    English Grammar, Vocabulary and Fluency for All Levels

    I am a native English speaker with experience teaching English to all ages and in various settings. This course is for students of all English speaking abilities to develop their grammatical understanding, breadth of vocabulary, and confidence within the language.

    Beginner students will study grammatical concepts such as conjugation and use of prepositions, as well as basic conversational abilities. For intermediate and advanced students, the course covers topics of the student's interest and focuses on conversational fluency. My main tool for improving an intermediate student's English is to consistently correct them as they go, and to go into greater detail on grammatical issues that prove to be of issue.

    I try to push students to speak as well as they possibly can, with as little stress as possible. English is the world's current lingua franca - most people do not speak it perfectly, but with some consistent work you can get close!

    About Me

    Hello! My name is Zachary and I have a passion for music and languages.

    I hold a degree in violin performance, with a minor in German from a small private university in the United States. After graduating in 2015, I decided to pursue my musical and lingual endeavors in Austria. In summer 2018 I moved to the Netherlands to pursue a Master's degree in viola performance at the Royal Conservatoire in the Hague, where I am underway learning Dutch as well.

    While living in Austria I developed my understanding of and fluency in German, speaking every day, reading books, and practicing with my Austrian girlfriend and her family. To finance my studies I have been teaching English in various settings and to various age groups. I have taught students aged 10-20 in a classroom setting throughout Austria, and have babysat and taught children aged 4-11.

    My interest in the German language, as well as my teaching method, centers around grammatical understanding and training combined with vocabulary en masse. I believe anyone has the ability to reach English or German proficiency within two years, if not sooner. It is only a matter of putting in the time to learn the necessary vocabulary and having the right tutor or teacher to clarify grammatical concepts. I look forward to helping you on your path!

    This course is for viola and violin students from the beginner through the high school level. My goal is for my students to foster a healthy and long-term relationship with their instrument. The course focuses on practicing and truly understanding technique, with an emphasis on listening. Weekly assignments tend to include technical exercises, scales, and classical pieces of the student's choice. Basic improvisation is also an interest of mine and, I find, a valuable experience for my string students. I believe repertoire is largely a matter of student taste. Students of mine have learned pieces in the Suzuki books and other classical repertoire volumes, but have also learned pop and fiddle songs according to their interest. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Violin Performance from the University of Puget Sound, where I graduated in 2015 before moving to Vienna to study privately for three years. I am currently in the Master of Viola Performance degree at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague, where I study with Ásdís Valdimarsdottir. I have been teaching violin intermittently since 2009. While my musical education is classical, my performance interests are much wider. I have performed jazz and pop improv, and am currently exploring how hip hop can be implemented on the viola and violin.

    I am a CELTA certified teacher. For the last year, I have been teaching English in the Netherlands to people with different aspirations: professional, studies and hobby. I tailor and personalize each lesson to the student's needs and interests. I also vary the content of the lesson to encourage the students' different skills (speaking, writing, listening and reading) and help them to become efficient communicators. I can provide homework help and support to children and teenagers.
