I'm a certified examiner for TestDaF and telc, and I specialize in test preparation (Goethe-Zertifikat, GDS, TestDaF, telc, ÖSD, Abitur, A-Level, and AP German) and application training.
I have been teaching German at one of the most prestigious language schools in Berlin for over six years. I hold a Magister (German equivalent to the master's degree) in Germanistics (German language, literature, and history) from Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (2001), and a teaching certificate of German as a foreign language from Goethe-Institut München (2010). Before becoming a language teacher, I was a journalist for six years at a local newspaper in Potsdam. Currently, I am working on my bachelor's degree in psychology at Fernuniversität in Hagen.
It would be a great honor and pleasure for me to become a part of your language and/or career project(s). I look forward to working together with you, and establishing a collaborative relationship that would inspire and motivate both of us!
How I Get Results
I offer both general and intensive German language courses, and specific classes of grammar, conversation, writing, test preparation, proofreading, presentation/interview preparation, and application training. (Please find here below the details.) My focus is on intermediate and advanced German learners (B1-C2), who need a higher level of accuracy and fluency in terms of exposition, argumentation and self-expression.
It is crucial to learn how the exam is designed, what types of knowledge are tested, and by what criteria you are judged. To ace the exam, we have to feed the examiners exactly what they expect to read and hear from you.
