I did an Engineering master in France (ESEO) and a Business master (ESSCA) in the goal to be a trade Engineer.
I was a tennis teacher for 4 yours to pay for my studies. My pupils were from 3 to 80 years old, so I have experience in management and tutoring also because I gave for 2 years mathematics lesson in Nantes.
I can give Mathematics lesson thanks to my studies and French lesson because that's my native language, and I like to share my experience.

I'm very calm, and I have a lot of patience, I think that it's the most important in tutoring.
