Personal Description:

I am 26, and a Native speaker of English and Dutch. I have completed my BA of Arts in English literature (Free University of Amsterdam and York St. John University) and language and my MA in Education (Durham University). The primary focus on my MA Degree was creative and critical learning in English in secondary schools. I have been teaching a great part of my life, and enjoy learning while teaching too! I'm currently doing a part time PhD in creative and critical learning in secondary school poetry education

Tutoring Experience:

TESOL module at York St. John's
Tutoring English individually or in small groups to people with various first languages, including English as a first language (ages 4-26).
Tutoring exam preparation and towards important tests (a number of pupils doubled and/or tripled their scores after a few lessons with me)
Teaching assistant in a secondary school (The Netherlands)
Violin teacher (ages 8-23)
Horsemanship teaching (teaching horses and humans through a creative approach to friendly and positive, yet clear communication)

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is a creative approach in the sense that I am a firm believer in deep learning. I will treat each pupil as an individual and try to cater to their needs, this goes from a very structured way of teaching to a very free and creative way of teaching.
My dissertation for my MA was on creative and critical learning in poetry. Besides deep learning, I also believe that for a learner to succeed, it is important to join in and learn interactively. In my experience, this leads to confidence building and allows the learner to try approaches that work for the individual. I also realise that in secondary school education it is important to learn to become an independent, creative and critical thinker while keeping in mind the goals set for the upcoming exams.
