My name is Sam and i'm a 28 year old Irish man living in Amsterdam! I have a CELTA certificate in English teaching and over three years of experience giving courses online and privately, both to individual students and groups. My students have been both beginners and advanced learners, with very different reasons for learning the language! I also have a speaking level of the French language!

To begin, we can find your needs and objectives for learning English and from there we can progress in our work together! I have a degree in Criminal Justice studies and another diploma in Social studies, so if you're needs are specific to law/humanities I can meet any needs - I have also taught tech English and business English with many of my students.

Personally, I am a writer, currently working on my first book I hope to publish! I love creativity and anything to do with languages, which helps me to create courses that are interesting for any student - I have a patient, kind and understanding approach to learning English that helps my students to feel relaxed enough to make those extra steps necessary to improve!

About Me

I come from a little town in Ireland, though for the last three years I have been living on/off in Paris, before moving to Amsterdam! I decided to become a teacher because I love working with people, and, as a writer, I love the English language and it is great to watch people progress while I also get a better understanding of my own language!

I have been teaching for three years to many different types of students with lots of reasons for learning English; exam preparation, business English, conversation classes, general English, school exams, legal English and tech English are some of the different types of courses I have given to students of all backgrounds and levels!

My approach to teaching is to provide an environment that allows you as a student to speak as much as you can with no fear of judgement - our courses will be based around speaking, with all grammar/vocabulary and other exercises being used to bring us to this final point - speaking! I am a very patient person and can adapt to the needs of any person, no matter how big or small, so that nobody ever feels any less than they should in a classroom setting. I consider learning important, but I also consider feeling good about yourself while learning to be just as important.

As a person who lived in Paris while learning French, I understand the difficulties that can be faced with learning a language, and I can promise to provide an atmosphere that allows these difficulties to be faced smoothly.

Education

I have a Level 8 Hons Bachelors degree in Criminal Justice Studies which I completed in Waterford Institute of Technology in Ireland.
I also have a Diploma in Applied Social studies which I completed.

Three years private courses (online / in person) (1-1 and groups)

English lessons with a CELTA-qualified native English speaking teacher / Engelse lessen met een ervaren CELTA-gecertificeerde docent
Are you looking for a qualified native English teacher (British) with extensive teaching and business experience? If so, I would love to help you! I have a very simple teaching philosophy. Every single lesson must be challenging, rewarding, and fun – as the best way to learn is with a smile on your face. I adapt our lessons together to your unique needs and goals, including: • improving your accent and pronunciation; • helping you avoid steenkool English and typical ‘Dunglish’ words; • broadening your vocabulary; and • perfecting your use of tenses. Most important of all, I can help improve your confidence, which is the key to learning any language. A speciality of mine is Business English, so I can also help with everything from preparing for an interview or speaking in meetings, to giving a presentation. While my classes are 100% in English, I can also speak Dutch and Spanish. This gives me a real insight as to why students make certain mistakes, and how to best avoid them.

Liudmyla
English language for Adults, Boost your Listening and Speaking.
I am a cheerful, optimistic and mindful teacher. I have been giving this course for more than 6 years. The class provides a flexible set of teaching materials, which can help you to improve your speaking and grammar skills at the same time. At the lesson different interactive activities, such as watching authentic videos and listening popular songs, are used to level up your English as fast as possible. Studying can be funny and fascinating. Teaching experience and friendly ambience can break down the wall of your silence. The course mission is to boost your vocabulary and communication. I provide all the materials and interesting homework tasks, which are prepared personally for every student.

Acine
Learn Spoken English for Communication and Public Speaking
These sessions are focused on English for people who encounter challenges in speaking and communicating and lack the techniques that are used for that purpose. We would develop situational vocabulary, corresponding verbs and adverbs that help transmit more precision when speaking. Our mission would be to see where you currently are in the language, strengthen any weak points and create awareness about points that need extra attention. These classes tend to take place in a more relaxed yet fun and stimulating environment. I constantly provide feedback to students about their progress and assign homework to ameliorate the practical and theoretical aspects of the English. This class is all about making English accessible and easy to learn to all through a variety of social and interactive stimulus.. You may request a full refund and get your money after the first class if you think that this class does not suit you.

