Personal Description:

My fascination with languages began at an early age, and developed into a keen interest in my school years, and later, a passionate career, as my journey laid out here will illustrate.

Now, I’m a highly motivated and dedicated teacher, and I use my personal creativity to great effect in engaging all of my students during class activities. I work conscientiously to foster a positive and safe learning environment underpinned by mutual respect and strong boundaries; a priority in my personal teaching style.

Having grown up and studied in France, I gained exciting and life-stretching experiences by visiting the United States, and later, the United Kingdom, where I have now been settled for five years. My travel and life experience enables me to enrich my language lessons with au-thentic cultural content.

Tutoring Experience:

My teaching experience is extensive and multi-faceted. I have taught both inside and outside of classrooms and lecture theatres, in more informal settings, such as day camps, and one-to-one, in private tuition. I bring to this role a deeply holistic worldview and appreciation for culture and diversity, and I’m adept at applying this within a formal teaching environment in a fun, engaging, and highly motivational way. Furthermore, I have a deep understanding of learning styles and the cognitive processes that students draw upon as they journey towards proficiency, and many, to full fluency. I use a variety of approaches to ensure that all students of varying comprehension and skill levels are able to get the greatest benefit from their tuition and their own practice. I am also very keen to use ICT resources in my lessons and do so on a regular basis. I am adept with computers and find that the use of ICT materials in lessons is both interesting and informative for the students.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching style is relaxed and patient, but it is also stretching and tailored to each individual. I structure my teaching very much individual strengths in mind so that students thoroughly enjoy each class and whilst proactively encouraged, they are never overwhelmed, because I ensure that I’m in tune with the needs of each student at all times. I am very student-centred, and I teach flexibly according to the interests of each individual. For example, at the outset I seek to quickly understand the interests of my students, and I weave those into my teaching in order to deliver tuition that holds their interest and fully engages them. I may do this, for example, through the use of music, visual aids, or group and pair-work, social media, or other technology. I keep myself knowledgeable about current trends and fashion so that my teaching makes use of the contemporary in order to remain relevant to the student I am educating.
