Private Classes

Classes dedicated to you, in your time, at your pace and for your growth, joy and confidence.

Learn Dutch Online & Achieve Goals Your Way

This approach helps you to focus on the right pronunciation, use of grammar, the right sentence structure and of course speaking Dutch in a confident way and in a safe environment. As a teacher and life coach, I help you emerge you in the Dutch language and culture whilst achieving your goals. 

This approach is for you if you:

☑ want to learn in your own time
☑ want to learn in your own pace
☑ have specific questions and goals you want to work on yourself
☑ have a busy schedule and need flexibility
☑ want to build confidence without the nervosity
☑ want to deep dive in the Dutch language and fully focus on your growth

Learn Dutch the best way

My private classes are focused on you. This gives you the opportunity to ask questions and have the material you want to focus on. The setting is like having a conversation with a friend whilst doing activities. 

In this way I can fully listen in to your pronunciation, sentence structure and more so we can zoom in on your growth and what can be improved. I do this by making connections and teaching in such a way that you can find the answer yourself. A very satisfied way of learning!

Speak Dutch as a second language

As a fanatic learner myself, I know what it is to learn a new language. That’s why I am patient and making learning fun so that you can recognise the language and structure the best way. 

Lessons are one hour, include all material and are held on Zoom. 

You can also choose to do lessons with a family member or a friend that has a similar level.

I use a blend of different methods based on the language level, goals and interests my students have. For adults I mostly use De Opmaat/De Sprong/De Finale as well as Spreektaal and Melkweg. For children I use Hotel Hallo, NT2 Praat Mee and Veilig Leren Lezen. 

Some people want to just have a few classes to get ready for a trip to the Netherlands or to shortly focus on a specific goal. I recommend choosing the long term package, because this provides you with enough lessons to work more on your Dutch and you can always extend it if you like. Bonus is that you create a habit of speaking more Dutch regularly and you pay less per hour!

You can either continue having classes with me on a 12 week base (for the same rate) or continue month to month. 

There is a 24hr reschedule policy. If you cancel a class before the 24hr you may reschedule the class earlier or later in the week or as an extra class in another week. If you are a long term student going on a holiday (or similar reason) let me know in advance and you get it credited!

I teach online via Zoom. That means I can teach you from literally anywhere in the world! Most of my students live in Australia (I’m from Melbourne!), but I do have students in other countries. As long as our timezones and schedules align with what works best for you!

Yes, of course!

The first three months (12 weeks) of the long term package can be paid in full. There is also the possibility to pay it in 2x AUD$ 395,- or in 3x AUD$ 265,- for 12 weeks. 

I love teaching kids and this is how I started out as a Dutch teacher. Kind of my jam! 

I have created my own interactive lessons for children and they can have 1:1 lessons or with a sibling, together or half an hour each, with our without you helping out as a parent. For beginners it’s focused on creating active vocabulary in a playful manner, which then changes in to speaking and reading confidently and even adding grammar. I also train teenagers for their VCE/HSC.

Homework is totally optional. I know most of my students lead beautiful, busy lives and are happy to have a lesson a week and focus on that. 

My classes are build in such a way that you can move on where we left off. I do recommend to practice daily by using Duolingo, talking to a Dutch partner/family member etc. or put Dutch music or a podcast or video on. Happy to recommend you something!
