Trusted teacher: Here's what I can do for you: - Develop a reading habit (a book a week is not an unreasonable goal); - Teach you how to speed-read so you can read twice, or thrice, as fast without loss in comprehension (speed-reading is really just a fancy name for college-level reading skills, a phenomenon which can be taught and practised without recourse to magical beliefs); - Take you through a tour through the body of Western Classics that Wikipedia defines as a "body of high culture literature, music, philosophy, and works of art ... from Socrates to Wittgenstein in philosophy, and from Homer to James Joyce in literature"; - And finally, be an English conversational partner and personal tutor who does all the usual things to help you enjoy speaking and reading in English (about how English is formally taught, most "dreaded" English tests and exams are really variants of IQ tests that have little to no relations to how a language is learned and acquired).

Christian - Beijing165 CNY
I can help you reach fluency and native-level English and Spanish through a comprehensive approach based on linguistic theory. We will learn how to study without textbooks, instead learning usable English through the use of media, art, literature, and your own interests! To learn a language, you must be interested in the material we will cover, so the lesson planning will revolve around your hobbies and passions, and you will learn from slang to academic language skills. If you enjoy politics, philosophy, or literature, I am the teacher for you. My kids in Yangshuo loved my energy, and I can promise you that you will enjoy a teacher that is always joyous to teach, and that can help you improve rapidly.

Sue English - Beijing403 CNY
Trusted teacher: Hello, are you looking for an English teacher, qualified from the UK? Do you wish to improve your pronunciation, your grammar and get ready for your job/school? The English lessons here are especially designed to meet your needs. Do you wish to have your work corrected, to work on literature/ business subjects/ linguistics or prepare yourself for an exam? Don’t wait and send me a message. The teacher can prepare you as well for specific examinations like IETLS or specific English programs (A-Levels, GCSE…). Why learning English? English is a worldwide language and you will need to have solid basis in English for your job or for leisure when travelling. Did you know? Knowing an extra language is extremely appreciated by recruiters because not only you are familiar with a foreign language but also you will be open-minded, knowing various cultures. 😊 You have the possibility to have the lessons via Skype (the majority of my students prefer having their lessons online, technology is fun!). If you have further inquiries, don’t hesitate to let me know, it will be a pleasure to help you and present you to your teacher.
