Hello, my name is Stefanie. My native language is German, however I have lived in foreign countries and know how it feels to learn a different language. No one is born speaking a language by themselves. We all learn by practice and constantly having conversations in the desired language. If you want to learn the language you have to read, write, and even talk with someone who knows the language and is patient.
Teaching for over 10 years. Many of my students are immigrants and are taught in private one on one classes. I love teaching. It gives me great joy to see my students improve their ability to communicate with the world around them.
My other passion in life is music.
Teaching language for 10 years, and being a native speaker of the German language, I have an understanding of the use of German in business setting, either in conversation or written communication.
Previously worked at the International Office of Communication.
Privately contracted for translation services for other businesses.
Depends on the student. First we develop a goal, what does the student want? I consider the student’s capacity for learning and ability. We go at comfortable pace for the student - having fun learning is easier. I will challenge you to learn new things and strive to get better every day.
I enjoy teaching beginners and advanced students. We will develop a lesson plan as you need and at your level. We can talk about topics of interest to you. With your interest we can converse and write about topics that will be useful to you.
During my lesson I use text material to improve your reading as well. If you like to have homework I will prepare for you something.
Look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your language goals!
