The lessons I provide will be fun and interactive and are suitable for anyone wishing to learn more, or anyone who needs help with exam preparation.

I assign homework after every lesson and will provide periodic progress reports.

I am happy to organise a short video call to help answer any questions you may have and discuss your goals and aspirations before committing to any classes.

Due to the current situation, lessons will be offered online only.

Music is a universal language. It evokes emotions and we can interpret them based on pitch, rhythm, and tempo. Music inspires us and makes us proud. It is a way in which we interact with others and connect with one another. I believe that tutoring should be tailored to the student's specific needs such as understanding, reading and writing music notation and revising key concepts. Music Lessons provided: - GCSE/Scottish National 5 - A Level/Scottish Higher and Advanced Higher Please note: Unfortunately, I cannot tutor with the performance element of the school exams, as I will not have access to my own instruments (piano and flute). However, I am more than happy to listen to you play and offer any advice/tips. I am happy to organise a short video call to help answer any questions you may have and discuss your goals and aspirations before committing to any classes. Due to the current situation, lessons will be offered online only.

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.

English Conversation Elementary and Pre-Intermediate in Breda / English Conversation Intermediate
English Conversation lessons focus on improving your speaking skills. In the lessons different topics will be discussed and debated in an interactive way. This way you can improve your English fluency or vocabulary. You will have the chance to practice English with an experienced and qualified teacher.To join me you don't need anything but your presence! I am an experienced teacher and I speak four languages. I hold a bachelor's degree in teaching of Italian language and Art History from Ljubljana University in Slovenia. Originally from Slovenia I have lived and worked in four different countries because of my husband's film post-production professional. Among other things I lived in London where I taught movement therapy. I moved to the Netherlands five years ago and have been learning Dutch. So I am perfectly aware of the challenges people face when they try to learn a new language as adults. I think that my personal experience can benefit others who are struggling to improve their language skills. My experiences as a teacher have given me the opportunity to interact with a variety of student populations and engage them in learning. In the Netherlands I taught Italian at Buas University - Tourism and Management and English Conversation at Gilde Baronie Apart from my teaching experience I am also a performer, illustrator and movement teacher.
