    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.

    About Me

    I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa where I have lived my whole life. I am moving to Amsterdam to complete my Masters degree in Comparative Cultural Analysis at the Vrije Universiteit.

    I have a passion and love for English, and reading. Since I was very young you could always catch me with my nose in a book. I also enjoy watching films, walking my dogs, and practicing yoga.

    I get on very well with young children - and have had experience with kids of all ages through either volunteer work, tutoring or camp counselling.

    I am hoping to pursue a career in academia or education.

    English, conversational and prep for official tests
    My lessons are completely conversation-based. This can be a bit scary and uncomfortable at first, but. as we say in the Netherlands, practice makes art! The more English you allow into your life, the more naturally it will come to you and the better and more confident you will become in using English. All lessons are tailored to the personal wishes of the students in combination with my assessment of what is needed to improve :)

    I specialise in English (British & American) tuition for native and non-native speakers of all ages, and have experience working with: • young children learning English for the first time • primary- and secondary-school students studying the English language and its literatures • adult professionals and seniors wishing to improve their language skills, or develop pronunciation or presentational skills I have two degrees in English language and literature (B.A. and Mst) from the University of Oxford, and I am also a graduate of the International Baccalaureate (I.B.) Diploma program. I've developed a creative approach in my sessions with students that involves applying a student's particular talents and interests (regardless of subject) in the process of language acquisition, along with the simultaneous development of critical skills like close and careful reading, argumentation, written style, and effective communication. I am versed in the requirements and intricacies of a range of national and international diploma programs. When working with students supplementing an academic syllabus, my goal is always to position them to succeed in the assignments and assessments laid out by a primary instructor.

    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.

    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!
