About Me

I was born and raised in London and then at the age of 10 I moved to Egypt. I finished the remaining years of my studies in Cairo where I did various tutoring and teaching jobs. In the 11th grade I tutored a group of children in grade 3. I carried on doing so for the rest of high school, along with tutoring students between the 6th and 10th grade. After I graduated I decided to take a gap year to work and learn a new language. So that's what I did. For the first three months I learnt french here in Brussels. Soon after I moved back to Cairo for a teaching job where I worked with students with mental and behavioral issues at a local British school. Throughout that time I gave some tutoring lessons to adults who wanted to learn English as a second language. I tend to treat my students as friends rather than just pupils. Research has shown by giving the student more comfort and a voice in the classroom, he/she is more likely to succeed. I believe the best way for a student to learn is through Flipped Classroom mechanisms and visuals.

Education

American High School Diploma received in an international school in Cairo, Advanced Placement (AP), Montessori Foundation, and currently doing my first years Ba in Political Science.

Experience / Qualifications

I have tutored many students while I was in high school for about a year and a half. I have also worked at a school as a Shadow Teacher.

English: pronunciation (British or American). No grammar lessons. Adults only.
I have facilitated workshops and given classes throughout my career all over the world. English pronunciation is essential these days because English is spoken everywhere and all the time. I followed specialized training such as the verb tonal method, Feldenkrais or mental coaching. We are therefore going to work in a slightly different way by combining articulatory techniques, movement, rhythm, intonation, warming up of the jaw and tongue, stretching of the neck, neck and shoulders to arrive to very fast results.

Elisa
English - learn by doing (from perfecting the language to teaching the basics to upgrading)
In the case of tutoring, I base my lessons on the subject seen by the student by explaining to him in another way with many examples and by making him practice as much as possible. In case of learning the basics, I have set up my own totally interactive method so that the student can practice and during which I speak almost only in English to be close to immersion during the lessons. Do not hesitate to contact me for: - learn the basics - prepare for a test - have support for your lessons - practice the language - ... Whatever your needs, I take a practical and fun approach to English because, in my opinion, it is the best way to learn.

I know you speak it. I WILL FIX IT! West Coast (California) English. We walk, we talk, I correct! FUN! Learn by playing !
Hello! If you can understand this message without having to translate then you are ready for my help! I am from California, and have been living here in Brussels since 2012. I am 39 years old. I speak West Coast (California) English. It's the English you hear in your favorite California movies. I love to help friends who already speak "european street English" while HAVING FUN! Did you know that 70% of learning a language is learned OUTSIDE of a classroom setting? So I propose we go to the park, we cook together, we go on a bike ride, we draw, we play. And of course we will talk a lot. When I hear an error I will correct you in a fun way, writing things for you, with FUN AND REAL examples, with drawings, ALWAYS STAYING 100% in English. That's correct, I will only speak English to you, because as you and I both know, you already speak English, and you have understood everything (or maybe 70%) of everything I just wrote. What you want is to improve or perfect your spoken English (we can work on writing, too). Immersion and fun, West Coast Style. And my university degree? Yes, I have two of them, in Languages and Literatures, and I speak 4 fully fluent languages, but for now I want you to learn by HAVING FUN! My friends can tell you how fun it is to learn with me. HOPE WE GET TO PLAY TOGETHER SOON! You can do it! Groups ok.

Need a boost in languages? I am at your disposal for private lessons in Dutch and English. I was a scientific research assistant (in England and VUB) at the university for 10 years. Having lived abroad, I have good knowledge of languages and I have a certificate of educational aptitude. I propose an individualized pedagogy, a help with the preparation of interrogations or exams. My goal is to advance the student without overloading him and give him tools to improve his methodology.

MATH / ECONOMY / ENGLISH private lessons tailor-made - Support & School Coaching
Are you a student and have this anxiety about certain subjects? Do you feel that someone else speaks another language to you during the course? Are you overwhelmed by the quantity and speed of the teacher? Are you just not satisfied with your results? Are you a parent and do you feel helpless when facing your child's difficulties? Do not hesitate! I am Liza and I have been helping many students in math for over 10 years but also to relieve parents from this feeling of helplessness in the face of their children's shortcomings. Math can scare some people. I myself went through a great deal of misunderstanding until I found the method and approach necessary to fully master this dreaded class of students. I offer private lessons to students with specific shortcomings, but also to those with more general needs. My classes are tailor-made for each student. I teach from the first primary to the retho. My method is simple and effective. As a school coach, my goal is above all to understand where the difficulties come from. Each student is different, so it is important to create an effective and tailor-made work methodology. Over the years, I have developed structured and fun keys for everyone. I learned about all the school programs in Namur, but also gained experience in other countries around the world. The purpose of the first meeting is to get to know the student and determine his current level of mathematics, what are his strengths and weaknesses, and what are the goals to be achieved. That is why, during the first session I do with the student a thorough work on the methodology to adopt to facilitate the understanding of the concepts and optimize their return. On the basis of this observation, I define with the pupil and his parents an educational strategy (notions to be reviewed as a priority, working method, duration and frequency of classes) designed to best meet the student's objectives. Then I adapt and base my course on the student program while customizing it according to the student and his needs. Even though theory is very often the least appreciated part, I make sure that my student understands its usefulness in different exercises and problems. To ensure good understanding, I organize exercise sessions and tests. The duration of the course is 2 hours. I always advise 2 hours because it's the perfect time to have the time to: - Identify and fill persistent gaps - Establish effective learning methods - Incorporate reasoning mechanisms - Learn how to restore your knowledge My students greatly appreciate the organization and the clarity of my explanations. Once followed and mastered, success is assured. With Liza it is a relief for parents and a success for children.
