italki teacher since Oct 30, 2020
My name is Nelson, I'm a 27 years old French tutor on Italki. I’m originally from France but I live now in the Philippines since 3 years.
Aside from tutoring, I’m an entrepreneur and blogger with a Master's degree in Business. I'm passionate about everything related to travel, culture, business and adventures!
I love to help beginners and intermediates level learning French in a comfortable and positive environment.
Me as a Teacher
I am very patient, attentive, and I will do my best to help you reach your goals in learning French.
I consider that every student is different, so my lessons will be based, on your needs. We will create together a program that you like.
My experience as a teacher:
- 3 years of Tutoring during my university years
- 4 months of volunteering in the Philippines with Children from 3yo to 14yo
- 1 year as a business Tutor (Marketing) and a French Tutor.
My lessons & teaching style
I enjoy teaching interactively, with a focus on discussion and interactions.
I also like to include a small part of grammar, orthographic, and vocabulary learning. Based on your preferences, we can also include tools like video, image, and article.
For every student, I create a shared word document that will be used as a "roadmap" to keep track of the lessons and allow valuable continuity. I can also give you weekly homework if you want to go further.
This was only my 2nd lesson with Nelson and I already know I made a right choice with doing lessons with him! He was super patient when I struggled and attentive to what I said. He's great with getting the conversation going. I'm someone who prefers to be corrected asap by my tutors, so that I can learn & say the correct phrase right after. I liked how the 2nd half was for me to practice passé composé vs imparfait which I've been struggling with. Merci beaucoup Nelson et Joyeux Noël !
