    About Me

    I am a multilingual language professional with two individual MA degrees in English and Italian language and literature. I also have a post-graduate diploma in Teaching English as a Second Language (CELTA) and a BA degree in French and Spanish.

    I hold a teacher's degree and from 2007 till 2019, I worked with children from 8 to 16 years of age as a teacher of English and foreign languages in mainstream community schools in England.

    I also taught English and Academic Skills at the University of East Anglia and foreign languages at a number of adult education centres.

    I like to involve children in drama activities, games, singing, and performances in the foreign language. I also like using interactive teaching materials and online resources to vary the teaching activities and thus inspire children to use the target language. I like to organize my private lessons to match the needs and interests of my students: I like to see them taking an active role in their learning, asking questions, choosing topics and material and guide the learning process.

The progress of learning depends largely on the student's motivation and the pace at which he feels most comfortable pursuing.

    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.

    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!
