    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.

    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.

Before learning English, it is necessary to arouse the interest of the student, to motivate him to develop new skills, and especially to adapt to his way of thinking, this facilitates learning especially for the little ones .

    Private lessons in Economics - English / English culture
    Currently at the end of preparatory class in economics, and parallel in the second year of licitation of Economy-Management, I wish to offer my help to high school students for English and SES for high school students. I am passionate about the English language and therefore do not offer "academic" courses, but rather discussions to unblock the oral, in a more user-friendly way. As far as the economy is concerned, of course I am also passionate because I chose to study it. These courses may be on a more traditional format, but I will mainly answer questions to understand the course already done in class. My goal is to overcome the difficulties encountered. I am also motivated to help adults if they feel the need for help in English, or if they want to learn economics! I'm in Lyon until the end of May, then Grenoble all the month of June.

    Private tuition or homework help in English and / or Spanish
    Currently a second year student at ISIT Paris. I attended a high school European section literary section that I finalized with my honors baccalaureate. Then, I continued my studies for two years in preparatory literary classes (khâgne / hypokhâge) at Lycée Faidherbe. I specialized in Spanish where I also followed the Old Greek option and an introduction to law. This course has allowed me to acquire a very good level of language either in English (Cambrige certification, native language of my father) or in Spanish, I also have very good foundations in History or Literature thanks to the training that I followed. The language courses will be used to review or acquire the basics necessary for the language, but also to address the culture of the countries using the language in question. In a globalized world like the one where we live learning languages and cultures are necessary in personal life as well as in studies or in the world of work. It will study grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and some aspects of culture or news. The course will be quite varied and diversified.
