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

Great experience! Highly recommend.

Karin quickly and easily understood the challenges my high school freshman was facing in German 2. After the session, he was very happy. We have more work to do and will definitely be calling on Karin!

Amy, 1 lesson with Karin

Very knowledgeable and patient.

Karin was very patient and helpful with me and my son who has ASD. We learned so much during the first lesson and we are eager to have more chats with her soon. Vielen danke, Karin!

Great lesson

Karin was profession, on time, and helped me a lot. She went over each assignment I had and helped me address each issue. Great tutor and really helped me fix my issues on sentence completion.

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. But I am grateful that we can cover the basics that will reinforce what I (assume) I already know. I also liked the fact that during our session we could depart from the text and discuss questions I had concerning current readings which I had a difficult time understanding. We also talked out current Germanic culture which will go a long way in adding substance to what the text offers. After our hour-long session, Karin e-mailed me supplementary exercises which will aid me in determining gender on noun declination. That was more than I expected. But it shows that she is very interested in helping me attain my goal of traveling to Germany, next year, to visit with cousins I only met once for a brief time. It can be daunting finding a good, i.e. patient language teacher. I know because my first tutor was disorganized and had a haphazard way of teaching German. All learning, especially a language, requires discipline and a way of marking progress. Karin has that intangible skill. I’m looking forward to our next session.

Great tutor!

Karin is helping me prepare for a year as an exchange student in Switzerland. We are working on conversation that will be useful in my daily life. Karin is flexible with scheduling, presents relevant material, and is supportive and encouraging. My German improved from the first lesson and it fun to see weekly improvement. Karin is great to work with!
