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!

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 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.
