About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Hi I am Elsa. I grew up in South Africa, where English became our second language. At school and then at work this was the main language and at home we spoke Dutch.
I taught English to a colleague at home for a few years. This was in a very relaxed way. First by speaking more at ease feel the English language, then concentrate on the problems, weaknesses - more "to the point" address the language and make it clear. Small written exercises are used for this and also with children's games where you can relax and learn the language.
Learning a new language in a relaxed way is important.

Education

Experience / Qualifications

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Bilingual raised, English and Dutch. I have lived and worked in South Africa for 33 years. From 1985 to 1994 I worked for the South African Tourism Bureau in Amsterdam. In 2000 I returned to the Netherlands for good. Until my retirement in 2013 I worked for the Hillegersberg / Schiebroek district.
For a few years I taught English to a colleague at home every week.
Often also tourist pieces translated from Dutch to English.
I still regularly translate websites.

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.

I help student with finding their own way of understanding the logic behind mathematics and physics. 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. I work more on boosting self confidence of a student, as an English speaker, rather than concentrating on grammar of the Language.
