About me

I am American and I live in the United States. My wife is French and teaches elementary school. We have a 6-year old boy. I hold a VFR private pilot's license. My interests are classical music, jazz, world travel, and collecting rare wines. I hope you do book me for a free trial lesson but please arrive for the lesson! About 50% of new students DO NOT arrive for the free lesson. It is not polite to the teacher, plus it wastes my time. Therefore, please be a serious student, OK?

Qualifications & Experience

I have a degree in English literature and 10 years' experience teaching English as a foreign language. I taught English in Paris.

My background is in marketing, advertising, and the media.

I am amply qualified to tutor students who will be working cross-culturally in a professional setting.

Teaching Approach

I love teaching English. Helping students discover my language is quite satisfying. During the first lesson with a student I carefully listen to their objectives and plan future lessons based on specific needs. I am the tutor, but the student is the boss!

My lessons are challenging yet a lot of fun. I design customized role-playing exercises for each student. My students watch British and American videos on their own to discuss later with me online. I look for specific weaknesses students have yet are perhaps not aware of.

I particularly enjoy helping students who ask me to help them improve their presentation skills.

The English language is a powerful tool. If you are ready to work I would like to show you the many wonderful ways to use that tool.

I hope you will book a free trial lesson with me. Please understand that MANY new students book the free trial lesson but never arrive online for the lesson. At least 40% of "free trial" students never show up! Please only book me for the free trial lesson if you are a serious student. I promise to give you a fantastic free trial lesson. Thank you!

About me

Salut la France,

Je m'appelle Christopher. Je suis americain. J'ai vecu et travaille en France pendant de nombreuses annees. Durant ces annees, j'ai enseigne l' anglais d'affaires a des cadres et des professionnels, notamment dans la region parisienne. Je les aides a ameliorer leur prononciation de la langue anglaise ainsi que leur anglais ecrit. Dans mes cours, je ne me limite pas a donner des cours de grammaire et de vocabulaire, j'ai mets surtout l'accent sur la difference qui existe entre les deux cultures, anglaise et francaise, au niveau du monde du travail.
