NATIVE NEW YORKER AND COMMUNICATION EXPERT TUTORS YOU IN ENGLISH (PARIS) - Improve your English, Perfect your Presentations

Methodology

Listening and Speaking, Reading & Writing
English for Meaning & Impact - English for Communication

Why work with me? Because I have a true passion for the English language, not only as it should be, but also as it is. Because I have the knowledge and experience you're looking for. And because, beyond needs and aspirations, I can make this passion come to life for you you, not so much as a teacher or trainer, but as an imparter year: one who shares, communicates and instills; one who will show you how to use English as a communication tool.

Why study with me? Because amongst other things I can help you understand something you never learnt in school: how to understand the history and evolution of the English language to better apprehend its contemporary use; how to understand usage instead of just studying grammar.

Why follow my lead? Because together we can explore the logic, images, rhythms and sounds of the English language.

Why choose my approach? Because it is simple, coherent, non-tool-dependent and because I will tailor it to your wants and needs, whatever they may be.

My approach, the i-Facing experience, will help you improve your English and make true progress by forgetting your inhibitions, building on your existing skills for best effect, developing your confidence, extending your word-power, and disposing of your fears and anxieties.

Background

Listening and Speaking, Reading & Writing
English for Meaning & Impact - English for Communication

My approach was designed for motivated and willing learners who have the need and desire to go beyond what they think English should be in order to grasp what it is really all about: a communication tool.

I have worked extensively in the fields of consumer and corporate communications in France, the UK and the US for over 20 years, namely as a copywriter, and have been training private individuals and coaching corporate staff for over 10 years, reaching a total of close to 500 learners, whether face-to-face or in groups.

I have helped authors proofread and improve their essays, articles and non-fiction books; rewritten websites for increased impact; conducted presentation workshops.

So, an important year marketing / communication presentation to prepare and deliver? A paper to fine-tune? An international conference to attend? Regardless of the purpose or subject matter, let us discover together the nuances and subtleties of the English language. Whether you want to peruse financial papers, attend seminars, play an active part in a conference call or simply make small talk during social gatherings or even enjoy travel overseas, I will guide you through the complexities of the English language so that you will feel perfectly comfortable in any given situation.

Perfect! Marc est tout simplement un professeur parfait: il est très attentif et s'adapte particulièrement bien à l'élève et à ses besoins.
Il est en outre toujours souriant et courtois, ce qui est extrêmement agréable.
Je le recommande donc notamment à tous ceux qui ont peu confiance en eux car Marc saura les mettre à l'aise et ainsi les faire progresser.

Mathieu

Perfect! Nous avons procédé par le dialogue et la discussion. Progressivement la capacité d'expression progresse et les fautes se corrigent. Marc est un excellent professeur ainsi qu'un homme cultivé et sympathique.

M
Marielle

Perfect! Très bon professeur. Une grande habitude du vocabulaire professionnel (ce qui était ma demande) et une façon bien à lui de décomplexer l'élève en lui faisant prendre conscience de ce qu'il sait déjà... J'avais une demande ponctuelle mais je continue de travailler avec lui car j'aime sa méthode hyper pragmatique. Je recommande Marc les yeux fermés.

Interview with Marc

QUESTION 01 | 09
Êtes-vous natif d'un pays anglo-saxon, y avez-vous vécu, avez-vous eu un professeur qui vous a donné envie de vous plonger dans la culture en question ?
Marc — Je suis d'origine New-Yorkaise, donc plongé dans la culture à la naissance.
QUESTION 02 | 09
Si vous deviez présenter la culture anglo-saxonne en quelques mots, que diriez-vous ? Et entre nous, est-que que vous aimez vraiment la cuisine anglaise ?
Marc — Il n'y a pas vraiment de culture anglo-saxonne, mais plusieurs. Au niveau de la langue, aussi diverse soit-elle, elle est subtile, variée, nuancée, et FUN lorsqu'elle est maîtrisée comme il se doit.
QUESTION 03 | 09
En quoi savoir parler anglais est important dans les domaines scolaire, professionnel et personnel, en plus de savoir où se trouve Bryan, de frimer sur son CV et de regarder Game of Thrones dès sa sortie aux US ?
Marc — Depuis le XVIème sicécle l'anglais est la langue du commerce - et par extension de la communication - international. ET si Brian - RIP - nous a quitté depuis longtemps, et s'il y aura une vie après, la question n'est plus de savoir en quoi l'anglais est important, mais de savoir quand et comment maîtriser la langue au mieux.
QUESTION 04 | 09
Citez le personnage vivant, historique ou fictif qui est, selon vous, le représentant emblématique de la culture anglo-saxonne ! Alors, plutôt Shakespeare ou James Bond ?
Marc — Ni le Barde, ni celui qui a - on ne sait comment - sa "license to kill", ni aucun autre car il n'y a pas de culture anglo-saxonne unique... mais, quitte à choisir, plutôt Bowie que Bing Crosby.
QUESTION 05 | 09
Pour les anglo-saxons: Y-a-t-il, chez les Français, un mot, une expression, une tradition ou un comportement typique qui vous amuse particulièrement ?
Marc — Toutes les expressions - ou même de simples mots - utilisées hors contexte, donc souvent à contresens, de préférence avec un faux accent.
La mauvais foi et le côté râleur.
QUESTION 06 | 09
Pour les non anglo-saxons: Y-a-il, chez les Anglais, un mot, une expression, une tradition ou un comportement typique qui vous amuse particulièrement ?
Marc — Le je-m'-en-foutisme vestimentaire (surtout UK - londonien), dont les Frenchies devraient s'inspirer.
QUESTION 07 | 09
Quelle est la difficulté principale de la langue anglaise et ce qui peut favoriser son apprentissage ?
Marc — Savoir quand et comment jouer avec la grammaire; comprendre le côté imagé et phonétique; jouer avec les nuances et les subtilités.
Pour les Francophones, apprendre à utiliser le latin et le français pour apprendre l'anglais est un plus indéniable.
QUESTION 08 | 09
Quelle est, dans le cadre des cours, l'anecdote la plus "fun" ou "weird" que vous pouvez nous raconter ?
Marc — Aucune en particulier, mais - en entreprise - être confondu avec le psy de service à qui on peut tout raconter 😵
Pour certains particuliers, merci de ne pas confondre Superprof avec un site de rencontre... 😰
QUESTION 09 | 09
To be or not to be un Superprof ? Quelle est selon vous la recette pour le devenir ?
Marc — Be good at what you do and have LOTS OF FUN DOING IT !
