    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 for students of all levels and ages!
    My name is Anne, I am Russian, but have spent more than 10 years in England, where I also studied. I teach English to non-native students of all ages. I have been tutoring English for the last 4 years. I am really passionate about languages, and studying some (Spanish, Italian, and French) myself and about teaching English, to others. I teach using creative and new methods. I feel that it is important that each student, at whatever level of English, feels motivated and engages fully in the classes, I make it my aim to keep each class entertaining, as well as beneficial for the English level. My timetable is quite flexible, and, when I am on holiday, I can always keep up the lessons via webcam. I will gladly help study for any exams, or just help improve the level, fluency and grammar.

    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.

    Academic English, Conversational English, Customer Service English
    The Academic English classes are for university students or professionals who want to develop the skills and fluency necessary to communicate in an academic or professional context. I always conduct 'Needs Analysis' during the first meeting so that I can tailor lessons to suit your exact needs. Speaking, writing, reading and listening skills will all be practised during classes, unless you wish to focus specifically on your problem areas. Grammar and vocabulary are incorporated into the lessons as part of skill development. The Conversational English class focuses on oral fluency and listening skills. You will build vocabulary and an understanding of grammar through lots of speaking and listening. The aim is to get learners conversing in English naturally, with flexibility and confidence. The lessons also aim to improve students ability to understand spoken English in a range of everyday contexts. The Customer Service English classes are for people who require English to work in the hospitality industry. In these lessons, we work on oral fluency and your ability to understand customers, management and co-workers. Some other areas that can be practised include resume writing, interview skills, customer service skills and many more.
