I am a native English speaker (from London), offering language classes tailored to your needs. I am TEFL-certified, and have lots of experience teaching both adults and young learners at all levels.

Perhaps you are looking to improve your business English for a new job? or you simply want to travel more in English-speaking countries? perhaps your kids are in need of some help with their homework or exam preparation? I will always adapt my classes so that you can make progress in the most efficient way possible.

I also have a PhD in biology and loads of experience writing and editing academic-style English. If you need help with your undergraduate, Masters, or PhD thesis, don't hesitate to get in touch.

About Me

I am passionate about helping others to improve their English. Originally from London, I'm a formally trained teacher of English as a foreign language (TEFL), and I've spent time abroad teaching students of all abilities.
In parallel, I work as a biology researcher, and recently completed a PhD at the University of Lausanne.
My language classes are based on flexibility - each student has strengths and weaknesses. The key to learning fast is to quickly identify these and to work hard on the tricky parts! This may require grammar exercises, writing emails, full-speed conversation, or reading aloud to perfect pronunciation. We'll choose the material together.

I love playing music and going to concerts, spending time in the mountains hiking, rock climbing and snowboarding, and I enjoy discussing all kinds of topics from art to politics to cooking to movies.

Private lessons in languages and methodology of work
Passionate about languages, I am convinced that learning a foreign language, or even working more thoroughly in one's mother tongue, is a great wealth in terms of openness and self-awareness. It is also a very valuable tool for learning how to organize your thoughts and structure your ideas; what we all need in our daily lives. Holder of a Master in Sociology of Communication and Media and Journalism (University of Friborg) and a Master of Arts (University of Lausanne), I offer private courses entirely based on the needs and expectations of the person. The goal is that the use and learning of the language brings something concrete, especially in terms of work methodology. I teach French (school or foreign language) and English at all levels and to people of all ages.

Ksenia
English
My goal is to teach the whole person, which means, the cognitive, affective, and behavioral dimensions of the human being. The film “The Wizard of Oz” is a wonderful allegory for what I want my students to learn. An effective teacher is like the wizard who must help each individual appreciate the potential that resides within all of us – the potential to make the best use of our mids, hearts and those behaviors that can make the world a better place.

Shirley
English and Japanese lesson, Support for English homework
I specialise in tutoring language classes. I have a Master's Degree in Teaching of English as a Second Language and currently pursuing my PhD in Science of Education. I have also lived in Japan for 6 years and I have learned Japanese for two years in the university. Therefore I can teach Japanese for daily conversations. Owing to the fact that I speak 7 languages, I believe I understand the joy and struggle of language learning, which makes a good partner to learn a new language.

Hello everyone ! I am 29 years old and I would be happy to offer my support to children / young adults in language learning, my passion since always. Italian-French, I spent several years abroad during my studies to strengthen the knowledge of foreign languages.

(JW Goethe) I like to share my passion by giving children the opportunity to learn the foreign language from the discovery of the country's culture through games, videos, songs, interactive books, what else? We will start a journey together! And for those who have to study or revise literature, grammar, lexicon or improve oral communication I will also be happy to provide my support !! Contact me and we will discover together what is hidden behind a language.
