English and Test Prep Tutoring (college admission or English exams)

I am a licensed, native-speaking English teacher from the USA. I have taught both in my home country and in many countries abroad, instructing native speakers as well as second language learners. I have a teaching certification as well as experience teaching both Math and Science in addition to English.
I have particular expertise with test preparation like the GRE, CAE, GMAT, CPE, TOEFL, and TOEIC, just to name a few. I recently had a student score 8 on IELTS and another score 1480 on the SAT. I have had students get accepted into prestigious institutions like Rotterdam School of Management, Purdue University, and Brooklyn School of Science and Technology.
I have also been teaching grammar and conversational English for many years now. I like to learn about my students' interests and hobbies, then bring in interesting material to work with
Though I care a lot about the success of my students, I also care greatly that they are enjoying my class. Learning useful skills and having fun are my top priorities :)

Extra information

We can design the course based around your needs. If you want to work from a textbook, use online resources, or simply have a less structured conversational class, we can be flexible. Whatever you want to study, we can make it work!

About Me

I am an American educator who has been teaching 5+ years. Although I am primarily an English teacher, I have actually taught a wide range of subjects, from Theatre to Math to Science to Music. I have taught in New York, California, DC, Taipei, Prague, and online.

When I'm not teaching I really enjoy the outdoors and the arts. I'm an avid hiker, backpacker, camper, and rock climber. One of my previous jobs was actually as an outdoors guide! I also love playing music and can play 5 instruments (though none too well). I enjoy theatre and performance too, having been an actor in the US.

I care a lot about the success of my students but I also care greatly that they are enjoying my class. Learning useful skills and having fun are my top priorities :)

Your goal can be to: • Go to university • Pass an exam • Find a job • Improve a skill • Maintain your language level With so many options, it is important to learn what is relevant for you. That is why I teach through Personal Learning, a student centered method of instruction. This means YOU get to choose the direction and curriculum of the course. I teach in person throughout Prague and online. Through my experiences, I became passionate about teaching. • As a teen, I was tutoring English, French and Mathematics to my family members. • In 2017, I volunteered to teach over 100 hours of marine biology to kids and teenagers in the Philippines. • From 2017 to 2019 I worked as a mining engineer and intern trainer. • Now, I completed my TEFL certification with excellent feedback from my mentors and a job offer. • I currently work with a reputable language school and give private tuition.

High School Math, Spanish, English, Test Prep (SAT, TOEFL, FCE)
Do you want to be able to speak like a character from your favorite Netflix show? Do you want to be able to clearly present your brilliant ideas in classes or meetings, or fluently discuss your children's grades at school? Or maybe, you want to prepare for important exams like TOEFL and the SAT? Well, I am here for anything you want! As a multi-linguist - having learned 6 languages - I do know how to easily learn and teach languages, so the most important material you need to bring to class is enthusiasm :) Tailored lessons for your very own needs - General communication lessons can be informal and engaging with personal and exciting stories from me AND you! If you'd like to practice for interviews, presentations or business conferences, let me know the topics in advance so I can research and prepare for them and conduct formal conversation sessions. In case you want to prepare for an exam, I can recommend and purchase the necessary books or materials. I went to an International school where I have acquired high grades in IGCSE and IB mathematics, so if you are struggling with math, I can help you get an A+ or a 7 in those courses or in general mathematics. I also have been learning Spanish for over 6 years with a DELE certificate at Nivel B2, a level that allows me to attend university lectures in Spanish and I am able to understand the majority. If you would like to learn Spanish or if it is your second language at school, I am here for you.

Luka
Teaching all school levels of Math, Biology and English
I'm a Math&bBology&English tutor for school students of all ages. My classes consist of only one student because every student needs a different approach. I personally believe that the best way to teach someone is to understand how his/her mind works and after that find the most effective and convenient method for the individual. My goal is to create a friendly and comfortable environment where you feel free to be yourself. I can definitely say that teaching is one of my hobbies and I do this with pleasure, once this wise man told me "we never stop learning, even when we get older" and I believe him. I might be the teacher in this situation but u have to always be open to new experiences. So if you think you are motivated enough to do your best then I will be more than happy to give my best to you! And if you aren't motivated enough, then we will find a way to bring that spark back to you. If you have any questions feel free to text me, will try my best to reply to you asap. Remember, its all about the journey not the destination.

Martin Menendez
ENGLISH AND SPANISH LESSONS: from beginner to proficiency level. Training for official exams, conversation tutor, practice exercises...
Hi! I am Martin Menendez, a bachelor student who is looking to teach either Spanish (my native language) or English (I'm bilingual: certified C2 English level) here in Prague, where I will be spending my year. I have experience teaching both languages, which I have been teaching for the last two years, and I offer lessons for any level! As a method, I dedicate the first lesson to more or less see the level at which the student is and therefore start developing a plan for future classes, what the student wants and needs and what areas we will spend more time focusing on. I do assign homework each week :) However, most important is having a friendly, close and personal environment where you see me as an equal and where you can ask anything you want. I also want to learn from you and this city too! I think communication is key and that is why I am available to message anytime any day. Flexibility is one of my assets since I am available from Wednesday to Sunday. Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions if you are interested!

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.

French teacher - Passing the DELF or DALF (French diploma) - Private preparation sessions | [IN LINE]
I am Fawzi, a French language teacher. I have been giving private lessons online since 2012. I offer specific sessions to meet your needs and objectives to pass your DELF (Diploma in French Language Studies) or DALF (Advanced Diploma in French Language), including the TCF (French Knowledge Test). I accompany many interested parties of different nationalities thanks to online courses since 2012; for me, helping enthusiasts to practice the French language is a very good experience because I understand that success is a key objective in the life of ambitious people. I speak Arabic, French, Spanish, a little English and a little Turkish. I explain my lessons in French, Arabic or Spanish, depending on your choice. And at the end of each session, I give lessons with exercises to do as homework to examine your shortcomings and monitor your progress. -------------------------------------- Here are some things to know about the DELF and DALF: The DELF (Diploma of Studies in French Language) and the DALF (Advanced Diploma in French Language) are two official and quality diplomas. They are harmonized on the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. They include the following six levels, in ascending order: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2. These two diplomas are suitable for all ages and all audiences. In addition, the DELF B2, and increasingly the DALF C1, allow students to enter French, European or French-speaking universities, and certain Grandes Ecoles. -------------------------------------- Will you have DELF or DALF exams to pass? Do you need to follow specific sessions with me to improve your level? Don't hesitate to book your sessions so that we can start the preparation. I am available !

Merhaba 👋🏻 Hello, I'm Cemile. As a native Turkish speaker, I would be glad to help you to learn Turkish, be it from scratch or to help you improve. I give Turkish lessons to expats, students or Turkish lovers for several years. I love to make my students speak, since I strongly believe that practice is the key to learn a language and to improve your knowledge.

We'll go through the grammar, vocab, and pronunciation. If you're intermediate, we'll also do some lessons about reading comprehension. We'll put both the grammar and vocab in practice. I am looking forward to meeting you and helping you with whatever language goals you have! 📲 Feel free to contact me for questions and classes. مرحبا 👋🏻 أنا جميلة و لغتي الأم التركية. بإمكاني تعليم اللغة التركية للناطقين باللغة العربية أوالانجليزية لدي خبرة في تعليم اللغة التركية لعدة سنوات، طلابي من جنسيات و أعمار مختلفة في دروسنا سوف يتم التركيز على أساسيات اللغة من القواعد والمفردات والأهم طبعاً المحادثة إذا كانت لديك أية أسئلة أو استفسارات، فضلًا لا تتردد في التواصل معي
