ICAS - English Tutors & Teachers
Greetings! I should love to be your teacher so that your English can become confident and colourful at a sole swoop. My name is Tom, an English teacher, having led 3000+ online lessons, 3000+ face-to-face lessons, and 200+ group lessons. I am fully aware that learning languages, especially English, is vastly time-consuming, not to mention the infinite deal of effort that inevitably needs to be put therein. Obviously, since we humans have no USB ports through which we can absorb much information in a blink of an eye, mastering a tongue does not happen from one day to another – it is a longsome and gradual process. Even for the most talented English-learners, bettering their level from elementary to advanced takes AT LEAST a full year – if not longer –, provided that they incessantly remain determined and hard-working in the meantime. Therefore, English courses offering to perfect your English to such heights where the sky is the limit within a ridiculously short amount of time all embark with you on an IMPOSSIBLE mission. You CANNOT learn the splendours of an entire language, which has been evolving for over 1.5 millennia, in just a month or whatever the promised length be. Under my tutorship however, unlike many of the so-called tutors who merely CONVERSE with you and nothing more, I shall actually be TEACHING you a lot. In addition, since the service provided to you constitutes one-on-one contact, each lesson, which is tailored to your individual abilities and knowledge, is focused upon your utmost satisfaction. You will see that as I am charting your progress, your weak points are going to be patched up little by little. Please note that my aim is not at all stalling for more and more of your limited time and money but readying you with care for the obstacles of English that come up in everyday life. I am basically at your disposal for three major reasons: 1) to show you very effective ways as to how to practise – combat – English, 2) to ensure that your English-related plans come true, and 3) to dub you a champion of the English language. In the end, after you have managed to forge the crude burden of English into your own fine armour, you will be able to wield it and wander the world in its splendour on your own – without my guidance. Before you want to entrust me with the above tasks, nevertheless, please hear me out yet. What I guarantee is BY NO MEANS that the content of our sessions will magically pop in your head while you comfortably sit back and listen to me. It is YOUR hard-working attitude that is the key to your success, because – let us admit it – without the old-fashioned blood-sweating, nothing, not even your untapped knowledge shall strengthen up! Now that I have laid the table for you, let us have a glance upon what in particular can be found on the menu, shall we? ____________________________________________________________________________ Private English tutoring sessions Topmost objectives: • Mastering British English pronunciation and intonation • Gaining hastened fluency and bolstered self-confidence • Useful and real-life situational exercises • Differentiating British English from American English • Guaranteed word-hoard enrichment to a vast extent • Patterns and erratic tendencies in English spelling • Painstakingly grasping grammar and tenses of English • Assorted synonyms, their distinct shades of meaning • Never-before-seen module-methods and exercises • Exceedingly detailed and thorough clarifications • At any age and level are tutorees welcome
My name is Kat Rogan. I'm from the United States. And I love languages. I have been a professional language trainer for over 14 years. I have been traveling around the world and meeting people from just about every country I can think of. I started teaching English in China in 2006 and have traveled all over the place since that time. And the biggest thing I can say I have learned about myself is, I really love languages and cultures. I spend a lot of time practicing Chinese; and I totally love it. I also love Spanish. Born and raised in the United States, Spanish is my second language. I studied Spanish in high school and university, but I know I need to improve. Though I can understand most what is being said in Spanish, my speaking does need some practice. That's why I know how important it is to keep practicing my speaking ability. Or I could lose it. Though I am not too bad at speaking languages, I do know the feeling of not being able to speak at the level I would like. So I keep trying to learn new methods and systems of learning. And I really like to learn more about people, and their cultures. This is why I love learning languages. And this is also why I really love my job. Kat Rogan Qualifications & Experience My education encompasses a long career as a news reporter and journalist as a Mass Communication student from the University of Utah. I also have a degree in Business Management from Weber State University. My master's education is in Multi-Media Film, MFA. I specialize in all forms of professional communication in business, interviewing, writing, examinations, basic conversation, and kid's phonics training. And I am TEFL certified to teach children. Having been a language trainer and learner for 14 years, I have taught thousands of students from around the world. In my experience, I have developed dedicated lesson planning systems, specifically designed for the student depending on their needs. Interestingly, I have found many ESL students with difficulties reaching their true potential. I have also found traditional models of learning to be rather rigid and outdated for progressive thought in the high-paced technologically-driven communication world we live in today. These issues are very important when it comes to speaking at high levels or high-pressure situations. My system brings together the best learning programs into one comprehensive lesson planning system and is adjustable to each specific need and goal of the learner. Some of my classes have helped my students to pass entry exams, get great jobs, get into great universities, succeed at all levels of speaking, writing, and communication for professional and interpersonal use all while having fun. My classes are fun, and I really love teaching that's why I still do it after all these years. Education 1. BS Business Management/Finance 2. BS Mass Communication/Journalism 3.

