Claudia has always been passionate about teaching, and has enjoyed tutoring and teaching ever since her own teenage years. Whether it be with clients, friends or even with her own children, the satisfaction gained through assisting children and young adults to achieve their goals and success, has always been a key driving factor behind Claudia’s motivation to teach. She strongly believes in learning through enthusiasm for the subject at hand. She tries to not only teach and explain the concepts, ideas and techniques essential for academic progress, but to also simultaneously stimulate enthusiasm and curiosity for the subject at hand. She aims to provide an enjoyable and tailored service to each individual, through a patient, structured and dynamic approach to learning. Having been born and brought up in Frankfurt, her interest in German culture, literature and cinema is something she additionally tries to reflect and incorporate in her teaching. Being bilingual and a native German speaker, she has also learnt to appreciate the true differences and difficulties in the German language and aims to convey her knowledge of these to the full benefit of her tutees. Her former tutees have obtained places at Dulwich College, Sydenham High School, Alleyn’s and Trinity School. Additionally, she also has experience of tutoring English as a foreign language to German students in Germany.
Claudia is currently working as an account executive for an introducing broker and a physical trading company in the metals business. During the exam season, Claudia also works in schools, helping to organise public exams. In her spare time, she loves reading both English and German literature, going to the cinema, and travelling. She is also very active in a variety of sports including running, tennis, skiing and yoga. On top of all that, she also loves looking after her four rabbits!
