Had a great time ! Learned a lot. Thank you Justin !
A happy experience with him, which helps me gain great confidence in expressing my ideas. I expect to meet him again :)
Justin agreed to tutor my son although he said he has little experience of tutoring children/young teens. He was excellent! His calm and kind conversation style worked very well, and he really helped my son to start using his English and take part in conversation. Highly recommended!
Justin was very professional. He gave me good tips to improve my CV and worked very efficiently. I would very much recommend him!
I was very satisfied with Justin work precise and fast.

Private French classes for all levels and all ages
Dear All, Whether you are new to learning the French language, whether you wish to enrich your knowledge or whether you are aiming for its oral, written and literary mastery, I will be happy to share my passion for the French language with you. I offer private lessons adapted to your current level and your ambitions, in a pleasant and friendly atmosphere. We will cover these four key chapters together through a continuous, methodical and participatory learning process: - Grammar; - Vocabulary; - Punctuation; and - Oral pronunciation. It should be noted that the course dedicated to beginners includes a detailed and complete introduction of one hour preparing for the development of the four chapters mentioned above. In a more personalized approach and at your request, we can also address and deepen more specific topics, such as: - the syntax ; - the analysis of text(s); - literary genres; - the history of the language and its roots (Greco-Latin); - the linguistic and communicational specificities within the Francophonie; - reading a book of your choice or my recommendation (from "The Little Prince" by Saint-Exupéry to "Un Amour de Swann" by Marcel Proust). The private lessons that I offer you can, of course, be part of the continuity or the reinforcement of academic courses that you would already follow at school, at the University or elsewhere. As such, your personal media will be welcome (books, notebooks, sheets, etc.). Hoping to be able to contribute to your learning, I remain at your disposal for any further information and wish you much success in your efforts. Yours sincerely, Stephane

Clases virtuales conversacionales en inglés para jóvenes y adultos
Hola, Mi nombre es Santiago y estoy ofreciendo clases virtuales de inglés individuales y personalizadas para mejorar tanto su comunicación oral como escrita. El enfoque principal de mis clases se centra en desarrollar una comunicación del idioma inglés de manera fluida y estructurada ya sea para preparar exámenes internacionales, incluyendo el TOEFL y el FCE, o como para poder comunicarse adecuadamente en el ámbito profesional, o para reforzar y mantener el conocimiento previo de este idioma. Soy Licenciado, graduado en Florida Gulf Coast University en los E.E. U.U. Habiendo aprendido inglés desde chico en el Ivy Thomas Memorial School y vivido año y medio en Tailandia, seguido de 4 años en E.E. U.U. adquirí gran conocimiento y fluidez del idioma inglés. En Tailandia estuve año y medio estudiando arte en la comunicación y esto me ayudó a prepararme para mis estudios en E.E. U.U. Tuve varias clases de comunicación, aprendiendo técnicas de cómo hablar mejor usando no solo nuestras palabras, sino también nuestro cuerpo para ayudarnos a hablar de manera más natural, tranquila y sin ponernos nerviosos si nos trabamos o nos olvidamos de lo que queríamos decir. Durante mi carrera en los E.E. U.U. estuve constantemente escribiendo ensayos para mis clases, además de tener que exponer proyectos delante de mis profesores y compañeros de clase. Al mismo tiempo, estuve trabajando en la universidad y luego de graduado trabajé durante un año, principalmente teniendo largas conversaciones por teléfono con personas de todo el país. Hoy en día la habilidad para comunicarse en inglés es imprescindible y los voy a preparar para que puedan cumplir sus objetivos. Podrá ser, el de estudiar en el extranjero, irse a vivir a un país de habla inglesa, mejorar la comunicación en el ámbito profesional o practicar para no perder el nivel previamente adquirido. Si lo que estás buscando es mejorar tus conocimientos del idioma inglés, yo te voy a ayudar. Mi metodología es simple. Cada persona es diferente y adapto el contenido de mis clases a las necesidades e intereses de mis alumnos. Todos aprendemos de distintas maneras y en tiempos distintos, por eso es que diseño mis clases de manera individual.

Learn Spanish or English in a fun and effective way.
English and Spanish are two of the main languages in the world. Learning to write and speak them well is essential for the future business and for good communication. It is important to know all aspects: writing, reading, grammar, listening and speaking. Being Spanish, Spanish is my strong point but I have been living several times in Canada, Ireland and England learning a lot of English until I have an advanced level. I have given private lessons numerous times and always with success!

SPANISH Lessons for everyone's "pace" and "goal"! You are welcome for young and old!
In my classes you learn Spanish at your own pace and with flexible hours. At school you learn Spanish and when you speak to the people themselves it is completely different. Spanish is my mother language so I can teach you correct Spanish and also prepare you to communicate with Spanish speaking people. My goal is that you feel comfortable and speak the language confidently. I also offer classes for children in Spanish. Sometimes it can be difficult to keep up with a second language and I definitely want to help them with that. I also speak perfect Dutch and English so if you wish to speak 1 of these languages ​​I can teach you that to.

Creative/Experimental Writing in English (Fiction or Poetry).
These classes are meant and designed to explore the burgeoning potentials of not just imagination, but also literary flair. The strengths will be stretched to their fullest reach, while the weakness will be worked upon together via different trials and errors. The classes will be tailored according to the needs of the individual, and according to their comfort and concerns. Editing procedures will also be thorough and perfected to produce a completed piece in the end. My tendency is to take up the experimental, self-cognizance, almost self-improvement/exploration methods. I have previously worked with various television production houses as a creative writer, with art galleries as an art critique, and often as an occult culture archivist. I have been published both- for my prose and poetry.

Learn, Study and Have Fun with English for Beginners
A beginner English student is focused on learning essential vocabulary, such as family names, household objects, basic adjectives, and place names. Beginners are also becoming familiar with subject pronouns, frequently used verbs, and modal expressions. In other words, I'll highlight the Eight Part of Speech in English. They may study some grammar and syntax, but these lessons will mostly focus on basic concepts, such as asking questions, reading or constructing simple sentences.
