Marco
Flexible private lessons in Math, English and Spanish
Hello, My name is Marco and I am from Chile. I am currently a student at KU Leuven University, pursuing a Bachelor in Science of Business Administration (3rd year). My goal is to help students achieving their goals, by developing their skills, motivating them and making them more comfortable with written and oral skills in English and Spanish, as well with mathematics. I can be of great help with languages because my mother tongue is Spanish and I have lived in the United States for three years. I have been taking all my courses in English up to this date. In addition, I am confident that I can help with Algebraic Mathematics, as I was in the Honor Roll in High School and I am currently following an in-depth mathematical course. I have succeeded my ACT exam in both English and Mathematics, and I have obtained a high grade in the TOEFL (English proficiency test). My style of teaching is flexible and easy-going. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!

Anna
English course given by a British student in translation and interpretation
ABOUT ME: I am a student in translation and interpretation in English / German / French. I am of English and Japanese origin and English is therefore my mother tongue. I lived in London until my teenage years and then continued my studies in Belgium. My French is also of maternal level as I have been here for a long time. COURSE CONDUCT: I give lessons to beginners and intermediates. I personally find it extremely difficult to learn a language by studying only grammar, vocabulary and syntax. So I use an approach where we implement, orally or in writing, all the rules that the learning books give us in order to better understand and retain the language. I also give oral lessons during which we discuss different subjects. I have always loved languages and give lessons to those who want to learn them. It's really a passion! I hope I can help you.

Keir
English & French - classes /support for children, teenagers and adults
What to expect? Young children - More of a game/activity learning method but also involves learning a broad scheme of things. It is in a way, an introduction to the basics of the language. Teenagers - Usually involve set goals to reach by a certain period (for school). The teaching method and intensity depends on the amount of catching up to do. If no catch up is required a more friendly learning method can be applied depending on the learner's interests. Adults - More of a discussion-based learning method, depending on the experience of the learner. And can be oriented more towards specific subjects or domains chosen by the learner. It can involve course work or tasks to be done. Why me? I was born in Scotland but I grew up mostly in the french-speaking part of Belgium so I would say that both English and French are my natal languages. I have decent knowledge of the various English cultures, vocabulary, and grammar. Having traveled for a year in North America and having lived in Australia, Ireland, and Britain. My mother is an english teacher in a secondary school and has given private english lessons ever since we moved to Belgium when I was six years old . I have participated or helped in many classes when needed. I have access to a ton of material and her personal knowledge if I or we are experiencing a problem that we can't seem to solve. Or an issue the learner is experiencing that is preventing him/her from advancing. I am a very "auto-ditact" person who tries to maximize the resources I have and the ones I have access to. I am good at understanding and solving problems and I believe that I can apply this to teaching as well. I am a very professional person that tries to stay as relaxed and calm as possible. I am also extremely patient and have a lot of dedication. If there is a deadline and a goal to meet, I will try my very best to make things work. Additional info I also know the humiliation that we sometimes feel when speaking a foreign language. I try to be as impartial and non-judgemental as I can in order to make the person feel as relaxed as possible when communicating with them.

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.).
