Coach - Public Speaking // Public Speaking // Public Speaking

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
ENGLISH BELOW

Do you feel insecure when speaking in front of groups? Do you feel you could have more fun speaking in front of groups? Are you afraid that the content of what you say will be lost?

Many people find it quite difficult to speak in front of groups. You may have heard the advice 'imagine everyone's in their underpants', but it didn't help (or you probably won't be reading this text).
Maybe you don't find public speaking all that difficult or scary, but you think you can get a lot more out of it.

I would like to help you become a better, more relaxed and open speaker. The coaching is completely tailored to your needs and needs, but we work, for example, on preparing, analyzing and/or writing a text, body posture and language, use of voice and empathy.

I was trained as an actress and singer, two subjects that give me a lot of baggage and inspiration when coaching public speaking. I have more than 8 years of experience as a coach and teacher.


///

I specialize in coaching individuals in how to present themselves on stage or before a group. My goal is to focus on your own specific goals and help you develop your skills. Whether you need to speak in public for work or school, or just want to get rid of stage fright before giving that wedding speech, I can help you better yourself and gain confidence!
We work on different levels: analyzing and/or writing text, performing, body language and voice.
I have a strong background in singing and acting and have been working as a teacher, coach and director for over years.

About Me

NOT AVAILABLE UNTIL OCT 2020

Hi, I`m Sietse. I`m from the Netherlands and have been living in Belgium for over 5 years now.
Besides working as an actress, singer and theatremaker, I really enjoy teaching! I especially enjoy working as a personal coach together to reach you goals.
For me teaching is not a side-job beside my artistic carreer (nor it is the other way around) I always strife to combine the two, since, in my experience, they inspire each other immensly.
As a teacher I`m patient, friendly and I love to add some humor to the classes. However, I`m very ambitious and driven. Furthermore: creating a safe environment is fundamental.

Education

Bachelor in Music (musical theatre - Conservatory of Haarlem)
Bachelor in Drama (LUCA School of Arts)
Master in Drama (LUCA School of Arts)
Different workshops and courses (like EVTS)

Experience / Qualifications

8 years of teaching experience (acting and singing classes) for both groups as well as individual coaching. Both children and adults.

Reviews (5)

Zeer aangename les.
Heel fijne eerste les!
Ik had mijn eerste les bij Sietse en ik leerde meteen enorm veel bij. Sietse hecht veel belang aan gezond gebruik van je stem en ze is enthousiast en energiek. Daarnaast past haar visie op zingen perfect bij me: kruip in je lijf, je gevoel en het verhaal dat je wilt brengen. Ik kijk al uit naar de volgende lessen!
Easy contact, Sietse is professionnal and a pleasure to work with.
Sietse is so professional. My son had such an excellent experience today. And I witnessed a dramatic change in the way he deliver a speech! We are so looking forward to our next lesson.
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.
I help you in finding confidence in singing by focussing not only on the technique of singing but also on the ´story` you are telling with the song. Being experienced in both musical theatre and acting, I love combining these two when helping you achieve your goals. I am an all-round teacher, but most of my training is in musical theatre. I love to help you with specific questions (like: how to gain the perfect posture for singing) or work on songs and tackeling obstacles we’ll come across while singing. Having fun and gaining confidence will allways be the centre of our focus.
I specialize in coaching individuals in how to present themselves on stage or before a group. My goal is to focus on your own specific goals and help you develop your skills. Whether you are a amateur actor, a singer or you need to speak in public for work, I can help you better yourself and gain confidence! We work on different levels: analyzing the text, performing, body and voice. I have a background in singing and acting and have been working as a teacher, coach and director for 8 years.

Learn ARABIC for conversation or academic purposes (proper dialect "Fusha" or a variety of other middle eastern dialects)
As a language, Arabic may seem scary, whether you hear two people speaking it with a bit of an aggressive tone, or see the terrifying Alphabet being used and written in a different direction! However! Fear not! I can assure you, i felt the same way about Dutch, and was terrified to try and articulate the words and their meanings. However, after a year of going through a successful active learning course (which our classes will follow a similiar method to), and enough practice, i could confidently say i can hold my grounds, with the fear of the Dutch language being at bay ! In my 2 years of teaching experience, without the "over-use" of "English or other" languages and starting right from the beginning with Arabic, some students and friends of mine were able to speak Arabic with me, in addition to writing full essays, and even understood the general grammatical structure of the language, all of which took no more than a couple of months. However, it is necessary to keep in mind that Arabic is the second toughest language to learn after Chinese "Mandrin", meaning that expectations should be kept realistic, with time and practice being key.A year should suffice someone to be able to claim that they are at a "A1-B2" LEVEL, which is almost in the intermediate Zone. For our classes, THREE TYPES or METHODS could be chosen from: 1- The active learning extensive Method 2- The "school" Method 3- The "specific university subject tutoring" Method. 1- For the first and second methods, i will usually devise a specialized text book (Word/PDF, no need to hurt trees and print...) which will include all that we need throughout the course from necessary readings, literature, and grammar of the language. this book will be modified accordingly to the purpose of learning the language that you could clarify to me beforehand (whether academic in a specific field of science, or any other purposes...) 2- However, if your goal is purely conversation, and does not include learning proper Arabic (Fusha), the method of teaching differs a little. Here only the "school method" applies. Let me elaborate: In schools, we are taught to read and write "MUM, DAD" before we learn our ABCs, Thus "conversation" will be the main focus, accompanied by brief and on the surface piecing of the principles of the grammar, punctuation, and other related aspects whenever a new one is at hand. 3-Finally, if you are studying any of the Arts or Majors in University, and you need specific help concerning Arabic Subjects (Ba. Master. PHD levels), specific short classes, through the third method, will be offered, and through which we can: answer all your question, explain anything that you are having trouble with, and specific help that could also be offered according to your needs.
