About me

Hej och välkommen! Hello and welcome!

I am glad that you found your way to me and I am glad that you are learning Swedish! I am here to help you with that!

No matter what background you come from I glad to meet you and base our classes on your current level and situation in life. Many of my new students like the structure of a book to lean back on (I have ample examples for us to choose from), whereas if your Swedish is more advanced, we would probably tailor the courses to fit your personal needs.

Apart from English I do as well speak French and basic German. I think that my aptitude for learning languages comes from travels and personal my interests in different cultures. I have spent a large portion of my life abroad and I know what it takes to settle in a new country and understand a new culture.

I know a great deal as well about Sweden in particular as I am a certified Swedish and Stockholm tourist guide. I have as well a technical degree in engineering, so if you like to talk technical terms or learn a more business-oriented language I would be pleased to do so with you!

My current passion is photography, which I put a great deal of time into. I am looking forward to meeting you and help you fulfil your dreams as well!

Qualifications & Experience

I have extensive knowledge of teaching on all levels, from absolute beginners to advanced language learners. Teaching has always been a passion for me throughout my rich professional career and leisure time explorations.

Along-side studies I started more than 10 years ago to work as a substitute teacher. I can happily say that teaching and tutoring and exploring a subject together with someone is something that I am good at and enjoy doing.

In recent years, I have gone from tutoring and creating interests around Stockholm and the Swedish culture to teaching online in Swedish and as a freelance teacher in English.

I have guided to students to professional examinations such as SWEDEX : Swedish Examinations up to the highest level, B2.

Teaching Approach

When beginning with Swedish we work on building your vocabulary and deepen your understanding of the Swedish grammar. To have a personal tutor is highly beneficial as it will it will give the most out of your lesson, reliving some of the stress of being “all-knowing” yourself.

You will be able to enjoy a structured and informative lessons, knowing that, at the same time, no bad habits are missed and no faults are cemented. As we work on understanding and expressing spoken and written Swedish, I will be there all along, pointing you in the right direction if you ever get out of track!

With more advanced students, we often work on pronunciation correction, intonation and the structure of a Swedish sounding phrase. This of course something that I as well implement early on when learning Swedish, so that you will not at a later stage must rework all that you have learned so far!

The lesson will of course be based on your personal interests! I am looking forward to meeting you in person!
