Hello my name is Henry,
I'm 24 years old and I'm from New York. I have a diploma to teach English from the University of Cambridge and I have been teaching English for over 2 years to children and adults of all ages and levels. I offer general English classes that I will adapt to your needs.
Je suis qualifié pour enseigner l'anglais aux apprenants de tous niveaux et je suis spécialisé dans l'amélioration de l'accent.
¡Hola! Mi nombre es Henry, tengo 24 años y soy de Nueva York. Tengo el título de profesor de inglés de Cambridge y tengo dos años de experiencia con niños y adultos de todas las edades y niveles, doy clases de inglés y las adapto a tus necesidades.
I use authentic materials such as magazine articles, movie clips, and music videos that I have adapted for the purpose of English lessons. You'll find that these materials are much more interesting than standard textbook worksheets.
Unlike most teachers, I pay special attention to the learner's accent and have many techniques to improve it. This is an aspect of English that is too often ignored in language classes.

Why learn English? Just after Mandarin and Spanish, English is the third most common native language in the world and it is definitely the most learned second language. English is the today's world's lingua franca. Many occupations and professions require at least working knowledge of English, as it has become the most widely used language used in international publications, international trade, telecommunications, entertainment and diplomacy.
How hard is it to learn English compared to other languages? It depends, of course, on the languages you speak already. The most difficult aspects of learning English are the vast vocabulary, the differences between spelling and pronnunciation, the subtleties of grammar and the different ways it is used around the world.
New York is a global center of commerce, finance, media, art, fashion and diplomacy. With its 9 millions of inhabitants, New York is the United States' most populous city.
Having a long history of immigration, and especially because of its status as a port of entry to the rest of the country, New York is home to groups of nearly every ethnic origin in the world. It is estimated that almost 37% of the city's population is foreign-born. The most important immigrant groups are Latin-Americans from Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Mexico, Ecuador and Haiti, followed by communities from Russia, India and Bangladesh, while the number of Chinese immigrants is one of the largest in the country! The most widely spoken languages in New York City are: English, Spanish, Chinese, Russian, French Creole, Yiddish and French.
