    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!

    Private English tutoring from an experienced tutor.
    My name is Paul-Mattias, nice to meet you! I have been a private tutor for over 7 years now, have 5 diploma's and have studied in Amsterdam, Leuven and Oxford. Using my experience as a former expat, a near-native speaker, and a graduate from the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam, I would be glad to guide you in mastering the English language. Pupils that receive my homework guidance describe me as being: trustworthy, considerate, flexible and cheerful. With my no-nonsense approach, and my personally tailored focus, my students get results quickly and say they feel comfortable to ask anything in my tutoring lectures. In addition to the gained knowledge with regards to the English language, I often hear my students say that they experience a boost in confidence and resilience because of our private tutoring lectures. The private tutoring happens at your pace, at your preferred time and in the way that best serves your learning style and your needs. I have methods and literature to offer, but working with literature you already have works as well. Interested or want to learn more? Feel free to send me a message!

    Dr. Pradeepika
    Professional teacher -Private Classes: Maths, English, Science. Lets make it simple !!
    My name is Dr. Pradeepika, Gold medalist and with 6+ years of experience as an assistant professor, faculty development trainings and school teaching/helping experience to students of various age groups. These years of experience in school support have allowed me to develop a methodology adapted to the needs and profile of the student. I offer Math, Science(Physics, Chemistry, Biology), Social Science, English classes for children and adolescents (primary and secondary) who are struggling to find a way of working that suits them. Extrovert, bubbly, and above all, a lot of humor! I believe that everyone learns in own way. This is why I do not have a rigid method but adapt to the contrary to the specificities of each student. I evaluate the different levels of teaching methods, their strengths, possible weaknesses, or delays, and I develop my course accordingly. My priority: to restore the student's confidence: things are within everyone's reach when they are well explained! I believe in active teaching methods: I try to involve the student as much as possible, to make him discover what works for him/her so that he can continue his career independently. Finally, I bring specific help when preparing questions or exams in a more difficult subject. My rate includes full tuition (private lessons, the ability to ask questions outside of class time, writing and correcting questions, etc.). I believe students learn best when they are in a positive and happy environment. By using the different teaching methodology , I develop a classroom that is supportive and fun. I believe, it is important for students to feel happy and comfortable with me so that they can develop the confidence to speak up and put forward their ideas. I believe every student needs to be challenged regardless of their ability. I believe that the more confidence students have, the better their chance is of succeeding.😇 Looking forward to reading from you!.

    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.
