Ruijiao
Mandarin Chinese (all levels, all ages, all purposes)
I have a Chinese teaching degree and for years I have been teaching students from all over the world the beautiful Chinese language, mostly only through Skype or other chatting programs. My students have been beginners up till people wanting to perfect their Mandarin. Some students only want to learn to talk a bit for a holiday, others want to be able to read and write. I enjoy making for each student a personal studying plan that fits their needs, and also the teaching material I will choose for each student individually. My youngest student started when he was 4, but I have also students who picked it up after retirement. The way I see it is that as long as you enjoy yourself, you are never too young or old to learn anything.

Toefl/IELTS/GRE/GMAT Preparation in Tilburg region
TOEFL/IELTS, GRE/GMAT are the world’s most popular English language tests. Some people find the IELTS and TOEFL test tough as they are not fluent in English and have weak grammer. During the teaching period, I will consider many aspects to make you improve in all four different skills (reading, listening, speaking and writing).

Click the Chinese languange and Asia culture on/off-line with the help of an articulate and humorous native!
Hey! I am Yu-GU. Nice to meet you! This lesson can help you set out to learn how to speak Hanyu, read and write Zhongwen. For this purpose you will study Chinese alphabet (Hanyu Pinyin), characters(Hanzi), vocabulary, grammar, sentence structure and common words and phrases. If you want to learn the Chinese language, you've found the right class! Course materials can be: -Standard Course HSK (for language ability test) -Experiencing Chinese (for immersive classes) -AP Chinese -....... -any tailor-made materials interest you This course is designed in three versions for different kinds of participants: 1) A Beginner! - have little or no prior knowledge of the Chinese language; - want to learn how to make yourself understood in Chinese, when travelling for example, understanding and speaking common everyday words (and sentences) in diffrent typical scenarios ; - hope to express 1-10 and some larger numbers in China in speech or by gesture decently. *Some examples at this stage: - Hello! Thank you. How are you? - Sorry. / You're welcome! - I can speak Chinese! What's your name? - What's the date today? What's the time now? - I'd like a cup of coffee. Is this seat free? - (and other current Chinese usages in any scenarios you're interested in! Definitely I can teach you fast haha) **Naturally, pronunciation and the four vowel tones are and important part of the lessons, but participants also learn the principles of Chinese writing and gain and understanding of Chinese culture! 2) An Intermediate Learner - have upper-intermediate knowledge of Chinese; - need to increasingly enhance our active language skills, to expand your vocabulary, practice reading without Pinyin, and master more advanced grammar and fixed structures to be able to make longer sentences; - interest yourself in being able to express your views on common everyday topics, like foods, drinks, gifts, weather, Chinese habits and common practice. 3) An Advanced Learner - can speak and understand Chinese reasonably well; - attempt to deepen your understanding of Chinese culture and learn more advanced grammatical constructs to communicate more specific and complex ideas in Chinese, both verbally and in writing; - focus on topics dealt with leisure and hobbies, hospitality, culture, arts, potery, history, dynasties and civilization, of modern and ancient China. ***I have lived in China for over twenty years, travelled to many cites (including Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Nanjing, Hongkong, Macau and so on), and was educated at respected schools and university. Currently I am studying Social Sciences in the Netherlands and I am a fan of Chinese literature/Japanese anime/Marvel films, so it's also welcome that you would like to have an informative and interesting talk in Chinese about these topics. +China captures the imagination with its fascinating contrasts. A modern-day global economic entity that proudly upholds ancient traditions. Definitely, a good way to start learning more about China is by taking Chinese! (K-12 Math tutoring class in English/Chinese is offered as well.)

Maryuri
English as a Second Language, English as an Additional Language
I am currently freelancing/tutoring and studying French in which I have attained a B1 level. Prior relocating to Belgium, I have taught English at IB international school settings for the 18 years. I have also taught English as an additional language (EAL) to students that are new to the International Baccalaureate system. I am knowledgeable and comfortable teaching beginners and non native speakers. My previous teaching destinations were culturally diverse and certainly enriched my professional growth; Colegio International de Caracas in Venezuela, Dasman International School in Kuwait and Copenhagen International School in Denmark. Regarding my pedagogical training, I am capable of dealing with aspects concerning students’ psycho- educational well being as well as equipped with the tools for creating, renovating and implementing language based curriculums. Other components of my academic background worth mentioning, BA in Special Education and Applied Pedagogics. In addition to this, I obtained the CELTA (certificate for teaching English to non native speakers) as well as TKT (teachers’ knowledge test) modules 1,2 and 3 which are mandatory qualifications for language teachers in the UK.
