Reviews (4)

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 was really great with our daughter. She is flexible and really supported our requests. Thanks for the classes Alessandra!

Teaching English/German. School age or professional!
Learn the English language like a true pro. I also am a Fluent German speaker up to Student level I work in the Fashion industry, so i suppose I bring a sense of flair, charisma and creativity along with my teaching. I adapt my teaching to the curriculum presented to me by the student or to the job industry you are in.

Wiskunde bijles voor basischool (rekenen) of middelbare school
Ik ben altijd goed geweest in wiskunde. Ik kan in zowel wiskunde A als B bijles geven, maar ik doe zelf wiskunde B, dus daar ligt wel mijn specialiteit. Ik zal proberen om eerst het probleem waar de leerling moeite mee heeft te identificeren en vervolgens zal ik door middel van uitleg en het gezamenlijk maken van moeilijke sommen de leerling het laten begrijpen.

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.

English for professionals (refresher, fluency, conversation ...)
I offer you my services to make you truly performant oral / written in English. If you must use English as part of your professional activity and you do not feel comfortable ... If you're tired of being spotted right away like French ... If you do not know still not when to use the present perfect / the preterite .... I am here to help you. * Training linguist and author of textbook as such. => I am not a student in L1 who had a good grade in the Baccalaureate. I am a practicing, qualified teacher and holder of National Education. Teaching can not be improvised. This is something I feel I do well with 23 years of experience. I remind parents that to have 10/20 to the Baccalaureate, just have the level A2 (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd) so I let you imagine the despair of engineering students who must get at least 750 to the TOEIC! It's the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course gives rise to a detailed report. * In-depth knowledge of the European Framework. (A1 => C2) * Work of language activities. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, links ... The grammar of the oral. * Adaptation to all levels: => College - High school: beginner, false beginner ... => Post-baccalaureate: TOEIC preparation, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Oral and writings of the grandes écoles such as ENA => Oral and written business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...) => Engineering school: preparation for TOIEC.

Jack
Learn English for all levels of experience from 'Hello' to 'Goodbye' and everything in-between
Hello, my name is Jack, a native English speaker originally from Manchester, England. I have experience teaching English as a second language both online to students in China.And in schools in Italy. I have a diploma in International Business Management from Northumbria University, and studied abroad in Sweden and Portugal and therefore know how important and daunting learning a language can be. I specialise in teaching English as a second language. My aim is to be the lessons fun and engaging. Depending on what you want to learn we can focus on grammar, sentence structure, building vocabulary of a particular topic or start at the basics learning phonics. If you would like support and tutoring on homework or topics you are studying in school I can support students with this and help them achieve in school. I can also teach Business English and help you prepare for a presentation or interview or help with your studies. My class would be perfect for either adults or children wanting to improve their oral and written English skills. Each class will be personalised to your needs and abilities with the first class used to evaluate your level and how we can best use further classes to improve your abilities and see results.

Mathematics tutoring from secondary school up to Master by French Master
I am offering my help in tutoring you for all level and age, up to the level Master. I am giving several kind of classes: -classes on a regular basis, to keep up with a certain level -intense classes (over several days/weeks) where the goal is to get ready for an exam or finish up a project. -classes to smooth the integration to higher education (university etc...). My main goal is to guide the student by offering theoretical classes but also practical exercises. I like to emphasize on concrete example since, for many people, mathematics is very abstract and too much about theory. I can also provide help for PHD/Master students having data analysis to perform for their thesis. I can give help for any domain in mathematics: algebra, analysis, statistics, algorithm, logic etc... Please do not hesitate to contact me for further detail.

Improve your English (for students and adults) by SKYPE
My course is for anyone who wants to improve their level of English. I am learning several foreign languages myself and I have level C1 in English. I am currently a student in St Andrews, Scotland. I can therefore help the student to gain self-confidence, whether orally or in writing in order to get started in English, which is an important language to acquire. I organize my lessons in a fun way, working on grammar but also texts, videos to better understand English culture! I can also help students preparing for exams (TOEIC, TOEFL etc.) by training them and helping them on difficult points. For more information, do not hesitate to contact me!

Sobia
Private tutoring Math for all education levels (GCSE,O/A-level, IB MYP/DP, etc)
I offer lessons in Maths and since 2018 I have been tutoring 20 students on a weekly base. Since 2019 I am teaching maths at the International School of The Hague as well. I've spent a large amount of time teaching/assisting my fellow students and children (up to Graduate level) basic and advanced mathematics as well as physics. I have great experience in tutoring several students of the International of The Hague and the British school (both primary and secondary) following the IB, EB, British curriculum (GCSE, O-level, A-level). I have completed my Bsc degree in double maths and physics and hold a Msc in Mathematics (with a CGPA of 3.91 out of 4.0) . After completing my studies I have held a tutoring academy for short period after which I moved to The Netherlands. I don’t use standard programs or lessons. Instead, I create lessons based on the student's needs and interests. If needed I will hand out exercises to be done at home and some notes on the lesson. The main thing the students have to see is that they are capable of solving a problem and that they can have fun whilst doing so.
