Creative writing - Poetry in English - Learn how to write beautiful poetry
In the modern world, the significance of poetry is overlooked. From Aristotle to Derrida (the range is not comprehensive), literary theory has maintained that a poem's power is measured in its affect. Throughout this course, our goal will not be to make inscrutable poetic analysis - though the first part of the lesson will be spent analysing word choice, meter, line length and spaces of an English poem written between pre-modernism and postmodernism. Rather, through our perusal of poetic form we will be able to ground our work, somewhat modestly, in the English poetic tradition. Before the first class you will send me some of your own work so I know how to build or refine aesthetic temperament. I have been writing poetry for ten years and two years ago I published a chapbook at a press with competitive standards, and I am currently working on a full-length collection. If you wish to take up poetry seriously, time is needed and an eye for detail is essential. I look forward to us broadening our aesthetic sensibilities together.

Learn Turkish language | from basic level to 16th century Turkish.
I taught Turkish to three people before. A Greek, an Arab and a German learned Turkish with me. They began to read Turkish poems and listen to songs. One of them even gives me song recommendations. You can too. You can learn language step by step. Turkish is a difficult language. I am aware. I'm not going to crush you under the grammatical walls. Step by step, I can prove how easily you can speak a language by speaking, singing, reading poetry. Let's try it.

Writing Poetry for beginners considering musicality
I teach the rhythm, sound and basic concept of poetry to beginners. The poetry medium is a short but power packed way to communicate using word dynamite. We are going to work with three different types of poetry. The concept of writing, the plan, the editing, the reading and sounding and the musicality of the poem will also be part of our classes.

Rhymes and charms: Exploring Spanish poetry through the centuries
Welcome to the Spanish Poetry course, a linguistic and literary journey specially designed for adults and young people who wish to immerse themselves in the rich poetic tradition of Spain and deepen their knowledge of peninsular literature. In this course, we will delve into the vast and varied poetic production that has flourished in the Iberian Peninsula over the centuries. From medieval songs to innovative contemporary works, we will explore the voices of the most prominent Spanish poets who have left an indelible mark on the literary history of Spain. Throughout our classes, we will closely analyze the different styles, themes and literary movements that have characterized Spanish poetry over time. From the mystery of the Romancero to the depth of baroque poetry and the passion of modernism, we will immerse ourselves in the many facets of Spanish poetry, discovering how it has evolved and transformed over the centuries. Through readings, discussions and practical exercises, participants will have the opportunity to deepen their understanding of Spanish literature and develop their skills of critical analysis and aesthetic appreciation. Additionally, intercultural and linguistic dialogue will be encouraged among students, thus enriching the learning experience and promoting a deeper and broader understanding of Spain's rich literary heritage.

Reshma
Creative Writing / Creative Writing in English and French
I studied Language Sciences and Literature in Paris, where I also did tutoring sessions for students in difficulty. I also studied Game Design and Narrative Design. Being a musician, I write song lyrics for several projects. I have been writing poetry and freelance writing for over 10 years. I am also a content creator for a French-speaking Belgian webzine; Shoot Me Again. My background in literature and linguistics helped me to have a sensitivity to language. I bring a lot of importance to the weight of the words and to the rhythm in my writings. My diverse experience has helped me build a solid background. I can teach poetry, how to write song lyrics, spontaneous writing for the Spoken Word for example but also how to structure an article, a dissertation or any other writing. I can also help you write a lore, a scenario and dialogues for a video game. Write to me to have access to a piece of my portfolio! See you soon :)

AQA GCSE English literature - Power and conflict Poetry
This class is for AQA English literature, specifically Power and Conflict Poetry that appear in GCSE English lit paper 1. Using my passion for literature, and guided by notes and essays i still have from my own GCSEs, for which i obtained a grade 9, this lesson is designed to guide the student into understanding the material presented, being able to compare between any two poems confidently, as well as being able to write a well structured and comprehensive essay that will obtain them a higher grade. Note: I will also have classes specifically for other elements of the course targeted for different sections and papers, such as An Inspector Calls and AQA English Language. If the student needs tutoring in any combination or all of these subject areas, you can still feel free to book lessons in a package and just specify what areas you want me to focus on. I am also hoping to be able to teach Romeo and Juliet and A Christmas carol, but need to go through and remake notes and refresh my understandig of these works to ensure high quality tutoring sessions, so teaching of these may be delayed. Note 2: due to circumstaces out of my control I am aiming to begin lessons in Early July, but may be able to do a few intro sessions for students who are interested.

Learning Korean Language ( K-pop / K-Drama / K-Literature)
I am a South Korean poet and actor. I currently live in the Netherlands. Last year, I taught children at a Korean language school in Eindhoven. Because I was an actor, my Korean pronunciation is very accurate and can be of great help in developing your Korean conversation skills. Also, since I am a poet, I can also teach classes on Korean literature. In the Netherlands I make a living as a musician. So, it is possible to take classes to learn Korean while learning K-pop. I express my gratitude to all of you who love the Korean language and love Korea, and I will be ready to experience the beauty of the Korean language with you and actively help you!

Learn to write and recite Poetry / Spoken word!
Spoken word is a performing art between poetry and performance, leaving reason behind and discovering your creativity. I would love to teach you how to write poetry and spoken word pieces. First of all, we zoom in on the content: how do you translate your experiences, opinions, stories to paper, how do you go from idea to piece, and which writing techniques help you write? And we mainly get to work with fun assignments. From the content point of view, we then look at performance: how do you recite a piece, and how does it support what you want to say.
