As a trained linguist, teacher, teacher trainer, and educational manager, I always act with mind and heart. Depending on your specific learning objectives and needs, I lean on a wide variety of approaches, methods and techniques for your personalized and successful learning. Having taught international learners of all levels and from all disciplines and work backgrounds for the past 12 years, I still love the magic of opening doors to new worlds. When I work with you, I make sure I listen closely to your needs to be able to deliver what you REALLY want. I enjoy training learners to use learning strategies for improved learning outcomes. In general, my teaching style could be described as interactive, engaging and personalized. Having prepared many learners to pass the ÖSD exam, I can do the same for you. I am also very experienced with teaching German or English for Specific Purposes, e.g. I help Academics, Technicians, Managers and professionals from fields including, Health, Finance, Marketing, and many more, to expand their career options. Besides German I am also fluent in English and Portuguese, which might help in your learning process. Whenever I am not working, I love to make music, practice yoga, and travel to Brazil or Portugal.
