Learn Dutch in one or three months - experienced coach (20 years experience) Staatsexamen NT2 trainer - inspired to teach Dutch to expats

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Qualified language coach with 20 years of experience offers intensive lessons Dutch in a small class or online.

My classes (fully Coronaproof) will start again in May 2021. We have an excellent classroom in the center of Rotterdam, near metrostation Beurs, classes (coronaproof separate tables at 1,8 meter distance, good circulation) with 5 students.

You can also chose for the online package of lessons in a comfortable way with Whereby, Teams or Zoom. Online lessons are one on one or on two maximum, for better results.

My English is fluent, as well as Portuguese and Spanish. I understand the difficulties to overcome barriers for Latin based languages and for expats in general, as I have been an expat too ..

Online lessons take 1,0 hour, once a week, during 10 weeks to reach a higher level. This is the normal speed. Live lessons are 1,5 hours, during 10 weeks to reach one level. Including exam and Certificate.

Intensive race? That's also possible in five to ten full days, I am used to give these very intensive trainings to CEOs who just arrived ... and want all lessons within 3 or 4 weeks. Based on European system A-1, A-2, B-1, B-2 and C-1

As soon as students improve their knowledge of Dutch, I always advise and coach them to do the Staatsexamen II, the only formal Certificate in this country, recognized by employers and universities.

I will try to switch to Dutch after a few lessons, to put your knowledge into practice.,

Teaching is my ultimate passion and even after 20 years, it feels like the first time and students always feel inspired to overcome the obstacles of the beginning.

I will also teach you about the Dutch social culture, this is interwoven in the course and is strongly related to the language.

About Me

Teaching is my ultimate passion and even after 19 years, it feels like the first year, except the experience makes it even better.

Born in Brazil I discovered teaching at a young age (20) and have never stopped. My mother was a teacher too and I sometimes think this is more than a profession : it is a vocation.

Because my English was not good enough my father sent me to London to study English and this language became my main passion, now it shares a place with Dutch and Portuguese. I have lived in the UK five years (London and Plymouth) and loved it.

After this British adventure, I studied Portuguese in Portugal because I had an opportunity there to work & study, which helped me a lot to learn the essence of grammar and literature, but my 19 years experience in teaching makes it complete. I strongly think one can not do one without the other.

As a teacher I try to explain the how of grammatical topics, to keep it interesting. Sometimes with for instance a historical annotation, which students love to learn too. I will also teach about our complicated social culture, this is interwoven in the course.

You will be inspired, but never bored !

Duidelijk informatief praktisch en ervaren.
Ik heb zelf voorafgaand aan een zakelijke periode in Brazilie les gehad van Marcelo, zowel in groepsverband als prive. Marcelo is ontzettend goed in het helder uitleggen van grammatica en het geven van een inkijk in de BR cultuur. Daarnaast een ontzettend fijn persoon om mee te werken. Jammer dat de lessen voorbij zijn!
Leuk en duidelijk!
Fantastic and warm teacher
Very good teacher!!!
...
Oi Tudo bem? Mijn naam is Marcelo en ik kom uit São Paulo. Ik geef Portugees en Braziliaans Portugees in Den Haag, Rotterdam Centrum en in Amsterdam. Gelukkig kan ik mijn universitaire studies en 20 jaar praktische leservaring zodanig combineren dat de lessen goed onderbouwd en stimulerend zijn. Ik heb in Brazilië en Portugal gewoond en gestudeerd, dus ben een ‘native speaker, met veel kennis van de bijbehorende cultuur. Door speling of voorziening van het lot, ben ik tweetalig. Jarenlang heb ik ook business trainingen gegeven aan twee zeer bekende taalscholen, dus ik weet hoe ik in korte tijd veel kennis kan overdragen. Dat voel je als cursist al na een paar lessen. Zakelijk Portugees of met spoed leren (binnen 10 werkdagen) is ook mogelijk. Ik heb een KvK en BTW nummer. Ik heb veel ervaring met geven van lessen per Skype of Whereby (Whereby is professioneler en Europees), al voor de crisis omdat ik ook cursisten in andere landen les geef. Bij virtuele lessen ontvangt u een transcript van de les per email, na afloop van de les. Lessen bij mij thuis (Molenlaan kwartier Rotterdam) zijn ook mogelijk met 1,8 meter afstand en goede circulatie. Gratis parkeren. Mijn lessen zijn zeer gestructureerd en stap voor stap. Daarnaast leg ik altijd het 'waarom' uit van een grammaticaal onderwerp, dat een link creëert die ook beter werkt voor het geheugen en de les interessanter maakt. Omdat ik zo resultaatgericht ben, probeer ik trainees met een zachte hand de trap naar de volle spreekvaardigheid op te helpen en mijn taak is om de lessen zo leerzaam en aantrekkelijk mogelijk te maken. Abraços (vriendelijke groeten) Marcelo.

Marthe
An enthusiastic and hard working French and English Tutor
Half German living in Brussels and having studied in an International School, I am fluent in French, English and German. I am currently doing my masters in Rotterdam at RSM and would like to offer French and/or English classes to students. I believe communicating with students in the language they would like to learn is key if they want to become confident in the language. Hence, I suggest doing skype classes or real life meetings at home or outdoors depending on your preferences and talking together will be very helpful for the student to improve in a particular language. I will also help with homework, grammar and the theoretical side of the language if desired. I have been a counsellor in summer camps in Canada where I had to teach small children aged from 5-15 English. Some of them didn't even know a single word of English when they arrived. It was very hard but we managed to get to know each other, communicate well and believe me, their English improved a lot.

Anne
Tutoring in all primary school subjects for children from 4 to 12 years!
My name is Anne, I am 23 years old and I study Educational Sciences at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam. I really enjoy tutoring children! I like to contribute to the development and learning process, but I also think it's important that children enjoy it (as far as that is possible with tutoring). I can give tutoring in all primary school subjects, we can mutually agree what, for how long and how often is needed. I live in the Rotterdam region, so this is the most convenient for tutoring. But I don't mind traveling a little further! I will then ask for travel expenses. We can agree on the time in consultation! I'm still studying so I can't indicate fixed days on which tutoring is possible! Once we have agreed on a day, I can just keep that moment free every week, so that the tutoring becomes regular. I hope I can help you! For questions you can always call / email / send a message. I would love to hear from you!
