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.

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.

As a native English speaker with a degree in English Literature and 8 years of teaching experience I am passionate about helping others find confidence in speaking, reading and writing the English language.

I look forward to working with you :)

Simon
Language Learning Coach - Learn HOW to learn a language, use it with ease and have great conversations
“I feel stuck” These words I hear again and again, from beginners to advanced. The majority of students who come to me are frustrated. They spent many years studying languages at school. They’ve spent both their time and lots of money. Only to find themselves still struggling to form a sentence. Still struggling to be able to understand a native speaker. If you’re here then I’m assuming you share some of these same struggles. You get confused trying to memorize grammar rules, remember vocabulary, and makes sentances. You don’t know how to learn every day. You get distracted and then you feel too tired to keep going. Believe it or not, I’ve been there too and to be honest, it sucks to have another language is to possess a second soul Charlemage Now, I want you to trust me on your language journey Imagine finally knowing exactly what to do when you sit at your desk to learn a language. Imagine knowing how to learn grammar, how to remember vocabulary and make it stick, how to speak, and how to write beautiful sentences. Imagine going on holiday somewhere and interacting with locals. Laughing, eating, dancing and living life in a different language.

English Language & Literature, and IB Exam Prep for All Ages
I specialise in English (British & American) tuition for native and non-native speakers of all ages, and have experience working with: • young children learning English for the first time • primary- and secondary-school students studying the English language and its literatures • adult professionals and seniors wishing to improve their language skills, or develop pronunciation or presentational skills I have two degrees in English language and literature (B.A. and Mst) from the University of Oxford, and I am also a graduate of the International Baccalaureate (I.B.) Diploma program. I've developed a creative approach in my sessions with students that involves applying a student's particular talents and interests (regardless of subject) in the process of language acquisition, along with the simultaneous development of critical skills like close and careful reading, argumentation, written style, and effective communication. I am versed in the requirements and intricacies of a range of national and international diploma programs. When working with students supplementing an academic syllabus, my goal is always to position them to succeed in the assignments and assessments laid out by a primary instructor.

Did you always dream to learn English language and haven't done it yet? I am here to help you out! It is one of the most popular languages on the planet, therefore it is very important to know it. This class is aimed at individuals (either kids, students or adults) who wish to learn it.

By this class I would like to immerse you into English language environment. For the teaching purposes, throughout the classes, I will use different highly-rated textbooks of local editions, effective YouTube channels, interesting articles. I will cover main functional areas of English grammar and vocabulary within different areas and will make sure that you start speaking since the first class already, since Practice Makes Perfect and English is not so difficult as it may seem at first! The goals, needs, expectations will be discussed in person with every student and adapted towards personality. The program and classes content will also depend on the prior mentioned factors. Feel free to contact me for questions and classes.
