experienced tutor, finishing B.Ed. degree in English, Spanish, and German as foreign language
italki teacher since Apr 19, 2022
Hello, my name is Marie. I am 20 years old and I love to learn new languages and thereby get to know other cultures. Therefore, I decided to do an educational degree to be able to teach languages. I love to read, I'm interested in art, and like to travel. Apart from that, I enjoy dancing as well as other sports such as volleyball, Zumba, and yoga.
Right now I'm finishing my one-year-long stay abroad in Valencia, Spain. The study abroad period here showed me once again how amazing it is to be able to speak foreign languages and how important frequent practice is.
Me as a Teacher
I am already in my third year of my Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) degree in the subjects of English and Spanish. Additionally, I am studying German as a second/foreign language (DaZ/DaF).
I have been working as a tutor for three years now. I have worked with pupils of primary schools, high school students, as well as with adults studying at university or in vocational training.
In my degree, I also had several classes on TEFL (Teaching English as a foreign language). Of course, I will integrate the knowledge I acquired in these classes into my lessons here on italki.
My lessons & teaching style
I am teaching English and German classes here on italki. On the one hand, my lessons can focus on pure conversation, in which we talk about different interesting topics. On the other hand, I can also show you how academic writing works (e.g. essay writing) or show you how to do academic research. We can also turn to literature and discuss different texts. Contentwise, the lessons are quite flexible and can be adapted to the type of support you wish for. We will discuss what your language goals are and what would be the best way to reach them.
