Introduction

SpeaksEnglish

I'm a native English speaking international English teacher with over 4 years of teaching experience. I'm very social, which is how I relate to my students. While in university, I enjoyed teaching children for my early childhood education major. I also taught in children in a private US school. Last year I privately tutored business English to refugees in Sweden, and currently I'm teaching local children and adults basic English in Morocco. I enjoy writing short stories, and I hope to be a published author soon. My approach to English tutoring includes: ✓ Building your vocabulary base ✓ Attention to grammar ✓ American English pronunciation I teach all ages and ability levels. My past and current students have been between the ages of 2 and 72 years of age. Most of my students find me relatable, patient and upbeat. Every student learning English as a second or third language are my heros. You are brave and I admire your determination to be successful in English fluency. My desire is to support you or your child in reaching your language goals! Every lesson will include: ✓ grammar correction ✓ new vocabulary with definitions and examples ✓ common phrases explanation ✓ links to classroom material ✓ personalized pronunciation guide for you to study ✓ freestyle conversing TRIAL LESSON A trial lesson is a time for me to ascertain your current linguistic level and objectives, and explain to you the best teaching method to employ for optimum results. CONVERSATIONAL, BASIC and ADVANCED ENGLISH I can help you to improve all aspects of conversational and written English by: ✓building your vocabulary base ✓altering your pronunciation ✓teaching you speech rhythm and breathing techniques ✓familiarizing you with common phrases so you'll never be left out of a conversation! ✓correcting grammar as needed ✓modify accent with phonetic structure techniques TRAVEL ENGLISH Traveling has enough anxiety of it's own, without the added pressure of not being able to access necessary items/services, and fully enjoy all that an English speaking country has to offer because you: A) don't know what to ask for B) you do know what to say, but no one is able to understand you B) you feel intimidated C) you haven't been told how to be polite As an international traveler myself, I know the feeling! My travel course will: • modify accent and correct pronunciation • teach relevant vocabulary/phrases • familiarize you with necessary queries to ask to obtain services, see travel sights, or just get to know the locals • learn the customs and mannerisms BUSINESS ENGLISH My method for teaching business English includes: ✓ altering pronunciation ✓ correcting grammar ✓ building relevant business vocabulary/jargon ✓ establishing a knowledge of business phrases, so as to never be uninformed during meetings ✓ teaching speech rhythm and breathing techniques ✓ interview preparation (writing an interview script) ✓ resume/CV modification ✓ cover letter development EXAM PREPARATION I'm extremely experienced with exam preparation, and I will employ a variety of teaching methods to insure that you are not only thoroughly prepared for your upcoming exams, but give you an edge for the most optimum results. CHILDREN and TEENS I teach young children's beginning English through the utilization of many methods in order to maintain your young student's attention and interest while learning. With my teaching method, style and expertise, your teen will be more than prepared for high school and college. My objective is to not just help your student excel in their present classes, but also to equip them with the necessary skills for a successful, long-term academic career.
