Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
As a native English speaker with knowledge of various foreign languages and global issues in history and the political economy, I can provide English lessons to various learner levels and age groups in many different subjects. I received my master's degree in International Relations at Leiden University and worked in international diplomacy at the UN. Previously, I worked at universities in research administration and media companies. I have a TEFL degree and plenty of experience managing academic events and teaching. Additionally, I can provide any educational help needed in studying disciplines in the humanities - such as politics, economics, history, research analysis, writing, ethics and learning languages. I am more than happy to develop personalized lessons, courses, and learning strategies that you are looking for!

Conversational English: Conversation Practice and Improvement
I teach conversational English. The initial purpose of my lessons is to get my students to practice speaking English. "Practice makes perfect", it's true, but during our practice sessions, we will soon discover our weak spots and we will have to address them. The real purpose is not just practice but IMPROVEMENT. So we will dedicate a portion of our sessions together to fixing pronunciation and learning the proper way to use tenses and grammar in everyday speech. We discuss movies, literature, politics, sports, music and anything that two friends might talk about. Role playing, in which we act out situations from everyday life can be a lot of fun. The topics of our conversations largely depend on your interests. By the end of this course, you should be able to speak English fluently and confidently.
