Hallo und willkommen! Im a Native speaker of German and have worked as a German and English as a Second Language teacher ever since I graduated in 2000 with a Masters in German as a Foreign Language, American Studies and Intercultural Business Communication. My Alma Mater is the University of Jena in beautiful Thuringia. Having lived and worked in Great Britain, New Zealand and now the USA, I have experienced different cultures, which has helped me communicate with people and opened my mind to other views of the world. Since 2010, I have lived in California, first in Marina del Rey, and now in Mountain View in the Bay Area.
Professional stints outside of my career in language teaching included working as documentation developer, software trainer, consultant for business process improvement and lecturer in communications. I am also a translator for the entertainment and video game industry. My academic background (I hold a PhD in Education) coupled with my corporate experience paved the way for creating a teaching approach that takes your individual learner needs into account. I offer communicative, interactive and culturally informative lessons set in a fun and open learning environment. This method is founded on structural learning based on solid knowledge of language acquisition and learning strategies.
