Katie
Math, English, and Test Preparation - In-person or Online
With 6 years of tutoring experience in Math and English, I absolutely love working with students of all ages. I strive to get all students to gain confidence and self-esteem during my session. I think this allows for a better learning environment and creates a place where students can problem solve and critically think about different concepts! I create engaged lessons, activities, and games so students are able to learn each concept or idea in an interactive and different way! I have experience in all levels of math up to Calculus 2 and test preparation experience, including the SAT, AP, and ACT. English experience in elementary and middle school. Knowledge of IB school curriculum too!

Eduard
Violin lessons - Suzuki method (from 4 years old).
The Suzuki Method was created by the Japanese violinist Shinichi Suzuki. It is internationally used to teach music to children from age 3. It is based on the idea that if any child can speak his mother tongue perfectly he can also develop his musical talent when he has a supportive environment. Therefore the pupil's parents are actively involved in the learning process attending the lessons and helping their child in daily home practice. Under Suzuki's Philosophy, learning how to play an instrument is much more than acquiring music knowledge. It is about learning values and long life skills that will help children to develop their full potential. Therefore, parents, pupils and teachers enjoy together this fascinating trip from the first stages. The teacher - Eduard. I'm a freelance violinist based in Amsterdam playing in different orchestras and chamber music groups. It is my passion to share with my students and parents the joy of making music and learning and instrument. For me playing an instrument it is much more than just that: it is a way to develop ourselves as a person. It is my intention to create a Violin class with a high standard in a great musical environment. The commitment for daily practice is the only requirement to become my student. I perform often for children like in Teatro Munganga and Amsterdam Baby Concerts. I studied violin in the Conservatories of Barcelona and Utrecht and the Suzuki Method at the Accademia Filarmonica in Utrecht. I am currently following a Postgraduate about the Suzuki Method in the Conservatory of Antwerpen and researching how the principles of thw Alexander Technique can be applied to a violin lesson from the early beggining. I'm also specialized in body and mind work for musicians(as Alexander technique teacher).I'm a member of the Suzuki Vereniging Nederland.

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.

Konstantinos
Ancient/Modern Greek Private Lessons
Teaching Ancient and Modern Greek, as a foreign language, had been my passion for almost 9 years now. Greek Philology was my BA, and I am currently graduating from my Research Master Program in Indo-European and Comparative Linguistics from the VU University Amsterdam.

Laura
French class for children and adults
Young graduate in strategic intelligence, I recently moved to Amsterdam and would like to help people learn my (sometimes difficult) language. I already gave French classes to children when I was leaving in Shanghai. Don't hesitate to contact me to exchange about the class and your expectations.

Niki
Modern Greek from a native speaker; learn the basics in a month!
Modern Greek in a fun and efficient way! Do you want to challenge yourself and learn Greek? Why not give it a try! Maybe it is not that hard like it sounds! :) Are you maybe going on vacation and you are interested in learning Greek? I can offer you lessons focusing on the everyday expressions.

Lara
French lessons
If you want your kid to learn the basics of the French language, and to develop it over time, I can offer my services as a nice and patient tutor once or twice a week. We will work on writing, as well as speaking. I will teach your child the basics of vocabulary and grammar, that we will develop little by little to form a solid basis for the future. The classes will be fun and interactive and I will assign small homework assignments to allow them to develop their skills independently. My name is Lara, I was born in Paris and I've been living in Amsterdam for two months. After I finished my studies in Paris (Media & Cultural studies), I decided to move to Amsterdam, because it is not only a city that I love but also one in which there are endless diverse cultural opportunities to discover. I love kids, I've been working with children for six years, and I would be happy to teach French to your children !

Nuria
Flute lessons for all levels (Classical repertoire, all periods)
Hello! My name is Nuria and I am currently finishing my Masters in Classical Flute in the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. I offer flute lessons to students of all levels and ages, from begginers to people who are planning to audition in music schools or orchestras. The lessons are in English or Spanish (Dutch lessons coming very soon). My schedules are very flexible, so we can plan the lessons every time if that suits you better. As a flute teacher I have several years of experience, and teaching is one of my passions, since I always find a source of inspiration and knowledge in every student I have. My lessons do not only have a technical approach: besides, they constitute a continuous search of the best way to give musical expression to our flute performance. Our main goal is artistic, we must not forget this! The repertoire to work on covers all the periods of Classical Music history, from 17th Century to our days. We will work individually, so the lessons are adapted to each student's progress and character. But music is a social activity, and this means that concerts will be organized, and we will eventually work on chamber music together!
