Mathilde Broeks

Mathilde Broeks read law at the University of Groningen from which she graduated in 2011.

Mathilde has had a passion for writing stories and word puns for as long as he can remember. After completing her studies, she combined her work in the legal profession with Dutch tutoring and began volunteering with immigrants. It didn’t take long before she decided to swap her job as a legal editor for a career in teaching. She enrolled in a teacher training programme at VU University Amsterdam and the rest is history.

Mathilde’s ideal class is one of creativity, imagination, funny puns and humorous uses of the Dutch language. She loves it when her students discover that Dutch isn’t boring or atrocious, but supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

Besides her love for the Dutch language, Mathilde also enjoys singing, dancing and cycle racing.
