    IB English, TOK, IB History, and Essays/Research Skills

    I provide flexible student-focused tutoring. I specialize in IB English, IB History, assignment and exam prep, Extended Essay, and TOK. I also have extensive experience with the MYP Programme, and I am happy to tutor MYP 1-5 students. While I mostly focus on skill development, I can also provide content-based lessons if required.

    I have been an IB teacher since 2012 and a TOK Examiner for the IB since 2017. I currently work at Utrecht University as a researcher in the Law Faculty. I’m also a grad student in the Humanities. And I am happy to work with university students on essay skills.

    About Me

    My approach to tutoring (and teaching) is to focus on a student’s particular needs. Specifically, I aim to find specific skill that can be transferred to other subjects. This is one of the things I love about English literary studies. Sure, learning about literature might not be directly applicable to the job market, but analysis skills are some of the most important skills for developing a critical mind and they can be used in all subjects and in life in general.

    I primarily tutor IB students and I know how much pressure IB students—especially Diploma students—are under. I am here to make that process easier and to help demystify the curriculum, which I know can be convoluted to students and parents (especially TOK). That said, I think the IB is perhaps the best curriculum for preparing students for university and life. That is why I have dedicated most of my middle and high school teaching carrier to the IB. That said I have taught in the Australian and Canadian systems, so I am pretty flexible.

    I prefer to work via webcam as I am busy with my own school.

    On a more personal note. I am currently submitting my dissertation in the humanities on migration and minority LGBTQIA+ groups. I also work at Utrecht University in the Law Faculty where I conduct research on how human rights law serves LGBTQIA+ populations.

    I am a massive sci-fi nerd, and I love to play games with friends. I also live with my partner and two Siamese cats from South Korea (Bong Gu and Claudia).

    Practicing English language skills (reading, writing, speaking)
    Hey, curious learner! English is an important subject in all secondary schools. When learning it is difficult, I am here for you. English is my passion and I am currently in the second year of the study English language and culture at Utrecht University. I would like to help you in any area. Reading is always a big part (also for the final exam). But maybe you have a hard time during speaking tests ... In short, together we make a planning and make sure you feel comfortable enough to use the English language. I think it is important for a student that there is clarity and clarity. That is often one of the reasons why learning a language is difficult. Learning words is not a part of these lessons, but rather practicing difficult parts and connecting them with other language areas. Hope to see you soon!

    English, Spanish and Catalan Private Tutoring and Conversation
    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.

    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.

I also can teach students for admissions exams in the US (such as SAT, GRE, MCAT) and in the UK (UCAT), especially focusing on the verbal reasoning abilities and writing. I am originally from the US, English being my native language, and although a biology student myself, have taken many reading and writing classes throughout my life, scoring well on admissions exams, and am willing to share my knowledge with you :) Let me know what help you need, and we can figure something out!

    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.
