Learning Skills for Academic, Professional and Personal Success

Learning can be fun! Did you know your brain CRAVES and does it anyway, on autopilot, 24/7? How is it, then, that for so many people learning seems like a tedious chore or a very difficult thing to do? Why do we often feel "stupid" or "untalented"?

That's simply because the way we are commonly taught and expected to study at school, university or on vocational training is NOT in alignment with the natural functionality and needs of the human brain, our mind in a broader sense, or more holistically, our entire personality.

So what can we do about that? How can we process and retain information, gain knowledge and at the same time, develop our personality, learn vital life skills, become successful, healthy and happy?

Here's the good news: Genius is common! You "simply" need to rekindle your innate curiosity, playfulness, creativity, problem solving abilities and inner wisdom. You've got this! All you need is the right information and someone who believes in you, guides and supports your progress.

That's what I can do for you.
I will
* teach you the theory behind all learning (mainly neurosciences and psychology) if and when desired, so you can understand how the human mind really works, what the conditions for learning are and how you can create them,
* give you a wide range of easy, mix-and-match tools that will support any learning, no matter the subject or level,
* hold you accountable, track your progress & cheer you on,
* help you apply the information (practise transfer), based on your individual circumstances (the WHY, WHAT and HOW of your learning),
* all this in a fun, engaging and simple way that will not only get you maximum results with minimum effort, but will also be something you're going to enjoy and look forward to!

My unique approach will help you with all of the following:
* problem solving
* critical/lateral thinking
* creativity
* memory
* focus & motivation
* logic & reasoning
* presentation skills
* communication and other social skills
* mental health and wellbeing

It can also be used as a complementary program for people in difficult circumstances (including survivors), life transitions, after trauma or during severe/chronic illness, for career advancement (like landing your dream job or creating your own business), for dementia prevention or simply to keep mentally fit and happy at any age.

My courses are 100% client centred, which means the curriculum can and will be adapted to the needs, preferences and unique situation of the individual or group I'm teaching. All content is modular, so you can literally "pick your own adventure" and work exactly at the pace and in the order that suits you best. I am committed to your success and provide outstanding, highly personalized support even between lessons. I'm also very flexible with times and settings, however I expect and require students to follow through once a commitment has been made.

Extra information

Bespoke arrangements (content, number and duration of lessons, times and setting etc.) available. I am also open to teaching groups (at a discount) and to giving presentations or workshops (for all types of organisations, businesses, charities, schools, etc.).

About Me

I would describe myself, amongst other attributes, as
* fun and easy-going, but seriously nerdy ;)
* widely interested and always keen to learn new things
* absolutely book-addicted
* amateur violinist (self-taught) and greatest fan of Beethoven
* nature lover & cat person

I could be classified as a "survivor" (have experienced all kinds of trauma), but don't self-identify as such anymore because I refuse to be defined (and held back) by what happened in the past. However, my story is at the core of my desire and passion to educate and help others. Learning has saved my life and can also help you to find purpose, fulfilment, success and happiness no matter your circumstances!

I have a bias towards "weirdos" or non-conformists, independent thinkers and free spirits, so these would be my preferred students. However, I have a talent for seeing the good, the untapped potential, and the genius in (mostly) everyone and consider myself a sort of "midwife" for the mind & soul.


* studied Education (major), Psychology & Philosophy (minor) at TU Dresden, Germany and FernUni Hagen, Germany
* certified Women's Project Manager
* various trainings in Life Coaching, NLP, Hypnotherapy, and Business
* extensively self-taught (I read at least one non-fiction book per week, usually more)

Experience / Qualifications

Develop conflict management and negotiation skills by alternating attentive listening, active speaking and rationality in the face of the limited rationality of the angry individual. Statistically, the progression following these private sessions is quickly noticeable, from 2 or 3 sessions *. (* study 2020) Postgraduate School Training & Ivy league college in the United States, our teacher has specialized and worked for over 13 years, in Europe and North America, in the field of communication and public speaking in renowned public and private international institutions, involved in forums and conferences, and focused on two areas: training and coaching, with the key words pedagogy and careful methodology. PLACES : - Locations: Geneva-Lausanne-Friborg-Neuchâtel-Montreux-Bâle-Sion-Sierre-Morges-Bienne. But currently, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid. These sessions also seem to be perfectly unanimous since they have the advantages of direct (example: quality of the interaction), without its disadvantages (ex: loss of travel time), with additional advantages (ex: of notes on the chat, which can be reread afterwards). In this context, these videoconference sessions for which you have requested me, seem to arouse a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). At your request, I therefore continue to offer them.

