I can help you to improve your English language skills. Writing good emails, composing a convincing CV or application, with all these aspects I can assist you. I can offer support for a better understanding of English grammar, and can help you to enlarge your vocabulary, and to improve your pronunciation. I also proofread and translate texts for a variety of businesses and professionals (from English to Dutch and from Dutch to English).
The Dutch language lessons might concern the same topics, but NT2 (Dutch as second language) lessons usually focus on the basics of the language (listening, speaking, conversation, reading, writing) related to everyday language use (think of meeting people, sending emails, shopping etc.). This is conform the A2-level, tested in the Dutch Inburgering exam. If you want to study Dutch for work or study you will need B1-level (Staatsexamen-NT2 I) or B2-level (Staatsexamen-NT2 II). Understandability is always what matters not a perfect use of grammar (although this aspect is not unimportant).
For my lessons I usually select a book (from a well-known publisher) that matches your wishes. This way all important ingredients of langage learning (listening, reading, writing and speaking) will be covered. If necessary I will look for additional materials, which will garantee a custom-made approach.
I have studied English Language & Culture at Leiden University (BA en MA) and have much experience as a lecturer at Delft University of Technology. I also teached at a secondary school (ISK, Internationale Schakelklas) in Delft. For many years now I have provided lessons (for both groups and individuals) groepslessen, I coach students with their thesis writing (which includes students with dyslexia) with good results.
To book a lesson
Every student is welcome. In the years that I have been teaching Dutch and English I helped people from a variety of backgrounds such as French, Dutch, English, Italian, Spanish, Turkish, Arabic (Morocco, Syria), Polish, and Ukrainian. I speak and understand some of these languages; if not, we use English as a bridge language.
If you would like to book a lesson, just contact me. Then we can book a lesson for you together. The availability shown on the website gives you an indication and may differ from week to week.
The number of lessons depends on your goal. If you want to improve a single topic or prepare yourself or an upcoming Staatsexamen than 1 lesson or 4 lessons will be a good choice. If you want to study a whole ERK-level from, say, A0 to A1 or from B1 to B2 than you will need more lessons.
