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.

Cours particulier d'anglais par un bilingue étudiant en traduction et interprétation Anglais-Espagnol à l'ISTI
-Étudiant en langues diplômé de Cambridge (CAE) et ayant passé un an en Angleterre, propose des cours particuliers d'anglais. Mes cours sont proposés aux étudiants de tout niveau étudiant dans l'enseignement primaire, secondaire ou encore supérieur, que ce soit pour un soutien scolaire ou tout simplement pour apprendre la langue. -Les cours s'adaptent à vos besoins mais se font toujours de manière sérieuse et très décontracté. J'ai le contact facile et vous mettrez à l'aise dès le début, progression garantie.

Serdane
Cours d'Anglais pour élèves du secondaire ou adultes
Je m'appelle Serdane et je propose des cours d'Anglais aux élèves du secondaires et adultes qui auraient du mal à développer une méthode de travail qui leur convient. Extravertie et pétillante...et surtout, beaucoup d'humour! Je pense que l'apprentissage des langues repose avant tout sur le développement d'une méthode d'apprentissage adaptée. Certains apprennent les langues de manière intuitive en se jetant dans le bain de la conversation. D'autres ont au contraire besoin de se voir exposer les concepts grammaticaux de manière rigoureuse avant de se lancer dans la conversation. Il y autant de façons d'apprendre qu'il y a d'élèves... C'est pourquoi j'adapte mes cours aux besoins de chacun, et surtout, je tente d'aider d'élève à découvrir ce qui marche pour lui afin qu'il puisse continuer à progresser de façon indépendante. Quelques mots sur mon parcours: Après des études secondaires à Saint-Boniface, j'ai fait un double bac bilingue (Fr.-Angl.) droit et sciences économiques à l'université Saint-Louis, puis un master en droit à l'UCL (terminé juin 2018) comprenant un Erasmus en Allemand à l'Université de Vienne. Ce parcours varié m'a permis de développer une méthode de travail solide. Mes domaines de compétences: - Renforcement - Rattrapage - Révisions grammaticales - Cours de conversation - Méthode de travail (organisation, planning des révisions, etc.) Mon tarif inclut un soutien scolaire complet (cours privés, la possibilité de poser des questions en dehors des heures de cours, rédaction et correction d'interrogations, etc. ).

Anna
English Classes with an experienced teacher from Canada.
Hi there, My name is Anna and I am from Toronto, Canada. I have been teaching English for more than 6 years. I have taught in many countries around the world like Canada, France, China, Bulgaria,Spain, Chile and Belgium. I am a Celta certified (grade A) ESL teacher. I have experience teaching English to adults, teenagers and children of all levels from beginner to advanced. Whether you need practice with your pronunciation, grammar, increase your vocabulary or are studying to pass an English proficiency exam, I can help you achieve your goals. Having been a student of languages myself I understand the struggles that come with learning a new language. This is why I think it’s very important for English lessons to be interesting, relevant and fun. I want to know what’s important to you and what you want to learn whether it’s conversation practice, accent reduction or grammar, the focus is on you. Before our first class we can discuss your interests, strengths, weaknesses and overall goals and together we can create a suitable learning plan for you. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or requests. I would be really happy to be your teacher, so what are you waiting for …contact me and let’s start learning.

Emma
Native English/ Native Spanish teacher. Classes for complete beginners, students, professionals and language enthusiasts. Individual lesson
I have been giving English and Spanish language lessons for the past 5 years. I have taught little one's just starting-off school, high school students, university students and professionals. I adapt each lesson to individual/ group needs. I ensure the class focuses on the objectives the student has set out, whether this be preparing for an exam or delving into a particular subject matter to improve fluency and confidence. I usually suggest that the lesson be an hour and a half long as I believe this is the perfect time frame for ensuring productivity/concentration. Most importantly, I promise to make our lesson a fun learning experience! Emma

Sanhatul (Audri)
Flexible English Tutoring for all age groups following Individual Methodology (also SAT and IELTS)
Hello! My name is Audri and I am a second-year student pursuing a Bachelor of Business Administration degree at KU Leuven. I have followed the British curriculum throughout my school life and English is my first language. I have 4 years of experience as a private tutor and 1 year of experience as a professional English instructor specialising in grammer, reading and writing skills. I worked with IELTS and SAT participants during this time. The aim of my classes is to improve spoken and written English for all age groups. My method of teaching is simple and flexible, we will first discuss and find out what the student needs to work on the most and prioritise that in lessons. In case the student is participating in tests such as IELTS or SAT, we will draw up a lesson plan according to test format. To make things fun for both of us, classes will be as interactive as possible :) Bonus: you get to enjoy learning from someone with a great sense of humour :')

Valmir
Cours particuliers en Portugais brésilien - Anglais
Je suis déjà diplômé en portugais-anglais, et maintenant je fais un master en communication multilingue. Je crois que la prononciation est très importante pour une bonne communication, alors j'essaie d'aider mes élèves avec ça. J'adore la grammaire et les différences grammaticales entre les langues. Je pense qu’on apprend plus quand on apprend en s’amusant.
