About Doris

SERVUS! My name is Doris, and I would love to share my passion for the German language and culture with you! Whatever level you are at, for whatever reason you want to learn German, I can help! As an experienced instructor at all levels, I tailor my lessons to best suit each individual (or group), taking into account prior knowledge, learning styles, learning goals, and available time frames.

Born and raised in Austria, I'm a native German speaker, who moved to the USA three years ago. I lived in Chicago for 1.5 years before moving to Santa Clara. My excitement for the German language led me to pursue a master's degree in publishing at the University in Vienna, followed by a decade long career as TV journalist. Finally, here in the USA I'm able to follow my second passion, teaching!

My experience includes:

- Relocation language training for individuals and families prior to moving to Germany, Austria or Switzerland
- Corporate language training for German and American companies with employees who need to learn German (mid to senior-level executives, sales and marketing personnel)
- Pre-trip language training for individuals prior to traveling to Germany, Austria or Switzerland
- Spouses, partners and significant others of German speakers who need to learn German for family purposes

I truly love helping students succeed and reach their highest potential. I can guarantee you that as long as your goal is realistic, with me you will be able to realize it!
