Over deze les
I don't follow a book, but prepare all the materials to be individually and perfectly tailored to the student's needs. You are a unique person, so we can’t just follow a book that hasn’t been created for one person, but for many!
Before the first lesson, I will be in touch with the student to make sure I gather all the information needed: level, type of learner, personality to see which sorts of activities can be more engaging and obtain better and faster results.
The vocabulary will be the one used right now, so you don't waste your time learning words none uses anymore. Only relevant, up-to-date lessons to maximize your time and effort.
Come to the lesson full of energy, we’re going to make a great job together!

Perfect! Finding the right teacher to improve your ability to speak a language is never easy. But when I met Cristina I knew she would be able and capable to help me. And so she did. Cristina is a very funny, likeable and witty person with extensive knowledge on the English language. Usually, I never award anyone or anything with 5/5 stars, as I always believe things could be improved. For Cristina, however, I reckon that is not the case. She is the best teacher I have ever had!
- Reactie van Cristina : It's been great to meet Robbert. Apart from being a top-notch student - always taking feedback on board, really hard-working- he's got an excellent sense of humour. Sarcastic, ironic, hilarious. I've had a brilliant time. So long, Golden boy, and never stop shining!
Perfect! Ik vind Cristina een professionele en enthousiaste docente. Ze is geduldig, vriendelijk en weet structuur te houden in de les. Ze checkt na elke les waarmee ik verder aan de slag wil zodat de lessen blijven aansluiten op mijn niveau, wensen en interesses.
Twijfel je over online les krijgen? Dat deed ik eerst ook, maar het werkt super fijn. Waar nodig deelt Cristina het scherm met een filmpje, voorbeelden, uitleg of haar aantekeningen. Tijdens de les noteert ze haar aantekeningen en tussendoor of aan het einde bespreken we die en stuurt ze me die toe. Ik vind het relaxed online, het scheelt me reistijd en het is comfortabel vanuit huis.
- Reactie van Cristina : Esther is a lovely woman and a motivated student, taking notes, paying attention, being really active in class.
It's been a pleasure to meet her, I'm very lucky that she chose me!
Perfect! Cristina is a great teacher and her lessons were essential for me to be able to reach my goals. With just a couple months to study for the IELTS Academic, I contacted Cristina to help me train for the exam. Cristina prepared the content of the lessons, as well as the homework, with my needs in mind and this personalization truly helped me to work on the skills I had more trouble with. I got a great mark on my exam and working with her definitely made a positive impact on my performance. Her fun personality and friendliness also are a plus!
- Reactie van Cristina : Marina is a lovely student, very polite, friendly and pleasant. She always did her homework and took all feedback on board. I'm extremely proud of her great work, and her impressive results. Super
Perfect! I contacted Cristina to help my son with his writing skills. She turned out to be a passionate and excellent teacher. She is also very kind and flexible. I would highly recommend her!
- Reactie van Cristina : Lev is really intelligent, diligent, hard-working and a real pleasure to teach.
Perfect! Cristina is a very good teacher, she is patient, friendly, and she can explain things in a simple way. She is also very fun, I really like to talk to her.
- Reactie van Cristina : Vivica is absolutely lovely, well-behaved, sweet, hard-working, always giving me her undivided attention. What a great student! I really hope she feels the same about me, as I am giving her quite a lot of work all the time, which she will accept without a complaint. Thank you, Vivica, for being such a fantastic young adult!
Perfect! Ik ben zeer tevreden, vanaf het begin heb ik een duidelijke klik met haar.
Ze legt heel goed uit, werkt mijn opmerkingen uit en stuurt dat mij per
mail. Daar heb ik heel veel aan.
Ze is geduldig en laat mij uitpraten. Soms duurt het wat langer voor ik
op de juiste woorden kom, maar ze wacht altijd geduldig af. Wat mij ook
altijd opvalt : ze begrijpt altijd wat ik wil zeggen, ook al zit het vol
Afspraken over het cursusmoment verlopen ook prima. Zij houdt zich
precies aan de afspraken.
