Gain Confidence Speaking English with a Native English Teacher!

The focus of this class is to give the students the tools they need to speak the English language with confidence and fluidity. It aims to attend to the responses of the question:

"What are my weaknesses when I try to communicate in English?"

My goal is to provide challenging, interactive and FUN lessons and activities that all attend to the student's particular experiences and needs. Some of the students I have had the pleasure to work with include:
- Doctors who travel internationally for work
- Students needing a tutor for the Cambridge exams
- Individuals who do public speaking.
- Small companies and start ups who do business abroad
- Adults who simply want to improve grammar

I assign homework activities and periodic progress reports via Google Docs. We utilize audio/visual and reading material found online, so having a smartphone or tablet in class is helpful, but not required.

About Me

I am obsessed with languages and the many, beautiful ways that humans communicate with one another. I also consider myself as an effective teacher, in the sense that I adopt my approach to fit a wide range of student needs and learning styles.

I am fluent in American English, Portuguese and Spanish. I am presently teaching in Barcelona, Spain. If there is one thing I have learned it's that traveling is the very best way to absorb a language. No matter how effective a teacher may be, incessant exposure to the language is the way to learn it. If I had never spent time in Brazil I would have never attained the fluency I now enjoy. One of my goals in Spain is to become fluent in Castellano and Catalan.

Outside of teaching English, I am an avid tennis player (PTR certified tennis instructor) and competitive road cyclist. I've completed three Chicago Marathons and am a Boston Marathon qualifier. Maintaining a fit mind and body are of great importance to me.

I look forward to coaching you! Feel free to reach out if you have questions or concerns regarding my English classes.

Reviews (1)

My son, Zack found Marton very easy to work with and thoroughly enjoyed the lesson. Zack is sitting the SAT in September. Marton was happy to provide help with more than just the SAT agreeing to read his personal statement. Highly recommended.
The TOEFL and SAT are two standardized tests that most North American universities use as an entrance requirement for non-native speaking students. In order to be competitive, focused and relevant practice is a must-have. Moreover, having an experienced test taker at your side to guide you through your TOEFL and S process is truly setting yourself up for success! I have ten years of experience teaching and tutoring English as Second Language and standardized tests, including the IELTS, TOEIC, SAT, GRE and GMAT. Additionally, having worked as a tennis professional, I am confident that I will equip you with the mental sharpness required to ace the exam! In this class, we will set up a lesson plan that is specific to your personal needs. It aims to mindfully attend to your weakness(es) while achieving marginal gains in your stronger areas of the test. You will maximize your score by learning how to: - be mindful of and avoid bad test-taking habits - take clear and effective notes - structure your speaking and writing responses - use the test timer as a useful tool - employ savvy time-saving tactics

Marquez
English - Grammar, Conversation and Cambridge Exam Prep
My style of teaching focuses on conversations based on everyday situations. I think that conversation, whether with beginners or with more advanced levels, is a very effective way of facing grammatical and pronunciation challenges. Each class is personalised to the needs and interests of the students. Along with grammar and conversation classes, I prepare students for official Cambridge exams. These classes are focused on understanding the format of the exam, the requirements and tips for passing each section.
