I am currently looking for people who want to improve their English. I have been teaching this language for 10 years now to all kind of people (from 5 to 50 years old, many references on Paris and its suburbs). I mainly base my courses on conversations, oral exercises and readings. I also like to work on movies and series without subtitles when the "student's" level is good enough.
I also use reading comprehension exercises on excerpts from books or newspapers. I believe that learning English (or any other language) must be playful and fun !
I have had around 40 students in Paris over the last two scholar years and all of them improved their average by 2 to 3 points at school.
I am now living in Edinburgh but teaching from behind a screen or a phone does not change anything for me (method, help with homework, exercises given) as long as my students remain as serious as when I am physically present.
Feel free to contact me !
As for my background, I have been practicing English for over 20 years now having started very young. I cumulatively spent nearly 2 years in English-speaking countries (Toronto, San Francisco, New York, London, Malta, Ireland), being totally immersed each time. I lived in host families, took English courses from native teachers and even managed to get job opportunities as in London in 2009 or now in Edinburgh.
I also studied English for a year at university (LLCE in Paris 4 - La Sorbonne) and did a Law-English-German year at university as well (Paris 11). After this, I got a journalism degree in 2014 (4 years).

Excellent! François Xavier a été une belle rencontre pour notre fils, il lui réapprend à aimer l’anglais, et c’est un point essentiel. Le travail avance mais de façon assez ludique et les rdv hebdomadaires sont du coup très attendus, il a su le rendre acteur de son apprentissage ce qui me semble tres important lorsque l’on parle de langue vivante.
My lessons with Hugo are going great. After a couple months, he is already much more confident and always have a very positive attitude.
He now needs to be more thorough on the grammar but I am sure he will get there with practice and we are going to focus on that through oral exercices over the summer.
Perfect! Thank you for your support .
Omar needed help getting a bit more confident with his oral skills and is doing a great job so far. It's a pleasure to have conversations with him and help him improve every week!
Excellent! I contacted François-Xavier to help me prepare for the TOEIC exam, especially the grammar part where I had great difficulties to understand and master the basic rules. I am very happy to have met him, he is very friendly and competent.
I highly recommend him.
Thank you again for your help.
Hassan a besoin d'aide pour réussir à atteindre un certain score au TOEIC. Nous nous concentrons actuellement surtout sur la partie grammaire, son point faible. Les progrès sont déjà visibles après quelques cours et je suis certain qu'il atteindra son objectif. Keep up the good work !
C'est un professeur agréable , très bien dans sa peux qui sait surtout mettre en confiance à mon fils (2nd). Je le recommande vivement.
Je suis depuis 2 mois des cours d'anglais avec François-Xavier, tout se passe vraiment très bien, professeur très agréable, souriant, intéressant et qui aime transmettre son savoir. C'est une personne qui a tout de suite su me mettre en confiance. Je le recommande sans hésitation.
François-Xavier a donné des cours d'anglais à ma fille il y a quelques années et nous ne l'avons pas oublié !
"FX" est un jeune homme dynamique, enjoué, ponctuel. Il est à l'écoute des demandes des parents, s'adapte parfaitement aux besoins de l'élève et rend les cours sympathiques.
Notre fille a bien progressé grâce à lui. Nous sommes ravis de pouvoir le recommander.
