Hey people, nice to meet you! Thank you for your time. Let me introduce myself! I'm Ines Veldkamp, a Croatian/Dutch girl who is currently living in Colombia. I studied international relations and international humanitarian action, especifically focussing on Latin American countries. I am very interested in anything that has to do with languages and cultures. Furthermore, I love cooking and reading about interesting topics, as well as going out with friends.
Me as a Teacher
As a teacher, I am a very pleasant person with a lot of patience and a great ability to listen and adapt to your needs and wishes. I am also a very spontaneous person that never minds a joke or a funny story to break the ice! My ultimate goal is to make you feel comfortable, so we can have a productive and nice class.
My lessons & teaching style
I can provide my own methods, usually based on grammarly topics or specific themes. I am also willing to follow your books and programs if you have one. I can teach from a beginners level to an advanced level, focusing on whatever you prefer, such as grammar, pronunciation, fluency, or simple conversational speech, in any of the four languages: Dutch, Croatian, English, and Spanish. I can also help you with improving your business level in English, Dutch, and Spanish. In every class I like to discuss interesting facts about the language and culture of the country/ies where they speak the language.

I’ve had my fourth lesson with Ines and it’s really accelerated my language learning! I really appreciate a mix of conversational time and grammar practice, and how attentive Ines is to patterns of error and prepared with exercises to work on those grammar areas in the next lesson.

I’ve been practicing with Ines for about two weeks, and she’s really helping me to make progress with speaking Dutch. She’s very thoughtful and knowledgable. I will be continuing to study with her. :)

I had a great first lesson with Ines. She asked a lot of good questions and we started to work on speaking fluency, which is my goal for studying with her. I look forward to more lessons!
