Learn English with an Experienced Cambridge University Graduate! (Tutorat en anglais)

I'm a native English speaker and a Cambridge philosophy graduate with a good deal of experience teaching English to students of all ages and nationalities. I'm a friendly and easy-going person, and I aim to create an open and unintimidating atmosphere in which to learn with my students. I am currently working at UNESCO in Paris.

I am able to teach spoken and written English, grammar, pronunciation, literature, and reading skills to all ages. I cater my lessons according to my students' needs; a lesson of advanced English could consist of high-level literature analysis and discussion, while I am also able to keep young students engaged with fun language-games and a good deal of enthusiasm.

I am also available to teach critical thinking, philosophy, and help with university applications or proofreading.

I have worked for 3 well-regarded summer schools, and have taught English privately for a number of years.

Please feel free to get in touch if you would like to know a bit more about me!

About Me

Hi there! I'm a Cambridge philosophy graduate with a good deal of experience teaching English to students of all ages and nationalities. I'm a friendly and easy-going person, and I aim to create an open and unintimidating atmosphere in which to learn with my students. I love my subject, and think it's important to teach in a way that makes studying as enjoyable as possible. I am currently working at UNESCO in Paris.

Education

Philosophy, BA, University of Cambridge (High 2.1, 2017)

3 A*s at A-Level in English Literature, Philosophy, and Italian
4 As at AS-Level in English Literature, Philosophy, Italian, and History
10 A*s at GCSE in a range of subjects including English and Maths

Experience / Qualifications

I have taught English in both classroom settings and in 1-on-1s, to students ranging from 8 to 18 years old. I have had the pleasure of working for several highly regarded summer schools for students learning English as a foreign language.

As a teacher for the Cambridge-based Seminar for Advanced English Studies (SAES), I taught English and philosophy to German students aged 16 and over in preparation for their national exams. In lessons I covered poetry and textual analysis, as well as grammar and vocabulary classes. While at SAES, I taught dozens of students privately over a period of 2 months, and learned how to engage and capture the interests of particular students with different personalities.

Working for Bell Beyond in 2016, I taught English to Italian children aged 8-9 in a fully immersive (English only) environment. Working with the children, I learned to improvise, to be positive and supporting, and to be approachable and friendly. It was also necessary to communicate very slowly and clearly, and to find ways of teaching through games and other fun activities.

As a mentor for Cambridge Immerse in 2016, I organised and ran philosophy seminars and mock-interviews for potential applicants to Cambridge university. I held one-on-one sessions as well as group discussions with hopeful applicants.

Jake is helping me improving my fluency before moving to the U.S., and after a few lessons I feel more comfortable in speaking. You can talk about everyday stuff as well as big issues with him in a relaxed atmosphere. He listens to you and cares about your needs. He is an easy-going person and he also well-prepared, he combines kindness and professionality. Also, his British accent really helps you improving your listening skills. Last but not least, he is very punctual (I'm Italian...), and the fact that he comes to you really helps if you're busy. I definitely recommend him!
He is very kind, clever, and well prepared for the lesson. I had a very good impression of his professionalism in the first lesson. He tried his best to know the client's needs and realize in the class.

Marilyn
Cours de langues allemande, anglaise et française.
Les langues et les cultures étrangères étant ma passion, c'est dans le domaine de l'enseignement ou de l'interprétation que je vois mon avenir professionnel. Pour cette Raison,je propose de faire naître chez des élèves désireux l'amour et l'aisance tant orale qu'écrite dans les langues que j'enseigne. Le cours sera adapté en fonction des besoins de chaque élève ( débutant, aide aux devoirs, préparation aux examens, exercices de support pour suveiller l'évolution etc) tout en gardant pour seul but de renforcer les acquis et combler les lacunes ciblées. Jeune étudiante en 3ème année de LÉA, je peux comprendre que certains soient fâchés avec les langues et je me propose d'y remédier.

Camille
Soutien de grammaire en Anglais/ Préparation aux épreuves de bac
Etudiante en science, l'anglais est pour moi un outil indispensable: tous les articles scientifiques sont rédigés en Anglais ! J'ai eu moi-même la chance de suivre des cours d'Anglais particuliers qui m'ont permis d'avoir des bases extrêmement solides en grammaire et de cette manière d'obtenir une note de 20/20 au bac d'Anglais ! J'ai actuellement un niveau C1-"Maîtrise internationale professionnelle". Je vous propose donc pendant les cours que nous aurons ensemble de travailler sur les bases de grammaire Anglaise ! En effet ce sont les fautes de grammaire et de syntaxes qui sont les plus pénalisées lors des corrections des examens ! Et une fois ces bases acquises, la rédaction et l'expression orales seront beaucoup plus fluides ! Je saurai bien entendu m'adapter au niveau de l'élève (débutant comme avancé) et lui proposer des exercices en accord avec ses difficultés.

English Personnalisée selon les besoins et les centres d'intérêts de l'élève
The best way to learn a language is the same way you learned to speak as child. Rules and formulas are aquired later. We will work depending on your interests, what you like, what you are passionate about. Let's learn how to paint, draw, design while learning english La meilleure façon d'apprendre est la même que celle d'un enfant. Les règles de grammaire sont acquises plus tard. Nous travaillerons en fonction de vos centres d'intérêts, de ce qui vous anime et passionne.
