Tailor made English lessons by certified TEFL teacher

My name is Julia and I am a qualified TEFL teacher (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) with a Master's degree in English linguistics. I offer English courses for all levels.
My background in linguistics provides me with a thorough knowledge of English grammar and I therefore have an understanding of the problems students face when learning English. Having lived and worked in the United States, I know what it is like to be immersed in an English speaking environment, therefore can help my students improve their fluency as well as develop the perfect accent! I can also give tailor made classes to working professionals, PhD students, who would like to focus on their academic English (EAP=English for Academic Purposes), essay writing and presentations skills.
After the very first meeting, I try my best to adopt the lessons to the needs and goals of my students. I don’t believe anyone can be a ‘bad language learner’, rather that different techniques might work for each of us. My goal is to help students discover what works for them. For those who are afraid of grammar and get confused easily, I'll give some easy tools so you can improve effortlessly. If being shy stops you from speaking, do not worry, as by the end of our lessons you will gain the confidence needed.
Generally, I only use English during classes, but for lower levels I can provide explanations also in Hungarian, in German or in French.

About Me

I am a native Hungarian, fluent in English and German, currently learning French and Italian on my own. As an avid language learner myself, I have always taken pride in helping others achieve their goals. I have a deep love for languages and keen to pass that on! :)
I have experience with teenagers, university students and adults. I have also taught professionals from the EU institutions and tailor made company courses. In addition to this, I have done proofreading for countless academic papers.
I have an extensive knowledge and experience of English grammar and literature, as well as past working experience in EU affairs.
In my free time I enjoy being outdoors, cycling as well as long distance hiking.

English - learn by doing (from perfecting the language to teaching the basics to upgrading)
In the case of tutoring, I base my lessons on the subject seen by the student by explaining to him in another way with many examples and by making him practice as much as possible. In case of learning the basics, I have set up my own totally interactive method so that the student can practice and during which I speak almost only in English to be close to immersion during the lessons. Do not hesitate to contact me for: - learn the basics - prepare for a test - have support for your lessons - practice the language - ... Whatever your needs, I take a practical and fun approach to English because, in my opinion, it is the best way to learn.

I know you speak it. I WILL FIX IT! West Coast (California) English. We walk, we talk, I correct! FUN! Learn by playing !
Hello! If you can understand this message without having to translate then you are ready for my help! I am from California, and have been living here in Brussels since 2012. I am 39 years old. I speak West Coast (California) English. It's the English you hear in your favorite California movies. I love to help friends who already speak "european street English" while HAVING FUN! Did you know that 70% of learning a language is learned OUTSIDE of a classroom setting? So I propose we go to the park, we cook together, we go on a bike ride, we draw, we play. And of course we will talk a lot. When I hear an error I will correct you in a fun way, writing things for you, with FUN AND REAL examples, with drawings, ALWAYS STAYING 100% in English. That's correct, I will only speak English to you, because as you and I both know, you already speak English, and you have understood everything (or maybe 70%) of everything I just wrote. What you want is to improve or perfect your spoken English (we can work on writing, too). Immersion and fun, West Coast Style. And my university degree? Yes, I have two of them, in Languages and Literatures, and I speak 4 fully fluent languages, but for now I want you to learn by HAVING FUN! My friends can tell you how fun it is to learn with me. HOPE WE GET TO PLAY TOGETHER SOON! You can do it! Groups ok.

GREEK & TURKISH & ENGLISH LESSONS FROM A NATIVE TEACHER
I am a 26 year old teacher currently living in Brussels, Belgium. I was born in Istanbul, in a Greek and Armenian family. Turkish and Greek are my native languages. I studied English language teaching & Journalism at Marmara university. Currently, I am a senior in Greek language and literature. To me, being a learner is a full-time profession! I have received my DELTA (Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) by Cambridge University. I believe learning a language should be based on communication. That's why, I always try to make my students talk more while I guide them. I use role-plays and communicative tasks a lot.

Tatiana
Learn English while having fun through games and activities + School support
Hello, I am starting as a private English teacher because I recently had the experience of giving lessons to a 7 year old child for 6 months where I created all kinds of games and activities that I dream of reusing. He was very happy about it and so were his parents. It also greatly blossomed for me as a teacher and my deepening of the language. I took English lessons for a month in Glasgow and developed my oral skills for 4 months in Vancouver thereafter. While staying in Brussels, I continued my advanced learning at EPFC and having knowledge with whom I speak exclusively in English, I practice daily. For the sake of precision, and confidence with the student, I prefer to teach children, adolescents and in tutoring. I am an internship facilitator, so I am used to taking care of children of all ages and in contact with them. Do not hesitate to contact me, I remain at your disposal for any questions or for a course. Tatiana

Samantha
English Tutor for Students, Adults and Professionals
English is one of the most popular languages in the world. In the modern age of globalism, it has been regarded as the most used language in terms of communication, let that be via emails, telephone calls, or letters. My goal with this class is to make you comfortable in all forms of communication with this language, so you can communicate with colleagues, friends, or potential new friends in a social setting. The main objective of this class is to completely remove the language barrier psychologically, so you can also think in English rather than just writing, listening, and expressing it. I look forward to helping new students and contribute to their aspiration to learn a Language.
