Abdessamad
Darija(Moroccan Arabic), Arabic(MSA), Tamazight(Berber) and English for foreigners.
Hello everyone! My name is Abdessamad. I’m 25 years old and I come from Morocco. I was born in a trilingual family that can speak fluently Arabic (MSA), Tamazight (Berber) and Darija (Moroccan Arabic). I have a diploma in Entertainment and currently I’m studying sociolinguistics at the university of Ibn Zohr, in Agadir. Extremely patient and suitable for beginners, children and adults. I love teaching, as well as learning of course languages (currently, French and German) but not only. I like to talk about philosophy, literature, psychology sports, cooking and gastronomy, animals, outdoors activities and travels. I am a professional teacher but I was giving after school language courses to students of all grades from primary school to high school, at their place in Agadir and other cities around as a freelancer. I also have a great experience in teaching non-native speakers since my wife is French and I taught her Arabic from scratch. Besides that, I have lots of students from different spots of the world, some of them that I can call now friends. During the summer break, I’ve used to do entertainments in the hotels, therefore I had the chance to meet lots of people coming from different countries. So as an entertainer and a sociolinguist student who’s interested in learning other languages and about deferent cultures, I was proposing to give the tourists Arabic, Darija, and Tamazight lessons. I like trying new things with each student to see what works best for them. Engaging them in topics that they like to talk about, recommending movies, series, songs, book or anything that would make them more connected to the culture. With that being said, we all know that learning is fun. Or at least, it shouldn’t be so hard to learn and have fun. So, as an entertainer and a sociolinguistics student, I assure you that the experience is going to be fun, you will stay curious and keep coming back for more.

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.

English and Maths for anyone ! Welcoming with open hands!
Hi everyone! At the start of each class I will be seeing where we are at, and how we are feeling, and I will be asking for any improvements to make sure you’re satisfied. DON’T BE AFRAID TO SAY ANYTHING! Asking questions is the main thing for a successful future. I will be delivering revision notes at the end of each class as a recap and will be setting homework. Understanding that you have school work to be doing, it is not required to do it, however, if not completed I will test you in the next class to make sure you understand and if not we will go over it ! For students who are younger - parents are always welcome to sit down with you! Seeing the pace of every student I will then make my way accordingly through questions and examples for you ! My way of teaching will be altered for each student so everyone can get the best tutoring possible!!

Improve your English with a TEFL-certified native speaker - for school, work, or conversation!
I am an experienced native Enligsh teacher, having taught subjects from mathematics to music over the last five years. I hold a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certificate with extension courses in teaching online, as well as teaching business English. I have a passion for helping people achieve their goals, whether that goal is to land a new job, pass a test, do better in school, or simply to enjoy learning English, I would love to help you on your English learning journey! Teaching philosophy: When one thinks of someone who is capable in a language, one thinks of someone who can use that language to express their thoughts, be that in the spoken or written medium. My lessons therefore tend to focus on these production aspects, supported by filling in any gaps with exercises and explanations as needed. I am always keen to hear from my students where they feel their difficulties lie, and adapt the content of my classes accordingly. It is my experience that this approach allows students to make faster progress, and also enjoy the process of learning more than spending hours doing dry grammar exercises!
