Together, we practise pronunciation techniques; fluency; increasing vocabulary; writing; and many more skills - using methods including speaking and listening.
Over the years, I have worked with international students, corporate clients, scientists, business entrepreneurs, and translators to enhance their communication skills regarding clarity, intelligibility, confidence, accuracy, and vocabulary range.

About Me

I'm a native English speaker from Cheshire in England.
I now live in Cambridge, which is a cosmopolitan city, bustling with life and fun. I find it extremely rewarding to be able to help students who are prepared to improve their communication skills in order to improve their lives.

In my free time, I love to be outdoors, whatever the weather: exploring, noticing the changes in nature, and walking with friends and family. I really enjoy cooking (I find it therapeutic), and it’s even more enjoyable with friends or family.
Reading is a great pleasure of mine, and, just as much, I like to hear about what other people are reading. Holidaying in different countries is fabulous, where I like to try the local and popular foods.

Dutch conversation lessons for children, teenagers and adults
My way of teaching is including having fun. Why?! It can be really "scary" to learn a different language, but not with me! I will make you feel confident in speaking another language, so you will be ready to explore more and more by yourself in time. We will focus on listening, pronunciation and conversation. We will do this by reading, listening and I will be explaining the Dutch grammar step by step. Afterwards I will challenge you with some homework you need to prepare for the next time ;) Ready for this challenge? See you in my class than!!!

Communication Training (Professional / Personal) & Public Speaking
Whether your goal is personal or professional, speaking is a predominantly physical activity, relying on a body, a voice, a breath, a rhythm (diction) and an emotion (the imagination and the sensations, reflecting the involvement of the speaker in his speech. How to send a clear message? How to make the difference, to make an impression? How to regain self-confidence and control the management of his emotions? Knowing how to speak in public is now a necessity for the company and in the company. From a personal point of view, this is a vector for better relationships and optimal messages. On the phone, in a meeting, in front of a client or a banker (…), your public speaking must be effective and efficient with clear, simple and powerful messages, creating a match between the message received and the message sent. Simple and pragmatic tools will be presented and then put into practice for: generating listening ● making an impression ● fostering trust ● generating need ● motivating teams by explaining a strategy ● getting messages across within groups. Controlled, the method allows: • improve self-confidence and stress management with the development of the speaker's fluency (verbal-bodily), his public speaking and his sense of repartee and improvisation • to work on his ease, leadership, his NLP, his charisma, his creativity and to go towards a certain personal development, through a set of scenarios * improve the characteristics of the spoken voice (timbre, pitch, intention, flow) Completed by basic exercises (diction, voice, presence, breathing, presentation, time management ...), role plays, improvisations and simulations will be set up. With the key words: pronunciation, rhetoric, verbal and non-verbal communication, diction / articulation, the sense of repartee, structured speech (…). The goal is not only to focus on verbal communication but also on nonverbal communication, so as to make the control of his body, his voice (...), a real and lasting strength. Depending on the interaction between the trainer - coach and the one who consults, there is no single way to operate: each type of session depends on the needs and difficulties of each. In all cases, it is very often a question, while adapting to your own needs and after having precisely diagnosed your desired objective and the blockages encountered, to combine the theory (the bases of the studied concept, for example NLP / information asymmetry / the "how to say no" / the tools of non-verbal communication or the application of kinaesthesia) and its application (through exercises and direct applications). For example, are discussed: - the fundamentals of public speaking: breathing, gaze and body language - diction and elocution: rhythm and range of your voice - management of your emotions and your emotional overflow (example: stress) - work on the body, to amplify your charisma and ensure consistency between your message and your body ... with the aim of: * Enhance your presentation and arouse interest by focusing on your strengths, your qualities ... your personality * Match the content and form of your message * Improve your charisma, your self-confidence and the benefits of your emotional intelligence THE TRAINER: Postgraduate School Training & Ivy league college in the United States, our teacher has specialized and worked for over 13 years, in Europe and North America, in the field of communication and public speaking in renowned public and private international institutions, involved in forums and conferences, and focused on two areas: training and coaching, with the key words pedagogy and careful methodology. PLACES - Locations: Geneva - Lausanne - Friborg - Neuchâtel - Montreux - Basel - Sion - Sierre - Morges - Bienne. But currently and until further notice, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid. These sessions also seem to be perfectly unanimous since they have the advantages of live (example: quality of the interaction), without its disadvantages (example: loss of travel time) with additional advantages (example: notes that can be re-read on the chat). In this context, the videoconference sessions for which you asked me to seem to suit everyone perfectly, take place very optimally and generate a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). That is why, at your request, I continue to offer this option. Take good care of yourself and yours! PROGRAM A la carte program: evaluated and adapted to each need.

