About me

" If you do what you love, you'll never work a day in your life."


My name is Elisabeth and I live in the Netherlands. I am a well-qualified language teacher. I have taught foreigners languages for 15 years, at all levels, from beginners to advanced and for children also.

Language learning and teaching - it is my passion. I like travelling to the different countries and communicating and knowing better the culture, traditions, habits, and phrases which help me to understand the structure of the language etc.

Some of my students have thought that I was Russian. I have to say my mother tongue is not Russian. I really love the Russian Language, so I decided to study it academically as much as possible. First I have been studying it 4 years in high school , after that 2 years in Moscow, Russia. I have a masters degree and finally, I have spent 3 years on Ph.D. studies in Moscow, Russia.

Qualifications & Experience

I am a professionally qualified and experienced language teacher with a Degree of Master of Arts in Philology.

I possess fifteen years of experience as a language teacher and tutor. For the past seven years I have been working as a private Russian, German, English and Dutch language teacher and online language teacher catering to students, travellers and corporate clients around the world.

After I graduated from a Teacher Training Institute I studied and worked in Russia for five years, teaching Russian in The Hungarian Embassy in Moscow, also to Hungarian trade representatives in Moscow. I also worked for a Language School in Moscow as a language teacher.

Teaching Approach

My lessons are interesting, but also informative. I create a positive, friendly classroom atmosphere.

I offer complex language lessons of German, Dutch and Russia, initially to gain the passive vocabulary - then to transfer the passive vocabulary to active - speak, & also read and write, regardless of Your level, and combine of these four skills : understand, speaking, reading, writing.

In each cases I follow a personalized approach so your course can be only communicative centred, or writing centred, etc. to suit your wishes and needs.
