Patient and Dedicated German Tutor

I am a German native speaker and full-time German tutor since 2011. Having studied English, Spanish, French and German, I am enthusiastic about languages and people. My aim is to make the German language and culture accessible for everyone, especially young students.

Here are 7 reasons why you should take your German lessons with me:

I teach everything German. I am very versatile. German for beginners, advanced German, Business German, conversational lessons, grammar lessons, technical German for a certain profession… you name it I teach it.
Time and the teaching location are very flexible. We can do the lesson at your place, in your office or in my home office. In addition to that all types of lessons are also available online. With new technology we can do not only speaking exercises, but also writing and listening exercises and even little games -as if I were sitting next to you.

The right teaching materials are crucial. I will choose a course book that’s right for your level and individual requirements. In addition, I will spice up your lessons with a variety of additional tailored exercises, films and audio clips to inspire you to talk German.

I get it. Learning German can be frustrating sometimes. With my patient encouragement and gentle persistence, I will guide you through the learning process and have you speaking like a pro in no time. And we will even have fun during the lesson.

Qualification and Experience is important. My educational background is in languages. I also have over 6 years of teaching experience at the Goethe Institut and Birkbeck University as well as thousands of hours working with private students.

Born and raised in Germany by a mum who is also a German teacher. German is my mother tongue. Pronunciation, intonation, grammar, sentence structure, the best German sayings, all the words for beer… I know the language inside out.

A focus on your success. My work is my passion and I want the absolute best for my students. I am determined to take you to the next level, no matter what. I’m not afraid to tell the truth, because this is where real learning happens, if you say something wrong 10 times, I will correct you 10 times until you get it right. Repetition is where the magic happens.
