Laura
SPAANS LEREN! Native spanish speaker teacher with certification by Instituto Cervantes and more than 8 years of experience in teaching
I am Laura , a Spanish woman living in The Hague. I have been teaching and helping high school students with their homework and study methods since 2014 as a private tutor. I have experience as a language teacher in different schools in Madrid (extracurricular activities) for children between 3 and 10 years old. I work as a Spanish teacher since 2019 in various countries, helping numerous students to improve their speaking, listening and writing skills. I studied Nutrition and Dietetics (4 years bachelor)at Complutense University of Madrid and Linguistics in Leiden University. Depending on the goal, the learning or lesson method is different. Normally, the first day I meet the student and we talk about what he or she expects and the topics we need to pay more attention. From that, I organise and structure a learning plan for reaching the desired goals (listening, speaking, writing, etc) or level (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2).

Piano lessons for all ages, for beginners and advanced students
The piano is one of the most universal instruments. As a piano player you can be your own orchestra and play as a soloist, but you can also make beautiful music or accompany ensembles, in any musical style. In my lessons I want to offer the student a broad foundation on the piano: learn to read notes, play and interpret existing pieces of music learn to listen carefully, play it by ear and after a while learn to make your own piano part playing with chord progressions, gaining insight into harmony and chord theory learn to improvise and come up with your own pieces teamwork, because this way you learn to listen even better My own roots lie in classical music, which provides a good technical basis for the instrument. Ever since I was a student, I have enjoyed making music the most when you discover various music genres (such as classical, jazz, pop, world music) for yourself. This way you learn to connect these different musical worlds. As a teacher, I want to pass on all these possibilities to the student, so that after playing the piano for a while, he/she can determine his/her own path.

The singing lesson that suits you! Also music theory and songwriting
Singing is extremely important to everyone! It is an outlet and relaxer and you can put all your feelings into it. I have also noticed that children and adults who are insecure benefit enormously from taking singing lessons! I look at each person as an individual in my lessons, so I also individually consider which exercises suit you. I can also teach you if you are interested in music theory and / or songwriting (reading notes, etc.). I can tell you so much more because I am so enthusiastic about this, but I prefer to do this when we meet. Because of course I am also curious about you! Hope to see you soon!

Music is a complement of the man, and that was clear from the start, this experience gave me value as a person, and that translated into my music. The vast knowledge of many styles, instruments and great experience allows Bart to transparently, correctly and simply pass his message to his students, working with them to draw their own path and understand how to reach their objective, in a way which you are always looking forward to the next lesson.'

This programme has been carefully curated alongside young artists over the course of six years and integrates different forms of visual expression such as : sculpture, installation, performance, drawing, painting and many more. We explore unexpected parallels in art history and visual techniques, building up a wide range of artistic references and technical knowledge in a playful environment in order to explore the sensitivity of our own bodies, thoughts and the world around us. Although the programme is compiled both with genre, technique and art history in mind, there is always space for adaptation according to the preferences and visual tastes of the student.

Conversational English for personal or professional development
Do you communicate with clients, colleagues, or people close to you in English? Do you want to? Are you interested in integrating your personal, professional, and academic experiences into natural English expression? Ready to share insights and practical applications from your experiences in support of your goals? If you've answered yes to some or all of this set of slick marketing-style questions, please read on!;) I'm a TEFL-certified native English speaker with experience and passion for support learners of all ages and levels to speak more fluently and express themselves more deeply in service of diverse goals. My approach to language learning begins with asking coaching questions and getting to know each other so that I can tailor the feedback, learning materials, and lesson plans to your abilities and needs. Analyzing this information will help us to set your initial goals and discuss how techniques for cognizant learning as well as for deliberate language practice and performance help create a sustainable environment where your independence and self-actualization may flourish. I believe that language learning starts with building on personal capabilities and innovating through conversation comes much easier on common ground. Through the methods and techniques I will share with you, I have acquired fluency in both Spanish and Dutch so I can understand, translate, and provide instruction in these languages to support your English learning. As a current student in the B.A. English Language & Culture degree program at Leiden University, I am learning a great deal more about grammatical forms, linguistic elements, figures of speech, and how to facilitate effective communication in English. My specific area of focus is education, particularly through language acquisition research and methodologies, such as dialogue and conceptual reasoning in English as a Lingua Franca. I have earned certificates in Teaching English as a Foreign Language(320hr) and Hatha Yoga & Meditation Instruction(200hr) in addition to A-level Rhetoric, Literature, Logic, and Public Speaking courses in the Honors College while earning my business school degrees(B.Sc). These experiences have helped me to recognize the enormous importance of individual learning in combination with group work/training and feedback to improve one's practice and performance. I will immediately share appropriate and useful resources as well as feedback for your learning and practice. I can create interactive content during/after training sessions (audio, visual, literary) as requested to give you a competitive advantage beyond the context of the lessons for your own self-study as well. Please contact me for more detailed descriptions of training sessions, levels, or anything else related to the lessons I have on Apprentus (including Hatha Yoga & Meditation)! I’m very grateful to pursue this life path and share in the creation of cooperative practice and learning environments with fellow students.
