Dutch conversation lessons for children, teenagers and adults
My way of teaching is including having fun. Why?! It can be really "scary" to learn a different language, but not with me! I will make you feel confident in speaking another language, so you will be ready to explore more and more by yourself in time. We will focus on listening, pronunciation and conversation. We will do this by reading, listening and I will be explaining the Dutch grammar step by step. Afterwards I will challenge you with some homework you need to prepare for the next time ;) Ready for this challenge? See you in my class than!!!

Voulez-vous parler la langue de Molière avec fluidité ? N'hésitez pas à me contacter !
Salut, avant tout je me présente. Je me nomme Majda, une jeune fille marocaine, assistante de conversation française à Barcelone, puis à Madrid. D'ailleurs, j'avais suivi mes études supérieures à l'Université Ibn Tofail (au Maroc), et après avoir eu en fin de cursus un diplôme de la licence fondamentale du département de langue et littérature françaises, option linguistique, j'ai pu commencer mon stage d'assistanat à l'étranger (en Espagne). En effet, j'enseigne mes cours de français aux étudiants qui ont une volonté de réussir et qui s'intéressent à apprendre petit à petit les bases de la langue, pour pouvoir par la suite les utiliser au cours d'une très vive conversation.

SPANISH LESSONS FOR KIDS. PLAY & LEARN. Spanish for children.
I work with various materials created to meet the needs of each child; videos, music, games and stories. I do not use textbooks or exercises in which students have to mechanically repeat a certain model. The materials that I use in the classes are colorful, cared for and promote the autonomous learning that they will need in their future use outside the classroom. I believe that each student has his own learning rhythm and must be respected. With a good teacher everyone can reach their goal.

Klaudia
Scary class for adults with low-bandwidth contact, very flexible.
Ahoy! Thank you for wanting to practice, learn, read or prepare for exams in English. My name is Klaudia and I am an English freak / linguist. I have been teaching children, teens and adults for 5 years. 2016-2017 I had stayed in London where I learned my neutral accent. In 2019, I got TEFL 120h and from one year I teach professionally. Lessons are always tailored to what you need. I believe in individual attention. What interests you, we'll talk about it in English. I prepare for every lesson and expect the same from you, that's why I always send you emails or messages so that your English stays active in your head even outside of class. While class we use a number of assistance resources: handouts, interactive media web sites, games, music, comics, books, news and all. The biggest benefit of my approach is flexibility. I make slots to use in your calendar. The more you take a class, the faster you will see the progress. I think one lesson a week is fine, but one lesson every 2 weeks is an absolute minimum. Learn quickly when you want and enjoy using English. I prefer to teach online because of corona, but I will come to you up to 20 km from Amsterdam.

Turkish Lessons (In-Person OR Online) for Adults and Kids from an Experienced and Patient Teacher For All Levels-Learn&Practice&Speak!
I have been teaching Turkish for 17 years. I started to teach when I was studying Turkish Language and Literature. I worked in a language school and at the universities, I suppose that I gained success. 😊 My achievements are directly proportional to my students’ success. My students are mostly teachers, consulate officers, international business people, and also travelers. I feel rewarded when I witness their progress in applying their Turkish language skills to their daily lives. Over the years, I have met hundreds of people from all over the world, taught Turkish, and told them about Istanbul and Turkey. Those people told me about their countries and learned to express themselves in Turkish. For example, I ask them: “Do you like Istanbul?” in Turkish it is “İstanbul’u surveyor museum?” or “ Traffic is very bad in Istanbul!”, “İstanbul’ da çok Trafik var!” The basic but correct conversation is really important for self-confidence in any language. If a learner can master basic sentence forms, the rest will come much easier. On the other hand, making mistakes is also very important. Especially, a learner can not speak without making a mistake the first and second time. My students are always varied and have diverse learning skills. My professionalism also allows me to tailor language education according to individual interests, needs, and capacities. In the classroom, I hold firm three main principles: first, providing a comfortable environment, second, creating an encouraging atmosphere, and third, establishing a collaborative instruction model. I consider that I developed an aptitude for making learning Turkish to become much easier, enjoyable, and practical for my students. I use a book prepared by a university in Turkey. I share the pdf version of the book for my lessons. I also adapt the materials according to the learner’s needs and support the book with my authentic materials. Even though I use a communicative approach, all my lessons are guided by a solid knowledge of grammar. On the online lessons, I send an e-mail after every lesson. That word file includes a vocabulary list, sentences (corrected and uncorrected versions, you can compare both of them easily), grammar point,s and homework for revision. In this way, you can find everything in a file well organized. When we have a face to face lesson, I give a hard copy of this list after every lesson. The lessons could be at my home office or in my student's house or office. I sometimes meet with my students in a coffee shop, I try to prefer silent places. :) How learning a new language opens a new window into a person, teaching Turkish is also the same for me! I was always interested in languages - I could speak a bit of Italian and learned Persian grammar except English. I always think about Istanbul -I was born and grew up here- it is a good place for self-improvement. First and foremost, Istanbul hosts international people coming from around the world. It is considering to me, I am lucky because I have one of the pleasant professions. When teaching Turkish, promoting cross-cultural awareness forms an important part of my lessons. Teaching the language involves both the students and myself in a dynamic conversation about our cultural backgrounds. Teaching Turkish is in fact not only teaching a language but also teaching a culture. I am interested in cinema, music and like visiting museums. I always share the activities with my students. I also teach Turkish to young learners. I started to study Child Development at Istanbul University as a second university in 2018. We say in Turkish, “Studies have no age!" If you want to speak Turkish well, please contact me. It is fun, and we will smile during the lesson!

