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. When he's not teaching, he enjoys playing the piano or exploring something new. Currently, he's currently studying Hebrew and Japanese and is fluent in German, English, French, Italian and Vietnamese.
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.
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.
Andreas has been living in Berlin since 2007 and studied Comparative Literature at Freie Universität Berlin. He started teaching German as a side job in 2016 and has been passionate about it since then. Apart from teaching, Andreas will also be working in the Transmitter office and is very excited about helping you out with your questions concerning registration and organization. You can ask him anything! Andreas is very interested in travelling, languages and art.
Hannah originally comes from the beautiful Ruhr area of Germany. She studied Roman studies and Sociology in Düsseldorf and then moved to Mexico, where she was working as a German and English teacher. In Berlin, she currently studies special education. Hannah has a weakness for food, culture and trance music. She therefore enjoys art exhibitions and can't get enough of Berlin's wide variety of food and music.
Katja is a real "Fischkopp" (description for a person from the North) with a great passion for traveling. She has lived and taught German abroad for several years and has since succumbed to Vietnamese food. For Katja, teaching German means conveying a positive image of Germany: "There absolutely has to be laughter in my classes." Otherwise, Katja loves to be by the water or in the forest - especially with her dog Alma. She also likes to be out and about in the jungle or pubs.
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.
Eva studied English and French in Innsbruck and was convinced the path of life would take her to the United Kingdom afterwards. However, life had a different script and made her path cross that of her future husband - a Berlin lover. Despite initial culture shock in Berlin of 20+ years, Eva somehow settled in and has adapted the local savior vivre to a certain extent. When she is not busy in her day job in the world of Consular Affairs or preparing German classes, she loves to cook and plan/make trips across Europe. She is very much looking forward to finally introducing the finesse of German humour to her students, especially Loriot.
