italki teacher since Nov 1, 2017
I am Austrian, and have a passion for my mother tongue. German is a beautiful language, and it is key to master it well if you plan to live, work or study in one of the German-speaking countries.
Me as a Teacher
In my lessons, we speak German! I have been teaching German since 2000, to refugees, asylum seekers and people who need German for their work visas. I have work experience in teaching business German, public speaking and German test preparation for all levels. And I follow polyglots because they have interesting learning techniques!
In my lessons, I use videos with topics that the students prefer, because I think that we learn best when we deal with topics that we love to talk about.
I am happy to help with rescheduling classes up to 1 day before the scheduled time, but I do not accept last minute changes.
I do not teach children on italki - people under 18 years.
My lessons & teaching style
I teach German and do the lessons mostly in German.
Before each lesson, the student works with a video, makes a summary according to their level and learns the vocabulary. During the lesson, we will speak about the video, make role plays and correct the text together. Like this, the student gets trained on hearing, writing and speaking German. :)

Simply the best! Stefanie is a great teacher, and I wholeheartedly recommend her. The lessons are interesting and productive, and after each one I'm even more motivated to learn German. My only regret is not starting six months earlier.
