English Tutoring by a certified TEFL teacher from London

As a non-native English Proficiency Speaker (C2), I am fully familiar with the difficulties of learning English as a second language and as a student I am familiar with the hardships and learning progress.
I have been certified as a TESOL CERTF teacher and have had experience in giving lessons in a class of 15 students at summer language schools or 1to1 lessons!
My focus during the session is to establish the target language and focus on familiarising it to the students. The class duration is 60 minutes and involves targeting the students goals but including the student's needs.
I give out homework because it is my believe that 'Repetitio est mater studiorum'- repetition is the main key to making a progress in learning!
I understand that learning a non-native and unfamiliar language can be overwhelming thus I try to take the class sessions slowly, including the repetition of the main problem until it is understood, however, I do like to encourage my students to push themselves to a new challenge.

The classes are taught solely in English, since that is the target language!

Extra information

I am a 21 year old student at Royal Holloway, University of London.
I am currently on my year abroad in Brussels in order to improve my French because I am a language student as well!

About Me

I am a student at Royal Holloway University of London. My field of study is European and International Studies (French) and I am currently on my year abroad in Brussels. I am an intern at the European Parliament at the Language Unit where I get to work in the translation process from English to French and vice versa.
My passion is Environmental Change and its connection to political actors, more specifically I am very interested in the maritime law and creating the binding international law or observing organisation that will control the international waters and seas. Furthermore, I take great interest in immigration induced by the environmental problems, socio-political and economical hardships.
I would say that I am a very easy going, friendly person even though I seem very strict and unapproachable at first!
I love good, positive atmosphere and therefore I like to have it during my class, so that the learning process becomes fun and motivated rather than scary and dull.

Education

BA Hon. European and International Studies with French, University of Royal Holloway University of London 2020
TEFL Cert, Trinity College University of London 2018
IELTS Language Proof Of Proficiency (C2) 2016

Flexible English Tutoring for all age groups following Individual Methodology (also SAT and IELTS)
Hello! My name is Audri and I am a second-year student pursuing a Bachelor of Business Administration degree at KU Leuven. I have followed the British curriculum throughout my school life and English is my first language. I have 4 years of experience as a private tutor and 1 year of experience as a professional English instructor specialising in grammer, reading and writing skills. I worked with IELTS and SAT participants during this time. The aim of my classes is to improve spoken and written English for all age groups.

In case the student is participating in tests such as IELTS or SAT, we will draw up a lesson plan according to test format. To make things fun for both of us, classes will be as interactive as possible :) Bonus: you get to enjoy learning from someone with a great sense of humour :')

Creative Writing
I am a writer, translator and PhD in literature and arts. I believe that act of telling and especially doing it in writing is not only one of the essential ways of expressing onself but is also a conscious contribution to one's life&wellbeing. The way I am giving creative writing involves references to narrative theraphy as well, and is called bookperformance. It has several ways to adapt and apply the person who wants to discover the strength of act of reading, telling and writing; beauty and power of words when they are read out, thought, spoken out or written. I guide you in English, French or Turkish. And, the writing process could involve all the other languages that you want to or need to express yourselves.
