My name is Mandy de Waal. I grew up in De Kwakel and now live with my cats Gijs and Boris in Kudelstaart. After my master in Applied Language Sciences with a specialization in NT2 (VU Amsterdam), I started working at TU Delft and the University of Leiden. And from May 2020 at Tupkertaaltraining! I have also worked as a content writer at a publisher of online career orientation methods for high school. It gives me great satisfaction to help people on their way in the Netherlands. I love language and like to get in touch with people from all over the world. In my lessons I find interaction and good energy important. Together we go for it, we have interesting conversations and we learn from (and about) each other!
