Dionne
Enthusiastic private tutor ready for new challenges
I am currently a part time Creative Writing and English Literature student. I have recently moved to London from Newcastle, where I was tutoring under 11s in English and Maths, helping them in preparation for exams. I have gained a great deal of knowledge from working with children of all ages and abilities, and I am ready to continue my journey with new challenges and experiences. I take time to first get to know my student, finding out what level they are currently working at. I then plan lessons with a variety of activities, keeping the student engaged while they learn. After a session or two the lessons become focused on completing goals which we discuss throughout our time together and making sure everything is understood. I also go through exam preparation, as well as working through learning related stress and anxiety. I approach learning from all angles, and I understand that intelligence is about more than just remembering facts.

Mark
Real Teacher Holder of Education, author of textbook (language & phonology) 23 years of experience offers neck
* Training linguist and author of textbook as such. => I am not a student in L1 who had a good grade in the Baccalaureate. I am a practicing, qualified teacher and holder of National Education. Teaching can not be improvised. This is something I feel I do well with 23 years of experience. I remind parents that to have 10/20 to the Baccalaureate, just have the level A2 (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd) so I let you imagine the despair of engineering students who must get at least 750 to the TOEIC! It's the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course gives rise to a detailed report. * In-depth knowledge of the European Framework. (A1 => C2) * Work of language activities. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, links ... The grammar of the oral. * Adaptation to all levels: => College - High school: beginner, false beginner ... => Post-baccalaureate: TOEIC preparation, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Oral and writings of the grandes écoles such as ENA => Oral and written business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...) => Engineering school: preparation for TOIEC.

English language courses from French to Spanish and from Italian
Effective teaching. Full of trick to be able to better master and better learn a language. A very good follow-up of the student as well as a lot of support and encouragement. The progress of learning depends largely on the student's motivation and the pace at which he feels most comfortable pursuing.

Valentin
ENGLISH course - become fluent in English, communicate in English without prejudice
Actor of formation having lived abroad (London and Toronto), I love English and I would like everyone to know how to speak it! There is indeed a delay in France with respect to English, which is remembered is spoken worldwide and is the first language of communication! And this comes mainly from the lack of confidence in the oral. That is why with you I will work above all on the ease and the confidence but also on the pronunciation and the rhythm.
