English Tutoring (CELTA qualified, native English speaker)

I am a native-English speaker with a degree and a CELTA certificate. I have just spent a year teaching English in Belgium, and was able to form special and lasting relationships with my students there. I specialise in teaching English to older students and adults, from pre-intermediate to upper-intermediate levels. My teaching focuses on contextualising English in a useful way, so that the language can be most successfully used in real life. I keep my lessons entertaining and use lots of student-focused communicative practice. I am also able to offer support with more specific areas such as CVs and written work, proofreading and job interview preparation. I am a friendly, supportive and dedicated teacher :)

About Me

I am currently studying for an MA degree in London after successfully teaching English for a year in Belgium, and am looking to find people who want to improve their English skills :)
I am very hard-working and really care about all of my students. I am very flexible and am willing to travel to teach at student's location.
My teacher training focused on using as much communicative practice as possible so that students learn to engage with the language effectively, whilst practicing receptive skills such as listening/reading for gist and specific information. However, depending on the student's goals and requirements, I will work out which methods are best suited for you as an individual learner!

MA in History at the The University of Edinburgh
40 points IB score at RIS - Rome International School

ISH - International School of the Hague

Marianna
Experienced Tutor of Italian and English as a Second language
I am a tutor of Italian and English as a foreign/second language. I had the opportunity to teach in different contexts with multicultural groups of students from many countries and backgrounds. I am currently teaching Italian to individual students and corporate clients with different language requirements and purposes. I have also conducted a preparation course for Italian GCSE and A level exams in London. I teach to all levels and ages using a communicative and student-centred approach. My lessons are very interactive and focused on real life and cultural situations. I care about my students’ learning progress and achievements and I am keen to guide them in a friendly, dedicated and respectful manner. Moreover, one of my main goals as a teacher is to enable my students to enjoy the experience of communicating, thinking and reacting in a foreign language.

Josh
Online International School Teacher - IGCSE, A-Level, AP, IB MYP/DP, etc. English, Philosophy, Business, History, Sociology, Humanities +
I am a UK-qualified teacher with a decade of experience teaching and leading at some of the best international schools around the world - Europe, Asia, Africa and South America. My work teaching and leading departments in schools included curriculum planning and design, assessing & tracking hundreds of students, supporting student university applications, and implementation of additional measures for students with specific learning support needs. I believe that education is most effective as an interesting, constructive and engaging discussion between student, class and teacher; enjoyable and stimulating, rather than stressful and pressure-laden. I keep my classes light and relevant, while also maintaining high standards for students to build their expectations for themselves. I am CELTA-qualified and my experiences teaching non-native English around the world have helped me understand the challenges faced by students studying subjects in their second- or third- language. If you're having some challenges with your studies, please feel free to reach out to me and we can talk about your needs and a plan. All my classes are online. Subjects I offer: English Language/Literature Business Studies/Management History Geography Social Studies/Sciences Philosophy Theory of Knowledge Global Perspectives Sociology Psychology Politics Civics

Henry
English Literature and Language for GCSE and A-Level
I find students typically respond best to an lesson-style that closely mirrors Oxbridge-style supervisions, which might be called diagnostic; a written homework task provides not only useful opportunity for correcting rather specific details of style, grammar and dialectic --thus developing the corresponding skill of self-criticism -- but also serves as a springboard for explorations into the history, context, literary techniques and critical response of the work, or works at hand. I hope to help the student move beyond the set-texts, authors, or plays; not only because this would of itself be interesting, helping to develop the enthusiasm that is certainly the most vital ingredient for success in exams, but because being acquainted with the broader literary/cultural context that a work is situated greatly deepens one’s understanding of it. Moving beyond the set-texts needn’t be very time-consuming; often a few short articles, a chapter of a book, a poem or a play can dramatically broaden one’s perspective. Together with acquiring knowledge of historical context, the chief aims of my lessons will also be to help the student develop their ability to analyze texts.

English language, culture or literature courses
Having already given English lessons in France, I offer my services to help you progress. English is my native language, so I can teach it to you, in a fun or more serious way, through discussion and therefore correcting oral mistakes. In writing, I can help you with spelling, grammar etc ...

FR - Hi, I'm Lucie and I would be happy to help you learn English, whether it's from scratch or to improve your knowledge. I love getting my students to speak since I think practice is the secret to learning a language and improving knowledge. I always structure my classes according to themes based on real life (how to present myself, how to make an appointment, to go shopping, to go to the doctor, English at work, etc.). We will see together grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. If you are intermediate, we will also do text lessons. We will put both grammar and vocabulary into practice. EN - Hi, I'm Lucie and I would be glad to help you learn English, be it from scratch or to help you improve. I love to make my students speak since I strongly believe that practice is the key to learn a language and to improve your knowledge. I always structure my lessons according to subjects based on daily life situations (how to introduce yourself, how to make an appointment, shopping / grocery, going to the doctors, professional language, etc). We'll go through the grammar, vocab, and pronunciation. If you're intermediate, we'll also do some lessons about reading comprehensions. We'll put both the grammar and vocab in practice.

Julia
Private French & German classes with native speaker + English classes! (IELTS, TOEFL)
Hi! ^_^ I'm a French and German native speaker and have been teaching languages since age 17. Over years I've realized Psychology plays a huge part in teaching and I was so passionate about it that I decided to study Psychology in one of the best universities in the world. I love applying my knowledge, experiences and skills from university to what I do and there is nothing better than seeing the progress of my students after huge amounts of work. I'm mulilingual - my mom always spoke German to me ever since I was born, and my father is French and he always spoke French to me. I first went to a German school, then to a private French school and now I'm in the UK system - so, my abilities in these three languages are more or less the same, and I am accent-free in all of them. My classes are all one to one, tailored to my students' needs, and I always try to make learning fun. I love accumulating knowledge, I love learning new things, and when I teach, I try to pass this enthusiasm on to my students. I'm happy to meet you wherever works best for you (online, at your home, at my home, in a park...). Really looking forward to meeting you! Sincerely, Julia.
