“The limits of my language mean the limits of my world.”
– Ludwig Wittgenstein
Language fuels our brains, frames our thoughts and makes complex communication possible. In an age of borderless communications and global travel, it seems almost archaic to be limited to one language only.
I'm a native German speaker, born and raised in a town in northern Germany. After travelling a lot I decided to settle down in the beautiful town of Oaxaca de Juarez. Although already living here for several years I'm still enthusiastic about the vibrant art scene, the delicious food and the warm-hearted people here in the south of México.
What I love about teaching German online is not only the chance to help people to reach their goals but also to meet diverse people from all over the world.

I'm a language teacher with more than 10 years of experience. In Germany I've been teaching private lessons for high school students and for Italian students living in Germany.
I’ve been teaching German online for 6 years (with a major German online language school and with Verbalplanet) and „face to face“ in the Berlitz language school here in Oaxaca de Juarez for 2 years.
Having studied foreign languages myself - and still learning - I have a true understanding for how hard it is to learn a new language from the beginning. I've found that this helps me relate to my students.
My teaching approach is learner-centered - which means that we will find out the best way for YOU to individually learn German. The lessons will be adapted completely to your needs.
I am a big believer in creating a fun, authentic learning experience, through which students learn the language within the context of real-world situations to which they can relate. Each student has his own goals and interests and by using a lot of different materials in my lessons I can fully cater to each level, demand and expectation. During classes with me you will practise speaking German as much as possible and I'll correct your mistakes.
Together we will work towards your goal. Whether you live in a German speaking country, need help in business matters or want to learn German “just for the holidays” - let me help you to explore the German language.
I offer classes beginning from level A1 / beginners to C2 / proficient speaker.
This includes conversational classes geared more toward people who already have reached a certain level and need to focus more on their conversational German and listening comprehension as well as beginners trying to get a grip on German.
