italki teacher since Jan 4, 2022
I am German, lived and worked internationally for over 20 years.
I'm an international person back in my native country.
I have been teaching for many years in different capacities, qualified to teach German, English and through the regional influence also very familiar with the Swiss Standard German.
When I'm not teaching, I am busy with other aspects of international living and work.
Me as a Teacher
What I strive for as a teacher is to reach the set goals in the smartest way possible.
This means, I bring expertise and experience, material and techniques, but every learner is different - and their personal situation on top of it. I like to work learner-oriented, see what works for them. I involve the rich material that is available in language learning, at the same time I don't mind to omit material if it makes things more complex than necessary.
I can prepare you for tests, teach you the latin alphabet (and how to read in German). My favorite is, to teach the basics of a language. Because if that's well done, you have a strong foundation.
My lessons & teaching style
You and I will talk and set goals of what you want to accomplish. We will also take into consideration the work load of your regular job or family obligations. Ultimately, this is your journey, and I help and support you the best way possible. This means, we will agree on your preparation for the lesson as well as what you want to use the live session for. Every learner benefits differently form a set emphasis in the lesson. E.g. I can introduce a new grammar point to you and you practice for yourself. Or you read up first on new material and we then practice.
As for talking time, expect to do a lot of talking. No need to be embarrassed, I know myself how it feels to learn a new language.
