    Engelse les voor kinderen/ General English- English for exam preparation for young learners- lessons for classes (more than 2 students)

    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!

    About Me

    I am an enthusiastic bilingual English Language Trainer who has been teaching for more than 8 years. I have a B.A. in Applied Modern Languages, with a major in English and French. Additionally, I have a TEFL certificate and I am a CELTA qualified teacher.

    I have worked extensively in foreign language schools with both children and adults, thus I am accustomed to many of the students’ demands, priorities, generally, the way in which language courses are handled. During my years working as a trainer, I was responsible for teaching general English and conversational lessons to groups of young learners and adults, as well as on a one-on-one basis. My main responsiblities consisted of a thorough needs analysis, the design of the syllabus, the actual tailoring of the lessons, and finally, the delivery of the lessons. Additionally, as a freelance English Teacher, I have prepared students to participate in national and international exams, such as PET and Cambridge YLE.

    What I can offer are fast improving students satisfied with their lessons, care, passion, and authenticity. I am empathetic, I try to tap into students’ talents and wants, and analyze them against their learning style in order to make learning more efficient and meaningful.

What does this entail? - a conversation - the use of pictures and realia - role play - music Of course, the student’s openness is a must. This assessment is followed by a very short written assessment.

    Do you ever feel that you have so much to say but people ask you to repeat what you say because they don’t quite understand you? Do you feel that you have less credibility because your thick accent stands in the way of good communication? Or do you sometimes experience intrapersonal conflict because you want to sound better and more confident? If you want to sound bolder, make a first step towards change and start taking Accent Reduction classes

    English lessons with a CELTA-qualified native English speaking teacher / Engelse lessen met een ervaren CELTA-gecertificeerde docent
    Are you looking for a qualified native English teacher (British) with extensive teaching and business experience? If so, I would love to help you! I have a very simple teaching philosophy. Every single lesson must be challenging, rewarding, and fun – as the best way to learn is with a smile on your face. I adapt our lessons together to your unique needs and goals, including: • improving your accent and pronunciation; • helping you avoid steenkool English and typical ‘Dunglish’ words; • broadening your vocabulary; and • perfecting your use of tenses. Most important of all, I can help improve your confidence, which is the key to learning any language. A speciality of mine is Business English, so I can also help with everything from preparing for an interview or speaking in meetings, to giving a presentation. While my classes are 100% in English, I can also speak Dutch and Spanish. This gives me a real insight as to why students make certain mistakes, and how to best avoid them.

    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.

    Simon
    Language Learning Coach - Learn HOW to learn a language, use it with ease and have great conversations
    “I feel stuck” These words I hear again and again, from beginners to advanced. The majority of students who come to me are frustrated. They spent many years studying languages at school. They’ve spent both their time and lots of money. Only to find themselves still struggling to form a sentence. Still struggling to be able to understand a native speaker. If you’re here then I’m assuming you share some of these same struggles. You get confused trying to memorize grammar rules, remember vocabulary, and makes sentances. You don’t know how to learn every day. You get distracted and then you feel too tired to keep going. Believe it or not, I’ve been there too and to be honest, it sucks to have another language is to possess a second soul Charlemage Now, I want you to trust me on your language journey Imagine finally knowing exactly what to do when you sit at your desk to learn a language. Imagine knowing how to learn grammar, how to remember vocabulary and make it stick, how to speak, and how to write beautiful sentences. Imagine going on holiday somewhere and interacting with locals. Laughing, eating, dancing and living life in a different language.

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.
