    Personalised English Lessons by a Qualified English Teacher

    As a native English speaker with a Bachelor of Education and a Cambridge CELTA, I have 10 years of experience teaching English in New Zealand, Australia and the U.K and a wealth of experience teaching English to foreigners in whole class, small group and one-to-one settings.

    I have taught children as young as 5, through to teenagers, adults and seniors. In any case, I adjust my teaching and learning to ensure my approach suits your needs and preferences. I am able to strike a balance between challenging you to grow and supporting you through your mistakes.

    I specialise in personalised English programmes, which means I work out exactly where you are, where you want to go and how you like to learn and then I tailor a program to suit your specific learning needs.

    I am able to teach English speaking, listening, reading, writing, spelling, phonics, punctuation and grammar. I will tailor all of the lessons to suit your interests e.g If you like art, I will help you to learn English through the topic of art and if you like sport, I will help you to learn English through the topic of sport.

    I will assist you to improve your pronunciation of spoken English and I can assist you with audio and video recordings of each sessions, so you can review the class at your own leisure.

    I will help you to develop your understanding of spoken English in authentic ways by listening to film, television, radio and podcasts, as well as engaging in conversation between the two of us.

    I will support you to develop your reading, writing and speaking skills through supported practise and lots of opportunities to build on your existing vocabulary.

    I will aid your spelling, punctuation and grammar through shared and independent writing activities, which will be both interesting and relevant.

    Following each session, I can provide at home learning tasks and progress calls, or emails between sessions if you would like, plus I have a range of online services that can assist you to develop your English at home at your own pace.

    **As I conduct tailored lessons for each individual student, I only have a limited availability each week. As a result, I must prioritise my ongoing students who require one-to-one sessions weekly, or twice weekly. If you are interested in developing your English rapidly in an engaging and fun way learning from a committed teacher with a high success rate, please contact me to see if I have an available slot for you.**

    Cours en anglais from a native English speaker with CELT
    I am a native English speaker and have a Certificate in English Language Teaching (CELT). I have previous experience of tutoring English and work using the Communicative Approach. I can plan lessons around what you want to work on - vocabulary, grammar, speaking, listening, reading or writing. I can teach you Business English or general English. I can work with students or adults and can work around your schedule. I can first meet you in a café, library or other public place in Annecy or nearby. I will be available to tutor in Annecy from mid June to mid September 2017. I am unavailable before this time. I prefer to teach using the communicative approach, but I have a good level of French if you are a beginner.

    Italian and English classes by a Master's Degree student
    Learning how to speak a new language opens your mind and provides you with a more flexible state of mind. That's why you should take the opportunity to learn English or Italian with a Master's degree student that is now attending a highly qualified program in four different European universities. I come from Italy and studied for more than 10 years English and French, which I can speak fluently, since I'm attending an international programme in a group composed by students from all over the world. I have a good knowledge of Italian, English and French grammar and I would like to help students or adults needing any type of help or support with these languages. I'm just 22 and I'm used to work with kids and students.

    rofesseur canadien de langue maternelle anglaise avec plus de dix ans d'expérience donne des cours privés aux enfants, jeunes adultes ou professionnels. J'utilise la méthode d'immersion totale lorsqu'il s'agit d'améliorer rapidement le compétences orales. Ma méthode est flexible et basée sur l’atteinte de vos objectifs. Quand il s'agit, en revanche, d'approfondir les connaissances générales de l'anglais, on travaillera sur les quatre compétences (écrire, lire, parler, écouter) en utilisant des documents authentiques. C'est à dire; extraits de films, articles sur des sujets divers, musique, mise en scène, et bien sûr la grammaire. Objectifs précis que je vous aiderai à atteindre rapidement : * Améliorer la prononciation (en se concentrant sur les petits détails qui vous permettront de vous approcher de l'accent d'un locuteur natif) * Enrichir votre vocabulaire (en utilisant efficacement un dictionnaire unilingue et un "collocations dictionary") * Améliorer votre compréhension de l'anglais parlé et écrit. * Pratiquer l'anglais parlé dans des situations authentiques (appels téléphoniques ou par Skype à des hotels, restos, etc.).

