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.

Extra information

I'm flexible and can teach online (on zoom or skype), at a student's residence, or in a café - whatever works best for you.

I give personalized homework so that you get the most out of our lessons together.

About Me

There is no more rewarding work than teaching, and I take real pride in helping people achieve their English learning goals.

As a native English speaker from the South of England, I speak very clearly with a so-called ‘received pronunciation’ accent, which is perhaps best described as ‘BBC English’. This is the accent taught in British language schools, and students therefore find it very easy to understand me.

When I’m not obsessing with English, Dutch, Spanish or Italian, I can normally be found doing something sport-related (I love cycling, running, football, basketball, cricket, tennis… the list goes on!), socialising with friends, hiking or traveling.

My love for language and words extends beyond teaching. I’ve written speeches for CEOs and politicians, and articles for national magazines and newspapers. I’m also currently writing a book about the English language.

Education

• First Class Honours (cum laude) in Politics with Economics at Loughborough University (2002)
• Diploma in Public Relations from the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (2008).

Experience / Qualifications

• Nearly a decade's experience in private tutoring;
• Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) (2012).

Vuoi parlare l'italiano? Italiano con Rob per tutti
Ciao, my name is Roberto :) 
I graduated in Political and Economic Science at the University of Milan. After working for a year for an American company in Milan, I moved to Australia, where I have worked, studied and traveled for two years.
It has been an incredible experience! I had the opportunity of visiting beautiful places, discovering so many different cultures and developed myself from a personal and professional point of view.
Since two years, I have been living in Haarlem - a wonderful city close to Amsterdam - and to the coast 🌊 - in the Netherlands. I love teaching and helping people to find out more about Italian culture, history, and arts. I would love to use all the modern techniques of teaching that I learned and practiced them with you. Teaching is an extraordinary passion! Parliamo italiano!

Learn how to play violin in English, Portuguese and Spanish (suitable for all ages & abilities)
Hi! Originally from Madeira (Portugal), I have been playing the violin for more than 20 years. After graduating from Bachelor and Masters, both at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, I have decided to pursue my education in the teaching field, currently enrolled on a second master's degree, this time in teaching. In addition to already having a vast curriculum as a soloist or orchestral musician, I consider myself highly passionate about teaching, not only violin but also music theory. I have been very lucky to have had great teachers, who, in addition to have taught me the violin and the love for music, they have also shaped the person I am today. I can't find anything more rewarding than to share everything what I learned throughtout all these years!

English lessons levels A2 to C1 Online and Offline
Latin was popular a thousand years ago, French - a couple centuries ago, English is the language of the 21st century! We'll work on Speaking and Writing skills, and, of course, Grammar. For advanced learners I fancy such books as Destination and Grammar in Use (we won't be restrained by just these, though). With beginners we'll maintain decent active vocabulary. After the lesson I'd appreciate feedback a lot :-)
