English Writing & Composition: For University and Work

Learning the fundamentals of writing and composing English text can help you advance in your studies and professional career, especially if you deal with international communication, academic research, or public speaking. The principles taught here apply to any modern language.

This class is designed to develop students' understanding of professional writing, academic language, essays, proposals, critical analysis, and stylistic structures. The focus is primarily on grammar, structures, arguments, audiences, purpose, context, and formatting (where necessary). In addition, you will have the chance to explore the basics of literary analysis.

I live in the Netherlands and study in the USA (by distance-learning methods). I also work as a writer and editor for several American and British corporations, which helps me stay up to date with the evolution of the English language. Usually, my students are university students, but I am willing to help anyone who wants to improve their linguistic skills.

Extra information

You need to have an understanding of basic English grammar and spelling for this class.

About Me

I work in three distinct industries: writing, translation, and music. These are also the fields I specialize in as a tutor. My business clients and students are usually from the USA or Britain, but I live in the Netherlands. I do not ever plan on moving out of here, so I can meet Dutch residents personally, if they prefer so.

Helping university students and adults develop their linguistic and musical skills is a passion and skill of mine. Unleashing personal potential and success are my first and foremost goals when I teach. My lessons might seem a bit tough at first, but believe me, it all pays off in the end. Besides, anything is possible, as long as you really want to do it.

I invite anyone who is interested in my lessons to contact me personally if they need out-of-schedule lessons, specific guidance, or more details about my classes. I aim to provide every student with personalized advice and help.

Math or Physics Tutoring with a dose of fun (Online or in Utrecht)
Hey! Do you have troubles with homework/school or just understanding basic concepts? Or your kids need some extra training to be the best of the best? I would love to be of help. In my online classes, we have discussions and watch videos to figure out what exactly is the missing link to supreme confidence in the subject. And ofcourse, solving problems is taken seriously to gain mastery. Usually my classes are in advance of what is going on in school. This helps the student be prepared in advance for the class. Normal routine can also be followed on the other hand.

Professional IB tutoring with a twist: I provide flexible student-focused tutoring specializing in IB English, IB History, assignment and exam prep, Extended Essay, and TOK. Additionally, I have extensive experience with the MYP Programme, and I am happy to tutor MYP 1-5 students. I mainly focus on skill development (essay writing, research, and critical thinking), but I can provide content-based lessons if required. I have been a qualified teacher since 2012 and a TOK Examiner for the IB since 2017. The twist? I took a break from teaching to get my Ph.D. I am currently in the second year of my doctoral studies at Utrecht University. In that time, I worked as a legal researcher on human rights at the UN, was invited as an academic consultant to the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, and published more than five research papers. I, therefore, provide the knowledge and skills of a teacher, examiner, IB Core coordinator, and professional researcher while being a student myself.

I have taught English professionally for three years, from kids to adults, at an English academy. I have got a Cambridge certified C2 level, and I specialise in tutoring English for school and for Cambridge exams, especially the FCE and the CAE. I have also taught conversation classes as I have got an impeccable British accent. Spanish and Catalan, on the other hand, are my native languages and I have been studying and speaking them since I was a child. I especially offer conversation lessons, but I can obviously help with school work. My classes are for people who want a one-to-one class in which to start learning or to improve English, Spanish or Catalan. I am very flexible and I adapt to the necessities of the student; homework, progress reports and exams are possible.

Spanish and English lessons. You will have fun learning languages.
I remember when I was a student. I used to get bored at school, and I don't want my students to feel the same. So prepare to have during the lessons either in Spanish or English. One of my teaching strategies is to make the students like their classes and languages. And also show them in what way this is important for their futures. I like to create a friendly environment, where students can feel confident and relaxed when the time comes for them to produce. In my opinion, this environment that I create is the most important in the learning process.
