English and Spanish Language Acquisition Tutoring.

English and Spanish are among the top five most spoken languages in the world. In this course, you will learn to improve your oral and written skills to your language of choice through a personalized training program adapted to your needs and starting level.
As an English teacher with more than six years of experience, I am skilled in crafting engaging and instructional lesson plans for either group or individual sessions for students from a variety of ages and backgrounds. The contents and methodology of the lessons will conform to your aim and interest to learn the English or Spanish language, be it for career-wise purposes, for pleasure, or to obtain official qualifications such as IELTS, FCE, CAE, or CPE.
My goal as a docent, thus, is to make language acquisition an enriching and enjoyable process in order for the student to feel comfortable when communicating fluently in a foreign language.

Extra information

Please, bring your own notebook or laptop to class. Depending on your needs, you may bring the didactic material we will be using in the lesson (e.g., school textbook), or I can prepare the required notes and exercises that we will be using in class myself.

Angie
Custom thesis supervision / language editing (English)
I followed the Ba Linguistics at the University of Groningen. My thesis on the influence of Roland epilepsy on linguistic, cognitive and behavioral development in children has been published in the Journal of Pediatric Epilepsy. I am currently working on articles under the supervision of Dr. W. Tops and during my position as a student assistant I helped with the thesis supervision. I would like to offer my services to other Arts students so that they can also conclude their graduation project with a good feeling and a good assessment. The thesis must be in English.

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.

English Proficiency: Training and Tutoring for all Levels
I will teach you English and help you improve your proficiency, regardless of prior knowledge. I will work with you to improve your language skills, such as speaking and listening, for everyday conversation, high school/university, or professional purposes. I will teach you how to write better, improve your grammar or simply expand your vocabulary. Together, we will create a personalised plan for you to achieve your goals and I will teach by accommodating to your preferred style of learning. Expect some homework in the shape of fun assignments such as watching videos/films, reading (short) stories, or writing exercises. These are intended to help you learn and will be made to fit your schedule. With this class, you will improve English noticeably and become more confident in your language sills.

English Boost during the holidays! Summer holiday course
For anyone who would like to give their English skills a real boost during the summer holidays! Do you have some spare time during the holidays and you would like to work on your English skills? In this class you can work on your speaking skills and your vocabulary. Direct feedback is very important while learning a language, which is why it helps to have someone there to correct you in real time. I have my BA in English linguistics and can help you with how you can use your first language to get better at a second or third language you are learning. I am keeping the contents of this class a bit vague, as I want to construct lessons catered to your needs and level of proficiency. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!

Coaching and coaching of homework: all alpha subjects at every level.
I myself am from the History teacher in Windesheim, Zwolle and now I study History with Honors at the RUG. There I had a lot of fun studying and especially helping others to study. History and all alpha subjects are my strength and I can convey them to others with great pleasure. I also helped many years with learning disabilities through secondary schools, so I have become proficient in coaching and helping students plan. As far as my English is concerned ,; you can assume that it is flawless. Because I do not only study in English but have also lived and worked for several periods in English-speaking countries.

Bijles in Duits (moedertaal)/Engels/Latijn/Wiskunde
Growing up in Germany with a German mother and a Dutch father, I soon became interested in different languages. Therefore I chose for Latin, English and German in my Abitur, which I finished with cum laude. Also mathematics were part of my main subjects, which I always enjoyed doing. After finishing my Abitur in Germany, I came to The Netherlands to study Interior Architecture & Design. I have been tutoring since I was 16 and always been motivated by helping students improve in their school work and hope to be able to help you soon as well!

Almasa
English language classes for students, kids and adults
Hi, my name is Almasa. I hold BA of English language and literature, besides that, I hold TEFL-TESOL certificate for 120 teaching hours from European Center for Education. I worked as an English teacher for three years, and during that period of time I worked with diverse students, starting from kids to adults. Therefore I can teach any age. Right now I work at Bahcesehir Koleji in Istanbul. I believe that the key to good teaching is to make any topic or material comprehensive, dividing it into smaller units.
