Scary class for adults with low-bandwidth contact, very flexible.

Ahoy!

Thank you for wanting to practice, learn, read or prepare for exams in English. My name is Klaudia and I am an English freak / linguist. I have been teaching children, teens and adults for 5 years. 2016-2017 I had stayed in London where I learned my neutral accent. In 2019, I got TEFL 120h and from one year I teach professionally.

Lessons are always tailored to what you need. I believe in individual attention. What interests you, we'll talk about it in English. I prepare for every lesson and expect the same from you, that's why I always send you emails or messages so that your English stays active in your head even outside of class.

While class we use a number of assistance resources: handouts, interactive media web sites, games, music, comics, books, news and all.

The biggest benefit of my approach is flexibility. I make slots to use in your calendar. The more you take a class, the faster you will see the progress. I think one lesson a week is fine, but one lesson every 2 weeks is an absolute minimum.

Learn quickly when you want and enjoy using English.

I prefer to teach online because of corona, but I will come to you up to 20 km from Amsterdam.

About Me

Hello there! My name is Klaudia and I am a linguistics student with a passion for grammar. Language is an everchanging medium and that fascinates me. I wonder how it shapes cultures and communication. I have lived in two countries outside my country of origin for that reason.

I attained English proficiency certificate in 2017 and the teaching certificate online in March 2020. I've studied and worked in the academic environment since 2017.

Teaching is a very reciprocal activity that not only gives satisfaction at both ends of the video call, but also allows for growth of both parties and makes room for more.
As a personal tutor I always focus on the individal needs of students and as I get to know them I try to tailor the lessons in an engaging way. For that reason I offer the first 30 minutes assesement gratis, to get to know each other and find out if we 'click' on this educational foot.

All languages in the world are connected and I find it fascinating to draw the connections between them by getting to know words in other languages. I try to incorporate it into my way of teaching, as some students, just like me, find it a good way to memorize vocabulary. A little bit of etymology hasn't hurt anyone! With children, however, I would use a different teaching tactic.

English is a 'lingua franca' in todays' world and lets you see this world more broadly.
You really should, can and will know it well!

Why not practice it with me online, whenever it fits your schedule?

Education

> Linguistics Bachelors of Arts at the University of Amsterdam

It's my first degree, but hopefully not the last one, as I would like to explore the field of academic writing and education.

Experience / Qualifications

> 120-hour TEFL course online
> I've tutored secondary school students
> I've tutored adults in ESL courses
> Long experience in the classroom setting

Nice teacher
Very friendly and pro
Heel leuk en motiverend.
English has become the Lingua Franca of our times. It's a valuable skill to possess, beneficial for everyone. It comes handy in the ever-developing world that we live in and opens doors to many places, also in the mind. Additionally, bilingualism enhances the cognitive skills. Whether you'd like to improve your speaking skills and break the language barrier or you wish to prepare better for an English exam, I come to an aid. I'm a 3-year Linguistic student, I've achieved the C1+ levels in English, on the CEFR scale. I have 2 years of experience living in London, where I acquired RP (received pronunciation) and 3 years of experience in the International Academia (Amsterdam). My linguistic background gives me the capacity to explain the sounds and various processes of the language, from a perspective many natives do not know. In teaching, I practice the holistic approach. It is my belief that language is for people of every age and education, but I'm aware that everyone deserves a personal approach. That's why I offer the first meeting unpaid, so we can get acquainted and discuss the expectations of both sides. In classes, I will try to raise your confidence and knowledge in English, on 4 levels of proficiency: Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing. I will focus on your strengths and teach you how to use those to your advantage in learning. We will elicit your potential and together achieve the goals you set for yourself.

Arithmetic and mathematics for primary school students
Is your child in primary school and does maths require tutoring? Does he think math is stupid? Turn me on! With fun and funny tricks and mnemonics, your child will quickly change his mind. Creating a good pedagogical climate and building a rich learning environment is always my goal. I stimulate the students to discover autonomously, to discuss together, to experience and to come to conclusions. My job is not to fill a barrel, but to light a fire. I am also constantly working to keep my students in the zone of closest development. In this way I promote their constant development and growth.

About myself: I'm a 21-year-old third-year linguistics student in Amsterdam. I am fluent in French, English, and Romanian, and have a good knowledge of Italian and Dutch. As well as being fluent in French and other languages, my linguistics background gives me a lot of understanding of how different minds respond better to different approaches in teaching. Looking to get into education and teaching after my graduation, I am a serious yet fun teacher and I'm confident I could help you take your French to the next level, by adapting my tutoring to exactly what you need!

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 :)

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.

English Language & Literature, and IB Exam Prep for All Ages
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.
