After having finished my education I worked in Dutch primary schools (kindergarten to year 7) in both Germany and the Netherlands before I moved to the USA in 2008. I had been working part-time at NTC de Eekhoorn (a Dutch after school program in the Woodlands) for 4 years, when the BSH gave me the opportunity to teach my own native language and culture full time to a rich diversity of Dutch native speakers in KS3 and KS4. Working with students of this age group is a real pleasure. There is so much you can do with them and get to the bottom of things.

I am married and have two teenage daughters.  My hobbies are photography, yoga, and bike riding.  On my bucket list, I would like to visit some of natures most impressive phenomenon in the USA like the Grand Canyon and Niagara falls as well as take a motorcycle ride through Colorado and Utah with my wife.

What the students say about me...

“He makes the lessons fun and entertaining and goes over everything until everyone understands it clearly.”

“He is very enthusiastic and always knows unique ways of learning new vocabulary, grammar rules and techniques for writing tests.”

“He has absolute endless patience. He has helped me sustain my first language at a good level.”

This school is different to all others I have worked at because…

This school is different to all others I have worked at because of its international character. I really like the diversity of nationalities here. It gives me and the children a wider perspective of the world. The students are usually well behaved and motivated, my fellow teachers are kind and driven and I think the school is well managed. All this together makes it a very nice place to work!
