    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.

    Qualifications:
    TEFL Certified from the renowned International TEFL Academy
    Bachelor's of Arts (licence) in English and Technical Theatre from St. Mary's College of California

    Private lessons and tutoring in French, English and Spanish
    Graduated from a Masters in Comparative Literature and a Masters in Literary Translation, currently a freelance translator, I offer tutoring courses for middle and high school students in French. I have already accompanied several students in their preparation for the French bac, who have all made good progress. With my students, I insist on acquiring a good methodology to succeed, and put special emphasis on self-confidence: text commentary and essay should not be scary exercises! I work with the texts studied in class and adapt to the student's needs: revisions, feedback on corrected homework, preparation for oral exams, writing exercises ... I can also help students learn English and Spanish, which are my working languages. We look forward to meeting you, and taking part of the literary journey together, Lucia

    Michaël
    Learn in a simple and effective way: Spanish - English - Portuguese
    Good morning! Buenas dias! Delighted Michaël, teacher on the internet for more than two years. I would like to offer you a fun interaction that complements the school method. I have traveled around the globe which has led me to speak several languages and also to work in particular in England, Australia, Spain or the Dominican Republic. Basically I start the lessons by talking with my students about a bit of everything (in order to enrich the vocabulary). Depending on the level I adapt with files that are sent during the course. I also use the Callan method which works on repetition in order to properly assimilate useful words and phrases. All in a positive way :) Tell me your availability if you're interested for a first lesson. At worst it will have made you practice, at best you improve! Regards

    Unique experience of learning foreign languages: English for French speakers & French for foreigners.
    Lingua Love takes you on a journey into your world of language learning. You can learn English, French and Serbian with your NeuroLanguage Coach. Certified by Efficient Language Coaching & Accredited by International Coaching Federation. Learning process : Thanks to the discoveries of Neuroscience, we know better today how the brain learns, what issues are possible and what needs to be encouraged to find the type of learning specific to each learner that they will like. Thus, we adapt this “brain-friendly” approach to everyone, which activates an anti-stress learning environment and which greatly promotes motivation. As each person is unique, each work session reflects this. With Coaching tools, we now know how to better introduce content, initiate reflection, encourage and value the efforts that the person shows in their learning. It is a new communication supported by a partnership, active listening and the functioning of the learner that the educator promotes in coaching mode in a work environment. As certified coaches, we are required to respect the codes of ethics. Indeed, all personal elements discussed during our sessions remain confidential. This approach to coaching also helps us envision our itinerary: the starting point, the stages and the arrival at the desired destination. Neurolanguage Coaching is a truly tailor-made journey into the world of languages and languages. We have complete freedom to target only the areas and concepts which interest the learner and which will be necessary, useful and interesting for them in their own practice of the language. In this way, we further optimize the acquisition of new knowledge according to the learner and their own approach and use. Indeed, the learner ends up discovering his way of doing things and moving forward.

    Private English lessons for students (primary, middle, high school) and adults
    Hello all, I am Juliette, Doctor in Health Biology and holder of a Master's degree in international cooperation. Passionate about foreign languages and intercultural exchanges, I am currently learning 2 languages on my own: Spanish and Russian. After having taken LV1 English in middle school and high school (18/20 at the baccalaureate), I continued to learn English through my travels (Europe, India) and my research activity (I carried out a thesis in biology). I have written scientific articles in English, and I speak English on a daily basis with my foreign partner. I am level B2/C1: I got 925/990 on the TOEIC in 2021. Regarding the courses I offer: I favor dialogue, listening and the acquisition of vocabulary in learning a language, but I can also work specifically on grammatical or conjugation points, particularly if there are expectations linked to school programs. Whatever the level of English targeted and the possible blocking points, I think that regular listening and practice are a sure way to anchor the good automatisms of the language in the long term. By hearing certain turns of phrase, certain grammatical notions will end up coming spontaneously to your mind when you write and express yourself. What I propose, depending on your level and your requirements (exams, school programs, etc.): - define together a program likely to meet your expectations - deliver the course in English (even if it means speaking slowly, translating certain words, and mixing English with French at the beginning). Abroad, language courses are taught in the language, and this quickly contributes to progress :) - vary the learning supports and angles: written, oral and listening. Ideally, a session will consist of all 3. - Establish with you, depending on your availability, a program to do independently during the week (watch a short video on Monday, listen to a podcast on Wednesday, read the news on Saturday, etc.) - gradually support you, if you wish, towards autonomy in learning this language. Looking forward to meeting you and speaking English with you! Juliette

    Language courses at school level and for adults.
    I am an Italian teacher (my mother tongue) in a French high school and college. I hold a Master's degree with honors in Foreign Languages and Literatures (English and French) from the University of Bologna. I also studied Spanish for five years and lived and worked in Spain for two years, reaching C2 level. I have experience as a teacher of English for high school students, Spanish for migrants and as an educator in educational projects for children and adolescents with special needs. During these experiences, I was able to develop and perfect a method that was both didactic and educational, based on active listening to needs, trust and cooperation. When it comes to the material, I try to make it as dynamic and creative as possible, aware of the fact that language learning is more effective if placed in situational contexts and based on personal inclinations.
