I am a certified TestDaF and telc examiner. I specialise in test preparation (Goethe-Zertifikat, TestDaF, telc, ÖSD, fide, etc.).
I offer both general German language lessons and specific courses of grammar, conversation, writing, test preparation and interview preparation. My focus is on intermediate and advanced German learners, who need a higher level of accuracy and fluency in terms of exposition, argumentation and self-expression.
I have been teaching German online since 2016. Prior to that, I taught at one of the leading language schools in Berlin for over six years. I hold a Magister (German equivalent to the master's degree) in German history and literature from Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (2001) and a certificate of teaching German as a foreign language from Goethe-Institut, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (2010). Before becoming a language teacher, I was a journalist for six years at a local newspaper in Potsdam.
Language lessons can be fun, but language-learning is certainly time-consuming and occasionally frustrating. I am therefore aiming at establishing a collaborative relationship with you and keeping you motivated and inspired along the way.
