How does Evelyn work?

  • Her training sessions provide many opportunities for participants to try out and practice new skills, so they can use them immediately in their own teaching.
  • Her way of working is concrete and practical, with an eye for detail.
  • She uses imaginative examples and activities aimed at grasping the essence of theoretical concepts.

Evelyn works with small groups, or with individuals. Each programme is tailor-made. She investigates in detail what would be of most use to her participants, and designs a fitting programme.
