Trusted teacher: An English or an Arabic class is an educational setting where students learn and develop their skills in both languages. In this class you will be guided through various aspects, vocabulary, reading, writing, listening, and speaking. The class usually begins with a warm-up activity or review of previous lessons to reinforce the knowledge and concepts already covered, and students are encouraged to actively participate by asking questions, engaging in discussions, and completing activities. In addition to language skills, the class often incorporates the study of literature, if a student is intrested in reading and analyzing literary works from different time periods and genres, exploring themes, characters, symbolism, and cultural contexts, some books could be recomended. Overall, an English or arabic class aims to develop students' proficiency in the both languages, enabling them to communicate effectively, think critically, and appreciate literature.

I currently practice Classics, Modern'Jazz, Street-Jazz, Contemporary Dance, and Ragga. At the age of 13, I joined a dance company that brought together different dance styles such as Neo-Classics, Break-Dance, and Contemporary Dance. I participated in many dance competitions in the pre-professional category, especially in groups, which returned very good results. I have already conducted a course of enlightenment (4 to 6 years), so I have a good approach to children. I am able to advance your child in the field of dance and aims to convey my passion.

Trusted teacher: Yoga is a way of life! All you have to do is set aside some time and leave the rest to me. The process will make you feel better. You will enjoy this journey:) Yoga is much more than what we see on social media ;) Yoga was first referenced in the ancient sacred Rig Ved literature. Yoga = Yuj/Yoke/unite-union-joining (with the divine wisdom of the universe). Yoga, according to yoga sutra philosophy, is concentration. It is a holistic science based on yoga philosophy. It encompasses the whole person: body, mind, intellect, and consciousness. We will concentrate on your personalized approach!! Especially for you! You will have my whole attention. Bring back the ability to breathe, relax, and regenerate while performing some amazing asanas, kriya, mudra, and pranayama. There are many more. After the practice, you will feel revitalized. Consider it. These sensations are positive and will carry over into your daily lives. Take a deep breath and don't think too hard. Schedule a session and enjoy the ride! I teach overseas, in addition to business organizations and individual customers. Aside from Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Himalayan, and Iyengar yoga, I understand you and work accordingly. So, let's see you on the mat. NAMASTE

Lydia - Antwerp, BelgiumRecently active$50
Trusted teacher: I am a professional pianist offering private piano and theory lessons to students of all levels. As a pianist 12 years of teaching experience and over 21 years of playing, I enjoy motivating my students with music of their own preferred style and interest, whether that be classical or contemporary. My main goal is to promote a positive experience and love for music-making during the course of learning piano. If the student is interested in a more serious approach, I can also guide preparation for grades 1-8 of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) exams. I also have successful experience preparing students for entrance to conservatory and for various competitions. Recently, my students have achieved highest marks in the ABRSM exams as well as prizes in competitions. We also have a class concert for interested students twice per year. I am happy working in both a relaxed and serious approach, we simply need to discuss the objectives of the student. My own studies are as follows: I have obtained two postgraduate degrees at the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp: "Concertsoloist" in Piano Performance and "Chamber Music." Prior to this, I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Piano Performance/Music from University of Minnesota and TCU-Fort Worth, TX, USA. My experience includes collaboration with many different instrumentalists and singers, performing as soloist with orchestra (also as harpist), and receiving top prizes in several competitions. While maintaining my performance and recording career in Belgium at present, I am developing my private music studio and look forward to meeting new students.

Sebastian - Marseille, FranceRecently active$56
Trusted teacher: I am a German native speaker and general language enthusiast. Besides German, I speak English, Swedish, Spanish, French and Italian. Having learned 6 languages myself, I am 100% convinced that I will successfully teach you German(in a fun and relaxed manner)! Therefore, I offer a money-back guarantee: Should you not be satisfied with the results of a course with me, I will reimburse you! I have been teaching since 2018 and am currently one of the most-reviewed teachers on this platform. I encourage you to pause here and have a look at my reviews. I am confident that you too will have a similar view after having had some classes with me. On top of teaching here on Apprentus, I have taught offline group classes for the Volksuniversiteit The Hague (A Volksuniversiteit (litt. folk university) is an institute for non-formal adult education in the Netherlands). I also taught for and underwent training with Berlitz, which is one of, if not THE largest language school in the world, operating in over 70 countries and 500+ locations. I am 33 years old, have an honours degree from Leiden University, The Hague, am calm, encouraging, and, most importantly, PATIENT. My main objective in classes is to make the student feel relaxed and at ease. I encourage you to speak without fear of making mistakes. In fact, I celebrate making mistakes. "Why?", you may ask. Well, making mistakes means that you are leaving your comfort zone. You are trying something that you are not already skilled at. You don't choose the easy path! People who never make mistakes are stagnant. Therefore, making mistakes should be CELEBRATED instead of shunned! So, good on you for mispronouncing "Nachmittag (Afternoon)", or using the wrong grammar when making a sentence! Here, let me help you get it right this time! :) Do you already have German knowledge? No problem! Instead of building the basics, we can design classes that meet your personal needs and preferences. We can write essays together, you can hold presentations about topics of your interests or topics that I provide, we can discuss current events, hold debates, you can write news-paper article summaries, or we deep dive into advanced grammar. Whatever it is that you enjoy and need: We can do it together. All my classes combine speaking, listening & grammar exercises in interaction with me. Unless you're a very advanced student, we will work with learning materials created by some of the best publishers for language learning in Germany. These materials serve as a red thread for our course that introduces new words, grammar, and exercises in a good pace and interesting manner which keeps you engaged and motivated. Furthermore, I show you German food, music and places. On top of that, I introduce you to the best technological tools (homepages and applications) to boost your language learning and take it to the next level! Another important factor for me is having a personal connection. Unless you prefer to "stick to business", which is fine as well, we typically start our classes by talking about how the weekend or preceding weekdays have been. I don't see my students as a resource to be extracted, but as people for whom I develop a genuine interest. Over the course of time, we both know what is going on in our respective lives and update each other about small or big life events. Having taught many students for multiple years, I can gladly say that I have made real friends thanks to our classes, some of which I even have met in real life. I am extremely confident that you very soon will have the same success that I have had in learning languages! So what are you waiting for? Get in touch now to book a first lesson in which we can get to know each other so that I can learn about you, your needs and wishes, which will allow us to design the optimal course for you. See you soon! Bis bald! Sebastian

