  • Flora

    Flora

    Hello, my name is Flora and I’m half English half American, born and raised in Rome. I grew up immersed in music, as a violinist, and later became fascinated by language and began writing poetry. I attended university in the Netherlands where I studied Philosophy and completed an MA in Conflict Studies and Human Rights. These experiences led me to Kenya, where I worked as a research assistant. There, I also experienced the unbridled curiosity and imagination of children and became passionate about learning new languages and teaching English. I obtained my CELTA certificate and became an English teacher in 2019. Since then, I’ve taught in England, the Netherlands, Italy and now Belgium! It is incredibly rewarding to support and strengthen students’ growth and learning and I’m very excited to be a teacher at Kids&Us Jourdan and to be part of a creative, dynamic and engaging method of English teaching!

  • Maureen

    Maureen

    Hello! My name is Maureen. I was born in Florida (USA) and I grew up in Spain, where I studied my Bachelor ‘s degree in Education. Since I was a kid, I’ve always wanted to communicate with people speaking different languages and now, as an adult, I realize how important is to learn languages from an early age. Travelling is one of my passions and I had the chance to live in other countries such as France or Malaysia. Now in Brussels, the Kids&Us Jourdan team is giving me the opportunity to continue developing my skills by implementing a different and effective methodology. I also love dancing, reading, running, and spending time with the tiny ones. It’s amazing to see how kids learn while having fun. It’s just magic!

  • François

    François

    My name is François. I was raised trilingual as a Third Culture Kid (TCK) living my childhood and part of my adult life around the world, in particular in some English speaking countries such as the USA (New York, Washington DC & Miami) and Canada (Toronto). I have been working as an English teacher for children in Brussels since 2007 and with Kids & Us since 2018. I know first hand how effective it is to expose children to a new language, as their brains are perfectly designed to acquire such skill effortlessly. All one needs it to keep them engaged and allow them to have fun in the process. I am really seduced by the Kids & Us methodology as it really captures this special moment in a child's mental development and it is an honor (as well as a lot of fun!) for me to be one of the lucky teachers delivering this innovative pedagogical method here in Belgium at Kids & Us Jourdan.

  • Noah

    Noah

    Hello, my name is Noah and I was born and raised in San Diego, California. I moved to Belgium 3 years ago to begin my university education in audio engineering and quickly fell into teaching - first in music production and now English at Kids&Us! I took extensive courses in the United States in English literature and always had an interest in writing short stories. I've always enjoyed entertaining and spending time with children, and now at Kids&Us I have found a way to do that on a regular basis teaching them my maternal language - something I find really rewarding and fun. Things I do on the side : I make music, I like drawing (not that I'm any good), and am starting to learn how to cook.

  • Irene (coordinatrice)

    Irene (coordinatrice)

    Hello, my name is Irene and I am the coordinator of Kids&Us Jourdan. I come from Greece, but I’m bilingual in English and Greek. I studied to be an English teacher and I obtained my Master’s degree from Cardiff University in the UK. As I love researching and learning new things, I then moved on to pursuing a PhD in Critical and Cultural Studies. I have been an English teacher for 18 years now, but Kids&Us is the school where I enjoy teaching the most! I have taught with the traditional method for 2 years at Kids&Us Jourdan, where I am also a pedagogical coordinator, as well as for 4 years at Kids&Us Wemmel. I love living and teaching in Belgium, and I really enjoy travelling, reading literature and watching a good film from time to time.

  • Arielle

    Arielle

    Hello, my name is Arielle and I am so excited to be part of the Kids&Us team! I’m from the English speaking part of Canada. Recently, I’ve been living in Europe; I even decided to do my Master’s in Global Studies at Gothenburg University in Sweden. No matter what, I always returned to my passion for teaching English, which I did in Spain, Sweden and now, Belgium. After helping at the Kids&Us summer camp, I saw how the methodology really works and how much fun it is. I’m grateful that I can be a part of a student’s learning experience throughout the year. In my spare time I love to dance! If there is an opportunity to dress up, I am the first one to be in full costume, holding silly props and wearing makeup. It is so much fun to play a character and explore your limitless creativity!

  • Alex

    Alex

    Hello! My name is Alexandre, but you can call me Alex. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Translation and Interpretation in English, Russian and Chinese, and I am currently following a master’s degree in professional interpretation in English and Russian. I discovered Kids&Us Jourdan 3 years ago and have been teaching there ever since, deeply convinced that the teaching method is very effective, as it replicates the way one learns his mother tongue. On top of that, I have always loved both languages and teaching, and working here allows me to combine these passions, which I wish to pass on to children. Kids&Us offers the opportunity for children to learn English while having fun, and I am glad to be a part of that important process.

    Hello, my name is Zula and I'm from Poland. I've studied developemental psychology and English language in France and Belgium. I've always wanted to work with kids and am very happy to enjoy my 3rd year as a teacher at Kids&Us. Thanks to our unique method I'm able to work and teach kids and babies of all ages, to see them grow, learn and develop their linguistical skills. My approach as a teacher is simple: I try to create a welcoming and positive atmosphere for the kids and make them fall in love with English and the idea of learning and discovering more each lesson.

  • Vincent

    Vincent

    Après avoir travaillé douze ans dans le secteur financier tant en Belgique qu’à l’étranger et passé cinq années en Chine, lors de mon retour en Belgique en 2013, un ami d’enfance m’a contacté pour me parler d’un projet qu’il a lancé en 2012 en Belgique, à savoir Kids&Us. Il me propose de donner un coup de main de temps à autres. Très vite, je suis non seulement séduit mais aussi convaincu par l’efficacité de la méthode d’enseignement de l’anglais par Kids&Us dès le premier âge. J’ai eu la chance de pouvoir ouvrir l’école Kids&Us de Wemmel en 2014 et de participer à plusieurs projets du groupe. En 2017, j’ai décidé d’ouvrir un centre Kids&Us à Etterbeek. Ce travail est très riche en contacts avec les enfants, les parents et les professeurs. C’est également un projet épanouissant, porteur et plein de sens. En effet, ayant beaucoup voyagé, vécu à l’étranger, je suis conscient de l’importance des langues dans le monde actuel. Alors quelle joie que de pouvoir donner cette possibilité aux parents et à leurs enfants dans un super environnement et avec une méthode qui a fait ses preuves et continue de se développer depuis 15 ans déjà.