///Life Coach/// Lig je in de knoop met jezelf, zie je het allemaal even niet meer helder? Contacteer ons en we gaan samen op zoek.
Je bent mentaal wel gezond, maar je voelt dat je ergens vastloopt in je leven. Je krijgt het even allemaal niet meer geregeld, je hebt nood aan verheldering of je moet knopen doorhakken, maar je durft niet goed of weet niet waar beginnen. Dan kan ik aan de hand van bestaande coaching-methodes en technieken, maar in de eerste plaats vanuit een menselijkheid en een nuchtere kijk op het leven naast je staan om je de nodige tools aan te reiken die jij op dit moment nodig hebt om terug verder te geraken in je leven. Je kan hier terecht voor allerlei problematieken zoals onder andere: - stress en burnout - studiekeuze - werkgerelateerde problematieken - time-management - levensdoel zoeken - gezins- en relatieproblemen - scheiding - je kind(eren) in een vechtscheiding - onbalans tussen draagkracht en draaglast - opvoeding - financiën - faalangst en/of uitstelgedrag - ... Voordat we starten met de sessies krijg je een algemene vragenlijst doorgestuurd die je me ingevuld terugstuurt. Zodra ik deze terug heb ontvangen ben je welkom voor een intake-gesprek van ongeveer een half uurtje waarna ik bekijk of ik je al dan niet verder kan helpen. (Indien nodig verwijs ik je graag door naar de juiste instantie(s) waar jij voor jouw persoonlijke problematiek wel terecht zou kunnen.) Na het intake-gesprek kunnen we reeds aansluitend starten met een eerste sessie. Afhankelijk van de aard en de intensiteit van je probleem kan het zijn dat je met een enkele sessie voldoende hebt om reeds verder te kunnen, of kan het zijn dat je gedurende langere tijd op regelmatige basis komt om je doel te bereiken. Wie ben ik? Mijn naam is Carlo en ik ben vader van twee prachtige zonen. Van beroep ben ik jazzmuzikant en life coach. Daarnaast organiseer ik samen met mijn verloofde huisconcerten en geef ik privé muzieklessen in ons eigen huisje. Mijn leven is de laatste vijf jaren zeer turbulent geweest. Hierdoor ben ik mezelf heel hard tegengekomen, wat erg moeilijk was, maar tegelijkertijd heeft dit mij ook sterker gemaakt. Door middel van Kung Fu, muziek en het veel lezen van boeken probeerde ik aan mezelf te werken om er op die manier terug te staan. Vanuit deze ervaring ben ik mij gaan verdiepen in het "mens zijn" en het menselijk psyche en besloot ik een opleiding tot life coach te volgen. Als docent aan de Hogeschool Zuyd in de opleiding muziek heb ik steeds mijn studenten begeleid doorheen hun jonge jaren. Ik vond het van belang om niet enkel muziek-technisch iets aan te brengen, maar om voor hen klaar te staan als mens, als mentor en als vertrouwenspersoon. Dit sluit goed aan bij mijn opleiding als life coach. Daarenboven ben ik aanvankelijk muzikant geworden om mensen gelukkig te maken en de afgelopen turbulente jaren hebben mij doen inzien dat ik dit eigenlijk ook op andere manieren kan dan enkel met muziek. Zoals reeds gezegd hebben we in ons huis een privé-muziekschooltje waar we ook huisconcerten organiseren, maar we zien dit meer als een inloophuis waar mensen met muzikale problemen, maar ook met andere persoonlijke issues terecht kunnen. Ik zie mezelf als volgt: 'Public service creating happiness and wellbeing for body, mind and spirit' Deze zin omvat de manier waarop ik een publieke instelling wil zijn, waar we de drie elementen body, mind en spirit op een rij kunnen zetten en zo naar een balans kunnen zoeken in de problematiek. Ik kijk er naar uit om ook jouw verhaal mee te schrijven!

Voulez-vous parler la langue de Molière avec fluidité ? N'hésitez pas à me contacter !
Salut, avant tout je me présente. Je me nomme Majda, une jeune fille marocaine, assistante de conversation française à Barcelone, puis à Madrid. D'ailleurs, j'avais suivi mes études supérieures à l'Université Ibn Tofail (au Maroc), et après avoir eu en fin de cursus un diplôme de la licence fondamentale du département de langue et littérature françaises, option linguistique, j'ai pu commencer mon stage d'assistanat à l'étranger (en Espagne). En effet, j'enseigne mes cours de français aux étudiants qui ont une volonté de réussir et qui s'intéressent à apprendre petit à petit les bases de la langue, pour pouvoir par la suite les utiliser au cours d'une très vive conversation.

Kickstart your Korean! 1 to 1 tutoring online or in-person
여러분, 안녕하세요? 🇰🇷 Do you want to start learning Korean and do you want to do it in an organised way? 🇰🇷 Did you already get started on learning but you got stuck on a particular grammar? 🇰🇷 Are you aiming for a TOPIK 1-2 language exam and do you want to get prepared in as short and effective a time as possible? As a language tutor with over 10 years of didactic experience and a TOPIK level 5 language exam, I can help you overcome difficulties and reach your goals. My love with Korean language and culture started more than 10 years ago thanks to my amazing Korean friends that I made during my first exchange year in Japan. Fast forward to 2016, I spent one semester in Korea as part of my individual research trip abroad to collect materials for my PhD which later turned into another semester of working holiday as an English tutor. This year spent in Korea was my real motivation to start learning the language properly so that I could connect more to the locals. For me this was a very enjoyable, but at the same time challenging process. As a result, I can completely relate to your struggles. That is why I like to make sure that I teach my students in the way that I wish I had learned when I was a beginner. I can assist you with grammar, pronunciation, and script (but also hanja and cultural notes) up to a TOPIK level 1-2. If you have a favourite vlogger, comedian or song that you want to translate in class, that is also no problem: my classes are very open to your input to turn your progress into a really personal experience.
