Experienced and enthusiastic qualified Spanish Tutor!

I consider myself a fun, responsible and hardworking person who does all her best to prepare dynamic and entertaining learning lessons. I take pride in striking up relationships with my students and personalising their learning and listening to their needs and suggestions.

I employ a student-centred approach that checks how the students feel regarding their own progression and offers encouragement at all times.
My classes follow a communicative approach being conversational skills the main focus. My classes follow a logical structure and are predominantly delivered in the target language so to increase exposure to the language. Each class will try and cover all of the skills associated with learning a language i.e. listening, writing, reading and speaking through the use of activities that will prepare you for everyday scenarios. I prepare and provide my students with all the activities, handouts, references, podcasts and useful resources to supplement their learning, all tailored to the students' specific goals. Homework is marked outside the lessons to maximise your time in the class.

All this experience has helped me to refine my lessons which are delivered in a clear and concise manner and at a suitable pace. I utilise different forms of media when appropriate to engage and deliver the objectives of the lesson.

Previous experience includes working as a Spanish tutor in Coventry Univeristy and as a Spanish teacher at Albert Bradbeer Primary Shool.

Phillip
Private French lessons for adults and teenagers with native French speaker in Co. Mayo
For the past two decades, I've had the privilege of tutoring in both French and English. My students have ranged in age, background, and origin, spanning children, teenagers, adults, professionals, and even seniors aged 85 and above. You might wonder why I teach both languages. Well, I am bilingual, with American and Swiss/French roots, and I currently reside in Ireland. This unique blend of experiences equips me with a strong and relevant teaching approach. I possess an intimate understanding of both cultures, enabling me to tailor my classes to the specific needs of my students. My teaching journey began during my time studying social work in French-speaking Switzerland. I started offering private French and English lessons to supplement my income, and I quickly discovered my passion for it. Even after graduating and embarking on a full-time career, I couldn't bear to give up this rewarding activity. I cherished the opportunity to connect with diverse individuals and assist them in achieving their language goals. In my teaching methodology, interactivity takes center stage. I employ a variety of engaging learning tools, including photos, newspaper articles, music, videos, and more. My approach is highly adaptable, with a focus on addressing each student's unique priorities. Some seek to refine their pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary, while others require assistance with presentations or speeches for school or work. Some simply aspire to acquire a new language to enrich their general knowledge. I also specialize in teaching younger children, a testament to my educational background and experience. What you will gain from my courses extends beyond impeccable pronunciation and enhanced vocabulary and grammar. You'll also acquire a profound understanding of the culture associated with each language. When speaking a language, it's essential to appreciate the lifestyle, traditions, and heritage of the nations where it thrives. French and English are spoken as primary languages in numerous countries worldwide, each with its own unique accent and cultural nuances. The learning process is limitless! In addition to my language instruction, I'm a genealogist and host spiritual (non-religious) seminars in the beautiful West of Ireland. My passion for vegetarian and vegan cuisine adds a flavorful dimension to my life. Furthermore, I hold a degree in Early Childhood Education and have operated a private "Before & Afterschool" facility along with Summer Camps catering to children aged 4 to 12 for many years. I am genuinely excited about the prospect of meeting and working with you!

Giorgia
Italian language lessons from a native speaker - any level
Hello everyone! I'm Giorgia and I come from Torino, Italy. I offer my native knowledge of Italian to any of you, who wants to discover this beautiful language. I teach for all levels, from very beginners to advanced speakers, passing through amateurs or simply curious of any age. I can also help with university exams and school works/assignments. Being a pianist and a piano teacher, I already have lots of experience with teaching and pedagogical approach with the whole range of ages. The lesson is intended to meet the student needs: the focus can be on the grammar, conversation or literature. In case of a middle-level speaker, the lesson will cover all four language's abilities: listening, speaking, writing and reading. My suggestion of a well planned lesson is, for any level, to divide it into two parts: grammar first and then conversation (covering all the abilities mentioned above). Thank you for your attention and looking forward to meeting you !!

