I have taught individual learners of different social and cultural backgrounds, and learners with special needs. I enjoy getting to know my students and designing lesson plans specifically for their language needs.

I hold a PhD from the School of Education, University of Nottingham, and a Master's degree from the University of Jena, Germany, in German as a Foreign Language, English & American Studies and Intercultural Business Communication.
