Language courses in Spanish, English and Catalan for all ages

Hola!
My name is Laia and I am a student from Spain studying a MA in political science in Brussels. Therefore, my mother tongue is Spanish and Catalan. Moreover, I've had the opportunity to live and study abroad in countries like the United States, Germany and France and I have achieved the C2 level in english (Cambridge title), and the basic levels in French and German. I really like teaching languages since I believe learning idioms is a really useful skill and I can totally adapt to every type of class that the student desires (it can be online or at home, I could focus more on Speaking or the desired area, and I could also teach more than one student at a time).
I have taught english to kids before and I really enjoy the experience of seeing people develop an interest for the Spanish/Catalan culture.

Extra information

I am really flexible with the classes and can adapt to the method of teaching that you feel more comfortable with. I could prepare paper activities or laptop activities, always trying to make learning a language the most enjoyable as possible! Don't doubt to contact me if you have any questions!

About Me

I am a 21 year old student that easily adapts to every kind of environment. I am really responsible and have a lot of patience. Also, I am really talkative so do not worry, even if you are a bit shy there would not be any awkward silences and there would always be a subject to talk about to practice the speaking part!
I love helping people, specifically helping them to learn new skills that could be useful for their future.
Furthermore, I am really family oriented and outgoing.

Education

Exchange year in the United States (Senior Year) - Northridge High School [ 02/08/2017 – 07/06/2018 ]

Experience / Qualifications

I have never had the chance to work due to my studies and the lack of time. But this has taught me to be really hard working and generated a strong aim to pursue my degree. Now that my schedule is more flexible I would love to earn some money doing a thing that I love which is to teach a language. On the other hand, I have taught english to kids before on my free time during summer.

English - learn by doing (from perfecting the language to teaching the basics to upgrading)
In the case of tutoring, I base my lessons on the subject seen by the student by explaining to him in another way with many examples and by making him practice as much as possible. In case of learning the basics, I have set up my own totally interactive method so that the student can practice and during which I speak almost only in English to be close to immersion during the lessons. Do not hesitate to contact me for: - learn the basics - prepare for a test - have support for your lessons - practice the language - ... Whatever your needs, I take a practical and fun approach to English because, in my opinion, it is the best way to learn.

Laura
English Conversation Adults, oral expression, grammar, vocabulary, English expressions
Bachelor in English/Spanish Translation, and holder of a CAP diploma (Certificate of Teaching Aptitudes) I give private English lessons for pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary, style, etc. through conversation. I taught English to groups of children in private schools, teenagers in remediation, then adults in the French Community of Belgium for 15 years. Belgian-American, I am native. I have traveled to London many times to visit art galleries and concerts with friends. I have stayed in the USA a large number of times because my family on my father's side lives there and family is important to me. I provide teaching materials if necessary but a financial contribution for copies is required at the start of the course in addition to the amount of each lesson. I correct the errors by proposing one or more alternatives to the erroneous version but I do not cut the person off while they are speaking, I wait for the end of the sentence, the end of the paragraph, so as not to cut them off. fluidity. I also work by theme by providing copies with texts to read or grammar exercises to do, either at the moment or the next time. I give homework if it suits the student, otherwise, all the work is done in class, and the student reviews between sessions, for faster improvement in their level. We can also work on songs based on song lyrics. Texts based on press articles. It is necessary to be curious, to dare to ask questions, to dare to have a thirst for knowledge and a desire to learn, through trial and error. I use innovative methods. If I don't know how to answer a question, I write it down and answer it in the next class.

English lessons for beginners and more advanced (children and adults), oral practice, accent, vocabulary, pronunciation
The best way to learn a language is to practice it, listen to it and read it! This is why, as far as possible, the lessons will be given IN English, in order to train both your ear and to push you to answer/think in English. A large part of the learning will go through the oral practice of the language: you will be invited to express yourself on various subjects that interest you. Depending on your interests (and the sphere of possibilities), we can practice English through different activities: cooking, song analysis/translation, etc. Do not hesitate to call on me, if your objective is: - To acquire a more fluent English / to converse - Work on your pronunciation/accent - To rework a written text / train your written expression - Learn the basics of the language I am used to working with children and can adapt to all audiences. I also offer lessons for the little ones, for a fun initiation with games and small activities (cooking, crafts, walks, drawing, etc.). I can also address an adult audience seeking to acquire fluent English, a developed vocabulary, and ease in specific contexts.

Cynthia
English Tutoring for Comfort at Work and to Pass Exams
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. TOEFL), for thesis submission, and for other professional work, particularly English for auditors, legal, financial and ambassadorial advisors, business people, project managers, salespeople, physicians, scientists, and academic students. 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.

Feel stuck? Let's take your English to the next level
Since I believe that the learning environment is one of the keys to successful language learning, I endeavor to make students feel comfortable and content in my lessons: to ask questions if they are unsure and keep an easy but rewarding pace of learning. Depending on how my students feel they learn English most effectively, I adapt my lessons to use materials that give them the best results possible. For instance, some students find the continuity of a coursebook effective, while others prefer to be more flexible with articles and podcasts. I know from experience that every student is unique.
