Be taught in Dutch speaking, grammar and spelling exercises and writing.

This class, specifically, is for people who are not native Dutch speakers and wish to sharpen their skills. The level you are on now does not matter, if anything, the less you know the more room there is for improvement!

I have been tutoring and teaching Dutch for quite some time and have therefore gained a significant amount of experience. I am very much willing to take the time and make you grow step by step. Or, if by any chance, you need one-time help with for example an assignment then this is fine too!

Extra information

It is preferred if you have your own textbooks to work with and go by, but if not then this should not be a huge issue.

About Me

Hello there! I am an International Relations student born in the Netherlands. Currently I live in Leiden and am very much willing to bike back and forth to your place in order to tutor you - I'd do this with great pleasure! In order to gain experience in teaching and in doing so talk about my passions, I am very much excited over the possibility to teach you.

I happen to know English fluently and I was born and raised with Dutch. History is by far my biggest passion and I study it with great love. Despite this, I know how tough those exams can be! I am fully willing to adapt to your style of learning and going with it because after all, a style of learning must be learnt but cannot be forced on someone. Because of that I will challenge you, but only in the form that suits with you.

I have studied law in Groningen for a year and am currently pursuing a Bachelor Degree at Leiden University.

Joost is a very patient and knowledgeable teacher, he has been helping me practicing my dutch! Always on time.
Joost is punctual, well mannered and knowledgeable. He is patient and has adapted the lesson to my son's specific need. He is doing a great job.
History and politics have always been a passion of mine and I am very much willing to teach anyone who desires any tutoring. At times it can be very difficult and overwhelming if you need to make an exam or write an essay - I can be there to help in case you need guidance! The goal here would be to make you understand history better, organize patterns in your head and possibly make you love the subject! This should definitely help in either expanding your worldview, or enhancing your history grades. I am willing to teach history (or politics/maatschappijleer) in Dutch or English. I have little preference in regard to eras or themes in history, but if you must know I especially enjoy political and military macro-history. The grand patterns throughout history fascinate me, with of course, attention to large events. No era or area is particularly strange to me, again, being able to process history is the goal here! The grand goal is to get a basic, intermediate or advanced understanding in one of the subjects. I could, possibly, rehearse with you and ask you how fluent you are in the topics at hand. I am fully willing to adapt to the student his or her academic needs. In case you wish me to help you in structuring or writing a history essay, then this, too is no problem!

Improve your Dutch - Improve your Dutch! Adapted to your wishes. Tailored to your needs.
I like to keep it varied - a fun lesson but with loads of grammar improvement, vocabulary but also games to consolidate these. Lessons are tailor-made to what you want. I use several books and methods to make your lesson topnotch. I teach online via Zoom or here in my home. Every lesson I sent all details home so you can revise what we have done and you can see your homework. I am a Certified Teacher of Dutch as an Additional Language and I have a University Degree in teaching Dutch Language and Literature from Leiden University. I have specialized in teaching Dutch as a Second Language at Hogeschool Amsterdam. I have lived abroad for 17 years so know a lot of living abroad. Having been an expatriate myself I like teaching people from other cultures. I speak good English and have some understanding of German, French and Spanish. I have been teaching Dutch since 1995 in the States - in Iowa - and since 2016 in Leiden - when I came back from living in Scotland, South East Asia and the States - in my own little company Doses of Dutch. Since 2019 I teach two groups of students in Wassenaar for four mornings a week as well. Usually people buy a package of ten lessons. For some children an hour long lesson is too long and they have 45 minute lessons.

Vuoi parlare l'italiano? Italiano con Rob per tutti
Ciao, my name is Roberto :) 
I graduated in Political and Economic Science at the University of Milan. After working for a year for an American company in Milan, I moved to Australia, where I have worked, studied and traveled for two years.
It has been an incredible experience! I had the opportunity of visiting beautiful places, discovering so many different cultures and developed myself from a personal and professional point of view.
Since two years, I have been living in Haarlem - a wonderful city close to Amsterdam - and to the coast 🌊 - in the Netherlands. I love teaching and helping people to find out more about Italian culture, history, and arts. I would love to use all the modern techniques of teaching that I learned and practiced them with you. Teaching is an extraordinary passion! Parliamo italiano!

Ugne
English (grammar/pronunciation/spelling) help for adults and children
Hi, My name is Ugnė and I am a 20-year-old student. I speak fluent English, Lithuanian, and German. I was born in Lithuania, completed primary school in Austria, did the Middle Years Program in Lithuania at an international school, received my International Baccalaureate Diploma in Denmark, and currently, I am doing my bachelors in Psychology here in the Netherlands at Leiden University. From the age of 10, I have only attended English-speaking schools as well as completed various education programs in English. I am able to teach using only English, German, or Lithuanian. I am willing to assist both adults and children (such as doing homework). My approach with tutoring is very enthusiastic, encouraging, and friendly as teaching should be enjoyable for the student. I also have babysitting experiences and experiences working with young children particularly with special needs.

