Private English tutor in Dubai

Teacher joined in Jul, 2019

(AVAILABLE FOR ONLINE LESSONS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE) Inter-active Online Lessons are a specialty as well as Business English. I have taught for over 30 years in schools and colleges, teaching students of all ages including adults and degree students. Having been a Vice Principal for 10 years I decided to leave schools to allow myself flexibility. I started a small educational business and want to also enjoy teaching - on a one-to-one basis. My subjects were Tourism and Business - so anyone wanting to learn Business English would have some advantage in using business terms I am a friendly person who is emotionally intelligent and indeed have been trained at Yale University in Emotional Intelligence coaching. More recently I have started to use online platforms to deliver sessions that are highly compatible with any face-to-face lesson. My sessions are developed with the individual in mind and are fun and interactive. As an added bonus, I offer occasional fun sessions with other students (free of charge) to supplement learning.

I was taught English at a young age, which I used primarily for conversation, yes more than Arabic haha. My parents are Iraqi originally but my father lived in the UK. English is very easy to learn and read if you can tolerate that there are a lot of words that are pronounced differently than they are written.

TUTOROO has been designed to provide a frictionless experience while connecting tutors to students, for private in-person language lessons.

Why Learning English With A Private English Tutor?

TUTOROO works with a community of over 4,500 private English teachers in more than 150 cities. Our English tutors help their students improve their English skills by providing them with personalised online and in-person lessons. The internet is full of helpful resources for non-native English speakers to learn English, with materials for all levels in order to improve one's vocabulary or English grammar. So why would you need to hire a private English teacher to learnEnglish?

First, private English tutors are able to meet specific English learning needs that static online resources may not always provide. With one-on-one English lessons , you can easily progress towards English language fluency. Students can choose to focus their lessons on grammar exercises, vocabulary, pronunciation, writing, reading comprehension, speaking practice, and more.

Below are some of the benefits of learning English with an English teacher with TUTOROO:

1. Best English Tutors for Kids, Teens and Adults

One-on-one English tuition with a private English teacher allows you to have the undivided attention you deserve. Private English classes are customised to your learning goals and your rhythm. Perhaps you are interested specifically in business English, conversational English, or private lessons for your kids - an English tutor can customise your English lessons to meet your needs and help you improve your skills thanks to real-world lessons from a native speaker.

When you learn English with a TUTOROO tutor, you get direct answers to all of your questions, this helps you improve your language skills faster in areas you struggle with, from pronunciation and vocabulary to other grammar issues. A private English teacher can immediately identify your mistakes and correct your inaccuracies. You get to ask direct questions when things aren't clear and obtain immediate answers from them.

For example, for non-native English speakers, the English language can sometimes be contradictory. For example, the 'ch' in 'chair' is pronounced differently from the 'ch' in 'chiffon'. The 'th' in 'thumb' is pronounced differently from the 'th' in 'that'. A private English teacher can help you avoid these common pitfalls to achieve English language success and gain strong English communication skills.

In a nutshell, learning English with a TUTOROO tutor is much more fun and interesting than just watching online videos or learning online through tutorials. You may now improve your English skills with our online and in-person private tutors. We actually help students from around the world improve their English skills.

Get started today and start improving your English language skills with a private English teacher now!

2. Learning English From Scratch

Everyone learns a new language at a different pace and some even start learning from scratch and have no previous knowledge of the new language they wish to learn. One may be great at English grammar but be struggling over pronunciation, or at the contrary excel in conversational English but struggle with reading and writing. In a group class, the tutor will move on if the majority of the class understands. With one-on-one private English courses, your English teacher works at the pace you are comfortable with, and can also adapt their teaching methods for you.

3. Working Around Your Schedule

Unusual scheduling needs? Preparing for an English proficiency test? Need intensive English classes? No problem, you can work with your TUTOROO English teacher to find a timing and frequency that suits you for your English tuition. With a private tutor, you can take classes according to your schedule. Improve your English skills by learning from native speakers. This way, you're 100% flexible.

When you learn English with a teacher, you get flexibility, customised lessons and you get to meet a bright and interesting person: your new private tutor!

Why Learning English?

English is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world, it is also used as a second language by millions of people around the globe. English has been used as an international language since the 17th century.

