    Why choose an English native speaker with over 20 years teaching experience? If you study with me, you'll see rapid development in your English. Lessons are personalised, fun and engaging (no books). Meetings take place online and are based on a highly-developed, verbal approach that stimulates the student's awareness and encourages the student to think, speak and learn in real time.

    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

    Camille
    English Grammar Support / Baccalaureate Preparation
    Student in science, English is for me an indispensable tool: all scientific articles are written in English! I myself had the chance to take private English courses which allowed me to have an extremely solid foundation in grammar and this way to get a score of 20/20 in the bac of English! I currently have a level C1- "International Professional Masters". So I propose you during the courses that we will have together to work on the basics of English grammar! Indeed it is the grammar and syntax errors that are the most penalized during exam corrections! And once these bases are acquired, the writing and the oral expression will be much more fluid! I will of course be able to adapt to the level of the student (beginner as advanced) and offer him exercises in accordance with his difficulties.

    Parler bien le russe dans 1 an et 2 mois est possible:)
    Intéressé par le russe? Vous avez déjà un peu de patience? beaucoup de passion? de curiosité et d'amour pour l'apprentissage? la seule nécessité dont vous avez besoin c'est de trouver un bon enseignant? Vous êtes au bon endroit :) PS je trouve que c'est remarquable, que mon premier elève débutant 14 mois après notre premier rdv sait tenir une bonne conversation en russe bien difficile et n'a pas du tout besoin de passer en français pour me faire comprendre son idée:) C'est un miracle? Ou juste le resultat de notre travail mutuel?!:) Depuis lors ma méthodologie d'enseignement est améliorée par la chance de rencontrer des elèves venant de différents coins du monde (du Japon au Pérou) littéralement de tous les horizons professionnels, ayant des intérêts, des rêves, des loisirs, des besoins différents. Alors, on bâts des nouveaux records ensemble?:) Salut Ma Chère et Mon Cher, Future et Futur Elève je m'appelle Halyna et ma langue maternelle est le russe. Et en ce moment, je cherche des personnes qui peuvent partager avec moi leur passion brûlante pour les langues :) Je ne vais pas vous apprendre ces phrases de "robot", ma véritable intention n'est que de vous faire aimer la langue, notre culture, nos traditions, de vous faire comprendre notre logique, façon de vivre, de voir les choses:) Et pour atteindre cela, je prépare soigneusement mes cours en m'inspirant de différentes sources comme des manuels de russe comme la langue étrangère (tous les niveaux de A1 jusqu'à C2) des livres de grammaire, des vidéos, des chansons, des articles de presse, des modèles d'examens, je fais moi-même des petites cartes "surprise" ou j'imagine des petits jeux pour faire mes elèves réviser et renforcer des connaisances reçues et bien sûr, pourquoi pas un peu de littérature russe. Apprenons quelques citations merveilleuses du poème de la grande poète Marina Тsvetaeva "ou pourquoi ne pas partager quelques lignes magnifiques de la création de Gogol " Les âmes mortes " et bien sûr, si vous n'avez peur, perdons-nous quelque part sur les étangs du patriarche de Boulgakov dans "Le Maître et Marguerite":) Je voudrais beaucoup que mes élèves considèrent mes cours comme un plaisir où ils peuvent recevoir des connaisances solides en s'amusant:) Je serais reconnaissante et heureuse si vous pouviez partager avec moi votre temps, vos intérêts et votre manière d'apprendre d'autres langues et peut-être nous pourrions découvrir ensemble de nouvelles méthodes d'apprentissage qui seront efficaces:) N'attendez pas et écrivez-moi, ouvrons ensemble cette porte mystérieuse de la langue russe!:) PS PS Je parle le français et l'anglais donc je peux vous fournir des explications nécessaires en ces deux langues, cela ne me pose aucun problème:) Mes Chers Etudiants, J'espère que j'ai mentionné tout ce que j'estimais important de savoir sur mes cours et sur moi. Mais bien sûr, si vous avez des questions ou si vous souhaitez savoir plus écrivez-moi immediatement :) Il me fera plaisir de répondre à toutes vos questions :) Et pour finir, permettez-moi de conclure avec cette grande citation: "La force d'une personne réside dans son intelligence et sa langue". Bonne chance avec vos projets, quel que soit votre objectif :)poka poka, see you very soon;)

    Math Tutoring (GCSE A-level/ VWO/ SAT/ IIT/ GRE/ GMAT)
    I am specialized (>5 years of experience) in tutoring math for school (any level, but preferably higher level), including competitive exams such as the SAT, GRE, GMAT, and the IIT-JEE. This class is aimed to train high-school students undergoing VWO or an IB curriculum.

Personally, I have succeded in the IIT-JEE and GRE tests and am currently working as a Quantitative Researcher of stock markets, and therefore analytical math is also a part of my job. The classes could be rigorous or lenient depending on the student. There will be periodic progress reviews and tests and I'll make sure that the student achieves his desired goals.

    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.

    Milena
