About Me

I'm a language geek. I'm currently in the process of learning Turkish which is the 8th language I'm trying to tackle. So I know very well how challenging learning a new language can be, how blocked you can feel in speaking and all the other difficulties that come with learning another language. I'd like to help you overcome those challenges by helping you to feel confident and competent when speaking and using your new language. A language is more than the sum of its parts and is not just grammar, vocabulary, sentence structure, pronunciation etc. A language needs to be brought alive.

I'm quite passionate about languages and I'd love to transfer some of that passion on to you.

I'm a native Dutch speaker and a certified language teacher. I've been teaching (English and Dutch) for over 6 years in different countries. I've helped students, of different backgrounds, ages and levels prepare for official exams and have always had good results.

I have also been a language coach for refugees, when I was still living in the Netherlands.

In my approach my students are the center point around which I build a lesson plan. I don't have a fixed teaching style but I prefer to focus on the needs and learning style of each of my students. I use the first class to create an idea of what could work for you. Not everyone learns in the same way.

I firmly believe that it's very important that you as a student feel comfortable and that you're enjoying the class, it helps to familiarize you with the language you're learning. Which I think is the main goal when you're learning a new language: you have to make it your own. Not merely study it, but find a way to really connect with it. In my classes my focus is on that. So I do use grammar, but I'll try to explain it in a way that makes sense to you. And there's a big focus on conversation and natural pronunciation.

I have a lot of materials that I can share with you, so it's not necessary to buy materials or books, unless you'd really want to.
