As a qualified English language trainer, I work with some of the most well-respected language schools in Vienna and have been teaching business and general English classes from beginner to advanced levels for over 15 years. I have taught at major Austrian and international companies in and around Vienna such as EVN, NOVOMATIC, PES (AMS), Société Générale Equipment, Coca-Cola Hellenic, Symrise, etc. I have experience in teaching financial and technical English and English for the energy industry and have led seminars on telephoning, networking, and emailing. In addition, I have been leading IELTS and Cambridge exam preparation courses at the Language Centre of the University of Vienna for over ten years.
A near-native residing in an English-speaking household for over 20 years, I achieved PASS A in the Cambridge CELTA course (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults), which only about 5% of successful candidates reach. Furthermore, I have done the bachelor’s programme at Bremen University with Majors Teaching English and French, and participate regularly in teacher development courses. I have also completed a series of workshops on teaching business English held by the renowned author of Cambridge University Press-published textbooks Marjorie Rosenberg. My command of German is at C2 level. I also speak Russian, French, Spanish and Italian and am currently studying Arabic.
Since the pandemic, I have become particularly interested in using digital tools in class and have created an extensive collection of online exercises and games for grammar and vocabulary practice.
