 We talked a lot about sports, discussed feedback on my written assignment and practised making sentences using "zal/zullen+wel".

 Ik heb de dialoog in hoofdstuk 13 gelezen en Helen heeft me geholpen met de uitspraak.

 Today we practiced using scheidbare werkvoorden with a nice and dynamic exercise that Helen prepared using different vocabulary.  
tutor Mateus N
 Helen is really friendly and made me comfortable for the first trial. I was happy with what I could already say, and with the study plan she proposed. I am looking forward for the next lessons.

 Today we practiced the imperfectum and discussed when to use it and when to use the perfectum. To do so, Helen asked me several questions about my weekend and my previous travels to help me understand when to use each of these past forms, it was great practice.

 Thank you Helen for your patience, especially after I had logistical issues, and thank you for your patience as I grapple with the fundamentals of learning a new language!

About me - English

Hello, My name is Helen Koolschijn and I'm an experienced native Dutch language tutor currently living in Barcelona, Spain. I have been teaching Dutch since 2006 as a second language through Skype and ZOOM. I also speak fluent English and Spanish.

I love teaching, traveling, learning about other cultures.

Qualifications & Experience

Since 2006 I have lived abroad and from that moment on I started to teach English as a second language at a language school in La Paz, Bolivia and Dutch as a second language online.

I have a certification in TEFL, TESOL, TEYL and I speak fluent English and Spanish, I also understand a bit of German and French.

Teaching Approach

My lessons are based on speaking the language but we will have a look at grammar, reading, listening and writing as well. I will make you feel comfortable to speak Dutch and we will have a lot of fun.

I can help you with your grammar, reading, speaking, listening and writing and also prepare you for the Dutch Integration Exam A1, A2 and B1, NT2 Program I and II, CNAVT exam or help you with an interview. I usually work with books but I have a lot of other material as well.

I always consider the individual needs of my students and adapt my lessons to their level and needs. Teaching for me is not just a job it is something that I really enjoy doing.
