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.

Samuel
English tutoring and tutoring given by a bilingual French speaker
Work on course materials already in your possession, books, textbooks, DVDs, or songs, or the Internet, and progress, in a relaxed and cool atmosphere, whether spoken, listening, or in writing, on topics that you are passionate about or for which you have exams or tests. I personally studied management in English, then worked in international environments for many years. This language is part of my everyday life.

Natacha
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.

Maria
Private lessons in Arabic, Armenian and English (with TEFL - Teaching English as a Foreign Language certification) with experience
I am currently teaching private Arabic (classical/literary Arabic and Levantine Arabic dialect (spoken) and English lessons for all ages. Depending on the needs of each student, the sessions could be tailored accordingly. I am a master student in Design Research. I am Canadian of Armenian and Lebanese origin living in Lausanne. I speak 4 languages (English, Armenian, Arabic, and French). I have a certificate in TEFL with 120 hours of training to teach English as a foreign language. I was also an English teacher volunteer in "A Square" after-school tutoring center in Lebanon (teaching classes that consisted of approximately 10 students between the ages of 7 and 17).

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.

Laura
Italian :-) language & culture LIVING. Polyglot.
Italy has a lot of charm because it has a varied culture: its language, the Renaissance, the music of Opera, but also Laura Pausini or Bolognese sauce :-) Italian, graduated in Languages and Literatures (in this case I speak fluently French, English, German), I have professional experience in teaching foreign languages. My strong points: - being multilingual, I know all the good tips to get to really master a language (if I could do it you can too!) - I'm serious but I also have humor. During my lessons we never get bored - I am open to various solutions: I can teach you another language also at the same time (verbs in Italian and English at the same time? Compare their uses? No problem!) or even cook with you: Bolognese sauce ? Why not? See you soon !

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.

Mehdi
Math or Home English Course for Kids and Teens
I am a student at EPFL, I did my year of CMS and I am in first year EPFL in Communication Systems. I have the certification of the TOEFL (Test Of English as a Foreign Language) iBT with a score of 112. I passed my baccalaureate mathematical sciences with a mention Très Bien, a 19/20 in maths and a 20/20 in English . I like teaching classes to children and teenagers. My method of teaching English is to try to find a balance between learning the language in writing and orally, starting with the basics of the English language little by little to be sure student learns the language in a correct way. As far as mathematics is concerned, I try to find the gaps the student has in order to then help him to do his exercises and perfect his maths learning and finally make him love this very important subject.

Alaa

Graduate of a very good mathematics section and a Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English (CAE) with a grade A which proves a level C2 in English, finalist at the regional math Olympics for two consecutive years and currently a student at the EPFL. My goal is to help the student with my everything and to try to explain the course as easily as possible and to make it the most concrete so that his knowledge remains engraved throughout his studies. I also offer intensive help for exam preparation with exercises. For English I am ready and able to help in writing, communication, and listening for all levels.
