Sehr angenehm und lustig!
Sehr gute Erfahrung - Geertje ist eine sehr gute und kompetente Lehrerin.
Très reactive à mes demandes.
Wir haben unsere erste Niederländisch-Stunde mit Geertje gehabt. Da sie uns nicht kannte, hat sie uns gezielte Fragen gestellt und konnten zügig mit dem Unterricht beginnen. Sie hat den Unterricht genau nach unseren Wünschen gestaltet. Wir sind sehr zufrieden.
zeer aangename eerste les gehad met een zeer gedreven lesgeefster

Dynamic Dutch courses with a smiling native speaker ;-)
I use several methods which are specially conceived to teach Dutch to people who have a different mother tongue. I really like to use methods out of the ordinary like role games or methods with which you learn while playing. All these adapted to the student's situation of course. As I learned myself a couple of other languages, it is easy for me to detect difficulties a student can encounter and adapt the way of learning. I can teach in English, French, German and Russian.

Conversational English: Conversation Practice and Improvement
I teach conversational English. The initial purpose of my lessons is to get my students to practice speaking English. "Practice makes perfect", it's true, but during our practice sessions, we will soon discover our weak spots and we will have to address them. The real purpose is not just practice but IMPROVEMENT. So we will dedicate a portion of our sessions together to fixing pronunciation and learning the proper way to use tenses and grammar in everyday speech. By the end of this course, you should be able to speak English fluently and confidently.

Xavier
REVIEW ESO AND BACHILLERATO (SOCIAL AND HUMANITIES). ENGLISH
BACHELOR REVIEW classes (Social, Humanities), English, Catalan, Philosophy, Literature, History ... AND THAT. More than 20 years giving individual and small group classes in English, Spanish and Catalan. Academies and online. My name is Xavier. I was born in Barcelona ... a long time ago. I grow up in this town, but now I live a bit far from here. I studied at the University of Barcelona and in Huddersfield (near Shefield, Halifax, Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool, ... not very far from York: quite nice places and better people), and I've been teaching Catalan, Spanish, Philosofy , History and English for a long time ... since I was 16. What happened? Very short, I promise: I was walking down the street two years ago, from just opposite this private school, and I thought myself: well, you might enter this place and see. I like English language very much ... and the UK, ... but I don't have a poster of the Queen on my bedroom's wall. It was a sort of a blind date. And there she was: her smile, her diligence, effectiveness. Eva listened to me. And after two weeks she was texting me for a class. "Please, Xavier, can you cover for some classes?" And here I am. (That was two years and a half ago, at the Academy English Studio where I have been an English teacher for more than two years, untill 13th March, when the lady in charge said literally that she would pass my 59 students to another teacher because I had no Internet at home, as I had recently moved to another town and had not had time to set the Internet, and nobody could have possibly known about that horrible and destructive confinement). More than 20 years teaching and learning with my students. Online classes. Spanish and Catalan teacher, too.

Learning Spanish in fun way with Native Teacher! Spanish from Spain and South America
Hello! I am Claudia from Peru and I grew up in Italy, I am a Spanish native teacher offering funny and useful Spanish Language lessons. I have experience of teaching Spanish in academies for 6 years. I have a bachelor's degree in Literature and Philosophy. No matter your language level, I will speak to you in Spanish from the beginning and help you express yourself and improve your pronunciation and vocabulary! My methodology focuses on oral expression, making you feel comfortable expressing yourself in Spanish, since speaking is the form of communication that we use the most, although it is hardly practiced in the classroom. Of course, we will also review the rest of the communication areas and we will pay special attention to the grammatical issues on which we have to work. I like to teach, focusing on the strengths of my students, giving them confidence to achieve their goals. You will naturally gain your speaking skills through classes with me, I have didactic materials but I focus on helping you improve listening and speaking in our conversations more. I love teaching not only the language but also the culture, we can do conversation about cinema, literature and music from Peru, and I can explain you the differences between Spanish from Spain and Spanish from Latin America. It would be my pleasure to teach all levels, beginners are very welcome! All kids and adults are welcome too!

