    Improve your English (the fun way!) with a New Yorker

    Hello! I'm so glad you found my class. If you are looking for a casual and fun way to improve your English you have come to the right place!

    I've learned that students absorb material the best when they are relaxed, having fun and in real world environments, so I do my best to incorporate those elements in all of my classes.

    A typical class involves us taking a stroll down a new neighborhood and chatting casually. Topics range with the student's fluency level, but typically include any of the below:

    -- the weather
    -- interesting things we pass by on our walk
    -- our career aspirations
    -- our travel plans or memories
    -- favorite television shows
    -- intriguing current events and news articles

    On the first day I ask that my students bring their language goals written down on a piece of paper. Every class you are also welcome to bring particular questions you have about pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary and overall colloquialisms.

    I look forward to having you in my class! I am also offering webcam based lessons through October 2020 as I am not in town currently.

    Ciao,
    Taylor

    About Me

    Hello Apprentus community! I'm so excited to share my love of languages with you all, and I'm grateful for your eager and receptive attitudes!

    I keep my classes casual because I've found that students absorb and retain more information when they are having fun and relaxed. Whenever possible I combine a fun activity -- adjusted for the student's age, preferences, and fluency level -- with learning!

    When we do in person lessons this means combining a fun walk around a neighborhood learning English in real world scenarios, like ordering a coffee, asking for directions, people watching, describing an interesting building and the weather, as well as talking about your emotions and the current events of the world.

    When I conduct webcam or online lessons this usually means basing lessons around a favorite topic or tv show of the student. For example we could watch a 10 minute scene from Gossip Girl with english subtitles on and discuss the scene, the characters, their motivations, dilemmas, and outfits, as well as where they are in New York City.

    If students are younger then I incorporate hands on play. We'll finger paint with different colors to learn the colors, we'll play with different shaped objects, and go through picture books in English. We'll play dancing games identifying the parts of our body like "Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes" and sing the ABC's.

    At the beginning of my courses I like to have the students write down their language goals, as well as a written commitment to me and themselves to practice each week. I also encourage students to come to class with one question about the english language!

    Looking forward to getting to know you and celebrating the diversity and ingenuity of humans via language!

    Education

    I attended Columbia University in the City of New York, a prestigious and international university with many students from all over the world. I majored in History, but also studied Psychology, Chinese, and Spanish. I was an ESL Tutor, was on the Debate Team, and graduated in 2013.

    Experience / Qualifications

    I studied Psychology of Learning, Foundations of Psychology and Adolescent Developmental Psychology at Columbia University. I tutored ESL students of all ages and really enjoyed it! I've been teaching for almost 4 years now (on and off) and am excited to use Apprentus to start teaching more consistently!

I have experience teaching English as a second language both online to students in China.And in schools in Italy. I have a diploma in International Business Management from Northumbria University, and studied abroad in Sweden and Portugal and therefore know how important and daunting learning a language can be. I specialise in teaching English as a second language. My aim is to be the lessons fun and engaging. Depending on what you want to learn we can focus on grammar, sentence structure, building vocabulary of a particular topic or start at the basics learning phonics. If you would like support and tutoring on homework or topics you are studying in school I can support students with this and help them achieve in school. I can also teach Business English and help you prepare for a presentation or interview or help with your studies. My class would be perfect for either adults or children wanting to improve their oral and written English skills.

    ***** Availability update made on 09/01/2020. Valid until further notice ***** I offer you my services in order to make you truly effective orally / in writing in English. If you have to use English in the course of your professional activity and you don't get comfortable with it ... If you are tired of being spotted immediately as French ... If you don't know still not when to use the present perfect / preterite .... I'm here to help you and make you progress. * Linguist by training and author of school textbook in this capacity. Note that I am not this young student who had a good mark in the Baccalaureate or this other who is supposedly bilingual. I have been teaching as a teacher in the National Education since 1995 and I can tell you that teaching cannot be improvised. It is not an activity that we do "like that". I offer you my expertise and my experience. By the way, to have 10/20 in the Baccalaureate, it is enough to have the A2 level (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd year) so I let you imagine the desperation of future engineers who must obtain at least 750 in the TOEIC! (the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course is prepared according to your needs. Feedback is always given. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, connections ... Oral grammar. * Adaptation to all levels: from college to post-baccalaureate through high school. => Post-bac: preparation for TOEIC, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First-Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Orals and writings from grandes écoles such as ENA => Orals and writings from business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...)
