    Teaching Approach

    The emphasis is on the balanced exercising of listening, speaking, reading and writing, which are the four important necessary skills, to learn and master a foreign language. Depending on the students demands I suggest certain course books (or provide them, see costs) which enables them to self-studies after class. I provide some materials such as useful tables, lists of words, audio files etc. No need to mention that whatever books or materials are chosen, the individuals needs and interests will always have priority.
    Th e joy of discovery is the key to learning. What one wants to learn one will learn. My job is to support students in this endeavor, according to the goals they have set for themselves and want to achieve.
    The intercultural contrasts between other countries and Germany are always an interesting recurring theme during the lessons.
    The "online classroom" almost resembles a live classroom and proved in my experience as a very effective platform for teaching and learning.

    Program Description

    I offer German for

    1. Business purposes
    2. People who want to work and live in Germany
    3. University students and pupils
    4. People who want to brush up their German or are just interested in learning the language

    o f all ages.

    At the start of every course we'll assess together how you learn best and what you need or would like to learn. The training is tailored to your wishes and needs. A final report marks your progress and recommends paths for further learning. Along with the general courses for beginners and advanced students (A1 to C2 according to the Common European Framework), which can either be held individually or in small groups, I also offer separate courses that assist you in preparing for exams, as well as specific units about grammar. Additionally, I can also support you in preparing, developing and editing presentations and reports, telephone conversations , in the composition of mail, electronic or otherwise, etc.
    The length of the course depends on your wishes and demands.

    Teaching Experience

    I've been teaching German as a Foreign Language for over 20 years. Currently I teach specified Business German to people who want to live and work in Germany, either in legal, medical or technical professions, offices or in in the catering trade like hotels etc., as well as foreign students who want to attend German universities. But also to people who just like to learn the language or brush up their German. I also provide training for both middle management and senior staff who need German for their businesses. Students I teach/taught are/were literally from all continents.

    Teacher Training

    I hold the "Certificate in the Teaching German as a Foreign Language" by the Trinity College University London, which I acquired 23 years ago while I was living in England. Additionally I acquired three years ago a certificate by the German Federal Office for Migrants and Refugees for teaching in integration courses. I also hold all licenses as an examiner in German language examinations (A-C + DSH), like the "Certificate German" (Deutsch Zertifikat) and the "Certificate German for Jobs", plus DTZ. I'm also experienced in the preparation for the German citizenship test. Besides private teaching I'm working in Berlin at German language schools acknowledged by the a.m. Federal Office for Migrants and Refugees and the European Social Fond and work as an examiner. I regularly attend seminaries on realizations of new teaching approaches to learners of different needs and backgrounds.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Teaching schedule:
    - The teaching schedule will be arranged individually.

    Payment policy:
    - Payments in advance for a minimum of four lessons by PayPal or bank transfer.

    Cancellation policy:
    You might know that the normal announcement for a cancellation is 24 hours in advance in many private or single arrangements of all sorts of businesses. But the experience showed that it happens in almost all sorts of businesses that people get short term notifications which they couldn't have foreseen 24 hours in advance. Therefore my cancellation policy is as follows (exceptions due to situation and circumstances are always possible):
    24 hours in advance: No charge.
    12 hours in advance: Third price of cancelled lessons.
    6 hours in advance: Half prie of cancelled lessons.
    3 hours in advance: Full price of cancelled lessons.
