Teaching Qualifications and Experience
We offer foreign students One-to-One tuition at all levels, including university and business level. After working some twelve years with international companies in Brussels, where languages were a must, I have been working independently since 1987 and was joined by my partner in 1990. Together we have developed methods adapted to each person’s specific needs, enabling us to help students progress rapidly and meet deadlines. I teach French, English and Dutch whereas Bertrand teaches all scientific subjects, maths and French. Thanks to our commercial background we also teach accountancy, statistics, EDP and economics. Local customers include international companies established in Belgium. With dual nationality, I have been speaking English, French and Dutch ever since I was a child. Besides his native French, Bertrand is fluent in English, including technical English.
Hobbies and Interests

Excursions and Local Attractions
Bruges, Brussels, Antwerp, Ghent, the Ardennes, and the Belgian coast. Some of the local museums, such as the Royal Mariemont Museum and the Seneffe Castle, are also well worth a visit and draw tourists from all over Belgium and from abroad.
