Interactive lessons: Russian and English languages for everyone (both remote and face-to-face)

Hi everyone and nice to meet you! I have two years of teaching experience. I like interactive methods and teaching through songs, poems, and cinemas. I also give grammar exercises but do not overload you. Promise that lessons will be fun, easy-going and productive. We are going to use modern materials in the classes which I prepare myself.
My own studies were in English so I always practice language myself.
If you are interested in studying Russian or English languages I can teach them both.
I am a self-organized, hard-working,​ and communicative person. Ready to work with ​any age.

Experience / Qualifications

I have been teaching Russian for two years in Helsinki both to adults and children. I like the interactive methods and teaching through songs, poems, and movies. My teaching method is natural when you learn by listening and speaking mostly. I also give grammar exercises but I won’t overload you. Promise that the lessons will be fun, easy, and productive. I prepare the materials for classes myself, so you have only to come to a class with a positive attitude! I receive very positive feedback from my students!
I'm a self-organized, hard-working, and communicative person. I'm ready to work with any age, both remote and face-to-face.
Ready to come to your location.

Valeria's interactive and discussion-based method is exactly what I was looking for, as using the language is the best way to progress, even with limited knowledge. She is very patient and encouraging.

IB English literature and English B for pre-IB, IB1 and IB2
I am a student at the University of Warwick in Politics, Economics and philosophy. I have taught French and English for 4 years, at all levels for a wide age range. I can teach English in French, Finnish and Mandarin. I am currently a research assistant at the University of Aalto in the international Business department. Having graduated from the International Baccalaureate with 41 points, I understand how challenging it can be to find a tutor who will support you through these rough two years. However, by working together I am sure we can find a way to make this time a bit less stressful, while bringing you the grades you need!

English, conversation skills and test prep tutoring
English is an international language and it is never too late to brush up your conversation skills to chat with friends, for a job interview, to participate in meetings or pass a test to prove your language skills. I have a student-centred approach based on a mutual discussion about what goals you want to achieve and the duration to realize them. I give classes on an online webcam, but I am also flexible to travel to Helsinki and Espoo region if the need so arises. So what are you waiting for? Get in touch with me now and we will get a chance to work together. I also speak French, German as well as Bengali, an Indian language fluently and learnt several other languages. So I am particularly sensitive to the needs of students with multilingual and multicultural backgrounds. I also use music and theatre in my classes which makes them super fun and enjoyable.

Santiago
Online virtual conversational English classes for adults
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,

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

Private English Language tutoring for all levels and purposes.
I am looking for all sorts of students, who are willing to - build up a broad vocabulary - improve writing skills - improve conversational skills - improve listening skills - improve reading skills - improve grammar - get prepared for an exam/speech/job interview And also start from scratch! That’s the most fun part. I am open to working with children and teens, because I can understand them and their needs well, so I can always find an individual way of helping each and every one of them with all the attention and guidance they need! I give one on one, private classes. But I am also open to teaching for two-three students at a time and potentially organizing a little group of people to meet weekly and improve/ practice our skills as a collective.

English teaching for all levels! I can also teach Anthropology :)
I am a native English speaker with a BSc from University College London in Anthropology (so if you are interested, I can teach you something about that too!). I am living in Helsinki to do a Master's degree in social sciences, and looking to do some part time tutoring. I have previously worked as an online English teacher for kids and adults and volunteered with ESL classes in the UK. I have a TEFL certificate, and am able to teach focussing on a wide range of skills, including conversation or more specific grammar / writing skills. I also have a lot of experience working with children, as I have volunteered with youth projects in Greece and the UK, worked as a babysitter and as an English-language educator to a 5-year old child in France. I'd be happy to teach kids of any age!

Daniel
English tutor from Australia to help you or your kids get better at reading, writing and speaking
Hello, My name is Daniel and i'm currently living in Helsinki till about September. I moved over here with my Finnish girlfriend (who I have taught a lot of English to) from Australia, where I completed a bachelors in Business at the University of Sydney. As a native English speaker I can help you with speaking, reading as well as grammar and pronunciation. I can tailor make lessons from basic introduction moving more into advanced lessons.

Juliette
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
