It is time for your own English Convesational Coach

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I became a TEFL English Teacher back in 2008. After 12 years of teaching all levels and all sorts of groups, I've become very aware of what works and what doesn't ... Trying to learn English grammar rules before being able to understand the language, it will always be hard work for the learner and also very frustrating. No matter what country you are born into, first, you learn how to speak and then you learn the rules. Acquiring additional languages should not be any different.
I am sure you have spent a long time learning English but, how many times have you had the chance to simply see how well you would do through a normal English conversation as you would do with a friend? Not many right? ...
My coaching sessions are designed to constantly generate conversation between you and me. We will talk about everything and anything. I will catch those little mistakes you will make here and there. We will fix them on the spot through mental gymnastics, pills of wisdom, reminders, and everything else I have in store for you. You will do most of the talking. Good teachers are the ones that let their students speak, don't forget that.
Your confidence, your fluency, and your accuracy will forcefully improve with time. I will make sure I introduce to you (in due time) verbs, expressions, and vocabulary essential to your everyday English. A Win-Win!
If you are up for the challenge please make sure you have at least a low intermediate level to be able to follow a simple conversation. If your level is lower than that, you will have to be very patient with yourself and conversations could be slower at the beginning.
I am super patient, a great listener, and I have a passion for English. I will be more for you than just an English teacher. I will guide you, encourage you, and basically offer you that "safe pool" where you can polish your speaking skills in a safe, private, cool environment to let yourself speak without worries :)
My accent is a neutral British English accent and I can also help you improve your pronunciation.

Extra information

These sessions to practice and improve your spoken English are designed for people who want and need to take their English to the next level. Although the ad says that the classes are via webcam (there was no other option), in our sessions the webcam is not necessary and we will not use it. In fact, to facilitate your daily English practice as much as possible, our sessions may also be by phone. Good on the way home or to work, in your moments of rest and even in those of boredom. It is that you can simply speak in English whenever you can and keep improving.
One of the most difficult tasks when speaking a second or third language is the telephone. If you are able to function in the language without the help of the visual part of your interlocutor, you will be able to face any conversation in person. Practice makes perfect and "the more you talk, the better you will speak" and that is undeniable ...

About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Hi, I'm Maia. I trained as an English teacher with the best and got my TEFL (Teaching English as a foreign language) certificate in Dublin, May 2008. I became a teacher because I really wanted to help others speak this language and help them speak it. well.
Frustration with the traditional method of language learning (which I personally have also suffered) has been the catalyst for this program. Many of us are tired of having to learn the rules of a language without even knowing how to speak it (I am currently learning French and the same thing happens to me). Understanding a Present Perfect or the Past continuous in English when it is difficult for you to talk about basic things becomes an impossible mission and one is heartless because he thinks it is null for languages. The reality is that when you were little you learned to speak without having to know that it was the Past Perfect. You learned through “trial and error”. Mom or dad or the teacher gently corrected or repeated correctly what was wrong, such as; Mom, I broke the door. While you were learning Spanish, you didn't need explanations about how you spoke or when you did it ... you just spoke it. Stop trying to invent the wheel. It is time to re-learn to speak as it has been done since the beginning of time.
That is what I want to show you in these sessions. You don't need metaphysical explanations to speak English well. Yes, grammar is necessary but it does not have to be a tostón and the vocabulary can be learned in an entertaining and fun way through the real practice of it, as well as the grammar rules.
You need three things to speak English and together we will take care of each one of them but through the real practice of the language where you will be the main protagonist.

SPANISH LESSONS FOR KIDS. PLAY & LEARN. Spanish for children.
I work with various materials created to meet the needs of each child; videos, music, games and stories. I do not use textbooks or exercises in which students have to mechanically repeat a certain model. The materials that I use in the classes are colorful, cared for and promote the autonomous learning that they will need in their future use outside the classroom. I believe that each student has his own learning rhythm and must be respected. With a good teacher everyone can reach their goal.

