Business English for Professionals - At Home or Via Skype

Learn English from a native English speaker. I was born in the UK, though having been raised internationally, I have learned and mastered 2 other languages myself (French and German) and have found that the workplace can be one of the most challenging places to be when you do not speak the language everyone else speaks.

Even if your company operates in German or French predominantly, often times there will be clients or other international offices where English is required. There is nothing worse than being in a meeting, or on a conference call, or even getting a coffee and not understanding the conversation.

Let me help you to master everything from phrases you may not recognise to small talk. Anything you are having trouble understanding, you have the comfort of knowing I can further explain in either German or French when necessary.

About Me

Based in Vaud, I first moved to Switzerland 20 years ago, having grown up internationally. I have picked up French and German at a very high level, and am able to conduct business in both languages, often passing for a native given I only have a slight accent in one of those - see if you can guess which :)

Now I am looking to pass that knowledge on to anyone based in the area looking to improve their language skills. I have many years of tutoring experience at school level, but am looking to teach business French, English and German to anyone who is keen to learn.

Education

Lancaster University - BA(Hons) Business Administration, minors included Marketing, Accounting & Finance, Operations Management, French & German.
High Schools

International School of Geneva - La Chataigneraie
Munich International School
Berlin International School
International School of St Georges - Clarens, Switzerland

Experience / Qualifications

6 years of Banking & Finance Recruitment Experience in the Geneva region, working in English, German & French
3 years of Sales Management experience
Moving to a new country can be quite a daunting and difficult change. While you can get by in most situations in English, in other situations, it simply does not suffice. This class is for anyone looking to pick up French as a second language. The focus is to learn expressions and phrases, as well as pronunciation and how to speak without the dreaded 'foreigner' accent. From there we can build a foundation on which you can build. Having first moved here 20 years ago, I have grown up in Switzerland, my early childhood was spent in Germany, meaning I can teach people whose mother tongue is either German or English. They say practice makes perfect, and that has certainly been the case for me. So that is what I will do with you, practice with you and guide you until perfect.

Teacher with great experience and particularly motivated, I have always advanced my students and brought them successfully to their exams.

Mia
Theater Course and Public Speaking Coaching
I give French lessons and English lessons for children and adults. With 5 years of experience in teaching and professional acting, I bring a different approach. The courses are more focused on the oral part, but I give written exercises to do at home to strengthen your written production. You send me your texts, I correct them and send them back to you. Some students do them and others prefer to focus only on the oral part, and I adapt.

Sofia
Greek & ancient Greek language lessons. Also Special needs and braille language
We will make the lessons both orally and practically. All the exercises are in the appropriate level, starting with the lowest level and continue with the highest. In each lesson the student will have some exercises as homework. In the end of each month we will have a small repeat!! I am also a braille tutor for both Greek and English!

Maths, physics and French lessons for students up to gymnasium and French for seniors looking to improve their proficiency level.
I help people from primary to gymnasium improve their proficiency level in french at writting and speaking. And because i have a background in Engeneering studies i can also help in Mathematics and physics. Same goes with adults willing to learn french and for those who needsto start with the basics in English

Inès
Private lessons in Chemistry, Bio, English and Maths (general)
I quickly noticed that the problem often comes from understanding the exercises given rather than the course itself, so here's how I like to proceed: I always start by first making sure that the principle of the course is understood by focusing on the points that block, and then we can start looking at the exercises, given by the teacher, that pose a problem. The goal is that at the end of the rehearsal course, the student has in his hands cards with the different methods used to solve all the possible types of exercises, especially those requested in the exam. I myself take care of preparing these sheets during the rehearsal course in order to summarize all the methods acquired.

Live teaching of English and French as a foreign language - ESL & FLE lively classes
The course is personalized according to the learner's objectives. Whether it is in order to improve one's knowledge and skills, to take an exam for example to enter a school, or to prepare for a job interview or simply for use at work, the idea is that the content is tailored to the needs of the individual and focuses on the essentials to be as effective as possible. It can be a course focused on conversation, pronunciation or writing. Or all of that! The class is designed according to the learner's objectives. Should it aim at improving your knowledge and skills, passing an exam, trying to get into a particular school, or at preparing for a job interview or simply for the daily use at work, the class will be tailored to meet your needs, as efficiently is possible. We can focus on speaking, listening or writing. Or all of these skills!

Mes élèves sont vraiment formidables! La connaissance inspire la confiance. On apprend ensemble.
"Suis tes rêves." Vous comprendrez bien aprés 10 heures (niveau A1 et A2). Vous lirez. Vous parlerez bien (niveau B1 et B2). Vous écrirez bien. Vos objectifs et votre motivation sont la base pour trouver l'approche individuelle appropriée à l'apprentissage de l'anglais.

Mounia
Private lessons in natural / human language and science
The learning of the English and German language is done in a proactive and stimulating way, learning via the active way with simulation and exercise in order to obtain optimal results after a more or less short period of learning, through the grammar and vocabulary in order to learn the real language used by the English and German populations. Regarding chemistry lessons, learning through visualization with contextual settings and explanations accompanied by examples is necessary to fully understand. Teach the student to get into the habit of doing his exercises and to understand the statements so that he is able to do them alone.
