Amsterdam School of the Arts
My first language is Dutch. I grew up in Holland and followed my passion in dance. I graduated from the Amsterdam dance academy and moved to the United States where I taught at Mills college (Oakland) and worked as a resident artist for an arts organization in San Francisco, teaching at public schools for 5 years. I love teaching different age groups, from either preschoolers to 3rd grade, middle or high school to college students and adults. My best quality is the joy I bring and enthusiasm with an enormous ability to demonstrate technique with clarity and patience.
I went back to school in the Bay Area to learn webdesign and acquired computer science and web production skills. I received certifications through Vista College and have been working as a freelance web designer for 8 years. Currently I work for a magazine publishing company as a web production artist. I have excellent skills and experience in Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Flash, HTML, CSS and frontend web design.
As a native speaker in Dutch, I translate Dutch to English for online clients, I speak, read and think in Dutch at home, which eases my longing for Dutch windmill cookies and winter ice skating. Learning Dutch is not easy and I can help you with grammar and sentence structure. I can teach you basic to advanced conversation skills and will inspire you to ride a bike on the cobblestone streets in Amsterdam.
I'm positive, reliable and outgoing and I see the best qualities in each student. My first language is Dutch. I grew up in Holland and followed my passion in dance. I graduated from the Amsterdam dance academy and moved to the United States where I taught at Mills college (Oakland) and worked as a resident artist for an arts organization in San Francisco, teaching at public schools for 5 years.

My 11 year old daughter wanted to learn Photoshop so we asked for tutoring. Tedje came on time, walked my daughter through the application, taught her the ins/outs of it efficiently in 2 hours. My daughter loved the tutoring experience and have learned a lot from Tedje. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! Thank you Tedje!!!
Tedje is very knowledgeable, I highly recommend her for helping to create a website or in updating and maintaining one.
Tedje was great. I joined a Dutch Club and have been wanting to learn a little bit of Dutch. She provided a few key phrases that I should know, and sure enough, at our next party I was able to interact with people. Boy were they surprised when I started greeting them in Dutch! She speaks fluent, natural Dutch.
Thank you for listing Tedje. She helped me solve a challenge with Dreamweaver, that took hours of precious study time, until she solved the problem in a few minutes. Just a note to anyone taking an online webdesign class- plan on having this tutor. Tedje is great! Be encouraged.
I had a great tutorial with Tedje and learned all that I was hoping to in the session that we had! I highly recommend her! She is knowledgeable and professional and easy to work with! Thank you for a wonderful experience! I will recommend Tedje, and I will recommend Wyzant!
I am learning Dutch for work and Tedje is helping me become more efficient in learning. She is very helpful and willing to go the extra mile to customize my lessons to cater with my work lingo. I enjoy our weekly lessons very much and look forward to having a full conversation with her in Dutch in the near future.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have years of experience in Photoshop. I have taught Photoshop at the College Of Marin and at the Sir Francis Drake High School. I have taught fine artists and photographers basic and advanced tools to enhance their images.
As a web designer, I use Dreamweaver on a daily basis. Its the most used tool for creating efficient web pages and website development. I have a certification in multimedia web design and production through Vista College. I have taught Dreamweaver at the College Of Marin and to private clients that needed to learn to make updates to their sites. I have designed basic step by step courses in Dreamweaver for middle school students (San Francisco Unified School district) who wanted to create their own image galleries and online news letters.
I'm a native Dutch language speaker. I translate Dutch content to English, and English to Dutch for online clients. I teach Dutch to many students with Dutch heritage and created a quick tip language guide for travelers visiting Holland. Recently I became the Vice-President of the Netherlands American Society of Southern California which is a Dutch social club that provides a social environment for persons of Dutch descent or persons who have an active interest in the Netherlands.
I have years of knowledge in General Computer skills -- from setting up a home computer and basic network to installing software, antivirus, plugins, and access to the internet and trouble shooting. I am certified in computer information systems since 2000. I have extensive knowledge in Microsoft Word and other home and business applications.
I've studied HTML along side with the required web development studies at Vista College. It is important to know HTML even if you are proficient in Dreamweaver. I teach hand code HTML before I teach WYSIWYG web builders. I have trained co-workers at an advertising and publishing company basic to intermediate HTML needed to create modules for Content Management Systems.
I've taught and performed salsa dance for 10 years. I have taught basic Latin dance workshops for 5th and 6th grade, middle school and high school students. I enjoy watching students improve after 3 to 5 classes, and have seen those that say they can't dance gain enthusiasm and dedication for this exciting and rhythmic dance style.
I have 15 years experience in web design. I have taught html, css and web design at the College Of Marin and at the Sir Francis Drake High School. My online clients include e-commerce, small businesses, publishing and design companies, real estate, artists, musicians, photographers and non-profit organizations.
