Violin and Viola Lessons - Learn a new instrument or improve your skills
I'm an experienced teacher, with students of different levels/ages. I enjoy the diversity of students and understanding of their different ways of learning and goals and for me, this is the best part of the job - to know an treat each student as a unique person that they are. You'll be encouraged to make music from the very first day. Together with some necessary music theory, always applied to the instrument, you'll learn pieces of gradual difficulty. We make use of progressive tuition methods and you'll learn a solid technique by playing scales, bowing and fingering exercises and easy tunes to begin with. Repertoire includes etudes, playful and challenging concert pieces and from the very beginning duos to play with the teacher.

Composition Lesson
Composition lessons are for anyone who wishes to compose music, for any instrument, emsemble and/or electronics music. My teaching method combines various approaches and styles, supporting practice with theoretical knowledge, and most important developing creativity and helping the student in making their imagionary visions come real. For each student a different palate of tools is offered, according to the student's musical wishes and ambitions. I teach the basis of western-music composition - theory, harmony, counterpoint, score-reading, solfege, rhythm, analysis and more. Further I suggest broad overview of world, jazz, pop, new/contemporary music, various styles in electronic music (popular and experimental), improvisatory compositions, graphic notation, text and game pieces, music for theater, film and dance and interdicsiplinary works which combine music with other art fields.

Leïla
English, French, Exam Prep & Basisschool German Lessons
I specialize in helping students from elementary school all the way through high school for their final exams. I take a very practical and less theoretical approach to teaching since this is the least tended to aspect of learning a language in school. I have taught for 4 years in an elementary school with ages 7-11 and also done tutoring with students in middle and high school for 5 years. I adapt to the personality of the student and always hope to develop close ties so as to base this teaching on facts but also on trust. French, English and German are my mother tongues and I have basic understanding of Spanish and Dutch as well.

Introduction to Java programming - a guide to understand the concept of Java as a programming language
This course will help you to get a good understanding of the concept of programming and algorithms through the programming language Java. It requires a very little knowledge of Mathematics and logic from you and promises to strengthen your base about the subject. I have been coding in java for the past 7 years and know it from roots. The method of my teaching i very easy going, however, i aim to instill an interest upon the students towards the study. This is why I keep my content very puzzle like and interactive, where the student challenges himself to learn new things. This course is highly customizable, depending on the progress of the student, I choose the amount of hours I need to invest on classes.

Olivia
Language and Culture, the combination to learn our language/ IB program
Hallo, mijn naam is Olivia en ben volledig bevoegd in het lesgeven van de Franse taal. Ik heb een Master Degree en ben IB gecertificeerd. Bonjour, my name is Olivia and I have a Master in teaching the French language as well as the certification for the IB program (bilingual exam) for foreign high-school students. For the past 7 years I have taught at International Schools, given private tuition to students of different ages and today also teach French at Berlitz Language Institute. De laatste 7 jaar heb ik lesgegeven op Internationale Scholen, privé lessen en werk nu ook bij Berlitz Language Instituut. Ik heb een inspirerende en interactieve manier van lesgeven ontwikkelt die je snel niet alleen de Franse taal maar ook de cultuur laat proeven! After having lived for 16 years in Asia and taught all these different nationalities, I developed an inspiring and interactive method to teach French language linked with the French culture; food, people, art, fashion. I guess language is the first step but the "Etiquette" is what makes you more "Frenchy" or being able to do business in French and with the French! With me, you will learn French at your pace, according to your needs and your motivation; for leisure or business oriented. I have created lesson programs like "French for the Chef" and "French for business in textile industry" for example. I give lesson for adults and teenagers and I also prepare for the IB program (Language A and B).
