Whether you need help with your audition pieces for drama school, or you require an outside eye to prepare you for your Drama A Level, I can direct you to present the best version of yourself as a performer and the text you have at hand. I will take a comprehensive approach to your performance. We will focus on the context of the text and its history. We'll research and explore your character whilst discovering your strengths as a performer. We'll discuss the choices you'll be making for your performance through Stanislavski, Laban Efforts and voice/accent work, or whatever we find works best for you. I will ensure that you'll go for your audition, confident in the knowledge that you've embodied the character and the text. I'm an actor, director and theatre academic with an MA Acting from The Academy of Live and Recorded Arts (ALRA). I've taught a range of subjects, including Stanislavski, Brecht and Animal Studies, as well as Applied Theatre History.

A glorious journey into poetry: creative writing and learning
My classes involve a mixture of discovering poetry in its diverse forms and responding to writing exercises. All activities have the aim of expanding the student's personal relationship with this incredible art form and developing their power to self-express creatively. We will look at how poetry continues to challenge the status quo and can act as a space for connection, emotional healing and rebirth in climates of limitation and struggle. I am passionate about teaching poetry writing because I have seen how beneficial the sharing and crafting of poetry is for mental health; I want to bring this passion into people's lives and am as excited to learn from each student's insights and creations as I am to impart knowledge and feedback. I am an experienced tutor and published poet with a first-class honours degree in English and Spanish from Durham University. My anthology "Poems of Hope", on the subject of mental health, was published in 2019 to fundraise for Mind UK. I am currently studying part-time postgraduate course in teaching creative writing with Cambridge University to complement writing and teaching. I have 5+ years of experience tutoring English and have devised and delivered poetry workshops for vulnerable adults as well as tutored creative writing throughout the pandemic. I have also spent a year working with SEN students in secondary education as a teaching assistant. I welcome teenagers and adults who identify as neurodivergent, disabled or struggling with mental health. I hope to hear from you and look forward to journeying into poetry together.

Impeccable French: private classes tailored for you
Whether you'd like to sharpen your style, perfect your oral skills, prepare an exam or just start from scratch, I'd be glad to walk you through the jungle of the French language. My methods are based on listening, dialog and creativity: they adjust to match your needs, goals and interests may you be looking for help with academic French at school, conversational French, or writing tips (you name it!) You can count on lots of videos, podcasts, articles, songs, fiction and non fiction texts, photos, art pieces, social media posts, TV series, etc. as well as oral and written homemade exercises, tests, etc. to go on at your own pace with autonomy. I am there to make you feel comfortable and confident and help you reveal your linguistic and literary skills in a relaxed and playful atmosphere. Your questions, doubts and mistakes will be the engine of the classes. I studied Modern Literature and Creative Writing in Paris and I have tutored students of all ages and proficiency since 2017. I keep on learning as well with each and everyone of my students. Feel free to contact me! Thank you! Noémie

Ryan
Undergraduate Psychology Tutoring from a Russell Group Teaching Associate
I am an experienced Psychology tutor, with a doctorate in Psychology, and teaching experience since 2015 across two Russell Group universities. Through Apprentus, I offer: - One-to-one tutorials across a wide range of topics in undergraduate psychology. - Assistance with essay and coursework writing skills. - Tutorials on how to run statistical tests and tackle practical reports. I currently teach on a research methods and statistics module, however, I have substantial experience in assigning, marking and moderating examinations, essays and research reports across many areas, including clinical psychology, developmental psychology, neuroscience, perception and statistics. This has given me a deep understanding on how to succeed across the whole spectrum of assessments in undergraduate psychology. I offer a particular focus on essay and practical report writing skills, as I am keenly aware of how integral these skills are to achieving a high grade at this level. Additionally, for anyone who is currently struggling to 'gain their footing' at university-level, we can spend time discussing exactly how to get to grips with your classes, course material, revision and assignments - "learning how to learn" is a vital building block for your university success. Psychology is a fascinatingly broad subject, and I will tailor my tutorials to suit your needs.

English classes & Proof-reading by friendly native speaker
Hello! I'm a native speaker with 10 years of experience in teaching English as a Second Language and Business English. I also offer proof-reading of essays, dissertations and business documents. My speciality is particularly with Europeans who are attempting to improve their level for commercial, educational or career reasons. A little about me: I'm Irish and recently moved back to Brussels - with my partner Filipa from Dublin and we are based in Uccle. I'm looking forward to meeting new students and can meet either in person in Brussels e.g. at ULB (University Libre de Bruxelles), or in the comfort of your home - to be discussed. As a backup online through Zoom, but much prefer in-person, as it achieves better results. Thanks and hope to hear from you soon. Kevin

Muhammad
LBS EMBA | Tutoring for Dissertation and Thesis writing for Undergrad, Masters and Doctoral level candidates in business management, interna
Any dissertation, thesis or a similar longer piece of writing comprising several thousand words requires careful planning and expert supervision. University supervisors are usually busy and meet their students only rarely. I act as the student's personal supervisor ready to help with their thesis writing whenever they need me. From the Research Proposal stage to Literature Review, Research Methodology chapter to Data collection and analysis, and Results chapter to Referencing, I guide and assist my clients/students throughout the complicated process. My teaching material always includes a blend of Harvard case studies, textbook chapters, lecture slides, audiovisual material and hands-on software practice (wherever needed). All my tutoring is highly customized to suit each client's particular needs. I also tutor Doctoral candidates studying towards a Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) qualification.
