    About Me

    I have been teaching before starting my degree. It is my vocation, so you will always see me happy and full of energy before our lessons. We are going to learn and have a great time at the same time. No boredom allowed!

    I have been teaching both privately with smalls groups and 121 and with bigger classrooms sizes. I have done adult education, for ages up to 65! So whatever your age, I've taught someone your age before!

    Before the lessons we will assess the specific needs and methods to be used, but in any case I always prepare my own materials. This is to make sure that my materials are the most relevant and contain only up to date information, used in the country. How many times have we learnt something, tried to use it in the country and people tell you "erm... we don't use that word anymore".

    I have been teaching in Spain and England, and I've just arrived to the Netherlands to keep on expanding my experience abroad.

    Any specific request or need that you may have? then tell me and I'll try my hardest to accommodate it.

I am experienced in teaching pupils for whom English is an additional language, and adapt lessons for all pupils' needs and challenges, regardless of their context.

I assign homework, typically focussed on developing English reading skills.

    English literature, language, comprehension, and fluency.
    I have worked as a supplementary English tutor in Johannesburg South Africa for the past six years - mostly at primary and secondary school level. I am a fluent English speaker, and majored in English Literature and History of Art in my Bachelor of Arts degree, for which I received a distinction. I also tutored at a collegiate level in History of Art. I put a lot of emphasis on the role of literature and reading in learning a language, and hope to use resources like books, articles and even films to inspire my students. I also like to make classes fun and exciting for the learners.

    Engels voor gevarieerde doelgroepen door een tweetalige juf
    Engels is ongetwijfeld één van de belangrijkste talen in de wereld in zowel een sociaal als professioneel perspectief. Wil je beter kunnen begrijpen waar al die Engels-talige liedjes nou echt over gaan of wil je een Hollywood film zonder ondertiteling kunnen volgen? Wil je jezelf beter kunnen uitdrukken tegenover je Engelse vrienden? Heb je extra hulp nodig met het voorbereiden voor een Engelse examen? Wil je op een toepasselijke manier in het Engels kunnen communiceren voor je werk? Met al deze dingen en nog véél meer ben je bij mij op het juiste adres. Na 13 jaar in Canada te hebben gewoond spreek ik op een native niveau Engels. Buiten dat heb ik een universitaire diploma in Second Language Teaching en heb ik twee jaar in Madrid les gegeven. Een vreemde taal kan voor veel mensen behoorlijk wat stress bezorgen. Desalniettemin, ik doe altijd mijn best om mijn lessen zo interessant en stress-vrij mogelijk te maken. Ik ben een enthousiate, geduldige en erg positieve juf.
