English Tutoring, Exam Preparation, and Dutch Basics
I am offering English lessons to students of all ages and levels as part of school, exam preparation, or just out of interest in vocabulary, grammar, and/or pronunciation. My experience has been mostly with children individually or in group lessons learning English as a second language of ages between 7 and 17. My aim is to help students establish a goal and help them along the path of reaching that goal, with clear progress milestones. I have an American High School Diploma so I speak English at native level but I can also teach in Dutch depending on your needs. I have a 1560/1600 on my SAT and 5/5 in AP English Language so I am also happy to tutor for these specific exams for older students. I teach Dutch to those looking to learn basics as part of living in the Netherlands. Similarly, I also hope to establish clear goals and be able to track progress throughout lessons with a student.

English for professionals (refresher, fluency, conversation ...)
***** Availability update made on 09/01/2020. Valid until further notice ***** I offer you my services in order to make you truly effective orally / in writing in English. If you have to use English in the course of your professional activity and you don't get comfortable with it ... If you are tired of being spotted immediately as French ... If you don't know still not when to use the present perfect / preterite .... I'm here to help you and make you progress. * Linguist by training and author of school textbook in this capacity. Note that I am not this young student who had a good mark in the Baccalaureate or this other who is supposedly bilingual. I have been teaching as a teacher in the National Education since 1995 and I can tell you that teaching cannot be improvised. It is not an activity that we do "like that". I offer you my expertise and my experience. By the way, to have 10/20 in the Baccalaureate, it is enough to have the A2 level (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd year) so I let you imagine the desperation of future engineers who must obtain at least 750 in the TOEIC! (the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course is prepared according to your needs. Feedback is always given. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, connections ... Oral grammar. * Adaptation to all levels: => Post-bac: preparation for TOEIC, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First-Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Orals and writings from grandes écoles such as ENA => Orals and writings from business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...) Please do not hesitate to contact me for further details.

Serdane
English courses for high school students or adults
My name is Serdane and I offer English classes to high school and adult students who would have trouble developing a work method that suits them. Extrovert and bubbly ... and above all, a lot of humor! I think language learning is primarily about developing a suitable learning method. Some learn the languages ​​intuitively by throwing themselves into the bath of conversation. Others, on the contrary, need to be exposed to the grammatical concepts in a rigorous way before starting the conversation. There are so many ways to learn that there are students ... That's why I adapt my courses to everyone's needs, and most importantly, I try to help students discover what works for them. him so that he can continue to progress independently. A few words about my background: After high school in Saint-Boniface, I did a bilingual double bachelor's degree (law) and economics at Saint-Louis University, then a master's degree in law at UCL (completed June 2018) including an Erasmus in German at the University of Vienna. This varied career allowed me to develop a solid working method. My areas of expertise: - Enhancement - catching up - Grammatical reviews - Conversation course - Method of work (organization, schedule of revisions, etc.) My price includes a complete tutoring (private lessons, the possibility to ask questions outside class hours, writing and correcting questions, etc.).

English for beginners , learn to speak english with me via webcam
English is a West Germanic language that was first spoken in early medieval England and is now a global lingua franca. Named after the Angles, one of the Germanic tribes that migrated to England, it ultimately derives its name from the Anglia (Angeln) peninsula in the Baltic Sea. It is closely related to the Frisian languages, but its vocabulary has been significantly influenced by other Germanic languages, particularly Norse (a North Germanic language), as well as by Latin and Romance languages, especially French. English is the third most widespread native language in the world, after Standard Chinese and Spanish. It is the most widely learned second language and is either the official language or one of the official languages in almost 60 sovereign states. There are more people who have learned it as a second language than there are native speakers. English is the most commonly spoken language in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, Ireland and New Zealand, and it is widely spoken in some areas of the Caribbean, Africa and South Asia. So as you can see we widely need to speak english in nowadays , it's necessary once you are abroad and don't speak the language of the country . Let's start together to learn english , step by step we'll achieve to highest result. I am experienced french teacher , but I also teach english for beginners , armenian , russian and dutch for beginners . I am waiting for you my lovely students
