    Philosophy, History, Literature, Theology/ Religious Studies, Ukulele,

    MA student with too much information in his head who loves breaking it down into digestible chunks. My class is for the people who 'don't get it' and want it explained simply and accessibly. My classes give students their own understanding of the content with which to confidently approach their exams.

    I received a 1st in Philosophy and Theology at bachelors level from the University of Nottingham. I am currently studying philosophy at King's College London.

    Able to run classes on these topics in each field:

    Philosophy: Philosophy of Religion, Ethics, Political Philosophy, Metaphysics, Philosophy of Mind.

    History: Tudor England, Elizabethan England, Reformation Europe.

    Theology/Religious studies: Islam, Christianity, Buddhism.

    Literature: WW1 literature, Existentialist Literature, Othello. Great Gatsby, A View from the Bridge, Pride and Prejudice.

    Have been playing the Ukulele for 8 years and so can help students gain competency in the instrument - have access to a lot of material.

    Also have been learning Arabic for 4 years and can help beginners get set up.

    University classes (psychology, philosophy, pedagogy, linguistics)
    I graduated from the University of Athens where I attended courses in pedagogics, psychology, philosophy and linguistics. What can I teach? - I can prepare you for exams in pedagogics, psychology, philosophy, linguistics. - Psychology (developmental / school / clinical / social) - Philosophy (mainly ancient philosophy, e.g. Socrates, Plato, Aristotle) - Linguistics / phonology / grammar / syntax During my lessons I use : - Skype/Whatsapp/Messenger to connect with you, - Google Docs to keep notes, which you can check at any time and they are yours to keep, - sketch board me to make mind maps/diagrams to show connections between ideas, etc. I adore my profession and desire each and every one of my students be satisfied with the lesson. That's why I make sure the atmosphere is stress-free and nice. I also want my lessons to be as effective as possible. Therefore, I make sure they are well-prepared, although they can be altered at any point, should such an opportunity arise. I like explaining things in a variety of ways as well as make use of dictionaries, diagrams, etc. When it comes to students who want to obtain certificates, I am very demanding.

    Ukulele lessons in Brussels. Begin your musical journey today with the ukulele. You're not too old or too young to play this instrument.
    Learn ukulele with me in Brussels. The ukulele's small size, lightweight, and strings that are easy to press down make this instrument one of the easiest to play. Learning to play the ukulele can deliver huge benefits including improved memory, coordination, and stress relief to everyone ranging from small children to seniors. The ukulele is also one of the easiest stringed instruments to learn to play, making it an excellent stepping stone for other stringed instruments like guitar.

    Christianity for Dummies: History, Message, Currents
    Christianity, this famous faith so little known, approached from different angles but, ultimately, is never really identified. What does this faith evoke, the world's first growing? How did it go on, 2000 years later? What was the real message of Jesus Christ of Nazareth? Why is it still fascinating nowadays? This course is for all those asking real questions about this unrecognized faith (whatever exposed), people eager to learn more without wanting to be fooled by what can say wikipedia, pro-Christians or against! My goal is in no way to teach catechism classes or to make propaganda against or for.

    Guitar lessons - all styles - in Ottignies and around
    - About the course-- My method is to work the technique and the musicality at the beginning of the tastes of the student so that the objectives are always stimulating. I try to develop as quickly as possible to the students, that is to say to make them able to target their own difficulties and to invent the exercises to solve them. --About me-- I am a guitar teacher for over 15 years, privately, music school (Kraainem, Waterloo, Enghien) and internship (AKDT). I started the guitar 25 years ago and have never stopped. I went through all styles: from classical to pop songs and then to electric guitar: blues, rock and then jazz (with Frankie Rose). Later, I developed flamenco (with Karim Baggili), Brazilian (with Osman Martins), gypsy music and Eastern European music (with Tcha Limberger). I am also versed in gypsy jazz. I can give classes of any level and any style. I give the theory in parallel of what is worked so that it enters in a passive way. I have experience with children as well as adults. I also teach electric bass and ukulele.

    Private lessons in math, history / geography and high school philosophy
    I always adapt to the student I have. I try to understand its shortcomings and work to the maximum while consolidating its strengths. I work mostly with exercises that allow the student to face difficulties and we discuss together how best to respond to this. My horraires can be flexible depending on what you are looking for.

