Ophélie
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. Nothing like having English lessons with a qualified native English speaker! ;-) The price of the lessons is moderate compared to the effectiveness of my courses. 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. Do not hesitate to contact me to book a course, places are quickly taken. ;-) See you soon!

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.

Alex
English for business, pleasure, Cambridge IELTS & FCE preparation, intercultural awareness
Through the lexical approach, you will enhance your existing knowledge of the language, brush up your grammar and become proficient enough to do your job better, get that dream job or simply pass an exam.

Materials come from a variety of sources.
