Native German speaker with teaching and business experience offering German lessons at any level

Methodology

extensive teaching and tutoring experience in 2 countries and 3 languages has made me an intuitive teacher who recognises students' learning styles and tailors lessons to requirements on every occasion. Try this analogy: your new language is a massive jigsaw puzzle and my job is to help you complete the big picture. I tent to start with the framework and the more you learn, the easier it will become for you to put pieces in yourself. You go from passive language (what you understand) to active language (what you can actively use). A deep understanding of culture and business acumen on my part will help you get the full picture and enjoy using your new language or brush up on existing knowledge.

Background

A native German speaker, near-native English speaker, experienced business owner and tutor in language and (business) culture, international business development, inward and outward investment, communication strategies and public speaking.
An educator and teacher of German, English and French for over 30 years at secondary, vocational and professional level. I design, develop and deliver tailored content, have in-depth knowledge of secondary education curricula and work with students in and outside school settings to guarantee best possible support. I am an adult education tutor for English and maths functional skills level 1 and 2, employability, financial literacy, ESOL/TEFL, German and French.
