Qualified language coach with 20 years of experience offers lessons to students in regular classes of Dutch

successful crashcourse in five full days divided over 3 to 5 weeks, to go from level A-0 to A-2. Includes good speaking skills.

These intensive courses will start from June 15th 2020. Its one on one (with 2 meters social distance), so you can chose the days of full immersion.

Ask for more info. I can offer you private lessons Dutch in a cozy and quiet location in Rotterdam Blaak (free parking).

My English is fluent, as well as my Portuguese. Spanish is almost fluent, I understand the difficulties to overcome barriers for latin based languages.

Online lessons take 1.0 hour, once a week, during 10 weeks to reach one extra level. This is the normal speed.

Intensive race? it's possible in five full days, I am used to give these very intensive trainings to CEOs who just arrived ...

Based on European system A-1, A-2, B-1 and B-2.

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 universities.

I will try to switch to Dutch after a few lessons, to put 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 about the Dutch social culture, this is interwoven in the race.

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 !

Reviews (10)

Zeer ervaren en prettige docent die goed les geeft ( en overigens wel een stuk ouder is dan op de foto die jullie tonen, maar daardoor niet minder leuk!)
Very good teacher!!!
Useful and dinamic classes. Highly recommended.
Rustig, goede uitleg, leuke les geweest!
Pas 2 lessen gehad, dus nog moeilijk te zeggen. Positief zover; hoop wel dat we later wat meer conversatie kunnen oefenen
...
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 19 jaar praktische ervaring zodanig combineren dat de lessen goed onderbouwd en stimulerend zijn. Ik heb in beide landen gewoond en gestudeerd, dus een ‘native speaker, dus geen Nederlander die een cursus heeft gedaan :-) Jarenlang heb ik ook business training gegeven aan twee zeer bekende taalscholen, dus ik weet hoe ik in korte tijd veel kennis kan overdragen. Dat voel je na een paar lessen. Zakelijk Portugees of met spoed leren 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), 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. Vanaf 08 juni a.s. kun je ook weer voor privélessen kiezen, ik kom naar elk adres in de Randstad of je komt naar onze gezellige locatie in Rotterdam Centrum, bij station Blaak, met gratis parkeren. Lessen bij mij thuis (Molenlaan kwartier) zijn ook mogelijk. Hoe dan ook, mijn lessen zijn zeer gestructureerd en stap voor stap. Daarnaast zet ik altijd het 'waarom' 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 te 'dwingen' om hun kennis om te zetten in spreekvaardigheid 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.
