    English: writing, grammar, speaking, broadcast coaching

    I specialize in tutoring writing for publication, broadcasting and journals. My goal is to polish students work so it is ready for publication or submission for competitions. I can proofread ongoing material, or walk a student through the process of creating stories for all forms of media.
    I also read French and a bit of German, so I know the difficulty of writing in English if it is not your first language.

    About Me

    English is my first langauge, and while it was easy for me, I watched other American children struggle with it. There is more than repetition here. It is a language which borrows from several other European languages which allows for creativity and scientific accuracy.
    I proofread papers for European journalists, knowing where the grammar is going to trip them up. If you struggle to find the wording in your academic papers, I can certainly help you.

    Education

    Bachelor of Arts/ Journalism, minor in existential phenomenological psychology, additional study music. I studied other languages beyond French: a little German, Italian and Polish.

    Experience / Qualifications

    40 years writing, producing and hosting television news.
    Extensive experience with audio (radio), print (newspapers) and online.

    Learn Spoken English for Communication and Public Speaking
    These sessions are focused on English for people who encounter challenges in speaking and communicating and lack the techniques that are used for that purpose. We would develop situational vocabulary, corresponding verbs and adverbs that help transmit more precision when speaking. Our mission would be to see where you currently are in the language, strengthen any weak points and create awareness about points that need extra attention. These classes tend to take place in a more relaxed yet fun and stimulating environment. I constantly provide feedback to students about their progress and assign homework to ameliorate the practical and theoretical aspects of the English. This class is all about making English accessible and easy to learn to all through a variety of social and interactive stimulus.. You may request a full refund and get your money after the first class if you think that this class does not suit you.

    REVIEW ESO AND BACHILLERATO (SOCIAL AND HUMANITIES). ENGLISH
    BACHELOR REVIEW classes (Social, Humanities), English, Catalan, Philosophy, Literature, History ... AND THAT. More than 20 years giving individual and small group classes in English, Spanish and Catalan. Academies and online. My name is Xavier. I was born in Barcelona ... a long time ago. I grow up in this town, but now I live a bit far from here. I studied at the University of Barcelona and in Huddersfield (near Shefield, Halifax, Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool, ... not very far from York: quite nice places and better people), and I've been teaching Catalan, Spanish, Philosofy , History and English for a long time ... since I was 16. What happened? Very short, I promise: I was walking down the street two years ago, from just opposite this private school, and I thought myself: well, you might enter this place and see. I like English language very much ... and the UK, ... but I don't have a poster of the Queen on my bedroom's wall. It was a sort of a blind date. And there she was: her smile, her diligence, effectiveness. Eva listened to me. And after two weeks she was texting me for a class. "Please, Xavier, can you cover for some classes?" And here I am. (That was two years and a half ago, at the Academy English Studio where I have been an English teacher for more than two years, untill 13th March, when the lady in charge said literally that she would pass my 59 students to another teacher because I had no Internet at home, as I had recently moved to another town and had not had time to set the Internet, and nobody could have possibly known about that horrible and destructive confinement). More than 20 years teaching and learning with my students. Online classes. Spanish and Catalan teacher, too.

    English: pronunciation (British or American) or conversation. NO grammar lessons.
    I have facilitated workshops and given classes throughout my career all over the world. English pronunciation is essential these days because English is spoken everywhere and all the time. I followed specialized training such as the verb tonal method, Feldenkrais or mental coaching. We are therefore going to work in a slightly different way by combining articulatory techniques, movement, rhythm, intonation, warming up of the jaw and tongue, stretching of the neck, neck and shoulders to arrive to very fast results.

    Yolanda
    EFL/ESL Online English Language Tutor (Individuals)
    My lessons are student-centred, engaging, and flexible! Lessons are continuously adapted to suit the individual; every lesson is structured based on the needs of the student. The focus of lessons will initially be based on a student needs assessment carried out at the start of your course, and subsequent lessons will be adapted based on your progress throughout the duration of a specific course. Learning areas identified may include: * Refining your pronunciation * Practicing everyday language and conversational skills * Exam preparation, focusing on specific grammar and/or vocabulary * Reading comprehension and practice * Writing correction and practice * CV and Cover letter drafting * Job interview preparation Lessons are conducted almost entirely in English. This has shown to be the most effective way for students to learn a foreign or second language! It is recommended that you book an initial course of at least 20 hours.

    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.

    Christina Yen-Chun,
    Chinese Mandarin, 8 years of experience, Daily Chinese, patient, 1 by 1
    Chinese is both deep and interesting. Its grammar is simple, but the reading and writing are full of "surprises". I am Taiwanese and very happy to share and teach my native language. I live in Delémont, Switzerland. In Taiwan, I taught Chinese to foreigners; i have been in international business for almost 20 years and have been exposed to cultures from over 50 different countries. Everyone is always full of freshness and curiosity for Chinese ... Now I will share with you the pleasure and the harvest of learning Chinese. My course is mainly oral, and at the end I hope to be able to speak to you in Chinese. The goal is obviously to be able to express oneself. I personalize all my documents so that the level corresponds to everyone's interests. My students are regardless of their age. (They are teenagers, adults and even retirees) I also created a "WhatsApp" group to promote learning on a daily basis because it is important to continue having fun. I am really passionate about my job and would love to teach you my native language.

    Hi future students, My name is Nayeli and I am from Mexico City. My mother tongue is Spanish but I have experience giving English classes to teenagers and kids. I can help you with learning either of these useful and beautiful languages. I think learning a new language can be exciting and difficult at the same time. For this reason, I want to focus on the specific goals of each student to learn a new language to help them learn in the best way that suits every individual. Learning something new should always be fun and that is why my classes will be dynamic, with a lot of exercises to practice, movies, songs and games! Don´t hesitate to contact me for any doubts!

    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.
