About Me

I am a happy, social and organized teacher. I break down grammar in easy, comprehensible parts for the student. Once the students gets a hold of the grammar or parts they struggle with, we apply the grammar in a variation of exercises. I guide the student to self-improvement. We also also work on listening, writing and speaking skills.

Education

I have three Master Dregrees from two Universities: A Master in Communication Sciences and a Master in Management from the University of Leuven (Belgium) and a Master in Intercultural Communication from the University of Valencia (Spain).

Experience / Qualifications

I have over two years experience as a private French and English teacher for students of primary and secondary school, greatly improving their results and their enthusiasm for studying languages as a whole.

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.

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!

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

French private lessons by university graduate in Letters
French private lessons are for students wishing: - consolidate their bases in grammar, othograph - improve their language skills (allophone students) - improve their speaking skills (conversation classes) -profect the written expression - ECR exams - prepare for the written examinations at the end of the studies (maturity, certificate of completion) - help with the writing of works of maturity (or other works of end of studies), of dissertation - work on argumentative texts - acquire a method to analyze literary texts - fill gaps - improve their spelling - prepare for oral exams (maturity, compulsory leaving certificates) - learn how to perform bibliographic research For help with writing: the goal is above all to acquire effective tools. Students will learn how to structure their ideas, argue in a coherent (and convincing) way and enrich their vocabulary. For the corrections of end of studies work: so that the meeting with the student is at the most profitable, I ask him to send me his writings before the meeting. Apart from my presence with the student, any course involves a preparation time before and after the lesson, including the work that I correct. My goal is to design an individualized course, so I take the time to write detailed comments on corrected work or tips to ensure maximum success for everyone. For example, an editorial correction can easily be the subject of a detailed commentary of 4 typewritten pages. For adults (FLE): In order to optimally prepare the first ones, I take the initiative to inform myself in advance of their objectives / expectations. Whether to practice speaking in everyday life, the professional world or to practice oral presentations, I prepare either PPT or technical sheets in advance that I send by mail ( after booking on the website). The other alternative is to make a PV of the course that I send (or that I print). Giving importance to keeping a written record on the one hand to better memorize the topics covered, on the other hand to better assimilate the spelling. Of a general nature, a concrete situation that responds to the learner's needs is the starting point. From this situation, I address the essential grammatical points.

Classes are built around oral communication to enhance the interactivity of learners. I adapt my classes, be they of support or improvement or other, to the needs of the students, thus to reach their objectives in terms of comprehension of oral / oral production, and comprehension and written production. I have several years of experience in teaching, and a training in pedagogy, as well as a master's degree in translation and interpretation and in French literature (Lettres Modernes).
