I am a 32 year old communication professional living in Copenhagen, Denmark. I help Danish students get over their fear of speaking or just having more fun with the language.
Me as a Teacher
I have spent the last couple of years helping expats and students understand the Danish language and culture. I focus a lot on pronunciation, because you can get very far in Danish with basic frases, as long as your pronunciation is good.
I do not believe in repeating long lists of random vocabulary. Rather, I believe it is important to focus on getting the tools, you need, to quickly start interacting with people. That could be asking questions, learning how to get people to not change to English, growing vocabulary in conversations and so on.
My lessons & teaching style
Before our first lesson, I would like to know a little bit about you, such as your current level, why you are studying Danish and what you would like to learn. This helps me understand your needs and from where to begin.
I believe, the most important thing in language learning is to feel comfortable enough with a new language to start taking risks such as starting a conversation about a topic, you have not discussed before, or trying out a couple of ways of pronouncing before finding the right one.
My role in your language process is not to dictate grammar rules, but to support you until you feel, you can continue on your own.

Tatiana was a lot of fun to talk with. As others can attest to, she is very open, personable, funny, knowledgeable, and adapts very well to your level. Speaking is a challenge for me as I get nervous and slow down a lot, but I felt far more at ease during our lesson than I ever do when trying to speak Danish. She helped a lot with formulating more natural ways of expressing ideas that I had in mind. So, in short, she’s a great teacher and you should definitely try some lessons with Tatiana!

A challenging lesson (which is always good) where we had a discussion around a text that I read aloud and translated. Looking forward to more of these lessons where I am encouraged to express myself spontaneously and by doing improve my vocabulary and understanding of the language. Tatiana is a great person to speak to and learn from.

Attentive, supportive, friendly, open and patient - Tatiana has the perfect mix to help you with Danish! She has been very open to working on a learning method that I wanted to use and I'm excited to see where it will go. Tatiana has the perfect balance between personal and professional - we laughed a lot but we worked hard! She had some excellent advice and tips on pronunciation too. Excellent first few lessons.
