English language and written courses to prepare you for university in the United Kingdom.

My tutoring prepares students in their final years of school who are looking to move to the UK for higher education. The standard for essay writing is very high and students can struggle to communicate their understanding in reflective and analytical ways, in line with UK-based institutions.
I would focus on the English writing skills they have and develop these to a university standard.
I have studied my undergraduate BA in International Politics at King's College, my MSc in Gender and Social Policy at the London School of Economics and Political Science and completed a graduate scheme with Frontline, qualifying as a social worker in 2017. I am well equipped to prepare students moving to the UK and looking to achieve a high academic standard.
In preparation for leaving home and alongside the academic development that I focus on, I will be working on communication skills and confidence-building. I have qualified for my first year in systemic family therapy training and use these skills to support young people with new contexts, communication skills and adult, independent environments.

Jonah
Learn German or English with an ex-patrié
German-American offers his humble services to assist you in learning his native languages, whether for a successful exam or just for the sake of better understanding the words of Goethe or Faulkner. Sharing my languages ​​through common interests, such as music, theater or film, are my favorite ways to start learning.

Grace
Private lessons - Learn English written, oral and read
As French is not my mother tongue, I had to learn this language myself both in writing and in writing in a short time, in order to pass the 5th year of high school. In my personal experience, I know what it takes to start a person in learning a language and I assure that the person learns precisely. My classes are taught at the base in English, but for students who do not understand me, I speak English and then translate the sentences into French, at worst I speak French. I know from experience that a student or a student who speaks a second language and / or knows how to write in that language without mastering grammar, has a knowledge, neither clear nor precise language, which results in slowing down his learning. For this reason, I start my classes with a grammar exercise, and I leave it to my student, at the end of each class, one or two grammar exercises related to the grammar exercise done during the class. As for the background of my classes, I and my students do listening, reading, speaking and writing exercises based on themes that can be seen in school. Since I also learned a second language, I try to advise my students about my experiences so that they can take over and become independent.

Jamie
English Language Classes with Native Speaker - Conversational, Listening, Written
Learning a foreign language is an intellectually-challenging and extremely enjoyable and fulfilling endeavor. It is also increasingly important in today's globalized world of work. I am a native English speaker, having grown up in Kent, England. I have a diverse experience teaching languages - teaching young Colombian offenders English in Bogotá, teaching English to Colombian students prior to a year abroad, and teaching Spanish to young professionals in London. Throughout all of my teaching, I try to ensure the lessons are ultimately enjoyable (as this is the most effective way to learn!) and tailor the lesson to the individual needs of the students. Happy to adapt the lessons and style of teaching to the needs and desires of the student; I will be available to teach at the house of my student, at my house, or in a café - wherever is most convenient! I am studying a postgraduate Masters in International Conflict and Security and will be in Brussels throughout the Summer, the remainder of 2018 and the entirety of 2019. Please free feel to contact if you have any questions :)

Do not hesitate to contact me for more information! :)

Clémence
English
Commercial Engineer (ICHEC) student free to give English classes for all levels. Having gone abroad for one year (Canada, New Brunswick), the best way to teach remains for me based on conversation. Before that, the grammatical and theoretical aspects will of course have to be studied.

English Language improvement for ESL (English as a Second Language) or first language students
English can be a complex language when not understood well. You will learn how to improve your sentence structures, use of tenses, and more advanced students will learn how to improve their essay writing and/or critical analysis of any texts, fiction or non-fiction. I can provide help for students with English as either a second language or as a first language.

English, Dutch, Polish, Spanish, Russian
I am basically based on what the student is struggling with. We work on the part that seems to hinder her in her studies and then we see if the work bears fruit. Only the teacher can not give a perfect course if the pupil himself is not attentive. It must be give-and-donate for it to be effective. See you soon.

Kenza
Private tuition and tutoring in science and languages
First of all, I take the course with the student during a first meeting where he / she will explain to me his difficulties and incomprehension. Then step by step I would approach the courses in a structured and simple way so that the student follows and clings without losing hope and all this in a fun way.

Jenniffer
Intreptive English at all levels: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1.

My aim is to motivate people, to make them love the language, to be able to express their opinions, to communicate. Every lesson is different and full of fun. As for the Russian language,I try to improve speaking and listening skills.

Marie
English classes and art classes
English is the first international language and it is a language that allows us to communicate with people even without knowing them in any country. In my classes I do not learn theoretically but I learn orally so that by dint of speaking every day with a person who claims not to know French you can know how to manage in a conversation and by force to manage you go consider that you will know English much better than at first. English is my mother tongue and I would love to share my chance to know this language with others For the art class I learn how to mix colors with oil pastels or not, crayons, water or oil paint and even pencil I also learn to draw. I find that art surrounds us, do you imagine the world without color you?
