Private English Lessons with a Native English Speaker

I am a certified English teacher who has recently moved to Rotterdam from the United States. English is my native language. Whether you are a true beginner, intermediate, or an advanced English speaker who is simply looking for someone to practice with, I am here to help.

I have a true understanding of how intimidating learning a new language can be and tailor each lesson to suit your individual needs. We will assess what you already know and work together to set goals that will push you out of your comfort zone but not be overwhelming. Since moving to Rotterdam I have helped many students work towards their English language learning goals. I have experience teaching ESL (English as a second language) for business and regularly help ESL students prepare for interviews.

A little about the lessons: I like to use a variety of materials to build my lessons but a typical lesson will focus on a relevant topic to suit your interests and needs, and give you various opportunities to practice listening, comprehension, discussion, formation of complex thoughts and ideas, reading, and building vocabulary. I like to utilize technology when it can be used to enrich the lesson and assign homework as a continuation of our session.

*My rate includes our time together as well as additional time spent outside of class preparing your individualized lessons/materials and building a program that works best for your English language learning needs.

I am flexible with scheduling and have a passion for helping others! I cannot wait to meet you :) Please feel free to message me with further questions about my teaching method and current availability.

Sophie
Language courses Dutch, English or Spanish - Based in Rotterdam
You will learn speaking, reading, writing and listening, depending on you wishes. My teaching style is interactive, natural and fun, I really want you to feel free and comfortable enough to make any mistakes as long as you're actively practicing the language. I also like to be creative in teaching methods, for example, we can play games, or go to places to study vocabulary. Anything goes really, as long as you're actively practicing the language and also enjoy it, in order to stay motivated. I am a certified teacher (TEFL certificate) with experience in teaching, mostly to children but also to adults. As I have learned several languages myself (English, Spanish, French, Catalan, Turkish, and German) I have a lot of familiarity with the learning process and what is important to gain basic knowledge and skills. Languages are thus my passion and I really enjoy finding creative ways to teach and motivate you to learn the language, since every language opens up a new world of communication and expression!

Economics classes for University level students will be based on student's needs (some suggestions: Econometrics, Microeconomics, Quantitative Economics). For school students, it can involve advanced learning or basic Economic knowledge (aligned to student's needs). English classes will involve writing and speaking practice (based on the student's existing knowledge). I tend to explain things pretty well. I always try to assign homework for further practice. Times can be discussed with me and I do accommodate students based on mutual availability.

Spanish lessons from a Native teacher/İstanbul'da ve online özel İspanyolca dersi/ DELE/ özel yerli öğretmen / Clases de español
My Spanish lessons will be skill and grammar focused. I will help the students to develop their language skills so that they can use them in real contexts. For the DELE and Cambridge assessment lessons the students must have a good command of the language because I will prepare them to know the structure of the tests while they practice and develop the main skills and sub skills needed to have a good result. İspanyolca derslerim beceri ve dilbilgisi odaklı olacak. Öğrencilerin, dili gerçek anlamda kullanmak için dil becerilerini geliştirmelerine yardımcı olacağım. DELE dersleri için öğrencilerin iyi derecede İspanyolca bilmesi gerekir ve onları testin yapısını bilmeye hazırlayacağım ve iyi bir sonuç elde etmek için gereken temel becerilerini ve alt becerilerini çalıştıracağım.
