English, conversational and prep for official tests

My lessons are completely conversation-based. This can be a bit scary and uncomfortable at first, but. as we say in the Netherlands, practice makes art! The more English you allow into your life, the more naturally it will come to you and the better and more confident you will become in using English. All lessons are tailored to the personal wishes of the students in combination with my assessment of what is needed to improve :)

Extra information

I have everything that is necessary, and can provide materials. The only thing I recommend is to have a notebook and a pen at hand, taking notes is useful!

About Me

I have been using English for over 15 years, and for the past 5 years it is my main language in daily life (among others because of my work, education, native English speaking partner and friends). I have about 4 years of experience in teaching it as a second language, for 2 of which I was located in Madrid.
I focus on the general improvement of the English of my students (listening, speaking, reading and writing) and help them prepare for official English-level exams like PET, FCE, CAE, TOEFL, TOEIC, IELTS (ISE, GESE). Besides that I make sure to create a good ambiance during my lessons because I know how important it is to be comfortable to get the most out of your studies. My students from Madrid were so satisfied that I have continued teaching some of them through skype after I came back to the Netherlands :)

Education

UvA Student BA Philosophy at the moment, aiming to start a MA in Logic in 2021.
Prior to that I worked on my TEFL certificate, I went to Art Academy and finished my secondary education with a specialization in human sciences.

Experience / Qualifications

I have done a three-month internship teaching English in Madrid in 2015.
Received my Advanced TEFL certification that same year.
Experience teaching for 4 years nonstop.

English Conversation lessons, be prepared to talk .
Many people can struggle or feel uncomfortable when learning a new language. I teach English conversation and use exercises to highlight the basics to get through a conversation. There can be nothing worse than having t go through grammar tables after a day at work. I work on speed of delivery, pronunciation, simplicity. If you need to give a speech in business English then this can be daunting for many people, there is no need to be afraid, take the first step and contact me. The lesson usually overruns by 10 minutes.

Giorgia
Learn Italian and/or English. All levels, no pre requirements needed
I am bilingual, fluent in Italian and English. I have lived and studied both in Italy and in the United States. I have tutored both languages before. I have been and I still am a student myself, therefore I try to keep my classes fun and very interactive. I will approach the lessons according to the learning style that suits you best and I am open to new ideas on how to make it more interesting and easy to follow. I do assign homework but it is usually some "hands-on" material, such as watching a movie in the language I am teaching you or learning a song. I believe that these approaches are the best when trying to learn something new. This also depends on your needs and the reasons why you are learning the language. If you are interested in learning for professional purposes then the sessions would be set up a bit differently and so will be the homework.
