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 !!

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.
We spend a week in Paris and saw Valentin for one to one lessons each day at the hotel lobby. Good fun and progress. Thank you so much Valentin.
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 ...

Faustine
Prepare effectively for French and philosophy baccalaureate
My courses are open to all middle and high school students, but especially to those who prepare the baccalaureate of French and philosophy. In giving courses to high school students, I have indeed noticed how much the difficulties they encounter often come from a lack of method and a poor understanding of the requirements of the test. It is by making this observation that I began to direct my private lessons and my group internships towards the baccalaureate preparation, in order to give the students the "weapons" that will allow them to enter the exam serenely, with more than trust. These courses focus on: - UNDERSTAND what philosophical questioning is, and see how philosophy is the chance for everyone to think for themselves / Understand what a literary text is, and how to listen to it. - THE METHOD: it will be necessary to clarify the bases of the test, to explain its requirements - in short, to understand what the dissertation and the commentary of text consist. From this perspective, I will explain: how to approach a subject, understand it, and analyze it. How to structure his reasoning. How to highlight his knowledge. - THE PRACTICE: one will train in a progressive way to the test: question of corpus, dissertation, comment of text ... In this title, the pupils will be asked a personal work to be done at home, between the courses. It is only through this practice that the requirements of the test can be understood in the full sense of the term. I also offer English and Spanish courses, languages that I speak fluently, following many trips abroad. Accustomed to read university memoirs and books, do not hesitate to call on me to correct or help you write your academic or other work.
