Heidi - bilingual English and German teacher

Hi there!

My name is Heidi and I’m originally from the UK. I’m actually bilingual and am happy to say that both my English and German are accent free :wink:

As I moved to Germany a long time ago, it was easy to start my teaching career at an early age,
helping other pupils in school :wink: I then started teaching English regularly about 20 years ago (boy, I’m old), working with private students, language schools and also for companies as an in-house teacher. I started teaching German about 3 or 4 years ago. Teaching just comes naturally to me and that’s why I never actually worked in my ‘proper’ job as a graphic designer after studying.

Currently I only teach - online and in real life. During the day I mainly teach ESL (English as a second language) or DaF (Deutsch als Fremdsprache) and my mornings and evenings are reserved for teaching Yoga and Pilates. I love the diversity of all my classes and helping people in so many different ways. I’ve been with chatterbug since the very beginning and have taught nearly 900 classes with round about 200 different students.

Why should you take a class with me? I always have a smile on my face and am very patient. Obviously I can help with grammar but most importantly I think the fact that I am both a native English and German speaker helps me see little subtleties or nuances in words and phrases that non natives might not see. Thus helping you get the best out of your German (or English) lesson.

By the way - también hablo español y puedo ayudarte aprender alemán o ingles.

Talk to you soon,

Heidi
