My name is Sam and i'm a 28 year old Irish man living in Amsterdam! I have a CELTA certificate in English teaching and over three years of experience giving courses online and privately, both to individual students and groups. My students have been both beginners and advanced learners, with very different reasons for learning the language! I also have a speaking level of the French language!

To begin, we can find your needs and objectives for learning English and from there we can progress in our work together! I have a degree in Criminal Justice studies and another diploma in Social studies, so if you're needs are specific to law/humanities I can meet any needs - I have also taught tech English and business English with many of my students.

Personally, I am a writer, currently working on my first book I hope to publish! I love creativity and anything to do with languages, which helps me to create courses that are interesting for any student - I have a patient, kind and understanding approach to learning English that helps my students to feel relaxed enough to make those extra steps necessary to improve! If you are interested, send me a message and we can discuss your needs and see if we would be a good team together! I

About Me

I come from a little town in Ireland, though for the last three years I have been living on/off in Paris, before moving to Amsterdam! I decided to become a teacher because I love working with people, and, as a writer, I love the English language and it is great to watch people progress while I also get a better understanding of my own language!

I have been teaching for three years to many different types of students with lots of reasons for learning English; exam preparation, business English, conversation classes, general English, school exams, legal English and tech English are some of the different types of courses I have given to students of all backgrounds and levels!

My approach to teaching is to provide an environment that allows you as a student to speak as much as you can with no fear of judgement - our courses will be based around speaking, with all grammar/vocabulary and other exercises being used to bring us to this final point - speaking! I am a very patient person and can adapt to the needs of any person, no matter how big or small, so that nobody ever feels any less than they should in a classroom setting. I consider learning important, but I also consider feeling good about yourself while learning to be just as important.

As a person who lived in Paris while learning French, I understand the difficulties that can be faced with learning a language, and I can promise to provide an atmosphere that allows these difficulties to be faced smoothly.

Education

I have a Level 8 Hons Bachelors degree in Criminal Justice Studies which I completed in Waterford Institute of Technology in Ireland.
I also have a Diploma in Applied Social studies which I completed.

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.

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.

You learn to speak, understand and write better English in a fun, personal way. Together we expand your vocabulary and improve your spelling and grammar by talking about your interests! If you also like literature, animals, sustainable living, travel, art or yoga then we have something in common to get into! I am a Teaching English Foreign Learners (TEFL) certified teacher who grew up in English in international schools abroad. I even think in English now, and my accent when I speak is mildly American / accentless.

Adult ESL, ESL for expat parents, ESL in the Netherlands
After working for four years as a private tutor in Amsterdam for numerous international families, I have discovered a love for teaching Adult ESL. My goal is to not only to teach ESL tailored to life in the Netherlands, but to also offer advice and support to expat adults around life in Amsterdam. I currently work with the parents of many of my students who wish to improve their English. I am a former primary school teacher (International School of Choueifat-Dubai) who now works exclusively as a private tutor. My students are mainly expats, though I also do have several local Dutch students. Having moved around quite a bit, I understand the stress families undergo adapting to a new school system. After four year in Amsterdam, I also now understand the unique stress parents also endure adapting to Dutch culture and regular use of the English language. My teaching methods focus on improving Adult ESL that is tailored specifically to life in the Netherlands. I design my teaching plans, with my students, to cover the most essential aspects of English that are needed to navigate life in Amsterdam. Moreover, I have a deep understanding of how English in the Netherlands differs from conversational English in other countries. I have a grasp of the nuances of both languages and the areas which pose particular difficulty. I really enjoy the motivation of my adult students and the unique friendships I have formed through teaching. I know how isolated some parents who are neither native English nor Dutch speakers feel when moving to Amsterdam. I am happy to teach all ages either in person or via webcam. **All rates include 21% KVK sales tax

English Language - speaking, listening, reading and writing
I am a CELTA and PGCE qualified teacher specialising in teaching adults of all ages. I have over seven years’ experience teaching English in Germany, the UK, Australia, Macedonia and Japan. In the past I have worked for banking corporations, community centres, language schools and universities. I base my lessons on you and can adapt lessons to what you require. I have experience working with very low levels of English and literacy through to university level. We can work on conversation and fluency, pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary, reading or writing. We can talk together about what you want and how I can help you get there.

French and/or tutoring for children or adults, all levels. My goal is to keep students challenged and passionate, and move towards real progress and improvement together. I am very flexible as to what can be taught and would prepare classes in advance. I can assign homework after every lesson and provide periodic progress reports.

Thomas R.
Professional German/English classes from an International School Teacher
This class is for everyone who wants to improve his/her English and German skills. I do not specifically specialise on tutoring for specific exams (I can obviously do that as well) but I want to offer a class that is customised to the students needs. I always try to teach in a fun and engaging manner with real-life context. People learn best by having a positive attitude towards a subject, therefore, I see it as important to establish a positive rapport with my students and spark their interest in the English and German language.

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!

Anneke
English tutoring for those who would like to improve their knowledge of the English language.
I will adjust my tutoring based on what the student/student indicates. For example, if you have trouble with grammar, I will look for specific assignments. If you have trouble with reading texts, I will look for reading texts that we then check together.

Bio Teacher for people want to learn Spanish or Biology , private lessons for beginners and advanced students.
Classes The importance is to see your weakness and your strengths Because each ability it's quite different (hablar, escuchar, escribir, leer) I like to focus on the conversational part and listening without disregarding the writing and reading skills. I prefer to use slides, videos and images to understand the lesson. Feel free to contact me for your Spanish or Biology lessons!
