Creative workshops to develop your imagination. Do you sign up to learn while having fun, craftmaniacx?
Are you between 3 and 9 years old and do you like crafts and literature? Then these workshops are for you! The individualized and personalized attention to each artemaniac, as I call my students, are the hallmarks of my teaching work; always under the premise that learning is a permanent and reciprocal process. Just like the narratives consist of three parts (approach, middle and end), my classes are structured in three moments: 1. ASSEMBLY: it is about the welcome, the time interval we dedicate to getting to know each other (preconceptions, interests, tastes, preferences,...) and introducing the day's workshop. 2. WORKSHOP: we will develop the workshop in question, always open to the creativity and essence of each art maniac. 3. REFLECTION: we will discuss what we have learned, as well as whether or not you liked the workshop and why, what you liked the most, the least, what you would change about it,...

Learn Turkish with having fun and practical, real-life examples
I am combining traiditional and contemporary techniques on education and searching for alternatives for learning and development, life-long learning opportunities, better communication methods, drama, and awareness raising sessions. My passion and dedication to life-long learning is the core of my working principle that I believe that valuable efforts conclude in visible outputs and can change people’s lives. As I have also completed my degree in creative drama, I regularly organize workshops on raising awareness on different issues, like body language, communication, strengthening creativity, basic acting skills, art, and culture. With all these tools, methods, and techniques, the classes become a real-life experience and not only a learning environment but also a sharing platform where everybody can exchange their experience, knowledge and feelings. It creates a cozy atmosphere where people have fun and feel relaxed. Learning does not have to be boring but can be fun and fulfilling. This is the main motto of the classes!

Reading & Writing Skills, Maths & English Language
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.
Improving Your Writing To Become A Published Writer
Using my wealth of experience in creative writing, production and publishing, I will teach you everything you'll need to know about your chosen area of writing, from turning an idea into a plan, right up to getting the finished article out there. I can help to bring your poetry to life, teach you the fundamentals of publishing a short story, or even help you to self-produce a play. 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.
