English Language - Writing, Speaking, Listening Comprehension

Hi All!

Thank you for checking out my course.

I am a native Russian speaker, born and raised in Moscow. After completing middle school in Russia, I had then moved to Scotland and three years later had received the IB Diploma certificate with a score of 36 points. This, as well as my extracurricular achievements in performing arts, had secured me a place at King's College London in the UK. Having studied a variety of subjects at school in Scotland, from English and German literature to Maths, Sciences and Music allowed me to become fluent in English, and achieve mastery of "technical", that is to say, "scientific" English, as well as spoken English and slang. Needless to say that my writing skills have massively improved due to the large number of essays I had to write during my school and then uni career.

As I am finishing off my law degree, I am eager to offer my services as an English tutor for those who are thinking of taking up a new language, be it for academic or professional reasons, or simply for fun.

I believe that studying in three different countries have allowed me to try out and assess various approaches to education in general and teaching languages in particular - from the rigorous Russian system based on ensuring that the students will obtain exceptional spelling, grammar, syntax and punctuation skills, to the more relaxed yet more critical and analytical Western approach, focused on problem-solving and independent work.

There is a vast bank of techniques and methods that will be used in class to pique and maintain your interest. Due to my personal passion for literature, I would love to use extracts from novels and poetry to stimulate the student's creativity and understanding of style, as well as enhance their vocabulary and develop a deeper appreciation for the language.
And since I'm a student too, I would be able to share my personal tips and tricks with you to help you reach whatever goal you have set for yourself!

Extra information

About Me

Hi All,

It seems that all too often teachers, especially at public schools, stick to conventional, but sadly somewhat outdated teaching methods, ignoring modern developments in foreign language and culture.

Although this sounds innocent enough, this may have serious consequences for a student. If one sincerely wants to learn a a language, they have most likely considered travelling or perhaps even moving to their target country for a while. However, upon arrival, they might find themselves extremely alienated, unable to connect fully with its residents, which is an absolute nightmare.

But not to worry - as someone who had gone through the 'transition' phase, from a 'foreigner' to a 'pal from Russia', I will strive to go beyond vocabulary exercises, grammar and boring texts, using them as a foundation to assist the student in exploring the multitude of 'faces' of a foreign language, thus ensuring your ability to make long-lasting connections with so beautifully different, yet stunnigly similar folks from other countries.

Experience / Qualifications

Most of my tutoring experience comes from helping friends, classmates and fellow students improve their language skills, be it English, German or Russian. However, as someone who has had a lot of tutors in English and German back in the day, I think I have a pretty good idea of how to structure individual lessons, as well as what goes into curricular planning. That being said, I am quite flexible and would be more than happy to work towards your individual goals in addition to working through more conventional topics.
Hi All, thank you for checking out my course. This class is open to students of all levels. Whether you are only starting to learn the wild-looking letters of the Cyrillic alphabet, or whether you are looking to practise your written and spoken Russian, I would be delighted to accompany you at any stage of your Russian-learning journey. For more advanced students, I would be happy to help you get to know one of the most definiting aspects of the Russian language, namely its novels and poetry, which would be a great way to learn about the 'mysterious' Russian soul. I believe that studying in three different countries have allowed me to try out and assess various approaches to education in general and teaching languages in particular - from the rigourous Russian system based on ensuring that the students will obtain exceptional spelling, grammar, syntax and punctuation skills, to the more relaxed yet more critical and analytical Western approach, focused on problem-solving and independent work. There is a vast bank of techniques and methods that will be used in class to peak and maintain your interest. And since I'm a student too, I would be able to share my personal tips and tricks with you to help you reach whatever goal you have set for yourself - be it being able to wow your friends and family by reciting a poem in the language of Dostoyevski, or impressing your future collegues with the thorough knowledge of Russian current affairs in their mother tongue!

Spanish lessons/ Native teacher/İstanbul'da ve online özel İspanyolca dersi/ DELE/ özel yerli öğretmen / Clases de español/ スペイン語のレッスン。
My Spanish lessons will be skill and grammar focused. I will help the students to develop their language skills so that they can use them in real contexts. For the DELE and Cambridge assessment lessons the students must have a good command of the language because I will prepare them to know the structure of the tests while they practice and develop the main skills and sub skills needed to have a good result. İspanyolca derslerim beceri ve dilbilgisi odaklı olacak. Öğrencilerin, dili gerçek anlamda kullanmak için dil becerilerini geliştirmelerine yardımcı olacağım. DELE dersleri için öğrencilerin iyi derecede İspanyolca bilmesi gerekir ve onları testin yapısını bilmeye hazırlayacağım ve iyi bir sonuç elde etmek için gereken temel becerilerini ve alt becerilerini çalıştıracağım.

Teaching is one of my hobbies and I do this to help students by sharing my knowledge and skills, so if you think you are motivated enough to do your best then I will be more than happy to teach you! And if you aren't motivated enough, then I will do all I can to help you find that motivation that you need for success.

