English Tutoring For All Levels: General and Business English, English for Academic Purposes and Job Interview Preparation.

I am an enthusiastic teacher who has taught general and business English, and English for academic purposes. Having experience with both teenagers and adults, I specialize in tutoring English based on four skills: Listening, Reading, Speaking and Writing.

I plan my lessons regarding the student's needs and goals. In my lessons, I prefer using different teaching coursebooks and authentic resources (e.g. online articles, newspapers, magazines).

Since I have studied in different disciplines such as language teaching, literature and communication sciences, I could promise various lesson contents in each lesson to keep you excited during your learning process.

If you would like to learn English with me, please feel free to get in touch! I hope to hear from you soon!

Very satisfied with the lesson we had last weekend , definitely will continue ... Thank you
It is very difficult if not impossible to get my son speak highly of a teacher who makes him do more reading and writing. :) Merve proved to be an exception. She has a very positive attitude, knows how to set the balance between hard work and fun work, establishes a very good dialogue with kids. We are lucky to have found her.
Merve is geweldig. Echte aanrader!

English lessons with a CELTA-qualified native English speaking teacher / Engelse lessen met een ervaren CELTA-gecertificeerde docent
Are you looking for a qualified native English teacher (British) with extensive teaching and business experience? If so, I would love to help you! I have a very simple teaching philosophy. Every single lesson must be challenging, rewarding, and fun – as the best way to learn is with a smile on your face. I adapt our lessons together to your unique needs and goals, including: • improving your accent and pronunciation; • helping you avoid steenkool English and typical ‘Dunglish’ words; • broadening your vocabulary; and • perfecting your use of tenses. Most important of all, I can help improve your confidence, which is the key to learning any language. A speciality of mine is Business English, so I can also help with everything from preparing for an interview or speaking in meetings, to giving a presentation. While my classes are 100% in English, I can also speak Dutch and Spanish. This gives me a real insight as to why students make certain mistakes, and how to best avoid them.

Hi there! My name is Anna and I am a native English speaker living in North Holland. I currently teach English at a bilingual school to vwo/havo/vmbo students (secondary school students). Next to that I tutor English professionally from A2 to C1 level. If you want to improve your written/spoken English in a professional business setting, then I can assist with this. I can also help prepare students for language exams, or improve their general English proficiency. I have worked as a teacher for over 5 years and during that time I have gained experience teaching to students as young as 4 years old, as well as adults. I am open to tutoring any age from A2 level and up. I am currently available Monday late afternoons/evenings, Wednesday late afternoons/evenings, and Friday late afternoon/evenings. I am flexible on weekends. About me: I studied psychology and organizational leadership in the US. I worked as a primary school teacher and then as a high school teacher in the US, in addition to tutoring independently and at tutoring centers. After relocating here, I attended Utrecht universiteit to become a certified teacher in the Netherlands. I currently work at a bilingual school and teach English grammar and literature to students between 12 and 16 years of age. I spend my limited free time cooking in excess and feeding my friends/neighbors/colleagues, or exploring the city, or taking care of my two unnamed fish, or attempting to bake (I am bad a terrible baker, ironic given my name!). Ultimately, I am passionate about teaching and learning, so that is how I spend most of my days.

Sonja
English tutor in Amsterdam, various subjects, kids & adults
Hi everyone! I'm a Native English speaker that offers private tutoring for various means (homework help, studying for exams, etc...). You can send me a message if you are interested, and we can discuss the possibilities. I currently hold a Bachelor's degree in Minorities & Multilingualism, with a minor in (English) linguistics. I live very close to Amsterdam, and I'm open to tutoring both children and adults. I also have some experience as an after-school (assistant) ESL teacher for Middle school kids back in 2013-2014. I really loved that job, so I am thinking to work as an ESL teacher in the near future as well :) I've continuously been told that I am great at explaining complex things in a simple way, by both my international friends when it comes to understanding (English) assignments, as well as my language conversation partners. I also help my mom with editing and proofreading her poems (she's a writer). Moreover, I'm currently also self-studying Japanese, so I understand the frustrations and challenges that come with learning to master a (new) language!

Carina
Swedish, Danish and English courses from beginner to business.
I have worked fulltime, for the past 12 years, as a language teacher and translator. I was born in Sweden, to Danish parents and live with an Englishman. I teach said three languages to both private and commercial clients, placing great emphasis on client needs and abilities. Cultural knowledge is also very important to the understanding of any language and is therefore included in all courses. The dreaded grammar is the fundamental building block to a language, but I try to make it as fun as possible.......as well as the homework and self-study.
