Born in Hannover, Germany I left for Hong Kong aged 29 to establish a trading company and I have lived here ever since. Over the past couple of years, I have backed down to some extent from our business to engage in German and English tutoring.
I completed a TEFL course and now teach IELTS exam preparation courses at a local school. This is an English language proficiency test for people who wish to study in or emigrate to an English-speaking country. I also teach TestDaf exam prep courses which is the equivalent in German language. In addition, I am working part time as a court interpreter for the Hong Kong judiciary.
In my free time I enjoy scuba diving, both locally and in the Philippines, and I like to go to Nepal on vacation. Although not much of a trekker, I’ve come to enjoy paragliding very much. If you are located in Europe, we are most likely to meet in the morning because of the time difference – looking forward to our next Chatterbug session!
