    Teaching Approach

    * I have a long experience in teaching "German".

    * I teach different ages & deal effectively with learners of different levels:
    Beginner, Intermediate & Advanced.

    * I teach German for learners who ...:
    - are interested in learning German.
    - get prepared for an interview in German.
    - need German for the job.
    - need German to travel abroad.
    - need German for particular purposes such as mentioned above & others.

    * I am always up to date with the latest teaching techniques.

    * We all learn differently, therefore I use:
    - different learning styles according to the learning style of the learner.
    - multiple tools to work on the "4" Language Skills: Listening, Speaking, Reading & Writing.
    - PowerPoint Presentations, Audio, Video, Images & others so that the learners always have the opportunity to stay in touch with the language wherever they are, such as: on the way to work, during jogging, … etc.

    * I use also various techniques to improve the Speaking & Conversation Skills, such as:
    Brainstorming, Describing Pictures, Role Plays, Storytelling, Discussions & others.

    * The learners participate most of the time during the lesson because I believe that an effective teacher is the one who give the learners the chance to:
    - get involved into the target language environment.
    - communicate in the target language.
    - practice so that they learn from their own mistakes.
    - use all their senses to understand & feel the language.
    - express their thoughts in the target language they are learning.

    And I believe also that an effective teacher is the one who prepare them to "think" in the target language & to be "fluent" in it.

    Program Description

    * Die traditionelle Methode des Frontalunterrichtes ist jetzt vorbei. Der Lehrer steht nicht mehr im Mittelpunkt des Lehr- und Lernprozesses, sondern die Lernenden. Deshalb benutze ich ...:

    - nicht nur alte Unterrichtsmethoden, an die wir uns gewöhnt haben, sondern auch neue Methoden und Strategien (z. B. Elaborationsstrategien), die dazu dienen sollten, die kommunikative Kompetenz der Lernenden zu verbessern.

    - auch verschiedene digitale und interaktive Medien, weil der regelmäßige Einsatz digitaler Medien die Freude am Lernen steigert.

    * Da jeder Lernende seinen eignen Lerntyp hat, gehe ich auf die individuellen Bedürfnisse des Lernenden ein.

    * Sowohl während des Unterrichtes als auch danach bleiben die Lernenden in ständigem Kontakt mit der Zielsprache.

    Teaching Experience

    * Erfahrener Deutschlehrer mit langjähriger Unterrichtserfahrung.

    * Ich biete Nachhilfe für Lerner, die ...:
    - sich für Deutsch interessieren.
    - sich auf ein Vorstellungsgespräch vorbereiten.
    - Deutsch für den Beruf brauchen.
    - ins Ausland fliegen möchten.
    - Deutsch für bestimmte Zwecke brauchen, z. B. die oben genannten Zwecke u. a.

    Teacher Training

    * I have been awarded a scholarship in Germany for:
    - Project-Based Teaching
    - using Digital Media in teaching "German" as a Foreign Language {Deutsch als Fremdsprache (DaF)}
    - Cultural Studies

    * I have an accredited confirmation of participation in the course "C2" which means according to the Levels of The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR):
    Autonomous language ability
    Proficient Speaker: Mastery or Advanced

    * I have an accredited certificate from {Goethe-Institut} which is "Die Zentrale Mittelstufenprüfung (ZMP)". It is known from September 1, 2007 as "Goethe-Zertifikat C1 (ZMP)".

    * Translation Courses

    * Certificates:
    - Basic IT Proficiencies for school Educators
    - IT Integration Strategies Workshop
    - Follow-Up for Educators Workshop
    - Advanced IT Proficiency Workshop
    - Advanced IT Integration Workshop

    & others

    - Learning "German" is not difficult at all. It's exactly like the following example:

    - You are welcome of course to tell me.

    * "I don't have questions now in my mind, but I probably have other questions any time".
