Me as a Teacher
As a language tutor/teacher, I believe, that my task is to provide you the tools, show you the methods and techniques to learn a new language. I am available at anytime, if you have questions and need help to solve language related problems. However, I expect my students to be disciplined, to work hard and to use the tools given to them. I will accompany along the way to achieve your language learning goal. I am a funny guy as well, and I want my students to feel comfortable talking to me.
My lessons & teaching style
My lessons are well structured. You won't get lost. My method allows you to speak on your first day, even though they are basic sentences. I use specific books, and Google docs. Together with learning how to read, write and listen, which is quite easy, we will practice a lot of speaking, giving you the opportunity to read texts and to speak. While reading and understanding might be easy, the greatest challenge is language production. My course focuses a lot on language production.
IMPORTANT!!!!I use Zoom and Skype for the lesson. To get the link, please write me. I will send you the details.

3 German lessons
I tried three tutors for a trial and Ben was by far the best. He made the class fun and helped me feel relaxed as a newbie to the German language. He was very encouraging and we practiced speaking, listening, and reading skills.

1 Mauritian Creole lesson
A very good first lesson with a friendly teacher! There aren’t many resources for Mauritian Creole (and honestly most creole languages in general) so I really appreciate the amount of preparation for this class.

4 German lessons
I just completed my first official lesson with Ben today. His lesson was engaging and highly informative, and I learned a lot in just one hour.
Ben is an interactive and patient teacher. I appreciate that he provides helpful feedback and encourages me to step out of my comfort zone when I try to speak in German.
I had a lot of fun during Ben's lesson, and I look forward to learning more German with him.
Vielen Dank, Ben!
