Learning English is easy! Trust yourself -lessons of writing, reading and oral expression for all levels
Bonjour je m'appelle Audrey ! (English version bellow) Je suis étudiante en relations internationales et en langues étrangères chinois à l'INALCO. De par mes études et ayant beaucoup voyagé je sais à quel point apprendre une langue étrangère peut être difficile à maitriser et certains paliers à dépasser. Surtout, j'ai remarqué qu'il est difficile de se faire confiance dans une langue qui n'est pas la nôtre. C'est pourquoi je vous propose mon aide ! Native française, je suis originaire du Poitou Charente dans l'ouest de la France. J'ai eu l'opportunité de beaucoup voyager lors de mon adolescence et pendant mes études particulièrement en Asie. Je réalise actuellement ma dernière année de master à Paris. Depuis plusieurs années, j'ai pris l'habitude de donner des cours d'anglais à des enfants mais aussi à des adultes , de tout niveaux. J'ai ainsi accompagné des Coréens, des Iraniens, des français etc. J'ai comme objectif que vous preniez plaisir à apprendre l'anglais et à atteindre vos objectifs. Le cours sera donc totalement personnalisé et s'adaptera à vos besoins et à votre centre d'intérêt. Je vous ferais également découvrir la culture au cours de nos leçons (sujets d'actualité, moments forts de l'année ect) car pour apprendre une langue il faut comprendre la culture du pays. Mes cours auront comme objectif de vous faire travailler les cinq compétences : expression orale, écrite, compréhension orale et écrite, grammaire. Bien entendu si vous ne souhaitez travailler que sur un aspect en particulier cela sera possible. Nous pouvons utiliser le matériel que vous possédez ou nous pouvons également travailler avec les ressources dont je dispose. À votre demande et en fonction de vos besoins je pourrais vous donner des devoirs pour poursuivre vos efforts en dehors de nos cours. N'hésitez pas à me contacter si vous avez des questions. Je serai heureuse d'échanger avec vous sur vos attentes, vos objectifs et ma méthode de travail. Au plaisir de vous aider dans votre quête de la maitrise de l'anglais. À bientôt ! Hello my name is Audrey! I'm a student in international relations and Chinese foreign languages at INALCO. Because of my studies and having traveled a lot, I know how difficult it can be to learn a foreign language and how difficult it can be to overcome certain levels and to be confident in a language that is not our mother tongue. That's why I offer you my help! I am a French native from Poitou Charente. I traveled all around the world when i was a teenager and a young adult especially in Asia. Now i'm finishing my studies in Paris. For several years, I have been teaching English to children and adults of all levels. I have accompanied Koreans, Iranians, French etc. My goal is that you enjoy learning English and reach your goals. The course will be totally personalized and adapted to your needs and interests. I will also introduce you to the culture during our lessons (current events, highlights of the year, etc.) because in order to learn a language you need to understand the culture of the country. My classes will focus on the five skills: speaking, writing, listening, reading and grammar. Of course, if you wish to work on only one aspect in particular, this will be possible. We can use the material you have or we can also work with the resources I have. At your request and according to your needs I can give you homework to continue your efforts outside of our classes. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I will be happy to discuss with you your expectations, your goals and my work method. I look forward to helping you in your quest to master the English language.
English Tutoring for Adults - Beginners to Advanced
Hello! I have been teaching English for five years, to adults and children alike. I offer classes that are uniquely adapted to the students needs and their interests. My aim is to build my student's confidence, by following their line of inquiry — engaging in a rich, and increasingly challenging dialogue with the individual. My classes are for adults and professionals, who want to: . Develop and widen their vocabulary; . Need help preparing for an exam, a paper or an important interview; . Gain confidence in spoken English; . Attain a fluent level of spoken and written English We will begin by identifying the student's greatest interests — those subjects they are most curious about and topics that stimulate them. These topics will be "stimulators", fueling conversations and language activities that the student themselves will eventually lead. Then, we will identify the student's biggest worries regarding the English language — where they are confused, or tend to make mistakes. This will form the workshop part of the lesson, focused on overcoming tricky grammatical mistakes and revising more complex linguistic and phonetic errors. After 8 years of teaching I have found this tailored approach to be, by far, the most effective. I look forward to collaborating with you soon!

I will follow his program closely so that he understands his course well and does not feel in difficulty in class. These private lessons can be accompanied by homework help and in-depth study of the subjects covered in class. I listen to the student and the family to understand the specific needs of each.
Individualized German Online Tutoring for Business, School and Private

Please don't hesitate contact me to find out more about my teachings by asking questions and letting me know about your goals and concerns. I not only speak German as my mother tongue, but I also have excellent English skills and have taught adults and children in Japan, the USA and France. While living in Japan, I taught English to biologists of a biotech-company. For this purpose, I prepared current newspaper articles corresponding to the interests of the students and the teaching objectives for the classes. In class, the students and I used these articles to study the language, discuss the vocabulary and grammar as well as the language style used. In New York, I did not teach a language, but fashion design at the University (FIT Fashion Institute of Technology, NYC) for several years. All classes were taught in English with the student body consisting of international students, which required detailed preparation of the class. At the High School of Fashion Industries (HSFI), also in NYC, I taught fashion design and creation to students grade 9 - 12. Here too, the lessons were exclusively taught in English. For my teachings, I developed daily detailed lesson plans to not only make sure that the predetermined class goals were easily reached, but also to ensure that the class content was tailored to the students' needs and that a positive learning climate was promoted.

Native Spanish (Chilean) - Learn or improve your Spanish by considering your interests in a more fun way
I propose a more playful learning by using literature, music or themes of interest to the student that allow speaking, using the language on a daily basis and losing fear of making mistakes.
