    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 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 :)

    Tutoring Maths / Physics / English online or in the Amsterdam / Den Helder area
    Hi! My name is Lex. I have been teaching math and physics for 3.5 years for high school in Den Helder. Since this year I am now a bachelor student mathematics at the University of Amsterdam, and am looking for a few new students to be able to supervise for tutoring. A few points that really set me apart from the rest are: - my tutoring experience, I have been giving 3.5 years of tutoring experience at many different levels - I work a lot less formally, this mainly ensures that the student is not afraid to ask questions or will feel "stupid" - I am very flexible with the times - I can explain everything in many different ways - the student can always send a whatsapp if something fails, and then I help him with that Online tutoring is certainly possible, and I also ensure that all notes that I make are forwarded so that they can be reviewed later. The best I recommend is a block of 2 hours in a row for tutoring, hereby I am sure that I can sufficiently help the student. If there are any questions, feel free to send me a message.

    English lessons for all levels - teacher taught at Columbia University and the University of Amsterdam
    This class is perfect for anyone seeking to improve their English. First I wish to be acquainted with your level, meaning I want to hear you speak, read, write so I know what I am working with. During each class, I will give a grammar lesson and a list of vocabulary words and idioms related to your specific vocation. We will work through exercises that I will have compiled and throughout the way I will explain the specific reasoning behind a correct answer. It goes without saying that you will be taking notes avidly! After ten lessons I will create a test for you that you will work on during your own free time. I have graduated cum laude from the University of Amsterdam. I studied Literary and Cultural Analysis where my chief area of specialization has been poetic analysis. I teach another course on this site related to poetry writing. The reason I invoke poetry is that in poetry an advanced knowledge of grammar and vocabulary is essential. I have published a work of poetry meaning I play with the rules of grammar in order to give a specific effect quite often. While we won't meddle with poems in this course, explaining my background sheds light on my qualifications for giving English lessons, in addition to spending most of my time this past five years of perfecting my English language skills.

    Improve your negotiation skills using the Harvard method
    It has been said everything is negotiable. You might have experienced this early in life, for example when you discovered your bedtime was not cast in stone. Years later you probably found out your negotiation skills had gradually become more important. Indeed, they are an essential competence for everyone who wants to achieve something. As a professional, you have to negotiate a lot, too. You are likely to find yourself mediating between clients involved in a conflict or negotiating about certain clauses in a contract. Besides that, you might have talks with your employer about salary, holidays and other (secondary) working conditions. We'll use the Harvard method to prepare you for situations like the one pictured above. Step by step, we'll pass through every stage of this famed method, which aims rather at creating a win-win situation than beating the other party. The aim of this course is twofold: 1. You are able to reproduce the theory behind negotiation skills and to apply that knowledge to specific cases as a means of preparing for the actual negotiation. 2. You are able to negotiate in an international environment, using negotiation techniques and communication skills that are suitable for that context. In other words, we'll discuss the theory and bring it into practice through cases that are specifically developed for this course.

    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!
