My English teacher is Lucy. She is enthusiastic, patient and creative. She pays attention and motiveates me to learn English.
Lucy helped with the CAE exam preparation. She is professionally focussed and flexible.
English has become a global lingua franca, with more speakers every day - it is essential to be versed not only in the language but also in the nuances of international communication. In this course, I focus on creating a study plan tailored to your individual needs, taking into account where, when and why you use English for the most practical application of English for business.
I'm an experienced English language teacher with over 8 years professional experience. I have extensive experience tutoring academic English, as well as teaching general, business and English for specific purposes. I have also helped tutor students taking formal exams such as IELTS, TOEFL and CAE. I'm an enthusiastic, proactive and conscientious teacher. Every class is tailored to the needs of the student, and my classes are planned with your goals in mind. I am also available for online classes. Via an online suite, you can practice your English from anywhere. I am also available for blended learning courses (a combination of online and face to face classes). I am British (Accent: Cambridgeshire). I am currently based in Maastricht, but am available to travel to Eindhoven and Aachen where I also currently work.

English Language Classes (Literature also possible)
I've always liked learning English, now having achieved an expert level of the language I also enjoy helping others learn it the best they can. I am able to aid either in the basic language learning as well as developing your written or communication skills. Want to know how to talk to a future employer? Any business buzzwords or other nuances? I can help too.

One on one English training (General English/IELTS)
I am an experienced and qualified English trainer (CELTA) offering one on one classes for General English/IELTS in Eindhoven. I have previously taught in India and France and have about 4 years of experience with teaching adults and non-native speakers. It is always of utmost importance to me to make learning comfortable and fun - I believe this is the most effective way to grasp a foreign language.

Denizhan
Turkish, English, Math and Test Preparation Tutoring
I am a native Turkish speaker and lived in the US for many years. I have experience in tutoring specializing in grammar and daily language in both Turkish and English, as well as experience in preparation for tests such as TOEFL, SAT, GRE and academic writing. Preparation for the math part of such tests (SAT, GRE) or math topics up to university level are also offered. The classes can be shaped according to the needs of the student.

Naomi
French, French literature and English tutoring classes
Born in France, I'm a French native speaker and used to teach French and Literature in Geneva through the organisation l'ARA. After one year in England, I'm fluent in English and got the Cambrigde C1 level (Certificate in Advanced English given by Cambrigde). I'm here in Maastricht to do my master's degree in Human rights and besides I would love to teach and help children or young people to improve their language skills, as I have a very easy and good contact with them.

Leila
Help with homework/studying - specifically languages or history/geography
I speak French and English fluently and used to do after school tutoring of various school subjects for children and teenagers. Learning languages can be a fun and interesting experience that will always be useful, and that's something that I want to share. I adapt my teaching style to different people's needs so we'd discuss that during the 1st lesson. We don't have to limit ourselves to languages either, I'm happy to help out with homework if you/your child has difficulties at school, so we can also do maths (to a relatively basic level), history-geography, etc.

Ahmad
IELTS / TOEFL Prep Tutoring, Skills and Techniques.
TOEFL & IELTS are the world’s most popular English language tests. Some people find the IELTS test easier than the TOEFL and others find the opposite. My job is to help you choose the right test for your level and the easier for you to succeed. During this process, I will consider many aspects in order to draw the final conclusion: your abilities in the four different skills (reading, listening, speaking and writing), your mother language and many other aspects. After selecting the appropriate test IELTS or TOEFl, we will begin to prepare together for the exam. First of all, I will help you to identify or diagnose your weakness which makes you lose a lot of points and then we will work on your concentration. After that, I will help you improve these points in order to get the desired result. On the other hand, I will guide you to know your strengths and use them to get the required score.

French or English classes for children and adults, conversational or structured
I'm offering French or English classes for children and adults where they would learn through games and conversations, according to their age and language level. I have a lot of experience teaching foreign languages to children, as I have been a teacher assistant and an international au pair before. I can also help out with homework. For adults, I can do conversational French or English lessons where the subjects vary depending on the person's interests and language level as well. I can also help choose and work from a book, if the person wishes a more structured learning environment. About me, I'm a French native currently studying at the University of Maastricht, I speak English and French fluently and I'm always willing to practice my Spanish with people!

Bianca
Listening comprehension, writing, and speaking skills Italian and English
Have you ever been worried that your accent isn't good enough, or that you may be mispronouncing things, or you just want practice speaking? Well, I can help you out! As a native English speaker and near native Italian speaker, I can help you from the basics, to helping you correct university level papers, and to just sitting down and having a chat with you! I have had past experience with tutoring and am flexible towards what my students want. If you're looking for someone to give you weekly homework, and to teach you grammar and vocabulary then I can do just that (with an entertaining, laidback feel to it). I don't want learning a language to feel like a chore, or a burden, therefore I put a lot of effort in making my classes interesting, new, and fun to ensure you take the most out of it. If you would like to know more about who I am, or need any help in English and Italian I am ready to help! My goal is to guide and help the students grasp a high level of understanding in the basics of English language skills, ESL, and Italian. Moreover, I aim, with the students, to achieve a more advanced level for the students in speaking, reading, and understanding. I can assure flexibility in my lessons. If students find they already know something quite well, I will not dwell on such topics too long and will move on to other topics that are new to them, or of interest. My goal is to provide a focused session in which the student is really the center of attention, where all their needs are met.

Marcell
Private Tutoring in English, Academic Writing and University Applications
Do you want to become more proficient and more confident in English? Would you like to realize your full potential through writing the best essays and the best letters of motivation? I believe then that I am the perfect tutor for you! I studied Linguistics, the science of languages at the University of Cambridge, and as such, I am well-versed in thinking about language in an advanced level and familiar with different language exams (e.g. IELTS). This experience is going to be very advantageous for you when going through the perhaps more confusing aspects of English. Over the years, as Access Officer of a Cambridge society, I helped 60+ people with their university applications, and I learnt what makes a good letter of motivation. I can help you with how to connect your experiences in order to create the perfect applications for jobs and universities alike! I run my classes depending on your needs - do you feel more comfortable studying in your home or in a cafe? We focus on writing, speaking or both, all dependent on what your aim is and where your abilities are. In any case, I assign homework after every class, to allow you to consolidate your knowledge. I am also happy to proofread any kind of written piece! If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!

Saba
