Welcome to Franca Berkers Remedial Teaching

In my practice in Veldhoven I work mostly with pupils in primary and secondary education, as well as adults who come to me for support with their Dutch language skills. Remote support (via video calling) is also possible. 

For primary school students I provide:
  • Guidance in the field of technical reading, reading comprehension, spelling, grammar, writing and arithmetic.
  • Teaching strategies for planning and structuring (home) work.
  • Preparation for the Cito (final) tests.
  • Help with overcoming performance anxiety.
  • Strategies for accepting and understanding (and dealing with) disorders or disabilities, such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, ADD, ADHD, PDD-NOS, Asperger syndrome, NLD, etc.
For secondary school students I provide:
  • Homework assistance in Dutch and mathematics A and B.
  • Guidance on making summaries, writing papers and studying for tests.
  • Help with preparation for final exams in general, and in particular for certain specific subjects: Dutch and mathematics A and B for both vmbo and havo.
  • Teaching strategies for planning and structuring (home) work.
  • Help overcome performance anxiety.
  • Strategies for accepting and understanding (and dealing with) disorders or disabilities, such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, ADD, ADHD, PDD-NOS, Asperger syndrome, NLD, etc.

Other areas I help with:
Guidance in learning Dutch as a second language (NT2), focusing on vocabulary, pronunciation, sentence structure, fluency and spelling.
Schools can also call on me to support children with learning and behavioural problems.
