Hi everybody! I am Stephie, an experienced language teacher for more than 15 years and Mom of 2. Come on a journey with me through Germany, Austria and Switzerland to make you experience language and culture first hand! I currently live in the beautiful Palantine region in the southwest of Germany and love spending time outdoors.
I have got the Goethe certificate to teach German as a foreign language and a university degree in education as well as a bachelor's degree in social works. Apart from my professional background you will have a conversation partner with lots of interests such as sports, literature and history.
Me as a Teacher
I have more than 15 years of teaching experience covering all ages from preschool to adults at all levels. Throughout the years I have worked for companies as well as private schools and also in hospital, so I am used to adapt to me student's needs. I am a very patient and emphatic teacher and can offer you support to find out more about your learning habits. Please note that I am not offering children' s classes at the moment. In conversation classes we choose interesting topics (no business German or specific work fields though) and analyze our conversation at the end of the lesson.
My lessons & teaching style
My lessons will be tailored to your specific needs and goals and adjusted to your progress. I want you to feel comfortable and gain confidence during our lessons. In the end you will experience a sense of achievement an you will be able to transfer this success to other areas. By using different approaches and various materials you will learn effectively throughout the whole lesson. For beginners I offer structured lessons alongside a book but always suited to your individual needs. In the first class we will discuss your level and your goals and I will select the best methods and materials for you.

Seit einigen Monaten genieße ich den Konversationsunterricht mit Stephie sehr. Texte auf meinem Niveau, mit Vorschlägen zu den am häufigsten verwendeten Wörtern und perfekten Übungen. Stephie ist interaktiv und freundlich, merkt sich Fehler und gibt dem Schüler Gelegenheit, sie selbst zu korrigieren. Ich freue mich schon auf unsere nächste Lektion.
conversation lessons with Stephie. Texts at my level, with suggestions of the most frequently used words and perfect exercises. Stephie is interactive and friendly, noticing mistakes and giving the student the opportunity to correct them themselves. I am already looking forward to our next lesson.

If I slowly start to feel more confident and without the fear of making mistakes, I owe it to Stephi who always puts me at ease. Each lesson increases my knowledge and I begin to formulate my first sentences on my own. Thank you very much Stephie!

After several month with Stephie I can say for sure that she is the best German teacher I've founf here in Italki. She is always prepared and she follows me step by step, she is always helpful and tries to explain me all the rules in the easiest way possible. She makes me feel comfortable and i really enjoy all the lessons with her. And nevertheless, he always takes care to send me exercises which we then review together in the next lesson. Thank you very much Stephie!
