About Alexander

I am a professional language coach and teacher. I am specialized in training and coaching business professionals in various industries such as: manufacturing, medical devices technology, pharmaceuticals, photovoltaic systems, renewable energy, fiscal and environmental sustainability policy, advertising, tourism/hospitality management, supply chain management, food distribution, logistics and transport, automotive, agriculture, sales, product management, printing and more.

I spent approximately 3 years in Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany from 2011 – 2014 where I gained most of my experience. While there my profession was mostly geared toward helping professionals feel comfortable and confident in their speaking skills. This often involved customized courses designed to help them gain knowledge of the English language in their specific field. I have also helped people with contract negotiations, presentations, proposals, you name it I’ve done it. I also have experience teaching ESL (English as a second language) with all levels and ages. My youngest students were 6 years of age and my oldest 80 years of age. I have had students at all levels, some could speak absolutely not a word of English and others were fluent and just wanted to brush up on their skills.

I also have experience training students for University level courses in written composition, business English and various other courses including entrance exams such as TOEIC/TOEFL/IELTS/CAE Certificate and Cambridge Exams. In early 2014 I decided to move to San Francisco to be closer to my brother who is a professional chef in high end Japanese cuisine.

In my first three months there I was also teaching English as a second language, mainly to international students seeking to study and travel in the U.S. Meanwhile, thanks to my brother, I was introduced to the restaurant industry. While teaching I started working part-time in a fast paced, casual dining Mexican restaurant. After a short while I found the work so interesting I started working full time with the goal of becoming a general manager.

I have a Bachelor Degree of Arts in Philosophy with a minor in German. My language level in German is approximately B2/C1 (intermediate – fluent) in speaking and reading and a level A2/B1 (beginner – intermediate) in writing. I have a Professional TEFL Certificate from the TEFL Institute of Chicago (TEFL = teaching English as a foreign language).

I have a Professional ServSafe Certificate from the National Restaurant Association of Chicago. The ServSafe Certificate certifies I am specialized in auditing food safety standards and operations in restaurant. I enjoy fitness, hiking, outdoors, music, foreign languages, good music and drink, travelling, entertainment, good friends and anything artistic. Feel free to contact me if you want to know anything else about me! I am a very outgoing and approachable person, I love what I do and I love being connected to the international community.
