Spanish online lessons with native spanish teacher for adults and teenagers
I am a native Spanish speaker and a general language enthusiast. In addition to Spanish, I speak German and English. I am 100% confident that I will successfully teach you Spanish (while having fun and relaxing)! I've been teaching spanish for 15 years. I am 41 years old, graduated with honors from the University of Salamanca. My main goal in teaching is to make students feel relaxed and comfortable while studying. Do you already know Spanish? No problem! Rather than building the basics, we can design courses to suit your personal needs and preferences. We can write essays together, you can give presentations on topics that interest you or that I present to you, we can discuss current events, engage in debates, you can write summaries of newspaper articles, or we can delve into advanced grammar. Whatever you enjoy and need, we can do it together. All my courses combine speaking, listening and grammar practice in interaction with me. Unless you are a very advanced student, we work with learning materials created by some of the best language learning publishers in Germany. These materials serve as a common thread for our course, introducing new words, grammar and exercises at a good pace and in an interesting way, keeping you engaged and motivated. I also show you German food, music and places. In addition, I will introduce you to the best technological tools (homepages and applications) to boost your language learning and take it to the next level. Another important factor for me is the personal connection. We usually start our lessons with how the weekend or previous weekdays were like. Contact me now to arrange a first lesson in which we can get to know each other so that I can learn more about you, your needs and desires and thus design the optimal course for you.

Good morning! I am Grace, French teacher for FLE foreigners. I have a teaching certificate and have been teaching online for 3 years. My mother tongue is French and my second language is English. So, I speak French perfectly and have a good foundation in English. I did French-speaking school and academic studies in Cameroon and I spent 3 years in France to obtain my master's degree in accounting. Thus, I worked in French-speaking schools with preschool, primary, middle and high school students. Additionally, I have also taught university students and adults in general. For 3 years, I have been giving online courses on several teaching platforms because I like to share and I would like to help anyone who wants to learn to speak French as a whole for study, travel or pleasure. Much more to help you improve your level of French conversation and be able to speak and write French correctly. I like to organize lessons according to the learning objectives of each student, so my lessons will be adapted to the level, needs, interests and pace of each student. I have a lot of educational materials and resources to use in my lessons and the educational materials and resources that the student already has will also be used. You can count on videos, podcasts, articles, songs, literary extracts, photos, works of art, social media posts, TV shows, etc. as well as written and oral exercises, official tests, role-playing, etc. to progress at your own pace and independently. From a young age my great passion has always been languages and I stood out for being a very friendly teacher, with a lot of patience, very friendly and fun at the same time, creating a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere for students to learn. feel comfortable, comfortable and confident in their learning. I have taught many students of all ages, cultures and nationalities and they all achieved their goals in the shortest possible time. Oral interaction will be a main agent in each of the classes.

Your questions, your uncertainties and your errors will be the driving forces of our courses. I will be happy to help you achieve everything you suggest depending on your level of French!

Tanya
Spanish with a polyglot (8 languages) and Professional teacher, language coach
Hi! I'm Tanya. I was born in Italy, but for the last two years of my life I have traveled the world, mainly in Central and South America and the Middle East, traveling and working remotely. I have lived in Argentina and Guatemala. I am a professional teacher with 7 years of experience. I worked on the translation of medical and legal articles, panels in the glass museum in Venice and worked as an interpreter at the court of Venice. I have a degree in languages, I am certified in international law and I am a language coach. Language coach means that I not only teach you a language, but also how to learn new languages! I will closely monitor your entire learning journey, to get the most out of your skills! That's because I love learning new languages! That's why after years of studying I became a polyglot (8 languages - Italian, English, Spanish, French, Japanese, Arabic, Hebrew, Dutch) and I came up with a method to teach you the language you want to learn! Over the years I have learned to model my work according to the personal needs of each student and have developed a method that allows my students to learn the language in a fast and fun way. My hobby is my greatest passion is learning other languages, therefore from my experience I can understand many of the problems associated with learning a foreign language. My lessons are based on a specific method that I have designed to facilitate and accelerate learning. My classes are available in Italian, English, Spanish, French, Hebrew, Dutch and Arabic. GROUP LESSONS possible! See you soon! :-)

