Personal Description:

I am an acclaimed teacher, trainer and coach from the Netherlands with an international professional background, having lived and worked in countries such as Chile, Canada, Indonesia, Poland, England and now Northern Ireland. I am dedicated to empowering students and life long learners to achieve goals that are important to them, such as overcoming challenges that come with certain courses, so they can move forward in becoming the person they want to be and creating a fulfilling and successful life.

I very much enjoy working with people to achieve goals that matter to them, while honouring the individual differences and strengths of each person I work with.

Tutoring Experience:

I have over 13 years of teaching and training experience in Higher Education. I've taught at the University of Groningen, the Netherlands, at the Psychology department (Organizational Management, Change Management, Social and Psychological conversational skills, Child Psychology and Cultural Psychology), and trained professional communication skills to students of the Faculties of Law, Natural Sciences, Medicine, Pharmacy, Dentistry and postgraduate students.

At the Hanze University of Applied Sciences in Groningen, I taught and facilitated Social Work and Dental Hygiene. I've taught teaching staff at University how to be more effective teachers and I taught Human Resource Management and Organizational Behaviour and Management courses at International Business and Management Studies at The Hague University, also in the Netherlands. There, in addition to teaching, I convened and taught a 4 year curriculum Study and Leadership Skills, which aim was to prepare students for professional life after studies. Moreover, I taught adult professional learners courses such as Business Communication, HRM, Intercultural Communication in their Bachelors' study programme.

Currently I train clinical communication skills to Medical students at King's College and Imperial College in London, UK.

Tutoring Approach:

Our tutoring session(-s) will be highly tailored to you achieving your goals and results in the most effective and enjoyable way. I believe people learn best when they enjoy the learning process. This means I will always start by asking you what teaching style works best for you, how you prefer to learn, and what is important to you in us working together.
My promise to you is that I will do everything that I can to facilitate your learning process; help you achieve your goals faster, easier and with more fun. That said, for you to actually achieve those goals depends on your commitment and amount of work you put in yourself.

My style is flexible, constructive and solution focused, based on a solid background and experience in methods and tools teaching many different people from many different backgrounds.
