I am an experienced educator with over 10 years of international teaching experience in English, German, and cello peformance. Having studied cello and music education in Germany for six years, I have taught students and performed as a musician throughout Europe, North America, and parts of Asia. I have also taught English and German as a second language to all levels, from beginner to master-level courses at university in Germany.

I have a German master's degree in cello performance/music education and a second master's degree in 'Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages,' from the University of Sunderland, England. Still, I am 30 years old and bring a young and modern approach to all the subjects I teach. My teaching style is personally tailored to meet your specific needs and learning objectives. One size does not fit all, in clothes and in lessons!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Cello

I began playing cello at the age of 12, almost 20 years ago. I attended a specialized high school for performing arts, where I majored in cello. I went on to study cello performance in Germany, where I earned both a BA in cello performance and a combined MA in cello performance and music education. I have taught and performed as a musician throughout Europe, North America and parts of Asia.

Public Speaking

I hold a master's degree in education, which included a number of courses on effective presenting and teaching skills. I have also taught both communicative skills and presentation skills courses at the university level, for both BA and MA students.
