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!

About Me

Hi, I’m Sara from Dublin, Ireland. I’m currently doing a PhD on “English in the Pacific” at the University of Bern. I have 5 years experience teaching English as a foreign language and two years teaching at university level.

I started teaching English back in 2008 during a study-abroad in the North of Tenerife. I enjoyed it so much that I came back to Ireland and did a TEFL course and then an M.A. in Linguistics and language teaching and learning at University College Dublin.
I moved to Madrid in 2013 and spent a year teaching English in a primary school to ages 7-8, and the following year teaching adults in Business English and preparing Spanish secondary school teachers to teach their courses through English. I gained notable clients through Business English such as the CEO of the National credit institution (ICO), the top managers of the national Export organisation (ICEX), and the Minister of public work and development, Ana Pastor. During this time, I also prepared students for their Cambridge Exams and final-year assessments (Matura equivalent). I have been a Matura expert for the past two years.

I like to teach using a range of mediums and methodologies and make sure the class is engaging and fun.
I can provide teaching materials based on your needs but if there is a syllabus you wish to work with, that’s perfect also.
I look forward to meeting you!

Jack Lachlan
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.

Alicia
English course NATIVE SPEAKER graduate from England, all levels (beginner to university), 5 years of experience.
I am a graduate teacher from England, I have a BA and MA in Linguistics (English). I am currently researching the best methods for teaching a second language (like English) to adults and children. I have been teaching children and adults for 5 years, from beginner level to university level. The best way to improve in a new language is to take lessons with a qualified, native teacher. :-) I adapt my lessons according to the level and needs of the student. We can work on grammar, reading, speaking and comprehension. I generally use the news in English to encourage the student to express themselves, correct pronunciation while reading and it is a great way for the student to acquire new expressions / vocabulary. I also give grammar-based exercises and make sure to apply what we have seen in the real-life context. If you wish, we can also work on more specific subjects such as business. I am also qualified for the IELTS / TOEFL, A-LEVELS or the correction of written work. I can deliver the lessons online if required. Don't hesitate to contact me for further information. I'm looking forward to meeting you. :-)

Learn ENGLISH and SPANISH - Tutoring for all levels
Languages open you a lot of doors, and they're so much fun to learn. I'll be willing to help you out with Spanish and English, so that you can learn to love them as I do! Classes can adjust to the student's needs: focusing on grammar, vocabulary, conversation, etc, and to different levels. I think its crucial to also adjust to the student's way of learning, so that the best results can be achieved.

Nicole

I lived in Japan for more than 6 years and also got N1 level on it's language test. I have studied Japanese in Malaysia for 2 years , 4 years of University and worked 2 years in Japan therefore i know all sorts of Japanese grammar and vocabulary. I might not be native but I can assure you that my pronouncation is fairly good. As for Chinese and English they are both kind of my mother tongue because I have been speaking it since young. So I am confident I can help you with all 3 languages. I would love to have a good conversation with you and fix your grammar , vocabulary and of course pronouncation along the way. I usually don't assign homework but I will ask you questions upon your next class. Please contact me if you have any questions!