Vrijdag is onze laatste les. Dan heb ik even een pauze, maar zodra het
hier wat rustiger is overweeg ik om een vervolgcursus bij haar aan te
vragen. Kan ik nu nog niet overzien.
Perfect! Cristina was my teacher. She is very good but also fun. She is very flexible and understanding. She helps you if you don't understand and adjust the program to what you want to do or practice. She makes you easy and comfortable. She can explain awesome and she makes notes for you to practice which is very helpful. She really helped me boost my confidence for the FCE. I would definitely give her 5 stars. Thank you
Perfect! Mijn naam is Kelly en kom uit Nederland,
Ik was op zoek naar een Engelstalige docent voor mijn dochter. En we zijn uitgekomen bij Cristina.
Ze is een geweldige docent kan ook super om gaan met kinderen ze heeft mijn dochter Engels geleerd. En nu leert ze haar ook nog een Spaans we zijn al 2 jaar aan het leren met haar en het gaat super.
Nu moet ik zelf de Spaanse taal oppakken maar met Cristina gaat dat zeker goed komen. Bedankt voor alles! Van ons een dikke 5+.
- Reactie van Cristina : Teaching the little princess is so much fun, she is so cute! A bit shy sometimes, but making good progress and having a lot of fun with her! So happy that her mummy contacted me!
Perfect! Cristina is een uitstekende docent, ze levert op basis van je wensen echt maatwerk. Daarnaast is ze heel flexibel en super aardig.
Cristina is an excellent teacher, she offers tailor-made solutions based on your wishes. She is also very flexible and super nice.
5 sterren wat mij betreft.
- Reactie van Cristina : Eeke is a lovely woman, eager to learn and who absorbs everything really quickly. It is really nice to have met her, and I hope to continue our lessons for a long, productive time! I really hope she feels the same ;-)
Perfect! She can explain things in a very simple way. She is also really friendly and professional. Christina is a good teacher. I highly recommend her!
- Reactie van Cristina : It was really fun to teach Devit. She is really full of energy and willing to tell you so many things, which is great for the speaking practice! I really miss her! I hope to see you soon again, sweetheart and I do hope you enjoyed the lessons as much as I did!
Perfect! Cristina is a top-class English teacher. She is friendly, patient and has a good sense of humor. We have the lessons via Skype. To my surprise I haven't missed face to face contact at all. That's because she prepares her lessons so well and puts me at ease to have conversations in English. She tailor-makes each lesson, according to my level and interests. Besides, she provides me every week with meaningful feedback and challenging homework. It's a great pleasure to improve my English with the help of Cristina!
Perfect! Cristina is an extremely good Spanish teacher, she helped me a lot. At first I thought it would be harder to learn through webcam classes. But Cristina is so well prepared and professional in her classes which make them just as good as if she would have given them face to face. I would highly recommend her to everyone!
Perfect! She really helped me (and is still helping me) to be more confident about my grammatical skills. Explains the topics really clearly and always has her teaching materials ready days before the actual class. Actually prefered her classes over my teacher's class at my own school. So that should say enough;)
- Reactie van Cristina : Anouk will give you her 100% attention and commitment to the lessons. She will try her hardest every time, plus she's got a good sense of humour, too! I'm very happy to have been chosen as her teacher. Hopefully we will reach her goal together!
Perfect! I find Cristina an excellent teacher! It doesn't matter what we are talking about, all topics are interesting and exiting. I do appreciate her feedback during our conversation, she lets me know how I can improve my English. I highly recommend her as a teacher!
- Reactie van Cristina : It is a pleasure to teach Elena. She will be always eager to learn, will ask for lots of homework and always cooperates in class. Time flies in our lessons! I am so lucky to have been contacted by her!
Perfect! Perfect teacher!
I had a few Spanish lessons with Cristina and I wouldn't know where to start my review.
She was really prepared, sending me the lesson via email the day before, and offering to give me some homework after class.
