English Lessons for Children and Teenagers - American Native English Teacher

Hello parents! My name is Sandra. I am a native English speaker from New York State. I have a USA teaching license and a Bachelor's Degree in Childhood Inclusive Education (Grades K-6) from the State University of New York at Fredonia. My experiences include teaching at primary international schools in Belgrade, Serbia for 2 years and 3 years at international schools in The Hague, Netherlands. I have worked at two IB primary schools. Alongside teaching at international schools, I have 8 years of experience teaching English. I also have experience teaching grade 1 and 3 in elementary schools in New York State. I have taught children from 2-17 years old and adults. My students range in levels from beginners who are new to learning English, to fluent English speakers that need support or would like to further excel or maintain their fluency. Based on my experiences, I have learned to adjust my teaching style based on different students' needs, cultures, socioeconomic backgrounds, and learning abilities.

Lessons are provided to children and teenagers. Lessons are customized to the learning needs of your child. Whether that be learning English for the first time or practicing improvement of speaking, reading, comprehension, pronunciation, listening, writing, grammar, etc. Lessons can be aimed towards learning a topic such as food, animals, sports, emotions, and more.

For children who are fluent English speakers, tutoring can be given to further excel in particular areas. Subjects that interest the student such as science, history or world topics can be incorporated into the lesson to broaden their knowledge. Support can also be provided in learning organizational skills, research, and mini projects for older children. I am available to help with studying, homework, or school projects. For online learning, I use a variety of platforms, websites, educational games, and e-books to reach the learning goals of my students. Additional homework can be provided if requested.

Depending on the students age, lesson duration is adjusted. If you are looking for lessons for siblings, please reach out to me to discuss the best schedule for your children. The aim is to create a positive and enjoyable learning environment for all my students.

I hope you can join my English lessons! Please reach out to me if you have any questions. I can provide my resume, reference letters, or teaching portfolio if requested. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Sandra was great at interacting with my two young girls (6 & 8 years old). The lesson was fun and educational, exactly what is needed. Sandra's experience with kids shows!
Sandra is very patient with my daughter. And my daughter really has fun with Sandra during the class. She is making progress right now.
Sandra is helping my teenage daughter to improve her English skills. She is organized and always plan the classes in advance. Sandra is very responsible and also friendly, I would recommend her.
Our children really enjoyed the class.
Sandra is teaching my 2 and 4 year old. They are brought up bilingual and Sandra is great in helping us to educate and develop their English further. We found it important that learning is fun and Sandra incorporates this in the assignments. Sandra’s assignments are playful, but at the same time very educational and brings their English to the next level. The boys are always eager to see her again. Sandra is friendly, patients, organised and great with kids. Would definitely recommend her.

English lessons with a CELTA-qualified native English speaking teacher / Engelse lessen met een ervaren CELTA-gecertificeerde docent
Are you looking for a qualified native English teacher (British) with extensive teaching and business experience? If so, I would love to help you! I have a very simple teaching philosophy. Every single lesson must be challenging, rewarding, and fun – as the best way to learn is with a smile on your face. I adapt our lessons together to your unique needs and goals, including: • improving your accent and pronunciation; • helping you avoid steenkool English and typical ‘Dunglish’ words; • broadening your vocabulary; and • perfecting your use of tenses. Most important of all, I can help improve your confidence, which is the key to learning any language. A speciality of mine is Business English, so I can also help with everything from preparing for an interview or speaking in meetings, to giving a presentation. While my classes are 100% in English, I can also speak Dutch and Spanish. This gives me a real insight as to why students make certain mistakes, and how to best avoid them.

Liudmyla
English language for Adults, Boost your Listening and Speaking.
I am a cheerful, optimistic and mindful teacher. I have been giving this course for more than 6 years. The class provides a flexible set of teaching materials, which can help you to improve your speaking and grammar skills at the same time. At the lesson different interactive activities, such as watching authentic videos and listening popular songs, are used to level up your English as fast as possible. Studying can be funny and fascinating. Teaching experience and friendly ambience can break down the wall of your silence. The course mission is to boost your vocabulary and communication. I provide all the materials and interesting homework tasks, which are prepared personally for every student.

