Online English Conversation Vocabulary, Grammar, Pronunciation

Hi,

My name is Sheila, I'm passionate about teaching English conversation classes for adults, from Pre-Intermediate to Advanced; these are the levels I enjoy the most.
It came to my attention that a lot of students already speak the language at some level but are not able to develop their skills due to the fact that they have nobody to practice it with. They, also, feel the need to expand their vocabulary, improve their grammar, and enhance their pronunciation.

That’s why I consider these three language aspects, grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation, extremely important because they are, in my humble opinion, the three main pillars of a good and productive English conversation class.

My classes consist of working with texts (reading comprehension) Having the text as a reference point we, then, work on vocabulary, grammar, and pronunciation. A discussion about the main theme of the text ensues and that's the conversation part of the class.

About Me

Hi,

My name is Sheila. I'm passionate about teaching English conversation classes for adults, from Pre-Intermediate to Advanced. It came to my attention that a lot of students already speak the language at some level but are not able to develop their skills due to the fact that they have nobody to practice it with. They, also, feel the need to expand their vocabulary, improve their grammar, and enhance their pronunciation.

My classes consist of working with texts (reading comprehension)and video clips. Having those two as reference points we, then, work on vocabulary, grammar, and pronunciation. The student recounts with his/her own words the video clip. A discussion about the main theme of the text ensues and that's the CONVERSATION part of the class. I’d be very honored if given the opportunity to help you achieve the English speaking goals you set out to achieve.

Education

I have a Bachelor's Degree in "English Language and Literature"; graduated in December/1980. Also, I have a TEFL/TESOL Certificate awarded to me, online in March/2015.

Experience / Qualifications

I have experience in teaching conversational English for Pre-Intermediate to Advanced levels.
My classes are conducted online.
I’m passionate about teaching English conversation classes for adults (Pre-Intermediate to Advanced) If you are in need of practicing your conversational skills but at the same time you want to improve your grammar, expand your vocabulary and have a pronunciation coach, then I'm the right person for you. We work with texts for reading comprehension as well as short video clips. Generating conversations and discussions about various subjects and current events. I hope we can talk and get to know each other better so I can design a plan of action towards your English-speaking goals. Looking forward to having you as a student!
My classes consist of working with texts (reading comprehension)and video clips. The student recounts with his/her own words the video clip, at which time we go over grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. The student reads the text, a discussion ensues and that's the CONVERSATION part of the class, again, always recurring to grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. I’d be very honored if given the opportunity to help you achieve your English speaking goals you set out to achieve.

