Experienced and fun language teacher for Spanish ELE and English ESL

¡Hola a todos!

My name is Patricia. I'm a native Spanish speaker and a teacher. I've been teaching Spanish and English as second languages since 2004 and every day I enjoy my job even more!

I did my Spanish Philology and Literature studies and learned how to become a teacher at the National University of Salta.

I'm a committed, responsible and professional person, who is always eager to learn new things and in permanent training. My patience knows no limits and I can find a thousand ways to explain something if it's necessary :)

I can make a course specifically for you, according to your knowledge, needs, interests, and requests. In 15 years of doing this, I've never taught the same course twice. I can compile and produce tailor-made study material for you. Since I'm absolutely passionate about Spanish, I've studied its different varieties around the world, so I can guarantee that with my classes you'll be able to speak in any Spanish speaking country.

Over the years I've worked with a wide variety of students from teenagers to adults, from complete beginners to proficient people who just wanted to practice speaking. I also help students prepare for the DELE exams, I've done so in the past several years with excellent results.

I'm in love with languages and communication, and teaching is my calling, my passion. With me grammar will never be an issue, furthermore, I can promise you that you'll enjoy it and have fun!

I'd be more than happy to discuss with you what is the best way for you to learn from scratch or improve your Spanish/English in no time.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

Really great and patient teacher. We meet via Skype 2-3 times a week. My husband noticed an improvement in my Spanish within 6 weeks. Highly recommend!
Eerste kennismaking was erg hartelijk. Zij stelde mij meteen op mijn gemak. De eerste les bijna alleen spaans gesproken. Ik heb er alle vertrouwen in dat ik onder begeleiding van haar het spaans goed zal leren spreken.Ik verheug me op de lessen die komen gaan.

Math Tutoring (GCSE A-level/ VWO/ SAT/ IIT/ GRE/ GMAT)
I am specialized (>5 years of experience) in tutoring math for school (any level, but preferably higher level), including competitive exams such as the SAT, GRE, GMAT, and the IIT-JEE. This class is aimed to train high-school students undergoing VWO or an IB curriculum. If you are having problems following math at school or university, or you wish to have an advanced knowledge compared to your peers, or prepare for any competitive exam, I am glad to help you. Personally, I have succeded in the IIT-JEE and GRE tests and am currently working as a Quantitative Researcher of stock markets, and therefore analytical math is also a part of my job. The classes could be rigorous or lenient depending on the student. There will be periodic progress reviews and tests and I'll make sure that the student achieves his desired goals.

I will teach piano from scratch for new learners. My goal is to ensure that students are learning any type of music. Moreover, I will teach music theory lessons.

Furthermore, I have taught a 16-year-old student for 1 year.

Robert
Need help with social studies, English or mathematics?
Hey, my name is Robert. I am 22 years old and are currently studying European studies at UvA. I am from Denmark and last year I worked as a teacher at a private school in Denmark called Vejle Privatskole where I primarily taught math and English. I will be able to tutor social science and English on a level equivalent to secondary education. Math however I will only tutor on a primary school level due to my knowledge of the subject not being as proficient as the other two. My native language is Danish, but my English is almost as excellent as my Danish and I will be able to tutor in either English or Danish however I do not that I do not tutor in Dutch. I am good with children, always smiling and happy so I would be able to tutor children as well as adults. I sincerely hope that whoever reads this will consider me as a tutor. Best regards Robert Kolby

Marlena
English for all levels, test preparation and academic writing
Nowadays a good command of English is useful and often even necessary. We come in contact with the language almost everywhere, in school, on television, the internet, in conversations. As a native German speaker I once had to learn the language as well and I know how challenging it can be. I already majored in English at school. After school, I went to a language school in the United States in order to prepare for the TOEFL language certificate. Thereafter I started a bachelor program which was held entirely in English. During my studies I learnt a lot about academic writing practices. Often, the lessons in school focus on grammar and vocabulary failing to to convey a basic understanding of the language. Conversation and writing fall short as well. I am offering lessons for children and teenagers. My goal is to support their learning experience in an engaging way. We will discuss what you need and how I can help you. Be it a basic introduction, grammar or conversational training. I also offer proofreading. Lessons can also be taught via Skype.
