Hello, I’m Steph. I’m a native German and have lived in the UK for the last 13 years. I have a First-Class Degree in International Management (a university course which combines Foreign Languages and Business Studies) from the Hochschule Bremen in Germany and Westminster University in London. I am a mum to two young girls and I worked in marketing for several years before I had my children.
I have a passion for languages and speak four languages including my native German. I love different cultures and have travelled the world extensively.
I have tutored a wide range of age groups and language skills in Germany and the UK. I have extensive personal experience learning foreign languages having studied three languages at school and have continued to do so during my university studies and recently taking part in an adult learning class to refresh my Spanish. I understand that different people benefit from different teaching methods and that having fun while learning is beneficial to the learning process.
My style is relaxed and friendly. My aim is to focus on the student's needs and to make language learning an enjoyable experience. I adapt my teaching style to the age and interest of the learner, and to the needs and purpose of the learning. I can focus on conversational German only if that’s your priority or go through all the elements from grammar training, reading, writing to listening and speaking.
I teach the German language across all levels.
