My name is Zoe, I am English and I live in the south-west of France.
I have 3 English teaching certificates: TEFL diploma (Teaching English as a foreign Language), TESOL Teacher of English Grammar and TESOL Teacher of Business English. I also have several years of experience in teaching English, including:
• Teaching adults and children on a one to one basis and in group classes, from beginner level to advanced.
• Offering assistance with homework etc.
• Job interview preparation (e.g. mock interviews)
• Exam preparation – TOEIC, IELTS, BULATS
• Grammar revision, listening and reading practice and vocabulary building.
• Business English.
I have been in France since June 2000. When I arrived I couldn’t speak much French; I learnt by living with and talking to French people. I have 3 young children who are being brought up bilingually - I love teaching them.
I don’t profess to being an expert in the English language; I think we never stop learning! I was brought up to speak properly (thank you mum!), so I offer English conversation with a REAL native British English speaker.
My main aims are to help with vocabulary building and pronunciation. I also offer listening and reading practice which are a vital part of learning a new language!
Come and meet me, let’s chat about your language learning requirements; I’ll make suggestions, give you my advice and try to guide you through your language learning experience as painlessly as possible!
Bring a coffee and a good sense of humour to class; let's have fun while you learn!
Looking forward to meeting you soon…..
p.s. Check out my video - In 2010 I taught 40 French children a very complicated song for their end of year show. None of these children could speak English when I started teaching them! - I am so proud of them!
**Please note that I will not speak to any learner who is driving when I call them. I consider that it is not possible to take a lesson and concentrate on road safety at the same time. In the event that a learner is driving when I call them, I immediately end the lesson and it is considered as taken, therfore, must be paid in the usual way.**
Q. Hi,Zoe. So, you have many years teaching experience, what made you want to start teaching language? A. I studied for my TEFL diploma during my first pregnancy. My idea was just to help local French children with their school work. After my first child was born, I discovered the pleasure of teaching her how to talk. (My children are all bilingual (English – French)) I stayed at home to look aft...
