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.

Estefanía Belén
University teacher of Spanish for foreigners
Spanish is a language that is spoken worldwide. Currently, it is necessary to learn different oral and written communication techniques to interact with other cultures. I propose Spanish classes where we will work with innovative materials to focus on both orality and reading and writing of the language.

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! :-)

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!

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

BEGIN WITH YOUR BODY LANGUAGE ENGLISH-TAGALOG-ENGLISH
Begin the Language with your Body parts. It will help us understand what is the word (foreign language) by introducing the names of our Body. Language is a very meaningful way of communication but when we use it without knowing it and its purpose, we will get lost in translation. ENGLISH-TAGALOG-ENGLISH Body Parts Head-Ulo Hair - buhok Eyes - mga mata Nose - ilong Mouth - bibig (close), bunganga (open wide) Lips - Labi Cheeks - mga pisngi or pisngi Ears - mga tainga Neck - leeg Shoulder - balikat Chest - dibdib Heart - puso Breast - suso (girl/woman) Nipple - utong Stomach - tiyan Belly fat - bilbil Belly button - pusod Legs - mga hita Feet - mga paa Arms - mga kamay (whole arm) Hands - kamay Fingers - mga daliri With these words, we will be able to effectively communicate with another person (even with the same native language). For Foreigners who want to learn English-Tagalog-English. This should be learned while we mix the words accordingly. For example: We begin the lesson with translating the parts of our body into English-Tagalog-English. Then when it's breaktime we take our run-time by walking on the streets. That is the time when we mix words into our Focus - Subject. Which is the Parts of the Body. e.g: Crossing the road or streets, translating our action into Tagalog words. Ordering the food, counting the money etc. Then after the break, we review what we have learned and continue, including the words (that students used to say they want to learn). The Basic words (Greetings), Common words (Phrases - related to travel) Instructional words ... (please give comment and opinions on this). Expression words (these words are a useful words to most of the people) Beginner (translating the words into Tagalog - English). Language is Fun. Communicate even without words.

(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).

Arabic lessons for beginners, French speakers, English speakers, children and adults
Learning a new language can be difficult for some Especially when it comes to a language as rich and interesting as Arabic. As an Arabic language teacher, this experience taught me that learning is easy if it is fun and we are patient and dedicate ourselves full time to this ongoing process that is the educational process. You can learn the Arabic language remotely thanks to continuous and integrated courses according to your level and according to your request (learning to read and write, learning grammar, grammar courses, communication courses....etc. ) Through the use of modern technologies such as various applications (Zoom, Google Meet, Classroom, Google Drive..) and various programs such as (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), various educational images and videos can also be used.
