Personal Description:

As an experienced language teacher and trained anthropologist my strengths include: empathy, a creative use of resources, an open mind and the ability to see weaknesses and to explain complicated linguistic points with a lot of patience. I am a German native speaker and as I have learned foreign languages myself, I have a good idea of the complexity and the difficulties one can encounter.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught German and English as a foreign language to children, teenagers and adults in language schools, summer schools and privately since 2005. This includes exam preparation and guiding students through the Leaving Cert and Junior Cert. I am also a TEFL teacher trainer and a German JC oral examiner and an LC and JC written mock examiner.

Approach to Grinds:

The most important thing my grinds do is giving the students confidence. I try and make language learning fun and - in exam preparation - focus on improving results. All skills are trained: speaking, writing, reading, listening. I tailor all lessons to the individual student's needs and provide all materials if necessary. I also offer support throughout the week through WhatsApp, texts, email etc. if desired.
Small groups may also be available.
