Get to grips with German (Berlin)

Are you struggling with German? I understand, I've been there myself ;)

I'm an English girl who got obsessed with all things German, did a degree in it, and now lives in Berlin with a German boyfriend, teaching German and English.

I specialise in helping students 'unlock' the language by focussing on demystifying the key structures and systems underpinning it, with straightforward and bitesized explanations.

I teach from an 'English-speaking' perspective, focussing a lot on typical errors of English speakers - but also on areas of similarity, which can be a real short-cut.

My teaching is heavily influenced by the 'Pareto principle' - the '80/20' rule which essentially states that 80% of results come from 20% of the work we do. What this means in language-learning terms is that focussing on the the 'big wins' - the most high frequency vocabulary and structures, the core principles, the content most relevant to YOUR goals as a language learner - can bring your language to a whole new level in a very short space of time.

As a teacher, I'm very responsive to your interests, needs and personal areas of difficulty. Whether you want to be able to survive everyday life, pass an exam, make small talk, or read a newspaper and listen to the news without difficulty, I'm here to help you.

I can teach at my home, yours, or somewhere in-between.

Just get in touch to discuss details.
