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.
We had a lot of fun in our lesson today!
Lots of conversation practice, thanks.
Great lesson today, thanks!
Sylvie is wonderful. She is really helping me. She is incredibly patient. She allows me to stumble and pause, but she's also quick to correct my (many) mistakes. She always makes sure I get it right, and understand. It's totally working! Thank You!
