    🚀EVERY CHILD IS A MATHS GENIUS | British Tutor 🇬🇧
    .. [British Maths Tutor] ... When I was a young child, I believed I was not a mathematical person. It wasn't until I met an amazing teacher at age 15 that I discovered my mathematical genius and my life was changed forever. I'm eternally grateful to that teacher. My teacher knew that self-image and self-belief is the key to unlock your child's mathematical abilities. Everyone is good at maths, but we all have different styles of thinking. Bad teachers teach every child the same way. My job is find your child's style of mathematics and allow him to discover that for himself. When he discovers that, he will begin to enjoy the beauty and power of mathematics ...and then you will see as the grades begin to soar. 👉Click the blue "Contact Oliver" button above and lets discuss how we can unlock your child's mathematical talents! 😊

    Improve your communication skills in German - Let's focus on speaking! Kursbeschreibung
    With this course I will help you to improve your speaking and communication skills in German as a foreign language. Most language courses in Europe focus on the CEF and speaking is just one out of 4 or 5 skills. In group lessons participants usually don't have enough time to practise speaking. As you usually need good speaking skills for your daily life in Germany or at work, we will work on your communication skills. From CEF A1.2 to CEF C2, I will adapt all topics to your level.

    Private English lessons (language, pronunciation, culture ...)
    Everyone learns differently and at their own pace, so I adapt my teaching to the needs of my student. Remedial lessons, pronunciation, writing or general comprehension assistance. Learning the language alone or combined with culture, anything is possible! I have a bachelor's degree in translation (English / Chinese) as well as a master's degree in multilingual communication (English / French). At the same time, I also took intensive English courses at a university in Florida and courses in modern language teaching. Do not hesitate to contact me for more details.

    Online course for German as a foreign language with all material included
    In my one-to-one online courses, you will find a room just for yourself, where you will be coached within a German speaking setting. Each lesson depends on your needs and aims, which may be to improve in a specific linguistic feature as pronunciation, grammar, spelling or vocabulary. Or it may be to work on a specific goal, e.g. an official language exam, finding work in the German speaking countries or bureaucratic issues. Or it can just be conversation in order to gain fluency. In our class I will also point out what you can do during the week in order to further improve your German language skills and get closer to your goals and I will hand out to you the study material you need.
