My name is Bob and I’m born and raised in the South of The Netherlands. Besides being an iTalki teacher, I’m a professional musician, after having graduated from my Bachelor of Music, at the Rock Academy in 2019. My professional life brought me to several countries and cultures. So it happened that, during my study, I got to live and work in Berlin & London, Europe’s two most vibrant music cities. After I started to tour intensively throughout the UK and northern Europe, with my London-based band The Gulls, my fascination for different cultures and languages started to evolve big time. I’m now very much looking forward to pass this fascination onto my students at iTalki and I can’t wait!

I was a bit sceptical before I bought my first lesson with Bob as he hadn't given many lessons here on iTalki. But I have really learnt a lot. I have learnt many new words and expressions and he helps me to become more fluent in Dutch. Highly recommended!

Bob speaks English and German, which is super helpful to me as I begin learning Dutch. He's very fun to talk with and speaks so clearly in Dutch that even I can understand him! I recommend Bob as an excellent teacher and have already put him on my repeat list on iTalki.

Bob is a great teacher, good at explaining things and I'm starting to feel more confident speaking Dutch.

Ik ben heel blij dat ik de profil van Bob tegengekomen ben. Bob is een toffe gozer die weet wat hij doet. Hij is vriendelijk, professioneel, en stelt jou vanaf het alle eerste moment op je gemak. Hij is altijd goed voorbereid en de vlotte lessen met hem zijn spontaan en leuk, en er is nooit sprake van gebrek aan gespreksstof. Bovendien waardeer ik enorm de terugkoppeling die ik van hem elke les krijg.

Bob is great tutor, lovely guy and a perfect conversations partner! Would highly recommend to anyone who wants to develop their spoken Dutch, as Bob will give you the space + time to express yourself as well as correct you at just the right moments :)
