I am a private language instructor based in Vancouver, BC who specializes in teaching Spanish, German and English to private individuals and corporations. As someone who has achieved fluency in multiple languages, I understand the challenges faced by my clients, and also how to overcome them.
Born in Germany and raised in a trilingual household in Canada, I obtained a degree in linguistics and modern languages. Through my studies, I learned how to teach proper pronunciation, grammar and cross-cultural communication at a professional level. The additional insights that I gained into the history, culture and literature of many countries have instilled in me a passion for languages that comes through in my work and in the results that my clients achieve.
Teaching since 2003, I have had the privilege of helping over 1,700 individuals from a multitude of backgrounds achieve their language goals. These include individuals looking to travel, study, work or live abroad. In addition, I have taught many business professionals in industries such as engineering, mining, social media, forestry and communications.
My self-developed curriculum takes a holistic approach to learning that includes all aspects of language acquisition. The tailored instruction I offer allows individuals to progress from their current level of comprehension as far and as fast as they wish, while focusing specifically on what is important to them.
