    Swahili for people interested in East and Central Africa.

    Madarasa yangu yatakuwa sana sana yakuwasiliana pamoja na wanafunzi wangu. Wanafunzi wangu wote watatakikana waonyeshe umakinifu darasani. Ningetaka wasome hili lugha kwa kuuliza maswali, kumaliza kazi zao za nyumbani, wajikakamue kusoma na kuandika katika lugha hili la Swahili.

    Swahili ni lugha ambalo linatumika Afrika Mashariki na nchi zinginezo. Ni lugha tamu sana linalo pendeza mno. Takriban watu millioni mia mbili hutumia hii lugha kwa hivyo ni muhimu sana kulisoma na kulifahamu.

    My classes will be mainly interactive. The student will be required to proactively learn and demonstrate interest in learning the language by asking questions, completing assignments given, practising their reading and improve their writing skills.

    Swahili is a language that is spoken in East Africa as well as other countries. It is a sweet, beautiful language. Approximately two hundred million people speak Swahili therefore it is very important to learn to speak this language and understand it.

    About Me

    My name is Fiona. An East African lady. I am a lively, curious individual that loves to learn new things. I believe learning is never ending. I find joy in tutoring because it is not void of learning. Teaching and learning go hand in hand. My students learn from me, I learn from my students. Knowledge is power. I love to share my knowledge and being part of ones journey in their personal growth and development. I love it when my students are proactive and interested in the lessons. My students should carry out extra research work aside from what they learn during their classes. My students should also do their assignments on time.
    I hope that my students and I will develop a fruitful long lasting teacher-student relationship in which both parties learn from each other.

    Education

    Master of Arts in Project Planning and Management.

    My Masters degree taught me that the more I know, the more I know that I don't know, hence my drive to not only continue learning but to also teach. I believe that teaching and learning go hand in hand.

    Experience / Qualifications

    4years experience in Project Management. I have worked in Social development projects, some that focused on Education.

    7 years experience in Tutoring young children and pre-teens in Swahili.
    The classes will be practical. Students will be required to fully participate in the cooking classes. They will learn the techniques on how to cook diverse dishes common in East Africa, specifically Kenya. Students should declare their allergies prior to the classes in order to provide alternatives and make planning smoother. Students will be required to eat what they have cooked during the cooking class and improve their cooking skills in their free time.

    French Lessons - From Basics to Advanced - From a Native Speaker
    French Lessons - From Basics to Advanced is the right course for you if you are a complete beginner or want to make a fresh start. It is an immersive course which will help you to understand, read, and speak most of the French you will need on holiday or a business trip. The first ten units introduce you to the basic structures and grammatical points you 'll need in everyday situations. Units 1-10 should be taken in order, as each builds on the previous one. Units 11-19 deal with everyday situations such as shopping, eating, booking a room, traveling, and give you the opportunity to put into practice the language you've acquired in the first part.

    Turkish Lessons (In-Person OR Online) for Adults and Kids from an Experienced and Patient Teacher For All Levels-Learn&Practice&Speak!
    I have been teaching Turkish for 17 years. I started to teach when I was studying Turkish Language and Literature. I worked in a language school and at the universities, I suppose that I gained success. 😊 My achievements are directly proportional to my students’ success. My students are mostly teachers, consulate officers, international business people, and also travelers. I feel rewarded when I witness their progress in applying their Turkish language skills to their daily lives. Over the years, I have met hundreds of people from all over the world, taught Turkish, and told them about Istanbul and Turkey. Those people told me about their countries and learned to express themselves in Turkish. For example, I ask them: “Do you like Istanbul?” in Turkish it is “İstanbul’u surveyor museum?” or “ Traffic is very bad in Istanbul!”, “İstanbul’ da çok Trafik var!” The basic but correct conversation is really important for self-confidence in any language. If a learner can master basic sentence forms, the rest will come much easier. On the other hand, making mistakes is also very important. Especially, a learner can not speak without making a mistake the first and second time. My students are always varied and have diverse learning skills. My professionalism also allows me to tailor language education according to individual interests, needs, and capacities. In the classroom, I hold firm three main principles: first, providing a comfortable environment, second, creating an encouraging atmosphere, and third, establishing a collaborative instruction model. I consider that I developed an aptitude for making learning Turkish to become much easier, enjoyable, and practical for my students. I use a book prepared by a university in Turkey. I share the pdf version of the book for my lessons. I also adapt the materials according to the learner’s needs and support the book with my authentic materials. Even though I use a communicative approach, all my lessons are guided by a solid knowledge of grammar. On the online lessons, I send an e-mail after every lesson. That word file includes a vocabulary list, sentences (corrected and uncorrected versions, you can compare both of them easily), grammar point,s and homework for revision. In this way, you can find everything in a file well organized. When we have a face to face lesson, I give a hard copy of this list after every lesson. The lessons could be at my home office or in my student's house or office. I sometimes meet with my students in a coffee shop, I try to prefer silent places. :) How learning a new language opens a new window into a person, teaching Turkish is also the same for me! I was always interested in languages - I could speak a bit of Italian and learned Persian grammar except English. I always think about Istanbul -I was born and grew up here- it is a good place for self-improvement. First and foremost, Istanbul hosts international people coming from around the world. It is considering to me, I am lucky because I have one of the pleasant professions. When teaching Turkish, promoting cross-cultural awareness forms an important part of my lessons. Teaching the language involves both the students and myself in a dynamic conversation about our cultural backgrounds. Teaching Turkish is in fact not only teaching a language but also teaching a culture. I am interested in cinema, music and like visiting museums. I always share the activities with my students. I also teach Turkish to young learners. I started to study Child Development at Istanbul University as a second university in 2018. We say in Turkish, “Studies have no age!" If you want to speak Turkish well, please contact me. It is fun, and we will smile during the lesson!

