    Private English Lessons with a CELTA qualified Teacher

    Find the joy in learning English with an enthusiastic and experienced teacher from Ireland! I am passionate about languages and I want to share my love of languages with my students!

    A bit of information about myself:

    I have a MA in Applied Linguistics and a BA in International Business and French. I recently completed a CELTA course in Amsterdam where I learned so much on modern approaches to ESL.

    I have been learning languages since I was five years old and I started my language-learning journey in Ireland where I learned Irish, German and French. I recently started learning Dutch and I am looking forward to deepening my knowledge of the Dutch language.

    I work as an teaching assistant at a university in Northern France where I teach English to students from an intermediate to an advanced level. I have also taught both pre-intermediate and upper intermediate students in the past.

    What I offer:

    I offer fluency and grammar-focused lessons online to students who want to deepen their knowledge of either; Business English, Academic English and or who simply want to work on their fluency skills.

    I try not to give too much homework to my students but I'll happily give you more homework if that's what you'd prefer!

    About Me

    One of my greatest passions in life is learning languages and I want my students to feel confident as they speak English whether it's in the workplace or when they're traveling anywhere in the world. I myself love travel and my previous experience of living in Germany, Canada, Luxembourg and France is testament to this.

    Furthermore, I studied International Business for my bachelors degree and I would also like to help you as you embark on a career in the business domain! I pursued my ultimate passion in life when I started my MA in Applied Linguistics at the University of Limerick in Ireland. This provided me with exposure to Sociolinguistics, French Translation and TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of other Languages).

    Dynamic Dutch courses with a smiling native speaker ;-)
    I use several methods which are specially conceived to teach Dutch to people who have a different mother tongue. I really like to use methods out of the ordinary like role games or methods with which you learn while playing. All these adapted to the student's situation of course. As I learned myself a couple of other languages, it is easy for me to detect difficulties a student can encounter and adapt the way of learning. I can teach in English, French, German and Russian.

    🚀EVERY CHILD IS A MATHS GENIUS | British Tutor 🇬🇧
    .. [British Maths Tutor] ... When I was a young child, I believed I was not a mathematical person. It wasn't until I met an amazing teacher at age 15 that I discovered my mathematical genius and my life was changed forever. I'm eternally grateful to that teacher. My teacher knew that self-image and self-belief is the key to unlock your child's mathematical abilities. Everyone is good at maths, but we all have different styles of thinking. Bad teachers teach every child the same way. My job is find your child's style of mathematics and allow him to discover that for himself. When he discovers that, he will begin to enjoy the beauty and power of mathematics ...and then you will see as the grades begin to soar. 👉Click the blue "Contact Oliver" button above and lets discuss how we can unlock your child's mathematical talents! 😊

    Private French lessons with native French speaker in Co. Mayo
    I have been tutoring French and English for the past 20 years to students of various ages & origins and of numerous backgrounds: children, teenagers, adults, professionals, and also sometimes even older seniors (85+). Why am I teaching both languages? Well, I’m bilingual and of American & Swiss/French origins, and... I live in Ireland! This is what makes my teaching strong and relevant because I understand both cultures and therefore I can adapt my classes depending on the language of my students. While I was studying social work in French-speaking Switzerland, I was giving French/English private lessons in order to earn a side income. And I genuinely enjoyed it doing it! After I graduated and started working full-time, I didn’t give up this activity because I loved meeting new people and helping them achieve their goals. My teaching is always interactive in order to hold my students’ attention during the whole length of the classes, using numerous learning tools (photos, newspaper articles, music, videos, etc.) Naturally, I will focus on the priority of each student. Some students will want to improve their pronunciation, grammatical, and vocabulary skills, others will need to prepare a presentation or a speech at school/work, while others just want to learn a new language to enrich their general knowledge. And sometimes too, parents want their younger children to master a new language. Thanks to my education and experience with children, I’m also able to run a class dedicated to them! What you will gain from my course is not only good pronunciation and vocabulary/grammar improvement but also a deeper knowledge and understanding of the culture that surrounds one language! When you speak a language it’s important to appreciate the lifestyle, traditions, and heritage of the nation(s) speaking it. Both French and English are spoken in many countries around the world, as primary languages, and with so many different accents: the learning process is unlimited! Before the COVID restrictions, I was mainly teaching face-to-face and with a maximum of four students, but at the moment, I’m only teaching online (one-and-one) on Zoom. Besides that, I’m also a genealogist, I’m running Spiritual Seminars in the West of Ireland and I have a passion for vegetarian & vegan cuisine. I hold a Degree in Early Childhood Education for many years I owned a private “Before & Afterschool” facility for children aged 4 to 12. I’m looking forward to meeting you

