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.

Amazing tutor!! Really took the time to work with me and help me prepare for my masters' thesis proposal presentation! Really friendly and constructive in his suggestions and corrections! Felt very at ease during our study session which made practicing my presentation even more productive. Would definitely 100% recommend!
Jack est très pedagogue et compétent. Le premier cours s'est très bien passé et j'ai appris pas mal de choses. Je vais continuer mes cours d'anglais avec lui. Je le recommande vivement!
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 was a very patient mentor for my young boy. He was perfect.

Valentin
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.

IELTS/English/CELPIP/Essays/Grammar/SPEAKING and every thing ever needed for ESL!
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!

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.

Cynthia
English lesson
English is a wonderful language and has the quality of being spoken all over the world. Learning it is not easy when you do not feel good enough to master a new language. However, it is enough of a good hearing and linguistic preparation to get used very quickly to the listening, the base of the understanding of a new language. Becoming bilingual thanks to a non-binding method, I can share the keys to my success. Especially suitable for the (very) young audience. Do not hesitate, Speak it!
