My name is Roger van den Akker and I live in Singapore. Before coming to Singapore I lived in many different countries where I went to school and in some of these countries I later on worked. My father was employed by a multinational company and that’s why I lived in all these different places.
I was born in the Netherlands but when I was 6 years old I moved to El Salvador in South America, where I lived for 5 years.
Then when I was 11 years old I lived in Hong Kong for 5 years.
After that we lived in Singapore for 2 and a half years.
Now after having worked in South East Asia for a number of years I live in Singapore again, I have a family and I am settled down.
Teaching is my passion, it’s great to see my students make progress and become self confident.
