English for executives working in all types of professions

I’m a native English business professional with over 40 years of international experience. During my career I’ve lived and worked in the United States, Scotland and Belgium while doing business in all regions of the world. I have worked at all lèves of management and in addition to running a business for a private company have also owned and started two other businesses on my own.

I offer the opportunity for professionals to use me as a sounding board for their activities while simultaneously fine-tuning their use of English. I’ve been doing this activity for over ten years and can provide references on request. My clients have been diverse who work in the fields of law, medicine, science, government, manufacturing, services, etc. My diverse professional and educational background gives me the ability to converse on virtually any subject that my clients require.

Cours d'anglais / Professeur diplômé d'un master didactique en langues et lettres modernes (AESS)
Ayant déjà eu de l'expérience dans l'enseignement en Belgique comme à l'étranger, en cours individuel comme en groupe, je sais m'adapter à différents publics. Je vous propose donc mon aide et donne des cours accessibles à tous. Je suis disponible pour des remises à niveau, pour des cours spécifiques concernant des sujets précis ou pour combler des lacunes. Je peux m'adapter à vos demandes et vous proposer des cours particuliers qui conviendront à l'amélioration de la compétence désirée (vocabulaire, table de conversation, cours théoriques, exercices de compréhension écrite/orale, etc...). J'ai été formé à l'enseignement lors de mes 2 masters didactiques (Langues Modernes et FLE) à l'Université de Liège, mais j'ai su développer et améliorer mes compétences à l'étranger tout en étant très flexible selon les divers publics que j'ai pu avoir. On me décrit comme quelqu'un de calme, patient et pédagogue. J'ai eu l'occasion de travailler avec des britanniques et des américains, je peux m'adapter à des demandes plus spécifiques concernant ces cultures.

Audri Sanhatul
Flexible English Tutoring for all age groups following Individual Methodology (also SAT and IELTS)
Hello! My name is Audri and I am a second-year student pursuing a Bachelor of Business Administration degree at KU Leuven. I have followed the British curriculum throughout my school life and English is my first language. I have 4 years of experience as a private tutor and 1 year of experience as a professional English instructor specialising in grammer, reading and writing skills. I worked with IELTS and SAT participants during this time. The aim of my classes is to improve spoken and written English for all age groups. My method of teaching is simple and flexible, we will first discuss and find out what the student needs to work on the most and prioritise that in lessons. In case the student is participating in tests such as IELTS or SAT, we will draw up a lesson plan according to test format. To make things fun for both of us, classes will be as interactive as possible :) Bonus: you get to enjoy learning from someone with a great sense of humour :')

Cours particuliers en Portugais brésilien - Anglais
Je suis déjà diplômé en portugais-anglais, et maintenant je fais un master en communication multilingue.

- Academic English Writing With A Native Speaker -
This class is for students of all ages. I teach students how to write assured and professional essays for their academic courses, ranging from undergraduate- to PhD-level. Students will learn not only the language itself, but also the conventions and styles particular to English-language writing, and how to properly introduce and structure their work. I will also proofread students' final theses for a discounted rate, provided we have met for more than five hours. I am a native English speaker from London, England. I hold an MA from Exeter, and an MPhil from Cambridge, both in Classics, and am currently studying for an MA at KU Leuven in Philosophy. I have written dozens of highly-graded essays in this time, winning several prizes, and have helped peers to similar success. I have also been a part-time professional proofreader for three years.
