About meMy name is Mary van den Brandt and I am a Dutch national. I have a master's degree in French language and culture, with specialization in second language learning and teaching (applied linguistics) and an FSEA Module 1 certificate (a Swiss certificate in adult and continuing education). I have been teaching language skills to adults for many years. I have been living and working in the Geneva area since late 2008. Additionally I develop language learning materials.
I am really passionate about providing adults with new language skills. I recognise that every client has his own existing knowledge, learning style and potential that need to be catered for.
Having learnt the French language as an adult myself, I am very aware of its specific difficulties and intricacies that a native speaker would tend to take for granted. I am well practiced in explaining such difficulties in English as well as in Dutch and French.
