I grew up in the southern city of Stuttgart and studied at the University of Tübingen. I obtained my teaching degree in German and English with a focus on literary studies, linguistics, and education. Beginning in my first semester, I worked as an assistant in the department of German as a Foreign Language at the university and discovered my passion for teaching my mother tongue. Since then I have been following this passion and worked at different institutions in both the U.S. and Germany.
Besides teaching German, I am highly enthusiastic about coaching German teachers and helping them develop their full potential in the classroom while always learning from each other.
