Über Mich

My name is Christian. I am a 33-year-old German native living near Berlin, Germany.
I work as a fulltime teacher for German online, with a professional background in teaching and design. I am combining both backgrounds to create my own materials in InDesign (a professional layout-software) and use my recording equipment to record listening materials in Audition for Memrise.

When I am not teaching I spend my time honing my skills as an artist, stream and continue to further educate myself about art, languages and science. I also like computer games, internet-memes (ask me about cats) music, history and are generally interested in many topics. Curiosity hasn’t killed me yet.

Why do I teach?
As someone who used to stutter and dislike languages (and especially the pesky grammar), getting into intense-self-studies to improve my English became my origin story. I worked as teacher for English in my hometown for 2 years afterwards, after acquiring a C2 certificate from Cambridge.
This encouraged me to also intensely study and re-fresh the German grammar, phonetics and teaching techniques (didactic) before starting to teach it online full-time. (it included a lot of head-shaking, and I’m a native). Since then, I had the pleasure to teach children, teenagers, students, and business people alike.

Through that, and my pursuit to master art I don’t believe in inherit talent, but pursued interest. Everyone can, through dedication, practice and fun, learn to speak a foreign language. If you don’t get something, I will find another way to explain it.

How I teach:
While teaching I adapt the lesson to your strengths, weaknesses and abilities and structure it along your goals and needs. This can include exercises and materials for grammar, pronunciation, role-plays for daily conversation, job interviews, working environments and language exams (Goethe Institute, TestDaF, Telc). I also can create new materials, exercises and additional courses on Memrise to help you to achieve your goal outside of our lessons.
