English Pronunciation and British Accent training.

Do you feel that people have problems understanding you? Or perhaps you feel less confident at work due to your accent. As it is not phonetic, English is a tricky language to pronounce!

I am a Native British CELTA qualified English teacher with over 8 years of experience. In the last 5 years, I have helped dozens of students to improve their pronunciation and even develop a British accent.
During these classes, I can help you to do the same!
This takes place through studying sounds, phonics, mouth placement, listening and lots and lots of practice. All classes are tailored to your own pronunciation and accent needs. Learning pronunciation is really fun and can even help you to sound better in your native tongue!

I have had great success with students in helping them to speak much clearer and more authentically. After a good amount of training, some students are even able to pass as native speakers!
Although I am a British English speaker, I do have knowledge of American English accents and can help you to develop a more 'international sound' which may be more suitable for your needs.

I currently have hours available for classes online due to COVID-19 restrictions. Working online via Zoom is great! We can use lots more media tools, focus directly on mouth formation and I have had lots of success with it.

She is a brilliant teacher!
Eva is a great teacher! She is truly organised, skillful and always with a positive attitude and patience to listen and guide. She answers to student needs with a solid knowledge and experience teaching the language, and a clear method. I do recommend Eva!
Lessons with Eva are very helpful! The lessons are flexible both in terms of time and content. I am glad that you can bring your own material to the class and work with it. I highly recommend Eva as a teacher!
There’s no overstating how important a role a teacher can play in one’s life. With the amount of time they spend with us, watching us grow into better professionals, the academic evolution and the foremost into more responsible human beings. I can affirm categorically that Eva seems to be a great teacher, and I am very optimistic to the journey we will start together. Yesterday when I had a meeting with her I felt like she is a lady who cheer up the students and help them according to their needs. And most import she teach life lessons of confidence. Teachers and professors who taught life lessons are far greater than teaching standard based content. I am very happy I found this lady. She is also very inspiring and have an impressive positive and lovely personality. And who is just like me seeking for help, I will definitely recommend her. Thank you Eva ❤️ Giovanna.

These sessions are focused on English for people who encounter challenges in writing, speaking, reading and listening and lack correct grammar and skills. We would develop situational vocabulary, corresponding verbs and adverbs that help transmit more precision when using English. Our mission would be to see where you currently are in the language, strengthen any weak points and create awareness about points that need extra attention. Together we would go through all the English aspects that you should be aware of and implicate the knowlege aquired in real intresting topics and activities. These classes tend to take place in a more relaxed yet fun and stimulating environment. I constantly provide feedback to students about their progress and assign homework to ameliorate the practical and theoretical aspects of the English. This class is all about making English accessible and easy to learn to all through various social and interactive stimulation You may request a full refund and get your money back after your class if you believe that it doesn't suit you .

British accent training for Middle East children and adults
I’m a British accent trainer for Middle Eastern students, this means I help get reduce the affect of regional or first-language influence on the pronunciation of English. I am also medical graduate from the United Kingdom and can tutor in subjects such as biology, chemistry, ESL and English language.

Corinne
English: pronunciation (British or American) or conversation
I have facilitated workshops and given classes throughout my career all over the world. English pronunciation is essential these days because English is spoken everywhere and all the time. I followed specialized training such as the verb tonal method, Feldenkrais or mental coaching. We are therefore going to work in a slightly different way by combining articulatory techniques, movement, rhythm, intonation, warming up of the jaw and tongue, stretching of the neck, neck and shoulders to arrive to very fast results.

My unique background, with experience in corporate world as well as in academia, enables me to provide my students with a high quality learning experience.

Julia
Private lessons many subjects (school period and holidays) college-high school level
I offer weekly lessons or internship revisions, remediation by skills, upgrading for high school students, in several subjects: mathematics, French, English, German, SVT (from the 1st, see my other announcement), scientific education and philosophy (mainly subject analysis). Associate professor currently available from the National Education for family reasons (I am therefore no longer in a post in an establishment since 01/09/2021 and am no longer an employee of the EN), I have a double course literary and scientific and gives private tutoring in many subjects in video under autoentrepreneur status. With 10 years of teaching experience in secondary school, with several bac juries to my credit, and many years of experience of private lessons (including 3 years in main activity during a previous availability), I offers you my help in these different disciplines, which I am used to teaching in private lessons and which I have sometimes been asked to teach in the context of short-term replacements in college (replacements for colleagues from English and French late in having replacements appointed to their posts). My classes combine rigor and benevolence, professionalism, dynamism and humor, according to my former students, when they mention the help that I was able to provide them. I am used to working with multi-dys, AD / HD, high potential and Asperger's students as well. I insist a lot on scientific methodology and the quality of writing, in science as in literary subjects. I can help you optimize your learning and memorization techniques, help you get to the point, make mental maps. We will also work on the general organization of your work if necessary. I also and above all want to pass on to you my pleasure of learning, which continues to inspire me even today. Having given private lessons for a long time in person at home, I now want to focus on Visio lessons on Zoom, Skype, or any other videoconferencing software. I have been practicing video-format lessons since March 2020 and since then have been more equipped to ensure greater comfort for my students: headphones with microphone (quality sound), graphics tablet connected to an interactive whiteboard, camera-viewer of documents, front lighting reducing unpleasant shadows, Véléda paintings behind me. Small group lessons are also possible. If your child has a classmate who is having difficulty in the same subject, or his or her older sibling needs the same kind of help, it is possible. In this case, the price is decreasing for each participant. Please respect the reserved hours. The courses are adjustable in advance. Any course canceled less than 24 hours in advance is due at 50%. Indeed, the time that I could waste managing multiple cancellations and rescheduling of courses is time that I cannot put to the service of the success of my students. In addition, the presence of a framework, of operating rules is necessary for the investment of the students who engage in a process of accompaniment. So, I also ask you to be punctual and to start your computer and your videoconferencing software a few minutes in advance in order to start the session on time, not to waste precious minutes of class (the session will end at the time initially scheduled ... 10 minutes late means 10 minutes of lost lessons) and to respect the students who have lessons after you. I look forward to meeting you and bringing you my help and expertise.
