English Tutoring (CELTA qualified, native English speaker)

I am a native-English speaker with a degree and a CELTA certificate. I have just spent a year teaching English in Belgium, and was able to form special and lasting relationships with my students there. I specialise in teaching English to older students and adults, from pre-intermediate to upper-intermediate levels. My teaching focuses on contextualising English in a useful way, so that the language can be most successfully used in real life. I keep my lessons entertaining and use lots of student-focused communicative practice. I am also able to offer support with more specific areas such as CVs and written work, proofreading and job interview preparation. I am a friendly, supportive and dedicated teacher :)

About Me

I am currently studying for an MA degree in London after successfully teaching English for a year in Belgium, and am looking to find people who want to improve their English skills :)
I am very hard-working and really care about all of my students. I am very flexible and am willing to travel to teach at student's location.
My teacher training focused on using as much communicative practice as possible so that students learn to engage with the language effectively, whilst practicing receptive skills such as listening/reading for gist and specific information. However, depending on the student's goals and requirements, I will work out which methods are best suited for you as an individual learner!

Spanish lessons/ Native teacher/İstanbul'da ve online özel İspanyolca dersi/ DELE/ özel yerli öğretmen / Clases de español/ スペイン語のレッスン。
My Spanish lessons will be skill and grammar focused. I will help the students to develop their language skills so that they can use them in real contexts. For the DELE and Cambridge assessment lessons the students must have a good command of the language because I will prepare them to know the structure of the tests while they practice and develop the main skills and sub skills needed to have a good result. İspanyolca derslerim beceri ve dilbilgisi odaklı olacak. Öğrencilerin, dili gerçek anlamda kullanmak için dil becerilerini geliştirmelerine yardımcı olacağım. DELE dersleri için öğrencilerin iyi derecede İspanyolca bilmesi gerekir ve onları testin yapısını bilmeye hazırlayacağım ve iyi bir sonuç elde etmek için gereken temel becerilerini ve alt becerilerini çalıştıracağım.

English lessons (ONLINE) - English lessons (ONLINE)
FR - Hi, I'm Lucie and I would be happy to help you learn English, whether it's from scratch or to improve your knowledge. I love getting my students to speak since I think practice is the secret to learning a language and improving knowledge. I always structure my classes according to themes based on real life (how to present myself, how to make an appointment, to go shopping, to go to the doctor, English at work, etc.). We will see together grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. If you are intermediate, we will also do text lessons. We will put both grammar and vocabulary into practice. EN - Hi, I'm Lucie and I would be glad to help you learn English, be it from scratch or to help you improve. I love to make my students speak since I strongly believe that practice is the key to learn a language and to improve your knowledge. I always structure my lessons according to subjects based on daily life situations (how to introduce yourself, how to make an appointment, shopping / grocery, going to the doctors, professional language, etc). We'll go through the grammar, vocab, and pronunciation. If you're intermediate, we'll also do some lessons about reading comprehensions. We'll put both the grammar and vocab in practice.

Abolaji Abdrahman
This is an Arabic class where students can learn speaking, writing & reading. It's also a class where Quran and Islamic Studies are taught.
Hello! My name is Abolaji Abdrahman, from Nigeria. I have studied Arabic language (including reading, writing, listening and speaking skills). I also studied Quran & it's sciences, Tajweed, and other Islamic studies for more than fourteen years. I have studied Arabic from the International Open University and Arabic Institute. Currently, I'm also an Undergraduate student of Islamic Studies Education in the University of Lagos, Akoka. I also study under the tutelage of Sheikh Raslān from Egypt. I am a tutor of modern standard Arabic, classical Arabic (the language of Quran and Hadith) and colloquial Arabic ('āmiyyah). I love teaching Arabic because it is a very important language of Islam. Prophet Muhammad S.A.W said we should love Arabic language because: he is an Arabic, the holy Quran is in Arabic language and the language of the paradise dwellers is Arabic. I also love teaching Arabic language because it is the fifth most spoken language in the world. It is the official language of 26 countries including 5 of the wealthiest countries in the world. And it's sixth most spoken language in the world. Learning such a language will avail you to the discovery of most interesting cultures in today's world. It will also look good in your resume. With Arabic language, you'll become a polyglot and you will be able to adapt to the environments of Arab. As a Muslim, with Arabic language, you'll have thorough understanding of Quran and Sunnah. I have been tutoring Arabic and Islamic Studies since 2014 both online and offline till date. I tutor the learners between the ages of 5 - 80. The focus of my instruction is on all the important skills of the language (reading, writing, listening and speaking), grammar and vocabulary development. With these, you'll be able to intermingle with Arabic speaking people in any Arab environment you find yourself and of course, you'll have yourself prepared and fit for any formal exam. I am also certified to instruct in the memorization of Quran, the sciences of Quran like different versions of Quranic recitation (riwāyāt), the exegesis of Quran (tafsīr), e.t.c I have syllabus and materials for tutoring Arabic efficiently within a period of six to twelve months. I'm well experienced in tutoring with these books: ➡️ I love Arabic ➡️ Lessons in Arabic language ➡️ Nūrul bayān ➡️ Iqrā' qirā'tī ➡️ Qā'idāh Nūrāniyyah ➡️ Qā'idāh Makkiyyah ➡️ Qā'idāh Baghdādiyyah ➡️ Arabic in your hands ➡️ Tuhfatul Atfāl ➡️ Exegesis of Ibn Kathīr e.t.c I also have experience in teaching English language and Philosophy. Learning English language helps in developing ideas and communicating them. I would be glad to be your tutor in this journey, choose me and you will not regret it. See you in my class! I have 7 years of teaching experience. I'm a certified Arabic and English teacher. I have TESL and simplified Arabic certification. My teaching method is philosophical, experimental and persuasive. My teaching approach is simple to complex.

