Private English Courses in Academic Writing, Foundational English, & Referencing and Citations

I'm an international Msc in Psychology student in The Netherlands, a native speaker of English and have experience working in various academic contexts as a research assistant and lab facilitator, as well as some industry experience as a personal aide and copywriter. I empathise with the struggle others have when trying to study English either for general use or academically.
I wish to push students of the language to improve their skills with personally-catered lessons to suit their needs. As such, you as the student will direct the content and extend of your lessons, from studying style and homework choices, to study location and timing of lessons.

Generally, your lessons can include but are not limited to the following areas:
-Academic writing
- Understanding essay structure
- Referencing and citation skills
- Idea synthesis
- Research and literature search
-General English for beginners to intermediate levels
- Conversational speech
- Vocabulary, syntax and grammar

My classes are for you if:
- You're entering college or university in English-directed courses
- Referencing and citations are confusing to you
- You need a refresher on English in general
- You desire personally-catered lessons that will improve your academic writing skills for your field (e.g. writing research papers, literature review)
- You're looking for a passionate and friendly instructor to guide your learning.

Not to worry if you're a beginner or have some experience already but need to brush up. Just explain your situation and the lessons will accommodate to your needs. Lesson timings are highly flexible and can be negotiated and adjusted to match changing schedules.
Moreover, if you instead need assistance in text correction, and proofreading your work as part of your lessons or separately, I am happy to oblige!

*Lessons are conducted primarily in English. (I can speak Mandarin Chinese and Malay as well if it suits the student)

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
My name is Jeffery Yeow Teh, a Belgian / Malaysian-Chinese, with English as my native language. Coming from a mixed cultural heritage, I grew to appreciate cultural diversity and
how it affects all aspects of life. Throughout my university life I was constantly involved in
research assistant work both casually and professionally. Over time, this led to a strong
inclination towards applied fields of psychology, especially the focus on psychology in the
workplace and organizations. A side effect of this being that I was also building strong English skills.

A pet passion of mine has been teaching and tutoring, and I enjoy teaching students that are open about their study goals. This allows me to plan lessons that will most benefit my students to make the best use of their time.

I personally enjoy a good conversation and am happy to discuss various topics with my students to help broaden their vocabulary and usage of English to various areas.

English as a Second Language for Students & Adults
Mastering the English language can open many opportunities for you. The beginner and intermediate courses I offer will equip you with the basics of English grammar and vocabulary you'll need to read, write, and speak English. Seeing as I am a non-Dutch speaker, this means that the duration of the classes will be conducted in English, which will help improve your language skills as you have no other choice but to speak English with me.

Tessa
English for everyone! For beginners and more advanced speakers!
I will teach you English no matter what your current level of proficiency is. I will help you focus on different aspects like grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, langauge use, and more. If you want to work on your writing skills, I can also review your work and help you get better at writing. To start we will discuss your experience with English to see what your current level of English is. We will set a goal, the level of English you wish to acquire, and the lessons will build to that. Do expect some sort of homework, or some form of exercise, mostly in the form of a funny video or show to watch, but if you want to focus on writing skills as well, it will also include writing tasks. I will personally create the lessons to fit your current level and will work with you to reach your goal!

Michal
English writing and speaking support for all levels.
I am very good at problem solving. Therefore this class is about the individual student and giving them the support they need to improve and succeed. This will be less of a class and more of a personalised private tutor format whereby I will assist students with whatever current problems they face. It can range from teaching better essay writing skills or how to be a better public speaker. Depending on the needs of the student I will adjust my teaching accordingly. If the student needs assistance with a particular homework assignment I will help them through it. I aim to create a nurturing and comfortable environment for my students, I believe students have enough stress understanding all their current work and I do not want to pile on more. Therefore the class is not about giving homework and completing tasks as it is to create real and systemic improvement in the student and their confidence in the subject.