Portuguese Language and Brazilian Culture: Learn with fun!
Do you want to speak Portuguese and get closer to the Brazilian culture in a fun and dynamic way? Well, I am a Brazilian who can show you our History, our art, customs and the great diversity of Brazilian Portuguese accents, as if you were on a virtual trip to Brazil. I have been teaching my language to people of different levels and objectives for more than two years, which gave me great experience in adapting my classes according to the needs of each student. Thus, in addition to traditional grammar, I use movies, songs, literature and other resources according to the profile of each student. In Brazil, I worked in schools and science museums, where I gained practice teaching children, youth, and adults. I also worked writing and reviewing articles for magazines, so I have great experience with the written Portuguese language. I offer online classes via webcam or face-to-face (in Granada, Spain) so that the student can choose the way that suits him best.

English tutoring speaking conversation for all levels
Offering sessions catering to various levels from beginner to working professionals. Whether you are looking to get more comfortable with English conversations, pronunciation, writing, grammar, levelling up in sophistication, or even just talking chill over coffee – I’m there for you.* Contact me to get started. *Wir können natürlich zwischendurch auf Deutsch sprechen – da bin ich auch dabei. Experience I am a musician with degrees in music and science from both Germany and New Zealand (where I grew up). Throughout my studies I have not only attained several first in class awards, but also marked a few assignments in Statistics 101 – which proved to be more of an English writing task than many would expect. From then on, I was a total fan of better communication. Having a diverse group of friends from all over the world here, I have enjoyed helping them strengthen their English skills. Seeing their increase in confidence in being able to converse and express themselves in English, and enjoying their progress, is what it’s all about for me. I now teach privately and look forward to helping more people communicate in this twisted yet wonderful language.

Learn Arabic Alphabet Letters And Sounds For Non Natives Of All Ages
This course is for those who want to start learning the Arabic language or who need a deepening knowledge in addition to the courses they are already taking. Having taught classical Arabic for non-natives for almost five years now in addition to having Moroccan origins, the teaching of this language is for me a pleasure that i would love to share with you. Moroccan dialect classes can be provided according to the wishes of the student. Arabic is a widely spoken language all over the world. If you visit any arabic speaking country and have a hard time reading signs or talking to people in words they understand, then this class is for you. In this class I will teach you all about Arabic alphabets and sounds, heavy material that is primordial to adapt in an arabic society and communicate with its locals. Consonants and vowels in Arabic are simple but if taught in a wrong pattern turn to be very complex. As a specialized language tutor, I have used a well hand tailored method with a lot of non native speakers, who had no clue how or where to start learning arabic, and they all loved how it facilitated their learning process. Book this class now and learn Arabic with me. If you book my class and don't feel that it suits you may get your money back after the first class.

I also tutor clients who want to improve their English at an academic level for exams such as the SAT, IELTs, EPSO and TOEFL. These include high school students, college students as well as professionals, ranging from engineers to young interns at the EU parliament. I assist with exam based preparation to achieve the desired results and my clients have not been disappointed so far. I have further proofread, edited, written and improved a large amount of essays, college applications, theses, personal statements, and assignments for various clients at an academic level. I like to make my lessons interesting, but at the same time, I make sure that they are as productive as possible. With a thorough understanding and experience of English grammar and literature, I further take care of ghost writing, proof reading and editing of academic and professional papers. Weekly and monthly rates are possible in this case. I have no issues meeting anywhere in Brussels, or at a location or town close to the city.

Included is grammar correction, punctuation correction, proper time tense usage, proofreading, interpretation and text adaptation. Bear in mind that a document of 1-2 pages could require 2 or even 3-sessions depending on the complexity, context and objective of what you may want your end result to consist of.
