Bonjours à tous!
My name is Guillaume and I live and work in Brighton. Although I am a French citizen, I spent most of my childhood living abroad in Africa and Asia among others. I did my secondary and university education in English, both respectively in an International school in France and at the University of Sussex in Brighton, England.
I now currently work in Brighton but I am looking to make a bit of extra money whilst sharing my passion for linguistic through teaching both English and French.
Part of my high school diploma required me to do a certain amount of charity work, on top of other charity projects, I also offered to teach french to my English speaking classmates, which was a value experience on both ends, as teaching them French allowed me to discover more about the english language itself.
Additionally, I gave paid lessons to a friend of mine to prepare for her English GCSE (well the french equivalent) where I both helped up with preparing for the tasks that would be asked of her during the test and extra lessons covering areas that she would need in real life, outside of high school. I am proud to say that she scored a 17 (out of 20) but I am even prouder to say that she can now converse in adequate English which is mostly what was important to both her and I.
My approach is very simple, I want to tailor my lessons to the student's exceptions. For instance, I would always asked what is aimed to be achieved, conversational French, academic/professional french or full fluency.
I also think it is extremely important to cover colloquial areas of the language as it is typically what is not taught in textbooks or classes but is incidentally features some of the most useful words and expressions for an everyday conversation.
