About Me

I'm a very relaxed, bubbly and open person who is (at least in my own opinion) able to get along with almost anyone. Having studied 3 other languages, grown up bilingual and experienced living in both Finland and England, I would like to think that I now also have a well-rounded approach to teaching and learning languages.

Things I value in life include new experiences, friends and family and a healthy dose of sarcasm when appropriate.

Education

I completed the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IBD) in the UK and recently graduated from Metropolia UAS as a Bachelor of Culture and Arts with a professional major in graphic design.

Experience / Qualifications

All of my education up until university has been in english. As part of the IB Diploma during 6th form I studied standard level English literature and at Metropolia UAS I wrote and published my final thesis in english.
Whilst living in the UK, I volunteered as a teacher at the St. Alban's Finnish School for 2 years and so I also have concrete experience of teaching bilingual children aged 4 to 13.

Become Fluent in English with Personalized Conversation Classes
I am an English teacher with two years teaching experience, offering conversational English classes for learners wishing to practice their listening and speaking skills. My classes require lots of speaking, which means you will practice getting into the flow of the English language. Our goal will be CLARITY, but we will also be fine-tuning by looking at grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation. Feel free to let me know if you have any specific problem areas. I am happy to create lesson plans based on these. I assign personalized homework based on mistakes that you often make in class. Painful at first - but excellent for your language skills!

Mark
Real Teacher Holder of Education, author of textbook (language & phonology) 23 years of experience offers neck
* Training linguist and author of textbook as such. => I am not a student in L1 who had a good grade in the Baccalaureate. I am a practicing, qualified teacher and holder of National Education. Teaching can not be improvised. This is something I feel I do well with 23 years of experience. 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.

I re-read, correct and translate your documents in these three working languages. 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. :)
