By profession, I am a journalist, an anthropologist and a qualified Dutch language teacher. I am a native Dutch speaker and I feel much at home in teaching Dutch to adults. In this way, I can combine my interests in teaching Dutch with my passion for languages and cultures.
At Nedles, I am teaching the courses Knowledge of the Dutch Society (KNM). I am also a teacher at various language centres in Amsterdam and I organise tailor-made language courses for those who prefer private lessons.
Feedback from my course members pointed out that I am a very good listener and I have a creative teaching style. I am also good at making creative materials for my lessons. From my side, I find it amazing to observe how students are developing step-by-step their Dutch language skills and their understanding of the customs and cultures in The Netherlands. My lessons are cosy and interactive: students are learning with each other and from each other.
In my free time, I love to travel, I like rhythmic tap dance and I am doing aqua sports.
Looking forward to see you soon at Nedles!
