Coaching

DO YOU SPEAK WINENGLISH?
DO YOU SPEAK CATERINGENGLISH?
DO YOU SPEAK TOURISMENGLISH?

Scared of jumping in? Looking ridiculous?
Inhibited by your accent? Can’t find your words?

TAILORED

I propose tailored coaching, at your place of work/home, to target your specific needs.
Together we will develop a programme that includes an assessment of your skills, your objectives, your availability and your budget.

 ENJOYABLE

Learn to express yourself in English on a theme that you know and love is nothing like English lessons in school! Not only will you find it immediately useful, but, you will enjoy yourself. I communicate my immense pleasure in teaching to my students.

EXPERIENCED

A qualified teacher and currently working in various higher education institutes in Bordeaux (INSEEC, IUT Bordeaux Montesquieu and ESSCA), I have a good ten years of teaching experience, particularly in the fields of business and marketing.

“CHEZ VOUS”

The entire course will take place on your premises to ensure that you are genuinely in situation. My approach and resources vary according to your needs (video, audio extracts, role plays, telephoning, Skype, traditional exercises) and each session is designed to give you tools that are immediately applicable and that boost your level of confidence.

NEARBY

Not only do I come to you, I live in and know the region. I propose combining my English “viewpoint” and teaching experience with my affinity for the region to offer you an English course that fully meets your needs.
