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!

Spanish & English Lessons with Erika in Belgium :)
Teaching is my passion, and as a native speaker, I've had the pleasure of connecting with students worldwide, starting from my experiences in the Czech Republic where I used to teach English to children. We can delve into the intricacies of communication, focusing on what matters to you. I prepare students for tests like DELE and SIELE, tailoring my approach to your unique goals—whether it's acing an exam, exploring the world, or simply diving into language and culture. My lessons take a casual twist—we might stroll around, grab a coffee or tea, and make learning an enjoyable experience. The best part for me is when students express gratitude for our time together. I believe language is more than just words, and I look forward to sharing my perspective with you. Can't wait to meet you and start this language journey together!

Corinne
English: pronunciation (British or American). No grammar lessons. Adults only.
I have facilitated workshops and given classes throughout my career all over the world. English pronunciation is essential these days because English is spoken everywhere and all the time. I followed specialized training such as the verb tonal method, Feldenkrais or mental coaching. We are therefore going to work in a slightly different way by combining articulatory techniques, movement, rhythm, intonation, warming up of the jaw and tongue, stretching of the neck, neck and shoulders to arrive to very fast results.

Maher
English for kids, beginners, adults With a nice learning method
Here we learn together from the vocabulary how to speak fluent English and add some grammar so that this learning journey is not stressful, but very joyful. Give yourself the space and time to learn this global and important language and learn to communicate fluently with English speakers despite its dialect, as we will try to deal with more than one dialect together.

Italians at all levels - children, children and children
Les Italiens sont mon Mother tongue. With great passion, I want to teach the beautiful Italian language according to your needs. Do you need to learn more about your school life... for your private and professional life? Does your child need help doing their homework? It is important to know that the nature of the matter is similar to the nature of the person who consults you. I work in a natural way, and from the first lesson you will be able to speak simple sentences. As a general rule, I teach my lessons in Italian, so that you get effective 'full immersion' from the start (support languages such as Dutch, English or French are used if absolutely necessary). I will teach you how Italian grammar works and how to best conduct a conversation with a native speaker. I teach you the language that is spoken today and Italian through fun and interactive lessons.

Zukisa
english grammar and vocabulary exercises, tenses and articles
I am an electrical engineering graduate from South Africa and have specialized in Computer Operating Systems Engineering. I have been living in Belgium for 6 years now and have noticed how the majority speaks English and making mistakes in English language tenses and grammatical errors, and moreover I think the young and old deserve a chance to learn this world recognized language as it is a world lingua-franca. The lessons are given according to your needs and the level of English you already have. For kids they are also given in a sort of gaming, singing and many more. For university and college students, the lessons are according to their academic needs and more talking as a practice. These lessons can be given to your place or online or in Bouwhandelstraat, 2140 Borgerhout. For any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Elisa
English - learn by doing (from perfecting the language to teaching the basics to upgrading)
In the case of tutoring, I base my lessons on the subject seen by the student by explaining to him in another way with many examples and by making him practice as much as possible. In case of learning the basics, I have set up my own totally interactive method so that the student can practice and during which I speak almost only in English to be close to immersion during the lessons. Do not hesitate to contact me for: - learn the basics - prepare for a test - have support for your lessons - practice the language - ... Whatever your needs, I take a practical and fun approach to English because, in my opinion, it is the best way to learn.

Katherine

I am a British native english speaker working in Brussels, looking to help anyone who wants to improve either their spoken or written english in a professional or social context. My goal is to be flexible and focus on exactly what you want to improve, having some experience in privately tutoring English to French and Dutch children before. I have a B2/C1 level certificate in French so if needed the class can be taught in French.
