Thanks Jay, it was a great helpful lesson. I get a lot of useful information. Soumaya
It was a productive lesson with Jay. Within 90 mins, we worked on improving my motivation letter for a job application. He helped me with my written language. After the discussion, I can express myself in a precise way. Besides, according to my grammatical errors, he gave me several pieces of advice for self-study. Thank you very much.
Understanding how to use English Time Tenses properly has and continues to be a challenge for many business owners and professionals. What do they mean? What are their auxiliaries? How are they formulated? Which time words correspond to which time tense? Is there a difference in using these tenses in speech versus in writing? Learn how ALL of the English time tenses work in 3-compact sessions! If you're a small, medium or large business with a complete staff, I can come to you and help correct and bring awareness to how you're using the language, to enhance your business for meetings, travel and rendezvous of all sorts.
Mainly for adult and professional learners, this a one-time 90-minute face-to-face session dedicated to identifying your needs as a first-time learner of English. It includes an English Assessment exam to help determine your level and assist in diagnosing your current weaknesses with grammar/speaking. What better way to understand your linguistics needs than through the ears of a Native English speaker and trainer?! Find out your weaknesses and strengths so that you can build a plan for yourself.
I am a New Yorker living and teaching here. I am a relatable, experienced and professional English trainer. I offer training-packages throughout the Mediterranean and the European Union. I provide Immersion Courses, American English adaptation/translation services, career-building tools and documents and have a niche for pronunciation correction and TOEIC Preparation. I teach general ESL (English as a Second Language), business and industry-specific English and all-purpose English too! This is also a communicative English class for developing speech. Here we will explore, vocabulary with nuances in meanings, synonyms, idioms, proverbs, some phrasal verb and prepositional verbs and all-around social English. The possibilities are endless for focusing on Public Speaking, Intonation and Voice Projection as well. This may be stimulated by interesting audios, short readers or videos. If there are topics you have in mind, we can additionally explore and incorporate this into your lessons. If you need to start speaking English, this class is for you. **NOTE: This class can also be offered and adjusted to accommodate multiple teenagers, adults or professionals as a group session, to make it more economical for you. It is advised that groups not exceed more than 5 persons per session. Charges apply to distances teacher must travel; especially, if out of standard office hours or on bank holidays!!

Klaudia
English 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.

Michael
Improve Your English With An Individual English Training
In this course we will begin with an intake interview in which I assess your level and discuss your needs. Following this, I will develop a course to meet your aims. Everybody's wishes are different. You may want to develop your fluency, broaden your vocabulary, or work on your grammar. Or perhaps you would like to improve your pronunciation or writing skills. It could be a combination of these. As a highly qualified and vastly experienced teacher I have the necessary skills to be able to draw up a course and find the appropriate resources to aid your progress. During the course you will get the practice, feedback and guidance needed to improve your English level. At the end of each lesson I will give you homework so that you can continue your practice between sessions and at the beginning of the next lesson I will check your homework with you to make sure you are keeping on track! Ready when you are! 😊

Lex
Tutoring Maths / Physics / English online or in the Amsterdam / Den Helder area
Hi! My name is Lex. I have been teaching math and physics for 3.5 years for high school in Den Helder. Since this year I am now a bachelor student mathematics at the University of Amsterdam, and am looking for a few new students to be able to supervise for tutoring. A few points that really set me apart from the rest are: - my tutoring experience, I have been giving 3.5 years of tutoring experience at many different levels - I work a lot less formally, this mainly ensures that the student is not afraid to ask questions or will feel "stupid" - I am very flexible with the times - I can explain everything in many different ways - the student can always send a whatsapp if something fails, and then I help him with that Online tutoring is certainly possible, and I also ensure that all notes that I make are forwarded so that they can be reviewed later. The best I recommend is a block of 2 hours in a row for tutoring, hereby I am sure that I can sufficiently help the student. If there are any questions, feel free to send me a message.

Pascale
Learn Dutch fast or improve it in a playful way (webcam)
As a creative copy professional and philosopher, I see every lesson as an experiment. To keep us both on the edge of our seats, I continuously explore new ways of teaching that fit your specific needs. Feel tempted? Book your first lesson and get one extra! Doubts? Dutch might feel a little violent to a delicate mouth in the beginning. But once you get passed that, a sea of inspiring and quirky new ways to express yourself will open up. To help you move beyond that hump, I will adjust my lessons to your personal passions and interests, including your specific reasons to speak and/or write in this language right now. Two kids that are roughly the same level can share one webcam lesson of one-hour minimum. Keep in mind that we will stay online for at least 15 minutes extra, as young ones will need at least two 5 minute breaks.

Lola

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.

Nnediuso
The only Diuso Magic for the Dollar girls and boys
English, Mathematics and Sciences are over all an important field in a child's life. You would be able to learn the basics from the smallest of information and evolve as we go on. I use some tactics as deriving the formulas for you and teaching you how to do it yourself for emergency purposes in Mathematics and examples, acronyms and poems for English and Sciences as well.

Paul
English Conversation lessons, be prepared to talk .
Many people can struggle or feel uncomfortable when learning a new language. I teach English conversation and use exercises to highlight the basics to get through a conversation. There can be nothing worse than having t go through grammar tables after a day at work. I work on speed of delivery, pronunciation, simplicity. If you need to give a speech in business English then this can be daunting for many people, there is no need to be afraid, take the first step and contact me. The lesson usually overruns by 10 minutes.
