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.

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 teach French (school or foreign language) and English at all levels and to people of all ages.

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.
