Spontaneous teacher for children and adults with considerable experience!
Hi everyone, my name is Carolina born and raised in the Netherlands and have worked abroad for many years. I have followed a dance education and various sports courses, which I still enjoy teaching. Because I have worked and lived in different countries I have gained a lot of experience with speaking in different languages and how difficult that can be at times. I was once asked to help a foreign colleague improve his Dutch, that's how it started... So I've been teaching the Dutch language for years now. I am currently commuting between 2 countries, the Netherlands and Turkey. I also still give lessons here (sports, dance and language lessons in Dutch, English and Turkish). To be honest, my Turkish is still far from fluent enough, but the most important thing is to keep practicing and trying! Are you curious about how to start a spontaneous conversation in Dutch? Or do you want to better prepare yourself for conversations with your partner's family? Then you have come to the right person, come to my class and experience how you can learn Dutch in a casual way :)

Lessons with Carolina are fun, varied, and interesting! She always finds ways to challenge my skills and help me constantly improve my Dutch. I speak more Dutch in real life than before having lessons with Carolina, which shows that her method is working! I think Carolina is a great teacher, and I would recommend her to everyone - young, old, less and more skilled in Dutch, etc. :)
I was nervous about my first Dutch lesson, but Carolina made me very comfortable and understood my level of the language to best support my success.
Excellent teacher, helpful remarks and good vibe during the online classes making me looking forward to the next lesson.
Carolina has a really light and fun way of teaching. The subjects flow naturally and is very interesting how fast the lessons go. Definitely recommend her!
Excellent teacher
...
My way of teaching is mostly fun. Why?! It can be quite scary to learn another language, let alone to speak it... I can give you the feeling of security, so that you dare to speak, in this case the Dutch language. We will focus on listening, pronunciation and of course talk talk talk. During all this I also explain the necessary grammar, of course fully adapted to your level. Because however you look at it, grammar is also necessary, especially as a basis! But don't worry, it won't be a boring list of just grammar, that's why that bit of fun in a lesson is so important! If you're open to that, I'll also give you homework, which will challenge you more ;) Are you ready for this challenge?! I look forward to seeing you in my class :)
Teaching children is almost "an art" Not everyone can put themselves in the mind of a child while that is so important during a lesson! I teach in a playful way, where they learn without them really noticing it. I do this through pictures, videos, various materials that I use during the lesson and also songs that we practice and sing together. Curious, come take a look and see if your child likes it! Greetings Carolina.

Beginner Spanish Lessons Level A1 - Learn Spanish in Easy Steps
Spanish is a global language and very useful abroad. I even took Spanish courses and then went to Nicaragua, Spain and Peru. Before going abroad or on holiday, it is best to have a basic level. I'd be happy to help you with that. You learn Spanish level A1, Spanish grammar, as well as spelling, writing and speaking. We start with your individual level. Whether it's learning, numbers and colors, or routines of the day or ordering food in a restaurant. Another time you will learn to say the conjugations of verbs, days of the week and the time. Are you interested in a special theme? Then you learn to write specific words and a small text about them. Learning a new language is most enjoyable and easiest if you find it interesting and useful. I would also like to help you with your homework and preparation for exams!

Learn Spanish as a foreign language with a native teacher
I am a native Spanish teacher from Venezuela. I have been teaching Spanish for about 5 years now. First, in Ecuador, where I lived for 4 years. Now, I am currently living in Turkey, where I teach my own language to foreigners from all over the world. I can help you from the first lesson to speak Spanish in a fun and easy way. I can adapt the lessons to your needs.

Let's study reading, spelling, and writing with Teacher Jude.
Why English is important? English is the language used for all of our international communication, whether it be in politics, science, the media, or the arts. It is also frequently used for social interaction and entertainment. A solid command of English opens up more chances for us in life, most notably in our careers. You'll learn how to read, spell and write with me. -Teacher Jude

French Lessons (Grammar, Vocabulary, Reading, Pronunciation, Spelling, Writing)
As a French native speaker, I would be happy to help young pupils and students with learning and practicing French. This class is best suited for students who have a beginner or intermediate level of French and may encounter difficulties with French grammar, vocabulary, writing, reading, spelling, or pronunciation. I have specialized in French literature in secondary school, therefore I can also help students with the methodology and structure of writing essays in French. For each class, I will prepare exercises (which will vary from student to student depending on their needs) and during each lesson we will complete the exercises together and work on the mistakes. If needed, I will also assign homework. My goal is to teach French in an interactive, engaging, and stimulating manner to make sure that it is both enjoyable and enriching for the student. Furthermore, it is important for me to assess the student's needs and provide him/her/they with the most adapted learning methods which will allow me to address the student's shortcomings in the best possible manner.

