Tutoring French to speakers of English and vice versa

Bonjour! Hello!

I hold a PhD in French literature, and I have been teaching and tutoring French and English at all levels and ages since 2003. I have particularly ample experience explaining French to speakers of English. I have been teaching at university level, as well as tutoring adults and secondary school students.

I enjoy teaching and watching my students blossom. My experience and my passion help me tailor a unique approach to any learning style and language goals that suit you best.

English language for Adults, Boost your Listening and Speaking.
I am a cheerful, optimistic and mindful teacher. I have been giving this course for more than 6 years. The class provides a flexible set of teaching materials, which can help you to improve your speaking and grammar skills at the same time. At the lesson different interactive activities, such as watching authentic videos and listening popular songs, are used to level up your English as fast as possible. Studying can be funny and fascinating. Teaching experience and friendly ambience can break down the wall of your silence. The course mission is to boost your vocabulary and communication. I provide all the materials and interesting homework tasks, which are prepared personally for every student.

I can create a learning experience (content and pace) for your needs: schoolwork, grammar, preparation for DELF and DALF tests. We can have our lessons in a relaxed atmosphere, enjoying the various pleasures of learning a language. It's not just about learning complex conjugations by heart!

Bart
Inburgering training - Intensive courses to pass the exam
Hi! My name is Bart, I am 32 years old, live in Amsterdam and I'm a Dutch teacher. Having lived in several countries I know what it's like to learn a foreign language and how challenging this can be. Especially Dutch with its unusual pronunciations and unexpected structures. During our lessons, I will explain how to deal with such issues and show you that Dutch is actually quite a structured and beautiful language (although it might not always sound that way ;). INBURGERING EXAM PREPARATION -Individual - Group The inburgering exam is often considered a long and stressful undertaking. With the right guidance and teaching, this does not have to be the case. My lessons are completely focused on the exam. I will make sure that you get familiar with the structure and the logic of the exam and exam questions. Once you understand this, it will save you a lot of time. We work on the skills and knowledge you need to pass the exam to get you ready for the exam! How I teach: 1 - Your level and objective(s) At the start, we will discuss your level and objectives. This way I can efficiently give you the help that you need. 2 - Open communication I have an open way of teaching in which I encourage students to keep telling me what their difficulties are or where they would like to improve. In my experience, this saves a lot of time and also makes the lessons more fun. 3 - Simplify instead of complicate I am good at listening and understanding why students are having difficulties with certain issues. This way I can simplify the issue and teach Dutch in an easy and understandable way. 4 - Involved I am involved with my students' objectives and am constantly looking for the best and most efficient way to make progress.

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 :)

My lessons are student-focused, designed to help you improve including highly interactive and professional learning materials. Mainly I follow the Communicative teaching approach which stimulates through different learning activities. English lessons especially suited to your interests and needs. Certified Cambridge CELTA teacher with a background in education and pedagogy. As I love learning languages, I understand the challenges my students are facing; always focusing on the student and their needs.

My methodology keeps the students thinking in English and focusing in communication and conversation; practice is key!

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 !

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.

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.

I can either teach at my place in Amsterdam downtown, at the student's place, at a café/library, or via Skype, depending on the student's needs. I give a 5e discount for two or more hours a week; I charge a 10E supplement to teach at the student's place.

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.

Lex
Tutoring Maths / Physics / English online or in the Amsterdam / Den Helder area
Hi! My name is Lex. I have been teaching math and physics for 3.5 years for high school in Den Helder. Since this year I am now a bachelor student mathematics at the University of Amsterdam, and am looking for a few new students to be able to supervise for tutoring. A few points that really set me apart from the rest are: - my tutoring experience, I have been giving 3.5 years of tutoring experience at many different levels - I work a lot less formally, this mainly ensures that the student is not afraid to ask questions or will feel "stupid" - I am very flexible with the times - I can explain everything in many different ways - the student can always send a whatsapp if something fails, and then I help him with that Online tutoring is certainly possible, and I also ensure that all notes that I make are forwarded so that they can be reviewed later. The best I recommend is a block of 2 hours in a row for tutoring, hereby I am sure that I can sufficiently help the student. If there are any questions, feel free to send me a message.
