Professional teacher & researcher in learning & innovation
I'm Ferdinand Brand. I have been a 'offline' teacher for many years. Nowadays I teach students and teachers in the Netherlands as a part-time job. Since 2019 I also started working as a researcher for our school in topics like professionalisation, effective teaching and learning and innovation. Besides that I also have my own business in helping students how to study more effectively based on science and I train teachers how to become better at their job. I recently also started a youtube channel to help people with their financial and personal growth. check it out, it in the links :)
I am a real psychology and science fanatic (aka nerd, I admit) and that's why I have done a lot of research in this area for my 'offline' students. I received my masters with special honours and got awarded the title top of the year graduate, a while ago (yeeh). I also trained a lot of salespeople in how to use psychology to increase their sales. I like to learn a lot and I think it's shows a little in my CV haha: I also have 3 bachelor degrees: in Marketing, Health care education and social science education. To top it all of I am a certified personal trainer (which I only use for my own training and nowadays not even that haha) and certified internet marketeer.
Hobbies: I like playing chess (although I am no magnus carlsen, but it helps me zone out) I like watching anime (I have talent for that, o.. and I practice some Japanese :D)
I hope you like my courses and if you have any kind of questions or feedback please let me know :)
