I was born and raised in Germany. After finishing High School I started to live, study and work abroad, from Wales to Brazil. I have been teaching German and other languages at my own private school since 2013. Based on my personal expat experience and speaking fluently 5 foreign languages (English, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, French), I focus my teaching on practical communication presented in bite-sized portions. Since 2017 I am certified as a lecturer by the federal authorities as a teacher of German as a foreign language. My courses have an above-average (almost 90%) success rate - tested and certified.
