About Karin


Bio

Hello,
My name is Karin. I was born and raised in Baden, Switzerland. However, Miami is my home. I love the unique melting pot of Miami. No wonder so many German-speaking tourists, investors, and patrons are visiting here.

Experience and background:
I grew up in the German-speaking part of Switzerland. Hence, I was exposed to the language throughout my entire schooling years. In my professional life as a doctor's assistant and later CEO administrative assistant I needed to communicate...

Hello,
My name is Karin. I was born and raised in Baden, Switzerland. However, Miami is my home. I love the unique melting pot of Miami. No wonder so many German-speaking tourists, investors, and patrons are visiting here.

Experience and background:
I grew up in the German-speaking part of Switzerland. Hence, I was exposed to the language throughout my entire schooling years. In my professional life as a doctor's assistant and later CEO administrative assistant I needed to communicate daily in the German and English language. I studied business and finished with honors. For more than ten years I have taught numerous people the German language. Some only need a little guidance to have a more pleasant traveling experience to Germany. Others keep on coming back to master fluent conversation and writing.

Area of teaching:
I live in the Miami Falls area. We can either meet at my location or I can drive to you or I can start teaching you via Skype.

My approach:
I'm passionate about tutoring. My goal is to provide an atmosphere that will facilitate an ongoing level of improvement in my students' speaking proficiency. This is the way I teach. I am flexible with my time and willing to adapt to my students' needs. As a first step, I get familiar with your expectations. Secondly, I recommend an approach that fits you. Thirdly I want you to have fun and learn interactively.

My passion:
I love to interact with people of all kinds of nations and ages. Communication is an integral part of humans to get along harmoniously. Expand your horizon with a new language. Let's start a dialog and chat in German or Swiss German.

In my spare time, I love staying healthy and keeping my neurons active with visits to museums, good music, and cultural activities.

I'm fluent in English, German, and Swiss German.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

Bis bald!

Karin

always dynamic

Always a dynamic session. Never a problem with communication. Will always repeat. Would recommend to advanced learners. Her voice is very stimulating and comforting.

Chris, 13 lessons with Karin

Flexible and Patient

I am a hyperactive speaker when it comes to German. Karin is fully tolerant of my chaotic speaking. She's inviting and enticing with the creative use of the German language. I will never speak this language as a native "Einwohner". But I can learn survival with her.

Chris, 13 lessons with Karin

Good conversational practice

We had a good conversation about my bakery job. Karin is good for Americans trying to risk their pride for a better conversational practice in German. I fall into knowledge pits sometimes. But I know how to recover with her.

Good for advanced speakers

Overall doesn't judge or restrict conversational flow. If you're advanced then you will feel the challenge of communicating with a native speaker. She takes a non liberal American perspective with my development as an American German speaker. Our sessions don't feel like an import.

Energetic and patient!

Karin is working with our 5ty grade dual immersion student. She is engaging and helpful. Our son really enjoys her lessons and appreciates the extra help on assignments. She works well with kids and makes learning fun.

Melissa, 13 lessons with Karin

Positive and patient tutor

Karin was able to get me started learning German. I needed to learn basic conversation and was incredibly positive and patient. She also supplied me with a lot of content to practice.

Jasmine , 2 lessons with Karin

Very patient and helpful.

Karin did a great job of knowing how to balance giving help when needed and letting me try to find the words. And, she is very patient and friendly! The lesson was enjoyable and I look forward to taking another lesson.

Always Friendly

We have a flow...no tension all language focus. She's good for the advanced learner. Never had any problems with setting up appointments. Hope to continue.

Incredible First Lesson

Karin instantly perceived and adapted to our ideal learning style. Being that my wife and I are both teachers, we definitely appreciated her sound pedagogical approach to our learning needs. Our first lesson was effortlessly communicative, educationally edifying, and engaging from the first moment until the end. We can't wait to see where our journey with Karin takes us!
