Learn English grammar, speaking and writing skills from a native speaker!

Learning English can be a challenge, but I believe that with the proper mindset, enjoyable activities and energetic lessons, anybody can improve! Through conversational games, interesting exercises based on real life situations and role plays, the tutoring lessons I give are beneficial and entertaining. I am a fluent English speaker, who grew up in Canada and I love tutoring English, as I have already tutored one primary school boy, a 16 year old girl and a 30-year-old woman. I look forward to meeting new students!

Russian Language. Reading, Writing, Speaking. All proficiency levels.
Russian language is spoken in more than 18 countries and it is the fifth most spoken language in the world! Many people find it quite challenging to learn because of its unique alphabet, grammar and pronounciation. This class will help you to master your Russian reading proficiency, grammar and speaking skills, which will serve you as a great tool for your future communication.

Maria Alberich
Writing, Speaking, use of Spanish, Grammar from all levels
I am a student from Barcelona Spain going to university here in Groningen during this semester. Since Spanish is such an important language with lots of opportunities and being here just made me realize even more the power of this international language, I though it would be a great idea to give some classes to people that would be willing to learn more and I would be more than willing to help any day of the week. I have already been teaching other languages such as English to people from all ages so I have knowledge in this field.

Sophie
German lessons and conversation from native speaker
Hi, my name is Sophie and I am a Bachelor student in International and European law at the university of Groningen. My mother tongue is German, but I also speak English and Italian fluently and am currently learning Dutch and Spanish. I would like to help you improve your conversational German, writing, pronounciation, grammar & co. My whole school career I focused on learning languages and as language student I know what difficulties one faces, can give plenty of study tips and grammar advice. I have five years of experience working with children from 6-12 years and love to help them understand new things in a playful but efficient manner. I have experience in homework supervision and day care but also teach adults for a while now.

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.

Outside of class, I will send you exercises that I will correct each week (grammar, conjugation, writing…). -Use a particular technique based on questions / answers to apply grammar speaking. -You will also receive an access to an application for your Smartphone (to learn the vocabulary). -Use an interactive whiteboard. -We will use a shared online notebook to correct your exercises and ask me your questions at any time of the day. I propose preparation for official exams (DELF, dalf, tcf, eoi ...). Classes for beginners, intermediate or advanced levels. Preparation of conferences or talks for business. Job interviews. The class is a bit different when I work with children or teenagers. I use interactive websites and letters. If you want a young, organized, dynamic and passionate teacher, call me or write me!

Turkish Lessons (In-Person OR Online) for Adults and Kids from an Experienced and Patient Teacher For All Levels-Learn&Practice&Speak!
I have been teaching Turkish for 17 years. I started to teach when I was studying Turkish Language and Literature. I worked in a language school and at the universities, I suppose that I gained success. 😊 My achievements are directly proportional to my students’ success. My students are mostly the teachers, consulate officers, international business people, and also travellers. I feel rewarded when I witness their progress in applying their Turkish language skills to their daily lives. Over the years, I have met hundreds of people from all over the world, taught Turkish, and told them about Istanbul and Turkey. Those people told me about their countries and learned to express themselves in Turkish. For example, I ask them: “Do you like Istanbul?” in Turkish it is “İstanbul’u senior museum?” or “ Traffic is very bad in Istanbul!”, “İstanbul’ da çok Trafik var!” The basic but correct conversation is really important for self-confidence in any language. If a learner can master basic sentence forms, the rest will come much easier. On the other hand, making mistakes is also very important. Especially, a learner can not speak without making a mistake the first and second time. My students are always varied and have diverse learning skills. My professionalism also allows me to tailor language education according to individual interests, needs, and capacities. In the classroom, I hold firm three main principles: first, providing a comfortable environment, second, creating an encouraging atmosphere, and third, establishing a collaborative instruction model. I consider that I developed an aptitude for making learning Turkish to become much easier, enjoyable and practical for my students. I use a book prepared by a university in Turkey. I share the pdf version of the book for my lessons. I also adapt the materials according to the learner’s needs and support the book with my authentic materials. Even though I use a communicative approach, all my lessons are guided by a solid knowledge of grammar. On the online lessons, I send an e-mail after every lesson. That word file includes a vocabulary list, sentences (corrected and uncorrected versions, you can compare both of them easily), grammar point and homework for revision. In this way, you can find everything in a file well organized. When we have a face to face lesson, I give a hard copy of this list after every lesson. The lessons could be at my home office or in my student's house or office. I sometimes meet with my students in a coffee shop, I try to prefer silent places. :) How learning a new language opens a new window into a person, teaching Turkish is also the same for me! I was always interested in languages - I could speak a bit of Italian and learned Persian grammar except English. I always think about Istanbul -I was born and grew up here- it is a good place for self-improvement. First and foremost, Istanbul hosts international people coming from around the world. It is considering to me, I am lucky because I have one of the pleasant professions. When teaching Turkish, promoting cross-cultural awareness forms an important part of my lessons. Teaching the language involves both the students and myself in a dynamic conversation about our cultural backgrounds. Teaching Turkish is in fact not only teaching a language but also teaching a culture. I am interested in cinema, music and like visiting museums. I always share the activities with my students. I also teach Turkish to young learners. I started to study Child Development at Istanbul University as a second university in 2018. We say in Turkish, “Studies have no age!" If you want to speak Turkish well, please contact me. It is fun, and we will smile during the lesson!

Assert yourself by the work of the voice and the oral expression / Paris
The current professional world pushes us to always look valiant and efficient. But the voice can suddenly fail us and we hear screaming, inside us: "I'll never get there, I'm not up to it!" These silent cries block our expression and force us to remain spectators. of those who arrive there: to speak, to master their voice, their body, their speech ... How would it be otherwise, when we never learned these techniques and did not train? Public speaking has, for many of us, more naturalness. Today, and we can rejoice, oral expression is up to date in our Western societies. The work that this effort requires is known and it is important to be able to share its vulnerabilities with someone you trust, who will make you rediscover the pleasure behind fear! My specificity as a teacher? I transmit an accompaniment adapted to each person, resulting from my theatrical practice, vocal and my constant research on the language. My teaching experiences led me to be attentive to the problems related to the speech of women, particularly spoiled in terms of cultural obstacles! Others may also be happy to experiment with me a different approach, departing from the usual male injunctions. My goal is to find the singularity of each voice, which is that of each being. The solutions that you will put in place to make you feel more comfortable will emerge from you, your work guided with kindness and involvement. Want to try this joyous adventure? Welcome !

Presentation Design, Speech Writing and Orathorical Practice
They say talking in public is the no1 fear in the world. How about preparing for it intensively, so when the moment comes, you will be confident, engaged and clear, even if your knees are still shaking? I have been coaching debate and public speaking to young people for 4 years. I have a lot of experience in speech writing and helping others prepare for talking in front of a crowd. What we can achieve together: - learn to compose a good speech -> with all the necessary elements in order to have a persuasive effect - design a killer presentation -> complicated ideas sometimes require visual aid for the public. Learn to let go of comic sans and how not to undermine a good talk with outdated graphic work - practice speaking -> 99%blood sweat and tears. I can help you present over, and over and over again until you are satisfied and confident that nothing can go wrong. Remember that all the great speakers of this world made history by practice, not by intuition or accident. My main goal for this course is that you would acquire autonomy to write your own speeches and manage presentations with less effort by being more and more persuasive.
