Teaching


I am not an accredited teacher but besides being native speaker English/French, I have over 4 years experience giving conversation lessons to adults or children, one on one or in groups and homework support. Guaranteed you will learn and practice, in a fun and motivating way.

 

Samples of my work:  
I have guided Dutch pupils to significantly higher grades in VWO and MAVO; I have accompanied a group of enthusiastic 9-year-olds through an introduction to English, I have career coached in English two adults through an English interview and much more.

 

Price and Procedure: 
30 Euros/hour one on one excluding transport costs (if not coming to me), group prices depend on the number of members. There is no VAT added.

 

Testimonials:
“Julie was my saviour in time of need. She is very enthusiastic in teaching. She liked helping me and she also liked the exercises I had to make (she liked them more than me!That’s why I dared to ask everything. I decided what we were going to do in the lessons and she prepared the texts I had sent to her. She is a professional and explained everything until it’s clear to me (100 times if she had to). Before I had Julie I saw the stuff I had to learn as a mountain that was too high to climb, but by doing it together with Julie I didn’t dread making the exercises anymore. It wasn’t just my English that has improved, but she gave me more self-confidence. She taught me to be proud of myself. Julie taught me two years until I finished Highschool (VWO) and I got the highest Mark I had ever had in English. My English is not flawless, but I’m not afraid of making mistakes anymore. Julie is a true person who takes you very serious. I would really recommend her.

“I would like to recommend Julie for her English lessons! For 2 years she playfully tutored my nine year old daughter and three of her friends in feeling comfortable and improving their English! She did this through exercises and games and walks and they looked forward to their Friday session. She has an eye for making her pupils feel at ease and every lesson is an adventure. They are now well prepared for English at school. I can highly recommend Julie!

"I recommend Julie as an editor for academic and other pieces in English. Julie has helped me greatly as the English-editor of my reworking of my PhD-thesis for a book to be published by Palgrave Macmillan. Julie as a native speaker of English removed the Dutchness out of my English, and spotted exactly those pockets of ambiguity of meaning that keep the reader out of the reading flow. Extraordinarily she had no trouble understanding an intellectually demanding philosophical PhD-thesis in a domain which was not her own. Apart from her intellectual and language proficiency, she is a great pleasure to work with because she is flexible, understands the approach needed, and is great in planning and handling the process.

Julie translated and edited my book 'Tomorrow is Today' from Dutch to English. She did an extraordinary job ensuring that texts were organized and handed in timely for me to proof read. I found her to be trustworthy, dynamic, focused on outcome and above all, caring as if it were her own project. I knew Julie from WBII that she presides. She is quick-witted and makes for a fantastic public speaker. With Julie, you just know that what she does, she does it well and her heart is in it! I look forward to work with her again.
