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

Santiago
Clases virtuales conversacionales en inglés para todas las edades y todos los niveles
Hola, Mi nombre es Santiago y estoy ofreciendo clases virtuales de inglés individuales y personalizadas para mejorar tanto su comunicación oral como escrita. El enfoque principal de mis clases se centra en desarrollar una comunicación del idioma inglés de manera fluida y estructurada ya sea para preparar exámenes internacionales, incluyendo el TOEFL y el FCE, o como para poder comunicarse adecuadamente en el ámbito profesional, o para reforzar y mantener el conocimiento previo de este idioma. Soy Licenciado, graduado en Florida Gulf Coast University en los E.E. U.U. Habiendo aprendido inglés desde chico en el Ivy Thomas Memorial School y vivido año y medio en Tailandia, seguido de 4 años en E.E. U.U. adquirí gran conocimiento y fluidez del idioma inglés. En Tailandia estuve año y medio estudiando arte en la comunicación y esto me ayudó a prepararme para mis estudios en E.E. U.U. Tuve varias clases de comunicación, aprendiendo técnicas de cómo hablar mejor usando no solo nuestras palabras, sino también nuestro cuerpo para ayudarnos a hablar de manera más natural, tranquila y sin ponernos nerviosos si nos trabamos o nos olvidamos de lo que queríamos decir. Durante mi carrera en los E.E. U.U. estuve constantemente escribiendo ensayos para mis clases, además de tener que exponer proyectos delante de mis profesores y compañeros de clase. Al mismo tiempo, estuve trabajando en la universidad y luego de graduado trabajé durante un año, principalmente teniendo largas conversaciones por teléfono con personas de todo el país. Hoy en día la habilidad para comunicarse en inglés es imprescindible y los voy a preparar para que puedan cumplir sus objetivos. Podrá ser, el de estudiar en el extranjero, irse a vivir a un país de habla inglesa, mejorar la comunicación en el ámbito profesional o practicar para no perder el nivel previamente adquirido. Si lo que estás buscando es mejorar tus conocimientos del idioma inglés, yo te voy a ayudar. Mi metodología es simple. Cada persona es diferente y adapto el contenido de mis clases a las necesidades e intereses de mis alumnos. Todos aprendemos de distintas maneras y en tiempos distintos, por eso es que diseño mis clases de manera individual.

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!

Interactive Skype lessons: Russian and English languages for everyone
Hi everyone and nice to meet you! I have been teaching English and Russian 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 in 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 English 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.

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.
