    English, Grade 4-9, National Test Prep, Adult learners welcome!

    I've been living in Stockholm for three years, working at one of the best English speaking schools in the city as the Head of English. I understand the Swedish education system very well and would be happy to help either Grade 6 or Grade 9 preparations for Nationella Prov. I also have experience working with English curriculum or the Cambridge curriculum.

    I would also be happy to help tutor adults who need some help practicing their spoken, written or read English.

    I believe when you tutor, you have be relaxed, make the lessons engaging and fun, and really make the student understand how much help some one on one time with a tutor can be. I like to use modern teaching techniques, make the lessons as active and engaging as possible and really make the time valuable and well spent for all.

    I have tutored in England, and am happy to be as flexible as you need me - either travelling to you, or hosting lessons at my apartment.

    I could provide a laptop but it would be easier if you bring your own. All resources will be provided by me, as well as excellent English and plenty of fun!

    About Me

    Hello!
    Welcome!
    Thanks for checking out my page. My name is James, I am originally from the North West of England, a small Roman city called Chester. I’ve been living in Stockholm for three years now, and I have been consistently impressed with Stockholm, the Swedish people and Sweden in general.

    For me- learning English is all about communicating well. I like to do this in as many different active ways as possible. Whether it is silly speaking games, using things you are interested in, new medias like YouTube, TikTok, reading some classic literature - I like to adapt my lessons to suit you. Whether it’s improving your reading, writing, speaking, or just preparing for National Tests, I want to make these lessons work for you. If you are having classes outside of school - they should be interesting and personal not boring and photocopied worksheets. They should be engaging and fun and make you want to learn! That is why I try to offer. In terms of what I’d like from you as as student? Very simple! Just someone who wants to learn English, and is willing to be honest with me if you’re finding something tricky or boring.

    I studied English Literature at a top 10 Red Brick University in England, then completed a Masters in English Literature before going back to University to become a teacher. I completed my qualifications, worked at a school in England for one year then moved to Stockholm (blame Brexit and Boris!) I have worked as the Head of English at one of Stockholm’s best International English Schools for two and a half of these years.

    I love connecting with young people and getting to know them, and to help them develop their love for language. As a specialism, I work best with bilingual learners- and I like to use a variety of tried and tested methods to improve speaking in English. In my spare time, I read and write all the time, and I love trying to instil the same love of reading in my students.

    As I explained above, I am a firm believer that if you tutor in a student’s spare time, the lessons should be valuable. All I can promise with me is - no boring, worksheet lessons which clearly are not personalised. I will discuss what you need from me, and try and make the lessons as active, fun, valuable as possible.

    I can work developing English from Grades 4-9.
    National test preparation in Grade 6-9.
    Support in Gymnasium for essay writing skills in English.
    Adult language learners.

    If you have any questions - please mail me! I will be happy to answer any questions you might have!

    Education

    I achieved a degree in English Literature from Lancaster University, then a Masters in English from Lancaster University. I then completed a Masters of Education, making me a qualified teacher.

    Experience / Qualifications

    I worked in two schools in England for the year after I qualified as a teacher of English before moving to Stockholm. Since moving to Stockholm, I have worked as an English teacher for 3 years, and the Head of English for 2 and a half years.

    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 ...)

    French private lessons by university graduate in Letters
    French private lessons are for students wishing: - consolidate their bases in grammar, spelling - improve their language skills (allophone students) - improve their speaking skills (conversation classes) -profect the written expression - ECR exams - prepare for the written examinations at the end of the studies (maturity, certificate of completion) - help with the writing of works of maturity (or other works of end of studies), of dissertation - work on argumentative texts - acquire a method to analyze literary texts - fill gaps - improve their spelling - prepare for oral exams (maturity, compulsory leaving certificates) - learn how to perform bibliographic research For help with writing: The objective is above all to acquire effective tools. The pupil will thus be able to learn to structure his ideas, to argue in a coherent (and convincing) way and to enrich his vocabulary. For the corrections of end of studies work: so that the meeting with the student is at the most profitable, I ask him to send me his writings before the meeting. Apart from my presence with the student, any course involves a preparation time before and after the lesson, including the work that I correct. My goal is to design an individualized course, so I take the time to write detailed comments on corrected work or tips to ensure maximum success for everyone. For example, an editorial correction can easily be the subject of a detailed commentary of 4 typewritten pages. For adults (FLE): In order to optimally prepare the first ones, I take the initiative to inform myself in advance of their objectives / expectations. Whether to practice speaking in everyday life, the professional world or to practice oral presentations, I prepare either PPT or technical sheets in advance that I send by mail ( after booking on the website). The other alternative is to make a PV of the course that I send (or that I print). Giving importance to keeping a written record on the one hand to better memorize the topics covered, on the other hand to better assimilate the spelling. Of a general nature, a concrete situation that responds to the learner's needs is the starting point. From this situation, I address the essential grammatical points.
