Learn Danish with experienced native speaker
I have been teaching and tutoring since 1997.
I have taught at many different schools and levels as well as at a private university. I also have an extensive experience in tutoring private lessons to students of all ages (from very young children to elderly professionals) in their homes.
Finally, I have been tutoring online since 2006 when the opportunity to do so presented itself. This is something I have greatly enjoyed so far as it has given me the opportunity to "meet" students from all over the world. It's a unique chance to get to know different cultures and ways of thinking, which is something I truly like as I’m what one might call a "people's person".
One of my favourite lines from a book is by the amazing Elisabeth Kübler-Rosswho said: “The purpose of life is growth.” I really like this line as I truly believe that life-long learning is vital for our minds to stay alert and our soul to mature.

My main objective is always to have my students learn while enjoying themselves. Therefore I like co-operating with them to make sure I also respect their specific learning pace and wishes.
No student is the same, so lessons and approaches have to be personalized and adapted to each student's own needs to make sure they are happy with their learning process. This will in turn enable them to progress as they should.
First I like having an introductory chat with the student so we get to know each other a bit. This is for free and it helps me make an assessment of your level and goals which then helps me determine the material we need, so I can make an individual lesson plan that will suit each student best.
During the lessons we also work with an interactive white board (optional), which makes it even easier for my students to understand what I am explaining and it’s a good way to do exercises together. The board is very easy to use and it doesn’t require any download, but if you prefer not to use it that’s fine because then I just send the material via email or our Skype chat.
I like following lessons up with some extra help for my students, so I often provide personal notes on the grammar items they learnt as well as provide homework (if the student would like it).
I truly believe that good communication and a sense of humour is the key to all success, so I have chosen to build my teaching approach around this.
I provide all the material and books needed, so don't worry about it.
