About Karin

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. 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!

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.

German

First, I make myself familiar with your expectations. Then I recommend to you a suitable course program. And last but not least I want you to have fun learning German in an interactive way.

I am very flexible with my hours. I easily adapt to the individual learning goals.

A patient teacher

I had one tutorial session with Karin and I am very pleased with the way it turned out. I have some (remembered) German from when I was very young. I have to radically improve my conversational skills and from that build confidence to speak. I believe Karin will be extraordinarily helpful in helping me gain that confidence. In some ways, my German is a bit beyond the early going in the text.
