Certified English Teacher (all ages and levels welcome), Native Speaker

Hello, my name is Virginia and I am a TEFL certified English Second Language teacher. All ages and levels are completely welcome in my classes. The latest educational research shows that communicative learning (lessons 100% in target language) is the most effective way to learn a second or foreign language. Therefore, our classes will be completely in English to help you learn better, faster, and become a more confident English user. I offer highly personalized lessons to all of my students. Thus, the lessons are student-led—your interests, needs, and goals will help determine the content and style of our lessons. You may request to focus on a specific skill (e.g. grammar, speaking, reading/writing, content specific vocabulary, etc.) or we can focus on every skill. Whether you simply need a native speaker to check your work, get some conversation practice, improve your communication skills, or even start learning English from the very beginning, I am happy to help.

Learn and get help with English language speaking and writing, Biology, Neuroscience and Psychology.
As a scientist and researcher, I have experience teaching various subjects in science to high-school and university students. I have also worked as an English language tutor for over 5 years and love being able to help people to better use the language (whether for communication or for writing for school and work). Being able to be comfortable with the English language is a huge advantage not only for everyday communication but also to be able to communicate professionally. I especially specialize in the use of the English language for presentation and writing in the sciences and social sciences. I adapt my classes to each of my students - depending on their needs and goals. So whether you need help with conversational English or with your essays, scientific articles, theses, or dissertations - I can provide a specialized plan for you, and will do so taking into your field of study. Additionally, I can help you proofread and edit any writing you have. I am also a neuroscientist by training and can provide classes and help with your courses in Psychology, Biology, or Neuroscience. Additionally, I also tutor for Mathematics, Physics, and Engineering Sciences for high school and university students (in both English and French). My teaching philosophy for these is still the same- I adapt and prepare every class to each individual student's goals and needs.

English is the first spoken language in the world. The same ability to communicate in this language is essential in most jobs. In this class, the main goal is to improve your speaking skills in English and to strengthen your hearing and understanding of different accents. Also, after each class, you should write a summary of the activity of the previous session, which will improve your writing skills as well as the topics discussed. The level of the class will be in accordance with your English level and my goal in this class is to make you interested in English. The whole class will be in English.

Quentin
cours d'Anglais personnels/groupe - Toulouse centre
Je suis étudiant en illustration. Titulaire du Cambridge English B2, j'adore cette langue. Enseigner de manière pédagogique faisant également partie de mes passions, je propose de mon temps pour partager ces connaissances et aider sur l'apprentissage de cette langue aux facettes multiples, aujourd'hui clé indispensable à l'ouverture au monde extérieur, aussi bien sur le plan réel que sur le plan personnel. Je m'engage à être présent aux rendez-vous et à m'adapter au besoin à toute éventuelle demande. J'ai pour habitude d'utiliser des supports variés pour entraîner mes élèves, il n'est donc pas impossible que j'aie recours à des modules divers tels que photos, quiz, vidéos... Je me dois cependant de vous informer que je ne suis qu'une aide à l'ascension de cet escalier, et sans un travail personnel et régulier, même infime, l'apprenant peut retomber très vite les marches qu'il aura eu conquises...

English courses for children and adolescents
I propose to give English lessons especially for children, college and high school students. Indeed, I easily manage to transmit knowledge to children and adolescents because I use fun methods to make the course as enjoyable as possible. In addition, I focus my lessons on conversations, I prefer to resort to exchanges because I believe that it is more formative; English is a spoken language!
