English language for Adults, Boost your Listening and Speaking.
I am a cheerful, optimistic and mindful teacher. I have been giving this course for more than 6 years. The class provides a flexible set of teaching materials, which can help you to improve your speaking and grammar skills at the same time. At the lesson different interactive activities, such as watching authentic videos and listening popular songs, are used to level up your English as fast as possible. Studying can be funny and fascinating. Teaching experience and friendly ambience can break down the wall of your silence. The course mission is to boost your vocabulary and communication. I provide all the materials and interesting homework tasks, which are prepared personally for every student.

Paul
French and/or English (literature, grammar and syntax)
I specialize in tutoring English and French as they are both my native languages. I have extensively studied French and English literature for more than 10 years and would wish to convey what I've learnt to other students. My goal is to keep students at a high level with their foreign language courses and to maximize their interest for both of these beautiful languages. I assign homework after every class in order to keep the student captivated but mainly to make him/her improve.

Klaudia
English Tutoring with Holistic Approach for All Levels
English has become the Lingua Franca of our times. It's a valuable skill to possess, beneficial for everyone. It comes handy in the ever-developing world that we live in and opens doors to many places, also in the mind. Additionally, bilingualism enhances the cognitive skills. Whether you'd like to improve your speaking skills and break the language barrier or you wish to prepare better for an English exam, I come to an aid. I'm a 3-year Linguistic student, I've achieved the C1+ levels in English, on the CEFR scale. I have 2 years of experience living in London, where I acquired RP (received pronunciation) and 3 years of experience in the International Academia (Amsterdam). My linguistic background gives me the capacity to explain the sounds and various processes of the language, from a perspective many natives do not know. In teaching, I practice the holistic approach. It is my belief that language is for people of every age and education, but I'm aware that everyone deserves a personal approach. That's why I offer the first meeting unpaid, so we can get acquainted and discuss the expectations of both sides. In classes, I will try to raise your confidence and knowledge in English, on 4 levels of proficiency: Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing. I will focus on your strengths and teach you how to use those to your advantage in learning. We will elicit your potential and together achieve the goals you set for yourself.

Thijs
Mathematics, economics and writing papers, international focus
I usually teach math and economics in English for students who want to become scientists. I help write a good paper. As long as Corona is there, it is possible via Teams, Zoom or Skype, but in principle the lessons in my building are within walking distance of the Central Station.

Derek
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.

Lex
Tutoring Maths / Physics / English online or in the Amsterdam / Den Helder area
Hi! My name is Lex. I have been teaching math and physics for 3.5 years for high school in Den Helder. Since this year I am now a bachelor student mathematics at the University of Amsterdam, and am looking for a few new students to be able to supervise for tutoring. A few points that really set me apart from the rest are: - my tutoring experience, I have been giving 3.5 years of tutoring experience at many different levels - I work a lot less formally, this mainly ensures that the student is not afraid to ask questions or will feel "stupid" - I am very flexible with the times - I can explain everything in many different ways - the student can always send a whatsapp if something fails, and then I help him with that Online tutoring is certainly possible, and I also ensure that all notes that I make are forwarded so that they can be reviewed later. The best I recommend is a block of 2 hours in a row for tutoring, hereby I am sure that I can sufficiently help the student.

English for every level, age, and skill, and taught by a native speaker
I am a native English speaker from the United States. I have previous experience tutoring children and teenagers in various subjects, but this subject is quite easy and comfortable for me to teach. My goal in teaching this course is to help English learners at any level improve their skills. I will teach you whatever it is you want to know. If you want to improve your vocabulary, grammar, writing, pronunciation, etc. then that is perfect! If you want help with homework assignments or preparing for an exam, then that is also fine! If you just want someone to talk to you to practice your English conversational skills, I am here for that as well. I am available much of the week and can travel to you to teach. I do not discriminate based on age level or level of knowledge of the English language. I will teach anyone! :) I can travel to your home to teach, since my residence isn't very appropriate as a teaching environment. Given the situation with COVID-19, I am also willing to teach online via webcam. :)

Noah
Presentation Skills - Speaking, Interview, and Presentation Preparation
Do you have to give a presentation in English but are struggling with anxiety on how to deliver something exciting? Many people benefit from confidence boosters when giving a presentation, be it for work, school, or even an interview. My lessons focus on building confident delivery and coherent presentations, delivering and responding to interview questions, and general public speaking for work or school. I have a PhD from Leiden University in The Netherlands, and over the course of my years there I gave presentations all over the world on my research to crowds ranging from 20 to 1000 people. I have also worked in a theatre setting as a producer for almost 10 years, and these two worlds combined have allowed to come up with a formula to help you shake off any nerves and get excited about standing up in front of an engaged audience.