Private lessons in English for all levels.
I offer English language courses for all levels. If I am asked for academic support (from primary to university), it will mainly be a question of reviewing, with the pupil or the student, the points of the subject which pose a problem to him (grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, etc.). If I am asked for a general learning of the English language, it will be mainly, but not exclusively, a learning by dialogues in English language, which will allow the student, as and when, to acquire vocabulary, understand grammar and fix linguistic structures in your head. I also offer oral conversation classes for anyone who wants to express themselves in English more fluently and improve their oral comprehension of the language. Serious guaranteed. The course is given by videoconference (Skype, Teams, Zoom, WhatsApp, etc.)

De technologie om je Frans te verbeteren. Lessen met een gecertificeerde native docent.
TECHNOLOGIEËN VOOR HET LEREN. Hallo, Mijn naam is Laurie en ik ben een onafhankelijke FLE-leraar, afgestudeerd in het Frans en Romaanse talen en literatuur sinds 2012. Ik heb vijf jaar ervaring onder mijn riem (in het buitenland en in België). Ik heb LangMethod gemaakt, een leermethode voor online cursussen. De cursus omvat: -Het materiaal (artikelen, video's, oefeningen van afbeeldingen en teksten, grammaticale theorie, links naar de oefeningen ...). Ik gebruik Google Doc, dus het beste is om een ​​Gmail-adres te hebben om er toegang toe te hebben. -De correctie van oefeningen buiten de les (de schriftelijke uitdrukkingen worden gecorrigeerd buiten de les, of met de student, volgens zijn behoeften). -Toegang tot een applicatie (gratis) om woordenschat op uw smartphone te bestuderen. -Een woordenschatblad - uitspraak - grammatica / vervoeging, verzonden na elke cursus. -Indien nodig, een vocabulaireopname (voor beginners). -De realisatie van online oefeningen en tests uit de verzonden vocabulairebladen. -Motivatie, gelach, goed humeur :-) Mijn methode: - Het is gebaseerd op spreken. -Voor grammatica gebruik ik een vraag / antwoord-methode (geleerd tijdens de training in het CERAN-centrum). -We werken aan de uitspraak met de verbotonale methode (oefeningen om je stem te zetten, voor ritme, enz.). Ik zou je misschien zelfs laten zingen! :-) -Alles gaat door het gesproken woord voordat het geschreven woord wordt doorlopen, maar ik pas me duidelijk aan aan de behoeften van de studenten. -De cursus is een beetje anders voor kinderen en adolescenten: ik gebruik interactieve games en kaarten via de webcam. Tot binnenkort! Laurie NB: Mogelijkheid om een ​​factuur te maken voor particulieren of bedrijven.

Learn English For University and High School Exam Preparation, Grammar Enhancement and Public Speaking
These sessions are focused on English for people who encounter challenges in speaking and communicating and lack correct grammar. We would develop situational vocabulary, corresponding verbs and adverbs that help transmit more precision when speaking.

We also train people who are trying to pass an IELTS, or other tests and exams such as university or high school exams. These classes tend to take place in a more relaxed yet fun and stimulating environment. I constantly provide feedback to students about their progress and assign homework to ameliorate the practical and theoretical aspects of the English.This class is all about making English accessible and easy to learn to all through a variety of social and interactive stimulus. If you book this class and don't feel that it suits you may request your money back after the first class.

