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

Lahian
English course per student having an exchange in the USA
Hello, I give private lessons in English. During my lessons, we will first determine the weak points of the student. Thereafter, we will try to remedy this by the use of oral and written practical exercises. The course will be mainly based on the targeted shortcomings of the student, but also on the intensive practice of speaking and listening. Finally, I find that self-confidence plays a key role in the practice of a language, and I would try during my classes to reinforce it. Being a student in management / economics, English is a very important language for me and the smooth running of my curriculum. I had the chance to quickly master this language since my childhood and to be able to perfect it by spending a year in the United States. This exchange year has brought me a lot and has strengthened my knowledge of the Anglo-Saxon language and culture. I have already given many courses to close people (Family, friends, ...) in view of obtaining various certificates or diplomas. diplomas: - ICL DIFFERT - CESS (Obtained) - CONSTANTINE HIGH SCHOOL - CERTIFICATE OF AMERICAN ATTENDANCE (Obtained) - HIGH SCHOOL FRANCISCO FERRER - LOGISTICS MANAGEMENT (In progress) Professional experiences: - Five Summer Internships in an American multinational in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg Other: - Christian mutuality - certificate of animation

Graduated in communication and inveterate globetrotter, I give lessons of English and French for small (from 3 years old) and big in Brussels. In teaching, I prefer rigor while having fun and I always start by reviewing the basics to make sure they are solid. Then, I continue with the course on a wide range of topics to allow maximum diversity and autonomy in the language. I like motivated and rigorous people but I also like that it stays cool to avoid the chore sensation. My goal is of course to see you at ease as soon as possible in the language.
