About Me

I am a native British English speaker and bring my experience and love of teaching English to motivated students and adults of all ages and abilities in Geneva. I have been an English language teacher to learners from all over the world and from all backgrounds, ages and abilities for 7 years both in the UK and abroad.

As a native speaker I can provide a deeper level of knowledge and application of English than many second language speakers, especially for phrasing and pronunciation work. Whether you are a complete beginner or an intermediate or advanced English speaker who is looking to improve or perfect your English skills for yourself, your studies, your job or your business, I can help you.

I will work to create classes based on your individual needs, learning style and existing abilities and provide lots of opportunities for learning and practice through speaking, writing, listening and reading. My experience and some of the latest studies and theories for learning a second language have shown, that making the content of lessons fun, relaxing, engaging and meaningful to learner's life and experience, makes for the most effective and memorable lessons. However, any materials or books you want to work on together for study, work or any other reason will also prove a valuable resource.

It's difficult, but it can be a lot of fun and very rewarding to learn a second language (as I am discovering with French!) so I do look forward to hearing from you and gettin' you going on better English.

It can be a course focused on conversation, pronunciation or writing. Or all of that! The class is designed according to the learner's objectives. Should it aim at improving your knowledge and skills, passing an exam, trying to get into a particular school, or at preparing for a job interview or simply for the daily use at work, the class will be tailored to meet your needs, as efficiently is possible. We can focus on speaking, listening or writing. Or all of these skills!

Carelle
Courses in language, culture and Italian literature
I'm afraid my letter is a bit long, but it's worth reading. It's early 2012 that I hear about an Italian scholarship. So, after my baccalaureate, I decided to take the steps to continue my studies in Italy. For this you had to enroll in a private Italian language school in partnership with the Embassy of Italy in my country Gabon, take Italian lessons for 6 months after which you are subject to an examination that you must to validate for obtaining your visa was one of the conditions. On August 27, 2018 I flew to Italy aboard Lufthansa a German company, obviously equipped with a student visa that I would add to my file so that there is no doubt. I dream of becoming an accountant as one of my uncles, having a bac economy too, for me it sticks. But my mother who is a teacher, inviting me to study to teach Italian, I do not tell myself why not, tale of the shortage of Italian teacher in my country, so everything is easy for them: integration into the public service etc. In addition it is a language that I like since very small, so I decided to embark on this adventure After my License I decided to try my luck as exchange student (Erasmus) in Geneva. So I moved to Geneva in September 2017, but unfortunately Italy removes my scholarship, I unfortunately combined with money problems, but with the help of my parents I was able to finish 'year. I propose myself as a teacher of language, culture and Italian literature, share my modest journey with you.

Mina
English teacher with plenty of experience and patience
If you want to learn English language, I am here to help you. It is not difficult as it may look, but you have to be persistent if you want to reach your goal. Let me show you that English classes can be fun and studying can be interesting. I'm an English teacher for more than six years and I have plenty of experience. At the beginning of the course, studying material is particularly selected for each student depending on their level of knowledge. After the type of course is determined, focus is on the weak spots and improving whatever skill a student is lacking in. Speaking is always emphasized. In class students can suggest other materials, books etc and ask for lessons they want to study. Asking questions is always a good thing and cooperation between teacher and a student is crucial. If you agree, contact me and start your English course today! I'm looking forward to helping you learn English!

My mother tongue is French, but I'v been studying in a billingual master program (that turned out to be mostly English) for almost 3 years, and I am redacting my master thesis in english. I am then quite fluent in this language, though I mostly work either with popular vocabulary, or academical one. I am sure i'll be helpful with any kind of needs, or demands! Looking forward to help you! Cheers!
