 Confidence boosting lesson with good revision of vocab and interesting discussion on topics such as employment, work-life balance, gender equality. Maria helped me string the sentences together for my ideas and as such I revised the grammar structures too. Thanks again Maria

 Excellent balance to the lesson with lots of time to discuss, and also to listen to an audio with different speakers. Did a quick recap of essential grammar points too. Thanks again Maria

 Maria chose an article for study which was at my exact level so I could understand it well, and could also learn some new vocabulary in a familiar context. We also decided which book to use for the future having considered the options from three renowned publishers. Very aware and pleasant teacher. Excellent. Thanks.

About me - English

Servus! I am a German language teacher from Vienna (Austria), and I currently live in Greece. I am a graduate of the department of German language and literature, of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, with a specialization in German as a foreign language (DaF/ DaZ).

I was raised bilingual (Greek and German) so I am a Native German speaker with a neutral accent. I am passionate about teaching German to students who are new to German, as well as advanced students that need to practice and improve the language.

Calm and relaxed lessons lead to reliable results, as the student enjoys the process of learning a language and therefore remains motivated. As a result, the student gets more confident and they learn that new language easier.

I will work gradually and allow you to discover the language in a fun and interactive way. All lessons are customized to your level and specific needs. I provide a lesson plan for every lesson and will also provide materials before and after each lesson so that you can practice.

I will help you:

- learn the German language

- improve your grammar and vocabulary

- develop better conversation, writing and reading skills

I am here to guide you and help you through your journey of learning the German language. I would love to be your teacher, your assistant but also why not a friend with whom you will learn German in a more relaxed and friendly environment. Can’t wait to meet you! Bis bald!

Qualifications & Experience

I have studied "German Language and Philology" at the National Kapodistrian University of Athens,

with specialization on "German as a foreign language".

I have been raised bilingual, so I have two native languages: German and Greek!

I also speak English in Upper Intermediate level.

My teaching experience includes:

- I started teaching small groups of kids and teenagers in a Greek language school on Levels A1-B1 for more than a year.

- After that I gave only private (one to one) lessons, which I find more effective, to teenagers and adults in my current location in Egio (Greece),

- Since 2018 I have been teaching online to mainly adults all over the Globe.

Teaching Approach

I give lessons to both adults and teenagers, from beginner to advanced levels. My approach is focused on the learner’s requests, by combining classic and interactive teaching methods.

The materials I use are based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

I adapt my teaching style to suit my student’s needs. I have a lot of patience and I am here to explain, repeat and practice as long as it will take for you to get confident.

Learning a foreign language should be pleasure and FUN. I will do my best to teach you German in an enjoyable and relaxed manner.
