Sebastian
Swedish course for adults, students or kids! (All skill levels)
Hej och välkommen! Jag heter Sebastian och jag är 31 år gammal. I currently work as a Swedish teacher at the Volksuniversiteit The Hague and I love every minute I can spend with my students. A Volksuniversiteit (litt. folk university) is an institute for non-formal adult education in the Netherlands. I am a Swedish native speaker and general language enthusiast. Besides Swedish I speak English, German, Spanish, French and Italian. Having learned multiple languages myself I am sure that I can successfully teach you Swedish in a fun and relaxed manner. My teaching focus lies on speaking the language as much as possible. Immersion is key to language learning. Think of small children. They are language geniuses. Why? Because they speak as soon as their brains permit them to speak, without worrying about making mistakes. Therefore, it is paramount to start using the newly learned words immediately in order to prime our brains to get comfortable with the new language. Do you already have Swedish knowledge? No problem! Instead of building the basics we can design classes that meet your personal needs and preferences. My classes combine speaking, listening & grammar exercises in interaction with me. Furthermore, I show you Swedish food, music and places. On top of that, I introduce you to the best technological tools (homepages and applications) to boost your language learning and take it to the next level! I am extremely confident that you very soon will have the same success that I have had in learning languages! My past and current students would testify to that. I look forward to hearing from you! Jag ser fram emot att höra ifrån dig! Greetings, Hälsningar, Sebastian

Stavie
Online or at-home English tutoring for Beginners or Advanced users
Hello! My name is Stavie and I've been using English ever since I can remember! Because of this, I am interested in helping others discover, learn, or improve their English skills. Have you just started learning English and you need someone to help you with this journey? Do you already have a good level you just need someone to practice with? Would you like help with an interview or presentation in English? I can help you learn a language from scratch or help you practice so you can use the language at work or in a personal setting. In our first lesson we will have a casual talk, ideally in English so that I understand your level, and we will discuss your needs and objectives in order to set the goals of our course. As a Communications professional, I have spent the past six years studying and working primarily in English. Being a bilingual English-Greek speaker, I am attracted to teaching because it not only allows me to discover new abilities and develop them but also provides me with the opportunity to share my knowledge with people who are keen on learning something new. My experience allows me to offer courses for both teenagers and adults. I can also offer support with homework in English for Elementary, Secondary and High-School Students. I am looking forward to meeting you and being part of your journey in learning English! In case you have any questions before booking a course with me, do not hesitate to contact me.

Chloé
French Lessons (Grammar, Vocabulary, Reading, Pronunciation, Spelling, Writing)
As a French native speaker, I would be happy to help young pupils and students with learning and practicing French. This class is best suited for students who have a beginner or intermediate level of French and may encounter difficulties with French grammar, vocabulary, writing, reading, spelling, or pronunciation. I have specialized in French literature in secondary school, therefore I can also help students with the methodology and structure of writing essays in French. For each class, I will prepare exercises (which will vary from student to student depending on their needs) and during each lesson we will complete the exercises together and work on the mistakes. If needed, I will also assign homework. My goal is to teach French in an interactive, engaging, and stimulating manner to make sure that it is both enjoyable and enriching for the student. Furthermore, it is important for me to assess the student's needs and provide him/her/they with the most adapted learning methods which will allow me to address the student's shortcomings in the best possible manner.

PRIVATE LESSON OF ENGLISH GRAMMAR (learning and consolidation)
Many French people admit not feeling at ease when they have to express themselves in English to English-speaking people. They understand well what they hear but do not have solid keys to express themselves with ease, fluidity, by constructing rich sentences. They think that what they lack the most is the vocabulary but generally, what they lack the most are grammatical keys on which to build everything. The grammar of a language is the equivalent of the foundations of a house. Without foundations, a house crumbles. Without grammar, the expression remains wobbly, approximate, even false to the point of sometimes becoming incomprehensible. This is why I offer private lessons exclusively in English grammar to allow you to weld your "foundations" and free your expression by giving you confidence. Together, we will take, deepen and consolidate your grammatical knowledge We will reinforce your mastery of the fundamental structures of the language and will also work on the idioms which English people love and which will allow you to make a difference. In order to progress in the best possible conditions, I offer private lessons in the evening of 1h or 1h30: Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. Saturday mornings between 9:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. or afternoon between 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
