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.

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.
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.

Robert

Bonjour, je m'appelle Robert. Pour donner mes cours, je m'adapte aux personnes en face de moi afin de faciliter leur apprentissage. Je cherche à définir l'objectif de l'élève, ses habitudes de travail pour adapter mes cours et choisir la pédagogie la plus adaptée afin d'obtenir les meilleurs progrès possibles. Mon objectif est de vous permettre d'apprendre mais surtout de comprendre et cela dans la bonne humeur. Sans pression, pas de jugement, climat détendu et bonne ambiance garantie.

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, 15 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!

Learn English culture and language! As well as optional Philosophy and English Literature!
I am a native English speaker who has a firm grasp of the grammatical complexities of my language. My goal is to help students who want to learn both colloquial and sophisticated English in order to further their understanding of culture, history and day to day life. You will first get to grips with the basic grammar and vocabulary, and then learn how to apply it to real life situations.

Daniel Lopez
Do you need help learning and improving your English language skills?
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.
