    - Academic English Writing 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 an MA 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 24-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.
    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.

    Flexible English Tutoring for all age groups following Individual Methodology (also SAT and IELTS)
    Hello! My name is Audri and I am a second-year student pursuing a Bachelor of Business Administration degree at KU Leuven. I have followed the British curriculum throughout my school life and English is my first language. I have 4 years of experience as a private tutor and 1 year of experience as a professional English instructor specialising in grammer, reading and writing skills. I worked with IELTS and SAT participants during this time. The aim of my classes is to improve spoken and written English for all age groups. My method of teaching is simple and flexible, we will first discuss and find out what the student needs to work on the most and prioritise that in lessons. In case the student is participating in tests such as IELTS or SAT, we will draw up a lesson plan according to test format. To make things fun for both of us, classes will be as interactive as possible :) Bonus: you get to enjoy learning from someone with a great sense of humour :')

    Creative Writing
    I am a writer, translator and PhD in literature and arts. I believe that act of telling and especially doing it in writing is not only one of the essential ways of expressing onself but is also a conscious contribution to one's life&wellbeing. The way I am giving creative writing involves references to narrative theraphy as well, and is called bookperformance. It has several ways to adapt and apply the person who wants to discover the strength of act of reading, telling and writing; beauty and power of words when they are read out, thought, spoken out or written. I guide you in English, French or Turkish. And, the writing process could involve all the other languages that you want to or need to express yourselves.

    Cours particuliers en Portugais brésilien - Anglais
    Je suis déjà diplômé en portugais-anglais, et maintenant je fais un master en communication multilingue. Je crois que la prononciation est très importante pour une bonne communication, alors j'essaie d'aider mes élèves avec ça. J'adore la grammaire et les différences grammaticales entre les langues.
