Reviews (5)

Great lesson with experienced teacher. I needed to review some pronunciation in English and Clive was the perfect teacher. Relaxed, professional, dedicated, educated, former diplomat, understands the needs of international business people and students. He also gives a lot of interesting feedback and additional information such literature, links, etc.
Clive is a great English teacher that i strongly recommend. After a first informal level assessment, Clive made some suggestions for our programme (5 times 1h30) based on my professional needs. He demonstrated adaptability and was happy to adjust the lesson to last minute requests from my side. Clive is always punctual and has his material ready for the lesson. In a nutshell, Clive is a great value for money for those who are looking for specific English reinforcement.
GREAT!
A profitable lesson
Clive is a great teacher – passionate, well structured and highly professional.He is extremely helpful and very encouraging and I much enjoy his classes. His lessons helped me to improve quickly as well as to feel much more confident with my English.

English for beginners , learn to speak english with me via webcam
English is a West Germanic language that was first spoken in early medieval England and is now a global lingua franca. Named after the Angles, one of the Germanic tribes that migrated to England, it ultimately derives its name from the Anglia (Angeln) peninsula in the Baltic Sea. It is closely related to the Frisian languages, but its vocabulary has been significantly influenced by other Germanic languages, particularly Norse (a North Germanic language), as well as by Latin and Romance languages, especially French. English is the third most widespread native language in the world, after Standard Chinese and Spanish. It is the most widely learned second language and is either the official language or one of the official languages in almost 60 sovereign states. There are more people who have learned it as a second language than there are native speakers. English is the most commonly spoken language in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, Ireland and New Zealand, and it is widely spoken in some areas of the Caribbean, Africa and South Asia. So as you can see we widely need to speak english in nowadays , it's necessary once you are abroad and don't speak the language of the country . Let's start together to learn english , step by step we'll achieve to highest result. I am experienced french teacher , but I also teach english for beginners , armenian , russian and dutch for beginners . I am waiting for you my lovely students

Cours d'ANGLAIS - devenir fluent en anglais, communiquer en anglais sans préjugé
Acteur de formation ayant vécu à l'étranger (Londres et Toronto), j'adore l'anglais et j'aimerais que tout le monde sache le parler! Il y a en effet un retard en France quant à l'anglais, qui rappelons-le est parlé dans le monde entier et est la première langue de communication! Et cela vient principalement du manque de confiance à l'oral. C'est pourquoi avec vous je travaillerai avant tout sur l'aisance et la confiance mais aussi sur la prononciation et le rythme.

French or English classes for children and adults, conversational or structured
I'm offering French or English classes for children and adults where they would learn through games and conversations, according to their age and language level. I have a lot of experience teaching foreign languages to children, as I have been a teacher assistant and an international au pair before. I can also help out with homework. For adults, I can do conversational French or English lessons where the subjects vary depending on the person's interests and language level as well. I can also help choose and work from a book, if the person wishes a more structured learning environment. About me, I'm a French native currently studying at the University of Maastricht, I speak English and French fluently and I'm always willing to practice my Spanish with people!

Shahnoza
English via Skype, convenient and in a comfy (your) chair; a lot of speaking and grammar
My name is Shahnoza, and I am offering English classes to everyone, whether you are a student who feels a bit self-conscious about their English or you are a grown-up who wants to broaden the opportunities and horizons. I always try to avoid formalities and make my classes (reasonably) informal and friendly. If you have (and with me you always will, I'll simply make you talk to me) some stories, I will gladly listen to them and help you develop your ideas. My goal is to make my students speak the language and understand why they should use this or that word. I believe that every person is a whole world and I would like to know this world and help my students show this world to people. Can't wait to work with you! :)

English Classes (Private or Group) and Proofing/Editing Services
CELTA-qualified native English teacher with 2+ years experience teaching kids, teens, students and adults from all backgrounds. I'm also a journalist and rMA graduate (Cultural Analysis) with a lot of writing and editorial experience. I've taught general English, exam preparation (Cambridge, IELTS) and academic English in the UK, Spain and Amsterdam. I'm young, smart and casual – I prefer informal classes with a lot of fun activities, video and popular culture. But I'm also a specialist in high level writing and academic skills. I can help most with writing at all levels! I offer structured 1-on-1 classes tailored to the student's needs, more informal conversation classes, group classes (up to 6), or proofing and editing services – let me know if you need help with cover letters, applications, university coursework or writing of any kind! Rates vary with type and class size (groups and conversation classes are cheaper than structured 1-on-1). The minimum price shown is for conversation classes – more structure and preparation of materials will cost more.

Fun English and/or German Classes. ❝Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere.❞
I would like to offer my help in English and/or German to those who would like to improve their oral and written language. Being a continuous language learner myself (I am currently learning French), I understand the difficulties that come with learning a new language but also know how important it is to read and speak as much as possible. Music can also be a great way to learn a new language. About me; I lived in the United States for the past 10 years, I just recently moved back to Europe. I enjoy meeting new people, love to travel and spend time with my loved ones. I hope to see you soon.
