I provide Immersion Courses, American English adaptation/translation services, career-building tools and documents and have a niche for pronunciation correction and TOEIC Preparation.

This is also a communicative English class for developing speech. Here we will explore, vocabulary with nuances in meanings, synonyms, idioms, proverbs, some phrasal verb and prepositional verbs and all-around social English.

Very good
Very helpful session with Jay. Looking for the next one !
I recommend Jay, with whom my daughter began to take lessons. She has made a lot of progress in a very short time. For her these lessons are a real pleasure and not a chore. She wants to continue throughout the year. Bravo and thank you so much Jay !
Very good teacher, I’m so satisfied.
Excellent teacher
Mainly for adult and professional learners, this a one-time 60-minute face-to-face session dedicated to identifying your needs as a first-time learner of English. It includes an English Assessment exam to help determine your level and assist in diagnosing your current weaknesses with grammar/speaking. What better way to understand your linguistics needs than through the ears of a Native English speaker and trainer?! Find out your weaknesses and strengths so that you can build a plan for yourself. If you are an INDIVIDUAL for private courses, we may meet at a café or bakery. If you are a BUSINESS PROFESSIONAL or GROUP for Career English courses, we may meet at: -your office within central city limits.
This is a communicative English class for developing speech. Here we will explore, vocabulary with nuances in meanings, synonyms, idioms, proverbs, some phrasal verb and prepositional verbs and all-around social English. The possibilities are endless for focusing on Public Speaking, Intonation and Voice Projection as well. This may be stimulated by interesting audios, short readers or videos. If there are topics you have in mind, we can additionally explore and incorporate this into your lessons. If you need to start speaking English, this class is for you! KEEP IN MIND that your grammar must meet a 7-page assessment requirement which will be administered during the first session; otherwise, you will have to book the class titled "English Development with Native Speaker (Pronunciation, ESL, Business, TOIEC/TOEFL/IELTS Prep)".
In this class we may choose from the following towards literacy exploration and development: -current news articles -reports -biographies -reviews/critic reviews -books/ magazines -or literature of your choice We can also develop: -curriculum vitaes (resumes) -cover letters (presentation letters), -formal letter writing, -creative writing, -in-kind donation letters, -and related documents! (This includes punctuation, salutation and apostrophe usage in writing.) My goal is to keep students challenged, but not overwhelmed. I assign homework after every lesson with limitless opportunities to examine various styles of writing which may be practical for a wide array of needs.
Learn different recording techniques & tips towards quality voice and audio recordings, and develop in-studio efficiency in a relaxed and fun environment. We can instruct you on how to dub and layer vocals, ad-lib and produce quality sound that is specific to voice type and vocal register. Additionally, this class can teach you how to quickly develop a fluid communicatory dynamic with new sound engineers or visa versa, encourage productive and precise communication from sound engineer to recording artist. Other insights could include consultation for Future Sound Engineers and Recording Artists such as: where to make their sounds fuller, rounder, where to take breaths and/or change rhythms or shorten syllables where needed; how to take different creative songwriting or beat-building approaches to music. This course is only given in English. This is for individuals that are striving towards voice quality and enhanced composition in the English language. This is not a voice class nor a language class. It is a tutorial class for individuals who already have talents or aspirations and professionals seeking or in-training!

Native English lessons / English lessons NATIVE SPEAKER all levels (Charleroi / Brussels)
I study English language and English literature in England at university and will soon graduate as a teacher in England. Learning English or improving it with a teacher from England is ideal; I also completed my high schools in England! The price I ask is not very high for effective courses. I have several English textbooks for beginners to confirmed. I can also give courses for literature / English language. My two experiences as a private teacher in England have brought me a lot of knowledge about teaching methods. I learned to be patient and to further encourage my students. Do not hesitate to contact me as long as I am available because I travel a lot. :-) My residence is in Charleroi but I can very well travel to Brussels (to count shipping costs).

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.
