Jed
Accent Training for Public Speaking, Presentation and/or Conversation for Students and Professionals. (Intermediate English required)
Hey there! I'm Jed, an experienced Interior Designer and overall creative professional. I have about 4 years of professional experience teaching students and training professionals when I was living in Thailand from 2017 to 2021. For this course, I use a proven program that focuses on the vocal aspect of speaking English. You will learn the phonetics of different letter combinations, discussed with detail what to do with your mouth, tongue and breathing to be able to speak more clearly. Why does this work? Our tongues are muscles! And for non-native English speakers, we need to understand and practice to make proper sounds to speak English more clearly. Please note, I will not teach grammar. The goal of this class is not to sound like a native speaking American or British, the goal is to speak English clearly with a neutral accent easily understandable by anybody. What makes this course helpful to you as a student or a professional? Confidence! Being able to converse, speak and present in your university or professional presentations. Previous students taught were native speakers of Chinese, Thai, Filipino, Arabic, Spanish and Italian. Additional info about me: I am born and raised in the Philippines, lived in the US for 2 years, studied in Canada for 4 years, lived and worked in Thailand for 4 years and living in Barcelona, Spain for 2 years now! I went to an English speaking school my whole life and I consider myself in a native or bilingual level of English. Why I do this: I am heart and soul a designer, but teaching is a very important part of my life, and I truly enjoy sharing experiences with people!

Spanish Lessons - Native Teacher with extensive experience with American and UK students (online or in Madrid)
I am a Spanish native teacher, with extensive experience teaching Spanish to foreign students at from primary and secondary levels and higher education. I have taught American and UK students over the last seven years, whilst pursuing my studies in Spain and in the United Kingdom. I was recently awarded my PhD, through which I learnt methodological aspects of teaching different types of public from different backgrounds. My classes are dynamic and centred on the student's progress, carrying out different interactive activities, role-playing and exercises that will make the student increase his/her confidence with the use of Spanish, whilst learning grammar and vocabulary. I usually give the students the opportunity to send me writings that I correct at home, and I recommend listening activities that will help the student to improve his/her understanding of the language during lessons. My complete proficiency of the English language makes it easier for the student to ask specific questions or to understand how some expressions work in Spanish, having my English explanation at hand (in order to make them fully understand the most difficult aspect of Spanish). If you want to improve your Spanish in a quick and efficient manner, do not hesitate to get in touch and discuss options with me.

French lessons with a native speaker For every level
As a native French speaker living in such a cosmopolitan and diverse city as London, I believe that a lot of people would like to learn French. The first meeting we would evaluate your level with a simple conversation to get to know each other and see if we’re compatible as a student/teacher, and start planning a timeline for your objectives. Then I will adapt the class depending on your level, your expectations. It could be either conversations to practice speaking, more school-oriented classes, more work-oriented ones...
