Improve your English Language with an experienced native speaker!

I have taught and tutored English as an additional language for over five years, both face to face and online. I would be delighted to help English speakers of all abilities improve their writing, speaking, reading, and listening. I will always work at a student's pace, while ensuring they are constantly challenged. Learning a new language should be an exciting process, and I will, above all, aim to make sure this is the case.

About Me

I'm an experienced teacher of English, with over five years teaching experience across the world. I have also trained new teachers of English. I have a PGCE, specialising in teaching English as an Additional Language. I believe in an immersive approach to language learning, which is great, because it lets me share with my students some of the things that I love!

Education

PGCE, Rhodes University, With Distinction
MA in English Literature and Culture, University of Amsterdam, 73%
BA in English and Creative Writing, Manchester Metropolitan University, 2:1

Experience / Qualifications

Five years teaching and tutoring experience, alongside my PGCE. I have taught UK GCSE and A-Level, the South African National Curriculum, and some IB.
This class will focus on practical ways to improve your creative writing, whether you write prose, poetry, or drama. We will workshop your writing, focusing on, amongst other topics, characterisation, plot, form, dialogue, word choice, and clutter. I'll make some of my own recommendations based on my experience tutoring creative writing, and suggest some things for you to read and explore so that you can help yourself. Each lesson, we'll either look at something completely new that you've written, or, if requested, we can look at something specific over a number of lessons.

Anusha
Economics (Secondary to University levels) and English (Primary level) Tutoring
Economics classes for University level students will be based on student's needs (some suggestions: Econometrics, Microeconomics, Quantitative Economics). For school students, it can involve advanced learning or basic Economic knowledge (aligned to student's needs). English classes will involve writing and speaking practice (based on the student's existing knowledge). I tend to explain things pretty well. I always try to assign homework for further practice. Times can be discussed with me and I do accommodate students based on mutual availability.

Mimi
English Conversation Elementary and Pre-Intermediate in Breda / English Conversation Intermediate
English Conversation lessons focus on improving your speaking skills. In the lessons different topics will be discussed and debated in an interactive way. This way you can improve your English fluency or vocabulary. You will have the chance to practice English with an experienced and qualified teacher.To join me you don't need anything but your presence! I am an experienced teacher and I speak four languages. I hold a bachelor's degree in teaching of Italian language and Art History from Ljubljana University in Slovenia. Originally from Slovenia I have lived and worked in four different countries because of my husband's film post-production professional. Among other things I lived in London where I taught movement therapy. I moved to the Netherlands five years ago and have been learning Dutch. So I am perfectly aware of the challenges people face when they try to learn a new language as adults. I think that my personal experience can benefit others who are struggling to improve their language skills. My experiences as a teacher have given me the opportunity to interact with a variety of student populations and engage them in learning. In the Netherlands I taught Italian at Buas University - Tourism and Management and English Conversation at Gilde Baronie Apart from my teaching experience I am also a performer, illustrator and movement teacher.

From where and how to derive formulas and work with given problems without even meeting them before. My way of teaching English is different from a standard English courses.
