Language Learning Coach - Learn HOW to learn a language, use it with ease and have great conversations

“I feel stuck”

These words I hear again and again, from beginners to advanced.

The majority of students who come to me are frustrated.

They spent many years studying languages at school. They’ve spent both their time and lots of money.

Only to find themselves still struggling to form a sentence. Still struggling to be able to understand a native speaker.

If you’re here then I’m assuming you share some of these same struggles.

You get confused trying to memorize grammar rules, remember vocabulary, and makes sentances. You don’t know how to learn every day. You get distracted and then you feel too tired to keep going.

Believe it or not, I’ve been there too and to be honest, it sucks


to have another language is to possess a second soul
Charlemage


Now, I want you to trust me on your language journey

Imagine finally knowing exactly what to do when you sit at your desk to learn a language.

Imagine knowing how to learn grammar, how to remember vocabulary and make it stick, how to speak, and how to write beautiful sentences.
Imagine going on holiday somewhere and interacting with locals. Laughing, eating, dancing and living life in a different language.

English Private Tuitions (Adults and School Students) + IELTS
I am specialized in teaching English to adults and students in international and private schools. For adults, this class offers a general English practice or IELTS test preparation depending on what the student is looking for. The lessons will first start by evaluating their abilities in the four main skills (Speaking, Listening, Writing and Reading) then we can work together to plan the weekly lessons accordingly. As for the school pupils, the student shall present his/her previous test papers and results to identify his/her weaknesses and strengths. The second step is to follow the school's book(s) and curriculum (unless the parents wish otherwise). The classes consists of test revision, homework assistance and lots of practice. Any communication occurring during the class must be in English. The class usually consists of one student.

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.

English Tutoring with Holistic Approach for All Levels
English has become the Lingua Franca of our times. It's a valuable skill to possess, beneficial for everyone. It comes handy in the ever-developing world that we live in and opens doors to many places, also in the mind. Additionally, bilingualism enhances the cognitive skills. Whether you'd like to improve your speaking skills and break the language barrier or you wish to prepare better for an English exam, I come to an aid. I'm a 3-year Linguistic student, I've achieved the C1+ levels in English, on the CEFR scale. I have 2 years of experience living in London, where I acquired RP (received pronunciation) and 3 years of experience in the International Academia (Amsterdam). My linguistic background gives me the capacity to explain the sounds and various processes of the language, from a perspective many natives do not know. In teaching, I practice the holistic approach. It is my belief that language is for people of every age and education, but I'm aware that everyone deserves a personal approach. That's why I offer the first meeting unpaid, so we can get acquainted and discuss the expectations of both sides. In classes, I will try to raise your confidence and knowledge in English, on 4 levels of proficiency: Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing. I will focus on your strengths and teach you how to use those to your advantage in learning. We will elicit your potential and together achieve the goals you set for yourself.

Mina
English teacher with plenty of experience and patience
If you want to learn English language, I am here to help you. It is not difficult as it may look, but you have to be persistent if you want to reach your goal. Let me show you that English classes can be fun and studying can be interesting. I'm an English teacher for more than six years and I have plenty of experience. At the beginning of the course, studying material is particularly selected for each student depending on their level of knowledge. After the type of course is determined, focus is on the weak spots and improving whatever skill a student is lacking in. Speaking is always emphasized. In class students can suggest other materials, books etc and ask for lessons they want to study. Asking questions is always a good thing and cooperation between teacher and a student is crucial. If you agree, contact me and start your English course today! I'm looking forward to helping you learn English!
