    private tutoring english speaking conversation
    Former English bilingual speaker at the City of Paris, I want to help students to be more comfortable speaking during conversations on current or cultural topics. I note in writing - correction sheet - vocabulary, grammar rules to study or review, at the end of the course the vocabulary and grammar rules are recalled. The correction sheet is given to the student and reviewed in the next class.

    Aulas de Inglês (ONLINE) - English lessons (ONLINE)
    PT - Oi, sou Lucie e será um prazer te ajudar a aprender inglês, que seje do zêro or para melhorar o seu conhecimento. Eu amo botar os meus estudantes pra falar porque eu acho que a prática é o segredo para aprender um idioma e melhorar o seu conhecimento. Eu semper dou aulas inspiradas em temas do cotidiano (como se apresentar, como marcar uma consulta, fazer compras, ir no medico, inglês profissional, etc.). Veremos a grámatica, vocabulário, ea pronunciação juntos. Se você é intermediário, faremos aulas com leituras, artigos para você pratar e aprender mais. E posso dar aula em português, você quiser. EN - Hi, I'm Lucie and I would be glad to help you learn English, be it from scratch or to help you improve. 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. And hey, I can teach in Portuguese if you want!

    ENGLISH and GERMAN LESSONS FOR CHILDREN/ TEENS/ ADULTS BEGINNERS TO ADVANCED
    Hello everyone and welcome to my English and or German lessons taught in group. I organise English and German lessons for children and teenagers and separately adult English group lessons (beginners to advanced). For children and teenagers, interactive activities are used as a way to motivate them, help them remember what they have learned in class and make sure they will be able to apply their language skills in real life context. For the adults lessons, depending on what the students are willing to learn, we can have discussions based on the news, some grammar, writing... I am open to any suggestions, just tell me your needs and I am going to adapt the next lessons for you. If you wish to invite your friends and make a group with them, just let me know and I will allocate you a time slot. For private English lessons, please have a look at my other advertisements. The German lessons are usually for beginners/ intermediate (exceptionally advanced levels in German can be organised only if there is a high-demand). Don't hesitate to contact me should you have further questions. It would be a huge pleasure to integrate you in one of my classes. :-)

    English Tutoring: Listening, Speaking, Reading | Beg to Adv
    Hello! I have been teaching English for five years, to adults and children alike. I offer classes that are uniquely adapted to the students needs and their interests. My aim is to build my student's confidence, by following their line of inquiry — engaging in a rich, and increasingly challenging dialogue with the individual. My classes are for children, young adults and professionals, who want to: . Develop and widen their vocabulary; . Need help preparing for an exam, a paper or an important interview; . Gain confidence in spoken English; . Attain a fluent level of spoken and written English We will begin by identifying the student's greatest interests — those subjects they are most curious about and topics that stimulate them. These topics will be "stimulators", fueling conversations and language activities that the student themselves will eventually lead. Then, we will identify the student's biggest worries regarding the English language — where they are confused, or tend to make mistakes. This will form the workshop part of the lesson, focused on overcoming tricky grammatical mistakes and revising more complex linguistic and phonetic errors. After 5 years of teaching I have found this tailored approach to be, by far, the most effective. I look forward to collaborating with you soon!

    Business English Lessons for Effective Business Communication (online/offline)
    Apart from general English language learning, this type of classes will focus more on English business vocabulary, grammar, business writing, business conversation and listening comprehension. This class would be suitable for people who plan (or already do) to study business/economics, want to enhance business skills for the business trips/clients, want to communicate and network effectively with international people in English. For this class I will use several books as materials (popular editions) dedicated to Business English growth. I will involve much conversational practice and discussion activities of specific topics. The material (books, texts, exercises) will be shared with a student. All the classes and preparation for them will be adapted to each student individually. Feel free to contact me for questions or book a time slot for a class.

    Emma
    Trilingual Tutor Offers English Classes (Online/in Paris)
    Bonjour! My name is Emma, I'm 22 and both French & English (I have both passports!). While I'm originally from Toulouse, I moved to Hamburg aged 9 and stayed there until the end of high school. I speak French and English fluently along with German (C1-C2) and Spanish (B1-B2). I graduated from the University of Southampton last year with a First-Class Honours BA in Film and English literature and I'm about to start my masters in Film Production at la Sorbonne Nouvelle. I have been working as an English and French tutor since 2016, both at home and online (Zoom, Skype). I have experience with students aged 6-18. I structure my lessons according to my their needs, homework and the topics they are working on at school. I like to incorporate my passion for film and literature during my lessons by asking my students to watch specific films or read short stories and/or books we can then discuss and sometimes work on. With younger students, I like to read them stories and play games (Memory, Guess Who? etc.) that will allow them to use the content we covered beforehand. When online teaching, I also use British Council learning games to make the tutoring session more interactive and interesting.

    Maths for high school and university students of Licence, English, and Persian
    The method that I have adopted in teaching Mathematics is that of guided struggle. You will be presented with the necessary background knowledge in the first 15-20 minutes of the class and then you will be presented with problems that you ought to solve in class with me. You will be left to solve the problems on your own while thinking out loud and discussing the approaches that comes to your mind with me at the same time. Only after failing to solve the problem will I provide you with a hint or guide you towards the right method. Whatever that is left unsolved will be homework for the next session that you should return to me. For Persian and English, you are expected to be acquainted with the overall structure of the language that you choose from. We shall mainly practice them by speaking and discussing various topics in the language of choice. You will be assigned with a topic at the end of each session to write an essay on and hand it over in the next session.
