Trusted teacher: Whether your goal is personal or professional, speaking is a predominantly physical activity, relying on a body, a voice, a breath, a rhythm (diction) and an emotion (the imagination and the sensations, reflecting the involvement of the speaker in his speech. How to send a clear message? How to make the difference, to make an impression? How to regain self-confidence and control the management of his emotions? Knowing how to speak in public is now a necessity for the company and in the company. From a personal point of view, this is a vector for better relationships and optimal messages. On the phone, in a meeting, in front of a client or a banker (…), your public speaking must be effective and efficient with clear, simple and powerful messages, creating a match between the message received and the message sent. Simple and pragmatic tools will be presented and then put into practice for: generating listening ● making an impression ● fostering trust ● generating need ● motivating teams by explaining a strategy ● getting messages across within groups. Controlled, the method allows: • improve self-confidence and stress management with the development of the speaker's fluency (verbal-bodily), his public speaking and his sense of repartee and improvisation • to work on his ease, leadership, his NLP, his charisma, his creativity and to go towards a certain personal development, through a set of scenarios * improve the characteristics of the spoken voice (timbre, pitch, intention, flow) Completed by basic exercises (diction, voice, presence, breathing, presentation, time management ...), role plays, improvisations and simulations will be set up. With the key words: pronunciation, rhetoric, verbal and non-verbal communication, diction / articulation, the sense of repartee, structured speech (…). The goal is not only to focus on verbal communication but also on nonverbal communication, so as to make the control of his body, his voice (...), a real and lasting strength. Depending on the interaction between the trainer - coach and the one who consults, there is no single way to operate: each type of session depends on the needs and difficulties of each. In all cases, it is very often a question, while adapting to your own needs and after having precisely diagnosed your desired objective and the blockages encountered, to combine the theory (the bases of the studied concept, for example NLP / information asymmetry / the "how to say no" / the tools of non-verbal communication or the application of kinaesthesia) and its application (through exercises and direct applications). For example, are discussed: - the fundamentals of public speaking: breathing, gaze and body language - diction and elocution: rhythm and range of your voice - management of your emotions and your emotional overflow (example: stress) - work on the body, to amplify your charisma and ensure consistency between your message and your body ... with the aim of: * Enhance your presentation and arouse interest by focusing on your strengths, your qualities ... your personality * Match the content and form of your message * Improve your charisma, your self-confidence and the benefits of your emotional intelligence Postgraduate School Training & Ivy league college in the United States, specialized and worked for over 13 years, in Europe and North America, in the field of communication and public speaking in renowned public and private international institutions, involved in forums and conferences, and focused on two areas: training and coaching, with the key words pedagogy and careful methodology.

Trusted teacher: In the modern world, the significance of poetry is overlooked. From Aristotle to Derrida (the range is not comprehensive), literary theory has maintained that a poem's power is measured in its affect. Throughout this course, our goal will not be to make inscrutable poetic analysis - though the first part of the lesson will be spent analysing word choice, meter, line length and spaces of an English poem written between pre-modernism and postmodernism. Rather, through our perusal of poetic form we will be able to ground our work, somewhat modestly, in the English poetic tradition. Before the first class you will send me some of your own work so I know how to build or refine aesthetic temperament. I have been writing poetry for ten years and two years ago I published a chapbook at a press with competitive standards, and I am currently working on a full-length collection. If you wish to take up poetry seriously, time is needed and an eye for detail is essential. I look forward to us broadening our aesthetic sensibilities together.
Lara - Leuven, BelgiumC$56
Trusted teacher: Do you like to sing and want to develop your voice? Great, because singing is great fun and healthy! During my lessons we will explore the possibilities of your voice together. The development of a healthy, natural voice and pleasure are central. That is why the lessons are fully adapted to your qualities, taste and pace. Together we work on a solid singing technique, breathing, articulation, interpretation, musicality and voice hygiene. We explore the classical singing repertoire and look for music that fits your voice. You can also make a trip to other genres (jazz, pop, musical, etc.) You learn to use your voice from a classical approach, but with a good singing technique you can handle a lot of styles! Why you should come to class: - You have always wanted to learn to sing, with or without a specific goal in mind - You are curious about the possibilities for (further) developing your voice - You are looking for a creative outlet - You suffer from a often tired speaking voice and want to make it stronger - You sing in a choir and you want to work on your singing technique or you need some extra help while studying - ... Whatever your motivation, you are always welcome! Do you have questions or doubts about whether singing is something for you? Do not hesitate to contact me.

Before I begin the Reading & Writing, Maths or English Language tutoring, I assess the child's needs and talk to them and their parents about the support that they would like. I aim to make my sessions as interesting and creative as possible to engage the children and ensure effective learning. The session is spent primarily with me teaching or working through a problem with a child. There's little to no benefit in a child working tirelessly through a task independently with me just sitting watching! As a father, a football coach and a former student with two A*s (one in Further Mathematics) and 5 A grades in my GCSEs (one in English Language), I understand how difficult it can be to support your own child in their learning. I will therefore also support with school homework and extra reading when required.

Finding your own artistic expression or access is an experimental adventure, because everyone brings different requirements and talents. These first need to be thoroughly examined and then developed in a targeted manner – but also with great sensitivity. It doesn't matter whether you want to learn a certain technique or theoretically underpin and classify your previous work, whether you are primarily interested in self-knowledge and the discovery of your creative potential, or whether you want to gain more access to and fundamental knowledge of contemporary art - whatever is always your concern, I am happy to support you. As a busy academic artist who has been working professionally for a good twenty years, I can convey numerous techniques in the areas of painting, graphics, sculpture and performance. In an initial discussion, we analyze the personal reasons for your artistic interest and any artistic goals. Accordingly, I develop an individual curriculum that suggests both practical and content (eg literature tips) - a range of courses from which you alone can choose, because only you can ultimately know where the journey should go. Arrange an initial consultation with me in my studio in the 6th district in Vienna or via Skype. I look forward to meeting you!

I prefer a collaborative approach to teaching, where student and teacher work together to bring out each others potential. I like to tailor the sessions to their interests, getting a flowing conversation and finding the core of the students needs. I feel it's most important to develop a learning plan around the student.
