Swedish Fluency Coach at Danielsson Education

I am the founder of Danielsson Education, passionate entrepreneur, English and Swedish tutor and Sweden's first and only Swedish Fluency Coach.

This company was started based on my own passion and profession; Teaching.

I'm doing what I love, the way I want to do it. The goal is to provide students with tools which help them reach their best potential; An improved, confident Swedish.

WHAT I HAVE LEARNED
In a few months I will get my teacher's degree from Stockholm University, with Swedish as a Second Language as major and English as my second subject.

The studies have consisted of practical work placement training, degree projects, courses in language acquisition, linguistics, pedagogy and didactics parallel with advanced courses in the languages. Next spring I will obtain my degree and teacher certificate. 

The teaching profession has been appealing to me since I, as an 8-year-old, was standing on the kitchen floor, trying to teach my younger brother to write and count.

My natural coaching qualities mixed with my passion for language and culture made the choice as a language teacher easy.

WHAT I HAVE TAUGHT 

I have four years of educational experience teaching Second Languages (Swedish and English), teaching people aged 16-86, from all around the world!
