I am an American who has been living and teaching English in Germany since 2008.
In the States, I was a grant writer, community development project manager, and I worked in adult education and training. I have a Bachelor's degree in Speech Communications and received my first TESOL Certification in 1994. In 2019, I completed a 120-hour TESOL course in order to become recertified after 25 years.
If you want to improve your English for business, then I am the perfect tutor for you.
I have worked with non-native speakers of English from not only Germany, but also from Japan, Columbia, China, Italy, and Portugal - to name a few other countries.
Is improved pronunciation a goal of yours? Let me help you with that. Do you need to develop your Soft Skills in English? With me, you will achieve that success.
Public speaking, document correction, job search, socializing.
Whatever your international communications needs, I provide high-quality, personalized lessons designed to meet them.
Some of the industries that I have worked with include: automotive, hospitality, tourism, travel, telecommunications, media, marketing, public relations, real estate, finance, retail, product development and music.
I work with "realia" (the materials that you actually work with) not photocopies of workbooks. Together, we will write/improve your emails, as well as prepare reports and presentations, while improving your speaking and comprehension skills.
Are you a student studying abroad and need some language support around your school work?
I would be happy to provide you with the help that you need. My experience as a university lecturer will prove useful for our work together. I can also help you with your CV and Cover Letter.
It would be great to connect with you!

Teaching English As A Second Language
Would you like to learn how to do Small Talk? Then, you would want to develop Soft Skills. Do you know what Soft Skills are? Soft Skills are the conversational skills that you use to improve the flow of communication between people. Using them in conversation helps you to be more persuasive, to display greater confidence, to be seen as being more "likeable", and to show others that you care about what they have to say. Effective conversation in English is more than just vocabulary and grammar. I can help you to improve your ability to say what you are thinking and feeling in conversation with confidence.
Over 30 years of experience in the business world as an employee, consultant, coach, entrepreneur, and freelancer in various environments (corporate, small business, international, media) and 11 years of experience teaching Business English in Germany, where I currently live.
When I taught English to the employees of a major automobile manufacturer in southern Germany between 2008 and 2014, my main responsibility was supporting those workers (both office and factory) in successfully communicating with their counterparts and partners around the world. The success of the company depended on it.
I can also help you to communicate effectively and productively with your international colleagues through improved speaking and writing skills.
"Pressed for time?" Meeting? Presentation? Travel? If you need to learn, improve, or practice your English quickly, get in touch. I can help you to achieve high-quality, lasting results in a short amount of time.
I am a native English speaker from the United States. I'm originally from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
I have helped corporate employees with their relocation activities while also preparing them for the new roles and responsibilities awaiting them at their new job site. I, myself, am a world traveler. I would enjoy sharing your adventures with you.
