Joshua is helping me read Great Expectations. He is very helpful. He is very punctual too.
Joshua is very knowledgeable and patient and has good control over how he allocates his time. Today I had my first lesson and he was very well prepared and organized. Joshua is competent, professional, and methodical. I am looking forward to learning more about English literature. Highly recommended!
This class is for anyone who wishes to practice or improve their English speaking, listening, reading and writing abilities. The class will focus on the practical, everyday use of English, with up-to-date, real-world material (such as recent news articles) and coursebooks. If preferred, the class can be strictly conversation. However, the usual process will involve one-to-one tasks, understanding vocabulary and grammar, and periodic progress reviews.
This class is for anyone writing creatively in the English language, whether in poems, fiction, or essays. The class will focus on drafting and redrafting, themes and devices, editing, composition, rhetoric and metre, among other topics. New and experienced writers are welcome, without regard to level of skill or experience.

Get learning Maths, English and Science up to GCSE level
I specialise in tutoring science, maths and English (GCSE and ESL) all subjects are taught up to GCSE level or lower depending on child's age. My goal is to keep students challenged, but not overwhelmed. I assign homework after every lesson and provide periodic progress reports making sure the parents/carers are involved in the learning of the child and to track their progress too.

Corinne
English: pronunciation (British or American) or conversation. NO grammar lessons.
I have facilitated workshops and given classes throughout my career all over the world. English pronunciation is essential these days because English is spoken everywhere and all the time. I followed specialized training such as the verb tonal method, Feldenkrais or mental coaching. We are therefore going to work in a slightly different way by combining articulatory techniques, movement, rhythm, intonation, warming up of the jaw and tongue, stretching of the neck, neck and shoulders to arrive to very fast results.
