    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.

    Cours particuliers de Portugais brésilien - Anglais
    Je suis déjà diplômé en portugais-anglais, et maintenant je fais un master en communication multilingue. Je crois que la prononciation est très importante pour une bonne communication, alors j'essaie d'aider mes élèves avec ça. J'adore la grammaire et les différences grammaticales entre les langues. Je pense qu’on apprend plus quand on apprend en s’amusant.

    Karla
    English Tutoring by a certified TEFL teacher from London
    As a non-native English Proficiency Speaker (C2), I am fully familiar with the difficulties of learning English as a second language and as a student I am familiar with the hardships and learning progress. I have been certified as a TESOL CERTF teacher and have had experience in giving lessons in a class of 15 students at summer language schools or 1to1 lessons! My focus during the session is to establish the target language and focus on familiarising it to the students. The class duration is 60 minutes and involves targeting the students goals but including the student's needs. I give out homework because it is my believe that 'Repetitio est mater studiorum'- repetition is the main key to making a progress in learning! I understand that learning a non-native and unfamiliar language can be overwhelming thus I try to take the class sessions slowly, including the repetition of the main problem until it is understood, however, I do like to encourage my students to push themselves to a new challenge. The classes are taught solely in English, since that is the target language!

    Sanhatul (Audri)
    Flexible English Tutoring for all age groups following Individual Methodology (also SAT and IELTS)
    Hello! My name is Audri and I am a second-year student pursuing a Bachelor of Business Administration degree at KU Leuven. I have followed the British curriculum throughout my school life and English is my first language. I have 4 years of experience as a private tutor and 1 year of experience as a professional English instructor specialising in grammer, reading and writing skills. I worked with IELTS and SAT participants during this time. The aim of my classes is to improve spoken and written English for all age groups. My method of teaching is simple and flexible, we will first discuss and find out what the student needs to work on the most and prioritise that in lessons. In case the student is participating in tests such as IELTS or SAT, we will draw up a lesson plan according to test format. To make things fun for both of us, classes will be as interactive as possible :) Bonus: you get to enjoy learning from someone with a great sense of humour :')

    Creative Writing
    I am a writer, translator and PhD in literature and arts. I believe that act of telling and especially doing it in writing is not only one of the essential ways of expressing onself but is also a conscious contribution to one's life&wellbeing. The way I am giving creative writing involves references to narrative theraphy as well, and is called bookperformance. It has several ways to adapt and apply the person who wants to discover the strength of act of reading, telling and writing; beauty and power of words when they are read out, thought, spoken out or written. I guide you in English, French or Turkish. And, the writing process could involve all the other languages that you want to or need to express yourselves.
