My personal finding is that the languages taught in classic textbooks or apps are always slightly different than the way the locals actually communicate with each other. I will take this barrier away by teaching you the necessary expressions and the native way of speaking Dutch (or another language if you would like that).
Especially when it comes to tutoring, my classes tend to be very individual and creative. I base the topic on what the student is interested in learning and what is currently relevant in his or her life. This is how I make sure the student doesn't waste their money on something they're not interested in.
Because of my creative background (art and graphic design) I find ways to explain, understand and make learning fun. As a person I am driven and excited to get results and I try to inculcate this in my teaching in a relaxed environment which encourages learning.
One requirement for my lessons is a suitable teaching environment, for example a tidy and quiet room with enough space for the teaching materials. Since Dutch is a very active language, I focus not only on revising the Grammar and Vocabulary, but also on actively using the language through speaking and therefore improving the pronunciation.
I do not believe that there is just one right way to teach/learn. I like to adjust my teaching approach/methodology specific to the person, since everyone learns differently :). So I would start with finding out what YOU need to learn.
My teaching method depends on the proficiency in Dutch that the student has at start. Personally, I think the best way to learn a language is to speak it. So, there will be a lot of conversing and the topics will gradually become more difficult. That way, students will learn how to use words, in order to get the message across.
The first lesson is all about establishing any problems a student may have with Dutch and what they are hoping to gain from the tutoring. In my experience, the best way to learn a language is through repetition. But what student most often need is someone to give them confidence in their abilities.
I love to work towards a goal with the people I teach and knowing that attaining it depends solely on the effort which is put in, whether this goal is an academic one or regards your personal development or future career.
My teaching method is trying to get the kids/students to figure out the answer by thereselves. I answer a question with another question wich will point them in the right direction. I find mnemonics also a good way to memories what has to be learned. However, if these methods are not helpful (since every person studies differently) I would still try to help and explain in every possible way.
Depends on the group/ person and there skills.
I am a Dutch student studying in Brisbane for the next couple of years. I was born in the Netherlands and lived their most of my life. I am available most of the week and can travel a bit to get to you.
I have a fairly casual teaching method. Learn by talking, writing and listening about what is important to you.
I base my teaching method on my students. Everyone needs and likes a different approach.
The method used will completely depend on the student and their goal to achieve.
I base my classes on the level of knowledge and preferences of the student. We can focus on vocabulairy, grammar, pronunciation, writing, reading or even just small talk.
My lessons are geared towards beginners and intermediates. I like my students to have fun during my lessons so I would like to incorporate my student's interest in the lessons. Things like sports, music and other hobbies will be used to keep you engaged in my classes.
I have always been fanatic with languages and would love to share this passion by teaching someone my native language. The teaching method will depend on the needs and requests of the other person.
Every person is different and unique, therefore my teaching method is very flexibel. First of all, I will look at your current knowledge and your capacity. Then, we will discuss your motivation and your goals. The structure of my lessons will be based on this information.
I like to use the newest scientific based language teaching approaches and you can see my teaching in this metaphor "you jump in the pool of this new language, and i am always at the side of the pool supporting you and helping you so you never feel unsafe, until you can swim alone with confidence" I base my classes on the need of the student and go at a pace that suits the student.
My teaching method is based on your needs as a student. I will teach by being as interactive as possible and help you to find the answers yourself so you actually remember things better. We will adjust the speed of teaching completely to your learning curve.
I would like meeting with the student before officially starting lessons in order to learn his level and interests. Ask what specific goals he wants to achieve. Each student is unique, and it is my job to tailor the lessons to help the student achieve his goals. There is always the freedom to continuously alter the lessons to meet the student’s ever-changing needs and concerns.
My teaching method is focused on daily use of the language, unless otherwise requested. I myself have learned to speak and use English fluently, simply by just speaking, reading and writing English almost on a daily basis, but also listening to for example BBC, playing video games and of course going to university. I believe the best way to learn is to keep it simple and make it fun and enjoyable.
I base my teaching on the individual and shape my lessons and teaching style in a way that makes individuals understand the subjects the fastest
I prefer to teach by immersing my student in the language through conversation, and regular quizzing to see where more work is needed. If no level is present, a more theoretical approach is needed initially.
I base my classes on the needs of my students. The method of learning depends on the personal goal of each person: a grammatical reinforcement is only one of the possible ways and requires a different approach than when one first wants to practice oral.
I am a person who likes to help others. I use humor in my classes (with enough chance for students to tell me what they want to learn) to make learning a pleasant thing. My specialties are conversation, grammar and vocabulary, but I have experience with all disciplines.
I'm Astrid, a Belgian girl and arrived in Alicante threeyears ago. My mother tongue is Flemish, the language spoken in half of Belgium, Netherlands and some former colonies of those. The language is called Dutch, Dutch or Flemish as the regional dialect. In classes I focus on fluency. For me, it is most important to be able to speak of many things without fear.
Together we look at what your goals and wishes are and how we can achieve this step by step. I focus on personal improvement by practicing a lot and studying with the student where the points for improvement lie. I am very patient and find it important that you feel at ease during the lessons.
My teaching method is interactive and flexible. Together we create a lesson plan that meets your goals. Regardless of which approach we choose, having fun is at the heart of my lessons. Moreover we review during the lessons which approach works best. Some learners might profit from structured lessons, whereas other benefit from a more 'free' method.
The classes are fully personalized and focused on the individual goal of each student and respecting their personal preferences of method, topics, objectives and contents to be learned. For general courses: communicative approach, with an emphasis on the ability to understand conversations as well as skillfully communicate in Dutch. I also offer Dutch lessons for the inburgeringsexamen.
