English Literature (Reading, Writing, & Creative/Critical Expression)

This class is tailored to you for improving your English reading and writing skills! We will read texts that we will choose together (based on your level of reading complexity and interests) and we will respond both critically and creatively through writing exercises.

I am an English Language and Literature professional who has been privately tutoring students since 2012. My first full-time job was in proofreading for a major global book publisher. I earned my BA in English from the University of Pennsylvania, the Ivy League institution and #1 English programme in the US. I also studied the fine arts and creative and critical writing, earning high honours. As such, I am skilled at tutoring across the disciplines of the humanities and creative arts, focusing on developing critical and theoretical thinking skills.

I approach each student as an individual learner with specific needs and areas of improvement. I tailor my lessons directly to the student's current coursework, challenges, and personal goals. I put in my best efforts to ensure my students remember my tips and tricks to succeeding. I expect my students to see rapid improvement. I'm passionate about my subjects and will be a friendly voice to encourage you every step of the way.

Mark
Real Teacher Holder of Education, author of textbook (language & phonology) 23 years of experience offers neck
* Training linguist and author of textbook as such. => I am not a student in L1 who had a good grade in the Baccalaureate. I am a practicing, qualified teacher and holder of National Education. Teaching can not be improvised. This is something I feel I do well with 23 years of experience. I remind parents that to have 10/20 to the Baccalaureate, just have the level A2 (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd) so I let you imagine the despair of engineering students who must get at least 750 to the TOEIC! It's the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course gives rise to a detailed report. * In-depth knowledge of the European Framework. (A1 => C2) * Work of language activities. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, links ... The grammar of the oral. * Adaptation to all levels: => College - High school: beginner, false beginner ... => Post-baccalaureate: TOEIC preparation, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Oral and writings of the grandes écoles such as ENA => Oral and written business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...) => Engineering school: preparation for TOIEC.
