Description

Hello, my name is Silvina!

A little about me…
I am a TEFL qualified English teacher from the UK. I have been teaching English as a foreign language for almost 4 years both face-to-face and online. I have experience teaching general and business English as well as exam and interview preparation classes.

I am a friendly and enthusiastic person, and love to bring creativity to the classroom! The thing I love the most about teaching is the opportunity to meet people from all over the world and learn about different cultures and lifestyles.

What I offer
I offer tailor-made English classes according to your needs and goals. I use my previous teaching experience and online materials to create unique lessons for you. I like to use authentic resources and a variety of different materials, including articles, videos, podcasts and online activities.

As a teacher and a learner of languages, I understand the importance of being able to use the grammar and vocabulary you have already learnt in real-life situations. I therefore like to focus my lessons on conversation practice and incorporate grammar, vocabulary, writing and listening exercises when needed.

Teaching Approach
I am a patient and calm teacher. I have an encouraging yet relaxed teaching approach and I like to get to know my students because I think it is important to create a comfortable learning environment.

Available classes
I teach the following classes on any platform (Skype, Zoom, Google Hangouts, etc):
– Tutor Lessons (helping with homework)
– General English
– Business English
– Exam preparation (IELTS, PET, KET, FCE)
– Interview preparation
– CV and cover letter edit and review

Prices
Before our first lesson, we can arrange a free 15-minute chat to talk about your objectives and access your level. For me, it is really important to understand what you want from your English classes.

€20 per hour

– Lessons in pairs: above tariffs plus an extra €5 per person per hour.
– Lessons on the weekend: above tariffs plus an extra €3 per hour.

Availability
I am available to teach Monday to Sunday, anytime during the day and early evening.
