    About Me

    Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
    Hi, I'm Elsa. I grew up in South Africa, where English became our second language. At school and after work this was the language of instruction and at home we spoke Dutch.
    I taught English to a colleague at home for a few years at home. This was in a very relaxed way. First, by speaking more easily feel the English language, then concentrate on the problems, weak spots- more "to the point" to address the language and make it clear. Small written exercises are used here and also with children games where you learn the language relaxed.
    Learning a new language in a relaxed way is important.

    English writing and speaking support for all levels.
    I am very good at problem solving. Therefore this class is about the individual student and giving them the support they need to improve and succeed. This will be less of a class and more of a personalised private tutor format whereby I will assist students with whatever current problems they face. It can range from teaching better essay writing skills or how to be a better public speaker. Depending on the needs of the student I will adjust my teaching accordingly. If the student needs assistance with a particular homework assignment I will help them through it. I aim to create a nurturing and comfortable environment for my students, I believe students have enough stress understanding all their current work and I do not want to pile on more. Therefore the class is not about giving homework and completing tasks as it is to create real and systemic improvement in the student and their confidence in the subject.

    English tutoring for students of HAVO or VWO
    I have experience with tutoring high school students, especially in the English language (also for students with reading difficulties such as dyslexia). My goal is to transfer my knowledge to the pupil, and to challenge him / her and above all to motivate him. I'd love to hear what you want to be treated. For this we can draw up a good schedule to the next test / exam, so that you go into the exam with certainty and a good feeling!

    Mathematics, biology and English tutoring for students and students
    I am currently studying medicine at the RUG in Groningen and also provide extra lessons. I have passed exams in mathematics, English, physics, chemistry, Dutch, biology and economics. I have achieved satisfactory results in all subjects but usually give tutoring in mathematics, English and biology. I can also provide tutoring in the other courses. I can come to the pupil at home but the pupil can also come to me, in Vries, Zeijen or the UMCG in Groningen.

    English Exam Preparation, Conversational English, and Editing
    I have four years' experience teaching English in academies and schools in addition to private lessons taught from home. The classes I have taught range from one-on-one conversational English to exam preparation for the Cambridge exams, levels A2-B2. I have experience with all age groups, from four-year-olds to adults. Exam preparation classes focused on the four main areas of the exam: reading, writing, speaking, and listening. My classes had a very high pass rate for these exams. General English classes were guided by the students own requirements, for example, job relocation or travel. Speaking practice is an important part of each class, because I believe the only way to really learn a language is to speak it and hear it as much as possible! As someone who learnt Spanish this way, I can understand all the frustration that comes with learning and making mistakes, but it can (and should!) be fun too. I also have experience proofreading master's theses and PhD articles. More extensive editing and help with writing is also possible.

    English as a Second Language for Students & Adults
    Mastering the English language can open many opportunities for you. The beginner and intermediate courses I offer will equip you with the basics of English grammar and vocabulary you'll need to read, write, and speak English. Seeing as I am a non-Dutch speaker, this means that the duration of the classes will be conducted in English, which will help improve your language skills as you have no other choice but to speak English with me.

    Coaching and coaching of homework: all alpha subjects at every level.
    I myself am from the History teacher in Windesheim, Zwolle and now I study History with Honors at the RUG. There I had a lot of fun studying and especially helping others to study. History and all alpha subjects are my strength and I can convey them to others with great pleasure. I also helped many years with learning disabilities through secondary schools, so I have become proficient in coaching and helping students plan. As far as my English is concerned ,; you can assume that it is flawless. Because I do not only study in English but have also lived and worked for several periods in English-speaking countries.
