Su di me

I am from Paris, France, and have worked in France, the United States, Germany, and Belgium. I am a certified English teacher in France (Capes-junior highschool, Agrégation-highschool). I have taught 8 years at the university level in the Department of Sport Science at Université Paris 5 Descartes, where I was the Head of the English Department. From 2015 to 2018, I have taught 7 semesters as a French Lecturer at the Romance Languages Department at University of Pennsylvania, in Philadelphia. I also taught Business English for 2 months in a summer program. In 2018-2019, I piloted Undergraduate research for the History Department at Penn. I have a PhD in American History and Civilization from Université Paris 7 Diderot in France.
I worked for seven years as a translator from English/German into French before I became a teacher, in domains ranging from software to subtitling, and marketing.
My teaching style combines the French and American approaches, with a level of magisterial/vertical and egalitarian/horizontal relation to students (75% of the latter). I like to engage students through interesting content and material. I always encourage them, and support them to foster their motivation. I give them the means to be consciously part of their learning process.
Language learning means working on several skills. Some students are better listeners, while others enjoy speaking, or writing,... Some are keen on mastering theory, others are more creative. It is necessary to feed these very diverse skills, ideally using students' abilities in a most optimal way. This of course requires identifying students' objective(s) (for private lessons), and work towards it.
Language learning can be daunting. So it is essential to create a positive and comfortable atmosphere, so students are looking forward to the course.
