My name is Tatjana. I was born and raised in Austria where I used to live until I met my partner who is English. It was love at first sight, I moved to England and nine years on, we are still happy together. We have a little son now and are living in a beautiful village in the South-East of England. I can well say that speaking a foreign language has changed my whole life.
Whatever it is you would like to do with your German:
~ going on holiday
~ making new friends
~ speaking to your customers
~ reading German poems
~ passing exams
I would be delighted to support you and be your live online tutor.
I have a master degree in "German Philology" and "History and Social Studies" from the University of Klagenfurt (Austria). Since I moved to England more than nine years ago, I have gained extensive experience of teaching German. My assignments to date have included working as a lecturer in Higher Education as well as teaching Business German for a wide variety of companies in London. Most recently, I have joined the exciting and fast growing community of online language teachers by completing the LANCELOT course (LANguage learning with CErtified Live Online Teachers): http://lancelot.univie.ac.at/.
My teaching approach is communicative, caring and learner-centred. 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.
