    English Classes with a TEFL-Certified, Native English Speaker

    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 love music, mountains, and meeting new people. I've lived in the UK, Spain, and Switzerland. Fluent in French.

    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.

    Cours d’anglais/Professeur d’anglais avec expérience
    As Einstein said once: « Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think”, I believe that teaching is an opportunity to share, to give and to transform knowledge. The best way to do this is listening to my students’ needs and applying the modern and ancient techniques in the best way possible for each student. I have been teaching English for more that 8 years now to students of all ages (3 years old to 50 years old) and I still consider that we can always find ways to improve ourselves through experience and sharing. Comme l'a dit un jour Einstein: «L'éducation n'est pas l'apprentissage des faits, mais la formation de l'esprit à penser», je crois que l'enseignement est une opportunité de partager, de donner et de transformer la connaissance. La meilleure façon pour moi d'y parvenir est d'écouter les besoins de mes élèves et d'appliquer les techniques modernes et anciennes de la meilleure manière possible pour chaque élève. J'enseigne l'anglais depuis plus de 8 ans aux étudiants de tous les âges (de 3 ans à 50 ans) et je considère que nous pouvons toujours trouver des moyens de nous améliorer par l'expérience et le partage. Je propose mes services aux adultes qui souhaitent perfectionner leurs connaissances de l’anglais en vue d’examens ou pour accompagner un débutant dans sa découverte de la langue. Cours au centre ville de Lausanne, programme à la carte, en fonction de vos besoins.Plage horaire encore disponible : mercredi : 19.15-20.30 ou jeudi 19.15-20.30 Prix : cours privé : 75 min : 50- Cours semi-prive : 75min : 35-/pers Tel : +41 078 755 10 57 Mail : julia.trif.grana@gmail.com

    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.
