English classes provided by a friendly, enthusiastic and patient qualified teacher. After spending six years teaching in the Netherlands, I am currently living in London and offering classes in general English, business English, TOEFL and IELTS preparation, English for academic purposes and other specialised material.

Natalia
Russian, English, French language. Grammar, preparing for International exams.
Russian is a difficult language. It’s completely alien from English and most other languages. But you don’t need to make things more difficult than they seem. If you put in the time and effort required, you can get to a decent level of conversational Russian in a relative short time span. Russian is my native one. English is widespread, you can learn it with me. I learned English by myself, so I invented lots of trick to understand better the grammar. French is beautiful, an I worked with French for 17 years old, so I can teach you real French.

Tiffany
English tutoring with native speaker for all levels
Hello, I'm Tiffany! I've been teaching English for about 8 years now. It all started after I left the US to live abroad and has evolved in all types of ways. My approach is nothing pushy, I work with my students to see how they want lessons to go. I encourage my students to work on all points of language not just speaking. So some lessons can be grammar heavy, others we may focus on a light conversation because sometimes we just want to enjoy ourselves! Feedback is given and if it fits for the student homework is always available. *General English Lessons* We'll focus on all skills in these lessons! We'll read short articles, reviews and social media posts... These could be scientific or magazine articles. We'll listen and watch videos on interesting topics, learn different dialects and new words. I also use podcasts to hear how native language sounds in conversation. Grammar will also be a key element of our lessons. We'll analyze the most difficult areas, expanding your grammatical range. Writing is also important. We can look at how to write an email for work, an essay or even a simple sms. And, of course, speaking. We'll focus on your fluency and coherence, as well as expanding your vocabulary. Our topics can range from the pros and cons of living in a city to the future of life on Mars. I work on an interactive platform. You'll also have access to everything we work on during and after lessons on the platform.

Georgina
GCSE's English Literature and English Language Tutoring
Hi, I'm Georgie and I'm a graduate from UCL, who is currently studying a PhD in English Literature at the University of Reading. I'm a working researcher in English Literature with an extensive knowledge of all GCSE and A Level syllabuses. When I'm tutoring I like to make sure that the content is relatable. Shakespeare, An Inspector Calls, Of Mice and Men, Paradise Lost and especially poetry can be seen as rather daunting, but all of these texts have a relevancy to today. Lessons are fun and interactive. This is through practicing the question together, time practices (to get better at time management) and discussion based learning. I have a great track record with all students in the 2022 and 2023 exam season reporting passes with Grade 4 or above.
