Hello, my name is Elsa, and I’m originally from the Netherlands.
Apart from my love for the English language, I have a passion for languages in general. I'm conversational in Italian and German, and I've just started learning Russian. Expressing yourself in another language is magical, and you learn to see the world through different eyes, and that is what I believe teaching English is about.
In my spare time I like doing some gardening on my balcony and playing my saxophone, and I absolutely love dinosaurs, international etiquette, and Puccini operas. I've studied English Language and Culture in Groningen, and I minored in both linguistics and Italian.
The past few years I've taught business English at a vocational college for IT guys and regular English at a highschool. I love watching my students grow, and assisting them in becoming more confident speakers of English.
