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 daily...

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. Over the course of 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 in an interactive way.

My passion:
I love to interact with people of all kinds of nations and ages. Communication is an integral part for 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 hear from you.

Bis bald!

Karin

Knowledgeable and fun teacher

Karin is a patient tutor who is very fun to work with. I've had several lessons with her and I'm learning quickly with her style of teaching. Also, I love hearing the cultural information she provides. I highly recommend her!

Susie, 13 lessons with Karin

Native German speaker and very knowledgeable.

I enjoyed very much her conversation and her technique with the simultaneous typing on the screen. It makes it very easy to illustrate. Karin teaches exactly what I need which is conversational German as well as Swiss German. As I am an intermediate level student, it allows me to improve my grammar and my listening comprehension of the language. She is able to send me a summary of the vocabulary and grammar covered during the lesson.

FRANCIS, 5 lessons with Karin

Knowledgeable and Friendly

Karin is an incredibly helpful tutor. She took into account my wishes for progress and has tailored the lessons to accommodate them. I have been able to progress quickly with German and she has provided numerous resources to help me. Since she is originally Swiss, she is also able to reference the vocabulary differences between Swiss and German dialects. I am excited to continue my lessons and see how the language develops.

Jennifer, 31 lessons with Karin

Patient and knowledgeable tutor for German and Swiss German

Karin had been tutoring me in both German and Swiss German giving me a solid foundation in German and then describing the differences in Swiss German. It is very difficult to find Swiss German tutors outside of Switzerland and Karin is a great tutor!

Michael, 6 lessons with Karin

Great teacher!

Karin has taught me so much and in a very interesting and challenging way. Her teaching strategies have helped me learn the German language quickly and correctly. I recommend Karin to anyone who is looking for a German tutor!

Develop interest in Swiss German

I was looking for a Swiss German teacher for quite some time for my son, due to a work-related move to Zurich. Luckily found Karin via Wyzant and started with a 30-minute sample class. My son has looked forward for lessons from Karin since then. Her way of teaching language develops interest in Swiss German. My son picked up language so well.

Ajay, 19 lessons with Karin

Very happy!

I am very happy that I am working with Karin and going over vocabulary and grammar. Practice reading stories is very helpful and she is very patient! I look forward to our lessons.

Lisa, 12 lessons with Karin

Very nice and good teacher!

We have only done about seven classes and I've learned more than I ever thought possible. She is a great, flexible and very nice teacher. She teaches both Swiss German and German German, which I find very interesting. 10/10, would highly recommend.

Irina, 10 lessons with Karin

Patient and flexible tutor

I was looking for help to pick back up my German and build on what I learned many years back. She was great to supply materials and flexible to adjust for my needs - she didn’t miss a beat. Thank you and I look forward to continuing working further!
