Course description:

Toi, tu veux t'améliorer à quoi?

Anglais Fonctionnel, c'est pour tous ceux qui n'ont pas besoin de comprendre tout la théorie dans l'apprentissage linguistique...
mais qui veulent *fonctionner* bien dans le lot quotidien, alors avec d'anglais actuel qui a assez à voir avec leur vie.

What do YOU want to get better at?

Functional English with Pete is for those who don't need to understand all the theory behind language learning...
but DO want to *function* in the real world with current English that is relevant to their life.

Teaching approach:

Il y auront des conversations particuliers et interactifs, dont Pete "zoomera" sur précisément ce que t'as besoin d'améliorer, afin de t'aider à bien arriver où TU veux, par des dialogues, des lectures en haut voix, et des autres activités.

Il aurat moins l'air d'un leçon que de traîner en bavardant -- mais tu apprendreras, ça c'est sûr.

Mon but, c'est t'aider à parler assez couramment et assez FONCTIONNEL que tu n'as pas encore besoin de moi.

À bientôt, on se verra à Lyon ou en lign

Course program:

These will be interactive, one-on-one English conversations where Pete will "laser in" on what you need to improve on, to help you get where YOU want to go, through dialogues, "read-alouds", and other activities.

It will feel less like a lesson, and more like "hanging out"-- but you will learn (promise!)

Pete's *GOAL* is to help you become fluent and FUNCTIONAL enough that you don't need him anymore.

Hope to see you soon, in Lyon or online.

Hello, I'm an American English teacher living in Lyon.

I'd say what I enjoy most in life is this: (1) learning new things, (2) helping others learn new things, and (3) spending time outdoors. Luckily, I've had the opportunity to do these things a lot. I worked for several years as a reading tutor in Boston, and spent a few more years working in schools, including a language school in Greece (which is where I completed my TEFL certificate to teach English in 2012). I've also worked as an educator in several informal settings, like nature centers, a science museum, and a historical tour company.

If we get the chance to work together, I'll make sure that the time we spend learning is relaxed, enjoyable, and focused on exactly what you want to improve in.

I will "root for you" (as we say in the States) and be your #1 fan!

It doesn't matter where you live or how old you are -- contact me anytime and I'll see what I can do for you.


Bonjour, je suis américain, diplômé en enseignement d'anglais, actuellement à Lyon.

Je dirais que ce que j'apprécie le plus dans la vie c'est ça : (1) apprendre des nouvelles choses, (2) aider aux autres gens à apprendre des nouvelles choses, et (3) passer du temps dehors.

Heureusement, j'ai eu la chance de faire cettes choses beaucoup. J'ai travaillé pendant plusiers d'années en tant que formateur de lecture à Boston, et j'ai passé quelques années de plus en travaillant aux écoles, parmi lequel une école de langues en Grèce (c'est là que j'ai obtenu mon Certificat d’Enseignement de la langue anglaise, CTEFL, en l'an 2012). Par ailleurs, j'ai travaillé en tant que éducateur dans des cadres informels, telles que des centres d'éducation des sciences naturelles, des visites guidées historiques, et un musée.

Si nous avons l'opportunité de collaborer, je m'assurerai que le temps qu'on passe ensemble en apprenant est détendu, agréable et bien ciblé sur ce que vous voulez perfectionner.

"I'll root for you", comme on dit aux États-Unis: je vous soutiendrai et je serai votre supporteur #1! Peu importe votre âge ou votre point géographique -- contactez-moi a tout moment, et je verrai ce qu'on peut faire pour vous aider.


*CTEFL (Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language); Via Lingua, Crete; 2012. Graduated with "Distinction".

*Dual Degree: Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science; University of New Hampshire; 2008.


5+ years of teaching English language skills to adults, teenagers and primary school students, primarily in Boston, MA and Durham and Dover, NH (USA) and also in Chania and Heraklion (Greece).
