I am an English teacher with 3 years of teaching experience. I specialise in Business English, Conversation, and IELTS exam preparation. I have a Teaching English as a Foreign Language Certificate (TEFL) and have a Teaching IELTS Certificate. I have a bachelor’s degree in International Branding and extensive experience in brand marketing.
Over the years, I have helped many companies and clients build up and develop their brand departments. In the process, I created several award-winning campaigns. In 2017, I became a trainer for a leading Asian e-commerce company. I trained a team of 16 Thai employees to improve communication, build and maintain a branding department, and to collaborate more effectively with the upper US management teams. In 2018, I started working as a private tutor and as a tutor on different platforms, teaching Business English to adults and English to children. I have lived in six countries thus far (Australia, France, Germany, Sweden, Thailand, the Netherlands), and hence, I understand the difficulty of learning a new language especially within the professional realm of business and career. I am a native German but grew up bilingually, my accent is American.
In the past, I have helped students improve their interview, negotiation, and leadership skills. In addition, I was able to support all of them on their journey towards learning how to conduct themselves professionally within a corporate environment. Many of my students got hired and promoted and were able to develop in their leadership roles.
Lastly, I am also an ICF Certified Master Life Coach. I enjoy integrating this unique knowledge and process into my lessons in order to help my students embrace the proper mindset for optimal learning.
I am passionate about other cultures and languages in addition to being quite adaptable myself. I love helping others achieve their goals, seeing them thrive and I enjoy personally experiencing their growth and development. I always learn something new from each of my students.
I am friendly, and love meeting new people. At the same time, I am also goal-oriented, thorough, and analytical. I am fully aware that you have limited time. My aim is to help you achieve your goals as fast as possible.
I bring extensive experience and cross-cultural empathy with me. I have worked online for the majority of my English teaching career and therefore know how to engage and adapt to best enhance my student’s learning experience through the web.
How I work:
I always do an in-depth needs-analysis at the beginning of our classes. I find your exact pain-point and your exact goals. Then we set measurable smaller goals, so you can continually see your growth. I ask questions such as, 'Where do we want to be in six weeks from now?', and 'How will you be able to measure your progress?'. I am supportive but very much keep my eye on the goal so you don’t waste your time and get the most out of it.
My class will depend on what your needs are:
1. If you need to pass your IELTS exams I will help you identify problem areas and give you tips and tricks to ensure that you are more than ready on exam day.
2. Secondly we could focus on corporate and business English. We could do interview, networking and presentation skills and improve your leadership skills. I can teach you how to conduct yourself professionally in a corporate environment and I will help you successfully negotiate and succeed with promotions.
As mentioned, I have led and trained teams all across the globe and helped companies build up and develop brand departments and create award-winning campaigns and I can help you get there too.
3. Finally we could focus on conversational skills, I can help you improve your grammar, expand your vocabulary but also make sure you learn topics which are relevant to your every day life, so you continue learning outside my class.
I want to create an environment which is comfortable and interactive and that encourages your growth and self-esteem and help you get to your goals as soon as possible.
I look forward to meeting you in my class.
