My name is Stephanie and I`m trilingual Dutch, French and English. I also speak Spanish. I have a Master`s degree in French Literature and Culture, I have a postgraduate in Translation and Interpreting at the University of Westminster in London and I have a Postgraduate Certificate in French and Spanish (PGCE) from King`s College. I also teach English as a second language (I have a Cambridge degree CELTA). As you can read, I am passionate about languages. I teach adults and young students between 11-18.
I have a truly multicultural and multilingual background, having a French mother and a Dutch father, and having been educated at French schools while growing up in the USA and in The Netherlands. I have a genuine passion for France and all things French, and studied French language and then French translation at university. French and Dutch are my native tongues. After a rewarding career in project management and translation, I now feel as though I have found my true calling, teaching the languages and cultures that I love.
While I believe that I do naturally transmit my enthusiasm for the French and Spanish languages to students, more importantly, I place a real premium on understanding and then providing the right environment for each student to thrive in. Ultimately, the best way I can share my love of learning languages and cultures is through giving each student a genuine feeling that they are succeeding. My understanding of learning is that confidence is key, and that once that a true level of confidence has been established on a solid grounding of knowledge, students can progress in ways that can affect every area of their live. This is why I enjoy one-to-one tuition so much.
I am naturally a friendly people-orientated person and to-date, believe that I have established a good bond with each of my students, predominantly through taking an interest in them and supporting their needs.
