Course for those who want to perfect their English

Hello! This course is aimed for those who already have a grasp on English, but would like to perfect their reading and writing abilities. 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!

About Me

Hello! I'm Alex, a 25 year-old master's student originally from the US. I have been teaching children since high school, first at piano, then a teaching assistant in college classes as well as a running coach for young girls. I have experience teaching younger kids and college students, but would like to work with older populations as well. I enjoy teaching, and plan on being a veterinary professor eventually. I am currently doing a master's in Environmental biology, focusing on neuroscience research however, and will be going to veterinary school next year. I eventually hope to get a doctorate and be a faculty member at a university, where I will teach alongside my clinical work. I am a native English speaker, and ethnically part Ukrainian, so I am able to tutor in both languages. I have been writing my whole life, also poetry and creative writing, and have enough research experience at this point to be able to offer lessons in academic writing. I know you want a trustworthy and knowledgeable teacher, so please reach out to me if you have any further questions, or want to know more about me. I'm looking forward to working together!

Education

Utrecht University, Masters of Environmental Biology - Behavioral Ecology, 3.7 GPA
University of Rochester, Bachelors of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Pre-Med, 3.6 GPA
Brighton High School, "Gymnasium" equivalent, 3.95 GPA

Experience / Qualifications

In high school, I was a piano teacher for children 8-12 years old.
In college, I was a Teaching Assistant in Organic Chemistry and Ecology. I also coached an all-girls running team through the organization Girls on the Run.
I have experience with dog training and sitting during my master's.
Hello! I am currently an Environmental Biology master's student living in Utrecht. I graduated from the University of Rochester with a bachelor's in ecology and evolutionary biology, and specialize in neuroscience research. I am currently doing an internship at the Equine Clinic at Utrecht University, and will be going to veterinary school next year. Since most of my work is independent, I am able to tutor and share my knowledge with you! From those who need help with the basics to more advanced tutoring, I can help! Originally from the US with English my native language, I can help with writing papers for biology, studying the material, studying for admissions exams (GRE, AP exams, honors material, etc.), among other things! Let me know what you need, and hopefully we can work something out :)
Hello! I am a master's student studying Biology originally from the US, and will be graduating this spring. I am offering tutoring for research paper writing, essay writing, and resume writing for uni, hbo, high school, and really any level! Let me know what services you need, and I'd be more than happy to help :)
Hello! I'm Alex and I was born and raised in the US, but my ancestry includes Ukrainian. My parents sent me to Ukrainian school on Saturdays throughout my childhood, where I learned the language, grammar, writing, geography, history, and culture of Ukraine. I am well-versed in this language, and able to offer language learning classes to anyone in need of help! Let me know what level you are and what you need, and we can figure something out :)

Spanish Lessons & Conversation with Native Speaker.
I am a 26-year-old Spanish master student at HKU, in Utrecht. Born in Palma de Mallorca (Balearic Islands, Spain) and having lived for 6 years in Barcelona (Catalonia), I am teaching both my mother tongues: Spanish and Catalan. I am very flexible when it comes to teaching, so I adapt to the student's needs. We can work on vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar. And we can just have regular lessons to exercise on the conversation as well. I am a musician, so there is also the chance to learn Piano and Music Theory in Spanish or Catalan. Please feel free to ask for any info you might need!

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.

Morgan
Spanish and English teacher or tutor for all levels (Utrecht)
Spanish and English teaching or tutoring for any level. Both are in the top spoken languages in the world and have become essential for good communication and blurring cultural boundaries. Spanish is my official native language but I went to an American school during my entire education which means I speak both fluently. My goal is to keep students motivated while learning or improving their use of a new language. You can learn the basics of Spanish and English. The class can also be focused on specific subjects depending on the students level: whether they need more practice in speech or grammar; or their desire to learn something specific. I can help with everything from the alphabet to being able to write an essay or taking an exam.

Vuoi parlare l'italiano? Italiano con Rob per tutti
Ciao, my name is Roberto :) 
I graduated in Political and Economic Science at the University of Milan. After working for a year for an American company in Milan, I moved to Australia, where I have worked, studied and traveled for two years.
It has been an incredible experience! I had the opportunity of visiting beautiful places, discovering so many different cultures and developed myself from a personal and professional point of view.
Since two years, I have been living in Haarlem - a wonderful city close to Amsterdam - and to the coast 🌊 - in the Netherlands. I love teaching and helping people to find out more about Italian culture, history, and arts. I would love to use all the modern techniques of teaching that I learned and practiced them with you. Teaching is an extraordinary passion! Parliamo italiano!