The English Language is recognised as the official language in about 67 different countries. Additionally, more than 27 non-sovereign entities regularly use English as an administrative or conversational language. It is the official language of many world institutions like NATO, the European Union and the United Nations. Close to a third of the world's population (some 2 billion people) now use English, giving it the position of a global lingua franca.

With TUTOROO you may now learn English with a private English teacher in the following locations:

Is English a Difficult Language to Learn?

The English Language is regarded as one of the most difficult languages to learn for non-native English speakers. Its grammatical rules are often broken, spelling and pronunciation irregularities can even confuse native speakers. With the help of a private English teacher, you can overcome the difficulties of the English language and achieve full English language fluency. Improve your English skills now with an English tutor.

What are the Most Popular English Tests?

As a non-native English speaker, many higher education schools or universities where English is the standard language of teaching will require you to take an English proficiency test. This test is proof of your English language ability and ensures you have the necessary oral, aural and writing skills to complete your course. Don't let a language barrier stop you from achieving your dreams. Hire a private English language teacher to help you prepare for your English proficiency test.

The two most common tests are the TOEFL or IELTS:

TOEFL (The Test of English as a Foreign Language) is the most common English proficiency test. There are two formats for writing TOEFL and you can choose your preferred format: an internet-based test or a paper-delivered test. The sections in the test include listening comprehension, written expression, reading comprehension and speaking. The test takes about 3 hours to complete and the result is valid for two years. Most universities require that you score between 90 to 100 (B2). However, some universities may require that you attain a minimum score in each section while meeting the B2 proficiency requirement.

IELTS (The International English Language Testing System) is another widely recognised English proficiency test. The test has two versions which are the academic version and the general training version. Most employers and universities worldwide accept the academic version, while the general training version is accepted by government institutions and used for immigration.

The first 3 sections of the IELTS - listening, reading and writing - lasts 2 hours 40 mins. The last component is a speaking test done in the presence of an examiner. IELTS scores range between 1 and 9 with universities requiring a minimum of 6 or 7. The minimum score is equivalent to C1 and B2 proficiency levels. You can get your IELTS results 13 days after the test and the result is valid for two years.

Although not as common as IELTS or TOEFL, CAE (Cambridge Certificate of Advanced English) and CPE (Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English) are often an admission requirement for UK universities. Usually, only people at an advanced English level can take CAE and CPE. They are in-depth, high-level qualifications that demonstrate an English proficiency level of C1 - 7 to 8 in IELTS or 110 to 120 in TOEFL. You can take CAE and CPE either on your computer or in person. Like the other tests, the CAE and CPE tests reading, writing, listening and speaking. The speaking section of the test will be done with another candidate to test fluency in face-to-face situations. Unlike TOEFL and IELTS, CAE and CPE certificates don't expire. The highest grade is an A and the lowest score in CAE and CPE is C, with most universities requiring a minimum of B for admission.

Can My English Tutor Prepare Me For English Proficiency Tests?

TUTOROO works with many English tutors who are available and specialised in training for some of these tests. By browsing our English private tutor profiles, you will be able to find tutors who specialise in test preparation for English proficiency tests. You are also able to contact the tutor directly with any queries and choose the private English tutor that best fits your needs.

TUTOROO only hires tutors that get the work done. By this, we mean that learners and students pass their English proficiency test after being coached by a TUTOROO private tutor.

How Soon Can I Become Fluent In English?

This must be our most popular question! With the help of a teacher and with private English lessons, learning English is much easier, quicker and more enjoyable. Of course, being motivated and focused comes in handy when learning a new language. With both online or face-to-face lessons and if you have the motivation to study a couple of hours every day, a private English teacher will help you become fluent in English in as little as 6 months!

Be patient, fluency in English is not something anyone acquires overnight. The process takes time and requires enthusiasm, that's why hiring a private tutor that can customise your English lessons to your interests and needs is important. Furthermore, face-to-face and online English lessons give you an opportunity to converse and practise your newly acquired English language skills.

Being motivated and focused comes in handy when you're learning a new language. If you have enough time to study English with a private tutor, you can become fluent in just around six months as long as you study it a couple hours a day.

In addition to studying with a TUTOROO tutor, you may want to try to get fully immersed as well once you start speaking English fluently. Being around native English speakers allows you to practise language skills you've learnt. You can also read English books, watch English speaking movies and listen to the news in English.

How Many People in the World Speak English?
