About Tutor

“A native speaker originally from Plymouth UK, I've been teaching English in France now for 20 years. I particularly like the contact which this profession brings with my trainees. I try very hard to introduce as much enthusiasm and energy into my lessons as possible: they should always be motivating and stimulating.
Every student is different so it's important to adapt, creating a friendly atmosphere in which to work. Having learned to speak a language myself and experiencing first-hand the difficulties, has helped me a lot in my teaching method. Lessons are always structured putting the emphasis on conversational skills but also introducing oral exercises which target the grammar and specifically the tenses. While the trainee is speaking any mistakes are noted and corrected. It's important for the student to think about these in order to improve. A lesson report sent after the lesson will help you to remember specific points.
My personal interests include travel, but I'm particularly attracted to the great outdoors, nature and the environment.”
Finally, I would say that in life there is rarely a free lunch and learning a language can be difficult, however 'where there's a will there's a way' and with the necessary motivation and persistence everything is possible...
I hope to meet you soon... Simon”

I am native English from Plymouth in the south-west of England. I have been teaching in France (Brittany) for 20 years. I particularly like the contact that this profession brings with my trainees. I strive to bring as much enthusiasm and energy as possible to my classes: these should always be motivating and stimulating.
Each intern is different so it's important to adapt and create a friendly atmosphere in which to work.
Having learned to speak French myself, I have a real experience of what it is like to learn a language, and the difficulties encountered. This helped me a lot in my teaching method. Courses are always structured with an emphasis on oral language while introducing exercises that target specific points of grammar and especially times. While the intern speaks, possible errors are noted and corrected. It is important for the trainee to think about their mistakes in order to progress and improve their level. A course mark is sent following the course to help remember points raised during the course.
To talk a little about myself, I love travelling but I particularly appreciate outdoor life, nature and the environment, which is very important to me.
In conclusion, I would say that you have nothing for nothing in life, and learning a language can be difficult. However, when you want you can and with motivation and persistence everything is possible...
I hope to meet you very soon, Simon.
