English and Test Prep Tutoring (Additional Tutoring in Math or Science Available Upon Request)

I am an experienced, native-speaking English teacher from the USA. I have taught both in my home country and in many countries abroad, instructing native speakers as well as second language learners. I have a teaching certification as well as experience teaching both Math and Science with English as the instructional language.
Through my experience I have gained particular expertise with test preparation like the GRE, CAE, GMAT, CPE, TOEFL, and TOEIC, just to name a few. I recently had a student score 8 on IELTS and another score 1480 on the SAT. I have had students get accepted into prestigious institutions like Rotterdam School of Management, Purdue University, and Brooklyn School of Science and Technology.
Though I care a lot about the success of my students, I also care greatly that they are enjoying my class. Learning useful skills and having fun are my top priorities :)

About Me

I am an American educator who has been teaching 5+ years. Although I am primarily an English teacher, I have actually taught a wide range of subjects, from Theatre to Math to Science to Music. I have taught in New York, California, DC, Taipei, Prague, and online.

When I'm not teaching I really enjoy the outdoors and the arts. I'm an avid hiker, backpacker, camper, and rock climber. One of my previous jobs was actually as an outdoors guide! I also love playing music and can play 5 instruments (though none too well). I enjoy theatre and performance too, having been an actor in the US.

Martin Menendez
ENGLISH AND SPANISH LESSONS: from beginner to proficiency level. Training for official exams, conversation tutor, practice exercises...
Hi! I am Martin Menendez, a bachelor student who is looking to teach either Spanish (my native language) or English (I'm bilingual: certified C2 English level) here in Prague, where I will be spending my year. I have experience teaching both languages, which I have been teaching for the last two years, and I offer lessons for any level! As a method, I dedicate the first lesson to more or less see the level at which the student is and therefore start developing a plan for future classes, what the student wants and needs and what areas we will spend more time focusing on. I do assign homework each week :) However, most important is having a friendly, close and personal environment where you see me as an equal and where you can ask anything you want. I also want to learn from you and this city too! I think communication is key and that is why I am available to message anytime any day. Flexibility is one of my assets since I am available from Wednesday to Sunday. Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions if you are interested!

Luka
Teaching all school levels of Math, Biology and English
I'm a Math&bBology&English tutor for school students of all ages. My classes consist of only one student because every student needs a different approach. I personally believe that the best way to teach someone is to understand how his/her mind works and after that find the most effective and convenient method for the individual. My goal is to create a friendly and comfortable environment where you feel free to be yourself. I can definitely say that teaching is one of my hobbies and I do this with pleasure, once this wise man told me "we never stop learning, even when we get older" and I believe him. I might be the teacher in this situation but u have to always be open to new experiences. So if you think you are motivated enough to do your best then I will be more than happy to give my best to you! And if you aren't motivated enough, then we will find a way to bring that spark back to you. If you have any questions feel free to text me, will try my best to reply to you asap. Remember, its all about the journey not the destination.

Chemistry for High School and University exams (English)
This class will help my students (from high school to university level) to understand and face one of the most studied discipline in science: chemistry. I have been worked with tens of students, in Italian and in English, helping them for university exams and for high school tests. The class is structured depending on the students needs, with both theoretical and practical (exercises) study. Typical topics in general chemistry are: pH, titrations, redox, stochiometry, electrochemistry. But there is much more. Together we can have fun with chemistry!

🚀EVERY CHILD IS A MATHS GENIUS | British Tutor 🇬🇧
.. [British Maths Tutor] ... When I was a young child, I believed I was not a mathematical person. It wasn't until I met an amazing teacher at age 15 that I discovered my mathematical genius and my life was changed forever. I'm eternally grateful to that teacher. My teacher knew that self-image and self-belief is the key to unlock your child's mathematical abilities. Everyone is good at maths, but we all have different styles of thinking. Bad teachers teach every child the same way. My job is find your child's style of mathematics and allow him to discover that for himself. When he discovers that, he will begin to enjoy the beauty and power of mathematics ...and then you will see as the grades begin to soar. 👉Click the blue "Contact Oliver" button above and lets discuss how we can unlock your child's mathematical talents! 😊

Spanish lessons/ Native teacher/İstanbul'da ve online özel İspanyolca dersi/ DELE/ özel yerli öğretmen / Clases de español/ スペイン語のレッスン。
My Spanish lessons will be skill and grammar focused. I will help the students to develop their language skills so that they can use them in real contexts. For the DELE and Cambridge assessment lessons the students must have a good command of the language because I will prepare them to know the structure of the tests while they practice and develop the main skills and sub skills needed to have a good result. İspanyolca derslerim beceri ve dilbilgisi odaklı olacak. Öğrencilerin, dili gerçek anlamda kullanmak için dil becerilerini geliştirmelerine yardımcı olacağım. DELE dersleri için öğrencilerin iyi derecede İspanyolca bilmesi gerekir ve onları testin yapısını bilmeye hazırlayacağım ve iyi bir sonuç elde etmek için gereken temel becerilerini ve alt becerilerini çalıştıracağım.

Yolanda
ESL/EFL Online English Language Tutor - Individuals
My lessons are student-centred, flexible, and fun! Lessons are continuously adapted to suit the individual; every lesson is structured based on the needs of the student. The focus of each lesson will initially be based on a student needs assessment carried out at the start of your course, and adapted based on progress and changing needs. Learning areas identified may include: * Refining your pronunciation * Practicing everyday language and conversational skills * Exam preparation, focusing on specific grammar and/or vocabulary * Reading comprehension and practice * Writing correction and practice * Job interview preparation Lessons are conducted in English, since this has shown to be the most effective way for students to learn a foreign or second language. It is recommended to book a course of at least 20 hours.

English Private Tuitions (Adults and School Students) + IELTS
I am specialized in teaching English to adults and students in international and private schools. For adults, this class offers a general English practice or IELTS test preparation depending on what the student is looking for. The lessons will first start by evaluating their abilities in the four main skills (Speaking, Listening, Writing and Reading) then we can work together to plan the weekly lessons accordingly. As for the school pupils, the student shall present his/her previous test papers and results to identify his/her weaknesses and strengths. The second step is to follow the school's book(s) and curriculum (unless the parents wish otherwise). The classes consists of test revision, homework assistance and lots of practice. Any communication occurring during the class must be in English. The class usually consists of one student.

Mimi
English Conversation Elementary and Pre-Intermediate in Breda / English Conversation Intermediate
English Conversation lessons focus on improving your speaking skills. In the lessons different topics will be discussed and debated in an interactive way. This way you can improve your English fluency or vocabulary. You will have the chance to practice English with an experienced and qualified teacher.To join me you don't need anything but your presence! I am an experienced teacher and I speak four languages. I hold a bachelor's degree in teaching of Italian language and Art History from Ljubljana University in Slovenia. Originally from Slovenia I have lived and worked in four different countries because of my husband's film post-production professional. Among other things I lived in London where I taught movement therapy. I moved to the Netherlands five years ago and have been learning Dutch. So I am perfectly aware of the challenges people face when they try to learn a new language as adults. I think that my personal experience can benefit others who are struggling to improve their language skills. My experiences as a teacher have given me the opportunity to interact with a variety of student populations and engage them in learning. In the Netherlands I taught Italian at Buas University - Tourism and Management and English Conversation at Gilde Baronie Apart from my teaching experience I am also a performer, illustrator and movement teacher.
