My siblings and I have been learning Dutch with Ria for the past 2 months. We wanted to start learning Dutch so that we can better communicate with our relatives from the Netherlands, Ria tailors our lessons for this goal. The lessons are structured (following a textbook) but she is always willing to bring in extra activities to supplement the content we have learnt. We particularly love how well Ria teaches the 3 of us on skype. The lessons are interactive and engaging and we all get to practice reading, speaking, and translating. We have thoroughly enjoyed our lessons and look forward to them each week. We would definitely recommend her to anyone else looking for Dutch lessons.

Ria and I have 1 lesson a week over skype, and I am really excited with the results so far. I have tried online courses such as Rosetta Stone and although I learned a little, nothing compares to having a patient teacher to carefully guide me and make me think for myself. Ria encourages you to think for yourself and checks in throughout every lesson make sure your understanding, welcoming questions if you don't. I would fully recommend this talented and kind lady if you are wanting to learn Dutch. I'm quite early on in my lessons but I'm excited to see where I will be in a years’ time looking at how much I have learnt so far.

Ria has gauged my Dutch competency levels well and is providing wonderfully tailored lessons and conversation. I am really grateful!

Ria is a very experienced Dutch teacher; her interpretation of Dutch grammar makes learning Dutch easier! I'd recommend her to whoever wants to learn Dutch! I'm only on 1/3 way of reaching A2 but I can already order food in a restaurant!

Ria Was absolutely fantastic in her tuition, I would absolutely recommend her to anyone else. I personally felt that Ria paid particular attention to my dyslexia as she gave me extra exercises and spent extra time explaining things which I particularly struggled with. I wouldn't hesitate at all in the future if I needed any help with learning Dutch further. She is more than happy to answer any questions that you have, and she will take time to explain so that you fully understand.

My first lesson went really well. I am very impressed with Ria's teaching methodology and her polite nature. Ria is an excellent teacher; I am able to understand her fully. Hope to learn fast. Regards, Vinit

I'm on my second lesson and I've already learned a tremendous amount. Ria is patient and very thorough. I'm extremely glad I have her as my teacher.

Ria is very patient with me and makes sure I understand before moving on to the next exercise. I am enjoying my sessions and feel confident that I will eventually speak good Dutch, I’m only on my 3rd session so I have a long way to go.

I am gaining a lot from Ria's very flexible and adaptive approach. She has tailored her choice of learning materials to suit both my level/experience and my learning style. She has been very quick to adapt lessons to focus on the areas I wish to strengthen. Overall, I'm learning a lot in a short space of time and have been given good opportunity to develop in my own time as much as is possible.

Ria was absolutely excellent with communication prior to our sessions. I am currently two sessions into my course and I’m thoroughly enjoying them. Ria is calm, understanding and puts you at ease. The lessons have been very enjoyable, and I have been surprised by how much I have learnt in that short space of time. I would absolutely recommend Ria to anyone considering Dutch lessons. Thank you!