Turkish Lessons (In-Person OR Online) for Adults and Kids from an Experienced and Patient Teacher For All Levels-Learn&Practice&Speak!
I have been teaching Turkish for 17 years. I started to teach when I was studying Turkish Language and Literature. I worked in a language school and at the universities, I suppose that I gained success. 😊 My achievements are directly proportional to my students’ success. My students are mostly teachers, consulate officers, international business people, and also travelers. I feel rewarded when I witness their progress in applying their Turkish language skills to their daily lives. Over the years, I have met hundreds of people from all over the world, taught Turkish, and told them about Istanbul and Turkey. Those people told me about their countries and learned to express themselves in Turkish. For example, I ask them: “Do you like Istanbul?” in Turkish it is “İstanbul’u surveyor museum?” or “ Traffic is very bad in Istanbul!”, “İstanbul’ da çok Trafik var!” The basic but correct conversation is really important for self-confidence in any language. If a learner can master basic sentence forms, the rest will come much easier. On the other hand, making mistakes is also very important. Especially, a learner can not speak without making a mistake the first and second time. My students are always varied and have diverse learning skills. My professionalism also allows me to tailor language education according to individual interests, needs, and capacities. In the classroom, I hold firm three main principles: first, providing a comfortable environment, second, creating an encouraging atmosphere, and third, establishing a collaborative instruction model. I consider that I developed an aptitude for making learning Turkish to become much easier, enjoyable, and practical for my students. I use a book prepared by a university in Turkey. I share the pdf version of the book for my lessons. I also adapt the materials according to the learner’s needs and support the book with my authentic materials. Even though I use a communicative approach, all my lessons are guided by a solid knowledge of grammar. On the online lessons, I send an e-mail after every lesson. That word file includes a vocabulary list, sentences (corrected and uncorrected versions, you can compare both of them easily), grammar point,s and homework for revision. In this way, you can find everything in a file well organized. When we have a face to face lesson, I give a hard copy of this list after every lesson. The lessons could be at my home office or in my student's house or office. I sometimes meet with my students in a coffee shop, I try to prefer silent places. :) How learning a new language opens a new window into a person, teaching Turkish is also the same for me! I was always interested in languages - I could speak a bit of Italian and learned Persian grammar except English. I always think about Istanbul -I was born and grew up here- it is a good place for self-improvement. First and foremost, Istanbul hosts international people coming from around the world. It is considering to me, I am lucky because I have one of the pleasant professions. When teaching Turkish, promoting cross-cultural awareness forms an important part of my lessons. Teaching the language involves both the students and myself in a dynamic conversation about our cultural backgrounds. Teaching Turkish is in fact not only teaching a language but also teaching a culture. I am interested in cinema, music and like visiting museums. I always share the activities with my students. I also teach Turkish to young learners. I started to study Child Development at Istanbul University as a second university in 2018. We say in Turkish, “Studies have no age!" If you want to speak Turkish well, please contact me. It is fun, and we will smile during the lesson!

Private Maths Lessons - Limoges or Online - Qualified and Experienced Mathematics Teacher
I am a qualified and experienced private math teacher. Graduated from the Free University of Brussels in 2011, I started my career giving remedial courses in different schools in Brussels. I then specialized in individual tutoring by following a pedagogical training from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. I have been giving private math lessons daily for almost 10 years. Pleasantly surprised by the impact of my lessons on the school career of my students, in 2018 I created Math Coaching, an online tutoring platform. The platform provides students around the world with quality educational content focused on making math learning easier. The students who follow my private lessons benefit from personalized support. The first session is devoted to an in-depth assessment of the student's mathematical knowledge. The objective is to detect its weak points and understand their origin in order to adapt my courses to its needs. I develop a tailor-made remediation program for each of my students aimed at filling each of their gaps. Over the course of the sessions, the student builds a solid foundation for learning and regains self-confidence. At the same time, I help him acquire a work methodology that allows him to gradually become autonomous in his studies. I have a perfect knowledge of the mathematics program of the College and the High School (from the Sixth to the Terminale). During my formative years, I studied and developed many techniques that make it easier to learn math. The strength of my pedagogical approach lies in my ability to explain in a simple way everything that the student finds complicated. I am passionate about this job because it gives me the opportunity to guide dropout students on the path to success. It is a real pleasure to see them evolve and come to terms with the fantastic world of mathematics. I give my private lessons in Limoges (at the student's home) or remotely (by internet). My distance learning courses take place on an interactive online whiteboard. This table is specially designed to promote student / teacher interaction on the internet. Thanks to this educational tool, my online courses are as effective as home courses. The student only needs an internet connection and a computer, a tablet, or a smartphone to use it.

School support: optimize your study and improve your working method
My name is Serdane and I offer courses in work methods and study assistance to students who have trouble finding a way of working that suits them. After high school in the Latin-Grec-Math option in Saint-Boniface, I completed a double bilingual baccalaureate (Fr.-Eng.) Law (completed June 2015) and economics (completed June 2017) at the Saint-Louis University, then a Master in Law at UCL (completed June 2018) including an Erasmus in German at the University of Vienna (February-June 2018). This varied career allowed me to develop a solid working method. I gained significant experience during my university career by giving many courses to high school students. These years of experience in school support have allowed me to develop a methodology adapted to the needs and profile of the student. My rate includes full tuition (private lessons, the ability to ask questions outside of class time, writing and correcting questions, etc.). Looking forward to reading you!

Phil
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
