English for adults with low-bandwidth contact, very flexible.

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
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.

About Me

Hello there! My name is Klaudia and I am a linguistics student with a passion for grammar. Language is an everchanging medium and that fascinates me. I wonder how it shapes cultures and communication. I have lived in two countries outside my country of origin for that reason.

I attained English proficiency certificate in 2017 and the teaching certificate online in March 2020. I've studied and worked in the academic environment since 2017.

Teaching is a very reciprocal activity that not only gives satisfaction at both ends of the video call, but also allows for growth of both parties and makes room for more.
As a personal tutor I always focus on the individal needs of students and as I get to know them I try to tailor the lessons in an engaging way.

All languages in the world are connected and I find it fascinating to draw the connections between them by getting to know words in other languages. I try to incorporate it into my way of teaching, as some students, just like me, find it a good way to memorize vocabulary. A little bit of etymology hasn't hurt anyone! With children, however, I would use a different teaching tactic.

English is a 'lingua franca' in todays' world and lets you see this world more broadly.
You really should, can and will know it well!

Why not practice it with me online, whenever it fits your schedule?

Education

> Linguistics Bachelors of Arts at the University of Amsterdam

It's my first degree, but hopefully not the last one, as I would like to explore the field of academic writing and education.

Experience / Qualifications

> 120-hour TEFL course online
> I've tutored secondary school students
> I've tutored adults in ESL courses
> Long experience in the classroom setting

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.

English lessons levels A2 to C1 Online and Offline
Latin was popular a thousand years ago, French - a couple centuries ago, English is the language of the 21st century! We'll work on Speaking and Writing skills, and, of course, Grammar. For advanced learners I fancy such books as Destination and Grammar in Use (we won't be restrained by just these, though). With beginners we'll be maintaining a decent active vocabulary. After the lesson I'd appreciate feedback a lot :-)

Mathematics - Abitur - IB Diploma with enthusiasm for success!
Are you looking for support for your child? Does your child have difficulties following the subject matter of the IB Diploma or Abitur and feels overwhelmed? Your reason for reading Ever since I was born, my curiosity has never been contained - I was always looking for new challenges and as soon as something interested me, I wanted to know everything about it, no matter how long it took. Among my friends and colleagues, I am known for familiarizing myself with new topics in a very short time and developing a profound understanding The key to success: education In my opinion, free education is the highest and most valuable asset we have and we should do everything we can to continuously educate ourselves. At this point it would be wrong to say that "unfortunately" everyone is knitted differently. Thank God this is exactly the case and this is where the biggest problem in our society begins. Even in early years we are not optimally encouraged. Parents try their best to give their children the best education, but they and the teachers are often overwhelmed with the situation at school. Of course, this is not entirely the fault of the teachers. Imagine supporting 30 children individually in 90 minutes. Effectively this means 3 minutes for each child and now they see your own daughter or son trying to explain a complex task in that time - let's be honest! Here it quickly becomes clear that this is not only too little time for your child, we would also fail because of it. Always looking for self-optimization Self-optimization has rarely been worth as much as it is today. I teach students from all walks of life and this is what I love about my job and why I ended up becoming a personal coach. Inflation does not only exist in the economy, knowledge is also inflationary in education. Once we stop and continue to educate, over time our level of knowledge becomes less valuable. So we have to do something to educate ourselves. achieve goals My goal is to give your daughter or son the best possible education in exactly the subject where most people fail - mathematics. It doesn't matter whether it's in the German Abitur or in the International Baccalaureate (IB Diploma), mathematics is a big hurdle for most people. My goal is to make this hurdle easier for your child. This includes not only dryly explaining tasks - no, but restoring fun and motivation. Nobody wants to study for something where they have the feeling of standing in front of a wall and only understand the train station. In the end, I want your child to be prepared with a deeper understanding and to lose fear of difficult tasks. For this I optimize learning techniques, fill in gaps and see where your child's individual goal is. In the end, your child should go to my lessons in a tailor-made way and optimally supported. Of course, I'm not a silver bullet and development varies from student to student, but my personal aim is to offer you premium service clothing that is otherwise rarely found on the market. Thank you for your interest Did you know? On average, a reader decides within the first few seconds whether to read a text to the end. Best regards Yves Maurice Pukies
