Teaching since:

Hi, I am from Germany and hold a Ph.D. in German Language, Literature & Culture. I have a passion for teaching, languages and cultures, which is why I built a career in this field. I value cooperation and structure each lesson to fit your needs, and I make my lessons fun and exciting by adding lots of cultural aspects into your language learning experience. I am very flexible with time and location and I strive to build a strong student-teacher relationship.

Was wonderful with my kids and they enjoyed their German conversations. They were surprised at how quick their first lesson went!
