All our tutors are native speakers specialized in different academic fields. Our different backgrounds help us provide a quite unique approach to teaching language. We teach with heart and mind and are always open for new experimental ways to work with language, but never lose sight of what's essential to language learners.
Vu loves travelling, contemporary art, exhibitions and food. After having lived abroad for a while, from New York to Naples, he worked for some galleries in Berlin as a curator and gallery manager and has constantly pursued his passion for teaching languages. He’s currently studying Vietnamese and Japanese and is fluent in German, English, French and Italian.
Hanno has worked as a journalist and translator. After years spent alone behind his desk, he decided to re-direct his focus to a job that involves more exchange and interaction with people. Aside from his work as a teacher and his interest in languages, Hanno is very much invested in music: As part of the German-Yemini pop duo Kabreet, he produces music that merges different musical genres and approaches.
Simone comes from a small mountain village in the idyllic Steiermark in Austria. She loves films, traveling, theatre & performance and music. After spending time abroad in Amsterdam, Budapest and Mexico City she landed on Berlin, learned to understand the northern German ‘Platt’ dialect and still gets excited today if she confuses the Berliners with her charming Austrian manner. She’s worked as a project manager in visual & performing arts as well as in film production, is immersed in the world of call centres and NGOs and produces beats and rhythms as an ‘Agent of the Everyday’. Favourite food: pumpkin seed oil, Mozart balls (chocolate balls filled with marzipan, nougat and pistachio) and Appenzeller cheese.
Freya originally comes from the far north and spent several years in Denmark studying textile design. Today she lives in colourful Kreuzberg and loves flea markets, travelling, knitting, interior design and of course teaching. To her, the best thing about teaching is to meet exciting and great people from all over the world over and over again and to accompany them as they find their language.
Language has always played an important role for Carsten, whether it was while working in political science, as an editor or as a translator. After all, as a yoga teacher, he discovered his love for teaching, and a short time later turned his passion for languages and cultural exchange into a career. When he is not teaching German or yoga, he goes hiking with his dog, travels to new places or cooks for his friends.
Nico was raised in a polish household, playing the double bass and piano. He gradually discovered his interest in German literature, which later on concluded in his studies of 17th century literature and culture in Lower Silesia. He left academia in 2018 to broaden his horizons regarding music production, Drag, human interactions, meditation and language teaching. He loves to talk with students about the „Matrix”.
Bettina was born in Regensburg. Before she decided to teach German she studied humanities, sold wine, published a children’s book, published a magazine and worked in a library as a lecturer/editor. Language functions like a puzzle and she hopes to help find the right pieces. Her interests include films, books and good food.
As an elementary school teacher Tamara teaches children reading, writing and arithmetics every day. She particularly enjoys her conversation courses at Transmitter so much because she doesn't have to demand her students to be quiet and can discuss culture, art and cuisine with them instead. Tamara studied European Studies in the Netherlands and in Turkey, has a thing for patterns, colors and floral art, goes to her yoga studio almost every day, rides across meadows on horses and occasionally strolls through Berlin's nightlife.
Luisa swapped the Carnival of Cologne almost three years ago for the Berliner Carnival of Culture, Facets and Diversity. Here, she completed her Masters in German as a Foreign Language and didn’t want to leave the city afterwards. Before Luisa decided to teach, she studied literature and theatre. She likes to let these two passions flow into her teaching and also enjoys the wonderful theatre landscape of Berlin outside the classroom. To balance this, Luisa likes to travel via camping bus through Europe. At Transmitter, she teaches and helps manage the office.
Nina lives in Berlin since 2017 and studied German as a foreign language and cultural mediation at the Free University. Originally from Düsseldorf, she studied German and philosophy in Cologne. Now she feels at home in the busy Neukölln. In her free time she likes to go to Berlins cinemas and theatres, listen to podcasts or do sports (preferably bouldern or yoga). She likes her classes to be lively and talkative - there is a lot of discussion in German, laughing and learning together.
