    About Me

    Education has been a continual and very important part of my life for many years, be it academic study or vocational learning. Working across several different industries and being in contact with a diverse variety of international people has only added a further wealth of experience into the mix. My experience as an educator has mainly comprised tutoring teens and adults in TOEFL, IELTS and Business English. Teaching has been a pleasure as well as presenting me with interesting challenges that have further built my understanding of what is to be a language facilitator and necessitated an ongoing attention to self-improvement in the pursuit of a more complete skillset.
    I have experience working in Project Management in industries including media, manufacturing and marketing.

    ENGLISH and/or RUSSIAN PRIVATE CLASSES (for all ages)
    Knowing English is really significant nowadays. As it is an international language, almost every field will require specialists who know it and can speak fluently. But does every school provide good teaching? Unfortunately, no. Even if it does, some people still need individual teaching as some people require more attention or unique methods of learning. In this case, welcome to my private classes! You didn’t understand something at school/college/university from your teacher of English? I’ll explain it to you. You already know English, but want to improve your level? I can show you how. If you want to learn some more languages and ready to challenge yourself with it, I can also offer you lessons of Russian. Let’s learn the languages together! Learn English and Russian in a simple way.

    Learn English and Business Management Concepts at the same time (min-MBA)
    Professionals of all ages pursue various forms of an MBA with the intent of developing a robust understanding of management science and the overall business world. I am a recently graduate from the full-time MBA program at UCLA's Anderson School of Management. Having gone through this process myself, I believe this type of education is paramount for young adults and should be delivered at an earlier juncture prior to college (such that they can make the most informed degree/career decision). I intend to condense the core elements of an MBA degree into concepts that will resonate with students at a high school level. I will communicate this material to students through English such that they not only learn the language, but how to articulate their thoughts on all business matters.

Essay writing is a huge area of focus in my classes as well!

This excludes the thousands of other students who have been able to secure university entries or who have qualified for top-notch jobs thanks to their newly-learnt English skills.

The very moment they pass and thank me is something I live for day and night!

    I can describe my lessons as funny and enthusiastic. I am an enthusiastic teacher because i want my students to feel that i am higly spirited and faithful that i can teach them well, they can adopt it and they will become better when it comes to verbal, written and comprehension of the language. I am friendly because i want to make my students feel that speaking Italian or English can empower them to share ideas and do business outside their nation and throught it, the opportunities that they can get are limitless.

    English for professionals (refresher, fluency, conversation ...)
    ***** My availability varies according to the slots reserved by the pupils / students. To gain efficiency, I will send you a link to my "google agenda". You will be able to position our sessions more quickly ***** Hello, I offer you my expertise and experience to (re) upgrade you in English. I can intervene at the following levels: - School: * (primary school: initiation) => Cambridge tests 'Starters - Movers - Flyers' & others. * (college-high school) => remediation / upgrading in grammar + other language activities such as Oral / Writing Comprehension or Continuous Speaking / Interaction) - Superior (CPGE, IEP prep, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First Certificate, Advanced Certificate ...) (Preparation for tests such as "Tremplin-Passerelle-Passerelle2- Ecricome" ...) (English for Interns in medicine ...) (Linguistics / phonology / didactics for the English CAPES ... or other competition like the CRPE) - I accompany and have accompanied many adults who needed to be / become truly successful in speaking / writing in English as part of their professional activities (fluency, accent reduction, grammar. ...) or as part of resuming studies. Note that I am not this young student who had a good mark in the Baccalaureate or this other who is supposedly bilingual. I am a linguist by training and author of a textbook in this capacity. I have been teaching as a teacher in the National Education since 1995. Teaching cannot be improvised. It is not an activity that we do "like that". I offer you the fruit of my expertise and my experience as well as the perspective of an educational professional who knows the system perfectly from the "inside". By the way, did you know that to have 10/20 in the Baccalaureate, it is enough to have level A2 (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd year) so I let you imagine the despair of students who are starting higher studies and who learn that they will have to obtain at least 750 in the TOEIC! (the equivalent of level B2!) to see their diploma approved. 2 tips for students: "your TOEIC / IELTS score, it is from L1 that you must prepare it" "if you want to be able to write - English read, understood and spoken in your CV - well it is also from L1 that you must train yourself to speak English, to read in English and of course to write. * Daily monitoring possible via the internet: to learn modern foreign languages, it is always more profitable to work a little each day. It is possible to consider placing slots of 15 or 20 minutes of intensive work on one type of activity several times a week. (See the "memorization" video in the 'Surfonsdoc Orléans-Tours' channel on youtube) -> Look for "debbinghaus curve" on google. * Each course is prepared according to your personal needs. Feedback is always given at the end of the session. * One of the fields in which I specialize is "phonology": intonation, word stress, connections ... In short, everything that relates to oral grammar. If you are tired of being immediately spotted as the man in the video "the i rabbit (you will find it in a few clicks on youtube)) See you soon! Please do not hesitate to contact me for further details.
