    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.

    My name is Jacob, I am an independent architect from New Zealand who now lives here in Basel. I've been using Sketchup for ten years, creating award-winning architectural projects. I offer my free time to teach the modeling software Sketchup. Whether you want to use the program for architecture, design projects, student projects, or for personal reasons, I bring along how it works and how do you design fluidly in 3D through Sketchup. Sketchup is my favorite modeling software because it really feels like sketching in 3D. By teaching, I bring you to the point of view that you feel the same. That you are confident with the program. Together we can work on your project or just do some teaching. After the first lesson, we can organize a customized learning plan. I recommend at least two hours of teaching a week. As a result, and depending on your current skills, it could take one to six weeks. For advanced students, I offer how to make curved shapes; how to render viewpoints from the model as lifelike images; and how, after designing the design, you can export to other CAD programs. I am originally from New Zealand. The lessons can be held in German or in English. I am looking forward to teaching you. Jacob

    Learn the language of love with me _ italiano per tutti
    Italian is my mother tongue, I love its sound, its grammar structure, the culture it expresses. I hope to pass on to my students my passion and enthusiasm, thanks to the experience I made at university, where I studied ancient Greek and Latin, then working as a teacher in high school, and gaining the DITALS, which is a diploma to teach Italian to foreigners. I have experience with students of different levels and age, and I gear each lesson towards my students' goals and preferences.
