I try to approach language learning from every angle, including reading, writing, listening, and of course, there is a large emphasis on speaking. I use a variety of method books as well as a lot of lessons that I have created myself. I try to focus on English used in current culture, and frequently use excerpts from newspaper articles, films and television series to make the lessons more engaging and relevant.
I have a TEFL certificate and Bachelor of Arts in European Languages, so as you can see, I love language learning. I also have a Bachelor and Master of Music. I've been teaching English for more than 10 years and have been teaching piano for more than 20 years so my whole career has been centred around education. I worked for many years in Europe, teaching English in establishments such as the Ministries of Culture and Defense of France, Microsoft, Fendi, Dolce & Gabbana, Armani, the International Olympic Committee in Paris, Metropolitan Models, Success Models and Shiseido, to name a few.

I met Lorenzo in 2013, we were both employees in the same Centre de Formation in Paris. I’ve had the chance to work with him on countless student projects, and sought his advice on many others. I’ve always admired his impressive ability to establish a good rapport with his students, adapt to each case & communicate information effectively, as well as his preemptive approach to the needs of every student. The material he uses (and puts together himself) is rich, specialised and diverse. As a Training Consultant, his work has raised the bar in our department, and, on many levels, has changed the way do things here. All in all, the time that I’ve spent working alongside Lorenzo has helped me grow as a teacher and we are all going to miss him terribly, especially his students, but I’m sure he’ll become an indispensable addition to any other team he chooses to be part of in the future.
