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.

English for beginners , learn to speak english with me via webcam
English is a West Germanic language that was first spoken in early medieval England and is now a global lingua franca. Named after the Angles, one of the Germanic tribes that migrated to England, it ultimately derives its name from the Anglia (Angeln) peninsula in the Baltic Sea. It is closely related to the Frisian languages, but its vocabulary has been significantly influenced by other Germanic languages, particularly Norse (a North Germanic language), as well as by Latin and Romance languages, especially French. English is the third most widespread native language in the world, after Standard Chinese and Spanish. It is the most widely learned second language and is either the official language or one of the official languages in almost 60 sovereign states. There are more people who have learned it as a second language than there are native speakers. English is the most commonly spoken language in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, Ireland and New Zealand, and it is widely spoken in some areas of the Caribbean, Africa and South Asia. So as you can see we widely need to speak english in nowadays , it's necessary once you are abroad and don't speak the language of the country . Let's start together to learn english , step by step we'll achieve to highest result. I am experienced french teacher , but I also teach english for beginners , armenian , russian and dutch for beginners . I am waiting for you my lovely students

Cours d'ANGLAIS - devenir fluent en anglais, communiquer en anglais sans préjugé
Acteur de formation ayant vécu à l'étranger (Londres et Toronto), j'adore l'anglais et j'aimerais que tout le monde sache le parler! Il y a en effet un retard en France quant à l'anglais, qui rappelons-le est parlé dans le monde entier et est la première langue de communication! Et cela vient principalement du manque de confiance à l'oral. C'est pourquoi avec vous je travaillerai avant tout sur l'aisance et la confiance mais aussi sur la prononciation et le rythme.

Shahnoza
English via Skype, convenient and in a comfy (your) chair; a lot of speaking and grammar
My name is Shahnoza, and I am offering English classes to everyone, whether you are a student who feels a bit self-conscious about their English or you are a grown-up who wants to broaden the opportunities and horizons. I always try to avoid formalities and make my classes (reasonably) informal and friendly. If you have (and with me you always will, I'll simply make you talk to me) some stories, I will gladly listen to them and help you develop your ideas. My goal is to make my students speak the language and understand why they should use this or that word. I believe that every person is a whole world and I would like to know this world and help my students show this world to people. Can't wait to work with you! :)

Callum
English Classes (Private or Group) and Proofing/Editing Services
CELTA-qualified native English teacher with 2+ years experience teaching kids, teens, students and adults from all backgrounds. I'm also a journalist and rMA graduate (Cultural Analysis) with a lot of writing and editorial experience. I've taught general English, exam preparation (Cambridge, IELTS) and academic English in the UK, Spain and Amsterdam. I'm young, smart and casual – I prefer informal classes with a lot of fun activities, video and popular culture. But I'm also a specialist in high level writing and academic skills. I can help most with writing at all levels! I offer structured 1-on-1 classes tailored to the student's needs, more informal conversation classes, group classes (up to 6), or proofing and editing services – let me know if you need help with cover letters, applications, university coursework or writing of any kind! Rates vary with type and class size (groups and conversation classes are cheaper than structured 1-on-1). The minimum price shown is for conversation classes – more structure and preparation of materials will cost more.
