Mikael has a vast experience as an excecutive from his professional background. He will help you reach your objectives and will tailor the lessons to your needs. He is helping me to be more confident to speak in a professional environment.
Pratique discursive d anglais commercial et courant. Mikael insiste sur l excellence nécessaire à la prononciation de chaque mot. Il adapte le cours à mes besoins ainsi qu’à mes attentes de vocabulaire grâce à diverses coupures de journaux. En résumé, un cours interactif avec un super prof!
English is considered the Lingua Franca in many parts of the World, and being comfortable in its spoken use is a valuable asset for both young and mature individuals. My practical approach in teaching conversational English is based on 20 years as a professional in executive roles in all five continents, and with knowledge in French, Spanish and Swedish to assist with the necessary foundation and translation. Join me for some energetic and fun spoken English classes.

Agnes
INTENSIVE English (CONVERSATIONS) / medical, legal / for exams BEC Higher, BEC Vantage, CFE, CAE, EPC, IELTS, TOEFL, LNAT, TOLES
I have 17 years of teaching experience in New York (at the School of Visual Arts), European Union and Switzerland. I am a native speaker of the English language who grew up in Singapore, South Africa and New York. 598 of my 600 students passed their CFE, CAE, CPE, IELTS, TOEFL, LCCI 1-4, LNAT and TOLES tests by reaching the score they wanted.   I have prepared more than 80 students for job interviews. I corrected their CVs as well as their motivation letters. We simulated job interviews and I corrected their job interviews recorded on Skype or via conference calls. They all found the job of their dreams and this, for the most part, on their first try. All teaching materials - lexicons, articles from the English and American press, podcasts, TED talks, YouTube videos, as well as electronic books dealing with grammar, business vocabulary.

Denis
Advanced private lessons in German, English and law
Teacher with great experience and particularly motivated, I have always advanced my students and brought them successfully to their exams. After completing a full education in Germany and advanced training in Swiss law in Geneva, I want to put my skills at the service of students or students of any level in Geneva.

Linda
English and Spanish presentation coaching for professionals and personal development. Dynamic, provoking, self-challenging and practice.
Effective speaking with an audience should not rely on boring PowerPoint slides. The ability to give a presentation is a much misused skill. Presenters regularly provide what interests themselves rather than their audience and couple this with the popular beliefe that we remember what we see in writing. A fact that is totally untrue. Through dynamic, thought-provoking and self-challenging courses, couples with extensive practice, I will teach you the golden rules needed to organise your presentations, identify, engage with your audience and importantly adapt to your audience. All speaking is a form of selling, whether it is a product, an idea, a project or even yourself to a company. Most people face nervousness and shyness when it comes to speaking in public. Although it could be learned by practice, it is a bad teacher unless it is not coupled with effective feedback. Ask yourself, what do I want my audience to take from my presentation, what should they do with this information? If your audience does not take anything away or cannot do anything with this information, then you might just as well have been storytelling, perhaps well, but you have not given a good presentation. This class is for academics, managers, business people and those interested in improving their presentation skills, body language, and structure of their talk in a simple and effective manner that everyone can remember. My course is also intended for those seeking to improve their spoken language skills in Spanish and English. I am native in Spanish and fluent in English having recently finished my PhD in Humanitarian studies from the University of Manchester, UK. I am a passionate coach with a strong academic background. I discovered my passion for teaching and mentoring others while travelling and working around the world with different NGOs and enterprises. I use an innovative methodology that put the students' strengths at the foreground to overcome shyness and fear when it comes to speaking in public. I welcome people from all genders and ages interested in providing professional and effective presentations either in English and \ or Spanish.

Amélie
Courses in French, Dutch, English, Mathematics, History, International Relations, Law, Science and Geography.
I am a Belgian (flamish) and French student who just completed a master in International Law, at the University of Amsterdam. I did my Bachelors in International Relations at the University of Geneva (magna cum laude) and a 6 months-exchange at UCSB (University California Santa Barbara). I also did my secondary education in an international high school in France, where I specialized in sciences (18/20 for the final scientific baccalaureate). The classes I had there were given out in French, English, Dutch and Spanish. My previous tutoring experience: 2021/2022: I was working at "bijlesthuis", a dutch tutoring institution. My students were mostly adults who were seeking to improve their levels in french, dutch and english. In parallel, I was also giving classes to other students through apprentices. 2021 Through Apprentus and other websites, I helped several younger students (5-15 years old) with improving their skills (notably in maths and french), this was in Bern and Geneva. 2017/2020: I worked for three years in a tutoring institution in Geneva ( called ARA), where I was mainly teaching French, mathematics and English. During this time I also worked for two years in a Private School (Florimont), where I was taking care of different classes of students (11-16 years old). I was responsible for helping out the students with their homework (in various subjects). I can teach in French, Dutch and English. I love teaching and helping students with progressing and learning new skills. I am a flexible, calm and positive person! Looking forward to meeting you! Amelie

I give math lessons for students in primary, cycles or college.
I have a good pedagogy and easy to pass on information in a pleasant atmosphere. My course illustrated with lots of examples and exercises to facilitate understanding and memorization. - Course of the sessions: The sessions begin with a reminder of the notions seen previously then an explanation of the course taught at school then a direct application of the new notions and finally assignment of the homework to be done for the session which will follow. The methods used are effective through experiments with other students.

Tutoring in German and English for all levels
I offer tutoring (help with homework, revision, oral practice ...) in German and English, for children, adolescents and adults of all levels. The approach that I propose is as serious as it is creative, and my learning methods are adapted to the needs and preferences of each one. Whether reading Goethe or discussing movies in English, I will be happy to motivate you or your child to study these languages. English is my mother tongue, and I speak German fluently (among other things thanks to a bilingual high school diploma and a one-year exchange that I did in Munich). I have been offering tutoring in these two languages since 2010.
