I am currently only offer online tutoring due to Covid! So far it has worked just as successfully as in Real Life! :-) Thanks so much for taking the time to look at my Profile and having an interest in me teaching you my beautiful native language. I am a German native speaker with a Master of Arts in Screenplay writing and extensive German tutoring and English teaching experience. I grew up bilingual with a Canadian Mother and German Father, went to the European school and studied/worked in Germany, England and Canada, so I am fluent in both German and English.
So far I have had the great pleasure of teaching German for 7+ years to clients of all ages including adults, teenagers and children - from beginner to advanced to clients with different goals and needs. E.g. I taught German to a known Novelist, who needed German for her latest book taking place in German or a former French teacher with the goal to spend more time in Germany or 6-year-old twins to be able to speak with their German grandmother.
I am also an English teacher, teaching creative writing and English to children and teenagers in classes of up to 6 children. Using amazing teaching material and zoom I teach English in a fun and practical way.
Next to being a German Tutor and English Teacher I am also a passionate screenplay writer with extensive writing, teaching and consulting experience in a wide range of writing formats and disciplines. I worked with clients and students within a one-on one basis as well as group development settings, incorporating their vision while helping improve their projects in a constructive and marketable way. I taught many different private Screenwriting Classes.
Clients enjoy my practical, creative and easy approach and so far all of them had fun, what I believe learning should be about. Especially if it is after work or school. I do believe in the importance to learn the theoretical side any language, but I find that it is even more important to actually be able to speak a language. This is where my teaching focus lies, being able to communicate in important day-to-day life situations like going grocery shopping or ordering food in a restaurant. I tend to include situations like these in my teaching sessions.
I also take pride in bringing all of my clients closer to the German culture, incorporating the German way of life and traditions into my tutoring sessions. As I grew up bilingual it makes learning German way easier and comprehensive.
Know that I always come prepared, use my own teaching material or ideas tailored to each individual client and their goals, needs, skill levels, etc. Having said that I am also happy to use teaching material a client is already accustomed to.
Please contact me in regards to availability.
Due to Covid I currently only provide Online Sessions.
