Marijke Tupker

MARIJKE TUPKER

Marijke Tupker is founder of Tupkertaaltraining and has over twenty years experience as a Dutch language teacher. She is a native Dutch speaker with a strong command of English and Italian, Marijke has specialized in language training for both native and non-native speakers since 2000. Marijke has taught a wide variety of students, from beginners to advanced learners, and has worked with students from all kinds of backgrounds and from all over the world. Her lessons are professional and structured, but she greatly enjoys improvisation in class. She likes her lessons lively and interesting.

Over the years Marijke has mastered the ability to respond to her students’ individual needs. Marijke uses humorous exercises that attempt to incorporate the individual experiences of her students. In addition to the more conventional material, she uses a wide range of other sources that provide the students with more knowledge of Dutch culture, customs and society  such as books, movies and blogs. Marijke’s primary aim is to make sure her students are able to confidently communicate in Dutch.

ERNA ROERHORST

I’m Erna Roerhorst, native Dutch speaker and born and raised in The Netherlands. I’ve been teaching English, French and Dutch for the past years. Besides my daily job as an experienced language trainer in secondary school I enjoy teaching Dutch to our students at Tupkertaaltraining. Aside from my experience in education I have also been employed as a consultant in many different companies.

I teach because it is fun and I love to see our students develop their language proficiency in Dutch each and every lesson. In our effective lessons time flies and students are eager to learn more and more. Our students take pleasure in learning from me but also from the other students. Our interactive lessons show fast results and encourage students to speak Dutch and understand our Dutch culture.

Hope to see you at Tupkertaaltraining, gezellig!

ELLY LANCKER

My name is Elly Lancker. I’m a trainer Dutch as a second language at Tupkertaaltraining. I love the diversity of my work since I meet so many different people from all over the world. Each person brings its own culture, stories, personality and background. We can learn so much from each other which always gives me energy to do this work. I am an enthusiastic teacher and I always try to create a motivated, hard working group in which we all feel as good as possible. This helps to achieve the most!

Before I became a teacher NT2, I took my academic Masters degree in Economics and worked at the University of Amsterdam as a student adviser, programme coordinator and coordinator of the selection procedure for BSc and MSc in Medicine.

I am married and I have 2 wonderful childeren. We live in a small village where in summer we hear frogs and owls.

I hope to meet you at Tupkertaaltraining!
