    French and/or English (literature, grammar and syntax)

    I specialize in tutoring English and French as they are both my native languages. I have extensively studied French and English literature for more than 10 years and would wish to convey what I've learnt to other students. My goal is to keep students at a high level with their foreign language courses and to maximize their interest for both of these beautiful languages. I assign homework after every class in order to keep the student captivated but mainly to make him/her improve.

    About Me

    I believe that practice makes perfect, therefore I will make the student practice a lot, whether it be oral or written skills. After I will assess, and give my feedback and/ or some tips. I believe in a soft but disciplined approach towards languages.

    2004-2018 I graduated from the Lycée International with a double diploma composed of the French scientific high school diploma and the Option International Baccalaureate (American section)
    2018-present: BSc Economics and Business Economics (IBEB) at the Universiteit van Amsterdam

    Experience / Qualifications

    I worked for Athena summaries
    I Have been a private French, English, and Maths tutor for over 5 years now.
    I completed an internship at Cisco Systems
    This class is for english speaking students that wish to enhance their performance in mathematics (mainly for high school). Calculus, Algebra, Functions, Probabilities will be the main topics covered. Regarding the study progress, exercises will be at first solved with me and progressively I will give the student autonomy. I believe that practice makes perfect (after learning the theory), therefore the goal is cover as many exercises as possible during class.

    Klaudia
    Scary class for adults with low-bandwidth contact, very flexible.
    Ahoy! Thank you for wanting to practice, learn, read or prepare for exams in English. My name is Klaudia and I am an English freak / linguist. I have been teaching children, teens and adults for 5 years. 2016-2017 I had stayed in London where I learned my neutral accent. In 2019, I got TEFL 120h and from one year I teach professionally. Lessons are always tailored to what you need. I believe in individual attention. What interests you, we'll talk about it in English. I prepare for every lesson and expect the same from you, that's why I always send you emails or messages so that your English stays active in your head even outside of class. While class we use a number of assistance resources: handouts, interactive media web sites, games, music, comics, books, news and all. The biggest benefit of my approach is flexibility. I make slots to use in your calendar. The more you take a class, the faster you will see the progress. I think one lesson a week is fine, but one lesson every 2 weeks is an absolute minimum. Learn quickly when you want and enjoy using English. I prefer to teach online because of corona, but I will come to you up to 20 km from Amsterdam.

    EN - Hi, I'm Lucie and I would be glad to help you learn French, be it from scratch or to help you improve. I love to make my students speak since I strongly believe that practice is the key to learn a language and to improve your knowledge. I always structure my lessons according to subjects based on daily life situations (how to introduce yourself, how to make an appointment, shopping / grocery, going to the doctors, professional language, etc). We'll go through the grammar, vocab, and pronunciation. If you're intermediate, we'll also do some lessons about reading comprehensions. We'll put both the grammar and vocab in practice. And hey, I can teach in English if you want! FR - Hi, I'm Lucie and I would be delighted to help you learn French, whether it's from zero or to improve your knowledge. I love getting my students to speak since I think practice is the secret to learning a language and improving knowledge. I always structure my classes according to themes based on real life (how to introduce myself, how to make an appointment, do the shopping, go to the doctor, French at work, etc.). We will see together grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. If you are intermediate, we will also do text lessons. We will put both grammar and vocabulary into practice.

    Business English Lessons for Effective Business Communication (online/offline)
    Apart from general English language learning, this type of classes will focus more on English business vocabulary, grammar, business writing, business conversation and listening comprehension. This class would be suitable for people who plan (or already do) to study business/economics, want to enhance business skills for the business trips/clients, want to communicate and network effectively with international people in English. For this class I will use several books as materials (popular editions) dedicated to Business English growth. I will involve much conversational practice and discussion activities of specific topics. The material (books, texts, exercises) will be shared with a student. All the classes and preparation for them will be adapted to each student individually. Feel free to contact me for questions or book a time slot for a class.

    Estellei
    Learn French with a native speaker, professional teacher graduated from The Sorbonne
    My belief is that each student is different and requires a tailor made lesson to meet that student’s needs and goals. Every class is personalised for your own profile and is adapted as needed. I give priority to conversation, convinced that even from the very first day, one can start to communicate in the new language and thus gain confidence to go on. I base my courses on the four essential competencies: speaking, listening, writing and reading, always focusing on your personal goals and motivation. I progressively integrate phonetics, grammar, conjugation, vocabulary in the courses which always include practical exercises. You will also learn a lot about the culture as it is deeply linked to the language. The pedagogic materials I choose are mostly created for native speakers : texts from literature, newspapers, radio podcasts, videos, songs.... Indeed, I am convinced that the learning process has to tackle « real subjects », as languages are alive and constantly changing. My main challenge is to help the learners to be able to « think » in the second language. The debate is the heart of my classroom, but always in a playful way, through many role games — for me learning a language is first and foremost a great joy !

    Francesco
    Italian / French course: beginner, intermediate, advanced
    Hello everybody! My name is Francesco, I am Italian but I live in France, in Aix-en-Provence, for 3 years. I had my double baccalaureate in French and Italian (Esabac class, Franco-Italian course at the Lycée Dumont d'Urville) last year. Now I'm studying history and philosophy at the University of Aix-Marseille. Since the university leaves us 4 months of vacation during the summer, I decided to land in Amsterdam to find a job but at the same time I am passionate about language exchanges. That's why I offer you two types of courses: - Language Exchange: I can exchange in Italian, French and Spanish. You in the language you want (English, Dutch or others) - Italian and / or French courses: I will be your "teacher". I will help you improve your practical skills step by step. I specify that the word "professor" is ambiguous: it reminds us sometimes of a distant, cold, formal relationship. I would rather become your friend "in languages": this is also the best way to learn a language. Feel comfortable, light, able to overcome the fear of not having full control over our word. Do not hesitate to contact me, together we can discover a little bit these Latin languages ​​so warm and "musical". : D See you soon!!!
