    Learn English (children, adults, and Business English) with an experienced Cambridge CELTA qualified teacher

    Hi! I'm Michelle - British, from London, and have lived in Brussels for 15 years. I'm an English language teacher (Cambridge CELTA qualified) and have been teaching since 2013. I teach both adults and children. For adults, I offer general English, Business English, and pronunciation. I can also advise you on your CV, job interviews, and proofreading in English. When the Covid restrictions are relaxed, I will resume teaching basic computer skills.

    For children, I give private lessons but also have classroom experience: one year in a collège in France, 4 months in a nursery school in Thailand and currently I teach two hours per week in a primary school in Brussels.

    I love teaching, meeting people of all ages and cultures and most importantly helping you to communicate better and gain confidence.

    I tailor my courses to your needs, using a variety of resources. Friendly and patient, I like to make my lessons fun and educational. I am happy to provide you with references upon request.

    Looking forward to meeting you!

    I give tutoring courses in any subject of the Belgian school system up to the University: French, mathematics, English, history, geography, Spanish, sciences, philosophy .