For English, History and Social Science I can tutor in Advanced level classes For French I can tutor in beginner and intermediate level classes.

    To progress in French and in philosophy with a professional of the particular course (more than 10 years of experience at your service!)
    Presentation : Already a twelfth grade in private class ... It is completely by chance that I started in this activity at the exit of the college, not wishing to pass the CAPES immediately and finally, I found the job that suits me in every way. Each new student is a new adventure: human, cultural, psychological. The private lesson is a space of exchange where one can answer in a perfectly adapted way to the problems (sometimes to the distress ...) of a young adult in the making. After practicing in Marseille and Rennes, I live today in Finland! But I do not intend to stop my job that I always practice with passion and I'm looking for students who want to work by webcam, to complete my schedule. The advantages of the course by webcam are numerous for the student: - Relax at home in a familiar environment. - Quick exchange of documents: in my subjects, one always needs an unexpected text which invites itself according to the conversation! - Flexibility of the organization - Ludo-educational use of the web etc. CV COURSES - Since 2011: Teacher in private lessons in my account - From 2007 to 2011, Teacher Acadomia / Anacours / Completude / Legendre (2013): private lessons - From 2007 to 2011, Acadomia teacher: intensive internships (French, philosophy, methodology of high school work, orientation) - 2010: Educational consulting for Acadomia (creation of new services, analysis of teaching aids etc ...) OTHER 2018: Orthographic and syntactic corrections of the military history book "Les dragons, from the origins to 1918" by Nicolas Bretegnier and Eugène Lelièpvre, published by Epopée 2013: Orthographic and syntactic corrections of Claude-Louis Moreau's book on political philosophy "Réinvestir le politique", published by Éditions L'Harmattan, collection "contemporary issues". License of Modern Letter (AB Mention) obtained at the University of Provence in 2007 METHOD - Identification of the gaps: "anyway, I'm bad in French!" Alas, many students take their bad notes for a fatality, even for a personal judgment. They feel deprived and devalued. To return to success, it is essential to understand the reasons for the failure, and fill the gaps, little by little, but with determination! - Methodological approach of the disciplines: In French (or in philosophy), the student often thinks that there is nothing to do! The lack of working method is the first factor of failure unfortunately. Over the course of the course we will make sure to restore a working method conducive to success in the subject, and of course, we will focus on the methodology specific to each type of exercise requested (essay, comment etc.) - Content developed to develop the curiosity of the student and reconcile with the subject: without active collaboration of the student, the private lesson is vain. That's why it's important to stimulate it rather than force it to swallow. However, do not hide it from us: as in all subjects, there are boring steps (I feel a sincere compassion for high school students who are confronted with the learning and identification of text registers by example!) - Adapted and individualized teaching materials: this is one of the advantages of the private lesson! The teacher adapts and invents daily. I would not want to work myself with a support that I would have tired, anyway! - Method of work entirely based on the exchange and the putting in confidence of the pupil. The private lesson is a particular time of school life. It's not just "school after school". The pupil must face his shortcomings, must accept his errors as well as his weaknesses. In a teenager's life, it's like being laid bare. How could he do it if he does not trust the person in charge of helping him? As a teacher, I am always sincere with my students: I tell them their weaknesses, but I show them their strengths. I try to show them that a note, good or bad, is just a picture, an inventory of their knowledge of a particular subject at a given moment. It is part of my mission to show them that I do not judge them, and that I rely on facts (a copy, an exercise, a report card, etc.) to improve a situation that only requires improve! - Great experience of "Dys": over the years, word of mouth has made me more and more students "dys". Since labels are often sterile, I focus with them, as with others, on the essentials and try to distinguish between what is traditional and what is not. I would just say that the confidence and lack of judgment I mentioned above is more than crucial here! One thing is certain: a dys can do everything in French or in philosophy (and in general, in high school) despite the difficulties! Superior : Methodology of the dissertation, the structuring of a writing, the synthesis of documents, correction of memoirs and internship reports, preparation for various competitions (paramedics, business schools ...) - Follow-up of out-of-school students (medical reasons, precocity, free baccalaureate candidates, etc.)
