    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.

    Sandra
    American Native English Teacher - English Lessons for Children and Teenagers (In Person or Online)
    Hello students! My name is Sandra. I am a native English speaker from New York State. I have a Bachelor's degree in Childhood Inclusive Education (Grades 1-6) from the State University of New York at Fredonia. I currently work at an international school in The Hague, and I teach private online English classes and private English classes to children in The Hague. I have been teaching ESL (English as a Second Language) to children ages 3-16 for 4 years. I also have experience teaching English to a group of adults, and 3 years of experience working in elementary schools in New York and international schools in Serbia. I can provide classes to children and teenagers. I can help with improvement of speaking, pronunciation, reading, listening, writing, grammar, etc. My aim is to create a positive and enjoyable learning environment for my students. Assessments, progress reports, and additional homework can be provided to my students. For children or teenagers who need a tutor, I am available to help with test preparation, studying, homework, or further advancement in English. Vital learning tools I regularly use in my classroom for children include educational games, activities, songs, and storybooks. Visuals and interactive hands-on learning are important to encourage students to engage and actively participate in their learning. For children, each lesson is aimed towards learning a topic such as food, animals, sports, emotions, and more. I provide the learning activities for class such as the worksheets and games created by me. I incorporate reward charts with stickers and positive reinforcement as well. Based on my experience, I have learned to adjust my teaching style based on different students' needs, cultures, socioeconomic backgrounds, and learning abilities. I hope you can join my English lessons! I can provide my resume or reference letters if requested. Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Shelley
    English for General Purposes, School/University, and Personal Interest
    Speaking English is difficult and uncomfortable at times! However, it is necessary for many people. My General English classes focus on vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation (accent reduction), and increasing confidence. General English is for people who want to improve all of their English skills. Classes are structured and involve a lot of speaking practice. We use Google Docs, textbooks, articles, and videos during class. I can provide homework if desired.

    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. If you have (and with me you always will, I'll simply make you talk to me) some stories, I will gladly listen to them and help you develop your ideas. 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! :)

    Sebastian
    Swedish course for adults, students or kids! (All skill levels)
    Hej och välkommen! Jag heter Sebastian och jag är 30 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

If you have to use English in the course of your professional activity and you don't get comfortable with it ... If you are tired of being spotted immediately as French ... If you don't know still not when to use the present perfect / preterite .... I'm here to help you and make you progress. * Linguist by training and author of school textbook in this capacity. Note that I am not this young student who had a good mark in the Baccalaureate or this other who is supposedly bilingual.

(the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course is prepared according to your needs. Feedback is always given. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, connections ... Oral grammar. * Adaptation to all levels: => Post-bac: preparation for TOEIC, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First-Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Orals and writings from grandes écoles such as ENA => Orals and writings from business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...)
