My name is Pippa Quinn and I am 16 years old. I am a student at the International School of Breda and I am currently in DP1. 

I speak English and Dutch fluently as I take both of these subjects at higher level in my DP program.

I live in the centre of Breda.

I enjoy looking after children, playing hockey and running (sprinting). 

If you are not looking for a babysitter but for a tutor for your child/children I can help her/him with their homework, I will be more than happy to do this.

Are you looking for a licensed Dutch tutor?
My name is Jan Zweekhorst and I am a licensed Dutch teacher with a strong track record. During my long career teaching at different Dutch schools, I have taught at both Primary and Secondary level. In the last couple of years I already have taught Dutch to several ISB students from a wide range of nationalities, helping them to improve their grades, or to move from Dutch B to Dutch A in record time.
Testimonial: “My husband and I asked Jan to help our son Daniel (MYP2) when he was still in Dutch B. For me it was important that Daniel could speak Dutch fluently, because it would be so much easier for him to feel at home in The Netherlands. I am happy to say that Daniel moved to Dutch A in a record time and started to score good grades in Dutch A after a few months already. We know Jan as a very dedicated and patient teacher and Daniel likes him very much. We can truly recommend Jan Zweekhorst.”

Hello, my name is Annabel Quinn and I am a student in DP1. When I first moved to The Netherlands I had major trouble communicating in the Dutch language, and so I decided to find a tutor that could help. Birgitte was one of the most supporting, helpful yet challenging tutors I have had experience with thus far. She was excellent in explaining and visualising Dutch words, whilst also making it appropriate and entertaining for my age. This is the reason why I recommend Birgitte as a Dutch tutor for non-native speakers.
