Personal Description:

I believe that teaching offers me an extremely interesting and challenging environment, and that I, equipped with PhD and extensive experience in academia, am highly suited to address the requirements of this role. I am a disciplined and self-motivated individual who is dedicated to and enjoys guiding, supervising and helping others in an learning environment.I am born and raised in the Netherlands by an English mother. I have lived in the UK for the last 10 years. Most of this time I have been working in an academic environment where teaching, sharing knowledge and refining skills are key ingredients.

Teaching Experience:

I have a great track record of tutoring university (bachelor and master) students, marking exam papers and lab books, guiding and supervising secondary school pupils, teaching English and Dutch to secondary school children and teaching English and Dutch to young adults in developing countries.

Teaching Approach:

First the student's needs and requirements are discussed and targets are set to address these.

All lessons are conversation lessons in the target language.

The texts on which the method is based provide the topics for the conversations in the conversation class.

Meaning, pronunciation and grammatical structures are offered and learned through the given texts.

The most frequently used words of the Dutch language are used in the texts.

During the conversation lessons, the teacher leads the conversation while at the same time assessing the participants’ reading comprehension skills.

Individual assessment forms part of every lesson to make sure the participant has studied and understood the text well enough.
