Confidence in English and / or German

If you've lost confidence in English or German, want to start from scratch or want to perfect already present knowledge, I can help you achieve your goals, drawing on 20+ years of successful teaching.

I spent my childhood and teens moving back and forth between Germany and America (attending local schools) as a French citizen, so in addition to being a native speaker of both languages, I am also sensitive to individual concerns that can come up e.g. shyness, difficulty expressing oneself, etc. I have taught private students from all walks of life in Germany, France, Hungary, UK, USA, and now Finland, focusing on anything from run-of-the-mill tutoring to specific needs e.g. confidence in public speaking, social settings related to work, preparation for college / grad school.

My method is to motivate students by setting challenges that let them see their own success. Each country also has its own method of teaching and learning, which can greatly assist in acquiring language skills.

You will gain confidence, speak with ease, learn to speak as naturally as a native speaker and know the difference between their / they're / there at the very least.

Different rates apply, depending on what you are looking for. Duration of a class will vary according to your needs, so feel free to let me know what you are looking for, whether you're absolutely sure or just want to dip your toe in the water.

I teach in English, German, French, Polish or Hungarian

About Me

I am a Third Culture Kid currently living in Finland. My first proper memory of teaching is trying to acquaint my aunt with the English language by translating Dallas for her, with mixed results. Tutoring in high school went much better, and I realized that I enjoyed transmitting my knowledge to others. Grammar is important, of course, but my goal has always been to make the learning process as natural and close to real life as possible. It's easy to just open up a grammar book / guide and learn the basics, speaking is a whole other issue.

Because of the way I grew up, I can easily adapt to different learning styles students bring with them. My success is based on motivating students by building on what they already known, turning shy learners into confident speakers.

Santiago
Online virtual conversational English classes for all levels and ages.
Hello, My name is Santiago and I am offering individual and personalized virtual English classes to improve both your oral and written communication. The main focus of my classes is focused on developing fluent and structured communication of the English language either to prepare international exams, including the TOEFL and the FCE, or to be able to communicate properly in the professional field or to reinforce and maintain prior knowledge of this language. I am a graduate, graduated from Florida Gulf Coast University in the USA. Having learned English as a child at the Ivy Thomas Memorial School in Uruguay, and lived a year and a half in Thailand, followed by 4 years in the USA I acquired great knowledge and fluency in the English language. In Thailand I spent a year and a half studying communication arts, which helped me, prepare for my studies in the US. I had several communication classes, learning techniques of how to speak better using not only our words but also our body to help us speak more naturally, calmly, and without getting nervous if we get stuck or forget what we wanted to say. During my career in the US, I was constantly writing essays for my classes, in addition to having to present projects in front of my teachers and classmates. At the same time, I was working at university and after graduation I worked for a year, mainly having long phone conversations with people from all over the country. Nowadays the ability to communicate in English is essential and I am going to prepare you so that you can meet your goals. It could be, studying abroad, going to live in an English-speaking country, improving your communication in the professional field, or keep practicing so as not to lose the previously acquired level. If what you are looking for is to improve your knowledge of the English language, I will help you. My methodology is simple. Each person is different and I adapt the content of my classes to the needs and interests of my students. We all learn in different ways and at different times,

Stephen James
English and Music Tutoring with a Friendly Native Speaker
Moikka! I am offering English tutoring to anyone and everyone looking to improve their English language skills! I am a published writer with a strong history of academic writing. That said, I want to help you meet your own personal goals—be it improving your conversational skills, writing skills, or getting ready to pass those English language tests! Also, I understand quite a lot of Finnish which helps me to identify common mistakes native-Finnish speakers make. It helps me to better explain the logic of English from the perspective of a Finnish speaker. :) Additionally, I can offer lessons in piano and/or music composition (my main field.) For this, I can arrange a place for us to meet. I have open availability for teaching on most weekday evenings and during the day on weekends. So send me a message and let's grab a coffee somewhere and get to chattin'. I look forward to meeting you! :) Interests: Music, art, culture, humanities, politics, architecture, food, and pretty much anything else

Candice
Private lessons in English for all levels.
I offer English language courses for all levels. If I am asked for academic support (from primary to university), it will mainly be a question of reviewing, with the pupil or the student, the points of the subject which pose a problem to him (grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, etc.). If I am asked for a general learning of the English language, it will be mainly, but not exclusively, a learning by dialogues in English language, which will allow the student, as and when, to acquire vocabulary, understand grammar and fix linguistic structures in your head. I also offer oral conversation classes for anyone who wants to express themselves in English more fluently and improve their oral comprehension of the language. Serious guaranteed. The course is given by videoconference (Skype, Teams, Zoom, WhatsApp, etc.)
