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.

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

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'd be happy to teach kids of any age!

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!

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

Valeria
English for everyone, Russian and Romanian languages
Hi everyone and nice to meet you! I have been teaching English for a year and a half for children. I like interactive methods and teaching through songs, poems, and cinemas. I also give grammar exercises and practice oral skills but do not overload you. Promise that lessons will be fun, easy-going and productive. We are going to use modern materials on the classes. I also passed the IELTS exam and also can support for taking it. My own studies are in English so I always practice language myself. If you are interested in studying Russian or Romanian languages I can teach them both. I am a self-organized, hard-working and communicative person. Being a student at​ the University of Helsinki I am very open-minded​. Ready to work with ​any age.
