American Native English Teacher - English Lessons for Children and Teenagers (In Person or Online)

Hello students! My name is Sandra. I am a native English speaker from New York State. I have a Bachelor's degree in Childhood Inclusive Education (Grades 1-6) from the State University of New York at Fredonia. I currently teach at an international school in Delft, and I teach private online English classes and private English classes to children and teenagers in The Hague. I have been teaching ESL (English as a Second Language) to children ages 3-16 for 5 years. I also have experience teaching English to a group of adults, and 4 years of experience working in elementary schools in New York and international schools in Serbia and The Netherlands.

I can provide classes to children and teenagers. I can help with improvement of speaking, pronunciation, reading, listening, writing, grammar, etc. My aim is to create a positive and enjoyable learning environment for my students. Additional homework can be provided to my students if requested.

For children or teenagers who need a tutor, I am available to help with studying, homework, or further advancement in English. Vital learning tools I regularly use in my classroom for children include educational games, activities, songs, and storybooks. Visuals and interactive hands-on learning are important to encourage students to engage and actively participate in their learning. For children, each lesson is aimed towards learning a topic such as food, animals, sports, emotions, and more. I provide the learning activities for class such as the worksheets and games created by me or games I have purchased. I incorporate reward charts with stickers and positive reinforcement as well. Based on my experience, I have learned to adjust my teaching style based on different students' needs, cultures, socioeconomic backgrounds, and learning abilities.

I hope you can join my English lessons! I can provide my resume, reference letters, or teaching portfolio if requested. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Extra information

The student will most likely need a notebook, pencil, and a folder to save worksheets from class.

Sandra is very patient with my daughter. And my daughter really has fun with Sandra during the class. She is making progress right now.
Sandra is helping my teenage daughter to improve her English skills. She is organized and always plan the classes in advance. Sandra is very responsible and also friendly, I would recommend her.
Our children really enjoyed the class.
Sandra is teaching my 2 and 4 year old. They are brought up bilingual and Sandra is great in helping us to educate and develop their English further. We found it important that learning is fun and Sandra incorporates this in the assignments. Sandra’s assignments are playful, but at the same time very educational and brings their English to the next level. The boys are always eager to see her again. Sandra is friendly, patients, organised and great with kids. Would definitely recommend her.

Beginners and advanced Russian, English and international tests
I am a student in Leiden University in The Hague. I specialise in tutoring Russian and English. As a native Russian speaker I can teach you the basics of the language or more advanced structures as well as speaking, reading and listening. Besides, I have C1 in English and I am doing my studies in English as well. You can practice speaking, writing and reading with me.

Sinead
English lessons for speakers of other languages by CELTA qualified native speaker
I offer online or face-to-face English lessons to non-native speakers. I work with the student to identify learning objectives and any areas of weakness and tailor the lesson accordingly. Areas covered during the lesson include, speaking, listening, reading, writing, grammar accent reduction. I currently live in Den Haag, The Netherlands. In addition to private coaching, I also work for an online ESL company delivering English lessons to children across a range of age groups. In addition, I also work as an ESL proofreader and IELTS private tutor here in The Hague. I hold a BA (Hons) degree and have a CELTA qualification. Prior to a career in ESL English teaching, I worked in the UK national press for the Times and Financial Times newspapers. It was there I developed my proofreading and communications skills. In my spare time, I write articles for magazines and have had feature stories published in The Telegraph magazine, The Daily Mail and a number of health magazines. I have also written two language books. The first, 'I Already Speak Speak French!' is an illustrated book for children that covers the etymology of many English words to their French origin (attached is a sample of it for your interest!). It has been translated for the French market into, 'I Already Speak English!' The second book is called, 'Learn Business English FAST!' which draws on a teaching methodology used for effective, fast learning that I used whilst teaching English for the international company, GoFluent.

Shahnoza
Conversational English and Grammar for everyone; a lot of speaking practice
My name is Shahnoza, and I am offering English classes to everyone, whether you are a student who feels a bit self-conscious about your English or you are a grown-up who wants to broaden the opportunities and horizons. I always try to avoid formalities and make my classes (reasonably) informal and friendly. If you have (and with me you always will, I'll simply make you talk to me) some stories, I will gladly listen to them and help you develop your ideas. My goal is to make my students speak the language and understand why they should use this or that word. I believe that every person is a whole world and I would like to know this world and help my students show this world to people. Can't wait to work with you! :)

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.
