I have worked as a supplementary English tutor in Johannesburg South Africa for the past six years - mostly at primary and secondary school level. I am a fluent English speaker, and majored in English Literature and History of Art in my Bachelor of Arts degree, for which I received a distinction. I also tutored at a collegiate level in History of Art. I put a lot of emphasis on the role of literature and reading in learning a language, and hope to use resources like books, articles and even films to inspire my students. I also like to make classes fun and exciting for the learners.

I specialise in teaching English at adult level and for students at school. I have helped many children and teens raise their expected grades in the SAT, GED, GRE and GMAT exams. I am a creative practitioner, with a dynamic and enthusiastic approach. I ensure my lessons are enjoyable and I use the latest resources to plan challenging and engaging lessons that improve attainment at school. I track the progress of my students and use effective assessment techniques, to find the learning gaps in my student's knowledge and understanding, and then plan precision lessons that target these. As a result, my students always make accelerated progress and often achieve better than expected results

Bianca
Engels voor gevarieerde doelgroepen door een tweetalige juf
Engels is ongetwijfeld één van de belangrijkste talen in de wereld in zowel een sociaal als professioneel perspectief. Wil je beter kunnen begrijpen waar al die Engels-talige liedjes nou echt over gaan of wil je een Hollywood film zonder ondertiteling kunnen volgen? Wil je jezelf beter kunnen uitdrukken tegenover je Engelse vrienden? Heb je extra hulp nodig met het voorbereiden voor een Engelse examen? Wil je op een toepasselijke manier in het Engels kunnen communiceren voor je werk? Met al deze dingen en nog véél meer ben je bij mij op het juiste adres. Na 13 jaar in Canada te hebben gewoond spreek ik op een native niveau Engels. Buiten dat heb ik een universitaire diploma in Second Language Teaching en heb ik twee jaar in Madrid les gegeven. Een vreemde taal kan voor veel mensen behoorlijk wat stress bezorgen. Desalniettemin, ik doe altijd mijn best om mijn lessen zo interessant en stress-vrij mogelijk te maken. Ik ben een enthousiate, geduldige en erg positieve juf.

Cristina
English teacher and private tutor for specific purposes, travelling, official exams, improve fluency, writing, speaking, any other.
I am a native Spanish speaker holding a Bachelor's degree in TEFL and a Master in Italian language. I've started my degree in the prestigious University of Granada in Spain and completed it in Cambridge, UK. I have been teaching since I am 18, to all levels, for all different kind of specific purposes, obtaining great results. Teaching is my vocation and my passion! Lessons will be tailored and personalised, we won't follow a book. I always create my own materials depending on what my students need, current level, objective that we need to reach and learning style. This is very important as every person is different. We can't apply the same method to two completely different people. I can assure you I have never had a disappointed student. I work hard to obtain the best results and assure your satisfaction getting you where you want to be.

Alessia
American English as a Second Language / Business English
I am a CELTA Certified English Teacher with a Masters' Degree in English Teaching and 20 years experience, and I teach all levels. I am also a Business English Teacher, a Cross-Cultural Trainer and a Translator. Since I am bilingual myself (US/IT) and I speak perfect French and good Spanish, I am able to better understand the difficulties that foreign language learners go through. I can help my students in obtaining all Cambridge Certificates, writing research/academic papers and work presentations. For those who want to improve their oral skills, I have created and developed a communicative fast-learning method that has turned out to be very effective. I can either teach at my place in Amsterdam downtown, at the student's place, at a café/library, or via Skype, depending on the student's needs. I give a 5E discount per class for two hours a week or more and I charge a 10E supplement to go the student's place.

Sabrina
Italian & English lessons for non-native students.
My name is Sabrina and I am a teacher of Italian and English for non-native students. I have a Master in Didactics of Italian as foreign/second Language from the University of Padua (Italy). During the years I have gained a long-standing experience of teaching both in Italy and abroad. Having lived in Amsterdam for long time, English has become my second language. This is why I deeply understand the difficulties that non-native speakers can experience in learning this language. I love both languages. Italian is one of the most studied one in the world. It is the language of arts, opera and culture. Always more students decide to learn it, for plesure, for travelling, for deeply discovering the italian culture. English, instead, is one of the most widely spoken languages, used for business and communication around the world. I am deeply passionate about my job and I give my lesson with creativity and motivation, supporting my students in their learning process with fun. I really look forward to meeting you! Sabrina

Sonia
Spanish and English Language Test Preparation Tutoring
English and Spanish language are becoming quite a core communication vehicle nowadays. Along your career, you will encounter several information sources in these languages, and you will also need full professional proficiency to develop your role. I specialize in tutoring English and Spanish for school, TOEFL, IELTS, Cambridge and Cervantes exams. My goal is to keep students challenged, but not overwhelmed. I assign homework after every lesson and provide periodic progress reports. I have designed this course as a practical guide to master your written and verbal skills. You will learn all the grammar and idiom details, to not only improve your professional proficiency, but to also use them on a personal and colloquial sphere.
