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 26 year-old recently graduated master's student originally from the US, currently working in a neuroscience/psychology lab. 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 clinician scientist eventually, where I will teach alongside my clinical work and research. 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!

Alexandra is an amazing tutor.
Hello! I'm Alex and I was born and raised in the US, but my ancestry is 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 :)

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!

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.

IB English, TOK, IB History, and Essays/Research Skills
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. Additional qualifications: IB geography Certified to teach middle to high school levels in Ontario, Canada Certified to teach in the Netherlands in the international sector Flexible teaching style based on teaching in Central Asia, East Asia, Europe, and North America

Modern Greek: an interactive online approach to master speaking, reading, writing, spelling, vocabulary and grammar.
I specialize in teaching Greek to beginners and intermediate students, providing them the foundation to master this difficult language. I cover topics such as word order, grammar, spoken vs. written Greek, conversational and every day Greek, as well as spelling, writing, and pronunciation. Each class can be tailored to the students individual needs. This class is for anybody who just wants to improve speaking/writing, as well as for those just starting out. Lessons can be given online, or in person. Greek is a language that is increasingly spoken, and is useful in many aspects of life, including but not limited to: biology, geometry, medical terminology, etc. With Greece's economy growing, it is an ideal destination to move either as an expat, digital nomad, or as a startup company. I look forward to helping you on your journey of acquiring this language!

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.

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.

Marcela Rivera
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.
