Presentation

Native speaker of British English, Highly experienced coach and counsellor of adults.

I’m highly experienced in helping adults achieve their goals, as a counsellor, adviser, manager and teacher. I enjoy it and so I’ve chosen to specialise in this area of language teaching. My aim is to make learning interesting and fun, by devising lessons that you know are helping you get where you want to be, and which match your personal interests. Learning in a way that motivates you is key. I have helped someone to learn French by teaching in the way he wanted - reading with him a favourite English novel (Pride and Prejudice) translated into French, and helping him work out the meaning and construction of the French. Other examples of a learner-suggested lessons: Role-play of a challenging professional situation she was going to encounter in the next couple of days, Rehearsing ...

I’m highly experienced in helping adults achieve their goals, as a counsellor, adviser, manager and teacher. I enjoy it and so I’ve chosen to specialise in this area of language teaching. My aim is to make learning interesting and fun, by devising lessons that you know are helping you get where you want to be, and which match your personal interests. Learning in a way that motivates you is key. I have helped someone to learn French by teaching in the way he wanted - reading with him a favourite English novel (Pride and Prejudice) translated into French, and helping him work out the meaning and construction of the French. Other examples of a learner-suggested lessons: Role-play of a challenging professional situation she was going to encounter in the next couple of days, Rehearsing and improving a series of lectures to Masters students, so that her English was fluent and idiomatic. I love to see people learn and grow, and get a great sense of fulfilment and satisfaction from helping people achieve things that are important to them. Skills Helping people learn – many years of experience in helping different people learn and change in the way they wanted. This included overcoming lack of confidence, overcoming inner conflict that blocks change, and overcoming anxiety. I have a UK accredited qualification in teaching English as a foreign language (TQUK level 5 certificate), and a certificate in correcting errors in French from France Université Numérique. I have a postgraduate diploma in counselling from the University of Bristol, accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. Comments from people who have learned with me include ‘I liked being able to structure the lessons to meet my needs.’ ‘…informative and structured well with very relevant homework to a new life in France…’ and ‘Paul is the most kind and patient teacher’. Knowledge of languages – I first studied linguistics in my final year at the University of Cambridge, where my classics degree gave me a good knowledge of how languages work and how Latin evolved into modern French. I studied the psychology of language for my MSc in psychology in 2014, which gave me a scientific understanding of how people acquire their first language(s) and learn others. I speak French fluently and know enough Spanish and Italian to help speakers of those languages to learn English.

Muy buen profesor. Hace las clases muy interesantes y personalizadas en base a los objetivos del alumno. Amplios conocimientos lingüísticos que ayudan al alumno a profundizar en las normas y las excepciones del inglés. Si buscas mejorar la pronunciación, muy muy recomendable (que en mi caso era lo que quería enfocarme en nuestras primeras clases).
