About Me

• I prefer giving one-on-one classes, but I’m also open to small groups of friends who want to do this for fun!
• It’s important for me to take a personal approach to cater towards your individual learning style, for instance getting to know a bit of your background, interests and motivation are important for me to be as helpful as possible to you.
• The primary reason I do this is because I enjoy it so much! It should be a fun, educational experience for you too.

Goeie uitleg, verschillende technieken en materialen kennis. Leer goed aan hoe je bepaalde effecten kan behalen in tekeningen/schetsen
Great first lesson. I’m looking forward to next one.
Mijn dochter heeft veel gedaan in een uur met Laura. Ze vond het heel leuk.
Mijn dochter en zus heb ik het cadeau gegeven. Ze zijn er erg samen van aan het genieten.
Ik heb de lessen van Laura cadeau gedaan aan mijn vrouw. Ze is aardig en heel kundig! We zijn erg tevreden en kunnen haar zeker aanraden!

Drawing and painting are for many people a great way of self expression and discovery. I have seven years of experience as an artist and have a background in psychology and mindfulness. I am happy to help you develop your ideas, technique, and self-confidence, at your own pace. We first discuss your goals for yourself and your art, and then we systematically work every week to reach your milestones. The great thing is that you see your process grow in your sketchbook, in your environment that you can hang it proudly on, and in the people around you whom you can make happy by sharing your art and your experience. My classes are very diverse, personal and often described as art and craft classes because we work with so many different ideas and materials! Besides my website where I sell my drawings, prints and paintings as a full-time artist, I also worked in a graphic art shop in Amsterdam. And so have insight into many different materials! So I can offer you all kinds of things if you want to go further with soapstone, clay, craft, acrylic pouring or crackle medium, on wall murals. I'm going with it! I am mainly here to support your creative expression, and show you some examples and techniques for inspiration or suggestion. So during the lesson I also create as an example and show you different options. So I'm like a Pinterest Board to you, and you ultimately make the creative choices in what you want to make.

Learn Spoken English for Communication and Public Speaking
These sessions are focused on English for people who encounter challenges in speaking and communicating and lack the techniques that are used for that purpose. We would develop situational vocabulary, corresponding verbs and adverbs that help transmit more precision when speaking. Our mission would be to see where you currently are in the language, strengthen any weak points and create awareness about points that need extra attention. These classes tend to take place in a more relaxed yet fun and stimulating environment. I constantly provide feedback to students about their progress and assign homework to ameliorate the practical and theoretical aspects of the English. This class is all about making English accessible and easy to learn to all through a variety of social and interactive stimulus.. You may request a full refund and get your money after the first class if you think that this class does not suit you.

Russian language and Literature for children with Russian-speaking background
Если Вы говорите по-русски и хотите, чтобы Ваш ребенок смог общаться на русском языке, когда вырастет, не только в семье, но и на работе, то этот курс для Вас. Я преподаю детям русский язык и литературу в одной из русских школ в Нидерландах. Поэтому не понаслышке знаю, какие проблемы возникают при обучении и как с ними справиться. Во время урока используются как стандартные русскоязычные учебники ФГОС, так и специальные издания для детей билингвов, живущих за рубежом. Основа курса направлена на улучшение письменной речи и расширение словарного запаса. Каждый урок включает в себя интересные для каждого возраста домашние задания. Возможны групповые занятия.

Mathematics tutoring for primary school students.
Is your child in primary school and does maths require tutoring? Does he think math is stupid? Turn me on! With fun and funny tricks and mnemonics, your child will quickly change his mind. Creating a good pedagogical climate and building a rich learning environment is always my goal. I stimulate the students to discover autonomously, to discuss together, to experience and to come to conclusions. My job is not to fill a barrel, but to light a fire. I am also constantly working to keep my students in the zone of closest development. In this way I promote their constant development and growth.

English lessons with a CELTA-qualified native English speaking teacher / Engelse lessen met een ervaren CELTA-gecertificeerde docent
Are you looking for a qualified native English teacher (British) with extensive teaching and business experience? If so, I would love to help you! I have a very simple teaching philosophy. Every single lesson must be challenging, rewarding, and fun – as the best way to learn is with a smile on your face. I adapt our lessons together to your unique needs and goals, including: • improving your accent and pronunciation; • helping you avoid steenkool English and typical ‘Dunglish’ words; • broadening your vocabulary; and • perfecting your use of tenses. Most important of all, I can help improve your confidence, which is the key to learning any language. A speciality of mine is Business English, so I can also help with everything from preparing for an interview or speaking in meetings, to giving a presentation. While my classes are 100% in English, I can also speak Dutch and Spanish. This gives me a real insight as to why students make certain mistakes, and how to best avoid them.

