About Nicolas

I graduated with a Doctorate, summa cum lauda, from Paris Sorbonne University, and have since carried out research in History and worked as a language consultant in different European countries. The latter involved teaching Language, Culture & Communication in schools and cultural institutions. For the last 10 years, I have taught to a wide range of pupils, primarily university students and government officials. I also have extensive experience teaching children.

In addition to French and English, I also speak Danish, German, and Norwegian. As a linguist, my understanding of the mechanics of language is an asset in removing possible mental hindrances in the student’s learning process. My linguistic approach to teaching focuses on developing the student’s oral proficiencies, while ensuring their pragmatic understanding of grammar. I use a simplified, yet solid theoretical methodology which de-emphasizes unnecessary, abstract learning and applies the use of grammar gradually as needed.

I develop my classes around the student’s specific needs and goals whether they are planning to enjoy a quick linguistic trip or wish to speak as natives do.
We can do this all at your own pace, one step at a time!
