Very helpful and clear feedback on my text. Totally recommend John!
John is an excellent tutor. He goes through the material very carefully and explains every aspect in a clear and understandable way. In my case this was for the subject matter linguistics. John is also a fantastic creative writing tutor and was super helpful to me when I was writing my essays. He is someone who really cares about giving his students a quality lesson that they can benefit from and I cannot recommend him enough.
Wonderful teacher! A very dynamic person who keeps the student interested in going on with the basic as well as more detailed aspects of Latin language, both Classic and Medieval. Highly recommended.
We all have some kind of creativity that we want to express, but sometimes it's hard to go it alone. This class is for people who want to improve their abilities at writing in English. This includes those who want to write creatively as well as people who need to improve their academic or business writing skills.

Russian language, test preparation and exam prep tutoring
I am a dual citizen (Russia-USA) native speaker currently studying International Studies at Leiden University. I have past experience tutoring Russian students who want to learn English in Russia. My lessons can either supplement university courses, or work as an individual program. During my time tutoring students I have developed a personal study program, which helps students better understand the required material. My goal is to teach a language I am passionate about in a relaxed non-overwhelming manner. Students will improve knowledge of spoken and written Russian, as well as improve their accent.

Gabriela
ENGLISH, ACADEMIC WRITING, POLITICAL SCIENCE AND INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS
Hi there! My name is Gabriela and I am currently pursuing a Master’s degree at Leiden University in The Hague. I have specialized in the field of Political Science, International Relations, International Law and Security Studies. I also provide tutoring in English for academic purposes (including IELTS prep), intensive writing and research methodologies. My purpose is to motivate and help students prepare for their undergraduate studies since high school years are essential for building a solid foundation for the future. I believe that with the right kind of preparation, no subject can be ‘too difficult’. I like seeing students going the extra mile and overcoming obstacles. My teaching method consists of giving students specific guidelines and directions so they can engage in a learning process and become efficient problem solvers themselves. I also provide teaching support for younger students. I have experience working with children aged 7 to 14 years old. Please feel free to contact me if you need any further information.

French talking and reading with vocabulary and grammar lessons
Do you want to learn a new language in a fun and interesting way? Why not french? France is only a few kilometers away from Netherlands ! French is my mother tongue and I have always been fond of learning new languages. I can teach you how to easily and quickly learn french. I master grammar, vocabulary, reading and writing methodologies. As a student myself, I know how hard it may seem to learn a new language. That's why I find interesting to gradually implement new items to the lessons. We can start with listening and studying french videos in order to understand the pronunciation and have a general idea on how to read and enrich your vocabulary. When I feel like you've became more confident, we can start focusing on grammar which is the trickiest part of the french language. I think that we should find pleasure in learning. Adapting my lessons to your necessities is my priority !

Naomi
English or Spanish tutoring, all ages and abilities; Grammar, Conversation, Practice
Tutor in both English and Spanish. As a native English speaker, I am competent to teach any level from Grammar and written English, to causal conversation to improve practical skills. As a near-native Spanish speaker (C1/C2), I am competent to teach any age and ability. Having learnt the language myself, I have an advantage in teaching it to others, as I understand where common mistakes are made and student are confused. I specialize in teaching Spanish to English speakers or English to Spanish speakers, as I can communicate effectively in both languages and appreciate where common difficulties lie. I have experience teaching a huge range of students, from pre-school children to adults. I use a variety of fun, effective learning tools and methods, which will be suited to each individual student. The student controls the content and the set-up of the lessons alongside constant, informal review to ensure we are always working together to meet their goals. We work at the student's pace, ability and preferred method of learning, tailoring our sessions to meet their desired outcomes. I operate in a completely honest, open environment, where there are no such things as a stupid mistake or question!

Arzu
Russian language for English speakers: grammar, reading, speaking, writing
I am a native Russian speaker and can teach Russian to English speakers. I can help you to practice grammar, speaking, pronunciation, listening, writing skills. Also can help with learning Russian from the scratch, starting with the alphabet. During my lessons, I primarily teach my students not to be afraid to speak Russian. Before classes, I plan topics on which we can talk to expand our vocabulary, and be able to maintain a conversation on a variety of topics. Also, classes are held in a communication format, so that students learn to understand Russian speech, to be able to ask the questions, reflect on the topic, etc. Depending on the needs of the student, we study the fundamental grammar rules, which are most important for grammatical speech. To consolidate the material, we do various exercises and tests. Usually, these are texts with gaps that need to be filled. We also do oral exercises so that students can apply grammar rules not only in written assignments but also get used to applying them directly in their speech (which is sometimes a problem because we used to forget some rules in our spoken language). Since Russian phonetics is quite complicated, I also select various exercises for diction, adapting them for each student (which is always a lot of fun). I hope to see you on my lessons!

Eloisa
Italian Class: Grammar, Basics, Conversations and Test Prep Tutoring
I am an Italian mother tongue law graduate and I studied at the so-called "classico" high school in Italy, therefore my Italian knowledge has pretty strong basics! I am willing to tutor whoever wants to practice her/his already acquired Italian skills or is willing to start learning from scratch. The classes will be adjusted to the specific needs of each student to achieve the best outcome possible.

Learn Spanish with a native and experienced teacher
This class is targeted for anyone who wants to learn Spanish or improve his/her level. My goal is to adapt to the competences and needs of the student in order to make progress at the path desired. High flexibility is offered. Besides the traditional language lessons, the class can provide homework assistance, conversation practice, and exam preparation. I am a native speaker and have extensive experience teaching Spanish to foreign students. For instance, I spent one year in Germany as a Spanish teacher, where I taught from basic to advanced level, including conversation practice in preparation for the Abitur. I have also provided private classes to exchange university students for 4 years. If you have any questions regarding the classes, please feel free to drop a message!

Kevin
Spanish lessons for all levels, Test Prep Tutoring
Hola amigos! My name is Kevin and I am a Business Administration professional with first-hand experience in tutoring foreign students from different nationalities. My linguistic spectrum consists of English, French and Spanish, which I master both orally and written. As a native Spanish speaker, I possess significant experience in the construction of argumentative texts and academic essays in Spanish. On the personal side, one of my greatest passions are philosophy and literature. As such, I am constantly reading and translating texts in order to increase and develop my language skills. Consequently, my work methodology is mostly focused on motivating the student to speak freely and to learn by acknowledging his/her mistakes. From the beginning, I will try to address the lessons 100% in Spanish, with the aim of familiarizing the ear to the pronunciation. In terms of written exercises, it is important to know what are the student’s learning priorities. When starting with the written part, it is important to know the student is dedicated to practicing and that he will also benefit from this in his future experiences. This is why the exercises will address current social problems that allow him to be fluent when he meets other Spanish speakers. In order for the student to learn as easily and efficiently as possible, homework exercises will be given after each lesson, drafted according to the parts that the students wishes to master best (speaking, reading, listening, writing). This way, the student will benefit from a fluid learning process and, with dedication, will be able to excel in Spanish in a short period of time.
