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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

French and/or English tutoring, conversation class or test preparation
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.

Amélie
Courses in French, Dutch, English, Mathematics, History, International Relations, Law, Science and Geography.
I am a Belgian (flamish) and French student doing a master in International Law, at the University of Amsterdam. I did my Bachelors in International Relations at the University of Geneva (magna cum laude) and a 6 months-exchange at UCSB (University California Santa Barbara). I also did my secondary education in an international high school in France, where I specialized in sciences (18/20 for the final scientific baccalaureate). The classes I had there were given out in French, English, Dutch and Spanish. My previous tutoring experience: 2017/2020: I worked for three years in a tutoring institution in Geneva (called ARA) - where I was mainly teaching French, mathematics and English. During this time I also worked for two years in a Private School (Florimont), where I was taking care of different classes of students (11-16 years old). I was responsible for helping out the students with their homework (in various subjects). 2021 Through Apprentus and other websites, I helped several younger students (5-15 years old) with improving their skills (notably in maths and french). Since September 2021 I am currently working with "bijlesthuis", a dutch tutoring institution. My students are adults who are seeking to improve their levels in french, dutch and english. In parallel, I am also giving french classes to other students through apprentus. I can teach in French, Dutch and English. I love teaching and helping students with progressing and learning new skills. I am a flexible, calm and positive person! Looking forward to meeting you! Amelie

Nicolas
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!

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.

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! 😊

Rob

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.
