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.

Sandra
American Native English Teacher - English Lessons for Children and Teenagers
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 and Students with Disabilities) 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.

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!

Karina
Spanish classes from beginner to advanced by a native speaker
I believe that learning languages should be fun and entertaining, not just a chore, so I have individual program for each student that I create based on the factors discussed before we start. After our first class I will create a program that I believe is best suitable, however it can be altered and negotiated per your request. Spanish is second most spoken language in the world, not only is it useful it's also very beautiful and rich with unique culture. If you always wanted to visit Latin America and be able to speak with locals, love Spanish music and wish you could understand it or simply need preparation for exam or enhancing your professional skills, I can help you with that!

Héctor

Jessica
English Language and English Diction Lessons For All Levels
Knowing English in the Netherlands is an important skill. Being confident with the grammar, comprehension and diction with English opens doors for you locally and internationally. I offer English lessons that focus on application for all levels and goals. You learn to correctly pronounce North American or Mid-Atlantic English (not-quite British), and have creative and goal specific exercises and lesson plans all tailored to your needs. I work with children and school-aged children, young professionals preparing for interviews, as well as adults wanting to sharpen their skills and take their English to the next level.

Noa
Spanish teaching degree student- looking for children and teenagers to tutor
The class is dynamic and personalized depending on the age and level of the student. As a student myself I understand how sometimes the theory is overwhelming, therefore I make my lessons organized, so the student keep motivated. I also try to do activities, to keep the class entertaining.

Zoe
Native Speaker - Spanish lessons for adults and children!
¡Hola! ¿Te gustaría aprender español? My name is Zoe and I am a Spanish native speaker from Castilla (the region of Spain where Castilian comes from!). I have always been very interested in understanding and learning more about my mother tongue and I have been teaching Spanish (for 7 years already) through private lessons to both children and adults who want to learn this language. My teaching method will be adapted to the student: I don't have a fixed method because I believe that each person learns better in a unique way that is adapted to them. I like knowing the student, knowing their motivation to learn and why they want to learn the language. In my classes I use various learning methods, based on play and understanding the logic of the language. Keeping it dynamic! Sometimes I follow the order of modules from a Spanish book, other times I work through stories or through Spanish novels, songs, movies, other people prefer to base the class on conversation, or learn in Spanish about different cities in Spain (language + culture), etc. I always adapt the lessons to the needs and preferences of the student or their parents. - The teaching method will be discussed in the first session, in order to have a clear idea of the student's goal and their preferences. I usually like to divide the class into different parts, depending on the level and age of the student: but there is always a conversational part in Spanish (theory is important, but speaking is when you learn the most). These classes are intended for both children and adults, people who want to prepare for an exam or just enjoy learning little by little, who consider Spanish a hobby or who need to learn Spanish for work, etc. We can do it online or in person and I can adapt the study plan to your goals and necessities! ¡Espero verte pronto! About me: I am a calm and understanding person, very organized and responsible. open-minded and always using imagination and curiosity when getting out of a problem. I am very interested in neuroscience (that is why I am so interested in adapting the teaching method to the student), meditation, yoga, mindfulness, and the mind-body connection. I am currently finishing my master's degree in classical cello at the HKU Conservatorium and would like to stay in Utrecht for a few more years.

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.
