Subject

English

English lessons for children

Determine the student's level and create fun and inviting lessons accordingly.

English for beginners

I use flashcards and phonics and play word games, to create a fun and comfortable environment.

Conversational English

The student tells me his / her hobbies and we choose a topic accordingly. Therefore we can talk about interesting topics, which will catch the student's attention thoroughly.

English for traveling

I have traveled a lot and LOVE sharing stories about different countries and learn myself about new places

Reading and writing English

We all love stories, the student picks his / her favorite book and we read together, going through all the pronunciation needed. Then we can write our own story or version of the read story.

Understanding English movies

Describing and practicing what happens and is being said in the movies. Understanding sentence structures and new words
