English lessons with a native English speaker: improve grammar, vocabulary and diction.

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I teach English as a foreign language at all levels, to anyone wishing to improve vocabulary, polish pronunciation, or generally gain confidence in speaking and communicating successfully.

I aim to create a lesson style that suits my student and supports their individual needs in an inspiring and friendly environment. Whether you want to learn thematically, prepare for a presentation or exam, or simply practice conversational skills, I believe that learning should be fun, relaxed, and move at a pace that you find both invigorating and enjoyable!

Extra information

You don't need to bring anything with you other than yourself and your brain, but a pen and paper is suggested so that you can write down new words and grammar rules etc.

If you are working towards an exam, and have particular material which you would like to work through with me (eg. A course book) please let me know prior to teaching, so that I have time to acquire the material before lessons!

About Me

I am a British Soprano with a Bachelor degree in vocal performance and a passion for all things art and culture. I love reading, cooking (eating), and practicing yoga. A teacher of two years experience, I have enjoyed understanding how students learn, and seeing them grow in both ability and confidence within their respective subjects.

During my Bachelor degree, I gained a deep understanding of vocal technique - learning how my voice worked and what 'healthy singing' means. In this time I also studied phonetics, correct diction in Italian, German and French, Alexander technique, acting and body movement. I have an extensive repertoire, from baroque to modern music, and have performed many times both as a soloist and as a chorus member.

I have lived in Germany for two years, learning the language from scratch, and plan to enrol in a master degree (Music) in September. Learning German from a beginner to an advanced level has further deepened my interest in languages and helped me to develop further tools for teaching. I have taught English as a foreign language for over two years, and enjoy working with a variety of students at different levels. Helping people reach their language goal is just as interesting and engaging for me as I hope it is for them! I have subsequently begun teaching German to beginners up to B1/A-level.

My approach to all teaching is very versatile. I aim to create a lesson style that suits my student and supports their individual needs in an inspiring and friendly environment. I believe that learning should be fun, relaxed, and move at a pace that you find both invigorating and enjoyable!

I look forward to hearing from you,
Ella

I really like the lessons with Ella, we are working precisely on my technique. She is very nice and funny. I enjoy the class with her!
I teach German to beginners, who would like to improve their speech, writing and general apprehension of the German language. Maybe you are moving to Germany and don't know where to begin (as was the case with me 3 years ago!), or you are planning a holiday and would like to communicate successfully. Maybe you are preparing for an exam, or are simply interested by the language and would like to learn more. Whatever the case, I would be delighted to help! Lessons will focus on a variety of topics, geared towards your language learning goal. This will prodominantly include grammar - the four cases, sentence structure, conjugation, etc. - vocabulary, and conversational work. I also have experience with phonetics and German diction, which I studied as part of my university degree. I can therefore assist you with correct pronunciation. I have several course materials through which we can work. These would take us thematically through topics such as culture, careers, hobbies and many more. I can also offer general conversational practice, if you are looking to practice and boost already acquired skills. My lessons are always tailored to my students needs, and I aim to create a friendly and inspiring atmosphere. I believe above all that learning should be fun, relaxed, and move at a pace that you find both invigorating and enjoyable!
Ich biete Englischunterricht allen Leuten, die ihr Englisch verbessern wollen, an. Ich kann Ihnen mit Vokabeln, Aussprache, und Grammatik helfen. Unterricht mit Struktur und Themen sind möglich, sowie allgemeine Unterhaltung, wenn sie sich einfach bequemer und flüssiger auf Englisch unterhalten möchten. Ich unterrichte auf Englisch. Somit können Sie den Rhythmus, die Grammatik und das Gefühl der Sprache tiefer verstehen, Ihr Selbstvertrauen besser aufbauen, und die Sprache insgesamt schneller lernen! Ich erschaffe eine positive Lernatmosphäre und passe meinen Unterricht den individuellen Anforderungen des Schülers an. Am wichtigsten ist, dass Sie sich im Unterricht wohl und inspiriert fühlen, und Spaß haben!
I am soprano with a Bachelor's degree in Vocal performance, focusing on Opera, Lied and Oratorio. I teach anyone of any age, from beginner to intermediate, who has an interest in learning to sing. Although my repertoire focusses on classical music, I am happy to work through a variety of genres including folk, musical theatre and popular music, all of which I have experience with. Everyone's voice is unique, and this is one of the beautiful qualities of singing that I am so passionate about. I therefore create lessons tailored to each individual. Lessons will focus on technique, repertoire and interpretation, all of which will help you to build and understand your own true voice. Whatever your goal, I am happy to help!

I remind parents that to have 10/20 to the Baccalaureate, just have the level A2 (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd) so I let you imagine the despair of engineering students who must get at least 750 to the TOEIC! It's the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course gives rise to a detailed report. * In-depth knowledge of the European Framework. (A1 => C2) * Work of language activities. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, links ... The grammar of the oral. * Adaptation to all levels: => College - High school: beginner, false beginner ... => Post-baccalaureate: TOEIC preparation, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Oral and writings of the grandes écoles such as ENA => Oral and written business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...) => Engineering school: preparation for TOIEC.

With eight years of experience in teaching English, German and French, I had the opportunity to work with students of all ages (from 7 to 55 years) and of any nationality. , at a beginner level as advanced. In particular, I taught French and English for a year in a German high school, while working as a DELF examiner at the Institut français de Mainz. I give private lessons of conversation, grammar, version, theme and foreign culture, but also more courses for students in difficulty. Passionate about my work, I particularly like to help students with difficulties in their schooling and strive, as much as possible, to adapt to the needs and personality of my students to enable them to overcome their blockages and the obstacles that stand in their way. Do not hesitate to contact me for more information or to schedule a first appointment. :)
