About the teacher

Teaching English is ultimately about helping people to communicate using the English language, and witnessing the fun and joy that that brings to them, as they become more confident communicating in English. I have taught English at the Volksuniversiteit in Amsterdam and Amstelveen, as well as Nijenrode and Utrecht Universities. I have an English teaching qualification from Cambridge University and I am also a qualified management accountant. Previously I worked in finance for 25 years, for both blue chip companies and NGOs.

I look forward to welcoming you to my classes, where you will receive a high level of personal attention that will stimulate you to learn English in a way that you have not previously encountered!

Chris Bonnar, January 2017.
