After a career in business (8 years Unilever and 6 years as headhunter at Executive Search agency Korn Ferry International), I changed course, because I wanted to work with children. In 2012 I followed the postgraduate course Master Special Educational Needs (Master SEN) and successfully completed it.
In 2015 I started my own RT practice and since 2016 I have been registered with the National Professional Association for Remedial Teachers (LBRT).
I accompany pupils both at my home and at various schools in the area including Winford in Leiden, the Montessorischool and the Noordwijkse School in Noordwijk The American School of The Hague in Wassenaar and the Rijnlands Lyceum (IB) in Oegstgeest.
I specialize in children with (severe) reading and / or spelling problems or dyslexia as well as children with (serious) math problems or dyscalculia. I also supervise many children who, besides learning problems, have behavioral and / or socio-emotional problems, for example:
- Fear of failure
- Concentration problems
- RD4 diagnostics (a diagnostic tool that provides insight into the calculation level of a child, both at the group level and at the level of action)
- Reading comprehension
- Learn to learn:
- Homework support
- Homework planning
- Learning appropriate learning strategies
