Academic Writing in the Life Sciences and Biology Tutoring

Academic Writing in English is an essential skill you will need to write a comprehensible science essay, a project proposal, or an application letter to successfully transition to the best universities for the life sciences abroad.
My lessons will help you learn how to write in a style appropriate for the audience and the purpose of writing. By the end of the lessons, you will have learned how to write academic texts using the correct spelling, grammar, punctuation, and word usage. I have experience working with the following types of manuscripts: essays, letters, theses, journal articles, slides, and textbooks.
I also offer high quality tuition in biology to help students improve scores on school and standardized tests.

Serdane
Science course (physics-chemistry-bio) for high school students.
My name is Serdane and I offer science classes to high school students who have a hard time finding a way to work that suits them. Extrovert and bubbly ... and above all, a lot of humor! Everyone learns in his own way. This is why I do not have a rigid method but adapt to the contrary to the specificities of each student. I evaluate its level, its strengths, its possible weaknesses or delays, and I develop my course accordingly. My priority: to restore confidence to the student: science is within everyone's reach when it is well explained! I believe in active teaching methods: I try to involve the student as much as possible, to make him discover what works for him, so that he can continue his career independently. Finally, I bring specific help when preparing questions or exams in a more difficult subject. My rate includes full tuition (private lessons, the ability to ask questions outside of class time, writing and correcting questions, etc.). NB: I am on vacation (without internet access) until September 9th included. Looking forward to reading you.

Tailor-made private lessons - Project support and follow-up: film, documentary, web video
Tailor-made private lessons - Project support and follow-up: film, documentary, web video with a filmmaker with 10 years of experience - writing, filming, editing, with material available This course is suitable for both beginners who want to understand their tools and more advanced who want to perfect their working method or their creative approach. My learning philosophy is based on the principle of continuous tailor-made monitoring of your needs and your means. We can meet monthly for long-term follow-up or weekly for a quick learning of techniques and working method. I prefer to start with a meeting. Thus we establish the framework and the objectives of the course. My watchword is friendliness. The rest depends on your desires and your means. We discuss: - Writing with method (Screenwriter) - The preparation of a film (Production assistantship, camera assistant, dop) - The shooting techniques (Camera, sound, staging, decoration, costume, artistic direction) - Data management (DIT) - Post production (Editor, calibrator)

Presentation Design, Speech Writing and Orathorical Practice
They say talking in public is the no1 fear in the world. How about preparing for it intensively, so when the moment comes, you will be confident, engaged and clear, even if your knees are still shaking? I have been coaching debate and public speaking to young people for 4 years. I have a lot of experience in speech writing and helping others prepare for talking in front of a crowd. What we can achieve together: - learn to compose a good speech -> with all the necessary elements in order to have a persuasive effect - design a killer presentation -> complicated ideas sometimes require visual aid for the public. Learn to let go of comic sans and how not to undermine a good talk with outdated graphic work - practice speaking -> 99%blood sweat and tears. I can help you present over, and over and over again until you are satisfied and confident that nothing can go wrong. Remember that all the great speakers of this world made history by practice, not by intuition or accident. My main goal for this course is that you would acquire autonomy to write your own speeches and manage presentations with less effort by being more and more persuasive.

Sheryar
General and Academic English taught by a Native Speaker and Editor
I am a native English speaker from USA and I specialize in teaching, exam preparation, instruction and text correction for several students and professionals residing in Belgium. With experience in 4 different cities across Europe and Asia, I take a multidimensional approach to my classes, tutoring and assisting with both Academic and Business English, to ensure that all my students are at ease during the lessons which results in faster improvements and undeniable results. The lessons cover various topics, mainly focusing on comprehension, reading techniques, writing skills, grammar, vocabulary, and day to day conversation along with accent training and basic language skills. My former clients include students from middle school, high school and college as well as professionals from various occupations. I have worked with them to improve their spoken and written English. I also tutor clients who want to improve their English at an academic level for exams such as the SAT, IELTs, EPSO and TOEFL. These include high school students, college students as well as professionals, ranging from engineers to young interns at the EU parliament. I assist with exam based preparation to achieve the desired results and my clients have not been disappointed so far. I have further proofread, edited, written and improved a large amount of essays, college applications, theses, personal statements, and assignments for various clients at an academic level. I like to make my lessons interesting, but at the same time, I make sure that they are as productive as possible. With a thorough understanding and experience of English grammar and literature, I further take care of ghost writing, proof reading and editing of academic and professional papers. Weekly and monthly rates are possible in this case. I have no issues meeting anywhere in Brussels, or at a location or town close to the city.

After obtaining a scientific baccalaureate with honors, I did two years of preparatory classes before joining the Ecole des Mines de Saint Etienne on competitive examination. I also did an exchange semester at the National University of Taiwan. During my years of study, I was able to give many courses mainly in mathematics and physics, but also in languages, biology and homework help to students of all levels. I am very patient, pedagogue and I have a real pleasure to teach. I remain available for any further information.
