I'm a certified German as a Foreign/Second Language teacher (BA DaF/DaZ) specialized in teaching adults.
I have taught integration classes, level/certification courses and company courses for varied businesses, e.g. travel agencies, banks, and start-ups. For the past 4 years I specialize in 1:1 online classes.
Classes with me are structured, topic-oriented, fun and relaxed yet focused. I use varied teaching/learning methods, and I'm quick to adapt to your needs. I can answer spontaneously arising questions.
Having travelled the world extensively, I am interested in countries, culture and people. Therefore, I very much enjoy working with students from all over the world. Both my work and my travel experience help me bond with people quite quickly and provide me with a distinctive intercultural competence. I'm light-hearted, quick to laugh, open-minded and curious.
I'm close to my students and genuinely care about you. My teaching style depends on your learning style, your goals and interests.

To make organizing easier and more reliable for both sides there are 2 simple rules:
😊 24h rule: You are welcome to reschedule as necessary - as long as it's at least 24h ahead of that specific lesson, not shorter. That way another student still gets a chance at that time slot and my income is regulated. If you cannot make it "last minute" the lesson is fully forfeited.
😊 15min rule: I wait a maximum of 15 minutes for non-communicated delays. If I do not hear from you within the first 15min of the lesson, the lesson is fully forfeited.
On the other side, if I am informed of the delay I'm happy to wait, but the amount of time you are late is lost.
Thank you very much for reading through my profile and understanding the needed regulations.
Now let us have fun learning German!
😊 Liebe Grüße, Rosi
