Jack
Learn English for all levels of experience from 'Hello' to 'Goodbye' and everything in-between
Hello, my name is Jack, a native English speaker originally from Manchester, England. I have experience teaching English as a second language both online to students in China.And in schools in Italy. I have a diploma in International Business Management from Northumbria University, and studied abroad in Sweden and Portugal and therefore know how important and daunting learning a language can be. I specialise in teaching English as a second language. My aim is to be the lessons fun and engaging. Depending on what you want to learn we can focus on grammar, sentence structure, building vocabulary of a particular topic or start at the basics learning phonics. If you would like support and tutoring on homework or topics you are studying in school I can support students with this and help them achieve in school. I can also teach Business English and help you prepare for a presentation or interview or help with your studies. My class would be perfect for either adults or children wanting to improve their oral and written English skills. Each class will be personalised to your needs and abilities with the first class used to evaluate your level and how we can best use further classes to improve your abilities and see results.

English for professionals (refresher, fluency, conversation ...)
***** My availability varies according to the slots reserved by the pupils / students. To gain efficiency, I will send you a link to my "google agenda". You will be able to position our sessions more quickly ***** Hello, I offer you my expertise and experience to (re) upgrade you in English. I can intervene at the following levels: - School: * (primary school: initiation) => Cambridge tests 'Starters - Movers - Flyers' & others. * (college-high school) => remediation / upgrading in grammar + other language activities such as Oral / Writing Comprehension or Continuous Speaking / Interaction) - Superior (CPGE, IEP prep, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First Certificate, Advanced Certificate ...) (Preparation for tests such as "Tremplin-Passerelle-Passerelle2- Ecricome" ...) (English for Interns in medicine ...) (Linguistics / phonology / didactics for the English CAPES ... or other competition like the CRPE) - I accompany and have accompanied many adults who needed to be / become truly successful in speaking / writing in English as part of their professional activities (fluency, accent reduction, grammar. ...) or as part of resuming studies. Note that I am not this young student who had a good mark in the Baccalaureate or this other who is supposedly bilingual. I am a linguist by training and author of a textbook in this capacity. I have been teaching as a teacher in the National Education since 1995. Teaching cannot be improvised. It is not an activity that we do "like that". I offer you the fruit of my expertise and my experience as well as the perspective of an educational professional who knows the system perfectly from the "inside". By the way, did you know that to have 10/20 in the Baccalaureate, it is enough to have level A2 (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd year) so I let you imagine the despair of students who are starting higher studies and who learn that they will have to obtain at least 750 in the TOEIC! (the equivalent of level B2!) to see their diploma approved. 2 tips for students: "your TOEIC / IELTS score, it is from L1 that you must prepare it" "if you want to be able to write - English read, understood and spoken in your CV - well it is also from L1 that you must train yourself to speak English, to read in English and of course to write. * Daily monitoring possible via the internet: to learn modern foreign languages, it is always more profitable to work a little each day. It is possible to consider placing slots of 15 or 20 minutes of intensive work on one type of activity several times a week. (See the "memorization" video in the 'Surfonsdoc Orléans-Tours' channel on youtube) -> Look for "debbinghaus curve" on google. * Each course is prepared according to your personal needs. Feedback is always given at the end of the session. * One of the fields in which I specialize is "phonology": intonation, word stress, connections ... In short, everything that relates to oral grammar. If you are tired of being immediately spotted as the man in the video "the i rabbit (you will find it in a few clicks on youtube)) See you soon! Please do not hesitate to contact me for further details.

English for beginners , learn to speak english with me via webcam
English is a West Germanic language that was first spoken in early medieval England and is now a global lingua franca. Named after the Angles, one of the Germanic tribes that migrated to England, it ultimately derives its name from the Anglia (Angeln) peninsula in the Baltic Sea. It is closely related to the Frisian languages, but its vocabulary has been significantly influenced by other Germanic languages, particularly Norse (a North Germanic language), as well as by Latin and Romance languages, especially French. English is the third most widespread native language in the world, after Standard Chinese and Spanish. It is the most widely learned second language and is either the official language or one of the official languages in almost 60 sovereign states. There are more people who have learned it as a second language than there are native speakers. English is the most commonly spoken language in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, Ireland and New Zealand, and it is widely spoken in some areas of the Caribbean, Africa and South Asia. So as you can see we widely need to speak english in nowadays , it's necessary once you are abroad and don't speak the language of the country . Let's start together to learn english , step by step we'll achieve to highest result. I am experienced french teacher , but I also teach english for beginners , armenian , russian and dutch for beginners . I am waiting for you my lovely students
