    Conversation and Reading in English - an Organic and Customized Approach

    The class will adapt specifically to the student based on the his/her mother tongue. I like to make relations with the student's natural response in his/her mother tongue and start from there on how to translate and transform that into the goal language. In this regard French, Spanish, and Hindi/Urdu speakers will be most benefited. My approach will mainly be reading and conversation - the two most important tools, as well as tests in our daily life. My propositions and ways to proceed will be organic and customized case by case.

    About Me

    Hello! My name is Alina. I"m currently based in Brussels independently training myself as a dancer. Officially I study in Business Administration at KU Leuven and I'm in my last year. My daily practices include movement with a focus on dance, swimming, biking, reading, and drawing. These days I also try to play a little bit of music before going to bed. These are some of my favorite practices for the spirit. I learnt French a year and a half ago and also Spanish, but the latter could use a lot more practice.

    Education

    Bachelor of Business Administration - KU Leuven Campus Brussels (currently in my last year).
    High School diploma - Indian School Muscat, Muscat, Oman (completed in 2015)

    Experience / Qualifications

    I have experience as a yoga teacher and a French & English teacher. I am very adaptable to the different needs of different students and different mother tongues.
    Language learning is a highly subjective terrain and I believe there is a perfect way for each person to learn a new language in function of several factors such as their mother tongue, lifestyle, hobbies, etc. Following this ideology I aim to provide customized classes based on the student's individual profile and inclinations, for example, we read if you like to read, we talk if that's your comfort zone, I can assign movies as homework for film buffs, and so on.
    Yoga is an often misunderstood and misapplied practice. Its universe is vast and I do not claim to comprehend it fully. Personally it is a practice for me to calm myself down and reward my body when agonised. The class will be structured around the student. Flexibility and strength are not requirements but benefits of a regular, dedicated, and committed practice. Depending on the student and the day the class may focus on holding poses, or sequencing them. This class will be useful to both myself and the student to learn more about our anatomy, as well as our nature. Yoga has been a part of my life since its beginning. I was born in India and studied in an Indian school where it was a regular practice for students. I look forward to a strong personal connection with my student where we take it easy or go crazy as the day calls. I like to explain things to people in a language they and their body understand. Yoga is not something that can be scheduled for 2 hours and forgotten about for the rest of the 22 hours. Eventually I foresee long term changes in the student's lifestyle. For example, what you eat during the day will affect greatly your practice in the night. All in all, my class will take an organic and personal system.

    I study English language and English literature in England at university and will soon graduate as a teacher in England. Learning English or improving it with a teacher from England is ideal; I also completed my high schools in England! The price I ask is not very high for effective courses. I have several English textbooks for beginners to confirmed. I can also give courses for literature / English language. My two experiences as a private teacher in England have brought me a lot of knowledge about teaching methods. I learned to be patient and to further encourage my students. Do not hesitate to contact me as long as I am available because I travel a lot. :-) My residence is in Charleroi but I can very well travel to Brussels (to count shipping costs).

    Daviti
    Tutoring all school level Math&Physics, SAT/IB Math&physics.
    I'm a Math&Physics tutor for school students of all ages. Mostly help to graduate students in SAT or IB Math&physics. My classes consist of only one student because every student needs a different approach. I believe that the best way to teach someone sth is to understand how his/her mind works and after that find the most effective and convenient method for the individual. Teaching is one of my hobbies and I do this to help students by sharing my knowledge and skills, so if you think you are motivated enough to do your best then I will be more than happy to teach you! And if you aren't motivated then I will do all I can to help you find that motivation I'm talking about :)) Currently, I'm doing online classes with a virtual board, which makes classes the most efficient. If you have any questions feel free to text me, will reply to you as soon as possible ;))
