    English as a Foreign Language Tutoring with a Cultural Focus

    I provide individualized English language tutoring for students, adults and business professionals. As a native English speaker, I can provide insight into natural and correct English usage as well as American culture. I have TEFL certification, as well as teaching and tutoring experience, and thus can adapt lessons to fit a range of skill levels and language learning goals. As an avid language learner who speaks four languages and is in the process of learning a fifth (Turkish), I am fully aware of the obstacles that face language learners and can help students overcome them. While lessons are primarily focused on improving student's speaking and comprehension skills, regular focus on reading and writing exercises can be included to assist learners who encounter written English in their jobs or studies. Lastly, lessons can include a focus on English language resources such as literature, music and film, especially if learners are looking to expand their knowledge of the English speaking world.

    About Me

    My passion for language teaching comes from my passion for language learning--I know the doors that open in your mind and in your world when you learn a new language, and I want to help other people open those doors. I see language learning as an act of cultural exchange, where in learning to say new words you also learn a different way to see the world and connect with others. The lessons I offer are highly personalizable and content is dependent on the goals of the individual learner, but my view is that you can learn as much if not more from a favorite book or popular song than from dry textbooks and worksheets. I aim therefore to tap into the learner's interests and hobbies to help them learn English in a context that is wholly relevant to their world and dreams.

    English Like a Native, English for Test Preparation, IELTS and TOEFL
    Get in touch ONLY if you are a serious student and have a great desire to learn. I have a clear expectation and expect you to practise at least one hour a day at home before attending my lesson. I know it sounds a bit harsh, but you know where I am coming from :) I am a native English speaker from London. I graduated from Durham University in June 2017 where I studied Mathematics and Economics. After my graduation, I taught Maths at a grammar school for 6 months. In the meantime, I taught English for those whom English is not their first language, this was conducted mostly in a one-to-one format. I am a well-organised person and have different methods and resources to target your needs. I also speak a little Turkish and will try to explain the lesson in Turkish if it gets too difficult.

    I specialize in tutoring students in English, Spanish and I prepare them to take iternational exams. My teaching method is based on LEARNING BY DOING and KNOW-HOW. To achieve this, it is necessary to focus on the MULTIPLE INTELLIGENCES and the INTERESTS and NEEDS of the students. On one hand, they learn in different ways such as, for example, through visual, auditory, kinesthetic, interactive, individual aids, etc. On the other hand, it is important to meet the objectives of the students so that the classes are RELEVANT and they can take full advantage of it.

I have experience teaching English as a second language both online to students in China.And in schools in Italy.

    Professor of National Education, author of school textbook, 24 years of experience.
    ***** Availability update made on 09/01/2020. Valid until further notice ***** I offer you my services in order to make you truly effective orally / in writing in English. If you have to use English in the course of your professional activity and you don't get comfortable with it ... If you are tired of being spotted immediately as French ... If you don't know still not when to use the present perfect / preterite .... I'm here to help you and make you progress. * Linguist by training and author of school textbook in this capacity. Note that I am not this young student who had a good mark in the Baccalaureate or this other who is supposedly bilingual. I have been teaching as a teacher in the National Education since 1995 and I can tell you that teaching cannot be improvised. It is not an activity that we do "like that". I offer you my expertise and my experience. By the way, to have 10/20 in the Baccalaureate, it is enough to have the A2 level (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd year) so I let you imagine the desperation of future engineers who must obtain at least 750 in the TOEIC! (the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course is prepared according to your needs. Feedback is always given. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, connections ... Oral grammar. * Adaptation to all levels: from college to post-baccalaureate through high school. => Post-bac: preparation for TOEIC, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First-Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Orals and writings from grandes écoles such as ENA => Orals and writings from business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...)
