ValentinaLearn Italian from a Roman artist in Rotterdam - order your coffee like a pro
Ciao! I have been teaching Italian for the past ten years. I have taught privately and at language schools like La Scuola Italiana del Greenwich Village in New York and ItalCultura, the school of the Italian Cultural Institute of Chicago. During the first few lessons I will make sure you have the tools to pronounce and identify all the sounds of the Italian language. This step is essential! And it will make everything easier afterwards. When I teach Italian I try to avoid all the things that I hated as a language student. We will use real songs, real literature, do real conversation and storytelling. When you are engaging all your senses it is easier to keep your mind relaxed and to remember new words. I will customize my materials to your interests, needs and desired pace. And because you are learning from a native Italian you will also learn about Italian culture and history. You will absorb a way of thinking, not just grammar rules. I speak a bunch of languages so I know a thing or two about how tedious language classes can be. My terrifying French teacher in middle school made us repeat the same fake dialogue from a really bad book ad nauseam, over and over and over again. Some of those dialogues are carved in my brain: “Bonjour, je m’appelle Richard Drapeau, je viens du Canada, je suis Canadien…” When I teach Italian I try to avoid all the things that I hated as a language student. We will use real songs, real literature, do real conversation and storytelling and we will go on “talking walks” because when you are engaging all your senses it is easier to keep your mind relaxed and to remember new words. I hold a degree in Lingue e Letterature Straniere (Foreign Languages and Literatures) from Università Roma Tre (equivalent to an American MA) and a Master’s of Fine Arts in Interdisciplinary Arts and Media from Columbia College Chicago. I wrote a thesis about translating a long epic poem by W. H. Auden and I tried to ride a horse across America.

FedericaBasic, Pre-Intermediate or Advanced class of Italian
As a native Italian speaker, I would love to help people get to know this language more in depth, and help them with the grammar and pronunciation as well. The class can be either focused on the technical part of the language, or it can be just a way to pratice it by having fun and engaging conversations. It doesn't matter whether you are a beginner or at an advanced level, I can help you in both cases! P.S.: Given the current global situation we are all going through, I offer classes online via Skype or FaceTime (or any other app that you suggest!)
GabrielaENGLISH, ACADEMIC WRITING, POLITICAL SCIENCE AND INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS
Hi there! My name is Gabriela and I am currently pursuing a Master’s degree at Leiden University in The Hague. I have specialized in the field of Political Science, International Relations, International Law and Security Studies. I also provide tutoring in English for academic purposes (including IELTS prep), intensive writing and research methodologies. My purpose is to motivate and help students prepare for their undergraduate studies since high school years are essential for building a solid foundation for the future. I believe that with the right kind of preparation, no subject can be ‘too difficult’. I like seeing students going the extra mile and overcoming obstacles. My teaching method consists of giving students specific guidelines and directions so they can engage in a learning process and become efficient problem solvers themselves. I also provide teaching support for younger students. I have experience working with children aged 7 to 14 years old. Please feel free to contact me if you need any further information.
ArzuRussian language for English speakers: grammar, reading, speaking, writing
I am a native Russian speaker and can teach Russian to English speakers. I can help you to practice grammar, speaking, pronunciation, listening, writing skills. Also can help with learning Russian from the scratch, starting with the alphabet. During my lessons, I primarily teach my students not to be afraid to speak Russian. Before classes, I plan topics on which we can talk to expand our vocabulary, and be able to maintain a conversation on a variety of topics. Also, classes are held in a communication format, so that students learn to understand Russian speech, to be able to ask the questions, reflect on the topic, etc. Depending on the needs of the student, we study the fundamental grammar rules, which are most important for grammatical speech. To consolidate the material, we do various exercises and tests. Usually, these are texts with gaps that need to be filled. We also do oral exercises so that students can apply grammar rules not only in written assignments but also get used to applying them directly in their speech (which is sometimes a problem because we used to forget some rules in our spoken language). Since Russian phonetics is quite complicated, I also select various exercises for diction, adapting them for each student (which is always a lot of fun). I hope to see you on my lessons!

Daniel BossioLearn Spanish / Catalan through your favorite topic
Learning a new language can be bored and disappointing. However, it could be very exciting! Let's do it! We will learn Spanish or Catalan class using music, cinema, Spanish History, Barcelona, Catalunya, football, or basketball as a vehicle of knowledge. Or whatever you need! I prepare the classes in particular to each student, according to the level, the hobbies, and the age, of course. The first class is a kind of interview, with the parents or the student, or both, and it's for knowing ourselves in order to see the options and clarify the purposes and the goals. Enjoy learning Castellano or Català!
RitaFrench talking and reading with vocabulary and grammar lessons
Do you want to learn a new language in a fun and interesting way? Why not french? France is only a few kilometers away from Netherlands ! French is my mother tongue and I have always been fond of learning new languages. I can teach you how to easily and quickly learn french. I master grammar, vocabulary, reading and writing methodologies. As a student myself, I know how hard it may seem to learn a new language. That's why I find interesting to gradually implement new items to the lessons. We can start with listening and studying french videos in order to understand the pronunciation and have a general idea on how to read and enrich your vocabulary. When I feel like you've became more confident, we can start focusing on grammar which is the trickiest part of the french language. I think that we should find pleasure in learning. Adapting my lessons to your necessities is my priority !
PalomaLanguages classes. Italian, Spanish and English at beginner or intermediate level.
I am a native speaker of Italian, and Spanish. Also, I speak English fluently, and I had training on this language my whole life. In these lessons I can teach you the basics necessary for learning any of these languages. In all these languages I can prepare you to face more demanding tasks and levels as well. Given the native speaker status in both Italian and Spanish the strength of my teaching lies there, considering I already gained experience in teaching these languages through this website. The classes will consist of oral, reading and writing parts, covering the language completely. However, this can always be adjusted to your needs.

You can learn Spanish or English from the very beginning: reading listening, speaking, grammar or we can have long conversations about anything you like while improving your speaking skills.
