I can speak four languages, so I understand what it is like to learn a new language which is what makes me an excellent Dutch/Flemish tutor and teacher. I was born and raised in Belgium and went to a Flemish-speaking school from kindergarten until 5th grade. I am grateful to have been immersed in a Flemish school from a very young age because this language has been permanently etched into my brain! Learning languages helped me to be a more well-rounded person by opening up my understanding of culture, humanity, and the world. It would be my honor to hopefully do the same for you! Thank you for your consideration.
About Elise H.

Hello! My name is Elise. I was born in Belgium, raised by an American mother and a Swiss father. For twenty years, I have been teaching children to adults of various ages. I have a Master's degree in Intercultural Studies, which makes me an expert at understanding and connecting with people from any cultural background. I am an encouraging, energetic, and culturally sensitive teacher. I work hard to kindly provide consistent corrections to my students. My goal as a teacher is that the students feel confident in the subject matter and feel empowered to continue growing in the skill they wish to attain. Thank you for booking me as your tutor or teacher!

Elise is an encouraging, enthusiastic and real person with a massive heart for the people she teach. Every time I have been around her I have walked away more empowered and inspired to keep moving forward. I can highly recommend her.

Elise is a knowledgeable, professional, ethical, engaged, and helpful tutor. She has been especially helpful in the complexities of learning a new language and made sure I really understood complex grammatical rules and how to apply them. She is also personable, warm, kind, inviting, and really cares about her student's progress. She was on time, well prepared and engaged in all our meetings. I learned a lot. So far she has been the best German tutor I have had. Cannot recommend Elise enough for language lessons!

I taught English online to students aged 6-11 in China. I prepared the lesson by using various props and notecards to make it as easy as possible for the student to learn English. I also used a rewards system and stuffed animals to encourage them and make the lesson fun.
