    I have experience working with children and adults at all levels of English.
    I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your English learning goals.

    Cours particuliers d'anglais natif/English lessons NATIVE SPEAKER tous niveaux (Charleroi/Brussels)
    J'étudie la langue anglaise et la littérature anglaise en Angleterre à l'université et serai bientôt graduée comme enseignante en Angleterre. Apprendre l'anglais ou l'améliorer avec une enseignante venant d'Angleterre est l'idéal; j'ai aussi accompli mes secondaires en Angleterre! Le prix que je demande n'est pas très élevé pour des cours efficaces. Je dispose de plusieurs manuels d'anglais pour débutant à confirmé. Je puis aussi donner des cours pour la littérature/ langue anglaise. Mes deux d'expériences en tant que professeur particulier en Angleterre m'ont apporté plusieurs acquis concernant les méthodes d'enseignement. J'ai appris à être patiente et à encourager d'avantage mes étudiants. N'hésitez pas à me contacter tant que je suis disponible car je voyage beaucoup. :-) Ma résidence est à Charleroi mais je peux très bien voyager jusqu'à Bruxelles (compter frais de transport).

    Creative Writing
    I am a writer, translator and PhD in literature and arts. I believe that act of telling and especially doing it in writing is not only one of the essential ways of expressing onself but is also a conscious contribution to one's life&wellbeing. The way I am giving creative writing involves references to narrative theraphy as well, and is called bookperformance. It has several ways to adapt and apply the person who wants to discover the strength of act of reading, telling and writing; beauty and power of words when they are read out, thought, spoken out or written. I guide you in English, French or Turkish. And, the writing process could involve all the other languages that you want to or need to express yourselves.

    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

    Nina
    Langues étrangères : Français-Néerlandais-Anglais-Espagnol
    Les cours de langues étrangères à l'école sont parfois difficile à assimiler pour les élèves : pas de contexte, pas d'intérêt, peu d'envie à retenir une longue liste de vocabulaire ou de TP par cœur. Depuis toujours j'enseigne avec une différente méthode, dite "cool mais efficace" ; apprendre une langue doit aussi être fun, et cela change avec chaque personnalité! J'apprend à l'élève comment transformer ses longues heures d'études (et cela arrive surtout avec le néerlandais :p) en quelque chose de plus intéressant pour lui, plus divertissant. En général je commence le cours par les devoirs et préparations scolaires à réaliser, et je termine par une partie méthodologie/révisions. :) J'aime en général travailler avec les élèves, chacun a une nature différente et du coup une façon différente avec laquelle travailler, ce qui pour moi est la beauté de l'enseignement :)