Justyna
preparatory classes for IELTS / TOEFL / CAE / CPE exams
I graduated from the University of Athens where I attended courses in pedagogics, psychology, and linguistics. I worked at a language center between 2009-2016 where I was a director of studies and taught mainly English as a foreign/second language. Since 2005, when I first started teaching English, I have taught children and adults on a variety of language proficiency levels and with a variety of needs (general knowledge/terminology/for specific purposes), both individually and in groups. I constantly seek progress, meaning that I study further through reading books/articles concerning didactics/methodology and learning difficulties (chiefly dyslexia), observing other teachers as well as attending seminars (online or face-to-face). I will help you learn weird English spelling and pronunciation with fun. I assign homework and after I receive it, correct it thoroughly additionally providing a lot of remarks/examples if they are necessary. During my lessons I use : - Skype/Whatsapp/Messenger to connect with you, - Google Docs to keep notes, which you can check at any time and they are yours to keep, - sketch board me to make mind maps to show connections between ideas, etc. - books, PPP, word docs, diagrams, pics, etc. - pronunciation/spelling/grammar games, - authentic materials were taken from websites. I adore my profession and desire each and every one of my students be satisfied with the lesson. That's why I make sure the atmosphere is stress-free and nice. I also want my lessons to be as effective and close to real-life needs as possible. Therefore, I make sure they are well-prepared, although they can be altered at any point, should such an opportunity arise. I like explaining things in a variety of ways as well as make use of dictionaries, diagrams, etc. When it comes to students who want to obtain certificates, I am very demanding. What can I teach? - I would love to help you improve/develop all language skills (speaking/writing-listening/reading + grammar/vocabulary/pronunciation), - I would love to help you prepare for certificates such as IELTS / TOEFL / CAE-ALCE / CPE-ECPE, - I would love to help you with homework and assignments (literature, history) from school and university (but please contact me about that IN ADVANCE).

Phillip
Private French lessons with native French speaker in Co. Mayo
I have been tutoring French and English for the past 20 years to students of various ages & origins and of numerous backgrounds: children, teenagers, adults, professionals, and also sometimes even older seniors (85+). Why am I teaching both languages? Well, I’m bilingual and of American & Swiss/French origins, and... I live in Ireland! This is what makes my teaching strong and relevant because I understand both cultures and therefore I can adapt my classes depending on the language of my students. While I was studying social work in French-speaking Switzerland, I was giving French/English private lessons in order to earn a side income. And I genuinely enjoyed it doing it! After I graduated and started working full-time, I didn’t give up this activity because I loved meeting new people and helping them achieve their goals. My teaching is always interactive in order to hold my students’ attention during the whole length of the classes, using numerous learning tools (photos, newspaper articles, music, videos, etc.) Naturally, I will focus on the priority of each student. Some students will want to improve their pronunciation, grammatical, and vocabulary skills, others will need to prepare a presentation or a speech at school/work, while others just want to learn a new language to enrich their general knowledge. And sometimes too, parents want their younger children to master a new language. Thanks to my education and experience with children, I’m also able to run a class dedicated to them! What you will gain from my course is not only good pronunciation and vocabulary/grammar improvement but also a deeper knowledge and understanding of the culture that surrounds one language! When you speak a language it’s important to appreciate the lifestyle, traditions, and heritage of the nation(s) speaking it. Both French and English are spoken in many countries around the world, as primary languages, and with so many different accents: the learning process is unlimited! Before the COVID restrictions, I was mainly teaching face-to-face and with a maximum of four students, but at the moment, I’m only teaching online (one-and-one) on Zoom. Besides that, I’m also a genealogist, I’m running Spiritual Seminars in the West of Ireland and I have a passion for vegetarian & vegan cuisine. I hold a Degree in Early Childhood Education for many years I owned a private “Before & Afterschool” facility for children aged 4 to 12. I’m looking forward to meeting you

MAKING ONESELF HEARD! (For Public Speaking & Presentations)
Explore Public Speaking through... Intonation and Melody When training for a presentation, decide which words and passages deserve extra attention and increase the tone to emphasize these points. If something sounds exaggerated or false, your audience can turn against you. Volume A speech is not ordinary conversation, and a presenter can’t convey passion and enthusiasm if the words are delivered softly. Clarity Don’t forget to articulate every word, to ensure clarity on your part and understanding on the part of the audience. Emphasis Even in the same sentence, emphasizing different words can change the focus of a message. Changing emphasis can alter meaning and/or implication. Pauses when pauses are placed in strategic spots in a speech, they can make the difference between a good and an excellent presentation. There are several purposes for which pauses can be used: to give listeners a chance to absorb something that’s just been said; to generate expectations about something that’s going to be said... Pacing & Tone If you often get negative feedback about the faster or slower delivery of your speeches, practice delivering a speech sometimes faster and sometimes slower, so you can arrive at a natural pace.
