    About Me

    I would describe myself as a careful and enthusiastic teacher who can help you make progress. I have worked for over 14 years in the Basel / Zürich region, with many of the major multinationals.

    I believe Conversation & Correction is important to develop your language, so I generally work with higher levels B2+ and offer private lessons or group lesson options.

    Advanced English Conversation Colloquium depends on sign ups, up to 6 people (Fr.-37) private classes are more intensive, (Fr.-81).
