    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.

    Math Tutoring (GCSE A-level/ VWO/ SAT/ IIT/ GRE/ GMAT)
    I am specialized (>5 years of experience) in tutoring math for school (any level, but preferably higher level), including competitive exams such as the SAT, GRE, GMAT, and the IIT-JEE. This class is aimed to train high-school students undergoing VWO or an IB curriculum. If you are having problems following math at school or university, or you wish to have an advanced knowledge compared to your peers, or prepare for any competitive exam, I am glad to help you. Personally, I have succeded in the IIT-JEE and GRE tests and am currently working as a Quantitative Researcher of stock markets, and therefore analytical math is also a part of my job. The classes could be rigorous or lenient depending on the student. There will be periodic progress reviews and tests and I'll make sure that the student achieves his desired goals.

    Robert
    Need help with social studies, English or mathematics?
    Hey, my name is Robert. I am 22 years old and are currently studying European studies at UvA. I am from Denmark and last year I worked as a teacher at a private school in Denmark called Vejle Privatskole where I primarily taught math and English. I will be able to tutor social science and English on a level equivalent to secondary education. Math however I will only tutor on a primary school level due to my knowledge of the subject not being as proficient as the other two. My native language is Danish, but my English is almost as excellent as my Danish and I will be able to tutor in either English or Danish however I do not that I do not tutor in Dutch. I am good with children, always smiling and happy so I would be able to tutor children as well as adults. I sincerely hope that whoever reads this will consider me as a tutor. Best regards Robert Kolby

    CELTA-qualified native English teacher with 2+ years experience teaching kids, teens, students and adults from all backgrounds. I'm also a journalist and rMA graduate (Cultural Analysis) with a lot of writing and editorial experience. I've taught general English, exam preparation (Cambridge, IELTS) and academic English in the UK, Spain and Amsterdam. I'm young, smart and casual – I prefer informal classes with a lot of fun activities, video and popular culture. But I'm also a specialist in high level writing and academic skills. I can help most with writing at all levels! I offer structured 1-on-1 classes tailored to the student's needs, more informal conversation classes, group classes (up to 6), or proofing and editing services – let me know if you need help with cover letters, applications, university coursework or writing of any kind! Rates vary with type and class size (groups and conversation classes are cheaper than structured 1-on-1). The minimum price shown is for conversation classes – more structure and preparation of materials will cost more.

    I am studying my bachelor fully in English and I previously learnt English from different institutions, building a solid and extensive knowledge. This class is particularly suitable for (lower-) intermediate and basic learners who want to learn English at academic level or for working purposes, and for students who would like some extra training before their exams! According to your preferences, I will focus on speaking and conversation, or on grammar and academic writing. I will organize homework and self-studying according to your learning objectives because my goal is that you will always enjoy learning Italian!

    Eyre
    English Tutor; Adult English; All primary subjects tutored in English;
    After five years of teaching at international schools as the homeroom teacher, I understand how the school subjests are organized and the tests SAT, GED, GRE, and GMAT exams are focused. I hope to create a classroom for the students to explore and discover the world around them. Whether it's science, math, or music, the students will learn through the channel of English. Experiments, discussions and art-work are involved in the class while the subject goals assigned from the school are reached at the same time. English is more than a language skill to master, but a media to all the knowledge the world has to offer.
