    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.

    I specialise in tutoring English for European Union professional exams (e.g., AST - AD promotion exams and 'retour' interpretation exams), for other exams (SAT, GMAT, GRE, FCE, CAE, CPE, IELTS.

All courses are individually tailored to the student's needs and students are invited to supply their own materials from work. Courses usually focus on passing an exam or on achieving a sense being able to work comfortably in English with native or non-native English speakers.

    Creative French course adapted to your needs and goals
    I give my classes based on each student's need. Whether you want to focus on written professional french or simply conversation, I will adapt to what fits you most. My master's degree in visual arts will allow you to learn in a creative way, adapated to your needs and goals. I have spent more than 8 years of my life in foreign countries therefore know the difficulties of learning a new language. I speak fluent english which can be useful for beginners :)

    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

    Martha
    International Business Culture, Spanish, Mexican History, Japanese
    I have 19 years as a professor at Mexican university and right now I'm living in Brussels. I have a PhD. in education and for me it's essential to have dynamic classes that approach with the real life and communicative cases in order to improve the level of the language; the learning process is essential to do in different ways in order to find out which type of learner is the student. I'm very passionate and disciplinate about my teaching, trying also to use the TIC's as tool to support the knowledge received. I try always to be updated as a professor with new technologies, new materials and new techniques in order to give and provide the best class as possible.
