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 :)

About Me

I am a fully qualified English tutor with 8 years experience teaching a range of ages from 6 to 18+.

Having studied both English Literature and Philosophy up to degree level, I am passionate about these subjects as well as making them accessible and interesting for others!

I love working with my students in a tailor-made learning environment to help them achieve not only their desired goal, but to be able to take what they have learned away with them into the future!

I always strive to inspire a sense of passion and enjoyment in my students - it is my belief that excelling in a subject comes from a true understanding of it, not just learning the stock answers to 'pass the exam'.

I work with the student, and parents, to make lessons tailored to the individual, instilling core skills that transcend the subject we are studying together. This allows the individual to take what they have learned and apply it to all areas of their education and life outside of our lessons together.

Fatjon
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.

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 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.

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.

Having obtained a Bachelor’s in Literature and Philosophy, I can also teach students how to analyse literary and philosophical texts in both English and French. I already helped students obtain their French Baccalaureate with very satisfying grades (17/20 for example). If you have any questions or needs, I am open and ready to answer any questions very rapidly!

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.

Vuoi parlare l'italiano? Italiano con Rob per tutti
Ciao, my name is Roberto :) 
I graduated in Political and Economic Science at the University of Milan. After working for a year for an American company in Milan, I moved to Australia, where I have worked, studied and traveled for two years.
It has been an incredible experience! I had the opportunity of visiting beautiful places, discovering so many different cultures and developed myself from a personal and professional point of view.
Since two years, I have been living in Haarlem - a wonderful city close to Amsterdam - and to the coast 🌊 - in the Netherlands. I love teaching and helping people to find out more about Italian culture, history, and arts. I would love to use all the modern techniques of teaching that I learned and practiced them with you. Teaching is an extraordinary passion! Parliamo italiano!
