MY APPROACH & PHILOSOPHY
respect | communication | positive thinking
“My personal ambition is to be as comprehensible as possible while providing interesting and lively lessons. To me, teaching means to motivate every learner in his/her endeavor to learn a foreign language and to give the best and most appropriate support. I believe that speaking is a very important aspect of learning a new language, therefore, I value and focus on communication and dialogues. To practice fluency, I like to work with “chunks” (repetitive sentence structures). I feel most successful when I manage to inspire the creativity of my learners, and to witness their excitement from discovering, analyzing and practicing German intuitively, in a non-judgmental learning environment. Sometimes, all you need is a good vibe!”
I’M A LANGUAGE ENTHUSIAST, COMMUNITY BUILDER AND A LOVER OF THE GOOD LIFE.
Here’s what I truly believe in:
ATMOSPHERE | Because best learning progress is made in a non-judgmental, stress-free and positive learning environment in which learners are encouraged to try their skills without being afraid of making mistakes.
AUTONOMY | Let’s face it: Learning a foreign language means understanding a foreign culture and living it.
INTUITION | Because learning by doing and learning from experience while addressing the right learning style is the best way to learn.
"The proof of the pudding is in the eating."

I’m a Native German Teacher and Coach from West Germany and have 10 years of teaching and tutoring experience in adult education in Germany and Canada. Located in Montreal, QC, I aim to support German learners in their goal to effectively communicate in German by coaching them through the learning process. It is such a pleasure for me to share the German language with others along with learning each and everyone’s own unique cultural values.
My regularly participation in the Teacher Trainings "DLL" offered by the Goethe Institute deepen my knowledge and enhance my teaching skills to offer tailored classes to individuals and create lively and dynamic courses for groups.
I have a very deep passion for sharing conversations with people with diverse cultural backgrounds. It is such a pleasure for me to share the German language with others along with learning each and everyone’s own unique cultural values. I am tremendously curious about language-related and cultural-related peculiarities. That’s because I truly believe we are how we act.
That is why I love to create opportunities for learners to apply their language skills and organize activities in a realistic context in a German-speaking environment (e.g. Quiz, Scrabble-Match, Museum Tour, Preparing a traditional German dish, Movie Night etc.). We can only master a language by practicing and speaking it on a regular basis. Sign up for my newsletter to stay tuned about all future activities!
