- Academic English Writing And Speaking With A Native Speaker -

This class is for students of all ages. I teach students how to write assured and professional essays for their academic courses, ranging from undergraduate- to PhD-level. Students will learn not only the language itself, but also the conventions and styles particular to English-language writing, and how to properly introduce and structure their work. I will also proofread students' final theses for a discounted rate, provided we have met for more than five hours.

I am a native English speaker from London, England. I hold an MA from Exeter, and an MPhil from Cambridge, both in Classics, and am currently studying for a masters at KU Leuven in Philosophy. I have written dozens of highly-graded essays in this time, winning several prizes, and have helped peers to similar success. I have also been a part-time professional proofreader for three years.

About Me

I am a British 25-year-old recent graduate of the University of Cambridge (MPhil Classics), now doing my MA Philosophy at KU Leuven. I have been studying Latin since I was 11 and Ancient Greek since I was 17, and am a keen reader and writer. I led the Creative Writing Society at my undergraduate university, and continue to write fiction alongside my academic work. I am always enthusiastic to help people in any area I can, especially those in which I am trained, and genuinely enjoy seeing people improve under my tutelage.

Education

University of Cambridge (MPhil Classics: Merit)

University of Exeter (BA Classics: 1st, and Best Dissertation)

Experience / Qualifications

I have taught undergraduate languages throughout my courses, and as President of the Creative Writing Society taught fiction writing to classes of university students.

Reviews (1)

Charlie is very attentive teacher, open to explain all the details of language. He provides good exercises for pronunciation. Nice to improve English with him.
I offer tutoring up to university level (in Latin) and secondary-school level (in Greek), based around the John Taylor JACT courses, but with the freedom to go wherever the student wants. I favour the use of real ancient texts where possible, and at higher levels encourage genuine engagement with literature as something to be read and enjoyed, not just studied. I hold a Masters in Classics from the University of Cambridge (Gonville and Caius College, 2018) and have worked with some of the most prominent classicists in the world, including Richard Hunter and Mary Beard. This is the experience I am able to give back, by offering a truly informed form of classical tuition.

One-to-one or small group lessons. At your place or mine near the Grote Markt in Leuven I design my classes and choose my materials according to the specific needs, level and interests of each student. In every case I try to create a fun and stimulating class environment. The truth is, I love English and I like sharing this enthusiasm with my students!

Math or English tutoring, also SAT preparatory tutoring.
This course is fitted individually, depending on the needs of the student. If the student would like to focus on grammar then the material should be sent beforehand so I can have a chance to look at it and prepare for any questions that may arise. If the student would like to focus on spelling and/or spoken English then no material should be sent beforehand, just an overview of the request. If the student would like to focus on reading I'll supply the materials depending on their level. As for math, I only teach high school students and first year University students. The material for the class should be sent to me beforehand so I can be better prepared to answer any questions.

LANGUAGE LABEL: Giving course to learn Dutch and English
In a personal learning route you walk on your own level and at your own pace through vocabulary, grammar and especially talking. No school stuff, but a lot of variety to stimulate your GOESTING for the language and give a boost to your self-confidence. YES, YOU CAN! I am a certified language teacher (NL-ENG) with many years of experience in schools, adult education and companies, and consider me a 'language desire architect'. Together we open doors in a creative way, we bring the world a piece of 'on your doorstep'. And, who knows, in the near future you will have a (linguistic) lump richer!

Weiyan
English Creative Writing, Speech and Innovative Presentation Skills
Greetings! I am currently pursuing a Masters course at KU Leuven and would like to extend my services as an English tutor. BUT FIRST! A little about myself. I'm an native English-speaking Chinese Malaysian with four years of international school teaching experience engaging with students between ages 10 and 18. The methods I employ have less to do with sitting down and constantly repeating grammar exercises, and more to do with creative writing games that allow students to embrace and understand mistakes, rather than fear them; I live and love to make things fun! Classes will consist mainly of activities; debates, short discussions, writing games as well as standard language exercises (depending on what you need/want).

English lessons for Children and Teenagers. Communication practice.
I am a 20 year old Irish student that is studying teacher education in UCLL. I have vast experience teaching teenagers and young children. I would offer the opportunity to speak with a fluent English speaker and also the opportunity to learn new phrases and expressions. Regular assessments will be given in order to prove that significant improvements had been made. The classes would be mutually beneficial, the customer would improve their English and I would gain more teaching experience.

I'm a native English language speaker, who currently works for a language school in Brussels. I like to make all my lessons focus on the actual speaking, themsot important part of any language. It doesn't matter how well you can write English if you can't express yourself vocally! My goal is to evaluate your level, and then design tailor made lessons to improve your speaking confidence and your ability to hold conversations in English. I hope my lessons are fun, interesting and the right level of challenge.

Anusha
Economics (Secondary to University levels) and English (Primary level) Tutoring
Economics classes for University level students will be based on student's needs (some suggestions: Econometrics, Microeconomics, Quantitative Economics). For school students, it can involve advanced learning or basic Economic knowledge (aligned to student's needs). English classes will involve writing and speaking practice (based on the student's existing knowledge). I tend to explain things pretty well. I always try to assign homework for further practice. Times can be discussed with me and I do accommodate students based on mutual availability.
