I graduated from the American University of Paris in 2014. There I studies French and linguistics. After, I got my "Teaching English as a Foreign Language" certificate. I have been teaching English in Rueil-Malmaison and towns near by since then. I especially love working with children. I teach all levels from beginner to bilingual. I help with school homework, I create my own lessons, I play English learning games and teach about American culture. I am there to create whatever is needed to improve English while having fun!
As I noted above, I have a background in linguistics as well. Having this background helps me detect students difficulties to help them improve. I can also teach linguistics (in English) to students with a good level and who are interested. Normally, I try not to speak French while teaching. However, if French is needed to explain grammar I can do so. I speak enough French to understand your children needs and if there is anything wrong I will understand them and be able to communicate with them in case of emergency. Other than that, I try to not let them know that I speak French, so I request that I speak English with the parents as well.
I have been teaching English for 2 years now. This past school year I had around 24 students. I teach one on one lessons as well as small group lessons. I have had students from ages 3 to 50. Each student is different. I have beginners, I have bilinguals, I have students looking for me to help with school work, I have students who want a private lesson created by me, and I have special requests, such as help with spelling, work, or linguistics. I teach during the school year and my schedule fills up very quickly, by the end of August I am usually full and cannot take any more students. Most of my students have requested to come back to me, so spaces are limited.
I have a bachelors degree from the American University of Paris where I graduated with high honors. I also have a "Teaching English as a Foreign Language" certificate.
Growing up, I had dyslexia, and was helped greatly. Now, I know exactly how to help those with the same or similar difficulties.
I have participated in 3 different internships, all working in schools. My first was an elementary school in New Hampshire. There I helped as a school counselor. My second was another elementary school in Florida. There I was a substitute teacher in a kindergarten classroom and specifically helped with students with disabilities. My last internship was in Paris. I created my own lesson plans and helped to teach students in CE1 through Terminal.
I also have had a variety of past jobs that help me be the teacher that I am today. Most important of these past jobs was being a head lifeguard for 3 years in Maine. There I was CRP and first aid trained and certified. I also taught swim lessons to children while being a lifeguard and I worked as a "kiddie camp" summer day care counselor. I also worked at a creche for a year in Paris speaking, singing, and playing all in English.
All my life I have wanted to be a teacher and have worked hard to be where I am today, teaching and working with a variety of students.
