English Speaking Practice For Any Occasion You Need

This class is designed to make the student more confident in their English speaking abilities. This class is designed for those who already have a background in English but want to learn from a native speaker how to have everyday conversations.

The class includes both formal speaking and slang components as well as everyday conversation and more formal speaking.

I always tailor my classes to the needs of the individual. We could have classes focused on English speaking to prepare you for studying abroad, to prepare you for a job interview in English, or for any reason you could imagine.

Effective and efficient, adapting to my child beginner's needs and putting a smile on it's face from the very beginning.
I am from Bristol, Connecticut (a native English speaker) and specialize in teaching English as a second language. I have taught previously in the American School system at a middle school (ages 10-14). For the last two years I was a Peace Corps Volunteer living in the Gobi Desert in Mongolia where I taught English to both students and adults.

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.

Pal
Intercultural negotiations, Public Speaking, feeling comfortable in new cultural settings
There is no general solution for everyone when it comes to public speaking or intercultural business negotiations. Based on the still ongoing experience in international negotiations, and lecturing and researching cultural and economic integration of groups of people, I approach personal trainings with a globally-tested tailored approach. The class is exercise-based and requires intensive participation. It can serve as a prep course for a new expatriation/job-posting experience or simply as confidence-builder for upcoming rounds of international business negotiations. You'll be introduced to the general approach to and the principles of public speaking, but we will focus on your character and objectives. First we talk about your experience and worries, and then we will adjust the process to your needs.
