About Me

Originally from South Africa and raised in Australia, I have lived in many different countries which has given me exposure to various kinds of English. Now residing in Cologne, Germany, I teach English to all types of professionals and students.

With a degree in Business Management and Marketing, four years experience in one of the top global pharmaceutical companies, qualifications in teaching English (TEFL) and experience as an English teacher in Germany and Indonesia, I currently work with students from all over the world in achieving their goals.

Language is dynamic and needs to be approached with more than a strict formula. Thus, topic-based discussions are very important to activate your English abilities.

My teaching style is non-intimidating and I create a fun environment for learning. This is essential for your language development. My aim is to see my students develop in their confidence and English abilities.

My areas of passion and expertise are;
- Business proposals
- Job Interview Preparation
- Presentations
- Presentation skills
- Negotiations
- Business conversation
- PET/TOEFL/IELTS/Cambridge Exam preparation (speaking and writing)

My hobbies include travelling, surfing and photography. I cant wait to hear about yours

I look forward to meeting you and joining you on your English journey to success
