Reviews (1)

Heel boeiende ervaring. Ik heb veel bijgeleerd. Soms verrassende informatie ivm zaken waar ik me niet van bewust was.
DIY skills are very vital especially when you have a certain budget to adhere to after you consult your nearest Home Depot or Brico and find out that quotation cost and estimations are quite expensive! With my assistance you could cut cost and get your home or renovations done in your own unique time, pace, style, budget and taste especially in the era of DIY! I could either assist you or take charge...the ball is in your court!
As you acquire a new skill or enhance the proficiency of a new language skill, you will be guided in grammar, vocabulary, conversations, dictions and oral articulations to aide you in communicating better with other English speakers worldwide...conversational dates, outdoor excursions & day-day routine exercise can be requested. Test preparations are inclusive! IELTS, TOEFL, General or Academic!

Work your diction to have a beautiful voice and / or a beautiful accent / Brussels
This course is aimed at those who evolve in the French language and of which it is not the native language. But also to people with a strong accent and who would like to reduce it. The work that I propose is based on my speaking techniques from theater and singing and will allow you to have a beautiful diction, speak less quickly and more clearly. This course is also intended for professionals of the communication (singers, comedians, journalists, lawyers, doctors, lecturers) wishing to develop their oratory potential or to address a specific question. Contact me, I would be happy to help you!

Intercultural negotiations, Public Speaking, feeling comfortable in new cultural settings
There is no general solution for everyone when it comes to public speaking or intercultural business negotiations. Based on the still ongoing experience in international negotiations, and lecturing and researching cultural and economic integration of groups of people, I approach personal trainings with a globally-tested tailored approach. The class is exercise-based and requires intensive participation. It can serve as a prep course for a new expatriation/job-posting experience or simply as confidence-builder for upcoming rounds of international business negotiations. You'll be introduced to the general approach to and the principles of public speaking, but we will focus on your character and objectives. First we talk about your experience and worries, and then we will adjust the process to your needs.

Antoinette
Master Public Speaking Using Compelling Language Techniques
This class is for those wanting to craft and develop communication skills for public speaking and presentations. I specialise in creating speeches using compelling and masterful language designed to influence a small or large audience. The techniques used will enhance your level of calm, confidence, and charisma as you conduct public presentations. Regardless if your native tongue is in English, French, Dutch or etcetera the communication skills you will learn from this class will be life changing. Some of the communication techniques used will teach you how to influence others at the unconscious level and will give you a high degree of composure and command over the individuals, groups and audiences. Assisting those preparing presentations in English is my specialty.

Russian Language, Grammar, Speaking, Writing - from Basic to Advanced
Russian is a very beautiful but truly challenging language. Whatever are your purposes for learning this language, help from a native Russian speaker will certainly accelerate this process. Russian isn't my mother tongue but I use this language from the age of 6 on a daily basis so I am almost a native speaker. I've been living in Moscow, Russia for the past 3 years. Currently, I'm in Brussels and ready to help anybody willing to master this language. If you're interested, feel free to contact me.

Learn Italian from a native speaker: grammar, oral and written skills!
Hello, I'm Verdiana and I'm a Master student at KU Leuven. I tutor students and offer private lessons since I was 16, thus I've gained quite some experience on the topic. My main focus is on foreign language because I've studied them for 5 years. Here in Leuven though, I would like to teach Italian, my native language. During a one-hour-class, you'll get the chance to explore the (difficult but fascinating) Italian grammar, to practice both your oral and written skills and to learn some useful Italian phrases. Don't hesitate to contact me in case of any question!

English Language (Speaking, Listening, Reading, Writing)
Communicating properly in English is no longer an option but an expectation in academic and professional life. I am a native English speaker (American) with a Ph.D. and prior teaching experience in both individual and group scenarios, and my goal with this course is to help others improve their speaking, listening, reading, and writing abilities in the English language. Approaching the language with native experience, I can provide guidance related to both educational and business English and can cover broad usage including comprehension, conversation, grammar, and situational skills. I am also able to help improve general language skills (e.g. accent training) and can provide extensive help and instruction regarding SAT, GRE, MCAT, EPSO, IELTS, and TOEFL exams.
