About my service
Preschool (3-5 yrs.) to Adult ENGLISH LESSONS: Creative and unique, practical conversational English and grammar presented in a fun way by a teacher who is English mother tongue..
For these lessons and for homework coaching, I am drawing on experience gained through my ongoing work through years of traveling, of tutoring French-speaking students English, and English- speaking students French. I have divided my time between Vermont, USA and Geneva for several years. I have combined the work with the kids at times with Art projects to make it more engaging. English lessons can be given to speakers of other languages as well, using similar methods.
Ages 3-8: Dialogues, songs with illustrated posters, skits, repetition of simple conversations, circle games .
8-12 : same as above with addition of beginning grammar with workbook, crossword puzzles, homework assistance, CD rom lessons. Vocabulary.
12 and up: More advanced conversations useful when traveling,more reading out loud, “dictées” for vocabulary, current magazines and newspapers, speaking about photos from English-speaking countries, songs. CD rom lessons. Workbook for matching, repetition, games.
