 I wrote an earlier review but I've now had over 30 lessons. I never started with an exam / work related goal in mind, but thought it might be fun to learn to speak basic Dutch. I don't have a background in languages apart from reasonable English grammar. That I'm still at it after more than 30 lessons probably says it all: I've really enjoyed learning with Sandra. She is obviously very experienced, incredibly patient, supportive of the inevitable difficulties encountered and has constantly sought to focus on areas that would interest me. Her grammar is very good, which she relates well to English equivalents. The lessons are never boring. We all have different language backgrounds and linguistic abilities, but for me she's been excellent.

 Thank you to Sandra for a really informative first class. It was great to get started on putting my limited Dutch in to context. I look forward to our next class xxx

 I took 10 lessons with Sandra. We focused on speaking, role playing situations that were relevant to my everyday interactions, occasionally diving into some grammar aspects. All the lessons were very productive, and though I had little time to work on my own between lessons, I still felt I was making distinct progress. Helemaal goed :)

About me - English

I am Dutch, and am fluent in both Dutch and English because I grew up bilingual. I also learnt German and French, which is helpful because quite a few Dutch words come from these languages. My family is from Den Haag, I studied in Eindhoven, and I have lived near Utrecht and in Brabant.

Qualifications & Experience

I prepare Dutch language exams, and am a Dutch language proficiency examiner and teacher for an international company.

I have been a Dutch language instructor since 1995, a substitute teacher in the public school district, and volunteer as a tutor for the Adult Literacy Program.

Teaching Approach

Whether you need help understanding the basics of the Dutch language, or you are more interested in improving your Dutch language skills, I can help you, whatever your level may be.

I enjoy working with any level of student, whether you are just learning how to read and write in Dutch or are more advanced. Perhaps Dutch is your second language and you would like to increase your vocabulary and pronunciation skills for work, or you need to brush up on your Dutch because you have not spoken it for a while. Maybe you need to take the Dutch "inburgeringsexamen", or you need a B2 level because you want to study or work in the Netherlands. I only use official learning methods, and will work with you to achieve your goals.

About me - Dutch

I am fluent in English. Ik spreek ook vloeiend Nederlands, ben in Nederland naar school geweest en heb daar gestudeerd en gewerkt. Als u naar Nederland vertrekt om daar te werken, u hebt kinderen die de beginselen van de Nederlandse taal nodig hebben, of u bent een student die deze taal graag wil oefenen of beter begrijpen, laat mij dat dan weten. Ik kan u ook meehelpen met het voorbereiden op de Interuniversitaire Taaltest Nederlands voor Anderstaligen (ITNA), het Certificaat Nederlands als Vreemde Taal (CNaVT), het NT2 examen of het inburgeringsexamen.

Qualifications & Experience

Sinds 1995 les gegeven in Nederlands als tweede taal.

Ik gebruik officiële leermethodes. Deze zijn geschikt voor het behalen van bijvoorbeeld de NT2 examens of het inburgeringsexamen.

Ik werk ook als examinator en lerares bij een internationaal talenbedrijf en toets het niveau van het Nederlands van anderstaligen.

Teaching Approach

Ik pas het niveau van het onderwijzen van de Nederlandse taal aan. Als het uw doel is om beter Nederlands te kunnen spreken en schrijven, of het nou voor uw werk of opleiding is, neem dan contact met mij op.
