In my lessons I focus a lot on speaking skills, whether it is ad hoc conversation or set topics. Speaking is one of the hardest things to master in a foreign language, but also one of the most useful. Having said that, I always try to adapt to the needs of my students. I want to help you with the things that are important to you. Whether you prefer reading texts or books, listening to songs or watching videos, practicing for an exam or interview,... I am here to help you with your goals.
As a teacher I am very patient and want to make sure that my students really understand, before moving on. Everybody learns at their own pace and with their own style. Further I want you to feel at ease in my lessons. Only if you enjoy learning you will continue and succeed.
On grammar: as little as possible, as much as necessary :) I will introduce new grammar only if I feel you have trouble expressing yourself (oral or written) or have trouble understanding texts. However, if you are completely new to German, there is unfortunately no way around it. In any case, I can provide clear explanations to make German grammar easier to understand.
See you soon!
