English Writing, Tutoring, Assignment help, Essays

This class is for individuals who want to improve their writing skills in English. I have gone through the journey myself in the past so I am equipped with the skills to ensure your success. I hold a BA, MA and a JD, all from American universities.

I tailor each lesson based on the needs of the student, because I believe you need to know how to walk before you can run. I provide line-by-line feedback on your assignment and recommend sources/tools on how you can be a more effective writer.

I can be flexible about the schedule so let me know if you are interested but cannot make it due to conflicting schedules. I will try my best to match your schedule.

About Me

I am passionate about teaching because I have experienced firsthand the impact of good teachers. I implement a plethora of methods to inspire students to learn and feel engaged. Students tell me that they particularly enjoy my ability to connect theoretical concepts with practical examples.

My careful observations of the teaching styles, methods, and philosophies that I experienced throughout my education give me a valuable collection of effective teaching techniques from which I draw. I also have been lucky to be surrounded by wonderful colleagues who have received many teaching awards and who have generously shared with me their insights.

In closing, when I entered college, I vacillated between a career in science and one in economics. Although I chose to do the latter, some key things that I learned in science still drive me. For example, the first law of thermodynamics states, “Energy cannot be created or destroyed in an isolated system.” As such, I approach every class full of enthusiasm and positive energy, as I want my students to feel invigorated and ready to take on the most challenging tasks of our society. And, if Mr. Newton is right, then I should also expect the counterreaction to be the same, which in turn makes teaching an enjoyable endeavor.

Education

Bachelor of Arts, Pre-Law, Philosophy, Economics
Master of Arts, Financial Economics
Juris Doctor, Business Law
Phd Level coursework, Political Science and Economics

All my degrees (including high school) were attained in American institutions.

Experience / Qualifications

I have taught numerous courses in the past at high school and university level. I have always received positive feedback. I have tutored students in the past in New York City (where I used to live), so I am used to working with diverse students, who may have special needs or concerns.

It was very good
He definitely knows what he is speaking about. I contacted him to give a talk to me and several colleagues of mine and we all were more than satisfied. He was open to answer any questions and did not hid anything from us. Strongly recommend him !
Best professor, He answers my questions with relevant examples and in an easy way to understand
Fatjon is very knowledgeable on this subject and is very open during the class.
Do you want to understand the Trump phenomenon? Does the Democratic Party have a chance for a comeback? The focus of this class is to learn more about American politics and the pressing challenges that they will face in the next decade. Is American society becoming more capitalistic and conservative or is there something else going on? How can we address the polarisation in national politics? Is the local government the solution? What is the role of lobbyists, think tanks, and interested groups in all this? These are some of the questions that we will address. I can be flexible about the schedule so let me know if you are interested but cannot make it due to conflicting schedules. I will try my best to match your schedule.
Do you want to get into a top PhD program in the United States? Do you want to attend the law school of your dreams? Are you not sure which university is your best fit? I can help you. I have worked in the admission's office of multiple higher education institutions in the United States and can share my insights on how you can succeed. I am also willing to meet at a cafe and go over this, as I think a relaxed setting would be best. I can be flexible about the schedule so let me know if you are interested but cannot make it due to conflicting schedules. I will try my best to match your schedule.
This class is for individuals who want to learn more about the American financial system and why it is dominant. We will talk about the laws, ideas, and policies that help the American economy more than other countries. We will learn about the power of the Federal Reserve System and its complex relationship with other financial actors. I will share with you theoretical insights from leading scholars, as well as, professional insights for working with firms in New York City, Washington DC, and Minneapolis. I can be flexible about the schedule so let me know if you are interested but cannot make it due to conflicting schedules. I will try my best to match your schedule.
My goal is to help you with your career development and job search. I can help you polish your resume/CV, as well as, your cover letter. I also conduct mock interviews to prepare you in advance and help you come up with better answers. I help you improve your online presence, as well as, actively look for positions that I think would be a good fit for you. I can be flexible about the schedule so let me know if you are interested but cannot make it due to conflicting schedules. I will try my best to match your schedule.
Besides my education in Financial Economics, I have a lot of personal experience from working in impact investing and other financial institutions in the United States. I share my own insights with you about what the best trading strategies are and I help identify companies that I think will make your investment worthwhile. I am also an avid trader myself in my personal life, so I have some skin in the game and will always recommend stocks that I have myself invested on, so you know my advice is genuine. Otherwise, we can focus our discussion towards new trading tools such as cryptocurrencies, new trading platforms, and the challenges associated with them. Please feel free to reach out if you have any concerns.
As a coherent interdisciplinary movement, the roots of law and economics can be traced back to the mid-twentieth century, when Ronald Coase pioneered the foundations of the field with his groundbreaking findings through interdisciplinary approaches. The movement gained prominence in the 1970s and 1980s through the work of Richard Posner and Guido Calabresi, who took the economic analysis into new unchartered territories such tort law , criminal justice , and emerging technologies. Today, it is one of the most established disciplines in law; policymakers (elected officials, judges, as well as, public administrators) seek its impact and influence. This class focuses on the importance and impact of economic theory on legal jurisprudence in various pressing global issues: unfair competition, traditional and intellectual property rights, machine learning and artificial intelligence, global financial regulation, and legislative agendas. I can be flexible about the schedule so let me know if you are interested but cannot make it due to conflicting schedules. I will try my best to match your schedule.
The intent of this class is to provide an overview of the subject matter of international economics. It is relatively easy to motivate the study of international trade and finance. The front pages of newspapers, the covers of magazines, and the lead reports on television news broadcasts herald the interdependence of the world economy and financial results. Students may also recognize this interdependence through their purchases of imports of all sorts of goods, their personal observations of the effects of dislocations due to international competition and their experiences through traveling abroad. We discuss current political events and their impact on future economic trends. Will automation make us all lose our jobs? Does a trade war between the US and China necessarily mean trouble for the rest of the world? Is human capital (and de facto favorable immigration policies) the key to the future? Can an institution of higher education change their curriculums very often to keep pace with technological changes? These are just a few of the questions we explore in this class. I can be flexible about the schedule so let me know if you are interested but cannot make it due to conflicting schedules. I will try my best to match your schedule.
This class is designed to help you make sense of modern events as they relate to finance and trade. We will cover institutions like World Trade Organization, the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, European Central Bank and the Federal Reserve System. I will provide you with unique insights into these fields, given my personal professional experience. My goal is to keep my students challenged and to push them to think harder. I can be flexible about the schedule so let me know if you are interested but cannot make it due to conflicting schedules. I will try my best to match your schedule.

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.

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!

Simon
Language Learning Coach - Learn HOW to learn a language, use it with ease and have great conversations
“I feel stuck” These words I hear again and again, from beginners to advanced. The majority of students who come to me are frustrated. They spent many years studying languages at school. They’ve spent both their time and lots of money. Only to find themselves still struggling to form a sentence. Still struggling to be able to understand a native speaker. If you’re here then I’m assuming you share some of these same struggles. You get confused trying to memorize grammar rules, remember vocabulary, and makes sentances. You don’t know how to learn every day. You get distracted and then you feel too tired to keep going. Believe it or not, I’ve been there too and to be honest, it sucks to have another language is to possess a second soul Charlemage Now, I want you to trust me on your language journey Imagine finally knowing exactly what to do when you sit at your desk to learn a language. Imagine knowing how to learn grammar, how to remember vocabulary and make it stick, how to speak, and how to write beautiful sentences. Imagine going on holiday somewhere and interacting with locals. Laughing, eating, dancing and living life in a different language.
