English Pronunciation and British Accent training.
Do you feel that people have problems understanding you? Or perhaps you feel less confident at work due to your accent. As it is not phonetic, English is a tricky language to pronounce! I am a Native British CELTA qualified English teacher with over 8 years of experience. In the last 5 years, I have helped dozens of students to improve their pronunciation and even develop a British accent. During these classes, I can help you to do the same! This takes place through studying sounds, phonics, mouth placement, listening and lots and lots of practice. All classes are tailored to your own pronunciation and accent needs. Learning pronunciation is really fun and can even help you to sound better in your native tongue! I have had great success with students in helping them to speak much clearer and more authentically. After a good amount of training, some students are even able to pass as native speakers! Although I am a British English speaker, I do have knowledge of American English accents and can help you to develop a more 'international sound' which may be more suitable for your needs. I currently have hours available for classes online due to COVID-19 restrictions. Working online via Zoom is great! We can use lots more media tools, focus directly on mouth formation and I have had lots of success with it.

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.

Sandra
English classes for children, adolescents and adults
English can be a barrier both at school and in everyday adult life. However, we can tame that dragon and be an ace in all skills. My classes are focused above all on support with this second language at all levels, from primary school to high school, but also to obtain Cambridge degrees. First we will do a level evaluation and from there we will focus on the different skills (or skills) until we pilot them. The classes are totally personalized to each student.

Cristina Pijoan

I offer, through this course, conversational practice and help with grammar. I work online, I am a university student and therefore I know how to help and what makes a good teacher. In addition, I am flexible and adapt to different schedules.

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.

ENGLISH, GRAMMAR, PRONUNCIATION, TRAVEL ENGLISH, TAGALOG
I am an ESL teacher for 8 years now. I taught English to my students who live in other countries. Even though I am a teacher of the English language, I am a Filipino, and our native language is Tagalog. I can teach young learners and adults our mother tongue, as it is the first language I have spoken. Tagalog is the language that I am confident in teaching. I am good, especially with grammar, spelling, pronunciation, etc. I can be a good teacher for my future students. With ESL, I have taught English to my students from other countries, such as South Korea and China. I also have a Teaching as a Foreign Language, or TEFL certificate. My experience as an ESL teacher has been a great help to me in teaching my students excellently. I have taught from young learners to adults. I also handled business English for business people. I also had experience teaching IELTS.
