    About Me

    Greetings,

    About me:

    I'm an American citizen who lives in the Netherlands with my partner and cat. I love reading, visiting art museums, eating good food and watching art house films.

    About my teaching philosophy:

    My language teaching method is informed by two beliefs:

    In an increasingly connected world, language learning is key to success.
    and
    Education doesn't end at school or university, it's a life long process.

    That's why I became an ESL teacher, to help people succeed in international business throughout their lives.

    But I also believe that learning a new language should be fun and challenging.

    Education

    Specialization in museums and collections

    How to use the present simple vs present continuous
    The present simple and present continuous are both forms of the present tense. But you can’t use them the same way. When do you use the present simple and when the present continuous? This course will give you the answer + exercises to practise.

    English Conversations & Laughs with a Native Speaker
    Learning English should be as natural as you learned your native language: you couldn't read or write and you had no idea of grammar rules, but you were constantly exposed to the language by observing people and movements, playing and discovering. In my class you will take an hour out of your day to practise your conversational skills with me. You’ll be exposed to the language while chatting about topics that interest you, also while doing fun activities. This way you'll associate images, sounds and words and will learn English naturally. Every class with every student is different depending on the topic and the level of English the student is at. If this sounds like something that would interest you I urge you to reach out to me. I am a certified English Teacher and have years of experience under my belt. I look forward to hearing from you!

    Spanish lessons/ Native teacher/İstanbul'da ve online özel İspanyolca dersi/ DELE/ özel yerli öğretmen / Clases de español/ スペイン語のレッスン。
    My Spanish lessons will be skill and grammar focused. I will help the students to develop their language skills so that they can use them in real contexts. For the DELE and Cambridge assessment lessons the students must have a good command of the language because I will prepare them to know the structure of the tests while they practice and develop the main skills and sub skills needed to have a good result. İspanyolca derslerim beceri ve dilbilgisi odaklı olacak. Öğrencilerin, dili gerçek anlamda kullanmak için dil becerilerini geliştirmelerine yardımcı olacağım. DELE dersleri için öğrencilerin iyi derecede İspanyolca bilmesi gerekir ve onları testin yapısını bilmeye hazırlayacağım ve iyi bir sonuç elde etmek için gereken temel becerilerini ve alt becerilerini çalıştıracağım.

    Yolanda
    ESL/EFL Online English Language Tutor - Individuals
    My lessons are student-centred, flexible, and fun! Lessons are continuously adapted to suit the individual; every lesson is structured based on the needs of the student. The focus of each lesson will initially be based on a student needs assessment carried out at the start of your course, and adapted based on progress and changing needs. Learning areas identified may include: * Refining your pronunciation * Practicing everyday language and conversational skills * Exam preparation, focusing on specific grammar and/or vocabulary * Reading comprehension and practice * Writing correction and practice * Job interview preparation Lessons are conducted in English, since this has shown to be the most effective way for students to learn a foreign or second language. It is recommended to book a course of at least 20 hours.

    🚀EVERY CHILD IS A MATHS GENIUS | British Tutor 🇬🇧
    .. [British Maths Tutor] ... When I was a young child, I believed I was not a mathematical person. It wasn't until I met an amazing teacher at age 15 that I discovered my mathematical genius and my life was changed forever. I'm eternally grateful to that teacher. My teacher knew that self-image and self-belief is the key to unlock your child's mathematical abilities. Everyone is good at maths, but we all have different styles of thinking. Bad teachers teach every child the same way. My job is find your child's style of mathematics and allow him to discover that for himself. When he discovers that, he will begin to enjoy the beauty and power of mathematics ...and then you will see as the grades begin to soar. 👉Click the blue "Contact Oliver" button above and lets discuss how we can unlock your child's mathematical talents! 😊

    English Private Tuitions (Adults and School Students) + IELTS
    I am specialized in teaching English to adults and students in international and private schools. For adults, this class offers a general English practice or IELTS test preparation depending on what the student is looking for. The lessons will first start by evaluating their abilities in the four main skills (Speaking, Listening, Writing and Reading) then we can work together to plan the weekly lessons accordingly. As for the school pupils, the student shall present his/her previous test papers and results to identify his/her weaknesses and strengths. The second step is to follow the school's book(s) and curriculum (unless the parents wish otherwise). The classes consists of test revision, homework assistance and lots of practice. Any communication occurring during the class must be in English. The class usually consists of one student.

    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.
