At the start of the 2019 school year, our daughter had major school problems. She attended group 8
classes at elementary school from Breda. The problems had started when she was in group 7 but her
teacher and the school had not alerted us as parents and especially not advised us.
Being French and using mainly French and English languages, our daughter had big problems
understanding and using Dutch. It also affected her math results as she was spending a lot of time
and energy translating what was requested.
The NIO test results were very bad; the level was around VMBO Kaderberoep. The interview with her
teacher in October 2019 concluded the same thing.
In early November 2019, we contacted Willy to ask for her services. We have agreed for two
afternoons for the homework support and one private lesson per week. With 7 to 8 hours per week,
the results improved very quickly. A very good contact have been quickly established between Willy
and our daughter and the progress has been spectacular according to her primary school teacher.
Our daughter was very happy and relax when going to work with Willy. She worked with Willy on
language, grammar and mathematics. In February 2020 the results of the intermediate exams were
much better and were at the HAVO / MAVO level. The exams of May 2020 were cancelled; it is these
results of February 2020 that allowed her to be admitted to Markenhage College at the HAVO /
MAVO level. The 2020/2021 school year is starting and our daughter is very excited and happy
because she will be taking the classes she was dreaming of.
Without the professionalism, patience and kindness of Willy, coupled with the efforts and goodwill of
our daughter, this would not have been possible.
