English lessons for speakers of other languages by CELTA qualified native speaker

I offer online or face-to-face English lessons to non-native speakers. I work with the student to identify learning objectives and any areas of weakness and tailor the lesson accordingly. Areas covered during the lesson include, speaking, listening, reading, writing, grammar accent reduction.
I currently live in Den Haag, The Netherlands. In addition to private coaching, I also work for an online ESL company delivering English lessons to children across a range of age groups. In addition, I also work as an ESL proofreader and IELTS private tutor here in The Hague. I hold a BA (Hons) degree and have a CELTA qualification. Prior to a career in ESL English teaching, I worked in the UK national press for the Times and Financial Times newspapers. It was there I developed my proofreading and communications skills.
In my spare time, I write articles for magazines and have had feature stories published in The Telegraph magazine, The Daily Mail and a number of health magazines. I have also written two language books. The first, 'I Already Speak Speak French!' is an illustrated book for children that covers the etymology of many English words to their French origin (attached is a sample of it for your interest!). It has been translated for the French market into, 'I Already Speak English!' The second book is called, 'Learn Business English FAST!' which draws on a teaching methodology used for effective, fast learning that I used whilst teaching English for the international company, GoFluent.

Sinead is an amazing and experienced teacher. She always prepares well before each lesson and provides the personal instructions you mostly need. Besides, she gives good advice and resources for me to go next step. Thank you very much!
I enjoyed these lessons. Sinead helped me recognize my mistakes and correct them. She also taught me lots of new words while going through different topics, which made the classes interesting. I definitely recommend taking classes with Sinead.
I've had the privilege of 'flying' with such a kind and patient teacher. It was a wonderful experience and unforgettable week. Thank You:*
The experience with the teacher was fantastic. Shinead offers meticulous personal attention and whatever learning support is needed. She also focuses on your specific needs, creating dynamic and fun conversation lessons, in which she always tries to support you and correct your mistakes.

What do YOU want to learn? I will design lessons just for you. During our classes, you can tell me what you want to do next time, and I will prepare a lesson for that. You only want to focus on writing? No problem. You want more practice in speaking part 2? We can do that. You tell me what you need and I'll make a lesson for you. We will use only real tests and learning materials made just for you to help you target your mistakes and grow your strengths. Never generic textbooks. * MORE DETAILS: 👂 Listening: I will teach you what to expect in all sections and provide training on all task types including filling in forms, labelling maps, understanding debates and discussions, and listening for keywords in lectures.

In Task 2 you will learn to make and discuss opinions, consider advantages and disadvantages, and write about causes, effects and solutions. Above all, I will teach you to write quickly, as it is essential to finish both tasks and reach the minimum number of words within one hour. 👄 Speaking: I will help you prepare for all common questions and topics in Part 1, give expert advice on making short speeches in Part 2, and teach you how to give long and confident answers to all types of difficult questions in Part 3. I will also help you with speaking confidence, fluency and pronunciation.

Shahnoza
Conversational English and Grammar for everyone; a lot of speaking practice
My name is Shahnoza, and I am offering English classes to everyone, whether you are a student who feels a bit self-conscious about your English or you are a grown-up who wants to broaden the opportunities and horizons. I always try to avoid formalities and make my classes (reasonably) informal and friendly.

My goal is to make my students speak the language and understand why they should use this or that word. I believe that every person is a whole world and I would like to know this world and help my students show this world to people. Can't wait to work with you! :)

Carina
Swedish, Danish and English courses from beginner to business.
I have worked fulltime, for the past 12 years, as a language teacher and translator. I was born in Sweden, to Danish parents and live with an Englishman. I teach said three languages to both private and commercial clients, placing great emphasis on client needs and abilities. Cultural knowledge is also very important to the understanding of any language and is therefore included in all courses. The dreaded grammar is the fundamental building block to a language, but I try to make it as fun as possible.......as well as the homework and self-study.

Kevin
Individual German seminar for learning in turbo mode. All levels
THE PUPIL This announcement is aimed at both pupils and adults wishing to acquire the German language. I offer tailor-made individual German seminars for levels A1 (beginner) to C2 (perfect mastery). My goal is to make my student independent as quickly as possible. THE METHOD Contrary to popular belief, German is a very tame language. You are certainly familiar with the language courses at school. You are given lists to learn by heart and you are asked to do exercises completely unrelated to the reality of a speaker. We explain grammar to you by confusing French grammar and German grammar. This is why no one manages to express themselves in German having undergone this kind of method which has proven for a century that it does not work. With me, my student has a second chance thanks to intelligent theory and pragmatic methodology. Indeed, I am currently writing a book on the acquisition of foreign languages. THE TEACHER I have 5 years of experience teaching German and an average rating of 5/5. German is my mother tongue, with no particular accent. I master French as if it were a mother tongue. I am fluent in English and Portuguese and have an intermediate level in Latin as well as some basics of Greek. My personal linguistic goal at the moment is to master Latin fluently orally. To maximize the quality of the courses, the sessions take place by video call in combination with Google Drive: - individual tailor-made course - interactive text document - interactive whiteboard - photos or scans can be imported - readable writing - instant written feedback during speaking - very flexible schedule - no time-consuming trips If you are interested, do not hesitate to contact me to arrange an appointment or to ask me your questions. I look forward to meeting you.
