Detailed Profile in English

About me

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!

- Possibility of Intensive summer courses , in order to prepare national exams in French...DELF A1, A2, B1, B2 et DALF C1, C2.

Qualifications & Experience

-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.

Teaching Approach

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 French 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.

Very good first lesson. Sylvie can quickly detect areas to work on, she is engaging, and corrects when necessary kindly, clearly, and assertively.

Finally, a teacher who can correctly identify the needs of the student, and adapt the lesson accordingly. Most teachers cannot adjust their way of teaching to students who already have a good level. Luckily, Sylvie is the exception!
