English lessons from a teacher of English

I studied English and was an English teacher in a secondary school and also taught adults. Working in a group, you don't have enough time for everyone as a teacher. That is why I make tailor-made lessons and teach 1-on-1. Only then can you really take your English to the next level. Together, we look at your specific goals and draw up a learning plan. The lessons are generally online, but on site is also possible if it is within Leusden.

  • English tutoring for secondary school pupils and college/university students

Written consultation and proofreading

Perhaps you're too shy to get in touch or you're just way too busy. Let's write! I've got two types of written consultation:


Type 1: send in a text for correction:
– A check for correct spelling, grammar and punctuation
– Explanations and suggestions in the margin so you can improve your writing skills and target specific areas of writing

– General feedback in an overview by e-mail

The fee depends on the length of the text and what it is exactly that you want me to look at or pay extra attention to. Also have a look at the page on proofreading.


Type 2: Teacher-like consultation

– Ask your question on learning English (or language acquisition in general)


Once you pick type 2 and e-mail me, you can start an e-mail conversation about the difficulties you're having with learning English (or a different langauge). This type consists of 2 fulll e-mail replies from me, in which I cover the points you want to address and in which I give you tailored, personal advice.


Power up your translation

Your new target audience simply won't search using the same terms you used in the original. I do extensive keyword research and incorporate these into the translation. I also adapt the meta description, slugs and links.

Don't want to strip your entire site and upload all translations separately? Then I'll just translate into your CMS.

Have you already prepared all strings from the application for translation in a self-built program or do you use translation.io, for example? No problem either. Just be aware that the translation may affect the word order. Also remember to annotate buttons and menus so that I can make the translation in context.

I look at what hashtags your target audience is using and adapt the translation accordingly. Of course, I also take text length into account, which sometimes requires condensing the content.

For larger projects, I like to write style guides and create terminology lists for internal use. This ensures that your message remains consistent, even if your own staff or other freelancers start writing and translating again in the future.

I always write down for you exactly what I am going to do. But if it is a project spanning several weeks or months, I am happy to make a schedule on request. In it, I also state what I need from you and your marketeers and programmers. Naturally, you remain in charge and you can indicate what you want to have translated first. Consider, for example, the application, website, blogs, and support articles.
