Γεια σας. Hello!
I am Maria. I am a teacher of modern and ancient Greek with 20 years experience. I love teaching people from diverse cultural and educational backgrounds and I strongly believe in online language teaching as a very efficient method of learning. I hold a BSc in History and Archeology and a MA in teaching Modern Greek as a foreign language, both from the University of Athens. I have a strong experience as Exams Assessor on State Exams for the «Certificate of Attainment in Greek». I am currently teaching Modern Greek as a foreign language online at Avenues, The World School in New York, as well as to foreigners living in Athens, such as Embassies members and their families.

In my courses, I emphasize the importance of communication and the practical uses of language. I consider therefore communication as the most suitable approach, because it gives a lot of emphasis on realistic situations making the learner aware of how the language actually works (that does not mean that I don't give the same importance to the grammar rules and the syntax, especially to the advanced levels).

I have a deep appreciation of different learning styles and I am able to apply the corresponding teaching method to keep my students motivated and progressing at the right pace for them.
I use various teaching materials and I have also developed my own, based on my teaching experience in various settings and my academic background.

Hey! My name is Przemek and I'm an English linguistics graduate with a specialty in teaching and a holder of Delta, which is the highest and the most recognized diploma in the field of teaching English as a foreign language. I've been teaching for over 7 years, not only in Poland but also around the world. Teaching English gives me great satisfaction and motivates me to keep growing professionally. I'm also the founder and teacher at UP2 Academy - a modern online language school. I help people learning English by offering:

• individual classes – personalized lessons; help with current school or university material; topics tailored to the needs, e.g. business or legal English

• conversations – classes with an emphasis on speaking: improving pronunciation, learning fluency techniques; eliminating the most common lexical and grammatical errors; gaining self-confidence

• preparation for language exams – classes focused on exams, such as: Cambridge A2-C2, IELTS, TOEFL, TOEIC, BEC

• preparation for job interviews and self-presentations

Apart from that, my lessons are characterised by:

• Communicative approach: you learn through conversations, roleplays, discussions, without learning all the rules by heart.

• Immersion: all the classes and interaction are in English

• Practicality: the classes and the activities are set in a real-life context

• Customised approach: the way the classes are delivered is adjusted to the student’s level and interests

• All language skills development: apart from speaking, you will also practice listening, reading and writing, which are crucial elements of any language

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me.

Thanks!

I am Joanne Samaha and I live in Beirut, Lebanon. I hold a Master's Degree in English Literature and Language from the Lebanese University. I am currently planning and preparing for my next step which is a PhD in Literature. I have always been passionate about literature, reading, writing, and learning about different cultures and eras.

I am also an experienced school teacher and I have been teaching English as a foreign language for seven years at Collège des Soeurs des Saints-Coeurs Sioufi.

I strive to motivate learners while creating an amusing and friendly atmosphere. I am always interested in learning about their interests and backgrounds and listening to their thoughts and opinions in order to develop a good relationship with them. I also try to use different methods of teaching in order to reach all learners and meet their unique skills.

Joanne teaches English and Arabic since 8 years. She adaptes her lessons according students level (from beginner to advanced), skills, strengths, weaknesses and needs. She uses different tools as books, Youtube videos, musics or audio tracks with text to keep the student involved in the lesson. Moreover Joanne is a nice and smiling person, student will be comfortable and in confidence with her. I recommend her !

Hello, everyone,

I am Marcella, a native Italian who has moved to Switzerland to study.
I have a degree in Ancient Literature with a focus on archaeology, and in Italy I am qualified to teach literary classes.
I am doing a PhD in archaeology at the University of Bern, where I teach every two semesters.
I prefer to teach one-to-one or in pairs in order to make the most of my time and focus on people's needs. I prepare targeted courses, which is why I offer a trial lesson to establish the future course of the lessons.
Lessons are usually always mixed, conversation and grammar using audio, video and text material. Depending on the speed at which the student intends to progress, homework assignments are structured.
Try it for yourself! I look forward to seeing you online!

ENGLISH LANGUAGE.
I got certified with the University of Cambridge TKT test, developed empathy to students, polished my method, and the last 5 years I have been teaching english in an online environment.
After years teaching online, I can say that the computer screen is not a limitation. I love to see my students thrive in a new language, I develop my own exercises too, My classes are fun, dynamic and interesting to say the least, I believe I have the patience to create exercises and drills for my students and approach learning from a different perspective and overcome boredom, tiredness and lack of discipline.
I work with realia mostly, and I can tell you that nothing is more powerful than things and situations that are personal to a person.

I am a CELTA certified Teacher of English and I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism. I have a vast experience teaching General English, preparation for Cambridge exams-, pronunciation, speaking and developing writing skills. I have been teaching for over 18 years to students of different age ranges (young learners and adults at universities, middle and high school and academies.
What I love most about teaching is that I get to help students and make them see how beautiful this language is and how they can make it useful for their academic and professional lives. Another good point is that we can learn from each other and the opportunity to plan every class in a different way.
I think I can tailor your lessons according to your needs so, do not hesitate and contact me.
See you soon,
Armando

Hi! My name is Andrea and I am Italian. During the last years I have been living in Spain too, which is for me my second homecountry.
I have been studying languages at university and since I love teaching the languages I speak, I offer you a great language course of Spanish or Italian.

I can assure you great results since I use methods that work with everyone and make you realize how quick can you be when you want to learn a new language, at any level!

