I am a freelance translator and language trainer. My native language is German. I have over ten years of experience in working and volunteering in the educational sector, as well as having studied teaching-related subjects in university. This is how I gained profound knowledge about planning lessons and teaching foreign languages. Adapting my lessons to your individual needs, I will always do my very best to ensure that you achieve your personal goals.
I started off helping school children and teenagers in Germany to improve their academic results in English and French.
In the UK, I have been teaching German "from scratch" to individuals and small groups with different objectives, as well as practicing with more advanced learners.
In my main capacity as a marketing translator, I regularly help budding translators to improve their work, and train other professional translators to follow the client brief for specific projects (mainly fashion related).
I am holding a Master's degree in Education from a German university. My coursework included modules about teaching foreign languages. I have also done two work placements in German colleges and a lot of voluntary work in the educational sector.
I will adapt my teaching methods to your personal goals, offering taylor-made solutions for your individual language needs. We can practice conversation as well as work towards improving your writing and grammar.
