About me

I study languages at the University of Cambridge and I am very passionate about my subject, as proven by the 7 languages I currently speak: German, Croatian, English, French, Spanish, Italian, and some Icelandic. I have always had a particular interest in languages, and I believe it stems from the fact I grew up in a bilingual household, learning both Croatian and German. Ever since then, new languages just kept piling on and I firmly believe that one can never learn enough about them, as the...

I study languages at the University of Cambridge and I am very passionate about my subject, as proven by the 7 languages I currently speak: German, Croatian, English, French, Spanish, Italian, and some Icelandic. I have always had a particular interest in languages, and I believe it stems from the fact I grew up in a bilingual household, learning both Croatian and German. Ever since then, new languages just kept piling on and I firmly believe that one can never learn enough about them, as there are always new rules and new words to discover. My love for languages goes hand in hand with my love for travelling. While, of course, it is always nice to be home, I enjoy travelling very much and have been to various destinations in Europe, Asia and North America. Next year’s destinations include Chile and France, and I am very excited to further my knowledge of Spanish and French as well as the countries’ cultures. Naturally, languages are not my only interest. Here at university, I am a member of various societies and sports clubs, such as American football, handball, the Cambridge Union, the Croatian Society, and others. I enjoy discovering new hobbies, doing sports, and meeting friends.

About my sessions

I have been tutoring students privately for about 7 years now, and have always had positive results. Because I grew up in Germany and went to school there, I believe that I am able to offer you a fresh perspective on your subject and help you with methods that you might not be familiar with but that will help you gain a deeper understanding of the language. I find it important to customise the lesson to the pupil, as every individual learns in a different way. It is therefore my priority to f...

I have been tutoring students privately for about 7 years now, and have always had positive results. Because I grew up in Germany and went to school there, I believe that I am able to offer you a fresh perspective on your subject and help you with methods that you might not be familiar with but that will help you gain a deeper understanding of the language. I find it important to customise the lesson to the pupil, as every individual learns in a different way. It is therefore my priority to find out what tutoring style will work best for you specifically, rather than presenting you with a blank, general lesson structure. The only aspect that will stay the same in every lesson will be speaking in the target language, because the only way to be truly comfortable with a language is to use it on a regular basis. This will also serve as a great way to measure your progress, as you will grow more confident with every conversation we have! As a native German speaker and someone who has studied French for 10 years, both in school and uni, I have no difficulties with either language at any level and you will profit greatly from talking to a fluent speaker. During the lesson we will go over whichever aspects of the language or the exams you wish to revise, whether it is basic grammar or analysing a specific text.
