    Teacher of English for adults and children of any age and level

    I teach adults and children of any age and any level,

    The core of my approach is:

    - Practice, practice, practice!
    Language proficiency is not knowledge but a SKILL. Every single theoretical topic should be practiced. For that reason, all my courses are full of practical tasks.

    - Having fun while learning.
    Only by having fun can your studying be effective. That’s why the practical tasks of my courses are interactive games. Another crucial point is 100 % clarity of the course theory — learning objectives for every course is made clear from the start.

    - Focus:
    There is too much information nowadays. It’s more and more difficult to navigate through it. So it’s important to have high-quality curated information for your studies: precisely what you need to address your specific needs: a real language for real life.

    - Authentic language:
    My courses are free from artificial phrases that can still be found in textbooks. I provide only genuine language spoken by people in real life.

    - A teacher’s mission is to inspire and to give direction, not just transfer knowledge into a student’s head.
    The best result is when students can learn by themselves, and when they are motivated to use every opportunity to master a foreign language. I will readily share strategies and resources for independently studying foreign languages.

    - Result vs process.
    A foreign language is not about good grades. Its real purpose is to improve your life. That’s why each lesson is another step toward your better life. No unnecessary information but precisely what you need to achieve your goals.

    Learn French & English efficiently /Preparation to TOEIC
    French is a beautiful language but the first thing you will learn is "each rule has an exception". I am a native french speaker and I met a lot of cross-culturl people with years of french studies background not able to speak french properly. I propose you to teach you french with a context according to your needs, background and personality! Let me help you unlock your french level quickly! English is now mandatory, it is not a cool option to have on you CV. You are expected to be able to speak it fluently. It has been now 2 year that I am studying and working abroad in english (handling the english for the job environment, study and personal one). I also get my TOEIC with 975/990. If you want to make progress in english for a test or for another are of yourlife/job I can help you!

I understand that everyone learns differently, and it is very important to me to get to know my students as individuals. Normally I would follow the syllabus curriculum, but I am also very happy to tailor lessons on a more individual basis. I make sure that lessons are varied, including quizzes and different activities and also record pupils' progress on a weekly and quarterly basis.

    Learn English for all levels of experience from 'Hello' to 'Goodbye' and everything in-between
    Hello, my name is Jack, a native English speaker originally from Manchester, England. I have experience teaching English as a second language both online to students in China.And in schools in Italy. I have a diploma in International Business Management from Northumbria University, and studied abroad in Sweden and Portugal and therefore know how important and daunting learning a language can be. I specialise in teaching English as a second language. My aim is to be the lessons fun and engaging. Depending on what you want to learn we can focus on grammar, sentence structure, building vocabulary of a particular topic or start at the basics learning phonics. If you would like support and tutoring on homework or topics you are studying in school I can support students with this and help them achieve in school. I can also teach Business English and help you prepare for a presentation or interview or help with your studies. My class would be perfect for either adults or children wanting to improve their oral and written English skills. Each class will be personalised to your needs and abilities with the first class used to evaluate your level and how we can best use further classes to improve your abilities and see results.

    English for professionals (refresher, fluency, conversation ...)
    ***** Availability update made on 09/01/2020. Valid until further notice ***** I offer you my services in order to make you truly effective orally / in writing in English. If you have to use English in the course of your professional activity and you don't get comfortable with it ... If you are tired of being spotted immediately as French ... If you don't know still not when to use the present perfect / preterite .... I'm here to help you and make you progress. * Linguist by training and author of school textbook in this capacity. Note that I am not this young student who had a good mark in the Baccalaureate or this other who is supposedly bilingual. I have been teaching as a teacher in the National Education since 1995 and I can tell you that teaching cannot be improvised. It is not an activity that we do "like that". I offer you my expertise and my experience. By the way, to have 10/20 in the Baccalaureate, it is enough to have the A2 level (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd year) so I let you imagine the desperation of future engineers who must obtain at least 750 in the TOEIC! (the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course is prepared according to your needs. Feedback is always given. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, connections ... Oral grammar. * Adaptation to all levels: => Post-bac: preparation for TOEIC, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First-Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Orals and writings from grandes écoles such as ENA => Orals and writings from business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...) Please do not hesitate to contact me for further details.
