About Juhani

I've graduated from the University of Turku. I studied Finnish language as my major. I also completed teacher studies and Finnish as a second language studies. I also studied literature and Estonian as a minor subject. I was Erasmus student in Estonia spring 2006. This lead me to be a trainee in the University of Tartu fall 2007. I held a beginners course of Finnish. In February 2009 I started as Finnish teacher in the company called Mediverkko oy. I taught Finnish for Estonian doctors and medical students for 4,5 years. At the same time I worked as the head teacher of Tartu Finnish School, where I taught Finnish for students aged 7-15.

I've moved now to Berlin and will continue working online. I teach online over 20 7th grade students, who live all around the world. I also teach two students in an upper secondary school in Tartu, also online. I have started in italki in November 2013 and feel really excited about it :) I feel that teaching online can be as beneficial and effective as teaching in a regular classroom.

I would like to help you with whatever you wish to learn in Finnish. Grammar, communication skills, speaking practice - everything. After we've discussed and agreed about your studies I will start tailoring the lessons for you. I'm really into finding new materials online and testing them out. I try to keep my teaching always interesting through different types of exercises and methods. A happy lesson is best for the learning :) Feel free to contact me and let's have our first trial lesson!
