With my German business degree, equivalent to an MBA, and my 12 years of work experience as a dynamic top producing Real Estate professional in New York City, one of the most competitive markets in the world, I can guide you exceptionally well in acquiring an understanding American business culture while you learn English. Having also worked extensively in German companies, I can teach you the difference between German and American business cultures as well. I am also very passionate about the following subjects: Psychology, mental health care, healing with food, literature, writing, storytelling, art, music, theater, and film.
