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.

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.

Classes de inglés (ONLINE) - English lessons (ONLINE) - English lessons (ONLINE)
ESP - Hola, soy Lucie y me encantaría ayudarte a aprender inglés, que sea principiante más avanzado. Me encanta hacer mis estudiantes hablar porque pienso que la práctica es el segredo para aprender un idioma o mejorar tu conocimiento. Siempre organizo mis clases por temas inspirados en la vida cotidiana (como presentarse, como hacer una cita, ir de compras, una cita con el medico, inglés profesional, etc.). Haremos ejercicios de gramática, vocabulario y de pronunciación. Se tienes el nível intermedio, haremos clases con artigos para que puedas hablar. Así pondremos la gramática y el vocabulario en práctica. Y pueda dar clases in español (o portuñol). 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. And hey, I can teach in English if you want! 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.

French private lessons: Language and communication [ONLINE]
I am a French teacher. I have been teaching French, language, and communication since 2012. I speak Arabic, French, Spanish, a little English, and a little Turkish. I give my lessons in French, Arabic or Spanish, depending on your choice. During the session, I explain the course that suits your needs. There is also the option to create an open discussion so that you can speak fluently over time and avoid grammatical gaps. And at the end of each session, I give "lessons" with "exercises" to do as homework to continue our support and increase your level.

Abolaji Abdrahman
This is an Arabic class where students can learn speaking, writing & reading. It's also a class where Quran and Islamic Studies are taught.
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. It is the official language of 26 countries including 5 of the wealthiest countries in the world. And it's sixth most spoken language in the world. Learning such a language will avail you to the discovery of most interesting cultures in today's world. It will also look good in your resume. 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.

Learn to confidently speak English - lessons can be in French, Urdu and Hindi
As someone who can speak 5 languages fluently, I have over the years grasped the best way to efficiently learn new languages. I have experience working in 2 primary schools, where I had the opportunity to observe other teachers and learn from good practice. Being a firm believer that everyone has a different way of learning, I will urge students to let me know in advance their desired way of learning so I can prepare curated lessons just for them to make the most of our lectures. As a future lawyer, I have experience in advocacy, mooting, public speak and will work towards making students feel comfortable in speaking English.

Self-Esteem & Resilience Building Program - Leading to Better Grades, Better Mental Health & Better Future Prospects
A step-by-step tuition program that: Builds self-esteem Increases resilience Improves wellbeing Improves communication Improves study skills Resources provided include: -Mentoring -3D animation videos to explain concepts -Worksheets -Other supplementary materials This program has been turned into a workshop and will be delivered at both Oxford and Cambridge universities for first year students. Every student needs assistance to rebound after the pandemic and lockdowns. I have the expertise to get students back on track. I have tutored students from the most prestigious schools in the country as well as students internationally. Some of the students I have worked with have attended world renowned institutions like Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard & MIT. I have delivered talks at schools on student success and have authored four books on topics such as productivity, time-management, self-discipline & confidence. I have founded the first online personal development academy for teenagers (Nexgen Teens) based around a holistic approach to learning called The Nexgen Method which I created. I also create wellbeing & mental health resources for young people at schools and universities. My role is not only in preparing students for the future but it is giving them the confidence to shape it. My objective is to inspire, motivate and cultivate ambitious young students who have the ability to identify and fulfil their aspirations. I combine five interlinked components that, if worked on in tandem, can drastically change a students life for the better and aid them in becoming the pioneers of the future. These 5 strands are: 1) Mindset 2) Wellbeing Management 3) Study Skills 4) Life Skills 5) Leadership Development I place a special emphasis on personal development and this is what makes me different. I believe it is possible to equip students with the mindset and skillset to radically alter their lives for the better. My instruction goes beyond this by including study skills such as note-taking, memory improvement techniques, speed-reading, and effective revision into its program. These skills will stay with pupils and enlighten their entire academic tenure. Finally, my role is also about offering guidance to students in terms of their current issues, academic future and potential career paths. My educational system is a result of years of lessons I myself learned progressing through the academic arena all the way to university level. In addition, it encompasses all the research I have conducted in self-improvement, effective study skills and successful leadership. These methods have been tested and proven successful. I hope to impart this knowledge to the next generation and watch them do great things with it. Yours sincerely, Ash

Learn Arabic , french , English and Moroccan darija
Hello , my name is aicha Arabic language is my native language, I have already given Arabic lessons for beginners and who were able to improve their level.

Albanian Tuition for English Speaking Students by an Albanian Native speaker
I am a native Albanian speaker that will be able to teach you everything you want to know, boost your confidence and help you with your accent in Albanian at all levels. Albanian grammar can be very tricky and hard, but together we will make it as easy as possible! I started teaching in Albanian about 3 years ago and I also do a part-time translation job. In addition, I always offer help to translate from English to Albanian or vice versa to Albanian family and friends. Most of my students are Albanian children that are raised in the UK and do not speak Albanian fluently, so their parents make sure to contact me, so I can teach them and I have had amazing results! In addition, partners of Albanian natives contact me, so they can communicate better with their spouse and the rest of the spouse's family, or even try to slowly - slowly teach their newborn children!

Business English Lessons for Effective Business Communication (online/offline)
Apart from general English language learning, this type of classes will focus more on English business vocabulary, grammar, business writing, business conversation and listening comprehension. This class would be suitable for people who plan (or already do) to study business/economics, want to enhance business skills for the business trips/clients, want to communicate and network effectively with international people in English. For this class I will use several books as materials (popular editions) dedicated to Business English growth. I will involve much conversational practice and discussion activities of specific topics. The material (books, texts, exercises) will be shared with a student. All the classes and preparation for them will be adapted to each student individually. Feel free to contact me for questions or book a time slot for a class.

Private lessons in History-Geo, SES and English for the Baccalaureate ES
Student at the London School of Economics (LSE) in History, I earned my Baccalaureate ES honors in 2016. I have always loved exchanging and transmitting what I learned. My mother is a teacher of German, I am immersed in the world of education since always. I started giving private lessons when I was in high school, and I continue today. I help academically and psychologically ES students in History-Geography, SES and English. I explain the course in detail (if necessary), and we work on the methodology for each event, the organization and the planning of the work to be done. For example, I started working with two students in high difficulty in April (overall average around 7-8 out of 20), and they just got their baccalaureate, including one with honors. I also worked with another student the year before, who earned the distinction Very Good (with 19/20 in SES).

French OR English Conversation and Learning Classes
The aim of my classes is to focus on conversation as I truly believe that it is one of the most effective techniques. Depending on the level the classes would vary from reading to pronunciation to oral understanding. I am originally french but have been studying in English since the age of 14.

Buongiorno amici! - Learn ITALIAN, the most melodious language ever
Are you looking forward to learn Italian with young and enthusiastic native speaker? This is the class for you! I can't wait to teach you all I know about my wonderful language, using both traditional methods (grammar is so important!) and alternative ones, like some of the most beautiful Italian songs. And, who knows, maybe I will teach you also some super tasty Italian recipes! I also teach Italian for the working sector, which is very different from the informal one and requires a specific focus on formal writing and speaking. 1. For Children: with young learners, I start from the basis and my purpose is to show them how entertaining can be learning a language. I do pronunciation, listening, speaking, writing and grammar as well, all step by step. 2. For Adults: I will focus even more on the speaking and writing parts, CLIL words and grammar. Without losing the fun of learning something so great!

My goal is to keep students challenged yet interested in my lesson.
