    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.

    Extra information

    Please bring a pen and notebook, or a laptop if you have one. If you'd like, you can send me an example of your writing ahead of our first meeting: that way, I can identify any areas for improvement and prepare lessons beforehand.

    About Me

    Hello! I'm an American living in Leiden with my fiancée. For work, I write feature film scripts for a production company in Manhattan. When I'm not doing that I'm usually reading a good book, watching my favorite baseball team, going on a run, making music on my laptop, enjoying a picnic in the park, visiting a museum, or just spending an evening with friends. Still, there's so much of this wonderful country I haven't seen yet — every day is an adventure, and I can't wait to see what the future has in store!

    Italian language: grammar and conversational skills
    As an Italian native speaker, I would like to focus not only on grammar and formal aspects of the language, but also on the cultural context in which phrases are used and coversation. My classes will be flexible and adaptable to the student's needs.

    Anna
    Italian Grammar and Literature. English Grammar and conversation
    I am an Italian native speaker with a bachelor in Italian Literature and Linguistics. In Italy, I usually teach English to high school students​, or adults who want to improve their skills with this language. 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.

    Hannah
    Native, certified English teacher offering in-person and virtual classes
    Hello, my name is Hannah and I'm a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language)-certified teacher. No matter how hard I try, I keep coming back to languages. Although I have a master's in public health and have a variety of professional experiences, languages have always been my true passion. From my bachelor's degree in French to the time I spent teaching English in Argentina, to my TEFL certification in Chicago, to the time I spent teaching English in Germany, to my current home in the Netherlands, I have always been motivated by learning foreign languages and speaking them with native speakers. Although I have had many positions as a teacher, mentor, and tutor, I decided to return to teaching about two years ago after spending time in a corporate job and have been teaching full-time since. I am very happy with my decision and hope to continue passing on my love of languages to my students for years to come. As a student of foreign language learning myself, I know which strategies work and which don't. I believe that all students should feel comfortable in the classroom and shouldn't be afraid to make mistakes, because that's the best way to learn! I encourage exploration while also having a solid knowledge of the language background of my students to aid in times of confusion. I have seen first-hand the value of having a native teacher for language courses, and through taking courses on my own, know what works and doesn't work for students.

    Personalised English Language Classes - Because You're Worth It
    These one-to-one classes are for anybody who wishes to improve their knowledge of the English language. Each class will use grammar, pronunciation and vocabulary exercises to develop speaking, reading, listening and reading skills. The first class will serve to identify in which specific areas the student requires the most practice and the subsequent classes will be designed and personalised accordingly. Students receive a personalised progress goal chart that maps progress over time. The chart will be referred to over the duration of the course to check and ensure that the language level targets have been met.

    English lessons for beginners and those who want to improve, young or old
    English is a world language. You can go almost everywhere with English. That is why it is important that you have some command of English and that you can make yourself understood. And that is what I am for, helping people, young or old, to learn English or improve their English. Method: First I make an assessment of aptitude for, and existing knowledge of, English for each student. During teaching I find the following elements important: 1. Creating a friendly and pleasant atmosphere in which the student starts to feel enthusiastic. 2. Discipline. This means that the course leader and the student (s) do what is expected of them. 3. From simple to complicated, tailored to the aptitude and experience of the student (s). 4. Practicing a lot and repeating previous lessons. 5. Structured work. This mainly means working on the grammar of English because grammar gives structure to a language. 6. Regular keys.

    Alessandro
    Italian linguist from Leiden university offers Italian lesson including personal homework, personalized lessons of grammar and conversation
    The difference between a self-learning book and an experienced teacher with a linguistics background is that a book will teach you to understand a specific set of sentences, while after 10 lessons with me you will be able to understand and CREATE new sentences. The focus is on both sets on grammar and on oral comprehension. My advice is therefore to organize a lesson of 90 minutes in which 30 minutes will be dedicated to: - Grammar (how the Italian language works and how to translate) - Reading and listening (comprehension) - Talking (production), with me or other students. My charge will also include: - Weekly homework (if requested) - Lessons prepared on the specific needs of the students - Assistance 24/h about any questions you might have on Italian (and Italy!)