English, French and Dutch academic reinforcement courses + CEB and CE1D preparation
If your child is having difficulties in school, I would love to be able to help them overcome them. I had the opportunity to work in several non-profit organizations (Schola ULB, Youth Club, CIFA, ABEF) where I helped young adolescents to understand their subject in French, English and Dutch. I also helped them prepare for their exams, including the CEB and CE1D. We will work together on their lessons, we will review the vocabulary and grammar they need to know and we will work on their difficulties in order to overcome them. In view of the current situation, I teach only online.

Dutch conversation for kids and adults, to read, to write and understand the language.
In our class we will be relaxed, I will help you with the Dutch conversation, the grammar, reading (like an article or a topic what I will give you). I will help students for beginners-lower-intermediate level. After every lesson I will give you homework for the next lesson. Between the two lessons you can always ask me a question about the subject what we’ve discussed. If you have a subject what you’d like to learn about the Dutch language, let me know. I’m looking forward to see you in my class.

Learn Dutch as a second language adapted to your needs!
I am a very experienced teacher in Dutch as a second language. I love working with people from other countries because it widens my view and apart from teaching you a new language, I will learn from you about new cultures. For me, learning a new language is first of all learning to get around in daily life. So, a beginners course will always start with this basic information: introducing yourself; making appointments with the dentist, hairdresser, and so on; shopping; going to a restaurant; etc. On an intermediate level, we will work on your speaking skills: having a conversation with your colleagues about your weekend, reading a newspaper article and talk about it; talking about your hobbies, etc. With advanced students we can work on whatever field they need; for example work or other things that are important for you.

Turkish Lessons (In-Person OR Online) for Adults and Kids from an Experienced and Patient Teacher For All Levels-Learn&Practice&Speak!
I have been teaching Turkish for 18 years in Istanbul. I started to teach when I was studying the Turkish Language and Literature. I worked in a language school and at the universities, I suppose that I gained success. 😊 My achievements are directly proportional to my students’ success. My students are mostly teachers, consulate officers, international business people, and also travellers. I feel rewarded when I witness their progress in applying their Turkish language skills to their daily lives. Over the years, I have met hundreds of people from all over the world, taught Turkish, and told them about Istanbul and Turkey. Those people told me about their countries and learned to express themselves in Turkish. For example, I ask them: “Do you like Istanbul?” in Turkish it is “İstanbul’u surveyor museum?” or “ Traffic is very bad in Istanbul!”, “İstanbul’ da çok Trafik var!” The basic but correct conversation is really important for self-confidence in any language. If a learner can master basic sentence forms, the rest will come much easier. On the other hand, making mistakes is also very important. Especially, a learner can not speak without making a mistake the first and second time. My students are always varied and have diverse learning skills. My professionalism also allows me to tailor language education according to individual interests, needs, and capacities. In the classroom, I hold firm three main principles: first, providing a comfortable environment, second, creating an encouraging atmosphere, and third, establishing a collaborative instruction model. I consider that I developed an aptitude for making learning Turkish to become much easier, more enjoyable, and more practical for my students. I use a book prepared by a university in Turkey. I share the pdf version of the book for my lessons. I also adapt the materials according to the learner’s needs and support the book with my authentic materials. Even though I use a communicative approach, all my lessons are guided by a solid knowledge of grammar. On the online lessons, I send an e-mail after every lesson. That word file includes a vocabulary list, sentences (corrected and uncorrected versions, you can compare both of them easily), grammar points,s and homework for revision. In this way, you can find everything in a file well organized. When we have a face to face lesson, I give a hard copy of this list after every lesson. The lessons could be at my home office or in my student's house or office. I sometimes meet with my students in a coffee shop, I try to prefer silent places. :) How learning a new language opens a new window into a person, teaching Turkish is also the same for me! I was always interested in languages - I could speak a bit of Italian and learned Persian grammar except English. I always think about Istanbul -I was born and grew up here- it is a good place for self-improvement. First and foremost, Istanbul hosts international people coming from around the world. It is considering to me, I am lucky because I have one of the pleasant professions. When teaching Turkish, promoting cross-cultural awareness forms an important part of my lessons. Teaching the language involves both the students and myself in a dynamic conversation about our cultural backgrounds. Teaching Turkish is in fact not only teaching a language but also teaching a culture. I am interested in cinema, music and like visiting museums. I always share the activities with my students. I also teach Turkish to young learners. I started to study Child Development at Istanbul University as a second university in 2018. We say in Turkish, “Studies have no age!" If you want to speak Turkish well, please contact me. It is fun, and we will smile during the lesson!

Dynamic Dutch courses with a smiling native speaker ;-)
I use several methods which are specially conceived to teach Dutch to people who have a different mother tongue. I really like to use methods out of the ordinary like role games or methods with which you learn while playing. All these adapted to the student's situation of course. As I learned myself a couple of other languages, it is easy for me to detect difficulties a student can encounter and adapt the way of learning. I can teach in English, French, German and Russian.
