    English with an experienced native speaker from Britain

    Hi there! My name is Jack, and I'm a native speaking English teacher from Great Britain. I have a CELTA teaching qualification from Cambridge English, and more than four years of experience teaching English in primary and secondary schools, private language schools, English language summer camps, and private English classes.

    I offer private classes for children, teenagers, and adults, preparation classes for the Cambridge or school exams, and conversation classes. I aim to push students to get the best they possibly can out of classes without overwhelming them, and I offer periodic progress reports.

    Conversation is the best method for learning a language. In my classes we will speak a lot to practice fluency, grammar, vocabulary and exam preparation. Alongside this I normally include a mixture of games and activities that have been proven to aid learning. I strongly believe that the best classes are fun and interesting, but also academically rigorous.

    Extra information

    All you need to bring is a pen and paper, and a coursebook if you have one already. I am more than happy to either set or not set homework depending on how much time you have between lessons, and I offer a discount on group classes of up to four people.

    About Me

    I have been teaching English for over four years now, and I love it. I think that lessons should be fun, dynamic, interesting and relevant to the student. However they should also be academically rigourous, and students should be able to feel and see that they are making clear progress if they are willing to put the effort in.

    I think that good conversation, games and activities are important, and that students should have to think in class, not just repeat grammar and vocabulary practice with no real application.

    I have a good British sense of humour, and I appreciate it when students do too, but my favourite students are the ones that go the extra mile and challenge themselves by immersing themslevs in English outside of the classroom by listening, reading, and watching content in English, and who practice speaking with anyone they can!

    When not teaching, I like to spend my time playing or watching sport, listening to music or watching films / series, reading about politics and history, and hiking in the mountains!

    English for pre-intermediate and upper-intermediate students
    I am a CELTA trained and certified English teacher living in Switzerland for the last six years. I have worked as a journalist in India, and write articles for an online magazine based in Zurich. I have taught both pre and upper-intermediate students during my observed teaching practice sessions in CELTA - St.Gallen. I offer private coaching sessions for those interested in speaking the language better. Students can bring their own course books if they wish, or I could use some of the authorized course books I have with me. I am creative with my lessons, and students can rest assured they will enjoy their lessons. Students could also select a topic of their liking time to time which I could take into consideration to design a lesson plan. There will be plenty of speaking practice in my class and students will also be given handouts to take back and revise what they learnt during my class. Let's have fun speaking English together! :)

    Sara
    Experienced Native English Teacher Excited to Help you Excel in English!
    I offer all types of classes which I have experience teaching in the past: 1. General conversation classes These can be done in groups and the cost split. These are fun and engaging classes which focus on getting people talking. Communication (i.e. describing, discussing and chatting) is the objective and writing activities and learning grammar are left for homework. 2. English for Cambridge Exams I have worked in a language academy successfully preparing students for Cambridge Exams for two years. I have also worked as a linguist for a start-up company which creates online preparatory oral Cambridge exams. I cover: Cambridge English: Key Cambridge English: Preliminary Cambridge English: First Cambridge English: Advanced Cambridge English: Proficiency And can provide materials to see you achieve the results you desire. 3. Matura Preparation I am highly experienced in working with young adults and have prepared many students for their final year exams. I have been a Matura expert for two years (co-examiner) and I am happy to share the tricks of the trade in passing your exam. 4. Business English classes I have experience teaching people from bottom level to top in meeting their specific communication demands. Professional writing, cross-cultural communication, business terminology and telephone practice are just some of the topics which I address early on. I like to use my own material with the supplement of the actual text, data or documents (etc.) from your day to day practices. 5. General English If you are a student who wants to improve their grades, an adult who wishes to start a new language or return to English for fun or work, I can meet you to discuss your hopes and we can see what we can achieve together so that you'll be excelling in English before you know it!

    Aileen
    Cours privée de langues Anglais - Francais - Allemand
    Bonjour, je m'appelle Aileen et je poursuis une formation pédagogique à Bienne à l'ems. Mes trois langues maternelles sont le français, l'anglais et l'allemand et c'est pour cela que j'ai approfondie mes connaissances grammaticales en anglais et en allemand puisque je fais mes études en français. Régulièrement je vais en Suisse-allemande et en Allemagne et je voyage aussi en Amérique pour des durées plus amples. Cela fait maintenant plus de 3 ans que j'enseigne au Jura. Généralement à des enfants en dessous de l'âge de 15 ans. Je parle que la langue d'apprentissage de l'élève, sauf si souhait du parents pour autres suggestion. Le fait de parler que la langue en question avec l'élève, permet à son cerveau d'éviter de tout traduire et de plutôt apprendre avec des images, explications, etc. Je suis à disposition pour toutes questions et vous souhaite une agréable journée, Aileen
