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.

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.

I had my first lesson with Sietse and I immediately learned a lot. Sietse attaches great importance to healthy use of your voice and she is enthusiastic and energetic. In addition, her vision on singing suits me perfectly: get into your body, your feelings and the story you want to convey. I'm already looking forward to the next lessons!

Easy contact, Sietse is professionnal and a pleasure to work with.

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.
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.
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.

English Creative Writing, Speech and Innovative Presentation Skills
Greetings! I am currently pursuing a Masters course at KU Leuven and would like to extend my services as an English tutor. BUT FIRST! A little about myself. I'm an native English-speaking Chinese Malaysian with four years of international school teaching experience engaging with students between ages 10 and 18. The methods I employ have less to do with sitting down and constantly repeating grammar exercises, and more to do with creative writing games that allow students to embrace and understand mistakes, rather than fear them; I live and love to make things fun! Classes will consist mainly of activities; debates, short discussions, writing games as well as standard language exercises (depending on what you need/want).
