American Native English Teacher - English Lessons for Children and Teenagers (In Person or Online)

Hello students! My name is Sandra. I am a native English speaker from New York State. I have a Bachelor's degree in Childhood Inclusive Education (Grades 1-6) from the State University of New York at Fredonia. I currently work at an international school in The Hague, and I teach private online English classes and private English classes to children and teenagers in The Hague. I have been teaching ESL (English as a Second Language) to children ages 3-16 for 5 years. I also have experience teaching English to a group of adults, and 4 years of experience working in elementary schools in New York and international schools in Serbia and The Netherlands.

I can provide classes to children and teenagers. I can help with improvement of speaking, pronunciation, reading, listening, writing, grammar, etc. My aim is to create a positive and enjoyable learning environment for my students. Additional homework can be provided to my students if requested.

For children or teenagers who need a tutor, I am available to help with studying, homework, or further advancement in English. Vital learning tools I regularly use in my classroom for children include educational games, activities, songs, and storybooks. Visuals and interactive hands-on learning are important to encourage students to engage and actively participate in their learning. For children, each lesson is aimed towards learning a topic such as food, animals, sports, emotions, and more. I provide the learning activities for class such as the worksheets and games created by me or games I have purchased. I incorporate reward charts with stickers and positive reinforcement as well. Based on my experience, I have learned to adjust my teaching style based on different students' needs, cultures, socioeconomic backgrounds, and learning abilities.

I hope you can join my English lessons! I can provide my resume, reference letters, or teaching portfolio if requested. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Extra information

The student will most likely need a notebook, pencil, and a folder to save worksheets from class.

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.
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.
Sandra came really well prepared with different options for my daughter to discover and pick up the one she preferred. She used a fun approach and respected her pace. Very professional and fun!

Jenevieve
English Language Tutor [also available for Math] , special needs education
I'm a passionate primary teacher with over 6 years of experience, and I believe that every child is capable and talented. I currently live in the Netherlands and have spent the majority of my life focusing on finding new avenues to work with children. My lessons will focus on enhancing your English vocabulary, reading, writing skills and Grammar. I am also a qualified speech and drama teacher, and wish to use those concepts in my teaching strategies as well.

Leïla
English and / or French classes for any levels by a bilingual French - English university student
I propose (online) classes for those who wish to improve their speaking skills in French or English, and become more fluent in one of these language. I can propose some more grammar based classes but also conversation classes where we speak together the language you want to learn ! I am a native French speaker and study in English at the University, and thus I am fluent in English.

Vera
Beginners and advanced Russian, English and international tests
I am a student in Leiden University in The Hague. I specialise in tutoring Russian and English. As a native Russian speaker I can teach you the basics of the language or more advanced structures as well as speaking, reading and listening. Besides, I have C1 in English and I am doing my studies in English as well. You can practice speaking, writing and reading with me.

Sinead
English lessons for speakers of other languages by CELTA qualified native speaker
I offer online or face-to-face English lessons to non-native speakers. I work with the student to identify learning objectives and any areas of weakness and tailor the lesson accordingly. Areas covered during the lesson include, speaking, listening, reading, writing, grammar accent reduction. I currently live in Den Haag, The Netherlands. In addition to private coaching, I also work for an online ESL company delivering English lessons to children across a range of age groups. In addition, I also work as an ESL proofreader and IELTS private tutor here in The Hague. I hold a BA (Hons) degree and have a CELTA qualification. Prior to a career in ESL English teaching, I worked in the UK national press for the Times and Financial Times newspapers. It was there I developed my proofreading and communications skills. In my spare time, I write articles for magazines and have had feature stories published in The Telegraph magazine, The Daily Mail and a number of health magazines. I have also written two language books. The first, 'I Already Speak Speak French!' is an illustrated book for children that covers the etymology of many English words to their French origin (attached is a sample of it for your interest!). It has been translated for the French market into, 'I Already Speak English!' The second book is called, 'Learn Business English FAST!' which draws on a teaching methodology used for effective, fast learning that I used whilst teaching English for the international company, GoFluent.

IELTS, TOEFL, School English Test Preparation Course
Do you need help preparing for IELTS, TOEFL, or your school English exams? In this Test Prep class we use real, former test questions to build confidence with answering difficult questions in an exam setting. We primarily work on speaking and writing skills, such as vocabulary building and grammar. For speaking, we focus on fluency and confidence building. Writing practice is typically assigned as homework and is checked during class. We will look at essay structure, transitioning, paragraphs, and vocabulary.

