I will teach you how to enjoy your trip/stay in a German or French-speaking country.

Methodology

I tailor my lessons to the student's needs, interests, and abilities. We may use a textbook or I may write the material myself. Usually it's a combination of both. The emphasis is always on the student. I am merely the tour guide. I emphasize oral communication, but don't neglect reading or writing.

Background

I am a certified teacher of German and French, with many years of experience teaching ages 7 through adult. I am a native speaker of German and have near-native proficiency, plus a master's degree in French. I have taught in many different types of settings, from private lessons to public school with large classes. I also teach ESL. Helping my students thrive in a new language environment is my goal.
