English, test prep, personal requests, ESL (experienced teacher)

I will make a personalized study plan for your goals, big or small, typical or unusual. I teach general English, and prepare students for TOEFL, IELTS, SAT, AP and other exams. However, I also love working with very specific requests, like preparing a person for a job on international trains, explaining the US university culture, understanding a book or learning to speak without an accent.

At my lessons, we play games, watch videos, chat, etc. I want to use things that you enjoy.

At 14, I left Russia to study in New York. Now I use English in professional academia in Amsterdam. I have taught teens and adults of all levels at an ESL school; now I give private/group online lessons.

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.

English Tutoring with Holistic Approach for All Levels
English has become the Lingua Franca of our times. It's a valuable skill to possess, beneficial for everyone. It comes handy in the ever-developing world that we live in and opens doors to many places, also in the mind. Additionally, bilingualism enhances the cognitive skills. Whether you'd like to improve your speaking skills and break the language barrier or you wish to prepare better for an English exam, I come to an aid. I'm a 3-year Linguistic student, I've achieved the C1+ levels in English, on the CEFR scale. I have 2 years of experience living in London, where I acquired RP (received pronunciation) and 3 years of experience in the International Academia (Amsterdam). My linguistic background gives me the capacity to explain the sounds and various processes of the language, from a perspective many natives do not know. In teaching, I practice the holistic approach. It is my belief that language is for people of every age and education, but I'm aware that everyone deserves a personal approach. That's why I offer the first meeting unpaid, so we can get acquainted and discuss the expectations of both sides. In classes, I will try to raise your confidence and knowledge in English, on 4 levels of proficiency: Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing. I will focus on your strengths and teach you how to use those to your advantage in learning. We will elicit your potential and together achieve the goals you set for yourself.

Christopher
English conversation classes : speak like a true Brit
Hello! Hola! Привет! My name is Christopher and I’m a British person with a passion for languages (yes, it can happen…) Whether you’re a beginner or a decent speaker looking to broaden your horizons, 

I will help you better express yourself in English. I offer friendly informal classes, with a focus on conversation and pronunciation. 
I can also help you with grammar and vocabulary and all the technical stuff.
 Together we’ll develop a study plan which suits your needs. And along the way, we’ll explore the weird and wonderful world of British culture.

 With over twenty years in advertising, I’m an expert communicator in English. 
I’m bilingual (French) and have studied Dutch, Spanish and Russian, so I have a good feel for the learning experience. Together with my teacher training, I hope to apply these skills towards helping others. 

I firmly believe that good communication can make the world a better place. 

Hope to see you on Skype sometime soon :)

Spanish classes. Basic, intermediate and advanced levels. Conversation and grammar, all ages
Me especializo en que el estudiantes logre mantener una conversacion fluida en español utilizando la hora de clase para mejorar pronunciacion y fluidez. A la vez se le brinda al estudiante una guia practica donde se le explicara la gramatica y podra hacer infinitos ejercicios practicos que le ayuden a mejorar su comprension y analisis de texto. Tambien trabajamos con imagenes, sonidos y videos para que el estudiante logre reconocer, interpretar por el mismo y mejorar su capacidad auditiva. En los niveles basicos e intermedios utilizo un sistema donde el estudiante pueda escuchar, copiar y repetir informacion similando el inicio de aprendizaje de su idioma natal. Asigno tareas despues de cada leccion e informo el progreso del estudiante mes a mes.I specialize in students being able to maintain a fluent conversation in Spanish using class time to improve pronunciation and fluency. At the same time, the student is given a practical guide where the grammar will be explained and they will be able to do infinite practical exercises that will help them improve their comprehension and text analysis. We also work with images, sounds and videos so that the student can recognize, interpret for himself and improve his hearing. In the basic and intermediate levels I use a system where the student can listen, copy and repeat information similar to the beginning of learning their native language. I assign homework after each lesson and report student progress month by month

Learn English from a native English speaker! Formal and Informal.
I am a British student currently studying in UvA. As a native English speaker, I would love to also teach others a usable, practical, formal or informal way of speaking and writing English. Willing to teach older students, but I have more experience of teaching those from 6-16.

Cambridge English Exams/IELTS tutoring from a native speaker teacher /examiner
I specialise in training and coaching for the Cambridge English Language exams and IELTS. You receive detailed feedback on your strengths and weaknesses and you'll discover how to upgrade your reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. If you're retaking the IELTS you'll find out where you have been going wrong and how to get the score you need.

Learn Italian and/or English. All levels, no pre requirements needed
I am bilingual, fluent in Italian and English. I have lived and studied both in Italy and in the United States. I have tutored both languages before. I have been and I still am a student myself, therefore I try to keep my classes fun and very interactive. I will approach the lessons according to the learning style that suits you best and I am open to new ideas on how to make it more interesting and easy to follow. I do assign homework but it is usually some "hands-on" material, such as watching a movie in the language I am teaching you or learning a song. I believe that these approaches are the best when trying to learn something new. This also depends on your needs and the reasons why you are learning the language. If you are interested in learning for professional purposes then the sessions would be set up a bit differently and so will be the homework.
