About Me

I am an adventurer and a bookworm so my interest in foreign languages came naturally. I lead an active life as a sailor and climber but I also enjoy spending time at home with books, films and music. My interest in psychology is satisfied in my job as all students are different and demand individual care. All in all, teaching is a perfect combination of working, learning and having fun because it opens up so many opportunities both for teacher and student.

Education

I am currently a PhD student and I specialize in linguistics. I hold B.A. in Business English and M.A. in British and American Culture and Literature as well as a certificate of completion of an intensive translation course.

Experience / Qualifications

I worked at University of Silesia for 4 years teaching students, attending conferences and organizing events. I also held a position of an English Language Coach and Translator for 8 years in several companies.

Paul is a professional with a high standaards and a deep understanding for the english language. He makes sure that the lessons are tailored to your needs and that you make progress. He has a comforting way of teaching, since practicing a foreign language can be a bit scary.
Linguistics is fun and useful for students as well as professionals, schoolchildren and anyone who is interested in languages. Linguistics can be a real eye-opener and a hobby for life. The branches of linguistics I teach include: 1. Translation theory. 2. Pragmatics. 3. Dialectology. 4. Morphology. 5. Phonetics. 6. Syntactics/grammar. 7. Psycholinguistics. 8. Historical linguistics. 9. Geographical linguistics. 10. Sociolinguistics.
Literature in English language is a very broad term. The biggest number of popular English language texts comes from the USA and the UK, however, there are many other places where English is spoken as a native language and interesting texts are produced. You can learn with me the following subjects: 1. American literature (including native American literature). 2. British literature (including Welsh and Scottish literature). 3. Selected areas of literature in English from Canada, Australia, India and South Africa.
Writing is an expression of our thoughts and emotions as well as a representation of our self. The texts we create very often shape our future and can lead to good grades at school or university, profitable business relations or even awards and fame for a successful story or poem. I provide help at all stages of the writing process: 1. Preparation. 2. Drafting. 3. Writing. 4. Revising. 5. Proofreading.

Christopher
English Conversation + Test PREP With a Native English Speaker
I am a Native English speaker from the United States and have worked with English as Second Language learners in Thailand, South Korea, Colombia as well as here in the Netherlands. My experience is with English conversation, speaking, listening, and grammar. I have helped students prepare for the TOEFL, TOEIC and Cambridge English exams. Together we can work on your English assignments, have a conversation or together find an online resource that we can work off of. I look forward to meeting you!

Thomas
Chemistry Tutor from the UK (teaching beginner to undergrad)
An enthusiastic chemistry tutor from the UK who will teach you all the aspects of chemistry which currently don't make sense. Chemistry is an incredibly enjoyable and useful subject which many students struggle to grasp at the beginning of their studies. Like a jigsaw puzzle, chemistry becomes easier and clearer the more you understand. I aim to teach you or your child in a relaxed and fun manner which hopefully allows them to understand the nuances of chemistry. I have a BSc Chemistry from the University of Nottingham and I'm currently studying my MSc in Research in Chemistry at Universiteit Leiden. Also, I studied under the International Baccalaureate so I'm able to help with anything related.

Sofia
History, Philosophy, Politics, English, and Italian
I have studied History, Philosophy, Italian (literature and language) and English (literature and language) all at an advanced level. I am currently studying International Relations at university, so I will also be able to help with tutoring on subjects such as Politics, Political Philosophy, etc. My goal is to help students understand these subjects more deeply. I acknowledge that all student learn and study differently, so I am willing to adapt my teaching methods to best suit the academic needs of the student.

Rebecca
English Language- exam preparation, Business English, conversation, general English
My name is Rebecca, and I am a CELTA-certified, native English speaker. Whether you are a complete beginner, studying for exams like IELTS, or just brushing up on general or conversational English, I am here to help! I have over 4 years experience teaching English to all levels, all age groups, and for all reasons. I believe in working with the student to find the right approach for each individual. This can vary from formal exam practice or learning through interactive elements such as film and song or project based work, to more traditional-style lessons and homework. My priority is to use language that you can use in your everyday life, and to ensure you feel at ease while you learn. I love teaching, and pride myself on my rapport with all students. In each lesson, we will cover grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation through all of the skills (reading, writing, speaking, and listening). I can provide homework, practice exams, and monthly progress reports and feedback. I look forward to working with you!

Ophirah
Hebrew, English and Dutch. All levels. Native level
Private (or small groups) lessons in a way which fits you (conversation, grammar, reading, listening, all the above). Native Hebrew, but speak English and Dutch on a native level (have been living in the Netherlands for many years, and in the USA a few years as well) and very precise in teaching, correcting, giving feedback, correct pronunciation, etc. Lessons in the Hague or online, flexible times. Material can be anything you or I have, articles, games, conversation etc.

Joanna
English for Specific Purposes/ General and Professional English
I truly believe that we are all lifelong learners and would love the opportunity to share this belief with others. I provide individual and in-company training courses in General and Professional English for adults working in different environments and industries. I also teach Business Certificates, Financial (ICFE), BULATS and IELTS courses at all levels. Thanks to over 10 year-experience of teaching, I am familiar with different teaching and learning methods and tools. I am also keen on integrating technology in the learning process. Through my teaching experience, I have also gained an ability to build positive relationships with my students and modify the lessons to their needs.

Yovo
Math, English, Sciences for young adults and children
So far I've spent a large amount of time teaching my younger sister the basics of mathematics as well as science and languages. I want to tutor people because it gives me an opportunity to help them in a way that a teacher could not. For me, it is very enjoyable to work with students of all ages that would like to learn. When I was younger, my grandfather used to help me, and I would like to pass that feeling on. During my studies I've spent some time helping younger students in my programmer(IB) with their studies. All though I was born and raised in Bulgaria, I have spent 7 years living in Austria in an English speaking environment, due to that, I speak fluent British English, as well as mother-tongue level Bulgarian and a very good German. I am able to help individuals up until 9-10th grade.

Dalton
Personal English Lessons With American Living In Den Haag!
As a born-and-raised American, I realize how valuable my natural fluency, thorough vocabulary, and intuitive diction are in an international environment such as The Hague. Having spent the first 21 years of my life in The United States, I am versed not only in formal English speaking and writing, but also in the less-often-taught colloquial language that characterizes native-speakers' language. I have experience with proof-reading, vocabulary development, articulation/inflection guidance, and colloquial grammar. I love to meet new people with their diverse perspectives and skills and I would love to meet you! I like to work together with my students to identify their linguistic needs and intentions in order to choose methods that enable them to reach their goals, quickly and effectively. Lesson structure, length, and frequency all vary depending on the needs and desires of each individual student :)
