As a German teacher
...I convey my excellent German language skills. I am a DaF-Teacher (DaF: Deutsch als Fremdsprache, German as a foreign language), certified by the Goethe Institute.
My mother tongue is German and I speak English, Russian, Spanish and French fluently, so I know what it means to learn a new foreign language.