Trusted teacher: The course that I propose is BILINGUAL FRENCH / ENGLISH, as well as 2 BOOKS. Age and musical taste are not restrictive when in the program, you can with qualitative daily work (not quantitative) quickly observe your progress. Here the pleasure of playing music is put forward. The kind of music you love most will be the focus of the course, their codes and secrets will be the focus of our study, that's what I want to share with you. We can do technical lessons and simply learn together how to play one or more songs of your choice or mine, enrich your game with this approach and your repertoire! (For example, We can re-arrange the pieces and make them more original by approaching the system (CAGED), and enriching their chords, resulting in new positions, new techniques and new sounds, using arpeggio techniques rather than strumming for 4-chord pieces, voicing and fingerstyle techniques, in short, expanding the instrument's playing fields and playing skills to keep progressing in your game and improve your rehearsals ...) If you make a request, this program is obviously accompanied by the pleasure of learning more in theory and being able to directly apply new knowledge on its instrument and identify its common or rare use in the pieces discussed in class. In this case, the theory is translated to be accessible to anyone, both for those who are connoisseurs and for those who discover everything from absolute zero. The exercises, songs, and theoretical explanations offered throughout the program are organized in an order of progressive difficulty. I wrote and produced 2 books of my method to learn the guitar and the music, that I sell to accompany my course and your apprenticeship in the best conditions and so that you can continue the course even at home and to review etc ... . There is ONE BOOK OF COURSES containing all the theoretical and practical program of the year, as well as a BOOK OF EXERCISE on the ranges and the modes that you can obtain directly. You can find here an indicative list of objectives that I propose in my theoretical program, which can of course adapt to your request. The general theoretical objectives of the course: --- Tuning / tuning and knowing his guitar: * Standard Tuning * Drop Tuning * Open Tuning * Adjust the optimal tension of the strings * Adjust the shaft axis * Adjust the action of the strings * Choose the strings adapted to the style of play / tuning * Change his strings -Know his chords: * Triads: Fundamental State & Inversions * Tetrads: Fundamental State & Inversions * The chord progressions of the Range * Arpeggio techniques (tapping, sweep, 1/2/4 fing.shape, etc ...) --- Know his scales and his modes * The Mode of the Major scale * 3 Modes of the Minor scale: Natural / Melodic / Harmonic * Modes of the Pentatonic range: 5 positions * Modes of the Blues range: 5 positions Etc ... --- Technique to the Pick / Plectrum / Tab / Pick (Electric Guitar): * Alternate Picking * Fast Picking / Tremolo Picking * Hybrid Picking * Palm Mute * Natural Harmonics * Pinch Harmonics * Artificial Harmonics * Shredding * Tapping * Sweep Picking * Legato Picking --- Strumming / Hand Picking (Acoustic Guitar) * "SnareDrum" percussion on the guitar * Arpeggios pinched with 4 fingers + thumb * Rasgueado (Flamenco Technique) * Generic Strumming * Fingerstyle Picking * Two-finger picking + Legato for fast melodies (eg a solo) -Play the metronome * exercises on click * practice on song riffs -Learn his favorite songs * without thinking about the difficulty, nothing is impossible with the right methodology -Improvise * choose ranges and positions * to place oneself rhythmically, to finish on the judicious notes -Theory of Harmony * Understand harmonization and its practice -Theory on the Melody -Theory of Rhythm

I am a student at Bocconi University and I am here to make life easier in maths, English and French for all middle and high school students who have difficulties in these often distressing subjects. Mathematics or secondary language courses such as English or French are often hard to understand in classes of 20-30 students in middle and high school, despite the importance of these subjects. Concerning mathematics, I myself have already had difficulty understanding mathematics but I developed a taste for it thanks to passionate and very educational teachers. I therefore put myself in the place of students who encounter certain difficulties in these subjects and I help them to understand by resuming the course and doing exercises with them until they manage to do the hardest exercises without difficulty. . For English, I had an English and French education throughout my schooling because I obtained my French baccalaureate with international option (OIB), which since this year has been called the BFI (international French baccalaureate) with 17/20 . I can therefore teach English as a secondary language and also give OIB/BFI, IGCSE and Cambridge lessons. For French, my mother tongue, I can teach it academically as a secondary language or in a more literary way because I have in the past helped some students for their French baccalaureate, in which I obtained 18/20 and 20/20.
