My specialties are German for daily life, practical grammar, writing, German for university students, interview and test preparation.
I design each class especially for you to meet your unique needs. If you think you’re worth this investment in yourself and your development, please book a trial class with me, so we can discuss your individual needs and the approach for our classes together!

My background & experience
For the last three years I’ve been working as a university teacher and lecturer for German in China. Overall, I have 10+ years of professional experience in teaching, coaching and consulting. In the last five years I have focused on teaching German – privately and in groups, in person and online. I especially love teaching people who are living or would like to live in the German-speaking countries.
My background is in language (English, Spanish, French, German), international cultural studies, leadership and sustainability. I have lived in the UK, Sweden and China, and have visited many countries in the world.
The approach you can expect
Besides being warm and sensitive, I'm good at understanding your situation and designing content for you that meets your unique needs. I'm a structured person and aim to give you a secure understanding of the German language system. In each lesson, we'll focus on an aspect or theme intensively, so that you'll have plenty of time to practice. My classes always include homework and a review part, so your learning has time to sink in. When possible, I love integrating engaging activities and authentic learning material such as videos and songs.

Wishing you all the best for your German learning!
