Fulltime Dutch coach and teacher who can't wait to talk to you! 🇳🇱
italki teacher since Apr 4, 2022
Hoi! My name is Renato and I live in the Netherlands where I was born and raised. I love teaching and coaching and have been doing that for over two decades. And I love people. Most of all: talking to people and meeting new people. And what I love even more is helping people by using my talents and skills.
I would love to help you learn to use the dutch language in your everyday life: speaking and understanding and of course reading and writing if that's what you would want to learn.
In my everyday life I am a fulltime CrossFit coach, personal trainer and mindset coach. I am also an entrepreneur and run several international online businesses. I am married and have two teenage children.
Me as a Teacher
If you are looking for very formal teacher I am not your guy. I believe strongly in conversation style teaching and learning, structured and effective of course, but centered around you as a student, your goals and interests and with fun and spontaneity in high regard. We can talk about current events, the news, we can read news articles together, read books even or engage in any activity you prefer to learn the dutch language. I am a dutch native speaker and speak english (C2), german (A2) and french (A1) and am currently learning spanish right here on iTalki. I have been teaching and coaching 1-on-1 for over two decades and I am confident that we can accomplish your language goals!
My lessons & teaching style
I offer a 30 minute trail lesson in which we get to know each other and where I can gauge your level of proficiency in the dutch language. We will discuss your language goals and play a fun game to start learning. My 45 minute and 60 minute lessons are centered around your language goals. They are filled not only with teaching and coaching the dutch language but also with positive energy and enthousiasm. And laughter. The magical ingredient to life.
I offer the following lesson styles:
+ conversation lessons -> focus on practical conversation in real life situations using roleplay and lots of talking :-)
+ reading lessons -> let's read toghether, from news articles to... Dutch comic books!

Renato is a great teacher! The first lesson went very well. He puts you just "inside the action". I recommend him if you want to learn while having fun. Thank you, Renato!
