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 have attended various workshops and seminars that have helped me improve my teaching, communication, digital, classroom management, organization and team-work skills.

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 !

I'm an experienced language teacher with 5 years of experience teaching Catalan, Spanish and English to all levels and ages (children and adults) and German to beginners. I've worked as a private teacher and as a teacher in a school, so I can handle students one to one as well as groups. Due to the Covid-19 crisis, I also have experience in online teaching.
I've got a degree in Catalan and English philology, a post-degree in teaching Catalan and the official master for teaching in secondary and Language Schools (English speciality).
In my classes I always take into account my students' needs. I focus on communication, without forgetting that we need to learn the grammar in order to speak/write correctly.
I use different materials depending on the level, the language and the students, but they are always of diverse nature and they include videos. I usually include material created by me.
I love learning languages myself, so I always try to think how I like the classes in order to make my own teaching more appealing to my students, so you can trust that, if you take classes with me, you will have an experiences teacher as well as an experienced language learner.

Hi,

I'm Poppy, 21, from England and I'm currently studying English, French and Spanish at Uni in Strasbourg, France.
I studied up until the age of 18 in Britain and am now living a bilingual life here in France, so I know the obstacles when it comes to learning a foreign language.

I have a qualification in teaching English (TEFL) and have been teaching for the past 6 months on another English-learning website called Cambly where i have met people from all over the world, some total beginners in English and others close to fluency.

I like students to be at ease during classes and the best way to do that, in my opinion, is to build a friendship and speak about the topics which interest them most, but of course in English! I am very flexible and sometimes read news articles with students which lead to discussions or Youtube videos from their favourite youtuber. The most important thing is to inspire the student to start speaking- once he/she does, we can start correcting their mistakes.

I also like to show students why being bilingual is such an amazing skill to have and how it can change your life prospects.

Poppy :)

Hello, students of English! I'm an American who teaches English classes at a French university. I have a life-long passion for foreign languages. Apart from French, I also speak fluent Spanish and have an intermediate level in Portuguese.

Teaching my native language is not only a language exchange, but a cultural exchange allowing me to connect with people from many diverse backgrounds.

All levels are welcome, and we can work with whatever you want (conversation classes, writing, etc.) The first lesson is always free, and allows me to do a level test.

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.

Dear future student,

My name is Mélanie, I am 40 years old, I am Belgian and I live near Brussels in Belgium.

I have 7 years of experience in teaching French as a foreign language. I have a degree in Modern Languages and Literature. I have an agrégation in higher secondary education. French is my mother tongue. Additionally I have a C2 level in Spanish.

I have taught adults (beginner - advanced) in various training institutions (CLL, CVO Semper, ...). I have taught both large and small groups. I can therefore adapt my teaching methods according to the number of people.

As far as my teaching methods are concerned, I create communicative exercises.
I always try to get the student to express themselves as much as possible. In case of groups, I create individual exercises, in groups of two or four.
I give homework in which the students have to write a short text related to a grammatical concept they have seen. I also give additional grammatical exercises.
I also test my students' knowledge. For example, during the course, I listen to my students and comment on their oral productions. I also do small listening comprehensions and reading comprehensions.
I can also explain certain grammatical points or translate certain words into the student's language if it is needed, but generally I always try to teach in the target language.

If my student is looking for a job, I can also help him/her to write his/her CV and cover letter and also prepare his/her interview.
If my student works in a company, I can also prepare exercises specific to the company's field. I have given courses to warehouse workers for Delhaize, to plumbers, to students in Tourism.
I also taught asylum seekers.

As far as teaching material is concerned, I use a lot of material from Zexperts fle https://leszexpertsfle.com/toutes-les-ressources-fle/ which I adapt to the objectives of the lesson. I also look for exercises in FLE manuals such as Totem, Edito, Alter Ego, Expression orale... Naturally, I adapt the exercises according to the needs of the student. I also look for songs in YouTube.

Bonjour,

My name is Hermione.

