Reviews (1)

Effective and efficient, adapting to my child beginner's needs and putting a smile on it's face from the very beginning.
This class is designed to make the student more confident in their English speaking abilities. This class is designed for those who already have a background in English but want to learn from a native speaker how to have everyday conversations. The class includes both formal speaking and slang components as well as everyday conversation and more formal speaking. I always tailor my classes to the needs of the individual. We could have classes focused on English speaking to prepare you for studying abroad, to prepare you for a job interview in English, or for any reason you could imagine.

Emma
Native English/ Native Spanish teacher. Classes for complete beginners, students, professionals and language enthusiasts. Individual lesson
I have been giving English and Spanish language lessons for the past 5 years. I have taught little one's just starting-off school, high school students, university students and professionals. I adapt each lesson to individual/ group needs. I ensure the class focuses on the objectives the student has set out, whether this be preparing for an exam or delving into a particular subject matter to improve fluency and confidence. I usually suggest that the lesson be an hour and a half long as I believe this is the perfect time frame for ensuring productivity/concentration. Most importantly, I promise to make our lesson a fun learning experience! Emma

Sanhatul (Audri)
Flexible English Tutoring for all age groups following Individual Methodology (also SAT and IELTS)
Hello! My name is Audri and I am a second-year student pursuing a Bachelor of Business Administration degree at KU Leuven. I have followed the British curriculum throughout my school life and English is my first language. I have 4 years of experience as a private tutor and 1 year of experience as a professional English instructor specialising in grammer, reading and writing skills. I worked with IELTS and SAT participants during this time. The aim of my classes is to improve spoken and written English for all age groups. My method of teaching is simple and flexible, we will first discuss and find out what the student needs to work on the most and prioritise that in lessons. In case the student is participating in tests such as IELTS or SAT, we will draw up a lesson plan according to test format. To make things fun for both of us, classes will be as interactive as possible :) Bonus: you get to enjoy learning from someone with a great sense of humour :')

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.

Cours particuliers en Portugais brésilien - Anglais
Je suis déjà diplômé en portugais-anglais, et maintenant je fais un master en communication multilingue. Je crois que la prononciation est très importante pour une bonne communication, alors j'essaie d'aider mes élèves avec ça. J'adore la grammaire et les différences grammaticales entre les langues. Je pense qu’on apprend plus quand on apprend en s’amusant.
