English Language Tutor - Online (Groups - max. 4 students)

I'm a TEFL Certified (ITQUK) freelance EFL/ESL tutor. I’m also a highly skilled Finance Professional with extensive experience in the International Development sector.

My First Language is English, and I’m fluent in Afrikaans. I have intermediate level skills in French, and I’m at beginner level in Spanish, Portuguese and Arabic (MSA).

Since 2020, I've taught more than 240 lesson hours to students at all levels. My students come from diverse backgrounds and age groups, and are located in various parts of the world, including Canada, Taiwan, France, Tunisia, Senegal and Belgium.

My lessons are student-centred, flexible, and fun! Lessons are continuously adapted to suit the individual; every lesson is structured based on learners' needs.

The focus of lessons will initially be based on a student needs assessment carried out at the start of your course, and adapted based on your progress and changing needs throughout the duration of a specific course. Learning areas identified may include:

* Practicing everyday language and conversational skills
* Exam preparation, focusing on specific grammar and/or vocabulary
* Reading comprehension and practice
* Writing correction or practice
* Job interview preparation

Lucie
English lessons (online) - English lessons (online)
Hello, my name is Lucie and I would be delighted to help you learn English, either from scratch or to improve your knowledge. I love getting my students to speak since I think practice is the secret to learning a language and improving your knowledge. I always structure my classes around real-life themes (how to introduce yourself, how to make an appointment, how to shop, how to go to the doctor, talk at work, etc). We will see grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation together. If you are intermediate, we will also do courses on texts. We will put both grammar and vocabulary into practice. Please note that all my classes are online (Skype or Google Meet).
