    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!

    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.

    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. As of February 2018, I have become an Accent Modification Instructor. This has made it possible for me to aid my students by giving them individualized advice on how to better certain aspects of their pronunciation. 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.

So whether you’re studying at VMBO, MBO, HAVO, or VWO, or are simply looking to sharpen your skills, don’t hesitate to contact me.
    A 30-minute assessment will allow me to have a better idea of your level, capabilities and needs. This test is designed for all ages using the communicative approach. 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 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 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.
