High School and University English: Improving your Writing and Speaking

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Whether you or your child is a high school student looking to improve on their English homework, a university student struggling with academic writing standards, or an adult looking to communicate more fluently, I can help you better develop your English writing and speaking. This can include:
* Essay revision
* Speaking practice
* Grammar and syntax lessons
* Working with English literature or academic analysis.

Please check out my profile for my qualifications and experience, and message with any questions or requests! I will come to your home, work online, or work in a cafe or university space...however you desire!

Unfortunately I don't speak Dutch, but can work on more basic levels with Spanish speakers.

The website does not let me not select "Dutch" as a lesson of instruction, but unfortunately my level of Dutch is quite low, and lessons would be in English. (We can discuss about possibilities of teaching in Spanish)

About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Hi, my name is Alec, I am 21 years old, from the United States, and a Masters Student in Spatial Science at the RUG. I would love to help your child or yourself improve in English language and writing.

In addition to being a native speaker and graduate of the RUG Bachelor's Honors College, I have several years of experience in teaching and working with both children and teens.

For over a year and a half I have taught a class for the University Honors College on public speaking and debate. I received this job because I was chairman of Groningen's student debate club. Over a 6 week period, I work with a group of students, many of whom arrived nervous and shy, and helped them develop their persuasion skills in an environment which was engaging, productive, and fun. Every block I have received positive reviews from students, and have grown adept at patiently helping people develop their English communication.

Furthermore, I have 4 years of experience working with children ages 11-15 as a counselor at an American sleepaway summer camp. In this role, I developed and ran activities, provided emotional support and counseling, and ensured wellbeing for groups. I am good at talking to, and working with, children in a way which helps them develop and feel comfortable without feeling stupid.

Finally, regarding written English, I have high marks in several classes on academic writing, such as "English for Academic Writing", "Introduction to Academic Research", and "Methods of Academic Research". In any group project I am the chief writer, and among my friends I am the go-to editor. In high school, I entered a New York Times student editorial contest, and out of 1000s of submissions, I was one of 10 published on the newspaper's website.

Ultimately, I am a highly proficient writer and speaker of English, who has experience teaching in an engaging way, and working with both children and university students. I look forward to working with you to develop a curriculum based on you or your child's needs.

English lessons, language tutoring and conversation
Hi, my name is Sophie, I am a recent graduate in International and European law at the University of Groningen and language tutor in my free time. My mother tongue is German, but I speak English fluently due to my work, studies and life abroad. I would like to help you improve your conversational English, writing, grammar & co. My whole school career I focused on learning languages and as language student I know what difficulties one faces, therefore I can give plenty of study tips and grammar advice. I have five years of experience working with children from 6-12 years old and love to help them understand new things in a playful but efficient manner. I have experience in homework supervision and day care but also teach adults for a while now. *** Hallo, ich heiße Sophie, ich studiere internationales Rechts an der Universität Groningen und gebe neben meinem Studium regelmäßig Sprachunterricht. Meine Muttersprache ist Deutsch und da ich seit vier Jahren im Ausland lebe, spreche ich auch fließend Englisch. Ich würde dir gerne dabei helfen, dein Englisch, Sprechen, Schreiben, Grammatik & Co zu verbessern. Meine gesamte Schullaufbahn habe ich mich mit dem Erlernen von Sprachen beschäftigt und als Sprachschülerin weiß ich, mit welchen Schwierigkeiten man dabei konfrontiert wird, deshalb kann ich viele Lerntipps und Tricks geben. Ich habe fünf Jahre Erfahrung in der Arbeit mit Kindern im Alter von 6-12 Jahren und liebe es, ihnen auf spielerische, aber effiziente Art und Weise zu helfen, neue Dinge zu verstehen. Ich habe außerdem Erfahrung in der Hausaufgabenbetreuung und Tagespflege, unterrichte aber nun seit einiger Zeit auch Erwachsene. Ich freue mich schon auf ein gemeinsames Lernen!

Paola
Italian, English and Spanish Tutoring for those interested in starting or improving one of these beautiful languages
I am Paola, Italian girl of 23 years old, currently studying as a Master's student at RUG. I am very willing to help those interested in learning or improving their Italian, English, or Spanish, through targeted lessons that can fit every individual starting or continuing one of these two languages. The focus of the classes will be on the grammar, vocabulary, but also on the speaking and writing abilities of the student in the taught language.

Michal
English writing and speaking support for all levels.
I am very good at problem solving. Therefore this class is about the individual student and giving them the support they need to improve and succeed. This will be less of a class and more of a personalised private tutor format whereby I will assist students with whatever current problems they face. It can range from teaching better essay writing skills or how to be a better public speaker. Depending on the needs of the student I will adjust my teaching accordingly. If the student needs assistance with a particular homework assignment I will help them through it. I aim to create a nurturing and comfortable environment for my students, I believe students have enough stress understanding all their current work and I do not want to pile on more. Therefore the class is not about giving homework and completing tasks as it is to create real and systemic improvement in the student and their confidence in the subject.
