About me

Hello, my name is Valeria May and I am a German native speaker.

I am a certified teacher for German as a Foreign Language (Goethe Insitute München, 2015) with passion for teaching, translating and learning languages, fluent in German, Chinese and English.

Full time teaching since 2013, specialized in the field online teaching - individual and group.

International experience in P.R. China, Nanjing, 2010-2012.

2006 Graduated from Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main (M.A.) in Sinology, Mathematics and Computer Science (Thesis: Translation Science).

I love linguistics, travel blogging, yoga and tea.

I have talked with my students already about

--> Sport/Medizin/Gesundheit, Freunde, Geschichte/Historisches, Reisen, Wetter/Klima/Umwelt, Lesen/Filme/Musik/Kunst, Ausbildung/(Sprachen) Lernen, Wohnen/Großstädte, Shopping/Geld, Dialekte, Nachrichten/Medien, Mode, Feste, Kochen

but I am open for all other topics as well :)

I enjoy travelling and keeping up with current events and politics.

I promote intercultural awareness and communicative communication skills in my sessions.

Qualifications & Experience

Background: teacher's certification from Goethe-Institute (2015), German native speaker, Chinese master's degree. Have worked as a university lecturer at Goethe-Uni Frankfurt already.

Personal sessions which meet your needs and requirements best.

I can be really happy with my students, because I feel all who contact me are very ambitious and committed and really want to learn the language. And if you want to learn and practice German you can be sure this is the right place, because I will listen carefully and patiently, and I will also provide you with a good structure (for example grammar, since I studied general linguistics and Chinese in Germany (M.A.) by myself).

Teaching Approach

As a certified teacher, I have the newest up-to-date material here, including modern topics and providing help for slow-paced learners (for example non-European-learners) as well as for fast-paced learners (who already mastered several European languages), preparing you for authentic common situations which you will experience in Germany.

Of course we can always support this by other material and I will develop customized material which fits your needs most. See also my German language blog with free ressources here:

I am always keen on looking up specific grammar questions in my books from study and want to make your picture of the German language clear and obvious.

So, if you want to learn and practice, please don't hesitate and book me right away. I am happy to meet you :-)
