I am inspired to teach students who have a specific motivation for learning another language. This becomes the anchor or context within which to find meaning and purpose in enjoying the journey.
Hello or rather, Hallo! I heiße Ingrid Crause. Ah, already you are wondering what that strange looking character ß is. It's something called a "scharfes S" or "Eszett". No worries, as it will become second nature to you when you study and fall in love with the German language. My goal in teaching German IS to have German feel like second nature to you. I hope that my methods, enthusiasm and command of my heritage language encourage you to want to keep learning on your own between our sessions and beyond. I am also a health and wellness coach. I appreciate what staying balanced with all you do in your life might require. Engaging in another language takes time and focus. Is now the right time for you to learn German? If yes, let's book a 30 minute trial lesson! Los geht's! Danke!
I have been teaching and tutoring German for 11 years. I have had a valid teaching certification in German K-12 for the state of Michigan as well as a minor in teaching Health. My professional experience is also in the health and wellness field with professional health coaching. I also teach fitness classes in studio cycling, TRX and am a personal fitness trainer.
