Reviews (1)

Un cours avancé, du sur-mesure pour progresser sur la prononciation, l’écrit, l’aisance orale. Beaucoup de précisions dans l’approche générale et l’évaluation des besoins, et pour autant des conseils simples, des astuces efficaces. Je suis très satisfait des cours de James qui est par ailleurs une période sympathique qui met à l’aise dans le cadre des conversations in English of course !

Learn Spoken English for Communication and Public Speaking
These sessions are focused on English for people who encounter challenges in speaking and communicating and lack the techniques that are used for that purpose. We would develop situational vocabulary, corresponding verbs and adverbs that help transmit more precision when speaking. Our mission would be to see where you currently are in the language, strengthen any weak points and create awareness about points that need extra attention. These classes tend to take place in a more relaxed yet fun and stimulating environment. I constantly provide feedback to students about their progress and assign homework to ameliorate the practical and theoretical aspects of the English. This class is all about making English accessible and easy to learn to all through a variety of social and interactive stimulus.. You may request a full refund and get your money after the first class if you think that this class does not suit you.

Javier
English, Spanish, Social Sciences, Philosophy,
I am a qualified teacher of English and Spanish is my mother tongue. I graduated with a Master in Philosophy, a Master in Political Science, a Master in University Pedagogy (with distinction), and I am a doctoral student in Philosophy. I like the interaction with the students and the dynamics in my races. I have several interests and motivations (including musical composition and literature), so conversation lessons are my asset.

Mario
English or French lessons for all levels
I give English lessons for all levels. I have specialized in teaching for more than 5 years. Vocabulary, grammar, exercises and conversations are on the program. What better way to learn to speak a language quickly and effectively.

Lucie
English, French and Dutch academic reinforcement courses + CEB and CE1D preparation
If your child is having difficulties in school, I would love to be able to help them overcome them. I had the opportunity to work in several non-profit organizations (Schola ULB, Youth Club, CIFA, ABEF) where I helped young adolescents to understand their subject in French, English and Dutch. I also helped them prepare for their exams, including the CEB and CE1D. We will work together on their lessons, we will review the vocabulary and grammar they need to know and we will work on their difficulties in order to overcome them. In view of the current situation, I teach only online.

Yas
English : TOEFL and IELTS exams / School & University

Anglais pour les débutants, en ligne , acquérez des connaissances de base en anglais et devenez un apprenant autonome
Un élément-clé pour progresser rapidement dans une nouvelle langue est de développer son vocabulaire. Oubliez la grammaire pour un moment . Vous aurez beau maîtriser la grammaire d’une langue : si votre vocabulaire est limité, vous ne pourrez simplement pas vous exprimer. Mieux vaut s’exprimer en faisant quelques fautes de grammaire que ne pas pouvoir s’exprimer du tout ! Il ne suffit cependant pas d’apprendre des mots de manière aléatoire. Il existe différents types de listes de vocabulaire : Mais bien sûr sans la grammaire complément sera une erreur dans l'apprentissage , donc il faut les apprendre paralelement , c'est pourqoui vous aurez besoin d'un prof qui sait combiner les deux d'une manière efficace

David
Tutoring all school level Math&Physics, SAT/IB/A levels Math&physics.
I'm a Math&Physics tutor for school students of all ages, Mostly help graduate students in SAT, IB, A levels Math&physics. My classes consist of only one student because every student needs a different approach. I believe that the best way to teach someone sth is to understand how his/her mind works and after that find the most effective and convenient method for the individual. Teaching is one of my hobbies and I do this to help students by sharing my knowledge and skills, so if you think you are motivated enough to do your best then I will be more than happy to teach you! And if you aren't motivated enough, then I will do all I can to help you find that motivation that you need for success. Currently, I'm doing online classes with a virtual board, which makes classes the most efficient. If you have any questions feel free to text me, will reply to you as soon as possible ;))

Nguyen
General / Business English for all levels (all ages)
As a teacher, I always aim to create a fun and comfortable classroom environment for my students, as I believe that people learn best when they are relaxed and having fun. My students (usually aged between 5 to 60 :)) have a lot of opportunities to practice what they've learned (whether it's a new idiom or grammar structure) in-class through casual conversations or role-play activities. If you enjoy hearing random trivia about life in different countries (Vietnam, the UK, Slovakia, Belgium), or engaging in deep conversations about world issues, while learning new words and grammar structures, sign up!

Gabrielle
Practice and improve your English effectively
Having followed an English training from kindergarten to high school, I want to share the bilingualism that was offered to me. Because English is linguistically a major tool and it opens many doors, I want to teach the student how to master it at best. To do this, a course divided into two equal parts, the first to learn grammar and vocabulary and the second to practice.
