About Me

Language Tuition offered: ENGLISH as a Second/Foreign Language (ESL), GERMAN, ITALIAN.

I have always loved languages with a passion since I was a child. I believe that learning another language has many benefits, which I would like to share with students. Languages enrich us by opening up insights into a different culture and mentality.
Learning a foreign language also exercises our brain cells, keeping us mentally fit.
Communicating in the native language of a country visited, whether for business, study or pleasure, brings huge rewards.
For beginners or improvers wishing to learn or build on their knowledge of ENGLISH (as a foreign language), GERMAN or ITALIAN I can help with both the spoken and written language. The tuition can cover conversation practice, building fluency and confidence in the spoken language, and/or grammar and writing practice.
The tuition is always tailored to suit each individual student. My aim is always to take your knowledge to the next level, whilst keeping the tuition interesting, enjoyable and fun.

Carol is a great teacher. She listens to the needs of the student. Her material is very well done. She has a solid knowledge of the language and is very good at explaining.
Very good teacher, very attractive course, best teacher ever
Carol really puts a great effort into every english lesson. Not only during the lesson, also befor the lesson. She searches for good exercises. Overall a very great and fun english teacher!
I wanted to brush up my German and Carol proved to be the perfect tutor. She designed a course to match my needs and was happy to adapt it as I progressed. She provided preparation work to support really effective face-to-face courses which included conversation practice around topics I chose. Carol is a highly professional language teacher who loves her job and shows infinite patience and flexibility. Her half-German background meant she understood my pitfalls and gently corrected and explained them. Her lessons were great fun and -Eureka! I finally feel more confident in German. I can recommend Carol 100%. Chris

Passionate native Italian to teach you both essential and authentic ITALIANO!
This class is for aiming for confident Italian speakers and practice is the best way to improve language fluency.

Yolanda
ESL/EFL Online English Language Tutor - Individuals
My lessons are student-centred, flexible, and fun! Lessons are continuously adapted to suit the individual; every lesson is structured based on the needs of the student. The focus of lessons will initially be based on a student needs assessment carried out at the start of your course, and subsequent lessons will be adapted based on your progress and changing needs throughout the duration of a specific course. Learning areas identified may include: * Refining your pronunciation * Practicing everyday language and conversational skills * Exam preparation, focusing on specific grammar and/or vocabulary * Reading comprehension and practice * Writing correction and practice * Job interview preparation Lessons are conducted in English, since this has shown to be the most effective way for students to learn a foreign or second language. It is recommended to book a course of at least 20 hours to start with.

Yen-Chun,
Chinese Mandarin, 8 years of experience, Daily Chinese, patient, 1 by 1
Chinese is both deep and interesting. Its grammar is simple, but the reading and writing are full of "surprises". I am Taiwanese and very happy to share and teach my native language. I live in Delémont, Switzerland. In Taiwan, I taught Chinese to foreigners; i have been in international business for almost 20 years and have been exposed to cultures from over 50 different countries. Everyone is always full of freshness and curiosity for Chinese ... Now I will share with you the pleasure and the harvest of learning Chinese. My course is mainly oral, and at the end I hope to be able to speak to you in Chinese. The goal is obviously to be able to express oneself. I personalize all my documents so that the level corresponds to everyone's interests. My students are regardless of their age. (They are teenagers, adults and even retirees) I also created a "WhatsApp" group to promote learning on a daily basis because it is important to continue having fun. I am really passionate about my job and would love to teach you my native language.

Jessica
Private English lessons (language, pronunciation, culture ...)
Everyone learns differently and at their own pace, so I adapt my teaching to the needs of my student. Remedial lessons, pronunciation, writing or general comprehension assistance. Learning the language alone or combined with culture, anything is possible! I have a bachelor's degree in translation (English / Chinese) as well as a master's degree in multilingual communication (English / French). At the same time, I also took intensive English courses at a university in Florida and courses in modern language teaching. Do not hesitate to contact me for more details.
