Life coaching - The road to a new and positive life
At a certain moment in your life you can feel restless in one or more areas of life. Professional, financial, private or emotional. Life coaching is aimed at self-development. You learn to make choices and you are encouraged to achieve results and actually achieve your goals. Know that the key to success lies with you! It is no longer a secret that we are all extremely busy and think that we no longer have time for ourselves, for some free time. Perhaps you have made choices in the past that no longer make you happy and that you remain attached to. It is therefore all so easy to keep wandering in our familiar life while you realize that there must be more. As a result, we are not feeling well in our skin. We all recognize ourselves sometimes in the sense of 'lack'. Sometimes we don't even know what we want, what we dream of. We know that there is more for us, but we cannot see it. Life coaching ensures that you gain insight into your life again. Together we look for those insights, the causes and that new path. We work with all the potential you have towards that perfect life. The insight that you can take control of your life and finally change things. It's okay to dream and go after it.

Learn to play chess - tutorials on strategy and planning
I have been playing chess since I was 6 years old, individually and for various chess teams, mostly in Greece. I have won the Thessaloniki tournament for ages under 15 and have met Kasparov and Karpov playing in the chess olympics in 1986! I love this game and I enjoy teaching new chess players!

Special marriage coaching sessions for couples [ONLINE]
I am Fawzi, marriage coach and I offer marriage coaching sessions to couples who want to understand why they are not doing very well and want to give themselves a new chance to continue together in a joyful life. The objective of the marriage coach is to accompany couples in pain towards a better relationship, so that each of them understands the needs of the other, that each knows how to satisfy his "Love". As a coach, I can help you in several kinds of conflicts: communication problems, boredom, jealousy, routine, infidelity, problems in sexual relations, children, work, etc. And so that the interviews take place calmly, I use practical sheets that allow me to follow your cases and progress professionally. It must be emphasized that every conflict situation in life has solutions, except that sometimes we fail to be aware and wise to easily solve our problems and overcome them because of our sadness, boredom, nervousness or other states. unwanted. This is why it is better to find a "third party", especially a professional, who remains objective and who has the possibility of hearing us both, of understanding each other and of accompanying us to get out of our suffering and misunderstanding we do not need. -------------------------------------------------- ------- As for my education: The training I followed to become a marriage coach is certifying, accredited by two international accreditation bodies: the Datadock (quality standard number: 0025523) and the IPHM (The International Practitioners of Holistic Medicine, or, in French, International Practitioners of Holistic Medicine). This means that it is assessed and registered internationally. Here are some of the main focuses of this training: - The couple and its mysteries; - The couple and the vagaries of life; - Sexuality (How does it work? / Couple and addictions / Abuses and dangers). If you need my help, I am at your disposal.

Are you looking for a qualified native English teacher (British) with extensive teaching and business experience? If so, I would love to help you! I have a very simple teaching philosophy. Every single lesson must be challenging, rewarding, and fun – as the best way to learn is with a smile on your face. I adapt our lessons together to your unique needs and goals, including: • improving your accent and pronunciation; • helping you avoid steenkool English and typical ‘Dunglish’ words; • broadening your vocabulary; and • perfecting your use of tenses. Most important of all, I can help improve your confidence, which is the key to learning any language. A speciality of mine is Business English, so I can also help with everything from preparing for an interview or speaking in meetings, to giving a presentation. While my classes are 100% in English, I can also speak Dutch and Spanish. This gives me a real insight as to why students make certain mistakes, and how to best avoid them.

Vuoi parlare l'italiano? Italiano con Rob per tutti
Ciao, my name is Roberto :) 
I graduated in Political and Economic Science at the University of Milan. After working for a year for an American company in Milan, I moved to Australia, where I have worked, studied and traveled for two years.
It has been an incredible experience! I had the opportunity of visiting beautiful places, discovering so many different cultures and developed myself from a personal and professional point of view.
Since two years, I have been living in Haarlem - a wonderful city close to Amsterdam - and to the coast 🌊 - in the Netherlands. I love teaching and helping people to find out more about Italian culture, history, and arts. I would love to use all the modern techniques of teaching that I learned and practiced them with you. Teaching is an extraordinary passion! Parliamo italiano!
