Before moving to Bxl I used to teach and was a co-founder of the Enable Music - Electronic Music School (an electronic music production and composition school in Melbourne). If you are interested in private lessons please get in touch. Lessons can be done personally in Brussels or via skype. Lessons include a collaborative Dropbox folder of tutorial materials and options for screen sharing during lessons. Content is specifically tailored to each student’s needs and interests. I have also released the only chord reference for the Ableton Push.

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.
