    Hannah
    Native, certified English teacher offering in-person and virtual classes
    Hello, my name is Hannah and I'm a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language)-certified teacher. No matter how hard I try, I keep coming back to languages. Although I have a master's in public health and have a variety of professional experiences, languages have always been my true passion. From my bachelor's degree in French to the time I spent teaching English in Argentina, to my TEFL certification in Chicago, to the time I spent teaching English in Germany, to my current home in the Netherlands, I have always been motivated by learning foreign languages and speaking them with native speakers. Although I have had many positions as a teacher, mentor, and tutor, I decided to return to teaching about two years ago after spending time in a corporate job and have been teaching full-time since. I am very happy with my decision and hope to continue passing on my love of languages to my students for years to come. As a student of foreign language learning myself, I know which strategies work and which don't. I believe that all students should feel comfortable in the classroom and shouldn't be afraid to make mistakes, because that's the best way to learn! I encourage exploration while also having a solid knowledge of the language background of my students to aid in times of confusion. I have seen first-hand the value of having a native teacher for language courses, and through taking courses on my own, know what works and doesn't work for students.

You can bring your own materials, like books or a laptop or let me prepare some exercises for you. Together we will find out what works best for you.

    Anna
    Italian Grammar and Literature. English Grammar and conversation
    I am an Italian native speaker with a bachelor in Italian Literature and Linguistics. In Italy, I usually teach English to high school students​, or adults who want to improve their skills with this language. Usually, I tend to use a non-academic approach, by focusing on the student's interests and make him/her applying the language to their everyday life, instead of simply learning the grammar rules by heart. In my opinion, learning a new language should be fun and easy, nothing too stressful. What you will get from is a new positive and funny way to learn a foreign language such as Italian or English.

    Ugne
    English (grammar/pronunciation/spelling) help for adults and children
    Hi, My name is Ugnė and I am a 20-year-old student. I speak fluent English, Lithuanian, and German. I was born in Lithuania, completed primary school in Austria, did the Middle Years Program in Lithuania at an international school, received my International Baccalaureate Diploma in Denmark, and currently, I am doing my bachelors in Psychology here in the Netherlands at Leiden University. From the age of 10, I have only attended English-speaking schools as well as completed various education programs in English. I am able to teach using only English, German, or Lithuanian. I am willing to assist both adults and children (such as doing homework). My approach with tutoring is very enthusiastic, encouraging, and friendly as teaching should be enjoyable for the student. I also have babysitting experiences and experiences working with young children particularly with special needs.

    English lessons for beginners and those who want to improve, young or old
    English is a world language. You can go almost everywhere with English. That is why it is important that you have some command of English and that you can make yourself understood. And that is what I am for, helping people, young or old, to learn English or improve their English. Method: First I make an assessment of aptitude for, and existing knowledge of, English for each student. During teaching I find the following elements important: 1. Creating a friendly and pleasant atmosphere in which the student starts to feel enthusiastic. 2. Discipline. This means that the course leader and the student (s) do what is expected of them. 3. From simple to complicated, tailored to the aptitude and experience of the student (s). 4. Practicing a lot and repeating previous lessons. 5. Structured work. This mainly means working on the grammar of English because grammar gives structure to a language. 6. Regular keys.

    Alexander
    English Language Tutor: Conversation, vocabulary, pronunciation, writing skills, and more!
    Are you interested in improving your English language skills this summer? Hi there! I'm a home-grown English native, currently here to teach and further my studies at Leiden University. I'm looking for enthusiastic students seeking to improve their English skills over the summer. If you are looking for a relaxed learning environment to sharpen your English skills then look no further! With a wide range of interests and experiences I offer to work with my students to build an English course around their interests and learning goals. Whether that involves a focused course of lessons in vocabulary, improving your pronunciation, or preparing for a specific test; or a more relaxed setting, in which we meet at either your residence or mine, to discuss a list of topics you find interesting and engaging. There really is no better way to get comfortable with speaking a second language than to spend time in the company of a native speaker, so why not join me for some British tea and engaging conversation.

    English tutoring from an English teacher in training
    I specialize in teaching English. I am an English teacher in training and am therefore also pedagogically competent. In addition to my studies, I want to gain more experience with teaching, and what better way to teach students who just need that extra boost. Our lesson (s) will start with determining what the student needs and setting goals. Then we can work together to achieve these goals.

The lessons can be held in a location that suits you or via Skype, etc. if necessary. These lessons can be for students of any level who want extra support in English acquisition or improvement. As the student you can choose which areas you would most like to focus on and I can structure the lessons with this in mind. This can include areas such as grammar, conversation, vocabulary, and much more. We can discuss together how best I can help you to improve your language skills based on your needs, for example through help with homework or setting additional homework. If the hours shown do not suit you let me know as my lecture hours vary slightly each week and I may be able to fit you in. If you have any questions at all don't hesitate to message me.
