    About Me

    I am a native English speaker who lived in the multi-lingual and multi-cultural city of Toronto. I spent most of my life surrounded by ESL speakers and have naturally learned to work with them in all contexts of my life. As a child, I studied Portuguese, which is also my native language, and as an adolescent, I picked up French and Spanish. Throughout my university studies, I partook in many language immersion programs. These experiences made me realize that languages could be an excellent asset in our competitive job markets. This understanding led me to embark on my own language journey, where I moved to the French-speaking province in Canada to teach French-speaking students the importance of learning another language. Here I worked as an English Instructor working with a variety of students of different ages and levels of English. I encouraged my students to improve their knowledge of the English language and its associated cultures. As a language learner myself I understood the hardships of my students and was always able to find a point of understanding that would turn into a lesson. Teaching, tutoring, and working collectively with others who do not speak my native language has always been a part of my life. It is my nature to help others around me to feel comfortable in the language they are trying to learn and to be able to speak confidently.

    NATIVE SPEAKER FROM THE UK ENGLISH LESSON, English teacher
    I am an English teacher graduated from England. I obtained my bachelor's degree in linguistics at the University of Lancaster (UK) and will soon have my master's. I have been teaching English to students who want to improve their English or become bilingual for over 3 years. All my students are satisfied with my course and those who had passing exams have successfully passed.

I use several methods and adapt easily to the needs of the student. I offer courses of all levels (beginners to be confirmed and beyond) as well as English courses for IELTS / TOEFL, A-LEVELS or correction of written work. I have worked with children as well as adolescents and adults. My 3 years of experience as a teacher in Angletterre helped me develop the qualities necessary to motivate my students effectively for guaranteed success. I can teach online no matter the region.

    Habib
    English for business/conversation/presentations/writing
    I'm an experienced English teacher and communications professional. I've also worked extensively in journalism, so can provide guidance on all means of communication. I have a British accent - London to be precise! However, I am familiar with the nuances of other accents and spelling differences. I have a lot of experience in helping newcomers to the British accent understand the subtle pronunciation differences that will make it far easier for you to understand. I've lived in the UK, Spain, Brazil and now Belgium and love discussing other cultures, societies and environments. It's really for fulfilling for me to incorporate all of this into my lessons and watch students progress over time. I prefer giving conversational lessons and only guiding students on points of grammar they don't understand (as the grammar all starts to make sense when you get the rhythm and vocabulary first!). My lessons incorporate video and other listening and interactive activities.
