Former Teacher. Primary/Secondary School Tutoring / ESL, Essay editing, etc.

Having moved around quite a bit, I understand the stress students undergo adapting to new schooling systems. I enjoy working privately with students to build their confidence. I previously was a primary school teacher of all subjects (Grades 1&2) for a private international school in Dubai. I am familiar with international school curriculum ad challenges faced by students when moving to a new country. I have extensive experience with students of all learning levels. I have been privately tutoring for over 8 years now. English is my first language (I am American). I also have experience tutoring at a higher age (as well as university level). I am an excellent writer and editor and have experience editing research. I am currently doing my own research at UVA. I did my undergraduate at UCLA. I am patient and attentive. I have an open schedule.

I also have years of experience with ESL and have taken multiple courses training myself in the best ways to tutor in ESL. I am happy to teach all ages.

Reviews (6)

Alessandra is very knowledgeable about multiple curriculums and my son really enjoyed working with her!!
We had our first session a few days ago, with Alessandra tutoring my 8 year old son and 5 year old daughter, developing their reading and writing in English and their mathematics. Alessandra's previous experience as a teacher certainly shines through, as she definitely seems to know how children of this age learn. She provided original and exciting activities for the kids and they found it great fun; they are looking forward to seeing her again next week. Alessandra was professional to work with and I can definitely recommend her.
She is just great!! My son and wife love her way of teaching. She also has great personality.
Having a teaching background has really made Alessandra the perfect tutor for our son. He loves his lessons with Alessandra, and we can already see he is improving. Highly recommend Alessandra!
Alessandra is a good teacher and we are very happy with the progress.

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.

Gabrielė
English Class to improve your Conversational skills
I am an expat in the Netherlands, with a bachelor’s degree from Honours College in University College Utrecht in Psychology and Neuroscience as well as Linguistics and now doing my Master’s in Artificial Intelligence! I have lived in many different places while growing up, thus it helped me master my English skills to a native level. I would love to help you improve your language skills - by improving your reading and conversational as well as written English.

Samuel
English language courses - CELTA qualified - English native speaker (Irish origin)
My name is Sam and i'm a 28 year old Irish man living in Amsterdam! I have a CELTA certificate in English teaching and over three years of experience giving courses online and privately, both to individual students and groups. My students have been both beginners and advanced learners, with very different reasons for learning the language! I also have a speaking level of the French language! To begin, we can find your needs and objectives for learning English and from there we can progress in our work together! I have a degree in Criminal Justice studies and another diploma in Social studies, so if you're needs are specific to law/humanities I can meet any needs - I have also taught tech English and business English with many of my students. Personally, I am a writer, currently working on my first book I hope to publish! I love creativity and anything to do with languages, which helps me to create courses that are interesting for any student - I have a patient, kind and understanding approach to learning English that helps my students to feel relaxed enough to make those extra steps necessary to improve! If you are interested, send me a message and we can discuss your needs and see if we would be a good team together! I

Fatima
Math and /or French classes for school/Unviversity students and adults. Skills development for individual needs.
I am a Particle Physics Master Student at the University of Amsterdam. I have been giving private Math and French for more than 8 years. I believe that mastering math logic and a foreign language offer so many opportunities to anyone who is willing to put in the effort. I love the challenge of adjusting my methodology to the student's needs. I already have regular students I have been helping for years now and would love to enlarge my cirlce. MATH: 1- developing logical think and independent learning. I believe my job is done best when the student does not need me after 3 classes. 2- developing abstract thinking and application skills I believe that understanding how to use mathematical tools is beneficial for any field. FRENCH: 1- Learning in context 2- Combining formal and casual use of the language. 3- Activating passive knowledge and deepening the knowledge of the language by learning how to express emotions, using expressions, and understanding humor that is specific to the language.

Eyre
English Tutor; Adult English; All primary subjects tutored in English;
After five years of teaching at international schools as the homeroom teacher, I understand how the school subjests are organized and the tests SAT, GED, GRE, and GMAT exams are focused. I hope to create a classroom for the students to explore and discover the world around them. Whether it's science, math, or music, the students will learn through the channel of English. Experiments, discussions and art-work are involved in the class while the subject goals assigned from the school are reached at the same time. English is more than a language skill to master, but a media to all the knowledge the world has to offer.
