Accent Reduction - English Tutors & Teachers
I'm a native English speaker who is currently living in Canada. I have a bachelor's degree and my TEFL certification. I have experience teaching classes and individual students. I have been teaching English for the past 10 years in Thailand, Spain, China, Brazil, and Indonesia. I speak fluently in English, French, Portuguese and Spanish. I'm available to help students from any language group. Hope to hear from you soon!
The atmosphere of my lessons is relaxed, comfortable, and professional. You will do at least 70% of the talking. You’ll gain confidence from our lessons, and this will encourage you to practice your English in public without fear. Most lessons will include the following components: 1. “Small talk:” A social conversation about, for example, your recent weekend activities. 2. Review of our previous lesson. 3. Accent reduction and pronunciation practice: Reading aloud from a short text. 4. Main activity: We'll use a text, video, or audio sample as the vehicle to learn the new and reinforce the old. 5. Closing: Review today's lesson and plan for next lesson. During the trial lesson, we’ll find out a little about each other. We’ll talk about your needs and interests in any special vocabulary, reading and writing skills, and speaking and listening proficiency. I will ask you to estimate your level of proficiency now, and what level you want to achieve in the next three months. My areas of specialty: Vocabulary enrichment; business/professional English; writing skills; effective meetings, presentations, and interviews; and taking an advanced student to the next level. I hope I’ve shared enough information to help you decide if we might be a good match. If you have any questions before you make your decision, please send me a message.
Hey! I'm Lewis and i'm a motivated and experienced English teacher. I have a relaxed and encouraging teaching style and I structure my classes to meet the needs and goals of each student. If you'd like to practice speaking, we can do more conversation-based activities. If you'd like to work on grammar, we can do so. Reserve a trial class and we can talk about what you'd like to focus on. And, if you're not sure which areas of your English you need to work on, I can choose the most appropriate activities based on your level and mistakes that I notice throughout our classes :) _ Learning languages online can be tedious, so I present elements of the English language in an interesting and dynamic way and I'm always equipped with engaging conversation topics. Like you, I also learnt another language as an adult, so I fully understand and appreciate the challenges involved and I know how to make the process easier. _ IELTS and TOEFL exam students welcome! _ Students will receive: a motivated, attentive teacher; well-planned classes; student-orientated, level-appropriate activities; homework (if wanted) and reference sheets for any grammar or vocabulary we discuss. (Not sure about your level? > http://gostudylink.net/en/support/levels) _ I can: correct your errors, perfect your grammar, expand your vocabulary, help you with exam preparation, improve your fluency and confidence when speaking, reduce your accent and improve your pronunciation and give you reading and writing tasks as homework that I will grade before the following class. I love to teach phrasal verbs, expressions and colloquial English (especially helpful if you live, or plan to live in an English-speaking country) _ Send me a message to ask me any questions you'd like! :) _ Due to a new teaching position, from January 2019 I will only be available between 16.30-18.30 Mon-Fri (UK time). _ Just need a teacher to grade your writing? (IELTS etc.). Send me a message!

My name is Flo, I am bilingual, a native speaker of American English, and a language instructor with eight years of experience. As a multilingual globetrotter, I am passionate about travel, language, and culture. Besides being an online teacher, I am also a freelance writer. As a language instructor, I have helped students with no knowledge of a language become fluent within six months, but I've also helped many advanced students reach a higher level of fluency. I have worked for language centers and corporate clients such as Berlitz and IBM, but I've also done a lot of private tutoring with students of all ages, levels, and backgrounds. I'm a certified Berlitz instructor and I focus on immersion to teach my students the target language. I take pride in being able to help my students identify core issues and become confident English speakers. Whether you're a beginner or an advanced learner, I look forward to helping you improve your fluency and reach your language-learning goals! I can help you prepare for English exams such as TOEIC, TOEFL, and IELTS, help you write an excellent resume and prepare for job interviews, or work on business skills such as networking and negotiating. Once we have had our first class, I will send you a detailed analysis and lesson plan. From there, you will receive a pdf document with notes on grammar corrections, vocabulary, idioms, and pronunciation after each and every class. By taking notes rather than interrupting you while speaking, I will help you develop fluency while still offering thorough instruction on how to improve your syntax, word choice, and intonation. I look forward to meeting you!
Hello! I love talking to people and facilitating their learning. I have a post-graduate teaching qualification (PGCE) from the UK and TEFL certificate, with a wide experience in education, and I have given courses to people aged 3-63 for several years. I have also recently completed a Teaching IELTS and a Business English TEFL course. I aim to create a relaxed and enjoyable teaching environment, whilst being thorough and working with each student's needs, and I am easy to talk to! So don't worry if you are nervous or don't feel confident - I can help you with that. Have you forgotten your English? Know how to read and write, but afraid to speak...? Would you like to practise your English more often? I can help you to improve your English! The sessions concentrate on the practical use of the language, conversation and pronunciation. They are mainly intended to be a relaxed and enjoyable method of learning and to get used to speaking, but can also be combined with grammar and can be adapted to suit all ages and levels (although I am not currently taking complete beginners, sorry). I can also offer intensive courses. I often work with students of intermediate-advanced levels to help perfect their spoken English. I have helped students prepare for IELTS, TOEFL and Cambridge speaking exams - a recent student of mine got 111/120 on the TOEFL exam! I have also assisted students with confidence, to achieve more natural rhythm and intonation, and even issues concerning being understood, communicating effectively, politeness and cultural differences in language!! **Dear current students! If you can't find the time you want, you can send me a message**
