About Ghislaine

After 30 years of teaching English and Dutch to 11th and 12th graders in Belgium, I recently relocated to the USA.

I received both my teaching degree and my Master's in English and Dutch Literature and Linguistics from the renowned Catholic University Leuven, Belgium. During my teaching career in Belgium, I taught ESOL (general course, Business English and English for Information Technology), was Head of the English Department, and a Homeroom Teacher.

I successfully tutored students in several subjects, including: English, ESOL, Dutch and history (European and World).

I am a very patient person who will go above and beyond to help my students. I have worked with special needs students (ADD/ADHD,autism and Asperger) in a secondary school setting.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Dutch

Being born in the Dutch speaking part of Belgium, I am a native speaker of Dutch. I received my primary and secondary education in Dutch. I studied Germanic Philology (English and Dutch) at the Catholic University Louvain and earned my master's degree in both languages. I was a Dutch and English (ESOL) teacher at high school level (11th and 12th grade) in Belgium for 30 years prior to moving to the USA in April, 2014.

ESL/ESOL

I have 30 years of experience in ESL.

European History

Being Belgian, I am very knowledgeable about European history.

Literature

I have been an avid reader all my life and as a result I have read almost all the classics. I try to keep up with new publications both for adults and young adults. If you need help with a book, chances are that I have read it. If not, I am always willing to read new novels.

Proofreading

Throughout my teaching career, I have had to proofread texts on a wide variety of subjects going from science reports to business plans, from creative writing to software manuals. I am interested in all kinds of subjects and I enjoy a challenge.
