What I love about teaching online.

I am one of the pioneers of online teaching here in Germany and was one of the first trainers to qualify as an Online English Trainer back in 2002. Since then I have been constantly experimenting to find techniques and technologies that make it easier for my students to learn between lessons. The faster my clients make progress, the faster their business grows, so online learning is that secret ingredient that gives you more exposure, more feedback and more opportunity to practice and improve but at a time and place to suit you.

Online learning is great for providing the right support at the right time and in the right format. Sure you can design learning that your learners can work through independently, but real progress happens in combination with a trainer that is informed, inspiring and intuitive. I use Skype, Zoom, Virtual Classrooms and have used Moodles in further education but for me, it is not about the tools, but HOW you use those tools to get the right message across to your students.

I love crosswords and quizzes but I also enjoy getting students to really discuss topics in depth. That way I can simulate a business conversation situation and provide them with instant feedback plus more in depth learning support between sessions.

The BLEND of both online learning and outdoor training is ideal.

The combination of online and outdoor training has proven itself time and time again. I love the flexibility of not having to ‘waste’ valuable face to face time with grammar and instead taking full advantage of the steps to do grammar drills.

With a combination of both I can ensure that you are speaking a lot and communicating about your business and expertise without feeling that I am neglecting your reading skills for instance, because you can do that between the sessions from your favourite device. My preferred tool is WhatsApp, it is incredibly versatile and you don’t need to log in each time. One of my clients calls is Handbag English. It really is anywhere that you are, so you can take advantage of those small pockets of time to do something constructive and yet still sociable and enjoyable. Who said English couldn’t be professional and fun? Not me.

Blended Learning conventionally provides a mix of online and face to face training, but with my face to face part being outdoors in the fresh air, it is even more effective. I love that!
