    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.**

    About Me

    My name is Miss Thalia and I have been an English teacher for 10 years in New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom.

    I enjoy teaching and learning, so I love to share my enthusiasm for education and languages with students who are eager to learn.

    I am a committed teacher and I am happy to go above and beyond to ensure my students get the best results.

    When I am not teaching, I love cooking, cycling, hiking, reading, writing and creating. I really adore the English language and there is not a day that goes by where I don't use it.

    Progress quickly in English.
    English-speaking Canadian teacher with more than 10 years of experience gives private lessons to children, young adults or professionals. I use the total immersion method when it comes to quickly improving oral skills. My method is flexible and based on achieving your goals. When it comes, however, to deepening the general knowledge of English, we will work on the four skills (write, read, speak, listen) using authentic documents. That is to say; film clips, articles on various subjects, music, staging, and of course grammar. Specific objectives that I will help you reach quickly: * Improve pronunciation (focusing on the small details that will allow you to approach the accent of a native speaker) * Enrich your vocabulary (effectively using a unilingual dictionary and a "collocations dictionary") * Improve your understanding of spoken and written English. * Practice spoken English in authentic situations (phone calls or Skype to hotels, restaurants, etc.).

    Learning English can be challenging and be time consuming. It is also a very valuable language to learn as it can also create many opportunities. This is why I'am offering a one to one private tutoring course to teach you English at a speed that suits you. As native English speaker, I will also help you improve in areas with regards to accent and word pronunciation.

    Adults and teenagers: learn English in a good mood with an experienced American.
    My goal: to help you enjoy learning English! For this, I teach adults and adolescents the PPP pedagogy: 1. Introduce: I first present the subject of the lesson. 2. Practice: you practice to be sure you understand correctly (in writing, orally, or by listening) 3. Play: We play with the material. To note: With Presentation, we touch on all methods of receiving information. With Practice, we are sure you understand the lesson well. And finally, with the creativity of the game, you create a longer term memory on the neurological level.

    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.

    Learn the English language by working on oneself
    Graduated with a Bachelor of English obtained at the Sorbonne and a Master Coach obtained at the International Coaching Institute of Geneva, I propose an innovative individualized pedagogy that combines the teaching of English and coaching techniques on Self-confidence. I believe that a student who has confidence in him and knows his value will be much more successful than a student with a loss of confidence.

    Mark
    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 ...) Please do not hesitate to contact me for further details.
