Guten Tag & Buenos dias from Los Angeles!
I was born in Düsseldorf, Germany. Due to my dad's international work I had the great fortune to grow up with 3 languages from an early age. After primary school in Germany, we moved abroad and I attended Colegio Humboldt in Mexico City and later Colegio Goethe in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Growing up a German Latino was a fantastic experience.
I specialize in a real creative approach when teaching a language. What makes us connect with a language, the people and their culture, is conversation and interaction, more so than purely studying grammar books. Just as I learned early on, once you think in a new language do you really become connected with it.
Coming from the music and entertainment industries, I have taught and coached many performing artists across all 3 languages (English, Spanish & German), and it's really exciting helping a singer for example deliver a compelling performance in a foreign language.
I look forward to helping you become one with a new language and feel like you're becoming a local.