I improved my Spanish a lot with her and I couldn't be any happier.
If you're looking for a real teacher and not high school students, search no further.
Perfect! Cristina is the best teacher I've ever had in my life.
She has been very friendly during the lessons, and I will book other lessons with her very soon.
You can't go wrong with her! I've improved my English so much only with 10 lessons.
- Reactie van Cristina : Very committed to the lessons, good fun, great student. Really happy to have met him!
Perfect! Cristina is a great teacher.
With her, I got to improve my English very quickly. She is very nice, friendly, and also very patient. Her way of explaining things is easy to remember, which helps a lot. I even sent her my homework via whatsapp and she corrected it in her free time, and really quickly. Thank you very much for your dedication!
Perfect! Cristina is a great teacher! She is besides very professional, also very friendly, patient and funny ! I’ve learned so much about the english language in such a short time (pronunciation, grammar and vocubalary). I’m very pleased I’ve met such a warm and friendly person. I would recommend her to everyone who’s looking for a English teacher.
- Reactie van Cristina : Bram is a great student, always in a good mood, ready to learn. Really pleasant, I'm very lucky to have met him!
Perfect! Cristina gave me great lessons. She gave me the confidence to pass the Toefl exam which I passed.
- Reactie van Cristina : Really hard-working, motivated and focused. Well done for passing your examination, you'll be a great teacher! Your hard work has paid off!
Perfect! Wow! Cristina, thank you for the tricks for learning. Cristina is very patient, friendly and you learn very quickly with her. I can't believe how much I learned in 2 lessons, and how much I will learn in the next lessons.
If you have to choose a teacher, definitely go for her!
Perfect! I am currently taking lessons with Christina. She is awesome! She is not only a good, funny and passioned teacher, but also a highly educated person with vast knowledge of many other languages and cultures. She can combine the reality with the knowledge that lies in the papers (because she does not use books)! By not using books you have the opportunity to search for the information and try to link it with something else that you have already learnt. In my country this is the highest way of studying and for that I am really grateful that she is my teacher!
- Reactie van Cristina : What can I say about her? she is super witty, funny and intelligent. She will get very far! As far as she wants.
Perfect! I'm really happy with my lessons! Apart from learning lots, Cristina will have something funny to say and we always share a laugh. She has adapted to my busy life to fit in the lessons, which I really appreciate. Really pleased with everything. I highly recommend!
- Reactie van Cristina : Super lovely student. He's very good fun and easy to teach!
Excellent! Cristina is a very nice teacher. The first class I told her I want to improve my conversation skills and enlarge my vocabulary. She always encourages me to talk, now I am more confident in expressing myself and I can talk more fluently. She is also patient in correcting my mistakes. She is a very warm teacher.
- Reactie van Cristina : Aya is a great student, always curious and eager to learn more. She comes every day full of energy and ready to absorb more. She's very motivated and understands things very quickly.
Perfect! Cristina is a passionate and excellent teacher. I am very happy I got to know her. She teaches me grammar, which I have a lot of difficulty with. But thanks to Cristina it is easier to understand. I would definitely recommend her if you have difficulty with English!
- Reactie van Cristina : Kaylee is a great student. Hardworking, always paying attention, and performing really well. The lessons are full of quite complex stuff, but she's grasping the concepts and absorbing the info quickly. I'm proud of being your teacher, as well as having the pleasure to have met her!

Sinds een tijdje volg ik lessen bij Cristina. Mijn ervaringen met haar zijn positief en ik ben zeer tevreden over de behaalde resultaten. Ze is prettig in de omgang en laagdrempelig in het contact wat het leren een stuk eenvoudiger maakt. Ze heeft veel geduld en haar programma is volledig afgestemd op jou wensen en behoeften. Daarbij kijkt ze naar je persoonlijke situatie en zijn er tussentijdse evaluaties om de voortgang in je ontwikkeling te monitoren. Ze is betrouwbaar in het nakomen van afspraken en flexibel in haar planning en beschikbaarheid. Voor mij is dat ideaal te combineren met werk en prive. Cristina is deskundig spreekt ook andere talen waaronder vloeiend Spaans. Ik kan haar zeer aanbevelen.
