    Teacher of English for adults and children of any age and level

    I teach adults and children of any age and any level,

    The core of my approach is:

    - Practice, practice, practice!
    Language proficiency is not knowledge but a SKILL. Every single theoretical topic should be practiced. For that reason, all my courses are full of practical tasks.

    - Having fun while learning.
    Only by having fun can your studying be effective. That’s why the practical tasks of my courses are interactive games. Another crucial point is 100 % clarity of the course theory — learning objectives for every course is made clear from the start.

    - Focus:
    There is too much information nowadays. It’s more and more difficult to navigate through it. So it’s important to have high-quality curated information for your studies: precisely what you need to address your specific needs: a real language for real life.

    - Authentic language:
    My courses are free from artificial phrases that can still be found in textbooks. I provide only genuine language spoken by people in real life.

    - A teacher’s mission is to inspire and to give direction, not just transfer knowledge into a student’s head.
    The best result is when students can learn by themselves, and when they are motivated to use every opportunity to master a foreign language. I will readily share strategies and resources for independently studying foreign languages.

    - Result vs process.
    A foreign language is not about good grades. Its real purpose is to improve your life. That’s why each lesson is another step toward your better life. No unnecessary information but precisely what you need to achieve your goals.

    French is a beautiful language but the first thing you will learn is "each rule has an exception".

I propose you to teach you french with a context according to your needs, background and personality! Let me help you unlock your french level quickly!

    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.

    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 and changing needs 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 * Job interview preparation Lessons are conducted in English, since this has shown to be the most effective way for students to learn a foreign or second language. It is recommended to book a course of at least 20 hours to start with.