Abolaji
A remote & onsite Arabic class where students can learn speaking, writing & reading. It's also a class of Quran and Islamic Studies.
Hello! My name is Abolaji Abdrahman, from Nigeria. I have studied Arabic language (including reading, writing, listening and speaking skills). I also studied Quran & it's sciences, Tajweed, and other Islamic studies for more than fourteen years. I have studied Arabic from the International Open University and Arabic Institute. Currently, I'm also an Undergraduate student of Islamic Studies Education in the University of Lagos, Akoka. I also study under the tutelage of Sheikh Raslān from Egypt. I am a tutor of modern standard Arabic, classical Arabic (the language of Quran and Hadith) and colloquial Arabic ('āmiyyah). I love teaching Arabic because it is a very important language of Islam. Prophet Muhammad S.A.W said we should love Arabic language because: he is an Arabic, the holy Quran is in Arabic language and the language of the paradise dwellers is Arabic. I also love teaching Arabic language because it is the fifth most spoken language in the world. With Arabic language, you'll become a polyglot and you will be able to adapt to the environments of Arab. As a Muslim, with Arabic language, you'll have thorough understanding of Quran and Sunnah. I have been tutoring Arabic and Islamic Studies since 2014 both online and offline till date. I tutor the learners between the ages of 5 - 80. The focus of my instruction is on all the important skills of the language (reading, writing, listening and speaking), grammar and vocabulary development. With these, you'll be able to intermingle with Arabic speaking people in any Arab environment you find yourself and of course, you'll have yourself prepared and fit for any formal exam. I am also certified to instruct in the memorization of Quran, the sciences of Quran like different versions of Quranic recitation (riwāyāt), the exegesis of Quran (tafsīr), e.t.c I have syllabus and materials for tutoring Arabic efficiently within a period of six to twelve months. I'm well experienced in tutoring with these books: ➡️ I love Arabic ➡️ Lessons in Arabic language ➡️ Nūrul bayān ➡️ Iqrā' qirā'tī ➡️ Qā'idāh Nūrāniyyah ➡️ Qā'idāh Makkiyyah ➡️ Qā'idāh Baghdādiyyah ➡️ Arabic in your hands ➡️ Tuhfatul Atfāl ➡️ Exegesis of Ibn Kathīr e.t.c I also have experience in teaching English language and Philosophy. Learning English language helps in developing ideas and communicating them. I would be glad to be your tutor in this journey, choose me and you will not regret it. See you in my class! I have 7 years of teaching experience. I'm a certified Arabic and English teacher. I have TESL and simplified Arabic certification. My teaching method is philosophical, experimental and persuasive. My teaching approach is simple to complex.

Santiago
Clases virtuales conversacionales en inglés para jóvenes y adultos
Hola, Mi nombre es Santiago y estoy ofreciendo clases virtuales de inglés individuales y personalizadas para mejorar tanto su comunicación oral como escrita. El enfoque principal de mis clases se centra en desarrollar una comunicación del idioma inglés de manera fluida y estructurada ya sea para preparar exámenes internacionales, incluyendo el TOEFL y el FCE, o como para poder comunicarse adecuadamente en el ámbito profesional, o para reforzar y mantener el conocimiento previo de este idioma. Soy Licenciado, graduado en Florida Gulf Coast University en los E.E. U.U. Habiendo aprendido inglés desde chico en el Ivy Thomas Memorial School y vivido año y medio en Tailandia, seguido de 4 años en E.E. U.U. adquirí gran conocimiento y fluidez del idioma inglés. En Tailandia estuve año y medio estudiando arte en la comunicación y esto me ayudó a prepararme para mis estudios en E.E. U.U. Tuve varias clases de comunicación, aprendiendo técnicas de cómo hablar mejor usando no solo nuestras palabras, sino también nuestro cuerpo para ayudarnos a hablar de manera más natural, tranquila y sin ponernos nerviosos si nos trabamos o nos olvidamos de lo que queríamos decir. Durante mi carrera en los E.E. U.U. estuve constantemente escribiendo ensayos para mis clases, además de tener que exponer proyectos delante de mis profesores y compañeros de clase. Al mismo tiempo, estuve trabajando en la universidad y luego de graduado trabajé durante un año, principalmente teniendo largas conversaciones por teléfono con personas de todo el país. Hoy en día la habilidad para comunicarse en inglés es imprescindible y los voy a preparar para que puedan cumplir sus objetivos. Podrá ser, el de estudiar en el extranjero, irse a vivir a un país de habla inglesa, mejorar la comunicación en el ámbito profesional o practicar para no perder el nivel previamente adquirido. Si lo que estás buscando es mejorar tus conocimientos del idioma inglés, yo te voy a ayudar. Mi metodología es simple. Cada persona es diferente y adapto el contenido de mis clases a las necesidades e intereses de mis alumnos. Todos aprendemos de distintas maneras y en tiempos distintos, por eso es que diseño mis clases de manera individual.
