About Marcus

I was born in Munich, Germany, grew up and worked there until I was 30 and I was convinced that moving to the United States and New York / New Jersey area was the right thing to do. I studied economics and had various positions in finance but my background extends to career coaching, arts, sports, writing a book and a variety of small jobs. But there is one common thing that never changed: I thoroughly enjoy teaching, advising and generally helping others. Personally, I am probably one of the most positive thinking persons you can find, I think it's necessary to enjoy and focus on the moment, have a balance in life and a set of goals to follow!

" Deutsche Sprache - schwere Sprache" - most people agree, German is a difficult language. Whether I teach German classes, economic classes or help my son mastering the basics in math, my strength is to break down complicated facts in a short and easy to understand way. I also focus on the practical side. Especially learning a language, it's important to be able to use it, so in my classes I pick every-day situations to discuss and work on. In order to keep it interesting, each class will be a bit different than the last: we could have a plain conversation, we could read a German newspaper article or magazine, the next time we will watch a short video clip (of course in German) and each time I single out a few highlights that we will repeat each and every time.

I taught German to many of my friends, colleagues and my (extended) family, involving all age levels. The most important factor with teaching a language is that the tutor knows his student(s) - what do they already know, what do they want to achieve, what are they interested in, how easy is it for them to learn etc. That's why I think an individual approach is very important. The result: I offer personalized, effective and fun classes from where you can take the most out of it!
