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 English, French and math
I offer tutoring classes in English, French and math. Having a very high level of English, I can help the student for his vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation. Since French is my mother tongue and has read a lot in my youth, it is easy for me to help the student understand the grammar and conjugation of French. I can also give math lessons up to the level of the orientation cycle. I have already given French and math lessons to young children who just needed to be told quietly their course by giving them concrete examples.

Elsa
Private lessons in Italian and English - Learn a language while having fun!
Hello everyone :) I am a 24-year-old Italian-French girl and have lived in Lausanne for a few months. I studied Modern Languages ​​and Literatures (English and French) at the University of Venice and Journalism at LSJ London. I am available to give lessons of Italian (my mother tongue) and English to students of all ages who will want to learn a language while having fun! Passionate about art, cinema and music, I always believe that the first rule to learn something is to do it while having fun! Songs, videos, excercises of different nature ... and a little grammar, anyway! I have already given private lessons during my university years in Italy and I look forward to starting again in Switzerland and trying to give you some of my passion for languages. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me. I hope see you soon, Elsa.

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.

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 give French lessons (school or foreign language), German and English at all levels and to people of all ages.
