My main goal was to improve my pronunciation and fluency in English. After taking some lessons with her I gained more confidence to speak English. Fay helped me to improve my English skills. Her suggestions really helped me to go further. In addition, she is very kind and has a good experience. I highly recommend taking lessons with her.

Anne
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.

Cristina
English teacher and private tutor for specific purposes, travelling, official exams, improve fluency, writing, speaking, any other.
I am a native Spanish speaker holding a Bachelor's degree in TEFL and a Master in Italian language. I've started my degree in the prestigious University of Granada in Spain and completed it in Cambridge, UK. I have been teaching since I am 18, to all levels, for all different kind of specific purposes, obtaining great results. Teaching is my vocation and my passion! Lessons will be tailored and personalised, we won't follow a book. I always create my own materials depending on what my students need, current level, objective that we need to reach and learning style. This is very important as every person is different. We can't apply the same method to two completely different people. I can assure you I have never had a disappointed student. I work hard to obtain the best results and assure your satisfaction getting you where you want to be.

Julie
Learn or improve your English to sound more like a native speaker.
Your lessons will be personalised for you. We'll discuss your needs and look at your strengths and weaknesses. After an initial assessment, we'll concentrate on your weaknesses while using the skills you already have to help you communicate. The focus will be on production of the language.

Parisa
Improvisation and Private Dance Classes in your Favorite Genre
You will learn how to show your emotions through movements to best inspire the audience and enjoy. We will work on rhythm, tempo (which are two different things), creativity, improvisation techniques and theatrical performance (if interested). I do not like to work genre-based (for instance only hip-hop, or only classical music), but we will practice what you like the most. However, my strengths are rather in contemporary and modern style, hip hop, break dance, belly dancing, and Persian dance. We can also specialize in one of these if you are interested.

English Lessons: Essentials of Grammar and Literature.
In today's day and age of globalization and networking, knowing English has taken up a primal importance. It facilitates communication, which opens up a vast array of avenues and helps to broaden a person's horizons. My aim is to guide students through a lively and enjoyable path as they learn to speak, read and write English by appreciating the cultural contexts and the rich literature available.

Florence
French/Russian/English Tuition (English native speaker)
I am a University-educated languages student (BA in French and Russian, MA in Slavonic studies) with years of living in France that have afforded me a highly competent level of French, and a year at Moscow State University as well as four years of intensive study that allow me to now provide my own language classes. I can specialise my programme to suit you - whether it be working towards a school exam, or a more business-level and technical training, or conversational, informal language skills.

Dasha
Russian, English for beginners, continuing and advanced students and adults
Being able to speak multiple languages is a great advantage and such knowledge is valued by the employers. Moreover it is always a great confidence boost being able to communicate with people from other countries. I offer Russian and English classes at any level. I will help you to understand the basics from alphabet to more complex grammatical things as well as cultural elements that will fascinate you.

Bianca
Engels voor gevarieerde doelgroepen door een tweetalige juf
Engels is ongetwijfeld één van de belangrijkste talen in de wereld in zowel een sociaal als professioneel perspectief. Wil je beter kunnen begrijpen waar al die Engels-talige liedjes nou echt over gaan of wil je een Hollywood film zonder ondertiteling kunnen volgen? Wil je jezelf beter kunnen uitdrukken tegenover je Engelse vrienden? Heb je extra hulp nodig met het voorbereiden voor een Engelse examen? Wil je op een toepasselijke manier in het Engels kunnen communiceren voor je werk? Met al deze dingen en nog véél meer ben je bij mij op het juiste adres. Na 13 jaar in Canada te hebben gewoond spreek ik op een native niveau Engels. Buiten dat heb ik een universitaire diploma in Second Language Teaching en heb ik twee jaar in Madrid les gegeven. Een vreemde taal kan voor veel mensen behoorlijk wat stress bezorgen. Desalniettemin, ik doe altijd mijn best om mijn lessen zo interessant en stress-vrij mogelijk te maken. Ik ben een enthousiate, geduldige en erg positieve juf.

I am happy to tailor individual lessons to specific needs including: - conversational skills - exam preparation - interview practice I also offer Speech and Drama lessons for both children and adults.

I teach according to LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) principals and am able to offer one-to-one or small group classes. LAMDA holds examinations several times a year in various cities so taking a formal examination is also possible for interested students. Examination categories include: Acting, Verse and Prose, Public Speaking, Reading for Performance etc. I have a BA in English and Theatre Studies from the University of Melbourne as well as a PCertLAM Certificate of Performance Studies from LAMDA.

Looking forward to hearing from you! Kind regards, Anna-Rose

A thorough insight into the English Language for all ages and abilities
I specialise in teaching English as a foreign language to students of all ages and capabilities. As well as having tutored many previous families on a regular basis, I have participated in volunteer courses in Madagascar and with Serve the City. My role in Madagascar was to teach all age groups and all abilities English and basic environmental science. I was then selected to teach some political figureheads and to work with disabled children. I have worked with all ages from 3 - 40+. Not only do I have a passion for English language in and of itself, I enjoy sharing my passion with others, and gain personal satisfaction at the sight of improvement in a student. I am quick to gain the trust and respect from my students and am friendly and open with all. I am a native English speaker and I am happy to provide any more information under request.
