Guten Tag! I completed my master's degree in linguistics at the Free University of Berlin and spent a total of over four years in Germany. Whenever I speak with natives, they tell me that my German is excellent, practically without accent! I would love to help students who are just getting started with German or who are already moving into the conversational level. I also have a lot of great German language learning materials that could be incorporated into our lessons. Ich freue mich darauf Sie kennenzulernen! (I look forward to getting to know you!)
What is my approach? First of all, I listen carefully, very carefully. I believe it is important for an excellent job to know precisely what my client wants to accomplish. Understanding this is the prerequisite to giving good advice, guidance, and then, of course, a plan, a kind of strategy to follow to reach these goals. There will be a permanent interaction between my client and myself to monitor the progress, eventually speed up the tempo or, if necessary, slow down. There is no dogma; there is only one main criterion: success.
I can speak four languages, so I understand what it is like to learn a new language which is what makes me an excellent German tutor and teacher. My father is Swiss-German and my mother's ancestors are mostly German. I knew a bit of German growing up but I took German classes in school from ages 12-18 and ended up with an International Baccalaureate certificate in German. I also love German people and culture so come and learn with me, it would be my honor to teach you!
If you are looking for a fun, flexible, and engaging tutor, I am perfect for you. I provide a variety of activities so you will never get bored. For example, I will use fun warm up tasks, games, interactive conversational lessons, and quizzes. We will use authentic materials as well. All materials are provided. You will learn conversational skills, formal writing skills, and test taking strategies all in a fun manner. This course is perfect for beginners to get a basic understanding after several weeks or for advanced speakers who want to brush up on their language skills.
I have instructed over one hundred students in private German courses. I routinely exceeded student retention expectations. In a period of eight months, my efforts doubled the number of students enrolled in the German language program, through my professional and effective teaching.
As a native German speaker and native English speaker, students will quickly learn German proficiency and lessons will be focused on the goals of the particular student.
Hello my name is Verena! I am a German native speaker and currently teaching German at a Language Center in Orlando. I believe in the method of "Learning by doing" which means that I engage my students to actively use the new language, learn in a natural way using real life objects and creating real life situation. I have a post graduate degree from a German University and worked for several years as a teacher in educational science and was additionally responsible for the supervision of Bachelor and Master Theses in German language. On these grounds, I am ideally educated to help you with your verbal and written skills in German language. If you just want to be able to have social talks, ask for direction, order food, or if you are interested in intensive language skills - I am here to help you!
