About Me

I am a 39-year-old Dutch and Frisian native tutor. I would love to help you learn the Dutch language, customs, and culture.

In the first 32 years of my life, I was in The Netherlands where I have been teaching, training, and mentoring written and spoken Dutch to all skill levels.

In the past 7 years, I have been living throughout Europe. Whilst enriching my general cultural knowledge, I have had the pleasure of having students from many different backgrounds from all over the globe.

Please share with me, for which purpose would you like to learn Dutch(or Frisian)? I am more than happy to create a lesson plan with you based on your goals and current skill level.

I hope to talk with you soon, for now, have a great day. :-)
