Tell me about yourself first, your expectations, and your hobbies if you decide to contact me… To help you finding out if I am the right tutor for you, here is a bit about myself :
I am French native speaker with an excellent command of English and a passion for French Language and culture : performing arts, notably drama and music - jazz, classical, rock, blues.
I live in Liverpool - my UK home and I love it - and I have kept a residence in Lyon, my hometown where I still work sometimes. Before I changed career and became a teacher, I worked for 6 years as a performing art manager with various cultural organization in France, including theatre festivals, professional music ensemble and dance companies.
I enjoy traveling, good food and good wine, going out with friends even if I am not a party animal at all. I love words and language and writing on my sparetime,is essential. I regularly attend language exchanges in Liverpool - that I strongly recommend to any language learner - in French, German, Italian.
My connexions in France are in Lyon, internationally celebrated for its cuisine, the Loire Valley, where famous Britons such as Jude Law and Mick Jagger spend holidays, celtic Britanny, our Scotland home of delicious Crepes, its rival Normandy famous for William the Conqueror and other Bayeux stuff, such as D-DAY, and the Mont St Michel. Not to mention Paris of course, more precisely the popular area of Barbès, between Montmartre and Square Clignancourt (my favorite place in the capitale together with Musée d'Orsay and Marais for shopping… ) where my sister resides.
I have gained a "licence" / BA in English and French in 2001 and a "maîtrise", 4 years degree in French Literature and education delivered by the university of Lyon in 2002 (equivalent to a BA hons degree, with a 1st) and a MA in arts management - at ENSATT a prestigious academy for Performing arts, similar to LIPA. This 3 years course included law, economics, marketing, management applied to cultural organizations.
