    Published playwright, with lots of experience teaching and working with young people and adult learners. I have worked as a writing facilitator attached to high profile theatres in London working in primary schools, with young professionals and at colleges.

    English Classes with an experienced teacher from Canada.
    Hi there, My name is Anna and I am from Toronto, Canada. I have been teaching English for more than 6 years. I have taught in many countries around the world like Canada, France, China, Bulgaria,Spain, Chile and Belgium. I am a Celta certified (grade A) ESL teacher. I have experience teaching English to adults, teenagers and children of all levels from beginner to advanced. Whether you need practice with your pronunciation, grammar, increase your vocabulary or are studying to pass an English proficiency exam, I can help you achieve your goals. Having been a student of languages myself I understand the struggles that come with learning a new language. This is why I think it’s very important for English lessons to be interesting, relevant and fun. I want to know what’s important to you and what you want to learn whether it’s conversation practice, accent reduction or grammar, the focus is on you. Before our first class we can discuss your interests, strengths, weaknesses and overall goals and together we can create a suitable learning plan for you. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or requests. I would be really happy to be your teacher, so what are you waiting for …contact me and let’s start learning.

    Cours d'anglais / Professeur diplômé d'un master didactique en langues et lettres modernes (AESS)
    Ayant déjà eu de l'expérience dans l'enseignement en Belgique comme à l'étranger, en cours individuel comme en groupe, je sais m'adapter à différents publics. Je vous propose donc mon aide et donne des cours accessibles à tous. Je suis disponible pour des remises à niveau, pour des cours spécifiques concernant des sujets précis ou pour combler des lacunes. Je peux m'adapter à vos demandes et vous proposer des cours particuliers qui conviendront à l'amélioration de la compétence désirée (vocabulaire, table de conversation, cours théoriques, exercices de compréhension écrite/orale, etc...). J'ai été formé à l'enseignement lors de mes 2 masters didactiques (Langues Modernes et FLE) à l'Université de Liège, mais j'ai su développer et améliorer mes compétences à l'étranger tout en étant très flexible selon les divers publics que j'ai pu avoir. On me décrit comme quelqu'un de calme, patient et pédagogue. J'ai eu l'occasion de travailler avec des britanniques et des américains, je peux m'adapter à des demandes plus spécifiques concernant ces cultures.

    Audri Sanhatul
    Flexible English Tutoring for all age groups following Individual Methodology (also SAT and IELTS)
    Hello! My name is Audri and I am a second-year student pursuing a Bachelor of Business Administration degree at KU Leuven. I have followed the British curriculum throughout my school life and English is my first language. I have 4 years of experience as a private tutor and 1 year of experience as a professional English instructor specialising in grammer, reading and writing skills. I worked with IELTS and SAT participants during this time. The aim of my classes is to improve spoken and written English for all age groups. My method of teaching is simple and flexible, we will first discuss and find out what the student needs to work on the most and prioritise that in lessons. In case the student is participating in tests such as IELTS or SAT, we will draw up a lesson plan according to test format. To make things fun for both of us, classes will be as interactive as possible :) Bonus: you get to enjoy learning from someone with a great sense of humour :')

    Serdane
    Cours d'Anglais pour élèves du secondaire ou adultes
    Je m'appelle Serdane et je propose des cours d'Anglais aux élèves du secondaires et adultes qui auraient du mal à développer une méthode de travail qui leur convient. Extravertie et pétillante...et surtout, beaucoup d'humour! Je pense que l'apprentissage des langues repose avant tout sur le développement d'une méthode d'apprentissage adaptée. Certains apprennent les langues de manière intuitive en se jetant dans le bain de la conversation. D'autres ont au contraire besoin de se voir exposer les concepts grammaticaux de manière rigoureuse avant de se lancer dans la conversation. Il y autant de façons d'apprendre qu'il y a d'élèves... C'est pourquoi j'adapte mes cours aux besoins de chacun, et surtout, je tente d'aider d'élève à découvrir ce qui marche pour lui afin qu'il puisse continuer à progresser de façon indépendante. Quelques mots sur mon parcours: Après des études secondaires à Saint-Boniface, j'ai fait un double bac bilingue (Fr.-Angl.) droit et sciences économiques à l'université Saint-Louis, puis un master en droit à l'UCL (terminé juin 2018) comprenant un Erasmus en Allemand à l'Université de Vienne. Ce parcours varié m'a permis de développer une méthode de travail solide. Mes domaines de compétences: - Renforcement - Rattrapage - Révisions grammaticales - Cours de conversation - Méthode de travail (organisation, planning des révisions, etc.) Mon tarif inclut un soutien scolaire complet (cours privés, la possibilité de poser des questions en dehors des heures de cours, rédaction et correction d'interrogations, etc. ).
