Hello! I teach English and French, and I live in a small village very close to Paris. I love languages and teaching is my passion. I have also a lot of curiosity for other cultures and I believe in the power of communication between people around the world, thanks to Verbal planet online courses!
-PLP2 English and French (this certification allows me to teach French and English)
I have taught English and French for ten years in a public high school next to Paris, to French and foreign speakers, so I know the difficulties they have to face phonetics and grammar.
I am allowed to teach English from absolute beginners till level B2 ( Baccalaureat level in France, which means the end of secondary studies).
- CAPES Philosophy
Master Philosophy Paris IV Sorbonne
Psychology studies Paris7 Diderot
French littérature studies Paris IV Sorbonne
I have been staying in Great Britain, Ireland and Scotland, so my accent is more British than American.
I am bilingual In French/English.
My teaching approach is founded on a very enjoyable way of learning, which includes conversation, small texts about everyday situations, introduction to French culture.
Especially if you are an absolute beginner, the method I use pays back pretty fast because it is adapted to real life situations, like how to find your way or answer a simple question with a good british accent!!
French speakers students are welcome to my courses because I am aware of their particular difficulties with the english language and I know how to solve them in order
to improve their level. So, they will make progress fast enough to get at ease in every situation.
It was a pleasure to speak with Sylvie!
Sylvie was very patient and adapted the lesson to personal needs. It was great!
Very good lesson - enables me to make good progress
Another excellent session!
