Goede eerste les gehad ..Prima communicatie en feedback
I am very pleased with the help I have received from Dan with creating a good CV and a LinkedIn profile. He was patient, a good listener and considerate. I would recommend him.
Ik ben erg enthousiast over de eerste Engelse les van Dan. Ik vind t echter nogal dwingend van Apprentus dat ik enkel een beoordeling kan geven als ik ook dit tekstblokken invul. Bovendien wordt dit publiek, daar ben ik ook geen voorstander van.
In current times the need for a professional online presence is greater than ever. LinkedIn has become the main platform for job-seekers and recruiters to match up ambitions and demands. This lesson is for the job-seeker or applicant looking to improve their online profile. We will look together at your experiences, skills, and ambitions and distill them into an attractive and memorable summary. We can also work on writing and formatting your CV, as well as a cover letter for your specific job application. If you're serious about improving your chances, don't hesitate to get into contact with me! (A lesson in Dutch is possible, but I only help to create English profiles)

Send a message explaining your needs and Dan will reply soon:
The more detail, the better.
Ex. "Hi, when are you available to meet for a lesson?"

I hold my BA in English Language and Literature, and also my MA in the same field. Now I am studying for my second MA in Persian Studies in Leiden University. Are you interested in learning Persian language? Or do you want to bring up your children as a bilingual? I have more than 5 years experience in Teaching English to children and Persian is my native language. Whether you are planning to learn English or Farsi, that makes no difference, I will be the right person for you. I can teach Farsi to your children so that they speak it like a native.

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.

English lessons for everyone (beginners, intermediate and advanced) at home or online
Would you like to improve your English or do you need an explanation about grammar? You've come to the right place. I did my master's degree in mechanical engineering in English and I am fluent in the English language. The teaching method depends on the student. If the student has received a teaching method from school, this teaching method will be used during the tutoring. If this is not the case, a teaching method that I have purchased will be used. During the lessons, attention is paid not only to spelling and vocabulary, but also pronunciation. The latter is missing in many courses and tutoring. I will help you improve your pronunciation!

Denise
English, Spanish and Catalan lessons (native speaker)
I am fluent in English and Spanish and Catalan are my native languages. I don't speak Dutch, so my classes would be 100% in the language we are studying. I have been tutoring in Spain for 2 years. I have helped people with English exams (FCE), with school exams and also helping kids with their homework. Let me know if you have any question!:)

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. Feel free to send me a message and we can have a call to see whether I am suitable for you or your child. :)

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.

Learn Dutch in one or three months - experienced coach (20 years experience) Staatsexamen NT2 trainer - inspired to teach Dutch to expats
Qualified language coach with 20 years of experience offers intensive lessons Dutch in a small class or online. My classes (fully Coronaproof) will start again in February 2021. We have an excellent classroom in the center of Rotterdam, near metrostation Beurs, classes (coronaproof separate tables at 1,8 meter distance, good circulation) with 5 students. You can chose between the online package of lessons in a comfortable way with Whereby or come to the classes in January starting 11.01.21. One group lesson per week from 19.30 until 21.00 hours. I work with Whereby, which is more academic than Skype or Zoom. My English is fluent, as well as Portuguese and Spanish. I understand the difficulties to overcome barriers for Latin based languages and for expats in general, as I have been an expat too .. Online lessons take 1,0 hour, once a week, during 10 weeks to reach one extra level. This is the normal speed. Live lessons are 1,5 hours, during 10 weeks to reach one level. Including exam and Certificate. Intensive race? That's also possible in five to ten full days, I am used to give these very intensive trainings to CEOs who just arrived ... and want all lessons within 3 or 4 weeks. Based on European system A-1, A-2, B-1, B-2 and C-1 As soon as students improve their knowledge of Dutch, I always advise and coach them to do the Staatsexamen II, the only formal Certificate in this country, recognized by employers and universities. I will try to switch to Dutch after a few lessons, to put your knowledge into practice., Teaching is my ultimate passion and even after 20 years, it feels like the first time and students always feel inspired to overcome the obstacles of the beginning. I will also teach you about the Dutch social culture, this is interwoven in the course and is strongly related to the language.

Thomas
Chemistry Tutor from the UK (teaching beginner to undergrad)
An enthusiastic chemistry tutor from the UK who will teach you all the aspects of chemistry which currently don't make sense. Chemistry is an incredibly enjoyable and useful subject which many students struggle to grasp at the beginning of their studies. Like a jigsaw puzzle, chemistry becomes easier and clearer the more you understand. I aim to teach you or your child in a relaxed and fun manner which hopefully allows them to understand the nuances of chemistry. I have a BSc Chemistry from the University of Nottingham and I'm currently studying my MSc in Research in Chemistry at Universiteit Leiden. Also, I studied under the International Baccalaureate so I'm able to help with anything related.

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.
