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

Excellent Teacher

I've wanted to learn Swiss German for a long time and I've considered studying in Switzerland several times. With the help of Karin, I am now learning the language and hope to really use it in the country one day. Karin is a wonderful teacher and I'm pleasantly surprised at how much I've learned in just a few weeks. She is always helping me with the pronunciation, is helpful and patient, and I would definitely recommend her to anybody looking to learn Swiss German! I'm already looking forward to my next lesson.

Wunderbare Lehrerin

Ich wollte schon seit einer langen Zeit Schweizerdeutsch lernen und ich habe es mir mehrmals überlegt, in der Schweiz zu studieren. Mithilfe von Karin lerne ich jetzt die Sprache und hoffe, sie eines Tages im Land wirklich zu verwenden. Karin ist eine wunderbare Lehrerin und ich bin so überrascht, wie viel ich schon in einigen Wochen gelernt habe. Sie hilft mir ständig mit der Aussprache, ist hilfsbereit und geduldig und ich würde sie allerdings empfehlen! Ich freue mich schon auf die nächste Lektion.

She has a good attitude with the advanced learner. Always a good session with her. Never any problems. I hope to continue our conversations.

Incredible teacher!!!

I just had a lesson with Karin and am looking forward to continue learning from her. She is a native of Switzerland and is able to teach the nuances of Swiss German, high-German, and even phrases common to Austrian German speakers. She makes learning a new language fun! You can’t go wrong with using Karin as a tutor!

Patient and good with young kids

Karin has been a great tutor for my daughter, who did not know anything about German at the beginning. Karin was able to trigger the interest of my daughter to learn, and was always nice and very patient with her. Karin even provided us some study materials ahead of the class for us to be better prepared for the class. Very responsive to our requests. High recommended!

very helpful

Karin is very helpful and patient with advanced learners. I ran into problems with brain freeze where I could not remember any vocabulary. She helped me get through these unpleasant moments.

Excellent German Tutor

Karin is an outstanding German tutor. She has been helping me refine my German skills over the past few months and I can say that she always comes to class with a smile on her face, she is always prepared to teach and she is constantly patient.

Knowledgable and patient tutor

Karin is very patient and knowledgeable of the German language. She even sends material before the lessons to help my son. Working with her has improved my son's understanding of the German language.

Brad, 6 lessons with Karin

Provocative and patient

If your an American with the patience to learn the German language the Karin is your Lehrerin. I prefer to see my words register on her facial expressions when I experiment with new vocabulary. I obsess with foreign languages. I expect my instructors to cultivate my obsession. Karin gets the job done.