    French and English teacher
    Hi everyone, My name is Emma, I'm a certified FRENCH and ENGLISH teacher. I offer online classes. Every class comes with PERSONALIZED recordings, videos, textbooks and workbooks. I've developed my own method that will help you become fairly fluent in about 4 months (if you are serious and focused of course). Testimonies: 1. Sirva la presente para reconocer y recomendar ampliamente a Emmanuelle como una excelente Docente de Inglés y Francés. He estado tomando las clases con Emma por 1 año y mi avance ha sido excelente, empecé con un nivel básico y con el método de Emma aprendí el idioma rápidamente y en menos de un año ya era posible mantener conversaciones, en la actualidad me he dedicado a perfeccionarlo gracias a los audios que ella manda y el resumen de su clase. Estoy muy contento con sus clases y creo que ha sido una de mis mejores inversiones ya que me ha dado la oportunidad de obtener mejores trabajos, viajar y ver los resultados de este curso que no absorbe mi tiempo ya que es muy práctico y fácil. Emma también da clases de Francés y he empezado a tomar estas clases y de igual forma estoy avanzando rápidamente por lo que mi inversión se verá en pocos meses de práctica y clases con ella. Recomiendo ampliamente a la Profesora Emma ya que sus clases no solo permiten conocer un nuevo idioma sino que Emma te permite conocer la cultura y diferentes detalles que con otros Profesores no he obtenido, Emma se asegura de que entienda y plantea sus clases adecuadas a lo que necesito. Sus clases son como un traje hecho a la medida. Ella es muy profesional, siempre está atenta a mis preguntas y siempre me hace sentir que da más de lo que pago por la clase. Si necesita contactarme para cualquier aclaración por favor no dude en hacerlo, siempre estaré dispuesto a dar una buena retroalimentación de la Profesora Emma si así se requiere. Ing. Iván Aguilar 2. I am writing to provide my recommendation of Emmanuelle as a professor of language. I have been a French student of Emmanuelle for the last two months and I have already began to notice significant strides in my fluency. She immediately recognized where my primary struggles with French have been, and has now refocused her lessons to better tailor them to my needs. Emmanuelle tutoring sessions are efficient, well-planned, and very enjoyable. She has a strong command of several languages, making it easy for her to identify the needs of each student. However, most importantly, she has a natural ability to effectively engage her students in their learning process. I highly recommend Emmanuelle as a professor of language. Sincerely, B.C. May 13th, 2015 3. Emma is a wonderful teacher who is enthusiastic, funny and eager to teach French the way students simply love. Not only she is knowledgeable, but also has excellent teaching methods. She would go over the difficult concepts to make sure you fully understand and share simple steps to memorize grammar rules and vocabulary. By far Emma is the best French teacher that my daughter has had so far. She has helped her immensely. Not only during her lessons, but also Emma has helped her with any other questions or further clarifications after her lessons. She is very prompt and replies back in a very quick manner. Emma sends recordings of the summarized lessons. She explains in detail what the grammar rules are and teaches patterns that make it easier to remember. My high school child had a difficult time understanding French grammar, but after working with Emma for few months, she is making great progress, and seems to really enjoy learning French. Her pronunciation has remarkably improved as well. Also, Emma provides additional material: eBooks, recordings, and more. She is punctual, highly organized and carefully plans her lessons according to the student needs. We are very fortunate to have found her. Emma genuinely cares about your learning, and is quite helpful. From time to, time she would do revision, just to make sure you still remember the rules from previous chapters. My daughter has been working with Emma for close to a year now. All of her experiences are very positive. I would highly recommend her to be your French Tutor. You will see immediate results after few lessons. ~ GR from San Francisco Bay Area ~
