Hello and welcome to my profile!
I am Jennifer, a certified TEFL English Teacher from a rural area in the beautiful South West of Ireland. I grew up bilingual, speaking English and German. I currently live in Germany, study psychology part-time with the Open University in the UK and work with a German HR company as Quality Manager to provide their extensive website and marketing content in several languages.
Apart from teaching English as a foreign language, I am also a certified Yin and Hatha Yoga Instructor.
In my time away from the laptop I enjoy climbing, cooking and traveling. I believe there is hardly any better way to meet people and get to know cultures than through their local foods and native dishes.
I am a qualified TEFL Business English Teacher, have completed an advanced 180 hour TEFL Course as well as 40 hours of Online English Teacher Training. I strive to continuously improve my skills and provide my students with the best possible learning experiences. My TEFL training has included 60 hours of mindful training for adults as well as 30 hours for children.
As a technical writer and trained car mechanic, I have a strong background within the automotive and engineering sector. Additionally, I have worked in sales and customer service roles for international pharmaceutical, IT and tourism companies. My specialities lie within those areas when teaching advanced business english skills, yet I never shy away from a challenge.
While my main qualification currently lies within Business English, I also teach both children and adults in everyday conversational skills. I enjoy having a mix of students from beginners to advanced and receiving feedback to constantly fine tune my lessons.
Furthermore, I have experience in learning foreign languages myself, so I understand the needs and challenges of foreign language students.
I enjoy helping students improve their English in a friendly, constructive and patient manner.
My teaching approach builds upon my students needs and target(s) which we will agree in our first session together. Contact me for a free trial lesson!
Depending on your needs and wishes our lessons together will focus on one or more of the following: pronunciation and conversations, understanding, reading as well as grammar. My lessons also aim to increase your confidence when speaking freely in front of audiences, with customers and/or on a trip abroad.
I use a mix of visual and audio learning materials. During our first few lessons we will assess what works best for you. I aim to keep my lessons fun, yet challenging and always relevant to your current lifestyle and environment.
My lessons are about providing you the best possible learning experience and value for money. You can set the pace and I always appreciate feedback.
If you're planning a (business) trip abroad and would like to expand your English vocabulary (for a holiday) as well as get some insights into a new culture, book your lesson with me now!