Hello everyone. My name is Russell. I have taught English for many years. I have taught all levels, from beginner to advanced, or from levels A1 to C2. Mainly, I have taught in Cape Town, but I have taught students from all over the world. I like to find out what interests my students, as most of us enjoy talking about what interests us. Naturally, if your lessons are interesting to you, they will also be enjoyable. From my experience, using English to talk about what interests you and what you enjoy will enable you to meet and socialise with English speakers who share your interests. I have been in business for several years, and much of this time has been spent in managerial positions. Because of this, a have a good general knowledge of business, and I would be happy to include the world of business in our lessons. I look forward to working with you as you learn English.

Hello! my name is Jamie, i'm 29, I live in England and I'm a professional English teacher. I graduated from University with a bachelor of arts degree in English Language and Literature, giving me a firm grasp of the vocabulary and grammar skills which are necessary to have a varied knowledge of the English language. I then moved to Chiang Mai, Thailand, to obtain a TEFL certificate to teach English as a foreign language. Since passing this course I have worked at a number of advanced International language schools in Thailand, Vietnam and Colombia, teaching a range of age groups from kindergarten to adults. I have now accumulated five years of teaching experience, whilst in my spare time tutoring on an online teaching platform. I have tutored one on one, held classes with as little as 10 students to as many as 50 and taught kids as young as 4 to adults as old as 40. This has allowed me to adopt a range of teaching methods to tailor my lesson plans to a multitude of requirements. Using a presentation, practice and production system, I teach my students to take the initiative first from watching me, then practising what I have shown them and then producing it themselves unaided! Practically the system varies depending on the students level but can be applied in any lesson whether online or in the classroom. In my experience of teaching advanced pupils the system is highly effective when looking at sentence structure, speaking skills and grammar. However with beginners and young children the focus is phonics and basic language. I strive to incorporate technology frequently, using images (flashcards - drawings - posters), video and audio to set up each lesson in an inclusive and interactive way so students are engaged. I also present themes and topics 'weather', 'occupations', 'animals' to bring clarity to subject matters and to introduce more varied and challenging language in an appropriate easy to digest manner. Most of all no matter what your age group or skill set, my classes are supportive and most importantly fun!
A native British English speaker, I have been passionate about language learning since school. I studied Modern Languages at university in the UK, so understand the challenges of language learning from the student's perspective too. I did Cambridge CELTA teacher training at the end of 2016 (after years of informal teaching) and moved to Colombia to start a new chapter of life in January 2017. I taught at Universidad del Rosario, and also taught a wide variety of private classes with Colombian and international adults and children, in person and online. Now back in the UK, I teach learners of all ages, abilities, backgrounds and contexts. I love the variety of students and the breadth of teaching skills that entails. I have top qualifications and extensive experience, in general, business and academic English, as well as in Cambridge, IELTS and TOEFL international exams. Being a good teacher is all about working with the student to find the personalized way that works most effectively for them to grow in confidence and achieve their goals. It’s about connecting language learning with real life, making sense of English in a particular context and recognizing a student’s personal needs, challenges and learning style. I do currently have capacity for working with new students. If the schedule is not showing your preferred time, please do contact me and I will do my very best to find a space that suits you. Let's do this :-)
