About Me

Hi!:)
I am a young university student in Amsterdam and have lived in the Netherlands for the last three years. Originally I am German/Namibian, which is why both German and English are my native languages! I have however lived in many different countries, including Namibia, Malawi, Germany and The Netherlands.
I greatly enjoy interacting with people, and am considered a very kind and open person. Some of my hobbies include dancing, painting and basketball. I am curious about anything and everything, but I am currently studying international politics as that was what caught my attention the most :)
I look forward to helping you on your journey to learn the English or German language!

Education

University of Amsterdam: MSc in Conflict Resolution and Governance
Leiden University (Campus Den Haag): Bachelor of Science in International Relations and Organisations (Graduating in 2021)
W. Gymnasium Tübingen (Germany): Abitur (2017)

Experience / Qualifications

I have spent the better part of the last five years tutoring students in all sorts of fields (Maths, English, German, Biology etc.) and have always helped them achieve their goals with maximum satisfaction!

Saniah is really fantastic - my son (14.5 yrs) and I enrolled for '1-1' classes with her, mainly to improve our conversational fluency/ease (our main focus right now), and from even the first few minutes we immediately were at ease, feeling relaxed and open in trying and warming up our German. Saniah kept us challenged, yet not at a frustrating level, and thus very engaged, and was patient in correcting us and helping us to explore the interesting conversations that came up over the two hours of the lesson. Saniah is a very well informed and thoughtful person, with an international and well-travelled background, and we managed to cover a lot of ground exploring interesting and current topics; she also gave us great German book/movie recommendations, plus followed up with adding extra vocab lists and assignments if we wished. We have had only one lesson so far, but are very much looking forward to the next one - certainly exceeded expectations and very happy with the outcome.
Saniah is a very sweet and patient tutor. She is fun to learn with and really puts in the energy and time to make the student experience as best as possible. Definitely worth every cent and more, recommend 100%.
German is a language which, while spoken in comparatively few countries, is an immense asset to any person looking to live or work in another country at some point in their lives. While it has the reputation of being a cold and difficult language, I strongly believe that there are many beautiful things about it and encourage anyone with a bit of interest to try and learn it! As such, I offer private tutoring sessions for any level of German, and in any form: they can be one on one, or you can contact me with a friend or a group! Depending on your goals, the class will be tailored to focus on achieving them: if you need to practice speaking, writing, reading - that's what we will do!
With our world growing to be more connected by the day, English has become an essential language in all areas of life. Whether you wish to find a job, travel or simply consume news, English is an asset. I offer individual tutoring sessions or classes in small groups, as preferred by the students. The lessons will be tailored to your personal goals: do you want to learn the basics? Do you need someone to practice speaking with? Or would you like to improve your writing skills (academic or otherwise)? Anything can be arranged!
Whether you have decided to pick up a new hobby during the COVID-19 induced lockdowns or you have just always been curious about picking up a new skill, painting is a liberating way to get creative! I strongly believe that painting (and art in general) should be about the expression of yourself, in whatever way you feel like. However, a few tips and tricks to get you started and aide your artistic journey may go a long way! Thus this class is for anyone interested in getting to know the basics of painting: what materials should you use? How do you mix paints and colours to get a desired outcome? And for those struggling to decide on an object, an answer to 'what should I even paint?!' As this is a very creative and subjective topic, the classes are tailored to the students' needs and wishes - so if you know nothing about painting, don't worry, we'll get you up to speed in no time!

Schrijfcoach - krijg hulp bij het schrijven van creatieve, pakkende, inspirerende teksten // Coach for creative writing
ENGLISH BELOW Ik help je graag met het starten met schrijven en/of het verbeteren van je vaardigheden! Of je nu zoekt naar een coach die je begeleidt in en feedback geeft op blogs, columns, korte verhalen, fictie of non-fictie - ik stort me er graag op. Zelf ben ik voornamelijk werkzaam als schrijver van theaterteksten, maar ik heb ook ervaring met het schrijven van liedteksten, literaire vertalingen, essays etc.. Alle teksten benader ik dus vanuit een creatieve insteek en artistieke visie. Als theaterauteur houd ik me ook bezig met hoe een tekst klinkt - klinkt het niet prettig, dan kan hij vast beter geschreven worden. Als coach richt ik me vooral op het geven van feedback op de teksten die je schrijft en help ik je graag op weg met opdrachten om te beginnen met schrijven en/of om het gevreesde writersblock af te schudden. Vind je het fijner om meer stil te staan bij theorie rond het schrijven, dan help ik je daar natuurlijk ook graag bij. /// As a writer (mainly playwriting, but also songs, columns, literary translations and essays) I'm very interested in helping you either to start writing, or to better your writing. We'll work mostly by practicing and discussing your work. If you prefer to zoom in on theoretics, I'm happy to guide you in that as well. I'm a professional playwriter and dramaturg (and studied at LUCA School of Arts with Nico Boon, Freek Mariën and Nathan Vecht). I previously taught playwriting in different groups (CREA, Buitenkunst) and work as a scriptadvisor for professional theatre makers. Besides that, I often help people in writing resumes, papers and thesis papers.

Learn Dutch as a second language adapted to your needs!
I am a very experienced teacher in Dutch as a second language. I love working with people from other countries because it widens my view and apart from teaching you a new language, I will learn from you about new cultures. For me, learning a new language is first of all learning to get around in daily life. So, a beginners course will always start with this basic information: introducing yourself; making appointments with the dentist, hairdresser, and so on; shopping; going to a restaurant; etc. On an intermediate level, we will work on your speaking skills: having a conversation with your colleagues about your weekend, reading a newspaper article and talk about it; talking about your hobbies, etc. With advanced students we can work on whatever field they need; for example work or other things that are important for you.
