I taught English as a second language for 26 years in Germany teaching in-company, at universities and giving private lessons. I have prepared people for the TOEFL, Cambridge Certificate Exams, IELTS as well as everyday life in-company. I have helped hundreds of people prepare presentations and how best to handle a question and answer session afterwards. Other topics I have given as day trainings are telephoning, socializing, customer service, meetings, applying for a job, and leading an interview.
In feedback I have received, I am often described as being open and friendly so that people quickly feel comfortable with me. Thank you cards tell me how excited and appreciative students are for passing their exam or giving a great presentation.
I determine what the student needs and address those needs using a variety of materials and approaches. I have also tutored young people and bring in games/activities to liven up the lesson and ensure that the subject matter was learned.
