About Jana

Hello guys! I am a 29 year old teacher from Germany, and currently working in a German immersion school in Brooklyn.

I moved to Brooklyn 2 years ago and from the beginning I have been giving private German lessons to children and adults as well as online courses. My job as a teacher is also all about teaching the German language. I like teaching my language in a social and fun environment as well as in my own classroom.

Before I came to Brooklyn I taught for 5 years in a daycare in Luxembourg. Part of my job was teaching the Luxemburgish language to older school children and children that came from other countries. I used different techniques based on the children's individual situation. A big plus besides studying is to listen to music or stories in the language you want to learn, especially kids enjoy doing that!

I prefer to communicate as much as possible with my students instead of studying too much grammar. I like to talk about vacations, the weekend, hobbies, food etc to start of with and while we are getting better and better we will focus on the difficult part of the German language. Grammar! Learning the language should come naturally. Of course do we have to go through some grammar and vocabularies but we will make it easy :-)

I hope to make German a fun language for you and promise to be patient throughout all our lessons :-)
I am very excited to meet you and to get to know you!

Swimming

I love swimming and learned how to do it with the age of 5. Since i work as a teacher i bring my kids once a week to a pool to get used to the water:-) as soon as they feel ready and brave i teach them how to swim.

Tennis

I was trained by my dad which is a tennis trainer for all ages since more than 30 years. I started to play with the age of 5 and never stopped since then. I enjoy playing tennis myself and i specially like to bring this sport to children. It can be a team sport as well as a competition sport.