Summer
PYP & MYP Mathematics, English, Reading, Reading Comprehension, Visual Arts and Organizational Skills
I have 20 years of experience teaching both primary-secondary education in private and public schools. This includes working with second language English learners in addition to students with learning disabilities. Furthermore, I can assist in helping your child with their organizational skills.

Fortunella
Native Italian to teach you both essential and authentic ITALIANO!
This class is aiming at confident Italian speakers and practice is the best way to improve language fluency. My students and I love to split each class into two parts: the first half generally focused on grammar (foundations are crucial) and the second always dedicated to speaking activities and conversation. We'll talk about a number of different topics and share content and ideas while having lots of fun. Classes will be in English, hopefully in Italian :) Please contact me for a tailored learning program designed for your needs!

Klaudia
Scary class for adults with low-bandwidth contact, very flexible.
Ahoy! Thank you for wanting to practice, learn, read or prepare for exams in English. My name is Klaudia and I am an English freak / linguist. I have been teaching children, teens and adults for 5 years. 2016-2017 I had stayed in London where I learned my neutral accent. In 2019, I got TEFL 120h and from one year I teach professionally. Lessons are always tailored to what you need. I believe in individual attention. What interests you, we'll talk about it in English. I prepare for every lesson and expect the same from you, that's why I always send you emails or messages so that your English stays active in your head even outside of class. While class we use a number of assistance resources: handouts, interactive media web sites, games, music, comics, books, news and all. The biggest benefit of my approach is flexibility. I make slots to use in your calendar. The more you take a class, the faster you will see the progress. I think one lesson a week is fine, but one lesson every 2 weeks is an absolute minimum. Learn quickly when you want and enjoy using English. I prefer to teach online because of corona, but I will come to you up to 20 km from Amsterdam.

Rebecca
Spanish lesson 40+ BASIC (online) Lesson adapted to YOU
Always wanted to learn Spanish, but the regular lessons go too fast and/or it doesn't stick, then follow these tailor-made lessons. Why class for 40+, because we have learned from our own experience how difficult it is to learn another language later in life and that most books/courses are based for younger students. All lessons are adapted to your individual needs and speed. You do not need to purchase any books, all materials will be delivered by email. This is because we work with several books and in this way we can offer a lot of learning material and thus make the learning material varied (and also rehearse more often if necessary.) There is no minimum or maximum number of lessons, you are the one who determines the frequency. Of course you can also do these lessons with your partner. Lessons are given online via Skype and last 1.5 hours at a time. Lessons can be given during the day or in the evening.

Abdo
Multi-graduate professor offers classes in Arabic and English
Our lessons will focus on the grammar aspect and the conversation aspect. In particular, how to apply grammar rules to everyday conversation topics. Lessons are structured according to the student's future and future needs. The focus of our classes will be to create a personalized program that entertains the student while enabling him to learn as much as possible in the shortest possible time.

Japanese HIRAGANA, KATAKANA lessons ♪ ひらがな、カタカナ レッスン!

In this class, you will learn how to write basic Japanese alphabet in 2 ways, which is called HIRAGANA and KATAKANA. It doesn't matter which level you are, I will be your backup with using textbook. I can also offer the exams to recap your knowledge. Let's enjoy learning Japanese together ;)

Andi
Engelse les voor kinderen/ General English- English for exam preparation for young learners- lessons for classes (more than 2 students)
This is a class for young learners whose ages range from 7-12. The lessons revolve around American culture, school, and usually, a combination of the content of the coursebook and whatever the students' interests are. Another focus of our classes can very well be exam preparation- Cambridge Starters, Cambridge Movers, or Cambridge Cambridge Flyers. The target language is English and the best way to learn is through immersion. This is the reason why all instructions are given in English but if necessary, at the beginning of class, I can juggle 2 languages. These classes are brought to life through storytelling and games, all delivered in a relaxed, judgment-free, and fun way. If you have any questions, feel free to DM me. Thank you!

Charlotte
English lessons from a UK native! All ages welcome!
Hello everyone! I am an experienced and passionate English teacher located in Amsterdam. All my lessons are fun, and tailored to my student's individual needs. I have worked in an English language school teaching children from the ages of 9-17, with my own class. I was educated at a top English boarding school, from excellent teachers where I received an A-Level in English Literature and Language. I also hold a Diploma in Higher Education from the UK. I am looking forward to begin our English language adventure together!
