About

Language teacher

with over 10 years' experience

When I moved to the US in 2009, I did so to attend grad school and become a professor of German literature and culture afterward. What I did not expect was that I would discover a new passion, and that was teaching. Specifically: making learning another language both entertaining and gratifying, encouraging students to step outside their comfort zone and develop their (overall) skills, watching them grow academically and as a person.

 

For ten years, I taught German—language, culture, literature—at US colleges. I got to hone my skills through professional workshops, research, peer feedback, student evaluations, and, of course, learning by doing. (Oh, and I also got my Ph.D. in German Cultural Studies in 2015).

 

Now that I am back in Germany, I am offering language learning solutions tailored to each student or group. This, frankly, is a dream come true: sessions that take into account individual preferences, strengths, and needs. And all of this happens online, so you can connect with me conveniently from your home, no matter where you are!

I'm also a writer and game designerMy cat is named Quinn. She's about eight years old. I'm interested in herbalism and a real Kräuterhexe. My preferred way of preparing coffee is French press and moka pot. Taking walks through the woods keeps me sane.

On Saturdays, I unplug as much as possible.
