    English Language, Literature and Acting / Drama coaching

    I specialise in teaching English to students studying up to their final school exams, as well as English as a foreign language. I assess a student's level, strengths and weaknesses, in order to help them achieve their exam potential.

    I am an actress, professionally trained in London, who can coach students through admission auditions for Drama schools, or help anyone prepare for public speaking.

    I have experience in teaching English Language and English Literature to students aged 11-18. I also have experience tutoring early years development to small children, such as the basics of reading and writing, shapes, colours and counting.

    About Me

    I have 5 years experience teaching English Language and Literature to ages 3-18. I get to know the student as an individual and try to instil them with 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.

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

    English literature, language, comprehension, and fluency.
    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.

    English Lessons: Essentials of Grammar and Literature.
    In today's day and age of globalization and networking, knowing English has taken up a primal importance. It facilitates communication, which opens up a vast array of avenues and helps to broaden a person's horizons. My aim is to guide students through a lively and enjoyable path as they learn to speak, read and write English by appreciating the cultural contexts and the rich literature available.

    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.

    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.

    Russian, English Spanish for beginners, continuing and advanced students and adults
    Being able to speak multiple languages is a great advantage and such knowledge is valued by the employers. Moreover it is always a great confidence boost being able to communicate with people from other countries. I offer Russian, English and Spanish classes at any level. I will help you to understand the basics from alphabet to more complex grammatical things as well as cultural elements that will fascinate you.

    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
