About Me

Hello! :) I am a British national originally from the South of England studying a master in linguistics in Brussels and living in Gent. I’m passionate about learning languages- I’m fluent in French (I studied in Paris for three years), just passed my first level of Dutch with Het Perspectief and I’m slowly learning Romanian and Italian. I’d love to share my passion for languages with you and help you learn more about my native language and culture! I speak RP English and lived in the UK for the first 18 years of my life, so I have plenty of cultural and linguistic knowledge to impart ;) I aim to make learning English fun for students of all ages, backgrounds and levels.

Education

I have a BA with honours in French Studies from the University of London Institute in Paris and am currently studying a one year Master of Arts in Linguistics at the VUB.

Experience / Qualifications

I tutored French teenagers (aged 15-17) in Paris outside of my studies and played with and looked after a French baby boy in English several times a week (4-8 hours each working day) over a period of 6 months to help him acquire the language.

Reviews (1)

Holly is a very good teacher. I started taking English classes with her a few months ago because I want to improve my pronunciation, reading and practicing the conversation. She prepares each class with articles to read and exercises according to the vocabulary necessary for my work. She corrects me in every mistake and I feel that little by little I am improving. Thanks Holly

Private English Language Teaching Class to improve your skills in Reading, Listening, Speaking and Writing.
With my 6 years of language schools and private tutoring experience, I'm certain that this class would be a great deal of help to you. In this class we will be covering all the skills (Reading, Listening, Speaking Writing, Vocabulary) intensively. I have a wide range of English materials and you will be provided power point presentations, flash books, listening activities etc. during our teaching sessions. Additionally, what I do for my students is, I prepare materials for individuals according to their needs in English, and what I actually want from students is to practice what they have learnt via real-time situations. Don't forget, learning English is only possible if you cooperate with your tutor.

Learn English for all levels of experience from 'Hello' to 'Goodbye' and everything in-between
Hello, my name is Jack, a native English speaker originally from Manchester, England. I have experience teaching English as a second language both online to students in China.And in schools in Italy. I have a diploma in International Business Management from Northumbria University, and studied abroad in Sweden and Portugal and therefore know how important and daunting learning a language can be. I specialise in teaching English as a second language. My aim is to be the lessons fun and engaging. Depending on what you want to learn we can focus on grammar, sentence structure, building vocabulary of a particular topic or start at the basics learning phonics. If you would like support and tutoring on homework or topics you are studying in school I can support students with this and help them achieve in school. I can also teach Business English and help you prepare for a presentation or interview or help with your studies. My class would be perfect for either adults or children wanting to improve their oral and written English skills. Each class will be personalised to your needs and abilities with the first class used to evaluate your level and how we can best use further classes to improve your abilities and see results.

***** Availability update made on 09/01/2020. Valid until further notice ***** I offer you my services in order to make you truly effective orally / in writing in English. If you have to use English in the course of your professional activity and you don't get comfortable with it ... If you are tired of being spotted immediately as French ... If you don't know still not when to use the present perfect / preterite .... I'm here to help you and make you progress. * Linguist by training and author of school textbook in this capacity. Note that I am not this young student who had a good mark in the Baccalaureate or this other who is supposedly bilingual. I have been teaching as a teacher in the National Education since 1995 and I can tell you that teaching cannot be improvised. It is not an activity that we do "like that". I offer you my expertise and my experience. By the way, to have 10/20 in the Baccalaureate, it is enough to have the A2 level (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd year) so I let you imagine the desperation of future engineers who must obtain at least 750 in the TOEIC! (the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course is prepared according to your needs. Feedback is always given. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, connections ... Oral grammar. * Adaptation to all levels: from college to post-baccalaureate through high school. => Post-bac: preparation for TOEIC, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First-Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Orals and writings from grandes écoles such as ENA => Orals and writings from business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...) Please do not hesitate to contact me for further details.