Ik geef Christina 5 uit 5 sterren omdat Christina precies aanvoelt waar ik sta in mijn Italiaans en wat ik nodig heb voor de volgende stap in de beheersing van de Italiaanse taal. Ik krijg net zoveel huiswerk als ik tijd heb en Christina is flexibel bij het inplannen van de lessen. Maar het belangrijkste is dat de lessen leuk zijn, ik denk dat ik daarom voor de derde keer weer terugkom voor de voorbereiding op mijn vakantie in Italie 🙂
I've always loved Italy and their language. I took an Italian course with Cristina to be able to communicate with the locals when I travel on my holidays. Really useful and fun! Now I enjoy my holidays even more!
I learn Spanish with Christina. It's always a pleasure. She is flexible, always good prepared and has a good sense of humor. You can ask her whatever you want and she will prepare the lesson in accordance with your needs. It is very important for me as I am a teacher as well and it is quite difficult to please me :)
Cristina is a great teacher ! She's very patient, the explanations are very clear and I've learned a lot.
Cristina heb ik een paar jaar geleden leren kennen, toen ze nog bij Booking.com werkte. Ze heeft voor mij een klacht afgehandeld en was hierin zo hulpvaardig en begripvol, dat we contact hebben gehouden. Ze is bijzonder lief en geduldig, waardoor ze een prima lerares is, wat eigenlijk en passie van haar is. Ze houdt ervan om mensen iets te leren, of dat nu in het Spaans is of met koken, ze vindt het allemaal leuk.
I learn Spanish with Christina. It's a pleasure. She is flexible, always good prepared and has a good sense of humor
I believe Cristina is the best teacher in Utrecht. I have had other lessons with other teachers but their teaching methods didn't exactly adjust to my needs.
I've passed the Cambridge University First certificate, I'm not sure if it would have possible without her help, useful tips and relevant advice.
I really recommend Cristina as a teacher. You can really trust she will try her hardest for you to pass or get a good mark in your exam!
Cristina fue mi profesora de inglés durante un año en España. Además de ser una gran profesional, es una persona muy cercana consiguiendo que el estudiar sea más divertido y que aumente tu interés en aprender. Tengo muy buenos recuerdos de ella!
Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true people will leave footprints in your heart. Cristina is like a stars, You don't always see them, but you know they're always there.
Cristina is amazing! I have to admit I am not the most dedicated student... I am more of the opinion “who wants to do more work after work???” However, Cristina has the magic way to make me focus and learn. She has an incredible way of teaching and great communication skills! She made me to look forward for my lessons after a busy day at work!
If you want to learn Spanish then look no further! Cristina is the best!
I met Cristina while I was at the university and she really passionate about teaching. She had plenty of students and all of them were really satisfied with her. I also had classes with her for a while and I strongly recommend her.
Cristina superfriendly ex colegue and good friend. She has very good and calm attitude. She has alot knowledge because of her experiences and she really know the way how to teach a person something which is necessary. Because she understand the situation clearly and making the action plan accordingly.Thumbs up!
Cristina was lange tijd mijn lerares Engels. Het beste aan haar is haar positieve instelling en haar verlangen om les te geven. Dankzij zijn ongelooflijke hulp kon ik de FCE in hetzelfde Oxford passeren. Bovendien kan je gevoel voor humor je leren terwijl je geniet
I have met Cristina 13 years ago and since then got to know her as a great friend, but also had an opportunity to observe her dedication and creativity with which she's been preparing and running lessons for her students.
Having travelled her whole life and living abroad for a big part of it, she is an infinitive source of fun stories and interesting facts, including extensive knowledge of football (sic!).
If you are looking for a clever, charismatic and fun teacher, you definitely just found one. Enjoy your lessons!
She was very patient friendly and nice to me.
I would recommend her to anyone. I am close to fluent in Spanish thanks to her.
