Jolanta, student

"After various group lessons I started lessons with Kat to prepare for the NT2-II exam. Katerina is an excellent teacher and the individual focus really helps to make fast progress. She is also fun to talk to and provides lot of up-to-date and useful material outside normal "boring" course books :) The lessons via Skype worked even better than what I expected. I can definitely recommend to anyone in need of Dutch lessons!"

Anu, student

"Kat has been a great to work with, tailoring lessons to my skill level and teaching in an engaging and reactive (to my varying abilities) way. In addition, she is flexible in making times and dates work for her clients, and manages to make me enjoy my Dutch lessons, so that I dont' dread them. A high achievement indeed!"

Robert, student

"Kat is a very good teacher of Dutch language. She has a lot of experience teaching Dutch to many different nationalities. She adapts the lesson plans according to the student's capacity and knowledge, which is very helpful when learning a foreign language. She is very personable which encourages the student to speak the language without any inhibitions. Katerina is very hard working and dedicated to her work. She provides both online courses and on site courses. In spite of her busy schedule she always tries to adjust to the student's schedule. She has incorporated traditional language learning tools and more recent on line tools to enhance her teaching methods. 
I would highly recommend Katerina to any one who wants to learn Dutch."

Gowri, student

"Kat is an excellent Dutch language teacher. Besides a fluid curriculum, she comes up with creative ways such as through games, music and stories to teach the rules of Dutch language to non-native speakers while at the same time being informative. She is also very personable and listens to the needs of her students in order to cater to their needs and interest in the Dutch language."

Priya, student

"Kat is an excellent tutor who possesses all the qualities required to teach. She is very knowledgeable in the Dutch language and in other subjects. Katerina is very patient, passionate, friendly and upbeat. She is always well-prepared. The lessons are never boring as she uses various kinds of material and takes into consideration the student’s likes and dislikes. 

I am currently taking lessons with Kat via Skype and I could not be happier. 
I would highly recommend Kat to anyone interested in learning the Dutch language whether it is at the beginner’s level or at a higher level."

Solange, student

Dank Kat habe ich den Zauber der niederländischen Kultur, vor allem der modernen Literatur, entdeckt und viel interessantere Dinge über die Niederlande erfahren als aus Lehrbüchern. Ihr Unterricht war anders als in klassischen Kursen, und in der Zeit, in der sie mich unterrichtet hat, habe ich große Fortschritte gemacht. Ich kann sie Leuten, die nicht nur Vokabeln büffeln, sondern die Niederlande mit allen Sinnen erfahren wollen, wärmstens empfehlen.“

Dita, student

„Kat ist eine wunderbare Lehrerin. Sie ist sehr geduldig und bereit, alles wieder und wieder zu erklären. Ich empfehle sie von ganzem Herzen!"

Petra, student

„Ich kann Kat nur empfehlen. Ich habe persönliche Erfahrung sowohl mit Gruppen- und Privatlektionen als auch mit dem E-Learning. Eine freundliche Art, eine hohe Professionalität und immer ein Lächeln auf dem Gesicht. ;-)"

Lenka, student

"I've been taking private Dutch courses from Kat for 6 months, I honestly find her training style very efficient, fun and also flexible. She's been using a blend of several Dutch study material, which has been very effective in teaching the foundation, grammar and vocabulary. I also really appreciate her for delivering the classes online on Skype. That makes our courses independent of location, which helps during the times I travel quite often. I can certainly recommend Katerina as a Dutch language tutor."

Emre, student

"I am proud of having been taught by such a wonderful teacher as Kat! I have become well acquainted with her since I started learning Dutch language and I come to know many positive qualities that define Katerina. Thanks to her excellent teaching abilities in addressing the needs of the student, I very much enjoyed every lesson I have taken. Her dedication in teaching and extensive talent in multiple languages impresses me. 
Besides her resourceful academic qualifications, she has excellent personality who is always willing to establish a good friendship. She is also a good-humoured, open-minded and helpful individual, with whom I found very enjoyable and productive way of learning a foreign language. Her ability to put on a cheerful face during lessons is what I appreciate much about her."

Indira, student

"I took both private and group lessons at Kat's and enjoyed both. She works with different books and different material, easily detects your strengths, weeknessess and interests and plans her classes the way that they are most effective and also most fun - both in private but also in group lessons! 

She is also very flexible and understanding, nice and easy to talk to. Eventhough she is "fun" she never looses focus and always stays professional. Regarding time planning etc she always trys to find the best solutions. 

I would recommend her classes any time to anyone! She will always find the right studying style and material for you, no matter if you want to study dutch casually for daily life in Holland or if you need to learn dutch very fast for work, integration etc."

Hanna, student

"I have had Dutch lessons from Kat and found her very efficient tutor. Katerina has special ways of coaching with examples which make it easier for people from any background and any level to understand and practice Dutch. She is friendly, polite and has good sense of humor. I have had lessons from other institutes as well but I could see clear difference in improvements when I studied with Katerina. 

I would highly recommend Katerina to anyone who is keen on learning Dutch fast while having some fun."

"Kat is an excellent teacher. She is also very friendly and keeps encouraging you to learn Dutch. The first few minutes of every lesson include talking about activities from one's daily life in Dutch, which helps one to improve one's speaking skills. I would definitely recommend her ,if anyone is seriously interested in learning Dutch,more specifically, if someone wants to improve one's communication skills in Dutch."

Neeraj, student

"I haven't made so much progress with Dutch in past 3 years as I made in last 4 months while I am taking Dutch lessons from Katerina. Because I travel a lot, I take her 'virtual' lessons over Internet and Skype. It is very good and intensive 1 to 1 lectures and I can do it from any place in the world. 

Katerina is very knowledgeable about Dutch language and culture and has very good tution skills, she can explain everything very clearly and finds the right pace for anybody to easily follow the subject. Taalservice Utrecht rocks!"

Antonio, student

"Katerina is an excellent linguist and a highly talented
teacher of languages. Katerina is highly flexible, always ready to adapt to my difficult and ever changing time schedule.
She is very resourceful, keeps coming up with new teaching material so
lessons are very exciting and interesting. Whenever I raise a question
about this or that expression, she will provide the answer and add a
host of related words, synonyms and phrases to help plant the word
into my brain. She also knows a lot about the Netherlands, both the
country and its people and shares this information regularly - so even
during my first visit I didn´t feel a foreigner.
I have never had a better language teacher."
