    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.

    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 remind parents that to have 10/20 to the Baccalaureate, just have the level A2 (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd) so I let you imagine the despair of engineering students who must get at least 750 to the TOEIC! It's the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course gives rise to a detailed report. * In-depth knowledge of the European Framework. (A1 => C2) * Work of language activities. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, links ... The grammar of the oral. * Adaptation to all levels: => College - High school: beginner, false beginner ... => Post-baccalaureate: TOEIC preparation, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Oral and writings of the grandes écoles such as ENA => Oral and written business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...) => Engineering school: preparation for TOIEC.

    Private lessons of Brazilian Portuguese - English
    I already have a degree in Portuguese-English, and now I'm doing a master's degree in multilingual communication. I think pronunciation is very important for good communication, so I try to help my students with that. I love grammar and grammatical differences between languages. I think we learn better by having fun.

    English for beginners , learn to speak english with me via webcam
    English is a West Germanic language that was first spoken in early medieval England and is now a global lingua franca. Named after the Angles, one of the Germanic tribes that migrated to England, it ultimately derives its name from the Anglia (Angeln) peninsula in the Baltic Sea. It is closely related to the Frisian languages, but its vocabulary has been significantly influenced by other Germanic languages, particularly Norse (a North Germanic language), as well as by Latin and Romance languages, especially French. English is the third most widespread native language in the world, after Standard Chinese and Spanish. It is the most widely learned second language and is either the official language or one of the official languages in almost 60 sovereign states. There are more people who have learned it as a second language than there are native speakers. English is the most commonly spoken language in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, Ireland and New Zealand, and it is widely spoken in some areas of the Caribbean, Africa and South Asia. So as you can see we widely need to speak english in nowadays , it's necessary once you are abroad and don't speak the language of the country . Let's start together to learn english , step by step we'll achieve to highest result. I am experienced french teacher , but I also teach english for beginners , armenian , russian and dutch for beginners . I am waiting for you my lovely students
