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.

Before starting The English Lab in 2015, I taught English at the Universities of Nijenrode and Utrecht, at Babel Talen in Utrecht and at the Volksuniversiteit in Amsterdam and Amstelveen.

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 blue chip companies (Reed Elsevier, Philips) and NGOs (IUCN, Aidenvironment) in Dublin, London and Amsterdam.

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