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!

Learning languages allows you an innumerable number of experiences and opportunities. I can offer you to learn, practice, and improve your knowledge in these languages. I can adapt to many situations: online classes or classes at your home. We can together, select topics of interest, and I will plan a number of activities for you to learn in this situation. Practice, practice, and practice is the key. We all make mistakes when we learn, but that is also part of the learning process, that is how we improve. Don't be afraid of trying.

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!

Learn English for all levels of experience from 'Hello' to 'Goodbye' and everything in-between
Hello, my name is Jack, a native English speaker originally from Manchester, England. I have experience teaching English as a second language both online to students in China.And in schools in Italy.

I specialise in teaching English as a second language. My aim is to be the lessons fun and engaging. Depending on what you want to learn we can focus on grammar, sentence structure, building vocabulary of a particular topic or start at the basics learning phonics. If you would like support and tutoring on homework or topics you are studying in school I can support students with this and help them achieve in school. I can also teach Business English and help you prepare for a presentation or interview or help with your studies. My class would be perfect for either adults or children wanting to improve their oral and written English skills. Each class will be personalised to your needs and abilities with the first class used to evaluate your level and how we can best use further classes to improve your abilities and see results.

***** Availability update made on 09/01/2020. Valid until further notice ***** I offer you my services in order to make you truly effective orally / in writing in English. If you have to use English in the course of your professional activity and you don't get comfortable with it ... If you are tired of being spotted immediately as French ... If you don't know still not when to use the present perfect / preterite .... I'm here to help you and make you progress. * Linguist by training and author of school textbook in this capacity. Note that I am not this young student who had a good mark in the Baccalaureate or this other who is supposedly bilingual. I have been teaching as a teacher in the National Education since 1995 and I can tell you that teaching cannot be improvised. It is not an activity that we do "like that". I offer you my expertise and my experience. By the way, to have 10/20 in the Baccalaureate, it is enough to have the A2 level (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd year) so I let you imagine the desperation of future engineers who must obtain at least 750 in the TOEIC! (the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course is prepared according to your needs. Feedback is always given. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, connections ... Oral grammar. * Adaptation to all levels: from college to post-baccalaureate through high school. => Post-bac: preparation for TOEIC, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First-Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Orals and writings from grandes écoles such as ENA => Orals and writings from business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...)
