Thomas
Chemistry Tutor from the UK (teaching beginner to undergrad)
An enthusiastic chemistry tutor from the UK who will teach you all the aspects of chemistry which currently don't make sense. Chemistry is an incredibly enjoyable and useful subject which many students struggle to grasp at the beginning of their studies. Like a jigsaw puzzle, chemistry becomes easier and clearer the more you understand. I aim to teach you or your child in a relaxed and fun manner which hopefully allows them to understand the nuances of chemistry. I have a BSc Chemistry from the University of Nottingham and I'm currently studying my MSc in Research in Chemistry at Universiteit Leiden. Also, I studied under the International Baccalaureate so I'm able to help with anything related.

Languages classes. Italian, Spanish and English at beginner or intermediate level.
I am a native speaker of Italian, and Spanish. Also, I speak English fluently, and I had training on this language my whole life. In these lessons I can teach you the basics necessary for learning any of these languages. In all these languages I can prepare you to face more demanding tasks and levels as well. Given the native speaker status in both Italian and Spanish the strength of my teaching lies there, considering I already gained experience in teaching these languages through this website. The classes will consist of oral, reading and writing parts, covering the language completely. However, this can always be adjusted to your needs.

Alessia
Improve your English - course for adults (conversation, fluency, listening)
My name is Alessia and I teach English to adults and high school students. I have been teaching English for over four years now with amazing results! Learning foreign languages has always been a great passion of mine: I speak four languages and I am currently learning a fifth. The moderate price of my lessons is motivated by a wish to make language learning more accessible as high hourly rates can be a considerable barrier for students. I know that learning a new language can be quite frustrating, especially when starting from 0 however, from personal experience I found that the best way to avoid frustration is to start practicing the language from day 1. I offer courses covering all levels and covering all aspects of the learning process: listening, speaking and reading. I prepare my lessons with great dedication, tailoring them to the student's needs and knowledge. I can deliver the lesson online, at the student's location or in a public area.

Rita
French talking and reading with vocabulary and grammar lessons
Do you want to learn a new language in a fun and interesting way? Why not french? France is only a few kilometers away from Netherlands ! French is my mother tongue and I have always been fond of learning new languages. I can teach you how to easily and quickly learn french. I master grammar, vocabulary, reading and writing methodologies. As a student myself, I know how hard it may seem to learn a new language. That's why I find interesting to gradually implement new items to the lessons. We can start with listening and studying french videos in order to understand the pronunciation and have a general idea on how to read and enrich your vocabulary. When I feel like you've became more confident, we can start focusing on grammar which is the trickiest part of the french language. I think that we should find pleasure in learning. Adapting my lessons to your necessities is my priority !

Naomi
English or Spanish tutoring, all ages and abilities; Grammar, Conversation, Practice
Tutor in both English and Spanish. As a native English speaker, I am competent to teach any level from Grammar and written English, to causal conversation to improve practical skills. As a near-native Spanish speaker (C1/C2), I am competent to teach any age and ability. Having learnt the language myself, I have an advantage in teaching it to others, as I understand where common mistakes are made and student are confused. I specialize in teaching Spanish to English speakers or English to Spanish speakers, as I can communicate effectively in both languages and appreciate where common difficulties lie. I have experience teaching a huge range of students, from pre-school children to adults. I use a variety of fun, effective learning tools and methods, which will be suited to each individual student. The student controls the content and the set-up of the lessons alongside constant, informal review to ensure we are always working together to meet their goals. We work at the student's pace, ability and preferred method of learning, tailoring our sessions to meet their desired outcomes. I operate in a completely honest, open environment, where there are no such things as a stupid mistake or question!
