About Me

Nice to meet you!

I'm from Boston, Massachusetts, USA. I currently live in Amsterdam where I work as a freelance designer, writer, and editor. I spend a lot of time riding around on my bike brainstorming ideas for creative projects and exploring all the wonders that this magical city has to offer.

As a former librarian it's no surprise that I love to read, learn new things, and help others achieve their own education goals.

Lotte
Tutoring and supervision English, Dutch, NT2, Literature, History, Psychology, Philosophy from primary education to MA thesis
After a turbulent career in the media, marketing and mental health care, I am now back to my roots in education. I am very knowledgeable and was an academic success, but I don't just work with HBO or WO students. I also teach classes in primary education, VMBO, MBO, HAVO and VWO. Below you will find an overview of which subjects I teach and at what level. : PO: Writing, reading, fluency, history, English. English language and literature: up to and including university thesis supervision Psychology: up to and including university thesis supervision. Philosophy: up to and including university thesis supervision Dutch: up to and including 6VWO History: up to and including 6VWO. Reading and writing skills: all levels Presentation and speaking skills: all levels Personal development: all levels. But I have more to offer my pupils than just professional knowledge. I am also educated and experienced in coaching and guidance, so I am not just a teacher, but an expert in personal development. As a therapist I know how to deal with learning or other problems of any kind. So I deliver custom work, for children as well as young people and adults What does a lesson from me look like? Well, that is always a surprise and never boring! My starting point is coaching, so I always work on a good relationship and developing or strengthening confidence in my own capacities, or Empowerment. Everything else comes after that. A lesson of mine is otherwise varied, with relatively short, but very intensive learning moments, and in between small breaks with some distraction. This could be a conversation about something else, or a joke, or an anecdote, so that you get the best out of your concentration and the material remains manageable. I also often work with music, or poems, or paintings that are related to the subject matter, then it sticks better and it is just great fun. I am very inventive and original, so with me you are drawn into an adventure every lesson!

Economics (Secondary to University levels) and English (Primary level) Tutoring
Economics classes for University level students will be based on student's needs (some suggestions: Econometrics, Microeconomics, Quantitative Economics). For school students, it can involve advanced learning or basic Economic knowledge (aligned to student's needs). English classes will involve writing and speaking practice (based on the student's existing knowledge). I tend to explain things pretty well. I always try to assign homework for further practice. Times can be discussed with me and I do accommodate students based on mutual availability.

Private lessons of French as a foreign language for all levels
Trained as a translator with five years of experience, particularly in international institutions in Europe and America, I offer French as a foreign language courses for all levels. French is my mother tongue, and, as a translator, my daily working language. My methodology will depend on the level of the pupil or the student. If the pupil or the student is a beginner, I will teach him the bases of the French language (vocabulary, pronunciation, basic grammar). If the pupil or student already has an intermediate or advanced level, I will make him progress through activities that will focus on several aspects (simple dialogues, writing, etc.). I also offer oral conversation classes for anyone who wants to express themselves in French more fluently and improve their oral comprehension of the language. I also adapt to the specific requests of pupils or students. The course can be done face-to-face at my home or by videoconference (Skype, Teams, Zoom, WhatsApp, etc.)

Mimi
English Conversation Elementary and Pre-Intermediate in Breda / English Conversation Intermediate
English Conversation lessons focus on improving your speaking skills. In the lessons different topics will be discussed and debated in an interactive way. This way you can improve your English fluency or vocabulary. You will have the chance to practice English with an experienced and qualified teacher.To join me you don't need anything but your presence! I am an experienced teacher and I speak four languages. I hold a bachelor's degree in teaching of Italian language and Art History from Ljubljana University in Slovenia. Originally from Slovenia I have lived and worked in four different countries because of my husband's film post-production professional. Among other things I lived in London where I taught movement therapy. I moved to the Netherlands five years ago and have been learning Dutch. So I am perfectly aware of the challenges people face when they try to learn a new language as adults. I think that my personal experience can benefit others who are struggling to improve their language skills. My experiences as a teacher have given me the opportunity to interact with a variety of student populations and engage them in learning. In the Netherlands I taught Italian at Buas University - Tourism and Management and English Conversation at Gilde Baronie Apart from my teaching experience I am also a performer, illustrator and movement teacher.

Math (SAT, SAT subject tests, A level, GCSE, Calculus 1-2), Physics (SAT subject test, A level, GCSE, Fundamentals of physics), English
I help student with finding their own way of understanding the logic behind mathematics and physics. From where and how to derive formulas and work with given problems without even meeting them before. My way of teaching English is different from a standard English courses. I work more on boosting self confidence of a student, as an English speaker, rather than concentrating on grammar of the Language.

Cours en ligne. Professeur de FLE diplômée, la technologie au service de l’apprentissage.
LES TECHNOLOGIES AU SERVICE DE L'APPRENTISSAGE. Bonjour, Je m’appelle Laurie et je suis professeur de FLE indépendante, diplômée en Langues et Littératures françaises et romanes depuis 2012. J’ai cinq années d’expérience à mon actif (à l’étranger et en Belgique). J’ai créé LangMethod, méthode d’apprentissage pour les cours en ligne. Le cours inclut: -Le matériel (articles, vidéos, exercices à partir d’images et de textes, théorie grammaticale, liens vers les exercices…). J’utilise google doc, l’idéal est donc d’avoir une adresse gmail pour pouvoir y accéder. -La correction des exercices en dehors du cours (les expressions écrites sont corrigées en dehors du cours, ou avec l’élève, en fonction de ses besoins). -L’accès à une application (gratuitement) pour étudier le vocabulaire sur votre smartphone. -Une fiche de vocabulaire - prononciation - grammaire/conjugaison, envoyée après chaque cours. -Si nécessaire, un enregistrement du vocabulaire (pour les débutants). -La réalisation d’exercices en ligne et de tests à partir des fiches de vocabulaires envoyées. -De la motivation, des rires, de la bonne humeur :-) Ma méthode: -Elle est basée sur l’oral. -Pour la grammaire, j’utilise une méthode question/réponse (apprise lors d’une formation au centre CERAN). -Nous travaillons la prononciation avec la méthode verbotonal (exercices pour poser sa voix, pour la rythmique, etc.). Je te ferai même peut-être chanter! :-) -Tout passe par l’oral avant de passer par l’écrit mais je m’adapte évidemment aux besoins des élèves. -Le cours est un peu différent pour les enfants et adolescents: j’utilise des jeux interactifs et des cartes via la webcam. A bientôt! Laurie NB: Possibilité de faire une facture pour les particuliers ou les entreprises.
