My name is Claudi. I am 36 years old and I was born and raised in Germany.
After finishing my school, I studied Civil Engineering and Business Administration in Leipzig before I moved to Berlin and later on to Munich. In Munich I’ve been living for about 10 years where I’ve spent most of my time working as a Manager in the Real Estate branch.
Besides that I’ve been instructing TRX and Outdoor HIIT workout sessions as I have a BIG passion for sports and love to be in interaction with people .
In 2018 I decided to change my life as I wasn’t happy anymore. In order to become more clear in my mind and to get more distance from my old life, I bought a oneway ticket to discover the world and its different cultures.
My first destination was a Yoga Retreat Center in Cambodia where I worked as a volunteer together with the local people but also taught workout classes for the community members.
After that I moved on to Thailand and Indonesia where I completed my Yoga Teacher training and also started to learn surfing. Because of that I came to the Philippines where I got the opportunity to teach yoga classes while improving my surfing skills in tropic conditions .
Well, guess where I got stuck. - Exactly! I’m still here in the Philippines, where I enjoy the tropic and chilled lifestyle which is COMPLETELY different to my former life in Germany.
But I still have the wish to see more from the world … Maybe this year?!
Why am I tutor at Chatterbug now?
Teaching has always been a big dream of me as I have a strong desire to transfer knowledge to other people and thereby improving their skills. I want that a lot of people are able to have better chances while applying for a certain job or traveling around.
Being a Fitness instructor and Yoga teacher has been the first step. But I wanted more!
That’s why I completed my 120h TEFL certification course to teach foreign languages. In summer last year I started teaching English online and since November 2020 I’ve also been teaching the local kids here on Siargao.
And now, I also want to help YOU to improve your German skills. Let’s talk about the German culture and language but also about our interests and hobbies. Maybe we have something in common?! .
I’m looking forward to tutor you soon!
Greetings from the sunny Philippines,
