Learn German via Skype.
Learn at the comfort of your home.
Hello, my name is Kathrin and I am the German Skype tutor. I am an experienced German teacher and have had the opportunity to work in both public and private school settings. After graduating from teacher training college, I began working as a teacher in a public primary school. I loved my work but I knew that I wanted to open my own language training school. After starting up this language school, I decided to cut back on teaching so that I could spend more time with my young children. Now that my children are older, I am interested in taking on more students.
In order to give more personalized attention to my students, I generally teach one-on-one or very small groups. I try to be as flexible as possible to meet the needs of my students. I teach most of my lessons using Skype so the students need to have access to a good internet connection and the ability to use Skype or other similar programs.
The conversation lessons can take place via Skype, FaceTime, Hangout, Zoom..., depending on the preference of the student. We also have a shared online document where I put any necessary information before the lesson and make notes in during the lesson. My lessons are generally conversation based and work on improving fluency. Although I am fluent in several languages, during the lesson, I speak only German with the student in order to train their brain to think in German.
I am a nature lover, an outdoor enthusiast and strive to live a healthy and active lifestyle. I try to ride my bike as much as possible and love to explore my surroundings, in my daily life as well as in my travels. I am a people person and love spending time with my family and close friends. I also enjoy getting to know my students through our weekly Skype lessons.