    Spanish lessons/ Native teacher/İstanbul'da ve online özel İspanyolca dersi/ DELE/ özel yerli öğretmen / Clases de español/ スペイン語のレッスン。
    My Spanish lessons will be skill and grammar focused. I will help the students to develop their language skills so that they can use them in real contexts. For the DELE and Cambridge assessment lessons the students must have a good command of the language because I will prepare them to know the structure of the tests while they practice and develop the main skills and sub skills needed to have a good result. İspanyolca derslerim beceri ve dilbilgisi odaklı olacak. Öğrencilerin, dili gerçek anlamda kullanmak için dil becerilerini geliştirmelerine yardımcı olacağım. DELE dersleri için öğrencilerin iyi derecede İspanyolca bilmesi gerekir ve onları testin yapısını bilmeye hazırlayacağım ve iyi bir sonuç elde etmek için gereken temel becerilerini ve alt becerilerini çalıştıracağım.

    English Conversation Elementary and Pre-Intermediate in Breda / English Conversation Intermediate
    English Conversation lessons focus on improving your speaking skills. In the lessons different topics will be discussed and debated in an interactive way. This way you can improve your English fluency or vocabulary. You will have the chance to practice English with an experienced and qualified teacher.To join me you don't need anything but your presence! I am an experienced teacher and I speak four languages. I hold a bachelor's degree in teaching of Italian language and Art History from Ljubljana University in Slovenia. Originally from Slovenia I have lived and worked in four different countries because of my husband's film post-production professional. Among other things I lived in London where I taught movement therapy. I moved to the Netherlands five years ago and have been learning Dutch. So I am perfectly aware of the challenges people face when they try to learn a new language as adults. I think that my personal experience can benefit others who are struggling to improve their language skills. My experiences as a teacher have given me the opportunity to interact with a variety of student populations and engage them in learning. In the Netherlands I taught Italian at Buas University - Tourism and Management and English Conversation at Gilde Baronie Apart from my teaching experience I am also a performer, illustrator and movement teacher.

    I am a French teacher. I have been teaching French, language, and communication since 2012. I speak Arabic, French, Spanish, a little English, and a little Turkish.

And at the end of each session, I give "lessons" with "exercises" to do as homework to continue our support and increase your level.

The second step is to follow the school's book(s) and curriculum (unless the parents wish otherwise). The classes consists of test revision, homework assistance and lots of practice.

    Klaudia
    Scary class for adults with low-bandwidth contact, very flexible.
    Ahoy! Thank you for wanting to practice, learn, read or prepare for exams in English. My name is Klaudia and I am an English freak / linguist. I have been teaching children, teens and adults for 5 years. 2016-2017 I had stayed in London where I learned my neutral accent. In 2019, I got TEFL 120h and from one year I teach professionally. Lessons are always tailored to what you need. I believe in individual attention. What interests you, we'll talk about it in English. I prepare for every lesson and expect the same from you, that's why I always send you emails or messages so that your English stays active in your head even outside of class. While class we use a number of assistance resources: handouts, interactive media web sites, games, music, comics, books, news and all. The biggest benefit of my approach is flexibility. I make slots to use in your calendar. The more you take a class, the faster you will see the progress. I think one lesson a week is fine, but one lesson every 2 weeks is an absolute minimum. Learn quickly when you want and enjoy using English. I prefer to teach online because of corona, but I will come to you up to 20 km from Amsterdam.

    German, English exam preparation for school and A1 to DSH
    I help schoolchildren and adults to learn both German and English. With fun and empathy. What distinguishes my lessons is that I have a lot of patience for my students and practice with them until they understand it. Everyone loves teaching with me. I respond to my students' requests and my goal is to help students make progress without burdening them. I give assignments after every lesson and create regular progress reports.
