About Me

I have 7 years experience teaching English Language and Literature to ages 3-18, including students in both International and Dutch schools in London, Amsterdam and Amstelveen.

I get to know the student as an individual and try to instill in them an understanding and enthusiasm for the subject. I am patient and friendly, as I believe it is important to ensure that tutoring is seen as a positive experience which can help a student achieve their full potential. By using a mix of techniques, using video clips, quizzes, TV shows and worksheets, I aim to keep the subject alive, but also ensure all my teaching is rooted in solid exam technique where necessary. My students have gone on to have a marked improvement in their grades and pass exams at a higher level than they were predicted before tutoring.

I have also helped professionals perfect their English and submit applications, presentations and publicity material in English.

I can coach anyone with their public speaking or drama related needs, since I am a professional working actress, trained in London. I love to help students wishing to apply for drama school in the UK or America with their entrance auditions.

Education

Post Graduate Diploma in Professional Acting, Drama Studio London 2013.
BA (Hons) English Literature and Film & Theatre, University of Reading, UK.
I have worked as a personal tutor in the UK and Amsterdam for the last 7 years.

Experience / Qualifications

English coach to professionals in a variety of high-profile areas, who need to submit presentations, applications and publish promotional material in English.
Private tutor to high-school students in Amsterdam, teaching English as a foreign language and English literature and language for essay writing and presentation skills.

Early years tutor in the UK to bi-lingual child, introducing reading, writing and counting skills.

Learn English to speak, write, read, listen!
English is the main language of the world; it is a language in which most people communicate with each other. Most podcasts, books, films and series are often made in this beautiful language. That is why it is very important nowadays to be able to speak and listen well in English. You really can't start studying English early enough. That's why I'm here for you, if you want to take your English to the next level - however young or old you are. In my lessons we will work with this important and special language as much as possible via webcam or at a location somewhere in Amsterdam or at your home; vocabulary, speaking skills, accents, interesting texts we will all go through and practice very well with me as a teacher so that you can also converse flawlessly in English!!

Giorgia
Italian language lessons from a native speaker - any level
Hello everyone! I'm Giorgia and I come from Torino, Italy. I offer my native knowledge of Italian to any of you, who wants to discover this beautiful language. I teach for all levels, from very beginners to advanced speakers, passing through amateurs or simply curious of any age. I can also help with university exams and school works/assignments. Being a pianist and a piano teacher, I already have lots of experience with teaching and pedagogical approach with the whole range of ages. The lesson is intended to meet the student needs: the focus can be on the grammar, conversation or literature. In case of a middle-level speaker, the lesson will cover all four language's abilities: listening, speaking, writing and reading. My suggestion of a well planned lesson is, for any level, to divide it into two parts: grammar first and then conversation (covering all the abilities mentioned above). Thank you for your attention and looking forward to meeting you !!

Drama skills: acting, storytelling, public speaking, text analysis, writing
Studying for an audition and want some help working on monologues or duologues? Wanting to induce a more dramatic performance in to your song? Interested in how drama skills can help your public speaking/presentation and communication skills? Or just generally curious about anything drama or acting related - whether it's about analysing a text, writing your own script or delving more into any of the many methods you can use to develop your skills as an actor an performer? Then I might be able to help you! I'm a professional actor, trained at Cygnet Theatre in Exeter, now living in London. I have extensive experience performing in immersive theatre - communicating, catching and holding the attention of a wide variety of people. I also have experience in storytelling, working with and teaching children of all ages, as well as writing and producing theatre. Starting drama classes as a teenager was one of the most important things I ever did. It help me build confidence, develop empathy and ground me as the person I am today. I love performing and creating experiences for my audience - watching their faces as they're surprised, entertained or disgusted by the stories I tell. But just as important as that is the opportunity to share some of the tools I learned from drama school with other people - tools that can be used every day in communication, emotional regulation and play. I am more than happy to tailor classes to your specific needs, so if you think I can help you out, get in touch and we will talk!

With me you will have lessons in a didactic and friendly way!

Rico (Ph.D)
Guidance in (scientific) writing and communication.
Like no other, I know how difficult it can be to structure a research or project in a short time. You want to distinguish main issues from side issues and be in the final report to-the-point in communicating the results. From MBO level 2 I went on to a doctorate in astrophysics at the University of Amsterdam. During this path, I have written hundreds of reports, published 6 scientific articles and presented my findings hundreds of times both informally and formally. In addition, I have been a successful thesis supervisor of 3 bachelor students and 1 master's student. I would like to help you get the best out of yourself with the help of my knowledge and experience. However, I do not want to do this with a leadership mentality, but from an advisory mentality in which we can put together as equals a nice end product that we both support. I can offer concrete support for your research/project in: - Setup and planning - Doing literature study - Quality assurance - Presentation and structure/content - Popularizing the topics with catchy texts - Review with a critical look - Give layout and design input - And much more Do you think I can help you or do you want to know more? I would love to hear from you!
