My Services

I provide individual tutoring in the Dutch language with expats in Hilversum at home or at a central location in the village. The condition is that they already follow a Dutch language course elsewhere. I also offer expats in Hilversum to help them network within the region and thus expand their social and / or professional network.

Then take advantage of my offer: a first tutoring appointment, the first half hour of which is completely free! After the first half hour you decide if my teaching method and my person suit you.

All classes are completely exempt from VAT  (BTW)! Nice to meet you!

Strippenkaart (Strip card)

It is inconvenient if you keep getting invoices for payments to me or you have to pay everything in cash. To keep this to a minimum, you can purchase the strip card (strippenkaart). Each strippenkaart is good for a certain number of hours of tutoring in the Dutch language. If you use the strippenkaart you immediately benefit from a discount that can be as high as 10% on the standard hourly rate of € 20, – One lesson usually lasts 1 1/2 hours, with a minimum of 1 hour and a maximum from 2 hours. A strippenkaart is charged in advance and is completely free of VAT!

Have you been in the Netherlands for a short time and would you like to get in touch with more Dutch people? If you still don’t know where to find your way around in Hilversum, I might be able to help you by doing an online and offline network survey. I will then help you find your way by asking about your wishes and subsequently I will search for possible suitable online links and offline places to be. You still have to make the contacts yourself, I can only show you the way! A online and offline network survey is completely free for the first half hour for introduction and orientation. If you find me and my proposal worthwhile, you pay a one-off € 20 after this half hour (this amount is exempt from VAT/BTW!). For this I will, with your wishes in mind, get to work and I will send you a personal report by e-mail.

Route guidance

Are you studying for the State Exam Dutch as a Second Language (NT2) and would you like to receive tutoring for a longer period of time (longer than 24 hours)? After getting acquainted (see introductory offer on this page) I will be most happy to guide you in doing your homework and further develop your Dutch sense of language. We use the teaching methods from which you are already learning. I would like to help you with the pronunciation, your language comprehension and the spelling of Dutch.
