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 particuliers d'anglais natif/English lessons NATIVE SPEAKER tous niveaux (Charleroi/Brussels)
J'étudie la langue anglaise et la littérature anglaise en Angleterre à l'université et serai bientôt graduée comme enseignante en Angleterre. Apprendre l'anglais ou l'améliorer avec une enseignante venant d'Angleterre est l'idéal; j'ai aussi accompli mes secondaires en Angleterre! Le prix que je demande n'est pas très élevé pour des cours efficaces. Je dispose de plusieurs manuels d'anglais pour débutant à confirmé. Je puis aussi donner des cours pour la littérature/ langue anglaise. Mes deux d'expériences en tant que professeur particulier en Angleterre m'ont apporté plusieurs acquis concernant les méthodes d'enseignement. J'ai appris à être patiente et à encourager d'avantage mes étudiants. N'hésitez pas à me contacter tant que je suis disponible car je voyage beaucoup. :-) Ma résidence est à Charleroi mais je peux très bien voyager jusqu'à Bruxelles (compter frais de transport).

Creative Writing
I am a writer, translator and PhD in literature and arts. I believe that act of telling and especially doing it in writing is not only one of the essential ways of expressing onself but is also a conscious contribution to one's life&wellbeing. The way I am giving creative writing involves references to narrative theraphy as well, and is called bookperformance. It has several ways to adapt and apply the person who wants to discover the strength of act of reading, telling and writing; beauty and power of words when they are read out, thought, spoken out or written. I guide you in English, French or Turkish. And, the writing process could involve all the other languages that you want to or need to express yourselves.