Shahnoza
Conversational English and Grammar for everyone; a lot of speaking practice
My name is Shahnoza, and I am offering English classes to everyone, whether you are a student who feels a bit self-conscious about your English or you are a grown-up who wants to broaden the opportunities and horizons. I always try to avoid formalities and make my classes (reasonably) informal and friendly. If you have (and with me you always will, I'll simply make you talk to me) some stories, I will gladly listen to them and help you develop your ideas. My goal is to make my students speak the language and understand why they should use this or that word. I believe that every person is a whole world and I would like to know this world and help my students show this world to people. Can't wait to work with you! :)

Jack
Learn English for all levels of experience from 'Hello' to 'Goodbye' and everything in-between
Hello, my name is Jack, a native English speaker originally from Manchester, England. I have experience teaching English as a second language both online to students in China.And in schools in Italy. I have a diploma in International Business Management from Northumbria University, and studied abroad in Sweden and Portugal and therefore know how important and daunting learning a language can be. I specialise in teaching English as a second language. My aim is to be the lessons fun and engaging. Depending on what you want to learn we can focus on grammar, sentence structure, building vocabulary of a particular topic or start at the basics learning phonics. If you would like support and tutoring on homework or topics you are studying in school I can support students with this and help them achieve in school. I can also teach Business English and help you prepare for a presentation or interview or help with your studies. My class would be perfect for either adults or children wanting to improve their oral and written English skills. Each class will be personalised to your needs and abilities with the first class used to evaluate your level and how we can best use further classes to improve your abilities and see results.

English for professionals (refresher, fluency, conversation ...)
***** My availability varies according to the slots reserved by the pupils / students. To gain efficiency, I will send you a link to my "google agenda". You will be able to position our sessions more quickly ***** Hello, I offer you my expertise and experience to (re) upgrade you in English. I can intervene at the following levels: - School: * (primary school: initiation) => Cambridge tests 'Starters - Movers - Flyers' & others. * (college-high school) => remediation / upgrading in grammar + other language activities such as Oral / Writing Comprehension or Continuous Speaking / Interaction) - Superior (CPGE, IEP prep, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First Certificate, Advanced Certificate ...) (Preparation for tests such as "Tremplin-Passerelle-Passerelle2- Ecricome" ...) (English for Interns in medicine ...) (Linguistics / phonology / didactics for the English CAPES ... or other competition like the CRPE) - I accompany and have accompanied many adults who needed to be / become truly successful in speaking / writing in English as part of their professional activities (fluency, accent reduction, grammar. ...) or as part of resuming studies. Note that I am not this young student who had a good mark in the Baccalaureate or this other who is supposedly bilingual. I am a linguist by training and author of a textbook in this capacity. I have been teaching as a teacher in the National Education since 1995. Teaching cannot be improvised. It is not an activity that we do "like that". I offer you the fruit of my expertise and my experience as well as the perspective of an educational professional who knows the system perfectly from the "inside". By the way, did you know that to have 10/20 in the Baccalaureate, it is enough to have level A2 (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd year) so I let you imagine the despair of students who are starting higher studies and who learn that they will have to obtain at least 750 in the TOEIC! (the equivalent of level B2!) to see their diploma approved. 2 tips for students: "your TOEIC / IELTS score, it is from L1 that you must prepare it" "if you want to be able to write - English read, understood and spoken in your CV - well it is also from L1 that you must train yourself to speak English, to read in English and of course to write. * Daily monitoring possible via the internet: to learn modern foreign languages, it is always more profitable to work a little each day. It is possible to consider placing slots of 15 or 20 minutes of intensive work on one type of activity several times a week. (See the "memorization" video in the 'Surfonsdoc Orléans-Tours' channel on youtube) -> Look for "debbinghaus curve" on google. * Each course is prepared according to your personal needs. Feedback is always given at the end of the session. * One of the fields in which I specialize is "phonology": intonation, word stress, connections ... In short, everything that relates to oral grammar. If you are tired of being immediately spotted as the man in the video "the i rabbit (you will find it in a few clicks on youtube)) See you soon! Please do not hesitate to contact me for further details.