Alessandra
ESL, ESL for expat parents, ESL in the Netherlands
I have years of experience with ESL and have taken multiple courses training myself in the best ways to tutor in ESL. I am happy to teach all ages. I currently teach several adults and numerous younger students. I specialize in students who have recently moved to the Netherlands and have little to no experience with English. I apply a hybrid method of ESL and school curriculum. After working for four years as a private tutor in Amsterdam for numerous international families, I have discovered a love for teaching Adult ESL. My goal is to not only to teach ESL tailored to life in the Netherlands, but to also offer advice and support to expat adults around life in Amsterdam. I currently work with the parents of many of my students who wish to improve their English. I am a former primary school teacher (International School of Choueifat-Dubai) who now works exclusively as a private tutor. My students are mainly expats, though I also do have several local Dutch students. Having moved around quite a bit, I understand the stress families undergo adapting to a new school system. After four year in Amsterdam, I also now understand the unique stress parents also endure adapting to Dutch culture and regular use of the English language. My teaching methods focus on improving Adult ESL that is tailored specifically to life in the Netherlands. I design my teaching plans, with my students, to cover the most essential aspects of English that are needed to navigate life in Amsterdam. Moreover, I have a deep understanding of how English in the Netherlands differs from conversational English in other countries. I have a grasp of the nuances of both languages and the areas which pose particular difficulty. I really enjoy the motivation of my adult students and the unique friendships I have formed through teaching. I know how isolated some parents who are neither native English nor Dutch speakers feel when moving to Amsterdam. I am happy to teach all ages either in person or via webcam. **All rates include 21% KVK sales tax

(By Primary Education Teacher) Tutoring and Cito training in arithmetic, reading comprehension, spelling, Dutch language for primary school students
Does your child need extra attention in one or more subjects? No problem! After being in the classroom for five years, I fully understand that many children benefit more from one-on-one lessons. This can now be given more focused attention. Because of my experience in front of the class, I know which learning goals have been set for each grade. I can work with your son or daughter in a targeted manner, so that he or she can participate in the lesson with more confidence. I give tutoring and cito training in math, reading (comprehension), spelling, Dutch language & vocabulary. During my online lessons I use the screen as a digital whiteboard. That way I can visually support the lesson. In addition, I also use materials myself, especially with the young child, to make the lesson meaningful and also fun. The computer offers insanely many possibilities for this. I am familiar with many different methods, so if I know which methods your child works with, I can give specific attention (for example Mathematics for Mathematics or Steel for Spelling).

Li
Chinese language for daily communication practice and listening
This is a practising-oriented course for students to practice their oral and listening skills. It is also designed for students from a very young age ( suitable for kids and adults). For all aged students, the procedure is mainly carried out with daily communication dialogue, which encourages students to express their thoughts in Chinese. For kids who are under 10 years old, the course is aiming at enriching the students' vocabulary and improving their speaking and listening skills (e.g. interesting stories, popular songs and poetries, help reading books are also considered to be a part of the course content). Different levels of courses are designed according to sepcific requirements of the students. Besides, assistance for Chinese - related homework is also provided. For teenagers and adults, the course format is mainly as a conversation with friends in every course with different topics. New words and expressions can be obtained in a new topic which depends on the sharing thoughts on both ( the student and the teacher) sides.

Sofia
French lessons for adults | French Native teaches you how to finaly lose your fear of speaking!
Hello! My name is Sofia Bigares, and I've been teaching languages for seven years. I grew up in France and went to a bunch of multilingual schools, making me native in French and fluent in English. My lessons are heavily focused on practicality. You will speak and listen to French from day one. Grammar, use of language and sentence structure are still a part of the deal, but I focus on their functionality for the speaker. This means that, unless you are very interested in learning all of French grammar, I will not go deep into grammar topics that don't require us to. I provide: => Practical lessons, in order to get as much french out of you as possible! => A comprehensive study structure, designed according to your hardships and objectives. => Empowering lessons, in order for you to feel confortable to speak when you want to speak. => Ocasional themed lessons, to make classes dynamic and motivating. => Productive homework assignments, based on what your french speaking needs. => Exposition to the francophone world, in order to root for your imersion in the language. A little bit about me: Part of my teenage years were in Portugal, and growing up, I saw my peers having a hard time learning how to speak French and English. With time, I understood that traditional language teaching methods rarely ever insist on speaking skills, so I decided to take action and built my entire method on filling up that gap. I'm also an avid language learner, and I've been through it all: => The embarrassment of trying to speak to a local and not being understood in the least way; => The confusion of not knowing when to start => Feeling scared about making mistakes in my goal language and post-poning my learning because of that. => And all the hardships you can think of!! Recently, I've reached my 100th happy student. I want to help another 100 of you. Can you help me with that?

Primary school tutoring / homework support (arithmetic, reading comprehension, training for cito test, etc.)
If your child can use some extra support with, for example, counting, (reading) reading or writing, I would like to offer my help. I have been giving tutoring to children of different ages for a few years now. I also have a lot of experience as a babysitter and as an au pair, so I'm used to working with children and helping them get ahead and helping them see how much they can actually do!

Hamza
Arabic language, communication, writing and reading.
Arabic language is my native language, it's a beautiful language and very easy to learn, this language can be used in the north of Africa and Asian Arabic countries. I have programs and materials to teach and make students able to make big progress in a short time. I made the lesson as easy and simple as possible. The way and subject I teach will be useful to travelers and people who are planning to move to an Arabic country, depending on the needs I give the lessons to make the learning faster. My profile looks new, I just discovered this website days ago, otherwise, I have been teaching Arabic and English for more than 6 years. My name is Hamza, I am 24 years old I am from Morocco. My native language is Arabic and I speak English fluently and French also.
