I am a BA in Education graduate, with vast experience in primary, secondary and higher education levels, as well as in other activities related to education. I believe I have a diverse background which makes me a very adaptable teacher and with a lot to offer.
Most of my experience is in high school ,in adult education and university students. I have been able to develop a good relationship with my students, which has translated to better communication and an altogether more rounded experience for them and myself. My lesson planning has always aimed to reflect my students’ needs and interest applied into useful communicative language structures that they can actually use in their lives.
In my last years as a teacher, I have focused on preparing test-takers for the TOEFL. It has been a completely different experience from what I have had before, but I have helped my students accomplish the desired scores in the proposed time.
I believe in making the learning of a new language something exciting and not frightening at all, but challenging and gratifying instead. My material is dynamic and keeps my students engaged and continuesly developing their communiation skills.
I am flexible with my students' time and shcedule; naturally, it is open for deliberation if needed. I look forward to helping you get to the desired goals you set foryourself!

I am Michelle Reece-Herbert from the Island of Barbados. My profession as an Educator is of importance to me as I always try to facilitate the learning needs of students. It is in this context, that I have studied and obtained my degrees/certificates in Spanish with Management BA, CELTA, Classroom Management, Technology & Learning Design MA.
Over the years, I have taught on various ESL/TESOL programmes (blended), and the students range from teens - adults (A1 - C2) from regional and International countries. Additionally, I taught at a few Universities in Colombia, South America as a Language Instructor.

As a Language Educator, I consider myself to possess many traits relevant to such a profession. Among them:- a good listener, having patience when dealing with challenges within the teaching & learning environment, dedicated and an engaging personality.

My approach to the teaching and learning environment is based on the Communicative & Integrative methods. In this regard, students are encourage to utilize their prior/background knowledge and experiences to support new knowledge being received. Therefore, my sessions are tailor-made for the student's needs via the use of authentic & creative materials (eg. photographs, news clips, songs, videos, role-plays, discussions, interactive activities etc.) to reflect real life contexts.

Exploiting opportunities and finding solutions is my biggest motivation. For me, it is central to being able to mean something to fellow human beings. I am decisive, decisive and persuasive. I am also consultative, empathetic and fair. Integrity is very important to me. As a connector, I am focused on achieving cohesion and enthusiasm within the lessons and I ensure a good atmosphere. I will motivate others to listen to each other, to use each other's qualities and to compliment each other. I ensure involvement and loyalty in the lessons. I have extensive experience in teaching. Since February 2018 I have been appointed as a language teacher at the Language Center at the University of Groningen and I am also a certified teacher NT2. I am also certified as an English teacher. For NT students I use Taalcomplete and for highly educated students Dutch in gait/Dutch in action/the jump and the final. For Arabic interested I use Alif baa and Alkitaab. In the first lesson you will receive more information about the procedure. After all, language is the connection between us all.

Good day there...

My name is Teresa (Teacher Tess), and I live in South Africa

I manage an afterschool care centre called “The Lighthouse”
I care for 3 – 6 year old's in the afternoons
Having taught children of various ages over the years before this, I have decided that this is my favourite age group. They are so loving and not afraid to show how they feel.
I love having fun playing games with them, doing crafts and telling stories.
I have built meaningful relationships with many of them. I look forward to seeing them each day as they run up to say hello and give me a big hug.
I also love to see their smiling faces at the end of the day when they go home because then I know I’ve done a good job in keeping them happy.

I have spent most of my career studying education and tutoring children.
I volunteered in High school with SMILE Education to teach English to African pupils.
I worked for a number of years tutoring maths for KUMON Education. I tutored maths privately.
I worked for a time teaching high school maths.
So I have worked with many many children over the years.

My qualifications specific to the requirements of this position would be my National Certificate in Early Childhood Development as well as my Certificate in the Principles of Developmental Psychology, both of which I obtained through INTEC College.
I have also recently completed a 168 hour TEFL qualification.

My style of teaching is one where I try to keep the students motivated, to be sensitive to their needs and most importantly to observe and listen to them carefully to make sure they understand.

Methods i use include:
TPR (Total Physical Response) - this is using a lot of body language and gestures to emphasize meaning.
Colourful Props - to keep the child's attention.
Reward systems - to motivate participation.
Games and songs - to make the lesson fun

I absolutely love what I do and would love to meet you and embark on this exciting journey through the English language with your treasured child.

Hi! I've been teaching English in Spain for the last 3 years and have lots of experience with Cambridge official exams (Pre A1- C1), conversation classes, help with General English and CLIL.

My teaching style is student-centered and tailored to your needs and goals. There's always plenty of talking time to practice any new grammar and vocabulary to focus on fluency and accuracy, as well as building confidence to naturally practice your new skills in conversation. The courses I create always revise previous learning points and integrate them with new material so that you don't just learn something once and never see it again.

I teach with a range of realia, textbook resources and online materials that have proven effective and engaging with my students in the past, but everything I use is adapted specifically for your areas of weakness and learning styles!

I find that Beth was so easy to talk. I m always nervous when I speak English but talking to Beth I am not nervous because she has this power to let me just speak. She won’t rush to finish even the time is almost up. Is good. Hoping to take her class more and more. Her accent is easy to hear too!

Hello, my name is Corinne and I am a qualified ESL English teacher from England. I have been teaching in classrooms and online for over 3 years and I have many satisfied students.

My lessons are student-centred and usually take place on Skype. I treat every student as an individual and tailor my lessons to meet their goals. I use a variety of text books and free online resources including exercises, articles and videos. I usually give out a little homework at the end of each lesson to reinforce what we have done together.

In your first lesson, we will discuss your needs and check your current level. From this, we can decide what sort of lessons will suit you the best. Perhaps you struggle with grammar and sentence structure? Perhaps you need to practice English for a specific purpose, like understanding lectures, making phone calls at work, or travelling? Or perhaps you need a structured course so that you can learn English step by step?

Whatever you need, I’m here to help. I see it as my job to make you feel safe, build your confidence and make your lessons enjoyable. I look forward to hearing from you and to helping you on your path to speaking better English. Book your first lesson now and let’s get started.

Hello everybody!

My name is Elena! I have been teaching French to kids, teens, adults for 12 years.

I began my career in 2008 working in an AUF member university and I’ve spend 6 years teaching general and professional French language skills to students and preparing them for TEF, TCF, DELF/DALF examinations. Later I’ve worked in several language schools. Now I work in Alliance Française and as a private tutor. I also work as a French - Russian interpreter. I also teach Russian to english speaking and french speaking people.

In 2017 I started teaching online and I know how to make learning fun, creative end efficient to people of all ages and needs. In my opinion, any study should be a pleasure, so I do my best to make my students enjoy the lessons and progress in speaking, reading, writing, listening and grammar at the same time.

Contact me to book a trial lesson and for any question you may have!

My way of teaching is based on my over 30 years of experience. After spending many years providing my students with a lot of grammar rules I decided to start providing them with the necessary tools that support them in breaking down both linguistic and psychological barriers, improving their confidence, building the correct communication code of the language thus lowering frustration and increasing motivation.

My students are happy with such method as they enjoy each and every lesson and never feel under pressure.

I want English to be learnt naturally with the right commitment but with no frustration.

I love my job and I am totally committed to what I do, while continuously working on new material and on finding the best way to keep my students engaged.
