-Alex, 2018

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I was born in Chicago, USA and I grew up in California. I currently live in Belgium and Spain (Fall 2019) as an English teacher.

Teaching has been one of my greatest passions since I first started working as a teacher in Thailand in 2015. Later, I started teaching private classes over Skype and in Spain. Private classes, above all, have been so rewarding to teach as I love building relationships with my students and watching them grow and improve over time.

Over the years I have had students who began classes when they knew only a few words in English, and C1 students with nearly perfect English who were looking to practice with a native speaker and learn vocabulary.

My ESL teaching methodology is to teach the language in a way that is practical to your life and experience. I personalize every class to what each individual student is interested in learning, or I create a theme for the class to help conversation flow and teach new vocabulary. While grammar is important, I value even more the ability to speak and understand confidently and fluidly.

Education

I am an online student at Front Range University in Colorado, USA studying for a BA in English Literature and Education.

I currently hold a B1 Spanish Language.

Experience / Qualifications

3+ Years experience teaching private English classes for students of all ages, English levels, and nationalities.

Experience with ILETS (oral test) preparation for students from A1 to C1 levels.

3+ Years volunteering in ESL classrooms and English Academies in Thailand, Morocco, and the USA.

2+ Years experience working as a freelance writer and has taught creative writing classes in English to kids.

Anusha
Economics (Secondary to University levels) and English (Primary level) Tutoring
Economics classes for University level students will be based on student's needs (some suggestions: Econometrics, Microeconomics, Quantitative Economics). For school students, it can involve advanced learning or basic Economic knowledge (aligned to student's needs). English classes will involve writing and speaking practice (based on the student's existing knowledge). I tend to explain things pretty well. I always try to assign homework for further practice. Times can be discussed with me and I do accommodate students based on mutual availability.

Marina
English language lessons, speaking, reading, writing
I believe that language is a powerful tool today. Not only does it help us understand the world from a different perspective, but it also teaches us the culture of the people who use it. I have had the opportunity to work with teenagers for 5 years now as a student associate in a science center, as a mentor and a lecturer in a different field. What I have learned from that experience is that first and foremost one must become a friend with their student, to understand their needs and their attitudes. I will do my best to make the classes fun by combining audio and visual material in my teaching. My field of study is Social and Cultural Anthropology.

Verdiana
Learn Italian from a native speaker: grammar, oral and written skills!
Hello, I'm Verdiana and I'm a Master student at KU Leuven. I tutor students and offer private lessons since I was 16, thus I've gained quite some experience on the topic. My main focus is on foreign language because I've studied them for 5 years. Here in Leuven though, I would like to teach Italian, my native language. During a one-hour-class, you'll get the chance to explore the (difficult but fascinating) Italian grammar, to practice both your oral and written skills and to learn some useful Italian phrases. Don't hesitate to contact me in case of any question!

This class is aimed at individuals (either kids, students or adults) who wish to learn it.

For the teaching purposes, throughout the classes, I will use different highly-rated textbooks of local editions, effective YouTube channels, interesting articles.

The goals, needs, expectations will be discussed in person with every student and adapted towards personality. The program and classes content will also depend on the prior mentioned factors. Feel free to contact me for questions and classes.

Rami
Learn ARABIC for conversation or academic purposes (proper dialect "Fusha" or a variety of other middle eastern dialects)
As a language, Arabic may seem scary, whether you hear two people speaking it with a bit of an aggressive tone, or see the terrifying Alphabet being used and written in a different direction! However! Fear not! I can assure you, i felt the same way about Dutch, and was terrified to try and articulate the words and their meanings. However, after a year of going through a successful active learning course (which our classes will follow a similiar method to), and enough practice, i could confidently say i can hold my grounds, with the fear of the Dutch language being at bay ! In my 2 years of teaching experience, without the "over-use" of "English or other" languages and starting right from the beginning with Arabic, some students and friends of mine were able to speak Arabic with me, in addition to writing full essays, and even understood the general grammatical structure of the language, all of which took no more than a couple of months. However, it is necessary to keep in mind that Arabic is the second toughest language to learn after Chinese "Mandrin", meaning that expectations should be kept realistic, with time and practice being key.A year should suffice someone to be able to claim that they are at a "A1-B2" LEVEL, which is almost in the intermediate Zone. For our classes, THREE TYPES or METHODS could be chosen from: 1- The active learning extensive Method 2- The "school" Method 3- The "specific university subject tutoring" Method. 1- For the first and second methods, i will usually devise a specialized text book (Word/PDF, no need to hurt trees and print...) which will include all that we need throughout the course from necessary readings, literature, and grammar of the language. this book will be modified accordingly to the purpose of learning the language that you could clarify to me beforehand (whether academic in a specific field of science, or any other purposes...) 2- However, if your goal is purely conversation, and does not include learning proper Arabic (Fusha), the method of teaching differs a little. Here only the "school method" applies. Let me elaborate: In schools, we are taught to read and write "MUM, DAD" before we learn our ABCs, Thus "conversation" will be the main focus, accompanied by brief and on the surface piecing of the principles of the grammar, punctuation, and other related aspects whenever a new one is at hand. 3-Finally, if you are studying any of the Arts or Majors in University, and you need specific help concerning Arabic Subjects (Ba. Master. PHD levels), specific short classes, through the third method, will be offered, and through which we can: answer all your question, explain anything that you are having trouble with, and specific help that could also be offered according to your needs.
