English for Beginners, Novices, and Advanced Speakers!

This class is for all levels of spoken and written English. The focus is to learn how to speak and write like a native speaker. Languages separate us, but learning languages brings us together! Whether you are a beginner or almost fluent, come learn English with me and we'll make progress together.

I love languages and the connections they allow us to make with each other. When we share our time with one another, expect to progress in your English through cultural exchange, laughter, and fun. :)

About Me

"History is boring." "It's so boring." "Ugh." "Why do I need to learn this?"

These quotes are so unfortunate, because it's just not true. I tell my students, "social studies is everything, because everything is social studies." We engage in discussions about current events, connecting what's happening now with what happened in the past. We question the narratives that had been taught to us in elementary school and are still taught to us through the media. Most importantly, we have fun doing it. We watch videos and share our impressions. We engage with texts and decipher just what the heck these (mostly) old, white men were saying (although Thomas Jefferson was only 32 when he wrote the Declaration of Independence!)

I believe that if something isn't engaging, it's not worth doing. It's why I make my classes interesting, so history isn't just something worth learning, it's something to become a part of.

Corinne
English: pronunciation (British or American) or conversation. NO grammar lessons.
I have facilitated workshops and given classes throughout my career all over the world. English pronunciation is essential these days because English is spoken everywhere and all the time. I followed specialized training such as the verb tonal method, Feldenkrais or mental coaching. We are therefore going to work in a slightly different way by combining articulatory techniques, movement, rhythm, intonation, warming up of the jaw and tongue, stretching of the neck, neck and shoulders to arrive to very fast results.

Xavier
English teacher. Like learning while teaching. Love feeling my students enjoy their learning.
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.

Busco estabilidad y continuidad en Academia o similar para todo el curso y en verano. Disponible también para empresas y online. También profesor de catalán y español. My name is Xavier. 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.

Yolanda
ESL/EFL Online English Language Tutor - Individuals
My lessons are student-centred, flexible, and fun! 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. Learning areas identified may include: * Refining your 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.

Learn English Grammar And Paragraph Writing for Beginners, Intermediates and advanced ( A1 / A2 / A3 / B1 / B2 / B3 / C1 / C2 )
These sessions are focused on English for people who encounter challenges in writing, speaking, reading and listening and lack correct grammar and skills. We would develop situational vocabulary, corresponding verbs and adverbs that help transmit more precision when using English. Our mission would be to see where you currently are in the language, strengthen any weak points and create awareness about points that need extra attention. Together we would go through all the English aspects that you should be aware of and implicate the knowlege aquired in real intresting topics and activities. These classes tend to take place in a more relaxed yet fun and stimulating environment. I constantly provide feedback to students about their progress and assign homework to ameliorate the practical and theoretical aspects of the English. This class is all about making English accessible and easy to learn to all through various social and interactive stimulation You may request a full refund and get your money back after your class if you believe that it doesn't suit you .

“Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere.” – Chinese Proverb Teaching is my passion and I would like to share that with you. I specialize in teaching English and am TEFL qualified. My courses are tailor-made for each student and will focus on your needs and desires. I like to encourage and motivate students to learn in a fun, effective way.

Christina Yen-Chun,
Chinese Mandarin, 8 years of experience, Daily Chinese, patient, 1 by 1
Chinese is both deep and interesting. Its grammar is simple, but the reading and writing are full of "surprises". I am Taiwanese and very happy to share and teach my native language. I live in Delémont, Switzerland. In Taiwan, I taught Chinese to foreigners; i have been in international business for almost 20 years and have been exposed to cultures from over 50 different countries. Everyone is always full of freshness and curiosity for Chinese ... Now I will share with you the pleasure and the harvest of learning Chinese. My course is mainly oral, and at the end I hope to be able to speak to you in Chinese. The goal is obviously to be able to express oneself. I personalize all my documents so that the level corresponds to everyone's interests. My students are regardless of their age. (They are teenagers, adults and even retirees) I also created a "WhatsApp" group to promote learning on a daily basis because it is important to continue having fun. I am really passionate about my job and would love to teach you my native language.
