    English and French lessons at home - adults and children
    Hello, I graduated from a Master in Architectural Civil Engineer. I offer private lessons at home in French and / or English. My mother tongue is French (I am French from Lille). I have a very good level of English (C1), following a year spent abroad as well as my master's degree in English. Feel free to contact me for more information :)

    Ophelia
    ENGLISH LESSONS ENGLISH TEACHER FROM THE UK, qualified teacher from England
    I am a qualified English teacher from England. I obtained my bachelor's degree in linguistics at Lancaster University (UK) and will soon have my master's degree. I have been teaching English for over 3 years to students who wish to improve their English language skills or become bilingual. All my students are satisfied with my course and those who had entrance exams have passed successfully. There is nothing like having English lessons with a qualified English speaker ;-) I have done all my studies in English and in the United Kingdom, I consider English as being my first language among all the other ones I have learned. Being a "native" speaker for me is meaningless, the qualifications are the most important as well as the experience (you could have a "native" speaker who makes a lot of mistakes because this person is not qualified in teaching). The price of the lessons is moderate compared to the effectiveness of my courses. I use a variety of methods and can easily adapt to the needs of the student. I offer courses at all levels (beginner, advanced to university level) as well as English courses for IELTS/TOEFL, A-LEVELS or correction of written works. I have worked with children as well as teenagers and adults. My 3 years of experience as a teacher in England have helped me to develop the qualities necessary to motivate my students and teach them effectively. I can deliver the lessons online anywhere in the world. Do not hesitate to contact me to book a lesson, places are quickly taken. If your desired time slot wouldn't be available, I would do my best to adapt myself to your schedule and I would refer you to some of my colleagues. ;-) See you soon!

I love to make my students speak since I strongly believe that practice is the key to learn a language and to improve your knowledge. I always structure my lessons according to subjects based on daily life situations (how to introduce yourself, how to make an appointment, shopping / grocery, going to the doctors, professional language, etc). We'll go through the grammar, vocab, and pronunciation. If you're intermediate, we'll also do some lessons about reading comprehensions. We'll put both the grammar and vocab in practice.

    💬 Would you like to improve your conversational skills? 🗣 I am a Trinity and Cambridge exams specialist 🗣
    Please bare in mind that my availability varies according to the slots reserved by the students. I started my career as an English language teacher in 2008 and quickly became very passionate about language learning. This culminated in a Masters degree in second language acquisition and a Certificate in teaching English to adults. ​ Before starting teaching online, I worked as a Spanish teacher as well as a Director of Studies for different summer schools in the UK. ​ During my teaching career, I have lived in Spain, United Kingdom and China. These have always been great experiences as they have helped me to explore my other passions of travelling and learning new languages. ​Are you looking for a qualified English teacher (British accent) with extensive teaching and business experience? If so, I would love to help you! While my classes are 100% in English, I can also speak Spanish and some Italian words. This gives me a real insight as to why students make certain mistakes, and how to best avoid them. I really enjoy teaching and helping people improve and grow in confidence. We all learn at different paces and in different ways. My job is to give you the tools to learn and enjoy the process. Are you ready?

    English Conversation Classes + Business English vocabulary
    I specialize in helping adults overcome the language barrier in speaking. I will help you get comfortable and familiar with English, by creating personalized conversation classes adjusted to your needs. As an English Studies graduate with four years of experience in language teaching, I realize how problematic speaking can be for language learners, that is why during my classes I focus mainly on this part of the language. If necessary, I will create materials, vocabulary lists and grammar activities adjusted to your needs as well. I will help you reach your language objective in the most comfortable and fun way possible!

In secondary school, it will help you pass your final exams with excellent results and enrol in top universities in France, the UK or the US. Drop me a line if you're interested!

    I am a student of foreign languages and work daily with English. We can work on English grammar and vocabulary. We can also, if you wish, chat a bit in English to help you practice the language.

    Nguyen
    General / Business English for all levels (all ages)
    As a teacher, I always aim to create a fun and comfortable classroom environment for my students, as I believe that people learn best when they are relaxed and having fun. My students (usually aged between 5 to 60 :)) have a lot of opportunities to practice what they've learned (whether it's a new idiom or grammar structure) in-class through casual conversations or role-play activities. If you enjoy hearing random trivia about life in different countries (Vietnam, the UK, Slovakia, Belgium), or engaging in deep conversations about world issues, while learning new words and grammar structures, sign up!
