语音学 - 荷兰语家教和老师
Hi! I am Tamara. I have a university degree in literature and linguistics and I am an experienced language teacher, with 7 years of experience. I used to work for a language school in Brussels, teaching and tutoring Dutch, until I decided to move to Spain, and started teaching online. I love languages and helping people to improve their language skills. I believe learning a foreign language can be a lot of fun. I try to adapt the lessons, as much as possible, to the student's needs and interests, and I use different methods during the lessons. I love my job and I am looking forward to meeting you! (I don't have that many hours available on my calendar here, but if you send me a message, we can find a moment that works for the both of us, and I'll open it on my calendar for you.)
Hi My name is Pascale! My native language is Dutch, and my second language is English. I speak many more, because I am fascinated by languages. I believe I can help you in a great and fun way to learn a language. Learning a new language can open so many doors to people and it can be life changing. It is just fascinating! So if you take a chance on me, I will make sure to help you in the best way I can! In 2014 I started teaching English and Dutch online to adults and children. I teach students from entry to advanced levels. I can help you with: - fluency - pronunciation - grammar - listening skills - conversational skills - vocabulary preparation for: - job application - NT2 We can read something, do role plays, describe pictures, listen to music or short video's, have a free conversation; it is all possible. It is important to me to make my students feel comfortable and to have fun during the class, as I believe it's the best motivation to improve and to get the most out of it. My goal is to get you talking as soon as possible! Conversation is the most important to focus on and most motivating in my opinion. Every person is unique to me. I am convinced that we can find a method catered to your needs. We can learn material that fits your level, or have a free conversation about a topic of your interest. I am very flexible and patient, and like to use recognizable illustrations and examples during the class to support an understandable explanation of things. After we've determined your level we will decide together how we will conduct the class. I am open for your suggestions as well, so please feel free! "If you don't use it, you'll lose it", so let's use the language together. I am looking forward to meet you very soon! Pascale - I ask all students to have their cameras on. - Classes can be rescheduled or cancelled up to 12 hours prior to starting time. After this time the classes will not be rescheduled/ cancelled, and will be charged accordingly - If I do not receive a message that the student will be late, I will wait 15 minutes for the student (10 minutes for trial classes). After this the class will be considered complete, and charged accordingly. *****
Are you ready to learn Dutch of Flemish? Are you ready to stop waisting your time and money on methods that don't work? Then you came to the right place. I try to make my online lessons as cosy as possible. I use the video-conference system, so I can see my students and they can see me; we can talk, we make the exercises together, I explain all the grammar, and if my students have any doubt or questions, I explain it orally which I think makes it easier to be understood. It is as if we were sitting in an office side by side. The only thing we cannot do is drinking a coffee while we study. Besides the lessons, I always send some homework. I will send a book that we follow, and the rest of the material is sent by me by e-mail as well. As soon as it is possible, I advise my students to start reading books in the language they learn, and from the very beginning to start listening to the TV. It is a way of being surrounded by the language. I always insist a lot on the accent, and this helps. I have students with a perfect accent. Listening to the language also helps to open the hears to the sounds, making easier to understand. From the very beginning I also start with small conversations in each lesson. You may believe that all my students are being very successful with this kind of lessons. I have now students from all over the world. Concerning the level my students attain, of course it depends on them. Together we see what your needs are and how fast you want to learn. As for the number of lessons per week, I advise that you should have at least two. Less than two is very little and you have a long break between lessons. It is bad because you don't have any contact with the language and feel that you are advancing very slowly. I am a qualificated teacher in Dutch language and have been teaching for more than 20 years at school and online, groups as well as lessons.
It took me a long time to find my real passion in my (work) life. After studying in two universities, graduating in two bachelors, travelling the world and working abroad for several years I realized public education is where my heart lies. I went for the third time back to university to study Dutch, pedagogy and methodology. For 5 years I have been teaching as a classroom teacher in Dutch primary schools before I moved abroad to Colombia where I became also an English teacher. I am specialized in teaching in pre-, elementary, middle (secondary) and high school. I have been teaching in all different grades and all primary subjects, including Dutch (as this is my native language and of course in schools in the Netherland we teach in Dutch). Most schools where I have been working were inspired by the philosophy of 'Vygotsky'. Working in the Netherlands in education and in several countries worldwide have allowed me to gain a variety of skill sets. These experiences also have provided me with the tools necessary for working abroad and online including adaptability, patience, dedication to my peer’s success, and respect for cultural and societal norms. Aside from this being my day to day job already for the past 8 years in Dutch and Bilingual primary, middle and high schools, I started teaching in the afternoons individual classes online and face to face to Dutch expats and other nationalities that wanted to learn Dutch as a second language. I am new to Verbling as I haven't offered my services in the past through an official platform. With the recent changes worldwide I thought it is a good moment to focus more on online teaching while being stuck in the house. Let me know which level you have and if there's anything specific you would like to focus on. I have experience in teaching all facets of the language.
