Hello future students,
My name is Emilie, I am French but I have been living in Australia for the past 3 years. After more than two years experience of teaching English as a Second Language in Sydney I am looking forward to have new students in Japan. I worked for two different schools in Sydney and can furnish recommendation letters if needed. I can teach you French or English, you just have to choose!
I’m a smiling, bubbly, enthusiastic and hardworking individual. I will always try to put you at ease and to make you laugh during our lessons.
During my classes I taught to different levels, from pre-intermediate to advanced , I had the chance to manage my own students and to be proud of their progress and achievements. This aspect shows my abilities to adapt my teaching to the students. I also learned to manage my classes, gained respect and trust from my students.
Being bilingual in French (mother tongue) and Italian, I am fully aware of the difficulties encountered to learn a new language. In Australia, I had many Japanese students, that is why, I understand your numerous difficulties with English language such as the sentence structure, the pronunciation, the different tenses and the plural.
During my lessons I focus on you, my aim is to help you to be at ease with English or French. I use different question cards to help you to build a sentence and discuss about a topic. I also use repetitions! When you make a mistake, we correct it together and you repeat the sentence without the mistake. Don't worry, it is allowed to make mistakes, it is even better! How do you learn if you don't make mistakes?
I can help you to build your vocabulary on one specific topic or we can have a daily life conversation. Just tell me what you'd like to improve and I will adapt my program to your needs.
I look forward to working with you, my future students. Let's do a great job together!
