Really good experience. John is very professionnal.
Very helpful and clear feedback on my text. Totally recommend John!
John is an excellent tutor. He goes through the material very carefully and explains every aspect in a clear and understandable way. In my case this was for the subject matter linguistics. John is also a fantastic creative writing tutor and was super helpful to me when I was writing my essays. He is someone who really cares about giving his students a quality lesson that they can benefit from and I cannot recommend him enough.
Wonderful teacher! A very dynamic person who keeps the student interested in going on with the basic as well as more detailed aspects of Latin language, both Classic and Medieval. Highly recommended.
We all have some kind of creativity that we want to express, but sometimes it's hard to go it alone. This class is for people who want to improve their abilities at writing in English. This includes those who want to write creatively as well as people who need to improve their academic or business writing skills.

Send a message explaining your needs and John will reply soon:
The more detail, the better.
Ex. "Hi, when are you available to meet for a lesson?"

Any-level English with a fun, energetic native speaker
I am a professional English teacher with over 8 years experience in various teaching roles. I have experience of teaching all ages from 3 up to 65+ in group classes or 1-on-1. Specific purpose teaching such as public speaking or business English also taught. I will always make the class exciting, fun and full of laughter. I think people learn better when they are engaged and enjoying themselves. I have a wide variety of teaching materials too as I currently teach online to Chinese schoolchildren for some hours of the day. I am incredibly flexible and will have a conversation with you before the class to see what learning environment will work best for you or your child. Homework can be set too. I have just come back to Europe after spending 3 years in South Korea as a teacher to children aged 5 - 18. Before that I worked alongside children with learning difficulties for 5 years, as a sports coach and a playground designer too. Come and have a first class and see how great it is! See you soon!

Rita
French talking and reading with vocabulary and grammar lessons
Do you want to learn a new language in a fun and interesting way? Why not french? France is only a few kilometers away from Netherlands ! French is my mother tongue and I have always been fond of learning new languages. I can teach you how to easily and quickly learn french. I master grammar, vocabulary, reading and writing methodologies. As a student myself, I know how hard it may seem to learn a new language. That's why I find interesting to gradually implement new items to the lessons. We can start with listening and studying french videos in order to understand the pronunciation and have a general idea on how to read and enrich your vocabulary. When I feel like you've became more confident, we can start focusing on grammar which is the trickiest part of the french language. I think that we should find pleasure in learning. Adapting my lessons to your necessities is my priority !

Kevin
Spanish lessons for all levels, Test Prep Tutoring
Hola amigos! My name is Kevin and I am a Business Administration professional with first-hand experience in tutoring foreign students from different nationalities. My linguistic spectrum consists of English, French and Spanish, which I master both orally and written. As a native Spanish speaker, I possess significant experience in the construction of argumentative texts and academic essays in Spanish. On the personal side, one of my greatest passions are philosophy and literature. As such, I am constantly reading and translating texts in order to increase and develop my language skills. Consequently, my work methodology is mostly focused on motivating the student to speak freely and to learn by acknowledging his/her mistakes. From the beginning, I will try to address the lessons 100% in Spanish, with the aim of familiarizing the ear to the pronunciation. In terms of written exercises, it is important to know what are the student’s learning priorities. When starting with the written part, it is important to know the student is dedicated to practicing and that he will also benefit from this in his future experiences. This is why the exercises will address current social problems that allow him to be fluent when he meets other Spanish speakers. In order for the student to learn as easily and efficiently as possible, homework exercises will be given after each lesson, drafted according to the parts that the students wishes to master best (speaking, reading, listening, writing). This way, the student will benefit from a fluid learning process and, with dedication, will be able to excel in Spanish in a short period of time.

Arzu
Russian language for English speakers: grammar, reading, speaking, writing
I am a native Russian speaker and can teach Russian to English speakers. I can help you to practice grammar, speaking, pronunciation, listening, writing skills. Also can help with learning Russian from the scratch, starting with the alphabet. During my lessons, I primarily teach my students not to be afraid to speak Russian. Before classes, I plan topics on which we can talk to expand our vocabulary, and be able to maintain a conversation on a variety of topics. Also, classes are held in a communication format, so that students learn to understand Russian speech, to be able to ask the questions, reflect on the topic, etc. Depending on the needs of the student, we study the fundamental grammar rules, which are most important for grammatical speech. To consolidate the material, we do various exercises and tests. Usually, these are texts with gaps that need to be filled. We also do oral exercises so that students can apply grammar rules not only in written assignments but also get used to applying them directly in their speech (which is sometimes a problem because we used to forget some rules in our spoken language). Since Russian phonetics is quite complicated, I also select various exercises for diction, adapting them for each student (which is always a lot of fun). I hope to see you on my lessons!

Elena
Russian speaking, grammar, listening with a native speaker
Hello everyone! I am a Georgian who was born in Moscow and lived there for 12 years. Russian is my first language and I speak it fluently. I am very good at explaining Russian grammar and I can help with expanding your Russian vocabulary. In general, lessons will include speaking, grammar and listening exercises. I have a lot of handouts for practicing Russian and some handouts that explain grammar rules in details. Also, I would like you to think of what you want to improve, and I am sure together we will make this work!

Maravilla
Spanish lessons and conversation with a native teacher
Taking up a new language can be an enormous challenge, but with the right techniques and a relaxed environment, it can be totally fulfilling! Whether you already have some level in Spanish or we are starting from cero doesn't matter, what is important is that you're willing to make the most of the lesson and you are interested in improving your skills. As a native speaker from Spain, I adapt to the necessities of each student: speaking, listening, grammar, specific vocabulary for work, support with the school homework or any aspect the student wants to master in. So, if you're looking forward to learning Spanish in a dynamic and efficient way, just let me know and we will start with it!

School education is an important part of a child’s life. Sometimes it can get harder to understand school lessons and and they might need extra help. By focusing on each student with individual classes it will be easier for them to understand the lessons.
