Lessons are offered for general studies students, prospective science journalists, those wanting to become radio producers, or just people wanting to know how new science might affect their lives.

Come and join me either to explore a topic of your suggestion, or for an overview of the newest science. This can be for students, professionals or for anyone who loves knowing things.

About Me

I love teaching English because I think communication is important for everyone. I love teaching about science because I believe it affects the whole of our 21st century society.

A major regret I had when I was traveling the world was that I could not speak directly to all the people I met because I did not know their languages. That was because sadly I find it difficult to learn other languages myself (I know a little French and Swahili) but I have always loved the subtle ways in which English adapts to places and times. I love science too because it is an international language.

I would like to invite you to come and have fun exploring communications with me.

Education

CELTA from LAL Torbay UK - 2017
MSc (merit) in Science Communications - Imperial College London UK 2014
BA (hons 2:1) degree in English, UCNW Bangor UK - 1980
Post graduate diplomas in film, animation, web technologies, distinctions, Liverpool University UK - 2003

Experience / Qualifications

When I taught English for 3 years at an International secondary school in Nairobi my pupils were from many nations and cultures.
I have written, directed and produced science documentaries for governments, NGOs and international funding organisations. During this time I was head of film at an international research organisation, providing communications for science research projects.
I have also designed and produced interactive science displays for museums, written and illustrated children's books for Macmillan Education, and worked as a journalist and cartoonist for the Cheltenham Chronicle newspaper UK.
I approach English as an important key to modern global communications, and provide a fun and challenging environment for learning. I assign homework on request, play games, work with dictionaries and on-line information sites, and tailor lessons to student needs. Whatever your goal, join me in an exploration of English language within English culture.
I believe in the importance of clear communication, whether it is between people, communities or nations. All my life I have been a professional communicator, working for example as a secondary English teacher in Africa, a journalist in the UK, a science communicator making documentaries for international agricultural research organisations across Africa and Asia, and as a radio producer for clients such as the BBC World Service. I am now quite old (nearly 60) although I do not feel old. I am actually really excited about returning to teaching, which I love, in order to help people with communication through English. I am a qualified teacher for English as a foreign language (I have a CELTA) and although I am always strict and organised, I believe that language is fun and I love to laugh. I look forward to meeting you for a fun and useful journey through English.

Mark
Real Teacher Holder of Education, author of textbook (language & phonology) 23 years of experience offers neck
* Training linguist and author of textbook as such. => I am not a student in L1 who had a good grade in the Baccalaureate. I am a practicing, qualified teacher and holder of National Education. Teaching can not be improvised. This is something I feel I do well with 23 years of experience. I remind parents that to have 10/20 to the Baccalaureate, just have the level A2 (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd) so I let you imagine the despair of engineering students who must get at least 750 to the TOEIC! It's the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course gives rise to a detailed report. * In-depth knowledge of the European Framework. (A1 => C2) * Work of language activities. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, links ... The grammar of the oral. * Adaptation to all levels: => College - High school: beginner, false beginner ... => Post-baccalaureate: TOEIC preparation, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Oral and writings of the grandes écoles such as ENA => Oral and written business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...) => Engineering school: preparation for TOIEC.

Sandra
American Native English Teacher - English Lessons for Children and Teenagers
Hello students! My name is Sandra. I am a native English speaker from New York State. I have a Bachelor's degree in Childhood Inclusive Education (Grades 1-6) from the State University of New York at Fredonia. I currently work at an international school in The Hague, and I teach private online English classes and private English classes to children in The Hague. I have been teaching ESL (English as a Second Language) to children ages 3-16 for 4 years. I also have experience teaching English to a group of adults, and 3 years of experience working in elementary schools in New York and international schools in Serbia. I can provide classes to children and teenagers. I can help with improvement of speaking, pronunciation, reading, listening, writing, grammar, etc. My aim is to create a positive and enjoyable learning environment for my students. Assessments, progress reports, and additional homework can be provided to my students. For children or teenagers who need a tutor, I am available to help with test preparation, studying, homework, or further advancement in English. Vital learning tools I regularly use in my classroom for children include educational games, activities, songs, and storybooks. Visuals and interactive hands-on learning are important to encourage students to engage and actively participate in their learning. For children, each lesson is aimed towards learning a topic such as food, animals, sports, emotions, and more. I provide the learning activities for class such as the worksheets and games created by me. I incorporate reward charts with stickers and positive reinforcement as well. Based on my experience, I have learned to adjust my teaching style based on different students' needs, cultures, socioeconomic backgrounds, and learning abilities. I hope you can join my English lessons! I can provide my resume or reference letters if requested. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Valentin
ENGLISH course - become fluent in English, communicate in English without prejudice
Actor of formation having lived abroad (London and Toronto), I love English and I would like everyone to know how to speak it! There is indeed a delay in France with respect to English, which is remembered is spoken worldwide and is the first language of communication! And this comes mainly from the lack of confidence in the oral. That is why with you I will work above all on the ease and the confidence but also on the pronunciation and the rhythm.
