    Confidence in English and / or German
    If you've lost confidence in English or German, want to start from scratch or want to perfect already present knowledge, I can help you achieve your goals, drawing on 20+ years of successful teaching. I spent my childhood and teens moving back and forth between Germany and America (attending local schools) as a French citizen, so in addition to being a native speaker of both languages, I am also sensitive to individual concerns that can come up e.g. shyness, difficulty expressing oneself, etc. I have taught private students from all walks of life in Germany, France, Hungary, UK, USA, and now Finland, focusing on anything from run-of-the-mill tutoring to specific needs e.g. confidence in public speaking, social settings related to work, preparation for college / grad school. My method is to motivate students by setting challenges that let them see their own success. Each country also has its own method of teaching and learning, which can greatly assist in acquiring language skills. You will gain confidence, speak with ease, learn to speak as naturally as a native speaker and know the difference between their / they're / there at the very least. Different rates apply, depending on what you are looking for. Duration of a class will vary according to your needs, so feel free to let me know what you are looking for, whether you're absolutely sure or just want to dip your toe in the water. I teach in English, German, French, Polish or Hungarian

    Clases virtuales conversacionales en inglés para todas las edades y todos los niveles
    Hola, Mi nombre es Santiago y estoy ofreciendo clases virtuales de inglés individuales y personalizadas para mejorar tanto su comunicación oral como escrita. El enfoque principal de mis clases se centra en desarrollar una comunicación del idioma inglés de manera fluida y estructurada ya sea para preparar exámenes internacionales, incluyendo el TOEFL y el FCE, o como para poder comunicarse adecuadamente en el ámbito profesional, o para reforzar y mantener el conocimiento previo de este idioma. Soy Licenciado, graduado en Florida Gulf Coast University en los E.E. U.U. Habiendo aprendido inglés desde chico en el Ivy Thomas Memorial School y vivido año y medio en Tailandia, seguido de 4 años en E.E. U.U. adquirí gran conocimiento y fluidez del idioma inglés. En Tailandia estuve año y medio estudiando arte en la comunicación y esto me ayudó a prepararme para mis estudios en E.E. U.U. Tuve varias clases de comunicación, aprendiendo técnicas de cómo hablar mejor usando no solo nuestras palabras, sino también nuestro cuerpo para ayudarnos a hablar de manera más natural, tranquila y sin ponernos nerviosos si nos trabamos o nos olvidamos de lo que queríamos decir. Durante mi carrera en los E.E. U.U. estuve constantemente escribiendo ensayos para mis clases, además de tener que exponer proyectos delante de mis profesores y compañeros de clase. Al mismo tiempo, estuve trabajando en la universidad y luego de graduado trabajé durante un año, principalmente teniendo largas conversaciones por teléfono con personas de todo el país. Hoy en día la habilidad para comunicarse en inglés es imprescindible y los voy a preparar para que puedan cumplir sus objetivos. Podrá ser, el de estudiar en el extranjero, irse a vivir a un país de habla inglesa, mejorar la comunicación en el ámbito profesional o practicar para no perder el nivel previamente adquirido. Si lo que estás buscando es mejorar tus conocimientos del idioma inglés, yo te voy a ayudar. Mi metodología es simple. Cada persona es diferente y adapto el contenido de mis clases a las necesidades e intereses de mis alumnos. Todos aprendemos de distintas maneras y en tiempos distintos, por eso es que diseño mis clases de manera individual.

    English teaching for all levels! I can also teach Anthropology :)
    I am a native English speaker with a BSc from University College London in Anthropology (so if you are interested, I can teach you something about that too!). I am living in Helsinki to do a Master's degree in social sciences, and looking to do some part time tutoring. I have previously worked as an online English teacher for kids and adults and volunteered with ESL classes in the UK. I have a TEFL certificate, and am able to teach focussing on a wide range of skills, including conversation or more specific grammar / writing skills. I also have a lot of experience working with children, as I have volunteered with youth projects in Greece and the UK, worked as a babysitter and as an English-language educator to a 5-year old child in France. I'd be happy to teach kids of any age!

    Interactive Skype lessons: Russian and English languages for everyone
    Hi everyone and nice to meet you! I have been teaching English and Russian for a year and a half for children. I like interactive methods and teaching through songs, poems, and cinemas. I also give grammar exercises and practice oral skills but do not overload you. Promise that lessons will be fun, easy-going and productive. We are going to use modern materials in the classes. I also passed the IELTS exam and also can support for taking it. My own studies are in English so I always practice language myself. If you are interested in studying Russian or English languages I can teach them both. I am a self-organized, hard-working,​ and communicative person. Being a student at​ the University of Helsinki I am very open-minded​. Ready to work with ​any age.

    Math and Physics Tutoring. How we can find math fun :)
    Education: I have a PhD in Physics and Applied Mathematics from the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen. Focus of my project was modeling and understanding the glacial cycles using mathematical models. During my PhD, I have collaborated with researchers in Applied Mathematics from different research groups in Europe. I studied in Italy, where I graduated full marks with honours in Physics from La Sapienza, University of Rome. Work experience: I am currently working as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Helsinki. As a postdoc, my job also include teaching duties. During my PhD at Copenhagen University, I was teaching assistant in 3 Full Master's Degree courses. Since I started studying Physics, I have been working as a Math and Physics tutor, helping both high schools and college students. I have learnt a lot from my experience as a tutor. I believe it is only when you are able to explain difficult concepts in a clear and simple way, that you can consider yourself a good teacher! I did not have a good math teacher while I was in high school. I recall almost hating doing my Math homework! Luckily, after taking a few math classes with a really good tutor, I changed my mind completely. And here I am... :-) Class description: depending on the student's background and preferences, I usually prepare some material (theory, exercises, examples, etc...) that the student can use to strengthen their skills.

    English and Music Tutoring with a Friendly Native Speaker
    Moikka! I am offering English tutoring to anyone and everyone looking to improve their English language skills! I am a published writer with a strong history of academic writing. That said, I want to help you meet your own personal goals—be it improving your conversational skills, writing skills, or getting ready to pass those English language tests! Also, I understand quite a lot of Finnish which helps me to identify common mistakes native-Finnish speakers make. It helps me to better explain the logic of English from the perspective of a Finnish speaker. :) Additionally, I can offer lessons in piano and/or music composition (my main field.) For this, I can arrange a place for us to meet. I have open availability for teaching on most weekday evenings and during the day on weekends. So send me a message and let's grab a coffee somewhere and get to chattin'. I look forward to meeting you! :) Interests: Music, art, culture, humanities, politics, architecture, food, and pretty much anything else

    Private English Language tutoring for all levels and purposes.
    I am looking for all sorts of students, who are willing to - build up a broad vocabulary - improve writing skills - improve conversational skills - improve listening skills - improve reading skills - improve grammar - get prepared for an exam/speech/job interview And also start from scratch! That’s the most fun part. I am open to working with children and teens, because I can understand them and their needs well, so I can always find an individual way of helping each and every one of them with all the attention and guidance they need! I give one on one, private classes. But I am also open to teaching for two-three students at a time and potentially organizing a little group of people to meet weekly and improve/ practice our skills as a collective.