Sandra

Hello parents! My name is Sandra. I am a native English speaker from New York State. I have a USA teaching license and a Bachelor's Degree in Childhood Inclusive Education (Grades K-6) from the State University of New York at Fredonia. My experiences include teaching at primary international schools in Belgrade, Serbia for 2 years and 3 years at international schools in The Hague, Netherlands. I have worked at two IB primary schools. Alongside teaching at international schools, I have 8 years of experience teaching English. I also have experience teaching grade 1 and 3 in elementary schools in New York State. I have taught children from 2-17 years old and adults. My students range in levels from beginners who are new to learning English, to fluent English speakers that need support or would like to further excel or maintain their fluency. Based on my experiences, I have learned to adjust my teaching style based on different students' needs, cultures, socioeconomic backgrounds, and learning abilities. Lessons are provided to children and teenagers. Lessons are customized to the learning needs of your child. Whether that be learning English for the first time or practicing improvement of speaking, reading, comprehension, pronunciation, listening, writing, grammar, etc. Lessons can be aimed towards learning a topic such as food, animals, sports, emotions, and more. For children who are fluent English speakers, tutoring can be given to further excel in particular areas. Subjects that interest the student such as science, history or world topics can be incorporated into the lesson to broaden their knowledge. Support can also be provided in learning organizational skills, research, and mini projects for older children. I am available to help with studying, homework, or school projects. For online learning, I use a variety of platforms, websites, educational games, and e-books to reach the learning goals of my students. Additional homework can be provided if requested. Depending on the students age, lesson duration is adjusted. If you are looking for lessons for siblings, please reach out to me to discuss the best schedule for your children. The aim is to create a positive and enjoyable learning environment for all my students. I hope you can join my English lessons! Please reach out to me if you have any questions. I can provide my resume, reference letters, or teaching portfolio if requested. Looking forward to hearing from you.

In my previous job as a fundraiser for a music charity in London, I organised and hosted live and online public events and gave regular progress presentations to the organisation’s leadership team. As an artist, I organise, collaborate, recruit performers and manage public art events at various galleries and organisations. I thoroughly enjoy bringing fun and creativity to students learning English. I am passionate about you reaching your goals whether you're a business professional wanting to perfect your specific business communication skills, a child who doesn't know why English is important or an adult who wants to improve their written / spoken English. As a TEFL qualified teacher I am trained in teaching Business English as well as other specific requirements, and I am trained in teaching English both online and in person to class sizes of one to 250 students!

For young children, a more interactive and playful lesson has been thought out so that they are interested. Based on your wishes, a lesson plan will be created for more effective study. Classes can also be held in a cafe near the student's house and my house. I also prepare students for IGCSE (English as a Second Language), IB (English A: Language and Literature SL/HL)

French, German and English tutoring for all levels.
I have a few years experience in tutoring, as I have teached children and teenagers between 10 and 16 years old mainly German and English. All three languages are my native languages, thus I am very comfortable in all three. I always prioritize conversation and creative writing exercices (if level permits) instead of theory, because I believe learning a language is about feeling it!

Professional German/English classes from an International School Teacher
This class is for everyone who wants to improve his/her English and German skills.

I always try to teach in a fun and engaging manner with real-life context.

Palina
English lessons levels A2 to C1 Online and Offline
Latin was popular a thousand years ago, French - a couple centuries ago, English is the language of the 21st century! We'll work on Speaking and Writing skills, and, of course, Grammar. For advanced learners I fancy such books as Destination and Grammar in Use (we won't be restrained by just these, though). With beginners we'll be maintaining a decent active vocabulary. After the lesson I'd appreciate feedback a lot :-)
