Learn French or Dutch by taking private lessons or in a group session at your pace.

My name is Arisa, I am 30 years old. I have studied French here in Amsterdam and I have worked as a teacher for several years.
Currently I'm running a freelancing business called pidgin tutoring, where I specialise in French and Dutch.

My main goal is to help my students improve either their French or their Dutch and to pass all of their exams. And to prove that learning these languages can be fun :)

Looking forward to meeting new students! A bientôt en tot gauw :)

About Me

Hello futur student,

As a child I always liked to read and to write. As a child I also knew that I really wanted to learn French. During my life I have vistited France many times and I simply fell in love with this language. You could say that the french language and languages in general are my passion. While I was studying at the university of Amsterdam, I also took courses on Italian and Spanish. In the future I would like to study Turkish and Arabic. Languages are so important to connect with other people and to discover so many new things. Let's study together!

Education

I went to the Gymnasium from 2002-2008 (during this time I have graduated in English, level CAE)
I have studied French at the University of Amsterdam, Bachelor 2008-2012
I have a MA in Literature (French Surrealism) 2013

Experience / Qualifications

I have taught children and adults from when I was 18 years old, so I have a lot of experience. I have taught French at several high schools from 2013-2018 after having finished my studies.

Reviews (1)

Arisa was heel goed met het begrijpen hoe mijn Engelstalig zoontje (6) het beste de Nederlandse taal onder de knie zou krijgen, dus al spelenderwijs heeft Arisa dit mogelijk gemaakt. Ze was heel erg creatief en mijn zoontje heeft met plezier de Nederlandse les geleerd. Wij zullen vaker Arisa voor lessen gaan vragen. Heel erg bedankt Arisa!!!
Iedereen heeft er wel mee te maken: negatieve gedachten. Wanneer je ze te veel en te vaak hebt, kunnen ze je belemmeren in je dagelijks leven bijvoorbeeld in je studie, op school, op werk of in relaties. Uit jarenlange eigen ervaring met dit soort gedachten waardoor ik uiteindelijk zelfs een depressie kreeg, wil ik graag mijn kennis met jou delen en samen een persoonlijke aanpak opstellen om deze gedachten te tackelen. Dit zal gedaan worden aan de hand van persoonlijke gesprekken en het bestuderen van relevante literatuur. Ik heb dit hele proces ook zelf doorlopen, met alle terugvallen die daarmee gepaard gaan. Ik geef concrete tips en ideeën die je naar eigen keuze kunt toepassen om jezelf te motiveren!

Learn how to speak Spanish or French from scratch or improve your level
I adapt lessons to the student´s language level and specific requirements. As a young, enthusiastic student, my goal is mainly to encourage and challenge the student to achieve his/her goals while making the student feel comfortable and confident.

Jade
Dynamic French lessons for all levels and ages // IB FLE, SL and HL Level
My name is Jade, I am a friendly and motivated native French and English student. Can flexibly adapt to all needs and levels of french. I have a great amount of experience with teaching languages to students and some with conversational lessons to adults. Having just graduated in the International Baccalaureate, I realise the level of stress students may feel and am very determined to help them reach their goal with confidence! I can fully prepare students for their oral and written exams as well as any homework and tests throughout the year.

Miguel
Private lessons of French (Français langue étrangère)
I am a former student of the Ecole Normale Supérieure of Paris, and propose private lessons of French for both entry and advanced levels. These gradual and comprehensive lessons have a twofold purpose : make you feel comfortable with French practice (expression and understanding) and make you progressively independent in your use of the language.

Nicolas
French Tutoring : Learn the French language and culture, tutoring for homework
Hello and welcome ! This class is aimed to teach French to children from 4 to 18 years old. I provide help for your French homework and I can teach you the basis of the French language and culture. In addition, I am a native French, so I can also bring you my experience with the customs and culture of France. Therefore, I can adapt myself in any circumstances, and on the basis of your needs.

Verbeter je schrijfvaardigheid in tien tot twintig trainingen
Heb jij moeite om je gedachten helder onder woorden te brengen? Lukt het je maar niet om je boodschap foutloos op papier te krijgen? Zit je met je handen in het haar als je een formele tekst moet schrijven? In dat geval kan ik je van dienst zijn. Ik ben neerlandicus en werk al negen jaar als taaldocent op verschillende hogescholen. Bovendien heb ik meer dan zeventien jaar schrijfervaring. Ik weet dan ook precies hoe ik je moet helpen om je schriftelijke taalbeheersing op niveau te krijgen. Op basis van mijn eigen didactische kennis en onderwijservaring heb ik een cursus ontwikkeld waarin we eerst teruggaan naar de basis, van waaruit je vervolgens stap voor stap leert om je gedachten naar een heldere tekst te vertalen. Het is een intensieve cursus, dat zeker, maar na afloop heb je dan ook het gevoel dat je opnieuw hebt leren schrijven.