Tutoring in Spanish as a foreign language with a native speaker.
I think the title is quite self explanatory :D I'm used to work with all kinds of levels and ages. I'm convinced that a teacher is not only a source of information, but also an inspirer and a motivator. I will make our meetings interesting and amusing, and I will adapt fully to your goals. One never end learning a language. I am studying three myself. This helps me to understand the struggles and difficulties of the process. You will have all my patience, sympathy and encouragement. Being able to communicate in other languages is an amazing and satisfying experience. It is also a valuable and practical skill. It will open you to a myriad of possibilities, friends and cultures. Spanish in particular, which is spoken in a big portion of the Globe. What are you waiting for? Let's start!

For the DELE and Cambridge assessment lessons the students must have a good command of the language because I will prepare them to know the structure of the tests while they practice and develop the main skills and sub skills needed to have a good result. İspanyolca derslerim beceri ve dilbilgisi odaklı olacak. Öğrencilerin, dili gerçek anlamda kullanmak için dil becerilerini geliştirmelerine yardımcı olacağım.

My lessons are student-centred, flexible, and fun! Lessons are continuously adapted to suit the individual; every lesson is structured based on the needs of the student. The focus of each lesson will initially be based on a student needs assessment carried out at the start of your course, and adapted based on progress and changing needs. Learning areas identified may include: * Refining your pronunciation * Practicing everyday language and conversational skills * Exam preparation, focusing on specific grammar and/or vocabulary * Reading comprehension and practice * Writing correction and practice * Job interview preparation Lessons are conducted in English, since this has shown to be the most effective way for students to learn a foreign or second language. It is recommended to book a course of at least 20 hours.

🚀EVERY CHILD IS A MATHS GENIUS | British Tutor 🇬🇧
.. [British Maths Tutor] ... When I was a young child, I believed I was not a mathematical person. It wasn't until I met an amazing teacher at age 15 that I discovered my mathematical genius and my life was changed forever. I'm eternally grateful to that teacher. My teacher knew that self-image and self-belief is the key to unlock your child's mathematical abilities. Everyone is good at maths, but we all have different styles of thinking. Bad teachers teach every child the same way. My job is find your child's style of mathematics and allow him to discover that for himself. When he discovers that, he will begin to enjoy the beauty and power of mathematics ...and then you will see as the grades begin to soar. 👉Click the blue "Contact Oliver" button above and lets discuss how we can unlock your child's mathematical talents! 😊

English Private Tuitions (Adults and School Students) + IELTS
I am specialized in teaching English to adults and students in international and private schools. For adults, this class offers a general English practice or IELTS test preparation depending on what the student is looking for. The lessons will first start by evaluating their abilities in the four main skills (Speaking, Listening, Writing and Reading) then we can work together to plan the weekly lessons accordingly. As for the school pupils, the student shall present his/her previous test papers and results to identify his/her weaknesses and strengths. The second step is to follow the school's book(s) and curriculum (unless the parents wish otherwise). The classes consists of test revision, homework assistance and lots of practice. Any communication occurring during the class must be in English. The class usually consists of one student.

Mimi
English Conversation Elementary and Pre-Intermediate in Breda / English Conversation Intermediate
English Conversation lessons focus on improving your speaking skills. In the lessons different topics will be discussed and debated in an interactive way. This way you can improve your English fluency or vocabulary. You will have the chance to practice English with an experienced and qualified teacher.To join me you don't need anything but your presence! I am an experienced teacher and I speak four languages. I hold a bachelor's degree in teaching of Italian language and Art History from Ljubljana University in Slovenia. Originally from Slovenia I have lived and worked in four different countries because of my husband's film post-production professional. Among other things I lived in London where I taught movement therapy. I moved to the Netherlands five years ago and have been learning Dutch. So I am perfectly aware of the challenges people face when they try to learn a new language as adults. I think that my personal experience can benefit others who are struggling to improve their language skills. My experiences as a teacher have given me the opportunity to interact with a variety of student populations and engage them in learning. In the Netherlands I taught Italian at Buas University - Tourism and Management and English Conversation at Gilde Baronie Apart from my teaching experience I am also a performer, illustrator and movement teacher.
