English language for Adults, Boost your Listening and Speaking.
I am a cheerful, optimistic and mindful teacher. I have been giving this course for more than 6 years. The class provides a flexible set of teaching materials, which can help you to improve your speaking and grammar skills at the same time. At the lesson different interactive activities, such as watching authentic videos and listening popular songs, are used to level up your English as fast as possible. Studying can be funny and fascinating. Teaching experience and friendly ambience can break down the wall of your silence. The course mission is to boost your vocabulary and communication. I provide all the materials and interesting homework tasks, which are prepared personally for every student.

Jay
Conversational English: Improve with Native English Speaker!
This is a communicative English class for developing speech. Here we will explore, vocabulary with nuances in meanings, synonyms, idioms, proverbs, some phrasal verb and prepositional verbs and all-around social English. The possibilities are endless for focusing on Public Speaking, Intonation and Voice Projection as well. This may be stimulated by interesting audios, short readers or videos. If there are topics you have in mind, we can additionally explore and incorporate this into your lessons. If you need to start speaking English, this class is for you! KEEP IN MIND that your grammar must meet a 7-page assessment requirement which will be administered during the first session; otherwise, you will have to book the class titled "English Development with Native Speaker (Pronunciation, ESL, Business, TOIEC/TOEFL/IELTS Prep)".

English classes to perfect your English! One-to-one lessons, tailor made for every student.
As a native English speaker with a degree in English Literature and 8 years of teaching experience I am passionate about helping others find confidence in speaking, reading and writing the English language. I specialise in furthering English as a second language through immersion and conversation which helps to highlight areas to work on in a natural way. Further work on grammar, spelling and language structure can be set, particularly with any exams or deadlines in mind. Each class will be tailored to the student's specific needs! I look forward to working with you :)

Fatjon
English Writing, Tutoring, Assignment help, Essays
This class is for individuals who want to improve their writing skills in English. I have gone through the journey myself in the past so I am equipped with the skills to ensure your success. I hold a BA, MA and a JD, all from American universities. I tailor each lesson based on the needs of the student, because I believe you need to know how to walk before you can run. I provide line-by-line feedback on your assignment and recommend sources/tools on how you can be a more effective writer. I can be flexible about the schedule so let me know if you are interested but cannot make it due to conflicting schedules. I will try my best to match your schedule.

Lois
Experienced and native English teacher available for vocabulary, spelling, pronunciation, grammar, reading and writing lessons in Amsterdam
I like to start my lessons by going through some basic questions. These questions will be asked each week so that students become fluent in them. Once they have learnt these questions we move onto new questions. The question selection will depend on the age of the students. For example, for younger children I ask about age/name/favourite foods or colours. For older students and adults I ask about plans for the weekend/past holidays/family member. After spending a few minutes on basic questions, I move onto the main topic. Generally I will spend 3 - 4 lessons on each topic, depending on how quickly the student is able to learn the topic. The first week will concentrate just on vocabulary and the following weeks will look at how to use that vocabulary in a sentence and how to structure a sentence.

Improve your command of English through speech and grammar
Would you like to improve your English proficiency? Don't look any further. Being a CELTA qualified language teacher (pass A) with nine years of experience, I can help you get a good command of the language. I offer individual and group courses consisting of 10 to 20 classes in which I'll guide you through the basics of English. We'll start the course with a single lesson to get acquainted and to find out whether there's chemistry between us. If that's indeed the case, I'll work out a personal development plan for you, based on your goals, your current level and your specific needs. As a rule, I'll be in charge of selecting and creating the materials and of setting up the course as a whole. However, if you explicitly want to use a certain method or if you have particular needs, I can be flexible too. For example, if you want to make yourself understood in daily life but don't care too much about your writing skills, the course will focus mainly on your oral development. Either way, we'll work with a tailor-made course plan, so that we can focus on your personal strengths and weaknesses both as a learner and a user of the English language. Did I manage to stir up your enthusiasm? Good! Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you want me to teach you the basics of this world language.

Joana
Italian, English, Spanish, French Tutoring. Pick a language and let's speak it!
I specialize in tutoring English, Italian, Spanish and French. I recently studied to become an English teacher through the intensive CELTA (Certificate in teaching English to speakers of other languages) from Cambridge University and I own a bachelor degree in English, Spanish and French language focusing on translation and interpreting. My mother tongue is Italian. I enjoy planning and delivering interactive, student centred lessons where the students do most of the talking. At the end of the lesson, I love to see the students communicating with each other or with me directly by making use of their new language skills.

Rob
Tutoring and support for pupils and students with specific learning difficulties
I motivate, encourage and guide people in learning and finding solutions to achieve their own goals in an efficient and focused way. Due to my broad experience and high general level of knowledge, in addition to pedagogical / didactic support, I can also provide extra lessons in all alpha subjects of secondary education and guidance of students in the preparation of exams and writing theses.

Andi
Engelse les voor kinderen/ General English- English for exam preparation for young learners
This is a class for young learners whose ages range from 7-12. The lessons revolve around American culture, school, and usually, a combination of the content of the coursebook and whatever the students' interests are. Another focus of our classes can very well be exam preparation- Cambridge Starters, Cambridge Movers, or Cambridge Cambridge Flyers. The target language is English and the best way to learn is through immersion. This is the reason why all instructions are given in English but if necessary, at the beginning of class, I can juggle 2 languages. These classes are brought to life through storytelling and games, all delivered in a relaxed, judgment-free, and fun way. If you have any questions, feel free to DM me. Thank you!

Emma
English for Students and Adults (academic writing, grammar and speaking)
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!

Lily
Tutoring in English, French and Spanish; specialist in literary analysis and urban planning

I have over 5 years of experience in tutoring, and am very passionate about education.
