I am a native English speaker (from London), offering language classes tailored to your needs. I am TEFL-certified, and have lots of experience teaching both adults and young learners at all levels.

I will always adapt my classes so that you can make progress in the most efficient way possible.

I also have a PhD in biology and loads of experience writing and editing academic-style English. If you need help with your undergraduate, Masters, or PhD thesis, don't hesitate to get in touch.

About Me

I am passionate about helping others to improve their English. Originally from London, I'm a formally trained teacher of English as a foreign language (TEFL), and I've spent time abroad teaching students of all abilities.
In parallel, I work as a biology researcher, and recently completed a PhD at the University of Lausanne.
My language classes are based on flexibility - each student has strengths and weaknesses. The key to learning fast is to quickly identify these and to work hard on the tricky parts! This may require grammar exercises, writing emails, full-speed conversation, or reading aloud to perfect pronunciation. We'll choose the material together.

I love playing music and going to concerts, spending time in the mountains hiking, rock climbing and snowboarding, and I enjoy discussing all kinds of topics from art to politics to cooking to movies.

English lesson ! College, Gymnasium, Learning!
Graduated from a Masters in Law from the University of Lausanne, I love teaching German and I give myself 100% to transmit the grammar rules as clearly as possible.

Alicia
ENGLISH LESSONS, all levels (beginner to university), 5 years teaching experience
I am a qualified teacher from England, I have a BA and MA in Linguistics (English). I am currently making research on the best methods for teaching a second language (such as English) to adults and children. I have been teaching children and adults for 5 years, from beginner to university level. The best way to improve in a new language is to be taught by a qualified English speaker. :-) I adapt my lessons to the level and needs of the student. We can work on grammar, reading, speaking and listening. I usually use the news in English to encourage the student to express themselves, correct pronunciation while reading and it is an excellent way for the student to acquire new expressions/vocabulary. I also give exercises based on grammar and make sure to apply what we have learned in real life context. If you wish, we can also work on specific topics such as business. I am also qualified for the IELTS/TOEFL, A-LEVELS or the correction of written work. I can deliver the lessons online if required. Don't hesitate to contact me for further information. I'm looking forward to meeting you. :-)

Natacha
Private lessons in languages and methodology of work
Passionate about languages, I am convinced that learning a foreign language, or even working more thoroughly in one's mother tongue, is a great wealth in terms of openness and self-awareness. It is also a very valuable tool for learning how to organize your thoughts and structure your ideas; what we all need in our daily lives. Holder of a Master in Sociology of Communication and Media and Journalism (University of Friborg) and a Master of Arts (University of Lausanne), I offer private courses entirely based on the needs and expectations of the person. The goal is that the use and learning of the language brings something concrete, especially in terms of work methodology. I teach French (school or foreign language) and English at all levels and to people of all ages.

(JW Goethe) I like to share my passion by giving children the opportunity to learn the foreign language from the discovery of the country's culture through games, videos, songs, interactive books, what else? We will start a journey together! And for those who have to study or revise literature, grammar, lexicon or improve oral communication I will also be happy to provide my support !! Contact me and we will discover together what is hidden behind a language.

Manuel
Private Spanish Lessons in native conversations for adults and children (English/Spanish)
Hi. I’m Manuel from the capital of Spain, Madrid. Currently I’m living in Liechtenstein finishing my Architecture Master. When I was living in my country I never before could imagine how people loves the Spanish language. As a foreign here I realized that people from Switzerland considered the Spanish language as the second most important in the list after English. I just wanna enjoy with you sharing my Knowledge, and you could learn the native expressions (different than the book learning technic). Have a nice day ein Gruß