Nida
French born and raised Tutor able to assist students from the age of 4 to 18
I was born and raised in France and moved to England at the age of 16, which means I completed my Brevet des Colleges in France including 1 year of Lycée. I have previous experience teaching students as I volunteered in a primary school back in 2013. I am able to help students improve their French, enabling them to become more confident in their speech as well assist them in any homework or proofreading of work. I am very flexible in terms of how the lesson will go, as I believe there is no one specific way of learning as everyone has different abilities and learning capacities.

Self-Esteem & Resilience Building Program - Leading to Better Grades, Better Mental Health & Better Future Prospects
A step-by-step tuition program that: Builds self-esteem Increases resilience Improves wellbeing Improves communication Improves study skills Resources provided include: -Mentoring -3D animation videos to explain concepts -Worksheets -Other supplementary materials This program has been turned into a workshop and will be delivered at both Oxford and Cambridge universities for first year students. Every student needs assistance to rebound after the pandemic and lockdowns. I have the expertise to get students back on track. I have tutored students from the most prestigious schools in the country as well as students internationally. Some of the students I have worked with have attended world renowned institutions like Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard & MIT. I have delivered talks at schools on student success and have authored four books on topics such as productivity, time-management, self-discipline & confidence. I have founded the first online personal development academy for teenagers (Nexgen Teens) based around a holistic approach to learning called The Nexgen Method which I created. I also create wellbeing & mental health resources for young people at schools and universities. My role is not only in preparing students for the future but it is giving them the confidence to shape it. My objective is to inspire, motivate and cultivate ambitious young students who have the ability to identify and fulfil their aspirations. I combine five interlinked components that, if worked on in tandem, can drastically change a students life for the better and aid them in becoming the pioneers of the future. These 5 strands are: 1) Mindset 2) Wellbeing Management 3) Study Skills 4) Life Skills 5) Leadership Development I place a special emphasis on personal development and this is what makes me different. I believe it is possible to equip students with the mindset and skillset to radically alter their lives for the better. My instruction goes beyond this by including study skills such as note-taking, memory improvement techniques, speed-reading, and effective revision into its program. These skills will stay with pupils and enlighten their entire academic tenure. Finally, my role is also about offering guidance to students in terms of their current issues, academic future and potential career paths. My educational system is a result of years of lessons I myself learned progressing through the academic arena all the way to university level. In addition, it encompasses all the research I have conducted in self-improvement, effective study skills and successful leadership. These methods have been tested and proven successful. I hope to impart this knowledge to the next generation and watch them do great things with it. Yours sincerely, Ash

Albanian Tuition for English Speaking Students by an Albanian Native speaker
I am a native Albanian speaker that will be able to teach you everything you want to know, boost your confidence and help you with your accent in Albanian at all levels. Albanian grammar can be very tricky and hard, but together we will make it as easy as possible! I started teaching in Albanian about 3 years ago and I also do a part-time translation job. In addition, I always offer help to translate from English to Albanian or vice versa to Albanian family and friends. Most of my students are Albanian children that are raised in the UK and do not speak Albanian fluently, so their parents make sure to contact me, so I can teach them and I have had amazing results! In addition, partners of Albanian natives contact me, so they can communicate better with their spouse and the rest of the spouse's family, or even try to slowly - slowly teach their newborn children!

Christophe
French: written/oral expression, grammar, conversation
Do you want to start learning French but have never learnt it before? Or maybe you want to perfect your understanding of French grammar, or your capacity to express yourself clearly, spontaneously and with confidence in French? Or work on pronunciation, perhaps improve your accent and learn more about French culture? I can help you with all of these, and not only because I was born and raised in France: after getting my Master's Degree in Lingustics and Anthropology from the School for Advanced Research in Paris - at the time I was also teaching private classes of French and English to high school and university students - I moved to the UK and studied theatre at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. There I worked on the skills any speaker needs to communicate clearly and convincingly: diction, voice projection, etc. These two approaches - linguistics, and theatre work - give me a strong foundation from which to help any student learn French. So jump on: we'll build a learning program tailored to your needs and make sure that the lessons are both dense and fun.

Maria
French, affordable and for all levels and purposes!
For all levels, for both children and adults, and diploma preparation. All aspects of the language would be targeted during the lessons, emphasizing those desired by the student (ex: conversational, grammar) Depending on the level and the method of study will be adapted to each student, with outside-of-class follow up. The classes will be conducted in either English, French, or both, once again depending on the needs and the level of the student. Classes focused on the reinforcement of the language can also be organised, focused on specific topics that the student is interested in, which will allow the student not to lose the language and to develop further their knowledge of lexicon in the specific area. In what concerns diploma preparation, the lessons will focus on the particularities of the tests (timing, response format, lexicon, etc).

Emma
French OR English Conversation and Learning Classes
The aim of my classes is to focus on conversation as I truly believe that it is one of the most effective techniques. Depending on the level the classes would vary from reading to pronunciation to oral understanding. I am originally french but have been studying in English since the age of 14.

Explore the diverse cultures of the Arab world, and learn their language
It’s easy to fall into the trap of trying to learn Arabic by transcribing words instead of learning the alphabet first. Think about how we learned English back in school. First, you learn your letters, then you form those letters into words, then you learn how to form sentences, and then you learn more about proper syntax and grammar. Taking shortcuts will only slow you down. The best way to learn a new word is to see it, hear it, write it and speak it, so combine those activities as much as you can.
