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!

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.

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).

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.

English Language (Speaking, Listening, Reading, Writing)
Communicating properly in English is no longer an option but an expectation in academic and professional life. I am a native English speaker (American) with a Ph.D. and prior teaching experience in both individual and group scenarios, and my goal with this course is to help others improve their speaking, listening, reading, and writing abilities in the English language. Approaching the language with native experience, I can provide guidance related to both educational and business English and can cover broad usage including comprehension, conversation, grammar, and situational skills. I am also able to help improve general language skills (e.g. accent training) and can provide extensive help and instruction regarding SAT, GRE, MCAT, EPSO, IELTS, and TOEFL exams.

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.
