Fun and easy going person Looking forward to the next lesson
Hele goede docente!
I can definitely recommend Cigdem as a turkish teacher. She adapts to your learning speed very well. As a native speaker she naturally masters the language and can clearly explain concepts that are not very obvious to non-turkish speakers.
Cigdem is a great teacher who takes the time to integrate learnings with real-life discussions. For example, we spend 10 minutes at the start of each lesson and throughout the course of the lesson an extra 15-20 minutes having a chat about subjects including work and life in order to be able to apply all the theoretical learnings to the actual language.
Erg tevreden over de werkwijze van Ciğdem. Ze is praktisch, denkt goed mee en is hulpvaardig en flexibel en dat vind ik belangijk. Heel aardig en vriendelijk in de omgang. We hopen dat we echt meters kunnen maken met Turkse les en dat de vorderingen op korte termijn te horen zijn. Çigdem geeft ons nu in ieder geval een vertrouwd gevoel en we zijn blij dat we met haar samenwerken.
...
Nederlands voor kinderen Dutch for kids at beginning level. Mostly focused on the expat families to help their kids get into the language. As a pre-school and/or early phase lessons to teach the basics of the language, as well as practical dialogues.
Turkish lessons for any level of students from the very beginner to advanced level students. I, as a native speaker of Turkish, have a master degree on teaching and currently living in Leuven. Upon agreement, we can organize the lessons in other cities like Brussels as well. Ik ben een leraar met een masterdiploma. Turks is mijn moedertaal. Ik wil mijn beroep in België houden door Turkse lessen te geven. Je suis un enseignant avec une maîtrise. Le turc est ma langue maternelle. Je veux garder mon métier en Belgique en donnant des cours de turc.

english grammar and vocabulary exercises, tenses and articles
I am an electrical engineering graduate from South Africa and have specialized in Computer Operating Systems Engineering. I have been living in Belgium for 6 years now and have noticed how the majority speaks English and making mistakes in English language tenses and grammatical errors, and moreover I think the young and old deserve a chance to learn this world recognized language as it is a world lingua-franca. The lessons are given according to your needs and the level of English you already have. For kids they are also given in a sort of gaming, singing and many more. For university and college students, the lessons are according to their academic needs and more talking as a practice. These lessons can be given to your place or online or in Bouwhandelstraat, 2140 Borgerhout. For any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Mathematics, computer science, chemistry, French, English, Dutch, study method, preparation entrance exam medicine
Top student I am a young, motivated and enthusiastic mathematics computer science teacher. Students may not always be able to follow along well in certain lessons because sometimes things go fast and sometimes just need a little more time to understand certain things. Understanding the subject matter is very important. I therefore offer tailor-made extra lessons for every student! Every student is different, learns differently. Because of the teacher training that I have followed and the years of experience in giving tutoring, I know a lot of (online) tools with which students can store things efficiently and better in the memory. The student will realize that learning in this way is also much more fun! Courses in which I give extra lessons: - Math - Computer science (Excel, Word, Access, Programming ...) - Scientific subjects - French - English - Dutch - Preparation entrance exam medicine (I have clear courses) Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. :)

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.

Kondelina
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.
