I graduated from the University of St Andrews with an MA (Hons) German and Russian with a Distinction in Spoken German in 2019 and am now pursuing a career as a professional opera singer, having recently graduated from the the David Seligman Opera School at the RWCMD in Cardiff. I'm currently working online for a language school in Switzerland where I prepare students for language exams for visa purposes as well as professionals who need to improve their language skills for work reasons.
A native speaker of Danish and of half German origin, I naturally have a more native-sounding accent, which I believe will help make you or your child's German more authentic.
I have experiencing teaching adult learners and children (GSCE and A-Level): My students profiles include:
- those aiming for an A* and Oxbridge studies and need to be challenged more than what their school can offer them
- those who struggle either with the language itself or with other special needs such as concentration issues or dyslexia
- those learning German to better communicate with their German partner
- those preparing for naturalisation tests (German passport)
- Non-native speakers of English, who benefit from my multi-lingualism meaning I better understand the grammar of their native language and so can better explain that of German.
Having previously worked as a substitute teacher in various subjects for students aged 6-16, I am able to adapt my teaching style to the particular student's and subject's requirements. Personally, I believe that a thorough understanding of grammar and a lot of oral communication practice are perhaps the most essential aspects of language acquisition. What I particularly enjoy about teaching 1-to-1 lessons is the ability to tailor every single lesson to the student's particular needs.
