About Me

Hello! I enjoy teaching English because I believe that languages help us unlock the key to truly understanding people who live in places where those languages are spoken.

I am an experienced teacher who also continues learning other languages myself. I have taught English in several countries on three different continents. So I appreciate that my students will have different needs based on where they live and what they want to accomplish with their language skills.

I adapt my teaching style to what my students want/need: do you need a serious coach to prepare for the TOEFL or another exam? Or do you need a fun, laidback lesson to help you learn more about how to use American idioms in everyday conversation? I have experience in both of these situations and everything in-between.

Education

Here is a list of my degrees and English-teaching qualifications:

Bachelor of English: University of San Diego

TEFL certification: US Peace Corps (three month training program)

MBA: University of Arizona - Global Campus

Experience / Qualifications

20+ years of experience teaching ESL to teenagers and adult learners
- Courses taught in the past at middle schools, high schools, universities, and private businesses
One of the best ways to improve your language skills is to learn new vocabulary while discussing cultural topics. It helps you put context around the words you are learning so you can effectively utilize that vocabulary in daily conversations at work or with English-speaking friends. This class is tailored to the student's particular areas of interest. Possible topics include: - American idioms - American food culture - American sports (baseball and American football) - American cinema - American TV - Specific American culture from a decade: 1920s/30s, 1940s, 1950s/60s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s
One of the most effective ways to prepare for these exams is with a native speaker. We can focus on one area of the test for a single lesson... or even just last-minute conversation preparation. Another option is to work together to prepare for each area of the exam over 5 or 10 lessons together. The TOEFL iBT ® test has 4 sections: Reading, Listening, Speaking, and Writing. During the test, you'll perform tasks that combine these 4 English communication skills, such as: read, listen and then speak in response to a question. listen and then speak in response to a question.
English is a language that is spoken around the world. What will set you apart from others? Your capability to use a diverse vocabulary with a good accent. In these sessions, we will discuss topics of your choice: sports, culture, business, etc. and we will work on both your pronunciation skills and enhancing your vocabulary. What do you want to learn about today? It can be a new topic each lesson or we can use several lessons to take a deep dive into one topic.
Being able to utilize advanced English in the workplace is a critical skill in today's world. Whether you want to increase your vocabulary and general comfort level with English, or intensively work to improve your language skills related to your specific content area at work? This is the class for you! Possible topics include: - expanding everyday workplace vocabulary - finance and accounting - human resources - operations - sales - management lingo - contracts and negotiations - technical support / IT - other (we can discuss your specific needs)

As a 21-year-old engineering student, I offer to give English lessons (I have level C1) and mathematics for students up to second class. Also, I can help any student with homework in any subject, up to second too.

Jhen
Learn and get help with English language speaking and writing, Biology, Neuroscience and Psychology.
As a scientist and researcher, I have experience teaching various subjects in science to high-school and university students. I have also worked as an English language tutor for over 5 years and love being able to help people to better use the language (whether for communication or for writing for school and work). Being able to be comfortable with the English language is a huge advantage not only for everyday communication but also to be able to communicate professionally. I especially specialize in the use of the English language for presentation and writing in the sciences and social sciences. I adapt my classes to each of my students - depending on their needs and goals. So whether you need help with conversational English or with your essays, scientific articles, theses, or dissertations - I can provide a specialized plan for you, and will do so taking into your field of study. Additionally, I can help you proofread and edit any writing you have. I am also a neuroscientist by training and can provide classes and help with your courses in Psychology, Biology, or Neuroscience. Additionally, I also tutor for Mathematics, Physics, and Engineering Sciences for high school and university students (in both English and French). My teaching philosophy for these is still the same- I adapt and prepare every class to each individual student's goals and needs.

Romane
Homework help, courses in all subjects at college level and svt at high school level
Hello, my name is Romane, I am 20 years old and I am a 3rd year student in biology, ecology and biodiversity at Toulouse III Paul Sabatier University. Before returning to university I completed a bac S specialty svt obtained with a mention Bien. For 3 years now I have been giving private lessons to some college students, I have already given math lessons to a 3rd year student, support lessons in all subjects to a 4th year student and I have provided support to a 5th year student. I am also giving tutoring to first year undergraduate students (Biology) this year. I would therefore be able to give support courses in all subjects, but also to give more in-depth courses in certain subjects: maths (up to second level), svt (until terminale). During the lessons I adapt to each student, to his pace, his needs and how he likes to work. I already had a precocious pupil, therefore hyperactive this year and a dyslexic pupil. So I know how to adapt perfectly to everyone. With the students, I watch his lesson with him, I help him to write cards if necessary, I see if he has understood correctly and then I question him. Then we apply his course in exercises where I ask him questions. I hope I can help your children in their learning, Please contact me if you need more information, Roman

Currently a master's student in law and holder of an economic and social baccalaureate with distinction as well as bilingual in English, I am able to provide private lessons at all levels in this subject. I have already given many private lessons in this language and have therefore acquired a rather effective "program" for a fairly rapid progression based on a lot of oral to facilitate the learning of the language
