English Course Which Will Make You More Desirable to Employers
If you have ambitions to become an international businessperson, it’s essential that you’re able to speak English fluently. Even if you’re not thinking of living and working abroad, that doesn’t mean you won’t find English a helpful language to put on your CV. There may well be plenty of English-speaking multinational corporations with offices in your home country. What’s more, careers that involve lots of travel or international exposure, use English as their official language, and many employers in these sectors are likely to require evidence of a certain level of proficiency in English before they will consider employing you. This means that if you can speak English, you’ll find that you have a greater number of possible careers to choose from. Have I convinced you yet? If you’ve been inspired to learn English, consider enrolling in my course!

Brady
Spanish, English and Mandarin Chinese Tutor Online and Offline
Please send me a message to know my availability in more detail! hey! I'm Brady. Nice to meet you! 👋🏼 I was born in the Netherlands but moved to Spain, the Dominican Republic, and later to China. I'm a native of Spanish and English and proficient in Mandarin Chinese (HSK6). I completed my Chinese studies in 2019 in Harbin, China. I have been working as a Spanish, English, and Mandarin Chinese tutor online for two years and work at the Confucius Institute of the Dominican Republic as a mandarin tutor throughout 2019-2020. Over the last year, I have had over 250 students from all over the world and 1000 lessons. More than 100 out of 250 students are kids aged 5-15. For the kids, I will always prepare some extra material, and having a parent during the first lesson is always recommended ;) My main aim is to make you feel comfortable during our lessons, create a comfortable setting for you, and modify the class to your liking. I can teach in all three languages, so I'll make sure communication is excellent between us all the time!

Oxbridge Applications (University applications to Oxford and Cambridge)
Oxford and Cambridge are the UK’s most elite universities and, especially for a European student, far easier to reach with the proper support. This is what I am here to provide: help writing an ideal personal statement fit for a future Oxbridge offer holder, aid with UCAS, interview practice and advice on any possible question you could have. As a European Oxford student myself, I know the challenges and hardships of an Oxbridge application and aim to make the entire process easier for you. This will not only better your chances of securing an offer, but also make this already stressful time a bit less confusing.

I have been an International teacher for the last fifteen years, working in Spain, Thailand, Prague and now The Hague. Literacy is not just about the written word.

Children will learn authentic filmmaking skills and techniques. These will be embedded within a scheme of work using a creative and thematic approach with Film, Art and Literacy at its core. Children will have the opportunity to critique, review and make films and will learn about the five stages of developing, planning, producing and exhibiting a movie. They will learn about: Basic Equipment Needs*Storyboarding and Screenwriting* iPad and Video Camera Training* Acting* Animation*Directing* Sound, Lighting and Editing Techniques*Set Construction and Props*Makeup and Hair*Costuming*The Shoot* Publicity*Marketing our Movie*The Premiere*

Bernardo
Conversational partner and or written support in Spanish, English and German.
A language is the key to communication and in the interconnected, globalized world that we find ourselves in, a language can really broaden your horizons and extend your web. In addition, a new language also brings culture with it and a vast array of new traveling opportunities. However, despite all of these advantages, learning a language can be challenging and demotivating, in particular when it is studied without being in touch with native speakers and the corresponding culture that a language brings with it. The language tutoring provided will be personalized to the student's needs and will provide the cultural context that comes with a language, allowing for a more enjoyable and interactive language acquisition process. If you are looking to improve your conversational skills or even written proficiency, This is the class for you.

Individual or Small Group Lessons to Learn French (all levels) + Conversation classes + Literary club
IMMERSIVE FRENCH COURSES / PERSONALIZED INSTRUCTION - I offer attentive and demanding teaching, but I am convinced that this is only really possible in a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere - you learn better when you dare to make mistakes! - I do not believe that there is a single method or textbook suitable for everyone. Hence the importance for me of always getting to know my students in order to build an effective progression. - I systematically tailor my lessons to the particular needs of each student, depending of course on his or her abilities but also on his or her favorite subjects. - I ask the students to do exercises (lexical or grammatical) at home after each lesson, in electronic (pdf) or paper format. We systematically correct them at the beginning of each class. - The dialogue between the students and the teacher is very important. Not a lesson goes by without them talking about life and the events in the news... - I prepare for examinations (DL, DELF/DALF, TEF, TCF, CCIP, TELC, CIEP, LPE...) (La Parenthèse - French Language School - The Hague)

Spanish and Catalan for people of all ages and levels
This class is aimed for anyone who is interested in learning Spanish or Catalan. For all the people, being young or adult, just beginning or already having some knowledge of the language, this is your class. If you would like to on a trip to a Spanish-speaking country or you are planning to go to study or work there, if you are interested in Catalan culture and its language... you are more than welcomed! Learning a foreign language is always a challenge, but an exciting one, and together we can enjoy it! I'm a bilingual native speaker of Spanish and Catalan, with some experience teaching the language to foreigners when I was living in Barcelona (before I moved to The Hague), and also giving private lessons to high school students.

Emma
English lessons and tutoring
I offer English courses for a diverse range of levels. Are you a beginner, intermediate, or do you want to prepare for an exam? My goal is to help you improve your level of English. I am French, and have followed my high school course and my license in English. So I have an excellent academic level, and can help you practice in conversation, or in a context more framed with exercises. I offer English lessons for a wide range of levels: whether beginner or intermediate, my aim is to help you improve your spoken and written English. I am French, and have completed my high-school and bachelor degree in English. I therefore have an excellent academic level, and can help you practice in conversational-context, or in a strict framework with exercises. I also offer homework help for primary and middle school students. I clarify the lesson, repeat it with the student, and help him complete his homework. I have a good academic background, and have offered support courses before. I also offer help with homework for primary and middle school children.

Théo
English class with a native speaker
I am a French and English tutor. I was born and raised in France. However, I lived in England for 3 years and therefore I am fluent in English. Furthermore, in England I studied law and therefore I have a solid knowledge of legal English that allows me to share my knowledge with my students. I believe it is the best way to learn and practice it, orally, through formal or informal conversations and then balancing this practice with one's writing skills. My classes are quite dynamic and I am very flexible and can adapt to the student's needs.As well as fluent in English, the classes can be taught in English. I also provide support for any homework or tasks as requested by the student.

Laura
SPAANS LEREN! Native spanish speaker teacher with certification by Instituto Cervantes and more than 4 years of experience in teaching
I am Laura Pérez, a Spanish living in The Hague. I have been teaching and helping other high school students with their homework and study methods since 2014 as a private tutor. The last year I got hired as a English teacher in two different schools in Madrid (extracurricular activities) where I developped my teaching skills with children between 3 and 10 years old. I studied Nutrition and Dietetics (4 years bachelor)at Complutense University of Madrid. Depending on the goal, the learning or lesson method is different. Normally, the first day I meet the student and we talk about what he or she expects and the topics we need to pay more attention. From that, I organise and structured plan for reaching the desired goals (talking, listening, speaking, writing, etc) or level (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2).
