German tuiton for all ages and businesses general German and business German

Methodology

I am a native German with over 25 years’ experience in teaching German at all levels. My teaching extends beyond the German language to also cover culture, literature, history and current affairs.
I provide one-to-one lessons for all ages, and all lessons are designed according to the needs and learning abilities of my students. Since many of my students have been with me for many years, this allows me to provide learning that evolves according to their tastes and learning styles and remains relevant even to advanced learners.
I have experience in working with students across a range of disciplines and contexts. In particular, I have a strong background with those in government departments such as FCO, BIS, and others, and in preparing EPSO students for European Commission examinations. I have also provided intensive courses in Brussels for students in the Commission and the European parliament. Within the private sector, I teach German to students in the financial, insurance, legal, and technology sectors. My extensive experience in preparing students for examinations (both business and general German) is an advantage as I can support students with the most appropriate material and tutor them through their preparations for examinations.

Experience

I am a native German. I studied languages in Germany and have been living in London for more than 18 years. In Germany I worked as a translator for companies and local govenments. I also taught English, bookkeeping and economics in Germany.
