Katrijn Raaijmakers


My name is Katrijn Raaijmakers. I started as a Dutch language teacher at Boost Transvaal in 2016, and have also started teaching at Nedles in August 2018. Teaching is something I enjoy doing very much. In addition to teaching NT2 classes, I have been teaching Swahili for over 20 years. I have a background in African Linguistics (Leiden University) and I travel to East Africa as often as possible.

Together with our daughters, my husband I live in East Amsterdam, which is of course the nicest neighborhood in Amsterdam. If there is any time left in my busy days: I love reading!
