Personal Description:

I am an experienced Dutch tutor. A Dutch national and native speaker, I speak Dutch, English, French and German and have been teaching Dutch, as a second language, in the UK for many years. I am currently learning to speak Spanish.

I was educated in the Netherlands and gained a BA in Sociology in Birmingham, plus a TEFL qualification in second language acquisition in Seville, Spain. I am also a member of a professional Dutch teacher's organisation which keeps me updated with information relating to 'Dutch for speakers of other languages'.

It all started when a very good friend of mine fell in love with a man from the Netherlands (a Nederlander). This led to teaching and taking her through a Dutch language course. The rest is history as the saying goes. I really enjoy and feel privileged in teaching my native Dutch language to others who are either in love, have Dutch family and friends, want to further their career or perhaps move to the Netherlands.

I teach Dutch corporately and privately either face to face or line and I have a full DBS because of my connections with schools and colleges. I am totally committed to teaching the Dutch language at all levels.

My goal is always to provide you with the best learning experience at an affordable cost.

Teaching Experience:

Teaching Dutch privately and corporately.
Teaching Dutch at a primary school in the UK.
Teaching Dutch for a Charity (children with Dutch background).
Skype Lessons and Language Maintenance.
Coaching for GCSE Level Dutch.
External Examiner Speaking Dutch GCSE.
Preparing for the Integration Exam.
Teaching English as a second language in Seville Spain to children and adults as part of my course.

Teaching Approach:

I offer Dutch language courses for beginners, intermediate and advanced levels.

The courses are well structured, interactive and communicative. The Beginners Course to A2 level equips students with all the Dutch language skills needed to communicate in everyday situations. The textbooks are made up of chapters which all look at a specific area of everyday life.
For example, we first focus on the pronunciation of vowel sounds, preposition of place, nationalities and countries, simple present verbs, past verb forms, idiomatic future and describing people and places. You will quickly develop skills in listening, reading, spoken interaction, spoken production and writing the Dutch language. Lessons cover `every day` topics relating to Dutch culture and society.

The Beginners Course is the first step towards achieving the language standards recommended by the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) A2. At the end of the course students can interact with a degree of fluency and have reached the capacity to express themselves and discuss contrasting viewpoints. At B1 level you will be able to pass the Integration exam and at B2 level the Staatsexam.

Beginners A1-A2
