Originally a German high school/grammar school teacher (specializing in English/Philosophy) with 8+ years of full-time teaching experience, I moved to Sydney, NSW in 2015 to practice being a full-time Aussie.
I'd love to help you improve your German or even get you started on this amazing language (think Faust instead of Wurst, please ;)
What have I got to impress you? Well, beside my degree in American studies, how about a course of DAF (German as a foreign language) studies, just so I can explain the difference between DER, DIE and DAS to you.
Together, we can discuss your learning goals and work our way towards them.
I think it's important to mention that:
*I'm not a university student offering language classes to make a bit of pocket money. I hold a diploma in teaching and can proudly look back at more than 17 years of teaching experience (from private lessons back at the uni to my full-time jobs at various German grammar schools)
*I speak English on a near-native level which can be extremely helpful, especially if you're a beginner. Thanks to my educational background (I majored in English), I can quickly explain a difference between a noun and a pronoun, help you avoid 'false friends' and generally make sure you're swiftly headed towards your learning goal.
*I guess, this is the most important one - I LOVE what I do. Teaching brings fun, fulfilment and meaning into my life. I've found most amazing students here on Verbling and I look forward to pretty much every single lesson - we laugh together, we work our way through some difficult bits together - and by the time I hang up I always know my student's become a bit better. Which makes me a better teacher. Win-win!
Sorry, no sausages or beer allowed during lessons, however, this after-class option is to be discussed.
