À propos de moi

I am a native German speaker and German language tutor with a few years of experience. I am an enthusiastic and positive person and always intend to spark my student's interest and motivation by applying methods and teaching styles that are best suited for my student's way of learning. I can teach all levels of German as well as prepare you for any kind of language test on any level.
Additional learning material will also be provided by me, depending on your goals and levels we will use various course, work and/or grammar books. Additional reading stories in ranging through all levels (from A1 to C2) will also be provided including writing and comprehension exercises.

My main teaching style focuses on conversation and on improving your writing skills as well as your confidence in using the German language orally. Thus we will talk a lot and also get you to read about specific topics in order to broaden your vocabulary which we then apply in writing and at the end in a discussion or conversation.
We will work especially on reoccurring gaps and problems, identify them and solve them. The idea here is to develop a deeper understanding of the language and also get you to talk without or with only a thin accent.

As I also hold a BA and MSc in various social sciences I additionally teach and support academic writing in German.
