About Me

I am currently enrolled as a medical student at Yale University with years of experience helping students of all levels reach their academic potential. My teaching style is very much focused on helping clients understand the why behind a specific problem first. We always start with the big picture and then dive into the details that make a specific topic interesting. Science, english, and test prep can be complex and daunting topics for anyone but with the right guide and framework, studying can be a rewarding experience through which we can transform weaknesses into strengths.

Personal fun fact: Following my bachelor's degree, I was selected by the Atlanta Braves in the Major League Baseball draft where I competed for 3 years before attending medical school at Yale.

Learn Dutch in one or three months - experienced coach (20 years of experience) Staatsexamen NT2 trainer - inspired to teach Dutch to expats
A qualified language coach with 20 years of experience offers intensive Dutch lessons in a small class or online. I give many Dutch NT2 lessons to expats and in preparation for an integration exam. Many private lessons for optimal results. In January 2023 I will also start groups again. We have a great classroom in the center of Rotterdam, near the Beurs metro station, lessons with separate tables at a distance of 1.5 meters, good air circulation with 5 students, so compact! You can also choose the online lesson package with Whereby, Teams or Zoom in a comfortable way. Online classes are one on one or up to two, for better results. My English is fluent, as well as Portuguese and Spanish. I understand the difficulties of overcoming barriers for Latin languages and for expats in general, as I have also been an expat. Online lessons last 1.0 hours once a week for 10 weeks to reach a higher level. This is the normal speed. Live classes last 1.5 hours, for 10 weeks to reach one level. Includes exam and certificate. Intensive training ? That can also be done in five to ten full days, I'm used to delivering these very intensive trainings to CEOs who have just arrived ... and want all the lessons in 3 or 4 weeks. Based on the 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 take 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 also teach you about Dutch social culture, which is intertwined in the course and is strongly related to the language.

Homework guidance/Prive lessons MAVO/HAVO/VWO AND PRIMARY SCHOOL
Underachieve? Getting low grades and not knowing why? No motivation to study? It is often difficult for parents to estimate whether the child needs tutoring. And if it is certain that the child needs tutoring, 9 out of 10 times it is too late (stay put, advice too low, etc..) to prevent this, sign up NOW for homework guidance! for both high school and elementary school students. I can come to the tutoring student myself (at home) or via facetime, teams and video calling.
