    English speaking and creative writing. Playwrighting!

    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. Additionally I lead a creative writing course at Oxford and Reading College. I have tutored many students in building confidence in speaking and writing. I have also found myself specialising in enabling children with learning difficulties gain confidence and find creative solutions to help the learning process. I am currently working on new writing commissions and basing myself in Brussels tutoring and leading creative writing workshops is something I enjoy doing alongside my projects. Theatre's I have worked with include Pegasus Oxford, Tricycle/Kiln Theatre, National Theatre Studio, Hampstead Theatre, North Wall Arts Centre.

    English, German tutoring. Learn in a creative way.
    I tutor in English and German. My classes are perfect for beginners who have little to no knowledge, and who would like to raise their language skills to a conversational level, as well as students who struggle keeping up with their school assignments. Every class is tailored to the individual needs and interests of every student, you can decide what you would like to learn, and be in charge of your own pace. Additionally I keep every class interesting and creative depending on the individual interest of the student (For example, we can learn with movies and books you like) Language learning is only fun when it is done without pressure.

    English Tutoring, Proof reading, Conversational skill etc
    Traduction Français en bas! I am a 21 year old British/Italian Student studying computer science. Every summer I decide to teach students (this summer adults too!) a certain subject. It is normally English, but I have also taught programming languages. I have a passion for languages, and want to share that passion with others! I speak English, French and Italian fluently, and I know a little Spanish. Being in Belgium for the Summer, I need a job to support myself, so I decided to do this! I feel the fact that I speak French and Italian allow me to better train the person I am tutoring to learn English faster and more efficiently. I can also travel to whoever requires it! Je suis un jeune étudiant de 21 ans Italo-Britannique qui est actuellement dans ma dernière année d’université. Chaque année pour l’été je fais le tuteur d'Anglais, normalement destinée a des enfants mais cette fois je vais m'ouvrir vers les plus anciens, grace a l'experience que j'ai maintenant. Je suis un passionné des langues: Je parle anglais, italien et français. Cet aspect me donne d'avantage sur les autres tuteur/trice. Essayez-moi!

    Math, Chimie, Physique, Sciences, Apprendre à étudier
    Je suis un ingénieur civil diplômé, mais je préfère me décrire par mes passions: j'écris des livres, j'apprends le piano, je fais du basket et un peu de musculation, je crée des jeux de société. Je suis quelqu'un d'auto-didacte dont le vrai talent est d'arriver à repérer les faiblesses dans tout apprentissage et de mettre en oeuvre les moyens nécessaires pour les surmonter. Je suis capable de comprendre quasiment n'importe quelle matière avec le syllabus, et donc de pouvoir ensuite aider quelqu'un qui comprend moins bien. J'ai donné de nombreux cours en math et sciences durant mes études, ainsi que des cours à des enfants en primaire qui avaient des difficultés.

    Mandarin Chinese and English Tutoring to Expats in Brussels
    I have studied Chinese since the age of 11, and lived for two years in China. There I studied intensive Mandarin Chinese courses at Chinese Universities in Beijing and Wuhan. Therefore, I am well aware of the struggles of learning Chinese. Not only am I now fluent in Chinese (HSK level 5), but I have also learnt how to most effectively learn Mandarin. I will make an individual plan with the student, teach pinyin, pronunciation, tones, characters, phrases, grammar, idioms, everyday language and much more. I will also share my best tips when studying Mandarin. I have extensive experience in teaching English to Chinese children ages 5-17. I was both a private tutor and teacher at local Chinese high schools when living in China. Therefore, I can assist in teaching English to expats living in Brussels
