Until the start of the COVID 19 crisis, I was teaching both online and in a language institute. But since the start of the crisis, I have been teaching online full time. I´ve always loved meeting people and talking to people. So, working as a teacher was a logical step. By now, I have taught more than 2000 online classes and received training in NT2 teaching from the University of Leuven. My students tell me they like my classes because I am patient, have a sense of humor and because I make them feel comfortable in speaking the language that we are learning.
With beginners, I like to use a structured approach that focuses on all aspects of the language. With advanced students, it depends on their goals. Sometimes I use a structured approach, but if they are going for a job interview, want to be able to communicate better with family/school/…, or have other specific goals, my classes will be very different. I will also adjust the classes to the learning style of every student.
I enjoy myself when I teach and my students do too. If you have fun while you learn, you´ll learn faster and stay motivated. I also get a lot of satisfaction out of helping my students reach their goals. I've helped people get a better job, have more fun in Belgium and the Netherlands, pass exams such as CNaVT, SELOR and inburgeringsexamen. If you need some help, I´ll be happy to assist.

Eric optimally adapts the lessons to my individual needs. The hours fly by in the most positive way. It is interesting and fun. Even when I find very little time to learn, the lessons with Eric always motivates me to keep on learning. And that's what I think sets Eric apart from an average teacher.
