Learn English one to one with a Native English Speaker
TEFL Certified English teacher teaching from A1-Beginner to C2-Proficiency/IELTS/FCE Exam Prep at Delfin English School, Dublin. Teaching one to one conversational, business, and academic English. All classes are taught to the level of the student. Lessons are based on the practical use of English to enable students to learn quickly and effectively with an even focus on pronunciation, grammar, speaking, writing, and vocabulary. Helping students be able to use the language fluently in everyday situations as well as interviews, business meetings, and Higher Education. In the first lesson, we can get to know each other and you can get an idea for how the lessons will be taught while letting me know what elements you'd like to focus on in the future.

Learn Spoken English for Communication and Public Speaking
These sessions are focused on English for people who encounter challenges in speaking and communicating and lack the techniques that are used for that purpose. We would develop situational vocabulary, corresponding verbs and adverbs that help transmit more precision when speaking. Our mission would be to see where you currently are in the language, strengthen any weak points and create awareness about points that need extra attention. These classes tend to take place in a more relaxed yet fun and stimulating environment. I constantly provide feedback to students about their progress and assign homework to ameliorate the practical and theoretical aspects of the English. This class is all about making English accessible and easy to learn to all through a variety of social and interactive stimulus.. You may request a full refund and get your money after the first class if you think that this class does not suit you.

Experiència de més de 20 anys donant classes d'anglès i català a grups reduïts d'ESO i Batxillerat i classes de repàs en el sector de les Humanitats. Doy clases de inglés desde hace muchos años. He impartido a grupos reducidos y a particulares de repaso (ESO y Bachillerato). Me desplazo. Busco estabilidad y continuidad para todo el curso. Enseñar es mi vocación. Por las mañanas trabajo en una empresa de telemárketing en BCN en un ambiente multicultural donde el inglés es nuestra lengua vehicular y a partir de las 16h tengo disponibilidad. Actualmente soy  profesor de inglés en la Academia English Studio, en Cornellà de Llobregat en turno  de  tardes. Todos los niveles y edades.

Busco estabilidad y continuidad en Academia o similar para todo el curso y en verano. Disponible también para empresas y online. También profesor de catalán y español. My name is Xavier. I was born in Barcelona... a long time ago. I grow up in this town, but now I live a bit far from here. I studied at the University of Barcelona and in Huddersfield (near Shefield, Halifax, Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool,...not very far from York: quite nice places and better people), and I've been teaching Catalan, Spanish, Phillsofy, History and English for a long time...since I was  16. What happened? Very short, I promise: I was walking down the street two years ago, from just opposite this private school, and I thought  myself: well, you might enter this place and see. I like English language very much... and the UK,... but I don' t have a poster of the Queen on my bedroom's wall. It was a sort of a blind date. And there she was: her smile, her diligence, effectiveness. Eva listened to me. And after two weeks she was texting me for a class. Please, Xavier, can you cover for some classes?  And here I am. (That was in the academy English Studio, untill13th March, when the lady in charge said literally that she would pass my 59 students to another teacher because I had no Internet at home, as I had recently moved to another town and had not had time to set the internet) #.................... Morning shift: Professional Objective: English teacher.   Professional experience More than 15 years in several Contact Centers as an Agent or as a Team Leader or  Supervisor.

Benson
Cambridge IGCSE First Language English 0500 & Second Language0510 (Speaking Endorsement)0511 (Count-in Speaking)
What is FLE? First language English, or FLE, is for native English speakers wishing to master their mother tongue and emphasizes the appreciation of literature, analysis and response to wide ranging genres of fiction and non-fiction texts. On the other hand, what is ESL? Second language English, or ESL, is for non-native speakers wishing to master English in an academic or school environment. Learning English as a second language focuses on effective use of English, building a wide range of vocabulary and the necessary skills to communicate effectively through speaking, listening, reading and writing.

Learn languages with pleasure, individual classes possible.
This course is for all language students. Highly qualified teacher with great international experience. My goal is to teach you with pleasure and excellent progress! I use many interactive exercises, fun and easy. I explain grammar with clarity and patience. Pleasure in learning is your key to result !

Corinne
English: pronunciation (British or American) or conversation. NO grammar lessons.
I have facilitated workshops and given classes throughout my career all over the world. English pronunciation is essential these days because English is spoken everywhere and all the time. I followed specialized training such as the verb tonal method, Feldenkrais or mental coaching. We are therefore going to work in a slightly different way by combining articulatory techniques, movement, rhythm, intonation, warming up of the jaw and tongue, stretching of the neck, neck and shoulders to arrive to very fast results.

Almasa
English language classes for students, kids and adults
Hi, my name is Almasa. I hold BA of English language and literature, besides that, I hold TEFL-TESOL certificate for 120 teaching hours from European Center for Education. I worked as an English teacher for three years, and during that period of time I worked with diverse students, starting from kids to adults. Therefore I can teach any age. Right now I work at Bahcesehir Koleji in Istanbul. I believe that the key to good teaching is to make any topic or material comprehensive, dividing it into smaller units.

Christina Yen-Chun,
Chinese Mandarin, 8 years of experience, Daily Chinese, patient, 1 by 1
Chinese is both deep and interesting. Its grammar is simple, but the reading and writing are full of "surprises". I am Taiwanese and very happy to share and teach my native language. I live in Delémont, Switzerland. In Taiwan, I taught Chinese to foreigners; i have been in international business for almost 20 years and have been exposed to cultures from over 50 different countries. Everyone is always full of freshness and curiosity for Chinese ... Now I will share with you the pleasure and the harvest of learning Chinese. My course is mainly oral, and at the end I hope to be able to speak to you in Chinese. The goal is obviously to be able to express oneself. I personalize all my documents so that the level corresponds to everyone's interests. My students are regardless of their age. (They are teenagers, adults and even retirees) I also created a "WhatsApp" group to promote learning on a daily basis because it is important to continue having fun. I am really passionate about my job and would love to teach you my native language.

Amin
Conversational English: Conversation Practice and Improvement
I teach conversational English. The initial purpose of my lessons is to get my students to practice speaking English. "Practice makes perfect", it's true, but during our practice sessions, we will soon discover our weak spots and we will have to address them. The real purpose is not just practice but IMPROVEMENT. So we will dedicate a portion of our sessions together to fixing pronunciation and learning the proper way to use tenses and grammar in everyday speech. By the end of this course, you should be able to speak English fluently and confidently.
