English and Test Prep Tutoring (college admission or English exams)

I am a licensed, native-speaking English teacher from the USA. I have taught both in my home country and in many countries abroad, instructing native speakers as well as second language learners. I have a teaching certification as well as experience teaching both Math and Science in addition to English.
I have particular expertise with test preparation like the GRE, CAE, GMAT, CPE, TOEFL, and TOEIC, just to name a few. I recently had a student score 8 on IELTS and another score 1480 on the SAT. I have had students get accepted into prestigious institutions like Rotterdam School of Management, Purdue University, and Brooklyn School of Science and Technology.
I have also been teaching grammar and conversational English for many years now. I like to learn about my students' interests and hobbies, then bring in interesting material to work with
Though I care a lot about the success of my students, I also care greatly that they are enjoying my class. Learning useful skills and having fun are my top priorities :)

About Me

I am an American educator who has been teaching 5+ years. Although I am primarily an English teacher, I have actually taught a wide range of subjects, from Theatre to Math to Science to Music. I have taught in New York, California, DC, Taipei, Prague, and online.

When I'm not teaching I really enjoy the outdoors and the arts. I'm an avid hiker, backpacker, camper, and rock climber. One of my previous jobs was actually as an outdoors guide! I also love playing music and can play 5 instruments (though none too well). I enjoy theatre and performance too, having been an actor in the US.

I care a lot about the success of my students but I also care greatly that they are enjoying my class. Learning useful skills and having fun are my top priorities :)

Martin Menendez
ENGLISH AND SPANISH LESSONS: from beginner to proficiency level. Training for official exams, conversation tutor, practice exercises...
Hi! I am Martin Menendez, a bachelor student who is looking to teach either Spanish (my native language) or English (I'm bilingual: certified C2 English level) here in Prague, where I will be spending my year. I have experience teaching both languages, which I have been teaching for the last two years, and I offer lessons for any level! As a method, I dedicate the first lesson to more or less see the level at which the student is and therefore start developing a plan for future classes, what the student wants and needs and what areas we will spend more time focusing on. I do assign homework each week :) However, most important is having a friendly, close and personal environment where you see me as an equal and where you can ask anything you want. I also want to learn from you and this city too! I think communication is key and that is why I am available to message anytime any day. Flexibility is one of my assets since I am available from Wednesday to Sunday. Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions if you are interested!

High School Math, Spanish, English, Test Prep (SAT, TOEFL, FCE)
Do you want to be able to speak like a character from your favorite Netflix show? Do you want to be able to clearly present your brilliant ideas in classes or meetings, or fluently discuss your children's grades at school? Or maybe, you want to prepare for important exams like TOEFL and the SAT? Well, I am here for anything you want! As a multi-linguist - having learned 6 languages - I do know how to easily learn and teach languages, so the most important material you need to bring to class is enthusiasm :) Tailored lessons for your very own needs - General communication lessons can be informal and engaging with personal and exciting stories from me AND you! If you'd like to practice for interviews, presentations or business conferences, let me know the topics in advance so I can research and prepare for them and conduct formal conversation sessions. In case you want to prepare for an exam, I can recommend and purchase the necessary books or materials. I went to an International school where I have acquired high grades in IGCSE and IB mathematics, so if you are struggling with math, I can help you get an A+ or a 7 in those courses or in general mathematics. I also have been learning Spanish for over 6 years with a DELE certificate at Nivel B2, a level that allows me to attend university lectures in Spanish and I am able to understand the majority. If you would like to learn Spanish or if it is your second language at school, I am here for you.

Mark
Professor of National Education, author of school textbook, 24 years of experience.
***** Availability update made on 09/01/2020. Valid until further notice ***** I offer you my services in order to make you truly effective orally / in writing in English. If you have to use English in the course of your professional activity and you don't get comfortable with it ... If you are tired of being spotted immediately as French ... If you don't know still not when to use the present perfect / preterite .... I'm here to help you and make you progress. * Linguist by training and author of school textbook in this capacity. Note that I am not this young student who had a good mark in the Baccalaureate or this other who is supposedly bilingual. I have been teaching as a teacher in the National Education since 1995 and I can tell you that teaching cannot be improvised. It is not an activity that we do "like that". I offer you my expertise and my experience. By the way, to have 10/20 in the Baccalaureate, it is enough to have the A2 level (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd year) so I let you imagine the desperation of future engineers who must obtain at least 750 in the TOEIC! (the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course is prepared according to your needs. Feedback is always given. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, connections ... Oral grammar. * Adaptation to all levels: from college to post-baccalaureate through high school. => Post-bac: preparation for TOEIC, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First-Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Orals and writings from grandes écoles such as ENA => Orals and writings from business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...) Please do not hesitate to contact me for further details.
