I would love to help you learning Dutch.
In my lessons I like to focus on conversation. In a fun way I will help you to grasp the grammar and rules of the language and make you feel comfortable to just try and speak.
From the very beginning we will talk in Dutch, also if you just started to learn the language.
I promise you it’s not as scary as it sounds.
I won't bite and making mistakes is part of the learning process.
No learning without making mistakes ;)
I will use different tools to make the lessons fun and interactive. Like videos, books, music, worksheets.
I always adapt my lessons to your level and interests.
I like to mix & match and create my own content for the lessons.
This way I can adjust my lessons to your level and goals.
As a structure for my lessons I use the digital method of Contact.
I love to put some Dutch history and culture in my lessons as well. Cause learning a language also involves learning more about the country itself.
So, every now and then I will create a special theme lesson about the history of the Netherlands or some (weird) Dutch tradition.
I really like to get to know my students and as a teacher learn from you as well.
Right now I am myself learning French ( since my fiancé is from France ) and I know how hard and overwhelming learning a new language can be.
I also know it’s really fun to do and that with online 1 to 1 lessons you can improve your skills very fast.
I would love to be the one helping you with this!
If you are a parent looking for someone to teach your children Dutch. You are at the right place.
I have a lot of experience with teaching children in the age of 4-12 years old.
I teach a new language in a fun and entertaining way.
I use games, songs, books, and some sign language to help your child to have fun learning a new language.
I use Hotel Hallo as the structure of the class and I build around it to create my own lessons. Always adapted to the level of the child and the specific goals. The lessons for children are always 30 minutes, to guarantee there is enough concentration and motivation to finish the class.
I have a lot of experience as a teacher. I was a professional teacher in different Dutch primary schools, kindergartens and worked a lot with special needs children.
I always loved to work with teenagers and adults, that are trying to learn a second language, as well.
Now that I am teaching online, I can combine everything I like. What else could I wish for?
I hope you will trust me in helping you ( or your child ) to learn Dutch.
If you have any questions or want to discuss your language goals with me, contact me.
Send me a message or book a trial lesson!
Ik zal mijzelf ook nog even in het Nederlands voorstellen.
Ik ben Jitske, 31 jaar en woon samen met mijn Franse verloofde in Amsterdam.
Ik heb heel veel zin om jou Nederlands te leren.
De uitspraak kan best lastig zijn in het Nederlands, verschillende klanken zoals UI en EU lijken erg op elkaar, of de G die we in heel veel woorden gebruiken. Tijdens onze gesprekken zal ik daar extra op letten en waar nodig je tools geven om de uitspraak onder de knie te krijgen.
Ik maak gebruik van verschillende media zoals films, muziek, boeken en werkbladen. Alles kan ik aanpassen aan jouw niveau en interesses.
Ik wil je heel graag helpen en laten zien hoe leuk het is om Nederlands te leren.
Ik geef zowel les aan volwassenen (NT2) als aan kinderen. Als ik met kinderen werk dan maak ik gebruik van Hotel Hallo en gebarentaal. Met veel spelletjes en liedjes maken we een reis in het Nederlands.
Ik spreek je hopelijk snel tijdens één van mijn lessen.
