If you want to learn German I'm here for you
Mein Name ist Kristina Day, freut mich Sie kennenzulernen - pleased to meet you!
I’m your online German tutor and as for my qualifications when it comes to teaching?
Here’s a little about me:
I'm a German native speaker, born in the North of Germany where they speak the best German. 😀
I've lived in Bremen and Hamburg, acquiring impeccable grammar and a neutral "high German" accent.
I then moved to Munich in the South of Germany, because the weather is better, the mountains are closer and hey, the world's biggest annual festival is held there - the Oktoberfest.
It was here that I felt I found my calling when I started to teach.
I love being there for people, tailoring their classes to what they actually need and find interesting.
I love explaining grammar clearly and simply, however complex.
And I love teaching everyday, practical language that my students can use straight away.
I'm now based in London, England, and have over 20 years teaching experience.
In my classes there's always a lot of practice - Sprache comes from sprechen (the word “language" in German comes from the word “speaking")!
There's also always a lot of laughter - learning should be enjoyable and fun!
All my programmes are based on three principles:
Using everyday language that is relevant to you
Getting you to practice so you increase your skill level and confidence
Letting you tailor your programme to your own needs and interests
I've taken hundreds of complete beginners to a level where they can comfortably get around Germany, understanding signs, ordering food, talking to the taxi driver.
But if you're an intermediate students who needs German for work and you find
there isn't much study material out there specifically for you
then you've come to the right place.
I write my weekly newsletter particularly with you in mind.

I'd like to tailor the material to YOU.