Acine
Learn English Grammar And Paragraph Writing for Beginners, Intermediates and advanced ( A1 / A2 / A3 / B1 / B2 / B3 / C1 / C2 )
These sessions are focused on English for people who encounter challenges in writing, speaking, reading and listening and lack correct grammar and skills. We would develop situational vocabulary, corresponding verbs and adverbs that help transmit more precision when using English. Our mission would be to see where you currently are in the language, strengthen any weak points and create awareness about points that need extra attention. Together we would go through all the English aspects that you should be aware of and implicate the knowledge aquired in real interesting topics and activities. These classes tend to take place in a more relaxed yet fun and stimulating environment. I constantly provide feedback to students about their progress and assign homework to ameliorate the practical and theoretical aspects of the English. This class is all about making English accessible and easy to learn to all through various social and interactive stimulation You may request a full refund and get your money back after your class if you believe that it doesn't suit you .

Klaudia
English for adults with low-bandwidth contact, very flexible.
Ahoy! Thank you for wanting to practice, learn, read or prepare for exams in English. My name is Klaudia and I am an English freak / linguist. I have been teaching children, teens and adults for 5 years. 2016-2017 I had stayed in London where I learned my neutral accent. In 2019, I got TEFL 120h and from one year I teach professionally. Lessons are always tailored to what you need. I believe in individual attention. What interests you, we'll talk about it in English. I prepare for every lesson and expect the same from you, that's why I always send you emails or messages so that your English stays active in your head even outside of class. While class we use a number of assistance resources: handouts, interactive media web sites, games, music, comics, books, news and all. The biggest benefit of my approach is flexibility. I make slots to use in your calendar. The more you take a class, the faster you will see the progress. I think one lesson a week is fine, but one lesson every 2 weeks is an absolute minimum. Learn quickly when you want and enjoy using English. I prefer to teach online because of corona, but I will come to you up to 20 km from Amsterdam.

Khatchik
Mathematics tutoring for primary school students.
Is your child in primary school and does maths require tutoring? Does he think math is stupid? Turn me on! With fun and funny tricks and mnemonics, your child will quickly change his mind. Creating a good pedagogical climate and building a rich learning environment is always my goal. I stimulate the students to discover autonomously, to discuss together, to experience and to come to conclusions. My job is not to fill a barrel, but to light a fire. I am also constantly working to keep my students in the zone of closest development. In this way I promote their constant development and growth.

Daniel
IELTS Academic/TOEFL iBT Offline/Online Preparation
Taking IELTS Academic is a perfect opportunity to get into the university of your dreams! As someone who gave it myself, scored 7.5 overall, and was accepted to the University of Amsterdam, I know how to prepare you efficiently for the shortest time. At a lesson, I'll review your strengths and weaknesses and will make an individual plan from scratch that we'll be sticking to during our preparation. I'll also share my own tips and tricks that helped me confidently pass the test.

Paul
French and/or English (literature, grammar and syntax)
I specialize in tutoring English and French as they are both my native languages. I have extensively studied French and English literature for more than 10 years and would wish to convey what I've learnt to other students. My goal is to keep students at a high level with their foreign language courses and to maximize their interest for both of these beautiful languages. I assign homework after every class in order to keep the student captivated but mainly to make him/her improve.

English Lessons - Learning Conversations with Experienced Teacher
These classes are conversation based. The conversation and friendly and enjoyable. We usually have fun! As a non-Dutch speaking, and a native French/English Bilingual, I will not use any Dutch as a basis for learning. The lessons will be 100% English. Special focus on speaking, while improving both reading and structural understanding. These sessions are conversation based, supplemented with reading and writing exercises, and other activities! Emphasis on specific grammatical rules and items to target recurrent mistakes. ABOUT ME I am a 29-year-old French-American Anthropology Research Master's student of the University of Amsterdam. Before studying Anthropology, I worked as an English Teacher for five years for the French National Education Ministry. I worked as a teacher in different settings: middle school and high school. I also regularly taught English for adults, including Natixis financial group. DURING CLASS I draw special attention to specific standards of current English: -> Key phrases, word order, wording, register of language, use of specific grammatical items, idioms, intonation, pronunciation, other tips and tricks. -> Interactive training focused on realistic contexts and topics you are interested in. -> Continuous feedback -> Help with specific objectives: Digital communication (personal and professional)
