About Me

My name is Teuntje. I am from the Netherlands, but located in the UK. I have over 5 years of experience teaching languages such as Dutch or English at schools, tutoring companies, and online. For me, interaction with my students and really listening to their prefered ways of learning is essential. Cliché as it may be; we are in this together. We will always have a dialogue during class: are you keeping up? what do you think? And we'll go through some exercises together so it doesn't turn into a dry lecture. I love languages and the funny things they do (the English word 'acorn' and the Dutch word 'eekhoorn' sound the exact same. But 'eekhoorn' doesn't mean 'acorn', but 'squirrel'. And squirrels LOVE acorns. That cannot be a coincidence. But I'm getting off topic.). My point being, we'll make it as interesting as we can.
