    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!

    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! :)

    Aileen
    Private language course English - French - German
    Hello, My name is Aileen and I am pursuing a pedagogical training in Biel en ems. My three mother tongues are French, English and German and that is why I have deepened my grammatical knowledge in English and German since I am studying in French. Regularly I go to German-speaking Switzerland and Germany and I also travel to America for longer periods. It is now more than 3 years that I teach in the Jura. Generally to children under the age of 15 years. I speak only the language of learning of the student, unless parents wish for other suggestion. Speaking the language with the student allows the brain to avoid translating everything and learning with pictures, explanations, and so on. I am available for any questions and wish you a pleasant day, Aileen
