I am a bilingual speaker of Dutch and English with an extensive academic background in cross-linguistic and cross-cultural communication. I hold a bachelor's degree in English and a master's degree in Applied Linguistics and am currently employed as an English teacher. My academic experience has equipped me with expert skills to write for different audiences and purposes, and I always bear the appropriate tone, style and register in mind. In addition, as a teacher, I have gained valuable experience in proofreading, correcting and editing (academic) papers. However, not only can I deliver accurate and high-quality texts, I also have a great awareness of the cross-cultural considerations that need to be made to guarantee professional translations (English - Dutch and Dutch - English). I am currently fully available for new opportunities to share my skills and, as a teacher and freelancer, deadlines are sacred to me.