Joana
Italian, English, Spanish, French Tutoring. Pick a language and let's speak it!
I specialize in tutoring English, Italian, Spanish and French. I recently studied to become an English teacher through the intensive CELTA (Certificate in teaching English to speakers of other languages) from Cambridge University and I own a bachelor degree in English, Spanish and French language focusing on translation and interpreting. My mother tongue is Italian. I enjoy planning and delivering interactive, student centred lessons where the students do most of the talking. At the end of the lesson, I love to see the students communicating with each other or with me directly by making use of their new language skills.

Estellei
Learn French with a native speaker, professional teacher graduated from The Sorbonne
My belief is that each student is different and requires a tailor made lesson to meet that student’s needs and goals. Every class is personalised for your own profile and is adapted as needed. I give priority to conversation, convinced that even from the very first day, one can start to communicate in the new language and thus gain confidence to go on. I base my courses on the four essential competencies: speaking, listening, writing and reading, always focusing on your personal goals and motivation. I progressively integrate phonetics, grammar, conjugation, vocabulary in the courses which always include practical exercises. You will also learn a lot about the culture as it is deeply linked to the language. The pedagogic materials I choose are mostly created for native speakers : texts from literature, newspapers, radio podcasts, videos, songs.... Indeed, I am convinced that the learning process has to tackle « real subjects », as languages are alive and constantly changing. My main challenge is to help the learners to be able to « think » in the second language. The debate is the heart of my classroom, but always in a playful way, through many role games — for me learning a language is first and foremost a great joy !

Rob

Due to my broad experience and high general level of knowledge, in addition to pedagogical / didactic support, I can also provide extra lessons in all alpha subjects of secondary education and guidance of students in the preparation of exams and writing theses.

Lily

I have over 5 years of experience in tutoring, and am very passionate about education. I adapt my classes to each pupil; together, we work out a teaching plan based on your exact needs and goals, and from there comes success! My specialist subjects are modern languages (French and Spanish), literatury analysis, film studies, urban planning and preparing for Oxbridge assessments. I also offer tutoring in History and Critical Thinking. I offer tutoring at all levels, from primary school upwards to university, and beyond, depending on the subject. If you need help with any of my subjects, don't hesitate to get in touch! I hope that we can work together very soon!

Student in foreign languages ​​and international relations offers French courses in Amsterdam. I have already taught this subject as well as English to students of all ages and I have been able to develop effective teaching methods. I make students work with spelling as well as grammar and vocabulary, combining clear theoretical lessons and exercises to put their knowledge into practice as they go.

Kimberley
Learn french with a native speaker - adapted to all levels
Hello, I am a french graphic designer giving flexible french lessons to all levels and all goals! I have a background in art and literature and therefor would be interested into taking the lessons to another context than the academic one. I already have a previous experience in teaching french and would be pleased again to share my culture and language. I can give adapted lessons from complete beginners to advanced ones! According to the student's wishes the lessons can be focused on the preferred aspects (conversation, vocabulary, grammar, writing, formal writing, etc.)

Marcel
Learning french language through different cultural approaches
This class aims to teach french language through different forms of study rather than a classic academic approach to language learning. For example those methods can be expressed in oral conversations, study of texts, art pieces, or movies in french, and of course more conventional teaching. I believe that a language is learnt better in it's cultural context and applications rather than though a decontextualized approach. If you are interested don't hesitate to ask any question.

Batoul
EXCITING FRENCH COURSES !!!! ALL LEVELS AND OBJECTIVES
Through a playful and simple pedagogical approach, I will help you achieve the desired objectives: - The art of speech (hold a conversation) - Grammar and conjugation - Training and preparation for interrogations / exams My objective; help the student to progress and appreciate French.

Charlie
French course by a native speaker : learn french through different approaches
The purpose of this class is to learn french through the french culture and oral conversation. There will be different approaches to learning french : activities related to the french culture (cooking crêpes,...) a more conventional method of learning (for grammar for example, if needed), oral conversation (about actuality, the culture, art,...), and possibly the study of books, texts, movies in french. During the class I will mostly speak french, and I consider oral conversation a very important part of the class. If you need to focus on grammar, orthography, or conjugation it is not a problem at all and the exercises will evolve with your specific needs and level. Usually I estimate your level and the points we need to work on during the first class so we know on what to focus on. If you feel the need to learn even more, I will also give homework such as specific grammar exercises, and I will recommend to you some books to read in french or movies to watch depending on your interests.
