Pieter van der Vorm studied Dutch in Utrecht, specialising in ‘modern literature’. From 1996 to 2014 he taught Dutch at universities in Ankara, Kuala Lumpur and Vienna. In Kuala Lumpur he gained his first experiences as a teacher in IB; in Vienna he taught Dutch A to students of various international schools. From 2013 to 2018 he worked for IBID, as a teacher and as coordinator of the SSST programme.
The students Pieter van der Vorm supervised achieved excellent results. Pieter attaches great value to a personal and flexible way of coaching. He likes to discuss the individual possibilities and interests of the student; differentiation is important – while of course the attainment targets and learning objectives are kept in mind.
Response from parents:
“You got the best out of both our children who are completely different. You are patient but firm and are able to create a dialogue with each child. Thank you!” (Fam. Juurlink, Vienna)
