Who am I?

I started my teaching career as a primary school teacher in Amsterdam Bos en Lommer and worked there for 17 years. A lot of my pupils had a Turkish or Moroccan background. After this I worked for 13 years in the beautiful Royal Amsterdam Zoo Artis as a teacher with pupils of 4-18 years old. I taught them all about nature conservation, durability, biology, in short: love for nature. In 2015 I started my own company Yes, Learning Dutch for non-Dutch speaking adults and the first 2 years I combined this with teaching young children from Syria at a primary school.

In my Dutch lessons I like to use a lot of different tools to make my lessons fun, creative and interactive. I feel that my background as a primary schoolteacher really helps to make my lessons as interesting and variable as possible! It’s very important for me that my students will totally feel at home during my classes because I think this is essential for learning a new language.

Hope I can welcome you soon!
