During the past 20+ years, I have worked with many students in many ways and settings. In 2019, I received my BKO certificate. I am driven by my passion to make a personal connection with students so that I can align my teaching-strategy to their abilities, interests and motivations. I try to make all students feel at ease (via humour and personal conversations) and challenge them to perform at their maximum level. I have translated my passion for education into a teaching philosophy that consists of six main components: learning by doing,  safe and stimulating learning environment,  focus on input,  learning by feedback, not by grades,  encourage a critical attitude, and  focus on individual interests.
