I am a German language coach with extensive experience in higher education and a writing therapist. Currently, I teach German at Imperial College London and Brunel University London. Born in Austria, I studied German Philology combined with Journalism, World Literature, Film Studies and Sociology at the University of Vienna. In London I continued my education at the University of Greenwich where I obtained a PGDip in the Management of Language Learning.

The main focus of my work as a language coach and university lecturer is the practical implementation of learning theories – especially in the context of online courses. For my work at UK universities, I am proud to have received several teaching awards. I designed and taught courses at Brunel University London, Imperial College London, King´s College London, London Business School, Oxford University and Royal Academy of Music.
