English Development with Native Speaker (Pronunciation, ESL, Business, TOIEC/TOEFL/IELTS Prep)
I am a New Yorker living and teaching in Morocco for 2+ years. I am a relatable, experienced and professional English trainer. I'm based in Casablanca and offer training-packages in Casablanca, throughout the Mediterranean and the European Union. I provide Immersion Courses, American English adaptation/translation services, career-building tools and documents and have a niche for pronunciation correction and TOEIC Preparation. I teach general ESL (English as a Second Language), business and industry-specific English and all-purpose English too! This is also a communicative English class for developing speech. Here we will explore, vocabulary with nuances in meanings, synonyms, idioms, proverbs, some phrasal verb and prepositional verbs and all-around social English. The possibilities are endless for focusing on Public Speaking, Intonation and Voice Projection as well. This may be stimulated by interesting audios, short readers or videos. If there are topics you have in mind, we can additionally explore and incorporate this into your lessons. If you need to start speaking English, this class is for you. **NOTE: This class can also be offered and adjusted to accommodate multiple teenagers, adults or professionals as a group session, to make it more economical for you. It is advised that groups not exceed more than 5 persons per session. Charges apply to distances teacher must travel; especially, if out of standard office hours or on bank holidays!!

English classes for students of all levels and ages!
My name is Anne, I am Russian, but have spent more than 10 years in England, where I also studied. I teach English to non-native students of all ages. I have been tutoring English for the last 4 years. I am really passionate about languages, and studying some (Spanish, Italian, and French) myself and about teaching English, to others. I teach using creative and new methods. I feel that it is important that each student, at whatever level of English, feels motivated and engages fully in the classes, I make it my aim to keep each class entertaining, as well as beneficial for the English level. My timetable is quite flexible, and, when I am on holiday, I can always keep up the lessons via webcam. I will gladly help study for any exams, or just help improve the level, fluency and grammar.

Callum
English Classes (Private or Group) and Proofing/Editing Services
CELTA-qualified native English teacher with 2+ years experience teaching kids, teens, students and adults from all backgrounds. I'm also a journalist and rMA graduate (Cultural Analysis) with a lot of writing and editorial experience. I've taught general English, exam preparation (Cambridge, IELTS) and academic English in the UK, Spain and Amsterdam. I'm young, smart and casual – I prefer informal classes with a lot of fun activities, video and popular culture. But I'm also a specialist in high level writing and academic skills. I can help most with writing at all levels! I offer structured 1-on-1 classes tailored to the student's needs, more informal conversation classes, group classes (up to 6), or proofing and editing services – let me know if you need help with cover letters, applications, university coursework or writing of any kind! Rates vary with type and class size (groups and conversation classes are cheaper than structured 1-on-1). The minimum price shown is for conversation classes – more structure and preparation of materials will cost more.

Eyre
English Tutor; Adult English; All primary subjects tutored in English;
After five years of teaching at international schools as the homeroom teacher, I understand how the school subjests are organized and the tests SAT, GED, GRE, and GMAT exams are focused. I hope to create a classroom for the students to explore and discover the world around them. Whether it's science, math, or music, the students will learn through the channel of English. Experiments, discussions and art-work are involved in the class while the subject goals assigned from the school are reached at the same time. English is more than a language skill to master, but a media to all the knowledge the world has to offer.
