About Me

I have 7 years experience teaching English Language and Literature to ages 3-18, including students in both International and Dutch schools in London, Amsterdam and Amstelveen.

I get to know the student as an individual and try to instill in them an understanding and enthusiasm for the subject. I am patient and friendly, as I believe it is important to ensure that tutoring is seen as a positive experience which can help a student achieve their full potential. By using a mix of techniques, using video clips, quizzes, TV shows and worksheets, I aim to keep the subject alive, but also ensure all my teaching is rooted in solid exam technique where necessary. My students have gone on to have a marked improvement in their grades and pass exams at a higher level than they were predicted before tutoring.

I have also helped professionals perfect their English and submit applications, presentations and publicity material in English.

I can coach anyone with their public speaking or drama related needs, since I am a professional working actress, trained in London. I love to help students wishing to apply for drama school in the UK or America with their entrance auditions.

Education

Post Graduate Diploma in Professional Acting, Drama Studio London 2013.
BA (Hons) English Literature and Film & Theatre, University of Reading, UK.
I have worked as a personal tutor in the UK and Amsterdam for the last 7 years.

Experience / Qualifications

English coach to professionals in a variety of high-profile areas, who need to submit presentations, applications and publish promotional material in English.

Personal tutor to several high-school students in the UK, for English Language and Literature.
Early years tutor in the UK to bi-lingual child, introducing reading, writing and counting skills.
Taught English as a foreign language to class of 26 children in Hebei Province, China.
I specialise in teaching English to students studying up to their final school exams, as well as English as a foreign language. I assess a student's level, strengths and weaknesses, in order to help them achieve their exam potential. I am an actress, professionally trained in London, who can coach students through admission auditions for Drama schools, or help anyone prepare for public speaking. I have experience in teaching English Language and English Literature to students aged 11-18. I also have helped professionals write English copy for websites or create personal statements / letters of motivation in English for University applications.

Conflict management & negotiation: communication support for effective and sustainable control
It is a question of putting in place rational and professional tools to defuse conflicts and enter your comfort / security zone. In particular simple and logical techniques, which make it possible to resolve and manage violent situations in a harmonious, efficient and lasting way. The objectives are: 0. Understand and identify the issues / risks then find a balance between empathy and conviction 1. Use interpersonal communication techniques resulting from mediation to defuse tensions and gain distance 2. Dissociate the relational and the nature of the disagreement - Overcome cognitive and psychological obstacles 3. Acquire the techniques of self-defense and mastery without hurting and being injured 4. Face and then defuse difficult behaviors (blackmail attempts, threats, destabilization) or even dangerous with a mediation strategy 5. Develop conflict management and negotiation skills by alternating attentive listening, active speaking and rationality in the face of the limited rationality of the angry individual. Statistically, the progression following these private sessions is quickly noticeable, from 2 or 3 sessions *. (* study 2020) Postgraduate School Training & Ivy league college in the United States, our teacher has specialized and worked for over 13 years, in Europe and North America, in the field of communication and public speaking in renowned public and private international institutions, involved in forums and conferences, and focused on two areas: training and coaching, with the key words pedagogy and careful methodology. PLACES : - Locations: Geneva-Lausanne-Friborg-Neuchâtel-Montreux-Bâle-Sion-Sierre-Morges-Bienne. But currently, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid. These sessions also seem to be perfectly unanimous since they have the advantages of direct (example: quality of the interaction), without its disadvantages (ex: loss of travel time), with additional advantages (ex: of notes on the chat, which can be reread afterwards). In this context, these videoconference sessions for which you have requested me, seem to arouse a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). At your request, I therefore continue to offer them.

Cours en ligne. Professeur de FLE diplômée, la technologie au service de l’apprentissage.
LES TECHNOLOGIES AU SERVICE DE L'APPRENTISSAGE. Bonjour, Je m’appelle Laurie et je suis professeur de FLE indépendante, diplômée en Langues et Littératures françaises et romanes depuis 2012. J’ai cinq années d’expérience à mon actif (à l’étranger et en Belgique). J’ai créé LangMethod, méthode d’apprentissage pour les cours en ligne. Le cours inclut: -Le matériel (articles, vidéos, exercices à partir d’images et de textes, théorie grammaticale, liens vers les exercices…). J’utilise google doc, l’idéal est donc d’avoir une adresse gmail pour pouvoir y accéder. -La correction des exercices en dehors du cours (les expressions écrites sont corrigées en dehors du cours, ou avec l’élève, en fonction de ses besoins). -L’accès à une application (gratuitement) pour étudier le vocabulaire sur votre smartphone. -Une fiche de vocabulaire - prononciation - grammaire/conjugaison, envoyée après chaque cours. -Si nécessaire, un enregistrement du vocabulaire (pour les débutants). -La réalisation d’exercices en ligne et de tests à partir des fiches de vocabulaires envoyées. -De la motivation, des rires, de la bonne humeur :-) Ma méthode: -Elle est basée sur l’oral. -Pour la grammaire, j’utilise une méthode question/réponse (apprise lors d’une formation au centre CERAN). -Nous travaillons la prononciation avec la méthode verbotonal (exercices pour poser sa voix, pour la rythmique, etc.). Je te ferai même peut-être chanter! :-) -Tout passe par l’oral avant de passer par l’écrit mais je m’adapte évidemment aux besoins des élèves. -Le cours est un peu différent pour les enfants et adolescents: j’utilise des jeux interactifs et des cartes via la webcam. A bientôt! Laurie NB: Possibilité de faire une facture pour les particuliers ou les entreprises.

preparatory classes for IELTS / TOEFL / CAE / CPE exams
I graduated from the University of Athens where I attended courses in pedagogics, psychology, and linguistics. I worked at a language center between 2009-2016 where I was a director of studies and taught mainly English as a foreign/second language. Since 2005, when I first started teaching English, I have taught children and adults on a variety of language proficiency levels and with a variety of needs (general knowledge/terminology/for specific purposes), both individually and in groups. I constantly seek progress, meaning that I study further through reading books/articles concerning didactics/methodology and learning difficulties (chiefly dyslexia), observing other teachers as well as attending seminars (online or face-to-face). I will help you learn weird English spelling and pronunciation with fun. I assign homework and after I receive it, correct it thoroughly additionally providing a lot of remarks/examples if they are necessary. During my lessons I use : - Skype/Whatsapp/Messenger to connect with you, - Google Docs to keep notes, which you can check at any time and they are yours to keep, - sketch board me to make mind maps to show connections between ideas, etc. - books, PPP, word docs, diagrams, pics, etc. - pronunciation/spelling/grammar games, - authentic materials were taken from websites. I adore my profession and desire each and every one of my students be satisfied with the lesson. That's why I make sure the atmosphere is stress-free and nice. I also want my lessons to be as effective and close to real-life needs as possible. Therefore, I make sure they are well-prepared, although they can be altered at any point, should such an opportunity arise. I like explaining things in a variety of ways as well as make use of dictionaries, diagrams, etc. When it comes to students who want to obtain certificates, I am very demanding. What can I teach? - I would love to help you improve/develop all language skills (speaking/writing-listening/reading + grammar/vocabulary/pronunciation), - I would love to help you prepare for certificates such as IELTS / TOEFL / CAE-ALCE / CPE-ECPE, - I would love to help you with homework and assignments (literature, history) from school and university (but please contact me about that IN ADVANCE).
