Improve your English with a native teacher

Teacher joined in Jul, 2022

ONLINE LESSONS ONLY Hi! My name’s Aimee and I’m a highly qualified EDB NET scheme teacher, and I have recently finished teaching P1-6 students at a primary school on Hong Kong Island. As someone who graduated in London with a First-Class Honours degree in Creative Writing, I have a passionate interest in literature and the English language and delight in teaching it. As well as my BA, I also obtained an MA in the same subject. In addition, I have a Cambridge English teaching certificate, as well as over 10 years of experience teaching both in the U.K and Hong Kong. As a result, I have experience with both the local and the British curricula and have taught both international and local students. My work as a primary school teacher involved implementing the EDB curriculum to a diverse range of abilities through the teaching of phonics, oral lessons, shared reading and guided reading. I teach specific reading techniques to enhance students’ confidence and enjoyment and arm my students with the skills they need to become independent learners. I encourage students not only to speak, read and write English but to really take pleasure in doing so. After many happy years teaching in Hong Kong, I am have now relocated to the U.K, where I will conduct my lessons online. I am experienced in teaching P1-S4, and as well as tailor-made lessons I can offer the following: Phonics Oral lessons Guided Reading British curriculum Hong Kong PLPR-W and curriculum Lessons will operate as extra support for school lessons, or stand-alone lessons. I hope you can join me for the adventure!

Oxford Grad Helps You to Think Outside the Box

English course in Hong Kong near you

Teacher joined in Nov, 2018

ONLINE CLASSES ONLY If I asked you "Would you like to live in a box?" you would most certainly respond, "no!" But why is it that so many students think inside the box and rely on spoon feeding? After all, there is no such place as Boxford University. Hi! I'm Johann, an Oxford graduate, and polyglot language enthusiast. I first taught through the British Council language assistant program when I worked in a French secondary school (Lycee de Charles de Gaulle). After graduating from Oxford University, I taught as a freelance English teacher working for three companies in Bologna and Florence. Later, I taught an 8-year old Russian boy English, mathematics, and science to prepare him for his Keystage 2 tests. I have over 2 years of experience teaching English in South Korea and around 6 years in Hong Kong. At secondary school I studied Latin, French, German, and Spanish. I also studied Italian and Russian at the language center in Oxford whilst I was studying French and German (Modern Languages). During my BA/MA studies at Christ Church College, Oxford, I focused mainly on analysing literature (60%) and on translation and essay writing. In addition to teaching, I have over six years of experience working as a freelance translator for companies like Amazon Srl. I would therefore be more than happy to teach you how to translate texts or how to analyse literary texts. In Hong Kong, I have helped prepare several students for school entry exams and interviews, ranging from kindergarten at GSIS to 14/15 year olds at CIS and ESF. Besides school students, I have assisted IELTS students with their exam preparation. If it's English, I can teach it. Ask, if you have any questions.

Serious English tutoring— the fun way!

Improve your English with a native tutor

Teacher joined in Feb, 2019

Hello, learners! I am a Canadian native English speaker, able to help you in all aspects of learning and perfecting English. Some of the world’s English-speaking regions’ language is quite slangy and dialectal. In contrast, the Central Canadian English I teach is very neutral and easily understood by all English speakers. I have lived in Hong Kong for eleven years, and am married to a wonderful HK lady who I have been together with for almost 22 years. As a result, I can speak some Cantonese and a little Mandarin. I have a clear understanding of the difficulties presented to a Chinese-speaker who is learning English. Using this and unique tutoring techniques developed over years, I can effectively teach you to pronounce English in a very natural way. Reading, comprehension, grammar, vocabulary... whatever you need, I’ve got you covered. I also do document editing for businesses and students. In my experience, learning is best accomplished when it is interesting. I put effort into ensuring studying English is as interesting— and therefore successful— as possible. Rate discounts are available. Please inquire for details. I look forward to working with you soon. Thank you! Note: during these troubling Covid times, I am only providing tutoring by video call for $350 hkd per hour.

I'm an English Tutor available for - Phonics - Grammar - Reading - Writing - Sensory Play - Cambridge Trinity courses - Any other training I have over 8 years' of experience teaching English and currently work in a secondary school. Previously I've worked in several kindergartens and primary schools. My students primarily range from ages 3 to 12. I might consider older students though. The question: is it easy to learn English? There is no definite yes or no. For me personally I would say it's way easier than French, German and Chinese! Learning a language does require effort, and more importantly, motivation and enthusiasm! If you're not interested you won't effectively learn that's for sure. As someone who mastered the language at a young age, I can definitely relate to second language learners' difficulties acquiring the English language. But did you know that second language learners actually have the ability to be more well-versed in the language they've learnt than natives? It's true! Second language learners pay more attention to the grammatical and linguistic aspects of English than natives do. If you/your child wants to learn English in a fun and interactive way, don't be hesitant to contact me!

Start learning English together

The most difficult part in learning a foreign language is the practice, which can be acquired only by conversing with a native speaker. For people willing to practice foreign languages, it is difficult to find a private language tutor who lives or works in their city. 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.

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.

Is English a Difficult Language to Learn?

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.
