My name is Daniel. I am a language enthusiast (I speak 6) currently working as an English & Romanian teacher in the eastern part of Germany. I'm passionate about learning, sports & travelling.
In the past four years, I have lived (and worked) across 4 different countries, experiences which have given me personal & professional intercultural skills. It is these skills that help me to better adapt to diverse students (and student styles) in the classroom.
I'm open minded and I view myself as a conversationalist, therefore the ability to communicate well with all kinds of individuals is something that I have strived towards my entire life.
My most important goals inside the classroom are to both offer a pleasant learning environment, however also to offer one in which each student's specific goals are met. That is, no doubt, not always very simple however, I believe my style of focusing on student needs makes it more often than not, succeed.
In the classroom, I prefer to use a communicate approach to teaching, one that strives to emulate real life situations a 2nd language speaker would be confronted with: anything from normal conversations with a friend or acquaintance to dealing with clerks inside the bank, or communicating with a doctor inside a doctor's office.
