I have been tutoring for more than 10 years. I was born and raised in Europe, then I went to live in Brazil for almost ten years, where I studied Cinematography followed by an MBA in Marketing, and additional studies in Music Composition and Arrangement. As a tutor, teacher and translator, I have worked with the Brazilian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the German Consulate General and the German Ministry of Justice.
In my free time I like playing music, surfing, skating, hiking, and cycling. I love music, movies, languages and art.

What is your teaching philosophy?
A good teacher is a good listener.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
In a first session I always try to create a bridge between the student's previous knowledge and the new material.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
By recognizing their thinking, reasoning, problem solving and learning, and then giving them practical tools to organize their studies.
