I'm your DAF trainer for German! Become confident in public speaking, creative writing, and mastering language exams!

Hi! I'm a freelance language trainer and teach German and English in language schools, companies and private all over Berlin and online. I'm also a certified DAF teacher from the Goethe Institute. Teaching brings me joy and there's a beauty in language learning!

I love to challenge my students; I help them to think out of the box, to be creative when it comes to connecting words and phrases, and to use every area of the mind when forming a thought into spoken words.

I guarantee my students a fun, interactive, juicy class and assist in preparation for tests, public speaking and creative writing.

Besides German language books, videos & audios I use current topics from politics, culture, history, sports, depending on the interest of the students. Nothing is more boring and discouraging than using topics that are of no interest to them!

Extra information

it's good to have a strong internet connection, I share all material online. A notebook is ideal for writing mind maps and getting creative!

About Me

Teaching was a thread that ran through my whole career: I started by studying Biology/English to become a teacher, "upgraded" to a PHD to do some awesome research in the US, Singapore, and yet, I loved to teach (science subjects and German) because it was fascinating to me to see how folks learn, to witness a progress and to share their joy when things finally clicked!
I became so captivated by my success in teaching that I ventured into the "real professional" German language training, I enrolled as DAF trainer from the Goethe e.V. and I successful teach German in language schools, companies and also private.
Some students are managers/accountants who work with German customers and therefore I teach them business German, some are migrants and want to settle in Germany and therefore I teach them in specific integration courses, some are young professionals who want to start working in Germany or want to enrol in university and so I assist them in exam preparations, some are school kids in international schools and need some help with their daily German and so I train them to succeed in conversational German.

Education

Teaching Studies in Biology/English
Diploma and PHD in Biology

DAF certificate from the Goethe e.V.
certificate of eligibility for teaching integration course (BAMF-certified)

I worked in the US, Singapore and since 2017 in Germany as a freelancer

Experience / Qualifications

Elise
German tutoring by graduate university
University graduate in German language and literature (Master of Arts in German with specialization in Medieval Languages and Literature) with a solid experience gives private German lessons for all levels. Courses adapted according to the needs of the student. They aim to consolidate concepts, fill in gaps, prepare for exams (maturity, compulsory school leaving certificates, entrance exams to gyms, university, Goethe Zertifikat up to C1) and / or learn about language. For school supports: It is above all a work on the long term. Therefore, any exercise is explained in detail, which can make its execution slower: the quality is priority to the quantity in order to obtain an optimal result in the long term. Students bring their own course material (notebooks, books, audio CDs, dictionaries, assessments, etc.). It is important to note that my presence and explanations alone are insufficient to obtain satisfactory results. That's why I take the time to "learn to learn" effectively. For conversation classes: Topics are based on interests and / or specific needs for exam preparation. I give special importance to pronunciation, fluency and vocabulary. I usually correct at the end of a conversation exercise with detailed feedback, this to avoid blocking and work on fluidity. Depending on the level of the students and / or their expectations (preparation exams / assessments / desire for improvement for example), I work on the choice of appropriate words, grammatical accuracy, the ability to formulate more or less complex sentences. For exam preparations: The courses offer to acquire solid tools to learn how to write, to comment on literary texts and a methodology to work on the oral comprehension. The student will have to bring his own booklet of exam preparations available in all bookstores. For the Gothe Institute examinations, the Cornlesen exam books are particularly suitable. The other alternative would be to download AND PRINT before the beginning of the course an examination copy of GOETHE INSTITUT available on the site of the institute itself. For the oral comprehension: work from visual audio views downloaded from the DEUTSCHE WELLE website, which offer various recordings adapted to all levels, with a very concrete approach. The student acquires long-term fluency not only in oral comprehension, but also enriches his basic vocabulary through exercises. I am also working on the oral tests of the Goethe Institute to familiarize with oral. For the work of the written expression: I begin by explaining in the first lesson some methodological tools to acquire writing skills. The student has the opportunity to start writing during the course or do a writing exercise on duty and give it to me to correct (send by email or at the beginning of the next lesson). The corrections are explained in detail. In addition, at the time of booking, the student can send me a draft copy before the lesson so that I can meet his needs even more quickly. Apart from my presence with the student, any course involves a preparation time before and after the lesson, especially for the work that I correct. My goal is to design an individualized course, so I take the time to write detailed comments on corrected work or tips to ensure maximum success for everyone. In addition, each student can contact me at any time outside the course by email if necessary. Feel free to contact me for more information.

ENGLISH AND GERMAN CLASSES FOR WRITING AND SPEAKING
​English and German are two of the most dominant and essential languages nowadays. Growing up bilingual with these two was a challenging, humbling and exciting experience. Now I would like to share my knowledge on effortlessly switching between them with you! The lessons will be hands-on, but easily understandable and true-to-life, so you can go and use what you've learned right away! There will be homework, and I place great value on pronunciation, as that is what makes or breaks a language "performance" in my eyes. I will try and use whatever foundation and experiences you have and integrate that into the course so that you will be able to make better connections and learn faster. You and I can figure this out together! <3
