Bonjour! Welcome to my profile & thank you really much for your interest ! Since being born in France 24 years ago, I've been travelling around the world and visited over 50 countries. This is how my interest in languages started, I realized how valuable it was to learn. It's an incredible way to connect with people from completly different & very interesting cultures.
Since then I've been working to improve my languages skills and my teaching abilities. I passed a diploma to teach English, the TEFL, and got a job as a French teacher in a private institute.
My biggest dream is to be able to visit every country of the world!
And it's by exploring the world that I've found my wife, Hiu Ying, from Hong Kong. We are now 3 since we just welcomed our first son in our multi-cultural family. He's only 3 months now, and already visited 2 countries! We just moved to Mexico. We did this choice because we wanted to keep exploring, and it's a very good opportunity to improve our Spanish and discover a country full of history and culture. And don't worry our wifi is very good!
Anyway, I am now looking forward to sharing my knowledge with students having a burning desire to explore the world, to meet foreigners and to step out of their comfort zone.
By booking lessons with me, you are guaranteed that we will never run out of conversation!
I've often found myself in a situation where nobody could understand me when I was travelling, I know exactly how you can feel, it will be a pleasure to share some tips that could ease your life when speaking a foreign language!
How do I teach ?
I focus on you personally and find the best way to raise your interest. Some students may prefer authentic materials such as songs or videos, while other students prefer focusing on grammar & vocabulary. In the end the most important is for you to enjoy the lesson. I'm a huge believer that having fun is the best way to learn, because you don't actually feel like you are learning. I'm a positive and friendly person who know how to ease the atmosphere and build trust between us. I can totally understand that you might be very stressed about the idea of speaking a foreign language with a total stranger. I know the feeling, I've been in this situation. I want you to know that I will never judge you or make fun of you. I recommend first to get to know each other so that I can understand your expectations, and I will adapt to it pretty quickly ;) !
What can I teach ?
I am a native French speaker born & raised in the south of France and I'm currently working in a private French institute in Mexico, teaching beginners adults from 20 to 60 year-old.
I am a certified English teacher with a 120-hour TEFL Certificate and experiences teaching online and one-on-one private tutoring lessons.
During my teaching career, I've been doing one-on-one private tutoring lessons for both these languages from beginner level to advanced and for a wide range of age, the youngest being 4 year-old and the oldest about 60. From free conversation to board game I used a lot of different lesson types to attract my students.
Where to start ?
You can book one of the short lesson so that we can meet each other and I can understand your expectations.
Feel free to contact me if you want to learn efficiently. I can guarantee you will have a good time, because the most important in life is definitely happiness, and learning is closely related to it!
