Learn English with an Experienced Cambridge University Graduate! (Tutorat en anglais)

I'm a native English speaker and a Cambridge philosophy graduate with a good deal of experience teaching English to students of all ages and nationalities. I'm a friendly and easy-going person, and I aim to create an open and unintimidating atmosphere in which to learn with my students. I am currently working at UNESCO in Paris.

I am able to teach spoken and written English, grammar, pronunciation, literature, and reading skills to all ages. I cater my lessons according to my students' needs; a lesson of advanced English could consist of high-level literature analysis and discussion, while I am also able to keep young students engaged with fun language-games and a good deal of enthusiasm.

I am also available to teach critical thinking, philosophy, and to help with university applications or proofreading.

I have worked for 3 well-regarded summer schools, and have taught English privately for a number of years.

Please feel free to get in touch if you would like to know a bit more about me!

About Me

Hi there! I'm a Cambridge philosophy graduate with a good deal of experience teaching English to students of all ages and nationalities. I'm a friendly and easy-going person, and I aim to create an open and unintimidating atmosphere in which to learn with my students. I love my subject, and think it's important to teach in a way that makes studying as enjoyable as possible. I am currently working at UNESCO in Paris.

Education

Philosophy, BA, University of Cambridge (High 2.1, 2017)

3 A*s at A-Level in English Literature, Philosophy, and Italian
4 As at AS-Level in English Literature, Philosophy, Italian, and History
10 A*s at GCSE in a range of subjects including English and Maths

Experience / Qualifications

I have taught English in both classroom settings and in 1-on-1s, to students ranging from 8 to 18 years old. I have had the pleasure of working for several highly regarded summer schools for students learning English as a foreign language.

As a teacher for the Cambridge-based Seminar for Advanced English Studies (SAES), I taught English and philosophy to German students aged 16 and over in preparation for their national exams. In lessons I covered poetry and textual analysis, as well as grammar and vocabulary classes. While at SAES, I taught dozens of students privately over a period of 2 months, and learned how to engage and capture the interests of particular students with different personalities.

Working for Bell Beyond in 2016, I taught English to Italian children aged 8-9 in a fully immersive (English only) environment. Working with the children, I learned to improvise, to be positive and supporting, and to be approachable and friendly. It was also necessary to communicate very slowly and clearly, and to find ways of teaching through games and other fun activities.

As a mentor for Cambridge Immerse in 2016, I organised and ran philosophy seminars and mock-interviews for potential applicants to Cambridge university. I held one-on-one sessions as well as group discussions with hopeful applicants.

Jake was a very patient mentor for my young boy. He was perfect.
Tomorrow my daughter has her firsy lesson with Jake. She's very happy to learn English
He is very kind, clever, and well prepared for the lesson. I had a very good impression of his professionalism in the first lesson. He tried his best to know the client's needs and realize in the class.
Jake is helping me improving my fluency before moving to the U.S., and after a few lessons I feel more comfortable in speaking. You can talk about everyday stuff as well as big issues with him in a relaxed atmosphere. He listens to you and cares about your needs. He is an easy-going person and he also well-prepared, he combines kindness and professionality. Also, his British accent really helps you improving your listening skills. Last but not least, he is very punctual (I'm Italian...), and the fact that he comes to you really helps if you're busy. I definitely recommend him!

Cours d'ANGLAIS - devenir fluent en anglais, communiquer en anglais sans préjugé
Acteur de formation ayant vécu à l'étranger (Londres et Toronto), j'adore l'anglais et j'aimerais que tout le monde sache le parler! Il y a en effet un retard en France quant à l'anglais, qui rappelons-le est parlé dans le monde entier et est la première langue de communication! Et cela vient principalement du manque de confiance à l'oral. C'est pourquoi avec vous je travaillerai avant tout sur l'aisance et la confiance mais aussi sur la prononciation et le rythme.

Daniel Lopez
Phonetics, pronunciation and conversational English!
Hello, My name is Daniel López. I am a very passionate and creative teacher (English & Spanish) I have experience in different contexts and backgrounds (Teaching teenagers, and University students) I feel very lucky in the sense that I really love what I do. I love teaching!! I hold a Ba degree on TEFL (English Language Teaching), and and a Ma degree on TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) at University of Leicester, England. Additionally, I must mention that I am strongly influenced by the CLT approach and critical thinking models. In other words, I consider that teaching a language must focus not only in grammar and vocabulary but also in communication and interaction. Therefore, speaking, pronunciation, and everything related to the phonological aspect of languages is my interest. Additionally, I would like to outstand the fact that I always work with clear purposes and organized lesson plans, and usually I create my own material in order to achieve specific purposes during the lesson, and because this allows me to be creative and accommodate any topic to your needs and interests. If you need any tutoring in this field, do not hesitate in contacting me! Have a great day.

Soutien de grammaire en Anglais/ Préparation aux épreuves de bac
Etudiante en science, l'anglais est pour moi un outil indispensable: tous les articles scientifiques sont rédigés en Anglais ! J'ai eu moi-même la chance de suivre des cours d'Anglais particuliers qui m'ont permis d'avoir des bases extrêmement solides en grammaire et de cette manière d'obtenir une note de 20/20 au bac d'Anglais ! J'ai actuellement un niveau C1-"Maîtrise internationale professionnelle". Je vous propose donc pendant les cours que nous aurons ensemble de travailler sur les bases de grammaire Anglaise ! En effet ce sont les fautes de grammaire et de syntaxes qui sont les plus pénalisées lors des corrections des examens ! Et une fois ces bases acquises, la rédaction et l'expression orales seront beaucoup plus fluides ! Je saurai bien entendu m'adapter au niveau de l'élève (débutant comme avancé) et lui proposer des exercices en accord avec ses difficultés.

English Language, Literature Analysis and Writing Skills
I can provide personally catered classes for a wide range of ages and skill sets/requirements. I work as a freelance English Tutor primarily teaching English language skills to children and adults. However, I can also provide English literature analysis and essay structure guidance as well as writing skills labs in Academic, Creative and Business English. As mentioned previously, I like to plan my lessons around my students so contact me and let me know what you/your child requires and we can go from there! The lessons will be in English but I can speak some conversational French so if you can only communicate your request in French, that’s absolutely fine. I look forward to working with you!

Pia Helene Sævil
Let me EDUtain your kids - I will make them fluent in English, and ensure that what your children learn sticks to their memory
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.

English Personnalisée selon les besoins et les centres d'intérêts de l'élève
The best way to learn a language is the same way you learned to speak as child. Rules and formulas are aquired later. We will work depending on your interests, what you like, what you are passionate about. Let's learn how to paint, draw, design while learning english La meilleure façon d'apprendre est la même que celle d'un enfant. Les règles de grammaire sont acquises plus tard. Nous travaillerons en fonction de vos centres d'intérêts, de ce qui vous anime et passionne.
