----- My method
My method is based on a series of questions and answers, as a dialogue. I guide students into finding the answers themselves, helping out when they struggle. I try to avoid classic lecturing. I also have designed a series of learning techniques : learning by doing, series of “flashcards” to memorize. I adapt my classes to the progression of my students. Over the last 10 years, I have taught more than 200 students privately, and accrued 2000 hours of teaching experience. Private classes allow for far more feedback than packed-up classroom. I have numerous personalized training programs, lectures, notes, which allow to nurture the knowledge of the student while preparing him efficiently.
Sessions via phone, skype or in person, follow-up via emails, 24-hours response.
