About brother_daveMy background is in language education, having studied BA Modern Languages. I speak German and Mandarin Chinese. I have a TEFL certificate from UK-TEFL and have attended a British Council training course for English Language Assistants. I have experience working in the USA, Turkey and Germany and have been teaching English for over two years. I currently work in a German high school as an English language assistant.
I offer language lessons to students of all abilities. I am able to offer speaking practice and/or tailored lesson plans. I have created many of my own materials, but also have access to professional lesson plans from the British Council.
