About Me

Mein Name ist Christiane. Meine Muttersprache ist Deutsch. Außerdem spreche ich fließend Englisch und Französisch. Ich bin in Norddeutschland geboren und aufgewachsen, deshalb spreche ich Deutsch ohne Dialekt. Nach dem Abitur habe ich Übersetzen und Dolmetschen am Englischen Institut in Heidelberg studiert und im Anschluss an mein Sprachstudium mehrere Jahre im Ausland gearbeitet.

Zurück in Deutschland habe ich mehrere Jahre für zwei internationale Unternehmen als Übersetzerin und Sprachdozentin gearbeitet.

Seit 2005 unterrichte ich Deutsch, Englisch und Französisch in verschiedenen Sprach- und Privatschulen, unterstüze Geschäftsleute und Expats beim Aufbau eines umfassenden Sprachwortschatzes und der Vorbereitung von Präsentationen und Kundengesprächen.

Schüler und Studenten bereite ich kompetent auf Prüfungen vor.

Besonders viel Spaß macht mir der Sprachunterricht mit Kindern und Senioren, in dem besonders das intuitive Lernen und der Spaß am Sprechen im Vordergrund steht.

In meinem Unterricht nutze ich gern interaktive Lehrbücher mit einer Vielzahl an praktischen Übungen. Auf Wunsch kann stets auch mit eigenem Material gearbeitet werden.

Christiane is a very kind person and a good teacher to children. Every lesson it is a suprise to have-))))
My mother tongue is German. I successfully prepare pupils, students and adults for upcoming exams and class work in accordance with the European Framework of Reference (A1 - C2). We review all major grammar topics using hands-on, interactive grammar exercises. We talk about the topics from your textbooks and read short texts on current topics to practice your speaking skills and to expand your vocabulary. Together we correct and talk about your homework.
Do you want to improve your English / French grades in a short time, work on grammar gaps, expand your vocabulary and practice active speaking? I have been working as a language trainer for English, French and German as a foreign language since 2005 and have been giving online tutoring for schoolchildren and students for many years. We work with your textbook and additional interactive exercises in which you can apply the grammar you have learned and consolidate your vocabulary. In class we repeat all major grammar topics. This will make you feel a lot more confident in English / French classes in a short time. You will find it easier to formulate texts yourself. We talk about the topics from your textbooks and read short texts on current topics to give you a comprehensive vocabulary and make it easier for you to speak the foreign language. Together we correct and talk about your homework.

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.

Popular and Professional English and/or Academic German, fun and easy!
I have taught English in France and Germany, to both students and adults. As a native speaker of English who has lived in both the British West Indies and on the US' East Coast, I can help you decipher anything from Downton Abbey to Dave Chappelle. As for German, I became fluent in the language after an intense Masters Program in Schleswig-Holstein, where I lived for 5 years. Thus, I am very familiar with the simplification and adaptation of the language. A practical but fun approach to the language, using associations already present in French or English, is what I think is best.