Also, since I have been studying many languages, it helps me to understand how to teach correctly a language to a person who doesn't have it as native language.
For me, languages are much more than just a way to communicate with someone else. Also, I think that my passion in this field helps me to transmit to the students the desire to keep studying and learning amazing languages like these.

Contact me and let's have a trial lesson! It's free! :)

(I ONLY OFFER GROUP CLASSES ON HERE :) )

Hello, my name is Rebecca Rygaard.
Recently graduated as a teacher of Danish and English for the primary and lower secondary schools in Denmark, according to the Bachelor's Degree Program in Education, from University College Copenhagen.

I am born and raised in Denmark, and am a native speaker of Danish.

In my teaching I use a communicative approach, focused on having us communicate with each other and produce language to learn it. We will learn both from "input" (what we hear, read) and "output" (what we say, write).

This communicative approach will be focused on "real life" and authentic situations - that means that I'll actually base the teaching on my students lives. I.e. we could be talking about what has brought you to want to learn Danish. There will be authentic language only in this class - not language about hypothetical situations, that you might not ever need.

As part of this method, we'll be using task-based learning - you'll often learn the language through "tasks" in my class, with the point that you'll have to use communication, in cooperation with your peers (or me) to solve them. It's a lot of fun, I guarantee.

You will also be learning about the Danish culture, as I believe culture and language go together, and one cannot be understood without the other (I very much look forward to introducing you to Danish customs, traditions and food).

I'll be focused on your progress, rather your 'errors', as I don't believe in teaching a language by focusing on student's "mistakes", but on their potential. There is an "interlanguage" that is the language that emerge in between your original language, and the language you're trying to learn. And it is only normal that this language is a bit of a mix, that is ever-evolving.

With me, you'll also have the important advantage that I am both a teacher of English and Danish, and therefore know how the languages correlate.

I've learned about all of these aspects "the communicative approach", "task-based learning", "cultural studies" and "interlanguage" and a "functional view on language learning", as a part of my education, and I know they are all a part of recent research in the field.

I have prepared a lesson plan for beginners - which can both be used for group- and single lessons. But I can also create a specifically crafted lesson plan just for you and your needs/level, or if you already know Danish, but just want to improve it.

I hope we meet, and look forward to helping you learn some Danish :)

Rebecca

I've been studying with Montse for about 6-7 weeks now. So far I have found her to be a fantastic teacher. She is very professional, fun and engaging. There is a very clear structure and method to her teaching, which I think is important! Never a dull lesson either. I would have no hesitation recommending her to anyone looking for a very competent teacher. I was previously learning Spanish with a teacher on Live Lengua and have found Monste to be a giant leap in terms of the quality.

Hi!
My name is Kirstine. I'm an experienced English and Danish teacher. I teach at a primary and lower secondary school. (Students aged 6-16). But I'm also very interested in teaching both younger and older/adult students.
I'm an international coordinator at my school, and very used to working with students and teachers from all around the world.
I'm used to online teaching.
I love having contact with people from all around the world. I used to travel a lot, but now I love to meet people from other countries either at my AirBnB or through online sessions.
I love to hear from you and teach you either Danish or English.
I have an informal way of teaching, and will work together with you to make the sessions how you prefer them.
We can use a textbook if you prefer, but I also like to read the news, small books, look at online videos and more, and to discuss and learn from that.

In recent years I have worked as an Academic Director at a Language School in northern Spain. My job duties there included designing intensive Spanish & English courses for beginners’, intermediate and advanced levels, as well as teaching both on-site and via Skype. This constant interest has allowed me to become familiar with techniques and tools that are essential in today´s second language learning, such as the materials used by the Cervantes Institute and the most renowned publications and blogs in the field of language teaching. Most particularly, I have made extensive use of audiovisuals and creative writing activities in order to develop consistent, effective courses. 


As an on-line teacher, I have steadily used different technology applications in language learning. My tasks as a teacher included setting homework and giving feedback to my students, according to their needs, on a regular basis, as well as keeping accurate register of their attendance and progress. 


Graduated in Hispanic Philology and Masters in Applied French, I have always kept up with my teaching training and have recently completed a Cambridge CELTA course for English teachers This further training has provided me with the familiarity to different teaching methodologies, which have proven to be extremely useful in my classes. 

My hobbies: art cinema, hiking, reading and watching and playing basketball.

I wanted to refresh and improve my Spanish and I contacted Inigo because he 's certified in luinguistic. Inigo is very patient, professional and helpful. He provides well structured lessons, in a very friendly and good atmosphere which is really favorable for learning a foreign language. The lesson material is built around several support such as text, audio, video, etc. You can't be bored and it's nice to switch between the different materials along the hour. He's also fluent in French and English so he can switch from a language to another for any explanation if needed. I really enjoy my lessons with him and I definitely recommand him!

Hello =)
My name is Karolin and I have been living in Chile for more than 2 years now. I've been teaching via Skype for quite some time and I've found that this kind of work is fun. That's why I would like to expand my circle of students.
Both in English and in German, I teach classes for beginners and advanced students. I speak Spanish fluently, but I do not want to cheat anyone, so I note here that I speak the spanish from Chile. I learned and teach the spanish from Spain and I can explain the differences if you're interested, but that is why I only teach spanish for beginners.
If you'd like to get to know me and my teaching methods, just contact me and we will do a free trial lesson.
See you soon!
