English for Professionals and Students: Friendly, Internationally Experienced Teacher From the USA.

Since 2018 I've been teaching and tutoring English to students across the world. I've taught in the private sector, in schools, and now privately online. Many of my students work for international companies or have relocated (or plan to relocate) for work or study and have an immediate need to improve their English. Their goals often include things like better communication for business, making social connections, or simply making day-to-day life in a new country easier.

If this describes you, I can help! I've lived internationally for much of my adult life, and I completely understand all of the wonderful experiences, as well as the challenges, that come with communicating in an international setting.

In my lessons, I help clients to learn, retain, and USE new information. When we practice grammar structures, we do it in contexts that are useful. When we learn new vocabulary, we practice by talking about interesting and memorable topics. Overall, my lessons are low-stress and conversational yet always focused on results.

If your first language isn't English, it can be difficult to express your "true self" in the language, but it gets much easier with practice and persistence! If you are an advanced level student, we'll also work on idiomatic language and cultural references. This helps boost your conversational skills and makes understanding English speakers in general a whole lot easier.

Whatever your English language goals are, send me a message, and I'll be happy to assist. We'll have a friendly chat about how I can best help you, and I'll be happy to answer any questions you may have.

About Me

Hi, I'm Margie! I've been a certified ESOL teacher and tutor since 2018. Before deciding to work independently online, I taught in both traditional school settings and the private sector.
I teach English for individuals living/working in international environments where English is required, and exam preparation (TOEFL, IELTS). I have a friendly, relaxed style in my lessons, where learners can feel comfortable speaking and asking questions.
My professional interests include etymology, medical English and language acquisition theory. Outside of work I love learning new creative hobbies and listening to music.
Like a lot of English tutors, I love to travel. I've lived in several countries and am always planning my next destination for short and long term stays.

Education

My formal qualifications include a TEFL and a BA in Political Science. I hold certificates in IELTS and TOEFL preparation and am currently working on attaining OET preparation credentials.

Experience / Qualifications

I've worked as an English teacher and tutor since 2018 and genuinely enjoy helping people reach their goals with the language.
Standardized tests such as the TOEFL and IELTS put a lot of pressure on candidates, but I have good news! With strong foundational skills and smart test taking strategies, you can boost your score (and your confidence!) The way I approach TOEFL/IELTS preparation lessons depends on: -How much time you can commit to preparation before taking the exam -Which section or sections give you the most difficulty -Your current level and your desired score range -Your motivation for taking the test After a short assessment, we'll practice (some relaxed, some timed) using both short and long versions of past exam questions. I'll teach you to recognize and use the skill sets that apply to each section and learn how they intersect. This way, you'll gain a clearer understanding of how the exam works, lower your test anxiety, and feel more confident on your exam day. I've been helping students and professionals make these exams more manageable since 2019. My lessons are highly personalized and include written feedback and reference material for you to review and study in and out of class.

Swedish course for adults and teens! (All skill levels)
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)! Therefore, I offer a money-back guarantee: Should you not be satisfied with the results of a course with me, I will reimburse you. 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 "Nachmittag (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 meeting 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

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!

Swedish, Danish and English courses from beginner to business.
I have worked fulltime, for the past 15 years, as a language teacher and translator. I was born in Sweden, to Danish parents and live with an Englishman. I teach said three languages to both private and commercial clients, placing great emphasis on client needs and abilities. Cultural knowledge is also very important to the understanding of any language and is therefore included in all courses. The dreaded grammar is the fundamental building block to a language, but I try to make it as fun as possible.......as well as the homework and self-study.

Do you wish to be a better communicator with your international colleagues and peers? Do you dread that presentation or conference that you have been asked to head?

You will follow and be guided through professional lesson plans that follow a structure of vocabulary building, reading (out loud), comprehension and discussion. Occasionally they may come with an additional audio or video file to enhance your listening skills. Conversation - both business and general, is a key focus focus, so making full answers is very much encouraged. We always share a two-way conversation or a few conversations, stating our views and opinions. I correct both verbally and within the Skype chat panel so that you can see as well as hear the correction. I also want you to ask as many questions as necessary about the lesson as a whole or about the exercises posed. Communication is very important for without it I cannot properly help you.
