    About Me

    I am a native British English speaker and bring my experience and love of teaching English to motivated students and adults of all ages and abilities in Geneva. I have been an English language teacher to learners from all over the world and from all backgrounds, ages and abilities for 7 years both in the UK and abroad.

    As a native speaker I can provide a deeper level of knowledge and application of English than many second language speakers, especially for phrasing and pronunciation work. Whether you are a complete beginner or an intermediate or advanced English speaker who is looking to improve or perfect your English skills for yourself, your studies, your job or your business, I can help you.

    I will work to create classes based on your individual needs, learning style and existing abilities and provide lots of opportunities for learning and practice through speaking, writing, listening and reading. My experience and some of the latest studies and theories for learning a second language have shown, that making the content of lessons fun, relaxing, engaging and meaningful to learner's life and experience, makes for the most effective and memorable lessons. However, any materials or books you want to work on together for study, work or any other reason will also prove a valuable resource.

    It's difficult, but it can be a lot of fun and very rewarding to learn a second language (as I am discovering with French!) so I do look forward to hearing from you and gettin' you going on better English.

    Private lessons in English, French and math
    I offer tutoring classes in English, French and math. Having a very high level of English, I can help the student for his vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation. Since French is my mother tongue and has read a lot in my youth, it is easy for me to help the student understand the grammar and conjugation of French. I can also give math lessons up to the level of the orientation cycle. I have already given French and math lessons to young children who just needed to be told quietly their course by giving them concrete examples. I know how to be patient and make the exercises like games so that learning is enjoyable and easier.

If you want conversation classes, the method can be more fluid with themes chosen together and pronunciation exercises. I teach the following types of courses: - Classical tutoring classes to improve your grades. - courses of preparation for examinations. - Business-oriented language courses (job interview, CV, business dialogue, writing letters and e-mails).

    Italian :-) language & culture LIVING. Polyglot.
    Italy has a lot of charm because it has a varied culture: its language, the Renaissance, the music of Opera, but also Laura Pausini or Bolognese sauce :-) Italian, graduated in Languages and Literatures (in this case I speak fluently French, English, German), I have professional experience in teaching foreign languages. My strong points: - being multilingual, I know all the good tips to get to really master a language (if I could do it you can too!) - I'm serious but I also have humor. During my lessons we never get bored - I am open to various solutions: I can teach you another language also at the same time (verbs in Italian and English at the same time? Compare their uses? No problem!) or even cook with you: Bolognese sauce ? Why not? See you soon !
