Learn the Right Kind of Language Skills to Pass IELTS/ CAE Exam
English is a key to some of the best universities in the world. Do you want to have the opportunity to access the top universities? Yes? Then you definitely need to speak English. During the exam preparation course you will use real-life language, tasks and topics. This means that, in addition to developing real-life English language communication skills, you will develop a range of practical academic skills. For example, you will develop the skills to: - give clear presentations; - write essays with a good organizational structure and supporting conclusions; - read quickly enough to cope with the demands of academic textbooks and grasp the main topics and ideas; - follow lectures and ask detailed questions.

Oxbridge Applications (University applications to Oxford and Cambridge)
Oxford and Cambridge are the UK’s most elite universities and, especially for a European student, far easier to reach with the proper support. This is what I am here to provide: help writing an ideal personal statement fit for a future Oxbridge offer holder, aid with UCAS, interview practice and advice on any possible question you could have. As a European Oxford student myself, I know the challenges and hardships of an Oxbridge application and aim to make the entire process easier for you. This will not only better your chances of securing an offer, but also make this already stressful time a bit less confusing.

Learn Italian (with a native Italian) having fun through Music and Food!
This class is for aspiring Italian learners! The easiest way to learn a language is through simple everyday things and having fun! You will learn the Italian language not with boring grammar books but with very Italian hobbies and traditions as Music and Food! Don't worry if you are an absolute beginner, because if you like to listen to Italian music and love Italian food (maybe cooking it also!) you are halfway! With this fun method, you will learn a lot of new words and phrases that the grammar will flow itself, and, of course, I will be there to help you!

Claudia
Learn Italian with a real Italian (also for beginners)
I am an Italian native speaker with a background in design. Usually, I tend to use a non-academic approach, by focusing on the student's interests and make him/her applying the language to their everyday life, instead of simply learning the grammar rules by heart. In my opinion, learning a new language should be fun and easy, nothing too stressful. What you will get from is a new positive and funny way to learn a foreign language such as Italian or English.

I am a qualified, experienced and creative UK teacher (Bachelor of Education) with a Certificate in Filmmaking and Animation. I have been an International teacher for the last fifteen years, working in Spain, Thailand, Prague and now The Hague. Literacy is not just about the written word.

Children will learn authentic filmmaking skills and techniques. These will be embedded within a scheme of work using a creative and thematic approach with Film, Art and Literacy at its core. Children will have the opportunity to critique, review and make films and will learn about the five stages of developing, planning, producing and exhibiting a movie. They will learn about: Basic Equipment Needs*Storyboarding and Screenwriting* iPad and Video Camera Training* Acting* Animation*Directing* Sound, Lighting and Editing Techniques*Set Construction and Props*Makeup and Hair*Costuming*The Shoot* Publicity*Marketing our Movie*The Premiere*

Théo
English class with a native speaker
I am a French and English tutor. I was born and raised in France. However, I lived in England for 3 years and therefore I am fluent in English. Furthermore, in England I studied law and therefore I have a solid knowledge of legal English that allows me to share my knowledge with my students. I believe it is the best way to learn and practice it, orally, through formal or informal conversations and then balancing this practice with one's writing skills. My classes are quite dynamic and I am very flexible and can adapt to the student's needs.As well as fluent in English, the classes can be taught in English. I also provide support for any homework or tasks as requested by the student.

Individual or Small Group Lessons to Learn French (all levels) + Conversation classes + Literary club
IMMERSIVE FRENCH COURSES / PERSONALIZED INSTRUCTION - I offer attentive and demanding teaching, but I am convinced that this is only really possible in a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere - you learn better when you dare to make mistakes! - I do not believe that there is a single method or textbook suitable for everyone. Hence the importance for me of always getting to know my students in order to build an effective progression. - I systematically tailor my lessons to the particular needs of each student, depending of course on his or her abilities but also on his or her favorite subjects. - I ask the students to do exercises (lexical or grammatical) at home after each lesson, in electronic (pdf) or paper format. We systematically correct them at the beginning of each class. - The dialogue between the students and the teacher is very important. Not a lesson goes by without them talking about life and the events in the news... - I prepare for examinations (DL, DELF/DALF, TEF, TCF, CCIP, TELC, CIEP, LPE...) (La Parenthèse - French Language School - The Hague)

English lessons and tutoring
I offer English courses for a diverse range of levels. Are you a beginner, intermediate, or do you want to prepare for an exam? My goal is to help you improve your level of English. I am French, and have followed my high school course and my license in English. So I have an excellent academic level, and can help you practice in conversation, or in a context more framed with exercises. I offer English lessons for a wide range of levels: whether beginner or intermediate, my aim is to help you improve your spoken and written English. I am French, and have completed my high-school and bachelor degree in English. I therefore have an excellent academic level, and can help you practice in conversational-context, or in a strict framework with exercises. I also offer homework help for primary and middle school students. I clarify the lesson, repeat it with the student, and help him complete his homework. I have a good academic background, and have offered support courses before. I also offer help with homework for primary and middle school children. I go over the lesson with the pupil, and help with homework. I have a good academic record, and have already offered tutoring before.

Laura
SPAANS LEREN! Native spanish speaker teacher with certification by Instituto Cervantes and more than 4 years of experience in teaching
I am Laura Pérez, a Spanish living in The Hague. I have been teaching and helping other high school students with their homework and study methods since 2014 as a private tutor. The last year I got hired as a English teacher in two different schools in Madrid (extracurricular activities) where I developped my teaching skills with children between 3 and 10 years old. I studied Nutrition and Dietetics (4 years bachelor)at Complutense University of Madrid. Depending on the goal, the learning or lesson method is different. Normally, the first day I meet the student and we talk about what he or she expects and the topics we need to pay more attention. From that, I organise and structured plan for reaching the desired goals (talking, listening, speaking, writing, etc) or level (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2).

Marcel

This class is aimed for anyone who is interested in learning Spanish or Catalan.

If you would like to on a trip to a Spanish-speaking country or you are planning to go to study or work there, if you are interested in Catalan culture and its language... you are more than welcomed! Learning a foreign language is always a challenge, but an exciting one, and together we can enjoy it! I'm a bilingual native speaker of Spanish and Catalan, with some experience teaching the language to foreigners when I was living in Barcelona (before I moved to The Hague), and also giving private lessons to high school students.
