Trusted teacher: 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.

Trusted teacher: 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.

Trusted teacher: Teaching Persian/Farsi language and literature is my Passion. Currently, I am working on Persian poetry as my Ph.D. project at Leiden University, where I am also teaching Persian as a research tool to students with a Persian background. With my eighteen years of teaching experience in Iran, where I thought English to Persian speakers, I can design tailor-made course plans to help students learn Persian and English from basic to professional levels. To meet the specific needs of different students, I will adopt suitable teaching approaches, ranging from conversation-based to text-oriented ones.

Trusted teacher: Hi, My name is Ugnė and I am a 20-year-old student. I speak fluent English, Lithuanian, and German. I was born in Lithuania, completed primary school in Austria, did the Middle Years Program in Lithuania at an international school, received my International Baccalaureate Diploma in Denmark, and currently, I am doing my bachelors in Psychology here in the Netherlands at Leiden University. From the age of 10, I have only attended English-speaking schools as well as completed various education programs in English. I am able to teach using only English, German, or Lithuanian. I am willing to assist both adults and children (such as doing homework). My approach with tutoring is very enthusiastic, encouraging, and friendly as teaching should be enjoyable for the student. I also have babysitting experiences and experiences working with young children particularly with special needs.

Trusted teacher: 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.

Trusted teacher: In my English class, we will speak English in a really comfy atmosphere and make the most fun out of it. For me, it's important that you enjoy your English lessons and feel free to make mistakes! You can bring your own materials, like books or a laptop or let me prepare some exercises for you.

Trusted teacher: Private tutoring classes for young children, teenagers, adults and seniors who would like to: > Learn Italian, French and/or English from scratch > Do homework with the support of a tutor > Improve and perfect their language skills (speaking, writing, listening and reading) > Prepare for language certifications such as PET, FIRST, TOEFL, DELF, admission exams... > Practice their skills in fun conversations and/or for special occasions About Francesca: I graduated as a translator and interpreter from the University of Geneva (Switzerland) and I lived in different countries where I perfected my accent and pronunciation and I also learnt about the local culture (specifically Italy, Switzerland, France, Germany, Belgium, UK, the US). I love foreign languages and cultures and my goal is to pass this enthusiasm on to my students as they also learn "boring" grammar rules. For me it's all about helping you find a method of language learning that makes it easy for you to remember new words and correct grammar. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Perhaps the question for all of us is what lies behind all these wonders of the world and how can we understand it to an acceptable degree? To achieve this understanding, basic science is the strongest method available. If you are looking for the secret of the truth of this world, I must say that you should not be afraid of the difficulty of equations and you should take steps to learn everything. From my teaching experience, I can say that learning is not impossible and that everyone is capable of changing their world and making the impossible و possible. If you do not know where to start, I can share my knowledge with you with all my being.

As I am finishing my Bachelor in Comparative Philosophy at Leiden University, I am more than happy to help high school students and adults who show interest in engaging in critical thinking, whether it is for exams, tests or as personal challenge. Furthermore, I am proficient in English, French and German for students and adults interested in learning a new language or preparing for language tests.

Trusted teacher: English or Spanish classes based in speaking to improve fluency and vocabulary. You won't need anything else rather than a pen and a paper. We'll talk and I'll teach you how to correctly pronounce, the tenses, false friends and phrasal verbs and anything else you may need in your everyday.

Trusted teacher: 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.
I have a Ph.D. in theoretical chemistry and material, and two master degrees in theoretical physics and solid state physics. I have ample experience in teaching all the courses related to physics, chemistry, and mathematics. Sometimes courses based on a strong mathematical background cause problems for many students that their mathematical basis is weak, therefore they cannot follow the courses. This leads to them get bored and give it up. I usually try to start my course from the basic and elementary step and examples. I try to encourage students as much as possible. There are many fundamental physics phenomena in our daily life. I try to make examples from these phenomena to solve the difficult physics problems. This makes students more interested in what they are learning and how they apply the physics and mathematics rules to solve problems even in their life.
Trusted teacher: Are you interested in improving your English language skills this summer? Hi there! I'm a home-grown English native, currently here to teach and further my studies at Leiden University. I'm looking for enthusiastic students seeking to improve their English skills over the summer. If you are looking for a relaxed learning environment to sharpen your English skills then look no further! With a wide range of interests and experiences I offer to work with my students to build an English course around their interests and learning goals. Whether that involves a focused course of lessons in vocabulary, improving your pronunciation, or preparing for a specific test; or a more relaxed setting, in which we meet at either your residence or mine, to discuss a list of topics you find interesting and engaging. There really is no better way to get comfortable with speaking a second language than to spend time in the company of a native speaker, so why not join me for some British tea and engaging conversation.

I have enough knowledge in all areas of the English language to be able to help every secondary school student. I am currently in the process of completing my third year of the English teacher training course. Since the start of my studies, I have been doing an internship at a secondary school for 2 days a week, so I have already gained a lot of experience in teaching and supporting students.

Although I am a trained philosophy teacher for secondary students, I have shifted my focus to tutoring English and Portuguese language learners. My goal is to provide dynamic classes that allow students to use functional language in real-world ways, but each class can be tailor-made to the individual's needs. I use Cambridge materials for my English classes, in addition to real-world texts and videos, to train students on grammar, pronunciation and vocabulary. Student-centered classes are the most beneficial in my opinion, so I focus on having the student speak while also guiding them with the correct language depending on their problem areas.

I received a grade A1 in my Leaving Certificate English studies and my BA degree includes a specialisation in English. I also have experience teaching English as a second language in both Spain and Zambia. I am available for lessons after lectures and during weekends. The lessons can be held in a location that suits you or via Skype, etc. if necessary. These lessons can be for students of any level who want extra support in English acquisition or improvement. As the student you can choose which areas you would most like to focus on and I can structure the lessons with this in mind. This can include areas such as grammar, conversation, vocabulary, and much more. We can discuss together how best I can help you to improve your language skills based on your needs, for example through help with homework or setting additional homework. If the hours shown do not suit you let me know as my lecture hours vary slightly each week and I may be able to fit you in. If you have any questions at all don't hesitate to message me.
