    English lessons with a qualified British teacher in Paris

    I am a qualified English teacher from Britain with many years of teaching experience.
    I enjoy helping my students to gain confidence in the four basic skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking.
    I teach both general English and business English, offering both formal and informal course structures.
    I can follow a fixed syllabus, working through course books chapter by chapter. Alternatively, I can provide informal conversation classes, discussing topics of interest and boosting confidence.
    I have a British accent (southern English), so my students benefit from copying my accent and speaking like a native.
    I take notes on every class, providing feedback and homework.
    I am also an experienced editor, so I am happy to correct essays/reports and assist with applications.
    Most of all, I aim to make lessons relaxed and enjoyable!

    ENGLISH course - become fluent in English, communicate in English without prejudice
    Actor of formation having lived abroad (London and Toronto), I love English and I would like everyone to know how to speak it! There is indeed a delay in France with respect to English, which is remembered is spoken worldwide and is the first language of communication! And this comes mainly from the lack of confidence in the oral. That is why with you I will work above all on the ease and the confidence but also on the pronunciation and the rhythm.

    Over 14 years now, my students have been passing their English/ESL exams and have been able to tremendously improve their English skills to the point where they are able to now speak like Western native speakers! Essay writing is a huge area of focus in my classes as well! Not only do I and my team work with exam instructors to get the most up-to-date exam requirements, but also provide to the student the most focused strategies that are EASY TO UNDERSTAND, FAST TO LEARN AND FOCUSED ON A PROFESSIONAL ENGLISH CURRICULUM. I myself have scored 8.5 in IELTS and have helped my students achieve maximum scores as well: IELTS: 9 band (over a hundred cases) TOEFL: 120 points (56 cases) SAT: Full marks (45 cases) CELPIP: 12/12 (over 300 cases!) This excludes the thousands of other students who have been able to secure university entries or who have qualified for top-notch jobs thanks to their newly-learnt English skills. Likewise, these successes are the reasons why I love my job and continue teaching. Every day, I work hard towards achieving student results. The very moment they pass and thank me is something I live for day and night! With my TEFL certification, years of experience, work with examiners, professional training for English teaching skills, background of working with students from all backgrounds, and most importantly DOCUMENTED TRACK RECORD OF SUCCESSFUL CANDIDATES, I am sure that your requirements for your next learning venture will be guaranteed and pleasing!

    My name is Pia, I am Norwegian. I hold a Business & Finance degree from Dubai & UK. Along with a writer degree from BBC writing school. I teach English both speaking and writing for children, up until young adults. My teaching method is based on playing on the children's strength, and therefore implement games, activities and roleplay as a big part of my teaching. Along with this, I play on childrens great imagine abilities and using this to ensure that what they learn sticks to their long-term memory. The methods I use are built on both the mind logic and the creative part. I strive for that the children will experience joy, learning and feeling that they can do it. For me, all of this starts with their feeling safe and trust me. So in the start, I will emphasize the importance of getting to know each other. What will I need from you: 1. What level are they at now? 2. What is the goal? 3. What is the time period? 4. How frequent? 5. Is there anything I should take extra care of/ into consideration? AND What other subject are they working on in School? This is to be able to chain everything together.

    German, English and French language courses.
    Foreign languages ​​and cultures being my passion, it is in the field of teaching or interpretation that I see my professional future. For this Reason, I propose to give rise to the desire of students who want oral and written love and fluency in the languages ​​I teach. The course will be adapted according to the needs of each student (beginner, help with homework, preparation for exams, support exercises to monitor the evolution etc) while keeping for sole purpose to reinforce the gains and fill the targeted gaps. Young student in 3rd year of LÉA, I can understand that some are angry with the languages ​​and I propose to remedy it.
