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.

Private lessons of Brazilian Portuguese - English
I already have a degree in Portuguese-English, and now I'm doing a master's degree in multilingual communication. I believe that pronunciation is very important for good communication, so I try to help my students with that. I love grammar and grammatical differences between languages. I think we learn more when we learn while having fun.

Day
English Tutoring - For Secondary or Tertiary Students
Hi there! My name is Day and I've recently moved to Gent to study Secondary School Education. Before the semester begins in September, I have some extra time on my hands, hence it's a great time for me to do some tutoring on the side. I have a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration and Marketing from the McIntire School of Commerce at the University of Virginia (Ranked the #2 business school in America). I taught English as a second language to Japanese students when I lived in Fukuoka, and taught Japanese to school children in South Africa. I speak English, French, Japanese, and am working now to learn Dutch. As for the location, it would be great to meetup in the Gent city center (from, say, Post Plaza, down to Gent Vogelmarkt). We could work at a coffee shop or tea house, and since I'm keeping my price as low as possible, you could buy us both a coffee ;) My schedule might be able to open up in the early afternoon as well: let me know if there are certain times you would like to work that aren't listed as available on my calendar.

Mike
Math, Chemistry, Physics, Science, Learning to Study
I am a civil engineer graduate, but I prefer to describe myself by my passions: I write books, I learn the piano, I do basketball and a little bodybuilding, I create board games. I am a self-taught person whose true talent is to identify the weaknesses in all learning and to implement the necessary means to overcome them. I am able to understand virtually any material with the syllabus, and then to be able to help someone who understands less well. I gave many courses in math and science during my studies, as well as courses to struggling primary school children.
