About Me

I have more than ten years’ experience as an MFL teacher in primary school teaching French and/or Spanish and I am currently working as Head of Languages at Yarlet School, an independent preparatory school for boys and girls. I actually teach French and Spanish from year 1 to year 8 and I also prepare pupils for the Iseb French Common Entrance Exam at the end of year 8.

I am deeply passionate about teaching languages and particularly enjoy teaching at primary level. I regularly use Makaton sign language and songs (see video) in my lessons, a memory tool I have found to be particularly effective, especially for those who find MFL challenging. I use various language assessment strategies to actively assess the four key language learning skills; speaking, listening, reading and writing. I ensure my online lessons promote independent inquiries, are child-centred, interactive, effective and fun.

Learn English for all levels of experience from 'Hello' to 'Goodbye' and everything in-between
Hello, my name is Jack, a native English speaker originally from Manchester, England. I have experience teaching English as a second language both online to students in China.And in schools in Italy. I have a diploma in International Business Management from Northumbria University, and studied abroad in Sweden and Portugal and therefore know how important and daunting learning a language can be. I specialise in teaching English as a second language. My aim is to be the lessons fun and engaging. Depending on what you want to learn we can focus on grammar, sentence structure, building vocabulary of a particular topic or start at the basics learning phonics. If you would like support and tutoring on homework or topics you are studying in school I can support students with this and help them achieve in school. I can also teach Business English and help you prepare for a presentation or interview or help with your studies. My class would be perfect for either adults or children wanting to improve their oral and written English skills. Each class will be personalised to your needs and abilities with the first class used to evaluate your level and how we can best use further classes to improve your abilities and see results.

I am a cheerful, optimistic and mindful teacher. I have been giving this course for more than 6 years. The class provides a flexible set of teaching materials, which can help you to improve your speaking and grammar skills at the same time. At the lesson different interactive activities, such as watching authentic videos and listening popular songs, are used to level up your English as fast as possible. Studying can be funny and fascinating. Teaching experience and friendly ambience can break down the wall of your silence. The course mission is to boost your vocabulary and communication.

Spanish - Online - Spanish lessons with a native teacher
My native language is Spanish (Native, Alicante), I have a Bac +5 degree in Science (Biology) and a Master's degree in Education that gives me an educational experience in education. I give Spanish lessons for those who see the need to learn the language from scratch, or just for those who want to learn it. As each person is different, the courses are tailored to the student's needs, goals and concerns. One of the best ways to learn a language is by immersion, which can be obtained through these courses. The platform to use for the course will be Skype. I want to share with you this experience!

French private lessons by university graduate in Letters
French private lessons are for students wishing: - consolidate their bases in grammar, spelling - improve their language skills (allophone students) - improve their speaking skills (conversation classes) -profect the written expression - ECR exams - prepare for the written examinations at the end of the studies (maturity, certificate of completion) - help with the writing of works of maturity (or other works of end of studies), of dissertation - work on argumentative texts - acquire a method to analyze literary texts - fill gaps - improve their spelling - prepare for oral exams (maturity, compulsory leaving certificates) - learn how to perform bibliographic research For help with writing: The objective is above all to acquire effective tools. The pupil will thus be able to learn to structure his ideas, to argue in a coherent (and convincing) way and to enrich his vocabulary. For the corrections of end of studies work: so that the meeting with the student is at the most profitable, I ask him to send me his writings before the meeting. Apart from my presence with the student, any course involves a preparation time before and after the lesson, including the work that I correct. My goal is to design an individualized course, so I take the time to write detailed comments on corrected work or tips to ensure maximum success for everyone. For example, an editorial correction can easily be the subject of a detailed commentary of 4 typewritten pages. For adults (FLE): In order to optimally prepare the first ones, I take the initiative to inform myself in advance of their objectives / expectations. Whether to practice speaking in everyday life, the professional world or to practice oral presentations, I prepare either PPT or technical sheets in advance that I send by mail ( after booking on the website). The other alternative is to make a PV of the course that I send (or that I print). Giving importance to keeping a written record on the one hand to better memorize the topics covered, on the other hand to better assimilate the spelling. Of a general nature, a concrete situation that responds to the learner's needs is the starting point. From this situation, I address the essential grammatical points.

Learn Spanish effectively! Customized courses
Established in Geneva since 2011, I am a teacher of Spanish mother tongue, who also speaks English and Portuguese. The content of my classes is focused on the needs of learners. The language is transmitted through practical examples with active participation of the learners in order to assimilate in a global way the words, the grammatical or phonetic rules according to their uses and in a usual context, ranging from an informal language to a form written complex. Classes are built around oral communication to enhance the interactivity of learners. I adapt my classes, be they of support or improvement or other, to the needs of the students, thus to reach their objectives in terms of comprehension of oral / oral production, and comprehension and written production. I have several years of experience in teaching, and a training in pedagogy, as well as a master's degree in translation and interpretation and in French literature (Lettres Modernes). Do not hesitate to contact me for additional information or any other question, I will be happy to answer you. Regards, Pilar
