Hi, My name is Pia. I am originally from Finland, and trained as a teacher. For 13 years I lived, studied and worked in the UK. That was when I got interested in teaching English.
After becoming CELTA-certified to teach English to the speakers of other languages in 2007, I have taught children and adults, both privately and in groups, in England, Mozambique, Finland and, for the past three years, also in the Netherlands. I enjoy it, when I see students gaining confidence in speaking and expressing themselves in English. Ultimately, that is what it is all
about: to be able to communicate your own ideas and opinions to others.
I love travelling, and I have done that in all continents, except Australia. Needless to say, Australia is one of my top travel destinations for the future. In one of my travels (to North Korea), I met my Dutch husband. That connection brought me to Emmeloord, where we now live. I am now on my journey to learn the Dutch language, and would be very happy to help youon your journey of learning English.
