I was born in 1951 in Germany and lived in Hamburg until 1962 when my family moved to the USA (Austin, Texas). After graduating from the University of Texas (Bachelors degree in German and Linguistics), I returned to Germany in 1976. There, I received a teaching degree in English and Art at the University of Cologne. Since 1980, I have taught English in more than 30 companies and institutions. Based on   this wide experience, I developed my own teaching methodology and founded Team for Business English in 1998. Our training concept focuses on giving people the tools to reach their greatest potential.
