Leercoach / native speaker

I was born and bred in England and in 1995 I moved to Holland, where I now live in Emmen with my Dutch husband and son. From 1971 to 1976 I attended Durrington High School in Worthing. After leaving school at the age of sixteen, I immediately started full time work. I had always worked in an administrative environment, where I came into constant contact with people from all walks of life. Beginning 2014 I began volunteer work for the Drenthe College as an English language coach, and assisted teachers during the English oral examinations. Most of the young people that have been to see me are the ones that want assistance preparing for their oral exams, and help with confidence building. Some of them are referred to me by the teachers for extra coaching. Since 2017 I began doing the same work for Het Centrum Ontwikkeling en Educatie in Emmen and now also for Het Educatie Centrum. As a native speaker I can understand how difficult it is for the children to learn a second language. In some cases I have been able to provide coaching to young children with an advanced level of English. With these children it provides them with challenges they do not receive in the classroom. The aim is provide a calm environment where our clients enjoy and receive individual attention and confidence learning a second language.
