English for Students and Adults (academic writing, grammar and speaking)

I am studying my bachelor fully in English and I previously learnt English from different institutions, building a solid and extensive knowledge. This class is particularly suitable for (lower-) intermediate and basic learners who want to learn English at academic level or for working purposes, and for students who would like some extra training before their exams!

According to your preferences, I will focus on speaking and conversation, or on grammar and academic writing. I will organize homework and self-studying according to your learning objectives because my goal is that you will always enjoy learning Italian!

About Me

EN Dear all!
I am from Italy and currently studying for my bachelor in Amsterdam. I love teaching languages and that's why I decided to become a tutor. My classes are informal and friendly. We will talk about what you like in the language you want to learn. Depending on your personal goals, my classes will combine a mix of grammar theory and exercises, vocabulary building and conversation, reading material and writing practice. Whether you aim at learning Italian or English for academic or working purposes, or just for fun and personal development, I will tailor the lessons according to your needs. But we will always choose topics that suit your interests. In the end, what matters is that you keep the interest high and enjoy your time learning!
I hope to meet you soon! Ciao

IT Ciao cari!
Sono originariamente di Torino ma studio ad Amsterdam per la triennale. Mi piace molto insegnare lingue, per questo ho deciso di diventare tutor. Offro lezioni informali e amichevoli. Gli argomenti si baseranno sui vostri interessi personali e, a seconda dei vostri obiettivi, le lezioni comprenderanno un mix di teoria grammaticale combinata a esercizi, conversazione e espansione del vocabolario, materiali di lettura e pratica di scrittura. Sia che puntiate ad imparare l'italiano o l'inglese per motivi accademici o lavorativi, o solo per divertimento e crescita personale, personalizzerò le lezioni in base alle vostre necessità. Ma sceglieremo sempre argomenti che si adattino ai vostri interessi. Alla fine l'importante è che continuiate a divertirvi ad imparare.
Spero di sentirvi presto! Ciaoo

English Writing, Tutoring, Assignment help, Essays
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.

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.

Learn English Grammar And Paragraph Writing for Beginners, Intermediates and advanced (A1/A2/B1/B2/C1/C2)
These sessions are focused on English for people who encounter challenges in writing and lack correct grammar. We would develop situational vocabulary, corresponding verbs and adverbs that help transmit more precision when writing. Our mission would be to see where you currently are in the language, strengthen any weak points and create an awareness about points that need extra attention. These classes tend to take place in a more relaxed yet fun and stimulating environment. I constantly provide feedback to students about their progress and assign homework to ameliorate the practical and theoretical aspects of the English.This class is all about making English accessible and easy to learn to all through a variety of social and interactive stimulus..

NATIVE ENGLISH LESSONS: FACE TO FACE, ONLINE OR GROUPS!
Languages are a very important tool nowadays! Thats why I am here to either beginning to learn it or improve what you already learnt... I am an International Journalism student majoring in English Literature living in Amsterdam/Madrid however raised in Dublin Ireland but born in Madrid Spain!! I have been tutoring for 6 years now and have always done it freelanced however last year I taught English in a Language Academy in Madrid and was teaching for IELTS, the TOEFL and TOEIC tests, and the Cambridge English to people of all ages. Some evenings I also taught little kids starting from the age of 4 years old playing games doing arts and crafts at home etc My classes are focused on Grammar and Speaking giving my student various examples of vocabulary and expressions. I offer face to face and online classes one of my main goal to maintain in every class is conversating in English all the way through, (conversation lessons) for intermediate and advance students. (I like to have 20 mints of our first class conversational just to get to know my student well and see hers or his expectation for the future classes) I normally work with my own materials such a notebook or online books and exercises. Once the class is done I send my student all of the material we have done that day with exercises to practise. I am also available for any extra help by message :) Would love to hear from you soon! :)

Klaudia
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.

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.

Estella
English and German tutoring for every level (native speaker)
Hey Everyone! I am offering lessons to help you improve or freshen up your English/German no matter what your current level is. To start we will first talk about your experience and current skill level and then look at where you could improve on. We will discuss which areas you want to focus on, where I can prepare materials for you to get you more secure in speaking and writing the language depending on what your goal is! I will then personally create and structure the lessons for you and help you wherever possible :) Some sort of Homework or exercise will be introduced but of course in a fun way. If you want to focus on writing I can give you practice writing exercises and we can go over these together! I am very flexible with the time so just leave me a message I would appreciate it :)

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.

Christopher
English conversation classes : speak like a true Brit
Hello! Hola! Привет! My name is Christopher and I’m a British person with a passion for languages (yes, it can happen…) Whether you’re a beginner or a decent speaker looking to broaden your horizons, 

I will help you better express yourself in English. I offer friendly informal classes, with a focus on conversation and pronunciation. 
I can also help you with grammar and vocabulary and all the technical stuff.
 Together we’ll develop a study plan which suits your needs. And along the way, we’ll explore the weird and wonderful world of British culture.

 With over twenty years in advertising, I’m an expert communicator in English. 
I’m bilingual (French) and have studied Dutch, Spanish and Russian, so I have a good feel for the learning experience. Together with my teacher training, I hope to apply these skills towards helping others. 

I firmly believe that good communication can make the world a better place. 

Hope to see you on Skype sometime soon :)

Andi
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!
