Gerdientje can provide good guidance to students in applying structure and focus in their thesis, and help with the explanation and practical processing of feedback. In addition, she coaches students in planning and working efficiently on their thesis, and in dealing with, for example, stress, procrastination or concentration problems. Gerdientje works in two regions; both in South Holland – The Hague, Leiden, Rotterdam – and in Utrecht and also online.
