Mathematics tutoring for primary school students.
Is your child in primary school and does maths require tutoring? Does he think math is stupid? Turn me on! With fun and funny tricks and mnemonics, your child will quickly change his mind. Creating a good pedagogical climate and building a rich learning environment is always my goal. I stimulate the students to discover autonomously, to discuss together, to experience and to come to conclusions. My job is not to fill a barrel, but to light a fire. I am also constantly working to keep my students in the zone of closest development. In this way I promote their constant development and growth.
Ancient Greek tutoring for junior and senior students of the gymnasium.
Hello! My name is Erin, I am a 20 year old student and I have been tutoring Greek in Amsterdam for almost 3 years. Do you need help with grammar school subject Greek? Then I can help you catch up and train your translation skills! --Introduction-- During the first lesson we will briefly look at the situation of the student and think about what I can help with. we make a tailor-made schedule to, for example, catch up on backlogs, brush up on skills and prepare for tests: in a way that works for the student and gives them the courage to enjoy the subject again. --Location-- The lessons can be done online or in the city of Amsterdam. Because I had a winter sports accident, I can't easily come home or to school in Amsterdam, but students are welcome in my little attic house in the center. I am also almost always available to receive students at home, because I have been studying independently from home since my accident. Greetings and hope to see you soon, Erin

Learn Spoken English for Communication and Public Speaking
These sessions are focused on English for people who encounter challenges in speaking and communicating and lack the techniques that are used for that purpose. We would develop situational vocabulary, corresponding verbs and adverbs that help transmit more precision when speaking. Our mission would be to see where you currently are in the language, strengthen any weak points and create awareness about points that need extra attention. These classes tend to take place in a more relaxed yet fun and stimulating environment. I constantly provide feedback to students about their progress and assign homework to ameliorate the practical and theoretical aspects of the English. This class is all about making English accessible and easy to learn to all through a variety of social and interactive stimulus..

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.

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.
