Reviews (7)

My daughter was very pleased with the first session.The homework is spot-on to consolidate the review lesson she just had.
He is a very nice teacher ❤️
My son needs help with science in school. I contacted Benson and he responded very quickly and we scheduled a lesson. My son and I were very satisfied because the teacher explained the subject very simply and clearly - it was just what we were looking for! We will continue! I recommend him!
He helped me with my end of year Physics exam in just two 2-hour lessons. For once I felt confident in an exam and my understanding of Physics made me like the subject more. He’s a really great tutor.
I have a very positive impression on the first day of my child's tutorials. He seems to have a dominion over the subjects he taught: IGCSE Math, Physics and chemistry. We never doubted of changing the teacher, but already agreed to continue a regular reinforcement classes with him until summer at least. My child has understood better the selected topics discussed he missed to cope in school. Kudos to Mr. Benson. I'm grateful and privileged to have chosen him for my child's tutor.

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.

Spanish, easy and fanny for you, for us! Learn from fun and enthusiasm!
Spanish teacher for foreigners from all over the world. I am also an English teacher, but this is in another ad ... (warning to English speakers: it is always better to have a common language as a vehicle for communication to face the challenge of a third language). Spanish, easy and fanny for you, for us! Learn from fun and enthusiasm

English Language - Writing, Speaking, Listening Comprehension
Can learning English be fun, insightful, productive and affordable at the same time? I believe so! Whatever your background or profession, deciding to learn a foreign language is a great way to add another dimension to your life and make your mind work in a new way. You become a (slightly) different person, since along with a new language, one learns to look at the world in a slightly different way. This is why my approach to teaching English is not only aimed at laying or strengthening the foundational knowledge - grammar, speaking, writing and listening skills, but also at introducing students to the culture of the English-speaking population. We will find out what English speakers find funny, what drives them to tears, what makes them feel proud and what they get embarrassed about. Open to students of all levels, my course usually is taught online, using a variety of visual aids and a wide range of material, from textbooks to YouTube videos. In teaching advanced learners, I often refer to pieces of literature such as novels and poems, since they easily spark discussions, which in turn improves the students' grasp and feel of the language. In doing so, I take students beyond ordinary textbooks and grammar books, since they are no more than guides to learning, not absolute authorities, and because to me language is a living, constantly evolving matter, which you must submerge yourself into in order to understand. In addition to my unorthodox approach, what sets me apart is a collection of unique, language-related experiences, which translate into a good ability to understand nuances of the English language. A native Russian speaker, I have lived in the UK for over 5 years, went to a Scottish boarding school and have even completed a university degree in English. Thanks to my linguistic and cultural competency, I will make sure that you are never lost in translation! Are you interested? Then contact me today!

Repetitive language courses, English and German for any age and level
I offer repetitive English and German lessons, according to your school program or simply by wanting to develop in these languages.

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.