Kevin
Non-academic Latin lessons. Multilingual teacher with 9 years of experience. Pronunciation, historical linguistics, conceptual semantics.
Contrary to popular belief, learning Latin is not like learning the phone book by heart. I offer you Latin lessons that are unlike any other. There are two types of courses. Here is an analogy to illustrate their respective approaches: If you take the train back and forth every day and don't have time to wait long at the platform, imagine that you only have two options: 1) Learn the schedules by heart. 2) Note that the train arrives every ten minutes and that a train arrives for example at 7:00 a.m. In school pedagogy, in study notebooks and in ordinary courses, it is the first approach which is adopted - in the courses that I offer you, it is the second because it is more economical and faster. My offer is aimed at both students and adults who want to learn the Latin language or deepen their knowledge without time-consuming detours through the insanities of school methods which do not produce results. Learning is easy but unlearning what has become a bad habit is extremely difficult. All the more important it is to learn the right reflexes as early as possible. With my tailor-made teaching you will accelerate your learning in a positive state of mind. I offer individual or group Latin lessons (2 to 5 people). The methods are based on cognitive sciences and in particular historical linguistics. What will not be the subject of the course: learn lists of verbs; learn lists of nouns with their gender; learn words with their translations; memory card game; doing school exercises; follow the program in a notebook; impose French grammar on the Latin language. What matters to me in particular: motivate my student and give him a learning rhythm; encourage creativity; make friends with language; letters and their sounds strengthen your memory by working on the phonological loop; teach construction plans instead of having people learn sentences by heart; explain how the language works to make my student independent as quickly as possible; breaking preconceived ideas such as the gammatical gender would have a link with the biological gender, the accusative would be a direct complement and the dative an indirect complement, the verbs would be irregular, the declension would be random and therefore to be learned with each verb... ; place practice at the center and articulate grammar around practice. In the context of a first course, you can get a well-founded idea of my pedagogy. I look forward to meeting you.

Sebastian
Fun and Effective Swedish course with Money-Back-Guarantee!
I am a Swedish native speaker and general language enthusiast. Besides Swedish, I speak English, German, Spanish, French, and Italian. Having learned 6 languages myself, I am 100% convinced that I will successfully teach you Swedish(in a fun and relaxed manner)! I have been teaching since 2018 and am currently one of the most-reviewed teachers on this platform. I encourage you to pause here and have a look at my reviews. I am confident that you too will have a similar view after having had some classes with me. On top of teaching here on Apprentus, I have taught offline group classes for the Volksuniversiteit The Hague (A Volksuniversiteit (litt. folk university) is an institute for non-formal adult education in the Netherlands). I also taught for and underwent training with Berlitz, which is one of, if not THE largest language school in the world, operating in over 70 countries and 500+ locations. I am 33 years old, have an honours degree from Leiden University, The Hague, am calm, encouraging, and, most importantly, PATIENT. My main objective in classes is to make the student feel relaxed and at ease. I encourage you to speak without fear of making mistakes. In fact, I celebrate making mistakes. "Why?", you may ask. Well, making mistakes means that you are leaving your comfort zone. You are trying something that you are not already skilled at. You don't choose the easy path! People who never make mistakes are stagnant. Therefore, making mistakes should be CELEBRATED instead of shunned! So, good on you for mispronouncing "eftermiddag (Afternoon)", or using the wrong grammar when making a sentence! Here, let me help you get it right this time! :) Do you already have Swedish knowledge? No problem! Instead of building the basics, we can design classes that meet your personal needs and preferences. We can write essays together, you can hold presentations about topics of your interests or topics that I provide, we can discuss current events, hold debates, you can write news-paper article summaries, or we deep dive into advanced grammar. Whatever it is that you enjoy and need: We can do it together. All my classes combine speaking, listening & grammar exercises in interaction with me. Unless you're a very advanced student, we will work with learning materials created by some of the best publishers for language learning in Sweden. These materials serve as a red thread for our course that introduces new words, grammar, and exercises in a good pace and interesting manner which keeps you engaged and motivated. Furthermore, I show you swedish food, music and places. On top of that, I introduce you to the best technological tools (homepages and applications) to boost your language learning and take it to the next level! Another important factor for me is having a personal connection. Unless you prefer to "stick to business", which is fine as well, we typically start our classes by talking about how the weekend or preceding weekdays have been. I don't see my students as a resource to be extracted, but as people for whom I develop a genuine interest. Over the course of time, we both know what is going on in our respective lives and update each other about small or big life events. Having taught many students for multiple years, I can gladly say that I have made real friends thanks to our classes, some of which I even have met in real life. I am extremely confident that you very soon will have the same success that I have had in learning languages! So what are you waiting for? Get in touch now to book an initial lesson in which we can get to know each other so that I can learn about you, your needs and wishes, which will allow us to design the optimal course for you. See you soon! Ses snart! Sebastian

French courses for students in school and students who would like to improve in the language.
French is one of the most influential languages in the world. Knowing how to speak, read and write it while understanding the significant accuracy of the words used is an asset that unfortunately very few master. My lessons are based on my student's expectations, the areas in which he wants to work will be implemented.
