Private lesson focused on accent reduction in order to improve economic and social opportunities with native English speakers. Together we will go over the English sounds which do not exist in your language. Then we will use a text which we will read together in order to raise awareness of pronunciation problems and fix them on the spot. During the reading you will also learn about the ways in which native speakers speak English quickly.
By learning how to pronounce well, you will also improve your listening. Why? If you know how to speak like a native English speaker, you will better know what they are saying.
Learning the strange grammar of English can be frustrating and boring. Instead of doing boring exercises and ineffectively learning rules, practice grammar naturally.
In storyasking I will ask you questions based on a simple story. You will answer in English. These lessons are designed for you to master the grammatical structure of English in the present and past tenses, as well as train new vocabulary. The best word to describe these lessons is repetition.
If you are planning to study in a university abroad, or take one of the many English proficiency tests, you will have to know how to write. In this writing intensive class, you will write a long paragraph/short essay for me in 15-30 minutes. Afterwards, we go over what you wrote well, and what you wrote not so well.
You see your own mistakes in front of your own eyes. It is a great way realize what errors you make when you speak as well. I love seeing my student's writing as it gives me the opportunity to teach the grammar they need to know.
This hybrid class mixes together a little bit of all 3 of the above classes (accent reduction, storyasking, and writing). Normally the first 10-15 minutes is spent on conversation, afterwards we move onto writing for another 15-20 minutes, and lastly accent reduction to finish the class.
For pre-intermediate students, I usually add storyasking so that you can reinforce the basic grammar.
Why so expensive? It's quite easy to find conversation partners online these days. As well, language teachers are best used for more effective learning classes like those above. I would rather avoid classes like this for both my sake and yours.
However, if you really want to talk to me and show off your English, you are more than welcome to.
You really only get one chance in an interview to make a good first impression. If you don't have a good enough level of English, you won't do good in an interview. This is where this private class comes in.
You give me all the details of the job you are applying for, and who will be interviewing you. From there, we go over the potential questions you may receive and the best responses.
You should only need one of these classes.
Personalized lessons take a long time to make. For that reason, the inflated price. You are probably better off choosing one of the more economical classes above.
However, if you are having problems with something very specific, and you want me to make a class about it for you, this is your option.
