Claudi from Germany, currently Philippines

Hello :star_struck:

I am Claudi. I am 37 years old and I was born and raised in Germany.
After finishing 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 worked as a Manager in the Real Estate branch. :nerd_face:
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 :weight_lifting_woman: :dancing_women:.

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 :surfing_woman: :palm_tree: .
Ive got a bit stuck there :sweat_smile: before Ive decided in May 21 to take a little break from my tropic chill lifestyle :sweat_smile: and I headed back to Germany. Here, I will stay now for a bit to prepare my next chapter in that amazing life journey! :star_struck:


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! :innocent:
That’s why I completed my 120h TEFL certification course to teach foreign languages. During Covid I`ve started teaching English online as well as the local kids on Siargao island.

Since January this year I`m onboard with Chatterbug and have taught more than 150 lessons already.
I 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?! :wink:.

I’m looking forward to tutor you soon! :star_struck:

Greetings from Munich,
Claudi

Hahahha… very cool!!! … It’s so funny, that “WHOM” is usually only used by German speakers. :sweat_smile: … Now, I can even understand my boyfriend much better. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
