English lessons (speaking or writing) with a British Native Speaker

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.

About Me

- I am a British young professional working at a think tank in Brussels looking to make a little extra money from tutoring English in Brussels' international environment.
- I was educated at Oxford University in history and politics as well as a masters degree at the College of Europe in Bruges. I have advanced written and oral skills in English from completing two academic theses.
- But most of all I just enjoy sharing my language and its nuances with others so they can use English to explore the rest of the world more easily.

Education

BA (Honours), History and Politics at Magdalen College, the University of Oxford. MA in EU International Relations and Diplomacy Studies at the College of Europe in Bruges (mention très bien).

Experience / Qualifications

I taught English to a Dutch family over the summer last year (2018) in Brussels and found the experience highly rewarding, particularly as the son's English improved over a few weeks of intensive lessons.

Sheeba
English, French, German and Turkish teacher for all ages :)
I love teaching and use fun, creative methods to make sure my lessons stay interesting for students of all ages. My teaching method varies from student to student. Everyone learns at different speeds and it also depends on whether they know another language from the same language group. That helps me to make references to the language with which they are already familiar. For German, I use the books and levels laid out by the Goethe Institute. Some students learn better with regular exercise sheets done step by step repeatedly, while others learn through more animated techniques. I don’t hesitate to use videos, songs and even crafts to teach a difficult concept. Expertise: Beginner’s Lessons, Conversation Practice, Business Communication Skills, Accent Training, Writing Skills, Reading Skills, Grammar, Vocabulary Languages Spoken: German, English, Hindi, Turkish, Urdu Languages Taught: English, German, Hindi, Turkish, Urdu Exam preparation lessons: Yes – DSH, Goethe, IELTS, TestDaF, TOEFL Children’s lessons: Yes – 6+ Hobbies and interests: Art, Cooking, Creative Writing, Food, Movies, Music, Singing, Travelling
