I am a qualified teacher of English and Spanish is my mother tongue. I graduated with a Master in Philosophy, a Master in Political Science, a Master in University Pedagogy (with distinction), and I am a doctoral student in Philosophy. I like the interaction with the students and the dynamics in my races. I have several interests and motivations (including musical composition and literature), so conversation lessons are my asset.

About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Graduate of a Master in Philosophy, a Master in Political Science and a Master in University Pedagogy (with distinction), I am a PhD student in Philosophy.
Having been an assistant and then a university professor for three years in the Universidad Nacional de Colombia and the Universidad Javeriana (Bogotá), I have always had a deep interest in pedagogy, which is why I pursued a master's degree in university pedagogy. In addition, my professional experience in Washington DC (as an instructor of history and political culture in an NGO) has strengthened my ability to teach students in a multicultural and multidisciplinary environment. My knowledge of English, French and Spanish has, moreover, play an important role in the consolidation of my multicultural training in that they gave me access to multiple means of information.

💬 Would you like to improve your conversational skills? 🗣 I am a Trinity and Cambridge exams specialist 🗣
Please bare in mind that my availability varies according to the slots reserved by the students. I started my career as an English language teacher in 2008 and quickly became very passionate about language learning. This culminated in a Masters degree in second language acquisition and a Certificate in teaching English to adults. ​ Before starting teaching online, I worked as a Spanish teacher as well as a Director of Studies for different summer schools in the UK. ​ During my teaching career, I have lived in Spain, United Kingdom and China. These have always been great experiences as they have helped me to explore my other passions of travelling and learning new languages. ​Are you looking for a qualified English teacher (British accent) with extensive teaching and business experience? If so, I would love to help you! While my classes are 100% in English, I can also speak Spanish and some Italian words. This gives me a real insight as to why students make certain mistakes, and how to best avoid them. I really enjoy teaching and helping people improve and grow in confidence. We all learn at different paces and in different ways. My job is to give you the tools to learn and enjoy the process. Are you ready?

English Conversation Classes + Business English vocabulary
I specialize in helping adults overcome the language barrier in speaking. I will help you get comfortable and familiar with English, by creating personalized conversation classes adjusted to your needs. As an English Studies graduate with four years of experience in language teaching, I realize how problematic speaking can be for language learners, that is why during my classes I focus mainly on this part of the language. If necessary, I will create materials, vocabulary lists and grammar activities adjusted to your needs as well. I will help you reach your language objective in the most comfortable and fun way possible!

Nguyen
General / Business English for all levels (all ages)
As a teacher, I always aim to create a fun and comfortable classroom environment for my students, as I believe that people learn best when they are relaxed and having fun. My students (usually aged between 5 to 60 :)) have a lot of opportunities to practice what they've learned (whether it's a new idiom or grammar structure) in-class through casual conversations or role-play activities. If you enjoy hearing random trivia about life in different countries (Vietnam, the UK, Slovakia, Belgium), or engaging in deep conversations about world issues, while learning new words and grammar structures, sign up!

Gaelle

I am a student of foreign languages and work daily with English. We can work on English grammar and vocabulary. We can also, if you wish, chat a bit in English to help you practice the language.
