About Brigitte


Bio

I am a native German speaker with a Masters Degree in Education. I have many years of teaching experience in German and ESL.

I am a skilled and fun German tutor. In my opinion, being a native speaker is a minimum requirement for a good German tutor. However, I also believe that just being a native speaker does not mean you are also a good teacher. For that, you need teaching skills. I offer both, as I also have a Master's degree in Education.

I am a native German speaker with a Masters Degree in Education. I have many years of teaching experience in German and ESL.

I am a skilled and fun German tutor. In my opinion, being a native speaker is a minimum requirement for a good German tutor. However, I also believe that just being a native speaker does not mean you are also a good teacher. For that, you need teaching skills. I offer both, as I also have a Master's degree in Education. Furthermore, I have many years of hands-on experience teaching German both to individuals and groups. I have even designed and taught my own German course. I also believe that teaching a foreign language must be mostly immersion focused! Individualization is also key. Finally, I make the lessons fun and use lots of visuals, role-playing, and games.

I am also available to tutor ESL. Having once been an ESL learner myself, I have a lot of empathy and a clear understanding of the challenges involved in learning English as a second language. Once again, I utilize the immersion method, role playing, and games.

I look forward in helping you achieve your goals. I love to teach and am totally committed to giving you my best.
