I first approach our lessons according to the specific needs and requests of the parents. I then assess the learning strengths and challenges of the student and devote the adequate amount of time in order to help them strengthen their skills while enjoying the class. I create a relaxed and enjoyable learning environment while spending the necessary time to help the student master à new words and concepts. This usually requires repetition and closer attention to the details.
I am an active teacher and professor since 2010, with both a mission and aptitude to encourage and inspire students to develop their reading, spoken, and written skills in both English and French. I also am a professional singer-songwriter and use my musical sensibilities to help the students with their pronunciation, cadence, and delivery.
Because of COVID-19, for now, I am only teaching by webcam. When the situation improves, I can travel or welcome students to my home.
Professional singer-songwriter since 1997 with current international album releases and music performances in London, England, exceptional verbal, written, interpersonal, listening, and time-management skills working in the English and French language, with an aptitude to inspire confidence in students of all ages, nationalities, and backgrounds. An effective and proactive relationship builder, writer, and communicator who has taught in both France and the US, bringing originality, creativity, and desired results to every class, project, and mission.
