Certified TEFL Tutor for Business English or Coversational English

I specialise in preparing students for English exams such as BULATS, IELTS, TOEFL and TOEIC. Listening, reading, writing and speaking.

I customise and adjust my courses according to each individual.

My ultimate goal is to keep students motivated and engaged, and not feel overwhelmed. I can speak from experience, as I have had to learn (and still have a long way to go) French. A very complex language! So there is hope, English can be fun and we will get you speaking, reading and writing - whatever your goal is!

About Me

I am a motivated, passionate and patient person. I have been teaching English as a Foreign Language for the past 5 years in France. I absolutely love my job!

I tailor and customise each course with each of my students. I find what interests you have and base my courses around that. I find that it is easier to understand and remember information if you can relate to the topic.

I have a true understanding of how daunting it can be to learn a new language. I was born in South Africa (my mother-tongue is English). I lived in London for 15 years and Edinburgh for 5 years. Listening to different English accents and dialects was quite an adjustment, but really good fun. After having lived in the UK for 20, I had an opportunity to move to the French Riviera. An opportunity, I obviously, could not refuse!

The problem was the language. As beautiful and magnificent as the French language is, I have found it to be an incredibly complex langauge to learn - certainly one that I have NOT mastered by a long shot, but I am determined to speak it fluently.

Having experienced the complexities of aqcuiring a new langauge, I can certainly relate to the frustrations. So do not despair! We will work together to make English as fun, easy and enjoyable to learn.

I use many visuals, lots of practical exercises and revision!

Jack
Learn English for all levels of experience from 'Hello' to 'Goodbye' and everything in-between
Hello, my name is Jack, a native English speaker originally from Manchester, England. I have experience teaching English as a second language both online to students in China.And in schools in Italy. I have a diploma in International Business Management from Northumbria University, and studied abroad in Sweden and Portugal and therefore know how important and daunting learning a language can be. I specialise in teaching English as a second language. My aim is to be the lessons fun and engaging. Depending on what you want to learn we can focus on grammar, sentence structure, building vocabulary of a particular topic or start at the basics learning phonics. If you would like support and tutoring on homework or topics you are studying in school I can support students with this and help them achieve in school. I can also teach Business English and help you prepare for a presentation or interview or help with your studies. My class would be perfect for either adults or children wanting to improve their oral and written English skills. Each class will be personalised to your needs and abilities with the first class used to evaluate your level and how we can best use further classes to improve your abilities and see results.

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 ...)

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
