I am a German native speaker having grown up in the Saarland on the German French border. I have always enjoyed learning languages and I have been living and teaching in the UK since 1982. I have a teaching degree in German and French from the University of Saarbrücken and a PGCE from the University of Hull. I am a fully qualified teacher of German and French and I have enjoyed teaching both at comprehensive schools and a Sixth Form College. I have also taught adults of all levels and I always adapt my teaching to students’ individual needs. I am also a fully qualified ESOL teacher holding a CELTA Pass B certificate.
I would highly recommend Astrid. I’ve found her German sessions very productive and helpful and I’ve felt supported during the learning process. She has a breadth and depth of knowledge and provides clear explanations.
Super lehrerin ihr Verständnis der Muttersprache ist fantastisch. Auch ist es ok, wenn ich fehler mache.
Fantastic as always! Very informative. Really starting to feel like I'm understanding grammar and sentence structure.
We have done some general German speaking so far, but are going to concentrate on definite topics also as well as a little grammar. All well, I am enjoying the lessons.
Astrid is experienced and friendly teacher. I learnt a lot from her lessons. I recommend her to anyone.
