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

German private lessons for beginners and intermediates.
Are you looking for a German teacher? I am not only an experienced language tutor but most of all, big languages lover. When teaching, I try to use creative and interesting methods to understand the language. If only you wish to have language classes in a nice atmosphere with a strong focus on effective learning, my methods could help you to learn grammar and vocabulary faster and encourage you to speak.

Practice in the spoken language, assigned topics for class discussions, and oral reports. A lot of funny ;)

Grace
Private lessons - Learn English written, oral and read
As French is not my mother tongue, I had to learn this language myself both in writing and in writing in a short time, in order to pass the 5th year of high school. In my personal experience, I know what it takes to start a person in learning a language and I assure that the person learns precisely. My classes are taught at the base in English, but for students who do not understand me, I speak English and then translate the sentences into French, at worst I speak French. I know from experience that a student or a student who speaks a second language and / or knows how to write in that language without mastering grammar, has a knowledge, neither clear nor precise language, which results in slowing down his learning. For this reason, I start my classes with a grammar exercise, and I leave it to my student, at the end of each class, one or two grammar exercises related to the grammar exercise done during the class. As for the background of my classes, I and my students do listening, reading, speaking and writing exercises based on themes that can be seen in school. Since I also learned a second language, I try to advise my students about my experiences so that they can take over and become independent.

Private tuition in primary and / or homework help
I am a teacher in an English school in Brussels. I can help children in difficulty for all levels of primary school (problems related to a subject, help with homework, etc.) I am fluent in English so I can help an English-speaking student who is enrolled in French in primary education, or who is in English immersion in primary school. I meet many students of foreign origin who do not speak the language that is taught to them. I have my license but no car, so I move if the place is accessible via public transport.
