    About Me

    I am a former Goethe Institut teacher, currently a cross-culture consultant and a recent management graduate from the Vrije Unviersiteit in Amsterdam. I have a wealth of experience living and working in three continents (Asia, Middle East and Europe). I have primarily taught German to those from different age groups and nationalities. I have also worked with the British school, teaching German to elementary level German native kids. I also enjoy writing articles from the heart that resonate with my interests in cross-culture. I desire to use my talent in languages in helping those that are struggling with it or are enthusiastic about learning something new/ honing their skills! I have a wealth of interesting teaching resources that I have collected and used over the past 15 years and that cover all four aspects: listening, reading, writing and speaking.

    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

    In my one-to-one online courses, you will find a room just for yourself, where you will be coached within a German speaking setting. Each lesson depends on your needs and aims, which may be to improve in a specific linguistic feature as pronunciation, grammar, spelling or vocabulary. Or it may be to work on a specific goal, e.g. an official language exam, finding work in the German speaking countries or bureaucratic issues. Or it can just be conversation in order to gain fluency. In our class I will also point out what you can do during the week in order to further improve your German language skills and get closer to your goals and I will hand out to you the study material you need.

    Learn English or German with an American Graduate Student
    I am a recent masters graduate living in Turkey. I just finished up studying Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Solvay Brussels School in Belgium and have also spent years living in Asia, and other parts of western Europe. I have years of experience teaching English as a foreign language, as well as German levels 1 and 2 (up to B1). The focus of the class will be based on the student's needs. I specialize in essay writing, grammar, pronunciation, and speaking practice. With my English classes, we really focus on putting vocabulary in action, with homemade lesson plans that inspire conversation, debate, and chat. For lower-level students, we can practice the grammatical issues of English while improving our vocab and competency. For German, I tackle the subject as a language learner, catering the class to the needs of the students level. We start small and build big, learning the language and German culture as we go!
