    English Essay Writing: Eloquence, Persuasion, and Grammar
    A good essay is undoubtably an art-form. There are many essential components to a harmonious piece of writing, and to ensure an effective balance between them requires great skill, and some flare. Both of which can be taught. During this class students will learn: - how to use sentence structure to their advantage - how to write persuasively and with eloquence - how to brush their essays with a distinctive quality, thereby setting them apart form the rest - the correct use of quotations and referencing in an English essay - perfect grammar This class works best in conjunction with a school or university curriculum. Together we can edit essays you have already written, or work on new essays from the beginning.

    Speaking, reading, and writing English for beginners and intermediate level
    Hi, My name is Cathrine. I am 19 years old this year. I have just completed my IB diploma at Birkerød Gymnasium. I will be starting my degree in Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence as of September 2020. I am originally from Malaysia but I have been living in Denmark for the past 4 years now. However, English is my first language. I am fluent in speaking, reading, and writing the language. Therefore, during the lesson, I will incorporate tasks and activities involving these 3 aspects. We will also go through basic grammar rules that will be useful for both writing and daily conversations. I will provide printed worksheets and assignments (included in the fees of the lesson) to be done during the lesson and also as homework. Workbooks may be provided at an additional cost which you can work with on your own at home after the lesson. This is of course highly recommended for your own benefit as practice makes perfect. In the first meeting, we will discuss further on the preference of workload and what you would like to learn. For more inquiries, you can contact me and I will do my best to reply as soon as possible.

    TOEFL test preparation, Improve your English skills
    TOEFL is requested and recognised by numerous educational institutions and other organisations around the world. It is not necessarily a hard test, but it can be tricky and requires practice. With a month of exercises (around 1/2 hours a day), I obtained 119/120. With my class, you will learn how to prepare for the TOEFL in an effective and fun way, in order to be confident and obtain the best possible score during exam day!

    English Pronunciation Classes, Exam Preparation and Proofreading
    This class is for students who want to refine their English pronunciation, either for examination preparation or for job interviews. My goal is to give students the confidence to speak English fluently and accurately. I am an experienced teacher and linguist, and I encourage students to develop their speaking skills for academic, social and career advancement. Online classes are structured, with regular homework. Pronunciation classes are recorded, so that students can practise at home, and I give them regular progress reports, so that they can measure their improvement. This is my special area, but I am also an experienced exam coach and academic proofreader (MA and PhD theses).

    Aimée Victoria
    The Fundamentals of English Language and Literature
    I'm Aimee and I am a student at Københavns Universitet studying English Literature and Scandinavian Studies. Prior to moving to Copenhagen I was an English tutor for four years, teaching students both in and out of school. I typically tutor students from folkeskole to Gymnasium level and have taught those with additional needs such as dyslexia and autism and respect that some children need a little extra help with certain subjects. I recognise that different students learn in different ways and so I am able to tailor my sessions to their learning style. I am very successful with my tutoring and have helped pupils raise their grades from below a pass to top grades. I am enthusiastic and driven which I feel is very important especially as, from experience, when someone struggles academically they tend to distance themselves from that certain subject. By having a positive and passionate tutor alongside their revision, I've found that students tend to warm to the subject after only a few weeks even if they still feel they struggle. This positive mindset really helps to drive them to reach their full potential and achieve the grade they deserve. I am very excited to begin tutoring and I hope to hear from you soon.

    Vladimir
    Language tutor for Italian, English and Spanish at all levels
    I am an enthusiastic, kind, and experienced teacher, who provides lessons for Spanish, English and Italian for any levels. Over the course of the class, the goal is to help students achieve the level of the language they wish. We would go over pronunciation vocabulary, grammar, reading, speaking, writing and understanding. I use various teaching methods suited to student’s level and age. I like to speak to my students mostly in the language I am teaching as to better improve the learning experience. I full working proficiency in English, having completed all my secondary school and university studies in English as well as achieving a B2 in the Spanish DELE and being mother tongue Italian. Please feel free to contact me if you'd like tutoring sessions in any of the subjects listed above. I look forward to hearing from all of you!

    Tom
    Math, English, Spanish and Test Preparation Tutoring
    I always used to help kids from elementary school to get ready for tests in most subjects. My way of teaching is popularizing the topic and explain in easy and understandable manners. I also have experience with teaching adults on their way to learn new language. From past years of tutoring I gained a lot of experiences and also materials - assigments are common within my classes. What is more, as an international student I can offer insight to new culture, language and methods.
