English Language and English Diction Lessons For All Levels

Knowing English in the Netherlands is an important skill. Being confident with the grammar, comprehension and diction with English opens doors for you locally and internationally. I offer English lessons that focus on application for all levels and goals. You learn to correctly pronounce North American or Mid-Atlantic English (not-quite British), and have creative and goal specific exercises and lesson plans all tailored to your needs. I work with children and school-aged children, young professionals preparing for interviews, as well as adults wanting to sharpen their skills and take their English to the next level.

About Me

Hi! I am Jessica and I am from Canada. I am a classical singer, singing teacher and English language coach. I enjoy working with all levels and ages and my favourite part of teaching is helping someone to realize that they can learn a new skill, be it English or music! I enjoy cycling, reading, exploring the Netherlands, singing with my duo partner in Duo TInuviel, and spending time taking my two kittens for adventures.

Education

I have studied music for 25 years playing violin, cello and singing. I studied at the University of British Columbia, completed my Bachelor Degree in Music and Voice, University of Toronto (both in Canada) and continuously advance my education as a performer and teacher through private lessons, masterclass and courses. I have traveled around Canada and Europe with my studies and performances.

Experience / Qualifications

10 years teaching children, teenagers and adults of all ages music appreciation and singing lessons in several cities across Canada, Berlin (Germany) and in Utrecht (Netherlands). I taught with my private studio as well as an employee with multiple music studios. I also work with my own singing teacher in private lessons on Singing Pedagogy.

Reviews (1)

Very knowledgeable and fun
I teach private singing lessons to children, teenagers, and adults in English (for now) and beginner music theory for all ages. Due to the current situation with COVID-19, I am teaching online only. There is no extra cost to the student and you don't have to leave the comfort of your home to have a fun time! I have 20 years experience as a performer and 10 years of teaching experience and have a passion for sharing music with others through music education. I believe that singing is a joyful expression of each unique voice and person. My teaching philosophy is to nurture students to have a fun and positive relationship with music no matter the level or age. My focus on a classical vocal technique gives the student a clear understanding of vocal technique, including: breathing techniques, pitch control, musicality and the knowledge to explore any genre of song. Basic music theory, rhythm, diction, sight-reading and ear training are also taught to the student to support a well rounded musical experience. I also teaches students how to practice, giving them the tools to feel confident in their own learning process. Absolute beginners are welcome! For online course, piano tracks are provided for you to sing along with during the lesson and we have a lot of fun together.

English for professionals (refresher, fluency, conversation ...)
***** Availability update made on 09/01/2020. Valid until further notice ***** I offer you my services in order to make you truly effective orally / in writing in English. If you have to use English in the course of your professional activity and you don't get comfortable with it ... If you are tired of being spotted immediately as French ... If you don't know still not when to use the present perfect / preterite .... I'm here to help you and make you progress. * Linguist by training and author of school textbook in this capacity. Note that I am not this young student who had a good mark in the Baccalaureate or this other who is supposedly bilingual. I have been teaching as a teacher in the National Education since 1995 and I can tell you that teaching cannot be improvised. It is not an activity that we do "like that". I offer you my expertise and my experience. By the way, to have 10/20 in the Baccalaureate, it is enough to have the A2 level (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd year) so I let you imagine the desperation of future engineers who must obtain at least 750 in the TOEIC! (the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course is prepared according to your needs. Feedback is always given. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, connections ... Oral grammar. * Adaptation to all levels: => Post-bac: preparation for TOEIC, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First-Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Orals and writings from grandes écoles such as ENA => Orals and writings from business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...)