I have been working in English Language Teaching (ELT) since 2012. I have taught General English, Business English and Exam Preparation courses to learners of all ages and levels.

I have worked as an English teacher in England, France and Greece and as a corporate trainer on Amazon, France.

I have more than 6 years of experience in Education management. I have a BA in Balkan Studies and an MBA.

My native language is Greek and I can also speak German and Romanian. I am currently working on improving my French.

As a teacher, I believe every student deserves the opportunity to learn at their own individual pace, let curiosity direct their learning, and participate in hands-on activities that encourage growth.

My lessons are fun, creative, challenging and rewarding. I really like to tailor my lessons to suit your needs, motivation and interests.

Always remember that to learn a language is to have one more window to look at the world.

Hope to see you soon in my class!

I offer smart and fun lessons for all levels and ages! I am a native Turkish speaker from Cyprus and an English teacher by profession. Alongside full-time teaching, I work as a freelance translator/interpreter (Turkish-English) on a part-time basis. I have extensive teaching experience especially with university students, secondary school students and adults. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced learner, I can help you (or your child) improve your language skills with customized lessons and authentic teaching material.

As a language teacher and a language learner myself, I am aware that everyone learns at their own pace and everyone learns in different ways. Therefore, addressing the needs of each student individually is crucial to my teaching approach. It is true that language learning takes time and commitment but online teaching has transformed the learning experience in such a way that, with the help of developing technology and the internet, you can accelerate your learning much faster than you can with traditional teaching methods. Some of the key elements in accelerated learning that I adapt in my teaching methodology are as follows:

Flipped Classroom:
In contrast to conventional teaching methods, students are provided with class material prior to the lesson. This allows them to practice what they have learnt during classroom discussions and activities.

Task-based Approach:
Traditional teaching approaches focused on the content that teachers thought their students needed to learn. This included a lot of emphasis on grammar. Task-based approach, on the other hand, focuses on the skills that the students want to acquire. The teacher no longer focuses on ‘what’ is taught but ‘why’ it is taught.

Lexical Syllabus:
In line with the task-based approach, lexical syllabus focuses on the vocabulary that the student needs to learn in order to perform a specific task. For example, the word ‘asset’ is essential for a business student, similarly, ‘biopsy’ is an essential word for a medical student.

My approach allows me to connect with students' previous learning experiences and knowledge and increase their reflection between what they learn and their life experiences. Overall, it is a student-centered, interactive, collaborative and communicative approach.

I help you SPEAK Spanish. Are you learning a language just to accumulate random knowledge or to communicate, experience the culture and the people, and travel? I am pretty sure the latter is true, right?

In our lessons, you will communicate, eliminate mental blocks, and learn vocabulary and grammar that you will actually use. After each class, you will be able to apply in your conversations what you have just learned.

My lessons are fully personalized to your goals, needs, and interests. Every student is different and so are their goals, interests, and way of learning. In order to make the most of the sessions and help you to develop fluent Spanish skills, I customize my lessons and materials to every one of my students.

I am a grammar freak and that would make me a terribly boring teacher if I didn't also loooove to chat about everything possible. So I find it quite easy to find a good balance between theory and praxis.

I love people, that is why I am a teacher: I will love to know more about you, about your interests and your culture, as well as sharing mine with you.

I am also known among my students to make the best recommendations about series, films, books, and events to keep improving your Spanish in a fun and relaxed way.

A little more serious info: I am an Online Spanish Teacher with more than 10 years of experience teaching privately, in High Schools, Language Schools, and online. I am also a certified DELE Examiner.

I am a language learner too: I speak German, English, a little bit of French and I am currently learning Japanese. Thanks to this experience, I understand perfectly the difficulties and needs of my students and I adapt to them so that you can make the most of each lesson.

And the important stuff: I live in Austria, have two dogs and a toddler; I love reading, traveling and cooking; I am a Hufflepuff; I try to keep my beautiful plants alive; I collect stationery stuff; I love learning new things and when I start a series I love, I have a huge urge to finish it as quickly as possible.
