History as a subject is more than just learning a list of dates and names by heart. Knowledge matters - of course - but so do skills. That is why I train students in comprehensive reading, analyzing sources, and to think historically - i.e. to think in terms of cause and effect, continuity and discountinuity, and different persectives on the same event.
As a history teacher, I have taught at both university and secondary school levels. I also have experience in bilingual teaching (Dutch and English). Thanks to my educational background and academic speciality, I can also venture into other fields such as Philosophy, Civics and Political Science. Currently I teach Civics at Luzac Lyceum Amsterdam.
