About Me

Hello everyone,

Bilingual actor trained at the Acting in English Cours Florent (Paris) I practice English every day! It is a language that I particularly like for its efficiency and its exoticism. This is why I went to live and work in London where I personally made a play in Camden (staged, writing, production, promotion ...). By following I went to Toronto in Canada to think about my future. And no doubt, I still want to be an actor but as it is not a lucrative job in the first place, back in Paris I teach English and French to students who are willing and willing to progress!
In my free time I also write scripts in English ...

I'm already looking forward to meeting you !!

Because of logistic issues it was a short first lesson. However, I felt quite comfortable, and I'm awaiting my next lesson with enthusiasm.
Très bon professeur. Valentin sait mettre à l'aise dès le premier cours. Il s'adapte au niveau de l'élève pour lui permettre de progresser. Le contenu des cours est flexible ce qui permet de travailler ce que l'on souhaite en fonction du moment. Je recommande vivement !
Extremely patient, which is a good thing for someone who a beginner.
My experience with Valentin has been great. He was quick to respond to my initial request for a lesson. Our lessons are always high quality, and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to improve French of any level.
Valentin is fantastic! He is a positive, encouraging, and patient tutor! I am visiting from the States and needed some basic lessons. I highly recommend him.
...
Actor of formation having lived abroad (London and Toronto), I love English and I would like everyone to know how to speak it! There is indeed a delay in France with respect to English, which is remembered is spoken worldwide and is the first language of communication! And this comes mainly from the lack of confidence in the oral. That is why with you I will work above all on the ease and the confidence but also on the pronunciation and the rhythm.
Being an actor myself, I know the vagaries of the job that is always more surprising! I adapt to the student's profile and seek to build trust and respect. So IF YOU ARE a professional or amateur actor, I could help you understand the character, make it credible. We will search together the clues in the text and the story. I can help you with your auditions, your roles or to learn to give up as an actor. IF YOU ARE NOT "in the middle" but try to liberate yourself, to feel yourself exist, I could also help you through games and theatrical techniques. Obviously the first moments, we feel very ridiculous then we realize that it can be quite exhilarating to be ridiculous in the society in which we live ...

Ludovic
Methodological support Help with homework Math and French level school and college
TIPS FOR A MORE. Often children do not know how to do it. Methodology at school is not always explicitly detailed. It is necessary to have a punctual or regular support from a qualified person to overcome the difficulties encountered. Work at home is also very important because it prepares for autonomy but for that you have to learn to organize. It is therefore essential to be guided to successfully complete schooling. I am also able to make notional reminders if necessary. That's what I propose to myself. Cordially.

Paul
Homework help and tutoring in literary subjects (French, philosophy, history, English ...)
I am a student in khâgne at Lycée Louis-le-Grand and I obtained the baccalaureate series L in 2013 with the mention very well. The courses are aimed at students ranging from high school to high school and concern only literary subjects (French, philosophy, history-geography, English, writing, Latin ...). I can provide preparation and support for exams (patent, bac ...) as well as for classes and assignments during the year. The objective of the courses is to begin by working on the methodology of a homework assignment, then to come to the acquisition of the necessary knowledge and finally to develop in the student a curiosity around the studied subject.

Adrien
Course in literary subjects (French - History-Geography- Philosophy)
Student in Literary Studies (BAC + 5) offers methodological assistance in literary subjects (French, History-Geography, Philosophy). My primary goal is to teach students how to get the right reflexes in front of a question or a text: for that, I will inevitably return on the "unavoidable" (dissertation, comment, explanation of text). My second goal is to develop the literary culture of students: it is as much about discovering authors who can complete their courses, as to understand how to be intelligently reused of its culture and what it already knows.

Guillaume
French course / literature / philosophy / tutoring
Student in Berlin master of philosophy, mention TB bac, I speak English and German, and jemaîtrise Greek and Latin, I offer courses at all levels (primary, college, high school and adult) in French, English, literature and philosophy. Especially for French, I favor the oral and the confidence in the language to learn. With the help of videos, authentic written or oral documents, I hope that in each hour the four skills are implemented. Speak, write (active), understand a text and understand an audio. By working this way, with the help of a manual that works with language levels, I hope to encourage students and show them that a language is learned, with gradual and well-defined progress! the goal is to learn little by little, and to trust each other!
