I'm Alec, I'm 27 and I'm originally from Belgium - my native language is French.
I have a wide range of interests - you could say I'm a typical jack of all trades, really. I'm chatty, curious, open-minded, dynamic, enthusiastic ; I love discovering other cultures, as well as learning in general.
I went to university, but that hasn't taught me much about life it is rather through other people, and through outer and inner journeys that everything begins to make sense for me. I enjoy sharing new skills and leaving a positive mark wherever I go, and hopefully you and I will run into each other.
As a teacher, I like to take the time to explore your own learning style in order to foster a better learning experience. I believe my expertise helps me guide you towards better foreign language practice - it is through communication, accompanied by bits of the necessary grammar, that progress is achieved. It's important as well to stimulate your curiosity and base my courses on up-to-date, relevant topics ; I enjoy making my students work on hands-on projects (creating short videos, making short blog articles, etc.) as I believe those are activities that promote effective, real long-time learning.
The first session is usually devoted to see if we're a match - I encourage you to take a first trial session. We begin by assessing where you're at in your learning (I deal really well with beginnrs, if you are worried) ; we also take the time to get to know each other, as well as your personal goals and wishes.
If we agree to continue, I'll assemble sequences and (bite-sized) chapters to sustain incremental learning. You will receive some homework activities (and the accompanying, well-suited books) to complement the work we do over the video sessions. I want to make sure the online calls are about practicing as much as possible.
I also do on-demands requests ; just message me first (!)
