    Creative English: General, ESL and Test Preparation (TOEFL, IELTS, SAT/ACT)

    I specialize in ESL and General English for all ages, ranging from beginner children's lessons to help with homework to reviewing and progressing in advanced grammar. I also have extensive experience teaching a a variety of English-focused test preparation: TOEFL, TOEIC, IELTS, SAT/ACT, GMAT verbal, essays, writing, public speaking, interview preparation, literature and history.

    Extra information

    I completed my TEFL teacher training in Paris, France in October 2011 and have since taught at more than one English Language School as well as worked with many private students in New York and France. In addition to my teacher training, I am an actor, writer, and performer. Because of this, I have excellent skills with communication, working with others, and being in front of small or large groups of people. I am a native English speaker, capable of very concise, articulate speech, and have a great love of the English language. I achieve amazing satisfaction from inspiring others to communicate. I enjoy the creative elements of teaching and using the students' interests to drive a passion and desire to learn. Amidst my minimal travels across the globe thus far, I have learned that communication is the key to understanding and appreciating each other. In France, I have been able to have a much better understanding of the culture and people I interacted with by knowing their language. Therefore, I believe the more we can express ourselves to those of importance in our experiences, the more fulfilling our lives can be.

    English for beginners , learn to speak english with me via webcam
    English is a West Germanic language that was first spoken in early medieval England and is now a global lingua franca. Named after the Angles, one of the Germanic tribes that migrated to England, it ultimately derives its name from the Anglia (Angeln) peninsula in the Baltic Sea. It is closely related to the Frisian languages, but its vocabulary has been significantly influenced by other Germanic languages, particularly Norse (a North Germanic language), as well as by Latin and Romance languages, especially French. English is the third most widespread native language in the world, after Standard Chinese and Spanish. It is the most widely learned second language and is either the official language or one of the official languages in almost 60 sovereign states. There are more people who have learned it as a second language than there are native speakers. English is the most commonly spoken language in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, Ireland and New Zealand, and it is widely spoken in some areas of the Caribbean, Africa and South Asia. So as you can see we widely need to speak english in nowadays , it's necessary once you are abroad and don't speak the language of the country . Let's start together to learn english , step by step we'll achieve to highest result. I am experienced french teacher , but I also teach english for beginners , armenian , russian and dutch for beginners . I am waiting for you my lovely students

    English with a Native Speaker | Engels met een Engelstalige
    I am happy to help you practice conversing in English to build confidence, and can also provide help with your spelling, grammar, and vocabulary. If you wish to practise English for a specialised topic (e.g. for work) let me know in advance and I'll study the topic before we meet. Otherwise, I am perfectly happy to help with day-to-day English and casual conversations. We can also meet in a mutual location, such as a park or cafe - coffee included in lesson price :) I have recently moved here from New Zealand after finishing my university studies there. I am also learning Dutch (approximate level B2) and have studied some Greek and French before too, so I can empathise with the struggles of picking up a new language and wish to help make the process as smooth as possible.

    Sanhatul (Audri)
    Flexible English Tutoring for all age groups following Individual Methodology (also SAT and IELTS)
    Hello! My name is Audri and I am a second-year student pursuing a Bachelor of Business Administration degree at KU Leuven. I have followed the British curriculum throughout my school life and English is my first language. I have 4 years of experience as a private tutor and 1 year of experience as a professional English instructor specialising in grammer, reading and writing skills. I worked with IELTS and SAT participants during this time. The aim of my classes is to improve spoken and written English for all age groups. My method of teaching is simple and flexible, we will first discuss and find out what the student needs to work on the most and prioritise that in lessons. In case the student is participating in tests such as IELTS or SAT, we will draw up a lesson plan according to test format. To make things fun for both of us, classes will be as interactive as possible :) Bonus: you get to enjoy learning from someone with a great sense of humour :')
