    About Me

    After several years teaching within a classroom environment, the opportunity to tutor outside of formal schooling is exciting for me and I hope also beneficial to learners and their parents.

    Tutoring is a fantastic opportunity for both the teacher and the student.
    The student is able to have a lesson specifically tailored to their ability, interests and rate of progress and therefore finds learning more enjoyable and rewarding.
    The teacher is able to have more moments where learning 'happens' and plans lessons with the individual and their personal learning goals in mind.

    Education

    Post Graduate Certificate of Education : Secondary Teaching
    Bachelor Degree Theology & Religious Studies, University of Cambridge
    A Levels : English, Music, History, Religious Studies (all A* grades)

    Experience / Qualifications

    8 years teaching experience in schools - including primary, secondary and learning support teaching
    Grade 8 Piano
    Grade 8 Clarinet
    Grade 5 Music Theory
    A Level Music
    As a qualified teacher I am able to give lessons which engage children in English. We focus on communication and enjoyment, where children have opportunities to speak, listen and ask questions to develop their understanding. For those who are able we introduce grammar, writing and read a wide range of appropriate English texts. Lessons would be suitable for those who may be educated in English but where it is not spoken at home. Also for those who may consider school or jobs using English in the future. In Belgium many children may speak English at home with one parent but have limited opportunities to practice reading and writing. I can also help with this to ensure children have balanced language skills.
    With qualifications in both piano and clarinet and music A Level, I offer individual and group lessons in music theory, piano, woodwind and singing for children up to age 18 working at beginner or intermediate level. I am a qualified teacher with experience with children in primary and secondary school stages and speaking Dutch to B2 level. I can make lessons engaging, and fun as well as helping children to develop their talents and skills.

    Languages are sometimes scary looking and I have experienced that. With my more modern view of teaching, I will help you improve in these subjects with a method far removed from the traditional school method. I can help the youngest to better understand their lessons and prepare for exams. And I can allow adults to improve and teach them to become autonomous in their learning. My goal is to make learning more fun and enjoyable for everyone. Languages are sometimes scary and I have experienced that.

    Communication Training (Professional / Personal) & Public Speaking
    Whether your goal is personal or professional, speaking is a predominantly physical activity, relying on a body, a voice, a breath, a rhythm (diction) and an emotion (the imagination and the sensations, reflecting the involvement of the speaker in his speech. How to send a clear message? How to make the difference, to make an impression? How to regain self-confidence and control the management of his emotions? Knowing how to speak in public is now a necessity for the company and in the company. From a personal point of view, this is a vector for better relationships and optimal messages. On the phone, in a meeting, in front of a client or a banker (…), your public speaking must be effective and efficient with clear, simple and powerful messages, creating a match between the message received and the message sent. Simple and pragmatic tools will be presented and then put into practice for: generating listening ● making an impression ● fostering trust ● generating need ● motivating teams by explaining a strategy ● getting messages across within groups. Controlled, the method allows: • improve self-confidence and stress management with the development of the speaker's fluency (verbal-bodily), his public speaking and his sense of repartee and improvisation • to work on his ease, leadership, his NLP, his charisma, his creativity and to go towards a certain personal development, through a set of scenarios * improve the characteristics of the spoken voice (timbre, pitch, intention, flow) Completed by basic exercises (diction, voice, presence, breathing, presentation, time management ...), role plays, improvisations and simulations will be set up. With the key words: pronunciation, rhetoric, verbal and non-verbal communication, diction / articulation, the sense of repartee, structured speech (…). The goal is not only to focus on verbal communication but also on nonverbal communication, so as to make the control of his body, his voice (...), a real and lasting strength. Depending on the interaction between the trainer - coach and the one who consults, there is no single way to operate: each type of session depends on the needs and difficulties of each. In all cases, it is very often a question, while adapting to your own needs and after having precisely diagnosed your desired objective and the blockages encountered, to combine the theory (the bases of the studied concept, for example NLP / information asymmetry / the "how to say no" / the tools of non-verbal communication or the application of kinaesthesia) and its application (through exercises and direct applications). For example, are discussed: - the fundamentals of public speaking: breathing, gaze and body language - diction and elocution: rhythm and range of your voice - management of your emotions and your emotional overflow (example: stress) - work on the body, to amplify your charisma and ensure consistency between your message and your body ... with the aim of: * Enhance your presentation and arouse interest by focusing on your strengths, your qualities ... your personality * Match the content and form of your message * Improve your charisma, your self-confidence and the benefits of your emotional intelligence Postgraduate School Training & Ivy league college in the United States, specialized and worked for over 13 years, in Europe and North America, in the field of communication and public speaking in renowned public and private international institutions, involved in forums and conferences, and focused on two areas: training and coaching, with the key words pedagogy and careful methodology. PLACES - Locations: Geneva - Lausanne - Friborg - Neuchâtel - Montreux - Basel - Sion - Sierre - Morges - Bienne. But currently and until further notice, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid. These sessions also seem to be perfectly unanimous since they have the advantages of live (example: quality of the interaction), without its disadvantages (example: loss of travel time) with additional advantages (example: notes that can be re-read on the chat). In this context, the videoconference sessions for which you asked me to seem to suit everyone perfectly, take place very optimally and generate a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). That is why, at your request, I continue to offer this option. Take good care of yourself and yours! PROGRAM A la carte program: evaluated and adapted to each need.

    Abdessamad
    Darija(Moroccan Arabic), Arabic(MSA), Tamazight(Berber) and English for foreigners.
    Hello everyone! My name is Abdessamad. I’m 25 years old and I come from Morocco. I was born in a trilingual family that can speak fluently Arabic (MSA), Tamazight (Berber) and Darija (Moroccan Arabic). I have a diploma in Entertainment and currently I’m studying sociolinguistics at the university of Ibn Zohr, in Agadir. Extremely patient and suitable for beginners, children and adults. I love teaching, as well as learning of course languages (currently, French and German) but not only. I like to talk about philosophy, literature, psychology sports, cooking and gastronomy, animals, outdoors activities and travels. I am a professional teacher but I was giving after school language courses to students of all grades from primary school to high school, at their place in Agadir and other cities around as a freelancer. I also have a great experience in teaching non-native speakers since my wife is French and I taught her Arabic from scratch. Besides that, I have lots of students from different spots of the world, some of them that I can call now friends. During the summer break, I’ve used to do entertainments in the hotels, therefore I had the chance to meet lots of people coming from different countries. So as an entertainer and a sociolinguist student who’s interested in learning other languages and about deferent cultures, I was proposing to give the tourists Arabic, Darija, and Tamazight lessons. I like trying new things with each student to see what works best for them. Engaging them in topics that they like to talk about, recommending movies, series, songs, book or anything that would make them more connected to the culture. With that being said, we all know that learning is fun. Or at least, it shouldn’t be so hard to learn and have fun. So, as an entertainer and a sociolinguistics student, I assure you that the experience is going to be fun, you will stay curious and keep coming back for more.

Have you just started learning English and you need someone to help you with this journey? Do you already have a good level you just need someone to practice with? Would you like help with an interview or presentation in English? I can help you learn a language from scratch or help you practice so you can use the language at work or in a personal setting. In our first lesson we will have a casual talk, ideally in English so that I understand your level, and we will discuss your needs and objectives in order to set the goals of our course. As a Communications professional, I have spent the past six years studying and working primarily in English.
