Reviews (1)

Heel boeiende ervaring. Ik heb veel bijgeleerd. Soms verrassende informatie ivm zaken waar ik me niet van bewust was.
DIY skills are very vital especially when you have a certain budget to adhere to after you consult your nearest Home Depot or Brico and find out that quotation cost and estimations are quite expensive! With my assistance you could cut cost and get your home or renovations done in your own unique time, pace, style, budget and taste especially in the era of DIY! I could either assist you or take charge...the ball is in your court!
The aforementioned categories are vital in everyday routine especially for naturally timid and introverted professional aspirant in public speaking, debates, announcements, storytelling, speeches. To reach certain efficiency professionally in terms of intonations, pitch, range, eloquence, fluidity, stress patterns, vocal exercise, flexible volume, uninterrupted flow, suspenseful pause, voice partitioning, etc., even for non-beginners, one needs the right set of assistance...and am excellent at all of the above! Focus is to learn and enhance skills in story-telling smoothness, speech making competences and public speaking proficiency with ease. Beginners and intermediate are welcome...no one should ever relent from learning and acquiring new set of skills or enhancement!

I can give you English classes at all levels, as well as conversational classes, or even just help translating documents into English.

Weiyan
English Creative Writing, Speech and Innovative Presentation Skills
Greetings! I am currently pursuing a Masters course at KU Leuven and would like to extend my services as an English tutor. BUT FIRST! A little about myself. I'm an native English-speaking Chinese Malaysian with four years of international school teaching experience engaging with students between ages 10 and 18. The methods I employ have less to do with sitting down and constantly repeating grammar exercises, and more to do with creative writing games that allow students to embrace and understand mistakes, rather than fear them; I live and love to make things fun! Classes will consist mainly of activities; debates, short discussions, writing games as well as standard language exercises (depending on what you need/want).
