Practice (Professional) English with a Native English Speaker

[Note: At the moment I am very busy with recurring students and work, and may not be able to accept your request for a recurring lesson. However, I remain available for shorter-term tutoring appointments.]

I'm a native English speaker from the USA, living in Rotterdam. In my job as an engineer, I regularly help colleagues with their written and spoken English. I'm available to help you practice English on a regular basis on weeknights. I specialize in working with students in professional or technical fields who are interested in refining their English writing and speaking skills.

Examples of lessons:
- Reviewing written documents together, and identifying recurring errors (work emails, proposals, reports, etc.).
- General conversation practice, and presentation practice. I will listen, take notes, and provide feedback on pronunciation and grammar, while we discuss various topics.
- Practice speaking exercises in preparation for IELTS exams.
- Assistance with job applications (reviewing English CVs and cover letters).

I do not teach beginners courses in English, as I have a full-time job and this would require longer/more intensive lessons.

If you're interested, I'd love to hear a bit more about what you'd like to learn, so I can tailor the lessons to your needs:
- What is your previous experience with English?
- Why are you improving your English?
- Do you have any specific goals? (e.g. certain topics you would like to be able to speak/write about)

For our first lesson we can meet at a cafe/park/library, and after that we can chose the location that makes the most sense.

Gaizka
English and/or Spanish for effective communication
Hi there, My name is Gaizka, Spanish and Basque are my mother tongues. I spent 9 years in the UK and I took my degree - See profile photo - in Edinburgh last summer. My approach to teaching is pragmatic and sympathetic. I understand your struggle because I lived that struggle for a long time when I moved to the UK in 2009. My main interest is to make you feel confident with what you know and see how much you can stretch that knowledge in real life communication. And then we grow and improve from there. You learn a language to communicate. You say something and you get a reply. You are understood and you understand. That is the only thing that matters, that you can use what you know and communicate more and better as you learn. I will adapt my lessons to your need and your preferred lesson/learning style with strong focus on growing your confidence with the language. All can be discussed via Apprentus or on the first day.

Marcelo
Learn Portuguese in 10 weeks - private or group lessons -- professional with teaching degree - intensive course of 15 hours
Oi Tudo bem? My name is Marcelo and I am from São Paulo. I live in The Hague and I teach Portuguese in The Hague, Rotterdam-Centre and Amsterdam. Op wo 29.05.19 start er een groepje Beginners A-1. U bent Beginner als u nog geen verleden tijden beheerst en als u spreekvaardigheid nagenoeg nihil is. Alleen een paar woordjes is niet voldoende voor het tweede niveau. Volg een risicoloze proefles. After four lessons, you will be starting to make sentences in Portuguese and slowly start to ... SPEAK ! The rate per hour is much lower than the mentioned private lesson rate. The lessons are from 19.30 until 21.00 hours. It is a very small group ( 4 or 5 students) so it will feel like private lessons. As an experienced teacher of Portuguese and Brazilian Portuguese and Portuguese Business Culture Training, working for two well known language institutes and with more than 18 years of teaching experience based on a Masters Degree of Literature, I want to expand my activities, because of an increased demand for affordable lessons Portuguese. Group and private lessons consist of 10 lessons of 1.5 intensive hours (15 hours) and an extra (!) lesson live in a wonderful new Brazilian Restaurant. new : I Will bring you in direct contact with other enthousiastic students of mine who had other teacher before me and are very happy with my effective style of teaching and offered to me to share this with others. So these are real referrals !! Private lessons can also be reserved per lesson. Only groups have a fixed schedule. My goal is to teach you the basics (European level A-1, A-2) or if you are advanced (B-1 and B-2) in a short period. with Dutch or English as a channel for explanation of the grammar. I assign homework after every lesson and provide periodic progress reports. ’tarefas de casa’ (homework) will take you about 3 to 4 hours per week. The private and group lessons consist of a structured explanation of grammar and a part of the lesson where the student puts this immediately into practice with fluency practice (short sentences). I have an enormous passion for teaching, and after 19 years it still feels like brand new (even better with all the experience now..) so students can feel this passion. Give it a try, you will learn Portuguese much faster than you expected. Abraços (kind regards) Marcelo.
