Individualized German Online Tutoring for Business, School and Private

I am currently teaching German on a one on one base through individualized online teaching via zoom or any other online platform. I teach German grammar as well as conversational German and German for business and/or research. Please don't hesitate contact me to find out more about my teachings by asking questions and letting me know about your goals and concerns.
I not only speak German as my mother tongue, but I also have excellent English skills and have taught adults and children in Japan, the USA and France.
While living in Japan, I taught English to biologists of a biotech-company. For this purpose, I prepared current newspaper articles corresponding to the interests of the students and the teaching objectives for the classes.
In class, the students and I used these articles to study the language, discuss the vocabulary and grammar as well as the language style used.
In New York, I did not teach a language, but fashion design at the University (FIT Fashion Institute of Technology, NYC) for several years. All classes were taught in English with the student body consisting of international students, which required detailed preparation of the class. At the High School of Fashion Industries (HSFI), also in NYC, I taught fashion design and creation to students grade 9 - 12. Here too, the lessons were exclusively taught in English. For my teachings, I developed daily detailed lesson plans to not only make sure that the predetermined class goals were easily reached, but also to ensure that the class content was tailored to the students' needs and that a positive learning climate was promoted.

Hello, my class with Brigitte was great, we went through the basics and we shall thus continue once I am able to practice a little more. She was organized, kind, and took her time to teach me every detail of how to use the machine; and some basics in patters/ sewing patterns.
Brigitte was encouraging, inspiring and informative. I look forward to keep working with her.
Very helpful and knowledgeable! We enjoyed our conversation with her and look forward to her teaching our daughter and getting her on the right track.
Excellent teacher. Good to providing the necessary encouragement and feedback. Extremely knowledgable and supportive. Provides lots of ideas and pictures after lessons to build on session

Fun and effective German classes, Berlin and online
The best way to learn a new language is through natural interaction. And I believe that you learn most effectively when you feel at ease and when you are having fun! You will see that each class is individually adapted to your personal learning style and that you can improve at your optimal level, because you will always be challenged but never overwhelmed. I am an enthusiastic language learner myself and know the importance of a fun and knowledgeable teacher. Because I enjoyed learning with great teachers so much, I'm committed to be that for you in every class as well. With this German class, you will get • a very competent, patient, and fun tutor with years of experience • a very supportive environment • as many opportunities as possible to actually speak German, reflect on it, and improve • 3-4 hrs of homework per lesson (if you want!) • heaps of audio and video material as well as many exercises to help you practise all aspects of the German language • and you will see how manageable the German grammar actually is! Of course, you can adjust the classes to whatever you consider to be most relevant for you! If you like my approach and want to improve your German, write me a message or book a lesson with me! I would love to help you with your German, whether in person or online! You can start right away at any level!

Tunisian Arabic, culture and civilization for everyone
This class is about learning Tunisian Arabic to easily interact with Tunisians. Tunisian Arabic is not the first dialect you hear about when you start to learn Arabic, but it is indeed one of the most fascinating and useful, especially if you are working in Tunisia, your partner is Tunisian or you are into North African social studies. It occurred to you to be told that Tunisian Arabic has no grammatical or syntactic rules because it's not real Arabic? Well, that's not true! I can reveal you some tips to speak and sound Tunisian even if you don't know anything about Arabic. We will talk, play, watch videos from Tunisian tv programs and learn about language and culture. I also do transcriptions and translations of documents and videos into French and Italian for academic researchers, journalists, and entrepreneurs.

French tutoring / homework help and methodology
In this class, there is no pressure. You can be a foreigner, or a student in primary, middle or high school, I am the right teacher. I learned to read and write at the age of 5 while living in Spain. Indeed, after having studied in the literary section in a large French high school: Lycée Louis-le-Grand, I passed the Concours général de français, then I joined a selective diploma in French law and Spanish law. I am passionate about languages, and French is for me a great tool not only for communication but for meetings. Having had a very good mention in the Baccalaureate and having continued my studies in the legal sphere, I had to perfect a certain level in dissertation, commentary or simply writing. Spelling has a central interest in these different trainings and I think for all these reasons I am the teacher you are looking for!

English Tutoring for Adults - Beginners to Advanced
Hello! I have been teaching English for five years, to adults and children alike. I offer classes that are uniquely adapted to the students needs and their interests. My aim is to build my student's confidence, by following their line of inquiry — engaging in a rich, and increasingly challenging dialogue with the individual. My classes are for adults and professionals, who want to: . Develop and widen their vocabulary; . Need help preparing for an exam, a paper or an important interview; . Gain confidence in spoken English; . Attain a fluent level of spoken and written English We will begin by identifying the student's greatest interests — those subjects they are most curious about and topics that stimulate them. These topics will be "stimulators", fueling conversations and language activities that the student themselves will eventually lead. Then, we will identify the student's biggest worries regarding the English language — where they are confused, or tend to make mistakes. This will form the workshop part of the lesson, focused on overcoming tricky grammatical mistakes and revising more complex linguistic and phonetic errors. After 8 years of teaching I have found this tailored approach to be, by far, the most effective. I look forward to collaborating with you soon!

Homework help (literature, French, English, Spanish, history, Latin, philosophy)
Dear, My name is Marie and I am a student in the second year of literary preparatory classes (CPGE) at Lycée Louis-le-Grand in Paris (75005). My experience in preparatory classes taught me to work efficiently without neglecting quality; I was able to benefit from a multidisciplinary education which allows me to be comfortable in several diverse and varied subjects, several languages and I would really like to share my skills and my working methods with students, whether they are young ( primary) or older (college-high school). This is why I offer courses between 1 to 2 hours (to be adapted) of: - French (grammar, vocabulary, essays, ...) - letters (analysis of literary texts, comments, ...) - Latin (revision of declensions, conjugations, juxtalinear translation, ...) - English (grammar, vocabulary, oral, reading...) - Spanish (grammar, vocabulary, oral, reading...) - history (retrace the main stages, dates, events, ...) - philosophy (identify the main currents of thought, know the main theses, ...) Whatever the subject(s) chosen, I share with the student simple and effective tools and methods for a better organization of the work (revision sheets, chronological friezes, memo-technical means) adapted to his needs, abilities and level. For students who have difficulty concentrating or memorizing, I try to vary my methods and imagine a different way of teaching. I would add that I am fluent in English (level C1) as well as Spanish (level C1). I remain of course available for any question(s) or additional information(s) concerning my profile. See you soon !
