She is an excellent teacher.
Our first lesson was very good and interesting.
I am an experienced proof reader of English texts and can help you to present your writing in the best possible light. I have worked in a professional capacity as a copywriter and proof reader for a top UK University Marketing department for numerous years and am also a qualified librarian, giving me an acute eye for precision and detail. I have since worked on commissions for proofreading academic articles, essays, manuscripts, websites and miscellaneous texts.

LEARN TURKISH FROM NATIVE SPEAKER, For school education or social purposes
This turkish classes can be education, cultural or social purposes. As a native speaking person, i can give the classes in english language. I focus on using a understable english so it would be easy for the student to understand better. The concept of the lessons will be shaped according to exactly what you need or want. I have been studying foreign languages in high school and at university after that. I started with english and i am advanced level on this. I have A2 level on French language as well. I have various ways of teaching languages in the most suitable ways to every individual. Because i believe every one has their unique way of learnign things.

Sebastian
Swedish course for adults, students or kids! (All skill levels)
Hej och välkommen! Jag heter Sebastian och jag är 31 år gammal. I currently work as a Swedish teacher at the Volksuniversiteit The Hague and I love every minute I can spend with my students. A Volksuniversiteit (litt. folk university) is an institute for non-formal adult education in the Netherlands. I am a Swedish native speaker and general language enthusiast. Besides Swedish I speak English, German, Spanish, French and Italian. Having learned multiple languages myself I am sure that I can successfully teach you Swedish in a fun and relaxed manner. My teaching focus lies on speaking the language as much as possible. Immersion is key to language learning. Think of small children. They are language geniuses. Why? Because they speak as soon as their brains permit them to speak, without worrying about making mistakes. Therefore, it is paramount to start using the newly learned words immediately in order to prime our brains to get comfortable with the new language. Do you already have Swedish knowledge? No problem! Instead of building the basics we can design classes that meet your personal needs and preferences. My classes combine speaking, listening & grammar exercises in interaction with me. 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! I am extremely confident that you very soon will have the same success that I have had in learning languages! My past and current students would testify to that. I look forward to hearing from you! Jag ser fram emot att höra ifrån dig! Greetings, Hälsningar, Sebastian

English, French and geo-history tutoring for high school and college
Languages are sometimes scary looking and I have experienced that. With my more modern view of teaching, I will help you improve in these subjects with a method far removed from the traditional school method. I can help the youngest to better understand their lessons and prepare for exams. And I can allow adults to improve and teach them to become autonomous in their learning. My goal is to make learning more fun and enjoyable for everyone. Languages are sometimes scary and I have experienced that.

Abdessamad
Darija(Moroccan Arabic), Arabic(MSA), Tamazight(Berber) and English for foreigners.
Hello everyone! My name is Abdessamad. I’m 25 years old and I come from Morocco. I was born in a trilingual family that can speak fluently Arabic (MSA), Tamazight (Berber) and Darija (Moroccan Arabic). I have a diploma in Entertainment and currently I’m studying sociolinguistics at the university of Ibn Zohr, in Agadir. Extremely patient and suitable for beginners, children and adults. I love teaching, as well as learning of course languages (currently, French and German) but not only. I like to talk about philosophy, literature, psychology sports, cooking and gastronomy, animals, outdoors activities and travels. I am a professional teacher but I was giving after school language courses to students of all grades from primary school to high school, at their place in Agadir and other cities around as a freelancer. I also have a great experience in teaching non-native speakers since my wife is French and I taught her Arabic from scratch. Besides that, I have lots of students from different spots of the world, some of them that I can call now friends. During the summer break, I’ve used to do entertainments in the hotels, therefore I had the chance to meet lots of people coming from different countries. So as an entertainer and a sociolinguist student who’s interested in learning other languages and about deferent cultures, I was proposing to give the tourists Arabic, Darija, and Tamazight lessons. I like trying new things with each student to see what works best for them. Engaging them in topics that they like to talk about, recommending movies, series, songs, book or anything that would make them more connected to the culture. With that being said, we all know that learning is fun. Or at least, it shouldn’t be so hard to learn and have fun. So, as an entertainer and a sociolinguistics student, I assure you that the experience is going to be fun, you will stay curious and keep coming back for more.

Hi everyone! At the start of each class I will be seeing where we are at, and how we are feeling, and I will be asking for any improvements to make sure you’re satisfied.

Understanding that you have school work to be doing, it is not required to do it, however, if not completed I will test you in the next class to make sure you understand and if not we will go over it ! For students who are younger - parents are always welcome to sit down with you! Seeing the pace of every student I will then make my way accordingly through questions and examples for you !
