Speaking and Writing Practice in English with a native speaker/young professional

Are you looking for structured opportunities to speak English in a relaxed way?

Maybe you would like help with honing your writing skills to ace your next exam, job application, and important email.

My class is an opportunity to work on your English language skills in all four areas: writing, listening, speaking and reading. My approach is based on experiences teaching English in a variety of contexts: French schools, private tuition, and migrant integration networks. At the base of my teaching is my experience as a language learner.

I, myself, have been a language learner for a long time and I know how it feels to be stuck in class without having real opportunities to have long and fruitful conversations in the target language. I also know that writing in the target language takes time and practice.

Join me for a first conversation on anything and everything.

After all, practice makes perfect.

Extra information

Be willing to speak no matter how many mistakes or linguistic inaccuracies you may make.

Lucie
English, French and Dutch academic reinforcement courses + CEB and CE1D preparation
If your child is having difficulties in school, I would love to be able to help them overcome them. I had the opportunity to work in several non-profit organizations (Schola ULB, Youth Club, CIFA, ABEF) where I helped young adolescents to understand their subject in French, English and Dutch. I also helped them prepare for their exams, including the CEB and CE1D. We will work together on their lessons, we will review the vocabulary and grammar they need to know and we will work on their difficulties in order to overcome them. In view of the current situation, I teach only online.

Anglais pour les débutants, en ligne , acquérez des connaissances de base en anglais et devenez un apprenant autonome
Un élément-clé pour progresser rapidement dans une nouvelle langue est de développer son vocabulaire. Oubliez la grammaire pour un moment . Vous aurez beau maîtriser la grammaire d’une langue : si votre vocabulaire est limité, vous ne pourrez simplement pas vous exprimer. Mieux vaut s’exprimer en faisant quelques fautes de grammaire que ne pas pouvoir s’exprimer du tout ! Il ne suffit cependant pas d’apprendre des mots de manière aléatoire. Il existe différents types de listes de vocabulaire : Mais bien sûr sans la grammaire complément sera une erreur dans l'apprentissage , donc il faut les apprendre paralelement , c'est pourqoui vous aurez besoin d'un prof qui sait combiner les deux d'une manière efficace

Tutoring all school level Math&Physics, SAT/IB/A levels Math&physics.
I'm a Math&Physics tutor for school students of all ages, Mostly help graduate students in SAT, IB, A levels 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 enough, then I will do all I can to help you find that motivation that you need for success. 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 ;))
