English - classes /support for children, teenagers and adults

What to expect?

Young children - More of a game/activity learning method but also involves learning a broad scheme of things. It is in a way, an introduction to the basics of the language.

Teenagers - Usually involve set goals to reach by a certain period (for school). The teaching method and intensity depends on the amount of catching up to do.
If no catch up is required a more friendly learning method can be applied depending on the learner's interests.

Adults - More of a discussion-based learning method, depending on the experience of the learner. And can be oriented more towards specific subjects or domains chosen by the learner. It can involve course work or tasks to be done.

Why me?


I was born in Scotland but I grew up mostly in the french-speaking part of Belgium so I would say that both English and French are my natal languages.

I have decent knowledge of the various English cultures, vocabulary, and grammar.
Having traveled for a year in North America and having lived in Australia, Ireland, and Britain.

My mother is an english teacher in a secondary school and has given private english lessons ever since we moved to Belgium when I was six years old . I have participated or helped in many classes when needed.

I have access to a ton of material and her personal knowledge if I or we are experiencing a problem that we can't seem to solve. Or an issue the learner is experiencing that is preventing him/her from advancing.

I am a very "auto-ditact" person who tries to maximize the resources I have and the ones I have access to. I am good at understanding and solving problems and I believe that I can apply this to teaching as well.

I am a very professional person that tries to stay as relaxed and calm as possible. I am also extremely patient and have a lot of dedication.
If there is a deadline and a goal to meet, I will try my very best to make things work.

Additional info

I failed my 3rd and 4th year of secondary school in Belgium due to a bad studying/working method and a lack of studying/working.
I then moved back to Scotland where I could set my final secondary school exams as they have a system where you are classed by age.
That year I dedicated myself to perfecting my learning methods
(and have been continuously doing so since then) and applied myself to achieve the goals that I had.
I passed all of my exams even though I had 3 crash courses and started the school year 2 months late. (French & English: both A's)
I am mentioning this as I believe I can give additional motivation especially to teenagers who are struggling with their english classes at school. And also because I know and understand the psychological effects of struggling to learn and failing especially at that age.

I also know the humiliation that we sometimes feel when speaking a foreign language. I try to be as impartial and non-judgemental as I can in order to make the person feel as relaxed as possible when communicating with them.

I have a bachelor's degree in film directing and producing from Middlesex University that I got in a full-time 2-year course.

I am currently following online courses involving artificial intelligence and data science.

learn French in Brussels with a teacher who has more than 10 years of experience.
I'm French teacher specialised in teaching for foreigners. My method: In my lessons I apply the NLP approach. It sounds very scientific but it is actually fun! It just means that every person learns in a different way: either visual, auditory or kinesthetic. I’ll first analyse your learning profile and then adapt the programme accordingly to your personal needs and level. My lessons are very interactive using a mix of exercises, conversation, animations and games that will help you to improve your French in an effective and motivating way while having fun! I have many years of experience with over more than 500 students from all nationalities. Where: at my office (close to Place du Luxembourg) When: flexible times Garanty : 90% of my previous students enjoyed my methode and realized they made a lot of progress in few hours. Some of them turned fluent after 6 months. 100% of my students who had to be prepare for an exam succeeded :-) Note: Remember that even though my method is very efficient, the teacher can only help and guide you. The main key to your success is YOU! Don’t hesitate to contact me for more information. à bientôt Louis

English is a very common language, useful in many situations, whether tourism, or in a job, to pass an exam. Even in a non-English speaking country, chances are you'll have to use English, whether it's to speak to someone who does not speak French, international usage guidelines, whatever the situation, if there are two people can not speak due to a language barrier they can probably communicate in English.
