Hello! My name is Stavie and I've been using English ever since I can remember! Because of this, I am interested in helping others discover, learn, or improve their English skills. Have you just started learning English and you need someone to help you with this journey? Do you already have a good level you just need someone to practice with? Would you like help with an interview or presentation in English? I can help you learn a language from scratch or help you practice so you can use the language at work or in a personal setting.

My experience allows me to offer courses for both teenagers and adults. I can also offer support with homework in English for Elementary, Secondary and High-School Students. I am looking forward to meeting you and being part of your journey in learning English! In case you have any questions before booking a course with me, do not hesitate to contact me.

Coach - Public Speaking // Public Speaking // Public Speaking
ENGLISH BELOW Do you feel insecure when speaking in front of groups? Do you feel you could have more fun speaking in front of groups? Are you afraid that the content of what you say will be lost? Many people find it quite difficult to speak in front of groups. You may have heard the advice 'imagine everyone's in their underpants', but it didn't help (or you probably won't be reading this text). Maybe you don't find public speaking all that difficult or scary, but you think you can get a lot more out of it. I would like to help you become a better, more relaxed and open speaker. The coaching is completely tailored to your needs and needs, but we work, for example, on preparing, analyzing and/or writing a text, body posture and language, use of voice and empathy. I was trained as an actress and singer, two subjects that give me a lot of baggage and inspiration when coaching public speaking. I have more than 8 years of experience as a coach and teacher. /// I specialize in coaching individuals in how to present themselves on stage or before a group. My goal is to focus on your own specific goals and help you develop your skills. Whether you need to speak in public for work or school, or just want to get rid of stage fright before giving that wedding speech, I can help you better yourself and gain confidence! We work on different levels: analyzing and/or writing text, performing, body language and voice. I have a strong background in singing and acting and have been working as a teacher, coach and director for over years.

Sebastian
Swedish course for adults, students or kids! (All skill levels)
Hej och välkommen! Jag heter Sebastian och jag är 31 år gammal. I currently work as a Swedish teacher at the Volksuniversiteit The Hague and I love every minute I can spend with my students. A Volksuniversiteit (litt. folk university) is an institute for non-formal adult education in the Netherlands. I am a Swedish native speaker and general language enthusiast. Besides Swedish I speak English, German, Spanish, French and Italian. Having learned multiple languages myself I am sure that I can successfully teach you Swedish in a fun and relaxed manner. My teaching focus lies on speaking the language as much as possible. Immersion is key to language learning. Think of small children. They are language geniuses. Why? Because they speak as soon as their brains permit them to speak, without worrying about making mistakes. Therefore, it is paramount to start using the newly learned words immediately in order to prime our brains to get comfortable with the new language. Do you already have Swedish knowledge? No problem! Instead of building the basics we can design classes that meet your personal needs and preferences. My classes combine speaking, listening & grammar exercises in interaction with me. Furthermore, I show you Swedish food, music and places. On top of that, I introduce you to the best technological tools (homepages and applications) to boost your language learning and take it to the next level! I am extremely confident that you very soon will have the same success that I have had in learning languages! My past and current students would testify to that. I look forward to hearing from you! Jag ser fram emot att höra ifrån dig! Greetings, Hälsningar, Sebastian

PRIVATE LESSON OF ENGLISH GRAMMAR (learning and consolidation)
Many French people admit not feeling at ease when they have to express themselves in English to English-speaking people. They understand well what they hear but do not have solid keys to express themselves with ease, fluidity, by constructing rich sentences. They think that what they lack the most is the vocabulary but generally, what they lack the most are grammatical keys on which to build everything. The grammar of a language is the equivalent of the foundations of a house. Without foundations, a house crumbles. Without grammar, the expression remains wobbly, approximate, even false to the point of sometimes becoming incomprehensible. This is why I offer private lessons exclusively in English grammar to allow you to weld your "foundations" and free your expression by giving you confidence. Together, we will take, deepen and consolidate your grammatical knowledge We will reinforce your mastery of the fundamental structures of the language and will also work on the idioms which English people love and which will allow you to make a difference. In order to progress in the best possible conditions, I offer private lessons in the evening of 1h or 1h30: Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. Saturday mornings between 9:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. or afternoon between 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
