I am a professional teacher from the United States. I live now in Morocco where I teach English professionally at a school. I have experience teaching children, teenagers, and adults. I teach beginning to advanced students.
I love teaching online as it offers students an efficient way to practice their English skills. I also enjoy learning languages. I speak German well and am conversant in formal and Moroccan Arabic. Moreover, I am working hard right now to improve my Russian and Slovak language skills. A such, I understand what it's like to learn a language and understand how important it is to have a patient and supportive teacher.
Me as a Teacher
Language is a social activity. As such, it is important that you have the means to interact with other human beings using in this case the English language. Therefore, I want students to practice reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Furthermore, I want students to practice informal and colloquial English so as to better comprehend and communicate with native English speakers. I also believe that active participation is a fundamental part of language learning. Therefore, my goal is for students to speak as much as possible during lessons. I will not judge you but I will help you to improve your English language skills through repetition and your active participation.
My lessons & teaching style
During our first lesson, I will evaluate your English level. I will plan your lessons accordingly so that they are not too difficult, but at the same time will challenge you enough that your English will improve. I will prepare each and every lesson for you beforehand. Each lesson will have a particular outcome in mind. Moreover, I will adapt our lessons to your particular goals. Are you preparing for an English language exam? Or are you planning to travel or to undertake business in an English-speaking country? In both cases the lessons I will plan will be different. I cannot promise that you will become fluent in only a few months, but I can promise you that your English will improve.

É sempre um prazer falar com o Brice! :) Estou com uma lista cheia de expressões (porque durante a lição, acho importante fazer anotações): "to make one's way", "to sell oneself short", "to jump to a conclusion", "to come to a conclusion", "to get around" e muitas outras. Acho que o Brice é um professor muito comprometido, muito respeitoso e muito inteligente! Brasileiros e portugueses: agendem suas lições! Ele é realmente muito bom! See you later, Brice! :)

Brice has a unique teaching style which I personally find the most suitable for young learners. He is very helpful and patient, and uses simple language. My son can easily understand and follow the conversation. I like the jokes from time to time during the lesson. They help to relax and enjoy studying. Thank you!

I've had 8 lessons with Brice until now. Now i think i have the authority to give him my stamp of approval. (new phrase learned today from him, for showing off! ;-) ).
He is definitely the best!
1. He is very supportive and prepared. He is very good at encouraging you to speak English, instead of keeping talking himself. He is always able to figure out what i'm trying to say and correct my obvious pronunciation/grammar mistakes. I always learn a lot.
2. He is a gentleman, always gentle and polite. It feels relaxed and comfortable taking to him. I always feel safe to open my month. I enjoy taking his lesson.
3. His internet connection is always very good! During the lesson, we can always communicate with each other clearly. (in my opinion, this point is very important for an online course).
In conclusion, he is very good teacher, at least for me. I highly recommend him. And i will take his lessons regularly in the future.
