Dynamic Dutch courses with a smiling native speaker ;-)

I use several methods which are specially conceived to teach Dutch to people who have a different mother tongue. I really like to use methods out of the ordinary like role games or methods with which you learn while playing. All these adapted to the student's situation of course. As I learned myself a couple of other languages, it is easy for me to detect difficulties a student can encounter and adapt the way of learning. I can teach in English, French, German and Russian.

About Me

Hello, my name is Marcel, I am Dutch and I love languages. I really enjoy teaching languages or practicing them either by speaking, reading or writing. I have lived in several different European countries and have met a lot of different people with different accents. I learned French in France, but now I've been living in Brussels for 20 years. Today I speak French fluently, but it didn't happen overnight, so I know the difficulties of learning another language. I am married and a father of two children (14 and 11) whom I educate in Dutch. As they grow up in a predominantly French-speaking environment, I see and work with them the problems they encounter. I also take Russian lessons (so I know what it's like to be a student). I can teach in French, English, German, Russian and of course in Dutch :-) Looking forward to meeting you!

Education

I studied in the Netherlands where I lived until I had the of 23. I did the equivalent of a graduate in tourism there - for two years I have been training as a coach.

Experience / Qualifications

30 years of experience learning and speaking other languages - trying to improve them. 10 years of experience as a language teacher

Reviews (28)

Hello to everyone! So far, I have taken almost a year of Dutch lessons with Marcel. Having already taken private lessons in other areas, I can attest to the quality of his approach. Learning languages is not easy for me, I feel a certain pressure and create a lot of obstacles for myself. Having listened carefully to my expectations and my limits, Marcel was able to give a form to his course which made it interesting, fun and light enough for me to really enjoy coming. I feel that my uniqueness is taken into account. Great kindness and good humor complete the picture. I highly recommend it !!

Marcel is an excellent tutor. He is competent and flexible to meet students' language needs. He has been patient with a friendly demeanor as I stumble through French conversation, encouraging me to speak fluently and without reservation as well as giving needed constructive feedback. I highly recommend Marcel for French language tutoring.
Marcel conducts well-organized lessons and customizes the course according to my preferences. I thoroughly enjoy our conversations in Dutch. Thank you!
My son (14 years old) really enjoys the lessons with Marcel. He goes there with pleasure and finds the explanations clear. Marcel is positive and encouraging, it's a great way to learn.

I like to use different methods to teach French to students. It can be through songs, drama, role play or videos. I also very often use situations close to the student's experience, such as describing places they have been or talking about what they have experienced. At the same time, I teach the grammar rules to the student. I now live in regions where French has been spoken for over 30 years. Because I have learned French myself (and I am still learning other languages), I can easily put myself in a student's shoes. I can teach in French, Dutch, English, German and Russian.

Private lessons in English - French - Dutch - Chemistry. Help with homework and schedule achievements.
Student at the IHECS in 3rd. I was at the Athénée Robert Catteau until Secondary IV, and then at the Athénée Adolphe Max where I obtained my CESS in Languages-Economics. In my free time, I can help your children study and do their homework in a good mood, while remaining serious! I am open and patient but sometimes maybe a bit too perfectionist ... I have many tools like grammatical aids, my old lessons, books to learn a language (Headway, Choices, Tandem, ...). Do not hesitate to contact me!

Dutch for all levels, situations. Complete immersion.
Each class is tailored to the individual's requirements and/or needs. Want to improve career opportunities; learn or improve business Dutch, which will be the focus of each class. For those already are familiar with Dutch; expanding existing knowledge together with a deeper cultural understanding and insight. All students will be provided lesson schedules in advance for their review (time permitting). The main focus is on total immersion in a fun and comprehensible way, without omitting important aspects such as grammar, etc. SOME REVIEWS: Chevaan: Catherina is without a doubt THE best tutor we know. She is exceptionally committed and is always looking to inspire her students. She has consistently gone above and beyond the call of duty to help our son with his German. She provides excellent study material, engaging homework and follows up to ensure that her students have really grasped the subject matter. Brian: Catharina has been teaching our 11 year old daughter for the past few months and we are very impressed with her excellent progress in this short space of time. Catharina has developed a very good rapport with our daughter and is patient and knowledgeable. Our daughter always looks forward to her next lesson and even hands in her homework on time! We would highly recommend Catharina to anyone who would like to learn a new language. Afeisha: Very professional, friendly and informative. I feel like Catharina will help me to reach where I need to. She doesn't just teach from the book, she teaches in a way that will allow you to blend in with ease. I am excited to learn more from her. Egle: Great tutor! Catharina adapts lessons to ones needs, gives very clear explanations and most importantly works on the pronunciation of the language. With every lesson she provides lesson material.

Carola
Dutch conversation for kids and adults, to read, to write and understand the language.
In our class we will be relaxed, I will help you with the Dutch conversation, the grammar, reading (like an article or a topic what I will give you). I will help students for beginners-lower-intermediate level. After every lesson I will give you homework for the next lesson. Between the two lessons you can always ask me a question about the subject what we’ve discussed. If you have a subject what you’d like to learn about the Dutch language, let me know. I’m looking forward to see you in my class.

Astrid
Dutch lessons for young professionals as well as academic/university support
Dutch is my mother tongue, I am Dutch and I suggest you improve your level of Dutch by focusing on conversation - pronunciation - learning to express yourself well - convincing shyness to speak. Of course also academic support - explanation of grammar - reading and understanding texts - writing and editing. Preparing for job interviews, raising the level of Dutch for professional use to a higher level, working with university students to prepare for their Dutch exams etc etc. I adapt my lessons to the needs of each student. With advanced students we discuss the news based on newspaper articles. I speak fluent French, English, and Italian. I am a lawyer by training with 30 years of experience in international business. The ultimate goal of my lessons: to love Dutch and prepare for your future!

Carolina
Dutch lessons for adults, teenagers and children, fully adapted to the needs of a student!
Hello everyone, in my class it is first of all important that the student feels comfortable! We will therefore first get to know each other better and you as a student can then tell me what you expect/want in a lesson, or what you specifically need. From there we draw up a schedule and step by step ensure that you as a student master the Dutch language. Some of you will come to me because it is necessary, for example an integration exam, some of you will come because they are going to work temporarily in the Netherlands, others enjoy it as a hobby and others come to the Netherlands for love... There are so many reasons! My classes are tailored to your wishes so that you will feel truly comfortable. From young to adult students, I enjoy teaching all over the world. I hope to have made you curious and to meet and welcome you in my class :)

Irma
