My specialty is academic German and I perceive language in a formal and schematic sense, though this intimate understanding of language affords me a high degree of freedom in the content and manner of my lessons. Should you employ my services, we would discuss the content and goal of the course and lessons and thereby negotiate a scope and pace. As an example of methodology, should the course be conversational in nature, the lessons would be conducted primarily in German, expanding your knowledge stepwise based on your prior knowledge in the fashion of a discssion. In a reading and writing comprehension course, articles would be assigned for reading, to which you would formulate and compose an opinion in German. I would correct your composition and we would discuss the mistakes, centering the lesson largely on recurring mistakes and, depending on the level, style.
I am a student of language and my medium of study has been the German language for the past five years. I lived in Berlin, Germany, from 2013-2018 and in that time I earned a bachelor of arts at the Universität-Humboldt zu Berlin in Historical Linguistics and Russian - writing theses, reading texts, listening to lectures and giving presentations in German. I have never taught German in any formal sense and my German is more academic and technical than conversational. That being said, I know how language works inside and out and I can tailor my style and focus to suit your needs. I've navigated the free-wheeling streets of Berlin for the past five years (in addition to two years in two other German cities) and I'm ready to dive into anything from Amtsdeutsch to Jugenddeutsch.
