    Language lessons and English tutoring for all levels by an enthusiastic teacher

    Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
    Hey,
    Would you like to improve your English? Do you want to be able to communicate better at work? Then you've come to the right place.
    I studied English at Utrecht University and then did a master's degree in literature in Scotland (St Andrews). Then I moved to Poland, where my daily communication is in English. I have six years of experience in international companies. I am currently in the process of getting my CELTA certificate.

    In the first lesson I would like to get to know you - what is your level, your goal and what are your interests?
    My philosophy is that a lesson should be interesting and stimulating. That's why I tune in to you personally. This could be for example:
    - Talking a lot so that you become self-confident
    - A lot of talking where I constantly interrupt you to improve you
    - Focused work on a part that you are having trouble with
    - Business English: we can use examples from your own work
    - Role-playing to practice certain situations
    - Discuss literature to take your English to the very highest level

    I'd love to hear what you want to get out of the lessons, and together we'll make sure it works!

    Hey!
    My name is Syme and I tutor English and Dutch. I have a passion for language - I studied Journalism and English Language and Culture and have a Masters in Literature from St Andrews (Scotland). I like to write, read and share my enthusiasm.
    I also like to go on an adventure. After my studies I moved to Poland, because I wanted to learn more about the eastern part of Europe. I liked it so much that I've been living here for almost seven years now.
    I am currently following the Cambridge English teacher training course.

    Student Cambridge English Teacher Training
    Hello, Nice to meet you! I am a native Dutch speakers and giving private Dutch lessons. I offer the following: - Conversation classes - Business Dutch - Dutch for daily usage - Literature classes (if you want to take your Dutch to the next level) I cater my lessons towards the student - in the first session, I want to get to know you, your level and your goals and interests. I will then draw up a lesson plan together with you, so we can focus on your personal goals. I take a patient and engaging approach - languages are learned by practicing, not by attending lectures. A bit about myself: I studied journalism, English philology and have a Masters degree in modern literature from the University of St Andrews (Scotland). After my studies, I moved to Poland where I worked in IT and HR before becoming a teacher. As I live in Poland, I only offer online classes. Moving to a country where I did not speak the language really helped me improve as a teacher - I know how hard it can be! Are you interested or do you have more questions? Feel free to reach out!

    Conversational English: Conversation Practice and Improvement
    I teach conversational English. The initial purpose of my lessons is to get my students to practice speaking English. "Practice makes perfect", it's true, but during our practice sessions, we will soon discover our weak spots and we will have to address them. The real purpose is not just practice but IMPROVEMENT. So we will dedicate a portion of our sessions together to fixing pronunciation and learning the proper way to use tenses and grammar in everyday speech. By the end of this course, you should be able to speak English fluently and confidently.

    Experiència de més de 20 anys donant classes d'anglès i català a grups reduïts d'ESO i Batxillerat i classes de repàs en el sector de les Humanitats. Doy clases de inglés desde hace muchos años. He impartido a grupos reducidos y a particulares de repaso (ESO y Bachillerato). Me desplazo. Busco estabilidad y continuidad para todo el curso. Enseñar es mi vocación. Por las mañanas trabajo en una empresa de telemárketing en BCN en un ambiente multicultural donde el inglés es nuestra lengua vehicular y a partir de las 16h tengo disponibilidad.

I was born in Barcelona... a long time ago. I grow up in this town, but now I live a bit far from here. I studied at the University of Barcelona and in Huddersfield (near Shefield, Halifax, Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool,...not very far from York: quite nice places and better people), and I've been teaching Catalan, Spanish, Phillsofy, History and English for a long time...since I was  16. What happened? Very short, I promise: I was walking down the street two years ago, from just opposite this private school, and I thought  myself: well, you might enter this place and see. I like English language very much... and the UK,... but I don' t have a poster of the Queen on my bedroom's wall. It was a sort of a blind date. And there she was: her smile, her diligence, effectiveness. Eva listened to me. And after two weeks she was texting me for a class. Please, Xavier, can you cover for some classes?  And here I am. (That was in the academy English Studio, untill13th March, when the lady in charge said literally that she would pass my 59 students to another teacher because I had no Internet at home, as I had recently moved to another town and had not had time to set the internet) #.................... Morning shift: Professional Objective: English teacher.   Professional experience More than 15 years in several Contact Centers as an Agent or as a Team Leader or  Supervisor.

    EFL/ESL Online English Language Tutor (Individuals)
    My lessons are student-centred, engaging, and flexible! Lessons are continuously adapted to suit the individual; every lesson is structured based on the needs of the student. The focus of lessons will initially be based on a student needs assessment carried out at the start of your course, and subsequent lessons will be adapted based on your progress throughout the duration of a specific course. Specific learning areas may include: * Refining pronunciation * Practicing everyday language and conversational skills * Exam preparation, focusing on specific grammar and/or vocabulary * Reading comprehension and practice * Writing correction and practice * CV and Cover letter drafting * Job interview preparation Lessons are conducted almost entirely in English. This has shown to be the most effective way for students to learn a foreign or second language! It is recommended that you book an initial course of at least 20 hours.

    (I)GCSE English Literature / IB English Literature
    Having difficulties analysing poems and prose in your (I) GCSE / IB English Literature course? Looking to amp your essays up a notch and finally get that A/A* or 6/7 that you have been dreaming of? I am here to help. The first thing to remember: though analysing works of literature isn't always fun, everybody can master the techniques of how to do it. But learning takes time, which the school teacher may often lack. Indeed, it has been my own experience that English teachers often choose width over depth, and so discussions are cut short for the sake of covering all elements of the teaching programme, leaving many interesting aspects of a particular work unexplored. Or sometimes it's just the attention that wanders off as the teacher is explaining these pesky concepts of "writer's voice", "writer's tone", "meter", "rhymescheme" and so on. Let me assure you: that, too, happens even to the best of us. What I can offer you is exactly what a teacher normally does not time for: exploring a work of literature in as much detail (both analytical and technical) as it takes to push the quality of your essays up to the desired level. My approach is informed by IB / (I)GSCE Eng Lit course guidelines to make sure that the quality of your answer would be developed in accordance with what examiners want to see. Armed with a deep passion for literature on the one hand (reading and writing poems and short stories are one of my favorite things to do) and knowledge of ways of critical analysis (obtained in IB English Lit and reinforced by philosophy courses on university level) which are of tremendous importance in literary analysis as well, I will show you how to deconstruct any piece, how to place it in its cultural context, and make educated guesses about the links between cultural context and the author's choice of stylistical devices. And best of all - unlike in the classroom, the learning experience is tailored to you (based on your way of learning / remembering) and delivered in a highly interactive way! The skills described above, coupled with general essay writing tips will lend authority and style to your summative essays and exam answers, boosting your academic confidence. Ready to leave unsatisfactory essays in the past? Then contact me today!
