-Traditional class: In most cases students want to improve their grammar, writing and reading skills along with speaking. If that is you, my first task would be to check your current level. We can do this either with a short placement test or by having a discussion.
-Certificates for EFL (English as a Foreign Language): I can train you for all mainstream English Language certificates, such as Michigan ECCE and ΕCPE, Cambridge Proficiency, TOEFL, IELTS, NOCN, TIE exam, etc. When you are aiming for a certificate in English you must keep in mind that all the skills you have to develop are the same, we just adapt to doing different kinds of exercises against the clock.
I have been doing online classes before it became mandatory due to the recent physical distancing guidelines. Do I prefer them against in person classes? I think they are not that different after your first or second online class! And there are definitely pros to online education:
-With my online classes all the educational material will be shared with you and you will always have instant access to it via Google Classroom.
-I share videos, mp3s and other material for your homework, that would be otherwise difficult to work on.
-Online classes are not impersonal or cold. There is real human connection, funny moments, sharing, just like when we are face to face.
-You can contact me any (reasonable) hour you want if you stumble upon something that challenges you.
-And finally, you don't lose time because you need to get dressed and get out or even tidy your place for the teacher to visit you. I don't know about you but not having to tidy up is a big incentive for me. :)
I needed a C2 certificate for work and I chose the most appropriate one with Stevi. We did an intensive course for 2 months and I got my certificate! I had to study hard and Stevi was very supportive, always accessible but also demanding, as she should, because the goal I had set was hard. Thank you!
I feel so lucky to have found Mrs Stevi. She is very sweet, calm and makes the lesson fun. Mrs Stevi we love you so much, you are the best!
In my effort to learn English, I was lucky to find Stevi, an excellent teacher and human being. As a middle-aged person, I needed my teacher's understanding and patience in order to learn. She made everything simple for me and I started to love the language and I owe it to Stevi, for her gentle and calm attitude. I am so thankful and we still have a long way to go! You'd be lucky to have her as your teacher!