    The course in Italian, divided into several sections between phonetics, grammar, and vocabulary, aims to provide students with the basics of every day Italian, ensuring them a good command of the essential vocabulary, useful to support both the conversation, understand written Italian and knowing how to write texts in this language.

    Private French lessons with native French speaker in Co. Mayo
    I have been tutoring French and English for the past 20 years to students of various ages & origins and of numerous backgrounds: children, teenagers, adults, professionals, and also sometimes even older seniors (85+). Why am I teaching both languages? Well, I’m bilingual and of American & Swiss/French origins, and... I live in Ireland! This is what makes my teaching strong and relevant because I understand both cultures and therefore I can adapt my classes depending on the language of my students. While I was studying social work in French-speaking Switzerland, I was giving French/English private lessons in order to earn a side income. And I genuinely enjoyed it doing it! After I graduated and started working full-time, I didn’t give up this activity because I loved meeting new people and helping them achieve their goals. My teaching is always interactive in order to hold my students’ attention during the whole length of the classes, using numerous learning tools (photos, newspaper articles, music, videos, etc.) Naturally, I will focus on the priority of each student. Some students will want to improve their pronunciation, grammatical, and vocabulary skills, others will need to prepare a presentation or a speech at school/work, while others just want to learn a new language to enrich their general knowledge. And sometimes too, parents want their younger children to master a new language. Thanks to my education and experience with children, I’m also able to run a class dedicated to them! What you will gain from my course is not only good pronunciation and vocabulary/grammar improvement but also a deeper knowledge and understanding of the culture that surrounds one language! When you speak a language it’s important to appreciate the lifestyle, traditions, and heritage of the nation(s) speaking it. Both French and English are spoken in many countries around the world, as primary languages, and with so many different accents: the learning process is unlimited! Before the COVID restrictions, I was mainly teaching face-to-face and with a maximum of four students, but at the moment, I’m only teaching online (one-and-one) on Zoom. Besides that, I’m also a genealogist, I’m running Spiritual Seminars in the West of Ireland and I have a passion for vegetarian & vegan cuisine. I hold a Degree in Early Childhood Education for many years I owned a private “Before & Afterschool” facility for children aged 4 to 12. I’m looking forward to meeting you

    Learn English Efficiently: Customized Lessons (CELTA Certified)
    Hi, my name is Jenni and I am a bilingual native speaker of English and Finnish. In both English and Finnish I have a very neutral accent: my students often tell me they find my accent easy to understand. I am a CELTA certified English teacher and have been teaching English full-time since 2014 in countries such as Ireland, China, Japan and now in Austria. I have taught both adults and children in private lessons as well as groups. My students have been everything from business professionals to teenagers preparing for their exchange year abroad to young children having their first contact with a foreign language. My greatest strength as a teacher is my experience from using different methods of teaching as well as different levels of students. I customize all my lessons to my students’ needs. Whether you are just beginning to learn English or already have a high level of English and are looking to keep up your skills or perhaps master a grammar point, I am confident I can help you achieve your goal. As a teacher I will customize each of our lessons to your needs and wants. Usually this means that I will assess your level of English during our first lesson. Then by asking you specific questions I find out more about why you are studying English and what is the goal you wish to achieve. We will also together decide what kind of materials (if any) we will use during our lessons. All of this I do so I know how to help you achieve your personal goal. A happy student makes a happy teacher! I look forward to our lessons :)

    Presentation Design, Speech Writing and Orathorical Practice
    They say talking in public is the no1 fear in the world. How about preparing for it intensively, so when the moment comes, you will be confident, engaged and clear, even if your knees are still shaking? I have been coaching debate and public speaking to young people for 4 years. I have a lot of experience in speech writing and helping others prepare for talking in front of a crowd. What we can achieve together: - learn to compose a good speech -> with all the necessary elements in order to have a persuasive effect - design a killer presentation -> complicated ideas sometimes require visual aid for the public. Learn to let go of comic sans and how not to undermine a good talk with outdated graphic work - practice speaking -> 99%blood sweat and tears. I can help you present over, and over and over again until you are satisfied and confident that nothing can go wrong. Remember that all the great speakers of this world made history by practice, not by intuition or accident. My main goal for this course is that you would acquire autonomy to write your own speeches and manage presentations with less effort by being more and more persuasive.

    Sheryar
    General and Academic English taught by a Native Speaker and Editor
    I am a native English speaker from USA and I specialize in teaching, exam preparation, instruction and text correction for several students and professionals residing in Belgium. With experience in 4 different cities across Europe and Asia, I take a multidimensional approach to my classes, tutoring and assisting with both Academic and Business English, to ensure that all my students are at ease during the lessons which results in faster improvements and undeniable results. The lessons cover various topics, mainly focusing on comprehension, reading techniques, writing skills, grammar, vocabulary, and day to day conversation along with accent training and basic language skills. My former clients include students from middle school, high school and college as well as professionals from various occupations. I have worked with them to improve their spoken and written English. I also tutor clients who want to improve their English at an academic level for exams such as the SAT, IELTs, EPSO and TOEFL. These include high school students, college students as well as professionals, ranging from engineers to young interns at the EU parliament. I assist with exam based preparation to achieve the desired results and my clients have not been disappointed so far. I have further proofread, edited, written and improved a large amount of essays, college applications, theses, personal statements, and assignments for various clients at an academic level. I like to make my lessons interesting, but at the same time, I make sure that they are as productive as possible. With a thorough understanding and experience of English grammar and literature, I further take care of ghost writing, proof reading and editing of academic and professional papers. Weekly and monthly rates are possible in this case. I have no issues meeting anywhere in Brussels, or at a location or town close to the city.
