My name is Thomas and I am from Germany.
What 3 words describe me the best?
Optimistic, Peaceful and Passionate
In my free time I enjoy doing several things. Learning languages is one of my favourite activities. I was raised bilingual with Russian and German and since then my interest in languages has grown steadily. My current challange is learning Japanese.
Besides that, I love to train Aikido. It is a peaceful Japanese martial arts that really helps shaping my personality.
I love to hold speeches and organise workshops. It is one of my goals to become a trainer :)
But there is much more ... Let's meet up personally!
Me as a Teacher
Are you bored of monotone textbooks? Are you tired of difficult grammar without conversation practice and fun? Look no further :) In my lessons, you will learn everything necessary to speak German fluently asap and reach your goals with fun!
My teaching journey started right after finishing school. I immediately flew to Russia and began working as a German teacher in a language camp. It was a really fulfilling experience to work with children and help them out with German. I vividly remember the sweet letters I received from my satisfied students :)
In 2020 I started to teach online due to the pandemic.
All in all I gathered around 3 years of experience with more than 50 happy students.