Margherita
Italian language from conversation to certification
What best than learning Italian from a native speaker? I am an Italian living in Leiden since 2014. I have a solid gramatic preparation and like to talk of the most disparate subjects. I can help you preparing for your certification as well as improving your pronunciation and your written and oral production

English Tutoring by a Professional American Writer (Written/Verbal)
I'm a published poet and screenwriter from the U.S., with 3+ years of editorial and tutorial experience, ready and able to help you achieve your English-language goals and tasks. I'm happy to help with upcoming school assignments or give you some of my own, along with lessons that are tailored to fit your needs. My specialty is in writing and grammar, but we can also work on spoken English to sharpen your oral communication skills. English can be difficult, idiomatic, and downright bizarre — with my help, you can demystify and master this useful language! For students and adults in the general Leiden area.

Wanna improve your Italian speaking and grammar skills?
Hello everyone! I'm an Italian expat studying international relations at Leiden University. Back in Italy I used to give English classes to students in need, and I also worked for a while for an association where I taught Italian to African immigrants. Here in Leiden I would like to teach Italian to people who don't only want to improve their grammar skills, but also their conversation skills.

Ludovica
Italian classes for all ages with Italian speaker, experienced teacher. Also available for conversation and test preparation tutoring.
I am an Italian international law graduate based in Leiden. I have a DILIT diploma to teach Italian to foreigners, meaning that I prefer to use a non-academic approach to teach the Italian language. I have over 5 years experience in teaching and tutoring. I usually teach my classes in Italian, but I can also speak English and Spanish. We will discuss the goals to achieve during the course, based on your wishes and interests, and we will decide together what kind of methodology is the best suited for you!

Maria
English lessons with experienced and qualified native speaker.
I am a native English speaker from Ireland currently studying MSc Psychology at Leiden University. I received a grade A1 in my Leaving Certificate English studies and my BA degree includes a specialisation in English. I also have experience teaching English as a second language in both Spain and Zambia. I am available for lessons after lectures and during weekends. The lessons can be held in a location that suits you or via Skype, etc. if necessary. These lessons can be for students of any level who want extra support in English acquisition or improvement. As the student you can choose which areas you would most like to focus on and I can structure the lessons with this in mind. This can include areas such as grammar, conversation, vocabulary, and much more. We can discuss together how best I can help you to improve your language skills based on your needs, for example through help with homework or setting additional homework. If the hours shown do not suit you let me know as my lecture hours vary slightly each week and I may be able to fit you in. If you have any questions at all don't hesitate to message me.

Interactive Italian Classes with Native Speaker - All Age Groups
Tired of your italian friends mocking you for your "bad" cooking skills? Bored of using the same old italian phrases while on vacation? Want to give your second-generation kids the chance to fluently communicate with their grandparents? This class is for you, and for whoever fell in love with italian culture and its chaotic people. We will address all language skills (speaking, writing, listening and reading) in a relaxed one-to-one environment, while alternating the necessary grammar and vocabulary learning with language games, music and interactive discussions on news. My class will be held in Italian and English, and it will be tailored to the needs of the student. Assignments will be given after every class.

An enthusiastic and motivated individual who is committed to work hard using her excellent communication skills and determination as well as initiative, that will allow her to prosper further in order to succeed. I aim to work hard and overcome any obstacles. This class is designed for students who would like to refine their English skills as a second language and their basic math skills. We will work through exercises and allow time for understanding before attempting them independently.

Chloé
French Lessons (Grammar, Vocabulary, Reading, Pronunciation, Spelling, Writing)
As a French native speaker, I would be happy to help young pupils and students with learning and practicing French. This class is best suited for students who have a beginner or intermediate level of French and may encounter difficulties with French grammar, vocabulary, writing, reading, spelling, or pronunciation. I have specialized in French literature in secondary school, therefore I can also help students with the methodology and structure of writing essays in French. For each class, I will prepare exercises (which will vary from student to student depending on their needs) and during each lesson we will complete the exercises together and work on the mistakes. If needed, I will also assign homework. My goal is to teach French in an interactive, engaging, and stimulating manner to make sure that it is both enjoyable and enriching for the student. Furthermore, it is important for me to assess the student's needs and provide him/her/they with the most adapted learning methods which will allow me to address the student's shortcomings in the best possible manner.

Rianne

I teach Dutch from beginners to advanced, in private lessons or in small groups. My name is Rianne and I'm the teacher. Do you want to learn Dutch, contact me! Tot gauw! (See you soon)

Denise
English, Spanish and Catalan lessons (native speaker)
I am fluent in English and Spanish and Catalan are my native languages. I don't speak Dutch, so my classes would be 100% in the language we are studying. I have been tutoring in Spain for 2 years. I have helped people with English exams (FCE), with school exams and also helping kids with their homework. Let me know if you have any question!:)
