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 :)

Extra information

Will likely use key textbooks from the National Geographic "Outcomes" series.

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!

Education

MA in History at the The University of Edinburgh
40 points IB score at RIS - Rome International School
ISLQ - International School of London in Qatar
ISH - International School of the Hague

Experience / Qualifications

- CELTA (Cambridge approved Certificate for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages)

Maria
French, affordable and for all levels and purposes!
For all levels, for both children and adults, and diploma preparation. All aspects of the language would be targeted during the lessons, emphasizing those desired by the student (ex: conversational, grammar) Depending on the level and the method of study will be adapted to each student, with outside-of-class follow up. The classes will be conducted in either English, French, or both, once again depending on the needs and the level of the student. Classes focused on the reinforcement of the language can also be organised, focused on specific topics that the student is interested in, which will allow the student not to lose the language and to develop further their knowledge of lexicon in the specific area. In what concerns diploma preparation, the lessons will focus on the particularities of the tests (timing, response format, lexicon, etc).

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.

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.

Suzanne

Pim
Native Student Offering Dutch Classes At Preferred Location
Hi, my name's Pim! I'm a native Dutch speaker (from Amsterdam) and I'm currently studying European Social and Political Studies at UCL. Before this, I have lived in France for two years (studying at Sciences Po), so I know what it's like to have to learn a new language I was not that familiar with. I have already tutored for French and English at middle and high school levels. It is totally up to you whether this will be a beginner's, an intermediate or an advanced class. Also, if you have any question, please do not hesitate to contact me, I am quite responsive!

English and Latvian Language Tutoring for all levels
I specialise in English and Latvian language tutoring. Can help with all levels of language training, from beginners to professional/academic writing. Can teach students new skills on how to improve their conversational English and Latvian, grammar, general vocabulary, or provide more strucural assistance. Also, I offer proof-reading services for those looking for someone to read over their work. My goal is to keep students motivated, as I understand how difficult it is to learn a new language. I will keep my students challenged and excited for their classes, and not feel overwhelmed by their study.
