English - learn by doing (from perfecting the language to teaching the basics to upgrading)
In the case of tutoring, I base my lessons on the subject seen by the student by explaining to him in another way with many examples and by making him practice as much as possible. In case of learning the basics, I have set up my own totally interactive method so that the student can practice and during which I speak almost only in English to be close to immersion during the lessons. Do not hesitate to contact me for: - learn the basics - prepare for a test - have support for your lessons - practice the language - ... Whatever your needs, I take a practical and fun approach to English because, in my opinion, it is the best way to learn.

Nadja
English, spoken and grammar, test prep, Croatian/Serbian spoken and grammar
As a child of diplomates, my entire life has been colored with a variety of languages, places, cultures. In the process, having learned the importance of languages, I have made it my mission to help those who want to learn, regardless of their age. My goal is to help everyone who is eager to learn! This includes guidance and mentorship in all areas, including spoken English and Croatian/Serbian/Montenegrin as well as grammar. I believe that my teaching methods are very easy to grasp, not overwhelming, and most importantly, efficient!

Raluca
French private lessons, therapy for children with special writing difficulties
My name is Raluca and I offer French lessons to elementary school students who would have trouble finding a work method that suits them. Everyone learns in their own way. This is why I do not have a rigid method but adapt on the contrary to the specificities of each student. I also give lessons to students who have specific learning problems (dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyslexia).

Julia
Tailor made English lessons by certified TEFL teacher
My name is Julia and I am a qualified TEFL teacher (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) with a Master's degree in English linguistics. I offer English courses for all levels. My background in linguistics provides me with a thorough knowledge of English grammar and I therefore have an understanding of the problems students face when learning English. Having lived and worked in the United States, I know what it is like to be immersed in an English speaking environment, therefore can help my students improve their fluency as well as develop the perfect accent! I can also give tailor made classes to working professionals, PhD students, who would like to focus on their academic English (EAP=English for Academic Purposes), essay writing and presentations skills. After the very first meeting, I try my best to adopt the lessons to the needs and goals of my students. I don’t believe anyone can be a ‘bad language learner’, rather that different techniques might work for each of us. My goal is to help students discover what works for them. For those who are afraid of grammar and get confused easily, I'll give some easy tools so you can improve effortlessly. If being shy stops you from speaking, do not worry, as by the end of our lessons you will gain the confidence needed. Generally, I only use English during classes, but for lower levels I can provide explanations also in Hungarian, in German or in French.

Online English Reading sessions for children with a Native English Speaker
I provide online reading sessions to children who are learning to read in English and/or who would like to practise their reading skills with a native English speaker. I have extensive experience teaching English to young learners, in particular, in teaching children to read using the Jolly Phonics programme. Each reading session lasts approximately 30 to 40 minutes and includes written feedback of the session, and access to online materials e.g. pdf levelled books, worksheets or links to useful resources.

David
Private English lessons - A1 to C1 - IELTS / TOEFL training - Bachelor / Master thesis write-up and translation
I started tutoring English since 2020. Being an apprentice in 5 languages - English, French, Spanish, German, and Dutch - my teaching style is based on my experience on the other side of the classroom : Which teaching method suited me the most? What did I like to learn? What could have been better? For the lessons I use my own material (grammar sheets, vocabulary lists, exercise) but I can adapt if you prefer to follow specific textbooks. That said, the courses are based on immersive learning and a lot of oral communication, exclusively in English. After having assessed your level, the lessons will be divided into 3 main themes: vocabulary & writing, oral comprehension and finally oral expression. I can also help you translate any document or essay written in French, Portuguese or Spanish.

Theodora
GREEK & TURKISH & ENGLISH LESSONS FROM A NATIVE TEACHER
I am a 26 year old teacher currently living in Brussels, Belgium. I was born in Istanbul, in a Greek and Armenian family. Turkish and Greek are my native languages. I studied English language teaching & Journalism at Marmara university. Currently, I am a senior in Greek language and literature. To me, being a learner is a full-time profession! I have received my DELTA (Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) by Cambridge University. I believe learning a language should be based on communication. That's why, I always try to make my students talk more while I guide them. I use role-plays and communicative tasks a lot.

Learn English while having fun through games and activities + School support
Hello, I am starting as a private English teacher because I recently had the experience of giving lessons to a 7 year old child for 6 months where I created all kinds of games and activities that I dream of reusing. He was very happy about it and so were his parents. It also greatly blossomed for me as a teacher and my deepening of the language. I took English lessons for a month in Glasgow and developed my oral skills for 4 months in Vancouver thereafter. While staying in Brussels, I continued my advanced learning at EPFC and having knowledge with whom I speak exclusively in English, I practice daily. For the sake of precision, and confidence with the student, I prefer to teach children, adolescents and in tutoring. I am an internship facilitator, so I am used to taking care of children of all ages and in contact with them. Do not hesitate to contact me, I remain at your disposal for any questions or for a course. Tatiana

Samantha
English Tutor for Students, Adults and Professionals
English is one of the most popular languages in the world. In the modern age of globalism, it has been regarded as the most used language in terms of communication, let that be via emails, telephone calls, or letters. My goal with this class is to make you comfortable in all forms of communication with this language, so you can communicate with colleagues, friends, or potential new friends in a social setting. The main objective of this class is to completely remove the language barrier psychologically, so you can also think in English rather than just writing, listening, and expressing it. I look forward to helping new students and contribute to their aspiration to learn a Language.

Private English lessons, adult and secondary levels
Qualified translator for English and German, I offer private English lessons for all levels. The course adapts according to your basic level, your needs and your objectives. I like to work with current topics and / or that appeal to students in order to have a lively and interesting material. This is why I take the "individual" very much to heart. The first course is not paying because it is used for the first contact, to identify the needs of the student and his objectives and to see if the current flows well between us.

Hannah
English tutor to help kids learn and improve English in a fun way
I am a Marketing student who can tutor children that are in school to help improve their English in a fun way. I was raised in Hong Kong and Singapore and English has become a language I speak, read and write better than my mother tongue. My goal is to help kids improve their English in a fun way to keep them interested. Sometimes doing daily activities in English can help a lot more than just learning from a book. I can also help with homework for other courses if necessary.
