Hello my name is Alice, native speaker English, born in Germany, grew up in a picturesque village by the sea called Portmarnock, in Ireland, moved to South America and am now living in the beautiful province of Over Ijssel for the past 5 years.
Before teaching I worked in the business and tourism industry in Ireland. After which I moved to South America, studied pedagogy whilst doing voluntary missionary work.
I have been teaching English to all age groups for the past 10 years and am currently teaching at primary schools in Over Ijssel. I enjoy the interaction and buzz that comes from teaching English and I am tickled pink when my students realise that I do speak “een klein beetje” Nederlands and they try to teach me Dutch.
It’s great and very rewarding to be part of and observe the growing process whatever the age of the student. Students like plants need water to grow, I hope to be able to assist more people blossom in their English language skills.
I love nature, music, walking and salsa dancing and can’t wait to eat a real Irish fry again especially Denny’s sausages.
