English Classes for Intermediate & Advanced Students

I have over 600+ hours of tutoring experience, am a novelist, published by Cassava and Scholastic and an Oxford graduate with an MA Oxon in English Language and Literature, I’ve also got a Master’s in Philosophy where I focused on philosophy of language.

My classes are tailored to the needs of the student but are steeped in research based methods on how to attain a language swiftly, speak with confidence, master nuance, and be culturally adept as well. Too often language courses forget to tailor language to the context. Mine do not.

About Me

I’m a novelist, currently also a neuroscience grad student with a former life as a corporate executive at Accenture. I write forgotten histories about communities overlooked across time. My first book In the Palace of Flowers was set in Iran, named one of Times Radio’s top 5 books of the year, a Harvard special recommendation and named to African Arguments’ Best Books of 2021. My last essay for Granta was declared Best of the Literary Internet by LitHub and endorsed by Pen/Faulkner.

The “forgotten” is a central facet of my life and work. Tutoring is about focusing and attending to students who need more support that they are receiving in their class or have ambitions that cannot be catered to in the classroom, or are not able to access a traditional classroom. My tutoring practice is thus centred on the comfort, ease and needs of the student. I prioritise making them feel seen, visible, dignified because that is when their confidence and capabilities will shine. It is in these settings that they begin to thrive.

Education

My degrees in order. I began my academic career at Oxford University, MA Oxon in English Language and Literature.
UCL, MA in Philosophy
KCL MSc in Neuroscience — currently ongoing

Experience / Qualifications

I am a novelist, I have 600+ hours of one to one tutoring experience. I’ve tutored for Oxford Summer Courses, Oxford Exclusif and have worked privately as an independent tutor for many years.
I also have a corporate background and thus tutor business English as well.
Same as above.
Also Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
I’m a novelist (see my profile for my info) who studied Literature at Oxford. I help students develop their creative practice and improve their creative output regardless of their literary ambitions. I work with students who need to improve their creative writing as part of their school work but also for those aspiring writers who want to be novelists or poets or screenwriters. I design a tailored programme to help them stretch their abilities, develop their capacity to master pacing and much more besides.
I teach business English to students who are either non-native English speakers or are unfamiliar with the professional or corporate world. We do interview preparation, dialogue, role-play, become familiar with business jargon, interpersonal conduct and how to be at ease in professional settings.
I have 600+ hours of experience as a tutor, studied English at Oxford, have a Masters in Philosophy and I’m a historical novelist. I help students at GCSE & A Level who are struggling with humanities subjects ahead of their exams. I have worked with students of all abilities and aptitudes, my priority is making sure they understand the subject, what the work is asking them to provide and can deliver it appropriately. Most of all, I understand that struggling at school can be frustrating or intimidating so I do my best to ensure that learning feels relaxed and fun.

Learn French and English

English Essentials for Travelling: Simple sentences, phrases and words to make yourself understood.
The theme of the lessons will be "Traveling in an English-speaking country". Lessons will be designed to teach the student sentences in English that they will find useful in real life. The student can choose sentences they want to learn in English and the lessons will be adjusted based on the age of the student. I can also assist with pronunciation. For children, as lessons continue the lessons can focus more on simple sentence construction in English. For adults who already speak English, we can work on high level words and phrases depending on the context, for example: business emails. These lessons will be focused on the words and phrases the pupil wants to learn/ would find helpful.

Nneka Ezinwa
English lessons for adults and children of all ages.
I believe that as the world becomes more of a global village, it’s increasingly important for children and young adults to learn English in order to interact, do business, and be exposed and up to date with world knowledge these days. I will help with written, oral, grammar, and all English related exams.

Ayyati
Acquire the American or British English accent!
As a student in preparatory classes, rigor is one of my traits that allows me to assimilate the lessons well with simple and effective approaches. The English language like any other language requires perpetual and gradual monitoring. My method is based on the use of any physical means to let the language insinuate, in other words, to listen and communicate then to master the language tools. The idea is to trace the foundations, the accent in the unconscious which will automatically translate the grammatical courses without complications.

MacKenzie
American language assistant who works as an English tutor
Good morning ! My name is Mackenzie, I'm American from Chicago and I'm 22 years old. I live in Avignon and I work as an English assistant. I would like to work as an English tutor. I went to one of the best liberal arts universities in the United States, Wellesley College, where I received my degree in French and political science. So, if you are looking for someone to help you write academic or professional texts in English, I can help you. I worked as a French tutor for high school students in the United States for 2 years. I was a babysitter for several years for children from 6 months to 12 years old. Also, I love cooking, painting, knitting and many types of art, if you or your child want an English course where you cook and create art too. At university, I did comparative cultural research of France and the United States, so I can talk about cultural differences. My work experience includes: library work, cultural research, and research using computers to combat misinformation, refugee resettlement, and most recently politics as part of an Illinois Governor's campaign. .

English and Spanish are very important nowadays.
