About me

Hello everyone and welcome!

My name is Carina and I am from Graz, a lovely and vibrant city in Austria. I am a professional German teacher with experience in teaching all levels and age groups. I teach German to students from all over the word and help them improve their conversational skills and prepare for certificates.

As a language learner (I have learned Italian and now I am learning Spanish), I feel that I better understand the needs of a student and how making lessons fun, interesting and tailored to your needs. I really think it is important to be able to speak another language. It helps our understanding of different cultures and it makes traveling abroad even more special when you can speak the native language.

I have tutored and mentored people from all over the world, beginner to advanced levels, specializing in business German as well as exam preparation for German proficiency exams such as Goethe Certificate, ÖSD, and Test Deutsch als Fremdsprache ( Test DaF) and specialized courses.

My goal is to improve your German speaking confidence and helping you learn new words and improve your spoken grammar. Each class is designed to your personal needs. If you want to learn German, refresh your German knowledge, if you need private lessons in German to prepare for a test or simply want to improve your pronunciation, you are welcome to contact me.

Qualifications & Experience

I have a degree in Biology (University of Graz) and at the moment I am writing my masters thesis in the field of education and pedagogy.

I started tutoring English and German in 2010 and I have vast experience of teaching English and German one-to-one to foreign students of all nationalities.

Teaching language for 5 years, and being a native speaker of the German language, I have an understanding of the use of German in general and in a business setting, either in conversation or written communication.

I have tutored and mentored people from all over the world, beginner to advanced levels, specializing in business German as well as exam preparation for German proficiency exams such as Goethe Certificate, ÖSD, and Test Deutsch als Fremdsprache ( Test DaF) and specialized courses.

Teaching Approach

I love learning and teaching new languages and hope to share my knowledge with many new students all around the world.

My teaching approach is communicative, caring and learner-centred. I am a very patient and encouraging teacher and I believe that positive learning experiences can make a big difference to someone's life and I feel passionate about accompanying my students on their personal learning journeys.
