    English Language Classes. Native English Teacher from New Zealand

    I am a highly experienced native English Language teacher from New Zealand. I have taught English for four years to adults of all levels. My specialty is conversational English for spoken-fluency, exam preparation, and English for professional presentations.

    I am now seeking new individuals or groups for communicative and interactive English Lessons in the Basel or Zurich area. My recommendation is a weekly schedule of two 1.5 hour classes for fast improvement. I am available to meet for private or group classes in home, workplace, university or a café.

    My lessons are very engaging, the material I offer is interesting and current. Lessons will be taught in English full-immersion style. I am also fluent in German and Spanish which gives me a strong understanding of common pronunciation and grammar faults. (I have many tips on how to improve these quickly!)

    My previous professional experience include working for the Spanish Military in Madrid as well as the national railway company of Spain. I am an architect by training, so I am very knowledgeable of design vocabulary and expression.

    I look forward to working together with your English language skills.

    Ich heisse Jacob, Ich bin selbstständiger Architekt aus Neuseeland der jetzt hier in Basel wohnt. Ich habe Sketchup seit zehn Jahren benutzt, und dadurch preisgekrönte Architekturprojecten erstellt. Ich biete meine Freizeit um der Modellierungssoftware Sketchup zu Unterrichten. Ob Sie das Programme für Architektur, Designprojekten, Studentprojekten oder auf Persönlicher Grunde nutzen wollen, ich bringe vorbei wie es funktioniert und wie entwürfen Sie flüssig in 3D durch Sketchup. Sketchup ist mein Lieblings Modellierungsprogramme weil es fühlt sich wirklich wie skizzieren in 3D. Durch Unterrichten bringe ich Sie zum Standpunkt das Sie fühlen das gleiche. Das Sie zuversichtlich mit dem Programm sind. Zusammen können wir auf Ihre Project arbeiten oder einfach Unterrichten unternehmen. Nach dem ersten Unterricht können wir ein massgeschneiderter Lernplan organisieren. Ich empfehle zumindest zwei stunden-langer Unterrichten pro Woche. Dadurch, und abhängig von Ihren aktuellen Fähigkeiten, könnte es eine- bis zum sechs Wochen dauern. Für die Fortgeschrittene Studenten biete ich wie man gekrümmte Formen ausmacht; wie man Aussichtpunkte aus dem Modell als lebensechte Bilde rendert; und wie, nach dem Entwurf des Designs, man nach andere CAD-Programmen exportieren kann. Ich bin ursprünglich aus Neuseeland. Die Unterrichten können auf Deutsch oder auf Englisch gehalten werden. Ich freue mich auf Sie zu lehren. Jacob

    English conversation, homework help and thesis correction
    When learning a new language the most important thing to do is practice. This class is designed to help you do just that. You will be practicing with a British English native speaker. The class will be entirely in English and will go at your own pace. The idea is to practice the English that you know and improve your confidence when conversing or writing. The class will be based in your own home where you feel most comfortable and the aim is to create an easy and open environment for you to practice. We will do a range of activities depending on what best suits you or your children. This will include playing games, singing songs (optional), having a conversation about your interests, helping you with homework or thesis and more, the ideas come from you depending on what area you want to improve upon. (The price for solely correcting a thesis is negotiable)
