring, Conversation
    Je suis doctorante en Linguistique Cognitive au Laboratoire MoDyCo (Université Paris-Nanterre) et j'ai une expérience approfondie dans l'enseignement de la langue italienne. Je donne des cours privés d'italien depuis plusieurs années, j'ai été professeur d'italien dans plusieurs lycées parisiens (ex. Lycée Janson de Sailly, Lycée Duruy, Lycée Claude Monet) et j'ai l'habitude de suivre et de préparer des élèves pour les épreuves du BAC et les examens des certifications linguistiques. Je suis à l'aise avec tout type d'élèves: des enfants, des écoliers et des adultes. Je peux aussi donner des cours spécifiques (ex. apprentissage de l'italien pour questions professionnelles, développement exclusif des compétences orales ou écrites, etc.). Je base mes cours sur l’interaction avec les élèves et leurs besoins occupent la première place. La méthodologie que j'utilise vise à faire passionner l'apprenant de ce qu'il est en train d'apprendre, à le mettre mettre à l'aise, en évitant le plus possible des situations d'embarras linguistique, causées par exemple par un sentiment d'incompétence. Le choix de sujets à traiter peut être discuté et défini ensemble, ainsi que la "modernité" du matériel à utiliser lors des cours.
