The Unique Pro Series ft. Judit Bartos of Dutch of Course

Thank you for the compliment. It’s nice to hear I look calm. I am not sure if I am shy. I can be like a cat sometimes, I love to observe and watch people interact. When I feel at ease (it takes some time for me to ‘blend in’), or when I feel I have something I would like to ask or say, I will speak up!
I hope so! I hope they see me, Judit, not a teacher who is called Judit. A while ago I had my last lesson with two lovely children I had been teaching in-house. I had been teaching these siblings for almost two years and after my last class with Andrew and Hannah they surprised me with lovely presents: a little book they made together with drawings and lovely words about me, a huge bouquet of flowers and… a mango. I told them I love to eat mango and I usually brought a bag of dried mango to share with them. I don’t think many teachers receive a mango during their last class 😉 It was heart-warming and I feel the mango was given to Judit, the one who likes to joke around, listen to their stories and eat dry mango together, not just teacher Judit.
Let’s conclude with some simple questions:
Bio: Judit Bartos loves to help and motivate people who are serious about mastering Dutch. She started teaching at elementary schools 19 years ago, and also taught Dutch at several schools in Amsterdam and Utrecht. In 2004 she founded her first company Les op Maat, which offers private lessons for children, teenagers and adults. Currently she is teaching expats (individually, in groups and in-company training). Her teaching style has been described as creative, fun and well-structured.
