Improve your English with qualified, American, English teacher

Would you like to improve your English? Are you a beginner? Elementary? Advanced C2 even? I have over 15 years experience teaching in universities, training centers, schools, and in private classes both off and online. I have a bachelors of linguistics from the Sorbonne, and the TEFL certificate. If you need help preparing the TOEFL, IELTS, TOEIC, GRE, GMAT, FCE, or any test in English, I have years of experience helping students prepare these and other tests too.

All my materials are part of the learning experience and are offered free of charge. I use books (a lot!), videos from the internet, news articles, etc. I can help you immensely, regardless of what part of the language you're improving. If it's vocabulary, writing, speaking, reading, pronunciation, accent, listening, etc.; or if you need help with some particular field, such as Business English, or some register of English in particular, it makes no difference to me. Again, I have extensive experience in ESL and am comfortable with both group and private lessons.

I currently offer classes online via Zoom or Skype and give and correct homework.

In addition to the package options given, I also offer 20 hour packages at a reduced price. All payments are accepted through PayPal or Bank transfer, and proof of purchase is given for packages in the form of a bill.

About Me

Hi, my name is Justin, I come from Seattle, Washington, in the US. I've been a teacher for over 15 years. Learning with me is simple and fun because I'm patient and enjoy meeting new people and helping them get better at English. I also use a lot of different sources! (A lot!) I have countless books that will definitely help you, as well as internet references for video clips, news articles, and more.

I've got extensive experience in ESL, and am now expanding my profile online. You can check out my site at theenglish.school, if you like.

To give you an example of some of the profiles I am currently working with:

One of my students is named Lola, who is a 16 year old student who needs help improving her ability to write and analyze literature and poetry. Another student is named Gaetan, who is an architect and who is learning English because he's preparing to adopt a child from Canada. Another one of my students is named Alexis, who is a senior in high school and is preparing for an entry test in a university in France, part of which is in English. I currently work with several students and as you can see get to know them and remember who they are. My classes are all personal and I care if you're getting something out of it versus just showing up. I have worked with top journalists, police officers preparing missions abroad, diplomats, doctors immigrating to Dubai and the US, dentists, lawyers, etc. There isn't anyone in particular I won't work with.

Education

Bachelors of Linguistics from the Sorbonne. TEFL certificate.

In my "licence" I learned all the basics of linguistics: Semantics, syntax, phonology, phonetics, grammar, lexicography, etc. I've also studied briefly a variety of other languages, such as Ancient Greek, Latin, Vietnamese, and some east European languages too. The degree was a lot of fun and much harder than I had thought it would be.

Getting my TEFL was really easy as I had already mastered the grammar of my language long before, and had been training as a teacher too. It nonetheless taught me the importance of preparing classes, working in different environments, and understanding important techniques in teaching, such as making the most of talking time, eliciting, and optimizing the environment so that students get the most out of the experience both in and outside of the classroom.

Experience / Qualifications

15 years working as English teacher and Adjunct Professor in graduate schools, universities, training centers, businesses, as well as one on one over the internet or in person.

Stavie
Online or at-home English tutoring for Beginners or Advanced users
Hello! My name is Stavie and I've been using English ever since I can remember! Because of this, I am interested in helping others discover, learn, or improve their English skills. Have you just started learning English and you need someone to help you with this journey? Do you already have a good level you just need someone to practice with? Would you like help with an interview or presentation in English? I can help you learn a language from scratch or help you practice so you can use the language at work or in a personal setting. In our first lesson we will have a casual talk, ideally in English so that I understand your level, and we will discuss your needs and objectives in order to set the goals of our course. As a Communications professional, I have spent the past six years studying and working primarily in English. Being a bilingual English-Greek speaker, I am attracted to teaching because it not only allows me to discover new abilities and develop them but also provides me with the opportunity to share my knowledge with people who are keen on learning something new. My experience allows me to offer courses for both teenagers and adults. I can also offer support with homework in English for Elementary, Secondary and High-School Students. I am looking forward to meeting you and being part of your journey in learning English! In case you have any questions before booking a course with me, do not hesitate to contact me.

Entertaining List of Irregular Verbs: How to befriend the Beast.
Irregular verbs can be daunting at first. Although the best way to learn them is to use them often, memorizing is also part of the process. What are the best ways to get familiar with them? Step 1: Look up the list. Now you have the BIG SCARY LIST at your disposal. It's somewhere there on your desktop or it's printed on your desk. Step 2: Ask yourself why you need to know the list. The teacher said so. Irregular verbs are verbs that are rebellious and are always misbehaving. They refuse to abide by the rules of grammar unlike their siblings.. the regular verbs which receive -ed for both Past Tense and Past Participle. You need to get used to their forms so that you understand the mythical creature with 12 heads ( Tenses). The list is here as your armour. I put my armour on.. (Unstoppable by Sia) Short Infinitive go Past Tense went Past Participle gone To go (baddie) like liked liked To like (conformist) learn learned/ learnt (British) learned/ learnt (British) To learn (2-faced *inserting insult* ) Step 3: Give up at the sight of the numerous verbs and listen to Sia. Or even better play this guy's song on Youtube; it's a masterpiece: 6 hours Irregular verbs song – Learn 80 common Irregular Verbs in one song. Step 4: Now that the whole house is cleaned and you know how to rap in five languages, you can come back to irregular verbs. On a second look, you notice that they follow patterns too. There are plenty of groups and forums that have the same concerns as you do. You can follow their tricks or come up with yours. Gangs of Irregular Verbs: 1. Verbs that remain the same in the present, past and past participle. ( identical form) 2. Verbs that are the same in the past forms, but not the present. (2 identical forms in the past) 3. Verbs that end in -en in the past participle. Step 5: Now that you have dissected the Big Scary List, it looks ten times smaller. You can use them in sentences and create short stories which have been proved to be more efficient mnemonics than lists. Step 6: Have fun and enjoy learning while learning how to learn. Step 7: Follow my example and take a break too! Cheers!