(I)GCSE English Literature / IB English Literature
Having difficulties analysing poems and prose in your (I) GCSE / IB English Literature course? Looking to amp your essays up a notch and finally get that A/A* or 6/7 that you have been dreaming of? I am here to help. The first thing to remember: though analysing works of literature isn't always fun, everybody can master the techniques of how to do it. But learning takes time, which the school teacher may often lack. Indeed, it has been my own experience that English teachers often choose width over depth, and so discussions are cut short for the sake of covering all elements of the teaching programme, leaving many interesting aspects of a particular work unexplored. Or sometimes it's just the attention that wanders off as the teacher is explaining these pesky concepts of "writer's voice", "writer's tone", "meter", "rhymescheme" and so on. Let me assure you: that, too, happens even to the best of us. What I can offer you is exactly what a teacher normally does not time for: exploring a work of literature in as much detail (both analytical and technical) as it takes to push the quality of your essays up to the desired level. My approach is informed by IB / (I)GSCE Eng Lit course guidelines to make sure that the quality of your answer would be developed in accordance with what examiners want to see. Armed with a deep passion for literature on the one hand (reading and writing poems and short stories are one of my favorite things to do) and knowledge of ways of critical analysis (obtained in IB English Lit and reinforced by philosophy courses on university level) which are of tremendous importance in literary analysis as well, I will show you how to deconstruct any piece, how to place it in its cultural context, and make educated guesses about the links between cultural context and the author's choice of stylistical devices. And best of all - unlike in the classroom, the learning experience is tailored to you (based on your way of learning / remembering) and delivered in a highly interactive way! The skills described above, coupled with general essay writing tips will lend authority and style to your summative essays and exam answers, boosting your academic confidence. Ready to leave unsatisfactory essays in the past? Then contact me today!

This course is aimed at beginners as well as learners who wish to progress in the mastery of Spanish as a foreign language. I adapt it to the profile of each one after having evaluated the faculties present and the points to be reinforced. The course is mainly focused on oral practice and written practice, including the necessary theoretical points if necessary. Each lesson is built with the learner for a specific goal to achieve. I try to deliver accurate feedback at the end of each class. Feel free to contact me for more information.

Repetitive language courses, English and German for any age and level
I offer repetitive English and German lessons, according to your school program or simply by wanting to develop in these languages. Having obtained my gymnasium maturity certificate in June 2020, I have an intermediate level B1 in these two languages with a small advance on English.

ONLINE NT2 lessons (Dutch for speakers of other languages) in Breda - Dutch for foreigners - all levels
DUTCH FOR FOREIGNERS - ALL LEVELS - A0 to C1 Normally I provide all lessons at my place; but as we have to comply to government corona regulations, I have transformed all lessons temporarily to ONLINE LESSONS. As I have wide experience in Skype lessons, the quality of the course remains guaranteed. I teach beginners and advanced students; special training are possible for CITIZENSHIP or STATE EXAMS. All frequencies possible; once or several times a week. Duration of lessons: 60, 90 and 120 minutes. Most students prefer lessons of 90 or 120 minutes, as 60 minutes is considered to be a bit too short. I will teach TAILOR MADE lessons in the speed that is appropriate for you. If you want to speed up, we will speed up: if you want to slow down, we will slow down; if you want to practice more, we will practice more; all depending on your general education level and on the time you have available - beyond the course hours - to study and do homework. Lessons are available from 9 am to 17 pm; evening classes can be discussed. The available time slots here on the Apprentus website are merely an indication; as I do short term as well as long term projects, I often have the possibility to schedule you in at short notice, so you can start your course almost immediately. NT2 - Dutch for speakers of other languages: assistance with integration exam, State exam I and II Dutch lessons for non-native speakers at all levels, from A0 to C1. All frequencies possible: one or more times a week. Lessons of 60, 90 or 120 minutes. Come and learn the language with personal guidance in a quiet environment. I adapt my lessons to your pace. I teach classes from Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Evening classes after 5 pm also possible (in consultation); + 30%. The times when there is room for lessons is only an indication !! Usually there is room available in the short term, since I accept both short and long-term projects.
