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.

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 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 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.

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).

Lessen Arabisch voor iedereen (kinderen en volwassenen)
Hallo, Ik heb 10 jaar onderwijservaring in de basisschool. Ik geef lessen aan kinderen tussen 6 en 13 jaar. Sinds het jaar 2007 geef ik ook les aan volwassenen tussen 16 en 25 jaar en ouder. Ik heb de voorbije jaren heel wat didactische en pedagogische ervaring opgebouwd. { Wat bied ik momenteel? } 1. Een beginners cursus voor starters. 2. Een tweede cursus voor zij die reeds de Arabische letters en klanken beheersen. 3. Een derde cursus voor kinderen en/of volwassenen die minstens moeizaam woorden kunnen lezen. 4. Een vierde cursus voor kinderen en/of volwassenen die reeds vlot kunnen lezen maar meer willen begrijpen. 5. Een vijfde cursus voor kinderen en/of volwassenen die reeds vlot kunnen lezen en begrijpen, MAAR nood hebben aan een basis cursus Arabische grammatica. De cursussen worden door mezelf ontwikkeld. Ik onderwijs in het Arabisch. Voor meer uitleg schakel ik over naar het Nederlands, Frans of Engels. Aan bod komen verhalen, gedichten, spreek-, schrijf-, lees-, en luisteroefeningen. De onderwerpen worden gekozen op basis van de interesse van de leerling(en), maar onderwerpen uit de sociale omgeving (school, ziekenhuis, winkel, familie, sportclub, politie, ... ) komen ook aan bod. Om het niveau te bepalen legt elke leerling/cursist een instaptoets af. Om de 5 weken is er een herhalingsles en een toets. De leerlingen krijgen na iedere les huiswerk maar is nooit overweldigend. De leerlingen krijgen een periodiekrapport. De lessen worden online (Zoom) of op mijn leslocatie (Zaventem) of op locatie bij de leerling(en) onderwezen. Ik ben heel de week beschikbaar voor vragen. Het lesgeld voor een lange verbintenis is bespreekbaar.

Assistance with writing and bibliographic research
Graduated with a master's degree in human sciences, writing and bibliographic research were an integral part of my five years of study. From there, I wish to transmit my knowledge and my strategies to all those interested in this perspective. Each person having their own background, the first course aims to determine what are the short and long-term objectives, what are the student's abilities and difficulties and what are the sources of motivation for learning. When all of this has been discerned together, a course is mapped out to the final destination which is the achievement of the student's goals.

My methods are based on listening, dialog and creativity: they adjust to match your needs, goals and interests may you be looking for help with academic French at school, conversational French, or writing tips (you name it!) You can count on lots of videos, podcasts, articles, songs, fiction and non fiction texts, photos, art pieces, social media posts, TV series, etc. as well as oral and written homemade exercises, tests, etc. to go on at your own pace with autonomy. I am there to make you feel comfortable and confident and help you reveal your linguistic and literary skills in a relaxed and playful atmosphere. Your questions, doubts and mistakes will be the engine of the classes. I studied Modern Literature and Creative Writing in Paris and I have tutored students of all ages and proficiency since 2017. I keep on learning as well with each and everyone of my students. Feel free to contact me! Thank you! Noémie

Supervision during the writing of the maturity work
During the supervision of your maturity work, I accompany you during all the stages. From the "roughing out of the subject" to the defense of the work. We look at the problem together, like writing a scientific work, a summary that presents the conclusions of the work. Several rereadings of it. For those who present themselves as a free candidate, I can be your accompanying person.
