Top lerares met hart en ziel, geduldig, begripvol en helpt graag over persoonlijke en professionele groei! Dank je wel Penny!
Les was prima, klaar en duidelijk.
She is very experience and she explained very well ,I enjoyed my class with her.
I'm a Dutch language tudor in Brussels and have teached kids, teens, refugees, politicians and others who want to learn more about this language. I'm interested in many subjects and will customize the classes to your needs. And will help you learn and speak Dutch in a fun, practical way. Homework and extra information on request, focus is on speech! And grammar is additional. All levels. Note: I'm from the Netherlands, so I don't speak Flemish! But for most people that's not a problem.
This class is suitable for (absolute) beginners, mediate users or advanced users of Illustrator. I will customize all classes to your level and objectives so you'll learn all you need in a short time, compared to groups lessons who have a more generic approach. If you work on a marketing department and just want to learn basics or you are a graphic designer and want to learn more tips/tricks or you're just interested and want to refresh your knowledge. All is possible, drop me a line and I'm sure we'll find the right approach for you!

-Conceptual art- The importance of concept in art.
Conceptual art is about expressing emotions, feelings, thoughts in which people can find themselves, they could feel understood or they could feel a connection. No matter what kind of Art you do, no matter which one is your way to express yourself, the most important thing is the concept. Come with me in your own journey of discovering your talent, your voice and your way to express yourself. I will teach you how to choose a concept, how to make your research, how to express your idea in a mood-board and make it happen. I will let you choose your way of sharing your concept and I will help you to make your story real. At the end people could learn something from your art-work and you will learn how to be yourself.

Theodora
Computer Science for KS3 and KS4 as well as IGCSE ICT KS4
As a teacher, I emphasise activity-based learning (constructivism), which enables students to take ownership of their learning and stay engaged throughout a lesson. Some active learning strategies that I use include Role-Playing (Year 7 students act in a drama that explains the IPOS cycle or how sensors work with computers), Debates (Year 10 students argue for and against the topic ‘Should the Internet Be Policed?’), use of Advance Organizers (Year 8 mix and match the python variable to the appropriate data type) etc. I use such teaching approaches because teenage students need to be fully engaged in the lesson otherwise, they can get distracted. During lesson planning, I reflect on my teaching by asking myself - am I transferring lifelong skills to my students? Are they obtaining skills that will give them an edge or a good starting point when they meet with their contemporaries? Parents should see a noticeable improvement in their child’s computer literacy after some months in my class. These principles have guided me in my over eight years of teaching

Branding: Develop your visual identity from A to Z
Brand design is what makes your brand unforgettable, therefore it is one of the most important investments you can make in your business or for yourself. When the most used sources of information for the company are websites, social networks, search engines, brochures and catalogs, the brand of the company must be above others for succeed. While good content is important, it's the visual aspect of your brand that gets the public's attention first. Thus, a good visual brand design offers you these competitive advantages. In a constantly paced world with many competing brands and other distractions, your brand identity will often make the difference between the success and failure of your projects. Learning how to design the brand you dreamed of or learning how to create brands for other companies gives you these skills in high demand. In this course, I will teach you how to design brands from concept to finish. The course will be a project-based course and will use the learning-by-doing approach where you will be guided in detail through the branding process from logo design to business cards, branded t-shirts , brochures, leaflets, letterheads, envelopes, website banners, etc. I will teach you how to design a strong visual brand that creates a sense of unity and cohesion, by maintaining a consistent and clear brand across all marketing channels, because only then can customers instantly recognize your Mark. Branding shows that you are proud of your business. Customers will recognize the investment you make in the success of your own business and know that you will deliver with the same passion when it comes to meeting their needs. Attention to detail in brand design, even something as simple as a business card, can reassure your customers that you value every aspect of your business. A professional branding immediately gives people the impression that you are an established, confident and trustworthy business. No matter the size of the business, putting order in the brand design will bring you more customers, make your product more easily recognizable and encourage people to come back for more. Then sign up for this course if you want to become a beginner to a professional brand designer.
