Reviews (4)

I've really enjoyed my lessons with John! He's knowledge, flexible and patient! He's introduced me to a bunch of new music genres and was quick to get to the point.
Really enjoying piano and guitar classes with Johnathan . Sofia has learned so much in just two classes.
Johnathan is very helpful and has great patience
Excellent and very patient. Cant be easy to teach a musical instrument over zoom but he did and my daughter really enjoyed it.
I teach Entry level/Beginner/ Intermediate Piano and Guitar lessons with a focus on different styles, techniques, and rhythms from a broad base of musical genres. Classes are designed for aspiring musicians with some musical background and also those with little or none. Each lesson is designed to keep the student at the peak of their abilities by giving both challenging new pieces and reinforcing their own technical skill. I also put some emphasis on incorporating students' own personal musical tastes and styles to bring their passion to the music they want to play. In the first lesson, we can get to know each other and you can get an idea for how the lessons will be taught while letting me know what elements you'd like to focus on in the future.

Jovana
TESOL cetified teacher offers conversational courses as well as a continued work on listening, reading, speaking, and comprehension skills.
During my studies in General Linguistics and Spanish, I did a lot of research on L1 and L2 language acquisition and found out that self-paced learning with the full immersion approach leads to more engaged and successful progress in an online classroom. An honest conversation about goals, dreams, or personal achievements can expand the objectives of each lesson and further boosts students’ confidence. I learned about the immersion approach during my first job at the school here in Belgrade, where I taught and mentored groups of students with special needs who needed specifically tailored classes in which they would make a more relatable connection to the language in order to conquer it. That was one of the most meaningful and joyful years of my life. During my work at BetaKid, my enthusiasm was shared by hundreds of students who have remained loyal to me to this day. I want to be a valuable resource for students. I prefer to discuss many different topics and carefully integrate them into previously introduced contexts. That way we can target the vocabulary or grammar of the day so that students can make connections and expand their opinions as well as their knowledge. In my teaching, I always strive to make my students feel heard and understood. On the whole, I have an incredible passion for my profession and would love to share my enthusiasm with learners on this platform! I hope to hear from you soon!

Stavie
Online or at-home English tutoring for Beginners or Advanced users
Hello! My name is Stavie and I've been using English ever since I can remember! Because of this, I am interested in helping others discover, learn, or improve their English skills. Have you just started learning English and you need someone to help you with this journey? Do you already have a good level you just need someone to practice with? Would you like help with an interview or presentation in English? I can help you learn a language from scratch or help you practice so you can use the language at work or in a personal setting. In our first lesson we will have a casual talk, ideally in English so that I understand your level, and we will discuss your needs and objectives in order to set the goals of our course. As a Communications professional, I have spent the past six years studying and working primarily in English. Being a bilingual English-Greek speaker, I am attracted to teaching because it not only allows me to discover new abilities and develop them but also provides me with the opportunity to share my knowledge with people who are keen on learning something new. My experience allows me to offer courses for both teenagers and adults. I can also offer support with homework in English for Elementary, Secondary and High-School Students. I am looking forward to meeting you and being part of your journey in learning English! In case you have any questions before booking a course with me, do not hesitate to contact me.

English Conversation - Learn to speak fluent English with a neutral accent
Learn basic English grammar, tenses, and vocabulary to become fluent in everyday conversation with a neutral accent. I will provide several real-life scenarios and encourage students to hold hesitation-free conversations with a pleasant accent. Regardless of the many languages, one is fortunate to be fluent in, English takes its place as one of the world’s predominant forms of communication with its influences extending over as many as +2 billion people globally. Where it all started Many of you will be forgiven for thinking that studying an English Language course consists of English grammar more than anything else. While English grammar does play a part when taking courses to improve English overall, it is but a small part of the overall curriculum where one becomes immersed in a history that was partly influenced by myths, battles, and legends on one hand, and the everyday workings of its various social class on the other. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, the English language itself really took off with the invasion of Britain during the 5th century. Three Germanic tribes, the Jutes, Saxons and Angles were seeking new lands to conquer and crossed over from the North Sea. It must be noted that the English language we know and study through various English language courses today had yet to be created as the inhabitants of Britain spoke various dialects of the Celtic language.
