Reviews (5)

Great lesson with experienced teacher. I needed to review some pronunciation in English and Clive was the perfect teacher. Relaxed, professional, dedicated, educated, former diplomat, understands the needs of international business people and students. He also gives a lot of interesting feedback and additional information such literature, links, etc.
Clive is a great English teacher that i strongly recommend. After a first informal level assessment, Clive made some suggestions for our programme (5 times 1h30) based on my professional needs. He demonstrated adaptability and was happy to adjust the lesson to last minute requests from my side. Clive is always punctual and has his material ready for the lesson. In a nutshell, Clive is a great value for money for those who are looking for specific English reinforcement.
GREAT!
A profitable lesson

Ophélie
Cours particuliers d'anglais natif/English lessons NATIVE SPEAKER tous niveaux (Charleroi/Brussels)
J'étudie la langue anglaise et la littérature anglaise en Angleterre à l'université et serai bientôt graduée comme enseignante en Angleterre. Apprendre l'anglais ou l'améliorer avec une enseignante venant d'Angleterre est l'idéal; j'ai aussi accompli mes secondaires en Angleterre! Le prix que je demande n'est pas très élevé pour des cours efficaces. Je dispose de plusieurs manuels d'anglais pour débutant à confirmé. Je puis aussi donner des cours pour la littérature/ langue anglaise. Mes deux d'expériences en tant que professeur particulier en Angleterre m'ont apporté plusieurs acquis concernant les méthodes d'enseignement. J'ai appris à être patiente et à encourager d'avantage mes étudiants. N'hésitez pas à me contacter tant que je suis disponible car je voyage beaucoup. :-) Ma résidence est à Charleroi mais je peux très bien voyager jusqu'à Bruxelles (compter frais de transport).

English for Beginners
As a native English speaker and having studied in the language (and the language itself) for over 15 years, I would love to tutor you or your kids for the same in the comfort of your own place! If your kids already go to a certain class and could benefit off some extra practice in the evening I'm your call :)

Asher
English conversation for Students, Adults and Children
My name is Asher, I am an English native speaker born in Canada. I have a lot of experience teaching people correct and most importantly, fluent conversation skills in English. I will help you become more confident and free to express yourself within the vocabulary that you require and desire to have. I believe in a positive playful approach to language that allows for more flow during a conversation. I think that correct use of grammar will come through joyful practice and within a real and interesting conversation between us. I am well educated in many different subjects and can find interest in most things which means that we are likely to have a very flowing conversation. This will, with no doubt, facilitate the learning process. I am fluent as well in French and Swedish.

English tutoring for students of all ages ; teacher who will make languages fun again
I am a qualified English tutor with two years English tutoring experience in Paris and 5 months classroom experience in Spain. I have experience in all levels of the Cambridge exams and all levels of the CEFR scale from pre A1 to C2. I know that many students don't like learning English from bad experience at school, so I try to make learning fun, but students will be worked hard. I assign homework weekly and give assessments in order to establish a progress report and focus with the student on areas of difficulty.