Cristina is an excellent teacher.
I have been her student for a year and now I can speak almost fluent Spanish. I also had English courses in UK with her and her technique was perfect.
I would definitely recommend Cristina as a teacher.

Praat je deze taal vloeiend door je afkomst of omdat iemand jou deze taal heeft geleerd?
I speak Spanish as my mother tongue, English because I've lived half of my life in England and did my degree in English literature and TEFL, and Italian because it is a beautiful language, Tuscany is my most favourite place in the world and I was smitten! I completed a Masters in Italian language, it makes me really proud of myself.
Citeer een levend, historisch of fictief persoon die, volgens jou, hét symbool is dat de desbetreffende cultuur vertegenwoordigt!
Michelangelo's David! Pure beauty and perfection, it shows what you can make of a block of marble if you put your work, effort and mind into it!
Is er in deze taal een woord, uitdrukking, traditie of typisch soort gedrag dat je bijzonder of leuk vindt?
Because I teach three languages, I'd have to say three different things, right?
For English: "it's alright". It is the best way to remain impartial, politically correct and quintessentially English at all times.
For Spanish: Fiesta. Why not, party! there is only one life! And if you do party, make sure it is Spanish style.
For Italian: Principessa. Princess! What a beautiful word! I love it. We need beautiful words in this (sometimes) not so beautiful world.
Waarom is het belangrijk om deze taal te spreken, of het nou vanuit een academisch, professioneel of meer persoonlijk oogpunt is?
For English, because as a lingua franca it opens the door to so many possibilities, new worlds, new people, new adventures, apart from the work possibilities. For Spanish, apart from being beautiful, it is spoken in wonderful countries and you can communicate with the locals. As for Italian, you might pick up lots of girls if you are a man, you might get the boys at your feet if you are a woman, or alternatively, you can learn a Latin language that will make your life easier should you wish you continue learning some others from the same roots.
Wat is het lastigst aan deze taal waar het nemen van lessen bij kan helpen?
For English, it must be pronounciation vs spelling. For Italian and Spanish, definitely the vast amount of verbs, but practice makes perfect, and mastering a language is never boring, if you really want to learn it.
Kun je ons een leuke anecdote vertellen die te maken heeft met jouw beroep of jouw eigen schooltijd?
Fortunately I've got many, but I am particularly fond of this anecdote back in 2010. I was teaching in a private language school, evening lessons. I had this group of teenagers, I had just turned 29 at the time, and we had a great connection. At the end of the school year, my students bought me beautiful presents. When the parents came to collect their final results, they told me they had never seen their children buying presents for anyone so happily and excited. Then they told me that if I was not going to continue teaching for the next school year, then my students had said they didn't want to continue studying. It was me or none. Awww, how sweet.
Years later, we are still Facebook friends and they have become great young men and women, studying their degrees and enjoying life.
Help ons je een beetje beter te leren kennen door ons te vertellen over enkele reizen die je gemaakt hebt.
My last trip consisted of 5 weeks in three different countries: UAE, Thailand and Cambodia. Going from Dubai to Bangkok is mind-blowing. We visited Thailand all over, taking internal flights to make the most of our time. We bathed elephants, fed them, visited thousands of temples, went snorkelling for the first time ever, used the maniac tuc-tucs, took pictures that could make it to the National Geographic, etc. In Cambodia I saw still the aftermath of war, and how people are trying to rebuild everything and offer us their home country as our temporary home. They were really welcoming and friendly. Angkor Wat was fascinating, put it in your bucket list or must-do (or as you wish to call it) if you haven't seen it yet. Wonderful experience, unforgettable.
Wat maakt jou een Superprof, naast het feit dat je je kunt uitdrukken in verschillende talen?
I think I have always been a prof, anyway. I was born for this! Purely vocational. I remember teaching my dolls when I was around six or seven. I love this job, I've even done it for free. If you don't have the passion for this job, just don't even bother trying to pretend. You either have it or don't. The love for teaching is something that you cannot fake!
